Nels. Burdiek remarks with a great Lump i his Throat that the National advocate is to be published at card. If brother hitch comic can out general us und absorb our business it is his Good Man i gement and Good Fortune and we have no i in lit to . Vve Lii tvo often observed that the introduction of rivalry in business awakens activity and promotes Thrift. A town with one printing of face is like a City with one store the addition of another firm attracts business Tho new and the old enjoys increased pros peril y. Further the town that has an encouraging word for every new business that seeks to establish itself in its midst will grow while tie town Whoso citizens allow political or religious prejudice to Warp their vision and Aro thus induced to play the game of freeze out will dwindle and decay. Somo of our Alliance subscribers Aro afraid that we cannot to a Good Alliance advocate and at the same time edit a partisan Greenback Sheet. Now dear friends Lake heed to what we say. Vve were a Farmer and a grander before to Wero a Green Backer. In becoming a Gice Uback eve we did not abandon one principle taught by Tho Grange. We simply joined a party Whoso distinctive principles Wero identical with those o the Grange. All grangers did not so judge. We have no Contro i Versy with them. Any Granger or Alliance member May belong to either party. We do nut question any Man s political Creed from an Alliance stand Point nor have we any scheme of Prosel Yting on fool. Vve say to Farmers organize yourselves As Farmers. Div Cal yourselves As much As possible from political prejudices and study your Nec Ossi Ilea so dial political and busies. It is not desirable that Tho Alliance Rugui Lauon should be. Used As a p lit ii til trap to catch Gudgeon. In Elligen men need not be so caught. But the Alliance May serve As a plat Torin where banners of diff Ere i political creeds can meet Ami i Frol hurly and courteous spirit Conn Bel together Lor their Mutual welfare. Neither is it Wise because a brother May Tran Grotts Tho rules of prop i in to lose your own head or los heart in the institution. By a i Means lot Tho Farmers keep up tin it own distinctive organizations As grangers As alliances or As simply Farmer s clubs. The columns of our paper Are open to All who wish t. Use them in the furtherance of Farmer s interests. To shall put mor. Und More thought and attention it.

Yes when you get right Down to it that s what s Tho matter with Weller. He is too country look aug Thero is an odor of soil about him a Sprinkle of hayseed in his hair that shocks the sons abilities of Tho dudes and then his Mattar of last straight to the Mark Way of taking right hold of Fth set the fathers and the Cour itry need is terribly offensive not know How to do it Type of politicians tie Farmers Butke fourth District will not de sort their Gallant Champion because the ftps thetis and dudes of an effete affect to scorn him.
