Long ago the Scotch learned this.
The sturdy old Scotchman must be
amused at the recent "discoveries" that
oatmeal is the best food in the world.
Our scientific men have been making
e-xperiments which prove that Ameri
cans cat too much fat and grease and
not enough cereals.
The Scotchmen say: "Look at our
nation as proof. The sturdiest nation
on earth." Still we have one good point
to make. Wc make better oatmeal than
They buy Quaker Oats and consider
it the leader of all oatmeals to be had
anywhere. If you arc convenient to
the store you'll probably buy the
regular size package. For those who
live in the country the large size family
package is more satisfactory. Follow
the example of the Scotch; eat a Quaker
Oats breakfast every day.

The march of improvements in
Plattsmouth city must continue. A
democratic administration has been
engaged for three years in remedy
ing the defects of previous adminis
trations and at the same time it
has reduced taxes enormously. Mr.
Taxpayer, kindly look up your tax
receipts and find the rate you paid
before the last democratic adminis
tration went into power and see
what you are paying now under the
democrats. You will find an enor
mous reduction in the rate and that
is sufficient cause to justify you in
voting for the democratic candi
dates. -Plattsmouth Journal.
The above editorial is intended to de
ceive the taxpayers of this city. It is
intended to cover up the leakages in
the city treasury. When this adminis
tration took charge of the city's affairs
there was $16,000 in the city treasury,
and the "Scavenger Suit" brought in
about $28,000 of back taxes, making
about $44,000 more cash furnished to
this administration than prior adminis
trations or will be to subsequent ones.
The question id what has become of the
$44,000. The treasury is overdrawn on
the road fund $5100 today.
