We. the Republicans of Sherman county,

bounded prosperity whieh prevails in every
section of our country.
We call upon the people to witness the
transition from Democratic misrule and limit
less disaster to the long line of Republican
achievements and national successes, both
domestic and foreign.
Every promise made by tne Republican
party during the decade which has just passed
has been amply fulfilled and every prophecy it
has uttered has become an accomplished fact
to the extent that every legitimate enterprise
within the limits of this great nation nus met
with unequaled and unparrelled success, till
our nation has become the marvel and the
admriation of the world.
We congratulate President Roosevelt upon
the wise, far seeing and able policies that has
marked his course, and upon his efficient and
honest administration as the cheif executive
of the United States.
We congratulate the people of the state of
Nebraska upon its honest, able and efficient
administration, and we express our pride in
the phenominal development of the state at
large and the thrift and prosperity evidenced
everywhere within its borders.
Republicanism can find no better encomium
than the contrast constantly presented between
Fusion and Republican 'ule within the state.
In the interests of justice, on behalf of
patriotism and good government, we pledge
ourselves anew to the time honored principles

cordially invite all friends and admirers of
