"From every section of the countrv como .is-
Burances in a practical form that Commoner
readers are in hearty sympathy with the million
army plan. Every reader of The Commoner is
asked to co-operate in this effort to widen The
Commoner's sphere of influence, and to that
extent advance the interests of democracy.
Cut out, sign and return the certificate
printed on this page for your own membership.
Or if you do not care to mutilate your copy of
The Commoner send in a request asking for a
number of blank certificates and they will be
forwarded to you, 'thus enabling you to give
your acquaintances an opportunity to join in
the work of building up the "army of a million
plan" and enabling them also to secure The
Commoner from now until November 1908 for
only sixty cents.
Extracts from letters received at The Com
moner office follow:
Rev. W. M. Kain, Rock Creek, Ohio. If j'ou

I think I can prevail-on to become members of
your grand million army.
M. Braughler, Santa Rosa, Cal. Please
send me at once a number of certificates one
hundred at least and I will see that they are
placed in democratic hands and hope in this

The Commoner ever since I have been taking it,
and handing to my neighbor, Mr. Yayman, who
sends them in.
George Ray Batt, Annapolis, Cal. Please
find herewith ten certificates, making in all thir
teen. If you have not reached the million mark
by the first of May send on ten more. It is a
real pleasure to work for The Commoner as it
stands for all that is best for the American
H. C. Bell, Marshall, 111. I send" you herein

it is suggested by some of your subscribers that
each democrat who is a subscriber to your paper

two years ago I subscribed for your paper for
two of my republican friends wlilch your books
