Democratic Newspapers on Plutocratic
Tho democratic party should be
tho most democratic institution in
tho world. It should be the com
mon meeting ground, without social
barriers or, trespass signs, where,
men of all minds could get together
and determine that elusive ideal
which is expressed in the simple
words, "the greatest good for the
greatest number." . Unfortunately,
the democratic iJarty has not always
come down or measifred up, to this
unmovable middle standard. In its
political seisms, social divisions or
economic controversies it has too
often strayed away from this watch
tower, which was built up with in
finite, labor by the founders of the
republic. But the watchtower is
there and it behooves the democratic
captains to lead their divisions and
cliques from the deserts and the val
leys, back to this middle ground, to
undertake their new responsibilities.
Tho rich man should not be execrat
ed because of his wealth or the poor
man, ostracised because of his pov
erty, but they should be given an
equal chance, as far as personal
worth would allow, in the making of
a government . to represent the com
mon gobd. We should not allow our
selves to forget that the democratic
party should be tho most democratic
institution in the world. Towner

The democratic party is facing the
greatest crisis in its history. 'It may
by hook or crook obtain control of
the country because of. the dissatis
faction with the republican party, but
if, in gaining control, it "harmonizes"
all the Undemocratic forces that seek
to ally themselves with the party and
is controlled by these forces, then
there will be no democratic party
after the people turn it out next time.

from 7 Acre Tract
r.t Mr., A. J. Dovers, of Sioux Falls, S. D., bought a tract of land
at .Mission, Texas, and in ONE YEAR'S TIME realized from 7
acres more than enough to pay for the land at present prices
Last year, Mr. Devers, on seven acres of land out of the Mis
sion tract cultivated by his tenant, W. Volz, harvested something
llko over 700 bushels of potatoes, which sold at an average price
of $2 per crate of GO pounds (one bushel) f. o. b. Mission. They
commenced clearing the land November 2, 1909, started planting
January 20, 1910, and completed shipment of the crop April 20,
But this amount of money received from his potatoes wasn't
ajl o Mr. Dover's profits by any means. Just as quick as the no
Jiatoes, were out of tho way the land was planted to cotton an
?r, bK money maker at Mission all grown and harvested
Within the same year.
That's the beauty about farming and gardening at Mission. No
matter how largo or small your tract may be, you can follow ono
crop after another tho whole year around, and grow two three
and four crops a year on the same ground. '
Mission has wonderful opportunities for making quick money

through big crops buyers are reaping the advantage of the con

to share in these profits if you buy this year.
