Go Into Politics.
"Keep out of politics."
"I never have anything' to do with
These are samples of quotations not
infrequently heard in any community.
The man who is responsible for them
should have a tag tied to his coat tai
Inscribed: This is me, I never take
any part in politics. Im a sap-head
who nermits the other fellow to eat
the sugar. I'm related to Benedict
Arnold and don't care a damn what be
comes of this blamed country."
A law should be passed that would
have as a penalty "the work-house for
ninety days for any man in any com
munity who failed to vote if it were in
his power to do so."
The time has arrived in America for
those who have neglected the polls, to
wake up and perforin their civil duties.
It is as binding upon a man to vote "s
it is to pray and even more so.
Moreover, this act should never be
performed simply for the purpose of
satisfying selfish ambitions. On the
contrary, patriotic motives should
prompt the action.
The seeker after ofllee is not of the
stamp of these, of course. Therefore
he is not a good example for the youth
to follow. But the young man as well
as the old should make it a duty he
owes to himself and the state to be
come a participant in all civil affairs.
Every man should know the status of
his community; what it owes and how
it pays; who conducts its affairs and
how; who are faithful to public trust
and who are working for self. He
will then be able to judge as to whom
he desires to have serve him. He will
then drive the party politician from
his door as he would drive away black -snakes.

Good of the Devil
An editor died and slowly wended
his wav down where he supposed a
warm reception awaited him. The
devil met him and said: "For many
years you have borne the blame for
that bad spelling that the printer has
got off in the paper. The paper has
gone for a SI a year, and alas! The
printer has bedeviled thee for wages
when thou hadn't not a farthing to
thy name. People hath taken thy
paper without paying for it, and
cursed thee for not getting out a bet
ter sheet. Thou hast been called a
dead beat by railroad conductors when
thor hast showed thy annual pass to
their envious gaze. All these wrongs
thou hast borne in silence. Thou
shalt not enter here." And with
tears of joy, tho editor turned away
when Satan muttered: "Heaven is
his home, and besides if I let him in
hero ho will bo continually having
trouble with his many delinquent
subscribers, and thus create discord
in my kingdom." Ex.
