THE OUS'JOER COUNTY REPUBLICAN
The welcome to Roosevelt at
his home coming on the 13th will
be most fittitg. The bay of New
York ti arbor will be crowded
with boats bearing his host of
friends , while his greeting on
land will be hearty and unpre
cedented. It will be a nonpartisan
tisan welcome as it should be
and yet all will have in mind that
it was as a republican governor ,
vice-president and president that
he gained his fame. He will
continue to a loyal republican
and give his unqualified endorse

The so-called unpopularity of
President Taft seems to be con
fined to the muckraking maga
zines and those disgruntled news
papers which did not succeed in
intimidating Cougrss to give
them free print paper. The
people * are with the president ,
and are fast finding out his
worth. They are learning to
love him for his sincerity , his
rugged honesty and his devotion
to the beat interests of all. Rare
ly in public life do we find a

He is doing much for his
countrymen , and in return , they
should do much for him. They
should resent imputations against
his motives and actions , and
rally to his support. They
should sec to it that in the
coming primaries and conven
tions only loyal republicans are
\ nominated for Congress and
State Legislatures , and then
they should devote their test
energies to the election on No
vember 8th of those nominees.
The elections this ye'ar are im
portant in the extreme. See to

Taft will compare favorably

There is much yet to be accom
plished during the next session
of the Sixty-first Congress and
the two sessions of the Congress
following. For that reason the
House of Representatives of the
Sixty-second Congress should
have a substantial republican
majority to work with the senate
and president in rounding out an
administration that will redeem
every republican pledge. A
democratic house means a do-
nothing Congress. A republi
can house means a continuation
of the splendid work so well
Rarely , if ever before in the
history of our government , has
so much been accomplished in a
single day for the good of the
people as was attained by Presi'
dent Taft on the 6th of June.
On that day he persuaded the
representatives of praqtically all
the western railroads , which was
acquiesed in the next day by the
eastern roads to withdraw their
recent increase in rates filed to
become effective on or after June
1st , 1910 , and to file no rate in
crease until after the passage of
the railroad bill.
In return for this concession ,
the Government abandoned the
injunction suit against the West-
Trunk Line Association. By
this m itual action , a great com
munity of shippers will gain im
mediate relief for months , if not
altogether from a threat , of tre

I can recommend ns highly as Doan's
Kidney Pills. In July 1907 , I gave n
public statement in their favor and at
this time I gladly con firm it. I had
acute pains thtough my back aud
kidneys and nt times sharp twinges
darted throughout my body. Every sud
den move caused an attack of pain aud I
was often so lumc aud sore that it was
almost impossible for me to straighten.
The kidney secretions were unnatural
and distressing in passage and if allowed
to stand , deposited sediment , I had
hcadaschcs , 7clt restless and was unable
to get my proper rest. Doan's Kidney
Pills procured at Haeberle's Drug Store
helped me from the time I began them
and continued use entirely relieved me.
During the past three years I have taken
Doaujs Kidney Pills , whenever I have
bten in need of a kidney medicine and 1
have received benefit. I am in eightieth
year and I owe much of my present good
health to the use of this remedy. "
