Thoughts From an Old Richardson
Grand Junction, Colo., Oct. ■">,
Falls City Tribune Dear Editor
— I sec from the press of Nebras
ka that the issue in the state is
largely on the county option ques
tion. and especially m Richardson
county. Now Mr. Editor this is
when some people carry their pol
itics in their stomach and act ac
cordingly, They do not consult
their conscience, their moralitj
or their pocket book but vote with
what class of people; do they dare
If I am correct you will tinrl
many business men opposing
county option, claiming it takes
from them self government, giving
the farmer and tax payers over the
county a right to say what their
town shall permit under license.
Now we know, you know, and they
know, that every person who has
been buying from Montgomery
Ward and all such houses are on
their black list, and not one of
them could receive their support
in h convention, or election from
the fact that they -.re boycoting
their home town. If the town is
entitled to their trade, is not this
person entitled to say what kind
of a town he shall give his trade
to? I have known men in the
west end of your county who
have bought hundreds of dollars
worth of goods from these houses,
just because their town was a wet
town. Now, I never believe in a
boycott but I do think every per
son, who gives a town his trade
should tiHve as much interest in
what kind of a town it shall be as
he does in what kind of a post
master they shall have. Would
they think for one moment if they
were taking a vote to see who
shall handle their mail that the
rural patrons would be excluded
from having a voice in the elec
tion? Are these farmers to give
a town their loyal support, when
they send out on the highways
some of their finished products
from their saloons with teams
ran by maniacs made by those
bouses. Now, business men, if
you don’t want the farmer to say
your town shall be a safe and
decent place to do business in
don’t ask him to refrain from buy
ing his goods elsewhere.
Mr. Bryan says,shall the people
rule (of course this is net to in
clude thesouth) now will the men
on his ticket in Richardson county
give the people a chance to rule
on the saloon question. I fear not,
though I do not know who are on
While I mn no longer a citizen
of Nebraska I still wish her to re
main a progressive and up-to-date
stale, but if she don't adopt county
option sle will surely fall down,
and Hint bard.
The moral wave is raising her
surfs higher each year and she is
lapping the Rockies and Colorado
is going to keep right in the push,
and give Taft her vote and equal
rights to all men and women.
Voters of Richardson county,
give your vote to men who will
give you a right to vote on any
and all questions that interest you
in any way.
The brand new dramatization
of “.lane Eyre-' is even more in
teresting than the novel. The
literary cobwebs ot a former
generation have been brushed
away, and much of the gloom of
the book has disappeared before
the touch of bright, snappy
comedy of the lighter goasamy
sort. In spite of the novel
treatment of the book by the
author, the basic story remains
and the reading public will be
glad to see their old friends
with bright smiling faces and in
new clothes. The scenic pic
tures are in keeping with the
splendid company which is pre
senting. “.Jane Eyre” will be
the attraction at the Gehling
and Manager Gelding’s best
ottering tins season. Friday,
A Display of Enterprise
A visit to the cemetery at Stella

half alive. Foley’s Kidney Remedy
makes healthy kidneys, restores lost
vitality, and weak delicate people are
restored to health. Refuse any but

Go to the blood. If you are to drive
out rheumatism. It Is more than skin
deep. A Wisconsin physician, Dr.
Shoopdoes this with his Rheumatic
Remedy-and with seeming success.
Rub-on’s says the doctor never did
cure rheumatism. It is more than
skin deep—it is constitutional always
Because of this principle Dr. Sboop's
Rheumatic Remedy is perhaps the
most popular in existence. It goes by
word of mouth from one to another,
everywhere. Greatful patients gladly
spread resuits. It is an act of human
