—'— — —""""" ; "v Jesse James Show a Fake. The Jesse James - show advertised for-this -place- next-week, is—reported by newspapers over the state to be a fake. Our exchanges last week were full of "roasts" on the show. The Telescope was offered cash advertising for this show, but would not accept-It.—We-will-not lend the inttuence- of this paper to promote the interests of such an alleged company - " The Clyde Republican, among other things, says of the show: "It was simply the rankest aggregation of amateurs that ever assembled under canvas in Clyde" The Smith County Journal says: "The. Jessie James show advance man is here today contracting with the newspapers for advertising the representatives of bank robbing and outlawry. The" Journal turned the advertising down. This newspaper for one will not lend assistance to lowering the standard of society by encouraging the boys and young men in following the lives of the James gang. The newspapers should join together and put the mark of disapproval on such exhibitions by refusing to assist in getting crowds for the Bhows, but they won't."
