I have known him intimately for many years and I have a peculiar feeling for him, because throughout that time he worked for the same object, with the same purposes and ideals. I do not believe there could be found In all the country a man «o well fitted to be; President. He is not only absolutely learless. absolutely disinterested and upright, but he has the widest acquaintance with the nation's needs, without and within, and the brtfadest sympathies with all our citizens. He'as emphatically a President of the plain people'as Lincoln, yet not Lincoln himself would be freer from the least taint of demagogy, the least tendency to arouse or appeal to class hatred of any kind. He has a peculiar and intimate knowledge of and sympathy with the needs of all our people—of the farmer, of the Wage earner, of the b-jsiness man, of the property owner. No matter what a man's occupation or social 'position, no matter what his creed, his color, or the section of the coufitry from which, be comes, if he is an honest, hard working man who tries to do his duty ^ toward his neighbor and toward the country, he can rest assured that he will have in Mr. Taft the most upright of representatives and the most fearless of champions. ! Mr. Taft stands against privileges and he stands pre-eminently for the broad prihciples ,of American citizenship which lie at the foundation of our national well being. , Jin?

The lola Boosters Ijad a nice time at Humlioldt yesterday and certainly let the people of that handsome city know that lola is on the map and llve^ lier th.-in ever. The Boosters and all other lola people probably three hun- dn-d in all were met on tl:e outskirts of the city and e.scorted through the city by the Humboldt band, a excellent musical organization. .After the parade the Boosters scattered over the city and chatted with the citizens of llumboldt and vicinity. In the afternoori they were entertained by a concert hy the Humboldt Band and a speech by Hon.'B. J. Sheridan, w: o has ideas that he might possibly be elected to congress. The political speech proving uninteresting, the crowd got themselves together and left at .*{ o'clock. The band which escorted the Boosters yesterday was niade up of. the old band men of the city-and they certainly played like veterans. Many oon-pliments were given them and many compliments came from' Htim- boldt people. Most of the men wbo played yesterday have l>een out of the business for a number of years, and are willing to get back Into It If given proper encouragement. Of course now that the rink Is open where ten of them, are employed a iMtnd for commercial work is out of the question, but if the people desire it- a most excellent organization could i-bo formed next year. Many members! of the W. O. W. band would doubtless; be willing to go into a great big organization and there is some mighty gtiod traterlal in that band. It is up to the neople of Tola as. to whether they wonid like to .see a big concert band I organized here. —See the new line of Picard Pointed China at Burrell's Drug Hand Store.
