It U a great man we have elected for President of this great country. In body, mind and iteart, in natural talent and. in acquired accomplishments in experience and in achievement, very great man. Mr. Taft is not as versatile a man as Prosldent Roosevelt. He Is not a linguist, nor a sportsman, nor-a naturalist. He is not as aggressive and pugnacious. His Intellectual pi-occsses arc not so Ughtnrng-llkp in their rapid- It) . He is not so impulsive nor ?Jven to expressing himself on every possible subject of human inlurcst with so much \-lvaclty and positivcness. He is as different in all those particulars from Roosevelt as one maj) could we! be from another. Btit be is OA honest as Roosevelt He IK as Kiucori>. He Is as brave, morally and physically. He Is as Indepen denL He is just- as far above the reach of any slnistvr Inttui'ncc. He Is just as determined that this government Khali bo carried forward in the interest of all ti^c people. In a word in an the qualities for which we most admire tiic President. Taft is Just as dependable as Roosevelt. And in many othor respects he pos- sesscti qualities and capacities much superior to those possessed by Roosevelt. IKc- Is a great lawyer which the Prt^sident of the United States ougbt to be. but which Roose\'clt Is not. He is a trained diplomat. He is a shrewd business' man. lie is patient and good humored and "gets alqpg" witb the people. In ail these acquir^ meats and qualities he has greatly ihfe advantage of Roosevelt. And nobody recognizes this fact more clearly, nor admits it more generously than the President bimselL He has repeatedly caid that Mr. Taft Is far better qnallfled to handle the problems that arc to be solved now than he is. Roosevelt's strengtln has hiin in bis ability ja an :,acitator, in his intenaa I hare done as much as be ^as done these past seven years to quicken tbo I moral conaclousncss of the people, to I 29; 6: The first complete returns to come in from the county were from the Seconfl ward in Gas City, a Democratic* stronghokl.

But that work U done now. The next step is to crj'stalize this sentiment Into sane, workable legislation. .\nd In doing that Mr. Taft's training as a, lawyer and a Judge, his skill in dealing with men. and bis shrewd business sense ^quip him to secure results which RoosevoU fully realizes he could nover reacb. Nobody could have serv <'d the need of his hourv better than Roosevelt has done. But his hour is past, and to meet the new need that has arisen It is impossible to conceive of any man better fitted than William Howard Taft. if is a Prince injleed. that has arisen in Israel, and the country is fortunate and happy In possessing him and in having called him just at the right moment to the place of power and responsibility and opportunity. ; TO OPEN ON NOV. 14 Manager of the Kress A Company Store is in Town Today.
