I admire President Roosevelt. 1 Believe he means well and i3 doing what he can for us. His advisers are also doing things for it takes plenty of ability to collect $5.00 in cotton taxes, processing tax, hog tax, and other taxes and then by handing back $4.00 of it get every mother's son to vote for them. I can see no glory In Herring's big vote. Herring and his gang slid in on the good graces of the New Deal and as a compliment to President Roosevelt. His sales tax never elected him. Th? sales tax is simply asking the poor man to walk but incldently help to pay the license on some rich man's car. I suppose the next tax will be that all married men will have to report and pay a tax on what they were doing if they stay out later than 10 o'clock. Some voted for him because they were afraid the other fellows would meddle with the corn money which was a real blessing this year; others because they were aJraid the other party would meddle with the liquor question: others to hold their Jobs. All and all, Herring and Kraschel had easy going. Everything in their favor. The republican party is not dead, they are just sleeping. When they learn to let prohibition candidates run on the prohibition ticket and nominate regular republicans on their own ticket and when the democrats quit playing Santa Claus there will be plenty people voting the republican ticket.

From Spirits of Camphor To Fountain Pens Y OUR n^xlcm druggist supplies tho public wants. The modern drug store is the new era of compact department .stores. And make no mistake about the drug ends of such stores, either. Where there are bargain counters of bathing caps, fountain pens and popular fiction, there is the prescription desk, where bar- jrains never enter. The modern druggist offers a wide range of merchandise for the household, but he keeps his medicinal departments free of any price-basis, save on the popular so-called ''patent medicines." In THIS NKWSPAPKK appear from time to time the advertisements of modern drug stores, featuring their wares of general appeal, and emphasizing the serious, academic- attention to prescription and drug needs. This Space Donated in the interest of local druggists by The Algona Upper Des Moines "The Pioneer Newspaper With The Growing Circulation"
