This be!t:sr r.h?? last n:vtt.:ig before

that all members he pre>*m. as mas

X?? tli?- Voters of Franklin c ounty.
Colonel Theodora Rosevelt. then a
candidate for Governor of the State
of New York, ju>t at the close of the
Spanish-American War. said.
"Remember that whether you will or
not. your votes this year will he viewV
t d by the nations of Europe from one
standpoint only: A refusal to sustain
the President this year will, in their
eyes, be read, as a refusal to sustain
the war and to sustain the efforts 01
our Peace Commission to secure ttw?
fruits of war. It will give hear: to '
our defeated antagoists."
It is more important now than in ,
lSi?S that our President be sustained
because, while seemingly assured, th* '
victory over Germany and Prussian
ism is not yet won. and to weaken the
moral force of our President by voting
against his party, will correspondingly
weaken his influence as "Ths First
Citizen of the World."
American politics today are world
politics as never before in history and
a vote for ihe Party of the President
th's year means a vote,of Coniidence
for Wood row Wilson, ,the~ leader of
that party. This is one year when men
of all parties and creeds can "vote the
Democratic Ticket without breaking
faith with their party principles. It
is also a time when to stay at home
and refuse to vote will be a repudiation
of the policies many of our finest boys
ffluffllut'r ^"""" llir
On account of the general Situation
and especially the prevalence of In
fluenza. there will be no Campaign of
public gatherings this year, however
every man ip Franklin County- who?
can vote should go to the polls on No
vember 5th and cast his Vote of Con
fidence for the Party behind The Pres
that ycu and every other man
.vntifVd o Wo in duly regist'icd nnd
?rat on November 5th your vot* and bis
\s duly d?,>ov)ted in the ballot box.
The time will be turned back one
hour on October 28th?Monday.

R. Earle requests us to state in their
behalf that they voted against allow
ing tne straight five per cen,
commissions for ex-Sheriff, W. H.. Al

America must literally feed the
world during the war and at the same
time prepare to rebuild the world's
food supplies when victory brings
America and the Allies have pooled
food resources, and it is now up to
every American to put more In the
pool and take less out?no spillways
' If peace comes quickly the food de
