1HE WORLDS GREATEST SEWIK8 MACHINE
LOOKINU FORWARD TO 1II12!
Speculation as to Line"Up of Part
ies Four Years Hence.
Tfce question of 1912 threatens
the Republican party as positively
as it threatens tha organization latt?-
ly diifeiJted under Bryan. If the
Democrats must build up their vot
ing strength the Republicans must
avoid blunders. The ancient con
troversy over the tariff obtrudes it
self before the electors meet t«
choose a new President. On botn
sides the leaders are timid about the
tariff, but the pressure of forces
compels a struggle on that ground,
as similar forces compelled parties
to light the slavery battle to a con
clusion in spite of the dodging and
compromi.ses of the leaders.
In dealing with the tariff, whiclb
may become the great issue of 1912,
both parties must take into consid
eration tJie experience of the past
twenty years. However close to
their convi''tions Is the doctrine of
free trade, the Democrats will con
sult cautiously the business object;-
iens to rash disturbance of long-set-
tled adjustments. The Republicans
will endeavor to show that they are
capable of treating the tariff indep
endently of the favor of trusts and
concentrated interests. Of ti)C two
tasks that of the Republicans is the
more difficult. If ttiey do iiot hon
estly readjust the tariff, the Deaio-
crats will have a favorable opening;
if they do, they run a risk of bu.-?i-
ness trouble. On the other hand,
the Democrats under Bryan have
fallen into an immense disadvantage
ot incapable statesmanship, even of
incapable political leadership. If
the Republicans fall into blunders,
the Democrats may not have leader
ship to reap the full advantage. If
they get tlie full advantage of Re-
piihlican tariff blunders, they may :
make niislakes about the currency,!
tlu‘ banking laws, or our outlying!
po.s.sessions—tiiree subjects on wnich 1
thf'y seem to have only childish im-l
Kansas City Star.
In voting down the proposal to
ignore iiijunctii)ns, the American
Federation of I.i:ibor showed good,
bard sense. The cour.'^e urged l)y
the committe—to crowd tite jails
with Morkmen who iiad disoebyed
court orders—would have invited
confusion and ruin.
In nation with free discussion
and an unrestricted ballot there can
l)e no possible excuse for a refuse!
to obey the law of the land. If the
law is bad, if there are abuses, the
remedy lies in electing men who
will write the desired changes in
the statutes. For every disaffected
group to take the law into its own
hands would mean anarchy and
would evoke an overwh#*iming pub
lic sentiment against the men engag-
in the movement.
This, of course, was recognized by
the Federation delegates and the
anarchistic pku was defeated bj an
overw^helming majority. Their act-
tion will be afiplauded by all friends
of organized labor.

BUSINESS WITH ONLY ONE DOLUR.
She is now independent and cares not how bad
times are. Can be done by others.
A woman in North Carolina started in business with only 1 dollar
and now has an income of more than 200 dollars a week.
O'ce day she saw an advertisement in a monthly story paper of
‘'WICKE'S SWISS HERB TEA” stating that it was the BEST RKM-
IjDY on the market for all Kidney, Liver and Stomach Troub
les and while she had been troubled with all these complaints for more
than 7 years, she wrote to the Manufacturer for a 22 cent package, which
she used careful accroding to the directions. After one week.s use she
found that all her complaints had left her and she told the people, who
had known her as a very sick lady, what she had used. All who saw
the wonderfull change in her condition, asked her to get them a package,
and she sent one dollar to the Manufacturer of the Tea and asked him to
send her as many packages as he could afford for the one dollar.
She got 8 packages which she sold at 25 cents each, which gave lier
a profit of one dollar on her investment, and 25 sample packages, wiiich
she distributed to other people and asked them to try this s.onderful
A week later she went to all these people again and asked them if
they had tried the Tea and what they thought of it, and to li«' surprise
she got an order for a package from every one of these, they all said “the
Tea is wonderful.” She at once sent for 100 packages and kept on dis
tributing samples and sold them all in a weeks time, and then she sent
for 500 packages and now she has 50 other ladies and men working for
her, selling “Wicke’s Swiss Herb Tea” from house to house, and North
Carolina has never been in so healthy condition ais she is now; the call
for a Doctor is only in rare cases or accident. A Druggist offered her
the other day $10,000 for her Agency, but she declined his offer.
Anyone, who has a little push and energy can do as well as she and
