Mouth-Piece of Masses
' Democracy is still immortal. The
Democratic party was not born to ■
die. For more than a hundred years
this great party has been the mouth
piece of the masses, the champion j
of those whose voice in government:
would go unheard but for its ad- j
vocaey of men and measures; It:
has been national in sentiment and
universal in service. It has neither !
fawned before wealth nor patroniz- j
cd poverty. It recognizes no clais or
croup, it offers no special grant.-,
or benefits, it seeks no support from
i hose who demand governmental i
favors in return for financial as-'
ststance. Its whole purpose is to
bring the benefits of government to
all tire people in accordance with
i heir needs and to distribute the
burdens of government among ail ;
the people in proportion to their j
ability to bear them.

Sand Bags Help To
Supply City Water
Sand bags were resorted to back
during the summer on two different
occasions to prevent the city's water
supply from running short. The
river was low because of the long
drought and the stream was so
small, there was not sufficient wat
er to reach the intake pipes at the
pump station. Sand bags were
placed in the stream to divert the
water to the intake pipes. Recent
rains, however, have added consid
erably to the water supply.
