ii two davs' event consisting of
matinee races shall be pulled off
October 12 and 13 in this city.
The meeting Saturday was- a
most enthusiastic one, and it is
the purpose of the autoists com-
posing this association to give
fetter entertainment than has
.ever been shown outside of the
northern and eastern circuits.
The tracks are in infinitely better
shape than they were at the
time of the first annual show and
races. They have been improved-
ay to grade atfd surface, and it is
-assured that every patron will
get more than his money's worth.
Following is an outline of the
program for the two davs' rac-

Three entries are required for

All purses will be divided on a

It is the unanimous opinion of
officers and members of the as1
sociation that the races will not
only be high class, but also that
they will be interesting from the
standpoint of entries. Already
a number of cars have been* en-
tered, and others will follow
brains as a gnat, could oppose
a bond issue. When it comee to
roads, this one thing that all
share in alike-it's good for all-
it's good for the wayfarer, and
is many times good for the far-
mers. Ask yourself how you
can afford to vote against it, and
if you do, remember that you
may be branded as a sore on
society by all our sister counties,

Why the Poor Are Poor
Now that's a great heading
and 1 have a doubt as to what I
am going to say but, in the be-
ginning I will say that the poor
are poor because the darn fools
don't save somethidg out of ev-
ery little bit they get. When
the man with a limited bank ac-
count tries to go the gaits and his
wife leads the way they will soon
be bankrupt. When the woman
goes to the store because she has
an open account and goes in
debt for three times as much as
she should, she is not fit for a
wife and should be limited.
These things are the why's some
people are so darn poor. Pover-
ty is no crime, but damn incon-
venient. Did you ever try it.
