HON. I. L. PATTERSON FOR SENATOR.
Polk county is offering to the people of this dis
trict a strong candidate for state senator in Hon.
I. L. Patterson of Kola.
Mr. Patterson was born in Kings Valley, Ben
ton county, a little over fifty years ago and conse
quently he has a deep interest in Benton county
as well as Polk.
The editor of the Monitor has had a long ac
quaintance with Mr. Patterson and that acquain
tance is such that we speak advisedly when we say
Benton and Polk counties can make no mistake
in nominating him as their candidate for the lm-
portant office of sena or. lie lias had experience
as a legislator and was the senator from Marion
county at one time for a term of four years and
was an active, energetic and successful official
while boldintr that position. Later he was appoint
ed collector of customs, which position he held
throutrh a part of two presidential terms.
In later years Mr. Patterson has returned to the
farm and is now managing and opeiating tne ex
tensive Gilbert and Patterson properties at Kola.
He knows the needs of Benton and Polk coun
ties and has the ability and standingover the state
r iinmnlKh c.nn1 rosnlts for the People of tll'S
section. An untried man for the position of sen
?ir ..otitmr in thi wnrk that a man can who has
had experience, and no man in Polk county could
and would accomplish as much as Mr. Patterson,
so the Monitor unqualifiedly makes the announce
ment that it wishes to see the people unite to elect
I. L. Patterson as the next senator from Benton
and Polk counties.
SUMMER SUNSHINE MAKES US GLAD.
TIT 1 I 1 t.
we an like tne sunshine. It invigorates and makes us
feelgood. The dark, cloudy days are often gloomy days,
but sunshine dispells the shadows and gloom and gives the
world a roseate hue that makes us feel like working and
singing, 'lis the same with the "disposition." If you
rauiate sun3Dine, dispsl darkness and gloom, you make
your tellovv man feel happier and better. If your town
has a gloomy "bunch" you get the gloomy spirit and you
say this town is no good; it is no place to live in: things
are dead; but if you look for the silver lining beyond the 1
cloud you are inspired with hope and faith and conseqent-
ly tne town iooks good to you, you. see things in it that
are progressive and you become a booster and not a knock
er, lie a booster, believe in sunshine..
