    Read Your Ballot.

    We must for the last time warn all republican voters to look to it that they have the real republican ticket. Depend upon it, there will be scores of spurious and “split” tickets, with all sorts of devices for entrapping the unwary. There must be twenty-five names or so on the ballot and therefore the chance for deception will be very great. The only way to be entirely secure is to take no ballot except from one whom you know to be a regular republican distributor, and then read your ballot before you deposit it in the box. Especially see to it that the electors are right, with residences correct, the Governor right and that the republican candidate for Congress is on your ticket, especially the latter. It is there that the attempt at deception will be greatest, and there that caution will be most necessary.
