CARDS OF THANKS
To the Voters of Edgefield :
You have again, by your votes,
expressed your desire to have me
represent you in the legislature.
And to undertake to express my
gratitude would be useless. It is
said that ''from the abundance of
the heart the mouth speaketh,"
but with me "from the abundance
of the heart the mouth faileth to
speak,'' for I cannot command
language half sufficient to convey
my appreciation. You may rest
assured that I will give you my
best services, and my prayer will
bo, after my return from legisla
tive duties, to be accosted on all
sides with, "Well done thou good
and faithful servant."
W. A. STROM.
To the Public:
I desire through your columns
to thank the people of Edgefield
county for ?ieir generous and lib
eral support of me for the office of
County Supervisor in the primary
just ended. This support is all
the more appreciated because in
the spring and early summer I was
too busy in my little farm to can
vass the count}'as I should; and
for the past few weeks I have been
sick and unable to leave my house,
and of course unable to attend the
last four campaign meeting*.
Again thanking you for yeur kind
efforts in my behalf, I am
J. M. BELL, JR.
Mr. Editor: Please allow me
space to thank the gold people of
Edgefield county for their very
liberal support of me in the cam
paign just ended. I wish to" say
that I made the race on my own
merits and said nothing unkind of
any candidate, but this is more
than I can say for sume of them.
X'moBt emphatically thank the
Hampton club for so lib?rai a sup
port, a club that I always stood by
and supported, often against men
who have proved to be better
0. 0. BURNETT.
Mr. Editor: Please perm?tame
through your valuable columns to
return my most sincere thanks Lo
the people of Edgefield county for
I he generous and loyal support
they gave me in my candidacy for
the office of Treasurer in the pri
mary elec?ou; and to express to
my worthy opponents my high ap
preciation of the uniform kindness "
and courtesy which they manifest
ed towards me throughout the en- '
Gratitude upon the one band,
and.constantly faithful service to
the other, are the returns which a
public servant can make to the
people for the bestowal of a trust;
of the first of these, I have now a
heart full ; and as to the second,
I hereby give ray pledge by every
consideration that can be binding
upon my conscience. If I shall be
elected, it will be my constant en
deavor to become worthy of the
great confidence which my fellow
citizens have expressed in me.
Mr. Editor: I am sincerely
grateful to the people of Edgefield
County for the very flattering vote
which they gave me in the first
primary for the office of Dispenser;
and I shall so discharge its douties
as to prove my worthiness of the
confidence which was thus mani
fested in me.
I wish also to exprese my ap
preciation of the respectful trea
ment which I received from my
opponents from the beginning to
to the (md of the canvass. We
met as friends; and we parted
as friends; and I trust that those
of my competitors who were not
so fortunate as to get into the
second primary, will find it
agreeable to stand by me now.
I take this means of thanking
my friends, for their kindness in
helping rae in the'race for clerk of
court. I have been painfully
aiflic':ed with my back and am
now under the treatment of Dre.
Tompkins and Marsh. For this
reason I am not able to make an
active canvass but hope that my
friends will take care of me in my
J. B. HILL.
To the Peophof Edgsfield county :
The first primary election has
been held, I take this method of
thanking the good people of Edge
field for their many kindnesses
shown me during the canvass and
for their generous support. I made
a cleau, fair race anti beat my op
ponents. The second primary elec
tion is now on and; I appeal to the
people of Edgefield couuty to
stand by me. Soine of my oppo
nents are circulating throughout
the county tfy?t I scratched the
names of Senator Tillman and
Congressman Talbert off of my
ticket at tbe last primary election,
and they are also circulating that I
voted for Haskell in 1890. I de
riounce these reports as infamously
false aud as having been gotten up
solely to injure me. If I am be
aten fairly at the primary, I will
do ae I have always done, support
the nominees of the party. But I
do not want to be beaten unfairly.
