Beware of the Campaign Liar
(This is from our esteemed con
temporary, The Edgefield Chronicle,
of last week.)
The campaign liar and the 11th
hour character assassin is abroad in
the land. Let not his nefarious and
dirty misrepresentations alter you?
good opinions of the candidates. Do
not permit yourself to be influenced
by what you hear whispered around
or talked out boldly. If you want to
investigate for your own satisfac

now and August 27. Act on your
own initiative in the matter, but do
not be led around by the nose just
because some fellow has noised about
evil reports against a man who asks
for your support at the ballot box.
It is a reflection on your manhood
to be directed as to how you should
vote. Be guided solely by your hon
est convictions and you will make
