Enrollment Books Delayed.

rolling the voters for the primary
election, so as to distribute them
among the clubs of the county in
time for opening the books next Tues
day. He replied that there has been
[ some delay in getting the books from
the printer, but that they will be
sent to me at Edgefield as early as
possible and I will mail them to the
clubs immediately on receiving them
from Columbia. This wiir explain the
delay, should any occur.
