The County candidat es met the citizens
of PuIpkintown township on last Wednes

who exhibited consilerable interest in the
approaching primary election. NIr. V. S.

ocratic war horse of Pumiipki nIown, introdu
ced the speakers in his usual felicitous
manner, frequently geiting off good jokee
on the candidales that created roars of
laughter from the audience. Mr. Jcnes is
one of our most successful and progressive
farmers and takes an active interest. in tlie
material and educational dv elopenit o' fle

to any oflice. In opening the meting, NI r.

ini the mountains wvhcn it was first passeit
but. opposition to it has about died out and

account. It. is a good law. I endorse it.
I also believe in the liegistration law; it
was a constitutionnl requiiremient and I be
lieve the Legislature did right in passinig
it ." lie spoke oft the corrupt ion of' thle lad

money anid contrasted thle managemnent ot
