For Railroad Commissioner,
[From Fair Cold Newa aod Herald, May 9, i?oi )
Edltor Newa and Herald t
The office of Railroad Commissioner is
one of great responsibility and it is high
ly important that it ba filled with the
right man. A Railroad Commissioner
should be possessed of a broad and libe
ral mind, trained in business grooves,
whetted and ehrrpened by friction with
every-day business transactions. He
should bo a man of sufficient moral cour
age to enforce his views tn the interest of
publio safety as well as public welfare,
and at the same time not ignore the just
interests of railroad corporations. He
should have had a measure of success In
the conduct of hie own business before
entering on the heavy duties connected
with thio office. A man who meeta all
these requirements la Hon. John G.
Wo Hin sr. whom candidacy for Railroad
S>mmf??loner we most heartily endorse,
r. W?lling is now in the prime of life.
He is one of the County's largest and
most successful Carmen. He Is a public
spirited man, as la shown by bis great
Interest in the school of his community,
the session of whioh has often been ex
tended by his contributions. He la de
servedly popular tn his own community,
having received 149 out of the 160
oast st his borne box in 1000. He Is also
very popular in the County, having
twice heeded the ticket for the Houae of
Repreo -itatlves. Then, too, Mr. W?ll
ing bat. had aeven years experience In
practical railroading, having been a ma
chinist by trade, serving in the capacity
of a locomotive engineer.
In aakl: ? you to anpport him we feel
sure that wherever he may be he will be
found to be a man of the highest type of
Chriatian character, whose reputation ia
unsullied, whose ability ia unquestioned;
and whose peculiar fitness for the office
be seeks is recognised by many, many
citizens of Falrfleld county.

THIS IS CLAIMING "
A GBEAf DEAL,

you cart make of the softness of this water, that it does not have
the sharp, burning sensation on the tongue or stomach when

The.WHITk STONE MTHIA ALE will retain some of
