on Mr. Sligh's faiendts as vell'n as matter
26. of news,- p ropounded to hin the foli
mas lowing question, and he answored it
-be vefy fully as follows:
me "Mr. Sligh, isit true' that yon have
xt defintely decided to make the race
for Judg-p of Probatef"
n ")nring last Friday and AAturday
kty I stated to friends that it was highly
110 probable that I would make the race,
3g. that I had the matter under consider
mint ation and hadt jrtty well made up my
mind to do so, and that they could,so
ro- inform all my friends. ' Since then,
,as I find, after considering the question
more thoroughly, thit such a decision
was not satisfactory to me, as it'
itli might result in doing myself and my
*t churches and the people of the coun
of ty a great injustice. Yousee I am the
lit pastor of two churches, and am ex
,l- Ipeeted to preach every Sunday and
, attend funerals, etc. I live thirteen
us miles from the county seat. I have a
.n little farm that is profitable to me
and I' have employed laborers to cul
tivate the same. I have no one to
t0- leave with my family for their pro
he teetion and no one to superintend the
S- farm, and tvith no prpspect whatever
or of getting any one to take my place
to in either cappeity. I am seventy-one
years of age, and like most people of
a my age, I am frequently not well. It
a will be expected of me, if elected, to
he be in the pfice eery day and I ought
to be at home nearly every night, and
C1 furthermore it will be expected of me
n to preach every Sunday and to at
tend to other duties connected with
be my church work. Under such circum
s'tan1ces, how could I h6pe to be able
i to do all that will be expected of me?
Will not, the strain be too great for
my strength, the load too heavy 'or
me to carry? Looking at the matter
or as above 'stated, when I think my
mind is about made up to make the
race, I find that instead of being sat
isfied, that my mind becomes more
les and more perplexed. No question of
a the kind has ever given me so much
6f concern as this one. I would like to
ed have the position, for I realize that it
ould greatly assist me in educating
my children, and also give aid in lift
he ing financial burdens from my miiind.
or I call find no satisfiactory way by
os which, I would be able to discharge
the duties connected with the posi
C tion, and at the same time, other du
lp ties just as bindinig on me. If the
t- mnatter, whelh I know is impossible,
ccould be postponed for nine monIths,
~te wh.en I could, if I so desired it, be
dlivilg, near to the county seat, I sup
at pos I would most gladly accept the
ve ~ poi ion ithl many thank-s go those
conferring its upon01 me. Loing at
the matter from every point of viewv,
it seems that a wise and foreseeing
providence has closed up thle wvay to
tJie position against me, and "I most
.eheerfully accept the same, and hero
sjby announce to myv frientls and all
oter coilcrned. thlat I will *not he'a
candidate for the pdsition. I am pro-.
Youndly thankful to thle members of
both of mhy chur ches and' to all. other
friends, for 't'heirwrnndhat
assurances oftheir support. No man
Sappreci'ates m~ore highly such tokens
ne of,kindness and friendship than I,
ofand I knowv thlat all such frie'nds will
ki givTe me credit for sincerity and hon
tr: -esty of purpose ini making' this de
-cition, aind will justify me i reach
:inlg suchl a concluson.' Maybe in the
pjrovidence of , a wise and good God,
th9se friends wvill some day have an
Eor opportunity of making life easier to
ar me in my old age. Since deciding this
et. matter definitely,\my mind Is at rest,
ny the .burden is gone."
