Election Returns Tonight-Co.
The Herald and News wants its co

the county to help it in handling the
primary returns tonight, as they have
telped The Herald and News and its
predecessors for the past 50 years and
The Herald and News will have its

rhe office up-stairs will handle the

lrom throughout the county and bulle- I
tins covering the State, just as soon
is they can be secured.
If the managers will send us the

The aim of The Herald and News is
