To Lydia E. Pinkham Medicine

In answer we Bay that never have we
published a fictitious letter or name.
Never, knowingly, have we published
an untruthful letter, or one without the

! who wrote it.
The reason that thousands of women

j grateful letters to the Lydia E. Pink|

; the worst forms of female ills, from disi
placements, inflammation, Ulceration,
irregularities, nervousness, weakness,

you were entitled to know about it not

You have asked me to explain to you

use of in 1915.
It is a fact that commutation tax was

August 2, 1916.
Mr. Voter, you see from the above
letter from Mr. Holloway that Mr. H.
'M'. Boozer had full information as to
the deficiency of the funds for 1915,
and to "be fair to me I think Mr.
Boozer should have given this information
with the figures he has "been
giving out. I can not get around to j
all of -the voters "before the election, is
why I am sending this out through

of a hurtful nature in regard j
to the expenditure of the furds of j

j favor if you will call to see IMr. Hollojway
and ask him to show you the
j records. He will take pleasure in
showing them to you and you will find i
i that the rumor that was in circula- j
tion is untrue.
I presume from the criticism of my |
opponent in regard to the expendi- j
tures of the funds of Newberry county,
if he should succeed me the roads
and bridges will be neglected, as, Mr. :
. Voter, you know roads can't be work
