FOR COUNTY JUDGE
WILLIAM O. CHENAULT, SR.
FOR COUNTY COURT CLERK
WM. A. SAMUELS
W. B. GREENE
MR. W. B. GREENE.
Mr. V. B. Greene wants the people of Montgomery county to
know that he has an ambition to serve them in the capacity of Assessor.
For many years Mr. Greene lias been a stock buyer and by his
fair dealing and generous treatment has proven himself to be the far
mers' friend. As his business has called him to every farm in the
countv. there are few men, if any, better acquainted with the relative
value and condition of Montgomery county lands.
The oflice of Assessor, is in manv respects, the most important
county office and one of the hardest to capably fill, facts which few of
us seem to fully appreciate and all often ignore.
In addition to his wide acquaintance with people and property of
the county, Mr. Greene is a man of honesty, firmness and good judg
ment and having long been a loyal partyman, he confidently places
his claims before his fellow-Democrats and asks their favorable consideration.

late residence Thursday morning.
Rev. J. A. Hughes preached the
sermon in which he paid a high
tribute to the deceased. The re
mains were taken overland, follow
ed by sorrowing lelatives and
friends, to Harwood where the
body was interred in Evergreen
cemetery beside his wife who died
nine years ago.
Samuel S. Davis was born at
Mt. Sterling, Ky., March 8, 1835.

S. Davis, of Rich Hill.
In 1872 Mr. Davis and his fami

a farm near Walker, Vernon

1895 when he and the members of
his family who still lived under
the parental roof removed to this

ideas of good government was of
a high order. Men of his charac

in this county who will be grieved
to learn of his death.

On next Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock, the Democrats of the
various precincts of Kentucky, vill assemble at their usual voting
places and select Committeemen to serve them for the ensuing term.
It is true that the Committee will be of little importance since the
enactment of the State Primary Law, being serviceable chiefly in the
regular elections, after the nominations are made. The State Primary
Law governs every step that can be taken in the coming primary)
even to the selection of election officers, hence prospective candidates
have nothing to fear in the future from Committees or Committeemen;
nevertheless, we agree with the Sentinel-Democrat that only good men
should be chosen clean, wide-awake Democrats. We have lots of
them and they should be drafted and urged to serve for the good of

more common in cities than in ru

low vitality, take alcoholic stimu

of recurrence is 30 or higher.
