Edwin P. Morrow, Repunblican,

jority ostimated by the Courier--Journal
at about 15,000. Morrow enr
rried Jefferson county by 11,500 and
ailso tarried Campbell and Kenton
j -counties by largo'majorities. The en
tiro Republican Stato ticket appears
to bo elected and overything points
to ,a Republican landslide. .The 'dry
-amendment carried in the State by
. largo majority. The vote in. all the
larger cities of the State seemed to
favor Morrow arid his election was'
conceded early tin the night by "Dem
ocratib leaders. At the timp of our
going to press many counties ba'd not
"been heard from, but enough had re
ported to indicate tho election of the
. ntiro Republican ticket by a large
majority. Tho Republicans appear to
Imve polled jtheir full strength in ad
dition to tho Independent vote and
wany Democratic votes. '
Tho election in Montgomery aounty
passed off quietly today and much
interest was' manifested by leaders
in both parties and a good vote was
polled. Montgomery county gave
' Governor Black a majority of 297, an
increnso of 45 'yotcs over what it
"gave Stanley four yearsago. Uther
. candidates for Stato offices ran
about tho same as tho head of tho
ticket;

A WORTHY PROFESSIONAL
The' last half of October, Swine
broad, the real estate man, of Lan
caster, was kept busy holding auc
tion sales. On October 15th, he sold
for Mrs. George Backer, Mrs. Lynn
Buster nnd Mrs. William Geary, 8G5
acres of land Jn Wayne county, ad
joining tho town of Monticello, to va
rious parties in building lots and
farms for an aggregate sum of $94,
504.83. On tho 18th he sold for Milo
Simpson a tract of 70 acres of unim
proved land in Garrard county at an
average of $214.00 per acre. On the
twenty-first he sold for R. W. Gwinn
his farm of 335 acres in Mercer
county to different parties nt an
average-price of $280.00 per acre; a
portion of the farm with tho im
provements, about 243 acres, aver
aged $301.00 er acre. On the 22nd he
held another .sale in Garrard county
and sold 140 acres for 'N. J'. Gosney,
nt $275.00 per acre. Again on the
24th ho sold at auction for J. L: But
ler his farm of 190 acres in Lincoln
county at $150.00 per acre. On the
28th he sold for Allen Edelen .170
acres of land in Mercer county, in
two tracts of 85 acres each, at an
average price of $102.50 per acre.
A'mT on November 1st, for H. V. Bes
tin a brick residence and about four
ncrcs of- land just nt the edgo o the
city limits of Lancaster, in Garrard
county, for $11,750.00, and on the
same day two building lots for Roy
Schooler at $1,700.00 each. Total
.sales amounted to $312,482.00. AH
of these sales were very successful
and again demonstrated the fact that
when it comes to selling land Swine
broad is nt tho very top. His expe
rience in. making subdivisions and
how 6 sell farms nnd his judgment
'of the value of land make his serv
ices much sought after and ho is one
of tho few real estato men wno have
realized that the real estato business
is a profession and must bo conduct
ed so as to secure and hold the confi
dence of thoso with whom hp deals.
Swinebrond also believes in printer's
ink and wo judge that ho spend as
much in advertising as any other real
estato man in tho business and is
theroby able to give his clients tho
best of sen-ice.
Another point which should not es
cape thoso interested; ho 5s thur-
oughly reliable and accurate in
nll
his descriptive advertising and as
