Tho announcement of Mrv Jno F.
Marshal as candidate for tho offioe of
County Olerk will olioit moro than
usual interest and a very goneral sonso

For over twenty years his fine busi
ness ability, his intogrity and genial
manners havo won him tho entiro and
unlimited respect and oonfidcuco of
tho peoplo of Waco and tho county,
and thero is no roan in tho county
whoso eleotion to the offioo ot County
Olerk would give greater satisfaction.
This is the only time Mr. Marshal has
over sought office at the hands of the

Belf and his constituency credit. He
enters tho race with a prestigo of
which any man might bo proud.
