Don't Fail to Register.
Voters are again urged to register.
The books will be open until the 12ih,
the day before the primary election, so
as to give every one a chance to register.
It is the busy season, we know, but good
government depends on the citizenship
taking an interest in the affairs of gov
ernment. It takes but a few minutes to
register as well as to vote, which every
citizen can give if he wills that way. Of
candidates and policies of government
ponder them over seriously and conscien
tiously while you work and when you
rest, giving them your best thought.
Remember that the ballot is a privilege
—a sacred privilege—one that should be
cherished and exercised as a religiouß
duty. No citizen should be careless in
this matter. Again we say, don't fail to
register and by all means go to the polls
