Messrs. Editors: I feel it my duty, in
justice to myself, to the delegation from
Buiuio township and to Mr. Arthur, to cor
rect a report tkat is in circulation respect
ing the nomination of that gentleman for
Assessor, by the democratic county eon
vention at Bowling jreen, that his circum
stances were exagerated or falsely stated
(bit lie had, among other calamities, a famj
ly of 'eleven children; the report in un
founded, not having been so stated by my
self or aay one of the delegation in my
hearing. Hut we urged the claims of Mr.
Arthur we do not deny, because we believ
ed he would fill the office with satisfaction
to the people, but not from any disregard
'for another, for there are no men that I es
teem more highly than those other aspirants
wtth whom I am acquainted. But believ
iag that such offices should be given to the
more unfortunate, when they are capable
of discharging the duties of them, and be
lieving that no candidate could be success
ful unless he was equally or more unfortu
nate than the opposing candidate. In the
person of Mr. Arthur we believed we had
found that man, hence we urged his claims
without prevarication or exage ration, which
can be attested by many who were present
and personally acquainted with Mr. Arthur

she used a few packages of Storm's Cough Can

The action of Dr. Storm's Scotch Cotign Can

purge, it keeps the stomach and bowels m a

We have no disposition to injure the Inventor
of any particular medicine, but in justice to the
world, we will give it as our honest opinion,
formed by the observations of eleven years in
the school of medicine, that large end frtqmtni
draughts of nauseous liquid' Compounds taktd
into the stomach from time io time 1 mutt have
tendency to destroy the healthy tone of that tiial
ergm of the human system.
No such objection can be urged against the use
of this valuable Medicated Candy, for Sugar tse
greeable both to the palate and stomach, and we
honestly believe that this preparation will do au
that medicine can do towards the relief of per
sons suffering with Colds, Coughs, Bronchitis,
