let the people of the county read that

If that section does not absolutely
leave the distribution of the publica

not know how to read plain English.

Our statement of last week with ref
erence to the two sections of law cov
ering the letting of the publication of
the official ballot in two papers was
questioned by the gentlemanly (!)
editor ot the Gossom paper, and, that
our friends may know definitely the
truth of our assertions we give tho two
The Argus says: "Tho gen
tlemanly editor." No doubt that
is a misnomer with the Argus
for straight democracy, true
blue and dependable. He again
says: "The Gossom paper." No
doubt that is another misnomer
intended to compliment the Her
ald for its democracy, for Judge
Gossom was the democratic can

to defeat. So much for that.

of the democratic party for

The Argus says if the above
is not right, "then we do not
know how to read plain English."
Of course a man so biased and
prejudiced as the Argus is .not
supposed to read with an under
standing. "The editor of this paper is
not an attorney at lav;," says the
Argus. Then if lie is not, why
does he try to construe the law.
Now, as to the Argus' contract
with the county, that is not worth
the paper it is written upon.
There is no law authorizing such
contracts except in cities having
100,000 or more population, and
in granting a contract to the Ar
gus to do all such advertising
the county court exceeded its

Mrs. Jane Callehan suffered from womanly trouble for'
nearly ten years. In a letter from Whitevillc, N. C, she
says: "I was not able to do my own housework. My
stomach was weak, and my blood was wrong. I had back
ache, and was very weak.. I tried several doctors, but they
did me no good. I used Cardui for 3 or 4 mouths, and now
1 am in the best health I have ever been. I can never praise
Cardui enough." It is the best tonic, for women.
Whether seriously sick, or simply weak, try Cardui.
