Wk believe that a man who can

Next Tuesday is election day, and
the most important point which con
fronts our Republican workers, is to
sec that every voter gets to the polls
Morgan is a Republican county, and
it only remains to get the vote out to
secure a sweeping victory when the
polls arc closed Tuesday night. All
the candidates on the Republican
ticket arc first-class, clean men, and
there is no plausible reason why the
party should lose a man on the entire
ticket, and if proper efforts arc put
forth, success will be sure. This has
not been a lively campaign, but the
omen shows that Republican forces
are satisfied and will perform their
duty to their party by voting right,
which will do more good than all the
hilarity that can be hustled into a
dozen off-year campaigns.
The fact that there were seventy
teachers in attendance at the Morgan
County Teachers' Association held
here last week, is conclusive evidence
that our teachers arc taking deeper
interest than ever in educational af
fairs and are making greater efforts to
perfect themselves for their profession.
We like to sec this interest manifested
by our teachers, as the standard of
education cannot be raised too high,
while indolence is likely to lower
the standard. It is sure to operate
one way or the other, and we feel
that Morgan County is improving in
