of representative from the Third Con
gressional district/ All rumors are
now at nn encl and John Horton is in
: tlie rat e to stay and, his friends say,
? to win. It is believed that he will
poll a large vote In Anderson county,
and this is the largest voting comity
in the district. Coupled with the
large .vpte lie" ?viii carry- In the other

in Helton, having io Walk' tjie distance
of four iniles twice each day. He was
determined to have an education, und
never stood hack on account of wind
or weather, but was always present
.and aiway?>led his classes. >vrgm hero
he went to the Patrick Military In
stitute in Anderson, teaching school
there the summer months tn pay his
tuition. He was g.raducted from this
institution in 189"?. He then went into
the grocery business on'a am all scale,
but soon his business bad grown to
be one of the'largest In Belton.
In/1903'he organized the Farmer's
Bank of Belton with a capital stock
of $20.000.00. He met with a great
deal of opposition in this venture, es
pecially by Hon. A. C. Latimer, but
when this gentleman saw how deter
mined Mr. Horton was to succeed .he
; withdrew his objections, and was one
of his biggest stockholders-showing
how much confidence he had in Mr.
Horton. The bank has grown to a sur
plus of $17.000.00, under his able man
agement. He did all of the work him
self for several years, but now he and
his cashier are botb taxed to keep up

for-a law abiding as wei!ins clean
town. He was always merciful where
circumstances warranted it and did
his duty as an honest man should.
Mr. I Horton - was married in June
1910 to- Miss 7mma Tate/ one of El
berton Georgia's most attractive young
ladies. Socially they are one of the
most popular couples in Belton, and

If you vote for Mr. Horton Von cari
feel safe that when a roll is called In
