"GERMANY short of food." This has
been a standing head of many papers
for many moons, yet the Teutons keep
right on fighting-and winning.
OF course Colonel Aftermath reads
all the papers; but we just wonder if he
has overlooked what has happened to
his stage sweetheart, Billie Burke?

Well, then, why do the liquor people

A MAiN named Lamar has been con
vieted of impersonating a congressman
with intbnbto defraud Wall street finan
ciers and sent to prison for two years.
Any rhan -that would try to impersonate
some of our congressmen should be kept
in jail perpetually. On the other hand,
he should have been given a medal had
he succeeded in getting, ahead of that
Wall street gang; but he, di4n't, and
that'swhy he has to sex'vehis time.
Would Have Only One Primary
Over and over every two years we
have this double primary election. I
wish it could be changed to allow all
officers to hold office four years so as
to keep down the excitement, trouble
and expense. Under the present law
we have two primary elections, which
means two days lost out of every two
years. Allow me to suggest a change
that I think would be better by doing
all we-now do in two primaries in one
In casting your ballot for your first
chdice mark both your figst choice and
your second choice. If two or more are
tqbe elected,- as commissioners or leg
islators, mark two first choice and twc
secofid.hic. ., For-)itnstance'.if-.four.'are
running for one office, A, B, C and D,
and you prefer A as first choice and E
for second choice, so mark them oppo.
site their names. When two or more
are to be elected as stated above and
you prefer A and B, mark A first choice,
B first choice and C second choice, I
second choice. Then when the first
choice votes are counted, if no one re.
ceives a majority, the two receiving the
highest number of votes are to continue
as at present. If two are to be elected
there will be four in the race, but all
others are dropped out or eliminated aE
now, but the second choice on all ballot
will be counted and the ones receiving
the highest will be the nominee.
Voting your second choice cannot hurl
-your first - choice. If your first choice
comes out one of the high men youm
second choice is not counted, and if he
does not come out high man he is dowr
and' out .anyway. If your first choice
proves a low man, then your seconi
choice may name a winner.
The present law will govern the com
ing primary, but if the people woulk
favor such a change as this it can b
put in force before the next primary.

Another Car of the Old Reliable Mitchell Wagons
and a Car of Chase City Buggies.
These vehicles need no introduction to the people of Pickens County, as tb
hundreds of them being used every day..
+ There are wagons you can buy for less money than you will pay for the 1'
4 but we can say without fear of contradiction that nowhere in the United States will
you buy a wagon that will run lighter or wear longer than the^Mitchell.
DNTCONSIDER THE PRICE SO MUCH IN BUYING A WAGON, BUT BUY
DON'T ONE THAT YOU ARE NOT AFRAID TO LOADI
If you are umdecided as to which wagon to buy, just ask the man who owns a
Mitchell, or ask your blacksmith; they will both tell you that repair bills are almost
unknown to the Mitchell Wagon. -
A full line of Chase City Buggies, any color, in both steel and rubber tires. All we
ask is for you to look at the make-up and finish of a Chase City Buggy, and when you
buy one you will be surprised at how light it runs and how long it will last.
Just give one of these well-known vehicles a trial and vou will be convinced that
you will get more for your money than any other wagon or buggy you could buy.
