Wodnosday afternoon by Judgo Wood

two years. Mr. JCoslor is employed In

In presenting my naino to tho poo
pie of Lincoln Coutny for election to
iho offico of County Coinminionet it Is
my desire to present to the voters my
attitude on the important questions
i hot will be presented to the newly
ioctod board.
Among theso probably tho most Im
portant will be tho construction of the
new Court Houso. Tho County has
already voted to lovy llvo mills per
year for five yoars beginning in 1919,
and ending In 1924, for tho construc
tion of this building. This building
should be planned and constructed
with tho idea In mind that It should
servo tho pooplo for a long term of
yoars and that It should provide for
tho coming growth of our county. It
should provjdo not only for adequato
and sufficient office rooms but also
for rest rooms for farmers and out-of-town
tax payers and tholr families
whon nt tho County Seat It should
have an Auditorium for tho meetings
of Farmers, Business mon, tho Amer
ican Legion and similar organizations.
And this work should bo as economic
ally done as It is ,pos8iblo to do It and
seeuro all tho desired objects.
Another of tho principal questions
Is the proper construction and main
tenance of hard dirt roads. The Lin
coln Highway is now maintained by
tylio state and It Is my desiro that as
soon as posslblp wo should secure
North and South routes through tho
county under tho Bamc system. Tlfere
should he a comprehensive system of
highways to each town In the county,
built so ns to furlnsh the farmers
with tho best posslblo road conditions
to their nearest trading point It is
my belief that all culverts and Im
provements on roads should bo of a
permanont nature.
Districts Number Two and Threo
are each at this tlmo receiving only
onj third of the County Road Fund
and thoy contain over 90 of tho
roads. It Js my opinion that District
Number Ono should bo extended so
as to Include all tho roads which aro
directly tributary to North Platto, or
that tho funds of District Number Ono
should bo used to maintain these
roads as far as may be right and
Tho finances of this County should
lit) handled tho same as tho finances
of any pthor largo business organiza
tion and should bo fairly and honestly
handled. I stand for all of theso
prlclplcs and respectfully solicit your
voto at tho November election for
County Commlslsonr District Number
Two of the threo County Commis
sioners are to rotire the first of the
year and now men will tako their
places. Tho opinion of those mon Is
that they should leave the building of
! the now Court House to tholr succes
sors They base tholr belief on the
fd that building material and lifbor
will b choapor next year. Thon they
think It would be better to collect a
good part of the tax with which to pay
for the Court .Houso "before contracts
aro lot rather than havo tho contrac
tor set a prlco on tho building In the
oxpoclatlon of having to wait for his
money. Both of those aro good reasons
whloh will havo to balance tho Jncon
vonlenco of usIuk tho present building
an extra year.
A meeting of the local council of

Of course, you want a Fordson
THE Fordson is an ideal
tractor for your farm. It is
built compactly, simply, yet
with abundant power. It pulls a
two bottom plow and will do a
proportionate amount of any other
farm power work.
The Fordson engine is unusual.
It is simple, easily cared for, and
bo designed that the farmer can
give any attention required in ser
vice. The entire head of the cylin
ders, which are cast enbloc, can be
removed for grinding valves.
The air is cleaned with an im
proved air washer. A special car
buretor allows the use of kerosene
without any of the trouble that
is commonly associated with this
The Oliver No. 7 Plow was built
for your Fordson
The Oliver No. 7 plow in addition to being specially
adapted to the Fordson tractor has all its well-known
Oliver features. It buries the weeds and trash; it is
operated from the driver's seat; the furrow is always
kept at the same depth by a special stop device; in fact,
it is an ideal tractor plow designed for that one purpose
