Facts
We believe in the efficacy of
judicious advertising; we be
lieve in advertising only facts,
such facts as we can conscien
ciously stand to; we belieye in
advertising our own business
not in a way to belittle our
competitors, but rather to tell
the'people what profit it is to
them to do business with us.
For some time we have been
advertising that we are special
ists in the repairing of Plow
Points; on this line we have
spread our claims very broad
ly, not so broadly but what
we feel amply able to back up ;
every word of our advertising |
by deeds. So be it known of
any or all Blacksmiths in this
state who care to challenge my
claim to that of being the most
expert repairer of Plow Points
now living in this state this
offer is made. 1 have two fine
forges in my shop; any man
who chooses to do so is cor
dially invited in the spirit of
friendly competition to meet
me in my shop, choose his
forge and prove, if he can, that
he equals my work in this
special line. In case he proves
his efficiency equal to the oc
casion I agree to present him
with a ten dollar bill, together
with a proffer of wages better
than he has ever before re
ceived. Now, Brother Smiths,
talk as much as you like, but
be assured that talk lacking
deeds goes no where with the
people.
day have reached that stage
of enlightenment (especially
in Holmes county) where you
must show them. Do you deed
less catch my drift?
just come, struggle across and
show the folks or go around
as men do who haven't suf
ficient props to stay them.

G. P. Wallace for Re
Election a* J. P. Beat 5
While personally preferring to give up
the office of justice of the peace at the
end of his present tenure, Judge J. P.
Wallace has *e!ded
of his constituency and agreed to become
candidate for re-election to the magis
trate's office for Tchula precinct, District
No. 5, subject to the action of the voters
in the Democratic primaries to be held
in August of the present year. HU con
stituents have presented the matter in
such a light that he could not well refuse
to serve and be true to his ideals as a
loyal citizen, ever ready and willing to
perform civic duties for the benefit of
the community in which he lives. There
are no pecuniary inducements connected
with the 6ffice whatever, as it has been
conducted by Judge Wallace,
never tried to make a cent out of his
official position, but has endeavored in
every way to keep down litigation and
strife in the community. Many cases
brought before him are never placed on
the docket, as through his mediation
and advice compromises are affected and
reconciliations made. He is broadminded
to the solicitation

He has
and big-hearted and sympathetic and
"tempers justice with mercy" and lets
the weak and erring petty offenders off

inality are dealt with firmly and ade

such as to meet the hearty approval of

Criminality has been reduced to a mini

rancor or bitterness whatever. His ad

incipient neighborhood "squabbles 1 " have '
thus been duly prevented by his timely

Holmes *county for over thirty con
secutive years. Years ago he held the
magistrate's office and has also served
as mayor of the town of Tchula with j
eminent satisfaction to his constituency. ]
He is a most useful and progressive citi- j
