Dear Sir-The office of Commissioner of the

gift of the people of Staunton. It'should be
filled by a man who is universally recognized
as capable, conscientious and painstaking.
More than that, when the city has any favors
to bestow, they should go to those who have
given ungrudgingly of their time and labor to
build up the city. No man has given more
generously of both, in proportion to his
means. Recognizing your merits, among
which is your lifelong fidelity to iho Demo
cratic party, It is with great pleasure that -ye
ask you to run for Commissiouer of the Reve
nue, promising you our hearty support. j

therefore, a candidate for said offlce, subject
to the decision of a Democratic primary.

ability to administer tho office acceptably
and to my desire to promote the interests of
the city. Respectfully,

Two Ways of
Getting Glasses!
One is to go to a firstclass
optician, have your eyes prop
erly tested and get you what
you need—the other, to go to
a merchant who keeps specta
cles, make a 'grah in the bag'
as it were, get a pair that
don't fit you (although it may
seem so for the moment) and
run the risk of ruining your
eye sight entirely.
If you need the services of
a good optician we can serve
you. We make no charge for
examination and charge a
moderate price for the glass
