Voters of Frederick County: WHAT KIND OF A MAN DO YOU WANT TO PLACE IN THE OFFICE OF REGISTER of WILLS for the NEXT SIX YEARS. • All candidates may be divided into two classes; —the first are the egotistical, self-interested variety who f care for nothing but personal gain and political prestige; the second are of a far different type. They are men who have the interests of their constituents at heart, who do their duty by the p 'ople whom they are serving and who will perform faithfully and conscientiously the duties of the olliees to which they are striving to be elected What kind of a loan does the fair-minded, honest hearted portion of the public want? Answer it yourself. You would rather by far see a man of the latter type in olllce if you are a loyal citizen of the com munity in which you live, and you will without doubt give your earnest support to a man of this kind, lint j first you must familiarize yourself with the candidate before pledging him your support. HP*'- ' E • US DR. AUSTIN A. LAMAR comes to you as a Candidate for the REPUBLICAN NOMINAT.ON For REGISTER OF WILLS AT THE COMING PRIMARIES. His professional career, and his record of years in the same locality can certainly leave no room for doubt as to his honesty, his integrity, and his devotion to duly. He is without doubt one of the most prominent Republican men in Mid dletown Valley, which in the past has polled an enormous Republican vote. Rut aside from this local prominence he is well known and greatly liked all over Frederick County. If a man should he nominated who was not prominent, and had receiv -1 ed from the hands of the Republican Party more than the records of his labors justify, he would stand little chance of election, even though he should he admirably suited for the po item. Dr. I.amir, however, can truthfully say that up to this time he not received any recompense for his loyalty to his party, and for this reason is certainly, at this time, entitled to the nomination. He will, if nominated and subsequently elected to the olllce, devote his entire time to the fulfilment of his duties, giving up his professional practice in order to he personally in charge of every detail ot the work. Ibis again proves him to be earnestly working for the good of the people, by sav ing them the expense of extra clerks and by obviat ing the annoyance of “too many fingers in the pie.” Dr. Lamar is going to < I<> his best t<> make the acquaintance of all county voters, as be wants to convince them of the earnestness anil sincerity of bis campaign, but be may not of m- e-sity be able to speak to everyone. His picture, however, which accompanies ibis article, will ne siillicicnt to portray to any man tin* Doctors alert anil quickwitted faculty, while bis farsightedness and congeniality are also obvious to the average obseivet. All the Doctor asks of you is that you make a fair, honest investigation of his previous record, of his untiring devo tion to his political beliefs and ideals, and then to give him the support that tie undoubtedly so richly deserves, the support • of your friends will also be appreciated, and the Doctor extends to them as well as yoursell the solemn promise that it he is elected he will work constantly and faithfully in the performance of the duties of his olliee. i Published by authority f Advertising Manager.) t i JUNK WANTED!
