Hello Folks!
Here we have Sheriff Hans Madsen mak
ing his campaign for re-election to the of
fice of sheriff of Sheridan county, Mon
tana.
Sheriff Hans is pointing with pride to
his record. He is hotfooting over the coun
try saying: "What a great Sheriff am I. I
caught the little black hen after Grace Mc
Gowan told me where to find it. Don't you
think I am some officer?"
Over at the corner the murderer of Ray
mond Logan is fingering his nose at Sher
iff Hans.
On the other corner the man who bur
glarized the Moe Barber Shop is doing the
same thing.
At one bottom comer the robber of Ros
stad's store at Comertown is also fingering
his nose.
At the other comer the little Mouritsen
boy lies dead in his own blood, and the hit
and-run-driver that killed the little fellow
that unfortunate Fourth of July, does
the same thing.
The murderer of Raymond Logan has not
been apprehended tho he is reported to
have hidden several days in an old coal
mine at Medicine Lake.
The man who stole Alfred Hjelm's har
at Westby has not been arrested—our

Sheriff would not even try to find him—•
said it was too much trouble.
The man who burglarized Louis Moe's
barber ship has not been found though he
and the car he traveled in was seen at Sid
ney. Hans said it would cost too much to
find him, besides, he said, "The man did it
for spite."
A burglar broke into Rostad's store at
Comertown the other night and stole a lot
of merchandise. Sheriff Hans did not show
up for two or three days. Said he was
somewhere looking for bank robbers who
nad sent him word that they were about to
pull a job on Ed Powers' bank at Medi
cine Lake, and Hans didn't
want to miss
them. The Comertown burglar has
been 'caught.

ers, rum runners, bootleggers, hooping it
up for Sheriff Hans. "For he is a jolly
good fellow," they sing in a chorus. They
are all out plugging to help re-elect Sher
iff Madsen.
But Sheriff Madsen did do one big job:
h e caught the culprits that stole Grace Mc
Gowan's black hen, after Grace told him
where the hen was and who did it. The
paper supporting Madsen made a great
splurge over it. That's about all Madsen
has ever caught—Grace McGowan's black
pullets.
That is his record.
See how he dances and prances about
pointing at the black chicken; which is his
record, to which^ he points with great pride.
He wants you to vote for him again be
cause he caught the black hen—tho he has
not caught any one else.
Besides the underworld, Hans is also be
mg supported by the bankers, the under
shot jawed machine collectors, and such.
They say he will work all night to attach
a poor farmers' grain, and that's what they
want Hans is their man and they are all
for him.
But the farmers are not for Hans and
his black chicken record: they are going to
vote for Charlie Norton of Medicine Lake,
the farmers' candidate for sheriff, and they
are going to elect him too, you bet your
boots.
