However, after giving the matter serious consideration, I have yielded to the demand of my party friends and hereby announce myself as a candidate for County Judge. I believe that the affairs of a purely agricultural community would at least be as safely and well administered if occasionally in the hands of a farmer. That all localities and people may be represented and their interests ap predated and considered, their agents are cnoscn from dtifercnt sections from time to time; so as in our county where the road money, work, etc., is to be distributed, it would seem that to choose a farmer judge, from an outlying section, might better equalize matters. f My experience as a Magistrate for several years, and as a taypayer, leads IMPROVEMENTS MADE AT B .C.

It was made possible by the diligent work of the Parent Teacher Association and the work of the high school pupils. We arc sure that the town and county are justly proud of these im provements and will show their ap preciation by assisting in every pos sible way the County High School.
