The respective city committees
met last Wednesday and after tran
sacting business, adjourn .d to meet
next Tuesday and Wednesday even
ing.
Ex-Gov. Xates opened his cam
paign for the U. S. Senate at Har
din, Calhoun county, this week.
y) At a mass meeting in the first
ward, Thursday evening, Peb. 1,
the voters endorsed Maj. Otis B.
Duncan for alderman and Rev. C.
F,. Jo nos for assistant supervi
sor. The meeting was presided
over by Preston Clay and har
mony prevailed This should set
at rest the speculation in the
ward provided Mr. Duncan con
sents to accept the proffered
candidacy. Mark Anthony has
had his petition in the hands of
his constituents for the past
week and says he will be a can
didate until the polls close on
primary day. For a year we
had advocated the (as our files
will show) selection of a colored
man from the first ward to repre
sent it in the council.
Rev. Jones, who was endorsed
for assistant-supervisor, is a real
estate dealer. v
There has been such a division
in the first ward for the past few
years, it is to be hoped in the
event of Duncau or Anthony be
ing nominated, that old scores
be relegated and the one cause,
that of supporting to a man the
nominee.

The Put-It-Offs.
My friend, h»\ve you heard of the town of
Yawn,
Ou the banks of the River Slow,
Where blooms the Wait-a-while flower fair,
Where the Some-time-or-othor scents the air,
And the soft Go-easys grow?
It lies in the valley of What’s the-use,
In the province of Let-’er-slide;
That tired feeling is native there,
It's the home of the listless I don’t-care,
Where the Put-it-offs abide.
The Put-it-offs smile when asked to insure,
And they say will do it tomorrow,
And so they delay from day unto day,
'Til death cycles up and takes them away,
And their families starve, beg or borrow.
