The impreasion that there are not
enough heroea to claim all the Carne

Ed Wood.
The wonderful Book Type Writing
Machine installed in the Recorder'
office through the efforts of our pres
ent able Recorder, Mr. Ed Wood
makes the records read as plainly as
printing and are of untold worth to
Audubon county.
When a very small boy, he came
with his parents to Audubon county
and settled near Oakfield. His father
died when he was quite young which
left him the care of the family at
very early age. But as he grew to

quire an education and soon became
teacher of ability. When teaching at
Kimballton, Mr. Wood was elected
Recorder and assumed the office Jan
uary, 1, 1905. He now wants a re
nomination at the primariea June 20.
I hereby announce myself a candi
date for the office of Superviaor sub

f| Martin N. Esbeck.
Mr. Martin N. Esbeck is probably
one of the moat noted charactera pol
itically in Audubon county. Coming
here when quite young he worked in
Audubon for some time and learned
American ways of doing things until
almost lost his identity but Mar
was a tireless worker, and a better
8Hle*man, and a more honorable and
ougenial man than ever crossed the
iantic. He soon discovered that
business methods were popular
with our people when he, with others,
started a store at Kimballton, which,
the first, has been a success.
When hia party was all torn up and
ver a candidate for Recorder, a voice
brought Martin Esbeck before the
convention, he was nominated unan
imously. and when election came, he
was elected by a big majority and
served the county for two years. He
now desires to be a candidate for the
Board of Supervisors and asks your
support at the primaries June 20th.

A telegram from Hartford, South
Dakota, to County Superintendent
Farquhar announced the serious ill
ness of bis father-in-law, Mr. Leach,
of that place. The old gentleman re
ceived a paralytic stroke about two
years ago and from that time up to
one year ago, he gradually became
weaker while during the last year,
and especially the last few months,
he has lost his mind, not even know
ing hia people. 'Tis a sad affliction
From an article published last week
I am led to believe that AuduDon
county has such a surplus of funds on
hand that it has become necessary
to place them out at interest. As a
candidate for the nomination of Coun
ty Treasurer I am deeply interested
as well as surprised that such is the
case. This state of affairs should not
exist and if I am so fortunate as to be
connected in the future with county
affairs I shall use my best endeavor
toward paying all outstanding in
debtedness of the county at the ear
liest possible time and stopping the
payment of interest. I am then in
favor of reducting the tax levy to
point where the income is only suffi
cient to pay running expenses of the
county government under an econ
omic administration. This fact be
ing very evident that if the county
has, let us say a $20,000 surplus, that
the reduction of taxes by that amount
would mean vastly more to the tax
payer than would three or four per
cent derived from that amount. How
ever should the Supervisors at any
time see fit to place the county funds
at interest, I would heartily co-oper
ate with them in securing the best
terms possible.
