He.too,intimates that he would prefer meeting the people at public places instead of house to house canvass, but will endeaver to see every citizen of the Coun ty. The many friends who have been instrumental in bringing Mr. Mcßeynolds out feel and be lieve that he would be the right man in the right place in the Senate chamber, representing the 23rd Senatorial District, composed of the Counties of Ok tibbeha and Choctaw. As between the gentlemen as piring to a seat in the United States, Hons, Jas. K. Vardaman, Leßoy Percy and C. H. Alexan der, his decided preference is for Jas. K. Vardaman “first, last and all the time, 7 ’ that he will stand to the Vardaman post “with out hitching from start to finish.” We with his friends believe that if elected he would make a good representative that would honor the district and one that we would not be ashamed of un der any circumstances. He asks that the good people of the District investigate and if found worthy to give him their support and influence for which he thanks one and all most kind ly in advance. He is before you for your con. sideration and his request is en tirely fair and reasonable. Communion Service.
