Having been during all my man hood years an earnest and active Dem ocrat, I supposed when I entered the race for the nomination by my party tor the office of treasurer, that the only test I would be subjected to by my brother Democrats would be that of character and fitness for the office to which I aspired. My views on the financial question it seems now clear are to be made also a test, and in the judgement of many even of my former friends is deemed of sufficent gravity to disqualify me for the office, and while I do not think in a candidacy for an office that is not political in its character the test ought to be applied and that because of that my defeat for the nomination is in evitable I would not disguise or conceal any views I honestly entertain for any office in the county, and so I withdraw from the race. 1 wunaraw wunout any leeiing o disloyalty to my party, and without any chagrin at the condition that confront me. To my friends on either side o this financial question who have given the assurance of support, and who know have stood by me to the end I want to tender my wannest and most earnest thanks and to pledge to them and to the party my earnest and hearty support of all the candidates who may be nominated at the county primary Yours Truly C O.

Any favors shown him cr courtecics extended to him will be highly appreciated by C. P. Vaxdivkr, Publisher of Colriir Some Temperance Statistics. The Sceptre Life Insurance associ tion, of London, keeps its total ab stainers and moderate drinkers in two classes with the follow ing results as to death losses. According to the Actuaries' mor tality table 79 deaths of abstainers were to have been expected last year, but only 50 or 65.29 per cent, of the expectation occurred. Of the non abstainers the expectation was 125 equal 05, or 77.2"? percent. The summarization of the facts lor 12 years past shows that ths deaths of abstainers were only 58.24 per cent. of the expectation, whereas those of the moderate drinkers rose to 80.41. More than 13.000 lives were under observation with this result. This is an indication wide enough to be of material value as a warning of the perils of even moderate indulgence in the use of alcoholic linuors. It is a hazard that no one ought io take. Total abstinence is the safe and wise course. It has every reason in its favor. The Inerrieii' Carpets!
