D. E. SLAGLE FOR TRUSTEE i
D. E. Slagle has made a vigorous cam--
paign upon his merits ana nas won the es
teem of the people at large. ' ;
It is generally believed that he will receive
the nomination for trustee by a handsome
majority. In fact, he will hardly loose a dis
trict in the county.
Dow is deserving of the position he as
pires to, for there never was a more con
stant, energetic worker for the Democratic
party in Putnam county, ever ready with his
shoulder at the wheel, trying to roll the par
ty to victory. ., ,.
The chaim of friendship he has linked to
gether throughout the county means that
should, he win the nomination, which is a
foregone conclusion,' that he will no doubt
lead the party to victory in August : .r
