Place to Live, Abounding in Natural Resources and Inhabitated By a Progressive People The people of Nevada county are proud of their country, and they have a right to be. While small in area, it is one of the biggest counties in many res pects of any in the state. It has the biggest hearted people in the world, and a display of its products reveals that it can raise the biggest ears of corn, the biggest sweet potatoes, the big gest watermelons and as much grain to the acre as any of the richer counties of the South. While the county cannot add one cubit to its statue, it is rap idly adding to its population and to its wealth. In 1880 its popu lation was only 12,958. In 1910, the federal census gave the coun ty 19,334. and an estimated pop ulation. based on the school cen sus of last year, gives it nearly 23,000 people. From $1,760,065 in 1900 the value of farm prop crty m Nevada county increased to *$3.808 438 in 1910. a gain of over 100 per cent. Here we are blessed with all the advantages of other states in the matter of natural resour ces. such as black soil, fertile and productive, good water, good roads, a delightful climate, with all bad features, such as cold winters, blistering hot summers, destructive floods and death dealing cyclones, left out. ■ hc--e a quiet, law-abiding people, and are generously sup plied with good schools and churches. Children are reared under good influences and have the environments that make for strong characters. While I’rescott is the princi pal town of the county, there are many small places throughout its interior that are rapidly building up into substantial places, and in many of them con siderable business is transacted. Its public buildings will com pare favorably with any in the state. Its magnificent $70,000 court house is a structure that we are proud of. Both its ex terior and interior is modern and beautiful. Its arrangement' is convenient and will stand for! years to come as an adequate: structure in which to transact * the business of the county. Crops are bountiful, and mar keting is easy. Nevada county roads are in . excellent condition. Much sub-' stantial work has been done in improving the thoroughfares during recent years, and there is a movement on toot now to create improvement districts un der the Alexander law by which districts may be bonded to se cure funds with which to build more permanent and substantial roads through the county. Good roads of recent years has be come a hobby with many people and Nevada county has caught the spirit of the age along this line. The farm life of the county is an ideal one. Here it is possible for every one to own their own plantation. It may be small, or it may consist of hundreds of acres, but sufficient to make a comfortable income for the fam ily. Nice homes dot the county, with substantial barns surround ing. There is a meadow nearby I There is a Rea! Difference Cream of tartar, derived from grapes, is used in Dr. Price’s Cream Baking Powder because it is the best and most healthful in gredient known for the purpose. Phosphate and alum, which are de rived from mineral sources, are used in some baking powders, instead of cream of tartar, because they are cheaper. If you have been induced to use baking powders made from alum or phosphate, use Dr. Price’s Cream Baking Powder in stead. You will be pleased with the results and the difference in the quality of the food OR.

Pecan and other profitable trees grow upon the lawn, and the garden at the rear of the house pro duces everything that the table affords. The orchard at the side grows the choicest fruits and there are scattered coops for the hens iind the little chicks. Bee hives against the back fence pro duces the choicest honey, while surrounding the place, on both sides of the road are bountiful crops of cotton, corn, oats, sor ghum, sweet potatoes, alfalfa and peanuts, while the wooded pasture encloses his horses, cows, hogs and sheep. Content ment reigns, and during the long winter nights the family gather around the huge fireplace to eat hickory nuts, walnuts, pop corn and peanuts gathered bounte ously during the harvest season. Ours is, or ought to be a happy and contented people, for truly nature has supplied us with everything that makes for peace and plenty. Nevada County’s Magnificent Court House HENRY B. ALMAND ----- Candidate for Tax Assessor of Nevada County To the Voters of Nevada County ; I would be very much pleased j to meet each voter in the county i personally and talk with you face to face in the interest of I my candidacy in the race for tax Assessor of Nevada county. But owing to the short time that remains before the primary and my condition, having only one leg, I am sure I will not be ; able to see all of the voters be fore the primary-. Therefore 1 have chosen this method of pre senting my claims to you. In the first place 1 want to say that I have made the land busi ness and penmanship a special study for some time and under ' tand it; therefore I feel that 1 am qualified for any <>1' the duties of the' office. 1 feel that I need the office more than any one in the race as 1 have two families depend ent on me for support and my oldest boy is only 5 1-2 years old. There have been many false reports circulated about my fin ancial condition, some say I am rich; some say I have 12 bales of cotton under my shed and some say 1 have money out on interest. All of these reports are false. 1 am in debt. Keep on the watch for such reports and correct them. 1 will see as many as my condition and time will admit of. If I fail to see you, don’t think that I did not want to see you. Thankmg- each one of you in advance for anything: you may be able to say or do in my behalf I am, Yours truly, HENRY B. ARMANI).

ANDREWS Can lidate for Representative in the Next Legislature To i iie voters of Nevada County: I Icince my announcement last we* k for representative, the as | sei:.on 1 made as to the great 'demand f< r some one to run j against my opponent, has been loudly substantiated, in that 1 har * received scores of letters and 1. ive had numerous calls ov< r the telephone assuring mo that 1 would be elected beyond nn\ reasonable doubt. Now, my L ie ds. there is a reason for this. When ><>u send a man to the legislature you expect, him to carry out the wishes of a ma jority of the people, and not be subservient to the will of a few. They expect, and rightly 90, for him to stand for them against thepowerful corporations. Has my opponent done this? They expect him to be their servant, and if there is a doubt as to the 'advisability of a law, the people are entitled to that doubt. A servant is one who does the bidding of his master the people and not one who says, this is a good law, take it. Has my opponent acted as ser vant in making some laws for this county, or lias he acted as master? I promise you that if I am your representative I will at all times be willing to abide bv the will of the majority. I will ; undertake to pass no law that will i not meet with the approval of the masses. I shall meet you, or as many of you as possible, while making the joint canvass, and tell you a few of the things I ! stand for. I want my friends over the county to become interested in my race and help me to win by the largest majority of any candidate for this office in years. 1 thank you for past favors and for the encoragement you are giving me in this race. Should 1 be elected I will be your servant at all times. Your friend, C. B. Andrews.
