J. W. McCarson, who . came very near being elected sheriff four years ago, is in the race for sheriff this year. He is as well known in the county as any man and his friends are confident of his election. It. will take the full Democratic strength and a few of the other party to win the race. Fralo Kuykendall.is right after the tax collector's job" running against an old timer, W. P. Brown, who is now , serving his second term and had a closeand bitter race in securing the nomination from his party for the third term. In the -race for legislature C. P Rogers was the only nominee of the Democratic party in the primary out- sme ui me iaee iui suite stsuaw;, which - is really more Ithan a county office, there being three counties in the district. Mr. Rogers is making a strenuous- campaign. He has already visited every voting precinct in the county and is making a clean cam paign. He expects to beat the Re publican nomineje, ,Brown,lVw Jack son,, by a close figure. The candidates for ' commissioners are all Republicans and are taking life easy until after November 8. . W. A. .
