Candidacy Genuine This is to say my candidacy for sheriff is not for or in behalf of any one but myself. .My cam paign is being made in absolute good faith, .and in the desire and determination to win. Your support will be greatly appreci ated K. P. DAVIS On I By a Bystander “That was a good piece in the paper on lie* poisoning dv-rs,'’ John B. Wat kins, Jr., said to a D-spatoh mar yes terday, ‘but what are you going to do about the dogs that prowl around your house every night nosing into your garbage can? Every morning I have to go out and pick up my garb age can where the dogs have turned it over during the night.” Well, what are you going to do about it? I asked Mr. Watkins right back the same question. And he an swered me hack the same answer i gave him, “1 don’t know.” He said ho couldn’t afford to pay three or four dollars to get one of these patented high-class, fool-proof, dog proof garbage cans. And even if you could, he said, you couldn’t make everybody about the house co-operate in keeping them tightly closed. He didn t want the dogs poisoned, but ne did want something done about them getting into his garbage can. He didn't mir.d them getting in there so much as he did turning the can over and scattering stuff all around over the lot that they decided they didn’t want. He didn’t know what could be done, but thought positively something should be. Poor dogs! Everybody loves them, still nobody loves them. They call the dog man’s best friend, out yet he makes a lot of trouble for man and sometimes turns on the human and puts him out of the way. Man he get? mad, too. and then starts phooi inp (he can’t do as good a job Os bit ing as the dog can. so he has to re sort to his gun). Man and his qog sign a peace treaty and get on good terms, then they fall out and declare war and start killing each other. Just like men getting along together, ain’t it? Well, Mr. Watkins, I'll make this suggestion to you about your garbage can. Suppose you either take it in house every night or sit out there all night yourself and shoo the dogs away. Then while the dogs that prowl around in the night time are sleeping in the daytime, you can tuck yourself away in your bed and do the same. What do you think of that idea? The big road shovel that has been digging up main street had one of its biggest audiences Thursday mormn b along about the time it was finishing up that part of the job around tne Montgomery street intersection. They were lined up along the' fronts of stores for nearly half a block from the corner taclc toward the fire house. The thought just occurred to me that if ther* was some way it. could be done, (he city might just put a high fence around the shovel and then charge admissions. If tney had been doing that ever since tn* shovel’s been here, and been charging fifty cents a head for every admis sion they would by now have just about enough money to pay for the city's part of the cost of putting u, the white way. Reckon though it ain’t a bad idea for something to be free. Costs you money to do just about everythrng you do now but breathing. And if may not be so long before somebody invents a breath tax. A store stuck k sign out in from reading “Fresh Fish for Sale Here To day”. - And when you analyze the idea back of that sign you’ll see there’s no real need for more than just tne one word “fish”. Let’s see now. If; the store is selling fish it could hardly expect a customer to suppose it would be telling about It if they were on sale somewhere else so why the word “here”? If it hangs cut -he 3ign at all why the word "today” when it is naturally supposed the fish are on sale today or the sign wouldn't be out there. Then, the dealer could hardly expect the public to buy his fish if they weren't fresh. And if he-* dealing in fish, of course he’s got them for sale. So that eliminates the word sale. Now we have left only the word “fish”. In the final analyses, isn’t that enough? Don’t that convey the whole message? This diagnosis ain’t original with ! me. All I get credit for is remember- ■ ing it and telling it. Guess this’ll be enough for toaa^. • S’long. iiiili “Good Old Days” Recalled as Buggy Mires Its Way Through ‘‘Main >Drag” Shades of the ’good old days’’ when men were men and the city streets and country roads were the same, both avle deep in mud, were recalled here today as two men came driving up Henderson’s main street in a. buggy drawn by a mule. As the mule slipped and slithered through the mud and the buggy mired pedestrians talking on the streets be gan to recall how Joe’s dray or some body’s wagon mired deep into the “main drag” in the years before it was paved. But all their tall stories could not touch one told on the street since It was torn up. It seems that this gentle man was on liia way to work one , morning and passed along southeren part of the “drag” he noticed a very good hat out in the street. He quickly threw down a plank over the mud pick ed up the hat but was very much sur prised to see a man’s face beneath’ll. He quickly asked the man why he didn’t get out. He said he couldn’t, his feet were caught in the stirrups of his saddle the poor horse having sunk into one of the numerous bottom less pits in the thoroughfare. Os course, this last tale was jusi one of the jokes told about the street. You know, Americans are great pe^r I pie they laugh and joke about some thing that is inconveniencing them a great deal. Truly, a great nation. Henderson Daily Dispatch Juniors To Present West End Flag, Bible Appropriate Ceremonies Will Be Conducted on School Grounds Sunday Afternoon at 3 O’Clock; Mayor Watkins and T.
