It is not right to ride a free horse to death, with such scant rations Mr. Editor. The present in cumbents have been sacrifice ing their time and talent for the good of the Democratic party for finite a number ' of years, to be exact, as follows S. M, Gary, 20 years at.$::,.r00 $70,000; Hunter Norman, 12 years at $3,500.' $40,000; Joe House, 12 years at $2,500, !v5H.00O; Jarl Uowers, ti years at $2,500, 15,000, at end of their present terms. The fees per year are approximated but not far wrong I think. In other words these gentle men at expiration of their present terms will have re ceived from the county the small sum of $155,000. Of course this sum is a mere pit tance for 'the service they have rendered, and I for one do not think the Democratic . irty should further impose such hardship on these gentlemen No doubt but these gentlemen, two years ago, would gladly have cast their mantles on others, but there were none to be found willing to help bear the bilrden, but from reports I hear there are some good Democrats now who feel that they can't resist this call to duty any longer, and are willing to lay them selves on the Democratic altar for six years at least. Now, Sterling, Hunter, Joe" and Jarl, you all have been faithful ser vants (at least in holding on to your jobs,) and no doubt but that you will receive and de serve the plaudits ot your countrymen, Well done.
