JOHN K. JSCOTT
An individual of this city who publishes weekly a hand bill devoted
to slander and black mail of those whom he does not like, and cannot control,
has published numerous and deliberate falsehoods concerning myself and my
candidacy and reflecting on my integrity and honesty.
I hacl intended to follow the example of the many good 'citizens of
this city, who have been slandered and vilified by this man who fattens on
black mail and abuse, and ignore his charges, but the importance of this elec
tion and my desire to be set right in the minds of the people compel me to
break silence. ,
Absolutely every and all charges made by this blackmailer relative to
my taking or attempting to take, while I vvas state's attorney, any money from
the school fund or any other public fund, is absolutely, wholly and viciously
false. He, when I ordered him from my office in the court house, tried to
have -me ousted from office; failing 'absolutely in that, he tried to cause me
trouble on my report. A long and careful investigation showed that not one
penny that came into my hands had been wrongfully taken by me, the court
ruled simply that certain fees that every state's attorney before my time had
taken', were, by his interpretation of the law, not due the state's attorney, and
such fees were, therefore, NOT RETAINED BY ME during my term of office.
As to my honesty and efficiency in office Z gladly refer every citizen to any of our circuit judges or to our county
judge, resting confidently in their decision.
Do you think that Sock Island has benefited by the mud slinging, abuse and unpleasant notoriety that it has been
compelled to endure in the past few years? If the town has been hurt, isn't It the duty of every citizen to vote to keep
out of public life all who have been to blame for that condition or who are In alliance with the disturbing elements?
IT HAS A CANDIDATE, BUT I AM NOT HE.
I have for years fought that very element, it knows lam not pliant to its will therefore, it opposes my candidacy.
I have accepted the issue, and with the decent minded, patriotic citizen who loves his home town, I leave it. I am
enlisted in. the war against that element until it is destroyed, and until mutual confidence and esteem and not distrust
have become the rule among our citizens. For that reason alone, if there was no other, my candidacy is entitled to
your support. Respectfully Yours,
;.. JOHN E. SCOTT

Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There Is only one way to cure deaf
ness, and that is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused by aa
Inflamed condition of the mucous lln-
Ing of the eustachian tube. When
this tube is Inflamed you hare a ramb
ling sound or Imperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed, deafness is
the result,, and unless the infiammv
Hon can be taken out and this tube
restored to its normal condition, hear
ing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of 10 are caused by catarrk,
which Is nothing but an inflamed con
dition of the mucous surfaces. '
We will giv f 100 for any cases of
dsafaeta (caused by catarrh) that can
not be eared by Hall'a Catarrh cure.
