They must guard the expenditure of the county funds, but they must do more, they must seo that all dis bursements return to the taxpayers 100 cents for every dollar that goes out, and that It must buy somothlng the county needs. Your commissioners elected will play a largo part In the develop ment of the county the next two years and a wise choice should be made. Absolutely no reflection is cast upon the ability or integrity of the candidates upon the demo cratic ticket, but hi view of the fact thai the present Hoard of Com missioners have established an en viable record why not keep them in Ihc harness for another term? What have they accomplished In road building for the county? A road from Clayton south to the county line, from Clayton west to the counly line, from Clayton north (o counly line, and by untiring ef forts wilh the slate highway com mission secured the consent of the commission to maintain the Colo rado to Gulf highway through the county. All or this did not just happen, and would not have come anyway. Imt is the result of hard work and efficient service, and will mean in a few years a syslem of good roads in (he county subject to none in the slate. No ono save tho county commissioners arc entitled to the credit for Ibis .splendid piece of work. The funds of the county have been accumulating, and (ho Hoard is retiring (he bonded indebtedness of (he county. This bespeaks hon- esly and efficient service on (heli port. Ed M. llutledge" and Grant Denny are standing on Iheir record for re election, Jack Zurich is retiring and in his siead Perry Hest is making the race. Can you heat thee men as citizens in their community? Are Ihey not the type of men (o which you point with pride nnd say they are citizens of your commun ity? Would you improve upon the characler and integrity of these men if you were to lake the best you have loft in Hie counly. You would not. On (he other hand, two of (hese men have behind them Iwo years of experience in Union coun ty's problems, the oilier a like ex perience in a neighboring stale. Mako a good investment this year and let the work go on. Keep their experience al your command and let it continuo to work for your interest. Vole for llutledge, Denny and Rest, for counly commission ers. Perry A democratic worker in the south lias his own version of why John Morrow has been dubbed John Ma nana ny some of t tic newspapers up north. He says it is because Jones nnd Hinkle have fixed their com binations for gelling votes this elec lion and John, of Colfax gets his COUNTY COMMISSIONERS The county commissioners may. if they wish, be moroly the watch dogs of the counly treasury, serve Iheir lime without leaving a single achievement to (heir record, of which their, supporters may feel I lie stale land office hi the world record for efficiency, if its record shows anything at all. And not only did (hat office handle a million dollars for the tale at the record low cost, but turned back more than fitly per cent of Ihe money appropriated for Ihe running of Ihe office, which is believed by some tn bo Ihe democratic idea n mil only incompetency and ineffi ciency, but absolute proof of in sanity. It is pointed oul that no democrat- under McDonald made such a break, not even Ihe demo- eratie Ramc warden. The democrats claim thai Iheir record for efficiency was fully up hold by the democratic game war den under McDonald, and now tin republicans are looking for that rec o rd. mm? tt-;-t-it--fr-4 v Don't Be Fooled Low Price and High Quality Don't Go Together, Stick to CALUMET Tho Economy BAKING POWDER Never accept "Just as Good" Brands; it will only mean disappointments and fail ures on bake-day, wnich are expensive.
