TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION One Year $2.00 Six Months si. oo . Fofif Advtninni RcprtMMMnr THE AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION BOOSTING JUDGE BRATTON FOR U. S. SENATOR Judge Sam G. Bratton, while hold ing court hert during the week, was repeatedly asked by friends "if he would Accept the Democratic nomina tion for United States Senator in the room he found that someone had Htolcn all his money from his clothe and he whs flat broke, for the winner (jot the entire purse. You can bet there were no fake fights in those dnyg and the sports got a real run for their money. A fiart of the suggested work for the Chamber of Commerce during the coming year is getting the property owners of Hagcrman Avenue interest ed in paving that street. This would be a tfreat benefit to the farmers and wheat hnulers, This street gets in very bad condition during rainy weather and trucks loaded with grain have found it very difficult at times to get into the elevators. PUTTING YOUR TOWN FIRST. The patriotic citizen is the one who puts his home town ahead of all oth ers. He trades with his neighbors in election of September." The Leader i sP-te ' the inducement! offered by is of the opinion that the idea does tho ma'l order houM not appeal to Judge Bratton. and that He tuke Pride in nil schools nd he is satisfied on the bench, for the i churches. present, at least. The Judge is popular and Well liked by both republicans and democrats, both for his absolute fairness and sterling character, with the addition that every democrat in the eastern part of the state loves the man, and He tells every prospector that he lives among the best people that God ever made. He boosts each new enterprise that is opened up and always declares that there Is room for more. No man ought to live in a plnce mam XfilGARETTEZr A new size package t Ten for 10c. Very convenient. Dealers carry both; 10forl0c;20for20c. It's toasted. CERMAN SHIPS TO BE USED AS TARGETS cannot be satisfied until they have a' u"ll'M he thought that plnce was the chance to work and vote for him for the U. S. Senate. Like every other democratic news paper on the cast side, we're strong for Sam G. Bratton for the Senate Fort Sumner Leader. All over the state democrats' arc expressing the opinion that Judge Bratton is the strong man for tho democrats to put out. Should he be willing to make the race he would poll an almost solid vote on the east Hide and would receive many republi can as well as democratic votes. Clovis just must have more side walks. Wo are growing into a little city and not one-fourth of the city has sidewalk facilities. The rocent rains impress upon all the necessity of providing these conveniences during the next few years. Hereford will hold a big Round-up celebration on the 24th and 25th of June, and is expecting a big crowd from surrounding towns. Clovis will have special Fourth of July exercises. It is well that these dates do not con flict so that people in this section can attend both celebrations if t'.ey desire. Dempscy and Carpentier will soon battle for the heavy-weight champion ship of the world. The winner and loser will both make a small fortune out of the fist battle. How much dif ferent from the first heavy-weight fight of importance which was staged between John L. Sullivan and Paddy Ryan in 1882. They fought with bare fists in those days and Ryan was knocked out in the ninth round with his jaw bone broken in two places. When he staggered to his dressing best location beneath the sun. He j it fleets on his intelligence when he i kicks, because he has full freedom 1 to go where he pleases. Men who are worth something to a community, to society, to civilization, are the ones wl'o have faith in those around them and who find that which is commend able in their town, rather than that to fall out with. When we visit a city the individual who wins our respect and friendship is the one who begins to tell us about nil the pood tilings in that city. The more enthusiastii. b becomes the bet ter we like him. But when a fellow begins to knock and talk hard times ninl to question the honesty of all (hose around him, we never go bnck to have another conversation with that follow. Hard times come to every com munity; there are seasons when it takes a stout and hopeful heart to see the sunshine. But there is some thing so likiible about the citizen who talks of the silver lining to the clouds that he can always have a crowd gath ered about him. Someone has said something simi lar to this, but we are going to say it anyway: The man who is an optimist might make his home in the poorest town on earth, but people will make a beaten path to hie door to hear h'm boost it.
