COUNTY CAMPAIGN PARTY AT CLINTON
(Continued from first page.)
caught Mr. Mash ploughing in his hold
one day, whereupon Mr. Nash declared
that he had ploughed many a day and
expected to do so again; that he had to
keep a horse for his work and that the
cultivation of small patches was a ne
cessity. During Mr. Nash's speech
some one in the crowd asked him about
the maintenance of negro summer
schools for teachers and if he had had
anything to do with that in this county,
j Mr. Nash explained that these schools
I were conducted and paid for by the
State board of education. Mr. Nash is
a very enthusiastic speaker and holds
the attention of his audience.
There are three candidates for coro
ner, Messrs. W. I). Watts, for re-elec
tion, II. (). Hairston and B. Wright
Martin. Each of these was present
and spoke briefly to the Clinton people.
Mr. Watts was at home and did not
consume all his time.
Mr. 11. B. Humbert, candidate with
out opjK)sition for the office of super
visor, was present at the Clinton meet
ing and by s|>oeial provision addressed
the people at some length on the mat
ter of the county roads. Mr. Humbert
spoke very earnestly on the need of
permanent improvement, showing very
clearly how and where good roads saved
money for the farmer in the marketing
of his crop. ' He argued the uselessness
of the farmer paying out so much of
his profit in having to travel over bad
roads. Mr. Humbert also showed that
issuing county bonds for the money to
do this work would be a better and
more economical plan than to do it by
direct taxation. He said that the time
would certainly come when this work
had to he done, so why not begin now.
After dinner the candidates for coun
ty commissioner addressed the people
chiefly on the matter of road works.
The aspirants for these two officers are
Messrs. Homer C. Culbortson, T. Ma?
Roiier, W. P. Bailey and M. W. Gray.
The candidates for the senate and the
house or representatives were all on
hand and made their usual speeches,
varying but slightly from those deliv
ered at L?ngsten and reported in last
week's issue. After these came the
two candidates for clerk of court,
Messrs. Power and Bolt. As Mr. Todd
says, these two opponents are carrying
on a mutual admiration campaign and
take out their electioneering in praising
each other. Mr. Bolt says that Mr.
Power made an excellent auditor and
that he ought to have held on to that
office, while Mr. Power says Mr. Bolt
is just as fine clerk as could be found
anywhere but that he ought to move
up higher and get out of his way.

A few words which you cannot help believing
unless you are prejudiced.
3SELL AS RENOWNED PIANOS for tone, quality, elasticity
of touch and skilled workmanship as are made. I have no
schemes to sell a piano. When I sell a piano it is direct
from the factory to the purchaser, there being no unnecessary ex
pense. The price is the very lowest possible and the profit shorter
than of any dealer in this section. I do not have pianos drayed
around and left on trial, which adds to the cost and the buyer
pays it. If you know these facts and do not buy of me (for I sell
for less) then you simply prefer to pay from $75 to $150.00 more,
which is nothing, but robbing one's self or of your loved ones.
