It(, declared that If stores did not do this, they could have no grounds for a com plaint if their male help were sud denly taken away from them In the midst of a busy season. Mr. Wood called upon the people of laturens to substitute female clerks for iale clerks In the stores. lie ask ed the ladies to go to the stores and otlices, and other establishments, and ask for positions where there were anly positions that oould as well he filled by women as by men, and thus give the enployers ai oportlility to release these nien1 for war work.

The speaker charEcterized tlese places of blisiless as ''no good in peace times, and a iperfect nuisance in war time."

Voters and Friends of I2aurons Coun ty: As shown by returns, I ail ii a see ond race for Supervisor. I desire to thank all my friends for the good support given ine in this race. I have endeavored to do iny duty and to keep the best Interest of the people first in mind and In asking the sup port of all the people in the second race I pledge anew ml1y loyalty to ilny county's interest. I believe that some are under a wrong impresslon its to the means' available for road work. Teio question of road inprovement has been paramount in this race. I know that somic were disappoint ed last year that our road bond sale fell through but this was unavoidable owing to abnormal conditions of war times. Realizing that disappointnlent would result fromi failure to start pernalelt Work the County Board of Commissioners exerted every effort to get tile bonds off. Disappointed In that wo have fried to do the bust possible for our roads with the neans at hand. The number of convicts on tile roads has been about one-third the usual iuumber. Hired labor has been searce and hard to get, sometimes almost lim l)ossible to Obtain, an(d it has therefore been impossible to work lie roads as vel as we otherlwise could have done. By adding improved iachlinery we are as far as possible making up for labor shortage. but as everyone knows i here is much work that can only be dono with pick and shovel, consequently it is impossible to get the saimie results that could be had with i more labor. I tinld that some 1111k tlhat we coild u3so tile iloney collecItd last year for interest. on coad bonds, which the treasurer has loaned out, but we can not under the law, which allows nonoV to be used only for tile lpu1rplose of- the aplpropriation. This could be author ized by legislative enac(tment, however. I feel that I can give as good roads for the money as anyone. If a hun dred dollars' worti of work Is needed on a road. then fifty dollars will only half work it. Your Supervisor cannot levy taxes. If you want more work on the roads ask your legislative dele :gationl to provi(le the means and we will give the roads; and as much value for the dollar as anyone. 11oping that. lie Iwople will all give Ile their favorable consideration, and as'king the continued support of all 11my' friends, I am, Very re.spect ful ly, I . it. ifrr m m R.
