Every farmer who takes a paper
that admits advertising to its columns
receives the equivalent of a cash con
tribution, for were it not for the ad
vertising to help pay for the cost of
publishing the paper, the subscription
price would neccesarily be two or
three times as muco. A paper whose
subscription price is one dollar would
be at least two dollars if it had no ad
vertising patronage, hence every sub
scriber virtually gets one dollar from
the advertisers. It follows, then that
subscribers should have a kindly feel
ing for the advertisers in their paper,
and give them the preference in the
bestowal of their patronage, for the
reason that one good turn deserves

BURNS FOR CLERK OF THE
To the Democratic Voters:
The time is right upon us when we
must choose our candidates for the
different county offices. I want to
recommend a man for Clerk of the
Court that I know to be a gentleman
in every sense of the word, and one
that I have had considerable dealings
with and whom I have always found
to be honest, upright and courteous.
He is thoroughly competent and will
perform the duties of the office with
fairness to all and with credit to him
self and to the party. A. E. Bums
is the man. Nominate him and add
strength to the ticket.

OUR PRESENT COUNTY OFFI
It is a well known fact that the
campaign for county officers is draw
ing to a close, and it is important that
the Democrats of the county attend
their township primaries and vote for
the men who will fill the places with
credit to our county. These plat-c
are now filled by worthy gentlemen.
There can be no danger of jeopard
izing the party or public welfare by
re-electing to an office a competent,
trustworthy and faithful public oili-j
cial. All the candidates are worthy
men and would make good officers if
they could remain in office the ire-
quired length of time. But the ques
tion in our mind is: Docs the grand
old county of Randolph need any
changes in her present officers at this
We wnnt it understood that we
have no personal friends or enemies
in the matter, but we look at it from
an important standpoint individually.
In politics every man who wants off
ice should have an open field and ii
fair fight for office. No man should
want or try to get anything else than
an equal show in the race. The idea of
rotation should not be gone too far
from; soft palavers, which some of
the candidates use so effectively in
canvassing the voters should not
have a feather's weight in making the
ticket. You have friends and every
other man has friends and for the
next five hundred years we could not
get them all in office, if we' should
adopt a plan to rotate every election.
Relaizing that fai-t.what will you do,
vote for a friend for personal reasons
only, or be a friend to our county in
which we all share alike by her more
experienced officers ?
We do not consider it from a per-Bi-al
standpoint, but look at i. . '"or-i
a broader scope. Looking at :: froi i
a viewpoint of progress and '. . c'tr -ment
of our county, we would be vi; -me:
to let our present county officers,
r-main ns they are for years to come.
Why not? Can you point to any pe
riod in the history of our county
when it was aking as much and as
rapid progress along all lin.r. as it is
today? Randolph county is being de
veloped as never before and no coun
ty in the state has a better set of
If there is no reason why we should
change thorn for new men except
that they have held the offices long
enough. 'then I contend that there is
no legitimate reason. Some of the
arrandesi and safest men the Demo
cratic party or any other party has
ever e!r-. -ted as the people s servants
have held their offices for many terms
and each tiinp made a better officer
than before, because they knew their
work better, they had a better under
standing of the duties and responsibil
ities of the trust that was placed in
So considering their services in
helping shape the affairs of our coun
ty government, looking on down
touching the progress in development,
the material and financial prosperity
of our county, it would seem unwise
to make any" radical changes at this
BURNS FOR CLERK OF THE

To the Democratic Voters:
Please allow me to present the
name of A. E. Burns for the office of
Clerk of the Court in Randolph Coun

eight, every morning. If they both
live to be seventy years old the one
will have gained over the other, dur

A CURE FOR BUBONIC PLAGUE
I A Serum is Being .Used Which is
! Meeting Vt ith Wonderful Success.
Acording to statements of promi
nent physicians of New Orleans, the
seimm for bubonic plague has met
with success in that plague stricken
city. Drs. Oscar Bowling, C. C. Bass
and W. H. Seaman have experimented
with numerous victims and claim to
have met with success by frequent
injections of anti-plague serum in
large quantities. The New Orleans
doctors say they have carefully ob
served the steady improvement of the
bubonic plague patients, and have
practically convinced themselves that
the plague has been succesfully
treated for the first time in the his
tory of the world. Acording to Dr.
Bowling, the secret of the success of
the treatment lies in the quantity of
anti-plague serum injected.
No secret is made of the fact that
New Orleans is thoroughly infected
with the deadly plague, and at each
focus of infection the surgeons are
tracing it to the rats which infect the
wharves. The only way to eradicate
the plague is to stamp out the rats.
