A'S OFFICIAL VOTE 1
fmn the Standard
prints the official vote of Cabarma
county. The other appearance was
just the reported vote.
- This is official and therefore re
liable. It is a study for all ; and es
pecially to the nearlj 400 Democrats
in the county who failed to get to
the polls on election day.
Preserve this, it is a record :;r,d it
will do good for each Democrat to
look over it occasionally, and there-
" bear in mind that one's country
must be thought of.
