The Courter. i\'i' " " " . K % D PUBLISHER ROXBC JUST ANOTHER "WORD. A saintly old darkey was on hi' church when he was overtaken by a severe electric storm, the farther he went the harder the wind blew, the louder the lightning splashed the darker the day .became, until finally he began praying, and he prayed the following famous prayer: "O Lord, if it all amounts to all the same with you I do wish you would send us more light and less noise on the subject." ^ And. now dear readers, for fen that you will accuse me. of putting you in the predicament in which the old darkey was placed, I had bettei make my remarks brief and to the point. HenCe I hasten to it. A few weeks ago there appeared in another column of this, paper an article written by me in which 1 sought to mention some of all of oui candidates from the President dowr to our oym county representatives. But this_time I'm confining my remarks about the two gentlemen whe are seeking the two most responsible offices of any of our home candidates. One is an office of much responsibility by reason of the large number of- people which it repre sents. The other one is an office of much responsibility by reason of the duties that fall upon the one whc fills said office. In' mentioning Mr. 3. W. Noell foi senator 1 sought to mention the fact that he was a man who had the confidence of the people. This one thin^ alone dear readers, is enough to nominate and elect Mr**i. W. Noell as oui next state senator. But that is net all of it, we owe it to our sister county on the east to bring forth the best man possible as well as to ourselves. Granville County furnishes good men when it comes Tier turn to furnish a man. Now can't Person County furnish just as good men? I contend that she can, and in Mr. J, W. Noell we have a representative man, yea a man of whom we all should feel justly proud. He has declared till intention to serve his fellourman. II any man in the county had the interest and wefare of the people at heart it is Mr. J. W. Noell. And for sheriff my old friend Mr. J. L. Cothran is a man about which too much cannot be said for him. In my recent' article I mentioned his having broken up the Blind Tiger in his home community. This is true, the Blind Tiger business is almost unknown in this part pf the qpunty. If all of our constables were as stricjt as Mr. Cothran in seeing to it that our laws were carried out the Blind Tiger would dry up with thirst, and we should have prohibition in the truest s.ense. Bravery and courage are two of the important ear marks of a good officer. ? "Bravery is needed when they face the foe, Men of such ranking no cowardice should show." Of this quality Mr. Cothran has the good fortune to be possessed with not a little of it. He is'brave when he faces danger and forgets self thinking onlv of the faithful discharge of duty. To be an officer true to the post of duty he must be courageous. "Courage wjlt then uplift us, Courage that Is -.divine, And our gladened faces with love will shine." Fired with a" determination to do ones duty backed up with the bravery, required for the performance of said duty will go a long ways towards perform^g', iL Of thia latter quality M. Cothran happens to the" good fortune tP' he b-imfilL. of it. Vet in my own c'Sfidii^flpinion a man might still be the possessor "of the above named qualities, and . stiil be an abiect failure because what will his bravery and aourage amount to if he is not Godfearing. A fnan may be the possessor of every quality known to the human tongue, and with God left out of his life be. s miserable failure. ^ I happen to know that both of the gentlemen mentioned above, are men of the truest type of christian character, both of whom being, leaders among their respeetiva denomination. To my mind this speaks louaer than words of recommendation -that could be offered toJV<piuer 01 tndm. Dut-tbhr article" wonld be twcompteta wcie I to fafrto?iiemlnd~our sis far voters of their sacred' obligation as well as duty and privilege of vot ing.
