Some loggogtious alorgthtlicf
of said platform ar as follows: -.1.
Put down our county com
m'ssineta to three at thre d 1
lars per day. . '
2. That Rowan establish a pub
ic highway commiesicn cf thte-
a mnetent men, ta a o mmistirn
ohaTe atsolute cntrl of thp

3 That there shall t e a repcxt

thd money ci mii'p in ani sll that
:ce ont and where it g es and a1
to said r- j ort thall be s atd
u drbtedo89 of tbe c unty that
the people of said county mV
know if tbe debt is being decora
d or increased.
The above is only suggestion.
Why JL inggett thre doliars p i
day for coantv oommissioners the
democratic party at tbe last ebc
t on had seventeen candidate;
invio' 8 to serve tbe county st
the pricasai") coinuj ssio ters wi
getting before the legislature pais
ed a law allowing them four dol
lars pr day, whiob was all uncall
ed for by tbe Masses of hs people
of said county. Now I think it
w ae fo- the Democratic part)
of Rowan ocuuty to adopt a plat
form along the lines suggested if
uot in letter in substance. I
think tbe voters and taxpayers of
Rowan coutity will take more in
tfrst in politics and will- pay
their (axu m re freely when they
have a full report of th adminis
tration of R au county
At the proper tune there can be
many more th.cgs added to a plat
form hit will te o' gret benefit
to Rowan county. Now I put th
ibeve suggesMoiis to the perple of
Rowan ccnr.ty hoping to hear

To Lydia E. Pinkham Medi
Women who are well often ask "Are
the letters which the Lydia E. Pinkham
Medicine Co, are continually publishing,
genuine?" "Are they truthful? "
" Why do women write such letters? "
In answer we say that never have we
published a fictitious letter or name,
Never, knowingly, have we published
an untruthful letter, or one without the
full and written consent of the woman
who wrote it.
The reason that thousands of womeq
from all parts of the country write such
grateful letters to the Lydia E. Pink
ham Medicine Co. is that Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound has brought
health and happiness into their lives,
once burdened with pfcsn and suffering.
It has relieved women from some a!
the waist forms of female ills, from dis
placements, inflammation, ulceration,
irregularities, nervousness, weakness,
stomach troubles and from the blues.
It is impossible for any woman who
is well and who
has never suffered
to realize how these
poor, suffering wo
men feel when re
stored to health;
their keen desire to
help other women
who are suffering as
