The election is over, but from
Franklin comes the following story,
which, no doubt, is the most unique
of the entire campaign. The Frank,
bn Press says:
W. G. Barker and Jim Clark were
scouring the countryside of Macon
county to round up Democratic voters
and pret them to the noils. Th
upon a man working in a field.
"Voted'yet?'1 Barker inquired.
"No," the man replied-"I ain't fit
to go to the polls." He pointed to
tiv. torn, ragged pants he. was wear
ing. IhWe are the worst times I
ever saw. I'vp nlwavo vnto1 fVio
Republican ticket, but I'll never vote
it again as long as there's breath in
To Mr. Barker, who is one of the
.taunchest Democrats in th county,
il was sn opportunity to do some
good missionary work.
"Well," he ventured, "if 1 lend you
my, pants will you go and: vote the
"I sure will," answered the other
fellow, whose name Mr. Barker de
clined out of pure neighborliness to
reveal. "But there's new twins up at
the house and my wife can't go."
But Mr. Barker is a justice of the
nea.ee- and he got an absentee from
the man's wife. Then he went out
into the brush, removed his pants
' nd stood shivering for half an1 hour
or so while Mr. Clark took the former
Republican to the polls to cast his
first Democratic vote. .
