Jim Cook Advances
In State Race
A final survey of the political sit
uation over the state reveals the
fact that the candidacy of James P.
Cook, of Concord, for state auditor,
is gaining strength daily as the peo
ple of the state are realizing just
what there is to the man. Mr. Cook
was a recent speaker before the Shel
by Kiwanis club, members present that
night will recall that the talk dealt
with “his boys,’ the kind the world
calls “bad.’ Years ago Jim Cook had
an idea of giving every boy his right
ful chance, even the “bad boys’’, and
the Stonewall Jackson Training school
is the result, a school where hun
dreds of wayward youngsters have
been placed in the right path and giv
en their chance along with more for-!
tunate boys. And through these years
the man at the helm of this institu
tion, the founder, and the one respon-!
Bible for the transformation in these
unfortunate boys for whom no one
cared, has been James P. Cook. His i
record there, making men instead of
money, for he has given his time, la
bor and thoughts without salary, is
his campaign speech. Many an honest j
and succesful young man today owes
his position in the world to the white I
haired fellow at Stonewall, who has I
never received a cent of salary, and
debt is for North Carolinians to pay, i
for these boys were and are Carolina
I)r. J. S. Dorton, secretary of the I
county fair association, has known j
Mr. Cook for many years, practically]
the entire life of the former,'lalid his
statement is that “Mr. Cook is one
of the best men I ever knewJP If a
man ever deserved the sujipwn of the
Domocrati - voters of Jtfe state, it is
Jim Cook. His self-sa«|jfice, his char
acter, his talents and ability should
place him at the head of the ticket."
Cleveland county people know Dr.
Dorton and Dr. Dorton recommends
Mr. Cook, but those who heard the
talk of the Cabarrus man before the
Kiwanis club need no recommendation
or request to vote for him. Col. A1
Fairbrother, one of the best known
writers in the state, who seldom pub
licly supnorts a candidate says of Mr.
Cook: “His talents and his ability
would save the state in its expendi
tures many thousands of dollars-—".
He sure to vote for James P. Cook
for Auditor Saturday!
ENDORSES LOGAN EOP SHERIEE
SPEAKS OF HIS WAR RECORD
At 18 years old 1 entered the Con
federate army and served 22 months.
At 21 years old my son entered the
world war and served 25 months.
Our sympathy is with the rrften who
have stood in the front ranks in the
defense of our country.
Sheriff Hugh A. Logan served 1?
months in the Spanish-American war,
and then in the World war, including
six months on the Mexican border. He
was not sent over seas, because he
was 44 years old. When there was a
vacancy in the sheriff’s we helped to
call him in, and we think the patrM
otic people of Cleveland county should
give him another term, or more, if
he wants it. We have never had a bet
ter man for Sheriff.

TURN ON THE CURRENT
DO you believe in electricity? Do you believe in its
power to run street cars, heat buildings, ring bells? If
you do you car. realize the effect of the human electricity
or Vital Force of the body; what the effects will be when
there is an obstruction of this force.
We Chiropractors release the prisoned impulse, the
tiny rivulet of Vital Force, that emanates from the mind
and flows over the nerves to the cells and stirs them into
life; this power that transforms common food into liv
ing, loving, thinking clay. r,e deal with that t-ubtle sub
stance of the soul, the individual power of God in man,
which flows through every living thing, bringing about
the great mysterious functions we call life.
PRESSURE I CON NERVES OBSTRUCTS THIS FLOW
OF VITAL FORCE
Causing weakened activities of the bodyguard physical
disorders arise. CHIROPRACTORS remove this pres
sure on the nerves, like turning on the current by means
of a switch.

HEALTH? Now is the time for you to investigate.

There is no more faithful friends cn earth

he has been faithful for many years.
To the young man of twenty we will
make this statement:

It is very much worthwhile, young man,
if you can see it. The time will pass; the
money will be spent—-either into a savings
