There has been no news sent from
our thriving burg since old Blazo rolled
"X. Y. Z."in the mud. We wish to
give an account of the G. 0. P. primary
at the X roads. There was eleven of
the faithful present. We met and we
deliberated and it was resolved that we,
the eleven faithful ones, wanted office
and we wanted to be the delegates, and
we vottd as there was three delegates
to elect, it was agreed to send the three
who received the most votes. The first
ballot stood, eleven votes caHt and eleven
names presented and it ran thus to Ihe
24th bullot. It was theu moved that we
take a recess of five minutes for Cole to
make a few remarks. He said in part:
"Fellow citizens aud countrymen, you
all know me.. You know tliat I am one
of the tried and true; you have knowu
me from childhood; you know that I
have held the office once and I want it
again ; yon know that I want any ollice
that 1 can gut if I qan get it legitimately.
I move we proceed to b 'llott."
It was found upon a close count of the
ensuing hnllot that there were eleven
nanius, but some way the doctor had
received two vote and was therefore
elected. The next ballot resulted in the
election of Charley by two votis. Before
going further my patriotism compelled
me to make a few more remarks. I took
occasion to remind the remaining ten
faithful that they had known me from
childhood; that they knew iu the daya
of my boyhood how I played around
their doorsteps, and pulled their cats'
taila and their dogs' tails until they
howled their loudest howls, and I

FROM A WELL-KNOWN DRUGGIST
To Whom It May Concern:
Of late there has been a good deal
of discussion in regard to advertised
medicines and their value. We want
to say to every man, woman and child
in this vicinity that the most valuable
preparation of cod liver oil, the best
tonic reconstructor, health restorer and
strength-creator we have ever sold in
our store is Vinol.
Vinol is not a patent medicine; it
contains no injurious drugs, and it act
ually does contain all of the medicinal
curative elements of cod liver oil, taken
from fresh cods' livers, but without a
drop of oil, and is delicious to tho
Vinol is recognized throughout the
world as the greatest strength-creator
for old people, weak, sickly women,
children, nursing mothers, and after
a severe sickness.
Vinol cures hacking coughs, chronio
colds, bronchitis and all throat and
lung troubles. Unequalled to create
an appetite, and make those who are)
too thin, fat, rosy and healthy. j
Vinol is sold on a positive guarantee. J
