on the old rock hill. The most ol the work
done was corduroying. While w were en

men turn ont from twelve to fifteen thou

contest with the Mink mock courton Thurs
day evening. It will be their last meeting

Two years ago at the election Beaver
Creek went people's party, and the reason
was because no republican speakers visited
this precinct, so they all got stuck on Joe
Waldrop's speaking. Now if the republic
can candidates will pay this place a visit
this year and tell the voters why they are
republicans it will bring these voters back
home again where they belonged two years
ago. A good many have already seen the
folly of joining the populists and are work
ing for the republican ticket while others
are almost ready to return.
