MILTON CITY ELECTION.
Temperance Side Wins the Day
Much Enthusiasm Shown In Choos
ing City Officers.
Milton, Dec. 10. The temperance
element hnve won again the victory
over the saloon element and elected
the dry ticket at the city election
held here Thursday.
The temperance people are .highly
elated over their victory. They feel
that the expression of the people as
given at tho polls Is the popular senti
ment of the majority and it Is now
thought that the Milton Social Club
resort, which has been the cause of
so much friction recently, will be
closed at once. Milton Is known far
and wide as a dry town. There has
not been any liquor sold openly here,
but the Social Club manager, It is
claimed, kept liquors which could be
secured by the members of the club
This caused several arrests and some
heavy fines by the city recorder.
which were sustained In the district
court to which tho cases were carried.
The temperance element Is deter
mined to see that there Is no selling
of liquor in Milton as well as no gam
bling. A combined effort has been
made to stamp out tho two evils and
the efforts are meeting with success.
The new city officers are: S. A.
Miller, mayor: G. W. Ingle, recorder;
Robert Vancll, marshal; N. A. Davis,
treasurer; C. E. Berry, John Frazler,
C. B. Tolen, W. A. Banister and J. I.

worst forms of Indigestion, water

But this excellent medicine did me a
world of good. Since using 1 I can
eat heartily and have gained 35
