MEMORY On Thursday May 21, 1931, In the early hours when the golden sun was shedding forth its beauti ful light a shadow was cast on the home of Mf. and Mrs. John Tur ner and when the death angel tole Into the home and claimed for its own, his darling wife. Dearest Adoline lived to bright en their home 84 years. But as God giveth He taketh away, and He does all things well. It was His holy will that the darling wife should leave this earth of pain and sorrow and dwell with Him among the angels. Loving hands patiently minister ed to her and all was done that could be. And though we tried to hold her on earth, sweet Adolhv seemed to say. I hear a voice you cannot hear which says I must re stay. I see a hand you can not see which beckons me away, and obedient to God's will she took the loving hand that guided her acvcM the river of death and no she is happy among the an??;. Do not weep dear loved ones, for r.e is not dead, but 1 sleeping with all those who have gone ji before to f wnlt our coming. We loved you darling, yes we loved you. But Jesus loved you more, and He has sweetly called you to ) en ter shining shore. The Oohlrn gatei vere eyened :nd grnlle vjlce m'u come, and with farewell unspoken ycu faintly entered home.

They have been asked to show us tax payers where this money went ,ano for what purpose it was used. We have been waiting patiently and I think they should come out with some reason. The City of Louisville came out square and told how theirs came about. Why can't the Board of Supervisors come out with our part of it and show some reason? It seems they want to ignore the wishes of the people and go right on spending and wasting the jounty's money. Taxes are high and hard to pay, regardless of how ihey are spent. We see where the Supervisors are still building roads, leaving the old road bed and tearing down janks, pulling trees, moving fences regardless of feelings or respect or aamage to any man, costing hundreds of dollars that could be sav-o'd. We have roads built in the 'ast 2 years that haven't had a machine on them in 6 months. I mow some roads that have been mpassable all the past winter that went been touched, and you :an't drive over them now. Still, he road crew is building a road n less than one mile of it, throw ing away time on a good, dry san dy road. We have roads in Beats 1 and 3, C know haven't had a machining in 12 months. It seems go ahead! cgardless of how it looks behind. It seems to me, that it would be economy or good business judg ment to put some of tills surplus money on these roads W3 hav;i al ready started, with the bond issue money and finish them up as the tate says it will take them when finished, which then we will be ione with. The bond Issue money seems to lave given out Just before the oads were finished. Just why the noney didn't build the roads that vere planned, I don't know. It seems it took a pretty good part cf t to buy machinery to work with The best I can get it up, about $32,000.00 worth of machinery to build 20 miles of road. When money played out, work stopped, ma chinery went where? We don't icnow who Is to blame. I just know who Issued the warrants, the Supervisors. If we had the cost of he machinery we could finish the .oads and have some money. The ommlssioners say the Supervisors took over the machinery. I don't konw, If they did they should finish up those roads for they have no right to rob the bond issue. It ;eems as If the whole thing has been run In haphazard way. Now, Mr. Taxpayer, the time has :ome when we need help, we need ncn In office who will look after :he interest of the county In a bus- ness way, and men that will han-lie the county's affairs In a way hat they can show the people that hey want to do the right thing ind to the Interest of the Taxpay- rs. I believe in progress, In an -conomlcal and business way. Now Is ten I Just think we have spent over $200,000.00 for road machinery n Winston county In the last few ears, and how much roads have ve got? Just 2 miles of gravel. A owe over $8.850.O0 on these oads. I see on ft candidate card vho cays "Vote for one who has nade your improvements go up nrl taxes couie down." I see In Beat 1 In 197 road maintenance fund was 1 mill. I see In 1930 the matntainance funds are 3 mills. How about It Mr. Taxpayer?

AND N. O. AND G. N. GET HIGH HONORS Mobile, Ala., June 1. Advice has just been received from the American Museum of Safety that the Gulf, Mobile and Northern and New Orleans Great Northern Railroads have each won the Cer tificate of Honorable Mention in the E. H. Harriman Memorial Awards for 1930. The American Museum of Safe ty is authorized each year .o award three medals to three Railway Companies of Class 1, having the best safety records during the year. These awards were established by Mrs. Mary W. Harriman, in memory of her husband, Edward H. Harriman. For the purpose of the awards, Class 1 Railways are divided into three groups; determined by the number of locomotive miles opera ted during the year. Group A. comprises the larger roads; Group B, the intermediate sized roads, and Group C, the smaller roads. A gold medal is awarded the lead ing road in Group A, a silver med al that in Group B, a bronze med al that in Group C ; while the cer tificate of Honorable Mention is awarded in each group. The Certificate of Honorable Mention in Group B, was awarded the Gulf, Mobile and Northern Railroad and the Certificate of Honorable Mention in Group C, to the New Orleans Great Northern Railroad. These represent two of the six awards by the committee. The announcement says: "The Gulf, Mobile and Northern Railroad Company ranked second in Group B in 1930. Its total safe ty rating improved 65.7 per cent between 1929 and 1930. No passen gers were killed or injured during the year, and there were no fatalities to either employees or "other persons." For this achievement, that road receives a certificate of Honorable Mention. A similar certificate was awarded to this road in 1928. A Certificate of Honorable Men tion in Group C goes to the New Orleans Great Northern Company, which raised its ranking from fortieth in 1929 to second in 1930. This road had no fatalities in 1930, no injuries of any kind to passen gers, and reduced its non-fatal injuries to employees and "other persons" by 85.5 per cent under 1929. o OUR GOVERNMENT The continued existence of this great republic depends upon the preservation of its system of dual government. No other country up to this time has had such extent of what may be called home terri tory, so large a population or so varied an one, and at the same time such unity of sentiment among the people vis a vis the government, held together not by force but by common interest. Ordinarily, In countries so vast there Is a central government which makes the rule for all parts, and seeks to enforce this rule up on all the people. This succeeds as long as there is power available for maintaining the government. Eventually It fails, as Rome fail ed and as the British empire i s now disintegrating into many practically Independent dominions. With us. on the contrary, we have both the necessary amount of central control and a wise provis ion of home rule. In this way, the people as far removed as the Cali-fornlans from the center have their wishes considered In matters local to themselves, while -yet bound to obey the general laws, made by the federal congress, m which body they have proportionate representation with the rest of the people. There Is ft school of thinkers who say that we need more centralization and more power and .inthorltv In the central govern ment, and some even say It would be good thing to have ft dictator ship to rule so great ft country. Doth are vitally mistaken. No central government and no dictator -an be wise enough to rule satis factorily upon the manifold prob lems that present themselves lo cally. It Is oulte Impossible to nnke the local Interests of all the people hnrmonl?e. We cannot get Michiganders and Alabamlans to think the some way In all things c.'iset.l!y In regard to their local roncerna. As long as both are free to think as they please, they are tontrnt. for, even If they think un- Abelv. they rccocnlze that what results I their own fault, and not Ihat of ome distant, dictatorial overoment. It la thin feeling f fatr play that hold the attention and the loyal iy nt the American people and make the Union solid without a i)ig Mandin srmy to keep 11 so.

To discontinue all worthless offices. 2. To reduce all salaried officers salaries where they are found to be in excess of a reasonable amount. 3. To place a restriction on cir cuit courts of ten days per annum. 4. Exempt from taxation every resident and include as much as 80 acres of land exempt, and levy a sales tax on all merchandise such as we all use and include patent medicine and luxuries, au-tos, trucks, and tractors. A 2 will create a sinking fund to take care of the amount exempt. The negro and lots of people pay no tax. A sales tax catches all alike. Think about home, the sweetest place we know we can lift the tax burden from it by paying a little every day.

Auto Privilege License $5.00, and to be used on second class roads and bridges. 7.- Rescind the act of law that gives timber companys and land owners a right to post woods. And allow only pasture lands and fields subject to post. There are lots of large bodies of woods land that is owned by syndicate which should not be posted. 8.
