He olaima that ho can not be held responsible for evils, if any,, of the commissioners, nor is ho ntited to any o red it for the good. He haoa Republican on his right nd a Republican on bis left, and the 'two are tho majority and necea-Mrily entitles for credit lor all the good or evil work done. Mr. Wey-mueller's reoprd speaks for itselt nd be Invites, inspection. Fred Weymneller was born in -Wurtenburg. Germany, in the year 1847. At tho age of near 17, in 1806, he came to America and looa-,ted lu Zinesvllle, Ohio. He secured a position In theB. and O. railroad shops, whore he worked faith-folly and honestly to the satisfac tion of the company and to the .credit of himself.

In 1878 "$e was struck by an engine and sustained a broken thigh, which laid Jilra up for a year and porraennntly disabled him. Curing this distress he was taken charge of aud provided for liv his brother minora, aud everything that hoart could wish war provided bira. Durum tlie'81-,SS strike be earned -tliacaail from Nelsonvillo to Murray Citv. In 1908 he moved to Logan, whuro he .still resides. During his employment in the mines he was several .times elected president of a local, has represented the miners in national, state and district conventions. He is a member of tho Nel-sonville .lodge ot Odd Fellows and is at present one of the trustees. He represents the order in the Nel-apnville foundry and machine shops. The stockholders eleoted him one of its directors, whioh important position he still oooupies. When it a considered that this company invoiced $76, 710." 17 the importance of hia position is bettor realised. When Fred Weyrnueller came to America be oould scarcely make himself understood, had not a friend cot a relativo, no one to go to in distress, for assistance, but bo depended npon the American fair play and by his persistent and determined efforts has succeed in procuring a little borne and a fortune nffiotont for the needs of himself nd bis loyal and faithful wife. Ho earned it all by the hardest kind of work and by the honest and faithful disoharge of his duties. In bis official oapaoity he has been fair, honest, faithful; he baa been .careful and economical in the expenditure of publio money; oheer-ful, jolly, accomodating. Ho is entitled to your vote, and deaervea it. Give this worthy man ypur sup,-port, he needa it, is entitled to it, and deserves your fair treatment. Late Beery ot Benton township, la our candidate for Infirmary Director. Almost every citizen in ,thta county knows Lafe Beery. (He ,ii in the prime of life, aetive, ener-getio; oareful, economical aud thoroughly oompetent for the position to whioh he aspires. Lafe Beory ia especially strong In the west end' and will draw a large vote from the Republican columns. In Logan be is very popular and will get a rousr ing ,voie nere, ana wo ao not neneve he will reoeive a single aoratob in hp.oounty, Hm kind, even dispo sition raako him especially fitted for infirmary dircotor. Ho has a common school od'toation, ia honest and industrious, a gonial, whole souled man, a gentleman in every place and evory prosenco and will bo elected by a rousing majority. Ho was forced into tho race by the best men in our party, from all parta of the county, and aooepied tho nomination as a matter of party duty and publio good. This office seeks Lafo Beory, and will get hira, and the county will got a good and efficient ofiioer. Lafo Beery has earned his little iarm by tho hardest kind of knooks, ho grubbed and hoed and plowod and reaped, and ia today ono of tho bert thought of men in tho county. He will be elected bocauso ho is fitted, is deaorving, Vote for him. James Redout, our oandidato for surveyor, is a Marion township boy, a genial gentleman, and competent, capablo surveyor and a rock-rihbod Democrat. Ho is placed on our lickot beaause hu is a man well qual ified to fill the position. He is graduate of alio Athens University, mndo a special study of tho branches that especially quality him for tho office of county surveyor, and ia very careful and prudent man. He is always a gentleman and is dosor ving. His opponent, Eph Shaw, has bad several whirls at tho office, never landed. lie tried it on the Democratic ticket and failed. Ho then tackled it from a Republican standpoint and was given the nomi nation over Silver Bill Gaffnoy. It was a fight between two Democrats for a Republican crabapple, and Eph got there. When Mr. Bebout gets through with Mr. Shaw, Mr. Shaw will not be able to survey his way out of an open town lot. Vote for Bebout, A vote for Bebout is a voto for a aompeteut, able and do serving man. Tho great hue and cry of Allen R. McBroora's political enemies, and especially that jealous trio of "four flushers," of "just wait until the Circuit Court convenes and you'll seo what they'll do to MoBroorn," has went up in smoke. Consider ing that theso "threo graces" had nineteen oharges against him and that "any one of those was suffi cient to disbar him," and that the oourt was of tho opinion that Allen bad not violated any of the lawa of Ohio, ia conclusive ovidonce that even these three great legal minds may err. Their unprofessional and uncharitablo efforts to injure bim has only addod to hia strength, and may be construed bv even their friends aa discourtooua and unpro fessional, a bit of professional jealousy, and convinces the tax payers that now is a good time to "lot well enough alone," Tho political fungus growth that has been fastened upon the people of this tiounty by the boodle ring can only be removed by heroic treatment. It has beoomo so rot ten that a poultice will do no good, but an ax or corn cutter will do the business. The defeat of a single candidate on the so called Repuhli can ticket will not abash tho boo dlors but the defeat of the whole bunoh will forever kill the practioo that ia degrading and demoralizing our people. Voto the straight Dem-ooratio ticket. "There are thousands upon thousands of Republicans in Ohio who will not support Mr. Horriok," saya the Sandusky Register, one of tho ablest and most prominont Re publican papers in the state. It de-olareB that "if half the reports 'Which are given out in tho news papers from time to time about tho condition of things in the various countiea of the statu aro true, Mr. Herrick will lose 100,000 Republi can votes at least in tho state." You might possibly get a man equally us competent as George THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1905 Williamson for sheriff, but it is simply impossible to find a better ono in this county. Ho has about him all the elements that ia necessary to mako a man, a good, man. Hu Ih a deseaving man, a good citizen and ia entitled to your support. Ho will bo the next sheriff. Our senatorial ticket is a good ono, good men, honest men, statesmen, just such men aa Bos Cox don't want, A voto for tho Repub lican senators and the Republican representative is threo votes for Boss Cox for United Slates Senator. Boar this in miud Mr. Voter. There is no question as to the honesty, ability and Democracy of -Tames Bebout. He will plant Eph Shaw and his ''flold notes" so deep in tho political gravoyard that the sound of Gabriel's horn will novor reach him. It will bo Surveyor Bebout. Allen R. MoBroorn has no peer asalawyonn Southern Ohio and his election as Prosecuting Attorney moans tho saving of hundreds of dollars to tho tax payers. Judge Martin has mado an able probato Judgo and should be re-elected. Tho good people ot tho court-ty aro back of Frank Martin and will boo that he is olected. Tho wholo Democratic tickot from top to bottom nro good moiij oarned their nomination by fair and squaro contest. Tberoaro no bosses; in tho Democratic party. Boss Cox docs not want mon liko John C. Pettit elected to tho state legislature becauso it means tho defeat of hia schema to steal tbe canals of tho state Everybod y knows that Lafo, Beerv is as honest a tho day ia long und that ho would attend to the interests of the county if olected Infirmary Director. You can't Kill a enake by striking it on tho tail. Hit the boodle .on tho head and kill tho roptilo that Is dobai-ing tho citizenship of Hocking county. Fred Weymuollor U an honorable experienced business man and would bring ability of a higli order to tbe Board of County Commissioners. The New Auditor. The now auditor began bia second term last Monday. Jimmy Martin is an all around good fellow and has mado a good officer.

Mr. Sam Longly of Nolsonville, who umpired the ball gamo between Logan and Nelsonvillo last Sunday, has won muoh comment for IiIb fair and squaro decisions.

About tho only dead gamo sport ,to be found that was ablo bodied onough to oirry gamo, was Luther Polmg, and ho drafted hira into tho service.

Sol did as requested, and by tho tinio John had his gun and shells in readiness Luther appeared in front with tho Tin. It did. not take them long to reach good hunting grounds. As tho air was cool it was thought that it would bo a good idea to take a littlo of the proventa-tivoj -to be on tho safe side, and warm up their blood, besides who knew but what they'd step right Into a nest ot copperheads. So thoy touched up tho preventative pretty freely and Btepped fearlessly into tho rabbit grounds. John had good luck, bagged 7 or 8 bunnies m aa many minutes, never missing a shot. Ho had ins hunting blouso about as full a was convenient to carry and concluded to get one moro and suit for home. It no more than a iniuuto before up jumped a bunnlo ns big as a Newfoundland dog. Ring, went the gun aud down carao the cotton tail, Kicking and struggling- John stalled to pick it up and kicked up another. Ho told Luther to fasten on the struggling bunuio while lio'd try for the other one. Ho misted the last shot, turned around, picked up tho bia buunie and uiammcd it in lus blouse, Ho turned urouud for Luthor, and ho was now hero to be found. Ho hunted and hunted and hunted, but could (iud no trace of him whatever, and concluded lie had ooiuo to town, so ho jumped in the bufgy and drove home. ,,It was just dusk when ho dropped into tho bar rind throw his blousa down on the counter, inquiring ol Sol if ho had seen Luther, telling him he had lost In in on the hunting grounds and presumed ho had come home, but anyhow ho lud tho big-gent rabbit that had over been killed in Hooking county, Sol began to drag out the bunnios one at a time, and finally came to tho big ono, Hu made a grab and caught hold of cowhide brogans. "Why, John," said Sol, "this rabbit has on overalls!" Another Sam Patcli drag and out came Luthor, all covered with rabbit fur, sputtering and spitting bunches of tur and burrs from his mouth, Bat up ou the counter, nibbed bia eyes and said, '-I think I Hiii oil a copporhoad, givo mo some more of that preventative." In John's excitement ovor missing his last shot, and being in hasto to get home, bo reached down and grabbed up Luthor by tho left hind leg and crammed him into tho hunting jacket, instead of the big rabbit.
