Teachers, parents, students and county organizations are showing keen interest in this campaign.

Alaurice Todd on Wed- Provcrbs 20-1 "Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging; and whosoever is deceived theteby is not wise. Have we not been deceived? Can we as conscientious voters afford to vote for men who arc in favor of alcoholic liquors? Can we send men to our county scat to legislate laws for our county who arc not only in favor of alcoholic drinks but drink and sell the same? God says "Woe be unto the man who puts his bottle to his neighbor's lips". If we vote for men who are interested in the use and sale of alcoholic liquors, are we not putting our endorsement, to it? If our Presidents, Representatives, Senators, Legislators and Sheriffs are in favor of these things, where will there be any restrictions? It will pay us to look before we leap. Alcohol affects the mind, causes men to err in judgment, shortens the life. Are not oun prisons and penitentiaries filled to their capacity with young nnd old who have indulged in alcoholic liquors and other narcotics? Can we stand by unconcerned when our children are being killed on the highways, locked behind, prison bars, sent to some house for the insane or see them turn out to be drunkards and vagabonds? Can we prosper as county, state and nation by/ drinking poison or by voting for those who do?
