Tue Chief reporters have managed
to pick up the following names of
prominent centlemen of Webster
county, who have been mentioned for
the various offices in the gift of the
people. First among the list we will
mention the name of
who is well known in Webster county
and who has filled the office of sheriff
with credit to himself and honor to
the county. In fact Henry Scott is
one of the best sheriffs the county
has ever had. a perfect gentleman and
a man whose position does sot make
him feel above the common people.
No one can say naught of him, ex
cept it be that he is always true to a
friend, has a heart in him as big as a
barrel, and yet, a man who no one
can use for mercenary purposes. He
will no doubt receive the nomination
for another term.

for the office of sheriff. Mr. Grice
is an old citizen of Webster county,
and if he should receive the nomina
tion would no doubt make a good

er, Thad. Arnold and I. B. Hampton
