Quo cross in the llrat circle nt the head of the ballot will vote for nil ro- pnblican candidates , etato , congrosslon- nl , legislative , county and precinct. It is so simple that nil can undorstaud ant no mistake need bo made. To vote the republican ticket nil that is nccosMiry is to nmko ouo cross in the circla nt the top of the ballot and the vote is complete. It is very simple nnd cau bo quickly nnd onslly accomplished nud the ictmlt desired by ix majority of the people will hnvo boon attained. Ohris Schmitt , cnudidnto for com missioner in the Firbt district is before the pcop o of that district for nu on- ilorsoinout. Ho has given thorn faith ful Borvico nnd satisfactory to the people of the entire county nnd deserves re flection. His election should bo by n good , ronnd'innjority. F. L. Putney , republican candidate for representative , has had previous legislative expreienoe that should prove of value at the coming session of the legislature , nnd will well represent the people to the county. Ho has a large following in JoiTerson precinct who are supporting him with vigor and would feel it au honor if their candidate is given the support of the republicans of the county. Dr. J. M.

Mr. Thompson deriles that he is a railroad attorney or that ho tiae in recent years transacted any legal busi ness for them.

Ho dare not deny It. He is try- < ng to rldo into office under false pretenses. PopullBt farmes , what do you think of this man ?
