Anyone living in the town
of Davenport is excluded
from any of these contests.
Prof. Cisco will have
charge of the carrying out
of the program which will
start immediately at 1:30 p,
All exhibits will be left at
the band stand before 1:30
p. m. and will be taken
charge of by some compe-
tant person.
There will be no waits-
no delays- Something will
be doing all the time from
1:30 till evening.
We are preparing to show
you a big time. With the
experience of having had
the Trades Day before, we
feel confident that it will be
a bigger success this time
than ever before.
The band boys have been
hard at work for the last
month and you will be
surprised, on Saturday Oct-
ober 31st if you come and
hear them play.
We are authorized to say that,
until January 1, 1915, cotton at
10 cents a pound will be accept-
ed by Lraughon's College in ex
change for tuition at college or
for a Home Study Course. Jno.
F. Draughon, founder of the
Draughon Colleges and a '•boost-
er" of the buy a-bale movement,
has already shown his faith by
his works: he has paid cash
for one bale. All who have
cotton to sell under the above
proposition should write to
Draughon's Practical Business
College, Oklahoma City, Okla.,
or Nashville, Tenn.
All lovers of music, who failed
to come out to the Woodman
hall on Tuesday night, missed a
rare treat.
The singing and banjo play-
ing of the Lewis Sisters was
well worth the price of admis-
sion. As for the one man
orchestra, we must say that
Bliud Thatcher can make as
much music by himself as many
15-piece orchestras. "The Holy
Ciw" could not be beat.
Bring your hides and furs to
the Davenport New Era office
and get the highest market price

October, 26th, 1914,
Dear Mr. Voter:
You are probably aware of my
candidacy for re relection to the
office of "COURT CLERK" and
if you have had occasion to ob-
serve my manner of handling
the publis business in mv office,
I feel that you are qualified to
express an intelligent opinion as
to my fitness for the place and I
hope that you will advise your
neighbors as to that opinion
whether it is favorable or un-
favorable) to me.
A public official should stand)
or fall up jn his record as such I
ask no greater consideration at
the hands of the voters when
they have heard the truth.
It is impossible to set out in a
letter of reasonable length the
many things that I would like
to call your attention to or im
provements attempted in the
management of this office. I
have seen to it that jurors and
witnesses received one hundred
cents on the dollar for their cer
tificatesof attendance, and that
should be important to the pub-
lic as no other court official in
this county does at this time or
has heretofore protected the
public against unwarranted dis-
counting of court certificates,
and by this practice many dol-
lars have been saved to the
people who earned them. Tne
records of commissioners pro-
ceeding show that I have effect-
ed a substantial reduction in
deputy expense and a compari
son of my first year with the
last year of my predecessor
shows a saving of 25 percent in
bhis item alone. 1 haye install
ed the first system of perma-
nently recording disbursements
from the court fund ever in use
in the county which shows who
received and for what purpose
your money was expended. 1
earned and reported to the
county treasurer every cent the
statutes permitted me to charge
and not one cent earned or col-
lected in the transaction of the
business of this office has been
retained by me or any one acting
for me.
It has been my ambition to
measure up to the full standard
of a competent official during
my first term and as to how
well I have succeeded is for you
to judge, and if you re-elect me,
I will conduct your affairs in
the most pleasant, efficient and
economical manner consistaut
with good business.
Trusting that you will find
it possible to conscientiously
give me your support in the
coming election, tor which
please accept my thanks, I am,
Yours sincerely,
Jas. A. Embry.

The J. W. Graves Lumber Co.
Feeding 23 cows, one bull, 21
steers and 21 heifers silage from
your silo in Davenport.
The first week they ate 23190
lbs , or nearly 12 tons, or about
50 lb-;, a day each. There never
was more perfect silage. There
could not be. The silo has
proven in eyery particular to be
satisfactory. It is a little gem
and just the thing for every be
ginner, be tie rich or poor. If
rich, it gives him some valuable
personal experience before in
vesting in a more permanent
silo. If poor, it will earn for
him the funds for the erection
of a cement silo. When abiding
prosperity shall come to the
south-west, it will come hand in
hand with sure feed crops, the
silo, and livestock.
Bankers and business men
have asked that I give a written
repoi t of the feeding contest and
that you have many thousand
copies printed for distribution,
as all seem satisfied that yours
is the one to give the silo habit
to our farmers. It is cheap. It
is good. It will pay for itself
every time it is filled, which
could be several times each

We must extend our thanks
to C. D. Hill for the nice pump-
kin left at our house one day-
last week.
H G. Rounsavell, one of our
prosperous farmers, came in and
renewed his subscription to the
New Era last Saturday.
i the democratic newspapers tell
what a fine fellow the judge is.
We admit the contention. But
what's the use of keeping a man
perpetually in office? We don't
blame the judge for wanting the
office, for he makes a nice, easy
job of it—has two clerks to do
the teal work, while he sits in
his private office, when court is
not in session, smokes fine Ha-
vanas and reads all the current
literature. While this is a snap
for him, the truth is, he does
not need the office. Over at
Stroud, Judge Jarrett's old
home, they rate him at being
worth between $20,000.00 and
#30,000.00, besides he is a direct-
or and part owner of the First
National Bank of Stroud. Now,
what if some of you taxpayers,
who are forced to borrow money
from the banks, had cause to
sue the judge's bank for usury,
what kind of a decision would
you expect him to hand down?
You don't suppose he would fine
himself, do you? The judge is a
nice fellow, but W. L. Johnson
would make the paople a whole
lot better and fairer judge of the
county court. There are no
bank strings, or strings of any
other kind, on Johnson.—The
Chandler News-Publicist.—Pol.
Next Saturday will be Trades
Day in Davenport, when your
agent, Mr. Davie, invites every
farmer in town to come and
inspect the silo and ensilage.
