Still In The Race
I take this means of informing the
voters of Cleveland county that I
am still in the race for Court Clerk
and in to win. It has been rumored
by some of my opponents or some
one interested in some of them that
I had withdrwn. but it is false. If
I had withdrawn I surely would
have published it so my friends
could have picked another man.
It has been impossible for me to
see every one of the voters but I
earnestly solicit their support just
the same and I will appreciate it if
you can give it to me.
Joe Higbee. I

Daughter,'' he said, calling the
girl to his side. No one on earth is
more interested in you than your
old 11-*d. No one quicker to rise in
your' defense. But listen. This
very interest has led me to study
you,and this is what I have learned:
V ou go down the street very
scantily dressed, ^lou deliberately
expose as much of vour person as is
necessary to appeal to the carnal
instinct in man Vour lovely neck,
a large portion of your well devel-
oped breast, your arms and—by
means of a slit skirt transparent
hose—a goodly share of your lower
limbs are expsed to view. The
portion of vour body that is covered
is clothed in such a way that every
curve and angle is brought out in
Then, when you pass a man,or a
group of men,you giggle 'toss your
head and perhaps remark to your
girl companion that this town is the
slowest old town you ever saw. And
if some man accepts your challenge
you want him shot.
^Not long ago I was in a town
and wanted a glass of beer I came
to a big building.along the side of
which, in big black letters was the
word, saloon. I stepped inside to
find that it was some other line of
business,but one which is often run
in connection with a saloon. I
called for a glass of beer and the
proprietor seemed in doubt as to
whether he should shoot me,kick me
into the street or call the police.
Daughter, I was a stranger in
that town. 1 didn t know that
man or his business. I merely
was guided.or in this case misguided
by this sign. The man who ac-
costed you is a stranges here, and
daughter, as I said before, I have
studied you and your ways.'

Your Business Here
Business deals of almost every nature eventually in-
volve a bank transaction and the officers and employees
realize the obligation resting upon them to keep such trans-
actions to themselves, quite as much as the lawyer or doctor
does the safe guarding of their clients and patients.
It is an unwritten law of this bank that all business
of whatever form intrusted to it shall be a closed book ex-
cept to those vitally interested. You can depend upon this
