court clerk, says there issome misap-
prehension as to his being of the

He is within the draft age. and is
classified in Class 5-B. He wishes
the voters to know that when the
time conies to go and the govern-
ment gets to the place where men
in his class can serve that he is
ready and anxious to do so and
that he i( not attempting in any
national administration; in fact he
is a Democratic American, and feels
that these things are right on prin-

himself an American should go his
limit in that direction, and that it
should be without a brassijpnd <<r

L. L. McComb
Owing to the fact that a report is
being circulated in this district to
; the effect that I agreed and promis-
ed a certain party or parties that I
would NOT enter this campaign as
i a candidate for county commission-
er from the second district, I desire
to take this method of correcting
such a report and BRANDING IT
AS ABSOLUTELY WITHOUT
The report is said to have origi-
I nated with J. I). Anderson, but I
I do not believe that it did. I have
known Mr. Anderson for a number
of years and have always found
him to be straight and truthful and
I have the highest regard for his in-

About two weeks before I an-
nounced my candidacy for this|
I office, my opponent came to my
i place and asked me if I was going J
to get in the race. I told him that j
! right at that time I had an awful j
lot of work to do and that I could I
not tell for sure whether I WOULD;
or WOULD NOT. He then stated
that he was considering getting in
the race himself, but that he did
not want to oppose me. I told
him NOT to let that matter standi
in his way. That if he wanted to I
announce his candidacy to do so,
and that if I DECIDED LATER to
ENTER the race I would do so, j
BUT that before I did announce 11
would see him and have a talk with |
After I decided to enter the race,
and before I announced my candi-
dacy. I came to Lexington and saw
my opponent and talked to him and
told him that I had made up my
mind to enter the race for county
commissioner, and asked his opin-
ion on the matter.—as I valued iti
very highly. He told me practi-
cally the Bame thing that I told j

him when he came to me, and that
was not to stay out on his account.
We also agreed to run a good, clean
race, and have no mud-slinging in
our campaign, and I have tried to
be good a9 my word and have not
made any mud slinging campaign.
I have also been informed that
my opponent made the statement
in a certain store in Lexington a
few days ago that HE DID NOT
state that I TOLD HIM I WOULD
NOT enter the race.
I am glad to hear that he made
that statement. It only confirms
my previous statement that my op-
ponents friends are doing more
talking than my opponent is doing.
I am sorry that I have had to
make this statement, but I believe
that my opponent will agree that in
justice to both, himself and myself,
that it should be made. It clears
up a FALSE STATEMENT that is
being circulated by his friends, who
are HONEST in the matter and
BELIEVE that I did make the
above statements to my opponent,
and I believe it will clear a wrong
| impression as to myself.
I have been in this country for a
number of years and am wall
known. Most of the voters know
my qualifications for the ollice of
county commisioner as well as I do.
I solicit your support and will
greatly appreciare it, and if you
elect me your commissioner I frel
sure you will never have cause to
regret it. I will do iny full duty
all the time as best I see it.
Very truly yours,
Candidate for County Commissioner

in a side chamber, as in other types of motors, the
gas is introduced directly over the piston head and
exploded there. There is no waste fuel, no waste
