The publisher of The Democrat
will cheerfully admit that the issue of
this week i* not up to the standard, in
fact is ratheriirM in some respects.
But we are sure that < u readers will
overlook the short-coming when we
explain the cair-e, an more, cheerfully
extend their forgivew ss. By the
time the paper is in the hands of some
of our readers, the publisher will have
take.i the most impoHant step in his
life. While you are reading this he
will be taking unto himself a helpmeet
in other words, he will be promising
to cherish and support a wife. With
such an important matter- on hand,
from which he could not .handily be
absent, he has been compelled to
slight his first love "The Democrat"
for a time. However we promise to
get back to work immediately and
with the increased incentive, to make
The Democrat better than ever.

Democrat will not be raised.
