Dear Sir :
You may say to the people of your
town that I will be on hand at an
early date to begin work on putting
in steam laundry.
Yours for business,

Big Tent Coming.
The money has been raised by
local subscription for purchasing a
large tent, costing $500, to be used
in the campmeeting which is to take
place here this summer. Also there
have been ordered a number of
smaller tents to accommodate the
visitors from a distance.
Orders were placed this week with
the Brand for advertising matter
and a united effort will be put forth
to make this the Panhandle's most
attractive features this season.
Who Can Vote.
It seems to be a question in the
minds of some as to who will be a
qualified voter in the approaching
primary election. For the benefit
of those who have doubts along this
line, we will say that one who will
be entitled to vote in the general
election in November can also vote
In the primary, notwithstanding the
fact that he has not been in the
state and county the required time
at the time the primaries are held.
The only requirement is that he
shall be a qualified voter at the time
