Of And For Stonewall County
Aspermont, Texas, Thursday, July 26th. 1928
To The Voters of Com-
missioner's Prect. No. 3
Rain! Rain! Rain!
1 have tried to visit most every
home and solicit their vote but have
failed to meet some in person.
I don't want anyone to think that
I meant to ignore or slight them, in
case I fail to sea them, for 1 appre
ciate all the help and support extend-
ed my way.
W. J. Patterson
James A. Stephens
We, the voters of Stonewall Co., we
think should support James A Steph-
ens of Knox County for Associate
Justice of the court of Civil Appeals.
He is a good lawyer and well quali-
fied and has lived in Knox Co. nearly
40 years. The court is composed of
three judges and this part of the dis-
trict should be represented on the
court. The court is located at East-
land but that is no reason why that
all the judges should be elected from
that end of the district.

ily of Vernon, Texas are visiting their
parents, Mrs. M. M. Osborn and Mr.

We, the undersigned dealers in Gas-
oline and Oils, in the city of Asper-
