For County Clerk.
Under the "Announcement" head appear the names of G. E
Toliver and W. E. Cody, both asking that their claims be con-
sidered in the race for county clerk of Erath county. These
gentlemen are both well and iavorablv know all over the county,

say he has made an efficient officer, courteous and obliging.
He has lived in the county tor many years, always identified
with its interests and people, and has made his name for honesty
and integrity by hard work, and through all the hard times in-
cident to a new and growing country Mr. Cody has done his
part manly and honorably, with no stam upon his character.
While Mr. lohver has never held the office, his admirers sav
he can and will fill the bill. Both are dyed-in-the-wool Demo-

An Tee-Cold Salesman.
The American Grocer tells a story of Jed Scarboro going to a
store to trade. He said, with reference to the salesman: &"The
fellow's manner made me feel as though I was actually impos-
ing on him, and alter several fruitless attempts at getting what 1
went íor, I sneaked out into the sunshine, where the warm snow
lay banked in the streets, determined never to re-enter that mer-
cantile ice-box again—unless I learned that it's salesmen read
and lived up to it's advertisements."
In the Texas & Pacific Coal company's stores the salesman
that acls as though he were doing a favor in waiting on custom-
ers—don't stay long. The company wants every salesman to
be quick, active, agreeable; to wait on customers quickly and
accurately; to attend to their business all the time they are be-
hind the counter; to keep all kind ot goods weighed up that can
be made ready; shelves well filled, counters clean and neat. No
chaffing or monkeying with customers allowed in short, they
mean -to have strict business methods.

Next Wednesday's Kali.
We remarked last, week that the society event of this camp
was the coming ball, booked for next Wednesday night at the
town hall. We reiterate it this week with emphasis. The gen-
tlemen who have the affair in hand, Messrs. Marshall, Britton
and Smith, are lying awake nights studying over schemes by
which they can provide for the enjoyment and comfort of those
who attend, and nothing will be overlooked tending to the ac-
complishment of this end. The musicians, three or four of the
best, under the directorship of Professor Smith, have a pro-
gramme arranged, and are daily rehearsing for the event. For
the enjoyment of those ladies and gentlemen who attend and
cannot'or do not care'to participate in terpsichorean festivities,
comfortable seats and a few tables will be arranged upon the
stage, and you can enjoy a game of cards, dominoes or check-
ers. Your hats and wraps will be cared for; ice-water and fans
will be provided free of cost, and if you wish to enjoy an oyster
supper, served in any style desired, you've onlv to takeyour'best
girl and repair to the residence of Mrs. John Douglas (only
one block away) and you can be accommodated. The proceeds
derived from this latter source will go to swell the Union church
fund, and Mesdames Douglas and Baker are managing it. This,
however, has no connection with the ball.
1 he programmes are to be handsomely gotten up, and will
consist ot twenty-four dances. Phis programme will be strictly
observed during the evening.
And Still They Come—New "Ads."
This week we call your especial attention to our new "ads;"
they keep rolling in, and we must find space for them; the peo-
ple read them, then buy the special brands of goods advertised;
the ad\ ertisers note an increase in their trade, and write us com-
plimentary letter, etc. 1 hose this week to which we especially
direct^your attention are the two page "ads" of the Texas &
Pacific Coal company's stores. These are changed weekly, and
each one contains new surprises for the buying public in' point
oí bargains genuine bargains, and in point of typographical
construction they are simply dandies, and are right in the push
with those in any publication you see.
Anothei ad is that ot the Armour Packing comoany, Kan-
sas Citv. Their Silver Churn Butterine is the speciaf article ad-
vertising, and of this the most experienced housewives speak in
the highest terms.
Another is the card of J. M. Robinson, Norton & Co., of
Louisville, Ky. This firm is one of Louisville's oldest and most
reliable. In this card they call your attention to their "Tiger"
brand of Jeans and Kersey Pants, Overalls and Jackets, the
best made. These articles are handled by the Texas & Pacific
Speaking of advertising, it reminds us of a little incident, in
wrhich a boy was sent out once by his father to sell some pota-
toes. He carried the bag around all day without making a sale,
and on reaching home at night, threw it down with the surly ex-
clamation: "Nobody that I met asked me for potatoes. One
fellow wanted to know what I had in my bag and I told him it
wTas none of his darn business."
T here w as in the same towrn a colored man who w7ent about
bawling at the top of his voice: "Fish! Fish! Fresh fish!"
Shut up that racket, ' said an angry dame at a window.
"You hear me, missy?"
"Hear you! You can be heard a mile away."
"Dat's what I'se a hollerin' for. Fish! Fish! Fresh fish!"
The colored man was an advertiser—and sold his goods!
