Coleman has been asleep to’
these ma»iy years, It appears it
is now time to awake from its
lethargy. The election is close
at *iand and it is as well for usto
con the situation. Brown county
has the Senator, Representative,
District Judge and District At-
torney. Senator Grinnan has
held the sentorship for 10 years,
prior to that Erath and Comman-
che counties held the senatorship.
It appears to us now is the timr.
for Coleman county to assert her •
self and nominate a citizen for
that office. It has been men-
tioned to us by some of our 1 eas-
ing citizens that J. 0. Wood wstrd
would be a very suitable man for
the office. He needs no* intro-
duction from us and if elected
would dignify the office. Judge
Jenkins has Reclined to run
again for representative and we
have good timber here in Cole-
man. Citizens put o:n your
thinking caps and brii ng some
good man out, and let Coleman
county send one or 'nor e of her
citizens to Austin., j
