SHORT LOCALS
-------

One thousand bushels of oats for sale at W. V. Echols’.

J. O. Burleson will pay cash for young mules and cattle.

P. J. Hutcherson, a prominent business man of Moulton, with his family has moved to our town and has opened the “Speaks Hotel.” He will run it in a first class style.

================ Page 5, Column 2 =================
Special attention is called to the “ad” of A. M. Lee, the grocer. He has a first-class line of groceries and is selling them cheap. Give him a trial.

It is rumored that our fellow townsman James M. Echols will be candidate for the office of Sheriff. Mr. Echols is a good democrat and is well qualified for the office.

Mr. C. T. Burt is announced in the ENQUIRER this week as a candidate for the office of Commissioner of Morgan County. He is a wide-awake business man and a progressive Democrat and if elected will make an excellent officer.

The people of Hartselle are anxious that the dummy line between this place and Decatur he built. Our enterprising citizens will donate lands and lots to it very liberally. Capt. D. S. James and Hon. J. C. Orr propose to donate 40 acres of land each to the enterprise.

In this issue will be found the announcement of Mr. A. W. Stephenson as candidate for re-election to the office of Commissioner of Morgan County. He is a true democrat and is a thoroughgoing business man and we have no doubt will make a good officer as he has already proved by his past official life.

Attention is called to the announcement of Maj. B. F. Bean as a candidate for re-election to the officer of Commissioner of Morgan County. Mr. Bean is a simon-pure Democrat and is a successful business man and if elected will faithfully discharge the duties of the office as he has in the past.

Special attention is called to the announcement of Mr. W. F. Orr in the ENQUIRER as a candidate for re-election to the office of Commissioner of Morgan County. He is well qualified to fill the office for which he asks, as is proven by his official life of the past 12 years. His personal and political life is without a blemish.

By the kindness of Prof. A. A. McGregor we had the pleasure of spending Saturday and Sunday, in company with Misses Etta Morris and Florence Thompson, two of the Prof.’s charming pupils, with our friends Mr. William and Miss Shep Morris, of Cedar Cove. Mr. Will and Miss Shep know how to make young folks enjoy themselves, and may they live long and be bothered by many as jolly crowds. Prof. McGregor guards well the interests of his students, and may nature mete out to him many more years in which to teach young men and women the importance of improving youth.
