Henry S. Bradford, alderman from the second ward in the city of Huntsville and whose announcement for re-election has been published in The Daily Times for the past ten days, has withdrawn from the race. Mr. Bradford came in person to the office of The Daily Times this morning and authorized the withdrawal of his name from the race. Mr. Bradford’s withdrawal card appears elsewhere in the Daily Times, same having been prompted, according to Mr. Bradford, thru a misunderstanding that has been developed from a source chargeable to no one but himself.
President Buchanan of A. & M. College at Normal Not Leave Now
The Daily Times is authorized to state that there will be no vacancy in the presidency of the State A. & M. College, at Normal, for the present as President Walter S. Buchanan has deferred his resignation on the urgent request of the State Board of Education. This will be good news to all friends of this splendid institution that has done excellent work in the education and training of the youth of the negro race, not only in the state, but thru out the south. A very flattering position has been tendered President Buchanan to take the editorship of a publication at Pittsburg, Pa., at a salary more than double what the state has felt able to pay him at Normal. With a growing family and the high cost of living it can be seen how difficult it would be to refuse the offer made him. And it was with the deepest regrets he felt impelled, from necessity to accept. It would be a great loss to the school as well as the negro race of the south for him to leave, and it is sincerely hoped the state board of education will be able to see its way to make his salary such that will justify his recall of his resignation and continue the great work he is doing at Normal for his race and our southland. He is an intelligent and wise leader among his people, and stands for clean honest living and the best things of life for his race.

“The Courage of Marge O”Doone”
She fled from this man and ran into the arms of another. Did the second man carry her back to the infernal hole from which she escaped? Did he force her to face her enemies and again fight her way to freedom? He did.
And the events that followed are of a caliber that will long make you remember.
WANTED to buy all your wheat that is clear of onions, delivered at my mill between New Market and Deposit, Ala., or delivered in Huntsville. S. L. Cobb, Phone No. 394-W and Phone No. 429, Huntsville, Ala. 5-7t.
