Hurrah for our editor of The Chronicle, who is trying to show the citizens of our county what the candidates to be elected this fall stand for. We surely need more gentlemen like him in our county. Since the head of the road commission in our county was changed our roads have been in a bad condition. The brush has grown up bad along our roads. I have lived in this vicinity for six year and in that time the brush has never been cut.

Editor's Note. - We sincerely appreciate the kind words of the Daniels Run correspondent. It is things of this kind that make us feel that we are accomplishing something worth while in our effort to clean the county of its rotteness in politics.
