    TO THE DEMOCRATIC VOTERS OF MARION AND VICINITY

     

    To the Democratic voters and to my friends of the 5 Marion Voting Precincts, I take this method of announcing my candidacy for the Office of Postmaster at the Marion Post Office and humbly ask you as a friend and one of you to please consider my candidacy and extend to me your support and influence according to your confidence in my worthiness.

     

    I fully appreciate the fact that I am asking a great deal of you in asking for your support for this office and especially at this time when many of you doubtless have other friends that would like to have your help and under other conditions I would not want or try to presume on your friendship, but being disabled from doing farm work or any other kind of manual labor, I am forced to hunt some other kind of work to make a living for myself and family and beg to assure you that no one would appreciate your support or try harder to prove himself worthy of the trust than I and if you see fit to elect me as your choice for this office, I promise you that my appreciation shall be proven by a faithful performance of the service you demand.

     

    --M. O. ESKEW.

    BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION AND FAMILY REUNION

    Grand Family Dinner in Honor of Mrs. Sarah Elder's 68th Birthday.

     

    Sunday, Aug., 10th 1913, will long be remembered as one of the pleasantest days in the memory of Mrs. Sarah Elder, and her descendants, most of whom met by appointment at her home on the date named to give her a birthday dinner. Mrs. Elder was born Aug., 10th, 1845, and was therefore 68 years of age. The members of the family who were present were the following:

     

    Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Berio, Mr. and Mrs. A. G. Hopgood, of Sturgis, Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Elder, Mr. A. L. Elder and little daughter, Alberta, of Fredonia.

     

    Other guests were:

     

    Mr. and Mrs. John Vaughn and daughter, Atrel, of Fords Ferry, Mr. and Mrs. Smith Newcom, of Sullivan, Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Eskew, Mrs. J. E. Sullenger and daughters, Leota and Katie, Mr. and Mrs. Will Patterson and daughter, Louise of Marion, Messrs. Earl, Glenn and Chas. Sullenger.

     

    Each one of her children brought a basket well filled with dainties and substantials all well prepared, "just like mother used to make," which is enough said, for everything was there in abundance and each one enjoyed the spread. Everything was arranged to suit the occasion and a delightful day was enjoyed by all. After spending several pleasant hours together, all departed to their respective homes wishing mother many happy returns of the day.

     

    Mrs. Elder received many memories, all of which she prized very highly.

     

    Mrs. Elder's host of friends wish her many more happy birthday celebrations.
