To The Republicans of Pulaski County.  I hereby announce myself as a candidate for the office of Tax Commissioner at the primary election, August 6, 1921, subject to your action.  It has been my intention never to ask you again for office, but since my misfortune in getting my left hip dislocated, becoming a cripple for life, I have decided after the suggestion of my many friends living in all parts of the county, to enter the race.  Besides this, I am fully qualified educationally and well equipped from past experience to do you good service and give you satisfaction in the matter of proper assessment of your property.  It will be my aim and purpose if elected to make a complete assessment of all property of the county avoiding omitted property of non-residents and other escaping taxation, leaving the tax payers who are assessed to bear the burden alone; to keep your assessment fair as you make them as given by you as correct, accurate, plain and neat in the proper precinct and save you from being warned to appear before the Board of Supervisors when you have already listed. The law requires that the Tax Commissioner shall keep an office open from the 1st day of July to the 1st of November each year to make assessments.  It is my purpose to help you all I can and for that reason, should I be elected, if you notify me by postal card costing only one cent, giving me your post office and precinct that you are unable to attend the office during said time on account of you rage, sickness, money to pay your expenses to make the trip or any other good or valid reason, I will take pleasure in coming to your home and taking or in having some one to wait on you.  This is a very important office and every tax payer in this county should be interested in seeing that the proper and just assessment.  Avoiding omissions, making accurate books, plain and legible names and figures arranged in a manner so as to be read and understood.  You have trusted me in public office and know I always tried to serve you to reward you for the trust reposed.  Thanking for all things you have done for me, feeling it will be probably the last time I shall ever ask you again for your support for office, trusting I shall have the same, I am Yours Truly, N.L. Barnett.

Candidate for "What's Left" Promises Opponent "Darndest Race" of Life. 
Barbourville, - H.L. Taylor published this announcement of his candidacy: "I am a candidate for what is left of the office of circuit court clerk on the Republican ticket.  This office pays no salary unless you can stick your unfortunate fellowman who is compelled to come into court.  I am qualified for said office.  I can run a typewriter and I will not be compelled to skin my unfortunate fellowman.  I have killed lizards on the old rail fence, chased butterflies and grasshoppers, and humming birds and June bugs.  I have heard the hoot owl hoot, the screech owl screech, the fox bark in the high cliffs and the cricket sing under the old rock hearth, and I have split rails and dogwood gluts and swung the hickory maul.  I have no opponent yet, but if I have one, just bet that I'll give him the darndest race he ever had."
