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.

forced him to let go. Then he hit a plant
protruding into the shaft, and this breaking his fall, he
landed at the bottom still conscious. He was taken
to a hospital to ascertain if he had been hurt.

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."
