A rtotice of Judge Junius Hancock's candidacy for the office of County Judge of Adair county, subject to the action of the Republican party, has been expected to appear in the News for several weeks, and this week his many friends will not be disappointed as it can be found under the proper heading. Judge Hancock Is a gentleman who does not need an introductoin to the voters of Adair county. When a young man he served the county for.two terms as circuit court clerk, making a very efficient officer, and later he served the county two terms as its County Judge. In the capacity of this last named office, his official acts met the approval of the citizenship of the county. He was watchful and at the same time he conducted the office with ability, It is an advantage for a County Judge to understand the law. In fact he should be well informed upon this subject. A good many years ago Judge Hancock read and studied law and was licensed to practice. He has nob been an active practionerer, but in drawing up legal papers, he is at home. It is now about three months until the primary. The time intervening will be put in by the Judge in seeing his friends throughout the county. In the meantime he asks that his candidacy be given the widest publicity. Every thing done in hl! ifltP.rpQt. will ha rtnlo nnnrn- "... w V..J .(,,. i,"ciated, and he promises, that should he be nominated and elected, to make a just and impartial Judge.

Platts-bufg,-New There is much talk just now about the high prjce'of flour, and the most reliable reason for it is, the speculators are cornering the wheat, and many of them are engaged fh buying up the flour in ten and twenty thousand pound lots. In- - that way the t. consumer is forced to pay enormous prices for bread stuff,. This is a 'mat-- , ter that should be investigated, for there is absolutely no good reason for flour to be as high as at the present The home mills here cannot get wheat sufficient to supply local demands. A man wlio will buy wheat and flour at this time for the purpose of speculation is almost heartless. At a regular meeting of the Adair County Medical Society, held in the office of Dr. Cartwright, on Wednesday the 18th day of April, 1917, The high cost of living covering as it does food and foodstuffs, clothing, vehicles, drugs and in fact everything used by physicians in their daily work, is such that the fees charged a few years ago will not enable the physicians to keep themselves prepared to meet the exacting demands of the public.
