Owing to the immense crowd'that had gathered from all parts of this trade territory to hearths "Dough Boys", the program was conducted in the street from fhe top of their own truck, which was equipped with loud speakers. The program continued for al- most an hour, during which time the traffic was blocked on the main business street.

The greater part of this special pur- chase of flour was disposed of be. fore the arrival bf the Dough Boys, and a large quantity was sold during the day Satprday; "Ms" Ferguson Again Enjoys Big Lead In The Lignite City Box As in days of old "Ma" and Jim proved to be the favorite candidates for the office of Gov- ernor in both the Malakoff box and in the total vote of Hender. son County.
