  Political Bugs and Potato Bugs Buzzing Busyly(?sic)
  For the past two weeks in this community has been i na uproar over politics and the end is not yet. All during this time every time the phone rang some one would answer it, thinking they would hear something about the conventions. But nothing definite has been learned yet. It is rumored around here that Mr Taft was nominated some where last week and that the Democrats were having a convention some place else this week. This isn't what keeps up the excitement, though. There is to be a primary convention at Markwood's School House Sat that will be of far more interest to the folks hereabouts than the conventions that take place farther away.
  This convention will convene at 1:30 PM and unless there is a dead lock will in all probability get through some time that afternoon. Delegates will be selected to attend the county convention, which will be held at the county seat July 20th. This part of it is not causing much loss of sleep, but the district officer proposition is what's keeping the folks awake. There will be a Justice of the Peace, constable, school commissioner, and most important of all, two agents for the Twin Mountain and Pacific RR nominated. These are the officials over which the fight will occur.
  The railroad being here now we need a good justice and constable. Sun excursions filled to overflowing with sin ladened sinners from the county seat will be here and unless we have a Justice and Constable there will be much disorder.
  There will be two against nominated, as mentioned above, one to serve at Burlington and the other at Ridgeville. This is a good very important office and good men must be selected.
  There are five regular candidates and seven dark horses aspiring for the nomination. In case any of them threaten to bolt another station will be opened up at Fleatown and three candidates be put in the field.
  There is all indications, so far as can be seen now, for a Democratic victory in this district. The Republicans haven't a ticket in the field and unless a third party starts up they will win in a walk, providing a re-actionary doesn't set in.
  The Camp Meeting bees have begun to buzz and will swarm on Aug 19th prevailing Providence preventing not. About the usual number of preachers will be on the ground to look after the spiritual and temporal welfare of the campers. The temporal welfare bids fair to be better than usual. The recent rains have brought forth a wonderful crop of vegetables and the chickens are looking better than they have at this time, for ten years. The same rules and regulations will be in force but will be published again for the benefit of new comers.
  These long yellow striped bugs lit in on the cucumbers last week and nearly cleaned up the crop before the folks found out how to handle them. Rev John Jerebum Jones invented the exterminating system which did the work. It is very simple. All you have to do is to gather two bugs form each hill of vines, being sure to keep them separate. Number the vine hills and the bugs from each hill. You will now have double the amount of bugs than you have hills of vines. Take the bug and paint its back black. Now get some yellow paint and strip the bugs back just opposite from the way nature did it. this is right tedious but it is the answer. After all have been striped turn them loose on the vine again and the other bugs will be so surprised to see the stripes running the wrong way, that they will all leave. Try it.
