CASS COUNTY'S POLITICAL CANDIDATES. (Cont'd)
J. D. PETERSON, THE FARMERS'
At the urgent solicitation of representative men from every section of the county, Mr. Peterson offers his name as a candidate for nomination for the office of representative, subject to the action of the republican primary in June.|
He is a man eminently qualified to fill this responsible position. Mr. Peterson is the son of an old Adams county farmer, and has resided in Cass county since 1878. He is a breeder of Shorthorn cattle and has taken many prizes at the local fair.
For the past fifteen years Mr. Peterson has been superintendent of Sunday schools with the church he affiliates with, at one time being President of Cass County Sunday School Association. In 1880 he was married to Miss Mary J. Berry, daughter of the well known J. W. Berry of Marne. Mr. Peterson begs to assure the republicans if they confer this nomination upon him and he is elected he will ever be mindful of and faithful to the interests of his constituency, and in all cases consult them before voting upon any important measure.
He has always been a republican,consistent, unswerving and conscientious.
In the circles where he is known the word of J. D. Peterson is accepted as being as good as a bond, and he is esteemed on all sides as one of the county's most useful citizens.
