on the Progressive Republican Ticket at the
Primaries, September 7, 1926
I was born in Outagamie county 48 years ago. I am a
high school graduate and well qualified to fill the office of
sheriff. I have always been a Progressive Republican and
shall continue to work for the principals of this party.
I am a married man and have six children. For many
years resided in Wisconsin Rapids and Marshfield. Past
nine years have been a resident of Marathon county, having
conducted successfullly a hotel at Rozellville for two years
and past seven years a groceery and hotel business in the
village of Stratford.
My wide acquaintance and business experience will
enable me to properly, honestly and efficiently perform the
duties of the office of SHERIFF.
I solicit your support.
Arthur A. Bever
