political discussion and solicitation Nay verily As soon as the people have ceased talking of the election of this year they will have theirattention called to that of 1001 Some candidates are al ready out for the election of next November and within a few months they will be as abundant as blackberries in season Committee meetings will be discussed the calling of conventlonsor r the ordering of primary elections will be hotly debated In due time nomina tions will be made and we shall again be in the midst of a hot political cam paign To be sure there will be no President or Congressman to elect but the excitement over the choice of local officers is often greaterJhough in narga rower limits than that which attends the election of officers by large masses of voters Moreover within a month Congress will be In session a ain Though it is e short session which affords rather r limited tithe for Important legislation it is not improbable that it will be marked by the passage of some impor tant bills which the majority were afraid to enact before the election The records of Congress will show that the short sessions have been by no means barren of legislation of the first impor

traordinary temperament for while by no means a shining example of manhood he is a great stickler for forms in religious worship This peculiar characteristic waSevidenced last week by an occurrence of a highly sensational nature There had for some time been a protracted meeting in progress in the neighborhood and Garfield had been heard to remark that 1they were not running the ddthing to suit him He accordingly resolved to show his contempt for the proceedings in a truly novel manner To this end he roamed over the hills and through the valleys of the locality and succeeded in capturing two cow snakes each about a yard long On Thursday night he hied himself to the church The preacher was at his best that night and the sermon he delivered had the desired effect on quite a number of the unrighteous who when penitents were called for went up to the mourners bench A number of young ladles and Garfield Williams isesome question as to whether Garfield could with propriety be called a pent earnestaprayers and when the mourners suddenly arose shouting the preacher was rejoiced believing they had found what they were seeking But later the cause of the demonstration became apparent Garfield Williams had turned loose his two cowsnake The young man was arrested and brought to this city Friday night Judge Duffy heard the case and decided that Garfields fun was worth 850 and a twenty days sojourn with Jailer Grumbley And the meeting at Pea Ridge is going on in the same way notwithstanding Garfields earnest effort to introduce a few innova tions Elkton Times A Village

rather more apt than other men to leave widows and or phansNow this war ended in 1838 or 39 but the soldier in question died only two W three years ago leaving a young widow to the care of the
