busy mass or the world and far removed from any of Its great centers- of thought and action As yet It seem that no one has un dertaken to write anything of the life or this well knowncitizen and lawyer There la much that might be written Certainly the story of the 82 years ot life of one whose talents and Industry distinguished him among his fellows can not be told In the limits ot a brief article So much must be omitted Hon Joseph Eo Hays wasp born in Russell county Ky December61822 He was the son of Gabriel Hays and Martha Coffey flays who came here from Virginia some years before RuS- sell county was created and when this section was mostly a wilderness ills paternal grandmother was Jane Moore Quigly of London England while hIs maternal grandmother was Jennie Wltherspoon a member of a distinguIshed North Carolina family Both of these grandparents were cul tured and Intellectual women and the grandson either inherited or early de veloped a burning desire for an educa that day schools and teachers Were few and far between butJhe tiny who really means to edntatebithself and accomplish something In t h e world keeps saying to himself where theres a will theres a way And the boy Joseph E Hays found away though oftentimes It was tar from being an easyone By a flrellght made or boards and dry sticks te learn ed to read ot evenings after the days work was over It was

1904 To The Public It is with pleasure that we present this issue fresh from a new press an attainment we have long sought but have been prevented by reason of the many interested in the stock of the company who were not willing to put up more money Recently we purchas ed the bulk of the stock andimmediate ly set out to put in a firstclass office and without flattering our efforts we feel safe in saying that The News office is as good as thoroughly equipped as any country office in the State Our business room is elegantly located on fustfloorin the Tntt block well lighted and ventilated having been remoddled throughout A press and engine room built in the rear which holds the rack et of a gasoline engine away from the streets After looking up the merits of two or three makes of drum

as we see it Move up get out of the old ruts build your town improve your county and better your State are doctrines we preach and so far as we can are willing to practice Beleving that this part of the State should have a firstclass printing office and that such an enterprise would be sustained we have took the initiory step and from the many who have vis ited our new quarters and given words of encouragement we feel that no mis take has been made We tender our thanks to the many who have stood by us in the trials of the past and trust that our expenditures our equippments and our efforts will increase their zeal- and add many more to the list If you want to see a fine press and folder doing the work call on the News whether you area subscriber or note Mr JTames Pjggot of Chicago is
