CAME AT CAMPBELLSYLLE Last Saturday between the hours of nine and ten oclock am the announcement of the sudden death of Mr C H Murrell cast a gloom over our entire town and his wife and daughter were frantic with grief The news was received at the Central office and Mr J 0 Russell and Mrs Georgia Sheltonga delivered the sad intelligence to his loving wife and daughter at home Itg was so unexpected and produced suchM BJ fearful state of mind that a physician was called to attend them theirlgriefmany who called to administer a word of consolation and help bear the burden of sorrow were likewise almost over come The home was full of callers all day and stouthearted men as well as loving women wept like little children No other death in recent years has had such an effect on our people and no one has passed over the chilly waters of death with more expressions of griefl by the people of this section Grief a tribute of esteem a badge of friend ship a token of love freely shared with those whose hearts were broken could not have been more general and should be comforting in these their saddest daysThe devotion between the departed and the wife and daughter was as strong as genuine love could build and the evidence of it was as pronounced as it was genuine and true In the busy walks of life battling in honest endeavor for earthly reward many may drift from the manifestations of love but in this instance it seemed the paraS mount object of existence Mr C H Murrell had as broad acquaintance as any man in this section and we believe that he had as manyB friends and as few enemies He was ag big hearted man always on the side of life sharing in the pleasantries of friends rather than lingering in th shadows of disappointments For nearn ly ten years he had been connected with The News in the capacity of busi5 ness solicitor and had built a strong trade in Adair and adjoining counties a trade he highly appreciated and which speaks much for the fair square dealings that secured it His connec tion with this office was pleasant socially and in business and many a little sparing match in boyish jocularity hasM I been indulged in He understood hisB business Was fair to every customers and true to his trustleaving no wounds between his many patrons and Th- Newsa e condition that all must enjoy On last Thursday he left home fo Campbellsville and Greensburg intend ing to return on Tuesday but on Saturday morning between nine and teng oclock just as he was arranging to leave for Greensburg he dropped to theffl floor a dead man while in the washroom in the Commercial Hotel andldeathsought relief at a drug store H andIdied anfd u I He was a zealous member of the Meth odist church and lived within the spirit Bof its teachings with an unshaken hope lof a blessed

where many friends were anxiously waiting The funeral services were held in the Meth dist church on Sunday at one oclock con ducted by Rev A R Easey his pastor assisted by Eld Z T Williams The house was crowded to its full capacity and both speakers paid a high tribute to the virtues of the deceased and spoke particularly of the unusual devotion manifested for his wife and daughter In the city cemetery in the presence of one of the largest gatherings that have met there to pay the last sad rites to a departed friend the body was laid to rest and the mound bedeckedwith wreaths of the

two cases are sent back for another trial but Judge Thurman was in error in holding the affidavit filed by Mr Wathen insufficient to authorize his re tiring from the bench and turning over to a special judge the duty of presiding at the trial A regularly elected commis sioned and sworn judge has a most important duty imposed upon him he must preside in the trial of all cases in which he snot legally disqualified however much he might like in particular cases to evadeperformancet of a duty When an affidavit is filed and motion made fora special judge he alone must pass upon the legal sufficiency of the affidavit willturge him to vacate the bench escape theresponsibility awhile the obligation of his oath on the other side demands that he disregard his inclination and try the csae if LEGAL cause to the contrary has not been shown A party can make any he may desire against the judge in such an affidavit knowing that the lips of the judge are sealed and that he can no either demand evidence of the truth of the charges or offer proof of their falsity according- to the law as laid down by the court of appeals every statement in such an affidavit whether true or false must be taken as true for the purpose of determining the duty of the presiding judge oatn the ground that Judge Thurman though proved his impartiality by correctly applying the law on the trial his refusal to vacate the bench was of itself an errorThe court in discussing the evidence which wastaken down in short hand and copied ver batim for the appeal makes it clear that if the defendants or their agents sold the barrel o whiskey to Mr Lee with the knowledge and intention that it prne mises between the contributing members of the clubor with the intention that any one o their agents or employees should assist in the distribution the are guilty of a violation of the statue and just as fully liable to the penalties declared as if they were men without wealth influence or high social standing To the layman it would appear that the defendants are to use a slang expression up against it for the court of appeals has said in substance that the judgment of conviction was beenfIt is a mistake for any one to suppose that there is a different rule of conduct for the wealthy bse applied to the humblest citizen When the tribunals charged with the duty of enforcing the laws enacted by proper authority cease to apply them to all alike and fail to regard the fundamen tal principle of tgood government that before the law all men are equal it will be an evil day for our country THE ENTERPRISE is proud to say that in this district atJeast h that day has not yet an it trust will never come It is time that men cease the cry of persecution as a defense to a charge of having violated the law if a person indicted be guilty the enforcement of the law is no persecution and if he be innocent a fair trial on the evidence will vindicate him and also the law which is for the protection of the innocent as well as the punishment of the guilty In these cases as in all others brought before him Judge Thur man has shown himself to be firm uncompromising aniim partial in enforcing the law as it is written and as it has been construed by the court of appeals with no motive other than to perform his duty as he sees it undeterred by threats clamor or any consideration of persons For this purpose he was elected and not to bend or twist the law to suit the interests or feelings of any man or set of men It is to be hoped that all will recognize the plain fact that the good citizen is he who seeks to uphold the law so long as it is on the statute book rather than he who claims a privilege of vio lating a law because it does not cons flict with his personal interests Lebanon Enterprise

Brittany Dolphin hunting as a sport is old to the Malouins the Inhabitants of St Malo Several species of dolphins are to be met with near the shores of Brittany TheJargest is known to science as Delphinus delphis and differs from other varieties by its long jaws very like the beak of a big bird and armed with about sixty teeth as hard and sharp as steel Its length may reach nine feet and it weighs from 300 to 400 pounds A swift swimmer it preys on the schools of herrings fol lowing them right up to the Scottish waters In spite of its greed it is noted for its mild temper and fre quently amuses itself by playing around ships in the open sea Then there is the Delphinus tursio or souf fleur This is smaller and its beak is shorter though armed with strong powerful teeth that enable it to attack a big fish pinning it down to the rocks with such force that its nose is often deeply marked with numerous cuts This dolphin hates the very sight of a ship and never comes close to one Finally there is the porpoise or mar couin the smallest species of the genus Much sport may be obtained by hunting these various dolphins Wide World Magazine HIS UMBRELLAI It Was the Cause of Airing Family

worth For this reason he was fifteen years old before the public fully realized that he was the greatest sire that this county has ever Red Bird is now owned by Judge of Ky and he stands at a high price he does not lack for and notwithstanding his age he can not be today for 100000 The time has already come when the horse like man by what he Can do rather than by his alone Grey Lexington has the combined action of the saddle horse and the trotter In harness can go high and fast No horse in Adair county not bred can pass him on the road As a saddle horse he has five distinct gaits Goes a walk in some style can rack a mile on short notice He is free from defects blemishes has good eyes plenty of sense and is pleasant to hndleHe has proven himself to be a fine breed ereOn account of his common individuality he has not had an opportunity to serve many firstclass mares but notwith this fact if he has ever sired an inferior undersized colt no one knows where to find This is a statement that can be made about but few horses and of course cannot be said of any horse that has had a great deal of custom The first colt sired by Grey now owned by Lloyd Watson of Cane Valley She is only two years old but could not be for less than 20000 No one in Adair county has a better one regardless of breeding His yearling colts are near Purdy and of course were raised from common mares yet they are far superior to colts raised from better mares that were sent away and bred to horses at a higher price Anyone can talk but all people cannot prove their words to be true For the proof of what I have said I refer any interested party to any colt ever sired by Grey Lexington His colts are walking advertisements of his worth a breeder He will at 10 to Insure a+ Living Money due when colt foaled

social relations The city has killed that But it is ESSENTIAL TO A FULL AND COMPLETE LIFE and we must revive it ALL THE GRASPING AND THE GREED OF THIS WORLD COMES FROM NOT REGARDING OUR FELLOWS AS OUR NEIGHBORS ONE DOESNT TRAMPLE HIS NEIGHBORS HE WORKS WITH THEM TO A COMMON END WE MUST COME TO LOOK ON ALL TIME WORLD AS OUR NEIGHBORS We must do away with the idea of classes THERE ISNT ANY JUSTIFICATION FOR CLASS LINES IN AMERICA They are unjust unwholesome unrighteous and unAmerican Why should we have class lines here in this country and one man despise another just because he has been lucky enough to make a little more money A man has some right to be proud of what he makes with his own hands and his own brains but HE HASNT ANY BUSINESS PUTTING ON AIRS over what he is merely trying to spend WE ARE ALL WORKINGMEN HERE IN AMERICA I have never seen a man that was worth anything who didnt work in one way or another I think that often the man who sits at a desk does harder work than the man who handles a shovel But anyway they BOTH ARE WORKINGMEN THERE ARE JUST TWO CLASSES THOSE WHO WORK AND THOSE WHO DONT AND THERE ISNT ANY REASON WHY ALL THOSE WHO WORK SHOULDNT BE NEIGHBORS TO

YET HAVE DONE THEN THEY MUST USE THEIR BRAINS TO GET WHAT THEY WANT THROUGH THE MEANS WHICH GOD HAS GIVEN THEM SO ABUNDANTLY ANY WOMAN OF BRAINS I WILL NOT SAY BEAUTY BUT OF CHARM AND ATTRACTIVENESS CAN DRAW WHAT SHE NEEDS FROM MOST MEN One argument made by the suffragettes is that a woman has noIcontrol over her own property However this may have been ago at the present time it is not the case
