To J Death of E ! J. Page. Removed by Death. Last Friday morning about 5 o'clock, Mrs. Nellie Caldwell, the beloved wife of Mr. Robert Caldwell, closed her eyes in death. Her demise was not a surprise, as it was generally known that her condition was critical, being afflicted with pulmonary trouble The end came at Milltown where she was born and reared, being a daughter of Mr and Mrs. N. S Mercer, who were prominent in that section of the county where they lived. The deceased was twice married, her first husband being Iven Patterson; who died about seven years ago. Three years ago she was again married to Mr Robert Caldwell, whosur-vive- s her She was about 36 years old, and was a consistent member of Baptist Church. More the than twelve months ago her health began to fail, and s"he and her husband went to New Mexico, hoping that a higher altitude would prolong her life, but it was a fruitless trip, and about seven weeks ago she came home to await the final dissolution The funeral services were held at Milltown Saturday forenoon, conducted by Rev. Leslie J. B. Smith, assisted by Rev. Kemper, who paid high tribute to the character of the departed. A large concourse of relatives aud friends were in attendance, mingling their tears with those who had suffered the great loss. There were many beautiful flowers. There were no children, and the lonely husband is almost heart broken. Her brothers Jas T, N T., and Albert Mercer, and sisters, Mrs W. S. Hlndmau, are in sorrow now on account of the loss of a devoted sister's love. To all who "have been so sorely bereaved, this paper extends its pro foundest condolence. Gone to His Jleward.

CG White and Black: I have decided to become a candidate for County Judge of Adair county. The county of my birth, the county that I love, the county where my ancestorslived and died aud are buried and I hope to live and die in the same good old county. I have never cast a vote in any other county, and never expect too I have lived in other counties, but have always come back to old Adair to cast my suffrage. Have never missed an election since I began voting, and 1 have voted and worked hard to secure the election of some of the men and their friends and relatives that are today fighting me unjustly, simply for the reason that I will not be dictated to by them. Some men's idea of thiners is to rule or ruin, but I want to say that I know most of the voters of Adair county and they know me I have served you twelve years in a official capacity. Pour years as Justice of the Peace from the first district, and you all know as to what kind of an officer I made you, especially the voters of the first district, and 1 am perfectly will ing for you to investigate my record. ISezt 1 wai Deputy County Court Clerk under Walker Bryant and then I was elected Jailer of your county. You all know full well what kind of an officer I made you. I am willing for you to make a careful investigation and ask any prisoner that I had in my charge if they didn't get a square deal Now, the Hon. W. S Sinclair, who is my opponent on the Republican ticket and present Judge of Adair Co., is to my knowledge and belief a high toned gentlemen, but his ideas and mine are not the same by a whole let when it comes to , running the affairs of the county. For instance, look at the Campbellsville pike, which is the only inlet and outlet of our county and those who pass over this road are my witnesses in saying that it is a disgrace and a shame for the amou..u of toll that is taken in on this pike for it to be in such a condition. What becomes of the money that is collected? Will the witnesses please answer? I want to say this, if you will elect me your Judge I will fix up this pike for you and will fix it with the money that is collected on it or I will know the reason why. And look at our country roads. I am in favor of each and every Magisterial District having and spending every cent that comes to their precincts from their road fund, and I am strictly in favor that Xhey d should use it and not get and not draw it out. Our roadB also should be worked earlier1 in the year and let them get packed and firm before winter time sets in and make a lot of mud holes. Now, there is a great lot oeiug did about me voting for King Swope for Congress. Yes, I voted for King Swope and here are my reasons, simply, because I am a American citizens aud a taxpayer, aud according to our constitution, I have a right to vote for anybody that I want to vote for and that is exactly what 1 do and I think that every other good American citizen snouia ao tnesame ana ,ir they are too prejudiced to do this, they ought to be disfranchised aud net allowed to vote. Aud cliis is why I voted tor King Swope. 1 had three brothers and fifteen cousins and lots of friends and neighbors in the service. I also have an old'gray headed mother that lives in my home that saw her sobs march away to war and then turned away with a broken heart not even thinking that she would ever see them all again, but God was good to her-anthe rest of us He spared their lives and they returned safe, a miracle you all know. I said and lots of you said when the war was on that if our boys ever got home aud wanted office we would give them anything they wauted. I kept my word, did you? Answer my question. No! jou did bm. --But --when a man is honest mule-headefree-born This coifnty lost a splendid citizen last Monday night. Mr. E. J.

The CLAN CALL ee CHAPTER III Goliath of the hlltc. Dale awoke a little after daybreak, arose and dressed himself, and went out by way of the door beside the huge chimney. The mountain air was bracing. Dale threw out his chest and started eagerly for a walk. The road led past the cabin of Crnndpnp Moreland.

Not until be had put a minnow on the hook and ca.--t it out did he see that he was not alone at the pool. On the other side, less than sixty feet away, Babe Littleford sat on a stone the size of a small barrel : she held a cane fishing-roin her 'hands, and her bare feet were in the water to her ankles. She was looking squarely toward Dale, and there was something akin to reproachful anger in her long brown eyes. "Oood niorninsr!" called Dale, lifting his hat. There was no reply. There was not even a change of countenance. Again Dale called his friendly greeting, and again there was no reply. It piqued Dale. A few yards down the stream , the white body of a sycamore lay from one bank to the other; It had been blown there by a recent storm. Dale wound his line, went down and crossed by means of the prostrate tree. She didn't even look around when he walked up to her and spoke again. It struck him as being decidedly odd. "I say," he told her, "you're as chatty as a set of stencils. You mustn't talk so much, y'know." Her eyes smiled at the river, but Dale couldn't see her eyes. "Do you like violets, Miss Littleford?" he asked next. In the black, soil at his feet grew a carpet of the finest violets he had ever seen. Babe let the tip of her cane rod fall Into the water and looked around. "It sounds funny to hear a man talk o sech little things as vl'Iets." she declared.
