Will Probably Throw Some Light Upon one of the Most Terrible Tragedies of the Kentucky Mountain Country Widow of Prominent Jackson Lawyer Makes Fight in Court Murder Plot Charged Alleged Assassins Are Now Under Sentence of Life Imprisonment BELIEVED TO BE TOOLS James and Alex Hargis Ed wardCallahan and Fulton French are the De fendants Public Not Satisfied With Inves tigation That Stops With the Conviction of the Principals Will Mrs Arbella Marcum win her damage suit and if so what light will be thrown on the plot which re sulted in the assassination of her hus band This is the question asked by thou sands of people In Central and Eastern Kentucky who are discussing the civil action Instituted In the Clark Circuit Court by the widow of James B Marcum to recover 100000 dam age from James and Alex Hargis and Edward Callahan of Jackson and B Fulton French of Winchester who the petition alleges conspired togeth er to bring about the murder of Mr MarcumMrs Marcums fight for justice has awakened new interest in one of the grlmest tragedies that has marked the bloodstained annals of the Ken tucky mountains Mrs Marcums troubles have held the interest and sympathy not of Kentucky people alone but of people throughout the United States since her husband be came the victim of cowardly assassins and her children five ranging In age from eighteen to babyhood and one unborn were made orphans- In jail in Louisville under sentence of life imprisonment for the Marcum murder and under sentence of death for the murder ofIIJlm Cockrill Is Curtis Jett dissolute nephew of James Hargis known In Jackson asuWlld Dog who swaggered about the streets with a large revolver at his belt and carted to being know as a dangerous man In jail at Covington Is Tom White a comrade ofIIWHd Dog sentenced to life imprisonment for complicity In the Marcum murder That Jett and White murdered Mr Marcum for hire Is not doubted by anyone who believes the testimony on which the two men were convict ed That they were hired by men who believed themselves Immune from punishment In the courts of Bloody Breathltt Is believed by a majority of those who are familiar with affairs in Jackson Whether Mrs Marcum has in view the possibility of bringing out by tes timony In her damage suit evidence upon which to base criminal prosecu tions against persons who are belles ed to have instigated the murder is a question asked frequently by persons discussing the suit Mrs Marcum is a pretty little wo man still in her thirties In her great dark brown eyes can be seen the shadow of an Ineffaceable sorrow In the lines which have deepened upon her face since May 5 1903 when the long expected news of the assassina tion was borne to her at her little home nestling among the trees upon the mountainside above Jackson there Is shown the settled melancholy of a life bereft of that which was its chief interests Fondling her manly little sons who resemble their father In form and feature the widowed mother trembles to think that the venom of the murderers may not have been spent in making her children father less but that the time may come when the assassins bullet may strike them down also She knows that should her suit be unsuccessful the only result will be to add to her list of dreaded enemies but with the blood of her murdered husband cry Ing out for justice she is making a fight to avenge his death The bit terness of uudyiug hatred for those who she believes to be guilty of the crime has perhaps lent her strength The four men whom Mrs Marcum charges with the responsibility of her widowhood are James Hargis Alex Hargis Edward Callahan and B Ful ton French James Hargis is County Judge of Breathitt county He has long been powerful in county and congressional district politics He is a Democratic leader in State politics a member of the Democratic State Central Com mittee a personal friend and political counsellor of Gov Beckham Alex Hargis is a former Democratic State Senator He is a shrewd mer chant who with his brother has been successful in Jackson and has amassed what in that part ol the State is considered and Immense for tuneEdward Callahan is High Sheriff of Bloody Breathitt He was ap pointed by Judge Hargis alter an election in which such fraudulent practices were resorted to that the Appellate Court held the election void and the office vacant He is a Hargis henchman and was formerly of the clan Callahan in the Strong Callahan feud in which much blood was spilled Fulton French is a man of means who resides in Clark county He was at oceJme the leader of the French faction in the sanguinary FrenchEversole feud In Perry county He is a friend of Callahan and the Hargie brothers and was employed by the Hargis brothers to defend Cur tis Jett He is now under indictment at Cynthiana for the subornation of perjury In the case It Is charged that he procured perjnrers to swear to an alibi for Wild Dog Mr French was not in Jackson when Mr Marcum was murdered These are the four men against whom Mrs Marcum is waging war Either of them can command more money than she has ever had during her life Each of them has a large personal following in the mountains In mountain affairs a personal fol lowing counts for much in courts of lawNot since the Indians tomahawked Infants brained women and exhaust ed their fiendish ingenuity in devis ing horrible tortures by which to pro long the agony of their prisoners ot war has there been perpetrated in Kentucky a series ot crimes of such peculiar atrocity as that which cut minated in the murder of James B Marcum and caused the eyes of the civilized world to be focused at once upon the little mountain town of Jackson which had already earned the sinister appellation The City o Sudden Death Dr D B Cox was marked It was known that he would be killed When the fatal shot was to be fired was not definitely known That it would be fired from ambush was known for that was the method of those who take human life in Jack son Dr Cox was a practicing phy sician He avoided as much as pos sible going out after nightfall but one night he was called to a sick bed He passed a stable in the rear of Har gis Brotherss store The dull report of a shotgun heavily loaded broke the stillness and Dr Cox unarmed un warned fell riddled with shot As he lay writhing In his death agony the assassin approached took the shell from his singlebarrel shotgun reloaded and deliberately fired another charge into his prostrate victim Theyve got Dr Cox was whis pered The expected had happened James Cockrill was marked It was known in Jackson that he would be shot from behind It was thought the the assassins would await their chance at night and Cockrlll avoided going on the streets at night But rendered carless of detection by the belief that the law would not reach them the assassins decided to kill him at the earliest opportunity What mattered It If they should be seen InuTh City of Sudden Death no one would dare to say he saw the murder done Cockrill was in love with a beauti ful girl whose home was in Jackson She knew his danger She begged him not to be eeen on the streets even in daylight Promise me that you will not go up town today she slid All right little girl said Cock rlll smilinguAter today I shall not be seen in Jackson It is cow ardly to let them run me out but if you say so I shall leave But today the girl pleaded Dont go up town today They know you are thinking of leaving and they are deperately anxious to kill youI just going to make one trip up town It is important said Cockrlll and finally persuaded her that there would be no danger at mid day with the streets crowded with people Cockrllls object in going up town was to see a life Insurance agent and have his insurance made payable to the girl he loved and hoped to marry if he lived When Cockrill neared the court house he heard the report ofa rifle and a steel bullet cut a furrow In the red clay road near his feet Real z ing his danger he started to run around the corner hoping to get a building between himself and the ns saslns but he ran the wrong way and exposed himself to the men who fired repeatedly from the court house windows One bullet bore a hole through the wood pillar of a porch under which he ran Another cut through the iron roof of the porch and passed though his throat Another struck him in the side as he fell The assas sins stood looking out of the win dows seen by many Jackson citizens Their work was done Theyve got Cockrill was whis pered InuThe City of Sudden Death no one dared say more Sev eral Een who knew that they could not deny having seen the assassins left Jackson immediately lest they should be marked James B Marcum was marked next For seventytwo days he was a prisoner in his home not daring to sit by a lighted window at night not daring to show his face by day In a woodland near by lurked several pro fessional murderers with their rifles moral perverts whose highest mental development was in the training that made it possible for them to shoot a man dead at 500 yards and slink away into the woods after being paid for the work After living like a huntedanimal for more than two months Mr Mar cum decided to leave Jackson The problem was how to get out of the town alive Friends advised him to surround himself with the women of his family and walk to the sta tion as even the professional mur derers hand is stayed when he must shoot a woman or a baby to kill the A Boys Wild Ride for Life With family around expecting him to die and u son

Griffin Bro drug store man who has been ularkedIThrough the morning came a strange procession Bearing his youngest child upon his breast and surrounded by his sisters and his wife walked James B Mar cum leaving his homean exilei Enemies of Mr Matcum stood on the streets and by loud guffaws evi denced their contempt for a man who was afraid There was no danger they said but the marked man had been warned of the plot He knew dangerAfter period of absence in which he had found it Impossible to dispose of his property and wind up his af fairs in Jackson Mr Marcum returned Intending to leave in a short time Again he kept within doors to escape assassination Again the man slayers lurked in the woods awaiting their chance Finally on May 5 legal business compelled Mr Marcum to go to the court house in answer to a summons Now was the chance of the assassins Hardly had Mr Mercum reached the court house door and turned to speak to B J Ewen who stood in the doorway than Tom White walk ed out of the door blushing past the lawyerLaying his hand on Ewens shoul der Mr Marcum said Ewen I am afraid that man means to harm me A pistol shot rang out in the court house hall UMy God they have killed me at last cried Marcum sinking to his knees as the bullet wet t clashing through his body Turning and looking down the hallway Ewen sax Curtis Jett a1 vancing with a pistol in both hands Jumping aside he herd another shot The powder burned the face of the dying man as the atsussln leaned forward and fired ano+ her into his headPerhaps twenty men saw the mur derer fire the shot but none dared to upeck of it lest he too should be tilled But this last atrocity turned the eyes of the world on Jackson By sheer force of public opinion Gov Beckham was forced to send three companies of militia to Jackson to protect witness s while an investiga tion was made His friend Hargis was incensed and his friend Redwlne the Circuit Judge whose name with that of Hargis had been signed to many petitions for par ion when murderers had been convicted in his court did not seem pleased but the civilized world demanded that sys tematic assassination be checked in Jackson As a result of the investigation Curtis Jett and Thomas White were convicted at Cynthiana after a mis trial at Jackson and Jett was con victedIf the Cockrill murder The public was disgusted because no ap parent effort was made to indict any save the actual murderers where there seemed no terabl theory save that they had been hired It would be useless to try to In dict anyone as an accessory until there is a change and a new jude is elected said Jacksm citizens Judge Redwine withdrew from the judicial race The stepIves it Is said advised by Gov Iteckhnm who felt that the success of the Democrat ic ticket would be endangered If he continued in the race Judge Kiddtll was elected Judge Redwine and Judge Har is were seen little In political gather Ings until the General Ats mbly convened The Democrats in power

that people an nowadays eating too n any rich foods having too many late suppers and withIdishes and to the further fact they are not using the proper precautions to a keep the waste eliminators ot

able to do so 4yearsago but it is able to do so now r and the reason it has not conquered this terrible disease in the case of GO l1many prominent men and women recently succumbed to its attacks Is because they have not con quered themselves because these men and women lave too frequently yield to the desire oj the palate and stomach without attention to the slur plest rule of health-

a feeling of serenity he is not easily thrown off his balance he has nothing to fear and he can look the world in the face because he feels conscious that he has not put shoddy Into anything that he has nothing to do with shams and that he has al ways done his level best The sense of efficiency of being master ol ones craft of being equal to any emergency the consciousness of possessing the ability to do with superiority whatever one undertakes will give soul satisfaction which a halfhearted slirshod worker never known When a man feels throbbing within him the power to do what he under takes as well as it can possibly be done and all his faculties say Amen to what he Is doing and give unqualified approval to his ef forts this is happiness this is sue cess This buoyant sense of power spurs the faculties to their fullest development It unfolds the mental the moral and the physical forces and the very growth the conscious ness of an expanding mentality and of a broadening horizon gives an added satisfaction beyond the power of words to describe It is a realization of nobility the divinity of the mind Success Do You Want Strength- If you want to increase your strength you must

country was frustrated It was a deed which Mrs Emily C Taylor contended conveyed to her the estate left by hr father but the court held the deed was fraudulent In 1872 James C Swank a wealthy farmer living in this county made his will in favor of his children and heirs He died in 1873 and the title to the estate passed to his wife during her life time In 1903 one of the sons died and an application was made to the court to sell his share In the un divided estate to pay funeral expenses At this time the fraudulent deed ap peared and by it the estate passed to Mrs Emily C Swank a daughter of J C Swank Mrs Taylor said she had never shown the deed to any one for fear she might lose It She claims she has carried It for thirtyfour years In her bustle Had the deed been genuine the will would have been nntidated by it but the jury found it fraudu lentOn the evidence of Prof Drake ol the LaFayette Business College the jury based their decision Mrs Tay lor claims she wrote the

state government over not to Democrats hut to an organized hand of political pirates and grega rious jackals PEOPLE of any position in life are liable to find themselves in the strong grasp of the law The most recent evidence of this fact is the fil ing ofa suit for divorce by Mrs Taylor against her husband exGovernor Robert L Taylor of Tennessee WHEN u man blows a safe he is usually given a term in the peniten tiary but when he can hide behind a law passed by a Democrat Legislature and signed by a Democratic Governor and rob the State banks of one or two million dollars he is sure to be

act of repudiating the suits filed by one of the socalled Auditors agents against several hundred financial institutions of the State There has been a prevalence of these suits since the passage of

Btckbam nor the legislature in all probability had any intention of conquest but the county crosses the Ohio river cuts a nice little strip off the State of Ohio aud then dashes back Into Kentucky slashes Lewis county Into three parts the middle one going to constitute apart of the new county Thus Is the county seat of Lewis county entirely out of its territory and the county it self consists of two isolated strips- It has been discovered since the legislature adjourned that the western boundary line described in the act creating Beckham county after tray eising Lewis county crosses the Ohio river extends about nine miles into Adams county Ohio From this n- an s extreme northern point the Beck ham line runs southward again cross ing the Ohio river and cutting B small corner off Greenup county Beckham county is in the form of triang e and sweeps out the entire central portion of Lewis countyand embaced within Itself Vancebnrg th county seat ot Lewis county Thp latter county now consists of two strips of land which are separated from each other by the bulk of Beckham Just what effect this state of affairs will have on Lewis county is hard to calculate The county seat of Lewis is in Beckham and HP official busi ness for one county cannot be trans acted in another all acts of the offi vials of Lewis county since the pas sage of the bll creating Beckham county are null and void who have procured marriage licens- In Vanceburg during the past few weeks and had the marriage ceremo my performed are not husband and wife and are prolnbly subject to in dictment for immoral conduct If any one had procured a divorce and married again since the act passed they would he by the fame course of reasoning guilty of bigamy and lia ble to be sentenced to the peniten tiary Deeds mortgages and other Instruments which have been record ed are of no effect and thousands of dollars may be lost in real estate deals Salaries paid to county officials out of the treasury of Lewis county may have to be refunded to Beckham county In short It is not likely that such another tangle of government affairs ever existed in the his tory of the world SALEM KY March 22Mr L H Brown has

and trailing her skirts over the dead grass that the frost has to come For the same Reason Polly perhaps I explained that after a night headncht has Or to followIOr that honeymoons wane Its inevitableAnd parks in winter said Polly reflectively putting her muff up to one ear to warn it are so blank and dismal Like matrimony after a summer love I suggested And the trees stand bare and gauntLike the fact of life alter the ro mance has all been rnbbed off I sighedAnd the wind blows up little colds of dust that blind you Like the little storms and quarrels that blind you to one anothers at tractions after you are married I dont believe it saidPolly Women never do said I until they experiencel it Youre only engaged you know Polly put the muff across her little noseBut Ive known lots of married people said she and besides it isnt polite or pleasant for you to remind me of it It looks as though you either wanted to lecture meor break the engagement- I caught Pollys mufl and pulled it down from her face Dont cried Polly backing away from me and putting her hand over her lips Dont Did you mean il said I looking into her eyes Nooo cried Polly and besides the park policeman is coking Anyhow she went on after a pause talking through the hole in her mufl if marriage isnt continuous courtship it is always the mans fault The very day after he gets tack from the honeymoon trip he rnshes ofl and buries himself in stocks oror some thingStocks by stocking I remarked I couldnt see Pollys face because her muff quite covered the side nearest meAnd it is only a very few weeks be fore be forgets to kiss his wife in the morning because he is so busy criti rising the coldness of the coffee Perhaps I suggested it is the cold ness of his wife tbat is affecting him He seems to think said Polly ig noring me that the compliment he pays a woman by marrying her Is the last he need every pay her He forgets how to say all the pretty things he used to say before they were married He even forgets how he used to look at htr 11 she comes down in a new frock that she has spent days and days worrying over to please him he merely gives a grunt of approval or disapproval remarks that she Is get ting too matronly to wear pink and turns to the morning paper Or the bill I murmured If she tries to tell him what she thinks is a Joke he makts scornful remarks about her sense of humor He raises his eyebrows coldlywhen she attempts to be cute or clever If she Is hurt her tears get on his nerves When she tells him a piece of news he advises her to sot gossip He forgets that it was not his good judgment but his chivalry that won her heart that it was not his remarkable common sense but his charming man ners and the way in which be told her that her hair was pretty that first taken interest in him He remarks to him self that when you have caught a street car there isnt any further need of running after it but he dont re memember that there is a great deal in having a pleasant journey in that car and that there is a lot in getting on the right side of it where you can catch the fair winds and the scent of of the flowers along the roadside and I escape the squalls and storms of mat rimony And Polly sat down on a I park bench began kicking the lead grass with the toe of her boot Well I remarked of course I didnt know as much about it as you seem to- Polly glanced furtively at me over her U1Uf- tDut I sent on Imperturhly I dont suppose a wife ever forgets that it was the curl in her hair that first caught n fellows eye when she comes dawn to breakfast with her pompa dour slicked back And doubtless 1J woman ever allowed the butclur The Trying Time In a young Rids life ill reached when Nature lends cr uncertain across the tine which cYvidea

touched a mans heart and allowed her husband to hear her railing at the servant or arguing with the butcher And Jack said Polly getting up and shaking out her skirts the sun is go ing down and its time to go homeBut I remarked pointing to the park policeman he will think you got up just because you saw him comingPolly tat down again Polly love Polly Lee corrected Polly Polly love I reptated It Isnt any bodys fault that November and the frost must come and it isnt any bodys fault tbat two young people who marry must wake up from their summertime dream to face the bare cold fact of common place everyday life The trouble is that they blame it allon one another that is all Both otthem ought to prepare for it just as the squirrel takes the bummer time in which to prepare for win terWhat exclaimed Poliy for once letting her mull fall in her lap spend your whole courtship studying cook books and economy Yes and giving up tobace and the clubAnd looking tar chtap apartment hous s when you to breading Brow ing or playing Chopin tald Polly scornfullyThats said I firmly Ugh said Polly that is worse than the idea of the old woman who be lieved In spending all her life saving for her funeral expenses Its like doing penance for sins you havnt committed or shutting out the morn ing sunshine so that you wont notice the night when it comes or reading the last chapter of the novel first or going without pie when you want it so that you may be sure to have it when you dont want it I dont be lieveYou dont believe anything I sighed Well I dont believe In spending the morning of the courtship in worrying over the nightmare of matrimony I know a better way is Poll I ed anxiouslyIWell said Polly looking up at me coyly when the sun goes down and the frost comes why not turn on the artifcial lights andGirt a little Flirt I looked duly horrified Yeswith one another How on rarthI began PoltyIas they did before they were married And the man could commence the flirtation by sending his wife a box of roses oror- Or a nice large check I suggested How sordid said Polly scornfully A woman would rather have a rose tenderly tucked iu the bur than a new frock a love not than a 20 bill a compliment and a kiss than a whole bank account Why If the average Man would only tell his wife now and then that he loved her But she knows that I declared Of course she docs She knows how bonbons taste too but that Isnt equivalent to tasting them is it And as I stated to say if he would only tell her once in a whilenot of tenthat he loved her he would soon realize how delightful a milt flirtation with his wife could make married life and he would keep up a running fire of it all the time Why two people who keep up a constant flirtation never could grow apart Theyd just draw closer and closer Like this I inquired sliding nearer Polly and slipping my arm softly across the back of the bench And Instead of grasping out tar commonsense views continued Polly ignoring the interrupting they would grasp one anothers hands Like this and I slipped my hand into Pollys mufi and caught her lit fingersAnd of philosophical discussions and quarrels for breakfast Polly pursued they would have kissesLike this Gates closing called the park po iceman Tbat was what I meant Jack said Polly laughing at me across her muffPerhaps said I looking indignant lyat the park policeman but he ntv er will

who uses DeWitts aliiIConstruting McKinley Who shall most faithfully construe McKinleyhis FreeTrade enemies who scorned and scouted his economic doctrines or his Protectionists friend who loved him understood him and believed in him Free Traders and a few Republicans with unconscious yearnings for FreeTrade have Insist ed that in his Buffalo speech deliver ed the day before he was struck down by an assassins bullet McKinley renounced his lifelong faith in the oveisbadowing importance of the great home market and professed a desire for freer larger competition from the outside world Rep means and Protectionists insist that no such construction can rightly be placed upon McKinleys utterances at Buf Palo in September root Which is right in his interpretation the Free Trader or the Republican The ques tion is easily answered- In his speech last week in the House of Representatives Congress man Dalzell spoke the thought of unwavering Republicanism when ke saidI know that certain enemies of Pro tection have contended that President McKinley in his last speech abandon ed that doctrine There are detached sentences in that speech which might mean almost anything but taken as a whole It was a McKinley speech Its keynote sounded the supreme im portance of the home market But whether he did or not the faith of the Republican party today on this subject is declared in the platform for 1900Well said and true It is not to be denied that in certain detached sentences McKinley seemed to favor some plan as yet unformed in his mind for the enlargement of our foreign trade though reciprocity arrangements but always with a reservation In behalf of home production He bad made no special study of this subject from the standpoint of Pro tectionlsm He had not advanced beyond the stage of generalization Great and presseug problems in his first four years of the Presidency had left little leisure for examination of the intricate economic questions In volved in reciprocity He vas feel Ing his way It is true but with no uncertainty of step no stumbling on the broad general question of Protec tion as a national policy His attitude In that regard was distinctly defined In the following statement ip a conversation at the White House with Congressman Robert W Taylor of Ohio the member who succeeded McKinley in the Canton district In the early part of June 1901 just three months prior to the Buflalo speech President McKinley made to Repre sentative Taylor the following state ment I fivor no plan of reciprocity that takes from a single American work ingman his job Had Mckinley changed his attitude toward the Amtricun workingmau thirteen wci ks later when he spoke at Bun tlo There is no reason whatever to think so On the contrary It was the American workingman and his job that was in his mind when he satin at Buffalo By sensible trade arrangements which will not interrupt our home production we shall extend the outlets of our increasing surplus And again We shhll take from our customers such of their products as we can use without harm to our industries and labor These two detached sentences golden sentences qualify the entire speech of McKinley at Buffalo In the light of the words just quoted joined with the crisp and clear declara tion male in June 19t1 who shall deny that the construction placed upon McKinleys Buffalo speech by Congressman Dalzell is the right con struction Who shall dispute the fact that to the lIst conscious moment McKinley remained steadfast un shaken ioyal to the treat Doctrine and policy which he had stood for all liftNo the Free Trnde and Mugwump Republican construction will not do McKinley is best construed by thrsa who knew and understood him best by Republicans and Protectionists WEEDSConsumption weed

alike and care should be taked to discriminate among the many varieties- In making love to an old maid the preliminaries only are necessary Give her a fair start and she will do the rest Remember that she is mak ing up for lost time and hold on tight and shut your eyes As long as she has taken the cue dont fear the result You neednt do a thing When she Is young and innocent with a frank open work countenance and with no experience get up early every morning and watch her door step There are others on the same trail and if you wish to b an active member of the club you must do your share of the work If she accepts flowers and fruit readily dont get too gay This is only your privilege And when you feel that you cannot stand it any longer tell her so and leave the rest to her She will be your teacher You neednt do a thing Wtth a widow be calm and un moved in the face of danger You are in for it and dont get rattled Sit around where you can be reached and submit to everything But remember that S3 far as you are con cerned there is nothing doing It wont be necessary- If she is a tall straight blonde with lustrious eyes and a large openI smile dont alow your overcome you Do the right thing wait She will see that you are well taken care of Or if she is any other kind of girl it dont matter Dont do a thing yourself She will do the rest No matter how slow you may behave no fear of the ultimate result But be sure of one thing Before beginning get a mllion or so Cures Sciatic Rheumatism Mrs A E Simpson 509 Crag St Knoxville Teuir write June 10th 1899 1 have been trying the baths

recent meeting of prominent rectifiers wholesalers and jobbers in whisky it was decided to make an organized effort to get Gov Beckham to veto a bill introduced by Senator Gus WRichardson to Impose an additional tax of 53 cents a barrel on nil rectified whisky The rectifiers will appoint a com mittee to wait upon Gov Beckham and they have engaged attorneys to lay their complaints before him One contention is that the bill is un constitutional because it originated in the senate whereas all revenue bills must originate in the house Immense whisky Interests in Louisville are affected and local rectifiers threaten to move to other states if Gov Beckham does not veto the bill Gov Beckham will probably be somewhat embarrassed in the matter on account of the fact that newspapers have recently been publishing statements that whisky men have stated that they had refused to send money to Frankfort to defeat certain legislation because Qov Beckham had Intimated that they would be Injtroduced

attempt to doc tor himself although he may have the proper remedies at hand A physician should always be called be bourn in mind however that pneumonia always results from a cold or from attack of the

daughter o Mr and Mrs Ed Wallace who died at her home in Fordsville March 5 1904Another little lamb has gone To dwell with Him who gave Another little darling babe Is sheltered in the grave God needed one more angel child Amidst His shining band And so He bent with loving smiles And clasped our darlings hand Little Nola from us has gone Her voioe we loved is still A place is vacant in our home Which never can be filled God in His wisdom has recalled The one His love has given And though her body slumbers here Her soul is safe in heaven Tis hard to break the tender cords When love has bound our hearts Tis so hard to speak the words We must forever part Dearest loved one we must lay thee In the peaceful graves embrace But thy memory will be cherished Until we see thy heavenly face We have lost our darling daughter She has bid us all adieu She has gone to live in heaven And her face is lost to view Oh our darling how we loved her Oh how hard to give her up But an angel came down for her And removed her from our flock The Stock Law Is it best to change our way of fen c ing Lets look at it and see Come farmers merchants miners town and country citizens lets stop awhile and reason together for our mutual benefitYears ago Ohio county land owners might have boasted of their gigantic poplar trees some five or six feet In diameter also the large sturdy oak of a century s growth with the wal nut chestnut hickory gum elm c but now most of it is gone It has been used for sawlogs rails ties boards slats c therefore timber is getting to be a considerable item in fencing Lets use as little of it as practicable Timber is getting scarce wire is getting more plentiful Lets use more wire and less timber Lets get out of the old rut But lets not aim to jump too far at first lets have a barbwire fence of three or four strands with posts twelve or fif teen feet a part that will turn all large stock such as horses mules cattle c With such a fence the town citizens and miners can fence their lots and gardens with less than half the present cost and still let their hors s and cattle run out Let us have tight fencing enough to keep all our small stock such as sheep goats hogs c confined The farmers fences frequently cross branches which require water gates and these gates are very troub lesome We can keep up one or two hundred yards of fence easier than one watergate We have same rail fence on our little place but it takes a great deal of timber and the wind blows it down We also have some wire and slat fence four feet high and the wind very frequently tears it loose from the posts which would not be the case with a 3strand wire fence Our neighbor has a slat fence three feet high with a barbwire on top that takes slats and five wires which is expensive Another one has a string of barbwire I think it has ben there for 10 years It has never blown down the posts are sound it has no watergate where it crosses the branch It is I think ten strands high It is expensive but no stock has ever got through or over it or got hurt on it that I know of How about the renter keeping stock Let the land owner furnish him pasture for what little stock he has I have now twentyeight written contracts with tenants and I have never failed to furnish one with pasture if he needed it A neighbor Informed me sometime back that a miner in this county hired his slats hauled seven miles in order to make his garden pig tight posts and 3 wires would not have cost onethird as much I have made no calculations but am of the impressions that such a law properly obeyed would save the farmers annu ally more money than they payout in taxes I dont expect such law to benefit me as I am about three score and ten years of age of which over fifty years of that time has been spent in Ohio county in farming- I wish the present and future farm ere to have an easier time than I have had But let us be reasonable and try not to injure any other class of people Be sure you are
