the Gazette, that Hon. Joe Jackson
who for two terms has repretented
the Legislative District of Fulton
and Hickman counties Is a candidate
for a third consecutive term In the
Lower House. The rule and cus

Hickman's business men will lose
in the neighborhood of $8,000 dur
ing this and next week by reason of
lacking enough enterprise to build a
levee to protect West Hickman. At
the same ratio, the luxury of doing
without a little wall of dirt around
this part of town for the next ten
years will cost in the neighborhood
$80,000. Had there been a levee to
protect the Mengel Box Factory,
they would not nave ciosea aown
Tuesday, thus throwing 450 to 500
men out ot employment, to say
nothing of the damage sustained by
property owners. How long win
we sleep on this proposition How
long will we continue to strain at a
financial gnat and swallow a camel?
We have already lost many times
what a levee would cost. If some

Love is the only bow on life's
dark cloud. It is the morning and
evening star. It shines on the babe,
and sheds its radiance on the quiet
tomb, poet, patriot and philosopher.
It is the air and light of every heart;
builder of every home ; kindler of
every fire on the hearth ; it was the
first dress of immortality. It fills
the world with melody, for music is
the voice of love. Love is the
magician the enchanter that charges
worthless things to joy, aod makes
right royal queens and kings of
common clay. It is the perfume of
that wonderful flower, the heart,
and without that sacred passion,
divine swoon, we are less than
beasts ; but with it earth is heaven
and we are gods. Ingersoll.
Run Away Like Horse.
The most unique runaway that
ever occurred tn West Kentucky
happened here Saturday Alex
Willingham, aged 25, a resident of
Bayou De Cheln bottom, drove to
Fulton on a business trip. Neither he
nor his horse had ever seen a train.
When he saw a train approaching
the man was terrified and leaped
irom his buggy He unhitched his
horse from the vehicle, tied the
animal to a telephone pole, and,
grasping the buggy shafts, fled down
the street. In his terror Willing
ham turned to retrace his steps
across the railroad track and the
train barely missed striking the
buggy. Willingham's terror increas
ed and not until the buggy collided
with a post did he stopped running.
One wheel of the buggy was de
molished by the collision and the
vehicle was further damaged by
Willingham's frantic efforts to jerk
if free. Bystanders caught and
held Willingham untill his terror
suosided. Fulton Leader.
