JANUARY 28. 1913
Some of tlie newspapers throughout
the Eighth District persist in making
the statement that the Climax will op
pose the candidacy of Governor ilc
Creary in the event of Lis announce
ment for the U. 6. Senate. This idea is
erroneous, as the Climax has, hereto
fore, and always will under the present
Kianagementt support a Madison county
ta&a against outsiders There lias nev
er been any cause why this paper should
have been classed against a home man
for any office.
Uosors are coming to Coi. W. P.
Walton, of Lexington, thick and fast.
Only a few weeks since he was a hot
tip for postmaster of his city and cow
comes tlx oews that he is to serve on
the reception committee at the inaug
uration of President Wilson. The ap
pointment came from Thomas Nelson
I'age. the author, who has been a life
lone t rieod-of CoL Walton. They were
born in the same Virginia county and
courted together in the long ago.
Hon. Jerre A Sullivan Stricken
Hon. Jerre A.' Sullivan was stricken
with paralysis while iu his office in the
State Bank and Trust Co. building Mon
day morning. The disease attacked Mr
Sullivan about 11 o'clock a. m. rather
suddenly. He had been engaged at his
desk and complained of feeling indis
posed, lie arose to walk to a couch
in the room and was lying down when he
discovered a peculiar sensation in his
left arm. Attempting to move the limb
revealed the fact that he was paralyzed
in that member. A physician was sum
moned and attended the stricken man.
Mr. Sullivan's extreme aversion to noto
riety was responsible for the news of
bis illness being suppressed until late in
the afternoon, lie protested against be
ing taken to his room in the Ho elGlyn
doa until after darkness had fallen,
when the sad intelligence of his illness
spread with rapidity and eager friends
flocked to the hotel to ascertain the se
riousness of hit condition and offer their
services and sympathy. A reporter for
the Climax called at his apartments at
the Glyndon this morning and was in
formed by Mr. Sullivan's physician that
bis condition was considered" alarming,
and that the disease had spread over the
entire left side. No one save li is attend
ants axe permitted to eee Mr. Sullivan,
although he is rational and retains his
power of speech. Friends of this excel
lent gentleman have feared for the past
two years that Mr. Sullivan has been en
urely too active in his business affairs
to remain in perfect health, as he has
bten constantly entraeed with many du
ties and responsibilities that would tax
the strongest to rstitution. His services
have always been at the disposal of his
friends, and especially has he been ac
tive in political matters, both State and
county, and educational affairs. To him
must be given credit for the advance
made ia educational matters in this
Slate and his services in behalf of better
educaticn will be a monument to his
memory. Uis illness will cause wide
spread sorrow and all will eagerly await
encouraging uews from his bedside.

Lewis Baldwin, of this county, had
a narrow esctpe from instant death in
Lexington Saturday evening He was
standing on a platform in the Union
Mai ion and in some way lost his bal
ance and tell in front of an incoming
train. The train was running slowly
when Baldwin fell from the platform
and the engineer was able to bring the
engine to a slop within about two feet
of the man, while a lart!e number of
spectator stood behind the railing sep
arating the tracks from the waiting
rooms, expect ing every moment to see
Baldwin crushed beneath the wheels of
the eneine. However the presence of
mind of the engineer in manipulating
his brakes saved his life. Baldwin was
assisted off the track by a number of
by. si and e s.

Tobacco Market Still Booming
The receipts of tobacco on the local
market is as slron? as ever and both
the Madison and Farmers Warehouses
are selling to capacity floors daily. The
offerings are in better pondiiign than
during week or ten days ago and as a
result advance in prices. The trouble
during the rainy spell was that tobacco
was either wet or in two high case and
the buvers wera afraid to take on too
much while it was in this condition.
While the tobacco houses are both busy
the rush of ten days ago is about over
and tobacco wagons do not hnd it ne
cessary to remain outside the sheds for
any length of time.

''Under the parcel post rules, the only
way apparently that a postmaster can
