11, 1837. and died February 8, 1913, at
his home near Terrill.
Deceased was 76 years of age, lacking
three days. lie professed faith in our
Savior ia early life and was baptized in
to the fellowship of Hearwallow Baptist
church byS. V. Potts. After some) ears
he moved his membership to Viney Fork
church, where he lived a consistent
christian life. Brother Todd was united
in wedlock with Miss America Y. Fin
ney, Nov. 16, 1351, which proved to be a
happy union. II is wife preceded him
to the great bejond three . years ago.
leaving to her husband the brightest
visions of the beautiful mansions pre
pared for them while under hU sad af
fliction, to brighten his pathway to that
sweet land beyond, lie leaves four
children with their families to mourn
the loss of a loving father, two sons and
two daughters Mr. J. I). Todd. Mrs.
Hugh Murray; Seth M. Todd, of this
county, and John K. Todd, of Montgom
It is a ble sed thought to know that
these sad afflictions shall be washed out,
and if II is voice could be heard, there
would be no more weeping. How fad
it is to give him up, although he bore
his suffering with pat eoce and said he
was ready to go, and asked his loved
ones not to grieve that he was going
home, where there was no pain. His
remains were laid to rest in Rich mood
cemetery on Monday, Feb. 10.
A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled,
A place is vacant ia 'lie home
That never can be filled.
To Prevent Lxtortions.
Congressman Ben Johnson, Chairman
of the House District of Columbia Com
mittee, has introduced a bill to prevent
hotels and restaurants from skinning
visitors to the inauguration by provid
ing that tbe same rates shall prevail
during the inaugural period as were in
force during the year prior to February
25, 1913, and if it passes he will further
endear himself, not only to his constit
uents but to the country at large.
These establishments, as well as oth
ers at the capital, have usually combin
ed to fleece the visitors to the inaugura
tion unmercifully, and it is reported
that this time the rates have been dou
bled and tripled by the Sb locks that
fatten on other people's necessities. As
a large number of Kentuckians will go
to see democracy come intq its own,- it
was in keeping with Mr. Johnson's ideas
of right for him to introduce the resolu
tion. Its passage will further endear
him to the people and those who want
to see the long-desired consummation of
their hopes without giving up all of
their patrimony. lie could not have
touched a more popular chord or one
that will produce greater acclaim, and
those who profit by it will honor his
name and sing his praises. As Mr. John
son is practically Governor of the Dis
trict of Columbia, what he says will
likely go and all of us will say "Amen.',
A favorable report has already been
made on the bill, which provides for a
ant, should he be forced to remain to
prosecute the defendant W. P. Wal
ton in Lexington Herald.
Loves His Adopted Home In
Payette, Idaho, Feb. 9, 1913.
I am sending enclosed a draft for my
subscription to the Climax and wish to
send greetings to my many old friends
and relatives in Richmond and Madison
county, where I was born and spent the
most of my life. It is through the col
umns of the Climax that we keep in
touch with events of the day in the old
county'of my nativity.
1 left Richmond twelve years ags to
seek my fortune west of the Rocky
Mountains, and as fate decreed. I set
tled down in the beautiful valley of Pay
ette, Idaho, and devoted my energies to
farming and fruit-raising, in which I
have "made good."
While this community is made up
of people from the Mississippi valley and
further East, yet only members of two
families besides my own are from Ken
lucky, and they from Lincoln coun'y.
This county has grown very rapidly
since I came here, as most things do in
the West. Whe e most of it was sage
brush then we now bave good roads on
most every section line, and on half sec
We have good schools, where the chil
dren are hauled to school at the expense
of the public. Many churches of many
denominations, telephone in most every
house, with wires carrying electricity
for lighting and power through the coun
try, besides daily mail service for every
body.. I do not wish o go back to Kentucky
to live again, but have a warm place in
my heart for the people there, and would
be g'ad to correspond with any who will
write to me. Vsry truly.
