We would call the attention of
our readers to "Stories of the'
as wef! as
Town," published elsewhere in
this issue. It gives a bit of
Marion's early history that will
be inteiesting to say the least.
Wilson's Lucky Year.
President-elect Wilson greeted
1913 as his "lucky year." He
i : i.. ..,.. ,ii:ut,i .;...
is iunciis ueiiKiueu ul my cum-
bination by addition, multiplica
tion or substraction that will,
produce his lucky number.
"Thirteens have always been
running thru my life in connection
with some good fortune,"
he said. The year of his nomination
to the Presidency produced
thirteen by adding the numerals
1-9 1-2. The name Woodrow
Wilson contains just thirteen
letters. He was thirteen years
a professor at Princeton. He
was elected the thirteenth president
of the university, and he
presided over about 1,300 students.
Even the "31st" Presi
dential term which which begins!
on March 4 produce the lucky
number by reversal. He will be
the twenty-eighth President of
the country, a combination
which the President-elect at first
considered baffling. "And then
there are two others," said Governor
Wilson. "Not only will I
be taking office in 1913, but the
Electorial College meets on January
13 this year." Exchange.
Would Be a Hard Man to Beat.
J. Forest Porter, of Webster
county, who has served in the
legislature as state senator and
representative, and earned the
title of "watchdog of the treasury,"
is the only announced
candidate for the Democratic
nomination for state senator
from the Webster-Crittenden-Caldwell
district. Senator Porter
is a strong man in his section
and he will be a hard man to
beat. He is the arch-enemy of
appropriation measures, and during
his legislature experience
has put the final "crimp" in
many of them. Louisville Times.
We are for any man who will
put a stop to appropriations,
which went far beyond the states
revenues during the last legislature.

Record-Press, Dear Editor;
You will find enclosed one
dollar for which send me your
paper. I arrived at this place,
Nov. 27, 1912. It don't seem
like winter time at all, Every
thing is growing nicely; gardens
are looking thrifty and fine.
The groves of grape fruit, tangerine,
and oranges are certainly
I have been to Cocoa Winter
Park and Orlando and they are
pretty places inkeed.
A crowd of us went to the
beach, Sunday, Nov. 15, and
went in bathing: it was a great
sight to me and much pleasure.
The climate is ideal. I have
only seen one frost. The sun is
shining bright this morning and'
the children are going barefooted.
Wishing the Record-Press success
and all a happy New Year,
I remain yours Sincerely,
Percy E. Threlkeld.
