A CLOCK WITH
A Relic of Revolutionary Times is
Now The Valued Souvenir
of a Marion. Citizen.
The oldest clock in Crittenden
county, perhaps a time-piece,
that has ticked out minute after
minute, hour after hour and
measured the allotted days of
generation after generation, --is
now the property of Deputy Sheriff
John T. Pickenp, of this city.
The clock was originally owned
by William G. Sickens, who was
a boldier of the Revolutionary
War, serving under the command
of General George Washington.
Mr. Pickens was a native
of South Carolina, but after
the close of the war of the Revolution
he came to Kentucky,
married a Miss Caldwell, settled
in Crittenden county on what is
now known as the William Lewis
farm, on Claylick creek, reared
his family and died at an old age
He had five children, John A.
Pickens, who was the grandfather
of John T., A. J., Joel A.

A. and Eliza Deboe. All of this

married; William W., Isreal H

who married James Calhoun, a
relative of John C. Calhoun, the
South Carolina statesman, and
afterwards lived in Paducah;
Handy, the youngest child,- who
married Miss Annie Stewart and
emigrated to Arkansas.
In 1838 the clock, which belong
ed to William G. Pickens, great
granaiatner ot John T., was
sold at a public sale and purchased
by Dr. Mickleberry Bris-
toe, who lived near Weston, and
who kept it until he died, when
it became the property of his
son, Ira Bristoe, who, at his
death, requested that the clock
be given to John T. Pickens. It
was transfered from the Bristoe
residence to the home of the
deputy sheriff, where it may be
both seen and heard at all hours,
day or night. It is quite a large
piece of furniture, as clocks go.

Its casing, its face and its hands
are all of wood, as are likewise
its wheels. It stands there grim

though it of course was ready

Marion's Musical Genius.
Marion with all of its other attainments
and people to be proud
of, now has a musical composer,
who is destined to win fame for
herself and our little city who
now claims her as its own by
adoption. We have received and
heard with great pleasure the
song "If Only" the music of
which was composed by Mrs.
Alice Maude Shelby Wilson, of
this city. The music has been
declared first-class by critics and
was published by a well known
Washington, D. C, publishing
firm who complimented the
young composer on her first product.
She recieved much encouragement
from Von Tobel
and other local musical experts.
Mrs. Wilson has another musical
composition ready for the
publishers and we hear its to be
dedicated to one of her best
friends, a Marion girl.

The Henderson Gleaner Says:
Here on Feby. 24th, 1913, at
8:30 A. M., the city of Hendrson
is full of tobacco, the first deliveries
of Association Tobacco,
1912 crop. I think it entirely
conservative to say from four to
five hundred wagons will be in
this town to-day.
Members are getting 33 1 3 per
cent of the amount of deliveries.
Or take it this way - if a mem
ber delivers today, or in the future
on the present contract, one
hundred dollars worth of tobac
co, a warehouse receipt will be
hsoed him for that amount, on
which will be credited $33.33,
the cash paid the member.
And when you come to think
about it, that is'nt so bad. Farmers
are getting today nearly as
much in cash as was paid them
by the Trusts in the days before
the Association, and the farmer
has two-thirds of his tobacco left
as evidenced by his warehouse
I am perfectly aware that I
will be charged with stating the
case too strongly. O, I don't
know when it is recalled what
Trusts docks and weights were
before farmers' interests were
guarded by an Association grader.
Speaking of warehouse receipts
a good member said only this
morning, "I have never failed
yet i n getting money on my
warehouse receipts. In several
instances I have gone to my bank
and requested loans and tendered
the bank a good, solvent

less to say, none of my endorsers
in the past six years have ever
lost a cent or been(in danger of
losing a cent, for in the final

direct from Owensbore. where
