Old newspapers for hle at this
Ill Lexington a few weeks ago
the Homo 'Phone bought out tho
Bell 'Phone. Citizens were pleas
ed, but it leaked out. that it was
n combination of tho two. The
rates were last week raised 25
per cent. The citizens of the
city.havo enjoined the companies
from the merger and will try to
annul the sale.
At Winchester about the same
time the Cumberland bought out
the homo 'Phono but to continue
to gouge the people kept both
phones agoing to .collect double
charges. The city council there
has taken up the matter and ad
vises patrons of the telephone to
pay for but. one 'phone. The
company says they were only
holding the two 'phones to make
ready for a forty thousand dollar
improvement. The people of
Winchester, however, are begin
ning to take the promises of the
big corporations with Fait now
that they have been stung o
much and doubtless will pay for
but one 'phone.

Owing to the continued illness
of fudge D. B, Redwine, there

In anticipation, of his resignition,
O. Hi Pollard, of Lexington, an
erstwhile citizen of Jackson, is

friends for the place in case

not Judge J. B. White and Hugh

sidered. They most- assuredly
are qualified and deserving.
