Mr. L. G. Harris lias been olocted

on tho Democratic party of the West nnd

is always going, nlways talking, always

Democrats to throw up his hat for Urcoloy
and Brown, and is now boiling over with

About n year nud u half ngo n negro

nnd Arresting tho unhung wolf sent him to
Pulnski county jail, whero ho is now
safely housed to tako his turn nt tho next

Lawronco Bird, who murdered n mnn by
