At the convention held in Cam
den Tuesday, V. E. Gill was nom
inated for State Senator from the
26th district, without opposition.
The campaign will soon be on in
Tennessee and the democratic and
republican nominees will shell the
woods with oratory. It's all one
way in the Volunteer State demo
cratic. Here the republicans waist
their words on the air. They know
iuu wen tneir election is impossi
ble, but they are compelled to keep
up appearances, looking for their
reward to a republican president
and his chances are about as slim
and flimsy as "theirn," hence they
are ia a bad row of stumps.

Editor Bulletin Please allow
me a tew lines. As the election is
now over, we feel confident that
our law makers will do an in their
power to bring about better times
than we have at present. We need
laws that will protect the poor man
the rich can take care of them
selves. We who live over in the
sticks don't know much, though we
believe a heap, we can not see
bow the stock law would be a bene
fit to the poor man. We can make
fences cheaper thau we can dig
ponds and bore wells. If a man has
more land than he can fence, let him
sell to some one who will fence it
he can find a buyer. It's a great
trouble to draw water for stock.
We are glad to have a vote on the
ence question. Let us never hunt
trouble, it wiil find us soon enough.
Give us schools like we once had
and let all the stock run out. That
is what we will vote tor. lhe
harder the fight, the brighter the
crown. ix. J. dorris.

There's an old tavern near James
town, Va., about which this in
teresting story is told:
"John Randolph of Roanoke"
stopped over night at the tavern and
the kindly landlord, knowing his
distinguished guest, attempted to
draw him into conversation. Ran
dolph was non-talkative. " Next
morning the gentleman was ready to
resume his journey and the landlord
ventured to ask:
"Which way do you travel, Mr.
"Sir?" asked Randolph, with a
look of displeasure.
"Which way are you traveling?"
I asked, said the landlord.
"I have paid you my bill?"
"Do I owe you anything?"
"Not a cent, sir."
"Then, 1 am going just where 1
please; do you understand?"
Mr. Randolph drove off, but soon
sent one of his servants back to the
inn to inquire which of the forks of
road he should take to carry him to
"Go back and tell Mr. Randol
ph," answered the landlord, "that
he does not owe me a cent and
don't give a d n which road he
takes nor where it takes him."
It is said that brimstone and sul
phur could be knocked out of the
air in that section of Virginia when
