The Monroe County Court ap
pointed Ralph W. Nolen as sheriff
to nil the unexpired term of his
father F. M. Nolen. This is a most
excellent appointment and has the
endorsement of the citizens. The
new sheriff is fully acquainted with
the duties of the office and in his
hands the office will receive the
same careful management as it did
under the guidance of the late F. M
Nolen. He was fearless in the dis
charge of his duties and did his
work as he wanted to do it regard
less of what others might say. He
was an honest, honorable citizen
and made an excellent officer. His
son Ralph will be found doing the
same until the expiration of his
term next January.
