Gas Department Phone M. 8705 _ Anniston Man Named Pro ! bate Judge of Calhoun County Yesterday # _ Birmingham friends of J. .1. Arnold are elated in that he has received the ap | Pointment at the hands of Governor O'Neal to the position of probate judge , of Calhoun county, in the contest for the vacancy, caused by tire death of tire late Judge \\ . H. Cooper. Birming ham has been deeply interested. Willie the opinion lias l>eeii gereal that Arnold i would receive the appointment, the fact that the governor gave serious consider ation to the claim of John S. Mooring served to make the situation one of ex citement. Judge Arnold is one of the lew men who have been appointed twice by one governor to the same position. In 1911. as is remembered. Emmet F. Crook, then probate judge of Calhoun, resigned. The legislature, in which Mr. Arnold was a representative, and the floor leader of tlie administration, received the ap pointment to the vacancy. At the ex piration of that term he was opposed and defeated fop re-election by W. ff Cooper. Two weeks ago Judge Cooper died in Birmingham, and yesterday Gov ernor O'Neal against appointed Judge Aron Id to the vacancy. A warm fight was made for and against Judge Arnold. John s. Moor ing, now in the employ of the state, was, in the gubernatorial campaign of 1910, one of the staunchest supporters that Governor O'Neai claimed in Calhoun county. Tie was an applicant for the position and his friends rallied to his support. VatMsnll.. 4 1. C . . •.iHuugm iu near on the governor the fact that whereas he himself, carried Calhoun county over Col. H. 8. I). Mallory by a majority .if about .'WO. his appointee, Judge Arnold. In seeking re-election, was defeated, after a strenuous and exciting campaign bv a majority which ranged between jin) and 300 votes. Ah to whether or not .Judge Arnold, admittedly eminently qualified for. the position, could, after the completion of the term of the late Judge Cooper, held his own against a formidable opponent, was. it is understood, one of the ques tions given consideration by the ap pointive power. In connection with the Calhoun situa tion, Interesting gossip was to the effect that had W. i. McCaa, a prominent res ident of Anniston, expressed a desire for tlie prohate Judgeship, lie would have re ceived that ■plum." Mr. McCaa. as is remembered, man aged O'Neal's campaign In Calhoun county, but since that time, according to gossip, lias had a break with the chief executive. It is understood that Mr. Mc Caa applied for the Judgeship following I lie resignation of Judge Crook, and that when tile governor named Mr. Arnold, the old friendship became strained. T.ater, McCaa was appointed to serve on tlie governor's staff, hut tills appoint ment was declined. Mr. McCaa, who Is also one of the best known men of the state, was not an applicant for service during the un expired term of Judge Cooper, although, as stated, It Is generally said that had he applied, he would have been favored with the position.

The attorney general received notice of the hearing ibis morning. The application of the railroad com pany for a supersedeas is somewhat similar to the course pursued some weeks ago when the carrier asked for a restraining order pending the de termination of tile case *by three fed eral judges.

Attorney General Brickell will prob ably be assisted in presenting the state's case by Judge Samuel D.

Resemble a Camel Western sheep. according' to the United States forest service, outdo cam els by long odds in the matter of going great lengths of time without water. Sheep on I lie Nebo national for est in Utah go four and a half months without water except ror such mois ture as they get from the dew and the juices of forage plans, says an exchange. — Crazing sheep on a rang” entirely destltue of water is a recent innova tion due to the increasing demand for forage and the efforts of the forest officer to find a place on the forest ranges for all the stock that can safely he admitted. The area on the Nebo which has now proved usable by sheep Is high and rocky, a portion of it being above timber line, and is has neither springs nor streams of sufficient size or accessibility to be used for stock watering purposes. The grazing sea son lasts from June 15 to October 31, and during this period of four and a half months the animals do noi get a drink. Under such conditions, however, tin sheep have done extremely well, and last year's lambs from this range had an average weight at the cose of tin season of 68 pounds on the Chicago market, which was rather above th^ norma weigkht from that vicinity. In one area on the Targhee fores' in Idaho sheep get water ory tvvi < I during the four months' summer graz-I Ing season. There is no water on the range, hut the sheep are driven to .i nearby stream owed down the moun tain side. Lambs from this ranr w eighed 65 pounds on the Chicago mar ket. |j| ^ llHlMnwwllllliinMTawililililiniB11 mwi iliiwii— A factory Bible class vespers meeting; loung womens ihnstian Association Society (Contluued From Plge Sis) York last week for a brief visit to Bir mingham friends, have decided to spend i month in Cullman before going hack, Miss Humphrey to resume her study or voice. * » * Mrs. J.
