Dr Jackman was born in or near
Creelsboro in Russell county Ken
tucky April 2 1844 and there he lived
the greater part of a long and most
useful life In the capacity of practic
ing physician he was well known
through ut several counties in all of
which he will long be remembered both
the attentive doctor and the kind
friend The passing generation and the
one now in its prime will alike mourn
the death of one of those whom no one
was more esteemed by those who knew
For many years a Mason the funer
services were conducted under the
auspices of that order and the remains
interred in Elida cemetery
The deceased is survived by a widow
and 3 sons all of whom were present
his death To the survivors his
friends extend the hand of sympathy
parting in silent understanding
There is no Death what seems so is
This life of mortal breath

The Light Plant
The people of Columbia were very
much gratified last Friday night when
the electric lights again come on after
the town had been in darkness for six
weeks Messrs Ballard Murrell the
owners of the plant sent the dynamo
to Louisville where it remained under
the care of a skilled electrician for one
month When it was returned it was
the means of furnishing stronger and
brighter lights than at any time in the
past It is an admitted fact that Co
lumbia can not well get along without
an electric light plant and it is also
the general opinion of this community
that every family who is able should <
support the enterprise The proprie
ors have been at considerable expense
and they are soon to make a greater
outlay of money in building an electric
house in which to keep the plant and
they should be met with prompt and
substantial encouragement We hope
that those who are not taking lights
will apply for them at once It isan
