t . ;r. McDougaT; _ K(MTOH ANIi fKlll'NIKTOK WeilncHduy, Nov. 14, 11MM1. Horn v as re-elected Governor of Kansas. 1 iik County High School pro position carried in Tyler county but was defeated in Kilchie. Spkakkk ci. Cannon goes back tc* Congress from tne Dan ville, 111., District, l>y one of his old-time majorities. It turns out that Beckham l»< ats McCreary in the Democratic I’rim-j ary in Kentucky for C. S. Senator about four thousand. Hager won out for the (iovernorwhip nomina tion. Reciprocitu. It has pleased the voters of the sovereign State < f Ohio to elevate to high office a native sou of West Vir ginia. Hon. Cartni Thompson, who was by the* result of Tuesday’s election chosen secretary ot slate lor the great Buckeye common wealth, was born and spent his boyhood days on a hillside farm in Wayne county, not more than twenty-live miles from the present site of Huntington. The fact that be has ri*en to eminence in the state of bis adoption, will be grat ifying to West Virginians. Then, there are those who feel that Ohio owes West Virginia this recogni tion. In making Mr. 'Thompson secretary ot state, Ohio citizens in a measure give return for honors the people of West Virginia have conferred upon native born Ohioans One of the ablest governors West Virginia has ever had, Hon. A. B. I White, was born in Ohio Senator N. B. Ssotl, whose services have conferred much honorable distinc | lion upon West Virginia, was like i wise born on Ohio soil. It was] only to be hoped that Mr. 'Thomp son, as the representative of West Virginia in Ohio, will be as accept able to the people of that State as Governor Wnite and Senator Scott have been to the people of West ^ irginia. 'Those who know Colonel 'Thompson, ami who know of his v sturdy ancestry will readily believe \ that he will acquit himself greatly to bis own credit and to the honor of the state of his birth.—Hunting ton Dispatch. Wayne county people make their mark and are recognized for their worth wherever they go. rtew&DaDer vs. iown. A newspaper rarely gets full credit for the amount of benefit it is to a town. It is seen in the fact ^ that all towns without one or more newspapers are not up to the stand ard of towns possessing them ; and while there is a mutual interest be tween newspaper and town, the for mer gives more than it receives, al ways providing it is the right sort of a newspaper. Local advertisers ought to be glad of the privilege ol having a good, live newspaper and ought to make liberal use of that privilege, rather than take space and pay their bill, grudgingly. It is true that merchants get along fairly well without advertising but that they do so is largely because the adver tising of others bring business to the town. Let the newspaper be starved out by scant patronage —compelled to go out of business —and every interest of th# town L would suffer severely. Business, nowadays, cannot be measured with business twenty ^Hrears or more ago. Then each 5^£om minify traded at its wn stores, B^fcacn community lived and mow d IH^krgely within itself.

It is quite evident that the new 'ax laws in West Virginia are sat isfactory to a great majority of the people. The fact s. it is useless to argue against* the benefit of these laws in the fate of the simple truth • bat almost iveryhody is paying less taxes now than formerly. It was a great mistake on the part of i he Democrats to lug the tax lavvs into the | resent campaign—Shep 1 herdstow 'i Register. The Register is one Democratic paper in this Stale that talks sensi bly in regard to the new tax laws. We are satisfied that on account of their taxes having been reduced many Democrats at the recent elec tion voted the ticket of the party that made their taxes lower. This fact was proven by the Republican | gains in the farming districts of our sister county of Cabell. We j feel confident that the result would have been different in this county if all the tax payers had known that the new laws had so materially re. duced their tax burdens. Only a few of the tax-payers had a chance to sec their 1906 tax tickets before the election. The result of the election in this county two years hence will lie different. fl Freak of a Child. One of the most remarkable1 human curiosities of which tin*! medical world has knowledge, came to life at Moundsville recently. Mrs. Margaret Cullom, wife of John Cullom, gave birth to twins, which from the waist down are one. The twins, :f such they can he call ed, arc twins only from the abdo men up. Below that all the limbs and organs arc such as b long to any well developed inale child. Kach child is well developed and of equal proportions and neither has any more claim than the other. The only deformity, aside from the dual body, is a dwarf leg which springs from the hip near the base of the spine. The child is possessed of two ehe.-ts and all the organs of the chest, two heads with organs perfectly formed, and four perfectly formed arms with hands and fingers like any other infant. The two trunks branch off independently at the upper pari of the abdomen. They face one another squarely and if they live they will be looking each other in the face. The child, double child, or twins, is about the weight of the average child when born and is per fectly healthy. O', ing to her weakened condi tion, the mother has been unable to give her offspring nourishment Or. States, the attending physician, administered to it in small quanti ties a little sweetened water and whisky. The liquid was taken through both mouths just the same as though two children were being fed. The two heads and all the chest organs and limbs act independ ently of each other. • One head would cry while the other one was quiet and then again they would both cry at the same time. The voices were slightly different, one being a little more masculine than the other. The features of one head are strongly masculine, and the other slightly feminine. Or J. J. States, who delivered ‘-he child, said nothing about it at the time except to members of his profession. The report of the | birth became public late the next morning and the newa spread like wild fire, being the chief topic of conversation upon the street. Prac tically all the physicians of the city visited the Cullom home in a body and examined the child. They all pronounced the infant to be in a healthy condition and none was so hold as to venture the opin ion that it had not a good chance I of life. i iir 1’iftrnm* m»vp nppn miJCn eP)* barrassed on account of the atten tion their infant ha* attracted. ! They refuse to answer any ques tion* concerning themselves or the child, except those asked by the at tending nhvsician. They absolutely refuse to allow one physician to take a photograph of the child and were careful not to expose it in a manner that would afford an opportunity for a snap ■hot. Mr and Mrs. t’ullom have been married about a year, this being their first child. The father is twenty four years of age and the , mother eighteen.
