She has reached an advanced age an is very fteble, but her physicians think that, un less some unexpected change oc curs she will recover. Her friends every'where will rejoice to hear this. Mr. CLarlie Taylor is at the home of his brother, Senator Tay lor,attending his venerable mother, $vho has beeu so critically ill for several weeks. It is desired that notice should be given, that at the celebration of Washington’s birthday at Verona High Sclioel, Graphaphone music will be given by the splendid in strument of Mr. W. B. Rea. one of the School trustees. This graphaphone is a very large and hue oue and renders splendid music. He,has kindly lept it for the occasion. Our popular townsman, R. H. Roothe is still confined to his room by a protracted spell of plen jisy. All of our people would be glad to see him out once more. Ob, the snow: the tiful snow, • The sun slmne out and it had to •go. About seven o’clock last Sunday evening, a severe storm passed over our yillage which did con siderable dapiage in the way of blowing dowA trees, fences aud out houses and) unroofing business ^nscs. Ma/iy trees and fences pfere blown I a,own apd ip some parts of town, plank side walks were lifted up and blown consider able distance. Mr. George Dough erty’s barn was blown down ^and the stable aud sheds of Prank Uobinson were demolished and Crushed in Upon his horses and mules. These were not seriously injured. Many cedar and other ornamental trees were over-turned and blown considerable distance. The greatest damage was done to the business houses. The roofs were torn up and partially blown away on the houses of Messrs ). H. and J. S. Cobb, Clark Sc Walker Drug Co., W. S. Johnson & Sons and the town hall, which was bad ly damaged. The stocks of all these firms were damaged more or less, and had to be removed and protected from the drenching rain that fell during the storm. The cemetery was badly injured and several costly and beautiful monu ments were over-turned and brok en. The beautiful pavilion iu the center of the cemetery was blown down and badly wrecked. Our people living in the track of the storm, were somewhat exc'ted, but, ~ 1-3 __.. _1 r■ < I li uuuuj v» tig otaicu, x lit. damage was serious, however, and everybody is rejoicing that it was no worse. Dr. W C Spencer had a call just before the storm last Sunday night which carried him about four miles south of towu. He hit the storm or it hit him, (one or the other) aud he gives a trraphic description of how he and his pilot got along in the pitchy darkuess of the night. The way he says the trees, feuces aud other missels f^pw past him would make an old Cod fed prefer the rattle of the miunie bullets aud the bursting of the shells in battle to the doctor’s danger in the raging storm. Miss Carra Lowery is visiting relatives in Memphis and will be there for a mouth. Her friends at home will miss her greatly. Mrs. R D. Patrick and her children returned from a protract ed visit to relatives in Arkansas and Missouri, la->t Saturdiy. H -r host of friends were greatly re j >iced to greet them upon their re turn.

Fcx, of this place, having announced himself a candi date for Governor at this late day I deem it but justice to myself to submit to you a statement for your ennsideraf inn and indnrnifinl and T am willing to trust to your fairness for a just yerdicton the issues in volved. In tire early part of 1896 Mr. Fox and myself were both avowed candidates for the position in Con gress made vacant by the promo tion of Hon. II. D. Money to the Senate. Mr. Fox came into my office to so adjust the matter that we might nQt be candidates against each other. After some conversa tion I asked him* what method of adjustment he suggested and lie answered he would leave it to me to say. Thereupon 1 told him since he was generous enough to leaye it to me to say how it should be adjusted, 1 would withdraw in his favor. And pursuant to this agreement I published a card with drawing in his favor. Sometime afterwards when I was in the legis lature at Jackson I received a let ter from Mr. Fox stating that my friends in a number of the conn ties were still -withholding their support from him with the expec tation that I wag or would be a candidate and in this letter from Mr. Fox he requested me to write to my friends notifying them that I was not in the race. And pursu ant to this request from him I pub lished the following additional let ter: Jackson, Feb 20, 1896. Editor of the Clarion Ledger: There seems to be an impressiou with some of my friends through out the State and more especially in the Fourth Congressional Dis t;ict, that I am, or will hen candi date for congress in the coming election. Uy way of explanation, it is propel for me to say, that at one time, I did intend making the race, but my friend, Hon. A. F. Fox, of Clay, having announced himself as a candidate for the po sition in question, I decline to rurf against him. We are citizens of the same town, members of the surae bar, and the most cordial re lations have always existed lre tween us, and. for these reasons, I think my friends will fully justify me in the course I have adopted. I am nut now or will be a candi date for congress in the coming election. This has heeu fully un derstood between me and Mr Fox from the beginning. If I were in the race, he would not oppose me, and I allow no man to be more gen erous to me than I am to him. I am deeply grateful to my friends for their great kindness in this matter, and shall always strive to be worthy of the esteem they have manifested in their desire to place me in this exalted position. Mr. Fox is one of the foremost men of the State and well worthy of any position in the gift of the people, and has my unqualified support in this race. FRANK A. CRITZ In the face of these facts I sub mit it to you, the people, to decide whether Mr. Fox’s conduct in thus entering this race after I have been in the canvass for several months is generous or fair. Mr. Fox states that “recently, however, there has been such a geneial demand from every sec tion of the state for my candidacy as to me amounts to a command which I have no right to disre gard.” I would like to ask you, each in dividual voter, if you joined in this demand or were in any way con sulted about Mr. Fox’s candidacy If there has been any such demand from West Point or Clay couhty, 1 have never heard of it. Mr Fox in his announcement seem-' t< ' Inn!' that the public pn<*d »ud. hi * services, to which I would reply that this is a matter about which i man is very easily deceived. As to whether or not there is rue’ a general demand for the seryj of Mr. Fox and as to whether or * t the public good demands his ser vices at this time, I desire to leave to the verdict of the people t *h » ballot box in the coming prin re-. I have an abiding fsith p th » justice of the people and be!lev" they will demand fair play of those who seek position at their har. ». Thanking my friends all over the State for their cordial and loyal suppo t and assurances of continu ed support, 1 am, Very respectfully, FRANK A. CRITZ. Democratic County Execu tive Committee.
