, N-JVJCR 27 .' To .say the least Gov. Wilson tnah."8 hin speeches off hand. Ho rnay be called on to explain some ofhi3 aphorisms, but you may count on him making the explan ations. ' , VOLUME XI. ml ' .i 3 mwwm . Pre ident-elect Wi'.ion slept in the same r.om Saturday hipht that he did M "ears ao when the c'd bird upset her basket. It wss a strictly reminiscent night.v His mind went back to the hour when he brought his first equall. . Sentences were pronounced on the 33 Jynamitcr3 by . the' judge Monday, Ryan, the head of the Union, got 7 years, and a number G yerrs, while sentence- on, C were suspended. Thus ends the great criminal trial of dynamiters. "They were sent to Leavenworth prison Monday night. J. The jury brought xnsa vrdict of guilty against S8 of the 40 dynamiters in the U. S. Court at Indianapolis Saturday. This has been tha most noted and far reaching trial ever held in a crim- inai ,u. b. vjourt. it ;is a nara blow to Union labor unless the organization cuts loose from their former criminal , plans of 'dyna miting and O'jher outrages. There are thousands of the union who never believed suci things were being carried on, - but many of the leaders xlid and will now suf fer for their crimes. L The holidays of 1912 are record ed in history. ' The past with Its successes and failures; with its happiness" and sorrows; with it3 hopes an" disappointments, has come to all. - Whether in review ing the past.plea&mt recollections or sad experience .come to one, they are only so much in life that cannot be changed, and can only be made useful as lessons for, the future. The dead ashes of the past events are only useful for the is the day o! hope and trust: To day is the day of resolve and ef fort. There is much ' in life for every one. Every man, woman and child is a portion of the great machine of humanity. Each though small in the general make up, is an important factor in hu man creation. Too many, do, not value themselves as highly as . they should. . -A modest realiza tion of one's importance in the makeup of humanity tends to cul tivate habits and make character in harmony with the best in hu man nature., '-u:r ;' 3 Loans i.

JNotary mblic Letter From Fowlkes Editor Independent - - Here I come with a few dots from the vicinity of Fowlkes. We are having fine weather for December. Crop gathering is juat about complete. The crop was a lit tle short in our section but the ad vance in the price over last year al most made up the shortage, i I sold last year 24,160 pounds of - cotton-f from 21 acres for $806.40: this year, I sold 18,650 pounds from about the same amount of land for $790.05. Last season I paid 75c per hundred and board for picking; this , season I paid 75c per hundred without board. Health, with a few exceptions, is fairly good thus far. My wife's health hasn't been good all year. ; Our little 5-year-old daughter has been in' deli cate health for some time., v ' Our new pastor, Brother liaCammy, filled his regular appointment at this place Sunday. A large crowd was present. We welcome Brother Mc Cammy in his new field and look on hint as an able divine. ? -io ; ; This is hog-killing weather, but hogs are somewhat scarce. A strange disease struck them this summer and thinned them out to count. .Some called it consumption. They would linger for 4 or 6 weeks sometimes, and seldom one would get well. Meat from the grocery is selling at from 14 to 20c per pound. s 7, : ' The old McNairy families in this part are getting along , fine,! namely: J. H.
