Ttie Nevada County Wekly Picayune
was 14 years old yesterday. Its present
owner Mr C. R. Andrews, lias guided
and directed its course for the past 17
years. It lias weathered some mighty
storms in days gone by, but backed
up by the honest yeomanry of Nevada
County, tin* P'cayune has pursued a
positive policy all the way through,
and enters upon the 45th year of its
busy life a bigger and better newspaper
than ever before It has tried to
serve the tiest interests of the Democra
tic party on all occasions—standing
firmly fo rthe upbuilding and develop
ment of Nevada County, the happiness
and prosperity of all her people.
"There may lx* those who will dispute
that we fought u good fight, but none
will deny that we have kept the faith.”
Kor the measure of success allotted to
the Picayune, its owner is profoundly
thankful, and as evidence of his keen
appreciation of a rapidly growing pat
ronage, he means to make the Picayune
of 1921 a newspaper of which every
citizen may feel justly proud.
Instead of once a weke, the Picay
une will come to you 6 times a week.

Vincennes. Ind—My dear friend: It
is indeed with deep sadness and regret
I anonrtce to you the passing of our
old and estimable friend into the shades
of evening twilight and the purple va
pors of Ponemah. The echo of the final
toll that marks his going yet mingles
with the midnight air. J. Bahrli-Korrn
is no more, and with him in joint com
munion has gone his old friend and
trusted diciple Mr. P. Rooney.
You and I can only bow our heads in
silence, my friend, for the comanlou
of our old festivities, and the solace of
our bygone sorrows. His presence
mingles with all those little occasions
enduring dearest in our memories; his
the comradeship of that Fairyland of
our Youth, from which we now are ever
exiled. His sparkle and his flavor gave
a radienee to the candle lights, lent a
charm to the music, and tinged the
cheeks and warmed the lips we used to
love. His was the key to the arbor of
Romance; his spell wove the witchery
in the moonl’ght and the magic in tin*
Firefly’s lantern.
He was the companion of kings, the
i delight of queens, ami the friend of
knaves. He has been the inspiration of
poets, the muse of authors ami the toy
of fair women None more proud, none
more democratic; the palace and the
hovel alike knew his footsteps. He
fought more battles than all the famous
generals, gave forth more eloquence
; thun all the famed orators.
H s was an old lineage coming down
from the vaguest antiquity; among his
family retainers he numbered the con
querors of the world. He broke the
power of Alexander and took the head
of Holofernes. and stripped the power
of noble Antony.
Many are named for his noble station.
Mr. Lemmen Kehstrak and .1 Makey
Jingrer. being held in high esteem, but
I the former on aceout of his German
name probably will not be considered.
Mr. B Vatix is well thought of. but
whoever he Is and wherever found, his
can never be the power, or the glory
or the strength of the noble John.
Let us lower him In silence to the
j tomb of Recollection, ’mid the droop
ing willows where the woodbine twinefh
and the whangdoodle walletli. and the
tweetweet singeth forevermore.
Sadly yours,
