Southern Illinois was visited by the most severe snow storm of the season this week. Snow was drifted over the railroad trackfi and traffic was suspended. The passenger train due in Winslow at 3:08 Wednesday afternoon did not come at all. All trains were delayed. Southern Indiana had a severe touch of winter, Wednesday being about the worst day of the winter. It is said that the public has been skinned out of a million dollars by buying Florida land that is under water. Unscruplous land agents have advertised peo^ pie into buying land as a safe place to invest their savings tmd a place to invest in truck farming. Buying land on the mail order plan is even worse than buying household necessities and farm machinery either of which is bad enough. Persons who want to invest in land will do better by buying at home where they can look after it and where, if they attempt to farm, knowing nothing about farming, it will not bo such a long walk back .home. Mail order buying is a bad practice and hurts the community where it is indulged in but the people gener-eraUy are getting their ^e teeth cut and are demanding t^see the goods before parting with their money. The fellow who gave us such a round because the market report was omitted in last week’s paper will find this feature back in it’s accustomed place today. President Taft’s message to congress on the liability act will be found alongside the general news notes in today’s paper. “Strugglers” is a dandy story to be found in today’s paper. All about how to not spend money under the corrupt practices act is another feature of this issue. The S. S. lesson, the patterns and the county news are all in this issue as usual.

Sallie Snyder, wife of Harléy H. Snyder, died Thursday afternoon at. their home in Petersburg after an extended illness. She was fiity-four years old and was one of Petersburg’s most highly .respected ladies. She was a member of the M. E. church. The funeral service was conducted at the family j-esidence Sunday afternoon, the remains being interred in the Walnut Hills cemetery. There are a fe\y people in every town that are mad when any other person is making a dollar. It is not the right spirit. Just because you can’t get it all don’t kick when some other person is making good. It’s a mean disposition-get rid of it. If you can’t get it out of your system any other way, take some pills. Many times it is your liver that is affected. We have got ^some of that kind here— unfortunately, every community has. We are sorry it is true, but it can’t be helped. The very best thing is to pay no attention to such people and the majority move right along helping each other—and at the same time, building up the community. The am Bryan Hisgen, • son of and ^rs. “Billy” Hisgen, of Pe-urg, died Saturday night of Ltkcmia, He was fifteen years an4-" was a good boy.

He was seventy and was a good citizen fill be mourned by the |ty in which he has lived Four children survive [rs. Harve Carter, Mrs. Why can’t everybody in Winslow be a booster like they are out west. When a man from the east drops into a western town everybody at once constitutes himself a booster and the fellow thinks that’s the greatest town on earth when the fact of the matter is not one in ten thousand is half as good and does not offer half the advantages that Winslow offers. But it is such a relief to get away from the constant din of that little hammer that he at once takes up with the town and 'the people. Let’s every mother’s son of us put away our little hammers and be boosters and watch the old town grow this summer. Don’t let’s wait for the other fellow to lay his hammer on the shelt but let’s take it as a personal matter.and bury our own so deep that it can never be resaurected. This town possesses every advantage in the world to make it a bity and if we could throw away the hammers for awhile it would demonstrate the fact to all. famous will case tried in the Vanderburg and Posey county circuit courts wherein Mattie Hannum sought to probate the will of Marshall McMurren, has been venued to Pike county and will come up next term. McMur-ran was a tramp. He stopped at a house where the Hannum woman was a Servant and asked for something to eat. She took him into the kitchen and fed him. The man of the house found him there and cursed the servant for letting him in and ordered him out. At the next house he asked for a pencil and a piece of paper. He was given a piece of brown paper on which he wrote his will, leaving to the servant girl $40,000. The members of the family witnessed the will which he took back to the girl, telling that it might some day be worth som^ death thing to her. After his the banks advertised for relatives of the man and the woman offered her will for probate in the Vanderburg circuit court. Half brothers of the dead tramp started a suit to set the will aside. It has been fought out twice and will be a hard fought case in our court next term. The case has attracted attention all over the state. Alex ThAmas and Mrs. E. H. Harrell, all / of Petersburg, and one son, Fr^nk Hillman, of Evansville. His was a Christian character that will be/ missed. He was a devout wmen^er of the Presbyterian church. The funeral service was cbnd icted at the church in Pe-tersturg Sunday afternoon by Rev, Orton. The remains were laid jto rest in Walnut Hills cemetery. “P^lly” Sappenfield died Saturday imoming at the home of her granddaughter, Mrs. Ross Meadows,! in Petersburg, of diabetes. Deceased was born in Daviess county, North Carolina and was 73 yeari bid. She ”came with her parents to Pike county wlien she was' but a young girl. She was 6ne of a family of seven chil-i dren; but one, Mrs. William Fick-lin, sf Petersburg, surviving. Her maidjen name was “Polly” Beck, her-father being Daniel Beck. ,When she was 24 years old she married David Sappenfield who precéeded her lo' the grave by ten Irears. She was the mother of séven children, three of whom are left to mourn the loss of a Christian mother. The remaining children are Rev. D. R. Sappenfield, of Stafford, Kansas, Mrs. Charley Stubblefield, of Wilkins, Oklahoma, and Harry Sappenfield. of Madison township. Deceased spent most of her life in Madison township where she was loved and hohored by all who kpew her. When eighteen years old she united with the U. B. church and lived a consistent member until the day of her de§th. She held membership in the Fair-view church in    Madison township where the    funeral service was held Monday noorning, Rev. Batrum, the pastor, conducting the service. The remains were laid to rest in^ the Stewart cem-ehery by the side of her husband. “When little patches of snow are left on the north side of buildings and in fence corners after the main body of the snow has melted and gone away two or three days then you may look for more snow,” is an old weather prophecy that held good this week. For several days the main body of the snow had been gone and mud was everywhere. Old “weather prophets” freely predicted that we would have more snow soon. Tuesday afternoon their prediction came true when snow began falling and covered the earth with a beautiful (?) whiter coat. But we must all re-xa($mber that our s^x weeks and WTB will have-no spring weather until the six weeks are fully up. Assessors of the state will start out March 1st to list personal property. A new order is out that notes secured by mortgage will be taken at 75 per cent, of their face. This is correct. Notes secured by mortgage should not be taken for more than the real estate on which the mortgage is given. Precious ^ little real estate in Pike county is assessed at half its value. One pays dollar for dollar on money and about 50c on the dollar on real estate and real estate is the safest every day in the year. But there is little cause for complaint about the assessment on money in this county as those who have money don’t have it on March 1st. The following item was sent from Petersburg to the city papers this week, the truth of which we cannot vouch for: Repeated jail sentences having had no ¿effect on George Denning, a local coal miner, further than to make him fond of jail, Marshal Whitney was at a loss to know how to handle the most-arrested man in the town. It was too cold to duck the habitual drunkard in a nearby pond and besides it would spoil the town children’s skating place. He has never stayed away when ordered to get out of the town. Finally, with the approval of the citizens, the local peace officer yesterday secured a heavy whip from a hardware store and gave Denning a severe horse whipping. Denning immediately left. The law passed by the Indiana legislature of 1907, giving druggists the right to sell vinous and spiritious liquors in quantities not less than a quart at a time for medical purposes only upon the written prescription of a reputable physician in active practice, or upon the written and signed application of any other person who is known to the druggist and who is known by him not to be a person in the habit of using intoxicating liquors as a beverage, was construed perhaps for the first time, in the Pike county circuit court by Judge O, M. Wel-born, sitting as special judge. He passed upon an agreed statment of facts ¡which showed that George Ashby, |a druggist of Petersburg, sold to Nathan Ellis, on a written prescription signed by a reputable physician in active practice for medical purposes, and no other, a lialf-pint of intoxicating liquor. The contension of the defendant Nvas that if the Liquor was sold fori medical purposes an dno other, that he had a right to sell less than! a quart, but Judge Wel-born held that the druggist had no such rigjht. Judge Welborn fixed the fine! of Ashby at $50. The case will propably be appealed. If the highpr court sustains the decision oí Judge Welborn it will practically .overrule a line of decisions rendered some years ago which held that any one might sell intoidcating liquors for medicinal punK>ses in cases of emergency. The high price of land and the increase in the value of the farm equipment make it very necessary that the farmer obtain the very best yields if he is to realize a reasonable rate of interest on his investment. The yield of corn, the most important crop, can be increased as much as twenty pe^ cent by eliminating jthe seed ears that are weak in vitality before planting time. A few figures con-^rYaj^iygiy táade .^ill show J^e vaíáé^cpí'the" germinator.* The labor involved in testing enough corn to plant a 40 acre crop should not amoui^^to more than $3.00. Now, if the 40 acres would aver-» age ' 50 bushels per acre with a stand of 70 per cent, that usually secured without testing the seed, a stand of 90 per cent which could be expected from testing the seed would produce a yield of 65 bushels per acre, an increase of 600 bushels on the entire crop. The increase at 50 cents ' per bushel would amount to $300 as a consequent of investing $3.00 in labor to test the seed before planting, William C. Richardson died Monday night at his home near Spurgeon after an extended illness. Deceased Was one of the best known characters in Southern Pike county. He Was born in Warrick county, December 8, 1830. He was the second son of Edward P. and Eliza Fleener Richardson. Elder J. W. Richardson, .of Madison township, was the oldest child and the only surviving member of a family of fourteen children, “Uncle” Bill left home when nineteen years old and began to do for himself. In 1852 he bought his first farm which he sold when he took charge of the Pike county poor asylum. After his term of service was out at the poor asylum he purchased the farm south of Winslow where he spent most of his life, selling this only a few years back and taking up his Residence in Monroe township. He was twice married. December 5, 1850 he married Caroline Parker, daughter of Lorenzo D. Parker. To this union was born twelve children, four of whom survive him. The surviving ones are Mrs. Monroe Thompson, Mrs. Harris Thompson, Mrs. F. C. Russ and Edward P. Richardson, Jr. His first wife died some sixteen years ago. Some time after this he married Jane Sturgeon, a widow, who survives him. He was a devout member of the Regular Baptist church, holding membership in Pleasanlville. In politics he was a Democrat. He was one of the best known men in this township where he lived so long. He was an upright citizen and a Christian gentleman.

The remains were laid to rest in the Pleasantville cerne» tery by the side ol his fbrst wife. _____
