From the Lyons Press: "The Williamson supervisor case entitled Alson B. Covert vs. Frank M. Gordon, a litigated contest to decide who of the two parties involved had been legally elected to the office of supervisor of that town at the election held in November, 191, has been decided. Covert and Gordon were opposing candidates. The latter received the greater number of votes and was granted a certificate. Mr. Covert contested the seat upon the ground that Mr. Gordon was school trustee at the time of the election. There is a statute expressly forbidding the holding of these offices by the same man. Mr. Gordon did not resign the school trustee until after the election. Mr. Covert alleged that Mr. Gordon did hold the two offices for a time. Justice Clark in supreme court upholds Attorney E. W. Hamn's contention that under the statute such double holding was impossible. The decision was handed down last week. The opinion holds that Mr. Gordon as school trustee accepted the nomination for supervisor the office of trustee became vacant automatically."

Fred Taylor had a serious experience last Sunday in trying to lead a heifer which had never had a halter on before. The heifer was a strong and vigorous Holstein, and carried a wicked eye in her shapely head. It was easy to see that the Holstein didn't take kindly to Fred's attentions while he was placing the long rope around her horns. With the rope adjusted, he ordered the stanchions opened, and the crowd to stand back. The heifer took the initiative at once. Out of the barn the heifer went, closely followed by the highway superintendent, and candidate for re-election. The heifer ran at a furious clip, tail erect, head near the ground, and Taylor's legs flying like snare drum-sticks, and his rubber coat slit up the back, floating in the February zephyrs at right angles to the heifer's tail. She chaperoned Taylor over lumber piles, into ditches, and through the orchards, where his course was marked by human gore and auburn colored human hair. In spite of the loss of a golden lock at every jump, and bare-headed, Taylor still hung onto the rope, and led the Holstein heifer home.

Some who have been greatly interested in the extension of the Newark-Marion railway through this town are greatly disappointed that the matter appears to have come to a standstill on account of the failure to obtain the $20,000 required by the railway company. Others are satisfied to let the matter rest for a time, thinking that when the business warrants it the railway will come and pay its own way. Some time ago a law was passed forbidding towns to bond themselves for railroad construction, and many appear to feel that the subsidies required by most railways before they extend their lines into new territory is a plain evasion of this law. In view of the fact that valuable rights of way and franchises are usually granted to corporations free, which afterward appear among their assets with a valuation of many thousands of dollars, there seems to be mulch to be said on this side of the question.
