I thank you for your cordial support in this the best race of my life, though defeated by a very small marjority. I could easily have defeated either of my worthy opponent’s single handed, but could hardly do so when they were doubled and twisted together. I hope to spend the few remaining years of my life among the men, women and children of old Barren, for whose interests I have labored in the past and will in the future cherish, and when you carry me the beautiful place on the hill hard by where I labored, I ask no better epitaph than, “Here Lies “Old Reb, who loved all the children”. With thanks to all for the three terms you gave me as County Clerk, I am yours for democracy. – J B Murray “Old Reb”

The queerest kind of an accident occurred down on Jackson Highway Sunday. ¶ Mr. S W Jewell, riding a motorcycle and Mr. and Mrs. Bob Berry, driving an auto, came together in a head on collision, when Mr. Jewell lost control of this motorcycle and rode over the top of the auto. The top was up, but this in no way impeded the travelling of the motorcycle, which started in on the front fender, went on through the wind shield, climbed over the top, tearing it to pieces and finally landed on the rear fender, which was torn off. ¶ When Rescuers went to his aid, Mr. Jewell as found lying on the ground, still on his motorcycle and still holding the handle, though unconscious. Mr. Berry suffered a bruised face as a result of the motorcycle handle hitting him. Mr. Jewell as horribly bruised, and is in serious condition, thought to have a brain concussion.
