Business Men Of City Gather At Methodist Church To Hear Bishop Anderson.  Business men of Somerset, representing all denominations, met at the Methodist Episcopal Church Saturday night, the 15th, for a social hour and to meet Bishop Anderson of Cleveland, Ohio, who was here for a visit to the local church.  The object of the gathering was to acquaint the people with the plans of the church for the building of a Community church in the city and to give our men an opportunity to hear Bishop Anderson on the subject.  Rev. F.W. Harrop the pastor, presided at the gathering and told in a brief talk what the plans were and asked for the cooperation of all the churches and all citizens of Somerset.  A drawing of the plans of the proposed church hang on the wall and these were explained.  Bishop Anderson delighted the gathering with a short talk and made a big hit with all those present.  He is a most pleasing speaker and a man of wonderful personality.  He is broad in his views and a giant in intellect.  Following Bishop Anderson talks were made by V.P. Smith, Mayor Cruse, Rev. C.H. Talbot and Supt. of Schools R.E. Hill.  Lunch was served to the guests following the talks.   The committee that is in charge of the building of this Community church say that work will begin in the spring.  A lot has already been purchased on South Main St.  We know of no enterprise more deserving and we hope that the committee will meet with nothing that will keep them from carrying out their plans.

Sen. Harding Will Pass Through Somerset Today At Noon En Route To Florida Resort.  Senator Warren G. Harding, President-elect of the United States, will pass through Somerset today (Friday) at noon on the Royal Palm en route to St. Augustine, Fla., where he will board a yacht for a two weeks cruise.  He will then return to St. Augustine where he will remain during the month of February.  Senator Harding's car will be attached to the regular train and he will have with him several secretaries, secret service men and quite a few newspaper men.  The stop here will be about five minutes but it is not likely that the Senator will receive any callers.  So far as is known no local politicians have been notified of his coming.  Senator Harding was in Somerset during the campaign and spoke from the rear of his special train.

Sells Daughter.   The Stanford Interior Journal says: "George Esaman, the
Austrian, who is charged with committing assault and battery on his daughter, had his trial in Judge T.A. Rice's court on Tuesday afternoon and was held over to the Circuit Court in $500.  He was also held in a peace bond of the same amount.  Joe Zubra, another foreigner, was similarly dealt with on the same charges.  Both gave bond.  It is reported that Esaman sold his daughter to Zubra for 10 cents a pound, or $15.  It seems that he grew tired of his bargain and sought to make her unhappy by beating her.  She went home, where she received like treatment from her father, he sending her back to her husband.  Squire Simon Petrey, who testified in the case against Esaman, says that the unnatural father was delivering a fearful beating to the girl when he came to her rescue.  Zubra, we are told, denies that he bought the girl, claiming that the $15 he gave up was for her wedding clothes.  The selling of the girl was not brought out in court, but it will likely be thoroughly investigated at the February term of Circuit Court, at least we hope it will."

Warming Up.  Politics Will Begin To Warm Up Soon.  More Announcements.  The
voters are beginning to realize that there will be a county, city and district election this year.  Those who have announced can be seen every day on the street busy with the "great common people."  And it is amusing to see how they bow and smile at the women.  The vote of the women will decide the races and of course it behooves all the candidates to be especially nice to the new voters.  A great many of the races it is said, are already made up, although the primary is six months off.  The Sheriff's race is made up of
C.I. Ross and Ed Thurman.  The County Judge's race is made up of R.C. Tartar,
and Napier Adams.  These two will run this out.  Henry Smith and Chris Tartar
haven't any opposition yet but it is a sure thing they will have.  Senator Shadoan will likely oppose Tartar for County Attorney and Bud Logan's friends
are urging him to run against Henry Smith for Circuit Clerk.  The County Court Clerk's race promises to be one of the most hotly contested.  This is now a three cornered affair with the chances of one or two more getting in. 
The aspirants now are C.M. Langdon, J.T. Vaught, and Miss Stella May.  The race for Circuit Judge is made up with Judge Bethurum and Judge Kennedy.  These men were pitted against each other five years ago and Judge Bethurum
came out winner.  So far Judge Flippin has no opposition for Commonwealth's Attonrey and his friends say that he will not have any.  There has been some
talk of Ben Waddle making the race but he has never given much encouragement to the use of his name.

Sells Cattle.  Prof. V.D. Roberts, one of the leading thoroughbred cattle raisers in the county, sold last week a car load of fine Herefords to a party in Bell Center, Ohio.  These cattle were bred and raised in Pulaski County by Mr. Roberts and shows that Pulaski is coming to the front as a thorough-bred cattle producing community.  Mr. Roberts has shipped many of his Hereford stock to other states.

Stand Corrected.  Our Bent correspondent says that we were incorrect when we stated in a recent issue that Miss Stella May is the first woman to run for office in Pulaski County.  Our correspondent says that in the year 1886, Miss Isabelle Modrell made the race for County Superintendent of Schools against Billie J. Davis and was defeated.

To Open Rink.  Mr. A.J. Crawford is making arrangements to open a skating rink in the old skating rink property on Oak St.  He is having the floors done over now and has ordered 100 pairs of skates which he is expecting soon.  A very fine electric piano has also been ordered.

Name Left Out.  In giving the list of directors of the Citizens National Bank
in our last issue we neglected to insert the name of J.D. Koger.  Mr. Koger was re-elected a director and is a live one.  He is now in Florida enjoying the sunshine and balmy breezes of the ocean.

Good Music.  Thatcher & Waddle have installed in the Gem Opera House a new
electric piano that is the very latest thing in the way of a musical instrument.  It costs $3,000 and was installed by an expert from the factory
this week.  Those who have heard it say that it has the sound of a pipe organ.  This improvement will be appreciated by the theater goers and will make an evening at the Gem more pleasant.

Mose Mentioned.  Mose L. Singleton is being mentioned in Democratic circles for the office of Sheriff.  Mose served the county as Jailer and was defeated four years ago for County Court Clerk by C.M. Langdon.  He made a most creditable race.

Napier Adams.  Mr. Napier Adams authorizes The Journal to announce him a candidate for County Judge subject to the action of the Republican primary August 2nd.  Mr. Adams is one of the most prominent business men in the county and has made an able official when ever the people have given him an office.  He served as Circuit Court Clerk of Pulaski County for several terms and was later Clerk of the Kentucky Court of Appeals.  He made a splendid record in both offices.  Just recently a report from the State Inspector and Examiner says that Mr. Adams office here is one of the best kept in the state.  Mr. Adams is a fine gentleman, capable and a thorough business man.  If he is elected to the office he aspires we feel sure the county will be able managed.


Warrants Served.  Deputy United States Marshall J.E. Bash of Somerset, came to Danville and served warrants on Forest Mobley and Percy Sheen, charging them with transporting moonshine liquor from beyond Crab Orchard to Boyle County.  It is charged that the young men with three other men drove over to a point near Mt. Vernon some weeks ago and purchased a small amount of moonshine for personal use and were bringing it this way when the machine they were in was partially wrecked just this side of the Lincoln County line - Danville Messenger.


Swope Slated.  Newspapers announce that Congressman King Swope of the 8th District will likely be appointed United States District Attorney for the
Eastern District of Kentucky when Senator Harding becomes President.  It is said that Judge Denton, of this city, has his eye on the place also and would like awfully well to have it.  Senator Ernst will have the say.

Going It Alone.  Mr. Bee Whitis, Somerset, Ky., who has been general manager in Kentucky for the J.E. Carnahan Oil Company, is now operating in this field on an independent basis.  He is arranging to make this city his field headquarters and he expects to push development work to the limit.  Mr. Whitis is a strong believer in the possibilities of this section proving to be a great oil field. - Adair County News.

Quit Business.  Meece Bros. who have been conducting a grocery on Main St.,
will quit business.  They are now offering their stock for sale.  The Somerset Salvage Co., also announce that they will quit business in Somerset just as soon as they can dispose of their fixtures.


To Hold Revival.  Dr. J.B. DeGarmo, the well known evangelist, will begin a revival at the High Street Baptist Church on February 7th.  Dr. DeGarmo is
well known in Somerset, where he has formerly held protracted meetings and the High Street Baptist church was very fortunate in securing his services for their February series of meetings.

Debating Club.  The Somerset High School Debating Club met and organized on the night of the 17th.  The following officers were elected:  Chester Silvers, President; Ivan Jackson, Vice President; Bernard Baute, Secretary; Tom Tibbals, Treasurer.  They wish to extend an invitation to the citizens of Somerset to attend their regular meetings which will occur each Monday night at 7 o'clock in the High School building.


Attending School. Lexington, Ky., Jan. 20 - Samuel Franklin, of Meece, Ky., is attending the agricultural short course which opened at the College of Agriculture here January 4.  The course will continue until March 1 and during that time those reenrolled will receive work in all the phases of agriculture in lectures and laboratories.  They are being instructed by members of the regular agricultural faculty and have the use of the equipment on the university farm.  A total of 80 students, including 14 regular short course students, three federal board students, and 63 ex-service men are being given the course by the Y.M.C.A. in cooperation with the College of Agriculture are enrolled in the work. Samuel Franklin is a Federal Board
student.

Ohio Farms.  Mr. W.L. Vallindingham of Science Hill, Ky., the popular Southern Railway operator, is branching out and is now representing a large real estate firm in Cincinnati, Ohio, in addition to his railroad duties.  He has an advertisement in this issue of the Journal. Read it.


A Big Suit.  The Monticello Outlook says: A suit has been filed by the heirs of Juda Denney against Uriah Crabtree and wife, of Windy City, seeking to set aside the Will of Juda Denney on the grounds that the deed from her father to her was for a life interest only.  The plaintiffs are represented by Judge H.C. Kennedy and V.P Smith, of Somerset, and the defendants will probably be represented by Duncan & Bell, Bertram and Bertram, and J.P. Harrison of the local bar.  The suit does not effect the title of the lease as all the heirs of Juda Denney have signed it.

To Florida.  Chas. H. Moore, manager of the Gainesboro Telephone Co., and J.D. Koger, farmer and banker, left last Friday for a short trip to Tampa,
Florida.  Mr. Moore went on a business trip and Mr. Koger accompanied him.

Mr. M. Warren Writes Letter From Texas.  Is Enjoying His Stay In Lone Star State.   Round Rock, Texas, Jan. 3, 1921.  Editor Somerset Journal, Somerset,
Ky.  Dear Sir: - Your many subscribers in Texas have suggested that I write a short letter to The Journal.  I thought it might be interesting to them as well as your readers at home.  I first came to Greenville to visit my nephew, J.T. Burch, who has a job with the M.K.& T.R.R.  He is doing well.  He owns some valuable property in this city.  Greenville is a fine city of about 20,000 population, situated in Hunt County on the Sabine River.  It has fine schools and churches and is surrounded by some of the finest land in Texas.  The soil is very deep and fertile.  Greenville is a great cotton market.  The largest inland compress in the world is located here.  I met my old friend, Charly Dollins, who has been here quiet a while.  I was glad to know that he has made a success in business.  I certainly appreciate the kind treatment I received from the people of Greenville. I am now at the home of my brother, J.R. Warren, at Rutledge, Williamson County, 17 miles north of Austin.  He owns a fine farm here.  The land is very fertile and adapted to a great variety of crops, such as cotton, corn, oats, wheat, etc.  I visited the Capitol building at Austin.  In size, it seemed second only to the Capital at Washington.  It is built of the famous red granite of Burnet County and is said to be one of the most substantial buildings in the United States.  The Texas Legislature will convene on the 11th inst.  I think I shall see this body in session.  I am told that the lower house is composed of 142 members and not one Republican among them.  You see this sight would be a great inducement for me to stay in Texas.  The people of Texas are very kind and hospitable, as you know all Southern people are.  The school system in Texas is something like ours only they pay their teachers a better salary.  The building of better roads will be one of the problems before the present legislature.  There is plenty of room and a great opportunity for young men who would like to make prosperous farmers in this county.  The people here would certainly welcome newcomers from the old states.  Wishing The Journal great success the coming year, I am yours, M. Warren.

Resolutions.  Whereas God in His infinite wisdom has seen fit to call from our midst our dear and beloved friend and co-worker, Ella Logan, and from our class its proficient and consecrated President, therefore, be it Resolved, by the Young Ladies Bible Class of the First Methodist Church, that we deploy deplore her untimely death and are sad indeed to give up one whose life was one of inspiration and promise, whose very presence was a comfort and joy, and whose influence was ever for the noblest and best.  Be it further resolved that we as a class have lost one of our most talented and consecrated member; that we do hereby extend to the bereaved parents and family our deepest love and sympathy.  Also, that a copy of these resolutions be spread upon the records of our minutes, and a copy sent to the family.  Mrs. O.D. Goodloe, Mrs. W.P. Gover, Mrs. V.D. Roberts, Committee.

Convictions Few In Federal Court At Lexington.  Cochran Dismisses The Jury.  Pulaski Countians played an important part in the Federal Court at Lexington last week.  Several of our citizens were there as defendants, spectators, attorneys, jurors and witnesses.  Judge Cochran, disgusted with the verdicts that were being rendered by the jury, adjourned court and continued all the cases until the next term.  James Bobbitt, Cyrus Bradley and Claude Fry plead guilty to a charge of operating a still.  They were given a sentence in the
Federal penitentiary.  Frank and James A. Roy were acquitted on a charge of manufacturing liquor in violation of the National Prohibition Act.  Wallace Stewart was also acquitted on a similar charge.  United States Marshals John Bash and Chas. Winfrey, Policemen Robert Warren and Silas West and Attorneys W.B. Morrow and J.W. Colyer were in attendance at Court.

Small Pox.  Two cases of small pox are reported in the city.  Health authorities advise all possible precaution against a spread of the disease.  They do not anticipate any epidemic.  It is said that there are quite a number of cases at Barren Fork and vicinity.


Still In Morgue.  All efforts to identify the man who has been in the morgue of the Somerset Undertaking Co., for the past three weeks has failed.  Railroad detectives have been working on the case but can find nothing that will assist in identifying the man.

Barcus.  Mr. W.H. Barcus, well known painter of Somerset, died last Friday at his home on Vine St., after an illness of some length.  Mr. Barcus had been in ill health for some time and had been unable to work for months.  He was a member of the Southern Methodist church and the funeral services were held there Monday afternoon, conducted by Rev. Clark.  Mr. Barcus was a member of the local order of painters and was also a Mason.  He leaves a widow and several children.

Collects. $6,560.00.  County Clerk C.M. Langdon collected from the automobile owners of Pulaski County, chauffeurs and dealers, the sum of $6,560.90, which he has remitted to the State Auditor.  This is Pulaski's contribution to the state automobile fund.  There are quite a number of owners who have not taken out licenses yet.  They must do so, however, before they can drive their car.

Carrol Reid Shot By Policemen Warren and West As He Tries To Get Away.  Carrol Reid, son of Rex Reid, was shot in the arm and leg by Policemen Robert Warren and Silas West early Thursday morning, near the home of his grandmother, at Clifty Crossing.  The wounds are not serious.  The officers had been trying to locate Reid for a year or more and they heard Wednesday that he was at the home of his grandmother.  Early Thursday morning they drove out to the house and found him.  They had started with him to the automobile when he tripped Policeman Warren and started running.  Both Warren
and West started shooting.  Policeman Warren says that he does not know whether he or Policeman West inflicted the wound as they were both shooting.  They both state that they shot to scare him.  Young Reid has been in Newport, Ky., for the past year or more working.  He is charged with giving a cold check to M.L. Gover.

Tate.  Somerset people acquainted with him were very much shocked to learn of the sudden death of Mr. Clarence Tate of Stanford, Ky., which occurred in Louisville last Friday.  Mr. Tate was one of the best known farmers in Central Kentucky and a man liked by everyone.  He was a true Christian gentleman and a man of many excellent traits.  Mr. Tate has often visited the family of M.C. Williams in this city, and was usually a visitor during the county fair.  He was a member of the Christian Church and was superintendent of the Sunday School.  He was a trustee of Transylvania College.

Woman Announces.  Miss Lucille Dudderer, of Stanford, Ky., has announced as a candidate for Circuit Court Clerk of Lincoln County.  She has been Deputy in the officer.  Miss Stella May, of this city, was the first woman in the state to announce for a county office and Miss Dudderer is the second.

Smith.  Mr. James Smith of Vinnie, Ky., died after a short illness Wednesday.  Funeral services were held Thursday and burial took place at Pottershop burying ground.  Mr. Smith was one of the most prosperous farmers in the western section of the county and a good citizen.

Died In Texas.  Nephew Of Mrs. Della Mercer Died at Temple, Texas, Last Week.
 John W. Atkerson, of Temple, Texas, a nephew of Mrs. Della Mercer, of Science Hill, Ky., died at his home in Texas last week.  His father, John W. Atkerson, was born in this county. The Temple paper had the following:  News of the unexpected death of John W. Atkerson, public cotton weigher and a well known and popular citizen of Temple, caused a shock to his host of friends all over Bell County last Tuesday.  The end came in a local institution of surgery where he had been taken less than a week before suffering with infection from a carbuncle.  He was buried Thursday afternoon at Little Flock
while hundreds of friends and associates assembled to pay their last said tribute of love and esteem. The ceremonies were conducted by Rev. Doege of Temple and Rev. Lockhart of Moody while Willow Camp No. 16, Woodmen of the World, of which Mr. Atkerson had been a member, conducted ritualistic exercises appropriate to the occasion.  The floral offerings were profuse and elaborate, attesting the deep affection in which this excellent young man was held by all who knew him.  John Atkerson had lived in this community all his life and he had won and held the esteem and respect of every one with whom he had come into association.  He had been cotton weigher for the Temple precinct several years in which capacity he had come to know and be known of practically all the farmers who come to Temple.  He had been having a busy season this year and up to the time when he was forced by his illness to quit active work, a few days ago, he had weighted more than 20,000 bales of cotton which had been grown in this section and brought to Temple for sale.  He was born November 1885, and only a short while back had celebrated the anniversary of his thirty-fifth birthday.  He was married November 4, 1908(?), Miss Nellie G. Denehouse (?) becoming his bride and to them were born three sons, Clyde,12 years old, Thomas, 9, John W. Atkerson Jr., 7.  These with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. T.M. Atkerson, two brothers, Dee Atkerson of Temple, and Alvin of Ocnaville (?), and three sisters, Mrs. Oliver Panik, Mrs. J.C. Elza and Mrs. O.H. Bostle of Temple, survive.   
Belton, Jan. 4 - Mrs. Nellie Atkerson of Temple, wife of the late John W. Atkerson, was yesterday appointed Public Weigher of Temple succeeding her husband who died a few days ago.  A number of friends of he deceased were present before the court in behalf of the appointment of Mrs. Atkerson.  Mrs. Atkerson is the first woman ever to hold public office in this county.

Waddle Tipped.  If there is a change in the postmastership here it is said that Hon. R.B. Waddle will get the plum.  Postmaster Brown's term of office does not expire for two years yet and it is not known whether or not an effort will be made to put Mr. Brown out before his term of office expires or not.  Under an order issued by President Wilson all postmasters are under civil service and in order to displace postmasters it will be necessary for Mr. Harding to do away with this law.  If Mr. Harding allows the law to stand, Mr. Brown will continue in office.

Old Subscriber.  Mr. W.J. Brinkley of Mark, Ky., attended a meeting of the stockholders of the Citizens National Bank last week and while here dropped in to renew his subscription to The Journal.  Mr. Brinkley has been a subscriber to The Journal for 22 years and says he would not think of doing without it.  Mr. Brinkley always renews on time and is a booster for us.  We are glad to have such good friends.

Waddle Appointed.  In compliance with the requirements of the Defense Act of Congress, passed last year, Governor Morrow recommended Captain Stanley A. Waddle, Infantry Section, U.S. Reserve Corps, for appointment on a committee to designate and locate the different units of the National Guard to be organized in Kentucky.

Will Run.  Mr. J.G. Adams who has served as Tax Commissioner during the past four years, says that he is a candidate again and is making the race on his record.

Get $1,000.00.   In the Will of Mrs. Elizabeth Summershein, which was probated this week, the Methodist Episcopal Church is to receive $1,000.00.  Mrs. Summershein was a devout member of this denomination.

"Red" Is There.  The Danville Messenger in a recent issue said: "Booger Red" Roberts, the red-headed Nero of the Colonel grid machine, arrived in Danville
Wednesday amid the cheers of the townspeople, from Monticello, Miss., where the Somerset lad has been visiting relatives.  Roberts was one of the real stars in the Texas game New Year's Day and could not leave Fort Worth after the game because of the girls calling on him.  Roberts received congratulations on his stellar playing for several hours after the contest.

Is Candidate.  Harvey Jenkins tells us that he is sure a candidate for Mayor and that he will make an active campaign.  He says that he knows conditions in Somerset better than most any man in it because it is his duty to visit all sections of the city.

New Agency.  Mr. T.E. Jasper the hardware man, has taken the agency for the Apex Electric Carpet Sweeper and the A.B.C. Electric Washing Machine.  These two articles are well known to housewives in this section.  Mr. Jasper will be glad to give a demonstration.

Diploma Examinations.  Examinations for Common School Diplomas will be held Friday and Saturday, January 28th and 29th, at the following places: Somerset, Nancy, Eubank, Pulaski, Science Hill, Burnside, Shopville and White Lily.  IT is our purpose to place the examination within the reach of every boy and girl who has completed the eighth grade.  We are anxious as many as possible take this examination.  The possession of a common school diploma entitles the student to free tuition in any of our County High Schools.  Examination will begin at 9 o'clock, a.m., Friday morning.  Applicants should supply themselves with pencil and tablet.  Examination fee will be $1.00, which goes to the examiners for grading the papers.  L.E. Meece, County School Superintendent.

E.K.S.N News.  Richmond, Ky. -   We are glad to see Miss Mary Adams out again after two days of tonsillitis.  We are glad to have the following representatives from Pulaski County attending the E.K.S.N.: Misses Mary Adams, Ethel Farris, Emma Patterson, Liza Vornett, Willie and Sarah Correll, Effie Roberts, and Bertha Estes, Messrs Delaney Roberts, Virgil Tarter, Jessie Price, Estes Moore and Raymond Robbins.  We are looking for a large crowd from Pulaski County the beginning of the next term, February 7, 1921.  The Pulaski students never get home sick for but on thing, and that is the Somerset Journal.

Making Good.  Royce Flippin, son of Judge W.N. Flippin, is making quite a reputation as a basketball player at Centre College, and it is likely that he will make the Centre team.  He played with the Freshmen against the State University Freshmen and also played in the Louisville game on the Varsity
five.

Hospital Notes.

Wm. Clarence Tucker who had a very serious operation, has recovered sufficiently to return to the Cumberland Sanitarium.

Mrs. Vance Dykes, who was operated on for appendicitis, is slowing improving.

Mrs. Geo. C. Dodson of Waynesburg is here for treatment.

Mr. Creekmore who has been at the hospital will return home the last of the

Miss Ethel Martin of Stearns is here for a slight operation of the foot.

To The Republicans Of The 28th Judicial District of Kentucky:  I have been chosen as campaign manager for Judge B.J. Bethurum in his race for Republican nomination for Circuit Judge of this judicial district.  I accept this honor because I believe in so doing I am only availing myself of an opportunity to be of real service to the people of the district.  There is no office in this district that is of greater importance than the high office of Circuit Judge, and the people should use the most diligent care in selecting the officer who is to fill this important post.  In Judge B.J. Bethurum we have a man who has been tried and found entirely satisfactory from every standpoint.  First of all he is a Christian gentleman and a champion of the right.  He stands for law and order and is fearless in the discharge of his duty.  He is an able lawyer and a just and impartial judge.  Judge Bethurum is a true and loyal Republican and never strays from the fold.  He believes in party loyalty and party regularity, and in the races between the parties he is always found in the thickest of the fight, yet as an officer in the discharge of his duty he knows no man's politics or his religion.  These sterling qualities of Judge Bethurum has endeared him to the hearts of the people of his district and assures him of re-endorsement by the Republicans.  I enter upon the discharge of my duties, confidently feeling that Judge Bethurum will be nominated by an over-whelming majority at the coming August primary.  And I earnestly appeal
to all who believe in a strict enforcement of law from a just and impartial standpoint to support him.  L.E. Meece.  Advertisement.

A Deserved Compliment.  The report of the State Inspector and Examiner filed
January 13th, 1921, insofar as the same relates to the examination of the office of the Circuit Clerk of Pulaski County, reads as follows:  "The records in the office of Circuit Clerk C.I. Ross, which are kept by Napier Adams, formerly Clerk of the Court of Appeals, Mrs. James said, were among "the best kept records he ever checked."  The above appeared in a Frankfort special to the Courier-Journal on the date above mentioned and explains itself.  It reveals what most people already know.  Our people here who have come in contact with the work of Mr. Adams, and know how careful and painstaking he is as a public official, are not surprised to see a tribute such as appeared in the report of the State Inspector and Examiner.  Mr. Adams bears the distinction of being the best Circuit Clerk this county ever had, and the Judges of the Court of Appeals, and lawyers of the State, unite in paying him the deserved eulogy of being the most capable and courteous Clerk of the Court of Appeals that ever keep the records of that famous court.  The people of his native county are proud of the record of achievement made by this modest, but able man.  They honored him with public office, and in turn he justified the confidence that was reposed in him by giving the kind of service that reflects credit upon his constituency as well as himself.  He now aspires to the judgeship of Pulaski County, and his friends claim he will easily win the nomination in August and that after his election in November, he will adorn the office and give to the discharge of every duty connected with this position the same devotion and ability that marked his service in the other offices which he has held.  He will make a judge that the county will be proud of, and one that will take care of the people's money, and go about with good business judgment in the work of re-establishing the credit and faith of the county.  His friends also claim that the is the kind of man to handle the finances of the county at this time when the county is head over heels in debt, and is so badly in need of good business methods in the work of getting the county out of debt and on the highway to thrift and prosperity.  From The Commonwealth, Thursday, January 21, 1921 - Advertisement.
