            I know we are all trying to be helpful about this subject, but please let's
            not make this into a computer virus forum. If anyone on the list has any
            such information or questions about virus in the future, I will be glad to
            check it out and then pass it on to the list if warranted.

            There is more information online, on other sites about computers and their
            ailments, than anyone can ever read, but most of the members on our list
            want information from our mailing list only pertaining to Jackson County
            Alabama genealogy.

            Thanks again for being a good bunch of folks to be on a mailing list with.

              Hon. Wm. H. Robinson, one of Jackson county's favorite sons, is
              announced for Congress, in this week's paper. We also publish a card
              of his, in which he gives a brief statement of his political views.
              Mr. Robinson is an able lawyer, a fine scholar, and a true Democrat.
              He was a brave soldier in the war, and lost a leg (we are told) in
              defense of the South. He is said to be a man of great firmness and
              energy, and would no doubt, make a useful and attentive
              Representative. (Moulton Advertiser 3 Apr 1884)

                  Hon. Wm. H. Robinson, one of Jackson county's favorite sons, is
                  announced for Congress, in this week's paper. We also publish a card
                  of his, in which he gives a brief statement of his political views.
                  Mr. Robinson is an able lawyer, a fine scholar, and a true Democrat.
                  He was a brave soldier in the war, and lost a leg (we are told) in
                  defense of the South. He is said to be a man of great firmness and
                  energy, and would no doubt, make a useful and attentive
                  Representative. (Moulton Advertiser 3 Apr 1884)

                  The following card, from Rev. Lee Whitten, dated at Scottsboro,
                  March 2, and was received too late for our last issue: Capt. W. H.
                  Robinson, it is supposed, took his own life this morning at the
                  Harris House. He was found dead in bed, by Capt. J. E. Brown, his
                  law partner, with a large dirk driven through his heart, his right
                  hand clenching it with a terrible grasp. He had written in Florence,
                  yesterday, a letter of withdrawal from the Congressional race. He
                  came home immediately. A pall of sadness drapes our whole town by
                  reason of this awful tragedy. (Moulton Advertiser 10 Apr 1884)

                  Last week we announced Capt. W. H. Robinson for Congress-this week

                  inevitable with Christian resignation. Judge Campbell is nearing his

                  Mrs. Mary Jones, of Jackson county, celebrated her one hundredth

                  the same day of the month, but the good woman is just 65 years older
                  than we are. The 14th of July is lucky for a person to be born on.
                  People born on that day always live to be over a hundred years old,
                  and generally accumulate a large fortune. (Moulton Advertiser 26

                          Sharon's comments and Richard's clippings reminded me of something I saw
                          while going through the December 1881 editions of the Columbus, GA,
                          newspaper on microfilm recently. I want to pass it on, both as a novelty,
                          and also to ask if anyone has ever heard of this "tradition" elsewhere.

                          The paper's columnist was harkening back to "the good old days" (he actually
                          used that term, we only think it's a new term!) of approximately 20 years
                          past when there was a tradition at Christmas (I believe on Christmas eve) of
                          teens sneaking out of their homes, imbibing in "Christmas spirits," and then
                          sneaking up outside the windows of unsuspecting sleeping citizens and
                          scaring the bejeebers out of them by firing off firearms just outside their
                          window.

                          I am not sure why that constitutes "the good old days," I would be inclined
                          to fire back if anyone had done that to me, but I am wondering if anyone
                          else has ever heard of anything like this?

Another man's wife, whom he treated with "the utmost honor and respect" ran off to a "bawdy house" in Nashville.... These are just 2 examples.

                              Mrs. Mary Jones, of Jackson county, celebrated her one hundredth
                              birthday on the 14th of July. Mrs. Jones and the Junior were born on
                              the same day of the month, but the good woman is just 65 years older

                              and generally accumulate a large fortune. (Moulton Advertiser 26

                              to serve the people again in that capacity. He is a one-armed hero,
                              makes a fine officer and we hope the good people of that county will
