Mrs. Sinnet, of this city, has been
granted a widow's pension bj the
government. She is a hard work-

family of small children and there
is not a person in Lexington but
what will rejoice at her good luck.
The past season she got out in the
field and raised as good cotton,
and as much to the acre as any
man in the township and the Lead-
er trusts that this kind of labor
will never again be her lot.
