By LEE HANKS Hardin Correspondent HARD1N, Jan. 21 (Special)— When attorney C. C. Worthy and editor C. C. Campbell get together to chew the fat they can tell many interesting and humorous anec dotes of early Calhoun people. Their stories about court proceedings in days of yore are particularly good. Here is one the> told this reporter the other day It seems that a farmer, who was then living on Diamond Island, a mile or two above town, had a sicl cow. He came down to town in a skiff and asked the self-made veterinarian to come and treat the animal. The vet complied and rode back to the island in the skiff will the farmer. Later he returnee home the same way. This made the farmer two round trips to town and the veterinarian credited Hi man for $2.50, the price of the call. Time wore on and thp bill remained unpaid. Finally tne "horse doctor" sued the man for the $2.50, retaining T. J. Selby, early attorney and one time congressman as his lawyer. The defendant chose "Uncle Jim" Greathoust;, widely known courtroom spellbinder, to plead his case. The case moved along smoothly with the plaintiff's lawyer presenting evidence that proved beyond a doubt the defendant honestly owed the doctor the money. Uncle Jim raised no objections io any of the proceedings and his friends were puzzled as to how the old man would get out of this one. They had not long to wait. Greathouse arose and admitted hat the debt was legal. However, ue had some witnesses thnt he wished to question. Then be began ailing river men and asking each of them how much it was worth n time and labor to row a boat rom Diamond Island to Hardin and return.
