J.W. Killebrew, the present register, was raised near Palmersville and lived there until elected register six years ago.  He is crippled from white swelling, but has recovered sufficiently to throw away his crutches.  He has made and (sic) excellent register, has kept his books in exceptionally good condition, and his efficiency in office caused him to be now serving his second term.  He is married and has six children.  He has bought a home here and is truly a citizen of the town.  Mr. Killebrew is a genial, kindhearted man, and has a personal friend in each of our people.  He is, of course, a Democrat, and has ever remained loyal to his party.
