Madison County Democrat — When March made his advent on last Sunday, he not only turned one lion loose, but the cage door was left wide open, and all his lions were given liberty to howl and roar, and they surely made good use of the occasion and put in full time. This storm comes in a bad time, as it is moving time with a great many of our tenant farmers.
