          We are most happy to observe that our old friend and schoolmate,  T. A. McFarland,  has been nominated by the Democracy of Shelby County, as a candidate for Representative in the State Legislature.  As a lawyer he has won for himself, though yet quite young, an enviable reputation.  From an orphan boy without a cent in the world, he has by industry and perseverance attained the eminence he now occupies.  (LaPorte Times).
