J. W. Bausell, Mayor of Lebanon for many years, will be 80 years old next Wednesday, July 22, 1925. Mayor Bausell was first elected Mayor of Lebanon in 1891, serving for three terms. He was again elected to the same office in 1912, serving continuously from that time up to the present with the exception of one year.

He is perhaps the only Confederate soldier in the State holding the office of Mayor.

Col. Bausell approaches his 80th birthday in splendid health and with a deep appreciation to the people who have honored him, and with greetings to friends everywhere.
