o'clock to-night ono of tho most startling
tragedies Dallas has over known occurred

School, tho leading educational institu

was seated, on the first seat in front of
tho altar, and shot bim without a word
of warnie, , the weapon used hoing a
ilS-calibro pistol. Prof. Lipscomb sprang
up from bis seat, grappled with bis
assailant and toppled over into tho aisle.
Carlislo was seized and taken to .lie
county jail. Ho appeared to ho almost
helplessly drunk and could not, or would
not, talk o? tho tragedy. Prof. Lipscomb
was too badly burt to be removed from

his hoad resting in bis wife's lap and bis
feet in a chair. Ho was reported dead

Carl isle had for nearly a year been

Morrison to thc Masons.
ATLANTA, GA., July 0. - Bishop Mol
lison spoke from the pulpit of the First
Methodist Church to-day to tho Free
Masons of Atlanta. In tho course of his
sermon the bishop said:
"ll has .seemed to me of late that tho
prosent is an age of insincerity, an age
el" falsehood, and tho status of society
and of our business life will boar mo out.
Thousands of men will not toll thc truth
unless they know they cnn make some
thing hy it. The moral decay of tho
present age is due to this disregard for
truth. Lies are put up in packages, sent
?ut in barrels and bung Up on hooks.
Men are justifying themselves with tho
fact that their acts are common.
"Thal embalmed beef soul to Cuba is
n<> worse than we get to-day. I behove
llmt the large death list in this country,
which is daily growing greater, is due
directly lo the dishonest adulteration of
food, which goes into tho homes of our
country. The whole commercial world is
hoiievcombed willi lint ruthi'illness, and
tho inordinate love of money which lias
laken bold of our people is at the bottom
"Thei'O are men in Atlanta to-day who
have been running lo money so long that,
while their wealth is live times as great
as I or morly, their reputation is more dian
live times as small as it was before.''
Arkansas i'oulh Lynched hy Boys.
Lu ILK HOOK, AUK., July ll.-Tho
details of a lynching at Corning, in Clay
county, some days ago, came to light
lune to-day through tho issuance of a
proclamation by tho Governor, offering n
reward for tho apprehension of the. mem
bers of tho lynching party.
Two years ago a young man named
Ked Davidson was murdered in tho out
skirls of Corning by a boy named George
llrako. Tiie murder was tho result of a
feud between tho town boys and thc
boys from the surrounding country.
Drake escaped and has never been
enpturod. Recently Hud llrako, a bro
ther, was arrested and placed in jail at
Corning, charged with complicity in
the murder. A few nights ago a mob of
young men and boys, supposed to be the
friends of Davidson, overpowered the
jailer and took Hud Drake out ?md shot
him to death. The G o vor nor offers a
1 reward of $100 for each of the members
* of the mob and a like amount for the
arrest of George Itlako.

JAKE COOK AND THE BARBECUE.
lc Was Not Proscnt, But Hears Somothing
Ahout it and Expresses His Views.
Four MADISON, July IL-Editors Cou
fior: Thovo luis boon a great deal saul
n regard to tho big barbcouo dinner at
??onoca on Hie (tb of July. It hoing ad
vertised in tho county papers boforo
?and, tho people naturally expected a
rood timo and a freo dinner. 1 hnvo
[teen tedd that thero were moro than two
thousand people prosont, and lt would
have berni a success but for tho fact that
lhere was such a great contrast in tho
principles of tho Farmers' Allianco . and
the arrangements of tho barbecue dinner.
lt scorns that ono man made tho an
nouncement from tho stand that tho
harbecue dinner was only prepared for
thoir invited guesbs-about SOO in num
ber-and that there wore lunch stands
provided where others could get dinner
?it small cos!, when, at the samo time, on
tho front of tho rostrum, upon which ho
was standing, was au inscription:
"Equal rights to all, ?md special privi
leges to none." Now this is a good
motto, but it is a little like Mark Twain
said of tho good man. Ho said: "If you
ho good you will be lonesome" I think
that motto would seem lonosonio under
those circumstances-.'100 invited guests
or special privileged few and sovonteon
hundred disappointed pooplo lo go homo
hungry or pay for their dinner at thc
Irnich Btnhd. Such arrangements as
these wore not in hooping with thc
motto and tho Allianco principles.
Wo have been told that Mr. Tillman
made the speech of his life that day. 1
would liked to havo heard it. lint I
notice that Tillman nor l.atimer did liol
mention the penitentiary muddle.
They had better get things in shape
down there. Tillman should remeinboi
that when he was running for Qovoruoi
of South Carolina ho talked a good deal
about throwing stones and fighting w it!
pitchforks. Ile need not ho surprised
if in his next raco for tho Senate his op
ponent has a whole carload of brick tc
throw af him. Wo think Mr. Tillman
and Mr. Latininr should pay up what
they are due the State. They know Mr,
Neal had no ht lok Ol' book casos of hit
own to sell. As to Josh Ashley wo thinl<
tho Slate, ought lo givo him a clear
receipt and feed hi:; horse free again,
simply for cleaning Ibo dead rats out. ol
the dispensary whiskey. Though tin
dispensary system is as rotten as Hu
dead rats, but. it may not ho so unhealthy
Therefore wo think Mr. Ashley did ?
good deed. Yours, ?Vre,
J. A. COOK.
Constipation eau ho cured easily am
