"I have been living hero for the past

mild, equable climate. We read about
the blizzards and miserable weather
they have back Hast and the middle
West, and while it is true we havp
tome cold weather here, it turns cold
or hot so gradually wo scarcely notice
it, and business goes on hero almost un
disturbed. The mining industry in the famous
Coour D' Alcne mountains of Idaho,
some GO to 75 miles from here, has been
largely instrumental in building up
Spokano from a mero hamlet 25 year
ago to a city of nearly 160.000 inhabi
tants, and for its size, one of tho busi
est cities in the world
Tell Mr. K. C. Walton if he Is not al

leave 'the best town on the map' to

Wheat in this section Is not doing

Small Crop of Lambs
Expected This Season, As
Sheep Are in Poor Order.
Sheep raisers in this section of the
State are busy right now taking care
of the lambs which aro arriving, but
old breeders say tlint the lamb crop
this Benson will not he up to tho nor
mil. The old sheep are In bad shape
as a result of the very severe winter,
and in consequence the supply of lambs
will not be of the best
"The old sheep aro in very bad
shape," said a well-known sheep raiser
today. "Muny of the lambs of this
year's crop were born early during the
late cold weather ami fully two thirds
of them perished Very few sheep
breeders were prepared to care for lambs
in such cold weather so late in the sea
son. The lamb crop is going to be very
short in Lincoln and the surrounding
counties this season.

BLOODY BATTLE TO
DEATH IN GARRARD
Creed Turner Killed By Luther
I Ray, Who May Also Die From
As the result of a shot gun and pis-
" tol duel Thursday afternoon at Hourne,
uarraru county, ureedmore Turner Is
dead and Luther Ray is mortally wound
ed, with but little hope of his recovery.
Both were prominent farmers living on
adjoining farms. Bad feeling had ex
isted between them for some time
Several years ago Turner was indicted
in the Garrard circuit court for a minor
ofTcnso and Ray was n witness against
him. Recently the old grudge was re-
Kindled by a quarrel over a corner
stone, it is said, which marked tho
boundary lino of their farms. Since
then they had carried guns and further
troublo was expected Late Thursday
afternoon as Ray was entering thogato
leading from the turnpike to his farm,
Turner, accompanied by two relatives,
came along. The meeting was acci
dental, but it was the siirnal for Imme
diate hostilities. It is not known who
fired the first shot, but Turner and Ray
began shooting at each other at closo
range with double barrel shot guns.
When these were emptied each drew
their pistols and continued firing until
both were severely wounded. Although
both were bleeding and almost ready
to drop in their tracks, they reloaded
their weapons and continued firing until
Turner was deud and Ray had five bul
let wounds in various purts of his body.
Between 25 and SO shots were fired.
Ray's most serious wound is in his
head, where a slug from Turner's gun
took effect. Ho was also shot in the
abdomen nnd shoulder Ma was re
moved to his homo and Thursday night
was nblo to tell tho sheriir of tho bat
tle. Dr. Mack Elliott dressed his
Turner, the dead man. Is a former
native of Bell county, but moved to
Uarrard several years ago. He was
related to "Old Jack" Turner, leader of
the Turner family in Bell county sever
al years ago, and who was killed in a
Pineville hotel He was nlso related to
Leo Turner, of "Quarter House" fame,
but was not in the Quarter House fight,
having left Bell county several years
before its occurrence.
Ray is a member of a prominent nnd
numerous Garrard county family. He
killed Edward Brown at Buckeye sev
eral years ngo.
As a result of the coroner s investi
gation Friday of the tragedy, Gilbert
Turner, son Creedmore Turner, was
E laced under arrest as an accessory, it
eing ulleged from tho testimony be
fore tho coroner's jury that ho partici
pated in the battle and fired several
shots at Ray.
Frank Turner, cousin of the dead
man. was exonerated, as it was shown
.that he was Unarmed and did not join
with his kinsmen In the fight.

at the end, when a big1 Texan democrat
accepted tho Speaker's daring chal

Marked Gathering of Men As
Guests of Popular Huston-

The banquet given by the adult Bihlo
class of tho Christian church of Hus
tnnvlllo Friday evening, March 18th,
was probably ono of the most notable
events in the recent history of this
church, beginning, as It does, a new
era, In an effort to enlist the manhood
of tho church In an active service. The
spirit of good will and christian fellow
ship prevailed, and it was demonstrat
ed that men can enjoy themselves in
considering the great interests of the
kingdom of Christ.
At 7:30, approximately,- 100 men
gathered at the church and marched in
a body to tho Opera House, where an
elaborate menu was served. Rev. W.
S. Willis, minister of the church and
teacher of ono of the Bible classes, act
ed as toast-master. He voiced the sen

in attempting to express his apprecia

so graciously prepared for the occasion,
he felt like the little boy who chanced

on the program with "Our Citizenship"
as his subject. He declared that it was
time for the church to enter politics
and to carry the principles of the Man

Prof. J. N. McVey, of Burnside, next
spoke in a most interesting way on
"Over the Hills to Hustonville."
Rev. W. II. F. Jones, of the Baptist
church, spoke on "Our Ministry" and
the keynote of his remarks was that
the man who responds to the concious
call of God to enter the christian min

job; and that instead of the church be
ing a field to be tended by tho minister,
it is a power to be wielded.
The last on the program was Rev. F.

church, his subjectbeing. "OurHomes."
Ho declared that behind our National
