What will it do ?
It will spread more freely, look better, go farther and
last longer than any hattd-mixed lead, or so-called "cheap"
paint. A thin coat of paint looks and wears better than a
thick coat. The thinner paint is applied, the better, so long
as it covers. B. P. S. is so perfectly mixed and finely
nround that it can be rubbed out more and spread on thinner
than any hand-mixed or "cheap" paint. Ii. P. S. will cover
.100 square feet or more to the gallon, two coats, and the
cost of paint for one square yard of the average surface is
4 l2c to Sc. This means a satisfactory job in every way.

Candidate for Assessor.
John F. McClellan, of the Cayce
neighborhood, announces this week
as a candidate for the office of As
sessor of Fulton county
He is a "dyed-in-the-wool"
Democrat, and has labored hard in
the ranks for the success of his
party, and bis friends, who have
urged him to make this race, think
he is entitled to recognition at the
hands of Fulton county Democracy.
Mr. McClellan is straightforward,
conscientious and honest and if elect
ed will no doubt discharge the duties
of this office with credit to himself
and Fultou County.

Cross-Over for Barbed Wire Fence.
Anyone who has aver tried to cross
over a barbed wire fence knowa how
difficult It Is to accomplish It without
Injury to body or clothing. A safe
passage may bo arranged by taking
two short hoards or pieces of plank
tag six Inches wide and long enough
to reach from the ground to foui
Inches above the fence. Null these
strips securely to the fence post, slant
ing out at the bottom about two feot
from tho post. To theso pieces nail
threo cross pieces on either side of the
fence thus forming what Is practical
ly a ladder on both aides. The fence
post should be longer than the others
along thu Hue as It enable one to
grasp It for support while crossing.
Several ladders of this kind arranged
at convenient Intervals will make the
uiattur of crossing wire fences easy.

Gov. Willson pardoned Caleb
Powers of Knox county, and Jim
Howard, of Clay county, Saturday
mdrniiig. Howard 'was serving a
a life sentence in the penitentiary
for firing the shot that killed Gov.
Wm. Goebel in the state house
yard on the morning of Jan. 30,
1900 Powers was in jail at George
town auaitinp his fifth trial for com
plicity in the murder of Gov. Goebel.
The pardons of both men were un
conditional. Powers was indicted
last vear In the Franklin circuit
court for securing perjured testi
mony, (jov. Willson also pardon
ed him for this alleged offense.
Gov. Willson was asked what he
intended to do about the Indictments
pending against Wm. S. Taylor,
Chas Finley and others- He replied
that those cases had not been sub
mitted to him and that he could not
act on them until the applications
had been made,
"What is the feeling boys?"
asked the govenor when he was ap
poached by the newspaper men and
asked about the Taylor and Finley
cases When told that some were
glad and some were mad, he said
he thought that was the way it would
The only person now in prison for
the murder of Goebel is Henry
Youtsey. Shortly after the pardons
were granted, Youtsey was seen at
the prison and asked what he
thought. 'Well," said Youtsey,
"there are lots of men in this place
that should have been turned out
before those men, but I am glad
to see anybody get out of
the penitentiary. If Gov. Willson
has pardoned Powers and Howard
because he thinks they are innocent
men, then I tell you he has made
the mistake of his life, for Jim
Howard is the man who fired the
shot that killed Goebel, and Powers
is one of the men that helped plan
"I believe -that Willson has been
compelled to pardon these men by
the Republican members of the
legislature, through their threats
that they would not support his bills
and measures unless he did pardon
them. When Powers and I were
in jail at Louisville and the Republi.
can members of the legislature
came to see him the race was on be
tween Beckham and Yerks, and I
heard every one of them say to
Powers : 'Yerkes has got to par
don you. Do you think that we
would vote for him or work for him
in any way if we knew that he would
not pardon you.'
"I think that Willson has had the
same understanding with the Re
publican members of the legislature."
Youtsey was then asked point
blank if he fired the shot that killed
Goebel, and he replied : "No, but
at the time I would have done it if
the other man had not been there to
do it. To tell the truth, I don't be
live that there was hardly a man in
the place that would have not done
it, for they felt like they would be
protected by the 'mountain army'
and troops and we were all worked
up to such a pitch that any of us
would have undertaken the job.
"As far as Powers' guilt is con
cerned, I tell you that he and Tay-
or were among those who planned
the murder of Goebel, and Gov.
Willson has made a mistake in not
letting Powers go to the penitentiary
and suffer like the rest of us. It
makes me tired to hear people say
that Powers did not know anything
about it, when he and I talked about
how the killing was to be done on
the Monday before it took place,
and I told him then that he had bet
ter leave the city to avoid suspicion."
It will be remembered that a peti
tion was recently circulated in Hick
man for pardon of Powers, aud was
signed by hundreds of our citizens,
lis freedom will be magnified in
various phases, and his innocence
and guilt equally questioned. Eight
years in the shadow of the gallows
has fostered for him sympathy
change in political affairs wrought
The question is, is he guilty?
The fact is, he is free.
