It looks like there has been very
little gained in the litigation with the
Cumberland Telephone Co. The
company now charges 5c per mes
sage for all messages that go to or
from phones outside the city limits,
unless the party who rents the phone
pays the amount the company wants
to charge. In other words, you can
pay franchise rates (SI. 50 pr month
for residence phone) and 5c per
message for messages as stated
above, or pay $1.65 and receive free
service to out-of-town phones. Con
sequently most of our business men
will be 'forced to pay the business
house rate of $2.75 instead of the
franchise rate of $2,00, as messages
at 5c each would amount to more
than the difference in the rate. This
does not include fiee service to any
other town. It is possible that
those who pay the advanced rate will
later on be given free service to Ful
ton (or county service as it is known)
but there is no assurance of this con
cession. The toll ra , sage charges
which accumulated during the pend
ing of these suits, and which many
people used to excess thinking it
would be free, arc-now being collect
ed. They will amount to about

Killing at Madrid Bend.
Early Sunday morning Robert L.
Watson, the ferryman between New
Madrid, Mo , and Madrid Bend,
this county, was struck over the
right temple with the butt or side of
a poll ax in the hands of Robert F.
Ferguson, sustaining a fracture of
the skull from which he died Mon
day night about 11 o'clock.
There were no eye-witnnsses to
the tragedy other than the partici
pants, and Watson was unconcious
from the time the blow was dealt
until death. Just what the trouble
was we are unable to learn, but
those who are in a position to know
say too much bad whisky is the
prime reason for the differences be
tween the men, who had been good
friends up to this time. The fight
occurred on the public road near
the home of Bob Grooms. Rumor
has it that the men first came to
blows with their fists, Ferguson
getting the worst of it; Ferguson
thdn left the scene of the fistic en
counter and went to the Grooms
home where he procured an axe, re
turned and upon renewing the trou
ble, used the axe with fatal effect.
After prostrating his antagonist,
rerguson surendered himslef to
Deputy Sheriff Finis Clark, and was
brought to Hickman, Wednesday,
for a preliminary hearing : waiving
examination, he was placed under a
$1,000 bond, in default of which he
was placed ih the county jail to
await the action of the grand jury.
The remains of Mr. Watson were
interred in the city cemetery, at
Hickman, yesterday at 1 o'clock.
Deceased leaves a wife and three
small children. His neighbors say
he was a splendid man except when
drinking, at which time he was quar
relsome. He was about 45 years
of age and wSs reared in the west
end or the county, near the scene of
the trouble. For several years he
operated a ferry at the Bend.
Ferguson is about 25 years old,
and was employed on the farm of

Judge W. A. Naylor informs us
that the Fiscal court is ready to re

desire to take advantage of this
The first course Is four years
leading to the degree of Bachelor ol

must have a good common educa
The second, or short course, re
quires the applicant to be 24 years
of age and have good common school
education. In both instances educa
tional qualifications will be consider
ed and certificates of appointment
issued accordingly. The school
begins the first week in September,
and applications must be filed at
The great object of both courses
is to educate young men who will,
after receiving their training at the
University, return again to the rural
districts and smaller municipalities
and take up a line of constructive
engineering which will result in bet
ter roads, bridges and farm struc
tures for the country and better
streets and more sanitary municipal
improvements in the smaller towns
and cities of our Commonwealth.
History repeats itself. The Stand
ard Oil Co,, like most of the big
corporations, has squirmed out of
paying the $29,240,000 fine assess

the Federal court at Chicago. As
to the guilt of the trust there is lit
tle doubt out convicting them is
another proposition. Our hats are
off to Landis, a judge who has
the nerve and honesty to fine a mon
opoly the same as he would a penni
less individual, but not to a court
that sustains every contention of
every trust brought before it. Such
red tape is enough to make the God
