Was, Doubtless, True,
Because the Courier said that the
night riders who killed the Walker
negroes in this county near the
Tennessee line came from the direc
tion of Lake county, Tennessee, the
Troy News-Banner uses a column of
space telling us about having no
night riders in that section of the
state, and that we failed to do our
duty in condemning the lawless ele
ment. If the Banner will turn its
glasses toward Walnut Log, Tennes
see, it will fina material nearer home
to work on thit we did not miss-call
our hands in saying that they were
possibly a Tennessee product. So
far as "law and order" are concern
ed, we had rather be a live rascal
any time than a dead hero.

Situation Getting Serious.
The drought is becoming a serious
matter in this section. True, crops
have passed the stage of neeijng
rain except the sowing of wheat
but scarcity of drinking and stock
water is increasing at an alarming
rate. People living more than five
miles from town are hauling water
from Hickman. Wells, cisterns and
ponds are dry, Stock is being driven
miles to creeks for water, and even
the small streams are getting ex
tremely low, and will soon be dry.
Roads are so dry and dusty that
moving crops is greatly menaced.
The Mississippi river is falling at
a rapid rate ; it is so low that it would
