THE HICKMAN BANK
OLDEST BANK IN FULTON COUNTY
Capital and Surplus, $65,000.00
Hickman Boy Wins.
Going up against the best oratori
cal talent in the High Schools of
Fulton and Hickman, at the former
city, Monday, Frank C. Smith, son
of Mr. and Mrs. C. C Smith, of
this city, carried off first honors as
the best orator in a spirited contest
of six entries. While every oration
on the program was good. Smith won
in a walk. The subject of his ad
dress was "A Republic That Never
Retreats." The patriotic and fluent
manner in which young Smith han
dled his subject, made himatonce the
favorite the hero of the occasion.
Edwin Rice made a master effort to
keep the medal at Fulton, but only
succeeded in tieing for second place
with Willie Bondurant, also of Hickman.
The contest was held under the
auspices of the School Improvement
League, of Fulton county, and the
gold medal was a gift from Herschell
T. Smith. The Carr Institute build
ing, in which the contest was held,
was crowded with visitors and stu
dent bodies from Martin, Union City,
Hickman and Fulton. We under
stand the League will continue these
contests, and hold them annually.
It is no small honor to come off
the victor from such an aggregation
of trained and talented contestants.
While Frank wears his honors in a
most modest manner, he has merit
ed, and the Courier joins his many
friends in extending congratulations.
Miss Gertie Perry, aged 18, resid
ing in Graves county, died from
hydrophobia at the home of her un

dog, she was bitten on the hand, but
the wound seemed to heal and no
danger was feared until Thursday
night, when she was thrown sudden
ly into convulsions.

about it he says: "My suffering

so-called electric belts, but none of
of them did me any good.
One day, while working near my
daughter's house, my back pained
me so badly that I had to quit. I
went into the house and lay down

it and gave me some to take home.
I used six and a half bottles of
Sloan's 25c. Liniment and can do as
much work now as any roan in the

years old. I would not be without

One of the severest electrical
storms to occur in this city for many
years, struck here about 2 o'clock
Tuesday morning. Lightning struck
and damaged the Christian church
to the extentof many dollars. About
3 o'clock the lightning followed the
electric light wires into the power
house and damaged the armature of
the dynamo to such an extent that
the city was in darkness until day
light. An incessant flare of light
ningfollowed by a continual rumbling
and an occasional deafening burst of
thunder made the "wee small hours"
anything but pleasant. This was
followed by a down-pour of rain, do
ing great damage to streets.
