Died or Heart Failure.
While returning home from a visit
with one of the neighbors, Mrs
"Beg" Phlllpps fell dead at the
corner of her yard, Saturday night
al 11 o'clock, presumably of heart
failure. Mrs. Phlllipps was about
40 years of age, and resided with
her family 12 miles below Hickman
In the "lower bottom."
Deceased is survived by her hus
band, three sons and one daughter.
The body was interred Tuesday
at Oakwood cemetery, near Moscow,
Ky., In which vicinity her childhood
Those who know her best say she
was a good woman.
There it a class of laborers who
never strike and seldom complain.
They get up at five o'clock in the
morning and never go to bed until
ter or eleven at night. They work
without ceasing during the whole of
the time, and receive no other pay
than food and clothing. They un
derstand something of every oranch
of economy from finance to cooking.
Though harrassed by a hundred re
sponsibilities, though driven and
worried, though humiliated and
looked down upon, they never revolt
and they cannot organize for their
own protection not even sickness re
lieves them from their post. No
sacrifice is deemed too great for
them to make, po Incompetency In
any branch of their work is excused.
Few essays or poems are written in
tribute to their steadfastness. They
arc the housekeeping wives of the
majority of our people who work,
live and die for their loved ones.
The Paducah News.Democrat of
Saturday says : "Divers will resume
work on the Georgia Lee Monday,
and the will be floated, barring a
further accident in two or three
weeks. In the meantime the marine
ways will be repaired so that she
can be pulled out as soon as she is
raised. H. N. Standi, a diver of
New Orleans, arrived Friday and
another will be here today, making
four divers In all. They will begin
work Monday. The job of bulk
heading the Georgia will be slow, as
the hole Is on the upper side the
current la the high river retards the
approximately 33 per cent
of the population of the state affiliat
ing with no religious organization,
the Kentucky Baptists in convention
at Louisville obligate themselves to
raise $40,000 to be sent to foreign
countries in missionary work.. It
seems to us that the churches would
make no mistake In spending more
money in their own state and town
and leu in Zanzibar. How long will
we continue to put "jewels of gold
on a swine's snout?"
Mrs. Mary Lewis, of Denver,
Colo., is visiting her father, Jailer
J. A. Noonon. She will probably
spend the summer here.

went to see his Lulu one night last
week while the lights were out of

him the following clipping and he

just as much fun going sleigh riding
in the parlor before an open fire if
there was the same excuse for smug

The Human Family.
The human family living on earth
today consists of about 1,150,000,
000 souls not fewer, probably
more. These are distributed literal
ly all over the earth's surface, there
being no considerable spot on the
globe where man has not found a
foothold. In Asia the so-called
"cradle of the human race," there
are now about 800,000,000 people,
densely crowded, or an average of
about 120 to the square mile. In
Europe there are 320,000,000, aver
aging 100 to the square mile, not,
not so crowded as Asia, but every
where dense, and in many places
over-populated. InAfrica there are
210,000,000; and ic the Americas
North, Jsouth and Central liu,-
000,000, these lalter, of course, rel
atively thinnly scattered over broad
acres. On the islands, large and
small, there are probably 10,000,
000 more. The extremes o the
blacks and whites are as five to three,
the remaining 700,000 intermediate,
brown, yellow and tawny in color.
Southern members of Congress
have protested to Speaker Cannon
because cecroes are permitted to

Southern members who happened to
be there at the time walked out.
We are pleased to see a number
of new concrete walks going in at
various points in Hickman. Another
eood feature is that the walks are
being made by Hickman people.

While we are cot much up on
fashions for the fair sex, we believe
that any woman wishing to make
one of the up-to-date lids out of the
handy things at home can do so by
taking that old wash tub, painting it
creen, and sticking a tew loose
rocster feathers around in a sort of
artistically qareless manner.
Three thousand gallons of water
fiom the river Jordan were poured
into the gutters in New York City
one day last week. Col Cliff Nadaud,
of Kentucky, brought the water to
this country thinking he would make
a fortune selling it, but he found no
demand for it.
Our daily increasing business is
the best testimonial we have to of
fer concerning our big furniture es
tabllshment- We had rather "show
you" than to tell you about it. Come

Aa a climax to folly, the unscru
pulous designers of fashion have a
"new thing" in ladies wearing ap
parel presumably to see how far
from the path of common decency mi
lady will go in her attempt to keep up
with style. It is extreme, but the top
notcher in fashion will either have
to take a back seat or go up against
it. The new fad is a pantaloon
gown and this thriller in wearing ap
parel sets the Directoire gown upon
a pedestal of modesty.
It has the directoire back, long ef
fect, Louis the Fourteenth and bo
lero shape. Seven yards of cloth
composes the whole dress.
But that is not the point. When
the wearer stands still it resembles
an ordinary pretty costume, lhe
moment she moves it Is quite differ
ent. What has seemed a skirt parts
just above the knees and regular
trousers come into view. Trousers
just trousers. They make no pre
tense of being anything else.
No underskirt can be worn with
this costume and the lingerie bills of
those who adopt it will be a negligi
Mat Bynura, who was dangerously
shot at his home near Fulton April
29th by Willard Wiley, and who
was thought to have been fatally
injured, is able to sit up. Bynuin
was shot in the breast. Wiley was
so badly hurt that he lived only an
hour or so. lhe consesus ot opinion
is altogether favorable to Bynum,
as he was attacked by Wiley in his
own home without the least justifica
tion, it is claimed, and acquittal is
anticipated for Bynum.
