CLARENCC C. CORUM.
After a two weeks' lllnoss of ty
phoid fever, Ciarcnco Corum died at
his homo In this city, Tuesday morn
ing ut 1:30 o'clock. Foi soveral days
ho was considered a very sick
boy, and although his death was not
unexpected, tho sad news was a great
shock to his many friends.
Clarence wns born near this city,
May 25, US88, a son of Mr. and Mrs.
N. J. Corum, and next to tho old
est of a family of eight children all
of whom survive him. Ho was bare
ly past 21 years of ago Just In tho
bjooin of young manhood and his
soul was tilled with hopo and ambi
tion, which a few short weeks ago
wero more than propitious. Ho was
a boy of Industry and good habits,
enjoying tho fullest confidence of his
associates In both business and social
circles. In tho early part of tho pres
ent year, ho professed faith lu the
"Giver of all good gifts," and later
united with the Episcopal church. In
fact, tow young men were held In
higher esteem than Clarence Corum,
whoso name, It would seem, has been
untimely stricken from tho rool of hu
Young Co rum's ambition In bis
business career was that of law, to
which end he has been working for
some time. During the school year
ot 190S-9, ho attended tho Stato Uni
versity at Columbia, .Mo., and was ad
vancing rapidly with his studies.
Slnco the early part of the year,
however, ho has been at home where
ho looked after tho Interests of sev
eral of tho largo dally papers, and
held a position with Schmidt's Tailor

Tho Hardy Grain Co., of Union
City, and ono ot tho largest firms of
tho .kind In West Teuncsbce, Is In
tho hands ot a receiver. This Is tho
sequel to tho tragic death of Mr.
Hardy, who shot himself last week.
His liabilities are said to bo $200,000
and assets nominal.
A scoro or more ot Fulton county
farmers will bo big losers by reason
of having wheat stored In the Hardy
elevators. This failure also catches
a taw of tho business men of Hickman
who were interested in business with
Hardy. Whether tho grain company
will bo able to pay Its creditors any
thing remains to bo seen. Some of
tho more optimistic have hopes that
u small per cent will bo forthcoming.
When tho state of Mr. Hard's af
fairs became known to the public Sat
urday afternoon, rumors wore afloat
as to the condition of the Union City
Trust Co., of which Hardy was presi
dent, and other business concerns lu
which ho was Interested, and to tho
effect that his death was noc acci
dental. In consequence, a run wns
made on tho abovo bank Monday
morning. Other local bankers vent
to the rescuo and tho run passed
away when It was found that tho
bank was perfectly solvent.
It Is said tho Mr. Hardy curried
about $50000 life and S1G0OO accident
Insurance, payable to his wtto. At
any rote, his failure will bo felt by
many ot tho concerns In which ho
was Interested, as well as the banks
with which ho did business.
