Bill had taken no further part in the
affairs of the church until some sev
eral weeks ago.
Then Preopher Sims received a call
to the pastorate of a church at Clover.
He was to preac. hthere twice each.
mont and to be.paid $10 per Sunday.
He still d-sired to hold on as pastor
at St. John's. It suited his conven
ience to change the time of service at
St. John's from the second and fourth
Sundays to the first and third. Some
'of the members rebelled at this, and
the situation became more complex.
Some time ago several members of the
minority faction in the church report
ed to the authorities in Sharon that
Rev. Sims had said he "didn't care
nothing about white ladies Sand didn't
mind pushing them off the streets;
they were no better than etc."
According to information received
yesterday these statements were in
vestigated and it was proved that Rev.
Sims had said no such thing. The
members of his church who made the
report admitted that they lied.
I. Isaiah Williams, a negro man who
lived some distance from the home of
Burris was awakened by the shooting
and shouting. He started to the scene
of the difficulty and met the mob
carrying Sims down the road. He fol
lowed, keeping himself concealed. He
heard them cursing and beating Sims;
he heard Sims cry out once or twice.
'-He did not i-ecognize anybody because
he could not see. Nobody knew he
was around. He knew of no trouble
in which Sims had been engaged ex
cept that about. his own church and
the talk about white women and that
had been satisfactorily cleared up.
No negro at the scene of the trag
edy yesterday, and The Enquirer re
porter talked with a score of them,
could ascribe any motive for the
crime. Several women, members of
the dead preacher's church went into
hysterics at the sight of his dead body
and the woods resounded with their
cries. "Oh, God," moaned a woman,
"if the white people will not take care
of us, what is to become of us!"
It appeared to be a great mystery
to the negroes, whether it is or not.
That minority members of the church
jshould be involved is plausible; there
was no theory as to why whites
should be engaged unless it be that
they had decided to beat up Sims for
the alleged remarks he made about
So far as could be learned, Preacher
Sims bore a good reputation both
among whites and negroes of the
Sharon and Locust Hill sections
among whom he had come and gone
for more than thirteen years. Several
people said he was inclined to be
impudent; nobody specified.
Rev. Sims was a powerful speci

SAYS HE NW lLS
O YEARS YOUNGER
Judge Woodson Now Hale and Hearty
After Taking Tanlac.
IS WEALTHY FARMER
"It Certainly Has Made a New Man
of Me," He Says-Held Public
Office 20 Years.
"I can pick up a log of wood and
throw it on the fire with as much
ease as I could 20 years ago,", said
Judge M. L. Woodson, of Jericho,
Ark., in telling of the remarkable re
sults he has gotten from Tanlac.
Judge Woodson, who is now 70
years of age, served the entire four
years pf the Civil War. le lived
two years in Memphis right after the
war and then settled down at his
present estate, where he has lived for
50 years. Judge Woodson said his
only possesions when he started out
for himself were a pair of mules and
$38 in ca'sh. He has made his for
tune farming and trading and is now
probably the wealthiest planter in
Critenden County. He served two
years as tax assessor and twenty
years as justice of the peace, and is
one of the most prominently known
men of Arkansas.
"I had been in a generally run down
condition and failing health for 10
or 12 years," he continued, "and for
the past 10 years I wasn't able to
get on my horse from the ground;
I had to lead him up to a block or
something before I coul l mount.
Jericho is a mile and a hal from my
plantation, and I hadn't been able to
walk there for my mail, as had been
my custom, for a year or two. I had
lost my appetite and could hardly eat
anything at all. I realize a man 70
years old will give way, but I got
so I could not put a log of wood on
the fire when the negroes were not
handy. .My doctor wouldn't allow me
to eat any meats or much else except
vegetables, as I had been threatened
with diabetes; but Tanlac has even
straightened me out in that respect.
I was badly out of sort; and it looked
like nothing I could take would do
me any good or give me enough
strength to look after my farm hands
and my crops.
"Last spring, when Tanlac began
to be advertised and everybody was
talking about it, I decided to see what
it would do for me. Well, it got me
started back up hill at once; but,
without going into details about my
rapid improvement with each bottle,
I'll just say that after taking six
bottles I could straddle my horse from
the ground and walk that mile and a
half for my mail with all ease. In
fact, it just built me up until I felt
20 years younger. I'm more active
and have more strength and energy
than I've had in 20 years. That's
what Tanlac has (lone for me. I don't
know what Tanlac has in it that
does you so much good, but whatever
it is, it certainly hits the spot and
builds you up better than anything
I ever saw. It certainly madle a new
man of me and I've told a lot of
people about it. My wife has taken
it too, and it has built her up won
derfully. And I've bought lots of it
for my negroes and it has helped
all of them that have taken it."

CONGRESS IS IREADY
TO SPEND IABERALLY
P'erfection of Standardized Motor
Makes P'ossible Building of Several
Typ'Ies for Service at European
Washington, Aug. 20.--Congress is
readly to appropriate $1,000,000,000
more to enlarge the American aircraft
program. Administration leaders have
giv'en this definite assurance concern
ing newv plans which are now being
worke'd out by the War Department.
F~or military reasons these plans are
kept secret, but it can be saidl that
the highly successful tests of the new
standlardlized Un i ted States airplane
motor have convinced military e'xperts
that quantity production should be
stimulated to the limit of A merica's
The new program of the govern
m(ent will broaden /upon a vast scale
the original aircraft construction
plans and wvill have them effect of plac

number of fighting machines at a date
much earlier than was first contem
plated. The War Department officials
(directing.-aircraft work are said to be
confident that thousands of Ameri
can-madle machines wil be ready for
service in France early next spring.
Senator Morris Sheppard, of Texas,
one of the most prominent and influ
ential members of the senate military
affairs committee, today reflected the
view of his colleagues in the assertion
that any additional sum the presi.

"Just as soon as. the War Depart=,

more aircraft, it will be provided with
out a doubt," Senator Sheppard said.
'Of course, the necessity for it must

ever, that the standardized motor has
speed, durability and reliability co
ordinated with high power ratio to

"Under the plans upon which aero
plane factories are now working, three
distinct types of machirce will be
turned out for service upon the French
front. These are the small swift ma
chines designed for air duels and for
use to screen observers and bombing
craft; ,daylight bombing machinessuf
ficiently swift to minimize the danger
of anti-aircraft guns and large enough
to carry observers, radio and bombs,
and the night bombing machines
which are built for carrying capacity
rather than speed."
BAKER MAKING INVESTIGATION
"Nebro-in-Army" Question Now Sub

Washington, Aug. 27.-Secretary of
War Baker today told Senator Shep
pard, of Texas, that the recent Hous

tary) an opportunity to bring up for
thorough investigation and considera

in the army in all its phases, and
that the department hoped to reach
a conclusion which would be to the
best interests of all concerned after
making this new and complete sur

was decidedly encouraged at the close
of the interview.
