Dr. Jobert Burt Performed A
Delicate Operation At In
firmary This Morning.
Through a skillfully performed,
operation by Dr. Robert T. Burt at
the colored infirmary in this city to
day, the life of Rassie Washington,
colored, who received a bullet in his
head .Sunday a week ago in a row
near Edgoten, may be saved.
The missile struck Washington
squarely above the left eye, going
straight in and there was seemingly
no hope for his recovery. After
lingering in an unconscious condition
at the infirmary, where he was taken
a week ago, Dr, Burt decided upon
an operation. A solid piece of the
skull bone the size of a half-dollar
coin, several smaller fragments of
base, a liberal part of an old woolen
bat which the negro wore md the

Dr. Gunn.Mrs.Gunn sold the ground

still owns the building and has been
renting it to Mrs. Quick, who con

previous to the sale. A condition of
the purchase of the grcjind by the
Government was that at any time
possession of the ground was to be

appropriation of 510000 with which
to begin the erection of the building
in the way of putting in a founda

Secured For Two Free Lectures
On Next. Monday, July
HE IS AN EXPERT IN HIS LINE
Addresses Are Brought Through
The Efforts Of Business
Farmers should not have to be re
minded of the two lectures to be de
livered here next Monday morning
and afternoon, the first at 10 o'clock
and the second at 1 o'clock.
Through the efforts of the Busi
ness Men's Association, John W.
Newman, State Commissioner of
Agriculture, has engaged Mr. Lo
well Roudebush, of New Richmond,
Ohio, to deliver his famous lecture
on "Noxious Weeds and How to De
stroy Them." His other lecture is
about "Insect, Pests and Their Ene
mies." The farmers of this section should
and can well afford to leave their
farms, even at this busy time, to
come to town Monday and attend
these lectures, for they are for their
particular benefit. Practically there
is nothing in them for the merchant
or the other business men, but the
Business Men's Association, keeping
step with the spirit of the times,
took this matter in hand for the
good of the farming community.
Of course the members of the Asso
ciation know that "as profits the
fflrmer 8Q profil8 everybodyt but
they have assumed the initiative in
this matter for the farmer, and he
should show his appreciation.
Mr. Roudebush is a farmer him
self and "practices what he
preaches." His ability to talk on
the subject he has chosen is well
known. From a gentleman who has
heard him repeatedly we learn that
he has lectured in nearly every State
of the Union and always de
mands pay for his services. His ex
penses are paid by Mr. Newman and
both lectures will be free to every
body. Ladies who have trouble in
chicken raising are especially invited
to come and bring their poultry
troubles with them. Mr. Roude
bush will give them suggestions that
be will profitable. Any questions on
