was totally extinct, one of them hurried
to the nearest house for assistance
and then to town for a doctor,
while the other watched until help
In a short time a large crowd had
gathered and in taking the body out
of the buggy they found his pistol
lying in the bottom of the buggy
with one cartridge empty.
The coroner was notified and the

Marion Boy's Success in West.
Kay Kevil last week telegraphed
for his brother, Jamie, to go at once
to Bishop, California, to take charge
of some work assisting him in the
conduct of the engineering for the
great Nevada-California Power Co.,
of Tonopah, Nevada, of which he is
assistant engineer and resident manager
at Bi-hop, California.
This company has $5,00),000 capital
and is -ending electric current
across two ranges of mountains to
Tonopah, !I0 miles; to Goldfield 115
miles; to Bullfrog, 140 miles, and
to Manhattan, Silver PeaK and other
mining camps in those States.
The company has one power
completed, with 20,000 horse-power
and sends the subtle fluid in a primary
current of 50,000 volts.
They are now having laid six miles
of steel pipe, three feet in diameter,
and four miles of wood stave pipe,
four feet in diameter.

feet above the sea level. The pressure
is 755 lbs to the square inch.

NASHVILLE BOARD OF TRADE
Visit Our City Wednesday and are Given a
Hearty welcome by the Commercial
Club and Citizens
Wednesday morning a special train bearing seventy-five representatives
oi the Nashville board of trade arrived in Marion, accompanied by the First
Regiment Band of that city. ,The visitors were met at the depot by
several hundred of Marion's best people, who amid the the blasts i whistles
and the music of the Marion Silver Cornet Band, gave the visitors a hearty
weloome to the ;ity. From the station a line of inarch was formed and
the cctire crowd, headed by the two Bands, marched to Court Square where
the address of welcome was delivered by Mayor J. W. Blue, who in his
happiest way compared the visitors to lovers wooing the favor of the beautiful
and prosperous city of Marion.
The response was ntade by President Leland Hume, of tkt Cumberland
Short talts were al-so made by J. P. Cohen, Harvey Hogg, H. A.
Cragon and P. M. Ezell, of the Nashville party, acd by Congressman
James for Crittenden county. The Nashville party mingled wuh our people
and distributed many souvenirs. After the speeches greeting and
hand shaking was over, the bands headed the procession and the return to
the spoeial train in waitiag at the depot was made.
The visitors made a good impression here and were loud in their
praises of the reception and welcome given them by Marion and her enterprising
mining journals the accounts of the
stupendous engineering plaas under
way near Tonopah, especially as it is
aware that a Marion boy is furnishing
the brains and energy to do it.
Judge Dowell's Plan,
Judge and Mrs. R. A. Dowell, accompanied
by their daughter and
son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. A. H.
Woods, departed last Saturday for
their summer home in Wellsford,
Kansas, by way of Galveston, where
they will stop for a few days.
Mrs. Dowell, who came here in
very poor health last fall, is still
quite feeble, but the climate of the
Falfurrias country was a benefit to
her, and the Judge hopes to bring
her back to The Land of Heart's
Delight in October or November; and
will make Falfurrias the permanent
winter home of the family.
As many of our readers know,
Judge Dowell 3s a prominent wheat
grower jq State. He
has, about 12$fcres this year, .and
despite he losses
in most sections of the state. At
It will be worth your while to see "Cam."
Falfurrias he has built several
which bring in a comfortable
income; and also has cotton on his
farm just North of town. He expects
to build more houses this fall,
and to put more land in cotton.
Then he intends to divide his time
between Texas and Kansas, looking
after his interests here in the fall
and winter; and there in the spring
Thus, he has worked out a combination
of interests that form almost
an endless chain of income; and his
example will, doubtless, be followed
by other shrewd men in Kansas and
elsewhere. Falfurrias, Texas, Facts.
New Church Windows.
From many expressions of a complimentary
nature concerning the
new windows "in the Presbyterian
church the sees confirmation'
of its: views heretofore expressed
in 'that they are verv beautiful,
For artistic design and color
tone wq feel safe in saying ,they are
not surpassed in Western Kentucky.
Of course"fuch cities as Henderson
and Paducah have churches with
more and larger window.-, but what
we said above still stands.
The members of the
church feel that the installation of
the window is largely due to Mr.-.
Horace Hendel Sayre. Mr-. Sayre
has not been :n our midst but a few
years, yet her interest in thing-Presbyterian
is a lively as though
she had been in the church her whole
life. Her energy is something wonderful.
The members of .the Pre
byterian church made grateful acknowledgements.
