The company has an immense
steam shovel at work, and believe
ua, it is throwing somejdirt.
This big machine was received a
week ago and has been steadily
at work now for several days.
It requires a large number of
teams to haul the dirt it scoops
up, the shovel's capacity being
something like four or five yards
a minute, or ' upwards of 200
yards per hour.
The machine was put to work
at the north end of the Illinois
Central's track above the incl'ne
and is grading at this time on

sycamores, and the I. C. tracks,
With the work progressing
thus rapidly, and with the large
amount of road which is already
completed, namely, from Sam
Clark's to the seven sycamores,
it should not be many months
until the entire road to the mines
would be ready for the rolling
stock. Carrsville Enterprise.

The County Clerk's Office.
One of the most important
officers to be elected next Tuesday
by the voters of Crittf ndeh
county, is the County Clerk.
His duties require him not only
to record the deeds and mortgages
and other papers that may
be filed with him, but he also
keeps the records of the proceedings
of the county and fiscal
courts. During the course of
the year almost every citizen in
the county has some business in
the County Clerk's office or with
the County Clerk in looking up
records, filing deeds, mortgages
or other papers, etc., and it is1
to the interest of citizens that
we have a man in the office, who

Scheduled tor This Season's Lyceum
Course. Includes Five
Our Lyceum Course for the
coming season is bigger and better
than ever, that is, better and
higher priced talent than we
have ever had before has been
contracted for. It is a lecture
and entertainment course and
one that should appeal to everyone
who enjoys instruction and
good wholesome entertainment.
There are to be rive high class
musical programs; an evening of
impersonations by John B. Ratto;
a program of interpretations by
Everett Kemp; and lectures by
iDr. Edward Amherst Ott, Dr.
E. T. Hagerman, William Rainey
The course is under the auspices
of the Marion City School
and the entertainments will be
held in the School Auditorium.
Since last season the Auditorium
has been reseated with attractive
and comfortable opera chairs,
making it the best Auditoriun
in town for such entertainments
We believe in the Lyceum and
believe that the management
should be in the hands of the
the school It furnishes entertainment,
a large number of the
students. And Pres. Van Hise,
of Wisconsin Uuiversity. says
that the field of knowledge is
broadening so rapidly, that, for
the people to have an active appreciation
and an accurate understanding
of the age in which
they live, the school must
instruction for parents as
well as their children. Then
there is a growing sentimei t
that it is the duty of the school
to furnish food wholesome entertainment
for its community,
We want the Lyceum, in a meas
ure, to meet these needs.
The season tickets will go on
sale some time this week. Tl e
price of season tickets for ado ta
will be $2.75 each, forpupils $1.50
each. Considering the character
of programs we have to offer
the price is so low that we do
not see how any one can afford
not to take advantage of the opportunity.
The price of single
admission tickets will be 50 cents
each for adults, 25 cents eacli
The first number of our course
is to be a lecture by Dr. Ott. He
was on the Chautauqua progrrrn
here last summer and his lecture
on "Sour Grapes" was regarded
by many as the best feature of
the whole program. We have
never had a lecturer on our courses
that will compare at all favorably
with Dr. Ott. He is a university
profesSbr, writer of
books, contributor to the periodical
press and lecturer. His lectures
show the stamp of the
and are at the same time
humorous and highly entertaining.
American audiences can
hardly get enough of this man
and his purposeful oratojy. He
is to be here Monday evening,

Arrcslcd By Deputy Sheriff On
Telegram From ftkCracken
Dr. J. W. Bass, of Paducah,
who became the husband of Miss
Lottie Dean Wednesday morning,
had an experience Tuesday night
that he will not forget should he
live to be-one,thousand years old.
He was actually placed under arrest
by a deputy sheriff and was
in custody of the officers as a
"felon" for some time.
And to., make the jokej more
humiliating he was placed under
"arrest" at the home of his
bride on Holloway street while
in the act of sitting down to a
pre-wedding supper. The joke
happened this way:
Dr. Bass is related to the
sheriff of McCracken county.
To pull off a capital joke, onthet
bridegroom thePaducah officer
sent a telegram to Sheriff Abbott
to arrest Dr. Bass and to hold
him until further orders. Sheriff
Abbott did not know but
what the message was genuine,
and he directed Deputy Eastin to
make the arrest. Deputy Eastin
located the doctor at the home
of his bride and promptly made
krown his miffiop. Consternation
was caused among all except
Dr. Bass, who krHv of the joking
proclivities of his kinsman,
and tried to explain thasituation
'o the guests and the- officer.
Deputy Eastin was obdurate and
would not listen. He accompanied
the doctor down, and was
handed another message saying
it was all a joke.
The angered physician beat a
hasty retreat to Miss Dean's
home to explain matters and get
his portion of the splendid supper
which he was about to miss.
It is expected that the McCracken
sheriff will make himself
scarce when Dr. Bass and
bride arrive at Paducah. Henderson
