HASS MEETING SUNDAY FOR
Mrs. 3fay Dixon, Thacker, wife of
Dr. J. Ernest Thacker, Assembly
Evangelist of the Southern Presby
terian church, who is at present
conducting a reviai meeting at the
Presbyterian church, will deliver a
lecture to women only at the church
Sunday afternoon, at three o'clock.
This address is to be delivered un
der auspices of the ladies of the
Presbyterian church, who earnestly
desire every woman in the city and
county to hear Mrs. Thacker. Her
subject for Sunday afternoon will be
"The Human Touch."
Mrs. Thacker is the youngest
member of the famous Dixon family
of North Carolina. She is a sister
of Rev. Thomas Dixon, author of
"The Leopard's Spots," "The Clans
man," "The Birth of a Nation," and
others: Dr. A. C. Dixon, noted
minister of the Baptist faith, former
pastor of the Spurgeon Tabernacle,
in London, Eng., and Frank Dixon,
a noted platform orator, who has
been heard here a number of times
on the Chautauqua circuit. Not
even her famous brothers have any
lead in the matter of intellectual
ity, culture, brilliancy and original
ity of thought and presentation.
Mrs. Thacker's address will be the
presentation of an important sub
ject for women, and it is hoped she
will be greeted by a large audience
o representative women of Bourbon.
It will be a tremendous inspiration
to those who attend to hear this
woman of such gifts, holding up
the life of Christian service as that
which towers above all other ways

under the joint auspices of the
Paris Commercial Club and the
Community Service was a decided

success .in .am Particulars. The
weather was "Ydea'Vfor the "occasion
and the city was thronged with one
of the largest crowds ever seen here
on a like occasion filling ,the entire
square, which had been roped off so
'as to avoid vehicular traffic dis
turbing the celebrators.
The varied program was carried
out on the public square and on the
lawn surrounding the court house.
Masquerade costumes of every con
ceivable kind were worn by the
merry makers, and in marked con

Lasti Saturday Paris High School
played perhaps the best game she
has ever played in this city, and
to-day, (Friday) November 3,
when Paris meets the Newport
High School you may expect to see
a bitterly contested struggle. There
has never been as much interest in
football in Paris as there has been
to-day. This is due largely to the
splendid teams that Coach Ward is
developing, and also due to tlhe rap
id growth of the High School, which
gives the coach more material from
which to select the fleam.
This is Craig Tucker's four
and last year in High School foot
ball, and there is no doubt that he
played the best game of his career
against St. Xaviers. Friends of
football in this citty may expect to
see him repeat the brilliant per
formance to-day against the heavy
Nash, the one hundred and seven-ty-fivepound
full-back is also near
ing the close of his last season of
High School football. Nash was
ineligible last week, but will be in
'the line-up to-day. John Coughlin,
Chester Strother, two of the High
School's most dependable linemen,
were ineligible last week, but. will
be back in the line to-day. Dalzell,
the fighting little end, has been
sick for two weeks, but is making
a stubborn fight to get into the
game to-day. It' looks now like
every Paris player will be eligible
to-day, and if they are football
fans in this city have a chance to
see the best game Paris has put in
the field' in years.
To-day will likely see the largest
crowd of the season present, as
Newport will bring here the best
team to be found" in any of the cit
ies around Cincinnati, and their
visit here will not be flowery beds of
ease, for Paris is primed for this
struggle as they have not been so
for this season.
If Paris can beat Newport they
will look forward with a great deal
more encouragement to beat Somer
set next Saturday. McCann played
a splendid game last week and is
in even better condition this week.
Harmon Taylor, Capt. Jimmie
Deacins. Connell, Dundon, and, in
fact, the whole 'team, showed mor.e
fight last Saturday than in any
previous game and can be depended
upon to fight Newport harder this
To-day on Hancock Field the
Paris High School football team will
meet the fast eleven from the New
port High School. The P. H. S. has
been strengthening their team since
the game vwith St. Xayiers, with
Coach Ward putting the men
through their paces. Let's give
"them a good turnout and help pull
them to victory.
While playing on the K. U.
Suwanee football game at Lexing
ton, "Chuck" Rice of Paris, was
injured in a fall, a ligament being
torn near the knee cap. It is
thought Rice will be able to take
part in the clash with the Vander
bilt University team at Nashville
on November 11.
