A family by the name of Davis
applied to policeman Myers Saturday
veiling for a place to spend the night,
and were granted the use of the office
on west Main street. The husband
md wife were without money.though
in good spirits, mid the six children
(all girls) romped and played in ig-
norance of poverty. I hey came from
the Cumberland mountains near Me
Minnville, where the woman was
reared, and were endeavoring t)
reach Middleton, their former home.
I hey had come by rail and through
misdirection came here. Murfrees
boro Home Journal.
This was about the toughest and
most impudent gang of beggars
which have visited our town in a long
time. They were here about two
days, but do not belong to Warren
county. They told here that they
were from Smith county, and that
they had relatives at or near Mnr
freesboro whom they were trying to
reach. Our citizens made up funds
to send them toMurfreesboro, besides
furnishing them with food while
here. The next town they strike
shou'd put the whole family to work
pecking rock for the streets.
Dibrell, March V2, ISM. The com
plaint still goes up from many of our
good people that we have too much
rain. I don't think so, we ought to
well remember that it is God that
"tempersthe wind to the shorn lamb"
and it is He that sends the "rain on
the just and the unjust." So we
should not fret, turn up our lips and
become discouraged at the appoint
ments of God.
We learn through Attorney Gener
al W. V. Whitson's son that thejury
together with the court of DeKalb
count j' is now in the Smithville jail.
You stated in your paper last week
that the Demorest contest would

found and severely punished.

The Fort iinute Outcome of a Dicker With
a Hook Agent.
"Feller came along to my place about
a year ago," said a Wayne County farm
er on the market yesterday, "and intro
duced himself as an agent for a book to
be published in about two months. It
was a sort of pioneer history of Michi
gan, and he wanted to put in my wood
cut and write up my history."
"Well, 1 didn't care much about it,
you know, but as his terms were low I
kinder thought it might be all right.
The old woman got onto the scheme
and she wanted her pietur' in."
"Wall, the boys said it would look
pizen mean to leave them out, and so I
concluded to put the five of us in. Fel
ler said he'd group us, you know. I
was to go in the middle, with the old
woman and the boys kinder wobbling
around in a circle."
"Feller stayed all day, took down
some notes, and carried off twenty-five
dollars and our pictur's."
"And you haven't seen him since?"
"Nor received the book?"
"lie must have been a fraud."
"Not a doubt of it. but I'm kinder
glad of it, after nil. He hadn't been
gone an hour when Bill begun saying as
how his pietur' was to look the peartest,
and them three boys fit about it for a
hull month. Then the ole woman got
an idea that her pietur' orter be in the
middle instead of mine, mid fur six
weeks we never spoke a word. Then our
two nayburs got down on us "cause the
agent didn't call on them, and in one
way and another we hev bin made mis
erable. If the look had cum along
there 'd hev bin no holdin' any of us.'"
"But it won't come."
"I guess not. 1 may meet the feller
around here some day. and if I do I shall
walk up to him and say:
" 'Put 'er thar, young man! You are
twenty-five dollars ahead, but by swin
dlinsr me you hev saved the hull darned
fam'ly from chuAwn' each other into
splinters!" '"Detroit Free Press.

A noted crook one day said to a Cleve
land judge: "If I was to tart over
again I would be a lawyer, instead of
an honest crook. There is more steal
ing, lying, cheating and robbing under
cover of the law than outside of it, and
I have been robbed by lawyers as often
as I have robbed other men." Detroit

Isn't one Sarsaparilla as good as
another? No! No!! No!!!
Don't think it. Don't for a moment
think it. If you want Bull's Sarsaparilla,
demand it and take no other. It contains
ingredients that are not found in any other
sarsaparilla. These very ingredients that
make it different from other sarsaparillas
are the most important In fact, essential
to its curative virtue. Omit them and
Hull's Sarsaparilla would be as inert as
iferior preparations of sarsapa
rilla found in many drug stores. Bull's
Sarsaparilla contains no unimportant in

nizing influence upon every function of
the body, improving digestion, strengthen

blood of poisonous matter, soothing the
nervous system, enlivening the mental
faculties, and in a word, by infusing new
strength and life, completely rejuvenates
every part and makes one feel altogether
like a new person.
Elmer Hodson, Alvaretto, Tex., writes:
"My strength and health had been failing
me for several years. My blood was in a
very impoverished condition and very im
pure. My limbs felt lame, .rickety and
rheumatic, and I could not walk without
tottering. 1 felt myself growing prema
turely old, and my face began to look
pinched and shrivelled. I suffered con

eyes were sore and I Lad catarrh. I tried
