the Dark River.

Plucky Fight Against the Grliu
Destroyer, but Succumbed
In Unequal Contest.
Wlneate, Ind., Aug. 29. At 6:30 a.
m., at the quiet Meharry homestead,
Nvhere he was taken immediately after
his BUdden affliction with paralysis,
ex-Governor Claude Matthews passed
away peacefully, surrounded by his
wife and all the members of his fam
ily. There was prayer service, accompa
nied by the singing of hymns at the
bedside of the dying governor. Mrs.
Matthews was very much affected and
stated that she would give anything in
the world if her husband would mani
fest by a single word hiB faith in
About 3 a. m. the minister in the
course of the services asked the dying
man if he believed in Jesus. The an
swer, as plainly as any one could ar
ticulate it, was "Yes."
The three physicians regarded this
answer as miraculous, as all agreed
that the particular part of the brain
affected by the paralysis was that gov
erning speech, and that the ex-governor
pro'ably never would have
talked had he lived. It was the only
word he spoke after he was stricken.
He immediately lapsed into a pro
found coma from which be did not re
cover before he passed away. Mrs.
Matthews will start from Wingate at
once with the remains of her hus
band. The party will go direct to Hazel
Bluff, the home of the dead ex-,jv-ernor.

of ex-Governor Matthews the body

There has been a strong competition for tho
colory lugs and tho lower grades, and tho prices
have been some higher, while the best grades of
leaf have remained about the samo, with no ad
vance. They are not selling in proportion to the
medium and low grades, and it is a question if
tho manufacturers will need a sufficient quan
tity of theso best grades to advance prices very
materially before the new crop is marketed.
There are a few buyers who still argue that tho
shortage of tho 1897 crop will cause a sufficient
scarcity to ndvauce prices, but as the season is so
far advanced wo can not see much opportunity
for any large advance, and it is very dangerous
to carry old stock over Into the new shipments.
Tho crop Is growing out nicely, and if the
weather is favorable for cutting and curing wo
may expect one of tho best crops grown for
