The Hardeman County Far
mers' Institute is increasing
in attendance and interest
with each meeting. That it
has accomplished good, and
will continue to do so, we
firmly believe. All who are
engaged in agricultural pur
suits should attend its meet
ings. In the death of Hon. J.A.
Manson, Hardeman County
loses one of its most promi
nent and popular citizens.
Intellectual ly, ho was a man
far above the ordinary. ' He
took an active interest in mat
ters political and filled many
important and responsible po
sitions. In the discharge of
duty, both private and public,
he was honest and conscien
tious and no man ever held
in a greater degree the. love
and esteem of his"neighbors
which fact alone is one of
the highest tributes that can
be paid to his memory. Hit
death is not only deeply
mourned here, but through
out Tennessee, and where
ever his acquaintance extend
ed. Hon. J. A. filanson Dead.
the announcement of the death
of Hon. Joseph A. Manson, which
occurred at his home in Saulsbury,
Thursday, January 24, t01, will be
read with deep sorrow. He had
been in declining health for several
years, and the end was not unex
pected by his immediate friends.
Ilia remains were buried in the
Saulsbury Cemetery with Masonic
honors. The stores of the town
closed and an immense crowd was
present to pay respect to his memo
ry,
Mr. Manson was born July 28,
1842, in McDonousrh, Ga. He was
educated at Emory College, Oxford,
Ga., where he was at school when
the war broke out. He entered
Company A., Cobbs, Ga., as pri-
vate. In 18G3 he was promoted to
rank of lieutenant; .November, 1863,
he received a wound from the explo
sion of a hand grenade, at Knox
ville and was disabled for a month
April, 1865, he was captured aud
imprisoned at Johnson s Island,
where he was held two months
After his release he resumed his
studies at college, graduating in
the year 1867. He taught school
at Bolivar,LaGrange, Tenn., and
Saulsbury until 1880. He was elec
ted to represent Hardeman County
in the legislature iu 18T6, and serv
ed with so much credit and distinc
tion that lie was cnosen eacti suc
ceeding term until 18S-1, serving
one term as Speaker of the House.
In 1893 he was appointed by Presi
dent Cleveland United States Mar

lie gave it due consideration, then
talked with our Senator, Mr. Hous

both of whom agreed with him that
the most conclusive way of settling
the question would be by a vote of
the people. Hence the matter was
referred to Messrs. K. N. Mitchell,
C. A. Miller and T. D. Newbern,
who were instructed to order and
hold an election, Saturday, Feb. 2,
or Monday following, forming the
rules for holding the election them
selves, deciding who should vote.
Messrs. Foster, Houston and Smith
promised to pass the bills so soon as
it was declared by the election that
the people desired it.
Every lover of law and order,
virtue and sobriety, home and
school, should give his or her influ
ence to a vote for this cause, which
means "For God, Home and Native

C. A. Milier, T. D. Newbern and

our Representatives, Messrs. Foster,

election to ascertain the will of our
citizens on a subject now agitated
in our midst the surrender of our
present charter, and incorporate un
der the Acts of 18J9; to have the
benefit of the four mile law.
For the holding of said election
we formulate the following rules:
The election shall be held on
Saturday, February 2, 1901; three
judges and two clerks will be ap
pointed; polls to be opened at 12
o'clock, m., anil closed at 4 o'clock,
p.m.; all legal white voters in the
town of Bolivar will be allowed to
vote; the ballots are to be written

words, 't or Saloons and "Aeainst

tion. J his January 29, 1901.

It is hoped by the advocates of
"Xo saloons for Dolivar" that the
other towns in Hardeman County
will immediately take proper steps
to close their saloons also.

their change. Some of the mer-

That the State and counties may

property would be correctly repre-
sented by the total assessed value
of property outside of the corpora-
tion.
There are other reasons why the
property of each civil district of
each county should be properly as-
sessed by the district assessors. .
First, it would relieve the county
board of equalizers tlie difficult and
j laborious task of equalizing proper-
I tj with which tbey are not familiar,
Second, the State board would be
j relieved of the unpleasant and per -
I vi r 1 : .1
plexmg problems of keeping the as
county ou a Par,tJ approximating
a cash basis, lhen the railroad
officials would have no good reasons
for litigation or complaint against
the Railroad Commissioners for as
sessing the railroad property t its
true cash value.
It is the intention of the law to
have all the jroperty of the State
assessed according to its voluntary
sale, cash value'; that no tax payer
should be burdened more in propor
tion to the amount of wealth pos
sessed than another; to in
sure a uuiform assessment of
all properties, not exempt from
taxation, so as not only to raise the
necessary funds to meet the current
expenses of each county and the
State, but to obtain the money with
which to pay the interest ou the
State debt aud to create a sinking
fund to liquidate the debt when
due, thereby avoiding the necessity
of levying a higher rate of taxes by
the legislature.

A considerable portion of the

About G15 miles of this work has

of 315 miles, double tracking is in

President Fish does not think

"Whenever I am asked whether

In Memoriam.
Another one of the MaMer's pre -
ious jewels wi-nt to be with II m
ci
Jan. 22, 1101, when little Pearl
Rives Black was called from the
fireside of fond and loing parents
and sisters.
While it is to be assumed as a
universal fact that the brightest,
best, purest and most innocent are
the first transported from earth to
heaven, it is true that the lovely
little Pearl, aged five years and niue
months, seemed to some, who knew
her best, to have been given to earth
for a time and a purpose.
"Ere sin could blight or sorrow fade
Death timely came, with friendly care;
The opening bud to heaven conveyed,
And bads it bloom forever there."
Indeed she was, when but a bud
of promise, taken to the Heavenly
paradise to bloom in the beautiful
garden of God, where there are no
blighting frosts of death. She has
gone to Him who said, "Suffer little
children to come unto me, and for
bid them not; for of such is the
kingdom of God." To be removed
to the Garden of the ' Lord means
culture, beauty anil joy forever.
A child in Heaven! how uplifting
and comforting to Christ loving and
Christ-trusting parents.
Had the loving attention of an
affectionate aunt, the untiring care
of a devoted father and mother, the
faithful, earnest efforts of kind phy
sicians, the intense solicitude of
numerous relatives and friends pre
vailed then little Pearl would now
share her presence in the home
that i9 sad by the loss to them,
which is so deeply and keenly felt.
She was the pet of the household,
her father's daily companion. That
sweet little tongue and those prat
tering little leet will be misled. It
is hard to give ujj one of so much
promise, so bright and interesting,
possessing a loving and happy dis
positiou, geutle and modest in her
manner, winning the love of those
with whom she came in contact
Yet the Lord loveth and doeth al
things for the best, aud we are com
foiled with the thought.
With the deepest sympathy for
the bereaved ones, may the God of
peace and love comfort as he only
can. A rRiENi),
