Memphis has raised a large euro

pleasure and comfort. Committees
v ill inert all train?, prppHred to give
information and intrnctioii to visi
tors. Accommodation will be pro
viled free fur any old soldier who
;3 unable to pay for same.
Is yie-.v of the fact that there are
several routes by which Memphis
cau be reached from towns in Har
deman county, it is possible that our
old veterans will not attend the re
union in a body, but will go by the
most convenient routes. All of the
railroads will offer reduced rates.
The fare from Whiteville to Mem
phis and return is $1.15 ; from
Toone, &1.G0; ftolivar, 1.40; Mid
dleburg, 1.35; Hickory Valley,
$1.25. Illinois Central passengers
will go by way of C4rand Junction.

Decoration Day at Walnut Grove.
According to previous adjourn
ment (May, 1900), the good peoj)le
of this and surrounding communi
ties met at Walnut Grove Saturday,
May 11th, 1901, iu order to decorate
the graves and to pay another trib
ute to our friends and loved ones,
who have outstripped us and are
buried in the cemetery at this
place. It was a sad occasion, yet
it was a pleasure to us all to be per
mitted to assemble together for so
great a purpose paying respect to
and placing llowers upon the graves
of men who stood besides Andrew
Jackson, at New Orleans, against
the British, on January 8th, 1815.
Directly after 10 o'clock in the
morning the vast congregation as
sembled in the Baptist church
and at 10:30 a. m., was called to
order by Dr. G. M. Dorris, secre
tary of the committee on arrange
ments, and Prof. J. L. Alford led
the audience in sinking, "In the
Sweet By-and by," after which
Dr. I. II. Hoihsby, chairman of
j the committee on oration, announced
that Eld. C. C. AIcDaniel would'
deliver the annual oration, and, as;
everybody acknowledges, we had a
good one. We never get disap
pointed when we are priviledged to
listen to as forcible a speaker as our
noble leader, Bro. McDaniel. At
the cloe of his speech, the audience
engaged iu singing, The Beautiful
Pearly Gate," afu-r which Rev. W.
II. Pickens, of Crainsville. Tenn.,
delivered a floral oration, which was
greatly enjoyed by all. Very sel
dom are we ever so fortunate as to
hear a? kind a talk from any one,
especially one so fitting to the occa
sion. Our nest speaker was ProF.
Ernest McDaniel, who always treats
his subject exactly to the point.
We shall long remember his choice
words and excellent language that
he used while speaking a few
words that caused U3 to realize that
it was our duty to place a flower on
the graves of our friends.
At the close of his oration, the
committee on decoration, composed
of Misses Mary Fitts, Mary Horris
by, Martha Coggius, Lucy Dorris,
Dora Dorris, Minnie Vaughu, and
Fannie Watson, escorted by Ernest
McDaniel and W. F. Dorris, led
the vast audience to the cemetery, I
where each grave was then decorated
by the prettiest flowers that adorn
our happy homes.
Never before had we seen as nice
a gathering. How nice it was to
see each one with a boquet of pretty
flowers winding his way to the
grave of his mother, father, brother
or sister, and even, perhaps, to his
friend. And still more lovely was
it to see a darling little babe placing
a flower upon the grave of his moth
er, who had not long since left it in
this world to battle through life,
and even to see a loving mother go
to a little mound beneath which is
sleeping her darling babe that had
once been a shining star in her now
However, after each grave had
been nicely decorated, we assembled
in the grove where we enjoyed a
handsome dinuer, prepared by the
good ladies of this aud adjoiniug
communities. It would be useless
to say that we enjoyed ourselves
the good people of Walnut Grove
never allow this feature of the pro
gramme (and an important one it is)
to be a failure.
At 1:30 p. m. we reassembled in
the house and were led in singing
"Blessed be the Name" by Prof. J.
L. Alford, after which Eld. W. H.
Jordan, of Fo'xhall, Tenn., held us
spell-bound for more than an hour
by his matchless words, which are
very frequently spoken in our
midst. At the close of Bro. Jordan's
talk we all sung, "We Shall Know
Each other There," etc., and it was
inspiring to listeu to the great audi
ence sing out the words of the poet
which they so firmly believe to be
The following resolution offered
by Dr. G. M. Dorris, and approved
of by the several committees, was
unanimously passed by every one
present, and is as follows :
"We the above committees do
resolve, that no intoxicating liquor
be allowed on or near the grouuds,
not near enough to disturb or mar
the solemnity of the occasion, at, to
or from the cemetery; that we pledge
ourselves, our honor and integrity
as citizens of the country to use all
our influence to bring such offeud
inpf persons to speedy justice."
The programme having been car
ried out, motion was made and car
ried to adjourn to meet Saturday,
before the second Sunday in May,
"When the graves of earth are opened,
And the fair, loved forms arise,
Springing up from dusty chambers,
Soaring upward to the skies;
Then sweet waves of thrilling music
Will entrance the listcnins ear,
Like the sound of many waters,
Murui'rins gently, soft and clear.
"And when we, too, pass the portal of life im
mortal, Whtn our bark shall anchor on the shore;
O, how sweet will bo the greeting, the joyous
When we meet our beloved once more!"
W. F. Dokuis,
Crainesville, Tenn., May 11, 1901.
The little daughter of the new
neighbor had rung the front door
bell twice. 'Please, mum," she
said to the mistress of the place,
"mamma wants to know very much
if you are going to plant a garden
" "Why, my child, what does she
want to know that for?"
"Well, we are going to raise some
spring chickens, but there's no use
of trying to raise chickens if none
of the neighbors keeps a garden."
Kansas City Star.
An old farmer was skeptical about
telephoning. He didn't believe you
could holler to anyone out of holler
ins: distance. The agent said to
him: "If your wife could talk to
you ten miles away and you could
recognize her voice would you then
"Yes," said the farmer; "if Nan
cy talks to me ten miles off, I will
have to give in, for I can recognize
her voice under any circumstances."
Nancy was taken to a town ten
miles away, the connection was
made and the farmer told to talk to
'Hello, Nancy," he said.
Just then a Hash of lightning
struck the wire and he was knocked
head over heels.
"That's Nancy," said the farmer
as he picked himself up and made
for the door.

which caused a valuable horse much suffering, but
from which permanent injury vras avoided by the
timely use of Mexican Mustang Liniment.
La Grange, Tenn., Jan. 6 1901.
Lyon Manufacturing Co.,
Brooklyn, N. V.
Dear Sirs : I wiU say that your Mexican Mustang
Liniment has done a wonderful cure in this part of the
country. I own the stallion known as the M State of Ten
nessee," who has a large patronage both far and near his
service this Spring to date is 102 mares. I was offered
400x0 when he was two years old. I refused same. Then
some one took him from the stable and commenced with a
wire and wrapped the right leg from the foot up to his hip,
and after standing aU night the leg had swollen so large as to
hide the wire, and in five dap the leg burstcd and the flesh
turned inside out. I spent large sums of money to have him
cured but up to five months ago it was quite a failure, and
then a friend, induced me to try a bottle of your liniment. I
used one of the 25-cent bottles because I did not have much
faith in it, but it helped him so much that I bought a second,
third and fourth bottle, which completely cured him. The
reason it took so long to cure is that it had a kind of itching
sensation when it was healing a little, when he would bite it
with Lis teeth. I put the liniment on the wound with a feath
er and rubbed the swollen parts with my hand.
Mexican Mustang Liniment seemed to take cut all the
itching as weU as to cause it to heal rapidly, and he showed
no disposition to interfere with it The om dollar purchase
has been worth hundreds of dollars to me. I keep your
Liniment in my breeding stable all the time, and to those
who have horses I will say it is the best liniment that money
can buy. I wiU answer all inquiring letters.
Very truly yours,

impress upon your mind that labor

there is nothing worth haviti''
that ean be had without ir, from the
bread which the peasant wins by
the sweat of his brow, to the sports
by which the rich rn??n ru"t f;
of his ennui. The cr.ly difference
betwirt them is, that the poor man
labors to get a dinner to his appe
tite, the rich man to get an appetite
to his dinnci. As to knowledge, ii
can no more b planted in the VTurnan
mind without labor than a held of
wheat cau be produced without tlse
previous use of the plough. There
is, indeed this great difference, that
chauce or circumstances may so
cause it that another may reap what
the former sows; but no man ran be
deprived, whether by accident or
misfortune, of the fruits of his o.vn
studies; and the liberal and extend

he makes are all for his own use.
