was quoted in Memphis yes

'Two . policemen of Nash
ville arrested a criminal a lew
days ago and allowed him to
escape. This moves the News
to remark : "One is almost
driven to conclude that some

We direct attention to the
announcement of Judge A.
G. Hawkins, candidate for
re-election to the office of
Chancellor of this division.
Judge Hawkins has filled
this' responsible position for
about 15 years, and his de
crees have always been just
and fair. He is a man of high
character and ability, a chris
tian, esteemed by our people.
He will appreciate :.. the sup

The New York Herald
publishes a table, which has

number killed G99, died of

Democratic nomination for
Governor of Tennessee, spent
Tuesday in Bolivar. This
was not Mr." Frazier's first
visit to our town. He was
Elector for the State at Large
in 1900 and delivered in the
court-house here one of the
most powerful and eloquent
speeches ever heard by our
people. He has done great
service for the cause of Dem
ocracy and as Chief Executive
will, we believe, reflect credit
upon the Volunteer State.
While his qualifications and
services to the party have
never been doubted or dis
puted, some of us referred
to support Judge Swiggart, f
being from our section of the
state and equally fitted for;
l . . T.. ,1 1
Swiggart' withdrawal, we
feel confident that Mr. Fra
zier can safely count on the
solid vote of Hardeman in the
A Novel Serenade.
These beautiful moonlight nights,
with the mellow glow of exquisite
radiance and good cheer that cause
the heart to le3p and thrill in re
sponse to every call of nature, afford
lovely and seductive incentive for
serenading parties. As customary,
here and there the festive choiristers
of slumbering uight are invited iu
to tempting spreads hastily arranged
by fair and dainty hands. But the
romance-loving young people of this
town departed from this ancient
custom of serenade Friday night,
when they turned up suddenly like
forty or fifty Halloween angels just
from the trailing vines and brilliant
hue'd blossoms of the garden of Iles
perides, and surrounded the cosy
little parsonage of the Methodist
preacher with gladsome melody of
song and instrumental music. It
was only after the tall form of the
pastor appeard in the door- way and
a 3tumble over a "spread" piled
all over the front porch that he had
more to thank the "night maraud
ers" for more sweets than their lav
ish sweetness of song. The most
beautiful and touching feature of
the "serenade" was that every bun
dle and package bore a delicate and
characteristic scriptural offering
the sentiment felt by each for the
faithful and humble servant of God.
All the churches were equally well
represented in giving cheer to a sad
ly broken and shattered, almost des
olate home, once so full of joy and
gladness, when the hearthstone was
blessed by the pure, christian life
of the sweetest and best of mothers
and now the saintly guardian of a
widely scattered family.
The wild rose, with its ecarlet
hued face of bold aud brazen fore
ward and its highly perfumed dress
of loud and gaudy green, one day
approached the queenly, majestic
Marechal Niel and said: "Madam,
I'll give you a big price' to tell why
you are more sought after than 1,
and where it is hidden and by what
secret process you get that rare and
exquisite odor, and that rich and
lovely color of face." Said the cul
tured and refined beauty: "The se
cret is love, purity, unselfishness,
a lowly meekness and disinclination
for parade and show.. But I do not
know from whence that sweetness
you speak of comes, I am uncon
scious of it. If you could but look
deep down into my heart you might
discover what the God of love aud
truth placed there to glorify Him
and bless mankind. It is the bless
ings (not curses) of a bruised heart
and an outraged love."
Friendship is like the soft delica
cy of the aromatic "rose-geranium"
in lhat the more you use it and the
more you crush it the sweeter its
fragrance. And. like the heart
treasure of the rose, above aud be
yond price. x x x
Jumped on a Ten-Penny Nail.
The little daughter of Mr. J. N.
Powell jumped on an inverted rake
made of ten-penny nails, and thrust
one nail entirely through her foot
and a second one half way through.
Chamberlain's Pain Balm was im
mediately applied and five minutes
later the pain had disappeared and
no more suffering was experienced.
In three days the child was wearing
her shoe as usual and with absolute
ly no discomfort. Mr. Powell is a

When things are "the nest" they
become "the best selling." Abra
ham Hare, a leading druggist of
Belleville, O., writes : "Electric
Bitters are the best selling bitters I
have handled in 20 years." You
know why? Most diseases begin in
disorders of stomach, liver, kidneys,
bowels, blood and nerves. Electric
Bitters tones up the stomach, regu
lates liver, kidneys, and bowels,
puiifies the blood, strengthens the
nerves; hence, cures multitudes of
maladies. - It builds up the entire
system. Puts new life and vigor

Dr. C. J. Moffett My Dear Sir:
Justice to you demands that I should
give you my experience with your
excellent medicine, Teethina. Our
little girl, just thirteen months old,
has had much trouble teething. Ev
ery remedy was exhausted in the
shape of preseriptions from family
physicians. Her bowels continued
to pass off pure blood, and a burn
ing fever continued for days at a
time. Her life was almost despaired
of. Her mother determined to try
Teethina, and in a day or two there
was a great change new life had
returned, the bowels were regular,
and, thanks to Teethina, the little
babe is now doing well. Yours,

Execution of Czolgosz.
Aublex, N. Y., Oct. 26. Presi
dent McKinley's assassin is dead.
Leon F. Czolgosz, alias Fred Nei
mann, was successfully electrocuted
at Auburn prison this morning. He
was prooouDced dead at 7.15 a. m.
W ith the purely animal courage that
had sustained him, and the innate
coward within him struggling to his
ips, the youthful murderer, hated
by the nation and the world at large,
paid the penalty for his fearful
crime. Iu less time almost than it
takes to tell it, the deadly current
had passed through his body, rub-
bins: out his miserable existence
with merciful and uneiring swift
ness. Seated m the cnair with the
fatal current about to be applied,
Czolgosz, facing the witnesses, said:
"I shot the President because I
thought it would benefit the good
working people of all nations. I
am cot sorry for my crimed" .
During this tii.e the attendants
were busy strapping him to the
chair. His last words were :
"1 am heartily sorry I did not see
This was said after the strap had
been drawn across his face, yet his
words were distinctly heard by all
who were in the room.
Wretched creature that he was,
he went to his death unsupported by
the comforting thought that he had
made peace with his God.
For the first time in the history
of the prison, a condemned man
marched to the fatal chair unaccom
panied by a spiritual adviser. Spir
itual aid had been offered him, but
he scorned the entreaties of the
priests who, visited him in his last
hours, and last night when his
brother visited him Le declared that
he wanted no priest, wanted no one
to pray for his soul.

The New Memphis Telephone
Company has taken an important
step in the fulfilment of its promise
to cover Memphis territory with
long-distance lines. On yesterday
they closed a deal with the Progress
Telephone Company, which has two
thriving exchanges at bolivar anil
Whiteville, Tenn., with long-dis
tance lines connecting the two towns
General Manager Warren, of the
New Memphis Company, gives this
information, and savs it is the in
tention of his company to build up
first-class independent exchanges in
the towns of Bolivar, Whiteville
and Somerville; and to connect these
and all intermediate points with
Memphis at an early day.
"Of course," Mr. Warren says
"the most important matter is the
completion of our local exchange
which will probably require two
months vet. We shall then build
generally throughout what is con
sidered 'Memphis territory,' having
already made extensive plans to that
- What these plans are Mr. War
ren declined to discuss, but promise
that the business needs of Memphi

Expressions of Sympathy. !
We, the ladies of the Home Mis-!

beloved secretary, Mrs. Alice Har-

hour of deep bereavraent iu the loss
of her much beloved son. God in
Ilia providence has seen best to call
nm hence, and while His will and
dispensations are mysterious to us,
we cannot solve them; yet we know
Our Heavenly Father doeth all
things well, and what we cannot
understand now will some day be
made plain, and we cau see why
this young life, so full of promise
and hope, was taken, and why these
dear ones must sit again at Marah'd
stream and drink this bitter, bitter
cup. Oh, may a loving Father give
them all grace to say aud feel, "1 ny
will, not mine be done, knowing
that some-day, in His own good
time, God will show ns the right
side of the life we are slowly weav
ing here, and we will hear the Mas
ter say, as He said to Peter, "what
do thou knewest not now, but
thou shalt know hereafter." There
are many things in each of our lives
which we know not the meaning of
now; places where G-id Btops us and
makes us come apart aud rest a
while, when we need rest; places
where He finds us wandering out of
the way and stops us short; where
He unties our hands aud gives us
time to think. Yes, these are Ions',
weary days we are sometimes called
to epend; days of thwarted plans
when everything crosses ourwills;
days when we are driven to the wall
and stand with hands hanging help
lessly at our sides the long "rainy
days" life's cold northeasters that
seem to chill the very marrow of
our souls. Yet, amid all this, let
us, like one of old, look up and say
"though He slay me, yet will I trust
Him," and stagger not at His prov
idences; His grace shall be sufficient
to thy day; and may you realize the
fullness of His ove aud all the com
forts of His grace, in this dark
hour, is the prayer of those who
love you much.
