The following telegram from
Jackson appeared in the Commer
cal Appeal of last Friday: "Monroe
Kellar, a weU known young man,
died at the hospital of appendicitis
at an early hour this morning. Mr.
Kellar was a member of the Second
Tennessee regiment in the Cuban
war and was a general favorite with
those who knew him best. He was
reared at Toone, Tenn., a few miles
south of Jackson. The deceased is
a relative of Col. Kellar AnderRon."
Mr. J. M. Avenl, of Hickory
Valley, was in Bolivar Saturday.
The object of his visit was to secure
hunting privileges aud leases for the
pr Section of game. Through the
efforts and energy of Mr. Avent
Hickory Valley has been brought
iuto prominence and is recognized
among sporting roeu throughout the
country as the finest hunting section
iu the South. Several wealthy East
erners have bought property in that
neighborhood, erected handsome
residences thereon, and annually
spend the winter months in pursuit
of the sport that they enjoy: These
gentlemen are a benefit to the coun
ty, as well as the community. Mr.
Avent informs the Bulletin that
he can locate others in close prox
imity to Bolivar if the necessary
privileges can be secured. What
he desires is a continuous stretch,
beginning at the Southern Railroad
on the south, extending to Hatchie
River, on the north. With the ex
ception of one or two farms, we un
derstand, he has the desired terri
tory. Mr. Avent desires, and, we
take pleasure iu saying, deserves,
the hearty co-operation of our peo
ple in his efforts.
