FRIDAY, MAY 1, 1903.
Look out for the train when

Tub kiss President Roosevelt
gave those babies out west will
linger for life, at least in the memo
ry of the mothers.
It is said that Judge John V.
Wright, a distinguished Tennes
sean, who has been a resident of
Washington for the past iwenty
years, will soon take the lecture
platform. His lecture will be de
voted to his personal reminiscenses
and the proceeds will be equally
divided between his own needs and
funds for homes for. Confederate
Mb. R. II. Green, of Covington,
has been appointed Assistant Com
missioner of Agriculture for West
Tennessee. Mr. Green was reared
on a farm and successfully followed
agricultural pursuits for a number
of years, hence will be familiar
with the duties the position carries.
He is well knowu in Hardeman
County, having been connected
with the Bulletin for several
years as editor, and his many friends
here extend congratulations.
The legislature refused to appro
priate the $75,000 asked, for the
purpose of establishing an In
dustrial and Reform School in
Memphis, and now the citizens of
Memphis have undertaken to raise
the amount. For this purpose, Dr.
J. P. Douglas, the Superintendent
of the Western Hospital, who
knows the benefits to be derived
from and appreciates the needs of
such an institution, was first to
8ubscribe,authorizing the committee
to draw on him for one hundred

they will use every effort to accom
plish this end. It must be born
in mind, however, that railroad

benefit of the public, and it may b
that later on our people will be
called upon for financial assistance

Cleveland Will Be the Star.
The Governors of many States
are now en route to St. Louis to at
tend the formal dedication of the
Louisiana Purchase Exposition on
30th inst. It will be a great oc
casion, no doubt, for aside fronr the
tremendous scope and
the exposition to be opened next
year, and the number of State ex
ecutives aud other distinguisher
persons present, it will bring to
gether the President of the United
States aud the only living ex-Pres
ident. Both Mr. Roosevelt and
jut. tJieveianu win speait ana we
may expect to hear
worthy of the day.
Particular interest attaches to the
address to be delivered by the for
mer President. Not since he made
his tour of the country sixteen
years ago has he been west of the
Alleghany mountains. But he hasn't
been forgotten. It is true that by
many he is recalled to mind only to
be criticised or abused for supposed
misdeeds in office, but to the majori
ty he is still the stalwart exponent
of sound sense and stable public
policy. . Of late he ha3 come into
the public eye very prominently,
by reason of his counsels to the
party that abaudoned him seven
years ago. Strange to say that his
reappearance is resented only by a
comparatively small number of
those who formerly made him a
target for their darts. By most it
seems rather to be welcomed as a
sign of returning Democratic, har
mony upon the basis of Democratic
The appearance of Mr. Cleveland
at St. Louis, therefore, may serve
to show in the reception given him,
how far he has been restored in the
esteem of his fellow Democrats; and
this despite the fact that the oc

At all events he will attract more
attention than the younger man who
now fills the high office vacated by j
him on the 4tb of March, 1897. j

when closing his speech to night ' following extracts: -
at a banquet in the Battle House,
announced that he had decided to
quit politics and devote himself
to the work of Scottish-Rite Mason
ry. llesaid that he had been hon
ored by re-election to Congress nine
timep, and also La 1 been elected
Grand Commander of the Southern
Supreme Council, thirty-third de
gree Scottish Rite Free Masonry
and that the duties of the two offices
conflicted so that it was necessary
for him to give up one or the other,
ana that he had now decided to
give up politics entirely and to de
vote all his time in the future to
the futherance of Scottish Rite
Masonry. The announcement
which was then made for the firs
time was received with a great
demonstration of applause. Mr
Richardson is the highest ranking
Mason in the world.

Obion, Tenn., April 25. (Spe
cial.) Representative Bob Ogles-
by was given a surprise by his
many friends and admirers here
last evening. A number of repre
sentative citizens met in the parlors
of Col. S. D. Wilson aud dispatched
a messenger for Mr. Oglesby, ad
vising him that his presence was
desired that he might give an ac
count of his actions in the legisla
ture. me suspense was soon re
lieved, when Col. T. J. Ogilvie
arose, and on behalf of his admiring
friends, presented Representative
Oglesby with a handsome gold
headed cane as a token of their es
teem for the stand he took on the
temperance question, thereby rid
ding Obion of the saloon evil.
The gift was accepted by Mr.
Oglesby in a manner that showed he
was deeply moved by the occasion

ity a Persistent Cough, but Perma
nently Cured by Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy.
Mr. II. P. Barbagf, a student at
law, in Greenville, S. C. had been
troubled for lour or five years with
a continuous cough which he says
"greatly alarmed me, causing me to
fear that I was in the first stage of
consumption." Mr. Burbage having
seen Chamberlain s Cough Remedy
advertised concluded to try it: "I
soon felt a remarkable change and
after using two bottles of the t A'enty
five cent size, was permanently
cured." Sold by Cox & Co, Bolivar;

Too Great a Risk.
Iu almost every neighborhood
someone has died from an attack of
colic or cholera morbus, often be
fore medicine could be procured or
a physician summoned. A reliable
remedy for these diseases should be
kept at hand. 1 he risk is too great
for anyone to take. Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Reme
dy has undoubtedly saved the lives
of more people and relieved more
pain and suffering than any other
medicine iu use. It can always be
depended upon. If or sale by Cox &
Co., Bolivar; Bailey & Aldridge,
The world has not more con
spicuous illustration ot lue truth
that nothing is so unprofitable as
wickedness. The thief robs him
self. The adulterer pollutes him
self. The murderer inflicts a deep
er wound upon himself than that
which kills his victim. Behind
every criminal in the universe, si-
lent but relentless, stands with !
uplifted blade, the shadow of ven
geance and retribution."
