Captain Tiioma8 II. Paine, Com
missioner of Agriculture under Mc
Millin's administration, and a
prominent citizen of West Tennes

Mr. L. G. Wood, formerly editor

was a veteran of two wars, Mexican

the first Company that went out

character has gone to his reward.
In the democratic primary
election held in Mississippi Thurs
day of last week, Money was nomi
nated for United States Senator
over Longino. In the contest for
Governor, Vardaman led, but failed
to receive a majority over Critz and
Noel, hence a -second primary will
be held ou the 27th inst., between
the two first named.
There is a disposition and desire
among all true democrats to get to
gether and present a solid front to
the enemy, but Mr. Bryan continues
to abuse those- who differ with him.
The banner of democracy has twice
trailed in the dust in his hands and
will never again be entrusted to hi3
keeping. Venting his spleen upon
patriotic men who have fought the
battles of democracy for a life-time
will result in no good to Mr. Bryan
and will fall harmlessly on the

gave permission for the use of the
White House lot for an outing for
poor children of the. District, and
philanthropic citizens donated all
the refreshments necessary. At the
last moment a negro wrote to the
President,complaining that the out
ing was for white children exclusive
ly. As a balm for the coloied
brother the Executive forthwith
issued an order withdrawing his
permission for' the use of the
grounds. The Women of the
Rescue League say the white
children shall have the outing if
they have to eDjoy it in the streets
of the city.
Frank Thompson, Chairman of
the State Democratic Executive
Committee, has been feeling the
pulse of Tennesseeane as to their
preference for President. Accord
ing to replies received from 500
letters, sent to men of his own
choosing, Judge Parker, of New
York, is in the lead; but the Judge
says the White House has no
charms for him, that he prefers to
wear the judicial ermine. To
amuse himself, Thompson should
eliminate Judge Parker from the
race, send out a second installment
of letters to the 500, and perhaps
he and they will settle the im
portant matter, for Tennessee at
least, if not for the nation.

The community was deeply
grieved this morning at the an
nouncement of the death of Miss
Nelle Clinton, which occurred last
night at 10 o'clock at the home of
her father, Mr. S. II. Clinton, on
M ain Street, after a short illness of
typhoid fever. She had the tender-
est care and attention of skilled
physicians, trained nurses and kind
friends. She was a favorite here,
one of the most popular young
ladies in Bolivar, bright entertain
ing, cultured and beautiful. At
the ' time of her death she was
twenty years of age. The grief-
stricken family have the sympathy
of our people. Iler remains will be
buried this afternoon in Union
The following dispatch from
Murfreesboro appeared in the Nash
ville American of Sunday: "The
family of Mr. Ware, the Episcopal
Rector at this place, was seriously
poisoned last night by eating ice
cream. Three doctors were called
in as soon as they became sick, and
after several hours of hard work all
the patients were relieved. If medic
al assistance had not been secured
immediately upon the first signs of
the poison taking effect, the doctors
say the results would probably have
been fatal. The cause is attributed
to the usual ice cream poison that
follows exposure of the cream in a
damp place, such as a cellar,"
Strikes are something out of
the ordinary in the South, and es
pecially in Hardeman County, but
one is on here, on a small scale,
among the stave haulers. Located
about one mile west of Crainesville
is the Clark-Wright Stave Factory,
and upon the yards 000,000 staves
are piled. For the past two weeks,
twenty-five or thirty citizens of the
neighborhood, who have teams,
have been engaged in hauling these
staves to Bolivar, a distance of ten
miles, at the rate of $3.75 per
thousand. With a few exceptions,
the haulers decided that the price
was insufficient, and determined to
demand a raise of twenty-five cents
per thousand. On last Saturday
afternoon, the local manager of the
factory -was notified to that effect.
He informed the haulers that he
would communicate with the head
management and lay the matter
before them. In the meantime, a
majority of the stave haulers are at
tending protracted meetings, resting
from their labors and awaiting re
The second and last day's
session of the Sunday School Con
vention closed Thursday of last
week. While the attendance was
not large, considerable interest was
manifested by all delegates present,
who are earnest and sincere in the
work, and much good is expected to
result. In order to better organize
the Sunday School work, it was
suggested that a large map of the
county ' be made, divided into
districts, showing the location ofeach
church. Mr. C. D. Durrett, of the
Presbyterian Church, Bolivar, was
unanimously chosen to superintend
this work, with assistants to be
appointed from each district. Mr.
W. A. Caruthers was reelected
President, Mr. R. D. Whitley,
Vice President, and Mr. C. D. Dur
rett was elected Secretary . and
Treasurer. Through the committee
on resolutions, thanks were return
ed to the people of Bolivar for their
hospitality, to Miss King, of Mem
phis, for her efficient work, and to
Miss Mary Smith for her services
as assistant secretary.
Quite a surprise was sprung
upon our community Friday morning
when Mr. S. T. Foote returned
with his bride, Miss Marguerite
Luther. The marriage took place
Thursday evening at the home of
Col. and Mrs. Tip Gamble, on
Summer Street, Nashville, the
ceremony being performed by Rev.
J. L. Brownlee, witnessed by a
limited number. Both of the con
tracting parties are members of old
and aristocratic families. The
groom is one of our roost popular
young men, held in high esteem on
account of his honorable and manly
qualities and is a successful and
substantial planter. His bride, the
youngest sister of Mr. F. S. Luther,
steward of the Western Hospital,
has been a resident of Nashville for
several years and an occasional
visitor to our city. By her amia
bility and womanly attributes she
endeared herself to all who had the
pleasure of her acquaintance. Thei

another of our landmarks, "Uncle"
Jim Hackney, and on the same day,
as the sun was sinking beneath the
western horizon, his body was laid
to rest in Piney Grove Cemetery,
the funeral services being attended
by a large concourse of friends
and conducted by Rev. W. Q.
Young, pastor of Piney Grove
Church, of which deceased was a
consistent member. -
James Hackney was born in
Cheatham County, North Carolina,
April 10, 183G, and came to Harde
man County in 1861. He enlisted
in the Confederate service, in a
company organized by Col. Jack
Neely at Bolivar, and after one
year returned to his home. On the
17th of March, 1863, he was mar
ried to Miss Fannie Lambert. Their
union was blessed with fiv 1 children,
two of whom survive, John Hack
ney and Mrs. J. K McDaniel.
The subject of this sketch was
a good man in word and in deed,
kind to each and every one, and
always a pleasant word for all,
especially the young and the doors
of his hoase, like those of his heart,
were open to all. Let me say to
the grief stricken widow, children
and grand children, that beyond
that "narrow se3" he now dwells,
amid the delightful scenes of the
"other shore." He was of an unusual
ly diffident and reserved disposition,
hence no great demonstrations or
professions marked his associations,
but within his breast dwelt generous
and noble impulses. The great1
concourse of friends who followed
his remains to their last resting
place attest the respect and esteem
in which he was held. He was a
kind husband, indulgent father and
grand 'father. The heart of the
writer goes out in deepest svmpathy
to the grief-stricken, sorrowing
widow; but we must remember that
earth hath no sorrows that heaven
cannot heal. Our comfort is in the
promises of the Saviour, who dieu
to save all who put their trust in
