honor of being the ranking Demo
cratic member of the Commit-ee on
Postoffices and Territories. .Mr,
Sims is still the ranking Democratic
member on the War Claims Com
mittee and is asain a member of the
District of Columbia Committee

oruer mat lie might cro on some
other committee having interest
nearer to his constituents, but
Sneaker Cannon would not hear to
it. Mr. Sims and Mr. Cowherd

Mr. Ijraines fares badly, getting
his former assignment on the Com
mittee on Coinage, Weights and
Measures, the duties of which are
usually usurped by the Committee
on Banking aud Currency. Mr
Gaines made a fight for member

by leader Williams, but was turned
down by Speaker Cannon in favor
of Mr. Humphreys (Miss), a brand
new member. Mr. Uannon gave as

The Missouri Congressman who
remarked that the people of his
State "didn't care a d n" whom
the Democrats nominated "they

was necessary for him to make it
so emphatic, either. Chattauooga
Card To The Public.
In view of the fact that many of
my friends are making inquiry as to
whether or not I will be a candidate
for reelection to the office of Trus
tee, I have deemed it proper to thus
publicly state that I will not be a
candidate; and in making this an
nouncement, I also wish to return
sincere thanks for the generous sup
port accorded me in the past and to
assure each and every one of my
friends that they will ever hold a
warm place in my heart.

Gertrude Williams, the youngest
daughter of Mr. H. E. and J. Wil
hams, died in the 9th district of
Hardeman Couuty, Tenn., Nov. 18
1903. She was born in Bolivar,
Sept 13, 1894, aud was therefore a
little over nine veais of age. The
funeral services were conducted bv
Rev. TJ. A. West, of the Baptist
Church, who officiated at the mar
riage of her parents. Little Git
trude, at the age of four years, met
with a painful "accident by tailing
from a swing, which deprived her
of the free use of one of her limbs
Ever afterwards she was compelled
to use a crutch, and yet, under this
affliction, in the horne,on the street,
every where she was bright, cheer
ful and happy. Meet her where
you will, aud she had a pleasant
word and a bright smile for every
one. While with her sister, Mrs.
Jesse Norment, in Bolivar, she at
tended Sunday school in the Pies
byterian Church, and by the inter
ests she manifested in the iessons
and by her bright, cheerful manner
greatly endeared herself to her
teacher. She had expressed to her
father before the fatal sickness
desire to unite with the church
God, showing a thoughtfulnees
one eo young. She
course, greatly missed
for by rtasou of this affection aud
her pleasant, cheerful manner, she
had completely won the hearts of
all, and was the pet in the family.
Sorrowing hearts, I know, would
like to ask, why this affliction to
little Gertrude; why this death; why
this sorrow in the home? But the
Savior has said, 'what I do thou
knowest not now, but thou ehalt
know hereafter." In that blessed
"hereafter" the Master will explain
it all the affliction, the death, the
sorrow. Let us not judge before
that time. Let us wait patiently
till the storms of life are over, and
