that some sections of that state are
prosperous the rice growing
conn ry especially but in other

product, and where the damaging
boll weevil exists, there is almost
a complete failure. In some places
iih'ni the bounds of th pest, store
houses are deserted, farms offered
for rent or sale at a nominal cost

pitality he has perhaps ent Ttained
more people than any other man in
Hardeman County, and he will be
greatly missed in the community
where he has been an honored and
valued citizen for so many 3 ears
At tbe annual meeting of the
Board of Trustees of the Western
Hospital, held December 19, 1903,
all members were present. The
Board is composed of Dr. W. M.
Wright, ot Huntingdon; John F.
McCallutn, of Memphis; G. T.
Webb, Dr. I H. Hornsby and J.
A. Foster, of Hardeman County.
At this meeting Dr. J. P. Douglas
offered his resignation as Superinten
dent of the institution, to take effect
June, 1904 The Board unanimous
ly refused to accept the resignation,
complimented Dr. Douglas tor his
efficient management aud requested
that he serve at least until the ex
piration of his term (three jfars
hence) and longer if he so desired.
But, for reasons satisfactory to him
self, Dr. Douglas has determined to
sever his connection with the in
stitution. During the fourteen
years of his management, - he has
not alone protected the interests of
slate, but, so far as possible, has
smoothed the rough paths of the
hundreds of unfortunates who have
come under his control. There is
no man with a kinder heart, tender
er feelings or more conscientious
and houest than Dr. Douglas, and
his voluntary retirement from the
positiou that he has filled so long
and so well will be regretted.
--Captain Benjamin F. Binkley
died at his home in Nashville oi
the 17th of December. He was
boru in Davidson County, May 3,
1837, and when a young man came
to Bolivar. When the civil war
began, he enlisted in the Confeder
ate service here as a private in the
Twenty-second Tennessee Regiment.
He was afterwards elected First
Lieutenant and later was promoted
to Captain. He was a gallant
soldier aud participated in many
important engagements. A.t the
battle of Franklin, a miuie ball
pierced his head, entering below the
right eye and came out under the
left ear. He lay upon the field all
night before being carried to the
hospital, and was never again strong
after sustaining thi wound, which!
at times gave h:m much trouble !
After the war he returned to Nash
ville and engaged in the wholesale 1
grocery business. For eight yeais1
he served as register of Davidson '
Cou ity. Later he engaged in the
abstract busiuess and was consider-;
ed authority oih real estate titles,
lie was a memher of the Methodist
Church, a generous, noble man. He
leaves a wife and four children.
Christmas at the Hospital.
Christmas brought cheer and hap
piness to the unfortunates of the
Western Hospital. Santa Claus
made them his annual visit. A
beautiful lieeof holly, erected upon
the stage of the Amusement Hall,
illuminated with one hundred in
candescent lights of red, white and
blue, contained a present for each
and every one of the inmates. The
scene and the remembrances,
judging from their expressions of
delight, at least, temporarily,
brightened their lives.
On Christmas day, they feasted
on seventy-five tine, fat turkeys,
and enjoyed many other good
Oue of the most enjoyable social
features of the holidays was the an

Advice to Boys.
Idleness is the devil's own
workshop, and especially is
this true of boys. We never
f.-el sony for the boy who
has to work, even if it be to
help make a living for him
self and lamily; but we do
pity the boy who lias nothing
to do and whose parents are
able to keep him from hav
ing to labor. The boy who
may work and get only a sti
pend of a dollar, or even
less, a week is learning hab
its of industry. It is from
the boys who begin early the
life of industry that come
the successful men of the
nation. The boy who wails
until he is grown, or until he
acquires an education, before
he begins to labor or learn a
profession i apt to start in
life handicapped and out
stripped by his seemingly
lests loi tuna! e competitor, who
started in ahead of him. It
pays a boy better in a long
iun to work for twenty-five
cents a week and learn a
trade, with habits of applica
tion to business, than to do
nothing and be supported at
the expense of his parents.
