Elsewhere appears a notice
calling a meeting of the Hardeman
County Truckers' Association for
Thursday of next week. This as
eocvxtion which is practically in its
infancy has already accomplished
much good, and is destined to do
more. Those who engaged in
truck farming last year derived such
satisfactoi y returns that they have
decided to increase their acreage
the present year and we are reliably
informed that quite a number of
others will go iuto the business.
We hope the above mentioned
meeting will be well attended
The importance of selecting good
and competent men for jury service
cannot be over estimated. Upon
the decision of juries human life
rests, matters of equity and justice
depend, hence only the best citizens
should be chosen. The old system
of selecting jurors has been abandon
ed by a number of counties in Ten
nessee and instead special acts have
been passed, empowering the Cir
cuit Judge in certain counties to ap
point a commission of three men,
who select a venire. The result
has proven satisfactory and the
personnel of the juries has been

xVtlanta, Ga., Jan. 11th.
Funeral exercises, which will
be participated in by distin
guished men of the south,
will be held over the remains
of Gen. John B. Gordon on
next Thursday in this city.
The exercises, which will be
of a eulogistic character, will
be conducted in the House of
Representatives in the State
House in this city, and
statesmen as well as veteran
followers of the lamented
chieftain will take part. It
was decided late last night
by the Gordon family not to
leave Miami with the body
of Gen. Gordon until Tues
day morning, and the part'
will reach Atlanta the follow
ing Wednesday morning.
Washington, Jan. 8th.
Congress has declared war on
the Mexican boll weevil.
The House to-day passed an
of $500,000 for the extermi
nation of the pest, and for
stamping out the foot and
mouth disease now prevalent
among New England cattle.
This will provide $250,000
for each purpose.
The experts say that the
Mexican weevil has only been
known to this country for the
last twelve years. Its devel
opment has been slow, owing
to the sparsely-settled Texas
Mexican boundary line, bu
in the past three years it has
so multiplied that unless
checked, it threatens to de

More Trouble For Howard.

George Frederick Burgoyue How
ard, who has spent several years in
the House of Correction at Detroit,
Mich., on the charge of swindling,
is to be prosecuted by the United
States postal authorities for subor
nation of perjury.
Howard's time in the House of
Correction will expire in February.
Major Little, postoffice inspector
for this district, who ten years ago
was instrumental in his capture and
conviction, has been ordered to
prepare evidence to be submitted at
Jackhon, Tenn., whither Howard
will be taken from Detroit.
Howard's identity was discovered
while he wan preaching in Tennes
see. It was then alleged he h id
swindled many persons through
Tories of lictitious English entalen
and had operated all ove the country.
Confessions alleged to have been
made by witnesses will be the basis

good behavior, he succeeded in
gaming a few privileges out of the

of the walls of the penitentiary and
win freedom. Friends on the out
side furnished him with the clothing
and funds, and he made for a cli
mate that was best suited to his
From Columbus Howard moved
toward the Northwest. Soon he
became involved in alleged swindles
and in less than a yeai's time he

sent out that he has confessed to
various other crimes and after his
release is ordered he will be tried
for the third time for violation of
