Senatob Hoar, of Massachusetts,
died last week in his 79th year. He
was a ripe ecbolar and a man of
great ability. In politics, he was a
republican, and though differing
with nis party on mauy questions,
he was a partisan, and alway3 voted
with the republicans. During heat
ed debates in the Senate in years
past, he severely criticised the South
and its people; but later he became
an admirer of Southern people, be
cause of virtues frankly conceded,
lie once said of Southerners:
"They have some qualities which
I cannot claim in an equal degree
for the people among whom I my
self dwell. They have an aptness
for command, which makes the
Southern gentleman, wherever he
goea, not a peer only, but a prince.
They have a love of home; they
have, the best of them, and the
most of them, inherited from the
great race from which they came,
the sense of duty and the instinct of
honor, as no other people on the
face of the earth. They have above
all, and giving value to all, that
supreme and superb constancy
which, without regard to personal
ambition, and without yielding to
the temptation of wealth, without
getting tired and without getting
diverted, can pursue a public object,
in and out, year after year and
generation after generation."

PLEADS ELOQUENTLY FOR
Hon. Malcolm R. Patter
son, member of Congress
from the Tenth District,
spoke in the courthouse at
Bolivar Monday. He arrived
on the morning train from the
south and was met at the de
pot by a party of friends, who
escorted him to the Bolivar
Hotel, where his rooms were
crowded by a stream of call
ers until the hour of speak
ing, 11 o'clock.
Quarterly Court was in
session, but through courtesy
to the distinguished gentle
man, a recess of two hours
Mr. Patterson was intro
duced by Hon. James W.
Jones, congressional commit
teeman of Hardeman
County. The building was
packed with representative
men from every district in
the county, and quite a num
ber of ladies honored the
occasion by their presence.
This was Mr. Patterson's
first appearance in Hardeman
since his renomination, and
he took advantage of the
occasion to return thanks for
the honor, stating that he
had attempted to carry out
the wishes of his constituents.
His speech was devoted al
most entirely to national is
sues, the tariff and trusts, and
to Roosevelt. With telling ef
fect he laid the lash to the
republican party, which he
said was a party of spoils and
loot and not a party of prin
ciple; a party that believed
in the dollar and not in the
man; a party of broken prom
ises, which legislated for the
few against the many; a par
ty which clothed the negio
with the elective franchise
thereby committing one of
the greatest crimes of the
age; a party of reckless ex
travagance, with a dangerous,
inconsistent, insincere, un
dignified leader, who was not
only suspicious of his fellow
man, but a blackguard, total
ly unfitted for the honorable
and exalted position of presi
dent. The large audience follow
ed closely the brilliant and
graceful speaker and ap
plauded him liberal.
Mr. Patterson is popular in
Hardeman. His speech fired
the democratic heart and his
numerous friends and ad
mirers hope to hear his elo
quent voice again before the
On Thursday evening, Sept.
29th, in the parlors of the Southern
Hotel, Jackson, Mr. John Frank
Miller and Miss Ora Pearl Moore
were united in marriage, Rev. G.
M. Savage officiating. The groom
holds a responsible position at the
Western Hospital and is held in
high esteem, and his biide, a
daughter of Esquire James Moore,
of Vildo, is one of the most popular
and charming women of our county.

The Hardeman County Medical
Society met at Grand Junction,
Wednesday at 10 a.m., Dr. J. D.
Sasser, president, in the chair, with
fair attendance. The good people
of Grand Junction prepared a warm
welcome in the shape of a good
dinner, which was enjoyed by those
present. Dr. I. A. McSwaiu, of
Paris, was in attendance and gave
an excellent talk on county organ
ization and medical legislation.
Dr. It. W. Tate reported cases that
were discussed quite at length bj
all present. Then a general dis
cussion followed upon various med
ijal subjects of gre3t interest to the
profession. The Society adjourned
to meet at Bolivar next April.
REWARDS FOR GOOD WORK.
National and Tennessee Executive
Committees Offer Flags to Coun
ties Showing Largest In
crease in Vote.
Plans are already forming which
contemplate a feature for the next
Democratic State Convention in
Tennessee which will make the
meeting of the party's representa
tives two years hence notable indeed.
Chairman Thomas Taggart, of
Indiana, of the National Democrat,
ic Executive Committee, will be one
of the visiting speakers during that
This feature willbe the sequence
to arrangements which have been
made by the State Executive Com
mittee to reward the party workers
in those counties which make the
best ehowings" at the polls for Par
ker and Frazier ia the present cam
paign. The National Committee his also
taken an interest in the matter.
Briefly stated, the plan is that the
county which rolls up the biggest
increase in the vote for the pres
idential ticket over the record of
1900 will be presented a silken ban
ner, worth 100, by the National
Committee, and Chairman Taggart
will come to Tennessee to make the
The State Democratic Committee
will also give a hundred dollar ban
ner to that county which shows the
largest increase in the vote over the
record of the gubernatorial contest
of 1902, and in both these contests
only the presidential vote, on the
one hand and the gubernatorial vote,
on the other, in 1900-4 and 1902-4,
respectively, will be considered.
Chairman Frank M. Thompson,
of the State Committee, will make
the second presentation address;
that is, the one to the delegation
from that county which wins in the
contest over an increase in the
It is believed that this should at
tract quite a bit of rivalry amongst
those counties whose Democrats are
wont to vie with each other as to
who comes from the banner county.
As yet, of course, details for the
presentations" have not been con
sidered, but the Democrats who
have taken an interest in offering
these prizes sincerely hope that the
rewards will inspire the various
committees in all the counties to do
their utmost to bring out for Parker
and Frazier the largest vote ever
polled in the history of the State.
Watterson's Picture of Parker.
Henry Watterson, editor of the
Courier-Journal, Kentucky's great
est newspaper, says:
"A gentleman, a simple, unaffect
ed gentleman, blue-eyed, red-haired,
brainy and brawny: not quite so tall
as Jefferson, nor so short as Tilden,
but enough to give Democracy as
surance of a man. If every voter
of the United States could meet
Judge Parker, he would get three
fourths of them. Emphatically, he
i the man we have been looking
for, decidedly the man wanted in
the White House.
"In the first place, there ia no
nonsense about him. He is as plain
and unpretending as an old shoe,
and he fits like one and wears like
one. An eminent jurist undoubted
ly the Chief Justice of the Supreme
Court of the Empire State of New
York could be none other versed
in the law, morally a bedrock of
sober counsels, intellectually a very
lighthouse of lucidity and learning.
Yea, and a Democrat a Democrat
of the school of Jefferson and Jack
son and Tilden."
In Memory of Hugh Tate, Jr.
"Into the Light."
He ia not with us ! Only the
memory of his happy life, his smile
so clear and true. We try .to look
across the great divide encompass
ed by the cares of earth we fail to
"see" and mystery holds us these
cares and mysteries of life which he
has cast aside forever.
He is not with us. The manly
youth, with heart so full of love
and sympathy for all, so brave to
do the duties near at hand, so cheer
ful, helpful, thoughtful, has gone
beyond to continue in that other
life the work so nobly begun in
this. His spirit and example will
ever be an incentive to his young
companions who miss him from
The memory of the brightness
that was always near him tells us
be is free. We miss him, but we
know the way is straight before
What we have lost has ben
to him the greatest gain
not with us, but we shall go to him. i

Again wedding bells have pealed
forth joyously in our midst. On
Wednesday evening a large crowd
assembled ia the Methodist Church
to witness the marriage ceremony
of Miss Ethel Campbell and Dr.
Daniel Wade Kelly, of Selma, La.
Mrs. C. M. Wellons and her
corps of willing helpers never dis
played more artistic ability thau in
the decorations for this pink and
white wedding. Light .cedar dra
peries were drawn to one side and
disclosed the chancel railing festoon
ed with vines dotted with white
roses. At each end stood pots of
Htately palms and teathery white
chrysanthemums. In the corners
of the chancel were jars of band
some pink chrysanthemums and
graceful ferns. The organ was hid
den beneath a bank of greens and
rosea and surmounted by six tall
altar ciSndles, that sheda soft
radiance over the floral scene. To
the sweet strains of the wedding
march as brought out by Mrs. T.
M. Moore, Mes3rs. Johnson Blair,
Frank Prewitt down the right aisle
and Hamlin Williams and James
Emerson down the left ushered in
the bridal party. The bride, beauti
ful in shimmering silk, and filmy
veil and carrying a shower bouquet
of bride roses walked down the
left aisle leaning upon the arm of
her maid of honor, Miss Mary Em
erson, gowned iu white and carry
ing pink roses. The handsome
groom and his best man, Dr. Luther
Stewart, of Louisiana, came down
the opposite aisle. Entering ,the
chancel the bride aud groom stood
beneath three beautiful bells wreath
ed in white carnations, asparagus
and ferns, which seemed to add
their golden notes to the silvery
tones of the organ as it softly told
the Schubert "Serenade" in pleas
ing accompaniment to the solemn
words of the marriage service as
said by Rev. J. W. Blackard, D. D.,
of Jacksou. After the benediction
the couples left the church in a re
