The Governor of Mississippi
wears his hair entirely too long.
Thk price of cotton is declining,
and those who claim to be posted
predict a farther drop. Neverthe
less, producers are holding, and a
very large per cent, of the crop in
this county remains to be marketed.
A dozen magistrates could do
the work that forty-seven are now
doing in Hardeman County with
greater satisfaction to the people
and less cost to the tax payers. We
have yet to hear of a single county
redislricted that has cot been
pleased with results.

Complete official returns from
every county in the state except
two give the following vote in the
Gubernatorial race: Frazier 129,
480; Littleton 101,343; Frazier'
plurality 28,137. No returns have
been received from White or Union
Counties. McMilliu's majority in
White County four years ago was
1,010 and McCall carried Union
County by 937. Unofficial advices
from the two counties indicate that
Frazier's plurality in Whije will be
slightly greater than Littleton's ma
jority in Union County, making the
democratic plurality iti the 6tate in
excess of 28,0QD. The total vote
in the state will be slightly in ex
cess of 235,000, which is nearly
40,000 less than the vote four years
ago, and almost 90,000 below that
of 1896.- Gov. -Frazier's majority
will exceed that received by Mc
Millin in 1900 by over 2,000 and
will be almost two thousand larg
than the plurality given Turney in
1892. It i9 the largest majority
given a democratic candidate for
Governor in a Presidential year
since 1876, when James D. Porter
received a plurality of 45,000.
LEE CHANDLER CAUGHT.
Oil the evening of Sept.
13, 1901, Hardy Walton, a
highly respected farmer, an
inoffensive, harmless citizen,
was killed a few miles from
Bolivar. He was assaulted
by Taylor Chandler and his
son, .Lee (Jhandler. liie
father is said to have provok
ed the difficulty, and his son
came to his assistance, deal
ing Walton heavy blows over
the head with a plank, from
the effects of which Walton
died several hours later.
Taylor Chandler was arrest
ed the following day and has
since been confined in jail
here. Lee Chandler made
his escape. The Governor
offered a reward of 150.00
for his arrest and conviction,
which was supplemented by
an additional reward of $25.00
from Sheriff Smith. Des
criptive circulars were print
ed and mailed to different
places where Chandler was
supposed to have gone. At
Cleburne, Tex., a man tally
ing with his description was
detained by the police, and a
special deputy and personal
acquaintance was sent to
identify him, but he proved
to be the wrong man. Chand
ler, in the meantime, claims
to have been at work near
Cairo, 111., and on Saturday
morning last decided to re
turn home. He left the
train at Jackson and walked
to the home of a relative,
Jim Doolon, of the 16th dis
trict of this county, where he
was arrested by Daniels and
Mitchell, young men of the
neighborhood, and was at
once brought to Bolivar and
jailed. Chandler claims that
he returned to surrender to

My father was the most punctual
man I ever knew. He was always
ready for family prayers, for meals,
and met every engagement, social
or business, at the moment. He
expected all of us to be the same,
and taught us the use and necessity
for forming such habits for the con
venience cf all concerned. I never
knew him late for Sunday service at
the Post Chapel. He used to ap
pear some minutes before the rest of
us, in uniform jokingly rallying my
mother for being late, and for for
getting something at the last mo
ment. When he could wait no lon
ger for her, he would say that he
was off, and would march along to
cTiu-ch by himself, or with any ot
the children who were ready. There
he sat, very straight well up in" the
middle aisle and, as I remember,
always became very sleepy, and,
sometimes, even took a little nap
duiing the sermon. At that time,
this drowsiness of my father's was
something awful to me inexplica
ble. I know it was veiy hard for
me to keep awake, and frequently
I did not; but why he, who, to my
mind, could do everything that was
right, without any effort, bbould
sometimes be overcome, I could not
inderstand, and did not try to do so.
