ever assembled at the capitol was
present. A special train bearing
'200 Cliattanooang escorted Mr.
Frazier to Nashville Monday.
There was no military parade
nor elaborateness in the ceremo

due to the aversion of Governor

pomp and display.
People from every soot ion of the
State poured into Nashville, the
largest representation being from
East Tennessee, the home of our
A committee of officials and cit

Died, at 5 p. in., January 17th, Arthur
Limlsey. Hon of Henry ami Lha Linusev,
aged IS years and some months. Arthur
was just blooming into manhood, but he
lias been snatched lrom earth to Heaven
by the rude hand of death to bloom and
bask in the presence of the Kvei lasting
Savior, lie was a consistent member of
the M. E Church, South, and a member
of the Sunday school from boyhood, ever
ready and willing to discharge his duly
in all religious services. lie was an ex
emplary character among the young men
of the neighborhood, an obedient son, an
affectionate brother and a true friend. He
left numberless friends as well as devoted
parents, brothers and sisters to mourn
his departure. But as the Psalmist said
"He can come no more to thoiu, but they
can go to him." The services were con
ducted at the Crooked Creek Cemetery
by Kev. Anderson llassell Sunday after
noon at 3..'!0 o'clock, after which all that
was mortal of Arthur Lindsey was laid to
rest beneath the shady oaks that stand
like sentinels about the home of the dead.

means a no-fence law. The scrub stock
