Tuesday evening a large delegation
of Republicans drove to Florence and

John M. Williams, Republican can

The trial of Verner Townjcy, for
the killing of his brother Nick, was
called up in Judge Kinsey's court in
St. Louis, Monday, and was continued
owing to the death of one of the twin
babies of Mrs. N. A. Townley, widow
of man who was slain in the tragedy,
which occurred at Union Station in
that city in August. The case is set
for December 4th. W. R. Townley,
father, and two brothers, John and
Thomas, were in St. Louis this week
to look after the interests of Verner.
Last night was hallowe'cn, and
aside from a few pranks in which sev
eral gates were stood on their heads
and loose obstacles misplaced, the
witches, (real live ones), did not
do anything very desperate. Vou
could see small parties of home-grown
witches moving about in the dim rays
of the moonlight, but they were just a
little too noisy to impersonate the
ancient "spooks," hence it proved
a game of "run big fraid, or little fraid
'ill git you," and after their chalk
and soap had given out, and all the
stray leaves were snugly placed on
numerous front porches, the panto
mime of hallowe'cn subsided, antl
the remainder of the night was as
silent as a graveyard and as lifeless as
is thi' place of business of, the man

John Allee has been hauling tiff for

Chill for- Chilly Voters.
The ladies of the Presbyterian
church have conceived a plan to warm
things up next Tuesday while the
election is going on. If matters
begin to look gloomy, or the candi
dates or voters on either side have a
chilly feeling under the collar, the
ladies offer a quick, effective cure in
a bowl of red-hot chili. The lunch
will be served at a handy place on the
Square, and if there is one thing more
than another that will put "ginger"
into election day hustling, it is a bowl
of steaming, soul-stirring chili, right
off the pepper vines. Give the ood
ladies a fair show, and they will carry
the, election. Have a chili, boys I
