tho youthful days of brother Wc
were not spent upon llower.v beds

He therefore spent what limo'bo ci

Brother Welch said ho rented lui
for a while but was soon convince
that the rent system was not enk

You can give them to your basket

HOTS FROM DARGAN,
Some few of thc farmers in this sec-?
1 tion arc through "laying by" their cot-,
ton. The crops in this section are fine,
so the (armers are still in good heart for
a good crop this year.
We regret to hear of thc death of the
little 15 months old child ot Mr. and
?Mrs. Claude "atc, of Brightsvllle. Wc
also sympathize with Mr. and Mrs. B.
F. Moore, of Adamsville in thc loss of
their oldest child, She was about 15
years old,
We are glad to hear that our friend
Mr, Charley Sherrin is able to visit his
lather In Hebron.
Thc pic-nic at the old Factory came
off on the 12th. About 9 o'clock the
buggies, carriages and road carts began
to roll up to thc place well loaded with
all ages, and Smyna rations. Gibson
Station was represented by some ot its
fairest daughters, and handsome young
men, About 12 o'clock it was announc
ed that dinner was ready. Oi all pic
nics we never enjoyed one any better
than the Smyrna Sunday School pic?nic.
About 3 o'clock the pic nicers began
to leave to attend the funeral of Mr, B.
V, Moore's daughter.
Married on the 14 inst., Mr. Charley
Odam, of Brightsvllle, to Miss Alice
Bennett, of Hebron. We wish the young
and happy couple a long life.

Spcnkin of tho thrifty lawyers and
lat foes, tho achievement of Juago
Hilton of Now York in this lino places
nm sovoral lops ahead of tho wljolo
egal procession. Ho had tho gfood
fortune to win the confidence of Alex- .
nider T. Slowart, tho "merchant '
irinco," who, partly as an act of
t'rieudship and partly as compensation
for professional sorvicos, bequeathed '
nim $1,000,000. Four days aftor
Mr. Stowart's death, in consideration
:>f that legacy, Judge Hilton ncquriod
from Mrs. Stewart a transfer to him
self of Stowart's intorest-about 90
uer cont.-in tho. business of A. T.
Stewart & Co. This was in 1870. In
tho next nine yoars ho acquired tho
Stowart building, various bank stocks
?id other property that had hoon
Mrs, Stwart's, and at hor death tito
accounts ho kopt for hor s' >wcd hor
in his debt about $1,10.0,000. Tho
act result was that Judge Hilton
passed from an ordinarily successful
littornoy in 1876 to tho possession
of from $11,000,000 to $16,900,000
with no allowanco for increado by in
vestment or otliorwiso-by 1886, when
Mrs. Stowart died. Tho magnificent
estate which it took tho most success'
