Friday afternoon about six o'clock
Marshal, V. C. Lyles and Henry Turn
er arrested Ernest Hale and Rudolph
Kelley as they came into town from
the direction of Dorton. They both
seemed drunk and they were found

possession. A 32 Smith and Wessen
pistol was also found in the buggy,
but neither one of the man claimed
Kelley was tried before Esq. O. B.
Rector and U. S. Commissioner J. VV.
Dorton on the charge of being drunk
and disorderly and transporting whis
key. Esq. O. B. Rector bound him to
court in the sum of $500 and Com
missioner Dorton bound him to appear
before -the federal court in the sum
of $1,000 and in default of both bonds
he was turned over to Federal Pro
hibition Agent W. A. Jones, who took
him to Cookeville for safe keeping.
Kelley was arrested Wednesday of

Adams by Marshal Lyles and he had
a quart of whiskey in his possession
at the time. He went on the witness
stand and swore he did not have any
whiskey in spite of the fa:t that
Marshal Lyles saw him pull the quart
of whiskey from his hip pocket- and
set it on a barrel. Marshal Lyles
had the whiskey in court., Recorder
J. D. McClarney and Esq. O. B. Rect
or heard the. case. In the city court
he was fined $50 and by Esq. O. B.
Rector $10. He was allowed to depart
without paying anything or securing
the fines with the understanding that
he would leave town and not return
again. He was allowed to depart on
these easy terms because he is an cx
soldier and is now suffering and has
a tube in his back that is discharging,
as a means to his final recovery.

At Congregational Church; Revival

5 to 18 Inclusive.
The successful evangelist of today
not only must express religious truths
in his message, but those truths must
be expanded in such manner as to
appeal to men and women of all class
es, and must be interpreted in the
light of modern thought.
To appeal to a man's intellect alone
in matters of religion cannot bring
about desired ends, neither will an
appeal to one's emotions bring last
ing results, but to win men and wo
men for the Kingdom of Christ, an
evangelist mu: t be well trained for
his work, he must know human nature
and most important of all, he must
be a thoroughly consecrated christian.
Such a man is Rev. Ralph Gillam.
His message is true, torcetui ana
earnest and appeals
Come and hear- him.
Please remember these meetings in
your prayers, to the end that there
may be a real religious awakening
Yours in the Master's Service,
R. E. NEWTON.
Sheriff Walker and Deputies Destroy
350 Gallons of Beer, But No
Saturday afternoon Sheriff O. v.
Walker, assisted by Jim Adams,
"Duck" Smith and I. E. Hamby lo
cated a still about three miles from
Creston on what is known as the
Taylor farm, half a mile from the
home of Matthew Ferriss. The still
had been removed but they destroyed
about 350 gallons of beer, several
barrels and other minor equipment.
Indication were that the still had
been in operation a short time before,
but it seemed they must have sus
picioned that danger threatened them
and they took the still away. No one
was found at the still sight and no
arrests were made.

Citizena and Companies Building
Milea Road from Clifty to
M. to B. Highway.
Friday M. L. Taylor and son.Charles
drove to town in their car and took
Highway Commissioners J. W. Dor
ton, J. Q. Burnett and S. C. Bishop
to Clifty to give them a look at the
eight mijes of splendid road the citi
zens of "Clifty, the Bon Air Coal Co.,
and the Ransom-Benedict .Lumber
Company are now constructing from
Clifty to a junction with the Memphis
to-Bristol Highway at a point a short
distance west of Pleasant Hill.
At this time there remains about a
mile and a half of road to be built.
A small force of men is steadily
pushing it to completion which they
hope to attain before the bad weather
of winter forces work to stop. The
one great and remarkable feature of
this work is the splendid public spirit
The Only Merchant-
who does not need to
advertise is the one whose wife
is a WIDOW,
that rs so strong among the people
of Clifty. There are several miners
there who are donating $8.00 . per
month from their wages to the com
pletion of this road. Several other
persons have given $50 and $100 each.
The Bon Air Company has given $600
toward the work and the Ransom
Benedict company has contributed
about the same amount. There is no
relaxing of the spirit of public enter
prise and there is no doubt the work
will be completed. The building of
this road is of great value to this
county for fully seven miles of it is
in this county. - The construction is of
the kind trat insures permanency.
There is a fairly good road run
ning from Crossville to Clifty and
passing through the Taylors Chapel
neighborhood, making the distance
from Clifty to Crossville 16 miles.
Many cars come from Clifty to Cross
ville and more Clifty dollars are drop
ped with our merchants, restaurants
and hotels than most of us are aware
Scarcely a day passes that one or
more cars do not bring Clifty people
to Crossville. The distance from Clif
ty to Sparta the trading point 01
many Clifty people is 23 miles and
in that case the entire distance is
made more easily and comfortable by
railroad than by car. If the road
bctv. ei'ii . Crossville and Clifty was
favored with a few hundred dollars
of work in the worst places, it would
iDe a ffrcat inducement for Clifty peo-
pie to come to Crossville to trade and
our merchants would be much bene
When it is remembered that with
in a radius of three miles around
Clifty there are nearly 2,000 people
living, there are two companies, which
jointly pay to the laboring people of
that section fully $75,000 a month, it
will be seen that with reasonable road
between the two points much travel
would result and. far more business
would come to Crossvelle than is now
the case. 1
At the Ransom-Benedict Saw mill
they are now cutting from 25,000 to,
35,000 feet of lumber a day, and tre
estimate they have enough lumber in
sight to keep the mill going for ten
years. A railroad has been extended
to within five miles of the state prop
ertyHerbert Domain that carries
the logs to the mill. Prospecting has
shown that the hills are full of an
excellent quality of coal comprizing
8,000 acres. This coal is to be mined
as the lumber conditions reach tnt
point where it can be done.
The Rauson-Benedict Company has
built a town that houses about 350
people, have built a splendid school
building and have employed a teacher,
so that the children of Granny Town,
as it is called, have' as good advant
ages for schooling as are found in
most towns of 800 to 1,000 population.
COST OF ROAD
Will Addres the People of Crossville
In. the Baptiat Church Monday
Evening, November 14
Ex-Governor M. R. Patterson, who
has been speaking all over the United
States for the past several years un
der the direction of the Anti-Saloon
League, will address the people of
Crossville at the Baptist church, Mon
day night, November 14, on the sub
ject: "America Looking Forward.".
There is no more forceful, eloquent
or versatile speaker in the state, or
possibly in the United States, than
Mr. Patterson and he is sure to bring
such a message to our people as will
enthuse and thrill all with the zeal
for better and higher things. No
citizen of this county, who admires
eloquence and power of logic can af
ford to miss hearing this distinguish
"The roadtliiyafe building is weil
drained and promisese to prove of a
very stable character. It is costing
$125 to$i50 for each 1,000 feet, running
measure. The work is being done by
experienced men at what is regarded
as a very low cost.
The county has built a splendid
steel bridge over Caney Fork on the
Crossville-Clifty road but the road
in some places is badly in need of
work to render travel with cars reason
ably easy. Citizens of Clifty and vi
cinity are very . desirous . that this
much-needed work be done. From
the spirit shown by the people of that
section it is certain they will show a
very generous atitude toward the up
keep of the road once it is put in good
passable shape. Our county and
Crossville especially could do no
wiser thing than to lend all possible
aid to the proper building of this
road for it would mean much busi
ness transacted between Clifty and
Crossville citizens. The Clifty people
are very much interested in having it
completed to the end that they may
make Crossville a trading point to a
much greater degree than at present

You can always tell when a man is
growing old by the things he talks
about. A young man talks about the

and an old man about the past. Put
me in the class in which you think
I belong from the following. ,
I love to think of the long ago,
when youth was a real joy and "".
was worth the living. When 6 years
of age, I spent my first day in school
