MARION, liny Building; Burned—Negro Cuts a Young White Man. Marinn, Ort. 28.—(Special Correspond ence.)—On Saturday night a small frame building filled with hay, belonging to -*v. . Crawford & Wallace, was destroyed by lire. Adjoining It was the lumber yard of W. F. Moore, and some damage was done to the lumber before the lire was extinguished A young man by the name of Tucker was cut by a negro.named Oates Lee ir. n fracas Saturday night. The last of the cotton crop Is being gathered, but very little Is being mar keted now on account of the drop In price. Mr. 15. H Tubbs and Miss Nora Daugh drill. both of th's place, will he married in the Baptist church on the afternoon of the 30th. Rev. R. O. Patrick, the new pastor of the Baptist church here, will preach his iirst sermon November 10. The musical recital by the teachers of thi Judson on Friday night was greatly enjoyed by a large audience. Miss Stake ly, the vocal teacher, made her llrst ap pearance before the Marion people, and her voice was declared to he the best ever heard in this place. She was re peatedly encored and created the greatest enthusiasm. GUNTERSVILLE, United States Commissioner — New Court House—Government Operations on the River Suspended. Gunterssville, Oct. 29.—(Special.)—The walls of the new court house at this place arc now' completed to the second story and the work goes steadily forward. Since circuit court adjourned business has been rather dull in this section of country. The late fall in cotton has checked In a measure the marketing of the crop for the present, and corn is so low that very few persons will sell at pre vailing prices. Mr. Samuel Fow'tgr of St. Clair county has been appointed United States com missioner at this place. We have needed a commissioner for many years, but it has been a hard matter to get one ap pointed here. Persons arrested for viola tions of the federal statutes have been carried to Huntsville and Attalla, some distance away, at an expense to the gov ernment and to Individuals, and when put under bail they usually had to lie in jail several days or weeks before they could make bond. Owing to the fact that it has become so cold that hands cannot be procured to work In the water, the government has about suspended operations on the river near this place. The waters are very lov.» and It Is certainly a good time to Im prove Beard’s reef and Gunter's reef, but the probabilities are the work will go over for another year, or maybe indefinitely. On Sunday, the 20th of this month, near the public road leading from Oleander to Arab, In this county, Jeff Edmondson shot and mortally wounded Ben Hlpps. Edmondson is Hlpps’ nephew by mar riage. They lived In the same settlement. Several years ago they ran a government still together and had some falling out. In the settlement of the distillery bus iness Hlpps became Indebted to Edmond son for some hogs and corn. On the day of the shooting Edmondson met with Hlpps and asked him for the money. The latter claimed a setoff for damages. Ed mondson threatened to sue him. Hipps became angry, drew a pistol and shot at Edmondson twice. Edmondson returned the fire. The deceased was drinking and Edmondson seems to have tried to avoid the difficulty. Edmondson was liberated on ball. John Baxter says that the argument advanced by some persons that a de creasing volume of sound currency is beneficial to the producing and debtor class of people Is just about as apt, log ical and appropriate as the devil quoting scripture. The best fall medicine is Hood's Sarsa parilla because It purifies, enriches and vitalizes the blood. MAIDS IN VERSE. So many suitors has she had. She's gotten printed blanks, And forwards to each lover sad, The words. “Declined with thanks.’’ —Washington Star. The melancholy days have come, The leaves are falling: s^re; And ladies must their wraps put on, The ones they wore last year— Poor things! — Buffalo News. She wore a locket around her neck— A locket of shining gold— The shape of a heart and large enough A picture petite to hold. I opened the locket to ascertain Who was her particular pet, —Spare Moments. The trees will lose their verdure soon, The breeze will blow a gale; Our gentle friend, the mystic moon ’Neath clouds of gray must pale. So, one by one our summer friends All changed will meet our view. And e’en tne letters that she writes Seem sadly different, too. —Washington Star. They’ve left the beach and mountain all And other summer stations, And now* thy To ready for the fall Engagements and flirtations. They leave the mountains and the shore— To disappear? Oh, never! The girls ore with us ua before And just as sweet os ever. —Boston Courier. KICKING OVER A STRAW. There has been some kicking of late re lating to the distribution of mail at this postoflice. The State Herald is aware that Birmingham has beyond doubt the best postoffice officials in the south, and If anything has occurred authorizing a kick the parties need only to make their grievances known to have them rectified. The charge Is that mail received in the altc-rnoon Is not opened in many in stances until 11 o'clock next day. In this there must be some error, as the State Herald receives letters on almost every mall and we have experienced no trouble. Possibly you are kicking over a straw. |K HOUSEKEEPERS who are delicate, Tuu down, or ^ overworked, and j those who suf r fcr from back | ache, headache, dragging-down sensations in the abdomen, and many other symptoms of de rangement of the female functions can hud renewed strength and health by taking Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription.
