I jr ETTING in front, and keeping tnerer that's the way Marathon races are won. It?s the way
Vi- anything else in this world is won; and no man who wants to win can afford to neglect any
thing, great or small, which may contribute to his being in front. '
You want to win success in your undertakings, whatever they may be; and one of the things
which every man needs and ought to be sure of, is good clothes; they help your appearance, add
to your effectiveness, make you feel more successful; and there's a lot in the way a man feels who
is trying to win.
Hart Schaffner & Marx
are in front of all the clothes-makers of the world; they got there by making clothes right; by correct
style, by perfect and thorough tailoring, by using none' but all-wool fabrics when so many makers
think part cotton is good enough for you.
We sell these clothes because we believe they're that kind of clothes; because we want to keep
in front. They're the sort of clothes that are a benefit and a profit to everybody concerned; to you
who wear them most of all.
All other men's wear, hats, shirts, furnishings; the small accessories of dress. Ready here.
If you're in front and want to stay there; or if you want to get there, here are the clothes for it.
This store is the home of Hart Schaffner & Marx Clothes.

London is making the Marathon an
almost national form of sport.

Increase of Capacity.
The J. F. & S. L. Dodds Co.,

increase of business, to enlarge
the capacity of their cotton gin at
this place. The 4 battery and one

by a 7 battery and 2 press equip

Gasoline at the Courier Office.
Powell a Benedict.
Miss Nora T. Gillaspy, of Colurri
bla, Mo., and Thos. R. Powell,
formerly of this city nnd a son of
Mrs. M. E Powell, were married
Monday afternoon, March 21st, at
Clayton, Mo., a small berg near St.
Although the young people had
been engaged for some time and
their marriage was expected, they
wished to surprise their friends and
keep the cermoney secret a few
days. This desire led to the unusual
scene of their nuptials.
After getting their license at the
court house they casually strolled
across the street to the drug store,
where Miss Evelyn Callen Is the
prescription clerk. Miss Callen
wears a "Kappa Alpha" fraternity
pin slven hr-r by a young man rt
Ferguson. Powell was a member of
this fraternity at Missiourl State
University, where he and Miss
A question disclosed that the own
er of the little trinket was also a M.
S. U. man. Miss Callen was at once
enlisted in the plan for secrecy.
She telephoned Rev. Walter Lane-
try and he performed the cermoney
in the proprietor's office. Mr and
Mrs. Powell then returned to St.
Mr. Powell was reared in this city
and is well known to most of our
readers. He is a bright, hustling
young fellow and has many friends
who will join us in extending con
gratulations. He has been attend
ing the University at Columbia
preparatory to a journalistic career,
and we know he will "make good"
in this capacity, having been identi
fied with this paper in 1906.
The bride is a lovable young lady,
accomplished and will make a splen
did helpmeet. The Courier editors
knew this young lady long before
Mr. Powell ever made ber acquaint
ance, and can say that she is one of
Missouri's best. She is a daughter
of J. H. Gillaspy, a wealthy farmer
of near Columbia.
We have .not learned where they
will reside but, Tom, old boy,
here's a hearty welcome to your
"old Kentucky home."
Night Rider Cases.
The Supreme Court for the Wes
tern district of Tennessee will meet
in Jackson about the second week in
April and will likely pass on the
sentences of the eight condemned
men convicted of being members of
the band of night riders who mur
dered Captain Rankin at Walnut
Log in October.
It is not known definitelvwhen the
Obion County docket will be taken
up bythe higher tribunal but on ac
count of the gravity of the sentences
it ,is expected that the night rider
cases wlll'be advanced and passed
on at an early date.
The bill introduced in the legisla
ture recently that all legal executions
take place at the State penitentiary
has not yet passed both houses and
also provides that all sentenced be
fore the passage of the bill shall be
executed at the county seat, which
in the event the verdict of the lower
court is affirmed will cause the ex
ecutions to take place at Union City.
The winter now shall end, the
heavens smile on Spring. The bull
frog shall woo in the gloaming, and
the robin merrily sing. The calf
shall cavort in the pastures with
bliss in the pitch of his tail, the
lark awakes in the morning and
sings from the tip of a rail, the wind
shall disport with the washing
and pop the tails of shirts, and the
modest maid go walking with shot in
the hem of her skirts. The fateful
ISth having happened, and Spring
having burnished the dove, accord
ing to all traditions the season shall
open for love. The soul-mate shall
sigh for Its fellow, the hard hit af
finity groan, the common unclassi
fied lover shall bawl to call some
one his own ; the young folks shall
coo in the parlor, and the cook and
the coon at the rear, the telephone
wire shall be busy with dialogues
sweetened with dear. The weather,
however, shall physic impurities out
of the blood, the sun shall resume
our road work and case-harden the
mud ; the farmer will put In his gar
den with seed Ollle James has sent,
the thrush will sit In the tree-top
and announce that winter has went ;
the road-beds shall harden and stif
fen, decreasing the number of
wrecks, and Fulton county people
may travel without telescoping their
