Of Well Made Clothes!! An&;
Why shouldn't you men want a perfedt fitting
Suit for Easter? Why shouldn't you look as well
as possible? In other words, why shouldn't you
let us make you a suit? It can't be a matter of
1 9 1 .
pnee, because our prices are lower in proportion
to the values offered than any other tailors. In ad
dition to this, our clothes represent the last word in
the art of perfect tailoring, and our stock of hand
some fabrics is the largest ever shown in the city.
Come today and look around.

Big Revival Closed.
The big revival, which has been
in progress for the past three weeks
at the First Methodist church, was
brought to a close Sunday night.
Rev. Klein, the evangelist in
charge of the services, worked hard,
and was assisted by equally zealous
workers Revs. Turklngton, ierry,
Waters, Metheny and laymen and
personal workers. Through their
untiring efforts, the meeting was a
great blessing to this city a great
worV was accomplished. The num.
ber of conversions is approximately
150 and about half as many re-consecrations.
Rev. Klein has methods peculiar
ly his own in revival work possibly
better than the ordinary way but
unfortunately, bis methods did not
elicit the popular favor which should
have been accorded this worthy
cause. This was anticipated by Rev.
Waters, who admonished his mem
bership in a previous sermon to with
hold any criticism for at least a
week. Still, there was more or less
comment on it. Let this be as it
may, the revival is over and the
town is better for it.
Rev. Klein and Terry left Sunday
night for Shelbyville, Tenn., where
they will hold a meeting, beginning
The St. Louis Republic of Friday
says the Mississippi river commis
sion will hold its spring session
on board the steamer Mississippi,
leaving St. Louis April 8, 1909,atl0
a. m. The commission will make
an inspection trip from St. Louis to
New Orleans and will give public
hearings connected with the improve
ment of the Mississippi river at bt
Louis and at points along the route.
Caving has resumed at Birds Point
and Wednesday 35 feet of the bank
went into the river. The rapid
erosion threatened the depot, and
steps have been taken to move it
within the next few days. Caving
is now not quite so rapid. A new
landing stage will also have to be
excavated. The river is now from
six to eight feet below the top of the
bank and the undercurrent is eating
into the sand strata under the surface.
Mixim's new invention muffling
the sound when a gun Is discharged
is now petfected and the gun of the
future will be noiseless. It is a
simple contrivance that screws on
the end of the Run. barrel and inter
feres in no way with the passage of
the load, but destroys the sound of
the discharge. The apparatus will
be made to fit any weapon from
small rifle to the heaviest artillery

building, on Clinton street, Is crack

Her son, Lee, was bere Sunday,
Meets Horrible Death.
Robert Oscar Caldwell, a promi
nent citizen and a good man of this
city, met with a horrible accident
last Thursday, resulting in his death
About noon, Thursday, Mr. Cald
well went down to the lower factory
of the Mengel Box Co., for the pur
pose of learning when the mill would
start to running again. After spend
ing a few minutes in the engine
room, he started to go into the main
factory building, walking through
what he thought was a small puddle
of water on the floor. This inno
cent looking puddle of water on the
floor was nothing less than a vat ol
scalding water four feet deep, which
had just been drawn from one of the
engine boilers for some purpose,
and Mr. Caldwell walked off Into it
without kiiwJii.g what it was, going
into the scalding liquid up to his
waist. His cries brought Quincy
Taylor, the saw filer, to his 'assist
ance, and Taylor managed to pull
him from the hole of water in which
he was being literally cooked. The
unfortunate man was hurried to his
home, where, when his clothing was
removed, the flesh came off with the
garments. Dr. C. W. Curlin was
called to administer to the sufferer,
but his condition was so precarious
that no hope of his recovery was en
tertained. He suffered untold agony,
and was only relieved when death
came at 7 :40 Monday night.
Mr. Caldwell was born in Withe
county, Va., in 1848. In 1871 he
came to Fulton county, and in 1899
he moved to this city, residing here
since that date. He was united in
marriage with Miss Alice Barksdale
in 1871, and to whom were born six
children, five of them now living
William Caldwell and four daugh
ters, Mrs. Annice Flynn, Misses
Pauline, Rena, and Lilian all of
whom reside in Hickman. Mrs.
Caldwell also survives her husband.
By trade deceased was a carpen
ter, but ill health forced him to re
tire from this business several years
ago. During the late war, he cast
his lot with the "Lost Cause" and
served with distinction until the end.
For 26 years he has been a member
of the Baptist church, and lived an
upright, Christian life. He was a
big-hearted, manly man, and his de
parture will be deplored by mends
and relatives alike.
Funeral services were held at the
family residence at 2 o'clock Tues
day afternoon, by Rev. Turkington,
after which the remains were laid to
rest in the City Cemetery.
