The first man who goes out of this store wearing one of our new suits or one of our fine overcoats for Fall is sure to get a lot of pleasure in it; he will look better dressed than the men around him; he will have a distinction in style and fashion that is quite unusual. Hart Schaffner & Marx have produced for us some of the most stunning creations we have ever had to offer our trade. The new greys and blues in suit fabrics are exceptionally attractive; many patterns in the weave from plain colors in worsted and serges, to checks, plaids, stripes, self-stripes and other pattern weaves. Overcoats and raincoats, too, are in many pleasing colors and weaves. You'd better be one of the first in them. Suits 20 to $25 Overcoats 16.50 to $25 This store is the home of Hart Schaffner & Marx clothes Smith Sl Amber g a special torin of court for 3 mouths. Ho had continued court at Dresden, nt Camden, at Tlptoti villo and at Uyorsburg. Ho had held tho regular terms of thu Oblou county circuit court in Juuunry, in Muy nnd was now eugnged in holding thu Septem ber term. When ho did get to work ut his DroBdeu, Tlptonvllle, Camden und Dyorslmrg courts ho and (lonunil Caldwell hnd to work almost day and night to the grent Injury to their respective healths in order to catch up with the work. Ah to the mutter of ball or bond with which ku much fault had been found ho said probably two-thirds of tho nlght-rldem wera out on bond whllo 24 or 25 are In jail at dlffereut points. He Bald there were but two ways In which one charged with n capital crime could get out on bond and none of these wuys had been complied with. He sulil that duty was to hliu the Hweetest word In the Kug Ibli language, that It tho folks In Ob Ion county could uleep these hot nights with windows up, doors lijnr or out In tho yard or up In the hay loft or any where else that fancy nilgh choose or whim dictate nnd all in sweet nnd uiipurturbed'sureulty, part at least of tho oredltt ought to go to him and (louorul Caldwell. He told of (lenerul Lee's duvotlon to duty when ho, though n chjld of West l'olnt, wont back on thu federal gov ernment and clung to Virginia, even I though Ooiienil Scott promised to make him eoiniuaiider-In-chluf of tho federal armies. Even so did duty ap peal to hliu. He nsHiired his hearers that ho would never basely desert his post, the elevation of tho uiujebty and dig nity of the law. Ills aim was to lim it said of lilm what Napoleon hud a comrade to call out after of a cer tain humble private who hud been ever true nnd faithful to bin duties "Dead, but dead on the fluid of hon or." Ho said he hnd rathor carry Ob lou county than to carry any other two counties In tho Judicial circuit, that It the citizens of Oblou county voted for him they voted peuce, law and order, that U they did not sus tain lilm, It would go abroad all over tho land that Obion county had voted to suHtulu murder, lawlessness, an archy nnd the dissolution of Justice and of tho courts. Tho Judge clos ed with a burst of eloquence fa which ho urged his hearers to do as old llowlo did down ut tho Alamo where Santa Ana and his bloody and ferocious troops encompassed like u. cloud the doom und beleugueied fort ress. The officer In command drew u Hue und asked everybody that was willing to die for Texas und, for liber ty, to step across tho line. Thu wounded llowlo could not step across, but ho cried with u loud voice "My God, men, pick tuu up uud carry mo; aeaross." Troy NewB-llauner.
