"Life for man and Death for con

score of other complaints are nothing

and simple, yet how many neonle ob

lhis weather has been unusually
cold for Spring, it has caused much
sickness and many deaths. Consump
uon has been in the lead in claiming
victims. One sad feature of this ill
ness is when a sick man gets down to
where the end of his finances is plain-
ly in sight and his illness will not per
mit of his earning more the situation
becomes desperate; then a man usual
ly goes down, for a consumptive must
ever be cheerful. But, tell me, who
could be cheerful with an empty pock
et and heavy responsibilities? Be
cause you are of a consumptive family
is no longer any good reason why
you should look for the day of doom
to arrive when that terrible disease
shall have developed. Keep the stom
ach in good order and you will live
longer; the stomach is the storeroom
of the body and when the storeroom
is affected everything goes wrong.
When coughing be careful not to swal
low any of the sputum. As the stom
ach becomes infected with the germ
of consumption the chances are one
for and nine against recovery.
A very rich person once offered
31,000,000 to the man who would dis
cover a remedy that would renew his
stomach and put it in first-class work
ing order again. So we can readily
see that this man knew the value of
a good stomach. Put only plain, sub
stantial food and a plenty of pure
water into the stomach.

Washington, June U. Col. Scott,
Commandant of the Military Acad
emy, has made the conduct of the Ne
gro troops stationed at that place the
subject of a special report to the War
Department, which is of interest in
view of published rumors to the ef
fect that the residents of Highland
J? alls have become apprehensive of
disorderly conduct on their part. As
a matter of fact, Col. Scott says,
the conduct of the Negro troops
since they have been at West
Point has been admirable and flaw
less; indeed, he says it has been
much better than that of the white
regulars who preceded them at the
post. There are very few of these
Negro troops at the militi.'y academy,
most of them, being short term imn
connected with the regiments that
have been sent to the Philiinnnes,
who were kept at home to avoid the
expense of transportation to trio
Philippines and thi-ir return after a
few weeks' active service, in order to
be discharged.

On last Wednesday evening, June 0,
the sad announcement which caused
widespread regret in Clarksville, and
which came as a great shock to rela
tives and friends, was the death of
Miss Louella Hutchings. While she
was not a robust woman, she led an
active life, and the illness which
caused her demise was of short dura
tion. She spent several weeks in El
Paso, Texas, with the expectation of a
partial recovery. The funeral serv
ices were held last Friday afternoon
at Ehenezer A. M. E. Church, with a
large number of friends gathered to
pay their last respects. Revs. Lore
and Gardner delivered the eulogies
The interment was at Mt. Olivet cem
etary. 1 wenty-three men were entered,
passed and raised to the Master Mas
on's degree last Saturday night by
Warheld Lodge F. and A. M. with Dr
C. A. Kelly as Master officiating.

lie was an unsophisticated youth,
having given up his residence in the
rural districts, and being enticed by
the glare of -the city life, was led to
question the mode-of locomotion in its
various phases. On beholding an el
ectric car of ancient nattern. he
mounted it without the least apprehen
sion, and presently was speeding on
ward to its destination, thinking only
of a position offered him as office boy
by one of the prominent physicians.
The transition from farm hand, carry
ing with it the many laborous duties,
to that of office boy with its ease and
comfort with the debating thought in
his innocent mind during the short
ride, when lo, the place desired was
seen, lie arose with an agitated air
and beat a hasty retreat to the door.
Not being . accustomed with the city
mode of dismounting, he found him
self in a preceptitous heap, with sev
eral valleys and mountains on his
head, from which flowed many a tiny
sti earn. In a short while he will sure
ly learn a few of the city's ways.
