When Mr. King was seen on the campus, after returning, he received quite an ovation. He is a general favorite at Turner.

So he took down his squirrel ride (he was an expert marks man) an tramped off to Shiloh where : he saw his first service a rcout in the Union army under General McClell- and. He acted as guide for General Logan in Tennessee and Mississippi.: Loosing his hea.th he came to Spring field, 111., where he met and married Mrs. Mary E. Gaines, who was a fit-! ting companion in his successful ef- j forts to establish a home and to rear an honorable family. j With keen foresight he chose farm ing for his life-work.

The day wa3 never too cold for him to work, up long before daylight, he1 would ofteh walk four miles to the woods, wait for daylight to come, work , until noon, eat his frozen lunch, chop a hole in the river ice to drink, and when night would come, three to three and one-half cords of wood would be the result of hia day's labor.

The shoplifter, in a majority ot cases, does not have to steal, and the politest way it can be explained among the well-to-do is that the shop lifter is "kleptomaniac." This ex planation, however, does not lessen the. loss to the merchant. At this busy season the Nashville merchants have employed many per sons who do nothing else except watch the counters and the customer who is kno'la as a "lifter." One would be surprised to know how many persons in Nashville are on the "sus pected" list and there are quite a few. The merchants know them and they never go into a store to make a purchase that they are not followed from the time they enter till they de part, for in no way can the merchant be sure that he Is not being Imposed upon and then sometimes they "get away with it." j The policy of thy nepers here has been to dismi! j shoplifter with as little trouble a ossible, but at the same time to fK "ess upon her mind for she is usually a woman 'that a second offense will mean im- iiiuu me Hciiooi nouse reauy to hide his book In his shirt.
