Two Sundays ae:o a gentleman driv ing his family, barely escaped being assaulted by about a dozen of these bovs whose ages range from ten to fifteen vears. It appears that the ranr had secreted themselves in portions of the capitol yard and was laying for a colored boy who they paw coming over the hiV. The en tire number being not less than twelve, started after the boy, throw ing rocks from the hill but not com ing Into the street, but the Negro boy refuped to retreat, holding his around, when a regular battle of rocks ensued. It was impossible for the gentleman and his family to pass, so swift and thick were the rocks lying. He stated to a Globe re- ! porter that he drove a block down the street and reported the matter to a policeman of that beat, whom hej paid was coming up Cedar street walking leisurely eating peanuts. He stated that the officer replied that he knew the boys were there, but that the officer made no attempt, or no effort to apprehend these urchins or to protect the lifo and property of the people as they passed. It has oftpn been reported in this neighbor hood of the conduct- of these boys who are marauders right under the hndow of the state capitol. Some a-e claiming that they never cross Fitrhth avenue, going west but that they confine their operation between the square, and. Eighth avenue, using principally the"' capitol grounds as their rendezvous, making no attempt to conceal their act8, even from the police force.

A., of Meharry Medical College on Sunday afternoon' 3.0th. inst., that be ing the fast meeting of the session, and it having been announced that rr C. V. Roman, reputed for his elo- ! auence and words of wisdom, would V- address the association on that occa sion, . ' The meeting began at 3:30 p. m. with the singing of a hymn, which was followed by the reading of a passnero from St. John's gospel, by Mr: W. IT. Clark, o' the Senior Medi cal class, and vice-president of the association. After this, the audience was favor ed with an instrumental duet by Messrs. Looney and Scott,, and then there followed the formal introduction of the speaker, by Mr. J. S. Scott, of the Senior class. Dr. Roman took as his subject: "Is Re'igion a Necessity for Man?" It wou'd be difficult to render by com ment an adequately perspicuous ex position of that most philosophical and highly . edifying lecture, so very profound and far-reaching were the thoughts embodied and the truths expressed. He declared his lecture to be the same that he delivered twelve years ago, when called upon to defend the Christian religion, and the Y. M. C. A. having just completed its year's work, he deemed it opportune to illustrate that its labors were not in vain.' but that the God of its adora tion is the Creator of all the universe, and the one omniscient and omnipres ent Being. "Religion," he said, "embodies duty for the present, hope for the future, love for humanity, and reverence to God." --. It next devolved on Dr. Roman to present diplomas to those members of the senior clao who have completed the course of Bible Studv. held under the auspices of the Y.' M. C. A. and after he had made a few remarks of commendation and admonition, the fol'owing persons were pranted their diploma: , Messrs. E. A. Balner, 'J.' S. Seott, -T. T. .Breedlove. B A. Everett, T. M. Whittfoo. A. IT. McRuffln, J. F. Smith and S. M. D nzy. Closing remark" wpre then made by Dr. G. W. Hubbard, Dean of Meharrv, in which he commended th associa tion for its successful work during the year. - The rendering of a selection by the senior class nuartPtte. vnd the Pro nouncing of th benediction by Bishop E.

Above is the sketch of Mi3S Mayme Allison, who died March 2Sth, at 4:20 a. m. She was born September 28, 1S90. She was a graduate of Pearl High School, class of 190G. She was a member of corps of, Davidson County teachers; was principal teach er of Mt. Nebo scaool. Una, Tenn., at the time of her death. She had been, teaching said school for four or five years. She closed her school last June for vacation, came home and was taken W on the 10th of June, and continued ill until her death. Mayme was loved by all who knew her. She a'ways had a smiling face. The pupils of her school ''oved her. She never gained strength enough to venture out again.' During her long illness she was patient and bore her sufferings with resignation. She struggled to not show to her dear mother how dreadful her pains were in order that her motlnr would not be worried. She often tried to help herse'f when it was possible, rather than call on her mother. She told her mother and father often that the T ord wanted her in his building, and that she was tired. Mayme leaves to. mourn her loss a mother, father, three sisters and three brothers, and a host of relatives and friends. The funeral was held at the Holy Trinity Church, of which she had been a member since childhood. A beautiful sermon was preached by Father A. G. Coombs, rector, and a beautiful solo was rendered by Miss Madeline Carter, entitled "Face to Face." The following young men serv ed as pallbearers: Anthony Porter, Benj. Ogleton, Arthur Brown, Floyd Wade, Rufus Duncan and Dennis Er win. The flowers bearers were: Misses Lou Ella Mayberry, Adelaide Towson, Geneva Mabry, Annie Hen derson and Marlea Coombs. The re mains were placed in Greenwood Cemetery. divisions and discussions on account of the money question, and the people were ft IV. suffering from the Cleve land panic. Besides, the issues of the State were bitter. Two- years before Hon. H. Clay Evans of Chattanooga was elected Governor by the Repub licans on the face of the returns. Hon. Peter Turney, the Democratic nominee, contested the e'ection, and was declared Governor by a Demo cratic Legislature. These were some of the things that confronted the Democracy of Tennes--ee when Gov. Taylor was called on the third time to save the State. He was then in 'the zenith of his public rareer as a lecturer, and consequently raid "no" to the urgent ca'I. So anxious were they that the Demo cratic leaders sent a committee to him. They found him in Wisconsin. He refused. Then another went to 'ee him in Michigan, and still an other sought him in the far North west. He held out stubbornly that he would nevr again enter politics. Things in Tennessee became so criti cal that still another committee rought him out in Texas. "Come to Tennessee, Gov. Taylor," ihey urged upon him. "or the Demo cratic party is gone." With this plea they assured him of Fuccess and prom ised to send him to the United States Senate at the conclusion of his term as . Chief Executive and keep him 'here for life. He thought a vvhi'e and then re plied: "Gentlemen, my first duty Is to my party. When . she cars, . I must go." ' The .result is a matter of history. The campaign - was second only to the "War of the Roses" twelve years previous. By far the biggest vote that has ever been polled in Tennes see was .that of the fall of 189G. The resu't was in doubt for days, the of ficial vote showing: Taylor, 10(5,228; Geo. N. Tinman, Republican, 149,374. "The Fiddle and the Bow" had won again, . .. ther's old farm on the banks of the river in the beautiful land of my na tiro Tennessee mountains. I strayed ence more through the pathless woods with my rifle on my shoulder. I sat on the old familiar logs amid the falls ing leaves of autumn ar.d heard th-' riuirrels bark and shake the branches! as they Jumped from tree to tree. I heard the p'aintive song of the whip Porwill and the drumming of a pheas-' ant and the hoot of a wise old owl "way over in Sleepy Hollow. I heard the tinkung of bells on the distant hills sweetly mlnzlins' with tha h-,r.w chorus of the songbirds in their even-j 'ng serenade. Every 'iving creati -mea io dp chanting a hymn of He Was Pooular As Governor. Centennial nraise to its God, Just as they used to ' orq ago; and as I sat there on that eld familiar spot and listened tn th uu uaimuu). i was rapt, into a reverie. A vision of the happy past opened before me. I thought I was a boy again and played around the cab ins of the old plantation and heard the old-time' darkies laugh and sing and play the fiddle as they used to long ago. "Shouldering my rifle, I wended my way back to take one more !ook at the o"d homestead on the bank of the river. Silence was there. The voices of the happy long ago" were hushed forever. The . old-time darkies were ?'eeping on the hill close by the cpot where my father sleeps. The moss covered bucket was gone from th well. The old. home where I was born' wns silent and deserted. As I peered through the dusty window pane and 'ooked upon , the deso'ate hearthstone 'hat oncel gl'owed with the light of love and happiness, I thought my mother came back across the flood of vanished years and sang there again the sweet, old songs she used to smg In the happy long ago." j As a boy of the mountain first, then a young man of "the fiddle and the bow," lawyer, Congressman, Governor,' editor, author, lecturer, United Stated Senator. Robert Love Taylor was Tennessee's most popular citizen for thirty years. i SENATOR ROBERT L. TAVLOR NO MORE. (Continued from Page 1) "Here under this soapstone slab Lies one who had the gif of gab. He was a Michigander ' From away up yander." Dignified debate and humorous Jokes were turned loose all over the district, and in the end the Jokes won, for the young Knight . from Happy Val'ey was elected to Congress by an overwhelming majority. War of the Roses Unique In Politics. Senator Taylor's second appearance in the political arena was in 1884 as Presidential elector from the State-at-large. Two years later he made his famous canvass for Governor of Tennessee against his brother Alf and won. This canvass between the Taylor brothers was the most re markable race in the history of Ten nessee. It has gone down in history as "The War of the Roses." Bob and hi followers wearing the white and Alf and his friends wearing the red rose. Bob was the Democratic nomi nee. Alf was the choice of the Re publicans. Thev covered the state in Joint debate Alf serious and weigh ing the problems of the day. Bob hum orous and singine from the stump, accompanied bv "his fiddle and his bow." Oftentimes in the small towns there was o'nlv one hotel and Entering on his third term, Gov- Taylor, commenced two years;, of trouble and worry as Centennial Gov ernor. For weeks and weeks he was daiy called on to welcome' visitors itn the great fair from the 4 Sunny South or the Far Northwest. - - Be sides, there was a human stream pour ivig into the executive chamber to shake hands with "Our Bob." Prince and peasant came and received a re ception as if of equal rank. His soft heart made his pardon record long, and for this he was subjected to bitter criticism. One cold spring day a woman, followed by five chil dren, walked all the way from the mountains of East Tennessee to ask the "kind-hearted Governor" to give' her her "man,'' who was in the penitentiary. She needed her "man," she said, and Yio truer statement could have been uttered, for it was a fact, as Governor Taylor often related; her c'othes were ragged and torn, her shoes were worn and her children were barefooted. She got her "man" and afso a brand-new ten-dollar note from the "kind-hearted Governor's" own pocket to buy the children shoes. On another occasion an old-time s'ave woman came to get "her ole man." "Marsa Robert, I wants my ole man," she said to the Governor, as she courtesied and bowed with typical Southern politenesr "What did your 'ole man' do to get in prison, Auntie?" she was asked. "Dey say he stole some meat, Marsa. Robert, but I has my doubts about dat, and besides. Marsa Robert, de meat's a1! out, and I needs my ole man." She got her "ole man" and r air road fare back home. ! Not bested by the worries of being Centennial Governor, Bob Taylor in stituted many new reforms during his third t?rm. Among one of these was the abolishment of whipping convict women. This humanitarian r,tP made him manv friends. . Then, under his administration, a home for ind'eent and disabled Confederate soldiers was established on "The Hor mttaere" property, the historic home of "Cd Hickory." Retirimr the third time from the o-nvprnorph'p, Gov. Tavlor who. hropp'h h's genial disposition with his constitupnv, had bepn hprnlded "Th Annstl" nf Snnsh'ne," went "n he Ipfture p'atform arra'n, and r rnained thero until 19A(V when hp was MEETING AT FIRESIDE SCHOOL?

Both of these divines were en route South from Denver, where Dr. Ford has been on a visit to his family, and where Dr. Williams has been recently called to the pastorate of one of the best churches in the West. Their stopover here, from what information could be picked up from Baptist circles, was that both might get a line on the Sunday-School Congress plans, as the Rev. Dr. Ford is to conduct the Bible Conference. While here they were being entertaind by Drs. Clark and Boyd. They left on the Dixie Flyer for Atlanta and Jack sonville. . . . CARD OF THANKS.

At that time there were no special issues that divided the party, but there was strong opposition to his renominatlon. the convention being in session for a week. His Republican opponent was Hon. Sam W. Hawkins, and their Joint canvass was but litt'e less thrilling than that with his brother. Generous of heart and liberal with hi? means. Gov. Tav'or retired from the Executive chamber In 1S91 with out, money. Then his talents ns a musician nnd a lecturer served him well. Having previously prepared a humorous lectue that had popularized h'm In Tennessee, he commenced his career as a public lecturer. Individ ually and by .contract he lectured all over 'the Fnlted States, enjoying un usual success. "The Fiddle and the Bow" was easily the most popular 'eotur?, and he stated only recently that he had made $250.00.0 out of this lecture. He was beyond all ques tion one of tne most popular platform entertainers this country ever saw.

From the time he was a barefoot boy on the banks of the Watauga.- aD the wav down the line, his lifo was known and admired bv the citizens of his nrtlve State. His numerous names. "The Knight of Happv Valley." "Our Boh." and "The Apostle of Sunshine." are attestations of this fact. Senator Taylor never forgot Huppy Valley.

They both spoke of this nob'e woman as beine a loving wife,' a true mother, a devoted daugh ter and n kind sister. Mrs. Brown was a faithful Christian. She loved her church dearly. She was the chairman, of the Daughters of the Conference Board for eight years. She was always willing and ready to do anything to help her church. She looked upon no task as being too rrreatiJor her to do to help her church. The board has lost a true leader. A beautiful floral-design was presented by the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grades and the faculty of Columbia public school, of which her daughter, Miss Beatrice Gorden. Is a teacher.
