PUBLISHED WEDNESDAYS ANO SATURDAYS. Wednesday, Nov. 22, 1905. Another Version. Additional details of the killing of Cade Williams by DeWitte Gor don on the lattter’s place near Gillsburg last Saturday night throw an entirely different light upon the unfortunate aflair. It seems now that the two men had been enemies for several years. On the night when the killing occurred, Williams left his home unarmed and went over on Gordon’s place to see a negro. A frolic was in progress at this ne gro’s house when Williams walked in. One of the negro women ob jected to Mr. Williams being there and gave him some impudence, which provoked him to slap her, after which she ran post haste to Gordon’s house and, it is presum ed, gave an exaggerated account of the occurrence in her story to Gordon. In the meantime, Wil liams, accompanied by two ne groes, had .started to the house of another negro. As they were ar riving there, Gordon, stepping from behind a tree, demanded of Williams what he was doing there, cursed him, and raising his gun, tired twice. Williams stag gered off some distance and fell to the ground mortally wounded. Our readers are now in posses sion of both sides ot the story. Which one is true, it is impossi ble to say. Indeed, what the wit nesses testify when the case comes to trial may evolve an altogether different narrative from that now ioiu uy me menus or uoruun aiiu the friends of Williams respec tively.— Magnolia Gazette. Motion to Quash Overruled. A motion was made through J. W. Cassedy, attorney for C. G. Guice and W. E. Mullins, to quash the grand jury on the grounds that the names were ille gally drawn as A. Al. Newman was under bond to appear before the grand jury and had no right to draw a jury that he was to be examined before. Judge Wilkin Ison overruled the motion and pro ceeded with the organization of the grand jury. A gentleman living in the neighborhood of Meadville has received a letter through the mail from Liberty, Miss., which con tains a threat on his life for dis closures be has made concerning a secret organization in the count}’. The letter reads: “Night has no eyes; dead men tell no tales.” The signature consists of a rough ly drawn picture of a coffin and a man hanging to the limb of a tree showing a pistol marked 38, riddling the body with bullets.

Spinners and Planters to Co-Operate. It was recently announced by Harvie Jordan, that there was in contemplation a plan by which the spinners and planters would get together on a basis of “live and let live” on prices of cotton. Col. R.

Al though the plan did not come be DAnrnnf inn tlin nnnrlo have taken root and something tangible will come out of it. It is the only feasible plan to settle tbe cotton question.

This Man Didn’t Bother With Cotton. About 4 years ago, Mr. J. E. Sasser, one of the market men of Brookhaven, bought a 40-acre farm a half mile north of Brook haven on the Ked Star road and settled on it, using a portion of it for a stock pasture and slaughter pen. The old farm was celebrat ed for being poor and worn out and there was‘associated with it a superstition among some who knew it, that the man who tried to live on it very long was destin ed to starve to death. Mr. Sasser received several friendly warn ings from such people of the hard fate that awaited him, but he was not superstitious himself and be lieved in the idea that there is sometimes more m the farmer than there is in the land, and went ahead with his plans accordingly. One time not very long before he got it the farm of 40 acres sold for $160. The land lies beautifully, just rolling enough to drain well and has a good clay sub-soil. Being a good farmer, Mr. Sas ser has been gradually building it up every year since he moved on it, with encouraging results. Hearing Saturday that he had scored a big success this year in raising yam potatoes, a Leader reporter hunted him up for an item on this subject and learned the following interesting facts: He cultivated this year 28 acres of the land—not an acre in cotton. On this he gathered 275 bushels of corn, 800 bushels of fine yam potatoes, 15 tons of the best hay, 130 gallons of cane syrup, with enough ribbon cane left over to seed an acre next year, $>21 worth of beans, which grew in a corn patch from 50 cents worth of seed beans, a lot of sorghum patches for his hogs and raised about 10 head of fine hogs. The only fer tilizer used besides barnyard manure was 2300 pounds of the “New South” brand, manufac tured by the Brookhaven Progres sive Cotton Oil Co., which Mr. Sasser commends very highly as a commercial fertilizer. Mr. Sasser is specially pleased with the results he obtained on his yam potato crop. He had 1 acres in potatoes, which was well fertilized. On 1 acres of this he gathered 800 bushels and left about a half acre for his hogs. 500 bushels of them he has sold at an average price of 60 cents per bushel, and confidently expects to realize from 60 to 75 cents per bushel on the rest. They are the best quality of yams and find a ready sale. At any. rate Mr. Sasser is not expecting to starve or go to the county poor house just yet awhile. No Poison iu Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. From Napier New Zealand Herald: Two years ago the Pharmacy Board of New South Wales, Australia, had an analysis made of all the cough medi cines that were sold in that market. Out of the entire list they found only one that they declared was entirely free from all poisons. This exception was Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy, made by the Chamberlain Medicine Co., Des Moines, Iowa, U. S. A. The ab sence of all narcotics makes this rem edy the safest and best that can be had; and it is with a feeling of security that any mother can give it to her lit tle ones. Chamberlain’s Cough Reme dy is especially recommended by its makers for coughs, colds, croup and whooping cough. This remedy is for sale by C. E. Grafton Drug Co. Attention, Teachers!
