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

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.
Two others here have received no
tices of a similar nature.—Frank

From present indications it
looks like the Baptist church will
have to be made larger to hold the
large crowds that go to hear the
young pastor, Otto Bamber,
preach. The church is crowded
to overflowing at every service.
We are glad to learn that W. B.
Hamilton, who had the misfortune
to get a leg hurt in Memphis, a
short time ago, is improving. He
is a brother of R. L. Hamilton, of
this city, and has many warm
friends here who will be glad to
know lie is recovering.
“The Righteousness of Hell,”
is the title of a little book this
office has just completed for Rev.
Otto Bamber, the grand young
pastor of the Baptist church. It
is one of his best sermons, and is
one of the grandest things we
have ever read. Every maD,
woman and child should read one.
They are on sale at both drug
stores. The price is ten cents per
book. Rev. Bamber will use
every cent he gets for these books
in helping to educate a young
man for the ministry.

It Costs
Nothing
To find out for a certainty
whether or not your heart is
affected. One person in four
has a weak heart; it may be
you. If so, you should know
it now, and save serious con
sequences. If you have short
breath, fluttering, palpitation,
hungry spells, hot flushes; if
you cannot lie on left side; if
you have fainting or smother
ing spells, pain around heart,
in side and arms, your heart is
weak, and perhaps diseased.
Dr. Miles’ Heart Cure will re
lieve you. Try a bottle, and
see how quickly your condition
will improve.
“About a year ago I wrote to the
Miles Medical Co., asking advice, as I
was suffering with heart trouble, and
had been for two years. I had pain
in my heart, back and left side, and
had not been able to diaw a deep
breath for two years. Any little exer
tion would cause palpitation, and X
could not lie on my left side without
suffering. They advised me to try Dr.
Miles Heart Cure and Nervine, which
I did with the result that I am in
better health than I ever was before,
having gained 14 pounds since I com
menced taking it. I took about thir
teen bottles of the two medicines, and
haven’t been bothered with my heart
since.” MRS. 1.ILL1K THOMAS,

the first bottle will benefit. If It fall*

it before a committee of promi

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.
