Nashville, Tenn., April 29. —Ceremon-
ies attending the unveiling of the Sam
Davis monument on Capitol Hill took
place this afternoon. Sam Davis, a Con
federate scout, who. rather than divulge
the source of information which he se
cured, suffered death on the gallows at
the hands of Fedcrals at Pulaski, Tenn.,
Nov. 27, 1803. He was offered his life
if he would tell’the name of the man
from whom he got-his information, but
disdained to accept it.
J Little Elizabeth Davis, his grand
“ nieee, unveiled the monument and was
attended by Mrs. B. O. Winstead of
Nashville, a sister of Sam Davis. After
the rendition of “Dixie” by the band,
Governor Patterson accepted the statue,
formally, in behalf of Tennessee.
In attendance were members of the
Davis family, famous Coleman scouts,
Daughters of the Confederacy and sur
vivors of the First Tennessee Confed
erate veterans.
The statue is the work of Zolnay, a
famous sculptor of St. Louis, and is of
heroic size, representing the body clad
in the butternut gray of the Confed
eracy, standing with folded arms and
gazing with head thrown back into the
distance. It is mounted on a massive
block of solid East Tennessee marble.
The statue stands nine feet in the air

“Cut Ils Pages and It Bleeds'"
THAT’S one man’s striking way of expressing his conviction that Magazine is not
a lifeless, inorganic, spineless thing of mere ink and paper,, made just to sell, but the ,
living, breathing, pulsating embodiment of all that is nearest the heart and most welcome
to the mind of the- American people.

0 @MOPOUT4N contains within its always charming covers, something for every member of the
family. And that something is the best of its kind in every case. The magazine s great
prestige and purchasing power enable it to command the best work of all the most popular
and highly paid writers and artists—not merely now and then, but twelve months in the year.
Its special articles are always unusually vivid and readable studies of the most significant of
contemporary men and movements, prepared by the ablest writers, at great expense and only
after months and often years of expert, first-hand investigation.
Its short fiction is representative of the most popular short-story wizards of the day and runs
the whole scale from grave to gay, with such especial emphasis on the note of humor that
all lovers of a good laugh have come to look upon as peculiarly their magazine;
Its continued stories are invariably by master novelists, full of color, packed with movement
breathless in interest —the “novels of the year.”
(J ©NOPOLHAN is famous for its cover designs—the most striking on the newsstands, month
after month. Its illustrations are the best work of the greatest magazine artists, and its monthly
series of theatrical portraits, always uniquely presented, is one of its most perennially popular
features. In poetry, it has published some of the most notable work of recent years. Its trenchant,
critical articles and briefer notes on literary folk and phrases are, without exception, the ablest
in magazinedom.
AU in all, @NOPOUIAN is -the most universally interesting, the most sanely all-round magazine
of them aU—and at the same time the most refreshingly individual. Wherever anything is
read, will be read with delight
As an advertising medium, @MOPOUTAN is among the greatest of Hie great Just now
it is riding the crest of the wave. In volume of advertising it has stood first among all the
popular monthly magazines twice during the last few months. Its February number not only
headed the list in its class, but showed the greatest gain in advertising of all the monthlies
over the corresponding issue a year ago—namely, 30 pages. Its April number—out March Ist—
carries more net cash advertising than any previous number in the history of the magazine.
And this in spite of our firm conviction that the pre-panic numbers established a high-water
mark that would not soon be touched again. “ @MOPOUIAN -« the Empire of Advertising

I broken at Batesville, twenty miles

“The storm lasted twenty minutes
I and it was most terrific,” said Mr.
Speer while he was a visitor* 1 at Con
stable Trainer’s office this morning.
“Some of the stones were ten inches
in circumference and that is no fairy
tale. I measured some of the stones
i myself and several were ten inches in
i circumference. The stones came down
. with terrific force and nearly every roof
, in the town was damaged. The storm
; came after nightfall, when all the peo
ple were in doors, and that probably
prevented many fatalities, because I am
; sure that if one of those ten Inch ice
balls had struck a man in the head he
would have been killed.
“The ground was covered over a foot

rolled a large supply of them into sheds
where they covered them with sawdust.
They will have ice all summer.”
