MT. AYR BANK FAILS
Liabilities are $450,000 and Only
$750 in the Vault-Failure Has
Caused Consternation.
MT. AYR, Jan. 16. (Special)—With lia
bilities of $450,000 and only $750 in cash
in the vault, the Citizens' bank of thin
place closed its doors this moruiug.
The president, Day Dunning, estimates
the assets as close to the liabilities, but
there are others who say the depositors
will not get over 10 per cent. The bank
had over $400,000 In deposits.
Mr, Dunning aud his sons, Clyde Dun
ning the cashier, and Clarence Dunning
assistant cashier, held a consultation
after banking hours last night and de
cided that the end of their string had
been reached. Their attorney, F. F-.
Puller, was summoned at 5 o'clock this
morning, and a statement was prepared
to post on the bank door at 8 o'clock,
giving notice that Mr. Dunning had
turned over to John L. Patterson, of
Mt. Ayr, all his property except his
homestead for the benefit of his credi
tors. Mr. Patterson is a former county
treasurer and enjoys the confidence of
everybody.
Although it was stated today by Cash
ier Clyde Diwiwing "tillat a quiet run on
the bank had "been progressing for about
six weeks, the closing of its doors came
as a distinct -surprise to the business
and farming -community. The word
spread over town and county with great
rapidity on the dozens of telephone
lines, and presently farmers from every
directiwi came pouring into town.
"While there "were hundreds of deposit
tors hard 'bit, the talk was for modera
tion. MT. 'Dunning and most of the
•-heavy eredi tors agree that the matter
can be-settled much more economically
if it is ikept'Out of bankruptcy proceed
ings. Thccreditors got together this
forenoonnnd appointed John E. Scott,
Alex Shrimplin and Charles Robinson as
representatives to be present when
Messrs. Dunning and Patterson sched
uled the'the assets and liabilities. The
•creditors were invited to do this by Mr.
Dunning^ attorneys, Puller & Fuller.
-Messrs. Scott and Shrimplin are brokers
(While Mr. Robinson is a.brser and
jatockman, and a county supervisor.
r-'?'' The cause of the failure is supposed
"to be too great liberality in the loan
.-^business, and the depression in the cat
tie and hog markets. The Dunnings aae
extensive stock feeders and shippers,
and besides are financial backers of
mmy other stock men. As to the loans,
a.local business man said this morning:
-""Day Dunning has succumbed to a
marked trait in his character. I have
known liim for long years, and have
talked with him intimately in relation
to business and many other matters, and
•y '.I never had to do with a man who was
more persistently thinking of the other
^fellow's rights and interests. He always
was ready to give everybody ail the
'help he could, and in this way he assum
erl more of other people's burdens thaa
he could carry."
The safety of the other financial in
stitution. the Mt. Ayr bank, owned by
-Allyn Bros., is not threatened- The
Allyns own, free from incumbrance,
thousands of acres of Ringgold county
,land, and it is the unanimous sense of
&M4he business community that their bank
k'is. on a solid basis, especially as they
have foreseen the crash and have been
(/preparing for it.
The local sentiment in favor of moder
ate methods in order to make the estate
pay out to the best advantage may not
meet the approval of the representa
tives of autside banks and live slock
•commission houses, who have not yet
j,arrived.
rr
The heaviest local creditor is John E.
deposit.
f,/•' Scott, who had §18,000 on
Ringgold county had only §1,700 in the
r\ bank. Dr. J. H. White had $8,000, A. R.
.Shrimplin §8,000, F. M. Eighme and his
sons §0,000, and Hon. R. H. Spence
,':/ $4,000. A few of the creditors are
particularly unfortunate in losing prac
^''.tically all their possessions. The esti
•t mates of the amounts to be realized for
the creditors if bankruptcy proceedings
gk are averted is from 00 to 90 per cent,
which however, is largely guess work.
Day Dunning is about 55 years of age.
He came here 49 years ago with his
father, B. B. Dunning, the foundor of
Mt. Ayr, and has been one of the town's
prominent people ever since. He is the
father of thirteen children. He and
Mrs. Dunning and their children fill a
large place in Mt. Ayr life. He founded
the Citizens' bank in May, 1880, and has
been at its head for the twenty-three
years of its existence. The bank occu
pies a fine stone building, erected in
1892, on the busiest corner in the town.
Mr. Dunning is a prominent Methodist
layman. ,1» v'

MORTUARY.
Death of Charlo P. Flnley.
Persons who reside long in a particu
lar community come to be recognized as
land marks in that locality. This is
peculiarly true in the present instance.
For at least five decades the person of
the deceased has been a familiar figure
on the streets and in the activities of
the town. One by one these landmarks
are being removed by death. Charlo
Parker Finley was born in Iowa, while
it was yet a territory, at New London,
Nov. 28, 1812, and died in l^eoii, Jan. 10,
1904, being 61 years, 1 month and 18
days old. While Mr. Finley was yet
boy his parents moved first to
Bloom field, Iowa, and then in the
spring of 1858 to Leon. The father of
the deceased, Dr. John Patterson Fin
ley, long and favorably known in this
community, died March 11,1881, and the
mother of the deceased, Mrs. Maria
Louise Finley, died Jan, 5, 1805. Mr.
Finley was the third child in a family of
seven children.- On Nov. 10, 18C9, he
united in marriage to Jessie Hammer.
To this union tVo children were born,
namely Ella and Florence. Mr. Finley
has always been recognized as an up
right and straightforward man. He was
a good citizen, an indslgent -father,
and a kind and loving husband. No
effort or sacrifice required for the (pro
tection and welfare of his family, was
ever regarded toy him as too great. In
every possible way hrsown life was
given the hardship -to •shield them from
hardship and ^exposure. For-a number
of years the disability -of'impaired hear
ing necessitated his withdrawal "from
public activities, brtt iflubing tkas period
he has maintained a, cheerful -spirit and
uitccasln(g activity tin private ®fe. His
absence will be noted by the pnHIic In
general, tent to those to wlMtm'liis life
has been as the-Shadow of. a great rock
in a desert plaoe, 'His sibscnce will be
felt with a severally keen consciousness.

Esther Marshall.
died at her home In Decatur City, Iowa,
Jan. 13,1904, after an illness of only a
few days, during whieh t^me she suffer
ed both day and night. She was the
second ehild -of Mr. uid Mrs. Ernest
Marshall and was loved by all who
knew her. She was kind and gentle in
her way and always doing something
to please her parents and sister. The
funeral services were held in the
Church of Christ at Decatur City by the
Christian minister of Kellerton, the text
being found in Matt. 18, whieh was cer
tainly a very appropriate one for the
occasion. All that kind hearts and
loving hands could do was done for the
little one, but God saw fit to take her
away, for He says "suffer little children
to come unto me and forbid them aot,
for such is the Kingdom of Heaven." We
extend our heartfelt sympathy to the
bereaved parents* and sister, and ask
them to put their trust in Jesus, for He
is able to save all who put their trust
in Him.

The Showing Made on Behalf of
Charles Woodard Who Was Re
0 leased on $20,000 Bonds.
There has been some talk indulged in
as to why Judge Miller admitted
Charles Woodard, who was indicted for
the murder of his wife, to bail, a great
many people having the erroneous im
pression tliat when a person is indicted
for murder in the first degree they can
not be admitted to bail. The law is
that after a person has been convicted
of murder in the first degree he can not
bo admitted to bail pending an appeal
to the supreme court, but after indict
ment and before the defendant has been
tried, where the presumption of guilt is
not too great it is within the discretion
of the court to remand the de&sn^
ant to Jail without bond or to admit hinft
to bail. For the benefit of the public
we give the court record of the applica
tion of Charles 'Woodard to be admitted
to bail.
C. W. Hoffman, one of the defendant's
attorneys, being duly sworn, made the
•following statement to the court:
1 will state to the court that this
woman died on the 15th day -of. Decem
ber, 1903 that the defendant from'
that day until the 27th -of Decem
ber, 1903, that
"the coroner's inquest was
held, I believe, the 10th day of Decem
ber, 1903, wa£ at large with knowledge
of this investigation. That "on-the 27th,
being the day the prelimina-ry informa
tion was filed before Justice"-pt the
Peace, ho was phoned—the defendant
living about eight miles from. Leon,
three miles and a half north of Decatur
City in said county—t® come tto Leon.
He came and surrendered himself to the
sheriff. The preliminary investigation
was Continued axid the defendant was
admitted to bail -in tfoe sura G' ten thou-,
sand dollars, and has been owt upon said
bail until to-flay when he was phoned to
appear in this court,, and voluntarily
appeared. He lives
-on a faami, has three
children, a boy of fifteen, :a girl a boat
twelve and another chikl about eight
and he has tke -sale care -of the children.
In connection with my 'testimony, we
will^offer the evidence «as 'taken before'
the grand wWoih we think w£adBd
not make s*tch a case-as would pcewent
this man from feeing admitted to bail.
The Court:—Is there anything .you
desire to say wi -regard to the matter,
Mr. County Attorney?
Mr» Olsea:—All I have to say is this:
that this matter, as the court knows, is
entirely discretion(vr-y "with the 'court,
as to whether or mot the defendant
shall Ite admitted tbo 'bail. The inquiry
before the griuid ,'jary seems to ihave
been full and it is tmade a pant of the
records of this case so far as tkiiis ques
tion of being permitted to give bail is
concerned, amd I tiuink the Court in the
examination of that, can determine this
question. Of conese, so far as the'-utate
is concerned, we ame 'content wisbh what
ever the Court feeds to be his'- .duty in
the premises.
Mr. Hoffmann—I might add ito my
statement tihat the testimony if practi
cally circumstantkL It shows for it
self.
The Courts—On eonsideratomn &>nd
agreement of parties :as to the .amount,
the defendant is admitted to bail in the
sura of $20,000, and in default thereof is
remanded to Jail in iDeeatur eonnty
until legally discharged.

Kuth Cleveland.
K.uth Cleveland,-daughter of "ex-Presi
dent Grover Cleveland, who died.yester
day marttwig, was-born October 14,1894,
and was twelve years old. -As "Baby
Ruth, Mr. -Cleveland's first •burn pos
silly was the most talked rfchild in the,
country in her infancy. -She was born'
at 8M1 Madison -avenue,. in New York
soda -after the expiration of Mr. Cleve
land's first term. It is said that she
was named-after-one of Mm. Cleveland's
graiudtnothers, -bat.a siocy is Itold that
hea- -name was for that of Miss Ruth
Tappan of Potsdam, N. 5T. a member of
anold Dutch .family.
Riuth Cleveland was so slow learning
to -talk that it was ireported that she was
aimute. GUaieral Wade Hampton took
pleasure in refuting the story. One day
he had been to see the
.president. After
leaving the room lie was waiting in the
hall -for the elevator -jfeserved for the
president's own use. .In. a few minutes
ii.tble Kutk and her inUree came along.
He went up and spoke to hoc. She was
hardly twe.years-old then. "I talked to
4»er.," said General -Hampton, ".until the
elevator came in .-sight. She -did not say
a word. Then she raised a little hand
pointed a, little dinger and said, tio,
inow.r Afterward Itald the president she
had evidently caiught -the words from
him when he was Cked of some persis
tent office-seeker.'"
When Mt Cleveland was ^elected the
second time aad succeeded President
Haunrisou, the aewspaper car.toor(ists had
fiui with the retiring administration by
picturing the succession of "Baby Ruth'
and the discomfitaiire -of '"Baby McKee,"
the infant "ruler" -of the white house in
the republican administration. The
"battle of babies"' eon tinned some time
after Mr. Harrison's retirement.
The death of Ruth Cleveland will be
even a greater shock to the ex-President
than might be supposed, as ihis retire
ment from public service has made him
more than ever dependent upon his fam
ily. When visited recently at his home
by newspaper men and politicians who
wanted his views on the possibility of
his becoming a candidate for the presi
dency, Mr. Cleveland said he was happy
in his quiet family life and did not de
sire the excitement of a campaign.
Mr. Cleveland's other children are:

White house: Marion, born July 7, 1805,

In Bed Four Weeks with La Grippe.
We have received the following letter
from Mr. Roy Kemp, of Angola, Ind. "I
was in bed four weeks with la grippe
pnd I tried many remedies and spent
considerable for treatment with physi
cians, but I received no relief until I
tvied Foley's Honey and Tar. Two
small bottles of this remedy cured me
and .now I use it exclusively in my
family." Take no substitutes. L. P.
