To the Ministers of Lee County.
The Journal is, at all times, ready
and anxious, to print notices of marri
ages and deaths occurring in Lee county.
These ate subjects that come directly
under the notice of the ministers of the
churches to which the parties affected
belong. It is a source of pleasure to
young people who marry to have nice
things said of them and of comfort to
tlie friends of the dead to read of their
virtues as written by friends. The
Journal freely gives space in its columns
for marriage notices and obituaries and
frequently, in the absence of these
notices written by friends, undertakes
to do so itself. P makes no charge for
doing this but performs this service
through respect io the families inter
ested. We want to ask tlie ministers
of the countv their aid in this work
and to impress on them the importance
of an early notice of all such events.
We print today the obituary of a
prominent and popular young man who
died several weeks since. We were not
informed of this until Inst wcck. This
sad event would certainly have been
noticed bv us had we known of it
earlier We trust our Jriends. the
ministers, will feel that it is a part of
their work to aid us in this matter.
Plant Oats.
In another place we present an adver
tisement of Clark & Co., who have, on
hand and for gale, twelve hundred
bushels of the celebrated Fgvutinn black
oats. This is regarded as the most
certain variety to plant in this latitude
and we have heard it said hyoid farm
ers that it, never fails to make a crop il
sown at this season of the \ear.
It would be a good thing for our
farmers to do this fall, to sow full crops
of oats. The corn crop is good, but a
great, deal of corn must be fed to make
meat for the county. It would lie a fine
idea to strengthen the corn crib with
j the help of a liberal number of oat
stacks. There is nothing that is better
for plow stock when either nt work or j
at rest. It is an exceedingly profitable
crop and should be grown by every
farmer in the laud. Don’t fail to sown
few bushels,

Negro W oman Killed.
Pise quiet of the peaceable city of
(iuntown wan disturbed Sunday evening
by a tragedy which involves some mys
tery and t wo negro men were arrested
charged with the killing Neal Bryson
approached the house where his former
wife and I’ink Dowd, a negro man and >
another negro woman were sitting on •
the veranda. When in a few feet of
Dowd, Neal drew a hull-dog pistol and
iirod point, blank at nim, the ball strik
ing his coat lapel, but failing to enter
his body. Dowd beat a hasty retreat
into the house and closed the door.:
Bryson's wife grabbed the pistol hand |
of her husband and the weapon was !
fired into the floor or ground. Bryson
then went around to the window in his
efforts to find Dowd and his wife also
went into the house. Another ball was
fired by some one which took effect in
the woman's neck, breaking it. The re
port of the pistol brought several to
the house and the woman was found
lying in the room, life being extinct. An
examination by the coroners jury the
following morning brought out the
above facts ns we understand. An ex
amination of the bead failed to locate
the ball which did the deadly work. It
is thought that the ball after striking
a bone ranged downward and lodged in
the upper part of the body but it could
not be definitely located. After the
shooting Bryson went to Baldwyn
where he gave himself up. He made
a charge against BLnk Dowd for the
killing and at the perliminary trial
Tuesday before Mayor Hinds and
Ksquire Luther Bryson, there was not
sufficient evidence to hold either of the
men for murder in the opinion of the
justices. Neal Bryson was placed under
bond to await the action ot the grand
jury on a charge of assault upon Dowd.
W. M. (’ox. Ksq , represented Bryson
and J, Q. Itobins. Ksq , appeared for
Dowd before the committing court.
