Little Howard Rutledge. Little Howard Rutledge died Sept, 4, 15)14. He was six years old, half of that time, he was afflicted. He bore his affliction with great patience, he was lov ing and kind and submission as a little angel, all that father and mother and loving ''riends could do, was done to restore him back to health again. Your home has been darkened by the death of little Howard. A place is vacant that can never be filled, he is gone, but not forgotten. He lingers in my memory yet and in my heart he lives forever asleep in Jesus, blessed sleep, which none ever wake to weep. ; Resolved The black winged monster has entered the home of Mr. and Mrs. N. E Rutledge and1 claimed for its victim, little Howard, a bright and happy boy, the thoughts of hi n, will always be a treasure in my heart, one of his greatest pleasures was to come to see and talk, and when on account of his long illness, he was not able to come his presence and kind little words was greatly missed, all of the children were present when Howard died and it was very painful to know that Howard could be with them here no more, hut Howard has gone tn rpat in Hip r*nrp nf tViP I nwl and we know when the reward ing day comes, the pearly gates will be lifted up and the bright angels will meet Howard there, and he will enter that happy home to forever dwell, so let us remember Howard, a little bud in heaven, and I will say to you, father, mother, brothers and sisters, weep not for him, but live to meet him up yonder where pain and sorrow is no more. The funeral services were con ducted by Bro. Snider, and we will always remember the many kind and cheering things he said. His body was laid to rest at the Lesslev cemetery, attended by a large crowd of devoted relatives, and friends. Written by Mrs. Belinda Les sleyand Toka Lessley. Open Letter of Thanks. Editor of The Spectator. I note that the last issue of your valuable paper, contained an ar ticle from W. .1. McLaughlin in j which he stated that he was giv ing Ben Witherel lessons in i Socialism, and that when he gets I through with Ben Witherel. He then will give me lessons also. | I wish to express my thanks tip you. Uncle William, for your, kind offer, for don’t you think j that Socialism is only intended for such as you. Ben and myself? j But now, Ben says "By Golley” he is tired of such foolishness. So then i may get my lessons sooner than 1 expected Now, Uncle, won’t you give me my first lesson on how to nrocure an "affinitv” lit- p (Tpnr<**p i Shouf (they said) did when they furnished him the “Blue Prints” to prove that Otis burned his own building instead of the Me- j Namras? or like Upton Sinclair’s wife, after Upton had formed his socialist colony? Won’t you give me my my next lesson, and teach me like Ferrer did his scholars to tight Sham battles, and plan revolution, and study infideiit'-, You know that! we need all the wars, we can have, and we would want to learn .Infidelity, as religion teaches. There is a hell and a soul to be lost or saved, and that would in terfere with our lessons. So come on with your lessons, and! we will go to the “Bug House” together. Sip tied yours, then would be comrade in foolishness. W. R. James. —-—-—-—. Breeding Stock For Sale. 2 jacks, 1 harness and saddle, stallion. Best collection of breed ing stock in the state.

There is but little known about the shooting in Cobb township; but the following seems to be near the facts. Two men nam ed Kilgore, and Cole, had been indicted for distrubing religious worship, across the line in Madi son county. They had it in for the witnesses against them, hear ing it is supposed that one of them named Nickens was at a singing. They lay in wait near Cobb school house for him, one of them was armed with a Spencer rifle of the pattern of the sixties, used in the army. Seeing Nickens coming, riding ahead of the crowd, they fired, wounding him in the side, also dangerously wounding a twelve year old boy, the son of Leonard Craig, who who was riding be hind Nickens. Does Advertising Pay? The other day a local merchant elevated his chin, squared his shoulders, assumed a belligerent attitude and definatly told us that “advertising doesn’t pay.” He is still alive, but let uscon sider a minute: A London baronet who manu factures pills has sold a part of his real estate for the tidy sum of $30,000,000. He made it out of i.1.., r? l • 1 • i uit j.unto ui aim he built that business up by advertising, often spending as high as a half million dollars a year in printer’s ink John Wanamaker, the best known and most successful mer chant. in this country, made his millions by advertising, and said so. The great department stores of the country are kept alive In advertising and are coinirg money by more advertising. You never hear of a large mercantile house in this countr\ that does not advertise, and ad vertise heavily. If a political! wants to make himself known to the dear people he uses the most effective means newspaper publicity. That is advertising. If a new son arrives at your house, you are keen to have it “put in the paper,” where your friends will see it. thereby ad vertising the fact that you are walking on eggs. If the editor called you a thief in a two-line item and stuck it away in the* most obscure corner of the paper, would you pass it by in the belief that it “would never be noticed.” Never: you would consider yourself defamed before the entire community, and j you would paw up the earth in your heliowings. You would he only too quick to concede that every line in the paper is read. J Yes, advertising certainly pays. There is no ad so small or in significant, but vvliat some one is; waiting for it. There are plenty of people who! want what you have to sell, but I they are weary looking through a haystack for a needle. They prefer to find in it an advertise ment. And they will look in the local paper for the ad. They will find someone’s but will it be yours? ---—.—--— , To My Friends And Patrons. In departing for my old home at Russellville where I will practice medicine in the future, it is my desire to thank you for your patronage and to assure you that the same has been appreciat ed.
