Interment In Greenwood. j A D0LDJ;0RGIiR Victimizes a Merchant to the Tune of Forty Dollars. Jo. Rosenfleld Baa an Experience In Cashing- a Check Which Will be a Good Lesson. On Iret Wednesday evening a man giving his name aa B. F. Williams walked in the business house of J. Rosenfleld & Co. and wanted to pur chase a suit of clothing. A BnltM man had no trouble in Belling him a coat and vest and a Mcintosh over coat, which ran the bill up to $2100. He told the salesman to let the goodi remain in the house until Tue-iday morning as he had a check he would have to get cashed before he could pay the bill. He seemed familiar with Clarksville and conversed pleas antly with the men in the house, Finally the conversation reverted t the bill he had made, when he Inno cently remarked that if they had money enough to cash his check he would pay the bill then. Joe Rosenfleld proposed to cash it for him if it would be any accommoda tion. Tho check was produced and it was made payable to B. F. Wil liams. It was for $10.00 and was on the Bank of Elkton, signed by Miller & Chandler, merchants ol Elkton, well known to Mr. Rosenfleld. Williams endorsed the check and re ceived $19.00 in good hard cash. He picked up his bundle saying he was going around to the Northington House for supper. He got his supper and engaged a room for the night. It was afterward learned, however, that he did not occupy the bed, but left possibly on the 10 o'clock train for the South. The Thursday following this trans action was Thanksgiving Day and the check was not deposited by Mr. Rosenfleld until Friday. It reached Elkton on Sunday, and yesterday Mr. Rosenfleld was notified that it was a forgery. Ho immediately dis patched Chas. A. Hooper to Elkton to investigate. Upon his arrival at Elkton Mr. Hooper found that Clarksville was not the only place Williams had worked liH scheme successfully. He victimized several merchntsat Elkton in the same way, and came from that place to Uarksville. People over there say his true name is Hobt. Stenuit and that he is a slick scroundrt l for all the term implies, lie is rather a handsome tellow, being about 5 feet 10 inches high and well proportioned. When here he was wearing sandy side whiskers and was well dressed in a dark woolen .suit. The sales man with whom he traded thinks that he walked from Elkton to Clarksville as bis ftet and trouper legs were muddy. Theatfair was kept quiet until this morning with the hope that Wil liams or Htennit could be arrested Chief Stafford has hold of tho case now and will use his utmost to bring him back. The belief prevails both here and at Elkton that the scoundrel has gone to Memphis. Bucklen'a Arnica Salve.

The Jury Chosen To Try Geo. W.. Avant. Twelve Disinterested Men Will Deeide Whether He Shall Go Free Or Han? By the Neck, The Avant murder trial Is nojp well urnier headway and is attracting large crowds to the court-house. The jury was secured yesterday, and it is composed of tho following men : Sam Martin, Wm. Davis, J. L. Dean, J. A. Jackson, J. W. 8eay, M. C. Pack, W. U. Garrett, Wm. Reynolds, Sam Jackson, C. E. Robinson, H. B. Wil liams, J. K. Kennedy. After the jury had been completed yesterday evening the prosecution introduced its first witness in the person of Mrs. Rives. After hearing her testimony court adjourned until this morning. When the court re-convened to day the room was full of people. W. J. Powers, prosecutor in the case, was the first witness. He is a brother-in-law to the prisoner and his evidence is strong against Avant. He gave a detailed account of the case, together with much Avant had said to him the day before Mrs. Avant died. A stenographer, frjm Nashville, Mr. Ganmway, has been employed to take the evidence as it is given. He is an expert in his line, and has had much experience in reporting court proceedings. From the best evidence at hand it is believed that the case will hardly go to the jury before the first or per haps the middle of next week.

The interest in the revival service at the Baptist church is undimin ished, there being three professions of conversion at last night's meeting. Mr. Hale is doing some very faithful preaching and is exerting an influ ence rarely proceeding from any man's ministry. His expositions of Scripture are models of clearness, based on sound, logical principles. A case in point was his sermonette, us he termed it, preceding his regu lar sermon iBst night. His exposi tion of the "New Birth" presented that matter in a wholly tangible form to many who previously looked upon it as incomprehensible. Service will continue through the week at 3 and 7 p. rn.
