Good for Rheumatism.

this Remedy I was much better, and
after using one?bottle, was completely
cured.—Sallie Harris, Salem, N. J.

The Depot Burglary Has Baffled Three
Messrs. Ballard and Hill, of the
Iron Mountain, and J. M. Wheeler,
of the Cotton Belt, all professional
railroad detectives, Lave been here
the past week endeavoring to estab
lish a clue that would lead to the
apprehension of the party or parties
who were implicated in the passen
ger depot burglary a few nights
since. It will be remembered that
sixty-five dollars in paper money
was boldly stolen from the vault of
the ticket office safe by the thieves.
The detectives instituted a thor
ough investigation of the case, but
without success. They closely
queried each and every attache of
the local railroad service, but were
unable t* throw any light on the
case that would lead to the identity
of the guilty.
The case is truly a mysterious t>ne
but from the character of the theft
it is the opinion of these interested
that the robbery was committed by
some one entirely familiar with the
affairs of the depot, one who had
carefully familiarized himself with
the general surroundings and waited
for the opportunity to seize the

son was at the Planters’ Hotel vith
Mrs. Thompson when the news
reached him. He is one of the prom
inent republicans of Arkansas.
“The convention was in session at
Pine Bluff when I left there yester
day,’’said Dr. Thompson, “but I
had made no effort to secure the in
dorsement for governor, and thecom
pliment was an entire surprise to me.
My wife and I are now on our way to
the Pacific coast to spend six weeks.
The republican state convention will
meet at Little Rock June 26, so I
cannot possibly make any canvass ol
the state or even attend the conven

want me to run, however. I will de

The Commercial Appeal Discusses
the Incident.
* The Memphis Commercial Appeal,
says editorially:
“Gov. Jeff Davis of Arkansas will
have to get along through this vale
of tears as best he can without any
church membership. Being expelled
from the Baptist church will not be
a recommendation to him to join any
other organization. That the church
which expelled him acted within its
legitimate authority we may well be
lieve, but it is not easy to see just
what is going to become of the gov
ernor. He has been thrown into
outer darkness by the saints because
they found him to be a sinner.
“The death of a sinner is not de;
sired, but it is desired that kq may
live and. repent, %nd it is mqfe like
ly that he will become repentant as a
member of a church organization
than when compelled to wander
about among sinners and non-be
lievers. While he is out and foot
loose Gov. Jeff may be expected to
go a rapid pace and enjoy all the de
lights of iniquity. He may as well be
hung for a sheep as a lamb and un
restrained indulgence will bring
about satiety and repentance. It is
difficult to repent while the fun lasts
but it is easy enough when a sinner
| wears himself put. Piety, then tykes
the place of wickedness.

Thomas J. Scaggs, Senior, director.
Mr. Scaggs feeling the importance of
his official position, proceeded to in
form himself of the business of the
district. The teacher being present,
Mr. Scaggs accosted him with the
following inquiries:
“Say Mr. Teacher .they tell me you
have ordered a blackboard and a
“Yes, sir, I have.”
“Well, they say the blackboard
cost seven dollars; I think that’s
mighty high, for I’ve got a big cy»
press board in my loft and I could
grind up my jack jttane and make it
smooth as glass, and I could have
taken it out to where I oil up my
.nets, and I got plenty cold tar left
to make it black as the ace of spades
and give it to the school, and save all
that money. Don’t you thiuk you are

“The kind of a board you speak of,
Mr. Scaggs, would not answer our
