InTews from the great coin
belt of the Southwest indi
cates that the forty days'
drouth has at last been brok
en. Copious showers have
fallen in nearly all portions
ot the stricken section, and
more rain is predicted. The
late crops will receive the
greatest benefit. With the
break in the drouth has come
a general drop in temperature
and a consequent decrease in
the number of deaths and
Judge JVI. M. Neil, of
Trenton, candidate for a seat
upon the Supreme bench,
visited Bolivar this week.
For thirty-five years past,
J udge!Neil has been a member
of the Gibson county bar.
When the Court of Chancery
Appeals was created, under
Gov. Turney's administra
tion, Mr. Neil was appointed
a member from West Ten

was re-elected by the people
He has many friends through

in this division.
With this issue, the Bol
ivar Bulletin closes its
thirty-seventh year. To-day
it enjoys the most libera
patronage in its history a
fact which is gratifying to
the management, because
is evidence of. appreciation
by the public, without whose
support the paper could no
have existed. The Bulle

judged by its past record.
It will continue to give the
news and to advocate such
measures, as in its opinion,

Judge John L. T. Sneed
died at his home in Buntyn
Monday morning in the 83rd
year of his age. He was
native of North Carolina and
moved to West Tennessee in
early life. He was a brave
soldier in the Mexican and
civil wars, was on the Su
preme Bench, was attorney
general for the state, Chan
cellor of Shelby county, and
filled many other positions.
He was a polished, courtly
gentleman, of commanding
appearance and pleasing ad
dress, honest, sincere and ac
complished much good du
ring his long and eventful
The unprecedented drouth
throughout the country has
caused a scarcity of corn and
feed stuffs generally, and a
corresponding advance in
prices ; therefore our farmers
should make every effort to
raise as much "roughness" as
possible. A large acreage of
old corn in Hardeman coun
ty has been cut and shocked.
The same has been done in
many other counties, and the
land has been immediately
replanted in corn. Why not
our farmers do likewise ?
Having been well cultivated,
these lands should respond
quickly and favorably with
anything like a season. While
the second crop may not ma
ture, still roasting ears could
be raised, and the stalk will
furnish food for stock. Rec
ords prove that good results
have been obtained from the
second planting of corn even
as late as August 10th. The
experiment is worthy of a
orator Sfnfo rr rrn n lias nrpn.-
ted a stir anions the Bryan
Democrats by printing a lead
ing editorial on Bryan and
silver. Tne comment is ad
dressed to Mr. Bryan, and is
designed to give him to un
derstand that sentiment has
changed in that state, for it
declares that an overwhelm
ing majority of the Indiana
Democrats indorse the Ohio
platform. Commenting on
Mr. Bryan's statement "that
the money question is not out
of politics," the Sentinel de
clares: "If Mr. Bryan means
that the question of the free
coinage of silver at the ratio
of 1G to 1, without the con
sent of any other nation, is
not out of politics, the Senti
nel must reluctantly but em
phatically differ with him.
And the Sentinel begs leave
to say -with all the emphasis
that it can command, that the
silver question is out of poli
tics, if not for all time, a
m .a w .
least tor as lone a time as
existing conditions prevail
which may be for a genera
tion or more to come. It is
out of politics because the
American people have three
times passed upon the ques
tion and have pronounced
with constantly increasing
emphasis against free coin
age. It is out of politics be
cause the business of the
world has adjusted itself to
the gold standard, and be
cause the relief which free
coinage was expected to af
ford has come from the in
creased supply of gold and
other causes, and, 'finally,
is out of politics because
events have evolved another
issue so vital and of such
overshadowing importance as
to dwarf it into insignifi
cance." In conclusion, the
editorial declares that the
''boys in the trenches, the
men who go to the primaries
are tired of the fatuous Bour
bonism which would link the
party to the corpse of an is
sue which, however vital a
one time, has been killed by
the logic of events and buried
under a thrice-repeated ava
lanche of popular disapprov

which caused a valuable horse much suffering, but
from which permanent injury was avoided by the
timely use of Mexican Mustang Liniment.
La Grange, Tenn., Jan. 6, 1901.
Lyon Manufacturing Co.,
Brooklyn, N. Y.
Dear Sirs : I wiU say that your Mexican Mustang
Liniment has done a wonderful cure in this -part of the
country. I own the stallion known as the M State of Ten
nessee," who has a large patronage both far and near his
service this Spring to date is 102 mares. I was offered
400x0 when he was two years old. I refused same. Then
some one took him from the stable and commenced with a
wire and wrapped the right leg from the foot up to his hip,
and after standing all Tright the leg had swollen so large as to
hide the wire, and in five days the leg bursted and the flesh
turned inside out. I spent large sums of money to have him
cured but up to five months ago it was quite a failure, and
then a friend induced me to try a bottle of your liniment. I
used one of the 25-cent bottles because I did not have much
faith in it, but it helped him so much that I bought a second,
third and fourth bottle, which -completely cured him. The
reason it took so long to cure is that it had a kind of itching
sensation when it was healing a little, when he would bite it
with his teeth. I put the liniment on the wound with a feath
er and rubbed the swollen parts with my hand.
Mexican Mustang Liniment seemed to take out all the
itching as well as to cause it to heal rapidly, and he showed
no disposition to interfere with it. The one dollar purchase
has been worth hundreds of dollars to me. I keep your
Liniment in my breeding stable all the time, and to those
who have horses I will say it is the best liniment that money
can buy. I will answer all inquiring letters.
ATery truly yours,
J. C WALTON.

U' For Over
Democrats Can Win on
Trusts and Tariff Issue.
Washington, July 27. -"If the
democrats nominate a good 00086.:-
vative man for J'resident in 1904,
110 matter from what section of tie
country he may come, and make t'ae
contest on the issues ot the trusts
and tariff we will win," said Repre
sentative Patterson, of the Memphis
district, to a reporter-for tbe Times
"There are plenty of men in the
democratic party who possess presi
dential qualifications and they are
not confined to any particular sec
tion of the country. - I am opposed
to the theory that the South must
be barred in the matter for furnish
ing the candidate for President
aud Vice President. I believe we
should nominate the most available
man, irrespective of what state he
may live in.' . ,
looking to the future. The next"
campaigu will not be fought out on
dead issues. The best evidence of
this-is the Ohio state platform. I
heartily indorse that platform be-,
cause it presents to the people live
issues. It. was a great disappoint
ment to the. republicans when the
Ohio democrats jefrained from re
affirming the Kansas City platform.
I believe democratic conventions in
other states will ulso do as the Ohio
democrats did, and adopt platforms
to meet the issues of the present in
stead of the past.
,4I see it stated in many of the
leading papers that the republicans
will revise the tariff next winter
Well, it is not at all probable that
the republicans will, iutefere with
the source whence they get their
money. In my opinion they will
not revise the tariff. Of course
there will no doubt be many sepa
rate tariff bills introduced in the
House next winter, but I doubt if
any of them will ever formally be re
ported by the Ways and Means com
mittee. However, the tariff question
is sure to come to the front, and in
my iudgment the tariff and the
trusts will be the issue between the
two parties in 1904."
