of L T. Simmons, of this city, are
urging him to make the race for
County Treasurer of Pottawatomie

candidate. He is a man of sterling
qualities and wide business ex
perience, who stands high with all
who know him. He has a host of
friends, for sociability, congeniality
and integrity are his chief character
istice." The Bulletin' note with
pleasure the favorable impression
Mr. Sammons has made in his new
home. He was born and reared in
this county and comes from a long
line of ancestry, noted for upright
ness and integrity and he is a worthj
and deserving descendant. We be
lieve that he will discharge faith
fully and honestly the duties of any
position he accepts.

The many friends . of Miss
Wren Pearson, who is now study

ed to know of ber success there in
complimentary notice lecently ap
peared in the New York Press:
At the last students' concert of
Mr. and Mrs Delhaz-W ickes, a
feature o splendid interest was the
artistic -violin playing of Miss Wren
Pearson, a gifted pupil of Mr.
Wickes, who possesses sincere mu
sical feeling, aud a pleasing tone,
with qualities that seem to insure
i her a place among the best resident
I violinist. On this occasion she was
heard in two groups, the trio of
Gade, an ensemble number, assisted
by Mr. Kef.-r, first 'cellist of. the
Ddiuro?ch orchestra, aud Mine.
Wiches at the piano. The second
part she played a Mazourka of Zir
zycki, that is so popular among vi
olinists, and the- second movement
from the fourth Concerto of Vieux
temps." Protests Against the Pavements.
Editor Bulletin As one of
many ladies who admire and enjoy
neatness, my disgust and indigna
tion at the condition of the pave
ment in front of certain business
houses in our town, induces me to
try and do away with the nuisauce
by calling the attention of the au
thorities to it through your paper.
E-tch lime we have to pass there,
we feel that we .may be carrying
around with us in our skirts every
concievable, horrible microbe, bac
teria, germ of all kinds of diseases,
from the sputa, "etc., all over the
pavement. There must be some
way to do away with this state of
things and it should be done.
Then, another careless, sloveuly
way our people have fallen into that
we should like to see done away
with, is the habit of throwing old
refu-ed papers and trash from' the
daily sweepings" into the street, to
be blown hither and yon by the
winds, giving our really beautiful,
broad streets a most untidy, sloven
ly appearance. .A. much neater way
would be for each one to burn up
his trah as lit sweeps it up. It
strikes me now would be a first rate
time for the young ladies and gen
tlemen to organize a Town Im
provement Society." There is cer
tainly room for improvement in our
town, and a world of energy run
ning to waste amongst our young
people that properly directed could
accomplish wonders. Lady.
Bolivar, Term , Fen. 19, ll04.
Defends Municipd Administration.
Editor Bulletin Our corporate
authorities have been censured in
regard to the condition of the plank
walks and pavements of Bolivar.
Doubtless there are a few broken
and perhaps loose plank on some of
the walks, but taking into consider
ation the fact that there is twelve
miles of plank walk within the city
limits, and the further fact that the
tr. arury is not oveiflowing with
funds, I am of the opinion that the
censure. js unjust; and I believe the
walks of Bolivar are equal, if not
superior, to those of any other town
of like size w here the tax rate is the
same. Much of the credit of this
is due to Mr. T. A. Parran,-who has
been chairman of the street commit
tee for years, and who has taken
jreat interest in the work.
So far as the pavements are con
cerned, the people who own prop
erty facing same should look after
that matter. Justice.

In Memory of Dr. J R. Anderson
The subject of this sketch was
the son of J R, and Frances F.
Anderson, born- December 20th,
1831, died February Glh, 1904, aged
72 years, one mouth and sixteen
days. Be was married to Eliza
beth Eastham April 30th, 18G5- He
graduated in the Medical College in
Nashville iu 1857, was a close stu
dent and was one of the leading
physicians in this community for
yeais. In 1882 he moved to Ala
sou's Halt, iu Obion County, bought
a home there and practiced medi
cine very successfully for nine
years, but his wife never fully be
came satisfied, she wanted to return
to the old home neighborhood,
hence he sold his property and
moved back to Teuuessee in 1891,
! after which he never followed his
profession so extensively as iu for
mer years, owing to his declining
health. After the death of his wife,
July 4, 18-7, he almost gave up
professional calls entirely, except iu
his immediate family, but seemed
to love to study his journals and
papers as much a ever, often pre
scribing aud sending medicine to
the afflicted when unable to visit
the sick. He will not only be
greatly missed by his family but by
the frieuds generally who often
came to him for advice. He was a
firm believer in salvation by grace,
always contended for the truth and
many times did he rejoice in its
beautiful admonitions during his
illness, calling "Sweet Jesus to re
member him" and imploring a bless
ing on his loved ones who staid
with him anil waited on him every
night for over three months before
his death. He was so gentle, kind
and polite, so fearful that he might
do something he ought not, would
ask u- to forgive him, and it was a
pleasure to administer to his every i
wish. He claimed a hope many ;
years ago, and regretted that he had J
not discharged his duty in joining!
the church and leading a more ex
ernplary life. He leaves three
brothers and two sisters with many
relatives and friends who will sadly
miss him in many ways; yet we be
lieve he has crossed the dark river
to meet the loved ones on the other
shore, where pain aud parting are

More than that land is the source of ail wealth. The ratio of
population to acreage is the sliding scale upon which opportunity
is guaged, success determined. Cut the number of land-holders
in any Slate in the Union in two, and what is the result? It is
simple arithmetic opportunities double in that State. What if
three fourths the population be eliminated? Opportunities quad
ruplet!; and so on. That's the condition in the gre3t Southwest,
Arkansas, Indian Territory and Oklahoma. This vast territory is
supporting less than one fourth the population of its capacity.
Fertile land wherr- whiat and cotton thrive side by side where
two yearly vegetable crops are demonstrated possibilities the
