Takes the Scalp of the Mountain Boys In Fine Style.. .Great Game Played Wednesday afternoon in the liveet, red-hot te t baseball game ever staged In the mountains, the Cookevllle team was returned winners over Livingston by a score of 4 to 2. , To Lon Jones the credit belongs for he held the hard hitting visitors with a paper string and fed 'em raw meat from his naked hand, leaving them perfectly tame and harmless when they returned to their mountain lair. The scoring started In the first in nings with Russel getting on with a hard hit through short. B. Carlen sac rificed Donald to second and he went to third with one of his famous hook slides when Wilh'te hit to the infield. With Wilhite on first and Russell on third and Alcora up things began to look lively. Alcorn bunted and Russell scored. Copeland filed out and Alcorn was doubled at first. , We have received the first issue of The Golden Age, published at Living ton, with B. G. McGee as editor. It will be assistant republican in politics, but we don't imagine it will kick up very much dust. Punam county will furnish the next railroad commissioner for Tennessee, both the nominees, G. N. Welch and W. G. Sadler, residing at Monterey. Well bet a nickel's worth of goobers the winner's name begins with George. Practically all th Independene Dem ocratic newspapers in the state are spporting the Democratic ticket this year, and a majority of the indepen dent voters are doing the same. It strikes us that with proper effort the Democratic ticket is sure to win. The Nashville Banner is handing out a nice brown roast to Hon. O. K. Holladay nearly every day. None of Its mud will st'ck, however, as Mr. Holladay has too clean a record on the temperance question for the Banner to destroy, or even puncture In any re spect. . From the charges the Banner is now making we would not be sur prised to see it put forth the claim and offer prof that Mr. Holladay not only never had anything to do with the temperance law that bears his name, but that he never sat as a member of the state senate. The Banner Is evi dently bilious. SATISFIED WITH RYE The Democrats of DeKalb county are Batisned with their nominee for gover nor and will give him loyal support. The delegates from DeKalb were in structed to cast the vote of the county for Judge A. H. Roberts and Hon. T.R. Preston was their second choice, but now that the nomination has been made in one of the largest and most . enthusiast state conventions ever held, we'll take Rye. Smithville Re view. . TALKS LIKE A DEMOCRAT - Frank A vent, defeated candidate for the Democratic nomination for railroad commissioner, has given out the fol lowing statement: I have no funeral oration prepared, but I do want to say to the people of Tennessee that I shall continue to be a true and loyal Democrat. The party has fed and clothed me and mine for the last 16 years and the obligations are all on me,' and so long as Illve my services are at the command of my friends, the Democratic party. My canvass was conducted on a high plane, but it was conducted on no "cleaner or higher plane than that of my distinguished opponent. I want to say to my friends throughout Tennes see that I am an elector for the Hon. George N. Welch, and I beg of them to give him the same loyal support they would have given me. He is a true friend, a Democrat without guile, and with it all an honor able and upr'ght gentleman. I can never live long enough to repay the many obligations I owe to the people of Tennessee and " the Democratic party. . , With Henry county's distinguished, eloquent and Christian gentleman, the Hon. Thomas C. Rye, as our chief standard bearer, anil Putnam county's true, brave, generous and most compe tent son, the Hon. George N. Welch, as his running mate, there can and will be but one result when the ides of No vember arrive. My offloe does not ex pire until January next. In the mean time I hope to establish myself in some congenial and profitable busi ness. , Allow me again to express to the people of Tennessee my deepest gratitude. Feel languid, weak, ; run down?

Copeland With His Big Stick In the second Livingston scored two runs on a double and two wild throws, and these were all she got at all. Cookevllle did her next scoring on Copeland's homcrun down the left field line. Then Wilhite beat out a bunt, and scored a moment late ron Alcorn's threebagger. The last run came when Wilhite caught a fat one on the nose and drove U over the left field fence for a homerun and the longest hit of the season. Livingston was always dangerous, but Jones had their numbers and In the pinches bad more stuff than Wal ter Johnson, seeming to have regained his old time form. Livingston would not have got a man beyond second base but for errors. Wilhite Doing a Homerun Stunt Russell caught his usual star game and ran bases like a wild man. B. Carlen and A. Carlen played a great defensive game. A. Carlen put up a great game at short and saved the game time after 'ime. Bohannon 1 the bright particular Living out of Livingston, yet some will say Bohannon Is the better pitcher. Ragland, the best shortstop in Mid dle Tennessee, could not get in the lineup on account of a bad knee. Livingston has a strong team. Their fielding is splendid and in Mitchell they have a corking good catcher. If they would quit their rag-chewing and umpire baiting they would win more games. They were outclassed in the game Wednesday. That's all. Berry and Fowler did the umpiring and gave both sides a square deal. Livingston went to Crossville today and managed to drop another game. Cookevllle went to Monterey Monday to get a little practice and got licked 6 to 2. Batteries H. Carlen and Lynch. and Pugh and Goff. They stayed over Tuesday and won the game 5 to 4, Rus sell doing the hurling for Cookevllle. Saturday the boys go to Carthage for a game. Peebles will pitch and if the Carthaginians win they will have to play some ball.

Sister, mamma and the writer came box artist for Cumberland University from good old Tennessee April 24. We and Is tuoted as one of the best ama teur pitchers in the state, bu Jones pitched rings, stars and moons around him in this game. They have met four times. Jones beat Castle Heights with Bohannon In the box. One game was a tie. Last Saturday Cookevllle made nine hits oft Bohannon at Liv ingston, while four was all they could take off Jones, yet he lost 5 to 2, by reason of errors. Wednesday Jones won easily four to two, and took the Livingston and Hia Umpt are down at grandpa's, where there Is plenty of fish. Grandpa bought a big catfish that weighed 37. pounds.

I hear of so many old Tennessee friends through Its columns It does my heart good to read them. There are some Improvements go ing on. Crops of all kinds are good so far. We have had lots of rain. Myself and wife went across the Arkansas river Sunday to see Harris on Martin and had an old fashioned dinner, such as fried chicken, young potatoes and all kinds of good things to eat. I saw corn waist high and in good shape, and cotton lookes well. Mr. Martin and Family are well and doing well considering tne hard times that are on the farmers In this coun try. I have had lots of letters from old friends since I was in Tennessee last winter by taking your paper and It has been lots of comfort to me. It has put me in touch with men that I thought were dead. I w'sh I had been at the reunion of the McKlnley family at Chestnut Mound. I would have seen many of my old friends. I have staid at this place many a night. I served as a soldier allover those hiiis. 1 was in Co. B. Tennessee mounted infantry under Capt. E. D. Pennington and Col. Garrett who was shot by one of his own men at uranvuie, wmcn was a desperate deed. I saw two men mar ched out at Granville and shot like two dogs for mere nothing. There will be a big time here on the 30th of May by the old soldiers of the Blue and the Gray, all in peace and harmony. God bless all the old boys of both sides. They all did what they thought was right, so let them all he one now for they haven't many more years on this earth for we will all be one in that great day to come. There will be no lines drawn there Only to see who Is good and who is bad. Let us all be one so that when the time comes for us to lay down to die. We have made peace with God and all our neighbors. I am one of the old boys who don't believe In big dinners on Sunday or on decoration day. This is set apart by our best men and all of the good people ought to hold It In ev ery respect and instead of making Sunday a picknic day every one should go to Sunday school of church or stay at home and read the Bible. .

The body was brought to this place and laid to rest in Johnson cemetery beside that of his faithful companion, who pro ceeded him to the grave by more than two years. Deceased was near 84 years of age. He moved to Texas from Putnam county. Tennessee, some fifteen years ago and spent several years in and near Munday. He was the father of nine children, eight of whom are still living, among them being Mesdames Jess and Bob Bartlett, W. D. Phy, John Flemings and C. L. Dowell. each of whom are now living in this county or have lived here. , Many families of this county were neighbors of the deceased In Tennes see befor coming to Texas. A large number of them met the train that bore the remains to this place, Monday evening, and attended the funeral. Tuesday. " Brother Javuess wa one of the most saintly men we have ever known. He had been a member of the Method ist church since early childhood and loved the church and its institutions to a degree that is seldom witnessed. In the hill country of his native Tennessee, he was known far and wide as a most zealous church worker and. his presence in a revival meeting was a great asset. A man who had known him in the old state, remarked some time past, that If it were generally known that "Uncle Malcolm" Jaquess, would be at old Mount Union Church in Putnam county, Tennessee, on a certain date, that no less than two thousand people would be there to greet him. Funeral services were held at the cemetery by Revs. A. H. Dulaney and W. C. Childress, in the presence of a large crowd including five of his child ren, a number of grand-children and many nelBQbor8 and friends of other days.
