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.
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. .
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.

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
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
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.

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.

to get a little practice and got licked

To the Votres of Putnam County:
Four years ago I made the race for
the office of Register of Putnam county
and the people elected me. I took the
the oah of office with the firm resolve
that I would do my best to make he
bes Register Putnam county ever had.
How well I have lived up to this re
solve is for the people to say. For
nearly four years I have served the
people to the best of my ability, with
out partiality, but always trying to be
courteous and to show my appreciaion
to every one. Since I have been In the
office my rule has been to make every-
Doay welcome, wnether In the office on
business or to spend a little time rest-
ng and passing the pleasantries of the
day. I have ried hard to keep well
posted about the affairs and business
connected with my office and at all
times to be ready and willing to do ev
erything r could to accommodate ev-
ry one wanting information about any
and all things connected with it. r
have pursued this course, first, because
i Deiieve it the duty of every public of
ficial to do everything he can to ac
commodate the public, an dsecond. be-
cause I wanted to show my apprecia
tion ior tne office to which the neonle
elected me. My work for the pa t
four years will soon be of record to
speak for Uself. and feelinsr and b
iievrag tnat I have done my duty, I am
asKing tne people to elect me for the
second term. If I have made a good
Reg'-iter In the past, four years. I feel
that I can make a still better one the
next four years, and it is upon my rec
ord that I ask the support of 'all the
people for a second term.
They elected me four years asro.
when I was untried, and I hope I have
lost no friends. In fact I feel that I
have made many new ones, and I am
asking for this second term, and trust
the voters of Putnam county will show
heir appreciation and confidence in me
and my work by again voting for me.
I have and now desire to express my
sincere gratitude and thanks for the
confidence the people have heretofore
placed in me and want to say that I
bel'eve no man ever lived who appreci
ates a friend and a favor more than
Norman Massa.
I hope to see every voter before Aug
ust 6th, the day of the election, and
crsonally put my case before them, but
If for any cause I fail to do so, I ear
nestly solicit the help and support of
every one. I am,
Sincerely yours to serve, '
months yet. Hurry and get ready
you and that sweet babe and go with
us, for I know you want to see Charlie.
Cousin Jim Veteto I wish I could
come up to your house and eat some
more honey and play with the girls.

After a long delay I will drop a few
lines to all of the readers of your nice
little paper, which I am always glad
to get every Monday. 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.

home of his son, Robert Jaquess, near
Cha'tanooga, Oklahoma. The body

of his faithful companion, who pro
ceeded him to the grave by more than
two years.

He moved to Texas from Putnam

near Munday. He was the father of
nine children, eight of whom are still

number of them met the train that
bore the remains to this place, Monday
evening, and attended the funeral.

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
