Some of tbo young gentlemen of tbia place will be asked to explain to circuit court why they are go promis cuous in their shooting at the birds that is, nuless they decide to discon tinne the business. Some of the older people of the town who appreciate the fact that if the birds were all slaughtered t'j country would soon be fairly turned over to insect pests, are tired of the business and are about ready to anneal to the court to make these youths cease their iniquitous shooting. There is absolutely no ex insn for this jirHctioe. No bird, not ,veii an Encrlish eiiarrow. does harm that outbalances the good that it does, and tr claim that birds otitfht to be killed for the damage they are alleged to do i i very foolish. ThB American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals prints in its publications article after article condemning bird slaughter, and, no doubt, the Society could be prevailed on to prosecute few casus in this place, so stop shoot ing the birds and avoid trouble. $14,000 IN PRIZES OFFERED INFORMATION WANTKD.

It doesn't pay to be spiteful with vour neighbor.

The best way snr ly is, if he won't treat you fair, to bare abiolntely nothing to do with him As the "New Idea" says "He may some day realize ttie condi tion of bis way and reform."

Morgan, of Whitweil, while here Sunday, said, "Why don't yon people fix up this beautiful spring?" and furthei said that be would be glad to assist. There was at one time a neat pagoda auJ seats, but they have gone the route of all good things. We are inclined to take up with Mr. Morgan's suggestion. Now, who is the first to help us with lumber for seats The Dresden, Tenn., Enterprise is advocating the purchase of email farms for market gardening. An ex ceptionally good idea.

La-it Snm'ay there occurred the larget wholesale boat stealing and breaking loose, lock breaking, lock picking, turning loose and carrying away that ever has been known in this part of the country. They swert the river from Griffith's Creek to An derson's Bottom, broke every boat loose, and when last seen going down the htreara they bad four boats abreast, and ten locks tbey had broken and" picked off the people's boats along the banks. The parties who fell vic tims to this wholesale larceny were Sam Layman, Jas Williams, W. H. and G. W. White. Hugh Griffith. Greeu Slatton, Fayette Williams, Charlie Shirley and a number of oth ers. Layman bad a new pair of shoes stolen which were in the boat, but he pursued the band and captured hi boat lock and shoes. Tbe guilty par ties' names will appesr in tbe News next week when W. H. White, attor ney for the state gets through with the lads I will band in n circumstance which is a miracle. Lightning struck a shad tree in R. F. White's yard yesterday evening within ten feet of the porta His wife, child and sister-in-law. An nie Coppinger, were all sitting on the porch when tbe lightning struck tbe tree. It ran down the tree, completely demolishing it, and eut into the ground. Tbe splinters of tbe tree were thrown all over tne porcu, a tdece striking Mrs. White on the shoulder A splinter lodged in Miss Coppinger's hair. R. F.White was fit- tins on tbe side nearest tbe tree. His left shoe had a small bole in it. Tbe lightuing ran down bis foot, penetrat ed into tbe bole, set bis tock a-fire and burnt two of his toes slightly before he conld remove the shoe. Robt. Franklin White is a son of v. H White, of the Third District, and 1 erandsou of the late Robt N. White. As to what iireventud this stroke of lightning from killing the whole fain ilv dead on the spot, I am nnable to state, unless the hand of the Divine Power was taking care of the family Thev were iu a solid blaze of electri citv. bnt I am so thankful to tbe Lord that he saved their lives. Not one of tbe family is hurt except tbe slight bnrns on FranKiin s toes, out win leave it to tbe reader to decide what saved the whole household. Frank Mtiri tolav be felt like tbe Hebrew children wben tbey were cast into the fierv furnace Tbey came out with garments nuscorcbed. He is the boy that lost the horse two weeks ago in tbe well. I told him that it was in keening with Scripture, bis first de struction by water and the second by tire. Tbe Baptists are holding a series of meetings this week at the First Bap tist Church at Wbitwell. Rev. Rose, of Dnnlap, and Rev Bolding, of Chat tanooga, who are very able divinert are on hand. Everybody desiring to bear the old time religion preached will do well to go out aud hear these able divines preach. The Holy Rollers 01 the sanctified brethren, are holding a three weeks meeting at tbe Gospel tabernacle, east of Whitweil. I haveu't a word to say if tbev cau convert anybody and save one soul that migbt be lost otberwise, for every soul that is saved is valued at a high price and everyone that is lost is a great destruction. 1 am slow to blacken any denomination, creed or orthodoxy that is saving that which is virtually lost. Of course they think their doctrine is right, and if tbey should tucceed to convince the world that they are right, the whole world ongbt to roll. Eliiah urayson, rroin tne victoria Ridges, was here this afternoon to consult W. H. White relative to tbe wholesale boat stealing in which he is right sharply interested. His two sons and Will Real are alleged to be the guilty parties. The boys have openly confessed their guilt. The lads are young and the cases will be adjusted Tuesday. The parents are asked to re sort to the old law, the whipping post, in tbe cases and damage replaced and they will be released by the prosecu tors on promise of good behavior. Joe Real made a flying trip to Vic toria Ridges to pee about bis son, Will, who has bden pinched by Constable Ross on a charge of larceny of boats He ought to have been looking after this lad some two years ago. The re form school is suggested as being a good place for this lad. There was a gentleman and lady stopped off here in our town the oth er day, representatives of the Salva tion army.nud did some tiptop preach ing on tbe streets and then disappear ed. Tbey were from Chattanooga. They say it's the best thing they ev er struck in all their lives. It's a glorious thing, indeed, to strike a good thing at some stage of life. We are sorry to pen the death of one of Marion County's most honored citi zens, Jasper Hackworth, who died near Cedar Springs. Mr. Hackworth has been raised here, was some 70 odd years old, and leaves a noble family behind him to mourn his loss. We tender onr sympathy to the entire family and ail their relations. This part of the country never had a better man for honesty and integrity than tbe deceased, and we always feel sad at heart to have to give up such a neighbor aud friend. When yon get a bad cae of the blues aud feel down spirited, just take a glance over to tbe T. C. I Co's office and let my friend, J. W. Norward give a nice and pleasant lecture on the history of tbe Bible and final destination of man, which he is fully able to do. aud then re port to me how you feel, and if tbe blues are not gone.
