The company cannot proceed further without raising money to put in a io-stamp mill. Preferred stock sharing equally with common, but guaran teed 6 per cent, anyhow, is offered at 50c for each $1.00 share. A party of Memphis business men, including S. W. Tate of W. K.

Henry Reed a farmer from Bristol, Tenn. bought some souvenir postal cards while waiting for a train at union station last night. He wanted to eend them to friends he had been visiting in Illinois. After Reed had addressed the cards he asked a guide what he should do with them. "Go over there," said the guide, pointing to a mailbox in the north east corner of the main waiting room, "and drop them in a mail box." "What's a mailbox?" asked Reed "A receptacle for United States mail," said the guide. "What's a receptacle for United States mail?" asked Reed. "A mailbox," said the guide, an expression of scorn mounting his usually placid countenance. "Oh, a mailbox," said Reed. He meandered to the northeast section, but did not see the mailbox The farmer strolled around the desk of the validating agent and espied an iron safe, which was locked. "Aha," he quoth, "the mailbox He tried to open the door, but could not. Then he twisted the shiny wheel, which is the index to the combination, and was on his knees vainly trying to open the door of the safe when Patrolman Ward arrived. The union station officer had hazy dream of a sergeancy when he saw a strange man trying to open the safe. "A safe robbery under the glare of electric lights in the heart of un ion station," soliloquized Ward. "What a great headliner for the newspapers." Summoning all his courage, the patrolman boldly advanced on the kneeling inan, grabbad him by the shoulder and raised his club. "You're my prisoner," said Ward Reed scrambled to his feet, great ly astonished. "I've done nothing," he shouted. "You're trying to rob the safe, said Ward. "I'm not," said Reed. "I'm try- ng to mail some postal cards. Isn't that a receptacle for the Unit ed States mails?" Ward reluctantly released his prisoner after proper explanations had been made. TL C -, T, the Land of Big Crops 1 lit? JUUlUWl and Prosperity - Are you making as much off your farm as you ought? No doubt vou are making all you can. The trouble is the land costs too much. It takes too much money to buy a big farm, and eo yon are trying to make a living on a small farm, or perhaps you are renting one and paying a good share of what you raise, in rent. Wouldn't it be better to go where the price of good land is so little that you can own a big farm where every acre of the ground is working for you and all you raise is paying you big profits. There are thousands of acres of fer tile land in the Southwest along the line ef the Cotton Belt Route that can be bought at from $3 to flO per acre. This land is increas is in value each year. See the Southwest at Small Cost. A trip to the Southwest would convince you that your ' best interests lay in settling there. The trip can be made at very little expense. , On the first and third Tuesdays of each month you can purchase a ground-trip ticket to any point in the Southwest on or via the Cotton ,Belt Koute at very low rates. Stopovers will be allowed for you to , examine any locality you are interested in. 1 I Write at once for free copies of books , describing this wonderful fmntry and for full information about cost of tickets, etc. Address! 4i U PEELER, D.

Last week Mr. Meal Sen ter, Jr., a groceryman of Humboldt, accompanied by a contractor of that place, was here and spent a day in the different groceries, and before leaving gave the contractor an order to duplicate, fixtures and furniture, the store owned by Mr, E. P. Grissom. Last Monday Messrs. J. T. Warren, cashier of the Bank of Trenton, and nephew, Mr. James Carnes, were here "see ing how to build a grocery." Mr. Carnes will embark in business in Memphis, and the Grissom store will be reproduced in that city The visitors were very much im pressed with the appearance of the Reynolds store, the Williams & Skinner business and several oth ers, but as the Grissom building is about the size and shape of the ones to be used, Mr. Grissom's ar rangement of things seemed to suit them best. The stores certainly are beauties and they are all well patronized. John L.

Nice Stores. For years and years the big de partment stores of Union City have been complimented and admired by citizens of nearby towns and visit ors from the larger , cities, and the enormous stocks carried have kept the town well to the front in the wholesale markets as well as in the minds of the retail trade for miles and miles around. During the past few years the groceries and market nouses nave forged to the top and today the city boasts of the best, neatest, clean est, prettiest groceries in the entire state, and nearly every week mer chants from other sections come here for no other purpose than to visit the stores, and get new ideas for use in improving and beautify- ng their places of business at Double Murder. Chattanooga, Tenn., Sept. 9 With their throats cut from ear to ear, Kosa House, a negress, and ner paramour, Jim Koberts, were found in pools of their blood in a room over the saloon of Rush Phil- ps, 633 East Ninth street, shortly before 6 o'clock this morning. The deed had evidently been done by some one who gained an en trance into the room while the pair were asleep, as the wounds were of such nature as to exclude the theory that they were self-inflicted. The ghastly find was made by J. Ezell, Emma Scott and King Peak, three negroes who roomed in the same house. Their attention was called by a flow of blood under neath the door of the room. The door was tried by the men, but was found locked. It was then broken open and the bodv of the man was found near the door. His dead was almost severed from the body. The wom,p was found lying across the bed with a deep gash extending al most entirely around the base of the neck. The supposition of the police is that the deed was committed by Larkins House, the husband ot the dead woman. The pair had separ ated about three weeks ago after living together for over a year, The police department at present naa no evidence to connect mm with the crime other than that the woman had said on a number of oc caslons that her husband had told her that he would kill her rather than see her live with any other man.
