The about 9 years of age. ried to Kenton and buried and in a short little boy 'was He was car- by the side of his father, After the burial. of the child Dunn and wife came to Union City to notify the guardian of the child, Mr. John T. Walker of this city, of bis death, and to col lect what money he held as guar dian of the child, as the mother was the rightfnl heir to the same After having spent several days in the city in the attempt to get this I money, the Sheriff was notified of the suspicion as to the child's death, and the defendant was arrested and is held in jail here, and will betaken to Memphis for preliminary tnal. LWhat the result of this will be is awaited wite mch interest by the people of this county, as both par ties ate well known in about Ken ton, and this city, and much and strenuous objections were made by the parents of Mrs. Dunn against her marrying the defendant. Mrs. Dunn says that this arrest and" sus picion grew entirely out of the prejudice that her , people have against Mr. Dunn, and that there is no truth in the mrtf te Mr. Dunn has made no stateil '""' regard to the matter wb THEEE CENTS A PO Congressman Garrett's Bill ' to Ee- duce Bates on Rural Routes.

In the certificate Dr. Rosamond states that death was caused by cerebrospinal meningitis in it simple acute form, and elsewhere the physician giires his reasons for such diagnosis. Persons living in the house where the child died stated last night that be was a most lovable and manly boy, who had made friends of all the other occupants of the house during the tew days that be had lived there before his death.

A broth er-in-law of Mrs. Dunn. Mr. Moore, of Kenton, was in iwrmpbtt a tew days ago and quietly investigated the matter, visiting the physicians who attended the boy a bis dying moments.
