Bell Furniture Co. Indorsed. Ed Commercial: I wish to express my most hearty endorsement of your recent editorial concerning an article which appeared In a Fulton paper re cently, which indulged in severe criti cism of one of the most popular und beloved ministers of this town Elder J. J. Castleberry. I want to say that I have known this gentleman inti mately ever since his first arrival in our town. I have been glad to have him at my home and to be associated with him in various other relations, and 1 know him to be a true, conse cYated christian, and an honest, hon orable citizen, and no minister In Union City stands higher In true esteem, confidence, and love of our people in general than Bro. Castle berry. I was a constant attendant at the Cates meetings, and 1 feel safe in say ing that no one person, layman or preacher, worked with more earnest zeal aud religious enthusiasm than did Elder Castleberry. When the writer of the article applies the terms "hypocrisy" or "ignorance" to Bro. Castleberry, he displays gross ignor ance of his theme and uncovers the real animus In the matter, which is bigotry and prejudice. : "Mkthodit Thibtt Years.".

After Trial at Fulton He ia Acquitted of Killing Charles Martin. Fulton. Ky., Aug. 16. -Bert Black ford, the young barber charged with shooting and mortally wounding Charlie Martin, another barber, Monday afternoon, was brought over from Union City yesterday and given a trial before Esquire J. T. Futrell. From the evidence it seems that Martin had threatened the life of the defendant, and when they met Martin made an effort to draw a gun and abused Blackford unmer cifully, when Blackford pulled his gun, shooting at Martin three times, only one shot taking effect, which caused Martin's death. After weighing the evidence well, the Justice declared that Blackford was justifiable in defending his own life under the laws and acquitted Black ford. The court room was filled to suf focation, both with men and women. When the Judge gave his verdict of acquittal the cheers of the crowd could be heard for half a dozen block m. - Canning Factory in Operation. The Union City Canning Co , owners of a new plant in Union City just completed, started the machinery last Saturday and canned the first installment of tomatoes. It is slid that everything works as sleek as a button. The manager, Mr. Nagle, bas a life-long expe rience with canneries, and with the gentlemen behind it who have pro moted the industry this concern is a fixture. This year the business will get a reasonably good start, and by the time another year has passed the canning industry in Obion County and Union City will flourish. People are getting tired of experimenting alone with wheat failures. They want a crop that will bring good returns. The to mato and truck business is a suc cess, and it is bound to be profitable here where the land is as rich and fertile as any that can be found in the State.

In the picture gallery of the Butte (Montana) Miner, a flourishing daily newspaper published at Butte, under the head6f "Men You Should Know," is. a perfect likeness of Wallace W. McDowell. It is a brobdingnagian head on a lillipu tian body and shows the miner holding a nugget in each hand. One of them shines like a diamond, but we presume it is only copper. Mr. McDowell is interested in sev eral copper mines in the locality of Butte. He has been operating in that country for a number of years, beginning under the direction of the great Marcus Daly, who as-, sisted him in many ways. Wallace has traveled in the principal cities of Europe and the United States selling mining stock, and the pre sumption is that he has accumu lated some of the world' wealth. Be that as it may, ' he is one of the men who boast of early training and first business lessons in Union City. It is a sort of competitive race between these former citizens to make the greatest financial achievement. Frank' Watts has built a skyscraper in Nashville and is manning one of the biggest banks there. Russell Gardner is the best advertised man in St. Louis, re puted to be a millionaire. Ferd Thomasson s banking and commer cial interests are growing like a mushroom in Hattiesburg, Miss, Will Moore, in Chicago, who was handicapped for many years ' as leader of the "400," is a coming man. Will Edwards has finally abandoned the routine of railroad business in St. Louis and is seeking larger opportunities in the opera tions of grain. Will Warterfield, in Nashville, is also interested in one of the grain industries, and bas been climbing the ladder of success. Several other erstwhile Union Cityans are aiming at the stars, and back in the old town we watch their careers with consider able interest.
