Mr. Parks as Baffles.
While in Nashville last week L.
. Parks enjoyed the sensation of
being suspected as the celebrated

mysterious manner here now and
out of sight in a twinkling leaving
10 trace of his whereabouts. The
ast heard of Raffles in Nashville
was that be had on a blue suit. Mr.
Parks passed that way dressed in a
ue suit and the newsboys and
bootblacks began to crowd around
im. The fun lasted some time be
fore the mistake had been discov
ered. But it was a little unusual
experience for the Obion County
banker and citizen.

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.

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.
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.

Men You Should Know.
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. Tbere are others
from the county of whom we will
speak later on.
