As we stated before there are about 65,000 acres of land, nearly all of which has been covered from time to time with water and over flow from Iieelfoot Lake. In me dium water the Jake is approxi mately 25 miles in length and in width varies from one to eight I Y.lt Ala it 1 mues. it is run or islands, cy press knees and deadenings. The channel of Iieelfoot Creek courses through the main body of the lake, and for as many years it has been noted as a hunting and fishing re sort, abounding in all kinds of game. It is estimated that 10,- 000,000 pounds of fish are taken from the lake every year for sale and shipment, and ducks ha ve been known there in flocks covering the face of the water for hundreds of yards. '.-. Fish and game are still abun dant, and we are informed that it is the purpose of the West Ten nessee Land Company to build a modern, luxurious and commo dious clubhouse at Shaw's park, plans of which are now being formulated, and later on to make it a summer resort, with shoot the chutes, roller coasters, tunnel rail ways, merry-go-rounds, music and other like attractions. The sub ject of gravel or suburban roads has also been mentioned, but it re mains to be seen what the future will bring forth. It may be said, however, that some great improve ments will be made, and that there is no question that the property surrounding Reelfoot Lake will be greatly developed at no distant lay.

My fellow countrymeD, it has been said, and it is strictly true, that "Man's inhumanity to man makes countless thousands mourn." The jjcldca rule still lives "Do to everyone aa you would that they should do to you." "Thou shalt not kill," and it is also said by the Master of all that it is far better that ninety-nine guilty ones escape than that one innocent one should perish. ' j . l am making this appeal to the public in behalf of Lee Holder, said Holder having been sentenced to die by the courts. The verdict was sustained entirely on circum stantial evidence. 1 do desire that those who read this will reflect and take it home to themselves. He is a youth. We have all been youths and are aware that youth does things that mature manhood would not think of doing. You may say it's clear that he is guilty of the crime. So thought the jury that hanged the innocent young man in California for the supposed killing of the two young women in a church steeple. Time and confession proved him innocent. The victims were slain by their preacher, so the papers say. Give a criminal a life sentence in prison in case of circumstantial evidence, but for the sake of humanity and your own conscience don't kill, for you can't tell what may at an early date develop. " It is not the wish or desire of any of the signers of these peti tions that the said Holder should be released. But place him where he can't harm humanity, and there let him remain the balance of his natural life. It's really a greater punishment than death, but gives time and opportunity for him to prepare for an after life. ' :, - Friends, just think for a mo ment what his mother has under gone and is undergoing. II us band murdered, one son in State's prison ana another condemned to the gallows. Take the matter home to yourself and think, think! Now to persons who have peti tions in different parts of the coun ty, be up and doing, and know when you are working in behalf of humanity that you are in the service of the Master. He said that charity is the greatest gift be stowed on man and outweighs them all. W. A skins. Seats on sale now at Wallace Moore's lor J. A. Coburn's Greater Minstrel."

There are within the bends of the Synod 192 congregations, 82 of these being represented by ministers and elders and the remainder ot them were reported in an organic and work ing order.

The work of missions was emphasized in the deliberations of the body and ad vanced steps were taken for the next year's work. The report on temperance was cm- , phatic and strong against the liquor traffic and heartily endorsed the work of the W. C. T. U. and of the Anti-Saloon League of the State. The Synod pledged itself to the sup port of all temperance legislation, both State and National. In the report on Education the interest centered around Iiethel College of the Cumberland Presby terian Church located at McKenzfe. The Board of Trustees of this College reported that at the present they are maintaining a splendid school in a rented hall. The facul ty of this school is said to be unsur passed by no school of similar class, while the work being done is the very best. A collection of $540 was raised for the school. Several members of the Board of Trustees and the PreBidtnt of the school were present and gave splendid ad dresses. - ' The Synod adjourned Thursday afternoon with an old-time hand shake and prayer.-Milan Exchange Marriages.
