S. Scores 11 to
Last Saturday night the Train
ing- School boys went down to Tren
ton and scalped Fitzgerald in a moet
interesting ball game of the season.
The score was 11 to 1 in famr of
U. C. T. S.
Sherrill pitched great ball tor the
spectators. His arm was in excel
lent condition for the game and he
succeeded in disappointing many of
Fitzgerald's heavy sluggers. Only
two hits were made off ot him which
happened about the first of the
sixth inning and the opposing team
ran in one score. The Training
School boys began to do business in
the last part of the sixth. Some
one led off with the hitting id
everybody followed bis example.
Fitzgerald's pitcher was swatted all
over the field. He was swatted out
of the box and another took his
place. Everybody hit him too. It
was plain that U. C. T. S. had it in
for Fitzgerald and by the time the
ninth inning . had come around
Fitzgerald was down and out.
Crockett made a great hit on first.
as well as many at the bat. With
Johnson behind the bat and Calla
han on second, the opposing, side
found it dangerous to stay too far
from first. Briggs held third with
equal advantage. Hale, the can't-
be-beat, worked in the rifle pit, exe
cuted his labor with the desired ef
fect, and with a rapidity which vap
palled the spectators. Out-fielders
Jones, Palmer and WaddelLwere on
their toes during the game and
starred many times.

We desire to call attention of
mothers the wish of "Our W. C. T.
U. ladies to perfect an organization
of .the Loyal Temperance Legion
known as the L. T. L ' We wish to
state this is like the W. C. T. U.
undenominational. It is through
the kindness of the pastor and mem
bers of the Baptist congregation,
that we hold our meetings at. pres
ent in their church. This organi
zation tills the place with the ctiil
dren along temperance lines, that
the children and young people's so
cietles fill in the churches. Uewish
the parents to know we do not in
tend to mislead the children, but
train and educate them in total ab
stinence. This means much to the
future temperance characters of
children just as the Sunday Schools
and religious societies.rruean to their
religious lives. We herewith give
the L. T. L. pledge, Trusting in
God's help, I solemnly promise to
abstain from the use of alcoholic
drinks, including wine, beer and
cider, from the use of tobacco in anv
form and from profanity; and to en-
deaver to put down indecent lan
guage and all coarse jests, and to
use every means to fulfill the com
mand, "keep thyself pure."
This may seem to be a very strong
pledge, which in fact it is, and if
practiced and taught in every home
we would have no bad boys or bad
men. Mothers, give us your sup:
port and help in the effort of chris
tian women to do a great work.
Warning to Fish Dealers.
The situation with the Reelfoot
Lake Nifht Riders, becomes more
interesting daily and this town is
considerably wrought up over the
situation. Mr. J. C Burdick re
ceived a letter from the Night
Riders that he must' close up
his fish business in this city and
that he had but a short time
to do so. They also went to
the agent of Judge Harris, who
lives bctsreen this place and the
lake, and required him to deliver
up to them all notes and other
papers and contracts in his posses
sion between Harris and his several
tenants, and these they burned.
A latter report reached here to
the effect that the negro farm hands
inLake County had been warned to
leave and that they had all been
frightened away from their work.'
The following is an exaet copy of
the notice sent to Mr. Burdick.
Office of Justice Br order Post:
You must close p that fish busi
ness, never to be opened a train, urr
aer penalty pt death, hell and the
grave. If you think this is a joke
try it aew days longer and see.

Mr. Murray and a pair of mules in
the barn' belonging to J. M. Chil

night at about 11 o'clock.
The fire was supposed to be of
incendiary origin, and the dogs of
W. Simpson, which have done
such effective work in this section,
were put tn the trail at 3 o'clock,
and by 4 o'clock they had trailed
and bayed a party. No arrests have
been made as yet, as the party has
always hitherto borne a good reputation.
The property destroyed by the
fire was worth about $1,500. Mr.
Murray had hia barn burned at this

"Somebody has got to lick Japan,
and I am very much afraid that the
unpleasant duty will fall upon us,"
said Representative Hayes, of Califor
nia today, after a visit to the White
House. He continued: "Unless she is
licked, and well licked, there'll be no
living with her in the world.
"Who do you suppose is In Japan's
eye while all this preparation is going
on in her shipyards and gunshops?
What nation is she spending $100,000,
000 a year to war with? It is the
United States of America, and there's
no use trying to fool ourselves into be
lieving anything else.
"She has licked Russia off the' face

There Is only one other power that she
could declare war upon, In the natural
course of events, and the natural trend
of the international game, and that is
the United States.
"We are bound to be called upon to
fight Japan, and the sooner we get
ready to do it and tike sooner we quit
trying to cos vises -vurselves that
Japan is friendly, the better it will be
for us and the rest of the world.".
