The Cooper Trial. - Nashville, Tenn., Jan. 20. With the stage set for tlie Cooper murder trial, the witnesses present and the prospect ive jurors summoned, it became known this morning that the State had pre pared a surprise for the defense by hav--ing the body of Carniack exhumed and an autopsy held. After the murder, and in the excite ment attendant upon the crime, the State neglected to order a postniorteliii It is essential in the trial that the direc tion from which the bullets came shall be determined. The Slate's theory" n that Carniack, with his hat raised to greet a lady, was shot from behind. The defense asserts that he find the first shot. It seems, however, that some time between the date of the kill ing and the present time, the State se cretly and at night exhumed the body of tlie slain editor and caused a careful postmortem to be performed.. Tlie course of the bullets thus was deter mined and the State claims to have proof that the bullet which killed Car- mack entered his neck from behind. - The defense does not claim that Col Cooper fired the shots. It maintains that young Cooper, believing his fath er's life was in danger, fired upon Car- mack to protect his sire. And it is not contended that young Cooper stood any place but behind. Both sides announced a readiness to proceed, and Judge Hart ordered the panel sworn. Chancellor Kirkland's Visit. On Wednesday morning, Jan. 20, students of the Training School were held for almost an hour in rapt atten tion by the address of Chancellor Jas. H. Kirkland, of Vanderbilt University. We are always glad to have with us dis tinguished teachers. It brings us into closer touch with the outside world. It gives instruction that is surely profit able. Especially are we delighted when so distinguished a gentleman as Van derbilt's head conies to us with interest and enthusiasm from the great Univer sity.' Dr. Kirkland stands practically at the head of the great educators of our Southland, Not long ago Dr. Moore, Dean of the Academic Department of Vanderbilt, was a visitor in our halls, and the com ing of the Chancellor, with promises of many returns, indicates the favor and interest that is coming . to us from the great seat of learning. Dr. Kirkland went directly from our school to visit our Public School. From there he left for the Lake, in company with another of tlie Vanderbilt profess ors. ' We are indeed glad to have had the Chancellor with us on Wednesday. The Training School. You Need Insurance YOU Fire, Life, Tornado, Rent, Accident, Tourists or Live Stock Insurance buy now.
