The Manitou Comedy Co. Draws Big Crowd at the Marlowe. , To a house thaj was packed to its ut most capacity the Manitou Comedy Company made its initial appearance last evening at the Marlowe. This com pany is what is really called clever, every one of the principals being high class and finished. The absence of the blood and thunder climaxes usually used by repertoire companies to gain ap plause, but rest upon the appreciation of good acting to draw their encores, which was accorded them in tremend ous quantities last evening. Special mention is due Mr. ; Robert Bristow, , who appears in the leading role. His work was the best seen here in some time. The other members of this splendid little company wer? also good, and taken as a whole the Manitou Company can be classed as a "winner." To-night they will present "A Fight ing Chance," a strong Canadian drama, considered the main bill of their repertoire.-1-Jackson Whig.

A head-on collision between passenger train No. 53, due from Memphis in Nashvillo at 7 a. m. , on the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway, and extra freight No. 184, oecured one mile east of tljis place at 1.25 o'clock this morning, but there was no loss of life, and only a few of the passengers and train crews received injuries, . none be ing fatally hurt. . The two engines were locked into each other, and but for the fact that the engineers and ! firemen of both trains jumped, they would . all have been killed. The engines were demolished and the mail and express and baggage cars were telescoped and wrecked, .and the mail clerk's life was saved by the fact that he had just a few minutes before ' the collision - walked into the day coach. The: escape of Baggage Agent Roach can . only be explained as miraculous. He w as in the back end of his car wher the impact oecured.

ONI Conductor Warner and Engineer Tracey and the passenger Conductor Courtlier and Engineer Gallagher. In jumping from their cabs Engineer Tracey's nose was broken, he being the worst injured. The others escaped with a few bruises. The trains were both running at a speed of about thirty-five miles an hour. The freight had orders to pass the passenger-train at McKenzie and was run ning to make this point. The cause of the accident was the failure of the agent at McKenzie to deliver the passing or ders to the passenger train. The trains met on a curve, and it is miraculous that none of the passengers were killed. Two ladies whose names could not be learned were bruised by being thrown from their seats, and all the passengers were greatly shaken up. The passen gers on the Dixie Flyer from St. Louis were transferred at the scene of the wreck and sent on to Nashville, arriv ing about on time. The wreckiug crews, includidg one with Capt. J. T. Perkins, of Martin, cleared the track in a few hours and the trains are now on schedule time. Walters sells for cash only after Feb. 1.

S. Marshall. Moses Scott Marshall, a well known citizen, man of affairs and influence, died at his home in Civil District Num ber Three of Obion County on Sunday, Jan. 31, 1909, at 1 o'clock p. m. Mr. Marshall had been afflicted with cancer of the face for several years. Latterly he was confined at homo for year and to his room about six months, finally succumbing to the inroads of the disease. Deceased was born in Trousdale Coun ty near Hartsville March 4, 1832. He was therefore nearly 77 years of age. At the age of 6 his parents died and at 16 he ventured westward to seek a home. Reaching West Tennessee he proceeded through the country, halting at the farm of John Cloar in the Third Dis trict. There he found a home and ap plied his industry to farming. In the home of Mr. Cloar was a daughter whom he learned to esteem with affec tionate regard. Inhis twentieth year he was married to Miss Mary Cloar and together they immediately began to plant the hearthstone of marital do mesticity, where the old homestead now stands and where the life of the good man spent its career. In these early years the pioneer citizen was brought to a saving knowledge of the Christian faith and afterwards was one of the founders of the Reelfoot Baptist Church, where the family worshiped continu ously. The family increased with the birth of twelve children, nine living at pres ent, among whom Dr. T. E. Marshall and Tink Marshall, of this city, and Mrs. John Caldwell, of Prescott, Ark., are well known to the immediate vicin ity of Union City. J Mr. Marshall was a Royal Arch Ma son and Worthy Master of Tyre Lodge, conducting and conferring degrees upon numbers of his fellow citizens and offici ating at the graves of departed brothers through a period of probably thirty years, lie was never a candidate for office, but served his district as Demo cratic executive committeeman in the most satisfactory manner for some years. In 1902 Mr. and Mrs. Marshall cele brated the fiftieth anniversary of their marriage a golden wedding the occa sion for a large gathering of relatives and friends, social festivities and feast ing. It wasa glad day and many happy hearts joined in mutual greetings, in veneration and in lasting good will to the esteemed host and hostess. Six years more and death separates the ties. Uncle Mose, as he was well known, lived a conscientious, useful citizen, a christian, a good neighlxjr, a loving husband and father, a kind friend. Ho was a leader in church and public affairs, dispensing with a generous hand and administering in a charitable spirit. In after years the family began to disperse, leaving almost solitary and alone the aged couple. They clung to the old vine and rooftree and traveled serenely down the declivity of time, the. western sun shedding its mellow light upon them. Passing over the river the golden li trie was severed, as the vener able citizen, conscious to the last, bade. farewell to his faithful companion and loved ones, resting in the peaceful as surance of a reunion in the Kingdom on High. Services were held at the residence, conducted by Dr. C. P. Glover and Rev. G. H. Stigler and the remains were in terred with Masonic honors at the Cloar Cemetery. Real Estate Transfers. L. O.
