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

Head-On Collision Near McKenzie
on N. & C.
McKenzie, Tenn., February 2. 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. The mail,.bag
gage arid express matter were scattered
all-round, him but he escaped with only
a few minor bruises.

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.

' M. 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
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
