Moses Scott Marshall was born in Smith County, Tenn., March 4, 1832 He was left an orphan in early child hood to fight life's battles alone. When 17 "years of age he removed to West Tennessee, and being a poor boy with out means or friends he hired out as a common laborer. At the age of twenty years he was united in marriage to Miss Mary E. Cloar, daughter of John Cloar, in Third District of Obion County, Tenn. This family was noted for its great moral worth and strong traits of character. To this union were born 12 children. Of those who remain to mourn their loss & his wife, who has stood faithfully by him in all the walks of life for about 57 years. Six sons and three daughters, all grown, are settled in life and well provided for. Being deprived of early opportunities his education was limited and doubtless greatly handicapped him in his life work, but being possessed of great nat ural abilities he soon demonstrated -his moral worth and became a leader in his community in all enterprises, public or private, that were calculated to build up his country. In early life he professed religion and joined Beelfoot Baptist Church, was or dained deacon and was its acknowledged leader in benevolence, prayer and song for more than fifty years. The church looked to him, feeling that they were safe in his councils. He was a faithful attendant, adding inspiration to the worship, but for more than a year he had not been able to attend the house of worship but one time and then he stood up and testified of the Spirit's presence with him. Surely he was a great man. As a citizen he could not be excelled. . He was for every move ment that was calculated to build up fi nancially and morally. He was never a candidate for office, but took a great interest in politics, wanting the best men elected to office. As a husband and father he was greatly devoted to his family, and had expended quite a small fortune in educating and training his children for future usefulness. Mr. Marshall died Jan. 31, 1909, af ter more than a year's constant yet pa tient suffering with an incurable, dis ease, and was buried at the family burying ground near Clayton Feb. 1 with Masonic honors. The funeral serv ices were conducted by Revs. C. P. Glover, G. H. Stigler and Hon. J. H. McDowell.

The fruit buds have been examined and it is re ported the fruit is still uninjured. The untimely warm spell that threatened to so develop the buds as to insure their destruction was succeeded by a cold snap, which put a stop to further devel opment, and if nothing further happens there will be a good fruit crop here this year. It is not thought the bloom will be as heavy, as many of the smaller spurs were killed by the extremely dry weather last fall. Warning Notice.
