W,!v think Mr. Rockeleiier, it ne
should come through our country with
million-dollar bottle of vermifuge,
would stop to pour any of it on our
people, for he couldn't think they were
lazy or bothered with hookworm. We
think the hookworm business is an a
hokes anyway, especially since it is
suggested that theyget in a toy's system
through the bottom of his feet. Why,
you can't drive a ten-penny nail through
the foot of a boy who has gone bare
footed all his life. We opine Mr.
Rockefeller thinks our people- are lazy
and asleep because they have let him
fleece them out of $500,000,000. When

Jesse Walker Dead.
The .announcement received here to
day of the death of Jesse Walker of
heart failure at the home of his daughter,
Mrs. D. B. Ely, in Cairo, this morning
at 6 o'clock, was received in the city
with surprise. About four weeks ago
Mr. Walker left Fulton for Cairo, and
while ho w:as ill, no one thought that
the end was so near, not even his im
mediate relatives.
Besides two sisters, Mrs. H. C. Simp
son, of this city, and Mrs. Bob Horton,
.of McGregor, Texas, and one brother,
Joe Walker., lie leaves six children, Mrs.
Ada Ross of Dukedom. Mrs. Hiram
Norman of Blodgett, Mo., Mrs. Ben
Hughes of Union City, Mrs. D. B. Ely,
of Cairo, Jesse and Ollie Walker.
Mr. Jesse Walker was marshal of
South Fulton for 23 years, and during
that time displayed &uch courage and
ability as a peace officer as to make his
services almost indispensable. He was
a terror to law breakers and a source of
protection to the citizens of South
Fulton. Mr. Walker came to Fulton
in 1872 from Hickman County, Ky. ,
where he was born m 1S50. At the age
of 13 he enlisted in the army and took
part in the war of the great rebellion, j
In religion he early developed the
habit of weighing things in the balance
of reason, discarding that which to him
did not harmonize with the Creator's
plan as he saw God's laws in the big
book Qf nature.
His convictions, whether right or
wrong, were holiest and sincere, result
ing from much careful study and analysis
on his part and with which he calmly
met the fate of all flesh. Fulton Daily
Commercial, Friday.
Farmers, Attention.
Did you ever see hogs as high as they
have boon for the last six months? Do
you look for them to be cheaper within
the next twelve? We certainly do not
look for lower prices on this stock, and
want you to look into the matter for
yourself, and there is no reason why
you should not get $5.00 per bbl. for
your corn by feeding to hogs. A num
ber of armors have made hundreds of
dollars already this year, and some in
the thousands, by handling hogs and
cattle. If you have not got the hogs
to feed, buy some. See us when you
want to buy or sell.
