Judge Harris Widow Protests.
Hickman, Ky., Oct. l'.t. Mrs. J. C.
Harris, widow of Judge C. Harris, of
Tiptonville, has brought suit to break
her husband's will. Judge Harris, who
was by far the .wealthiest 'man in Lake
County, was drowned in Reelfoot Lake
last spring while out with a party of
visitors. By the terms of his will Mrs.
Harris is virtually cut off from a share
in his estate and, she will ask the court
for an equitable provision for her. Judge
Harris was quite a prominent figure dur
ing the Reelfoot Lake Nightrider trou
bles, the Nightriders having threatened
to take his life, as he was a big land
holder and one of the owners of the
lake. For weeks his home at Tipton
ville was guarded.
