" C P. Church Lands.
Waverly, Tenn., July 12. A special
term of the Chancery Court was held
in Waverly to try the case of W. B.
Ridings, receiver, vs. jthe Bowen Chapel
congregation of the C. P. Church et al.
This is a somewhat noted . case, involv
ing the church lands and a lot of rents
therefrom of the Bowen Chapel Church
in the Third Civil District of Humph
reys County. It will be recalled that a
short time before his death, Uncle Berry
Bowen and his wife conveyed some
eighty or ninety acres of Duck River
bottom lands to said Chapel C. P.
Church, or rather to the ruling elders,
etc., for the benefit of the church, with
a proviso that if the church should cease
to exist at that place that the same
should go to the Cumberland University
for the benefit of its theological depart
ment, etc. When the case of Hudgins
vs. Landrith was pending a petition was Upon a Western tale I'll try

will be in need of work in my line, such as Monuments, Cem

some very handsome contracts that will reauire mv nersonal

are in need of anything in the above fines, that you call around
at the shop or let me know and I will call on you and submit
you designs and prices, which I feel sure will be of interest to
you. My shop is located on Second street, back of Naillinfr-
Keiser Hardware Co.'s store, and my display and samde room
is now undergoing some repairs, which will make it attractive
and convenient for those who desire work to come and look
over my designs and work that I now have on hand and that I
have already put up. I would be glad to have vou visit at
once, as I have some very handsome designs ; ready, to go out

filed therein bringing this church prop
erty in that case, and complainant, W.
B. Ridings, was appointed receiver to
take charge of these lands and rent
them out and hold the rents, which he
did. When that case was decided in
the Supreme Court of the State, it was
held that the Chancellor bad no juris
diction in any matter save the property
at Fayetteville, hence that case went off
without any directions as to the dispo
sition of the rents and property in this
case, and while holding in favor of the
C. P. faction in that particular case,
made no orders or disposition or hold
ing as to Bowen 's Chapel property.
In this situation, the C. P. faction of
the church was claiming the lands and
rents, the Presbyterian Church; U. S.
A., claimed it and Cumberland Univer
sity set up a contention claim to it on
the grounds of a statutory inhibition
against any unincorporated church
holding directly more than five acres of
land, etc. In the midst of all these
contentions Complainant Hidings filed
this bill, making all the claimants .par
ties, paying the funds into the court and
asking that all claimants interplead and
litigate among themselves the various
claims set up by each ; the bill was by
the court sustained as a bill of inter
pleader and issues made up, proof taken
and heard by the Chancellor last week
he taking the case under advisement,
and will render a decision in it later on.
Local counsel in the case were: J. F.
Shannon for Complainant Ridings; H.
Carter for Bowen 's Chapel C. P.
Church, with Judge Caldwell assisting;
E. Tubb for the Presbyterian Church
U. S. A., with Judge Gaut assisting,
and B. It. Thomas for Cumberland Un
iversity. Only local counsel, however,
participated in the trial of the cause be

styles among the fashionable contingent.
Blouses of plain net or batiste very
much tucked, but without any other
trimming than the ubiquitous side frill,
are better style than anything more
elaborate. Elaboration is so overdone
on cheap waists that fastidious dressers
will have none of it.
The "Coronation Suit," as a New
York maker has called it, of oyster
white ramie linen, in plain tailor style,
with narrow rolling collar of purple
velvet, and buttons of the same velvet
with gilt rims, is smartly worn, and an
odd coat that comes well below the hips
and buttons at the waist in cross-over
fashion has little more shaping than the
tube Bkirt that goes with it and is being
worn by the younger girls and by ma
trons. Simple style and lines being
adapted to both ages, better than lines
that reveal the figure.
