As a result of a family row of five weeks' standing, Floyd W'ortman, aged 27, shot and killed Doff Claudie, aged 0, second husband of Wortman's mother-in-law, at the latter'a home, two miles from here, Bun day afternoon. Wortman surrendered to the author ities after the killing, but was quickly released when a coroner's jury found that he acted in self-defense. Claudie attacked him with a knife, and after a desperate fight, Wortman succeeded in grabbing a shotgun, which he used with deadly effect. Claudie married Wortman's mother-in-law five weeks ago, and several quar rels took place between him and Wort man over family matters. It is said that.on occasions Claudie threatened to kill the younger man. The quarrels were patched up, according to general belief.

This latter caused almost instant death, as several of the shot pierced the heart. Doth men are farmers and were wide ly known throughout this section. FOR SALE OR RENT.

One of the most remarkable occasions in the history of Gibson County has closed, the reunion of the Wade clan. From practically every county in West Ten nessee and, from many other sections of the State, from North, South, East and West, from foreign countries and from Arkansas, came hundreds of the kith and kin of this family gathered to celebrate in one grand family reunion. The event was promoted by II. II. Wade, "Uncle Dick," and was held at the Gibson County fair grounds. The large amphitheatre was divided into sections and each decorated with the colors of that branch which was to oe cupy it. During the latter years of the eighteenth century William Wade moved into Tennessee from Maryland He was the father of five daughters and eight sons. Of these thirteen children twelve reared families, the greatemum- ber settling in this county. There were ten of these families represented at this reunion, and about 1,000 persons. Saturday Morning Fire. The business houses on Washington avenue owned by S. T. Wade and R. J. Barnett and occupied by Raiuey's gro cery store and Mays' restaurant, respwH ively, were destroyed by fire last Satur day morning, the fire breaking out in the rear of Mays' restaurant just before daylight. The restaurant and the build ing were a total wreck. Everything in the grocery store was damaged, either by fire or water. The stock of grocer ies was insured for $2,000, which re duces the loss to Mr. Rainey to a con siderable extent. The restaurant was insured for $S00 and the buildings for $2,330 each. Mr. Rainey has moved the remnant of his stock to T. R. Bar rett's jewelry store, and will remain there until a new house is built on the old site, which will be done as soon as possible. ... Both houses, it is understood, w ill be rebuilt at once, and Mr. Rainey, who has been doing a very extensive and profitable grocery business, will occupy his same old stand. It was a very disastrous fire, gaining considerable headway before discovered and the signal turned in. Baseball. Porter's Tuffs won three a,mes from Union City hand running this week.
