Messrs. G. W. Dodson and II. B. Horner have moved their street grad ing and concrete paving forces from the East Main addition to Morgan street, or that portion of Morgan running from Dr. Nailling's home on Main street to Mayor Coble's residence on College street. The street has been well graded and made wider, the old fences removed and men are now en gaged laying an up-to-date concrete walk from Vine to College. These gentlemen own the old Walk er property, purchased from Mrs. W. B. Sowell, the Charlie Wells property and removed the buildings to Baptist ville, and have recently bought the eastern section of the northern half of the old Alex Brackin property. This gives the owners something like a dozen splendid residence lots facing the improved street, which we under stand will soon be placed on the mar ket. , These gentlemen are hustlers and when they say "move," the lots will have to go, and they will be more than apt to sell before the improvements are completed, as the location is ideal right in the center of the city, con venient to the Public School and the Methodist, Baptist and Cumberland Churches. Mayor Coble has recently transform ed the A. J. Corum house into a $3,500 two-story building, C. W. Miles, Jr., is completing a modern $4,500 house, both on Morgan, and it is reported no lots will be sold in. this section unless the purchaser is prepared to build a nice house. Death of Mrs. Noah.

One of the greatest tragedies or acci dents happened Saturday, the 11th inst., about 3 o'clock at the home of A. P. Lunsford. His son, Claud, was shot and instantly killed by Lexie Harris, & neighbor boy about twenty years old. Harris wanted to borrow Claud's gun. He told him he could get it. Harris then went to the house, got the gun went back to the barn where Claud was fixing feed, only one other party being present It seems. Only a few friendly words were passed between the two boys, when Harris remarked, "I am going to shoot you," raised the gun and fired. Harris'claims it was an accident, but it seems that the neighbors and family are both undecided as to whether it was an accident or done intentionally. It cer tainly is a mistake about Harris being an orphan. He is the son of Harve Harris, who lives near Caruthersville, Mo. . A. P. Litnsford. FOUND THAT AD YET?
