State-Supplied Life Insurance.
The State of Wisconsin has gone into
the life insurance business. In other
words, Wisconsin will insure the lives
of its normal, healthy citizens in much
the same way that the average life insur
ance company will assume such risks.
The clerks and treasurers in all coun
ties, cities and toWns, the State banks
and the factory inspectors are insurance
agents. This law makes it their duty
to receive applications and remit the
premium. But they get no extra sal
ary therefor. The State will write no
policy in excess of .fll.OOO, but it will
write policies for $500 and permit the
insured to pay yearly, semi-yearly,
quarterly or monthly. The policyhold
er may be his own collector if he so de
sires and the State will allow him 1 per
cent, for sending in his premium. The
State issues policies on the ordinary life
plan, the ten-year endowment plan and
endowment at the age of G5. It also
deals to some extent in "term" insur
ance and sells annuities by which a per
son can pay a certain amount at certain
periods before he reaches the age of 50
and then draw a yearly "old age pen
sion" after he passes 60.
Wisconsin is the first State in the I
Union to enter upon the life insurance
business and is doing so under the pro
visions of a law which was passed by
the Stato Legislature about a year ago.
The Wisconsin officials believe they have
devised a practical scheme which will
be of advantage.iu providing insurance
for those who need it most. That, in
fact, is the main object of the departure
since the State is not striving for any
spectacular accomplishments as is the
case with- many of the insurance com
panies. It will not be possible to buy
flyers" or to take out million-dollar
policies, for Wisconsin is not looking
for customers who engage in enterprises
of that kind. Courier-Journal.

Blown Seventy-Five Feet.
Columbia, Tenn., Nov. 1. William
Thomas, aged 30, who has for several
years operated the rock crusher and
quarry of W. P. Ridley, one mile from
Columbia, on the Mount; Pleasant Turn
pike, was killed Thursday afternoon
about 4:f0 o'clock by the explosion of
about a half box of dynamite. Thomas
went to the tool chest where the ex
plosives were kept -and it is supposed
that he dropped some tools on a cap,
exploding the whole box of explosives.
Both his legs, one arm and one hand
were completely blown away and have
not been found. His body was found
about seventy-five feet from where the
accident occurred blowti up against a
rock wall. His face was not disfigured
in any way. Thomas lived a few min
utes after the occurrence. His funeral
will take place this afternoon at the res
idence of his father on the Mount Pleas
ant Turnpike.
Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot reach the
diseased portion of the ear. There is only one
way to cure deafness, and that is by constitu
tional remedies. Deafness is caused by an in
named condition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hear
ing, and when it is entirely closed Deafness is
the result, and unless the inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored to its normal
condition, heariug will be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condition of
the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case
of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be
cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure, Send for circulars

Revelation Through the Word.
The American Harvester Trust has
igunts in Europe and Asia teaching na
tives the use of American farm machin
ery uy use ot moving pictures. Utlier
large industrial institutions are also
making use of moving pictures to teach
foreign people about modern manufac
tures and to introduce them. It is a
quick and easy way to teach, and also
effective, for one can perceive through
the eyes without labored mental pro
cess, and one comprehends more by see
ing a thing than he does by hearing
about it.
Stand at a distance from a large as
sembly of devout worshippers, so far
that not even a word is heard. The
very acts of worship will have a mean
ing. The vast assembly kneeling in
prayer, the priest with his hands out
stretched and his face turned toward
heaven, alone bring a sense of rever
ence and holiness. It is like a moving
picture in which the acts themselves are
seen. Think likewise of the entire wor
ship of the Jews as set forth in the
Word. It was Divinely provided that
every act should be representative of
something holy, and therefore through
that worship something of holiness in
flowed. Though for the most part the i
ceremonies of that worship were brought
to an end by the Lord, nevertheless be
cause the worship was representative,
the historical in the Word that describe
it contain holiness from the Lord and
holiness inflows by means of the histori
cal. Take as a unit Israel's history as
the chosen people, freed -from Egypt,
led through the wilderness, and at last
established in the promised land with
plenty and peace. In their nidst was
the Ark of the Covenant, a ';hest con
taining the commandments. When they
journeyed, the Ark was taken up, and
Moses said, "Let thine enemies be scat
tered." And when it rested, he said,
"Return, O Lord, unto the many thou
sands of Israel." See this in its repre
sentative character and it will be like a
moving picture, revealing the laws of
salvation, the way to heaven, and the
attainment of etewial life. The com
mandments in the Ark protected from
defilement are the commands of the
Lord kept pure in the heart. Through
keeping them in spirit all enemies of
man's peace are scattered, and he is led
on in spiritual victories until. finally he
is established in spiritual peace and

So many readers of this paper know
and appreciate the names of the brave
Confederates of this county, who played
such an important part in war days that
it is only right for this reporter to cor-
red two mistakes made in last week's
issue of this paper in reference to those
days and names.
In regard to the gun left to theLeon
idas Polk Chapter by Captain Hiram
Harris, of Mississippi, this was a clause
in the latter Confederate's will. Captain
Harris, who had been commissioned to
this county by Governor Harris, two
years after the war, to defend our peo
ple against two Berry outlaws, received
across of honor from the Leonidas Polk
Chapter, some time before his death,
for his services in the county. He was
loved and venerated by the people of
Obion County, and before his death,
his daughter's husband, Dr. Charles
Tisdale, was asked to send this gun,
captured from the desperado Berry him
self, to the chapter of the county.
The name of Maddox was used in the
report of the electing of officers at the
second meeting of the Southern His
torical Association at Mayor Coble's
home last week. The' name should
have been Matlock. Mr. Thillip Mat
lock, of Mason Hall, one of the best
known Confederates in the county, was
the association officer to whom reference
was made.
