Frank W. Adams ILarid ale Highwaymen. -.v. An effort was made to hold up one of the leading citizens of the vicinity east of Union City last Saturday night. Mr. Chas. Herring was riding home and on the way was "overtaken by two horse men, who undertook to stop hi m, with out success. An exchange of several shots was made, and it is said that the noise caused the horses which the high waymen were riding to run, thereby probably .saving Mr. Herring serious trouble. It is thought that Mr. Herring had been followed and watched all day Saturday, and that pursuit was made when he left town. The men under- , . ' taking, tlie work are under surveillance and may1 bo caught soon. - A Religious Debate. Beginning on Tuesday, Dec. 10, at 10 a. m.,' and continuing four days tli2ru will be a-religious discussion at McConnell, Tenn., between A. A. Jones, Missionary Baptist, of Martin, and V; H. Trice, Christian, of Union City. The design of baptism, establishment of the church, possibility of apostasy, and the work of the spirit in conversion are the issues. Since the county courts debate public roads and schools, politi cians debate- Ihe campaign issues, lawyers debate all important cases be fore they go to (he jury, Congressmen and Senators debate every issue before a vote is taken, why should it be thought "incredible" that two religious gentlemen should discuss eternal issues.
