five of its members last week who are
recommended to the Governor as suit
able material for State Bank Superin
tendent. ' . , 1 .
There were five men selected by. vote,
out of which number the Governor was
to make the appointment. .The only
Republican in the list, a man from East
Tennessee, was the Governor's choice.
There was also only one regular Dem
ocrat named and that was Walter How
ell, of the Old National Bank, this city,
and we will wager a doughnut that not
another one of these men was better
suited to the place nor better qualified

iness is, no one ever thought of having
a superintendent until they found that
he was the man for it.

The many friends anil relatives of Mr.
Luther Whiteside, of Fulton, were pain
fully shocked when the sad news of his
sudden death was,flasbed over the wires
early Monday morning. His health
had been gradually failing for some
time, but no one thought the end was
so near. The writer has known him
from early infancy and can truly say
that he was a noble man. When a
mere boy his everyday life foretold the
man. He was quiet and modest almost
to timidity. He filled several worthy
posit.ons in life after graduating at Leb
anon, Tenn. He was a splendid teacher.
Many, business men of this country will
remember his untiring zeal he put forth
while teaching at Obion College, at Troy.
He also filled the position of postal
clerk for quite a while on the Illinois
Central railroad, besides other responsi
ble positions. The efficiency of his work
in different positions and his devotion
to it at all times are in a sense the meas
ure of the man. He leaves a wife and
several children besides a host of rela
tives to mourn his loss. He was buried
at Fulton last Tuesday under a wilder
ness of flowers amid a host of surviv
ing friends and relatives.
