The Jackson Picnic.
The Union City Sunday schools en
joyed another annual picnic at Jackson
in Highland Park. The special and the
regular morning train carried down
about fourteen coaches full of Union
City and neighborhood people. S. D.
Woosley was in charge, assisted by Mr,
Quinn and Mr. Allen, of the M. & O.
R. R. Co. The special arrived in Jack
son about 10:45 a. m. and a committee
of ladies and gentlemen, with Mr. Wis
dom on behalf of the city of Jackson,
and Mrs. W. F. Barry, representing the
various ladies' organizations, made them
welcome. The street cars and taxis
took the crowd to the park, where they
scattered in boating, skating and sun
dry games. Some of the crowd saw the
Martin-Jackson baseball game in the
afternoon. The basket dinner was
abundant and wholesome and the day
was full of good humor and good or
der. Everything was perfect, as always
it is when Mr. Woosley has charge.
The special left Jackson at 5:45 and
arrived home with its cargo safe and

Tragedy at Trenton Monday Even-
ing on Depot Platform.
Trenton, Tenn., Aug. 11. Hon. W.
S. Coulter, 55 years old, and his son,
Harry Coulter, about 23 years old, of
Dyer, were both shot and instantly
killed here this afternoon by J. A. Al-
ford, hardware merchant of Rutherford.
The killing occurred at the Mobile &
Ohio depot as the Coulters were about
to board the north- bound afternoon
train for their home, a few miles north
of here, in Dyer. The affair is greatly
deplored by the friends of both the
Coulter and the Alford families, and U
the outcome of a series of family trou
bles extending over a number of months.
The Coulters are well known and prom
inent citizens of the county, as are the
Alfords. W, S, Coulter was considered
to be one of the leading members of the
Gibson County bar, and his son, Harry,
was likewise fast making a record of
being a highly talented young lawyer.
Mr. Coulter, Sr., was possibly one of
the wealthiest citizens in the county. '
The morning train from the north
brought a large crowd of people from
the upper sections of this county to at
tend the present term of the Circuit
Court here. With this crowd came the
two Coulters and J. A. Alford. There
was no intimation of any trouble until
this afternoon. The "dinky" from the
north came into the station. - Alford,
who had evidently left on the south
bound train, arriving some thirty min
utes before, and had boarded the north
bound train at Fruitland, a few miles
south of Trenton, stepped off with oth
er passengers, and in a few moments
began to empty an automatic pistol at
the father.
Upon his falling to the ground, Alford
turned and directed his fire at the young
man, who was in the act of climbing
into a day coach. Having shot the
young man down, he turned and fired
a last shot into the prostrate form of
the older man, and then calmly replaced
his weapon in his hip pocket. There
were nine shots fired, seven taking ef
fect; three of them struck the young
man and four the older one. All shots
completely pierced the body of each,
i Immediately after the shooting Alford
called out that he would give himself
up, and in a few minutes surrendered
to Constable Overall, of Rutherford,
who happened to be near at hand, Al- j
ford was armed with a pair of auto-
mm if s ?.!;bcr p:;tcb, IcLJ
steel bullets.
J. A. Alford is a prominent citizen
of Rutherford and is engaged at present
in the furniture business. He is a man
of perhaps 40 years of age, and is the
son-in-law of W. P. Elrod, a prominent
banker of the county, living at Ruther
ford. He has borne a good reputation
in his home community as being a man
of quiet and peaceable manner.
W. 8. Coulter had been prominent in
the affairs c4 this county for a number
of years. He was a son of the late
Maj. J. M. Coulter, who died only a
few years ago. He was in every respect
a self-made man and at & late age be
gan the practice of law, in which pro
fession he has achieved unusual suc
cess. He ia survived by a daughter,
Mrs. Hattie Belle Hays, of Dyer, and
a brother, Boone Coulter, of Union
- The affair has stirred the entire com
munity and Trenton is to-night filled
with tho friends of both parties.
Mr. Alford could not be reached this
evening, being in consultation with his
attorneys. ' '

Every time you spend a dollar with a
Chinaman .99 per cent of it goes across
the water. Every time you send your
work out of town, to another laundry,
a greater portion of that goes out of
town. When you spend your money
with the Union City Sttm Laundry
every dollar, and then some, remains
right in Union City. Many more dol
lars have been spent in an up-to-date
laundry and dry cleaning plant llinn
will be gotten out of Union City for
some years to come. Mr. T. B, Meador.
