To the Voters of Obion Couuty: I take this method at this time to let you know I will be a candidate for the office of Trustee of Obion Cwwnty at the proper time, which will be after the Democratic committee has met and taken action oo this matter, and that will not be until spring or next summer. I regret to have to call your attention to this at this time, as you are sick and tired of election, but am forced to say this much now for the reason that two or three prospective candidates have been making a gum shoe canvass of the county for the List yenr, and I can't afford to be left at the post (so to speak). I made the race eialit years ago, against George Worley and w present trustee, J. II. Sanders, and was defeated by both of them. They will tell you I supported both of them for two full terms each. Now I think I am next at the bat, and that I Hiu in the eligible list aod wor thy ami come well recommended and will see you all at the proper time, but solicit your support and influence now.

Frank Douglas Caldwell, for many years a locomotive engineer on the M. & O. Railroad, died at the home of his sister. Mrs. Ora Pyle, in Rives, this county, on Thursday, Nov. 5, 1914, at 9 p! m., of neuralgia of the heart, after an illness of less than an hour's dura tion. Mr. Caldwell, we understand, for a number of years had occasional at tacks of heart trouble, and the fatal at tack Inst Thursday night, fortunately, found him with his sister, Mrs Pyle, and niece, Mrs. Hooper. Physicians were summoned and reached the sick man, who was, however, beyond the reach of human agency. Frank Caldwell was the son of Waller Caldwelj, one of the pioneer citizens of Rjves, and one of the grand old-time characters of that community, along with T. B. Moffat and others who have long since joined the innumerable throng. The son inherited much of his father's personality and many of his nobla qualities. He was born in 18G8 and reared in Rives. Twenty years ago he entered the service of the M. & O. Railroad Company and remained with that company, the intervening years, with a multiplicity of wrecks and rail road disasters, bringing him do acci dent. He was true and unfaltering in the discharge of duty, an engineer of the highest skill and efficiency and grad ually rose to the demands of the most important assignments and esteem of the brotherhood. , Mr. Caldwell was located in Jackson and came over to Rives to join his out ing club on their annual camp at Reel foot Lake. The news of his death was a distinct shock to the entire commu nity, and the little chy was unexpect edly shrouded in gloom. The survivors are an only sister, Mrs. Ora Pyle, a niece, Mrs. Leslie Hooper, four half sisters: Mrs. W. L Clemmons, Rives; Mrs. Henry Head, Santa Ana., Cal.; Mrs. Martha MeLeod, Louisiana; Mrs. T. C. Walker, Athens, Texas, and three half brothers: W. J. Caldweii, Rives; Seth M. Owens and David Owens, of Texas. - On Saturday afternoon a large con course of relatives and friends and the two orders, of which he was a member, from Jackson the Brotherhood of ) Lb- motive Engineers and B. .: P. O. Elks, foUowed the remains to the nearby cem etery on Clemmons hill, forming in procession with the engineers in the lead. Rev. W. O. Weir read a seripture lesson, followed with invocation, and paid, a tribute of eulogy to the dead. Hon. T, J. Bonner made an address in 'memory of his friend, both tender ind touching, calling to mind the fact that he had, forty-five years ago, sold goods for Frank Caldwell's father, and had known the deceased all his life a man that needed no admonition, whose eulogy is a life of honorable manhood, patient industry, human sympathy, generosity, charity and kindness. A tribute from R. L. Harper was that Frank could always be found do the moral side with the better part of life's earthly ineritance. In his prime he wis stricken, and like him we should live, so that when the summons comes we will be grepared to meet our God. "The Elks of the Jackson lodge con cluded the burial service. The active pall bearers were Roscoe Kitchell, Will Gould Harris. Knox Harper, Horace Wade,' Edgar Shore and O. H. Clem mons. The honorary pall bearers were J, B. Caudle, R. L. HarperDr. E. H. White, Khox Wade, Geo. . Botts and W. A. McNeill. The new-made grave was left banked with elaborate floral designs from the fraternities, relatives and friends. ' Ms. and Mrs. .Wilson, Mrs. Ingra bam and daughter, Miss Lois, and Mrs. Ogden eame over from Jackson to at tend the funeral. . Card of Thanks. We wish to be remembered with the deejiest gratitude to the friends for their rainacta of kindness to us during the illness of the late Frank D. Caldwell. May the blessings of a Loving Father abide with you. Me. and Mrs. W. L. Clemmons. ". Mas. Ora Pylk. f Mrs. Eta Hooper. , Mrajtd Mrs. W. J. Caldwell. Football.

"I am a carpenter, and the grippe left me not only with a chronic cough, but I was run-down, worn out and weak. I took all kinds of cough syrups but they did me no good. I finally got so weak I was not able to do a day work, and coughed so much I was alarmed about mv condition. One evening I read about Vinol and decided to try it. Before I had taken a quarter of a bottle I felt better, and after taking two bottles my cough is entirely cured, all the bad symptoms have disappeared and I have gind newvim and enrgy." John L. Dennis, Til Lynch Street; Jackson, Miss. The reason Vinol is so successful ill such cases is because the active medic inal principles of cod liver oil contained in Vinol rebuilds wasting tissues and supplies strength and vigor to the nerves and muscles while the tonic iron and wine assist the red corpuscles of the jdood to absorb oxygen and distribute it through the system, thus restoring health and strength to the weakened, diseased organs of the body. - If Vinol fails to help'you, we return your money.
