Morgan, Dean, College of Agriculture, University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Ocean Freight Rates Advanced. Washington, Jan. 25. Evidence of extraordinary advances in trans-Atlantic freight rates since tbe outbreak of the European war, amounting in some in stances to 900 and even 1,150 per cent, was presented to the Senate to-day in a joint report from Secretaries McAdoo and Redfield. "While this report is being written," the statement says, "information is re ceived that rates are higher than those given in some of the tables presented, and that even at these extraordinary figures it is difficult to obtain cargo space for earlier sailings than March and April." The report contains numerous tables of rates on various commodities from American to European ports and sum marizes the principle advances since August 1. The report declares that in one year, if American exports maintain the De cember, 1914, level, the increased rates will make a charge of $216,224,400 on American shippers and that if the im ports be included on the same basis of calculation, tbe amount would reach the sum of $311,864,400, or 141.6 per cent over the usual cost. If normal rates are taken in conjunction with the abnormal on. the December basis the freight charges on both exports and imports in a year would make the grand total of $532,110,000. The report contains several score let ters from business men over the coun try declaring their inability to get bot tom8 for their freight, and charging discrimination by such carriers as are in business against freight that pays a low rate and the breaking of contracts by at least one of the big trans-Atlantic steamship companies. The report concludes with an argu ment in favor of the ship purchase bill in which the Senate is reminded that such unusual freight charges, if con tinued, may result in creating a big bal ance of trade against this nation. Fayette County Officers Wounded Memphis, Tenn., Jan. 26. Sheriff J. T. Jordan, aged 45, and Special Dep uty David Dobbins, aged 30, were shot and seriously wounded this morning at 11 o'clock in a pitched battle with Henry Roberts, aged 20, at a point four miles east of Somerville in Fay ette County. Sheriff Jordan was shot once in the abdomen and once in the mouth with pistol bullets. Deputy Dobbins re ceived several bullets in the abdomen and is not expected to live. The officers' went into the country to serve a warrant on Henry, John and Charley Roberts. It is alleged that Henry lay in ambush for the officers with the assistance of Charley, aged 21, and a third man. Two years ago Charley Roberts es caped from the State Industrial School at Nashville. He was assisted in mak ing his get-away by his brother, John The case was dropped and tbe brothers bad since made their home near the scene of to-day's shooting. The nature of the new charges against the Roberts boys has not been ascertained. The Loyal Order of Moose. Last week we told you something of what the Union City lodge is doing, so now let us give you a few things for which the order stands. The Loyal Order of Moose is a f ra ternal order of great magnitude, al though quite young. From a small beginning in tbe year 1906, f.om a membership of 241 char ter members, it has grown to be an order of some three-fourths of a mil lion. The order has built and is now maintaining a home at Mooseheart, 111 We own 2,000 acres of land, fertile and beautiful, located in tbe Fox River Val ley, and the value of the same is said to be $500 per acre, with an option of 2,000 acres more. This farm is stocked with the best of the different kinds of valuable stock, besides the large sum of money that is invested in schools, dor mitories, factories and such like, with a fine system of sewerage, water and light plant, with modern sidewalks. This home has been prepared for the purpose of taking care of the orphan children of the deceased members when they are not able to care for themselves These orphans not only get the best of instruction in books but are taught other things that will enable them to battle successfully with tbe affairs of life. They are taught to work and also instructed in different trades and pro fessions. It is the purpose of the order, and it is doing it at the present, to give the aged member a home when old age comes on the member having no one to take care of him in his declining years Twenty-five cents of the dues each quar ter is appropriated to defray the ex penses of this home. This amounts to one dollar per year for each member. There are several hundred children in this home at this time, and they are getting the practical part of an educa tion taught books and other things, and are also, in some instances, proving themselves to be quite efficient in vari ous lines of work. Cottages are being built whenever needed for aged people who come to the home, and the children are also looked after like the parents, and are given all necessary attention for their varied wants. These old Deorjle are made to feel at home and do not feel like they are objects of charity; in fact are not, but this home is made for them and the orphans of deceased members. It is a home in every sense of the word. As to our home in Union City, we can truthfully say that it is in every way one into which the most elegant! and refined can go and are made to feel that the atmosphere is pure and whole some, for strict decorum and the best of order prevail at all times, Some of the older members have for some time felt that a Y. M. C. A our city was very much needed, but for some reason the matter has not been considered as yet and we are striving to make this order as far as possible equal in all respects to a Y. M. C. A., and are glad to say that our dream has almost been realized. The "Reds" and the "Blues," which we spoke last week, are doing a good work and many names have al ready been added to our list of mem bers, and we hope when they come to see you they will be able to enlist you in this noble work, for such we think it to be. We- now have nearly 200 mem bers and hope to make it 300 in a 'very short time; that is, before the close of this contest. Yours in P. A. & P Pur Special Big Four Magazine Offer!

Cline, pastor of the First Chris tian Church in Pine Bluff, will con duct a personal lobby In the State Legislature against a bill to abolish capital punishment. "I believe in the old Mosaic law of 'an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth,' " the minister said in dis cussing his stand. "Six States, among them New York and Wiscon sin, abolished capital punishment. rne increase or crime was so enor mous that the electric chair was re installed. it is not justice that a man can kill another in cold blood and then be kept in comparative comfort for the rest of hia life at the expense of law-abiding people."

Paducah, Ky., Jan. 27. The busi ness section of the city was thrown into commotion early this afternoon when W. B. St. John, of Fulton, Ky., in mod ern bandit style, drove up to the First National Bank in ataxicab and attempt ed to rob it by poking a long pistol through a cage and demanding that Assistant Cashier George Warfield hand him the large pile of money laying on the latter's counter. Warfield eneaeed the robber in conversation while Cashier Nolan Vanculin, approaching from the rear, grabbed St. John and disarmed him, with the assistance by bystanders. An alarm sent to the police station brought patrolmen and detectives quick ly to the bank, and St. John was ar rested and placed in the county jail. St. John was intoxicated, according to'policemen, who believe he had read of such robberies, and thought he could perpetrate one successully. His only statement was: "I pulled a bone." The Warrant issued against St. John charges attempted bank robbery. Card of Thanks, We tender our heartfelt thanks to the dear friends who were so kind to us dur ing the illness of Mrs. Sara Ferrell.
