Dee Harmond, a young man aged 20 years, a resident of Number Twelve, was drowned on Monday, the 24th inst., in the slough near Long bridge. Harmond and two other boys, Chas. Cottrell and Homer Reedy, went fishing on Reelfoot Creek near the bridge, and were in a boat in which they tried to cross the slough when the accident took place. The boat capsized some way, probably by the boys shifting posi tions, and all fell into the water. Cottrell Swam out, Reedy was near ly drowned but caught the boat and pulled himself out. Dee was the most unfortunate one and lost his life in the water. The slough was about ten or twelve feet in depth. Harmond was the son of Bud Har mond, known for his splendid char acter and habits, and esteemed by the community.

"The steps of God in the sands of time are centuries apart.7' The con sciousness of men is awakening to the political evils, and the "Ship of State is guided by a man -whose wisdom tran scends political partisanship. Elections cannot be explained from a political standpoint, but from a consciousness of the nation, which has given us a young man of character and purpose; and if the people don't show their gratitude for President Wilson by placing him at the head of the government for another term they will have exhibited the bas est ingratitude. It is the passing of pro vincialism that elected Woodrow Wilson to the Presidency. God gave me to know what I am by my company, and he is putting it into the consciousness of men to see that women stand side by side with them in the elimination of world evils. It's coming whatever we do or say, and woman may stay at home if she wants to, but no man has a right to raise his hand or voice against her right to vote. The question of taxation without rep resentation is as old the American col onies, and if it was wrong then it is wrong now. I would not be true if I did not include it with the great world evils. Women must take her mop and Dutch cleanser and clean out our State houses. You have one in Tennessee that needs cleaning and we have one in Kentucky. I see in Tennessee that you have one man who presses the button and controls the State. This is provin cialism in politics, and in the passing people are coming into their own. Speaker here branched into religion, and spoke of the old fellow in Texas whose religion had wiggle tails in it. Teach all things unto all men,'" and thereby in the broadest catholic sense we emerge from provincialism. .We get rid of the wiggle tails. Jesus came into the world to give us a great conscious ness, and as soon as we rise to this con dition we know what religion is. I am glad to be present on your class night in order that I may in some do gree convey to the class the idea of the mighty place to which; the world is call ing them. The members of the Board of Education are laying out a great plan of work and must stand four square by the great problems. To the class I congratulate you and appeal to your conscience for the higher standards of manhood and womanhood of America the passing of provincialism., The valedictory, a beautiful essay, was then read by Miss Willa Eunice Whitson as follows: VALEDICTORY. A..(G&Mme -Palm 1 I: ; Stouts, Longs and Regulars Various Colors in el A, Colble -(D), To-night the class of 1915 ceases to be "Are's." They will henceforth take their places in the ranks of the "Has Been's" of High School Life. The old High School becomes dearer as we ponder how beneath her sheltering care and amidst her widespread influence we, for four long years, have striven with vary ing successes, for this to us great moment graduation. The long-looked-for time has come. How many of us are suitably prepared for the life that lies before us? How many have made a de cision as to what account they shall turn the talents thus far cultivated? No doubt many of us have looked forward to this evening as the be ginning of a period of rest. And this is indeed right, if Rest is not quitting the busy career, Rest is the fitting of self to its sphere, ' 'Tis the brook's motion, clear, with out strife, Running to ocean after its life, 'Tis loving and serving the highest and best, 'Tis onward, unswerving, and that is true rest." The first task before .us is the fitting of self to its sphere" that sphere fn which we can be of most service to mankind. It has been tried and proven that "true happi- j ness lies in service well performed." There are a number of names which have lived and always will live in the memory of man because of the great works of service with which .they" are connected. Joan of Arc, the pure, lovely shep herd girl, tending her flocks on the plains of Domremy, before she was seventeen renounced all ties of earthly love, left her aged father and her loving sisters, put aside all her own personal interests and hu man desires, donned the steel armor, took up the snowy banner, and en tered a life of service for her coun try and her king. Florence Nightingale and Clara Barton, early in life, consecrated themselves to lives of service in the Red Cross field, giving themselves entirely to caring for wounded bod ies and encouraging wounded spir its. ' ; Philips Brooks, the Episcopalian bishop, known and loved all over Massachusetts as"Our Bishop," dedi cated his whole personality, his whole being to the service . of his people and all people, and the greatness of the peoples', love for him was witnessed by the attend ance of the whole population of Boston when the last sad rites were spoken. The highest and lowest mourned alike for their loved 'Bishop." The service of the poets, Shake speare and Milton, is found in their great legacy of poetry to mankind. Mozart and Schuman left a lasting service in the form of music. Frances Williard performed a noble work along the line of temperance. All these have served and well has their service been performed, but there is yet another, the great est of them all. There is one whose love "passeth all understanding," one who laid down his own life that all might have eternal life. That greatest example of service is the lowly Nazerene. His was the serv ice of loving sacrifice, the giving of himself for others, however poor and humble. We, the class of 1915, with so many examples, so many forms of service before us, hope some day to receive the praise due those whose best effort, whose greatest love has been spent in behalf of those about them. However, should we fail to startle the world by our deeds, or never reach the Halls of Fame, let us at least find comfort in the words of the blind Milton, "They alsoj serve who only stand and wait." Classmates, this idea is em bodied in that new memorial left by us in Alma Mater's Assembly Hall. Mottoes may be forgotten. Monu ments or Dricn ana piaster may crumble and decay, but the memory of a life well spent in service can not be destroyed. The pebble drop ped into the ocean makes a- ripple which Is felt on the farther shore even though not consciously per ceived. Hebe was but a cup bearer in the spacious halls of the gods, a myth; and yet, were all the statutes to be destroyed, were, all the printed pages to be burned, that storied service is so stamped in the universal mind of man that it cannot be. obliterated so long as a single memory exists. Your lesson and mine is plainly this. Hebe's was a lowly service, and yet her reputation is world wide. Her's but a creation of the mind ours may and must be a force, not for the pleasure of gods, but for the uplift of humanity and the en nobling of a world. Remember Hebe emblazon above this fancied form of service our mot to, "Perfection," and 1915, true to her concrete ideals, will become the embodiment of all that even parents, Board of Education, instructors, or the Superintendent could ever hope or dream. Superintendent Nute made some re marks, speaking of the percentages made by the different grades, which ran very high for the year. He referred to the fact that of the present class Wil liam Baxter Forrester and Kate Lee Kirkman had finished the four-year course in three years. He in the course of hia talk referred to some criticisms of the superintendent and Bcbool as newspaper lies. This, he explained to us privately, had no connection with anything the papers here had said on the subject. The exercises closed with the award ing of diplomas by Dr. C. W. Miles, who was very complimentary to each one of the young ladies and young gen tlemen, extending them the kindest wishes for the benedictions and the blessings of a munificent Providence. ' Resolutions, of Respect. At a meeting of Bethel Camp, No. 13453, a committee was appointed May 8, 1915, to draft suitable reso lutions relating to the life and death of W. E. Logan, a deceased of Bethel Camp M. W. A. . ... Our deceased neighbor after some days of hard struggle with pneu monia succumbed to its ravages and conquered his last enemy in ;' this life, death, at his home near Wood land Mills, Tenn., April 19, 1916. He was born in Obion County, . Ten nessee, April 20, 1871. His parents both died when he was only a babe to be raised by his kind grandmoth er and uncle, Lon Logan. He was married to Miss Rost Crawford ,and to this union four children were born, who, with their mother, still survive him. He professed faith in Christ early in life and answered ready" when the - summons " came for him to go. He was a good man of many friends and few enemies. who wished only the good things for his country, the pleasant things for his neighbors, and the peace, hap piness and welfare of his family. On Tuesday, April 20, 1915, after funeral services at Salem, conducted by Rev. Butts, his remains were gently laid to rest in Salem Ceme tery by the Modern Woodman Fra ternity and his brothers of Bethel Camp in all the honor? of the fra ternity which he so richly deserved by his loyalty to the camp and or der. - .' . Therefore be it resolved, first; That we humble ourselves in meek submission to the inscrutable "hand of the all-wise, unerring and Just God of all grace, who hath called him into his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, who doeth all things well. And let us praise him for the beau tiful life and character of Four be-' loved neighbor, W. E. Logan. Second; That in the death -fit our. friend and neighbor the frwhily has been deprived of a kind and loving father and husband; the camp an honored and loyal member; the com munity an ideal citizen, and that we honor his memory by our love and reverence toward his good wife and children.'

Jess Oliver, of Harris Station, and a Mr. Lewis, of Mississippi,' were blown to atoms by dynamite on the night of the 20th inst. when on a fishing excur-j sir-a on the Obion Eiver. The two men, both of whom worked near Harris, were on a heavy dredge boat and the suppo sition is that when they threw the dyna mite into the water the swift current turned it under the boat, when the ex plosion occurred. The men were missed at their places of employment and searching parties sent up the "river soon located parts of the boat and a hat and coat floating in the stream. They were in a mangled state and the bank of the river and trees in the vicinity were cov ered with blood. v , Big Muddy washed nut coal is bes for cooking. Call 150. Union City Ice & Coal Co. .'-.
