The prince of Wales succeeded to the crown immediately, ac cording to the laws of the king dom without official ceremony. His first official act was to send to the lord mayor the announce ment of his father’s death, in pursuance of custom.

The people had been ex pecting it any hour since the evening’s bulletin was posted at Buckingham palace and flashed throughout the kingdom. The capital received it with great ex citement, but sadly, for the king with his own people was unques-1 tionably one of the most popular, rulers in the world. — — — ■ ■— NOTICE On account of District Lard Congress Picnic to be held it Highland, Ark., June 11th, the Prescott and Northwestern Railroad Company will sell tickets from all stations to High land, Ark., at One fare for the round-trip.

Henry Harding was hanged here at 12: 20 p. m. today, and the body was cut down ten min utes later. The remains will be shipped to Memphis for interment in Calvary cemetery. Harding died game as a pea cock. He made a speech at the court house before beginning the march to the gallows. He de clared that Patterson. 0. N. Kil lough and the Chancery Court were to blame for his death. At the scafford he made practically the same speech. He said that he was an honest man and that he was being hanged by a bunch of thieves and robbers. He was pronunced dead by Dr. Barner in 20 minutes after the drop fell. He said he had notified Ril lough and Gardner to be present, but noticed that none of them were present.. Henry Harding was hangt'd for the deliberate murder of Hon. J. T. Patterson, who repre sented Cross County in the Leg islature of 1905. The killing oc curred in Patterson’s law office at Wynne October 10, 1909. A speedy trial followed, and Hard ing was sentenced to hang De cember 31, 1909. An appeal was granted December 23 by Chief Justice McCulloch, acting as a stay of execution, and on Febru ary 28, last, the Supreme Court affirmed the sentence of the lower court. Later, upon the issuance of the mandate, Gover nor Donaghey fixed today as the date of execution, and refused all applications made for a com mutation of sentence or further stay. The tragedy was the result of an altercation between Harding and Patterson, who was his at torney in a civil suit in the Cross Circuit Court. Patterson had won the suit, but Harding did not approve the management of the case, and went to Patter son’s office tc adjust their differ ences. The argument became heated, and Harding shot and killed Patterson. He claimed The great Baking Powder of the country— used in millions of homes—never failed Fifty Years the Standard D? PRICES' CREAM Baking Powder Received the highest award at Chicago World’s Fair that Patterson attempted first to strike him with a chair, but the State’s evidence did not bear out this contention. It was shown that Harding was abusive and was ordered from the office, and as he turned to leave drew his revolver and shot the attorney dead. ---— A LETTER FROM T. D. BUCHANAN To The Voters of Nevada Co.: Having been urged by ny friends of both political parties to announce myself for the of fice of county surveyor, I have consented to make the race. I suppose that I am generally known by most of my fellow citizens of Nevada County, hav ing canvassed the county some few years ago. I do not think this office should be to the inter est of any political party. As to my qualifications, I beg leave to say that I feel fully competent to perform the duties required of a surveyor, having, when a young man, studied the science under my teacher, (Prof. W. F. Tucker, of the state of Mississip pi,) who was a graduate in civil engineering and surveying. Since that time I have put into practice what I learned in theory. For many years I have done work in the surrounding counties and especially in Clark and Ne vada. Should you deem me worthy of your suffrage it will be highly appreciated and if elected, I promise to do all the work instrusted to me in the line of surveying, accurately and ac* cording to the field notes on file in the clerks office. Give me your vote in the Sep tember election and I will make you a faithful, impartial and ef ficient surveyor. Respectfully. T. D. Buchanan.
