Your Obedient Servants, Board Of Health. ---- One of Mr. W. R. Steed’s little boys, with some others, was in swimming last Wednesday after noon in Garland creek and came very near being drowned. He had sunk the third time when Chase Stephens went in and brought him out. Mr. Huff, of the Rose Hill Dairy, came along at this juncture and put the boy in his milk wagon and hurried to town with him where he receiv ed proper treatment and was resuscitated. VANDERBILT ROW NEARING CLIMAX Memphis, June 20.—That Bishop E. R. Hendrix of Kan say City, Mo., may have his character arrested and be sus pended from the bishopric in 60 days, that Chancellor Kirkland will be removed from office at the head of Vanderbilt Univer sity and that 19 trustees who voted that the church did not own the university and that trustees elected by the church would not be received, will be ejected from the board, is the confident prediction of leading Methodists who today became acquainted with plans of the bishops to bring the celebrated controversy to a conclusion. In the case of Bishop Hendrix his character will be arrested by three traveling elders, one a member of the Board of Trust, and the case will go to the Col lege of Bishops. Under the law of the church the bill of charges is laid before the College of Bishops and either the senior bishop or the college as a body appoint 12 traveling elders to act as a Grand Jury. Should this committee report a trial neces sary the bishop would be by that act suspended from his bishopric and from all rights as a Metho dist minister until the next meeting of the general confer ence, when his case would go to the Committee on Episcopacy for trial. At the recent meeting of the Board of Trust of Vanderbilt University Bishop Hendrix voted not to receive the three trustees his church had elected and voted to reject the resolution which af firmed ownership of the church. F'itzhugh and Biggs of Mem phis, Chief Justice Edward C. O’Rear of the Kentucky Court of Appeals, and Judge Nat E. Harris of Georgia have been re tained by the church to prose cute. In addition Bishop Hoss, Bishop Wilson and other mem bers of the College of Episcopacy have other council. On July 10 the College of Bishops will meet in Nashville, at which this coun cil will advise what action shall be taken Bishop Hoss was in consultation today with Fitzhugh and Biggs. inert* are some pnases oi ims case which the bishop refused to discuss, but it was learned that he had been given advice by council that the College of Bishops should at once exercise its rights as visitors and remove Chancellor Kirkland from the university and all anti-Methodist members of the Board of Trust. This advice has been given other bishops and it is believed tnat on its meeting in July this will be the acting of the college. That the case will eventually go to the Supreme Court of the United is certain, for$3,000,00 worth of property is involved and men worth many milliins are fighting William L. Vanderbilt whose money endowments have helped Vanderbilt University. Vander bilt is enlisted on the side of Chancellor Kirkland. ■ --to • to- -—— Elmore May, of Jackson town ship was a Prescott visitor Wednesday. The second bloom of cotton , was brought to this office by Sam House, a farmer on route 3, and a neighbor of Mr. Cathey who was the first to get here with one. Only a day’s differ ence in them. Hurrah for route 3. THE MAN WHO CURSED HIS COUNTRY The unhappy result of even a momentary and heedless lapse from patriotism is well illustrated by Edward Everett Hale’s story. “The Man Without a Country,” which, while it reads like history, has in reality no foundation on fact. Philip Nolan is a young soldier, on duty at Fort Adams, and is charmed by the manner and character of Aaron Burr. After Burr’s trial for treason, the soldiers at Fort Adams while away their monotony holding mock-courts-martial, Nolan was accused of being tired of the ser vice, and being found guilty was asked if he had anything to say for himself. He cursed the Unit ed States and said, “I wish I may never hear of the United States again.” The soldier was taken at his word and placed on board ship, w7ith orders that he was never to see the United States again, nor even to hear its name mentioned From that day in 1807 till the day he died in 1863 he was a man without a country. The day before he died he call ed one of the officers on the ship and told of his wretchedness and of h»s real love for his coun try. He saw 34 stars on the flag and begged to know the name s of the states that had been admitted and the progress of the country. i nai mgni ne aiea ana in ms Bible this text was marked, “They desire abetter country that is an heavenly; wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he hath prepared for them a city.” Human government is a divine institution. In a good govern ment loyalty to country is made out of the same material as lov - alty to God. There are some who have a very poor estimate of the value of American citizen chip. They have not the fain test idea of the privileges and re sponsibilities which it implies. Some who come to our sho res with false notions of authority, seem, by some Satanic frenzy, to cry out and tight against the veryjinstitutions that otfer them the richest blessings. And some who are in our own land are poi soned by the same spirit, and they do not hesitate to slav the NATIONAL GUARD PROMOTIONS Mayor E. L. Compere, assist ant adjutant general of the Ark ansas National Guard, yesterday announced the following promo tions in the guard, effective im mediately: Clint H.

Kuykendall, from sergeant to second lieutenant of the same company. officers of the law, and are hap piest when the chief executive, thelmcdeljruler, the idol of the nation,!is stricken down. It is time for the shame and crime to cease. The country is waking up, alas! too tardily to the task of keeping or sending away from t he shelter and lichtof our flag, those who have it so much. — FIRSTiCOTTON BLOOM J. B.
