It seems that Nelse and a low down white women by the name of Minnie Booze took a shine to each other and were cutting high jinks when the court as sessed them $35 each. Jim Hardy Jr. Thursday afternoon the sad intelligence of the death of James Hardy Jr., reached this city, where his father and rela tives are well known.

About that hour he quite work and went to the house and that was the last seen of him. At 4:00 o'clock his body was found in the well. He had plunged or fallen in head first and the body, head down, was wedged in between a piece of timber and th wall nf the well, the Took A Tumble. Sunday morning Reid Noland was exercising a black single-footed-racker on Davis Street and when he turned off onto Dover Street he was going a jolly good clip.

He landed in a soft place but was pretty well shook up for all of that. By All Means. The Paris Mercury ought to use every endeavor and by all means get Mrs. A. W.

The farm has a good stone dewelling, barns and out build ings on it. That was a surprise worth receiving, but you ought to have seen Walt after he came down town, to put it easy, he was not a good picture of af ter partaking of a good dinner or advertisment for a swell birthday dinner for he was as fiat and thin as a shoe string, but all smiles. His friends con gratulace him on his good for tune and will miss him when he becomes a "Hay seed." For Alderman. D. A. Ely C. L. Drescher. D. D. Melson For School Directors. For one year term. W. W.

Deiamotta, Clark, Carrier and Coombs-a quartet of tine lyric artists sure to bring out to the fullest ex tent every beauty of the score. Branching; Out.
