The Yowell Saddlery Co, has in stalled a new hot wax harness stitching machine. It is a great improvement over the old hot wax machine, it has the awl and barbed needle and carries a larger thread than the size of the needle mak ing a perfectly water proof stitch j and filling the hole entirely with ' waxed thread, this also makes it ' impossible to rip a single stitch and ' is recognized as the greatest im provement over the eye needle method. The machine has a larger field of work than most of wax machines, as fine buggy harness can be stitched as well as the heavi est team trace. The power used is al 1-2 horse gasoline engine. Murphy.

Again, let me call your attention to the question of electing a 6chool commissioner on April 6, who will become superintendent of the schools of the county in August. Below are some of the the duties of the office as provided by the new law: The superintendent is to give his whole time to the duties of the office. He alone is to examine and certi ficate the teachers. He is to examine and grade pu pils finishing the common school, course. He is to grade the schools of the . county and make course of study for same. He is to hold six meetings each year in different parts of the county for the purpose of advising with school officers and teachers. He is to visit each school in the county at least once a year. The salary of this office in Mon roe County will be eleven hundred dollars aside from the fees of about two hundred dollars. Four hundred toilers of this salary is to be paid out of state appropriations. Bear in mind that the county su perintendent will assume all the du ties and responsibilities that now devolve on the entire county board of education. Am I seeking the office again? No, not again for this is an entirely new office. Do I seek it merely for the re muneration? No, for the past several years I have been employed at a salary of nine hundred dollars a year which is more than can be cleared above traveling expenses as superintend ent. Why then do I seek the office? Because it is the ambition of my life to give my entire time and at tention to the educational uplift of tne children of Monroe County. Am I qualified for the place I seek? For sixteen years I have taught continuously in the county losing scarcely a month in a year. For sixteen years a member and constant attendant on the State Teachers' Associations. For the past eight years as member of the board of education in the county in which capacity I have been asso ciated with the qualified educators ol the state and the best school men of the county. A holder of a normal diploma and state life certificate. Remember that I have practically the support of the entire teaching force of the county I beg that you consider well the qualifications of those offering for the place and the interests of the schools of the coun ty, then be careful how you vote and vote for the good of the schools. Very truly yours. J. B. ROGERS. Four to Zero. The first game of ball played this season at Amusement Park was be tween the Monroe team, of which much is expected this season, and the High School team. It was readily seen from the start that the boys who defeated Madison Saturday at Paris with a score of 14 to 1 was badly out classed. The score was 4 to 0 in favor of the City team. Some of the City team did ex cellent work in spite of the cold. Negro Shot. Sheriff Nolen and son were rounding up some of the denizens in the African part of Paris, Satur day night and a fellow by name of Kemper made a break for liberty. The Sheriffs son saw the break and plugged the n:n-away in the should er with a ball that tumbled him over like a rabbit. Then it was easy to secure the balance. Hot Chase. Monday afternoon two young negroes, yellow and black, supposed to be fiom Paris, grew cold at the Katy depot and didn't do a thing but build a fire in a box car. The agent and James Christian discovered the smoke and found the negroes in the car and a fire burning cn the floor. They were ordered out of thj car and Mr. James ran for a bucket of water wh'le Mr. Christian stood guard. Then the negroes seeing the Quarrels jail awaiting them struck a rapid gait east and it was then Mr. Christian brought his gun into play, but the faster he fired the faster the negroes put distance be tween themselves and the man with the gu a Mrs. Mary Sidner went to Farber Monday to visit relatives.
