vol viii-no. Si ' MADISON, FLA.. THURSDAY. JANUARY 21 , 1909- $1 Ain-i'VEl Ugly Rumor Unfounded- Lusl week an ugly rumor was circulated in Madison to the effect tlSt Rev. Burke Culpepper who ainducti'.l a g-ca- revival meeting in the Methodist church here last sum ruad "shot at a man in a con gvegation ami lulled a, woman." 'flie place where this awful tragedy was alleged to have occurred was stated jj'-soiue town iii Georgia." The editor of this paper upon bfnriiii! tLe rumor directed a letter to Mr. Culjieppir at his home in VaMosta. The letter "as forwarded to Suther land, '"'la.) where he conducted a Meeting last week and an answer ws received Sunday in which Mr. CuleppiT wrote: "Your letter was tie first I had heard of the awf.il tugeily. I am glad it occurred in jome Ananias miud instead of my life." Thus is the ugly and seem ingly malicious report proven un founded. The lumor seems to have been circulated ir. other parts of the State slsoas the following from the Tal lahassee True Democrat of last week will show: "Some person with grots malice or criminal thoughlessness started the rumor in Tallahassee last week that Rev. Burke Culpepper, who assisted his father in a great revival here in November, had shot at a man ami killed a woman. The ru mor spread rapidly and was soon the subject of conversation, on the streets and In every house. "Rev. I. S Patterson, the pastor of Trinity church, placed no cred We in the rumor, hut in order to quiet it, wrote to his father, Rev. John B. Culpepper, for a denial or confirmation. . . "Mr. Culpepper replied in this characteristic way: '"The man who Burke shot at he certainly missed, and the omao be killed ii still alive. Absolutely do foundation foi the rumor, not even a quarrel,' "Protested christians and to-called members of the gospel have been conspicuous in circulating this ru mor. They should now be more busy in denying It." The Pure Food Law. Secretary Wilson says:, "One of the object of the law la to inform the con sumer of the presence of certain harm ful drugs iu juediciDes." The law re quires that the amount of chloroform, opium, morphine and other habit form ing drugs be stated on the label of each bottle. The manufacturers of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy have al ways claimd that their remedy did not contain any of these drugs, and the truth of this claim Is now fully proven ai no mention of them Is made on the label. This remedy is not only one of the safest, but one of the best In use for coughs and colds. Its value hss been proven beyond question during the fcauy years it bas been In general use. For sale by w.

" . ... ! n-'ain, mil it sct-ius nut we are us- appointed. II . w can this opposition to such needed improvement be ex plained? It is c.i.y. With M.idisou aid the court house in the center, Greenville near the wes-terii holder of the county, L'vette in the North west, l'inetta and Hanson in the Northeast Lee, Ellaville an I West farm in the eastern portion, it is very natural for the p ople in those towus and the vicinity o' them to want all the go'.d imds leading to tht'ir owr town, and Madison with the cotirt houte and in the' center, very naturally claims that all the roads should point towards the cen ter So, inasmuch as we can't all bave the good roads first, we will not have them at all. With this condition oi affairs con fronting us we will never get a board of County Comii.issioneis who are a uoit on road building. What is the remedj? I see only one: The sub district plan. Let each section divide into sub road districts, levy and collect their own taxes and build their own roHds and then we will try to outrival each other in the good work. I her one man say: '"But our district does aot want to build loads for people of other districts to diive over." Brother that is a mistake. That is Just what we do want. We people in the Madison district want to build fine roads and invite not only the people of the neighboring districts but the people of adjoining counties to ride over them and see our fine farms and pay us a fancy price for what lands we wish to sell.
