FRANKLIN, Tenn., Oct. 25. The
fase of Joe Beard, charged with the
killing of his Uncle Pink Beard, on
Lick Creek, near White Oak, a year
co last August, in this county, is on
trial here in the crminal court. Yes
terday was devoted to getting a Jury.
When court opened today eleven ve
niremen had been accepted. A large
number of witnesses have been um
fltoned, and the case promises .o be
a stubbornly contested one and will
watche Vi.''h considerable inter-
educational way.
Attorney J. H. Dinning, of Colum
bit, and Attorney P. S. Chandle.'. ot
Mt. Pleasant, were present as orators
of the day, and each made a fine talk,
and while encouraging and commend
ing the motives that prompted the
gathering they gave out some :aost
wholesome advice and sound sugges
tions with regard to schools and
school work, and the interest that is
now prevalent and spreading in Mau
ry county.
Dinner was served on the grounds,
having been prepared by the good
people of the surrounding oommuntty,
and a most generous feast it was.
The social intercourse, the discus
sion of school matters, Che splendid
speeches of Messrs. Dinning and
Chandler, and other talks, the excel
lent dinner and the impetus of good
fellowship and education, all tended
fto make a most pronounced success.

to get busy and have him do this
work for them where it will be con

It will bo remembered by those
who read the former article in re

be done, a demonstration of the theo

OF CADET NAMED
JOHN DUNCAN WILL BE THE ED

Within a short time the publication
of the Cadet, the periodical issued b'y
the Columbia Military Academy, will
be renewed. The staff has been
elected and the members are busy
soliciting the advertisements and get
ting up thp matter for the first issue.
A contract has been made with The
Herald for the publication of the
monthly. Ever since the establish
ment of the Cadet it has been issued
from the office of The Herald.
The following capable staff has
been chosen:
John Duncan, editor in chief.
Robert Garner, business manager.
Leo Wiggy, associate. j
Horace White, exchange editor.
Clarence Fry, assistant business
manager.
J. B. Sharp, staff artist.

, It is only through the importation
of western horses from sections w cere
the Texas tick is known that Mr.
Akin can account for the presence of
ticks among the cattle in the secMons
through which he haB been. Those
horses were turned on pastures with
the cattle aid the result has been that
Mr. Akin found several head of the
cattle on the farms mentioned with
ticks on them. He will visit every
farm where there is reason to believe
that any stock on it has been exposed
to the infection.
The Texas fever has proven a great
source of luss to sections where it has
existed. In counties of Tenenssee and
the States South where a quarantine
has been enforced by the federal gov
ernment the price of cattle has been
from twenty-five to fifty per cent less
than it has been above the line.

The crop in spite of the drouth dur
ing Peptemoer. is repoi ted to be a
good one aid the yeild was estimated
today by one of the best Judges and
most experienced buyers in the coun
ty, at twenty-live barrels to the acre,
This will be more thrn twice the av
erage yield on the first crop. How
ever, the profits win net necessarily
be twice as great for the price is only
about half what it was for the first
crop.
Dealers are offeiing only SI. 75 per
barrel and may farmers aie hesitat
ing about selling ,at that price. They
are inclined to hold for $2 per bar
rel. This appears to be the decision
of a large number of farmers In th
Glendale and Culleoka , sections,
where a large portion of the crop of
the county is grown.
At twenty-five barrels to the acre,
even at the low price of $1.75 per bar
rel, the f'.eld will be nearly forty
five dollars an acre, considered a pret
ty good return for any crop. Tber
between 2,000 and 3,000 acres in po

ter figure would be a conservative es
