THOMAS & CO, Bell Telephone 175, Citizens Telephone 322. 6wkly2t&dly2sats JUDGE SALMON IS BOOMED FOR MAYOR BY THE OPPOSITION POPULAR MEMBER OF BAR URG ED TO ENTER THE COMING CONTEST. DEDMAN'S FRIENDS ARE SANGUINE Declare That They Are Indifferent as to Whether or Not Chief Executive Has Opposition As They Are ConrV dent of a Victory. Contrary to expectations. Mayor Joseph M. Dedman may, after all, have opposition in his race for a third term. Until the past week it had been almost generally conceded that the mayor would be allowed another term at the city hall without having to get up a perspiration even to get there. But in the past two or three days there has grown in volume talk of another candidate. Judge W. C. Salmon, president of the city board of education, and one of the most popular speakers of the city, is being importuned by his many friends to enter the lists. At first it is said that Judge Salmon declined to consider the matter, but so many have urged him that it is understood that he has agreed to take the mat ter under advisement. However, no intimation has come from him as to his intentions. Judge Salmon is a very busy man. He has a large practice and much personal business in addition to his legal work to look after and his en trance into the campaign would nec essarily be at a personal sacrifice. For these reasons it is regarded as very doubtful about his running, no matter how strong the pressure may be. Although never a. candidate for office he has always taken an active interest in public affairs. The supporters of the mayor are In no way concerned, they say, over the rumors of opposition. They will neither try to prevent it nor encour age it. They seem to be utterly indif ferent So confident are they that Mayor Dedman cannot be beaten that they refuse to get a bit excited over the suggestion of the candidacy of any one. They declare that they had Just as soon have Judge Salmon in the field as any one else. Mayor Dedman has made no state ment as to his intentions, but it has been known for a year that he would be a candidate for another term. While never talking for publication on -the subject close friends of the mayor know that he is absolutely con fident of the outcome of the campaign and is giving rumors of opposition very little, If any concern.

Patrolman Lancaster rounded up Will Jackson, colored, on Glade Btreet yesterday afternoon and landed him in jail. Jackson was wanted in Nashville on a charge of larceny and the description of the negro was re ceived here several days ago and the eagle eye of Lancaster soon singled him out and took him under his pro tecting wing. It is understood that Jackson is also wanted In Birming ham on a charge of larceny and that he had been sentenced to two years and after serving two months made his escape. Jackson gives ' his home as Merid ian, Miss. An officer arrived here this morning from Nashville and took Jackson back with him. : . a FUEL OIL FOUND TO BE SURE 11Y TO DESTROY 110 ONION JOSEPH CHAPMAN TRIES METH ODS WITH MOST GRATIFY ING RESULTS. ! PLANTS . ILUD 10 THE R001J William P. Rid'ey Also Make Expe riment With the Same Result Will Mean Much to the Dairy Farmer of the State. Joseph Chapman, one of tue- lead ing farmers of the county, alwaysr pro gressive, alert and ready to embrace any idea that gives promise oi results in his campaign for better ag-lcul-ture, has tried a remedy for wild on ions that has proven to be a complete success. Through correspondence and inqui ries Mr. Chapman found that the -.g-riculutral experiment station at Per due, Ind., had tested the ramcd and found it a success. The original dis covery was made by a farmer who was experimenting along another line Fuel oil or crude oil is the remedy for the onion pest, one of the worst that a farmer, especially a dairy far mer, can have on his farm in this country. Last spring Mr. Chapman ordered several barrels and has given the remedy a thorough try out on his farm. He has absolutely conquered the wild onions, something that in the past has given him uo end of trouble and has cost him a good many dollars. The fuel or crude oil is applied with a spray, and the labor incident to the application is not great nor is tha cost very much considering the splendid results that are achieved. The test results are obtained before the plant is fully matured, but Mr. Chapman has found but few of the ouions at any stage of their life that can resist the application of the oil. At the suggestion of Mrs. Chapman, William P. Ridley, another very pro1 gressive farmer, tried the exjeu.nent and he reports that it has been high ly successful. When Mr. Chapman first took up with the United States depa-tment of i agriculture and other authorities on farming the question of the eriuiica-l tion of wild onions he received little i encouragement In fact, he was told in effect that practically all remedies' tried in this-country and in France' for a century had been failures. He is naturally delighted that at last he ' has found a means of ridding his pas tures of a menace. OUT TWO MONTHS NEGRO RECAPTURED TOM PERRY IS FOR THE THIRD TIME SENT TO THE WORK HOUSE. Tom Perry, a negro, who escaped from the county work house sever al months ago, was captured Wed day afternoon by Sheriff Griffin and carried to the county jail from which he will be sent back to the work house. He was sent up some time ago for house breaking and larceny and other charges. In all he had about three years to serve. This Is his sec ond escape from the road gang. The first time he was not out as long as his last escapade, and. was captured by Deputy John Fleming. He was put back In and was only in the toils of the law for a short time when he again made his escape. Officers have been scouring the country for him, but up until Wednesday had ne,ver been, able to lay their hands upon him. He was taken on the farm of Esq. Ballanfant at Culleoka. A curious coincidence is the fact that he was sent up for the first time for housebreaking and larceny In the city of Mt. Pleasant, and that the of ficer making the arrest was Walter Griffin, the present sheriff, who was the one who took him into custody Wednesday. Officers McLean, Har dison and Fleming assisted the sher iff in the search for the man. FINED HEAVILY FOR DRUNKENNESS IRISH TAYLOR AND BUDDY AD COCK SUBMIT THEIR CASES. Irish Taylor and Buddy Adcock, arrested for public drunkenness, were tried before Judge McKnight this morning, and were fined five dollars and costs each, amounting in all to $35.05 each. They submitted their cases. Sheriff Griffin was the arrest ing officer. TO COME TO GR in winter seaso LIST OF ATTRACTIONS A SPLEN DID ONE AND INCLUDES MANY GOOD SHOWS.

HUNDRED MERCURY TUBES TO GO UP T. E. Craig and Riddle Ragan have perfected plans for putting thermom eters with advertising on them in one hundred towns in the state. The instruments will be like the one that they have recently installed on the Phoenix National Bank Building. This thermometer has on its sides a large number of ads from the merchants of the city and presents quite an at tractive appearance. It is of undenia ble value as an advertising medium. The young men made quite a suc cess of this undertaking. They have every prospect of doing a large busi ness in this line.
