DRIVER CAR INSTANTLY KILLED Two Others Succumb to Injuries Dur ing Afternon, While Fourth Mem ber Party Still Lives All Local Boys and Well Known. (Prom Monday's Daily Herald.) Three are dead and another lies in critical condition at the King's Daugh tH8 hospital as the result of one of tli moBt costly automobile wrecks In tliK history of the city, which occur red shorly before noon Sunday on the Nashville pike, when Perry Bennett, driving a Ford touring car, lost con tiol of the machine, which plunged over atwenty-five foot embankment just opposite the entrance of Pillow Park. -.The dead are Perry Bennett, aged t.wenty-six pears, a valued mem tier of.'jfaie composing force of The MeralUrJEarl Hale, moving picture op erator t the Vogue Theatre, and, litiiies.'impson, who was engaged in the contracting business. The fourth member : of the party, Cal Johnson, was seriously injured, but Is reported to have rested well last night. According to Wade Cathey, an eye witness, he was walking toward his inline tti Riverside at 11:50 o'clock when h noted a car approaching at a iapni rate of speed. Mr. Cathey de 1 !.nedj'lie paid little attention to the "ir loathing car until it was right !'lm film, and when it appeared to In m tlrat it was about to run him down he stepped quickly to the side of the it, and the car swerved sharply to " mher side of the road, and was go 1 ' 1 K at uch a rapid rate of speed it " s impossible to get it back into the "iitl before it plunged off the bank. 1 1 ctithey declares the back end of 'iie dnSth car brushed his arm just 1 'f'JiH'U took the fatal plunge. 1 eaYjrjg the road the car ran along "e Mde ()f the embankment for a dis- 'ine of some twenty-five feet before '' 1 lashed into a telephone pole, and here Mr. Bennett was instantly killed, having suffered a fractured skull, and several broken bones. He was also internally injured and never spoke. After, striking the telephone pole, the car caromed off, and with Increased force plunged into the office building of the Simpson Brick Company. Both Simpson and Hale were rendered un conscious, but Johnson apparently was not seriously injured when first aid reached him. However, he was pinned beneath wreckage of the car, and it was necessary to remove a wheel to extricate him. Both Simpson and Hale suffered fractured skulls and were otherwise injured and in a manned which would likely have prov ed fatal. Mr. Cathey, seeing the wreck rush ed to the city to summon medical aid, and the wounded men were rushed to the King's Daughters hospital and upon examination physicians held out no hope for the rocevery of either Simpson or Hale, but declared John- soii -would live' he having had several teeth knocked out, his jaw broken and sustaining several bad cute about the face. Mr. Hale regained consciousness after he had been at the hospital a short time, and greeted his friends who called to see him, but In terrible agony he shortly relapsed and died about 3:30. Simpson lived but a short time longer. The bodies were taken to local un dertaking parlors and prepared for burial and taken to their respective homes, all of them within two blocks in South Columbia, and last night the death watch kept in three saddened homes. That entire section of the city mourned, and sorrowing and sym pathizing neighbors by the hundreds called upon the bereaved families. The wreck here was the sole topic of conversation Sunday afternoon and night! the city was profoundly shock ed. Since the wreck there have been hundreds of apparently ill founded, or groundless rumors in circulation as to the manner in which the accident oc curred, and just what was responsible Blood Is the Sap of Life; Keep It Pure You grow by good blood as a tree jrruws by sap.

Start enriching " your Wood with S.S.S. to day, and write about your condition to fklef .Medj- cal AdMsoiy S3S Swtft for it. An effort has been made Vy this reporter to trace these rumors and reports to their source, but in many instances this has been impossi ble. It is known thai the young men had been for a ride. Mr. Bennett and Simpson had but a short time before the accident returned from Santa Fe, where Mr. Bennett called upon young lady, who declared there was nothing wrong with him when he left her home about 9 o'clock. It is known that Mr. Simpson was with Mr. Ben nett at Santa Fe, and they returned to Columbia together in Mr. Simpson's automobile, which was the one wreck ed. Mr. Simpson not being a driver Mr. Bennett was at the wheel. At San ta Fe, Mr. Bennett had made an en gagement with this young lady to re turn to see her Sunday night, saying he would remain but he had to take Mr. Simpson back to town. It is sup posed that when they reached Colum bia they ran across Hale and John son, who reside in the same neigh borhood, and invited them to go for a ride. They had driven out the Nash ville pike, perhaps to the end of the asphalt paving and were upon the re tur ntrip when the fatal accident oc curred. Physicians who attended the wound ed men declare the reports that they were intoxicated, were evidently false. All three of these physicians as well as nurses say they did not detect the odor of liquor upon the breath of the wounded men. Mr. Johnson, the only one of the party who is not dead up until this tirrte, has not been able to give an account of it. It has been re ported, however, that one of the men on the rear seat, believeing Mr. Ben nett was about to lose control of the car attempted to grab his arm, causing him to swerve the car off the embank ment. Mr. Bennett was a son of the late Richard Bennett, and for several years had been engaged on The Herald as a printer and pressman, and was among the most valued employes. He was widely known, and beloved. He was generous to a fault, and perhaps did not have an enemy in the world. The funeral of Mr. Bennett will be conducted at 4:30 o'clock this evening at the South .Columbia Methodist church, and members of The Herald force will Berve as pall bearers. In terment will be in Rose Hill ceme tery. The funeral, of Mr. Hale was con ducted at 2:30 o'clock this afternoon, while the funeral of Mr. Simpson will be conducted at the same hour on Tuesday afternoon. 1 ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR SHERIFF The Herald is authorized to an nounce E.

BUT TENNESSEE HARD TO BEAT While Some Remarkably , Advanced Farming Sections Were Visited He Did Not Find Any , With Natural Advantages Above Middle Tennessee (From Saturday's Dally Herald.) Prof. James Minic Dean, district agent for the division of extension, who returned on Thursday from a five weeks' tour of eight states investigat ing agricultural conditions and the work of the division of extension, de clared today that he was better pleas ed with the work that had been done and was being done in Tennessee through the University of Tennessee, the division of extension and the farm organizations than he had ever been. Considering the fewer agents here and the larger territory and perplexity of problems to be solved, Prof. Dean feels that in comparison with the oth er states, he has a right to feel proud of the achievements In Tennessee. Prof. Dean inspected agricultural conditions over a period of four weeks in the states of Virginia, West Virgin ia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jer sey, Connecticutt and Massachusetts and Georgia. He made the return trip by boat from Boston, Mass., to Savan nah, Ga. He went to the division of extension in several states, asked for outstanding counties in agricultural development and extension work and then visited the county agents in those counties making a personal survey of what they were doing. "The trip has been well worth the time and cost," declared . Prof. Dean. It was most helpful in every way and gives one new ideas. Of course there Is much to learn from a study of condi tions elsewhere and I saw some re markably fine agriculaural sections. However, nature has not blessed any section, in my judgment, more than it has in Middle Tennessee and espee tally this blue grass basin."

TAXPAYERS ARE URGED TO MAKE COMPLAINTS NOW TOO LATE TO ADJUST MATTERS AFTER BOARD OF EQUALIZA TION ADJOURNS. TO HOLD SESSION EVERY DAY Assessor Williams Insists That If Any Errors Have Been Made They Shall Be Corrected Before It Is Too Late Third District Monday. (From Saturday's Daily Herald.) If the taxpayers of Maury county want to know how they have been as sessed for this yetir, or have any com plaints to make or would secure any informtaton about their taxes they are advised and urged by Tax Assessor Webb Williams to appear before the board of equalization which will be In session -at the court house from Mon day on. "I wish that the taxpayers would take advantage of the opportunity that they have now to make their com plaints, go before the board and attend to this matter and not wait until it Is too late," declared Mr. Williams. The Assessor continued: "The board on Monday will take up the third district and then on from one district to the other. I am sure some errors have been made despite our efforts to avoid them. They cannot be corrected un less the taxpayers take advantage of this opportunity and go before the board. "After my assessments have been approved by the board it. will be too late to change them. I do not claim to have made a perfect assessment therefore I want my figures examined and if they appear to be wrong I can assure the taxpayers that they will be corrected by the board." The board is making rapid progress. Chairman Ballanfant insists that no time be wasted, but that the work be transacted as expeditiously as possi ble. In three days two districts, the first and second, have been disposed of, but this rate will hardly be main tained. The third district will be tak en up Monday. It is hardly expected that the board can finish its labors un der two weeks and it has always here tofore taken from three to four weeks. wny Suffer? Frank Sargent Ends Own Life At Williamsport (From Saturday's Daily Herald.) The inquest held over the body 6f Frank Sargent, who was found dead Friday afternoon at the home of his brother, J. W. Sargent, in the Wil liamsport section, developed the fact that Mr. Sargent came to his death by his own hand, he having taken strych nine. No cause was known for his rash act, and no intention had been given that he intended to end his life However, a short time before he took the fatal dose, Mr. Sargent had exhib ited a small vial to his sister-in-law telling her that it contained poison, but she did not infer that he contemplated taking it, and thought nothing further of it until he was found dead in an out bouse when he was called for dinner. He told members of the family that he tsught he would go to a small of fice in the yard and taks a nap before the noon hour, and the family thought he was there sleeping until his life less body was found.
