estimable Christian lady took Its fight Tuesday morning the 19th inst there was moved from the social walks of life a pure and spotless woman one who was loved by a large circle of friends and worshipped by four loving children and a devoted husband Born and reared In Columbia testi mony upon testimoney could be given of her pure life here After her marriage to Mr G F Jones she became a resident of Jamestown where she lived happily sur rounded for more than twentyfive was a long sufferer but no word of complaint ever fell from her lips Born of Christian parents H G and Eliza Atkins she was taught to believe that God did all things for the best and while her body was sorely afflicted she never lost faith In the Giver of all that is good looking to Him for a brighter and peaceful home beyond the skies As an evidence of her goodness the rearing of four high minded dutiful children Is the best earthly evidence that she was dllligent in her admonitions for good It is said that she never received an angry word from one of them and their con duct has been such as to require no words of reproof from her When friends separate one going on a long journey with the hope of meeting again the skakiiig of the hand is a serious thing and the word farewell hard to say but to take leave of a dear mother though she leaves evi dence that her spirit has gone to a better world no pen can picture the an guish No sadder words were ever written than mother is dead and it would take hearts of stone to not overflow with sorrow when such an afflict on comes to their family The devotion of the bereaved husband and his four children to this wife and mother has never been surpaSSed- so watchful were they to see that every earthly wish was gratified Her children are all members of the church and while it is impossible for them to ever see their mother again in the flesh they can so live that when lifes troubles are over they can meet her in that heavenly home where there is no sorrow and where separations are services were conducted- at Jamestown Wednesday afternoon byEld Z T Williams of the Christian church who spoke in the tenderest sympathy of the life and character of

near and thegroomelect thought be detected some kind of a sad expression in the eyes of the lair young thing and right he was She approached him one evening just as the Western sun was setting In the Western part of the West and looking up Into his tender red eyes she said William I have a secret untildI have to tell you It is this Willie my father served a term in the Tennessee State Prison It was no fault of mine- Willie and do you still love me Glad you brought up this confession business said Willie I too have a secret and then he looked sad Mabel Willies white lips faltered lmy father

from Chattanooga Tenn has been a most remarkable woman in business as well as the socia- life of Rhea county Tenn where she was born and reared and has an Inter esting history During the war Mrs Sawyer raised and equipped a company of young girls which was mustered into the Confederate army Mrs Saw yer was Miss Mary McDonald of Ross county She was at the outbreak of the war a young woman in her teens and the belle of Rhea county At the Federal forces began encroaching Southward the original idea entered the mind of Miss McDonald to raise a company of young girls for the Confed eracy This was in 1862 and she lost no time in carrying this Idea into practical effect organizing a company of something over 100 girls She was elected Captain of the company which was actually mustered Into the service at Washidgton Rhea county Tenn by Cant W T Darwin of General Braggs army CU Most of the young women realized that the company was organized more as a bit of pastime but Capt McDo- nalds foresight had long before seen where such a body could be of practi cal value and no sooner were they mustered in than she began putting them through such drills teaching how to dress wounds and was just ginning to receive equipment from the Confederacy the use of which she was setting about to teach her compa ny whenthe Federals entered Chatta Steadman sent a certain Capt Wild up to4Rneacounty who very unIgallantry arrested the entire compa ny including the Captain and brought them to Chattanooga where they were arranged before Gen Steadman in his headquarters in what is now the local guards armory Here the young women were requested to take the oath of allegiance to the Federal Government Some of them were a trifle unruly and Gen Steadman was given more than one sample of Rbea county sass but when he finally threatened to send the entire company to Ohio the girls urged by anxious relatives all took the oath and after dinner at the old Planters House returned to their homes A number of women now residing In Chattanooga were members and of ficers in this company and entertain pleasant recollections of the time when the girls of Rhea county started to turn the tide of the war in favor of the Confederacy Remember This A newspaper in any town may ex pend all of its efforts its time its space and Interest in the attempt to upbutld the town but unless its ef forts are backed by the business men of the town Its work may be counted as nigh useless When a stranger picks up your town paper he will glance for a moment over your news column and then turn to the advertising pages It he finds its columns bare he sets it down that there is nothing in the town or that its citizens do not appreciate the ef forts of the paper and that they are just as liable to not appreciate his own efforts were he to locate there You never saw a town yet that ever amounted to a hill of beans without the assistance of a newspaper This being a factwe would also remind you that a newspapes cannot live without the assistance of the town The sooner business men find that in supporting their local paper they are also building up their own business for the businesss man and the newspaper and the town In supporting your local paper you are not only assisting your town as a busl ness center but your newspaper as an enterprise and as a medium to the out side world but your own business as well It is as much the duty of the business man to support his town pa per as it is for the town paper to sup 7port and expand the interest of his townNew Haven Leades runningIdoctors

pigs to weigh 200 pounds piece and sell them at a better price 1per pound than if older Pigs make tat and flesh at less cost during the first six months of their lives than ever after Up to six months pigs rightly fed can almost be seen to grow from day to day- When the young pigs are old enough they should be allowed the run of a pasture field where clover is pretty thick Turn them loose in the field with the sow If the fiela has plenty of good fresh running water in it and ample shade for the animals they will do much better and not suffer drawbacks from the heat The sow should be fed freely on milk slops with bran mixed in it and when the pigs are old enough let them cat with the mother Liberal feeding of this mixture should not be turned Into wasteful practice Give only as much as they will eat up clean at a time Feeding twice a day is better than heavy feeding once a day With this bran milk and clover ration the pigs can get along wIthout any trouble for two months or more and they will grow rapidly during the whole time when they are two mouths old a little corn may be fed to them give them about one ear a day along with the bran and buttermilk slops The corn adds to their fat and strength and the liberal feeding of clover keeps the system in excellent conditionAt end of four month the pigs should be old enough to stand heavier and more heatingidiet and itis well to substitute for the corn bran and milk slops a diet of bran and cornmeal softened with water and mixed to the stillness of a dough Feed this to them twice a day and give them as muchas they will cat up clean at a time Then turn them loose in the clover field as before and let them eat inaddltion all the grass that they will Flnaly during the last month of their lives confine them in close but perfectly clean quarters and fatten them off with cornmeal and bran Give them twice as much of the former as the latter and let them eat liberally of the mixture At the end of the six months they should be fine fat pigs weighing from 200 to 240 pounds each and every pound will represent a good profit Ex Poulury Tips Watch tor hen lice on chicks oil or grease the heads Never nail a roust down

knocked a youngster down In the road in defence of her brood its father killed the miscreant the owner burned his barn and horses and a lynching mob was organized The old theory was that exercise was necessary for liens Thus we were ad vised to throw the whole grain Into the straw and make the hens scratch for It People sceth think this theory was true because It ought to be Experiments at the

Bryan Altgeld and Towne at the Columbus Banquet BRYAN OJf JEFFERSON At this time when the money changers arc in absolute control of the Government and are shaping the nation s financial policy in their own terests without regard lor the wel fare of the people at large we need to recall Jeffersons scathing arraignment of those who demand tbesurrender in to their hands of the soveign nnctions of governmentHe out that the safety of the people lay in a policy that would sir re thebanks out of the governing businessAt time when corporate mo nopoly is fast extinguishing industrial independence we need a revival of the Jeffersonian spirit which demands a government administered according to the doctrine of equal rights to all and special privilege to none At this time when commercialism is searing the conscience the nation when the worship of mammon is lead ing the people to ignore inalienable rights when the ideals bought with blood and sacrifice are about to be bar tered away for the specious and delu sive promises of empireat this time I repeat we need to have our faith in man as man and our love for man as brother rekindled by the memory of this mighty patriot philosopher and

decision of the Federal Courtin this State in the Lackey Election case Last year when the Repub Beaus were mak 1g8uchu howl about partisan courts and denounc ing the Democratic party for the actions of some Judges of the Cir cuit Courts in this State they were seeking to bring about the punishment of every Democrat who openly resisted their aggressive methods and by this means profit in the election last fall Accordingly an indictment was found in the Federal Court against 0 E Lackey of Middlesboro fo bribing negroes colored men men of African decent and not white men from voting in the State election in 1809 Mr Lackey wa arraigned before that bundle 0 purityJudge Evans and was convicted on the foregoing charge MA violation of the 15th amend ment to the Constitution as they claimed He was fined 1000and an imprisonment several months aleo applied Others were tried forsimilar offenses and convicted At this juncture Democrats were informed throughout the State tn standoff from the colored man in the scramble for votes and it did prevent Democrats from interfer ing with the aforesaid voters Now one of the highest Courts in the land decides that Lackey did not violate the 15th amendment and orders his immediate discharge There is not la doubt about the correctness of this decision for no one seeks to control bymoney or otherwise the suffrage of any voter on account of race color or previous condition of servitude Money is presented to a voter be cause the voter places his suffrage on the market and the Higher Court decides virtually that it is no greater sin for a Democrat to buy a vote than it is for a Repub lican This decision eliminates the fear with Democrats for Fed oral prisons and places them on equal footing with Republicans who bay the votes of colored peo pie with impunity It is no less crime to buy a white voter than it is to buy a colored voter yet Re publican purifiers attempted in this State to prosecute and did prosecute Democrats for giving a uegro a 500 bill to stay away from the polls and at the same time make no complaint when a white nail received the tempting cash for his vote This decision will cripple the expectations of a few Republican politicians in this Statewho sought to place a large per cent of their floating element beyond the reach of Democrats to hide them behind the 15th amendment of the Constitution and then enter the race in the scramble for supremacy with the white floaters All floaters float alike race color or previous con dition of servitude cuts no figure and if a man offers his vote for salt
