Sunday Afternoon PARTICULARS CAN NOT BE LEARNED Last Sunday morning about 8 oclock a dispatch from Helena Ark reached Columbia directed to Mr James Gar nett and signed J P Burks which readJ M Scott fatally shot come at onceMr Garnett was not at home being en route for Pineville and during the day nothing else was discussed About five oclock in the afternoon the sec ond message came stating that Mr Scott died at 230 oclock Monday Judge W W Jones for the family of the deceased wired Mr Burks to have the body shipped to this place and it will probably reach Camp bellsville this Tuesday night Mr Scott was a wellknown news paper man and at the time of his assas ination was City Editor of the Helena Ark World He was also wellknown in this section of Kentucky having been a writer on the Columbia Spectator and the Mountainer which was published at Somerset Like all the flesh he had his faults but he was a kindhearted man ever ready to lend his assistance to those in distress He was honest in all his transactions meeting his obliga tions promptly His untimely and man ner of death was generally regretted here where he had a large number of friends He leaves a wife and one child a sonabout five years old All the information we have is con tained in the following dispatch Little Rock Ark Aug 4A spe cial to the Gazette from Helena Ark says J M Scott city editor of the Helena World was found on the side walk this morning at 2 oclock Two bullets had entered his head and al though he lived a few hours after being found he was unable to make a statement So far no clue to the assassin existsA ago an attempt was made to kill Mr Scott He was attracted to the rear of his office by a noise and on approaching to ascertain the cause two shots were fired at him He began firing in return and his assailants fled He was not able to identify them Jt is generally believed that the kill ng was due to a personal quarrel and that it had no connection with the crusade of the World on the police department some months ago which forced the resignation of the chief of police who afterward attempted to commit suicide BURNING TRUTHS The large congregation at the Christ ian church last Sunday forenoon cer tainly heard a sermon worth listening to The Rev A R Kasey of the Methodist church was the speaker and tor almost three quarters of an hour he held the attention of his au dience in a way that was almost mar velous It may be an astounding fact to a great many persons but according to the Bible there are a large per cent of liars in the world to day who have not the truth in them and these liars are not all outside the church either John puts in this meaning Any man who saith he knows God and keepeth not Jiis commandments is a liar and the truth is not in him It is indeed a strange thing to see some meh live a lie and act a lie every day on the out side among their fellowmen when with in their very souls they know that Gods word tells them very plainly that such is the case v Rev Kaseys comparison of a worthless hound dog to a great many men was very appropriate and a better illustration of the subject could not have been portrayed The old lazy hound that would not run or let any of the rest of the pack get ahead of himbe cause he would jump on them and fight them back can be applied to men every where and a great many xight herein Columbia as for that matter There sure lots jpf two legged hoimotyin the world in the form of men who whe they see their fellowmen attain unto little success or portion in life they will jump on him and fight him down and do every thing in their power this hurt Such men know not thei Christ they are hypocrites and liars and the truth is not in them Such able expositions of the burning truths contained in the Bible as the one delivered by Rev Kasey upon this oc casion should cause men to examine their own hearts and see whether or not they are living in accordance with Johns view of the matter The discourse was powerful logical and con wincing and the depths of its meanin is unfathomable It is not my purpose to make meritorious mention of any person unless I believe he or she to be deserving of such but when a man has power and force of character sufficient to say what he believes is true and right then I think he deserves credit and praise F McL A UNIQUE SOCIAL tThe Ladies Aid Society of the Presbyterian Church conceived a novel wa of raising church funds and Tuesda night of last week at the home of Mis Minnie Triptett a large number of the residents of Columbia were made ac quainted with the idea At 8 oclock the home and yard wer brilliantly illuminated and one hou later there had assembled fully on hundred young people and many older persons of the community As the guests arrived they entered the parlor where hey were met bLcommittee of itftdiesllrs Geo Thomas Mrs W E Bradshaw an Miss Minnie Triplett who inspecte- their wearing apparel taxing each ac cording to the value of their garments The fines varied from one cent to five cents and the average to a person w about twenty cents In that way an the amount the fortune teller who looked hideous and who was located in a tent a few yards from the residence received the ladies raised over thirty dollars After every body had been taxed and had been made acquainte- with their future prospects Mrs Georgia Shelton being endowed at that time with the faculty of knowing what coming in the lives of each Miss Margaret Todd rendered a piano solo faultlessly Misses Martha Hancock and Lina Rosenfield sang beauti fully and Misses Katie Murrell and Ni na Marcum recited admirably Misses Nellie Follis Elizabeth Coy Mollie Flowers and Mary Triplett did themselves proud at the lemonade and punch bowl stand Taking it altogether it was the most enjoyable entertainment given in Columbia for years The members of the Columbia Brass Band volunteered their services and at intervals rendered some of their very best selections To them the ladies of the society desire to express their grateful thanks N M Tutt Plff against Rachel Hughes etc Deft Persons having claims against the es tate of John C Hughes deceased are hereby notified to

J W NEWMAN 7 s For Supt of Public Instruction M o WINFREY For Clerk Court of Appeals JOHN B CHENAULT In a private conversation with me in his office at the White House several months ago President Roosevelt opened his waistcoat and tapping himself oyer the heart said Small down in my heart I am a Benton Democrat The Rev Sam Small of Atlanta Ga made this statement in the course of an address on Signs of Political Times at the Wyandot Chautauque at Fair mount Park last night Mr Small then said that the Presi dent told him he became a member of 14circumstances trict over which there was a boss whoJ was absolute dictator Inorde8to se cure real representation for himself and his fellow citizens he entered politics on the Republican side because he knew thatif he were a Democrat he could npt get a hearing and finally was able to defeat the boss for a seat in the Legislature of the State of New York said theRev Mr Small President Roosevelt told me that if his district had not been so solidly Re publican he would have been a Demo crat saidthe Rev Mr Small Mr Small said that in a later inter view a few weeks ago the President told him that he absolutely would not be a candidate for reelection for two reasons 1 Because he wants to be a senator from New Yorkt2 combat the anti tnird term custom The President told me these things in interviews I had with him at the White House said Mr Small He told me that the man never lived that the American people would elect for a third term and that he did not intend to allow his friends to place him in the position of running for the presidency again in 1908 He said that the argu ment that he had rally been elected President but once had no force with him and that conditions remain the same as they are at present he will not be candidateWhen him what he intended to do after he retired from the presi dency he said that he intended if possi ble to be senator from the State of NewYork i Charles Warren Fairbanks will be the next Republican candidate for the presidency and the convention will be held in Kansas City said Mr Small William H Taft cant carry his own State of Ohio Senator Foraker con trols Ohio and he will not allow it to go for Taft Taft is only popular in the Western states where the people idolize Roosevelt In the South and East he has no strength He can not carry New York or Goimecticut or any oPthe Eastern sta airyho legationi1t1t re for his nomination The convention will be held in Kan as City because the RooseveltTaft t forces want it held there They will fill the city with Oklahomas and Kan sans and other Westerners who are strong Roosevelt and Taft men But Charles Warren Fairbanks will be elected because he can carry th East where the conservative business interests are supporting him and be cause he wills Y the South Not a federal officeholder will be allowed in the conventions in the South and not tone will be sent as a delegate to the convention Unless some dark horse appears before the convention Fair banks will be the Republican nominee Foraker Knox and Cannon are candidtesMr noti thinks Bryan will be the next Democratic nominee The East t ern Democrats want another candidate but they will not be strong enough defeat Bryan at the convention toII says The next race for the presidency the United States will be between Charles Warren Fairbanks and Wil- Liam Jennings Bryan The abpve article shows three things that can not be doubted as follows That Senator Fair banks is not only a Presidential possibility but a probability that the President is a politician close ly related to many others j throughout the country who would be Democrats if that parI ty was in the ascendency that he is not so scrupulous as to the j third term policy as he is actually afraid that he could not be elected In justice to the high ti J o ition which he holds and the high regard the American people have foorhim and his position he- s1iotHftot have unbosomed himself at this moment and introduced the real Roosevelt The fact is that he is not likely to be reelected and not much danger of pushing his choice over the Republicans in the next National Convention Taft is now in the height of his glory a dhe is a long way from the nomination While Fairbanks may not be the winner yet he is a strong man in the race When the case of Caleb Pow ers was called at Georgetown last week the defendent filed an affidavit charging the presidingc Judge J E Robbins unfairness and prejudice etc etc j and asked that he vacate the bench Judge Robbins in rendering his decision denied every allegation in the affidavit but he 1 was glad to get rid of the unpleasant responsibility and therefore declined to try the case Judge Robbins decision wasi a surprise to the defense as was expected
