R L Tally has just closed a good meeting at this place During the meeting there were twentyodd conversions and the majority of these were received into the Church of Christ er Methodist Church at Breeding Bro Pace and Bro Tarter also assissted in rhe meeting Brother Pace rendering ome fine music r Bro Tally has now gone to other fields but 1am sure the people of Breeding and the surrounding country will never forget him The oldand young alike have learned to love this good man who worked so hard for them for ten days He has been a friend to all saint and sinner alike and they all realize it and appreciate it Though they may not have said so in so many words their faces have shown it He leas made the people feel that it is real ly worth while tp live right even if there was to be no hereafter that it pays to be good even in this world but vo one who has looked into his honest face and heard his earnest words can doubt that there is a hereafter though they may not understand or realize just what it means to be a Christian yet they do know that he through some power unknown to them has learned the great truth Ihave thought while he was withus and since he has gone that even the Christian people do not realize the sac rifice he is making when he leaves his family and goes out to do the great work he is doing No doubt there are ether positions which he is qualified to hold that would not require so much physical exertion and pay a great deal more in dollars and cents than he is MOW receiving and yet he leaves his wife and children and goes out to do this great work for humanity How many of us would do the same thing How many of us would leave eur home even for a short time to engage in some work for the betterment ef the human race How few of us alas do even in our homes and in our ewn neighborhod the little things we could and should do from a worldly standpoint to make others happy Yet he devotes his whole time to this work Can we not then even though we are rot Christians do something to make thers happy Surely such a life is an inspiration to any one Personaly I owe Bro Tally a debt I can never repay and I wish to say to all who may read this If you ever have an opportunity to hear him preach by all meahs2 listen to him he will tell you something worth while and will tell it in a plain sensible manner and you cannot fail to be benefitted by it Even from an educational standpoint kis sermons are interesting but when we realize that the words we hear are coming from an honest heart it means more than mere historical facts It means that Bro Tally is interested in you and in me and is preaching for us and has the interests of the human family at heart As his blessings have rested upon the peoplein and around Breeding so may Gods blessings rest upon him and his family is the wish of A Sinner New Livery v Mr Hugh Richardson has opened a firstrclass livery and feed stable in Columbia and is occupying the barn on the side street leading

impossible to give a cor rect statement of a difficulty indulged in by darkies as witnesses refuse to talk and in writing of the Frazer Williams trouble which occurred last Sunday afternoon we give it according to the information gathered from several who were near the scene John Frazer keepsa little store on the Burkesville pike in the suburbs of Columbia Press Williams Logan Bomar and perhaps several others- w re drunk and they visited Frazers place of busin s and undertook to take charge of things Frazer ordered them to leave his house and all left but Press who it is said undertook to bully Frazer who was standing behind his counter Press made a demonstration when Frazer drew his revolver and commenced shooting Press was hit three time in the arm leg and breast but the shot in the breast only pene trated his clothing Soon after the shooting Press rode to town and his wounds which are not fatal were dressed by Dr R Y Hindman- If what we have heard is correct Frazer will be acuqitted on examining trialThere is not a doubt but several dar kies and perhaps some white persons are bootlegging whisky about this town and they ought to be caught It is said that several trips to New Hope are made weekly by parties who go for no other purpose but to bring in whisky They convey it in suit cases and it does look like with proper diligence they could be apprehended- It is further said that white young men of this town go and deal with the vendors The best evidence that this last statement is a fact is that several of them have been seen on the streets in a drunken condition There is a law agaist public drunken ness and the town Marshal should ar restevery man he Sin that condi tion and take him before the County Judge who will require the offender to give an account of himself and where he gets his liquor Got Three Months Mr N B Miller formerly a resident of Columbia a United States Pension Examiner and located at Springfield Mo has just succeeded in landing a man

in the meeting from the be ginning until the close Althoug there were not many additions to the church yet there was an awakening among the Christian people of the town and the results accomplished in this channel can only be determined in the great be yondThe Rev BM Currie the pastor who conducted the meeting preached thirty sermons in all and they were all goodones according to the estimate placed upon them by the writer who had the pleasure of hearing all of the evening discourses with the exception of one The Speaker invariably went down into the depths of his subjects andextracted therefrom truths in a forcible and fearless manner I have always admired a minister of the Gos pel who preaches the truth regardless of fear or favor but everyone knows that there are preachers who will deliver sugar coated sermons especially adapted to certain members of their congregations if they be present and as Rev Currie put it upon one occasion they have to be smoothed the right way all the time or they will get mad and pout Rev Currie is especially interested in the salvation of the little ones he preached a special sermon to them and he would gather them together at a great many of the services and have them sing songs and the little voices in sweet accord were beautiful and in spiring to the older people The song service was one of the attractive features of the meeting Misses Ina Hulse and Jennye McFarland presided at the organ alternately and it was through their efforts that the choir loft was fill ed with excellent singers at almost every service Fred McLean If you want

lawyer and learned that since 1891 a fortune of 600 000 had been awaiting himGold schmidts uncle having died in Africa and left hint his entire fortune The moral in this is always read the ads for they are news of the best kind Epidemic of Ye gs Students of crime and the causes for it can find plenty to do now in figuring out why there has been an epidemic of bank robberies during the last few weeks Hardly a day but one reads in the daily papers of the blowing of some bank safe or the robbery of a postoffice The out break of crime is not confined to anyone section of the country but seems to be general Safe blowing is an occupation that is followed by certain crimi nals as a profession and they are designated as yeggmen the origin of which term is not clear Usually the word is shortened to yegg and every policeman prison official and criminal knows What a yegg is To be a yeggman it is nececcary that a man be a safeblower A burglar is not a yegg nor yet is a secondstory man a yegg The criminals and police have these nice dictinc tions in title which orginated with the criminals Yeggs have blown safe in several places during the last few days and only Thursday five men blew a bank safe in an Illi nois town Later a posse cornered the yeggs and shot three of them during a battle that ensued afterIthree probably will go to the penitentiary for about ten years In New York two well known criminals are under arrest charg ed with robbing the postoffice at Richmond Va of some 80000 ofIthese criminals has stolen hun dreds of thousands of dollars yet it has been difficult to prove any particular crime on him and he has usually escaped after a trial The high price of living may have caused the yegg to get busy with nitroglycerine and drills in order to make both ends meet But it is strange that there havet been so many big robberies in so short a time Most of the robberies have been committed in small towns where the guards are few and where policemen do not patrol the street at night This is in accord with the modernx trend the yeggs finding cities unsafeFrankfort has escaped a visita tion of the yeggs yet they have been in Kentucky for a safe was blown recently in Danville It It is well to keep a sharp watch for the criminals seem to be at large in the country Frankfort News Do You Know That C R Hutchison is handling k good line of family

considered him be fore to take him more seriously than they haveever taken him to realize that he is altogether the most startling figure who has appeared in the world since Napoleon Bonaparte a circumstance not without significance and pr r tent He must be a poor American whose heart does not glow with pride at the unwonted honors bestowed upon this representative of his country and swell with ex ultant admiration at the splendid way he is carrying himself It is too late if it were not person ally offensive to talk about self exploitation The incident in Caire Was wholly characteristic

confidence on the part of busi publicIa floating editorial When a man in search of a man or a business location goes into a town and finds everything brim full of hope and enthusiasm of the pros pects of the place and all earnest ly at work to build it up he soon becomes imbued with the same spirit and as a result he drives down stakes and goes to work with the same interest When however he goes to a town where everyone expresses doubt and apprehension for the future prosperity of the place moping about and indulging in mournful complaints he naturally feels that it is no place for him and he at once shakes the dust from his feet While he pulls out with all possible speed for some other place Consequently try to make a live interprising town out of the town in which you live When you are

still in the Dingleham household Then Mrs Dingleham put her arms r around her husbands neck and said Henry will you please for lastnnight or this morjiing when you came home It was foolish of me but I

proceedings last Wednesday at Nashville in the Cooper cases were revolutionary in na ture and sensational in develop ment Their effect will we fear crlthecontinue at blood heat the fiery passions which have for sometime distracted Tennessee IThe decision of the Tennessee Supreme Court in the Cooper cases following the killing by the latter father and son of former Senator Edward Car mack will we think be generally approved The Carmack killing divided the city of Nashville and the whole State of Tennessee into two camps respectively the sympathizers of the slayers and the slain i The exact facts of the killingVill probably always be a matter of dispute It is not open to contradiction however that Carmack who was the lead er of the temperance element in Tennessee had been threatened by Col Duncan Cooper a prominent politician of the opposite faction that Carmack refused to be silenced by Col Cooper and that a day or two later the two Cpopers met Carmack on the street and the latter was killed Obviously the first step toward this sad tragedy was taken by Col Cooper The Carmack sympathizers affirm that the case was one of deliberate assassina tion The fatal shots were fired by Robin Cooper a oung man barely past his majority The Cooper family is of prominence and standing in Nashville and in view of thisfact and the divided public sentiment few people imagined the jury would agree Nevertheless a jury composed entirely o f farmers heard the cases without bias and rendered a verdict holding both father and son to have been guil tynot of coldblooded murder but of homicide A sentence of twenty years confinement in the penitentiary was imposed The case went to the Supreme Court with feeling still running high but they appeared to have been consid red with strict im partiality The sentence against the elder Cooper is affirmed the sentance against Robin Cooper was reversed There may be some difference of opinion concerning the r e versal of judgment against Robin Cooper but after all the facts seem clear that while the latter actually fired the shots he was present upon the scene with the primary purpose of protecting draggedLess than two hours after the decision by the Supreme Court it was announced that Gov Pat terson had nullified the decree of the court by granting a full pardon to both of the Coopers This ends these pro ecutions but it will by no means end the epi sodeGov Patterson has always been a close political ally of Cot Cooper and a political and personal enemy of Mr Carmack He had an interview with the two Coop ers just before the killing and while no one should accuse him of having knowledge of the kill knowtthe homicidal passionsthat blazed in the breast of the elder Cooper Now he upsets the verdict of the Tennessee courts
