beautifully dec orated and had special musical pro grams The music at the Methodist church was very fine and at the Epis copal the choir sang some fine anthems and their rendition of the musical part of the regular Episcopal Easter service was excellent It is not to be omitted that the bright flowers and light color ed dresses after the dark winter shades iu evidence with the attendance at all the churches was a pleasing relief and these with the more serious choirs songs music and sermons proclaimed the theme of the resurrection Next Congress Democratic It is clearly evident that the Democrats

the teachers be cause of her splendid deportment Miss Ligon is a very pretty girl with large blue eyes She is 15 years of age weighs 125 pounds and is 5 feet 4 inches in height She has curly light brown hair and a slight impediment of speech When last seen she wore a mixed gray cloth suit and tucked white flannel shirt waist The girl is a daughter of E II Ligon of Fulton Ky who arrived in Nash villo yesterday accompanied by his nephew Herbert Carr and every effort has been made to locate her but with out success Mr Ligon is at theTulane and is anxious for his daughter to re turn to the

their roots The purchaser of the crop sees to it that his fruit is not I stolen The road commissioners have i no bother about that And although i the sate is by auction it brings in con i 4 I

until there is a row about 12 inches wide with plants not more than six inches apart After the row is filled in this manner keep the runners off as in the hill and hedge row method Mural World How
