WARREX YRS MAGGIE ELLISON f Proprss GEO W WILSON Lessee and Editor PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY f SENTIMENT OF TilE COUNTY The most absurd statement yet f made in the contentions of either F side in tha branch court business t is that of the Fulton papers tot the effect that the nine people ofI the McFadden school house neighborhood t who adopted a set of J what it pleased them to callres olutions represented the sent t iment of the county Wherein they represent the sentiment of this county is not discernible at k this distance We have it upon s the best authority that two of- I the aforesaid people are bona fide t residents of Hickman county 1 1whilea third is lately returnedr from a position with the state at Eddyville We do not deny that fa1- i s r JOe 7c8e they are representative of Ful tonif Fulton chooses to have it so and it doeshut we do jnost emphatically deny that they are representative of any other por tion of the county Fulton has always exaggerated her importance aud tried to impress strang ers as being something but she cannot fool the home folks If she takes in the population of the Tennessee side and Reedville to swell her population so she cnn have more people than the county seat strangers dont know it and Fulton pats herself on the back If she wants to boom the place as a health resort the news of the fatalities caused by no system of drainage and the fever laden atmosphere is suppressed until the victims are caught If she desires to boom the taxable property of the town the figures are specially prepared by an expert accountant and she makes t a great showing But it is all a bluff When the tax collector makes his appearance the high =I anti mighty boomers take to the woods and lun t tooJlll i frt It un tai1 threatened withi t suiti iby the

precinctcommendi her fur her work and the gladsome new s iis heralded throughout the land that Fulton is fully vindi cated that McFaddens school house neighborhood has voiced the sentiment of 1500

election of the future she will not be able to deliver the goods as she has done in the past although vindicated lby the representative citizens of Mc Faddens school house In court ty politics at least she has played her last card The Man from ilcFaddens School House or the Returned Convicts Restoration to Power and Prestige by the author of Old Dave and other thrilling tales is n new story whichwe hope soon to see in serial form Its author a well known Fulton county litterateur has rained some prominence in various ad joining states by his realistic pen pictures and stories with a flavor of the soil upon which they were written but he does not live in any of them now The story will have its beginning some years back when the hero is sent to the penitentiary for a crime commit

him to his old home whew he rapidly rises to affluence and soon becomes the embodi ment of the sentiment of the entire countyin fact when he speaks all citizens will stand in reverential awe of the

for the story or its ver satile author ailia nt sayeth not It is excruciatingly painful to learn that the Couriers non sense of lust week was not ap predated by the Fulton public We had hoped to make n hit with our article on Fulton and Its Worksy but since the old reliable nevarmisses tire editor of the Commercial has drawn his unerring blue pencilif he has one through it and labelled it nonsense we must perforce abide by the verdict The cha grin we feol at Fultons lack of appreciation of our article is al most unendurable The truth is often stranger than fiction and it sometimes hurts but we never heard it called nonsense before Andj then to a large ex tent the decision is affected by whose ox is gored However the Commercial roan should be a good judge of nonsense A man is gen erally
