Specula tors see the approach of the im pending storm and to get a part of the benefit are organizing so called Grain and Live Stock Com mission Companies asking farm er to buy stock at 1 per share

Sunday morning about 8 oclock It started from a defective flue in a house occupied by Geo Cowles as a residence and owned by Mrs Thus Sproat Another house close l y also owned by Mrs Sproat occupied by Lindsay Stout was also burned Most of the furniture iin both houses was saved Mrs Sproat had 8500 insurance on the two houses which leaves her to bear a heavy part ot the loss as the houses were worth 800 to 1000 each Gold Trading Stamps are Rood as gold Ellisou gives them with cash purchases THE RIVER J f 1 The rive his been rising durr ing the past two weeks and is dfpetlast spring According to the government report no relief can be looked for for two or three days yet The Mississippi is fis ing and will continue to rise while the Tennessee Cumberland and Missouri are falling and a stand in the Ohio for Ev ansville is forecasted for today while it will be two days before the crest reaches Paducah The government forecast re ceived here yesterday says The river will continue to rise at Evansville during the next 12 to 24 hours come to a stand thenfall Ac Padueah it will coutinue to rise at a much decreased rate luring the next two days The maximum stage at Padueah will probably be as high as 415 or 42 feet At Cairo the rise will cont tinue for at least four days The rate of rise will fall of materially during the next 24 hours The t Wrest stage at Cairo will probably he between 47 and 48 feet However general rains are indicated for this section during the next 24 to 35 hours and if heavy the maximum stage at Cairo may ex ceed 48 feet The Mississippi between Chester and Cairo will continue to rise for the next four days The Tennessee river is now falling and will continue tofallThe lower portions of West Hicknian are now under water audit is thought that it will be flooded before the river comes to a stand So far the railroad is intact andat the depot it is thought that there will not be sufficient warer to cause them to move to East Hickman as was the case last spring The great est damage will be done in West Hickman which was wholly unprepared for the invasion Every inch rise now puts that portion of town lying under the hill so much deeper underMir titer rVI1 peoplG tiinllw eve1to use skills to get toand froth their + homesIj Great interest is necessarily manifested in the river and it is closely watched by all In the most authentic sources it is be lieved that the water will not leach a point equal in height to the rise of last spring BRO WNSVILLE NEWS CrystalTuesday Rob Daugherty was in Browns ville last week on

i y Why lies Afraid of Wafer Standing on the bunk of the river Sun day watching old Father ot Waters as he rushed madly past them a group of prominent business men of Hickman were discussing previous visitations of high water tho damage done and the provable extentand damage of the pres ent rise After the subject had been pretty well exhausted one of the afore saidIto change the subject Jim why is it that you are so powerfully afraid of water except for external useIt was a matter of common knowledge that the gentleman addressed had never been seen to quaff a glass of aqua pura that his supply of the stuff with which iiint juleps were made was never ex hausted and that he was a trifle proud of the record he had made as au abjurer of water In consequence all ears were cocked to catch the reply to his ques tionerThere is astorv hesaid connected with the abhorrence and fear I enter tain for the drinking of water that goes back many years and which would not prove of much interest I take it to you all who ale mostly young men and have had little experience with the world Lets have it colonel said several voices at once Well once upon a time many lung years ago began the colonel when I was a very young man I taken the gold tever and nothing would do but that I must seek my fortune among tho gold fields of California It was some years I after the great rush of 49 but rich finds were still being made in the mountains I purchased my outfit in San Francisco and started for the hills where I soon became a fullfledged prospector After a nomadic career of two years with in different success I found myself one cold winters day high up in the nioun talus near Alt Shasta the highest peak in that state To reach my destination I was obliged to climb still higher in order to cross the range that towend between me and my objective point Slung to the pommel of my saddle on one side was a jug of whisky while on the other was a jug of water As I said before the weather was bitterly cold and the higher I climbed the colder it got Well gentlemen before I reached the summit of that pass that jug of sirbustedawful catastrophe to myself had that water been incased in me instead of

will be bathed In pure white light which will bring out Into strong relief their beautiful outlines and the richness of the tints and mural paintings on their screen walls I Chief Henry Hustln who Is head of the department of electrical design has charge of this important feature Act lug In the same capacity at Omaha and Buffalo he set so high a standard there that his effort to outdo It at St Louis Is the supreme one of his lifeBy Ingeniously contrived lights tho whole picture will be flooded ait night with changing hues At one time the scene will be a harmony of violet changing Into amber emerald crimson and amethyst running the whole gamut of color combinations so skillfully that the spectator hardly will be conscious where one color leaves off and the other begins But through all the changes of colors thrown on tho buildings it will be possible for tho cascades to retain a distinctive tint Mercury vapor lamps are cleverly concealed in the bases of the sculp ture lining the sides of the cascades the rays being thrown from concealed reflectors through small windows At an angle that will not meet the vision of spectators from any point of view In this light the waters of the Cascades will have the appearance at one time of a ghostly phosphorescent tort rent at another moment of floods of opal gems and again of a cataract of living flame Every source of the wonderful ka leidoscopic effects will be Ingeniously hidden It will be possible to pick out different parts of the hill and its structures In different colors Thus while tho hall In the center will beta rose color ono arm of the colon nade orange the other violet and the twin pavilions emerald the whole splendid effect will be attained without confusion of colors The night effects on other parts of the site have not been forgotten An electric fountain that will be a thing of beauty and a riot of color surpass ing anything of the kind ever designed will occupy a + v Int of vantage on the grounds The exhibit buildings at night will appear to be giant cornices of white light supported at the four corners and the centers by immense pavilions of light The rest of the facades will be so treated that

practical contrivance of Its kind ever constructed It was patented- In 1846 by Elias Howe Previously In 1842 J J Greenough had obtained a patent for a sewing machine which carried the cloth along

ot- a horizontal brass wheel and In order to print a letter it is merely neces sary to punch one of the buttons which causes the type to descend through a little tube and make a mark upon a slip of white paper The exhibit will Include a model of the first castIron plow which was patented by Charles Newbold in 1797 and the first screw propeller which was invented by Robert Hook in 1680 The invention of the steamboat Is credited to Robert Fulton yet in the seventeenth century Denys Papin launched on the Seine In France a boat that was run by steam It is a matter of historical record that the river barge men smashed Papins boat because they feared that It would In jure their business The most interesting of all models however In the line of aquatics will be that of Abraham Lincolns famous device for lifting steamboats oft shoals Another exhibit will be the first printing press and harvesting machine the latter made in 150 B C The first locomotive and first steam engine made In

question A thorough canvass would no doubt reveal that every taxpayer in Hickman and nine tenths of those in the country were in favor of the change from our present overseer system to one of direct taxation Sometime this month the gun boat Nashville accompanied by two torpedo boat destroyers will pass Hickman en route to the worlds fair at St Louis It is believed tjiat were a united effort made it could be so ar ranged that the ships would lay over here for a gay They are due to leave Tampa today and will ascend the river by easy sta ges arriving at St Louis in time for the opening of the fair April ai All that is needed is for someone to take the initiative the rest will follow The candidacy of Judge Alton B Parker of New York for the democratic nomination for presi dent seems to be growing One of Mr Parkers strongest recom mendations aside from his ack noxvledged ability and fitness is the belief that the democratic organizations of both the state and city of New York are heartily in favor of him New York has 39 electoral votes and the man who wins the nomination at St Louis will have to show the convention that they will count in the democratic column Well informed politicians believe that updlr his admirers We might win without New York but with it the election is a cinch The success of our recent guessing contest and the satisfaction expressed by all vhf participated therein has led us to make a deal whereby from this time un til further notice we will give to every new subscriber and each old subscriber who pays one year in advance one years subscrip

by Agent Lucas for the collection of hack taxes on deposits alleged to be due the state from various banks be nolle pressed Lucas is a holdover appointee from Auditor Coulters term and his suits seem not to have been inspired so much from a sense of duty as from a desire to line his own pocket withcoin of the realm When it is known that 20 per cent of these taxes about the validity of which there is a questiongo to the agent col lecting them Lucas object is easily apparent His declaration that he is not subordinate to the auditor and that he is a free agent under the law to perform his duties as he sees them is the brag of the swelled head incom petent The very name of the office he occupies signifies that he acts under authority from the auditor and that such acts must have his approval before cognizance may be taken of them by the courts Auditors Agent Lu cas evidently is not aware of the fact that no creature is greater than the power which created it but he is destined to remain in ignorance but a short time Auditor Hager has promised to bring the matter home to him in a comprehensive manner after which it is probable that Lucas will seek a new field of endeavor FOOLS AND
