and people who took part in the cele bration at Hickman The day dawned bright and clear and era the sun had got lairly started on its journey across the heavens peo plo on all the roads loading to Hickman were wending their way to see the greatest natal day demonstration that bas ever occurred iu Western Kentucky They came from all points ot the com pass in all sorts of conveyances bedecked ih holiday finery with money iu their pockets smiles on their faces and all bent upon the one object of having a good time The rim began witn then arrival the spirit of joviality was contagious and each individual seemed to become afflicted with a do sire for fun and pleasure the minute ho- i struck the town Everybody was lytp py the welkin pealed forth its merry chimes and joy iu all its many forms was uncoutiued They frolicked with one another joked among themselves watched the sports with a definite interest and crowded upon the race coarse and sporting grounds with the freedom and snug froid of merrymakers who knew not the thought of ill and brooked not the rise ot passions The special police used all their persuasive powers to keep the track clear and succeeded very well but what did tlieir orders avail against the smiles of the pretty girls and the caprices of the young bent on having u good time Not a complaint of any description was liens All had plenty to cat and drink tho different events were pulled oil promPtlY as per schedule each being hotly contested the fairly renders and the prizes awarde and given at once to the winners The parade which took place at 1 oclock was perhaps the prettiest thing that has ever been 1I0en in Hickman Tne Union City band comprising pieces headed it and was followed by many beautifully decorated carriages The prize for the most beantiful turn- Out was warded to the Misses Irene and Lite Faris and everyone seemedL satisfied that the prize had been prop erly awarded file turnout of Dr Davidsons was a novel and pretty o- ffairIt represented Japanese royalty The carriage was occupied by several young ladies dressed th Japanese au- I was drawn by four light colored negroes dressed as jiurikisha men It elicited unsay complimentary remarks and was inter i wwii C j y esting feature of the parade The W O W float was symbolical of the order and was greeted with much applause while the float driven by W F Blake more upon which way seated some twenty five of the pretty young ladies of our town was loudly cheered as it paved through the crowded streets There were many other attractive features and beautifully decorated earring es that received muchapplause and prase but space forbids u minute description of them all Several earring es which had been profusely decorated wore prevented from entering the pa rude owing to the fact that they were overtnkeu by a shower of ruin and tno decorations so impaired that they were withdrawn Promptly at U oclock the fat mens race was called It was a funny event and there were five entries Than Reg ers was the winner At U10 M W Cox won tho wheelbarrow race from four competitors The egg race was won by Herman Marshal of Crystal Springs the sad race by Jim Oliver and the running on all fours face by Coop Brad haw The 100 yard dash was won by Tim Holcombu from live competitors and was a hot race Jim winning by a few inches The sports thou shifted from Clinton street to the river front where the interest for tho morning seemed to center showing conclusively that these sports were a drawing factor in the days events In the largo boat race from the Bay ou de Chien to the Lee Line wharf th Rabbits Foot owned by tho Men ol com puny won easily from the Shiloh which had been handicapped with a gasoline launches in a race from the Leo Line wharf to the Riugo light and return was next on the program They made an exciting race but tho Ida hello is a faster craft than its opponent and won easily Jim Holcombo won the tube rate Dave Pearson the barrel race and Peter Hoppner took both the prizes in the swimming on the back and speed races Tho skiff race was won by Jim Overtoil and Georgo Fleitz After dinner and the parade the crowd wended its way to Athletic Park to witness tho ball game between HickI 1man and Dresden Fully 1500 people were in the grounds when game was called by Umpire S L Dodds It was hotly contested throughout and it was Anybodys awe ngUt ap to the last I half of the ninth inning when tho score stood 8 to 9 in favor of the visitors In this inning the Hickman boys buckled down to hard work and ran in two scores giving them a load ot ono and making the score 10 to 0 in their favor A good crowd of rooters accompanied tho Dresden boys and these taken with the ability of our own welt known rooters kept interest from lagging It was perhaps the best game that has been played hero this season ami has thoroughly demonstrated the ability of tho Ilickmau team to hold its own with the best of em This makes eight games it has played this season and it lias won seven of them losing one to Union City Tho Dresden boys play good ball but seemed to luck acquain tance with one another They wero good individual players but worms de ficient in team playing ability showing that they had neglected practice One of the pleasant features of the game way that no decision of Umpire Dodda i was disputed and there was conse quently no wrangling After the ball game about a dozen boys wero given an opportunity to climb a greased polo None of them reached the top and the prize was given to Frank Collins ho havingclimbed the highestA pig was then turned loose on the diamond and about half a dozen young negroes wero started after him The pig did not run much and was quickly captured by Sam Furrell Thu fox chase was next on the program but as it was getting late and the people evidently becoming hungry many left tho grounds to go to supper It was an interesting race and the hounds made a good run The fox was finally run down in the hills back of town but few people were in at the tin ish as the gait was too speedy the day too warm to run and the hills too hard to 7 iW and 8150 occurred the baud concert on the depot plaza

easily oue may be mistaken and unconsciously lend astray people who are mostly vitally interested Hon Rice A Pierces has returned from 1 his attendance ou the session of the Mississippi River Commission and reports that the Commission has set apart 30000 for the Tiptonville lltoktnau le j vee besides arranging for u survey on the icut off Engineers anticipate that this 30000 will lack but two miles of completing the levee Theres nothing like having u congressman who can do things do rather than talk dream and theroize The fact is that no money whatever has beets appropriated recently for th e HiukmanTiptonville levee and that which liar beeu allotted was done with out the knowledge or consent of bir Pierce A brief history of the case is about as follows Three years ago congress passed a rivet and harbor bill car ryiug with it an nppropri uioii of eight million dollars for the improvement of rthe Mississippi riverfour million to be expended in building levees and four million to improve the channel It was expressly specified I hut cno million u year for four consecutive years should be spent in building levees each years money to be uvaible on July 1 and the power of allottment reposed in the Mis sissippi river commission This com mission levee upon the representation of Hon K T Tyler president of the Fulton county board allotted 320000 for the work ou the Hickumu Tiptonville levee to be doue In the year 1002 and in 1903 it allotted another 20000 At the solicitation of the levej boards congress then provided for the expen diture of the one million dollars due the commission from the government in 1904 and the one million due iu 1905 Iu tho year 1004 That is the Berry bill gave the commission the power to allot the remaining two inillliou so that all the money might be spent and the work doue in the year 1S04 Of the 1904 allotment the commission gave the Hickman Tiptonville levee 15000 and of the 1905 allotment it gave us 16000 making a total of 30000 to be expended in levee work in Fulton county during tho year 1904 The 15000 worth of levee work due in 1004 is now under way and is being pushed us rapidly as possible The money due in 1905 but made avaible this year by the Berry bill amounting to smother 15000 will be spent this fullIUld the contracts for that amount of work will probably be let about September 1 When this amount of work lias been completed there will still remain a gap of something less than six piiles be tweeu the north stud south end of the HickmunTiptouville levee which will require an additional appropria tion of about 115000 to complete All the money so far appropriated by the government in tho river and harbor bill will have been spent with tho letting of 15000 worth of contracts on September 1 nod nothing further may be expected from congress until another appropriation is made All that has beep accomplished in the way of building the IlickuiauTipton ville levee in Fulton county has been through the efforts of tho Fulton coun ty levee board This board at onetime sought the influence of Mr Pierce in furtherance of the project but for sonic reason it was not available The allot ments were made by the commission without even the knowledge of the Ten nessee congressman and it is ridiculous for nim to luv any claim to the credit of such allotments He had no more to do with it thin the editor of the News Banner and it is a trifle presumptuous OD his part to endeavor to divert to him self any part 6f the credit thereof We agree with tho News Banner that there is nothing like having a congressman who can do things but in this instance it has drawn considera bly upou its imagination as Mr Pierce has done absolutely nothing towards pushing the IlickmauTiptouville le vee nor can he more than anole tlse do anything until another appropriation is wade The false hopes inspired by the News Banners item leading many Of our interested farmers to believe that an additional 10000 has beeu allotted when in fact uot oue penny additional has been given is responsible for this correction READ THIS One small bottle of tho Texas Wonder Halls Great Discovery cures all kiduey and bladder

produce commission merchant ac ordlng to the New York Sun 20 Imoa as many poppers as it did 20 years ago The citys consumption of eppers now amounts to thousands of barrels annually Then we get green Irappers now from a much wider range of territory than formerly and wo have them practically the year around We get poppers in winter from Cuba and we get a few from Porto RicO We naturally think of the pcp per as n hbmely sort of a domestic garden product but those early peppers that we get front Cuba come in small crates as carefully packed as peaches would be and they bring a high price They go principally to hotels and restaurants Wo get early peppers from Florida too and later some from Virginia around Norfolk and then as the sea son advances we begin to get peppers from New Jersey which is really the great source of our pepper supply There are sections of Jersey in which produce farmers make a specialty of peppers plant them by the acre and raise great crops of them The enormous increased local con sumption of peppers in recent years is due in considerable measure to In creased demand from packers Peppers are now more extensively used than ever before in the preparation of condiments and sauces and there are New York packers of pickles and preserves who would think nothing ori buying peppers in hundred barrel lots But the great Increase In the demand comes in still greater measure from the vastly increased foreign popula tion of the city and from the Italians especially who great consumers of allI fruits and vegetables take with t crest of the green things they buys quantities of peppers eating more or less of the sweet peppers as they would fruit So the homely pepper onco famIl iar to us in its stuffed and pickled form and known to us as a thing ofj regular but of limited sale has come to cut quite a figure as an item in the citys wholesale produce trade lii DRILLING A ROCK Rhythmic and Unerring Surety of Motion Exhibited by the Man Who

risibility but they are really dangerous obstructions says Outing This dues not lie in the fact that either one is big enough to wreck an automobile A machine of even light weight striking a pigeon la the road would not feel it but chickens and pigeons both have a way of waiting until the machine gets close at hand and then flying itraight up If the automobile is going faster than they expect just as lIkely as not the drivers face may lolllde with the rising bird This may temporarily blind him or much more likely rattle him so that his machine swerves to one side and sometimes disagreeable things might happenFor chickens and dogs it is best to slow down If possible One reason for this is the ethical one that you have no right whatever to destroy other peoples propeKy Chickens and dogs may mean a great deal to farmors who own them and they ave fully as good a right upon the road as you have going at a high Ite of speed Until you have learned to respect the property and the feel ings of other persons you have na business running an automobile at oil I I SIGN WAS A PUZZLING ONE Frenclinian In Liverpool Sees Many Tbioif Which Stupefy Had Amaze hint Theie is no class of foreigners to
