Western Kentucky were the citizens e generally and the farmers especially enjoying such universal prosperity as is prevailing now Not only have the farmers been receiving good prices for their pro duce but seasons have been un usually favorable with the result that the cropi have with very few exceptions yielded exceptionally well This has been the case for the past two or three years and where formerly a farmer was hi straited circumstances he is now in comparative affluence In fact so well fixed is he financially that he Is in position to lend money and the continued high prices are due in a great measure to their position ot independence when selling their pro ducts When approached now and asked his price the farmer names it and if the wouldbe purchaser accepts wealI and good but if he is disposed to haggle over it the farmer walks away and leaves whereas in past years be would have asked What will you give Prices al present on farm products are ranging about as follows i Corn S3 per barrel clover baySl6 per ton timothy hay 17 perton f oils SO cents per bushel i wheat 68 cents per bushel eggs 1 5 rents per dozen j spring chickens JS to 3D cents hens 7 cents per pound tobacco j4i50 10- Slot per hundred The wheal nTarket opened at 80 cents but has since ddined to 63 cents this being the only item which shows a falling off in price Even with this however the majority of the farmers are on the right side for by far the larger part of them sold at the highest price The prosperity thus enjoyed by the farmers Iis being reflected in every line of business Merchants report the best business in their his tory and there have been none of the oldtime dull seasons Crops this year promise to even exceed the past fruitful years and all indications point to a continuance of the good times Notice to Hickman Local Union A Sof E The members of Hickman Local Union 487 A S of E are asked to attend a meeting of the union Tuesday evening Oct 9 at 7 iUO p m Important business will

down South started a newspaper and sent me a copy and I subscribed for it to encourage him and alter a while he published an order to sell a lot at public auction So 1 inquired about the lot and told a friend to run it up to S50 He bid off the slot at SJa and sold it in less than a month for 1 100 so I made 62 clear by taking the paper My father told me that when he was a young man he saw a notice in a paper that a school teacher was wanted away off in akk distant country and he went and got the position and a little girl was sent to him and after a while she grew up sweet and beautiful and he married her Now if he had not tak that paper whit do you suppose would have become of me I would have been some other rdloWQr a maybe wouldnt have been at all I aIor48 Hickman Ice Coat Qt A i ii I

Friday October 5th 1006 1 I THE NEGRO PROBLEM j In the wake of the Atlanta affair i comes another from Mobile I though the latter named city was in the throes so to speak of the ter rible storm that has just swept that I city and left the place almost in ruins her people are not asleep to their duly to protect the rights and virtues of their womanhood A1 was the case in Atlanta quit a RumI to ber of white women had ben ai saulted by black scoundr te and i when the situation came to a cllm by a 17 yearold brute wearing hisn first pair of long trousers assaulted a 12 year old white girl and cscapp t ed when the girl was found neonI scious and detectives placed on thtII trail the negro found and idontfte- the I sheriff him of the lancitythenj on up and excited over the matter and hungering for vengeance went to the and demanded the t UWhenpicrfdencement and an assault was madeb the jail at two successive times andaI the jail searched When finally l was learned where the officers ha I taken him two hundred men folio- edR on a train with the express par pose of lynching blmwThis slhlebthe criminal by the hands of the Ilaw but it seems apparent that the time has come when the law shall have no hand in the punishment of rich crimes for legal punishment or any other kind has no effect on the hienous scoundrels The time hasbeen come when our womanhood Is 1any jeopardy and when her rights areIn no longer hers and her virtue a no longer safe This is caused by the repeated assaults on white wo men throughout the south almost e cry day that passes When thisreI state of affairs exists as it now doesth it is time for something to be doneth if the hands of the law can have no able effect then something else MOST be done that WILL have effect TheA ngro has been permitted the sa- to meAvenue rights and privileges that the whites i have and in the south where theyIsl make themselves amenable to the over law are encouraged and treated the with all due respect even though of the south is branded by the north as the avowed enemy of the nearohaNow the negro has a place and Inell this place he must stay and if he does not stay in his place woe unto him Until le peopi1 I ted to deal in such instances as thisha k but it is growing old and the time has come when the people will not a Iaak such for almost any yes we say are every community regards its wo can i manhood too highly to permit any such outrages to be perpetrated asstr has been upon almost every comm u nity of laU No matter what other people think of the situation or what they think late of our opinion The Courier is of the this opinion that if they will not take a warning from the examples set bene fore them and if the punishment of the law has no effect then do thing else Let the negro know place and keep it for it is pafactthe v with so much that that they WILL at show him his place and without any will needless preliminaries trust AN OBJECT LESSON Misses Bertha and Barbara Krupp of Etscn Germany created a sen sation in Berlin the other day by apsa trousseaforu marriage The tradesmen were rather dlsaptha pointed that not more than a thou he sand marks or S250 was spent for each outfit v The girls are the daughters of the I great Runmaker who loll nn imp mente fortune the largest part o t which went to his daughter Bertha is the richest woman la Germany Barbara is not so rich but she has a matter of 12500000 with which to keep the wolf torn the door Bertha Krupp is about to many Mr Gustave von Bohlen und Hal nolwtcrI t standing his double name Barbara Krupp will wed the Baron Telo Wilowski Neither of the bpi I grooms is rich I The girls are criticised for sot t business by jspendlng obAIi t But they were brought up with great simplicity and may well maim that they are setting a good example by not lavishing money on th Irtint wedding outfits So far as diffusing I their fortunes among thepeople their husbands may be trusted to attend that SIMPLIFIED
