Another arm of the store octopus, which feeds on the pastures of the country merchant, is a grocery concern which sends a soliciting agent to Hickman and canvasses the country around about for orders for his house, and sells a big lot of groceries at an alleged greatly reduced price.

A motion has been filed in Chancery Court by the attorneys of the West Tennessee Land Company, asking an injunction restraining Ira Rubel, Sam Applewhite et als from fishing on the lake. The injunction has been expected for some time as it has been reported that the fishermen, or at least some of them were continuing to fish without paying royalty to the land company. The bills sets forth this fact and also states that the fish are being disposed of for profit. Circuit Court is in session at Tiptonville and considerable probing looking into the raids of night riders has been going on with the result that a number have been indicted. The. feeling in that county is very high and for some time it has been reported that citizens of that county would come into Obion and arrest the men they wanted and hang them and for some time on both sides armed men have kept an unceasing vigil. News was conveyed to Sheriff Finch that the Lake County men would seek to serve the warrents issued by the grand jury. Mr. Finch promptly notified Deputy Mayo at Hornbeak to inform the Lake County officials to send him any papers they might have to serve in this county and that he would see that they were served.

Tho higher court reversed tho de cision nnd remanded the case to the lower court for a now trial. Tho Standard Oil attorneys left court with their faces wreathed la smiles of tri umph, The decision Is a scathing arraign ment of Judgo Land!, In which It was asked If tho court bollotrd himself above the law In Imposing a fine that would fall on tho shoulders of tho mother corporation tho Standard Oil Company of Now Jersey when tho Indiana corporation alone, under thn law, could bo held responsible. It seemed to be tho Irony of fate that Judge Crosscut should have writ ton the decision of tho upper court He not only wrote tho decision but read the decision to tho waiting throng In the court room. Judges Not Friendly. Judgo Grosscup and Judge Landls have not been the best of friends for eomo tlmo as a result of certain stale tnents made months ago by Judge Land Is concerning federal Judges, who talk publicly on matters which might come under their Judicial attention. Tbo decision said la part: "Briefly stated, the reason of tho trial court for imposing this sentence was because, after conviction and he- fore sentence It was brought out on an examination of somo of tho offi cers and stockholders of the Standard Oil Company of Now Jersey, that the capital stock of the Standard Oil Com pany of Indiana, the defendant before tho corut, was principally owned by the ew Jersey corporation, a corpor ation not before the court the trial court adding (upon no evidence, how ever, to bo found In the record, and upon no Information specifically re ferred to) that In concessions of the character for which the defendant be fore tho court had been Indicted, tried and convicted, the Now Jersey corpor ation was not a virgin offender. Landls Is Scored. "Is a sentence such as this, based on reasoning such as that, sound? Passing over the fact that no word of ovldcnco or other Information support-I- n gtho trial court's comment Is to he found In the record, would the com ment, If duly proven, Justify u sentence such as this one that other wise would not have been Imposed?

Talk of skeletons in household closets I There are more ghastly figurative skeletons and odoriferous dead pasts hidden away in dusty pigeon holes in editorial sanctums than even the rapacious hard working Laporte murderess has buried on her notorious farm. While sensations and scoops mean money and business triumph, there yet remains a sympathy for humanity in newspaper ethics. Many a home owes its honor and well being, many a father and mother thtir respectable places in society many an erring son and daughter their fair names to a newspaper's suppression of facts collected by vigilant reporters. Often when stern justice says turn on the lights' some editor answers 'we will give the poor fool another chance." After such an instance of pity nothing can be more amusingly edifying to the easy editor than to overhear his paper berated as whiskywashy' and 'slow' wnen, if the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth were published concerning the critic or his friends, a social cyclone would be raised that would make the town ring with excitement and a, demand for extras enough to swell the lean coffers of the conscientious editor. soft-heartgood-nature- d I Mr. Bryan will be formally notified of his nomination on August 12th, and the notification will take place at Fairview.

At midnight Tuesday the physicians concluded an operation was necessary. After they discovered the full extent of her trouble which necessitated the use of the knife more than they had anticipated little hope of her recovery was entertained. All that loving friends could do for her was done, but she gradually sank until life went out at 5 :30 Wednesday afternoon. The remains were brought to Hickman this morning. Tnere was, rfbt a lady in Fulton county more universally loved nor held in higher esteem than Miss Sadie. For fourteen years she had been Assistant Cashier of the Hickman Bank, and had the confidence and good will of everyone. Besides being a model Christian woman, she possessed those traits of character which appeal to the admiration of all classes and ages always pleasant, genial and unchanging. Every day of her life she was the same gentle, kind and considerate lady. To say that she will be missed in both business and social circles, is putting it mildly. Her friendi who only a few days since saw her in her wonted place, always cheerful and happy can hatdly realize that she is gone from them forever. Miss Sadie was thirty-fou- r years old, and is survived by her mother, Mrs. M. Amberg, and two sisters Miss Lizzie and Mrs. R. G. Robbins, the latter residing at Mayfield. The fuheral services will be conducted by Rev. Turkington at the residence at 5 o'clock this afternoon and in accordance with Miss Sadie's request, burial will take place at the city cemetery at sunset. Even as the sun In its glory leaves the world to darkness, so does the passing of this beautiful life leave sorrow in tbe hearts of her countless friends. Our sympathy is ex' ended to the sad friends and bereaved family. Soldiers Rout Nightriders. Nightriders, for the first time, gave the soldiers battle at the home of Henry Bennett, one mile from Dycusburg, early Friday morning. About 40 night riders, expecting to find Bennett unprotected and kill him, were surprised by eight soldiers and the night riders opened fire. It was returned and the soldiers pursued the attacking party in running fight until they were lost in the datkness. So, far as known there were no casualties. . Bennett was whipped last winter, and he recognized several of his assailants, who also burned his barn. He has ' threatened to "turn them up," and they have made three distinct attacks on him. Friday night the soldiers were in Dycusburg as no trouble was feared. Early in the evening four strangers were seen about Bennett's home and the soldiers were hastily summoned. The night riders, when they learned they were discovered, fired on the soldiers and about 100 shots were exchanged before the riders disappeared in a woodland, Eight soldiers have been guarding Bennett's home since he was whipped a few mcnths ago.

Perry declares he will never take a bite of food or wear a stitch of clothes while he Is in the Dannomora hospital, and Drs. North, Townsend and McDonald, his physicians, believe him. Since November 19, 1903, Perry has received nourishment through a tube, not because it is necessary but simply because he has determined to die rather than to eat the regular prison fare. The prisoner is classed among the Insane, but he declares he has a motive for his actions. His refusal to be clad and to feed himself in the fashion customary, in Dannemora is not a mania, he argues, but is merely a bit of stubbornness aimed at what he describes as unfairness, and he adds that if the taking of food and the wearing of clothes will establish his sanity In the opinion of experts and get him transferred to a regular prison hs will eat solid food and clothe himself He objects to being treated unfairly, he says, and this Is the baala for hit strange actions.
