II 10. 8416 TIE TSil IMS ALONE Byron Wllllami. Stroud is Acquitted. GREAT FREE OUTDOOR ENTERTAINMENT St. Louis and World's Fair Views. ....MANY COMIC MOVING PICTURES.... On Monday evening at 8 o'clock the people of Hickman and the surround-i- n country will have a rare chance to see and hear, without cost, the best illustrated lecture and moving picture show ever seen in this city or elsewhere. Sir Charles Patriot, representing Roberts, Johnson and Rand Shoe Co., will present this novel entertainment, which is highly entertaining and instructive and has been pronounced superior to entertainments given in halls and opera houses where admission prices are charged. This show will take place on the side street next to Jones cafe and everybody, men, women and children in Hickman and the entire country are invited to be present. Over two million people have seen and applauded these wonderful pictures. It is worth coming a long way to see. Don't miss it. Bring the children. Charley Stroud, the party charg ed with the murder of Rob Summers, about three miles from this city, on March 10 was acquitted last Wednesday by the verdict of the jury, the defense setting up justifiable . homicide. The facts, in short, in this case, are as follows : Summers was living on the place with Stroud, and was complaining because Stroud had not built him a cistern, at he agreed. Over this the trouble arose. .It was claimed that Summers came into the house of the defendant, and there made a demonstration as if in the act of pulling a weapon from his pocket, with which to inflict punishment on the defendant, when the defendant shot and killed Summers. The evidence did not show that there was any weapon found in possession of the dead man. Wells Sells Pot of Gold. Charles H. Wells, of Mayfield, who found a kettle of gold while digging a foundation for a saw mill in Ballard county, has sold the money, face value of $5,600. for 59,200 to C. F. Clark & Co., of Cincinnati, old coin collectors. The find Includes 115 $20 gold pieces; 200 S10 gold pieces ; 120 SS gold pieces ; 8 $50 gold pieces ; 210 silver dollars and 180 silver half dollars. The money is supposed to have been buried by a man named Keitham during the civil war. Wells has never made any secret of his find, and considers the money rightfully his own. He will engage in the real estate business in May-fielMayfield Messerger. d. Extra Special Reception. You are invited to a special reception in our store from 3 p. m. to 4t p. m.

A prominent Hickman merchant landed on the Courier man last week for "puffing up a fellow that aint worth a cuss," and showed us for that matter. But our mission is to say as many good things as we can. It is not always best to tell the Womanly Wisdom. Rest your weary bones by having a chair in the kitchen to sit in while doing the work you can do in that way. If blankets are rather too short sew a piece of stout muslin or Canton flannel to one end for the "tuck in." You will spoil your nice china washing it in water that is too hot. Have water fairly warm. Use a bit of soap and you are all right. No cracked china then. Don't try to do your dusting with a dry cloth. Inat only sets the particles of dust flying everywhere. Dampen your cloth and rinse it out in clear water, once in a while. Rice usually looks clean when it comes from the store ; but wash it in in clear water and you will see that jt is far from being so. Keep on washing till the water is clear, than cook. To get rid of ants in the pantry lay some ham rinds on the shelves, or smear a saucer with lard and set It there over night. In the morning these will be found covered with the ants, which my be scalded with boiling water, and the traps set again. In a few days every ant will Wher hingt th mapl' golden leaf, Gov.

When some widower gets married spinster, he writes to a cross-eye- d up a glowing account of the wedding in which he states that the groom 13 handsome and popular and the bride is the most beautiful young lady In the communty. When some incompetent fellow runs for office and pays the usual announcement fee, he pubsay-in- f. lishes a half column write-up- , the candidate is perfectly equipped to fill the office and Is well quali-fr- J to perform any public service.

The drouth that has been burning up the crops and pastures In this vicinity for some time, and which THAT AWFUL BOY had almost become general ever the state, was broken Sunday, and as a have shorresult the farmers tened considerably. In speaking of drouths, the one of 1854 was mentioned as the most desA man who tructive ever known. that time has the folwas living at lowing to say : "I was acquainted with old persons who could recollect way back to the first settlement of the state and they had never seen or heard of such a drougth. There was a very heavy rain about the last of May, which washed the fencing off, carried away bridges, and washed the soil away. After the great rain it did not rain any more until the 1st October follwing. The creeks, ponds and nearly all the springs went dry. Farmers had to dig for water for family use and for their stock. A great many farmers hauled water from the Big Springs at Georgetown and from Elkhorn. "There was a light crop of wheat ; very little hay and less of vegetables and little corn, from one to twelve bushels per acre, and most of that of an inferior quality. In the state northwestern part of the there was a large part of the land in a state of nature, covered with large, white oab trees and all of them full of acorns, which were used instead of corn to fatten hogs, and what acorns were left over the sto:k hogs had to winter on. "On the 28th day of Feruary, 1855, it turned cold and remained cold until the middle of March, About the time it turned cold the most in the woods gave out and a large per cent of hogs died; also some horses, cattle and sheep died. "There were good crops of corn in Indiana, but it was very hard to get it into Kentucky, as there were but two railroads in the state ; one from Louisville to Lexington and one from Covington to Lexington. Corn had to be hauled 'in wagons from the stations on thoes railroads to supply the people living from one to 40 miles over dirt roads, for were but few turnpikes at that time in Kentucky, There have been several droughts since, but none to to equal that of 1854 It was a hard year on the poor for there was but little money in circulation and nothing to do to earn money.

The land was in fine condition to raise a ci op very few weeds seeded and the drought and freezing the following winter put the ground in fine condition. Some pulled up the old corn stubs and dropped the corn in the hole and covered with their foot and cultivated it with a hoe and made a fine crop. The year of 1855 was the most productive ever known in Kentucky. It required less cultivation to make a crop than was ever known. Corn sold at SI per buthel and all other farm produce in pro portion. One dollar then was equal to S3 at the present time. The list month reminds me very mu ch of 1854.

COURIER tfc Dsw" Home Company Organized. The independent telephone agitators held an enthusiastic meeting at the opera house yesterday afternoon, together with a number of our business men and citizens. The meeting was held fot the purpose of organizing a company for this city to connect with other, rural telephone lines in Fulton county and neighboring towns, which has been brought about by reason of the Cumberland people raising rates. Organization was perfected by electing the following : Tom Dillon, Sr., Pres. A. M. Tyler, Vice-Pre- s. B. T. Davis, Secy, and Treas. The committee on and regulations is composed of F. S. Moore, J. W Roney, B. T. Davis, Allen Davis and A. M. Tyler. Allen Davis and B. T. Davis were made members of a committee to make a canvass of the town and solicit phones. Speeches were made by Remley, Moore, Roney, Fletcher, Tyler and Thomas pointing out the advantages to be derived from an independent, or mutual company. A meeting of the new organization will be held next Monday and re ports from committees received. For the benefit of those who do not know, we will say that those who take phones in the home enterprise will get free connection with more than 4,000 phones and free service to nearly every town in the First Judicial District. It will cost ap proximately $25 to have a phone installed and 25c to 50c a month for maintenance. It will have, however, disadvantages as well as advantages, but in the main, will be far cheaper service than we are now getting.

It means dollats and cents to say nothing of common courtesy to our business men, especially merchants to see that we have some hitch racks in Hickman. Next thing we know, we'll be at the old stunt, of "locking the barn after the horse is gone" and wooing the favor of the once patient rural denizen who has decamped with his trade to a. more hospitable market. Watch it. Good Cotton Day. The two cotton gins of this city received 99 loads of cotton last Saturday Dodds' gin 49 and Farmers gin 50 loads paying on an average of S60 a load, or nearly $6,000 cash. This is not so bad for one day's return from the fleecy product. The price paid was $3 per hundred, and it is said that Hickman now has the best cotton market in this section. Betting odds in Indiana have slowly changed from 10 and 13 on Marshall to 9 to 10 ou Watson.

A meeting was held and each member was awarded the "call of destiny." which amounted to an astlcnment to test his metal. Chambers was told to period as a sailor and not set foot fiass a America for a year. Then he waa directed to go to Mexico for further Instructions which were to assign him to another year's exile, during which time he must make his own living unassisted, and keep everything a secret, lie gained his father's consent. lie also acquainted Marsylla llayless, his father's choice for his wife, with the fact that he would be away two years. Shu left him angrily. Jerry obtained a berth as supercargo on an ocean freighter bound for Urania, South America, loaded with guns for enemies of that government. Chambers was captured and thrown Into a dungeon. Marina lioatos. adopted daughter of Gen. liostoa, ministered to his wounds. Each made a strong Impression on the other, Jerry was sentenced to die. Upon promise of Marina's love, Capt. I'llsro freed Chambers. All three united with Oen. Ilarado's rebels. Chambers being made a captain. Capt. I'llaro died of fever.

Jerry worked until about 11 o'clock, occasionally: going up tho ladder for fresh nlr. 'He was standing on the ladder, his head and shoulders above the deck, when tne captain and Andre suddenly appeared In vlow. He knew that he had no chance to get away without being seen. The captain scowled and merely looked at him. "It's hot down there." Jerry apologized, mopping his forehead with the sleeve of his shirt, "and 1 Just came up to get some fresh air." The captain and the strangor had a moment's whispered conversation, and then the latter, said, just as Jerry was starting down the ladder: "No need to bother one of your men, captain, If ho can do It Just as well." "I have some work for you to do In half an hour, young man," the captain called out to Jorry. "Iteport to mo The Tests. Jerry slept until after four In the morning, when, realizing that he had done practically nothing towards cleaning tho engine room and polishing tho metal, he set about with energy and a ravenous appctlto to In mako a reasonably fair showing Incaso the captain should mako nn spection. At soven. o'clock he rested. -yVhllo ho was boglnnlng to wonder what kind of. a breakfast ho would bo given, If given any at all, it was announced that the captain awaited hltn in hit office. "Have you been working? snapped tho officer. "T)io engineer can speak better than I, sir," answored Jerry. eS'bo officer went to tho engine room with him, and complimented him on the good work dono. "It's worth u breakfast anyway." Mid tho cantata, and" a few minutes forward." Jerry went below and soon was lost In wondering what he was expected to do. He welcomed tho captain's word, however, for' ho .might have an opportunity to seo Marina. The appointment was kept to the mlnuto. "A mistake has beon mado In placing tho trunks," said the captain, "and I want you to tako tho one out of No. 2 and put It Into No, 3. There Is a woman In each room, so annottneo . yourself." Jerry now felt confident that he was being "tested," and the blood In him ran cold. The captain and Andre followed closely behind him, stopping within a few feet of the door of No. 3, whero they could detect tho slightest recognition between him and Marina. Jerry did not know which room but without a moment's hesitation and with a hand steadied by a desperate will, he rapped on tho door of No. 2. Tho strango woman, who was about 40 years of age, Immediately appeared. "Tlip captain has Instructed mo to tako n trunk from this room Into the next," said Jerry. 8ho stepped out and Joined tho two men. Ho picked up tho trunk and carried It to the door of No, 3. Quito as unhesitatingly ho knocked, but In the minute that he waited for u response ho felt a dizziness that hu required his full strength to disguise. Tho men and tho woman were whero ttioy could see his faco quite as plainly as he could nvo Marina's, and ho felt that their eyes were piercing him to tho brain. As tho door slowly oponcd It seemed to him that every drop of blood In his body was In his face and that his oyes easily betrayed Ills raging emotions. Ho did not movo a muscle of his, face deck." Jerry, scarcely nblo to conceal his tremendous emotions, went back to the engine room. Had he betrayed himself? was a question uppermost in his mind. Surely she had not, and was beyond him to understand how sho could havo controlled herself at such a moment. "It wasn't the woman of It." he mused, after his excitement had subsided sufficiently to permit of rational thinking. "She did not blink an eye lash; she did not movo n muscle of her face; sho did not display tho slightest sign of recognition. After all, perhaps she did not recognlzo mo. Hut she looked rae squarely In the eyes, and tho light was full upon my face. It's beyond me, a million million miles beyond," and he rubbed his eyes to mako sure that ho had not been dreaming. Jerry Chambers did not know that when he looked Into Marina's darkened stateroom the night beforo she had distinguished his features In the bright moonlight that fell full upon them. He did not know that she was sitting in a corner of the room, away from the shaft of light that shot to her floor, whero she could not bo seen from tho deck, when he brought his face down to the hole. If It was Jerry Chambers In reality and not Jerry Chambers In a dream, she determined to be allvo to every possibility, and this preparedness accounted for the absolutely signless recognition of him whllo tho two men and the woman kept her face and his under such closo scrutiny. Jerry thought of a thousand and one things as ha sat on a box at tho end of the engine room, but ho did not grasp at one of them that did not suggest a means for saving Marina. Ho must see tho "little saint of Urania" and talk with her; ho must know. If possible, where sho was being taken, nnd he must prepare himself for a fight In case a fight was to come. It, occurred that Mike O Connor might safely bo taken into his confidence and that ho could bo of lnestlmablo service In rescuing the girl. The hand which gripped a broom In determination seemed to loso Its strength as the Are faded from his eyes and his gazo became lost In the shadows straight beforo him. "I wonder," he mused, "If she loves mo too!" Jerry reported to the captain lato In the afternoon, and was set to work scrubbing the deck. He did many other things, too, and when tbo cap tain said he might go to bed a ce ment floor for a bed! he was very tired and greatly disappointed. Not onco had ho seen Marina, although he had seen tho two men and the woman often. Despairing that he might not bo ablo to see and speak frith her at all he decided to write her a note and to get It to her If Ho aBkcd Mike O'Connor for a pleco of paper and a pencil. Mike, who had rellovcd tho Cuban, got them for him, and Jerry wroto about a dozen lines. Towards midnight Mike "went on deck to get fresh air for a few minutes, and whllo ho sat near tho hatchway ho saw Jerry slenling down tho deck in shadows which partially hid him. When "Tom Klannery" Btopped at tho portholo of Marina's stateroom and shot glances about him tho engineer became thoroughly orpused to tho. fact that Jerry was nioro than ho had represented hlmsolf to be. Just as the young man wus taking the note from 'his pocket Mlko whistled softly, Tho next Instant Jerry was on his hands and kneos motlng away as swiftly as pos-'.slbl- that frail llttlo creature. In No. 3?" Mike looked Jerry In the eyes for a moment and then extended a hand with such enthusiasm as only tho Irish can 'display. "I'm with you to the finish. Tommy I" said ho; "nnd so Is my money," ho added, patting a bulging Insldo pocket of his shirt. "Then wo'll see that, whatever may happen, they don't get away with her nt the pier in Vera Cruz?" "Wo? Why. lad, the boat ain't goln" to the pier this time. A gasollno launch Is to await tho four half a mile from tho landing. The young Cubysn downstairs Is goln' to take them In, and you'rn goln' to stay on tho boat until ho comes back." Jerry's heart almost froze. For an Instant he could not utter a word. Then ho blurted; "What!" That's right. Tommy. I hoard 'em makln o' their plans, and they won't oven trust an outside engineer to take 'cm In." "Rood heavens! Then, neither wiy you bo ablo to bo thero when they land!" "I can't be there, lad." Jerry was ns desperate as any human being could be. Ho suggested a number of things that Mike only ridiculed as, wholly Impracticable, until finally ho said: "You aro with me, Mike, to tho finish?" "Mo possible. Mike arose and walked towards him. "Tommy." "Oh, It's you, Mike," smiled Jerry as tbo engineer touched him on tho shoulder. Klannery. "Yes, It's me, Tommy What was you tryln' to do?" "Nothing nothing out of the way, Mlko.

Ho led tho engineer to tho end of the boat, whero they could not bo overheard, and told his story so dramatically that at times the listener shqved tho most oxcltcd Interest. "And, Mike," Jerry, finally said In of mind all tho more pronounced by whistling n lively little Irish air. Just before tho anchor wns thrown out tho captain approached Jerry and ordered hltn to go below and awaken thn Cuban engineer. "Hack again, I see," smiled Mike, "You mean dopo?"
