Some years beloro Emmett had traveled with a circus as a drummer. In winter the warm Southern circuit was a popular route with circus people and those who were obliged to show in the North would say when the cold weather would make them shiver, "I wish I was in Dixie," The phrase was, in fact, a current circus expression, On that dismal September day, probably the begin ning of the equinoctial, when Emmett stepped to the window and looked out, the old longing for the pleasant South came over him, and involuntarily he thought to himself, "I wish I was in Dixie." Like a flash the thought suggested the first line for a "walk around" and a little later the minstrel, fiddle in hand, was working out the milody which coupled with the words, made "Dixie" a genuine song of the people almost Black Hand of the South Night Riders at Last, Casta its Shadow Over Fulton County. from the instant it was sung from the stage of Bryant's ministrels, then at No. 472 Broadway, New York, on the night of Monday, September 19, 1859. The vogue of ''Dixie" as the song of the South seems to have original ed in the excitement it caused when sung on the stace of the New Orleans Verities Theater in the spring of 1861, when Mrs. John Wood was appearing there in "Pocahontas " A feature of the performance was a zouave march which was introduced into the last scene. A catchy tune was wanted for this, and Carlo Patti, the leader of the orchestra, after trvlng over several pieces, decided on "Dixie." He little knew what that decision would mean for the song. When the zouaves marched on the first night, led by Miss Susan Denin. sineine "Dixie." the audience went wild and demanded seven encores, from New Orleans it seemed to flash over the entire Washington Artillery had the tune arranged for a quickstep and the whole section of 'he country rang with it, Pickett ordered it played before his famous charge at Gettysburg Thus the anomaly was presented of a song written and composed by a man who was born in the North and who as a matter of fact, sympathized with the North, becoming the war song of the South. Emmett stated that he received S500 for the copyright of 'Dixie," and that what he had received for all his other songs put together (which it should be remembered, included his popular "Dan Tucker") would be fairly represented by $100, so that during a lifetime of eighty-nin- e years his receipts as a song composer amounted to $600 an I obscurity in a little Western town He passed his declining years in what was little better than a hut and earned a sparse livelihood raising chickens and corn and chopping wood.

Chicago. in When W. of the day at the second session of the deep waterways convention, reached the Auditorium Theater today the audience arose in a body, cheering lustily and waving American flags. It wns a repetition of the reception accorded W. 1L Taft yesterday. Mr. Bryan showed only a trace of hoarseness when he began speaking. His address was reiiejtedly Interrupted by laughter or applause as he made some humorous touch or drovVhome an'argu-- ' ment. Mr. llryan said: "I am glad tp meet with those who assemble here in the interest of development of the waterways of this country. I am in hearty sympathy with you. You can not give tho jeople too good facilities for till transportation of their merchandise. If you tell me you want to improve the Mississippi, I tell you improve it just as far as you please nnd make the canal as far as you please and make the canal as wide as you please and deep as you please, and when you get to improving the Mississippi I will start out all alone, if necessary, to improve every river that empties Into the Mississippi." J. Ilrynn, speaker Washington. Between the Mexican boll weevil nnd the wilt the troubles of the cotton crop arc still perplexing the sharpest and shrewdest scientists of the department of agriculture. The weevil is moving this way from the Southwest nnd the wilt is advancing to meet the Insect pest, nnd when they combine! the scientists dread the consequences. Thus far the department's plant experts have been unable to assure an extermination of the weevil, anil they are forced to admit they have discovered no effective cure for the wilt except sterilization of the laud by heat at a prohibitive cost. The Western outposts of the cotton wilt and the Eastern confines of the boll weevil have already met in F.atcrn Arkansas, Texas and Louisiana and some parts of Southwestern Mississippi. The boll weevil spreads eastward at a rate of not less than sixty miles each season, while the expansion of the cotton wilt, wherever it finds lodgment in the soil, is at the rate of len acres a year from any single little spot. The damage from the cotton wilt is es timated at $2,000,000 a year, and seems destined to grow at a serious rate. The damage from the boll weevil was set down in 1000 as $26,000,000. In the case of both ravages one by an insect which propagate faster than It can be destroyed, and the other a disease of the plant for which no known remedy has" been discovered the department appears at its wits' end, but is constantly bending every energy and Inventive Ingenuity to develop strains of cotton which will survive the weevil and resist tho wilt. Isolated instances of wilt were found in the cotton belt twenty-fiv- e years ago, but the disease was not accurately described until "1801, since which the department .liar been carrying on a futile war with the disease. Despite every method of treatment, the malady has be come especially prevalent j tt South Carolina, Georgiu, Mississippi, Tennessee and Arkansas. Cases of it' have already ap peared in Texas and Oklahoma. SERVIANS ANXIOUS TO FIGHT PRESIDENT OFFERED WINE AusPer-Vi- Entire Nation Is Half Mad at tria's Action. EV a Belgrade, Scrvia.

Some are tailored in the conservative mannish styles, or following the Directoire and Empire styles. The materials are mostly broad-clot- h and cheviots.

Miss Carp:nter has had the good luck of leading each week, witb the exception of one. This week, Miss Stoker Is only a little over 5,000 behind Miss Carpenter, while Misses Royster and Stone are are not far behind Miss Stoker, At this rate, there will likely be some close figures within the next two weeks.

The letter was received through the poitoffice, and informed Walker that unless the employes of this company were given a raise of 50c a day, the factory buildings would be burned. The letter was signed night riders, and enclosed a match to make their meaning clear. The letter was mailed at walnut LogTenn., abcut 12 miles from here. It is hardly likely that genuine night riders had anything to do with sending the letter, although the Mengel Co. owns a big block of the American Tobacco Company's stock. The tobacco company is the arch enemy of the night rider, who sprang into existence solely through the troubles of the tobacco-growe- r. The general consensus of opinion is that the letter was written by an for mercy, but the brutal, cowardly nenas muraerea tne little baby in the mother's arms and she (ell fatal ly wounded with the dead baby clasp cd in her arms. Then a little girl only five years old was murdered while trying to escape through the door and three other children were shot and seriously wounded." Further along in his proclamation of reward the Governor practically calls upon people to "arise in their might" and put down such lawlessnesc. His proclamation in this case is the strongest demand he has yet made for suppression of such crimes. He says : "If two or three men had gone to 'his poor cabin and murdered the family the crime would have shocked humanity with its revelation of the incredible wickedness, brutality law-lovi- liberty,. uphold their law and rise up in their might to save their merci- lessly put down murder, arson intimation and proscription wherever they dare to show themselves." SOLDIERS HAVE SKIRMISH. About 8 o'clock, Sunday night, two men or boys were seen sneaking about the yards of the Mengel Box Co., by the soldiers who are there on guard, When called to halt by one of the guards, they beat a hasty retreat and made their escape by going through a gap in the fence. The soldiers fired some 25 or JO shots at the fleeing figures, but whether or not they were hit is not known. Another attempt was made last night aoout 9 o'clock to force an en trance to the grounds by a man in a much interest. After the games, the guests were invited out to the dining room, which was partially darkened. An under table course was the source of much fun. Their hands were kept under the table. and they were told not to look. e The refreshments were from one to the other passed and such articles as frozen biscuit dough, potato filled with pins, furs, wet chamois skins and such were the source of much merriment.

He didn't believe in it ; an object lesson would not do him any good. He is just simply a sour old, cuss. Its a gratifying fact that this class of merchants are scarce in Hickman. The men who make this the best town in Kentucky, are the men who push who know the value of printers ink. They know advertising is a business factor know it pays. It sells goods, unites loving hearts' disposes of baby-cabmakes the mare go and returns a long lost bull pup to a "lobster." Advertising brings business to the bug eradicator, trades a consumptive automobile for a doped plug, disposes of gold bricks to "good things," makes folks think they have symptoms of diseases cured by patent medicines and sells parrots to the unwary. Advertising, like a bumble-behas two ends one that bumbles and one that kicks back with a stinger in its tail. Advertising has made poor men rich and rich men poor ; it has been bread and meat for the successful advocate of its virtues and wrecking shoal for thousands who have overestimated their persuasive qualities. It is the golden sesame that unlocks the palace of Opportunity, but a two edged sword to the man who understands it not and trifles with its favor. Like the knight who went in to win his lady love or die, so must advertising be approached in the financial sense. It breaks or it makes. Linked with good common sense it triumphs for its traveling mate. Joined to a coward or an ass, it falls amuck and drags its partner along with it. It is more certain than a woman and as reliable as the corn crop in Fulton county, if wisely used. A fool should not play skyrocket with fire brands, neither should a monkey try to make monadey with ads. Fundamentally ministered it is as certain to produce satisfying results as Is the surmise that the young couple who sell their baby-ca- b after the first born has outgrown it will have to buy another.

Ho wondered why they should go so far awny from Vera Cruz and why they should not remain In somo place of considerable size. Mike figured that they bad loft their train before reaching the City of Mexico and caught a train for Jimenez nt somo other placo than tho central station. He also believed that they would depart from tho capital nt tho earliest possibles moment. His tlmo table showed that they could havo caught a train which preceded tho one on which ho traveled.

"It will bo an exceedingly Interest ing tlmo for yon." said Mr. Halllngton. 'Then you know all about It?" "I know what has brought you to Kscalon," returned Mr. Hnlllngton. Jerry had almost two days In which to prepare, for tho search for tho lost gold mine. Tho question uppermost In his mind wns tho matter of select Ing n companion. After reading the Instructions In tho City of Mexico he decided that Mike O'Connor should go with blm, but now that ho hnd not heard from tho engineer and hnd de cided that bis services could not be counted on any longer, ho felt he could do no better than to accept some experienced man suggested by Mr. Halllngton. Shortly after noon tho next day, aft cr bo had learned much from Mr, llnl llngton relative to tho trip Into tho so u n tains, ha went to n restaurant with an appetite that could easily be satisfied. Ho sat nt a table from which ho could look into tho street, and aa ho nibbled nt his victuals his gloom was Inexpressibly great Tho coffee bad Juat been brought to htm when bis ryes almost "poppod out of ihelr aocketa. Casting his eyes from one side to tho other, Mike O'Connor was moving slowly down tho street- - Jorry rapped on the window tramo so excitedly that tho waiter and other customers were startled. Mike did not seo him until ho called out at tho top of bis voice, A minute later tho engineer, a srallo lighting his rugged features, was grasping tho almost ecstatically eager hand of Jerry Chambers. Mlko sat down at tho tnblo and soon was trying to answer question after quMtlon that Jerry burled st htm. "I told you I'd stick to the finish, didn't I, Tommy?" said Mike; "and 1 and watched another coach being added to the train. Considerable tlmo was taken In switching to the main track, and he sat down on a truck to smoke his pipe. Just as ho struck a match, which, he afterwards thanked bis lucky stars, did not light, bo saw five persons three men and two women leavo tho dark Httlo station and movo briskly towards the added coach. "It's thirol" ho almost muttered to himself, his plpo falling from his hand, "and thank hlvvcn they didn't see me! If I could only get word to Tommy to head 'cm off! But I can't, and chances aro ho wouldn't get tho word In time, nnyway. Hut," darting around the station, "I'll take a chance." Ho was near tho telegrapher when the engine bell began to ring and the order to move was given. Tho tlmo to write a messago was too short, and, pulling his hat down over his eyes, ho ran to tho train. The first thought that flashed across bis mind after he was aboard was that cither Andre or Fellpo would go through the train with eyes fixed for either him or Jerry. The train had not proceeded far before ho was talking with the conductor. CHAPTER XXII-O- n "I'd give almost anything to ride the Road to Jimenez. on an lnglne," said he.

Hut as the last car swept past him ho saw a carriage moving away from tho other sldo of tho track. He ran to the end of tho platform and cast his eyes after tho vehicle, which soon was lost in tho darkness. Then, not knowing what courso to take, ho approached a policeman and asked where tho street led to. "To tho mountains." was the answer. "The city's down tho other war." "Was that a station conveyance, that Just went away?" he asked, and the officer eyed him closely. "It doesn't ordinarily meet trains," was the nnswer. "Why did you want to know?" "I thought maybe an old friend o' mine Aurello Zacnte was drlvln'. 1 hnvo como all the way from tho south to seo him, and tho last I hoard o' him he was drlvln a rig hero." Ilefore Mike bad thought of hiring a cab and following the carrlago the officer said something about its being one of the only two vehicles of tho kind In tho city. Knowing that ho could do nothing further that night, ho sat down on a box and engaged the officer In conversation. Tho policeman was a willing talker, for Mlko had a bottle of extra lino whisky, which he extended often to him. They had conversed fully an hour, when a carriage camo towards tbem. "That's the carriage," said the policeman, "is that your friend driving?" "Aurello didn't wear n mustache when I snw him last," Bald Mlko, "and ho didn't nppear bo skinny. The carriage couldn't havo gonv very Jar." "No; perhaps not further than the rlvor tho Florldo. Perhaps thu people In thu carrlago took a small boat down tho river. Many folks spend the hot weather down there," "An particularly attractive spots down tho river?" "Some beauties, but I don't think I'd go down there. Fifty miles southwest Is pretty tough. We know of Keveral gangs that havo headquarters down that way, but we've novor been able to locato thorn." that all tho stcamshnvol in tho unl- verso could not get at It." When Mlko went to a cheap hotel that tilght ho felt certain that tho five had taken a boat for some point down tho river, and, recalling that tho captain of tho yacht had mentioned a trip of about 24 hours, ho calculated that their destination must bo far down the stream. Ho also decided that be could accomplish but Httlo nlono, and that tbo first morning train should havo him as a passenger back to K calon, where ho would try to locato "Tommy Flannery" and apprise him of tho developments.
