UITS M W Never Was There Jl Greater Range Of Styles... For dressy wear, the Directoire styles are the very latest thing from Paris. The extreme types will, of course, not be worn by American women. For everyday wear there is a return to the strictly tailor made, very trim smart styles, that depend more on lines than trimming for their charm. No matter what the garment, you will notice an unmistakable style to the coats we show this fall. The originals of the finer models were imported by Bischof, Stem & Stein from the most famous European houses. These have been modified to suit American tastes. Everything new everything novel, was immediately emboided in Bischof garments, and these garments we are showing this season. The materials this year are mostly to be of solid colors, soft clinging and simple. In buying a Bishop coat you run no risk you can depend on everything we tell you about them. We show them for ladies and children at any price you can afford. As we understand Mr. Roosevelt's defense of the Harriman campaign contribution 1. It was entirely proper for Mr. Roosevelt to solicit this money, because he intended to bunco Harriman and did bunco him. 2. Secrecy was necessary because Mr. Roosevelt's motives have been misconstrued by persons who would see in the transaction a sordid attempt on the part of Harriman to control the Presidency through the use of tainted money. 3. Publicity of such a contribution before election might have thwarted the high moral purpose of Mr. Roosevelt in separating Harri-ma- n from his money without giving him anything in return. 4. Other Presidential candidates should never be permitted to engage in similar negotiations, because even were they sufficiently patriotic to repudiate the moral obligation they would not be sufficiently practical to deceive a man like Harriman. 5. The fact that it was Theodore Roosevelt who did this is a complete answer to all hostile criticism. Having defended the contribution, perhaps Mr. Roosevelt will now explain just how the money was used, as Harriman said, to turn 50,000 votes in the election. low-mind- "flo to father!" abe said When I anted ber to wed: Hut lier father wax dead.

The Improved strains of cotton commence opening their bolls within 100 days from planting, and a paying crop can be taken off within 150 days. s This short period of maturing will admit of its culture us far North as the Ohio River and will add another commercial product to the long list of cash crops these two States are growing.

' .y MORE MONEY FOR COTTON OUR SHIPS MEET JAP FLEET Convention of Farmers, Merchants and Bankers to Be Held. higher price for cotton as the purpoe, a giant convention of Iwinkcrs, cotton growers, ginners and representatives of cery possible branch of Industry In the cotton belt, has been called by liarvle Jordan of Atlanta, president of the Southern Cotton Association, as the result of the consistent cry of "help" from the farmers of the South. Mr. Jordan said the present condition of the farmer and the low .price far which cotton is now selling was due to the fact that the farmers are marketing the staple too fast. He also stated the cotton had opened early this season, had been picked and sold, and most of the farmers had cleared up their debts. Mr. Jordan believes that the bankers of other Southern States would follow in the footsteps of those of Alabama, who had offered their assistance to the farm ers, and aid them in holding their cotton until something could be done, and the downward tendency of the market price of cotton could bo checked. "While the convention Is not called for the purpose of suppressing night riding, which has been going on iu thd South, said Mr. Jordan, "I lielieve that when the farmers see the people are coming to their assistance, and everything oints to an advance in the price of cotton, U will result in accomplishing in a. legitimate way what the night riders ant. trying ,. to do by lawlessness." It is estimated that the meetini? will bring from 8,000 to 10,000 liankcrs, farmers and representatives of othertbus- InesH Interests to Memphis to fight, for . the great cause.

The country still has confidence in personal integrity of both Mr. Bryan and Mr. Taft, and both are entirely free from any taint of slime that may have been lift in the trail of the corrupting trusts. Whatever may be thought of Sena, tor Foraker or Gov. Haskell, there can be no proper suspicion in any candid and wellbalanced mind that either the Republican or Democratic presidential candidate has been remotely influenced by the Standard Oil monopoly. They are both men in whose personal honor the nation can repose the fullest trust. Mr. Hearst's purpose in reading the damaging letters which he bad by some surreptitious method peculiar to the ways of yellow -. journ-alism j The V The Effect. got into his possession, was to sustain his theory that both of the old political parties are influenced by trust curruption and that his Independence party can alone be re- - of public affairs. He succeeded only in tarnishing the reputation of individuals. There have been corruptions in all times, and could not be a great organization into which they would net creep. Even among the twelve chosen by the Lord was the Iscariot. The proved iniquities of individual Democrats and Republicans give no proof that Mr. Hearst can organize a party of political saints. The record of the man who manipulated the malodorous Buffalo convention through Murphy and "Fngy" Con-nerone of whom he had formerly cartooned in convict stripes; (he-man who sent Max inmsen ioutn with a big corruption fund to buy delegates to the St. Louis convention in 1904 ; the man who conducts the yellowest of yellow newspapers, always preferring sensation to the ttuth; the man who procures his proofs of others' guilt by methods repellaut to the, instincts of the gentleman, can hardly be trusted to organize an immaculate political For these reasons it organization. can hardly be supposed that what Mr Hearst revealed will in itself do my damage to the candidacy of Mr. Bryan or Mr. Taft, or promote the chances of the Independence party. These revelations have not advantageously advertised Mr. Hisgen but on the contrary have emphasized his personal dependence on the man who nominated him. Mr. Hearst made a tactical mistake in advertising himself at Hisgen's expense. He should have had his candidate read the Archbold letters in order to procure the best effect for the Inde- pendencc party, but personal vanity and the good of the Hearst news papers appears to have triumphed over purely political considerations. Incidentally, it is possible that the Taft cause may have suffered some from the precipitate interference of Mr. Roosevelt. The President has not damaged Mr. Bryan, but he has increased the impression that Mr. Taft lacks individual force and is the candidate of the administration. He has, too, unnecessarily antagonized a large conservative element on which Mr, Taft must in great measure depend for his election, Mr. Taft's comment on the Hearst revelations concerning Stntor For- aker was that he would not strike a man when he was down. That was tactful, diplomatic and sufficient. The known antagonism between Mr. s, To-da- y a bundle swathsd Ilka, In down; To-da- y boy brown To-da- y tannad and a triumph and a namt; "What la waalth and I Timor To-da- a lovar, trua and bold; striving hard for goldl the last dtsccndlng sun; Lift on earth li donil element, he should remember that the two McKinley elections as well as his own election in 1904 were conservative triumphs and that it is not necessary to prove Mr. Taft the enemy of organized capital in order to show that he is free from corrupt influence. The Hearst revelation have serv' ed to bring some perturbation into what was otherwise a remarkably quiet compaign. They gave quite a shock to Gen. Apathy, as well as to public sensibilities. The noise they created will very likely have ceased to reverberate before November. Neither Bryan nor Taft has been visibly diminished and Hisgen Is not in any respect exalted. In any direct manner the result is not likely to be affected by anything Mr. Hearst has revealed. would more Stomach troubles quickly disappear if the idea - of treating the cause, reather than the effect, would come into practice. A tiny, inside, bidden nerve, says and gives Dr. Shoop, governs strength to the stomach. A branch also goes to the Heart, and one to Kidneys.

As stated in the Courier the first of the year, the contention as to the ownership of Reelfoot Lake has brought about the present trouble. The lake, as most of you know, was formed by an earthquake In 1811, and since has been one of the most famous fishing lakes in the country. Several years ago, individuals set up claims to exclusive rights in fishing on the lake, and from that time on the courts have been filled with lawsuits to gain possession of it. Finally the Reelfoot Lake Fishing Co. was organized and then leased the fishing privileges from the West Tennessee Real Estate Co., said to be the owners of the lake. This lease was held to be valid.by Judge Harris, of Obion county, who held that the fishermen on the lake must sell their catches to the Reelfoot Lake Co. This naturally aroused the bitterest feeling on the part of the old fishermen, most of whom were born and reared on the lake, and knew no other vocation than that of fishing for a living. Following this, an efforf was made to drain All this put Judge Harris and the members of the land company in a bad light so far as the lake people were concerned. Harris has been shot at twice, and is said never sleeps under his own roof, fearing assassination. The last trouble in the lake district was in the spring. Masked men rode up to Samberg, a small postoffice In Obion county, near the lake, April 15, and at the point of 'revolvers, lorced John Shaw, keeper of the Reelfoot Lake storehouse, and his helper, Walter Pleasant, to carry coal oil several miles distant. Here they called on the guards to come out, and they were stood in line, with hands stretched heavenward, while the mob forced Shaw and Pleasant to set fire to the storehouses. The masked men stood by until the houses were burned to the ground, and then told the shopkeepers they had five days to leave the The two men said one country. day was sufficient, and struck out and have not been seen since. It seems that previous to the above trouble, the fishermen had a lawsuit with the men who claimed to own the lake, or rather contended for its possession. In this case they are said to have employed, by raising among themselves S800, Col. Taylor and Capt. Rankin to represent them In their suit ; that after they lost their case, they learned that Rankin and Taylor were members of the land company, an 1 had not given them a square deal. This caused the fishermen to make demands on the company, followed by threats of vengeance. Col. Taylor desired the protection, in some form, of the State, and he secured the passage in the Legisla. ture of an act regulating fishing on Reelfoot Lake. This act made it a misdemeanor to fish in the lake without first paying a heavy penalty or served more This fee. only thoroughly to arouse the fishermen. Fearing trouble, Capt, Rankin and Col. Taylor have remained from the vicinity of the lake for some time Recently, however, they heard that the feeling against them' had somewhat substided. There were some legel papers at Walnut Log which needed attention, and (he attorneys went there Monday to see about them. Before they left Hickman, they were told that it was a hazardous undertaking.

They obtained Siberia on the coast of Africa, built Its capital and nam ed It Monrovia for James Monroe Many emancipationists liberated their slaves and sent them to Siberia They advocated peaceful emancipa tion and wanted the United States government to pay slave owners $400 for d negro men and proportionate prices for women and children. If this could have been done the Civil War would have been obviated and we should have no race problem now. All the thousands of lives lost in the Northern and South ern armies, and the millions and bil lions of dollars paid out to carry on the war on both sides and the pen siona would have been saved. But the abolitionists and demo crats fought the emancipationists then )ust as the republicans and democrats fight the prohibitionists and independent voters now. The abolitionists demanded the slaves be liberated and made citi zens. The democrats demanded that they remain in slavery, and these two parties admitted no mid. die ground for emancipationists. Henry Clay wanted to be presi dent and rinding that emancipation was not popular he founded the great protective tariff under the old line whig party. After laying the foun dation for the protective tariff he saw it grow until it frightened him. If he had been able to stop the war he would have done so. He intro duced one compromise after another, but he knew they were only temporary. After the great Missuori Com promise was passed he said to Thos Benton in the presence of Jefferson Davis "The war has been put off for thirty years. You and I shall not live to see it, but our young friend here, pointing to Davis, will live to see it Still the tariff grew, and if Clay, its founder, had lived to see one more presidential election he would have voted the democratic ticket and been forever branded as a traitor to his able-bodie- BostonioD Shoes !

England did not want to fight us. She had all she could do to fight Na poleon. But he took advantage of the French Revolution, the sympa thy of the democrats in the United States because France had aided us in our Revolution and sent ministers here to stir up strife between our government and the populace. Madison wanted another term as president, and yielded to the popular clamor for war. There was as little need for the Spanish War. Spain was in no condition to fight the United States and wanted no war. She proposed that if the United States would become security for the $400,000 she had spent on Cuba that she would give Cuba freedom. Mr. McKinley issued a proclamation favoring our becoming security for this debt, but the demagogues at once shouted 'Coward, coward," sent him some sacks of sand, and the papers begun to declare that our president needed a back-bonsome sand in his gizzard, He wanted to be president etc. again, and yielded to the popular out-crcongress voted $2,000,000 at once to carry on the war when it refused to vote one fourth this much as security to keep the peace. Statesmen tell us that the life of the republic is trembling in the balNick Longworth has ance told us that it is agreed that Judge Taft is to be president for eight years, then the "Big Stick" is to govern the country for eight more years, ana modesty loroids that tie hould say who is to be next. He now denies saying this, but 5,000 people who heard him, say he said We know that the President and office holders forced Taft on the people, The rank and file of the republican party is not for Taft. But the "Big Stick" nominated him and Teddy is managing his campaign, and will manage it until the Novem ber election. Do the people who know him think he will lay down the lines after the election to suit him- e, y. self? Thinking sober men of all parties are pondering these things. We have, six or seven tickets in the field, but every body knows "Bill Taft or Bill Bryan" will be elected. Sober, discreet men are supporting Bryan who have not voted the demo cratic ticket for years. Others are thinking of voting jt, but demagogues are hooting and yelling at them, and telling them they must do penance before they can associate with democrats. These men are denouncing the governor for calling out troops to guard our factories when they were asked for by as true a demo crat as our county has. Demagogues make infiamatory speeches, smutty jokes to arouse the prejudice of such men as make night-rider- s and burn factories while they are just playing into the hands of the If a good man produce gamblers. makes a sound sensible argument he is no speaker because he has not appealed to the prejudice of the extreme element.

The first thing Mike ,ald was: "I had a dlvll of a dream. Tommy. 1 dreamed I saw a man goln' down the other side o' tho .stream with a lantern1 In his hand, and ho had a dog with him.

The dog kept barkln' and barkln' till It sounded like It was miles away. I think I woke up, but I'm not sure about It." "What's the did saying about dreaming the first night In a new bedr' laughed Jerry. "It's a sign the dream comes true," answered Mike; "but I don't want this one to come, true. That dog was a big dlvll, and the man looked all In a hump. I don't remember what kind of a faco ho had, but It must 'a' been a dandy to wako me 'up." After breakfast thoy started out on a tour of Investigation, Jerry going down the stream In tho boat and Mike picking his way up along the bank. On hla return to the camp Jerry kept on tho other side of tho river. Ho was nearlng tho camp when he noticed an He opening In the underbrush. grounded tho skiff and went up to It.

They had nlmost reached tho base of tho cliff when the faint barking of a dog reached the lr ears. "Did you hoar It, Tommy?" asked Mlko. "It was that same dream dog of yours, Mike." "Then, by golly, It wasn't n dream after all, was It? It sounds Just like It sounded last night." Tho barking of tho dog sounded nearer and nearer, nnd tho two secluded thomsolvcs. "It's lucky wo hid tho boat In tho grass," said Jerry. "Oh, an Athlono man thinks of a thing or two," whispered Mlko. Presently they saw a big dog run up tho bank, barking as though In piny, and then plunged Into tho water. As It swam back to the bank an old man, bent with age, moving slowly, ap- pearcd In view. "That's tho old dlvll," whispered Mike, "and now I can get a look at his face. By golly, ho must bo 1,000 years old. and I'll bet he don't weigh 16 pounds. Did you ever seo such a skinny old cuss?" A few minutes later tho old man reached n spot within 20 feet of where the boat was hidden, and snt down laboriously. In faint, trembling Span lih he talked (o tho dog. "Yes. you shall have food." said he, his arms around the dripping dog's neckr, "and you shall havo sport. Ilut what nro you going to do when old Jose Is gone, faithful brother? Who will play with you then? Who will get you fish and game? Who will help you " Hero he brought his hands to his eyes and shook with sobs. With great labor ho got to his feet and The old man merely shook his head. "We'll set you somo whisky." said Jerry, nnd a few minutes later Mlko waa on his way back to tho camp. "You aro going to help mo?" fcobly asked tho otd man. "We'll do all wo can for you," answered Jerry. A smllo of appreciation lighted the otd man's wrinkled face, nnd ho trlod to lift a hand. "You are good." ho wont on; "you aro the first who has ever been good to poor old Jose." Ho looked Jerry full In tho fnco for n nlnuto before ho added: "Why should you not know what I know? You are going to holp mo and I can help you." His voice fell to n very wenk whisper and Jerry was unnblo to distinguish tho words that ho tried to speak. He thought ho was dying. When Mlko returned with whisky and soma qutnlno and a small box of food the old man secmod to regain part of his feoblo strength, and ho again could speak to bo understood. Tho whisky revived him very noticeably and ho ato freely of tho bread and cold meat. "Somo time, some time." bogsn the old man, "I am going to tell you, but not now, not now," He seemed to bo much agitated when ho went on: "Go come and now, and como bury my faithful brother.

"Whero was It the man dlsap ' . pearod?" "Right over there," answered Mike, pointing In the direction of the opening In the bushes. "Then, that's whero you saw a real man and a real dog go.

Mlko's optimism was beautiful to Jerry's mind, hut It could not dispel the gloom that darkened his hope of ever finding Marina Doatos, They arrived at Jlmenot early the next morning, whero they had to wait only an hour before they could proceed to Parral. Thoy took their tent and provisions with them, but gave tho boat to a small boy. On the outskirts of Parral they caught a train which mado tho short run between that city and OJIto, the terminus of the lino. It was late In the afternoon when they reached OJIto, and they Immediately wont to tho steps of the vlllsgo church. Tho light of tho sinking sun made red tho peak of only one mountain, which provod to be fully 60 miles away. They waited until morning before starting for tho mountain on burros with their outfit. They had not been out of the village long before they were In a denso wlldorness, tho trait winding nround hills and along dangerously steop cliffs.

Tho suggestion carried, and It was not long boforo tho tent was up, on a level spot a short way up the mountain side. For a solid week they searched for No. 14," but failed to find a trace of It, Ono going one way and tho pthcr another, they explored with " J.' i "You Are Going to Help Ms r,d I Can Help You.1 14" reasonablo thoroughness every place within a radius of a mile that could bo reached. One morning Jerry found an opening In the mountain, nnd his hopes ran high, for It appeared to havo boon artificially mado. Ho explored It as far as he could go, at times being compelled to crawl on hands and knees. Tho light of his lantern was brought to play on every ledge, his eyes forever on tho lookout for "14, Mike, big nbout tho girth, also struck what ho regarded as a posslblo lend one afternoon, at a place within a fow yards of the camp. Ho tried to squeeze his way under a hanging rock a few feet from tho opening, but lodged so that ho could not movu ono way or the other. Fortunately for him, his volco was strong enough to bo heard by Jorry, who at tho moment hnppcnod to bo nt tho camp, and his rcscilo was effected through tho efforts of his young companion. On tho night of tho seventh day at tho camp thero was undisguised de spair In tho. hearts of both men. we'vo hunted high and low, thin and deep," said Mlko, "but we d haven't nnny moro to show than clothes nnd blistered hands. 1'vo got a hump on my knee as big as besides.

Wo couldn't get over a llttlo btt of It It wo lived to be a thousand times as old as the old codger up tho river." "I can't think of anything, Mlko," gloonilly spoko Jerry. "I haven't seen anything that resembles '14' any moro mounthan I look llko this tain. Why couldn't ho havo lived long enough to tell us which wny to turn and wherd lo stop!"

The thought of being alone In that wilderness, particularly at night, caused Jerry to shudder, and moro than once that day, while hla exploring, he forced himself to sing and whistle to keep down his gloom. That night, although he was thoroughly tired, ho slept but little. All that day ho explored, but with no success. Ho had calculated that Mike would be back that night, but ha was doomed to disappointment and to another night of misery. Ho remained nt the camp until noon, and was beginning to worry over tho nonappearance of his companion. Ho left a note on a box and resumed his hunt for the hidden treasure. He went far up the mountain sldo and became so Interested In his work that he did not start back to tho camp until after ry's absence Jerry certainly It there now to explain.

Many and sad were the tales that each thread in the crape told us, and yet the busy throng passed rapidly by, little heeding the crape on the door. INFLUENCE. This piano contest will 1.

Girls do not fully realize the amount and the value of the influence they have over others. It does not cease when a girl leaves her home, to enter what is familiarly known as society. It is but begun. It is in her associations outside of the home circle, that she becomes in contart with those who are very susceptible to influence, more often to evil than to good. How often the watchful eye of a tender mother and the wise counsel of a loving sister are forgotten for the time when the young man is out among those who are supposed to be, but are not always friends. It is here that a girl's influence for good is of more value than in any other place. We often think that if girls but knew how closely their actions were watched and how often discussed, by the young men with whom they come in contact, they would surely raise the standard of their thoughts and speech to a higher plane of purity. One little word, spoken thoughtlessly, or one careless action may cause some young man to lose faith in the purity and goodness of girlhood. The girl whom we all love and honor is very careful in her choice She selects those whose of friends. presence strengthens her, socially, as well as morally. She is kind to all, but her friends are the earnest, noble hearted young men and women. She always gives a kind word to the erring one and strives to help those once fallen, back to the better path. One word from the lips of a girl may be of great importance. It may influence for good or evil. Let it be for good, girls. Let us drink in the sweets of This country is not in need of any more polished heads and idle hands. Its most crying need today is for skilled workers, men and women who care more to be useful than ornament al ; who can plow a furrow, or shoe a horse, better than they can talk philosophy or plead at the bar ; who can make a loaf of bread and boil a steak better than they can chatter French and embroider pillow shams. There is no use talking, we cannot rise above the stomach. We must live, and we must eat to live, and somebody must do the woik that living demands. Those people who will not lend a helping hand, but willingly prey on their hard working relations, are a disgrace to modern civilization. The truth is we are too ambitious, too desirous for easy places ; we'll do the eating if somebody else will do the cooking ; we'll pay the bills, too, if somebody else will earn the money ; we can't do everything ; people succeed best in pursuits congenial to them; we have no taste for drudgery, therefore we should not do it. This is about the smart logic that is being practised to the extinction of many a family. Parents take the hard and give the easy to their children. The mother tends the kitchen and dairy, and the daughters the parlor and school. This it is thought will give them grace and culture and fit them to adorn the high position they are ex pected to fill, but rarely do. Let us think on these things, and indelibly stamp it upon our hearts, that no amount of culture and ease can make amends for the lack of industry and contain a coupon good for FIVE votes.
