The recent election made some ckanges in the committee, which is now as follows : East Fulton, Mack Roach. . West Fulton, Dr. J. M. Alexaider. Lodgeton, Jr W. Thomas. Cayce, W. B. McGehee. ' State Line, T. A. Prather, Jr. East Hickman, Jno. T. Dillon. Old Hickman, C. G. Schlenker. "West Hickman, A. S. Barkett. Sassafras Ridg, Coop Bradshaw. Madrid Bend, J. C. Hawkins. Chairsaan G. L. Carpenter called the meeting to order. When Secretary Dillon called the roll three committeemen were absent. Sassafras Ridge was not represented. West Fulton and Madrid Bend were represented, by proxy Mack Roach. Election of chairman being in r, Roach nominated Mott Ayers, and Schlenker placed in nomination the name of S. L. Dodds. Ayers received five of the nine votes cast, namely .East and West Fulton, Cayce, Lodgeton and Madrid Bend. Dodds received the three Hickman votes'and one from State Line. R. S. Murphy, of Fulton, was elected secretary by a like vote over Jno. Dillon, the retiring secretary. Comment on this proceeding is hardly necessary. Folks acquainted with Fulton county politics - will form thsir own conclusions. We know what to expect when the lion and the lamb gambols together on the green fields of harmony ; when the love feast is of the spider and fly variety. But Rip Van Winkle pays for his sleep by finding many changes in the old political village ; Aaron's rod has changed, slightly, too. That little gauze mask of good fellowship doesn't conceal the caucus profile. There are too many "jokers" in the pack lots of politics and little Democracy. If anyone deserves sympathy it is the Hickmanite who is toting the Ayers hod, expecting to get his pay "a little later." Mott is taking him on a snipe hunt. Carrying wat er for the elephant is paying dear for. admission. In short, it looks like local Democracy is on the wane. It is hard up ; yea. it is getting on the bum. or-de- Ivlnimr NfYP II,. ...,. fl .,n h he writ nh.,i .i Office. the same popular br.m.u ....

Last Wednesday night Operator Sam L. Peeples of the N. C. & St. L. at Martin, was examining what he thought to be an unloaded pistol. The N. C. & St. L. call boy, Will T. Griffin, was asleep in the office when the operator pointed the pistol at him, intending to snap it, but to his great surprise the pistol fired, shooting Griffin in the neck, and inflicting what was thought to be a fatal wound. The accident occurred about 11:30, and it was thought then that there was no possible chance for his recovery, but now bis friends have some faint hope that the wound will not prove fatal. The young men were each about 18 years of age and had always been close friends. Young .Peoples, Is now at his home In Gardner, Tenn., almost crazed with grief.

The While Star Line yesterday officially announced that the names of the second of its two great liners, which are to be built at Harland & Wolff's yard at Belfast, wilf be the Titanic. Incidently, it is announced that the tonnage of each vessel will be about 60,000, which is' nearly twice that of the Mauretania, the largest vessel now afloat. The keel blocks for the first of these amazing ships, the Olympic, were laid down at Belfast last week, and work is tiow progressing on her. The keel blocks for the Titanic will be lad down early in January next. Although it has been known that the White Star Line contemplated building two ships that would eclipse anything afloat, the exact tonnage has not been, known before, and the Olympic and Titanic will represent the greatest stride ever made in naval architecture. They will be near ly 1,000 feet long, and about eighty feet broad, and while they will not be built for speed, they will, it is ex pected, be able to average twenty- one knots. They will be equipped with a combination of turbine and reciprocating engines. The cost of .the two vessels will be about $17,50d!bo0. Great preparations have been go ing on at Belfast for more than a year for the construction of these giant vessels. Two new docks, each more than a thousand feet long and capable of bearing a weight of 75,-0tons, have been built and the greatest gantry in the world has been installed. A large number of men who have been idle while the yard was being prepared for these boats will now be reemployed, and it is expected that the work on them will do much to relieve the distress threatened in Belfast during the con ing winter. It is interesting to compare these two great ships with some of the other famous ships of their day. The first Cunard steamship to cross the Atlantic was the Britannia, which made the crossing in 1840. Her tonnage was 1,154, and she was 207 ft. long. The Scotis, which was referred to as an "ocean leviathan" In 1862, had a tonnage of 3,871. Still more Interesting is the com parison with the fust vessel of any kind that ever crossed the Atlantic Columbus' Santa Maria, which was 60 feet long and had a tonnage of 223. It may also be mentioned that the tonnage of either the Titanic or Olympic will be more than the total tonnage of the Spanish Armada, which was 59,120s wliile the tonnage of the English fleet which opposed it was less than half that amount.

Nearly fill a wide mouthed bottle with hot water, place the injured part over the mouth of the bottle, and press tightly. The suction will draw the llesh down, and in a minute or two the steam, will extricate the splinter and the inflamation will disappear.

Scale's Book Store Court of Appeals, The law does not apply to devises made to the Immediate family or any lineal de scendants, but only applies to estates that are left to outsiders, companies, corporations or In trust for them. The law provides that the Coun ty Clerk shall certify to the Sheriff the amount of all devises that are subject to tax, and the Sheriff col lects the money from the executor or administrator of the estate, the tax to be deducted by hhn from the amount paid to each devisee. If the tax is paid within nine months after the death of the owner of the estate, a discount of 5 per cent will be allowed, but If not paid in 18 months Interest at the rate of 10 per cent will be charged for the time that it is overdue. All the tax goes to the State of Kentucky and, according to last year's collectior 3, will not amount to such a large sum after all, as only 512,904 was collected for the last fiscal year ending June 30, 190&. The total amount collected by the State since the law went into effect up to October 28 is $18,946. DEMAND COMPLIED WITH.

He respected Klnnerty'a white hair, but tho thought of what might fall to the guard's lot if ho effected his escape was quickly brushed aside. "Flnnerty." said Jerry after a time sitting down and pressing a band to his stomach and screwing up his mouth, "get mo something for tho amnios will you! I've got 'era bad."

Jerry shoveled the refuse Into heaps near the gate of tho iJcket topped high board fence.

While Jerry was shoveling out tho contents of a big dry goods box ho came aprosB an old slouch hat.

Tho train pulled out a few minutes later, "leaving Jerry standing against the fence, a picture of despair.

Ho was ravenously hungry and so thirsty .that his throat was parched. lie brought all of his llttlo ftrength to play, but failed to open mo aoors. lie ueciueu mat no couiu not possibly get out of tho car until tho doors were unlocked, and ho sat down at.one of the larger cracks and looked out Into tho darkness.

There was a toothpick, but ho threw It to tho floor with: "That's right you rub it In, too! 1'vo had a lot of use for you!" When, very early in the morning. tho doors wore unlocked and pushed open. Jerry Chambers was almost a nervous wreck. Ha had champed and fretted, cold chills succeeding hot flashes, for hourti days It seemed to him. He wns so eager to get out of tho car that ho did not wait until tho man who unlocked tho doors had gone, and ho afterwards thanked his lucky stars that tho man was too old to give Inspection. . . "This will nover, novcr, nover do," ho said to himself- - "If thoy seo this horrible nxamplo downtown there'll be but one finish for llttlo Jerry." His trousers were rent In a dozen places and his coat was stiff with mud. Tho old slouch hat was at least three sizes too small for him, and every tlmo ho took a step the solo of his foot beat tho little remaining suggestion of tho solo of his shoe to tho ground. At six houses ho managed to beg and work for a pair of trousers, a coat, a clean flannel shirt, a fairly sound pair of shoos, much too largo for him, and a soft hat that might have been prcsontablo back In tho '80s. Tho coat was a bright checked affair and tho color of tho trousers was a faded brown. Ho scrubbed tho floor of a colored man's harbor shop for u bath and a shave (ho shaved himself as per the proprietor's ultimatum), and when ho started towards tho central business . tight-fittin- portion lo felt considerably "dressed up."

When Columbus laid a plan to discover the new world, he could not get a hearing till he applied to a woman for help. Woman equips man for the voyage of life. She is seldom a leader in any project, but meets her peculiar and best altitudes as a helper. Though man executes a project, she fits him for it, beginning in his childhood. A man discovered America, but a woman equipped the voyage ; so everywhere, man executes the performance, but woman trains the man. CHILDREN.

Not the courage to fight and die on the field of battle, but to live in one's daily work when there is much to depress ; to keep on in the struggle when failure attends the footsteps ; to stand at the post of duty when it is an obscure one and no voice of kind appreciation is heard. We need men with courage to tell the truth at the counter, even if a sale be missed; to rebuke him who utters a profane word in a public place; to speak on the unpopular side of a question ; and to vote, from deep conviction with a small majority. We need men with courage to refuse to sign a petition of an un worthy applicant for office, and courage to do anything which makes a majority to exclaim. "He is very eccentric." Some men will face the bayonet sooner than a laugh, and cares less for a blow than word of contempt. It is said to think how many have been led into intemperate and profligate habits by the fear of their comrades laugh ing at their consicentlous scruples Oh, for the courage to say "No," when sinners entice, ana to say 'Yes," when saints exhort.
