TYLER, as fie appeared In 1862 'when caplaln in Forrest's Cavalry Last but not least was a company of Home Militia organized in 1861 by Capt. Thomas R. McMahon, to protect Hickman against the encroachments of the Federal gunboats. A Confederate flag floating from the banks of the river was supposed to be likely to provoke an attack from the passing gunboats. brave guards, armed with rifles, flint-loc- k muskets, pitchforks, battle-axespears, spades and other hostile weapons, were ready to protect their flag or shed their last drop of blood, when, lo, the boats steamed by without even noticing the defiant banner supported by its valiant defenders. The Union cause had few representatives in the county, slfs oldiers enlisted elsewhere, no records have been kept, except of one man Joseph Dougal, who served with distinction. Hickman, the county seat, is sit uated on the southeastern bank of the Mississippi river and was incor porated in 1837. "Prior to 1834" says Rev. White, "the site where Hickman now stands was calhd Mill's Point, in honor cf Mr. Mills who settled there in 1819. The writer visited the place in 1824, and there was but one house in it. It stood near the Millet corner and was occupied by, John Doons, whose father Jake Doons, lived about two miles on the bluff above Hickman, near where the railroad now ascends the bluff. The river was about a half mile from the cabin where John Doons lived. The sit on which Hickman stands was covered by a military survey, known and recognized as a good one. This was not questioned for several years after the first settlement of this country. G. W. L. Marr, who lived in Madrid Bend, and was a shrewd man in land matters, became satisfied that the military title was not good ; therefore, he entered the land as state land, then tested the military title by a suit of ejectment, succeed ed In getting posession of the land after a long and expensive suit. The land In dispute embraced 4,000 acres and included the site whereon Hickman now stands." The town of Hickman was laid out by A. S. Tyler, and by Mr. Marr called Hickman, in honor of his wife's maiden name. Mr. Marr held his lots at high rates, and for a time,, checked the growth of the town. Several years later he sold his possessions in and around Hickman to Samuel Wilson, which gave new life to the village. The first business house in the? town is said to have been built by Mclnstosff & Dabblebreast, 1835, s, bi, Ee.i L :(.er, Eea Menees, A Hugh Spark- - ..m. .ark, Farmer,S:burn Hamby, Rev.

Now there are six Hickman, State Line, Fulton, Cayce, Jordan and Alexander; and until last year, there were eight, but two of these Ma"bel and Luzelle have been abolished. Fulton county was, during the civil war, the scene of military activity by both Confederate and Federals. In addition to the operation of the regular troops of the great armies, hordes of guerrillas swept over the county, destroying life and property indiscriminately. The Confederate cause was represented by several organizations that did heroic services on many fields. Among these organizations the following are mentioned: The Alexander Guards, commanded by Capt. Edward Crossland, went to Virginia and participated in the first battle of Bull Run in 1861. Capt. John A. Lauderdale organized a company which went to Tennessee and joined the Fifth Tennessee Cavalry. He afterwards became Major and was assigned to the Quartermaster's department. Capt. Henry Campbell raised a company which went to Columbus, Ky., joined the Seventh Ky. Infantry, and was subsequently mounted to operate with Forrest's Cavary. Capt. Henry A. Tyler recruited a company that fought with Forrest thro' the war.

The nineteenth annual reunion of the I'nltcd Confederate Veterans wltljbe held Jn this city June 8, 9 'and 10. These dates are officially announced by Gen. Win. K. Mickle, ad jutant-genernnd chief of stall to lien. Clement A. Kvans, commander-in-chie- f Of the United Confederate Veterans. The date were selected at a conference held with W, J. Crawford, chairman, and the executive reunion committee. In speaking of the coming reunion, Gen. Stickle said: "I am going to use every clloft I know of to make the reunion of 1009 one of the grandest and biggest ever given. "I am .Inclined to believe more people will come to Memphis this year than ha attended any reunion for tho past ten years. Of course, this must not be un derstood that more old soldiers will be here, because that would lie impossible. The commands are thinning out. I estimate, however, that wo still have nlxmt 60,000 left in our organization. Hut, . of course, there are hundreds of them unable to travel, and therefore cannot go to minions. It's Ihe general public now scattered all over the South, West and Southwest that always goes to thew reunion, and I believe this oue to be, given ,at MerapLla will draw at least J25.OO0 people."

If there was a little more work and less recreation attached to jail sentences, there would be fewer jailbirds, and more mcney in the county treasury. Things Worth Knowing.

Hlght now In winter farmers with the very best conditions for good gardens are buying cabbage and onions from the stores when they could have grown them with only a little labor. Many others are doing without them entirely. It seems that every farmer ought to grow all the vegetables for the family needs each year, and for all the year, and havo some for sale, rather than b compelled to buy. Many gardeners never have a crop of celery, egg plant, asparagus, horse-radliparsnips, carrots snd many other wbolesomo vegetables, simply becauie they think they are not able to grow them. It Is true that soma people seem to have more "luck" than others with garden plsnts. However, luck, In gardening, Is simply the result of earnest and intelligent work. The trouble with many people Is that they do not actually lore garden work' or any other work for that matter, will never succeed at It. Uut tho one who loves plants and loves to grow them can grow anything In the garden line.

Many Hickman people take their U lives in their hands by neglecting the kidneys when they know these organs need help. Sick kidneys are responsible for a vast amount of suffering and ill health, but there is no need to suffer nor to remain In danger when all diseases and aches and pains due to weak kidneys can be quickly and permanently cured by the use of Doan's Kidney Pills. Here is a Hickman citizen's recommendation. A. P. Iverbey, living In Hickman, Ky., says: "For two or three months I was troubled from the disordered condition of my kidneys. I had dull pains in the small of my back, and whenever I stooped or lifted anything, twinges sharp would cause me misery. At night the aching in my back greatly disturbed my rest and I arose in the morning feeling lame. I usually felt tired and lame and languid and nervous spells bothered me. My kidneys needed attention as was proved by the sediment contained In the secretions. Learning ol Doan's Kidney Pills, I procured a box at Helm and Ellison's drug store, and in three days they relieved me. It required but one half the contents of the box to affect a complete cure.

The two engines were locked into each other. Both trains were making about thirty miles an hour, and the engine, No. 262, in change of Conductor Conner and Engineer, Steve Gallager, was just rounding a curve, when the freight train was sighted, and although the emergency brake was used, the passenger train was not brought to a stop, and crashed into the freight train, going at a fast rate of speed. The bag gage and express car on the passenger train telescoped the mail car, and fortunately for Mail Clerk Oliver and his assistants, who were working in the front end of the car, or certain death would have been their part. Expressman Roach was thrown from one end of his car to the other with much force, and was considerably bruised, as were the mail clerks. The. baggageman had just gone into the day coach for a drink of water, and thus saved his life. The freight train was in charge of Condu:tor Warner and Engineer Tracy. The engineers and firemen of both trains jumped, and Engineer Tracy was thrown against a fence alongside of the road and internally injured, and is in a critical condition. Engineer Gallager and Conductor Warner were painfully bruised. All were carried to Nashville, their home. The wrecking crews from Nashville, Martin and Hollow Rock Junction were early on the scene and traffic was resumed about noon. Two ladies in the day coach of the passenger train were badly bruised and all the passengers more or less shaken up and thrown out of seats. The accident happened about 1 :25 o'clock a. m.

A man who Isn't afraid to pass sentence on a monster corporation no more than he would a beggar, who had stolen a loaf of bread There is no doubting the fact that the larger the litigant's roll, the smaller the punishment given him, as a general rule. But Landis socked the' harpoon into the Standard Oil octupus to the tune of $29,000,000, although he had noth-- , iog against the company more than the enforcement of law, and this proves to the Courier that he is one man in a million with the nerve to pronounce sentence in the face of such a great array of legal talent and so much money. Judge Landis recently gave an accused man the minimum sentence of sixty days in the house of correction. That, however, is not the interesting part of the story which is involved in subsequent proceedings. From the Chicago Record-Heral- d report the following is taken. The prisoner turned away from the bench to the deputy marshal waiting to take him to jail. He turned his coat collar up around his Bring WOMEN Her With Youl ?, Tin Vulcm Pltw Ci throat. "Aronson," exclaimed the court sharply, "where's your overcoat? "Your honor," said the "white slaver," "I ain't got none. That was one of the first things I soaked when I come to Chicago." "Bailiff,'' said the judge, "get mine and give it to him. Now gentlemen," he added, turning to the lawyers, "we'll proceed with the next case." An hour later Judge Landiss thin figure was breasting the breeze that tore down Dearborn street. "Hi, there, Judge," shouted a friend, "where's your overcoat?" " I used It to light a fire." "Used it to light a fire?" "Yes," said Judge Landis, "I used it to light a fire to keep warm inside of me the spirit of charity that life in a great city Chicago tends to know better than men what is good Cloth.

Emily Rebecca Johnson was born in Butler County, Ky., on the 21st day of July, 1817, and departed this life at the residence of her son Her-schP. Johnson, in Cayce, Fulton County, Ky., on the 23d day of January, 1909, aged ninety one years, six months and two days. She was the daughter of Jeremiah night was too dark or day too stormy for her not to seek and comfort the distressed or attend the sick. For her kindness and benevolence the Lord granted unto her a long life of usefulness, and gave her health and strength far beyond that allotted to many others. So greatly was she blessed in this particular, that she kept house and did her own work until she was eighty-fou- r years of age. For more than seventy five years she was a faithful follower of Christ, and the advancement of the Church was her constant desire until she fell asleep in Jesus. Impressive funeral services were conducted at the residence of her baby boy, where she died, by Elder K. M. Myatt, in the presence of a large assembly of relatives and friends. His text was Psalms 17- 15, "As for me, I will behold Thy face in righteousness ; I shall be satisfied when I awake with Thy likeness." This text was selected, by the minister at her request, as it was one of her favorite passages of Scripture. After the services were concluded, her body was laid at rest in the Johnson family grave yard. Well Finished, Strong, Durable, Light Draft.

It Is a simple method which farmers .havo long been accustomed tc adopt where flour and other necessaries were concerned. The farmers aro eager to find a cheap source or energy. Nowadays multitudes of them uso gasolcno fnt such purposes as grinding' feed; cut ting fodder and running 'the corn shelter, circular saw, horse clipper and grindstone. A farm in theso times is more ot less ot a factory- - Hut gasolene Is expensive.

Even bo ate will though Presidentelect Tafl and the houso wnys nnd means committee should Jointly battle for the toilet ot consumors, we aro told to expect certain emasculation of n genuine tariff reform bill by tho upper house. Thnt might mean n presidential veto, and an nppeal to tho people. And again It might not. Politically, it would merely mean that the Republicans were making an attempt to keep faith with the people, and thnt tho senate must tako all responsibility for failure to do so. A dog that chases his tall In n neverending clrclo seems to be very much In earnest. Tho results aro not commensurate with the dog's apparent sincerity ot purpose. Tho tariff standpatters would llko to pacify popular sentiment without accomplishing anything In tho way ot real tnrlff reform. It all resolves Itself into whether the Republicans, as a national. party. means to back up their tariff reform pledges with real legislation In tho Interest ot consumors, or whether these pledges wero for pobe litical effect only. The senate-madominated by trust agents, but that Is not necessarily a final obstruction. There are methods of bringing even t rebellious senate to terms. If tho ad ministration desires to heed the people's voice. We will soon seo how much of the Republican programme is based on the known wishes of tho great body of consumers. Tho robber trusts do not seem especially perturbed. They will not object to a game of politics in tho houso. It their atandpat friends In tho senate consent to act tho role ot scapegoat. Meanwhile, state after stato In the producing west Is declaring for popular election of United States senators, which may havo a sobering effect on tho standpat program. nnto-elcctlo- n Certain secret service agents, paid by tho people of Iho United Slates, woro used by a president of the United States as spies or private- detectives In nn Investigation that was prompted by personal hatred. Tho discoveries of these secret scrvlco agents In the ease of Senator .Tillman either wero such as to, require the prosecution of Benator" Tillman by tho government authorities or they did not warrant legal proceedings against him. If iho evldeneo collected by the spies who hounded the man whom Mr. Roosevelt hated wan sufilclcnt to wnrrnnt his prosecution under the laws of tho United Btates, then Mr Roosevelt not only failed In his sworn duty but ho also gavo tho llo to his own professions as contained In a messago addressed to congress five dnys ago, when he said: "If I had proof of such corruption affecting any member of tho houso in any matter as to which tho fedoral government has Jurisdiction action would at once havo been brought, as was done In tho cases of Senators Mitchell and Hurton nnd RepresentaHerrmann and tives Williamson.

It this Is tho not spoils ot tho chase First, beIt Is doubly unfortunate cause Senator Tillman has dono tho country somo real sorvlce, and even has enlisted heartily In support of good Roosevelt measures, although a Democrat, with no love for either Roosevelt or Roosevelt's party. Secondly, because Senator Tillman was notoriously n personal enemy of the president, and . whatever Indictment Mr. Roosevelt might bring against him would lose weight by reason ot that fact, Dut It does not seem that Tillman has committed any crime, or ho surely would have been under prosecution for It by this time. Inasmuch as the secret service operators did not bring in KoraKer tor nis relations witn Standard Oil, and failed to entrap any other members of congress constantly engaged In sorvlng special Interests, it certainly seems that, whatever any members of congress might have) to thieves there was fear from letter-fllno real reason tor any ot them to fear the secret serlvcc. o T Is peasant 'to havo Senator Illack- -l 1 burn back In. our midst again, to see. his great, stalwart form Bwlnglng through the streets, ti meet his smile and to feel his, heart)'' hand clasp, but It is difficult to think ot him in any environment save that ot tho senate chamber whero ho passed so many years.

" If any woman who is suffering with any ailment peculiar to her sex will ask her neighbors this question, she will be surprised at the result. There is hanlly a community in this country where women cannot be found who have been restored to health by this famous old remedy, made exclusively from a simple formula of roots and herbs. During the past 30 years we have published thousands of letters from these grateful women who have been cured by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and never in all that time have we published a testimonial without the writer's special permission. Never have we knowingly published a testimonial that was not truthful and genuine. Merc is one just received a few days ago.
