TOO Found A Fortune. Twenty-tw- o thousand five hundred dollars in gold and silver coin, S3. 000 worth of diamonds, a revolver and several thousand dollars in Confederate money was found by H. S. Hensley and Albert Fowler, the latter an employe of Hensley, under the hearthstone at the old residence of Nathan Ross, near Paint Lick, in Garrard County, Ky. The rich treasure had been placed there during the guerrilla times of the civil war, when Sim Berry, called and his gang of cutthroats were spreading terror in central Kentucky. Nathan Ross was one of the richest slave owners in the South and owned a magnificent estate. Hensley, who now owns the farm, was wrecking the house when the find was made, the supposition being that the treasure was placed beneath the hearth by Ross.

Getting right down to brass tacks, the city dadi have done about the best thing they could do to effect a compromise of the much agitated question of stock law. They have amended all ordinances relating to this subject so that cattle may run at large in both East and West Hickman, but will be impounded if found at large in Old Hickman. In view of the fact that most of the opposition to a stock law came from East and West Hickman, it was thought a Just measure to allow them to pasture that part of town which objected to the stock law. In cases of high water, as at present, stock coming up into the business part oMhe city will not be molested and we believe this is exactly right. Here's hoping that this will be the last of this municipal squabble and that all parties will be pleased, S3 Tim Dot son, of near Floating Bridge, and Joe Strader, of the same neighborhood, became engaged in a difficulty last week, resulting in the latter receiving a lick on the head with a post, making an ugly wound.

Indigestion cr Stomach trouble at any time, day or night. This harmless preparation will digest anything you eat and overcome a sour stomach five minutes afterwards. If your meals don't tempt you, or what little you do eat seems to fill you, or lays like a lump of lead in your stomach, or if you have heartburn, that is a sign of Indigeston. Ask your Pharmacist for a case of Pape's Diapepsin and take one triangule after supper tonight. There will be no sour risings, no belching of undigested food mixed with acid, on stomach gas or heartburn, fullness or heavy feeling in the stomach, Nausea, Debilitating Headaches, Dizziness or intestinal griping. This will all go, and, beside there will be no sour.food left over in the stomach to poison your breath with nauseous odors. Pape's Diapepsin is a certain cure for all stomach misery, because it will take hold of your food and digest it just the same as if your stomach wasn't there.

T.J T last evening Lindsey, of visiting his last week, iUlll Reason For Trouble. It wai brought out in the evidence before the Reelfoot Lake investigation committee Monday afternoon at Union City that there are probably 100 reeular fishermen on the lakes that the output was 4,500 pounui per day in the spring at Samburg and 1,800 pounds in the fall; at Walnut Log it was 1,800 per day, and the lessees receive a royalty of one-haper cent per pound. The lake covers 25,000 acres of land at low water mark. S. P. Karwood, a surveyor testified that he had known of several men who claimed to own parts of the lake, notable J. E. Wells and the Cochran heirs, but they never chargea lor lulling privileges. J. E. Bozley, another witness, said that the fisherman contended that the lake Is, or should be, public property, and they wanted the privilege of selling to anyone. Under present conditions fish can be bought only at the docks and the price is never less that 10 cents per pound ; no cheaper than they can be had in Union City or Hickman ; whereas, until two years ago, any fisherman could sell, and the price ranged from A to 6 cents while the lessees pay fishermen only from 2 to 6 cents. Other witnesses testified substantially to the same (acts. A most interesting man before the legislative committee investigating the advisability of making Reelfoot Lake, the scene of the recent night rider outrages, a hunting and fishing preserve, was W. M. Wilson, who stated that fifty years ago he claimed the ownership of the lake but "did not have mncb faith in his title" and disposed o( it at a small price. He still claims 5,000 acres, now a part of the lake, which he offers to the state for $450. This is also claimed by the West Tennessee Land Co. He expressed the opinion that holdings of the land company were worth about 315,000 If they had a title to It, and was positive, that peace would never be restored until the property was owned by the state. "Uncle" Billy Wilson, of Obion, fifty years ago owned an interest in the lake bought from W. C. Cold-wel- l, whose title was land grants from Tennessee in 1846. Mr. Wilson made a strong witness against the land company's right to ownership. Many years ago he was threatened with violence because he opposed natives removing valuable walnut logs from the lake but he was ordered to leave or tbey would make fish bait of him. He Insists now that he has no right to what he claims, but his are as good as the land company's and offers his five thous and acres to the state at fifteen cents an acre, what it cost him fifty years ago, and if the state won't pay him pay him that he will give it away that it may be public property. P. C. Ward testified as to his con- lf m IS BUGGIES They were bought right and we will sell them the same way. We have a dandy Trap for is wlictt we claim, for our line of -- feVIVgl oofes "Hickman for Christ" is the motto. Average attendance at evening services 300. Over 100 conversions have been reported up to this date. The sleepers in the church are being converted into pillars. A number of Fulton people atten-e- d the services here Tuesday night. Card parties and dancing has taken to the tall timber for the time being. Greater manifestations of interest in the work is being shown with each service. Services every day at 2 :30 and 7 :15 p. m. Make your arrangements to attend. We are glad to see a large per cent of the churches of Hickman represented in this effort to make Hickman a more Godly town. It is not known how long the meeting will continue, but we are assured that it will last until next Sunday possibly longer. Rev. Henry C. Johnson, a number of years pastor of the Methodist church here, but now stationed at Jackson, Tenn. , was here Sunday to attend the big revival and shake hands with his manyfriends. At a meeting held at the LaClede hotel yesterday morning it was decided to hold services at the Opera House every morning at 10 o clock lor the benefit of the busi ness men. The first one, held this morning, was fairly well attended. A number of workers were assigned to different sections of town and a systematic canvass of the homes is being made. Rev. Klein wants prayer services held in every home and these workers are sent out for that purpose. They are also taking the names of all the unsaved in each home. A report of the first days work showed that 50 homes were visited ; in these homes were 64 unconverted people. Rev. Klein's mode of conducting a revival differs from that of most evangelists, in that he believes in first getting the church corpses and sufficiently strengthened to take part in the testimony service and help carry the responsibility of the success of the meeting. He adds "when the church members get right with God, the unsaved will come into the fold." That's good doctrine. Preaching the gospel never drove a man from the pulpit. Failing to preach the gospel has driven many to the woods, but not enough by a large per cent. With the gospel for his subject many a preacher has grown in strength with the people, but failing to take the gospel for their subject has dropped many would-b- e preachers out of his fellow men. The gospel Is the salvation of the minister as well as his hearers, according to Rev. Kleins theory. $38.50 L . the land company to whom he pays s of a cent for each pound of fish.

The jury at May field in the case of Horace Redden, charged with the killing of Herman Humphries, failed to agree and was discharged. It will be remembered that Redden had a quarrel last summer at the home of John Wilson if ter they had been drinking. Humphries, it is alleged, threatened to give Redden a whipping with a buggy whip. The trouble ended in Redden killing Humphries. In the Standard Oil case the judge dismissed the whole jury panel because there were too many farmers So it has come to the point in it when farmers, once the backbone of the nation, are not considered fit to make a jury. When corporations are on trial they must have a jury that can be worked, see? 1 On Tueiday evening, of CV " ss.t til ii VWU.

Had Hickman people realized the treat that was coming to them they would have packed the house instead of greeting the com pany with only a audience. The acting started with a briskness that did not let up at any moment during the entire production, which immediately won attention from the audience and held It throughout. Every actor in the troupe was a star and was roundly applauded again and again. Willte was the star, with Dorothy a close second, and after them came Mr. Dickies and the tutor. The song hits, as written by Mr. Fletcher, were highly appreciated by the audience and were a feature of the play. Mrs. A. A. DeMyer, aged 78 years, one of the earliest settlers of Fultcn county, died Thursday, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Sam Binford, at Fulton. Death was due to general Infirmities.

The very sky was aa dimly colored as tho earth, lighter, yet of no brighter hue than tho fog which smoked up from tho ground. Later In tho spring this samo landscape would bo of a delicate and charming beauty; In summer or autumn it would mako tho beholder's pulse throb with Its glorious fertility; but on a blurred March morning it was as dreary as tho reveries of an aging man wno caa failed. Nevertheless Rupert Winter's first conscious sensation was not depression, only a llttlo tlngto of interest and excitement, such as stings pleasantly one who rises to a prospect of conflict In rhlch hp, has tho confidence of his own strength.
