ESTABLISHED IO.a.14.1 IN THE TEAR 1HBI Miss in front, and keeping tnerer that's the way Marathon races are won. It?s the way else in this world is won; and no man who wants to win can afford to neglect anything, great or small, which may contribute to his being in front. ' You want to win success in your undertakings, whatever they may be; and one of the things which every man needs and ought to be sure of, is good clothes; they help your appearance, add to your effectiveness, make you feel more successful; and there's a lot in the way a man feels who is trying to win. I jr ETTING Vi- anything Mo., and Thos. R. Powell, formerly of this city nnd a son of Mrs. M. E Powell, were married Monday afternoon, March 21st, at Clayton, Mo., a small berg near St. Louis. Although the young people had been engaged for some time and their marriage was expected, they wished to surprise their friends and keep the cermoney secret a few days. This desire led to the unusual scene of their nuptials. After getting their license at the court house they casually strolled across the street to the drug store, where Miss Evelyn Callen Is the prescription clerk. Miss Callen wears a "Kappa Alpha" fraternity pin slven hr--r by a young man rt Ferguson. Powell was a member of this fraternity at Missiourl State University, where he and Miss Gillaspy met. A question disclosed that the owner of the little trinket was also a M. S. U. man. Miss Callen was at once enlisted in the plan for secrecy. She telephoned Rev. Walter Lane- try and he performed the cermoney in the proprietor's office. Mr and Mrs. Powell then returned to St. Louis. Mr. Powell was reared in this city and is well known to most of our readers. He is a bright, hustling young fellow and has many friends who will join us in extending congratulations. He has been attending the University at Columbia preparatory to a journalistic career, and we know he will "make good" in this capacity, having been identified with this paper in 1906. The bride is a lovable young lady, accomplished and will make a splendid helpmeet. The Courier editors knew this young lady long before Mr. Powell ever made ber acquaintance, and can say that she is one of Missouri's best. She is a daughter of J. H. Gillaspy, a wealthy farmer of near Columbia. We have .not learned where they will reside but, Tom, old boy, here's a hearty welcome to your "old Kentucky home." Powell a Benedict. Nora T. Gillaspy, of Colurri-bl- a, Night Rider Cases. The Supreme Court for the Western district of Tennessee will meet in Jackson about the second week in April and will likely pass on the sentences of the eight condemned men convicted of being members of the band of night riders who mur dered Captain Rankin at Walnut Log in October. It is not known definitelvwhen the Obion County docket will be taken up bythe higher tribunal but on account of the gravity of the sentences it ,is expected that the night rider cases wlll'be advanced and passed on at an early date. The bill introduced in the legisla ture recently that all legal executions take place at the State penitentiary has not yet passed both houses and also provides that all sentenced before the passage of the bill shall be executed at the county seat, which in the event the verdict of the lower court is affirmed will cause the executions to take place at Union City. The winter now shall end, the heavens smile on Spring. The bull frog shall woo in the gloaming, and the robin merrily sing. The calf shall cavort in the pastures with bliss in the pitch of his tail, the lark awakes in the morning and sings from the tip of a rail, the wind shall disport with the washing and pop the tails of shirts, and the modest maid go walking with shot in the hem of her skirts. The fateful ISth having happened, and Spring having burnished the dove, according to all traditions the season shall e open for love. The shall sigh for Its fellow, the hard hit af finity groan, the common unclassi fied lover shall bawl to call someone his own ; the young folks shall coo in the parlor, and the cook and the coon at the rear, the telephone wire shall be busy with dialogues sweetened with dear.

This tingle tragedy of the storm occurred near Slidcll, near the Wise county line, and located about midway between Decatur and Gainesville. The .farm house of Ira Uice was crushed In by tho furious wind, and the family of the eight members pinned beneath wreckage. A light in the house at the lime of the disaster eaued the ruins to become Ignited and, fanned by the strong wind, the flames snuffed out the lives of the helpless victims.

ESTABLISHED IN THE TEAR J HBO Names aporuur. Meets Horrible Death. Robert Oscar Caldwell, a citizen and a good man of this city, met with a horrible accident last Thursday, resulting in his death Monday. About noon, Thursday, Mr. Cald well went down to the lower factory of the Mengel Box Co., for the purpose of learning when the mill would start to running again. After spending a few minutes in the engine room, he started to go into the main factory building, walking through what he thought was a small puddle of water on the floor. This innocent looking puddle of water on the floor was nothing less than a vat ol scalding water four feet deep, which had just been drawn from one of the engine boilers for some purpose, and Mr. Caldwell walked off Into it without kiiwJii.g what it was, going into the scalding liquid up to his waist. His cries brought Quincy Taylor, the saw filer, to his 'assist ance, and Taylor managed to pull him from the hole of water in which he was being literally cooked. The unfortunate man was hurried to his home, where, when his clothing was removed, the flesh came off with the garments. Dr. C. W. Curlin was called to administer to the sufferer, but his condition was so precarious that no hope of his recovery was en tertained. He suffered untold agony, and was only relieved when death came at 7 :40 Monday night. Mr. Caldwell was born in Withe county, Va., in 1848. In 1871 he came to Fulton county, and in 1899 he moved to this city, residing here since that date. He was united in marriage with Miss Alice Barksdale in 1871, and to whom were born six children, five of them now living William Caldwell and four daugh ters, Mrs. Annice Flynn, Misses Pauline, Rena, and Lilian all of Mrs. whom reside in Hickman. Caldwell also survives her husband. By trade deceased was a carpen ter, but ill health forced him to retire from this business several years ago. During the late war, he cast his lot with the "Lost Cause" and served with distinction until the end. For 26 years he has been a member of the Baptist church, and lived an upright, Christian life. He was a manly man, and his de parture will be deplored by mends and relatives alike. Funeral services were held at the family residence at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, by Rev. Turkington, after which the remains were laid to rest in the City Cemetery. The Courier extends sympathy to the breaved ones. d, J''t"; "'." f sr.

The num. ber of conversions is approximately 150 and about half as many Rev. Klein has methods peculiarly his own in revival work possibly better than the ordinary way but unfortunately, bis methods did not elicit the popular favor which should have been accorded this worthy cause. This was anticipated by Rev. Waters, who admonished his membership in a previous sermon to with hold any criticism for at least a week. Still, there was more or less comment on it. Let this be as it may, the revival is over and the town is better for it. Rev. Klein and Terry left Sunday night for Shelbyville, Tenn., where they will hold a meeting, beginning next week.

Look as they might through all tho staring empty rooms, thero was no vestige' of the boy. He was as clean vanished as It he had fallon out of tho closed and locked windows.

Mrs. Melvlllo kept making cautious signals to htm behind bis aunt's back; otherwise sho was preserving tho mien of sympathetic solemnity which sho was used to Bhow at funerals and first visits ot con- dolenco and congratulation to divorced friends.

"Sho Is tremendously fond ot Archie." "Oh she knows more than she will say." "Oh, what rot!" sputtered tho colo nel; then ho begged her pardon.

Out the last streaks ot rod faded out ot the west; a chill fog smoked up from tho darkening hills, and Archie had not come. At eight, Mrs. Winter ordered dinner to bo served In their rooms, Mrs. Smith had not returned.

"Yes," he Said, Very Quietly, "It Is Blood.' she'd got tho cratur. Nor I wasn't objcctln', for I'm thinking there'll be something doln and tho wlmln Is thlm times." The colonel admitted that he shared Haley's opinion. Ho questioned the man minutely about Mercer's conduct on tho train. It was absolutely commonplace. It he had any connection (as the colonel had suspected) with tho bandits, ho made no sign. Ho sent no telegrams; ho wroto no letters; ho mado no acquaintances, smoking hit solitary cigar over a newspaper. Indeed, absolutely the only matter, ot note (If.that wcro one) was that he read so many newspapers every buying different Journal vended. At San Frnnclsco ho got Into a cab and Haloy heard him glvo the order: "To tho St. Francis." Having his wife and child with hlra, tbo sergeant couldn't follow; but he went uround to tho St. Francis later, and Inquired for Mr. Mercer, for whom I.o had a letter (as was Indeed tho case the colonel having provided him with one), but no such namo appeared on thq register.

Sho wat co- guardian with him ot tho boy, who, ho had no doubt had been spirited away by Mercer and his accomplice; and hadn't she a right to any Information on tho matter In hit possession? Reluctantly ho admitted that she did havo such n right; nnd, ho ad mitted further, being a man who never cheated at solitaire, that his object In keeping tho talk ot tho two men from her had not been so much the desire to guard her nerves (which ho know perfectly well wcro of a rebutter fiber than thoso ot most women 20 or IU years younger than sbo); no, ho admitted It grimly, ho had not so much spared his aunt as Janet Smith; he could not bear to direct suspicion to ward her, Uut how could ho keep silent longer? Kicking thU question about In his mind, ho spoiled tbo flavor r cigar, nlthough hit ot his aunt graciously bado him tmoko It In her parlor.

' Here tho telephone boll rang; tho manager Informed Col, Winter that Mrs. Wlgglesworth had returned. "Wlgglesworth?

Hho was half-waacross tbo threshold beforo sho finished, and the colonel's flngert on the doorknob waited only for tho closing ot her door to turn to admit tho lady In waiting. A lady tho wat beyond doubt, and any ono who had traveled would havo been turn that tbo was a lady from Massachusetts. She wore that little cloio bonnet which certain elderly Iloston gentlewomen can nolthnr bo driven nor allured to abandon; hor rich and quiet black silken gown might have been made any year wthln the last five, and' her furs would ham graced a princess. Sho had beautiful gray hair nnd n soft complexion nnd wore glasses. Equally evident to tho observer was tho fact ot her suppressed agitation. Sho waved aside the colonel's proffered chair, Introducing herself In a musical, almost tremulous volco with the crltp enunciation of her section of tho country.

Few objects are richer for the contemplation of the d truly man than is a young woman who lives, acts, speaks and exetts her powers for an enlightening conviction of duty in whose is the soul voice of duty of God. In such woman there is a mighty force of moral power. Though they may be as gentle as a lamb, or modest In their demeanor, there is in them what commands respect, what enforces esteem. They are the strong women. The sun is not truer in its course than they are to theirs. They are reliable as the everlasting rocks. Every day finds them in the same beautiful, steady and moral firmness. Men look to them with confidence that knows no douot. They are fearless and brave, they have but to know their duty, to be ready to engage in it, and though men laugh and sneer, though the world frown and threaten they will keep at it. No character is complete until It is swayed and elevated by renblne piety. No heart is fully happy till it is imbued with tne spirit ot piety. No life is all it may and should be until it is baptised in the waters of piety. This divine grace of the soul should be sought by every young woman and cultivated with the most assiduous care, for without it she is destitute of the highest beauty and divinest charm and pow er ot womanhood. high-minde- wv, wuiimanuc, conn.
