J SMITH Sp AMBERG E. E. Reeves, the popular West Hickman miller, tells us that he has kept the telative measurements of the rise in the river, and since the completion of the levees we have considerably more water at Hickman. When the Cairo guage read 48 feet before the levees were built, he made a mark where the water stood on his mill. This year when the water was 48 feet at Cairo bis mark was under water to a depth of 2 feet and 3 inches. He says that when Cairo has a water, Hickmin will have four feet more than she has ever had, according to his figures. , We might add that four feet more than the old high water mark will put the water all over Clinton street. 52-fo- ot COLORED LIST Adklson, Rogers W ?t S 3 Nos. 158 159 Bruer, Brown E B 6 S 2 249-5- 0 Brown, Aaron lira E II block 6 Nos. 257-Bennett, Bob E U 0 1 No. 60 Bragg, Manuel E j: B 4 No. 245 Barns, Ben E It B 5 No. 141 MM JJooker, Richard E It D 4 No. 217 ..

The following editorial, from the Natville American, was handed us by Mrs. S. M.

At the par ents' request he nimed the boy giving him his own name and that of Bishop Wilberforce. The boy was brought to New York and educated until he graduated from Wilberforce University a fullfledged minister of the church. He married and became the father of four children, his two sons now being educated at Oberlln University, Ohio. He returned to Africa with his wife and two chil dren, engaged in missionary work and made many converts.

Rice, of Dyersburg, Tenn., representing the Dyersburg Northern R. R. Co. were in this city with a proposition to extend their road from Tipton ville, Tenn., to Hickman. According to their idea, the new road would come direct from Tipton ville, crossing the Fulton comity line just east of No. 0 Like and and bearing a little to the north of a straight line to this city. This curve would enable them to follow the highest ground. In an address before our business men, Mr. Lotta submitted their proposition in a brief manner. They are anxious to come to Hickman on account of the railroad and river connection at this place. Mr. Hall, the chief stockholder of the Dyersburg Northern, Is not interested in extending the line, but has given the other members of the company a 30 days' option on his interests, and these gentlemen are pushing the Mr. Hall has accomenterprise. plished bis purpose in building the road to Tiptonville, which was to open up his land. The representatives tell us that it will cost 3300,000 to build the road from Tiptonville to Hickman, which of course includes road and equipment. The road alone is figured at 512,000 a mile. A New York concern proposes to furnish the capital, but want to discount the bonds 15 per cent, making it necessary for all parties interested to raise a total of 540,000 to meet this discount. Should this amount be raised, it will be held in trust by local banks until the road is completed and in operation. Memphis contractors say the road can be, and will be, if Duilt at all, completed in six months. They also propose to go on through Hickman, connecting with the M. & O, in the neighborhood of uayce ; however a line from Tipton ville to Hickman is all that will be considered for the present. bo in a nutshell, the company asks the people of Hickman and Fulton county territory, which will be benefitted, to give the right-of- way and a bonus of 520,000 to as sure the road.

Kidnapped Sheriff and Deputy, The "Liberty," a small packet and frieght boat which ran between Cairo and New Madrid, stopping at Hickman every day, and which discontinued the line a short time ago, is again in trouble. It will be remembered that they were arrested and fined for scilingllquoratthisport. Their latest stunt was kidnapping the officers of McCracken county, who attempted to arrest the captain. Capt. Davis was arrested when the boat landed at Smithland on the charge that liquor had been sold aboard the boat recently while it was landed there. He was fined $50 and asked the officers to accompany him to the boat so he could execute bond. When they reached the cabin the boat pulled out. The captain was handcuffed, and with pistol drawn Deputy Champion demanded the pilot to return to Smithland. He refused and was knocked down. The deputy took the wheel and in trying to guide the boat to the Kentucky shore, the tiller rope was either broken or cut. The boat was finally landed on the Dlinois side opposite Smithland where serious trouble was threatened between the crew and Kentucky officers who were then out of their jurisdiction. Both sides had pistols drawn. When the sheriff went in the engine room two shots were fired outside and he got out. Sheriff Bishop sent County School Charles Ferguson Superintendent is. Lynn of bmithland, who and had followed the bout in a skiff, to Paducah, to ask aid form Sheriff John W. Ogiivie. Being powerless to render aid, they were directed to appeal to the deputy United States marshal, but he was out of the city. They sent to Brookport, 111., five miles below, for aid. A posse ot twenty-fivmen responded. After being assured by the captain that there would no trouble, they boarded the boat and it left for Brookport. where Capt. Davis says be will wait further developments. He claimed that he was not responsible for the boat leaving Smithland. If Capt Davis refuses to return to Smithland without requisition, the opinion is that the governor of Illinois will not grant it, in case a request is made, because it is not a criminal case. There is also an opinion that the Kentucky officers laid themselves liable to the federal laws by interfering with the operation of the boat while she was in stream. Capt. Davis formerly lived in St. Louis, but now resides in Cairo, 111., and is well known in Hickman. 94.7 .92.2 97 8th .grade.

On the morning of the Idling, Den Ross went to the home of his brother Henry for the purpose of getting a shave. Several other men were present and finally the conversation turned upon the division of the corn. Henry began to abuse lien Rosa, who remonstrated with bin and finally started home. He had passed through the front gate when Henry Ross grabbed a double-barrele- d shotgun and fired both barrels into his brother killing him instantly. Henry Ross fled the country that night to Kentucky, and his family followed soon after. He has been in hiding since, living in secluded spots and sparsely settled communities. A few days since, a postal card was received by a young man near Auston Springs from the daughter of Koss. lhls bore the postmark of "Hailwell, Ky." Mrs. Polly Ann Ross, widow of Ben Ross, came to Dresden and retained :he services of Lake E. Uolladay, attorney. A. warrant charging Henry Ross with murder in first degree was sworn out, and Sheriff C. A. Brasfield left on the first train for Clinton, Ky., taking with him the jailer of this county They soon located Ross near the Mississippi river. His capture was effected, and he was landed in jail within less than ten hours after warrant was sworn out for him. to defend him. Ross was arraigned before Robert N. Irvine, justice of the peace, and, waiving examina tion was remanded to jail without bond to await the action of the grand jury. The case has attracted much attention throughout this county owing to the prominence of the parties. The Rosses are members of one of the oldest families in the county, while there wives, who are sisters, were daughters cf Col.

Railroad has a gang of surveyors here, mak Ing another or final survey for the purpose of selecting a route with a view to coming Into Hickman on the south side of town. It is probable that this will be done this year, and that the road will come from the east down what Is commonly known as "Sleepy Hollow," making a horseshoe around West Hickman connect with the old tracks about the Mengel grounds. This survey has been made many times irj the past ten years, but "where there is so much smoke there must be some fire," and It looks like the railroad must be moved from a financial point of view, if not safety, as the tracks along the river are becoming more costly to maintain etch year, on account of the en croaching waters. If the company makes this change Hickman should with them in constructing a levee around west illcitman. We may never have a chance to do so at such small cost again. Disturbed Public Worship. Three young men, Fonce Pascall, Virgil Tabor and Clyde Camp, were day, charged with disturbing public worship and fined $50 each. In default of payment, the Judge ordered that they wDrk out the fines on the streeets. Jas McNeil, also charged with the same offense, made his escape from officers John Wright and Rob Goalder, Saturday night, in a daring manner. After being placed under arrest, at his home in the country, he got on his horse, presumedly to accompany the officers to town, but instead he put spurs to the horse and ran by his cantors. Wright managed to grab the bridle reins and swung on to the horse un til he was dragged fully 100 yards when he was thrown in front of the animal and run over. Thus McNeil made bis escaps. The disturbance occurred at West Hickman Chapel last Friday night, at which place a revival is in progress. See the display of potted plants Ellison Bros. H. E.

While changing from one train to another afewdaysagobridewrenched her ankle very badly. She was afraid she would be lame for some time for the ankle pained her and was swelling rapidly. One of her fellow passengers brought her a bottle of Sloan's Liniment. The Lini ment stopped the pain at once and took down the swelling and next day her ankle was almost as strong as ever. Mr. L. Roland Bishop of Scranton. Pa., says: 'On the 7th of this present month, as I was leaving the building at noon for lunch, I slipped and feu, spraining my wrist. I returned in the afternoon, and at four o clock I could not hold a pen- cil in my hand. I returned home at five o'clock and purchased a bottle of Sloan's Liniment and used it five or six times before I went to bed and the next day I was able to go to to work and use my hand as usual. I thought sure I would be laid up, and as we are busy I was very much worried. I cheerfully recommend Sloan's Liniment to all persons who may injure themselves in any way."

Easter day, therefore, may be on any day within five weeks inclusive of March 23 and April 25. It cannot happen earlier nor later than these two dates. In 1833, Easter occurred on March 25, and again in 1894, which will be twice in the present century. In 1951 it will occur again on March 25. K.F.l),OmnltTllIe.

This is an old legend, and the lines from Sir John buckling are well lenorn : "But oh, she dances such a way no sun upon an taster day Is half so fair a sight."

The use of eggs for Easter can be traced to the theology and philosophy of Egyptians, remans, oauls. Creeks and Romans, among all of whom an egg was a symbol of the universe, the work of the Supreme Divinity. The Persians gave presents of eggs at the feast of the vernal equinox in honor of the renewal of all things. The Jews adopted it to meet the circumstances of their history as a type of their departure from kgypt, and it was used in the feast of passover as a part of the furnishing of the table with the Paschal lamb.
