He labors hard, even if he often reaps not, and as he passes through this vale of tears where true merit often goes unrewarded, he may gain comfort from the fact that there are no records to show that an editor ever went to the penitentiary or to hades, and though his reward may be small while on earth, there awaits for him a crown heteatter that fades not away and which is beyond the reach delinquent subscribers. good-naturebig-heart- ft Home of One of Hickman's Progressive Firms .n r a.y.

Two Wolfe county women are to a medal for saving the life of a country editor, which leads us to indulge in the fond hope that the day will yet come when that species of journalists will be treated almost as human beings. A Jordan correspondent "Mrs. S. A. Morrow, mother of Mrs. R. Y. McConnell, died at the home of her youngest daughter, Mrs. Mattle Webb, in Cedar Rapids, Neb., says last Friday night, after an illness of nearly two years of paralysis. Mrs. Morrow was the sister of Mr. J. M. Glenn. She was born and reared in this community, where she has a large circle of friends among both young and old, who will regret to hear of her death.

The Old and the New. When Benjamin Franklin first took the roach from Philadelphia to New York, he spent four days on the journey. He tells us that as the old driver jogged along, he spent his time knitting stockings. Two stagecoaches and eight horses sufficed for all the commerce that was carried on between Boston and New York, and in the winter the journey occupied a week. When the first two tons of anthra-clt- y coal were brought into Philadelphia, in 1803, the good people of that city, so the record states, "tried to burn the stuff; but, at length, disgusted, they broke it up and made a walk out of it." Fourteen years later, Colonel George Shoemaker sold eight or ten wagon loads of it in the same city, but warrants were soon issued for his arrest for taking money under false pretenses. A common nail is an excellent illustration of the difference between the old and the new. Formerly the metal was cut into strips and then forged into shape with hammers, and an expert tock about one and one-haminutes for each nail. Today they are made of steel and are lighter and stronger. Strips are cut with steam shears and fed into automatic nail machines. One man tends three machines, each machine dropping a nail every second. He turns out a hundred-pounkeg of nails in less than two hours, a work that would have formerly taken twice as many weeks. When, in 18S8, Mattew Vassar was considering the founding of Vassar College, he asked the advice of Wm. Chambers, the great philanthropist and publisher, of Edinburgh, who tried to dissuade him from his purpose. He urged him rather to apply the money to the founding of a school for the deaf and dumn, or for the feeble minded, assuring him that his design for the higher education of a woman was absurd and visionary to the last degree, and could but end in. failure. lf d The Young Man.

Don t treat dear old Brindle as you have the hog for she is the life, the soul the marrow and backbone of every family in town and no town can thrive without her presence on the strees.

The only evidence in all of the four trials of Powers and the three trials of Howard by which the prosecution in any way attempted to connect Governor Taylor with the murder wastestimony as to his writing to get Howard to come to Frankfort to kill William Goebel, tending to show that Howard, on request of that letter, did corse to Frankfort and entered into the plot and committed the murder. But Howard did cot kill Uoebel and Governor Taylor could not be guilty of getting Howard to do what he did not do. "From a fair and impartial study of the reports of all of the trials of these cases from my memory and knowledge of the history of the conditions at these times I believe Governor Taylor had no part in or guilty knowledge ol the murder ot William Goebel, and that be would never have been indicted but for the political excitement and passion then existing. Governor Taylor's experience has been one of the iad. dest in the history of the common wealth. In 1899, after a campaign notable for ability and fine public spirit, he was elected governor of Kentucky, ue was luinmag me duties of the office faithfully and uprightly when this tragedy storm of feelloe mined trie crowning glory ot a useful life, overthrew the elected state government and put in peril the safety of the people. "This indictment was returned in April, 1900, and has been continued from term to term ever since and was pending when I was inaugurated governor of Kentucky. While Governors Mount and Durbln, of Indiana, refused requisitions no application was made to their successor, Governor Hanley, during his four years, and the Democratic governor, Mr. Marshall, who has succeeded Governor Hanley. It setms from this delay of five and a half years that officers in prosecutions have not wished to perform a Taylor stated he would never re turn to Kentucky to make it his home. 'I have no Immediate plan to return even for a visit, he said, Finley, however, will soon return to Kentucky to visit his aged parents at Williamsburg, He said he had now no fear of personal hjury in return ing to bis former home. Governor Willson bases his par don of Former Secretary of State Charles Finley upon the idea that the only connection of Finley's name with the murder was bringing 1,500 armed men from the moun tains to Frankfort five days before the shooting. He holds that the visit of these men had no connection whatever with taking off of Goebel. In pardoning John Davis, Holland Whlttaker and Cach Steele the governor says they have been in Kentucky ready for trial but have not been called to trial by the com monwealth. In passing on John Powers' case the governor says "the only evidence affecting John Powers was substantially the same affecting Caleb Powers and because I do not believe that evidence and I do be lieve that John L. Powers not guilty, I pardon him." Catarrh cannot be Cured Smith & Amberg To Secure Right-of-way. See B. S. Elliott For right-of-wa- Nobody Spared. Young. by IXXJAI.

It seems that the old sutvey viz : down Broadway, and over which there was more or less contention on the part of those residing on that street has been abandoned for a more feasible route. The last survey makes a loop around West Hickman. It branches from the old tracks about 150 yards west of the east line of the Mengel Box Co's. grounds, bearing southwest, crossing the property of Sam Gouger, Ellison's Addition,. Geo. Helm and swings back to 'Sleepy Hollow." That this has been settled on as the final survey of the route, and that they will go around this year, there Is little doubt. At present the tracks above town are in a bad condition, so far as maintenance Is concerned, and all Indications point to Piling under their abandonment. one of the trestles having slipped toward the river is being replaced in a temporary manner, which with other things, are sufficient evidence of a change In the very near future. right-of-wa- Kidney Troubles Attack hick-ma- n Cabinet or Carpenter Work Men ami Women, OUI and Folding Beds cleaned and repaired ; Organs cleaned and repaired.

Mr. Dean, who is Captain of the B'rer Fox, said that the boat was then two hours and seventeen minutes ahead of her scheduled time, based on twenty-fivmiles per hour, and that judging by the way she showed up here, she will beat sixty hours into New Orleans, the time given her on a wager to make the trip. The runs they made to Hickman were as follows : Thursday, 132 2 miles to Louisville from Cincinnati in 4 hours, 56 minutes, and 57 seconds. Friday, 221 miles in eight hours, 2 minutes and 6 seconds. Saturday, 185 12 miles in 6 hours, 13 minutes, 48 seconds. The Saturday run was delayed by drift and some time was lost by a hot bearing. The boat left here about five o' clock Sunday morning, and her first stop was Caruthersville, Mo. They expected to reach Memphis, Sunday afternoon about three o'clock. They were taking this trip, exhibiting the Fox ergine, and were advertising their boat. She made, the trip from Cairo, Ills., to Hickman in 1 hour and 15 minutes, a distance of 40 miles.

Reelfoot Lake Bill. A special from Nashville yester t The hottest fights of the session occurred in the house of representatives Wednesday on the Reelfoot lake bills and the one on the fish and game law. By a vote ot 13 to o, the senate bill directing the attorney general to clear up the state's title to Reelfoot lake was passed, and the new fish and game law was passed, by a vote vote of 66 to 7. The bill author izing the condemnation of Reelfoot lake was also passed by practically the same vote as its companion bill, Speaker Taylor attacked Reelfoot bill bitterly, declaring that to pass it would, in effect, condone the acts and substantiate the contentiouns of the night rides; that it was confiscatory, and that the substance of the whole thing was to have the supreme court reverss itself. Mr. Puryear led the fight for the bill, and the arguments accompanying the consi deration of the bill were very able, even though they were a little warm.

"I'd llko to havo you," answered the soldier. "I think you havo tho clow to Archie's whereabouts and don't recognize It yourself; so put me wise, as the slang goes." Then, without preface, In brief, nervous sentences, spoken hardly with a quiver of a musclo or a wavering cadence of tho voice, yot nevertheless instinct with a deadly earnestness, Mercer began to talk. Ho told of his struggling youth on tho drained plantation, mortgaged so that after tho Interest was paid thero was barely enough to set tho mcagercst living for mother nnd sister nnd llttlo brother; of his accidental discovery of Iron ore tin tho plucd; of his working ns a common laboror In the steol mills; of "strand-boy,his being "rooster," "rougher," "heater," "roller," durjng three years whllo ho was waiting for his chanco; ot his toll; of his solitary studios. ''1 never was tho kind of fellow to make friends," ho said, in his soft, monotonous voice, "so I expect I wns the fonder of my own kin, I'd a jnlgbty good mother, sir, and sister; nnd there was Phil my llttlo brother. Wo. wore right happy all together on tho old jlcce that's been In our family for 100 yeirs, and It was all we, asked to stay there; but it had every dollar of inortgsb'o-l- t could' atond and the 'Poll " heart-drainin- ly good living. When I was 21 I was back homo. "nnd got a company started And put up n, mill. You know how those things have, to creep up. But thero was ore, all right, nnd I understood my business and taught the hands. We'd n right sweet llttlo mill. Well, I don't want to take up your time, sun. Thoio next 10 or 12 years wero right hard wqrk, but Ihey wero hapivy, too. We prospered; wo helped tho wholo county prosper. We paid Aunt Becky. We wero In good shapo. Wo went through '93 paying our divi dends Just as regular and making them, too, though wo didn't much more It was close sailing. But we were honest: wo made a mighty good article; nnd otcrybody trusted us. Then came tho erase for mercers, and a number of us got together, rlfllf wo weren't very big, but we wero big enough to bo listed. I didn't want It but somo ot tho men thought It wns a terrible flno thing to bo 'Iron Kings.' That was how. Keatcham was look ing over I ho country for fish for his net; ho somehow heard that hero was a heap of good oro and new mills. The first Intimation we had was his secretary coming as a northern Invnlld why, he stayed nt our houso becauso wo wor so sorry for him, tho hotol being In new hands and not r'ght com fortable. Ho seemed so Interested In our mills, nnd bought somo stock, nnd sent presents to Phil and my mother nftcr ho wnt." "That was Keatcham' private secre tary, you say?" "Yes, suh, Atkins. You met him on the train as sleek and deadly a tittle scoundrel as ever got rich quick. Oh, ho s deep. Well, suh, you know tho usual process. Convinced of the valuo ot the property, Keatcham and one or two others set out to buy It They got llttlo blocks ot It hero and there. Then Atkins wrote mo In confldenco thnt somo men were after tbo con trolling Interest and meant to squeeze us nil out offered to lend mn money to buy ot courio. on a margin. And I was plumb Idiot enough to bo tolled Into his Imp! I, who had nover speculated with n dollar before, I didn't borrow his money, but I took nil 1 could rnlso myself, and I bought enough to bo suro I could control tbe noxt election. Then tho slump came, and after tho slump tho long, slow crum bllng. I controlled tho election nil right, ot conrsa, but before tho next one cnm.o I was ruined, and Keatcham put his own men In. 1 went desperate ly to New ork. I didn't know how to tight those fellows; it was a now gnme. I didn't find Atkins. Maybe because that wasn't his name when I had known Mm. I was so uro that tbo property was good as If that mat tcred! As If anything mattered with theso gamblers who play with loaded (Ilea nnd dope tho horses they bet nga'lnst! Phil had nil his property In tho mills; wo all had. We mortgaged tho houso; wo had too, to protect our" stock. You know how tho fight ended, nnd what happened at Cambridge That isn't nil. My wlf- -" He stood a llttlo stralghtcr, and the light went out of his eyes. "I told you I don't mako friends easily, and I am not the kind of mnn women toko to; all tbe same, tho loveliest girl In tho south loved mo ever since I Jumped over tho mill-dato savo her rag doll, onco, when sho was visiting her aunt near us. Id married, when wo rcemed pros porous. Now, understand me, I don't say It whs my ruin nnd Phil's death that killed her and tho baby; sbo had pneumonia, nnd It may bo that seeing that paper by uccldent didn't turn tho rcalc; but I do say that sho had her last hours embittered by It. That's enough for mo. When I got homo, with with Phil, she wns dead." "Tough," said tho colonel.

How tenderly their health should be preserved, not by constant medication, but by careful avoidance of every medicine of an Injurious or objectionable nature, and if at any time a remedial agent Is required, to assist nature, only those of known excellence should be used; remedies which are pure, and wholesome and truly beneficial In effect, like the pleasant laxative remedy, Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna, manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co.

We Inform all reputable physicians as to the medicinal principles of Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna, obtained by an original methed, from certain plants known to them to act most beneficially, and presented In an agreeable syrup In which the wholesome blue figs are used to promote the pleasant taste; therefore It is not a secret remedy, and hence we are free to refer to all well informed physicians, who do' not approve of patent medicines and never favor Indiscriminate Please to remember and teach your children also that the genuine Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna always has the full name of the Company California Fig Syrup Co. plainly printed on the front of every package and that it Is for sale in bottles of one size only. If any dealer offers any other than the regular Fifty cent size, or having printed thereon the name of any other company, do not accept It.
