UnBK "I give ye now me word, Are alt rlfht If prevented Defore they have ocBo, In Irlahman, trouble," laid the South Pulton Incorporated, The Legislature now in session at Nashville, Tenn., passed the bill introduced by Floater Roy McDade, ol Obion county in the lower house to reincorporate South Fulton, Tenn,, without any fight and when Gov. M. R. Patterson affixes his signature to the bill it becomes a law and the new mayor and city council, as well as the other municipal officers will take their seats in office. The officers of South Fulton, as named in the bill for reincorporation, areas follows: Adrian McDade, mayor; W. P. Albritton, marshal; Jas. Lowe, treasurer; W. W. Morris, J. P. Swann, Will Har-wel- l, W. D. Swiggart, Dr. R. N. Whitehead and W. S. Boulton, councilmen. The night police officer was not named in the bill. These officers will serve until the regular election, which will be held in December. Fulton Leader Although the Roman Church denies it, some early historians have asserted that at one time in the ninth century the Papal chair was the "Popess filled by a woman Joan." This personage is mentioned by Marianus Scotus, a monk of Fulda, who lived about 1040-108and who, in his chronicle, says that when Leo IV". died, in 853, he was succeeded by Joan, whose pontificate lasted two years, five months and four days, she in turn being succeeded by Benedic 111. Anastasius and Hincmar, both contemporary with Leo IV., in writing of the succession, make no mention of any occupant of the Papal chair between Leo and Benedict. 0, curred." the home economy, things go wrong, the reason la tmually the result Of lack of care In Wlien 1 81 hangs wrone-elde-u- the harness "Ai the small rain upon the tender herb, and aa the showers upon the grata."

STEEL TRUST WAS BLUFFING Earnings First Quarter $5,000,000 TERRIFIC Over Last Year. New York. The United States Steel Corporation, better known as the steel trust, showed in its quarterly report, Issued Tueday, that its net earnings for the first tlir.ee months .of this year had been almost $5,000,000 greater than they were in the corresponding quarter of last year. The total, $22,921,560, was niore than $2,000,000 in excess of general expecta tions. In the opinion of Walt street, it proved dearly that the recent lamen tations and wage cutting threats of the trusts managers were for political effect, with the intention of Intimidating the tariff cutter in Washington rather than showing the true condition of trade.

Alex Campbell, caught by the spirit of and truth and freedom couched In the Declaration and address of his father, Thomas Campbell, gave to the world a true render Ing of the New Testament on the subject of baptism and primitive Christianity. I.uth er gave the Bible to the protestant world a world clouded with the biased teachings of the Oathollo church. The former removed the ban and blazed the way for those who should follow, and settle up the wilderness of tradition, superstition and doubt, by teaching the people the gospel as taught by the apostles. Vis:- - Hearing the Word of God: believing It; coufesslng Christ and emerging Into a new state of being by bap tism into The Spiritual Kingdom. Alexander Uompbell, Walter Soott and Barton V. Stone, a trinity of plnoneers who. In the Dark Ages would havo suffered martyrdom for the teachings they conscientiously promulgated and practiced; as It was they were ontracUed In tbo several chnrcbeato which they belonged for the broad and liberal positions they took In the rendering of the Scriptures. Alexander Campbell was a famous orator, an able debater, a forceful writer and editor, and a careful executive and organlxer. Ills reading of the New Testament concerning baptism led him to leave the Presbyterians and became a Baptist In 1813, and he remained a Baptist In good fellowship for many yeara. Iu 1K the Baptists generally withdrew from him for preaching a sermon that has since been known as the famous "Sermon on the Law," In which was set forth the between the Old Testament and the New that led some of the Baptists to disagree with him. He founded the first Institution for training of preachers, Bethany College, and be. came tbo first President of a missionary society, the American Missionary Hoclety, for the spread of the gospel. The great thought of Waltor Scott was the Mlsslabshlp of Jesus, and Ills ambition to preach "the ancient gospel," which term he himself coined. In IS!7 he was called by Thomas and Alexander Campbell, to the first evangelist of the restoration movement. HI early work was done In eastern Ohio, but bis later ministries were near Olncln. natl and In Kentucky, H Is safe to say that rapid spread of the movement In Its early yeara is due very largely to the evangelistic later of Walter Scott. Barton W, Stone wasa native born Amerl-ea- a and bU work really antedates that of the OarapbolU.

Bourbon Co., and the Concord church, Nicholas county, both In Kentucky. withIn lw) he and four drew from their presbytery because they no longer live In accord with Its could teachings, and In a few months declared theraseltes Independent of all church creeds ane parties. Stone prepared a document veary similar In purpose to the "Declaration and Address" six years before Thomas Campbell wrote. He and the Canerldge church were really the first people In modern days who wore) the name of Christian. This paper would become too lengthy to review at length the labors of the men whose faith, and consequent labors made the Christian Church possible. The brief glance at their stalwart christian fortitude should make all who bear the name of christian more deout. more enthusiastic and more energetic "In the faith which was once delivered unto the saints;" Jade, 3. Many others deserve special mention, men who devoted their lives to the true principles of Christianity, amotlg whom we may mention Samuel and John Itogers, John Smith and John T. Johnson, to tb latter must be given the credit mora than any one else for the union of the followers of Campbell and Stone. He was born In Scott county, Kentucky, In lTtt). and educated at Transylvania University. He became lawyer and attained great wealth and prom' lnence, representing bis State In Con Kress four years. Ills separation from the Baptists led him to air Intimacy with Bar ton Stone. He was greatly Interested In educational work and was one of the found' ers of Bacon College In ltM, from which Kentucky University was an outgrowth, Such In brief was the Inception of the Christian Church In Kentucky, and theie men whoso Uvea we have briefly sketched were the nuclei around which honest hearts gathered to form the church that striving to restore tbo primitive Apostolic doctrine. Canerldge Is the mother church In Ken tucky, and Barton Stone, according to Tb Weekly Bulletin, was the first preacher to advocate the authority of the Bible. He and hi brethren were forsaken, mlsunder stood and persecuted In that early day, but later lie won many able preachers to the ranks and developed others who were everywhere preaching the word. Among these must be mentioned David Iurvlance. Thomas M. Allen and John Allen Guno, Alexander Campbell made his first visit to Kentucky In 13, coming to Washington Manoii county, to engage in debate with a Mr. McOalla on Baptism. Ho bad been preceded by Thomas Campbell In a short sojourn at Burlington. Boone county, which was without results religiously. Campbell came to KeuWky again In a few months, and through his personal visits and the circulation of his papers, "The Christ Man Baptist" and later 'The Millennial of Harbinger," his views became widespread throughout the Stale. The first preacher to adopt these views was Philips. Knll.of Louisville, and later of Frankfort, who won thousands to the cause, particularly from among the Bap tlst.

The Campbell followers had little fellow ship with the Stone followers, though often living side by side This was largely dae to the fact that Campbell was re coned with the Baptists, who looked with great contempt upon Stone and his heretical labor.

The body naa noaiea out ana toagea on a sana bar, where a fisherman discovered it. W. A. Hinshaw, accompanied by relatives of the deceased, went in his gasoline boat Tuesday night to the place where the body was held and brought it home for burial. Young Smlthwick, as told in the Courier two weeeks ago, lest bis life in an attempt to save a skiff which had broken loose from the bank and was drifting away. Uufortunately he followed the skiff in a little "Joe-boat- " which capsized with him just before reaching the object of his pursuit. Friends on the bank saw the boat sink with him, but could not go to his assistance because they had no boat. He drifted with the current a distance of 8 miles, holding to the boat, which was then floating, and is susposed to have chilled to such an extent that he was exhausted and lost his hold on it. At the last moment a skiff was found by those following on the bank, and Smith-wic- k went down while his friends were untieing it. The body was badly decomposed when found and required much effort to place it in a coffin. Juggling The Alphabet. Many attempts have been made by ingenious writers to put the whole alphabet in a single sentence without duplication of letters. Prof. De Morgan, the famous mathematician, tried to juggle the alphabet into one sentence, each letter being used but once. After many fruitless attempts he decided to compromises exactness by using i for j and further by regarding u and y as the same letter. Then his final accomplishment read as follows : "I, quartz pyx, who fling muck that ne may ncai mm. ItistiTe honon from btiia older He amy k- - y koa ft raw.

The professor published his sen tence and called upon others to out do him if they could.

We understand every prop erty owner has granted this option, which means that there will be no fight in court for this purpose, and the road can get busy on building the new road around the town. There is little doubt that this work will eo forward in a short time, owing to the condition of the tracks above town making it necessary to do something at once. When this is done, it will give West Hickman a levee, and property in that part of town will likely jump up in the "pictures" in valua tion. back." "Dumpy quiz, whirl back fogs next."

Even when the duplication of let ters is permitted, the crowding of the entire alphabet into a single coherent sentence is not an easy task, and such examples as "John T. Brady gave me a black walnut box of quite small size," are neither numerous nor important. There is one verse in the Bible which contains all the letters of the alphabet except j : this is the 21 verse of the seventh chapter of Ezra, and, as the verse contains some forty words the collocation is only note-worbecause it occurred without previous design. None of the examples here given is perhaps as good as that recently quoted in the New York Sun : "Pack my box with five dozen liquor lugs.' This contains the entire alphabet, is a perfectly coherent sentence and nas oniy J letters in comparison with 47 letters In the "John T. Brady" example. So It would seem to hold the palm. th o-- Fulton Leader Sold.
