Forrest's two raids in Western Kentucky, taken from : the Faducah After rapid and forced marches from Columbus, Miss., night andday, no one knowing our destination, Gen, Forrest,' with Buford's brigade of Kentuckians and Gen. Bell with the Tennessee cavalry, struck the Fed eral pickets around Faducah about 2 p. m. on March 25, 1863. To say that the Yanks were surprised Is putting It very mildly. They had no Idea that the "Wizard" was with in a hundred miles. Forrest had sent one battalion to Union City to cover the movement on Faducah and that The Fed place had surrendered. erals were completely, astonished. There was wild skurryingtothefort. Forrest ordered Buford to take Thompson's brigade, the Third, Seventh and Eight Kentucky, and move against the fort, and hold the enemy within until he, with Bell's brigade, could move Into town and get out horses and supplies of which he was greatly in need. Buford, with Thompson moved at once against the fort, which was manned with heavy siege guns, and Immediately on the river and under the protection of about six gunboats. The fort was also surrounded by a ditch about 12 feet wide and 10 feet deep. The Kentucky regiments had to move across an open common for a long distance under a galling fire. They could not go slow. Some ol them got really into the ditch. The balance took cover in the surrounding houses and kept up such a sharp firing as to keep the Federals under cover, They dared not show a head above the parapet. In the charge toward killed the fort Gen. Thompson by a shot, and Col. Ed. Crossland, Capt. Al Goodwin were severely wounded as, well as several officers in the Seventh and Eighth, and some eight or ten of them left at the hos. pital. Ed Mom, a brave Paducah boy, was killed in sight of his own home, as was Gen. Thompson. The charge on the fort in line was not intended by Gen. Forrest or Gen Buford, for even had the Confeder ates gotten into the tort they could not have stayed there as the river was full of gunboats and we had no News-Democr- brt. w hokt htrl, pukrr hunting your one Some Dog Lays. to ro pond Illy mcr.

The ote will probably be tho closest that will occur in the making of the tariff bill. The Democratic strength is 3X rotes, the 11 of which are pledged to support amendment. Mr. Bailey is counting upon 'from 1C to 17 llepublican Votes to aecurc the adoption of the amendment. Fifteen will be sufficient if the Democrats veto solidly for the amendment. On the other hand, the "conservative Republicans' in charge of the tariff bill say they have made some inroads upon the "progressive Republican" camp, and that upon tho question of referring the whole subject of an income tax to the judiciary committee for a report at the next regular session, they already have 45 votes pledged.

At least 700 delegates were in Attendance when C. D. Jordan, chairman of the local committee of arrangements, rapped for order at 10:45 o clock. The delegates were given a right royal welcome to the grand eld Vountcer State, Tennessee, by Gov. M. R. Patter son, and to Memphis, the BluU Uty, by Mayor James H. Maione.

Tho caso for tho Mecklonburgers Is set forth as follows: In 1818 there aroso a groat rivalry between Massachusetts and Virginia as to which commonwealth should rccclvo tho credit for the Philadelphia document, and the controversy was brought up ln congreas, It was nt this time that Davidson, n representative In con gress from North Carolina, announced that Mecklenburg county had declared her Independence 13 months before tho promulgation of the document ln Philadelphia. While the statement created some surprise It resultod In an Investiga tion Into the facts as to the Mecklen burg declaration. This Inquiry was tnado by Nathaniel Macon, who North Carolina ln tho senate, and through Oen.

"Official news, by express, arrived of the battlo of Lexington," ac cording Jo Dr, Alexander's report to Senator Macon, and tho Influence of the news from Lexington, he added, resulted ln tho unanimous adoption of the Mecklenburg declaration of independence. 'Tho declaration, as written by Dr. Brevard, and approved by the convention on May 20, 1775, reads: di"1.

Williams, Bailey Mack Roach, and Huddleston against the Leader Publishing Co., also of Fulton. Plaintiffs petition alleged on the 21st of May, Guy Freeman, editor and manager of the Leader, caused the following article to be printed and circulated by the Daily News, on the occasion of its last issue : "This is the last issue of the Daily News. This paper ceases publication and asks its friends to give their support moral and financial to the Leader. 'After nine months of successful work in the live city of Fulton, with this issue of our paper, The Daily News ceases publication. The reason for this actions are brief. We feel that our work, which has been to further the cause of Fulton, to boost the interests of Fulton both morally and physically, and to uphold the law in its majesty, will be carried on more successfully and to better advantage by the Fulton Daily Leader, our admirable contemporary, which has lately passed under the management of Mr. Guy Freeman, a young man of moral courage and stamnia, who is not associated with dirty politics or a se cret ally of the liquor force. "The News has endeavored at all times in its history to give to the people of Fulton a live daily, full of local news, and composed of the most interesting and readable mat' ter which the City of Fulton afford ed. Its prime policy, however, from the time of its origin, when Mrs. J. N. Hall issued the first number of the paper, with Mrs. Addie Nolen as editor, has been to cham pion the cause of temperance, and the present editor and publisher, Mr. C. R. Herman has striven to carry out the ideas of the estimable lady who founded the News and has ever been allied with the Law and Order people of this place to further their worthy cause. "When the paper was founded, Mott Ayers, politician and what not associated with R. S. Williams, his ever ready tool and handy man of all work, were at the head of the Daily Leader, and under their administration the paper, we believed, was against temperance, in that its two heads were living examples of and it would have been second nature to espouse the liquor cause. They ruled with an iron hand, and neither courtesy nor consideration were given those who did not regard matters in general from their standpoint. "But matters are entirely different now. Mr. Freeman is a young man ol the straight water type. Although young in age he has a level head and a stiff backbone and has announced his policies tobe the betterment of Fulton and the upholding of the law. Since the change in the Leader, when he took the helm of the sheet, its general tone is different, it is better, and has evidenced from its first week of splendid issues that it is here to stay, and to make a great g success. We can read the on the wall, and know that the Daily Leader is bound to increase its business, its circulation, and its host of friends under this young man's direction, and we believe it to be the best for all concerned to cease publication and ask our scores of warm personal friends to give their whole support to the Leader and its capable editor. The bw paper founded in Fulton by Molt Ayers, R. S. Williams and Bally Huddleston, to say nothing ol Mack Roach, who Is merely a , band-writin- figurehead behind which lurks the portly figure of the Colonel, cannot make a success because it is started through political reasons, and its character of personal journalism will never gain for it ought but bitter enemies. The management of this paper attempted to purchase our Daily News, but we refused point-blanbecause we knew of Ayers connection with the new sheet to be issued and could not afford to have our policies violated. We prefer to simply turn to the Leader our whole support, and ask others to do the same. "Our subscribers will do well to let the Daily Leader come in the place of this paper, since we are no more to exist, and our jobbing custom ers we also ask together with our advertisers, to place their orders with the Leader. They will be well taken care of an d will be treated with every courtesy and prompt at tention. "Our mission is ended and to the Leader we trust our policies with a firm conviction that they will be car ried out well. To our good friends we extend our heart felt thanks With the present editor, Mrs. Hall and Mrs. Nolen, join us in our thanks and in asking you to place in the Leader the confidence which you placed in us.

Last week a woman worked this city peddling toilet articles, a thing sold by all drug stores in the city. This week we have a fisted fellow "advertising" furniture pollseh at 50c a bottle. Every furniture store in Hickman sells as good article If not better at 25c a bottle. Just to show that he was strictly In earnest about advertising his goods, the polish agent limited his sales to only two bottles to each family thus disappointing several n ladies who might have taken a bottles of this exquisite and probable river water compound. Again we say that these ducks ought to be made dig up or dig out. Certain it is that there is no class of men in business so generally helpful to a communulty and so universally abused as the country merchant. It is no wonder that at times we find him fighting back. His business life is one of con tinuous fight for his rights from the time he opens his doors in the morn ing until he closes them at night. It is little wonder that we find him "grouchy" and cross at times, He has to fight with the salesman to get his goods at a price which 111 enable him to sell them so as He must to satisfy his customers. be ever on the alert andwatchevery-thin- g that comes into his store to s articles are see that only on his shelves. put He is continually harassed by per sons who want credit, whose respon sibility is not the best and with whom it would be, oftentimes, a loss to deal. There are numerous calls on him for charity and the support of charitable institutions. If there is to be a new enterprise of any kind started, a new railroad or franchise of any nature cr a new manufacturing enterprise, the mer chant is always expected to assist by subcribing for stock which many times proves worthless. No matter what cause or condition may arise looking to the betterment of the condition of Hickman, the merchant is the one on whom the responsibility of assisting with capital and time falls. Your private citizen, your land owner, scarcely takes an Interest in ' these things. He profits by it, however, as does every other resi dent or farmer near the town, whose property Is enhanced in value there by. Since so much Is expected of the merchant, since he employs so many people in the conduct of his business, since he is such an important factor in the upbuilding of a community, why should he not receive the pat ronage and support of every resi dent of a community? Why should the money of a community be sent out of that community to support people in a large city? We know well the argument that the Mall Order House or peddler patron puts up in answer to this question "because we can buy cheaper from the Mail Order House."

Milk Is an excellent medium for the growth of lactic acid bacteria, and under favorable tcmporaturo coudltlons tbey multiply with astonishing rapidity. The acidity of the milk Is so close ly connectod with the Ufa procoisei of this group of bacteria that It may be token as a rough measure of their, development. The acid, as fast as it Is formed, unites chomlcally with the cuoln, which exists as very One par ticles suspended In tho milk serum.

The Tuxestone, because of Its Runic character, has been placed on exhibition In the rooms of the Chicago Historical society. The stone was found In Douglas county, Minn. Copies of the inscription and photographs have been sent to the University at Christianna, where no valid criticism of its authenticity was offered. The inscription, as trans lated, reads as follows : Eight Goths and 22 Norwegians upon a voyage of discovery from Vinland westward. ''We had a camp two skerries. one day's journey north, from this stonr , We were out fishing one day. When we returned, we found ten men red with blood and dead. Ave Marie, save us from evil. "We have ten men by the sea to look after our vessel, 41 days journey from this island. Year 1632." Runic characters, In which the In scription was written, are believed to have originated with the Phoenicians, and are known to have been used by the early Norsemen. The language as explained by the translator, Is that of early times In Southern Sweden, and is not greatly dif ferent from the Norwegian language in the present time. The stone is in an excellent state of preservation, and most of the charact:rs are perfect. ar Let Us Furnish Your Home!!

ONEYEAR every true home is the abode of joy, peace, happiness and security to those that share In it, and exerts an Influence that is Incalculable for the amelioration of the whole human family. Many a prodigal has been led by the thought of home, and the makers of his own particular home, to repent of his sins and to change his course in life i and many an tin fottunate one has been saved in the evil hour from suicide, or worse, by the tender recollections of home, a fond mother's prayers, an indulgent father's counsels, or a sister's or brother's tenderness. Yes, whoever helps to make a true home confers a benefit on mankind that no man can fully estimate. In jdeed, the influence of the true home for good Is absolutely Incalculable, and leaches many even that never enter its inner circle. Simply to get a glimps of it is to receive an im pulse toward better things, to obtain a more exalted view of life, and to feel an access of faith in God and the immortality of the human soul, It is like a vision of the glories of the habitations, and no ot.lt can be wholly bad who has seen such things.
