VOL. XVI. GATHER IN REUNION. Old Veterans March to Martial Music and Talk Over War Times. Good Program. Well, .sir, little old sleepy Jeffer son, the county site of Jackson county, at which we have been pok ing fun for 10, these many years, awoke on the glorious Fourth, stretched herself, yawned and be gan dispensing that old-time south ern hospitality she had known in her younger days. Welcome was written over every door in the grand old town and she slew the fatted calf and spread a glorious feast beneath the stately oaks surrounding Martin Institute in honor of the stranger within her gates. Jeffeerson had awoke! And a goodly crowd was there —the old soldier in his suit of gray, the young soldier with his steadier tread, the candidate with his happy smile, the sturdy farmer, the love-sick swain, the horse trader, the peanut man and the sodawater vender. Early in the morning ladies and gentlemen superbly costumed and mounted on dashing steeds could , be seen flitting about rounding up the paraders for the grand march. Soon the real soldiers, the heroes of the sixties, who learned to march to the music of shot and shell, in whose honor the affair was given J formed on Sycamore street, and at 11 o’clock Grand Marshal T. W. Webb gave the command to march and one of the largest parades in the history of Jackson county was put in motion. The line of march led to Martin Institute chapel,where, an excellent program was rendered. The music was in charge of Mrs. T. W. Webb, and was one of the most enjoyable features of the day’s entertainment. Judge J. A. B. Mahaffey was master of ceremonies and addresses were made by Judge H. W. Bell, Hon. J. N. Holder and J. N. Ross. “The Bonnie Blue Flag With a Single Star” was rendered by a chorus with telling effect, after which dinner was announced. And such a dinner! There was plenty for the 1,500 and more, and the candidates acted as waiters and saw to it that every fellow had a good time. The next time Jefferson has a hlow-out of the kind we’l! be there. KILLING AT MONROE. Saturday evening about 7:30 o’clock 0. M. Thompson shot and killed J. H. Bowen in Monroe. Both parties were men of fami lies and well connected, and the tragedy is greatly deplored by their many friends. The cause of the killing is still a mystery.

Mr. Lewis had sevred several terms on the hoard of council of the city of Monroe arid was an appre ciated member <f that body at the time of his death. He leaves an aged mother and father, two brothers and one sister, to all of whom the sympathies of friends are extended in these hours of unmeasured sorrow. The funeral was preached by Rev. G. M. Lakes.pastor of the Methodist church, and the interment was in the city cemetery. —Walton News.

When the local boys land the contests Friday and Saturday they will even matters. When Henry Pledger sends his regular team on the diamond they are hard to crowd, and here’s hop ing thfy will hand Jefferson a lemon similar to the one presented to the muchly touted Beck & Gregg team of Atlanta.
