On last Wednesday night Marshal J. W. Morrison of Huttig, Ark., was shot and killed by a negro woman by the name of Diana Howard. The day before the woman had shot and killed a negro man at Huttig and marshal Morrison, learning that the woman was in hiding at Dollar Junction, a small station a few miles from Huttig, went there in company with several other men to arrest her. When they found her the officer approached and caught her by the arm when she immediately drew a pistol and shot him dead. The news of the killing created considerably excitement and had it not been that prompt action was taken and the prisoner hurried off to El Dorado and lodged in jail there would probably have been a session of Judge Lynch’s court.

The best way to guard against schemes of grafters and keep up-to date in general is to be a regular reader of this paper. It is always the one who does not read his home paper who gets caught by the grafters and fakirs.

This important, impressive, entertaining, and instructive annual event will be given the public in the Methodist Church at Farmerville, on Sunday night July 8th., 1906. The entire public is given a cordial invitation to be present and enjoy the treat of an exceedingly fine program. The parents and guardians of those children who are to act their part of the program are urged to see and insist upon their children attending the meeting of the committee for their training and rehearsal of the program. Strict attention to this will avoid all embarrassment at the critical time, and will insure the large success of the Children’s Day Service. –John G. Sloane, Pastor in charge M. E. Ch. S.
