|Friday May 20, 1904
Last Friday Ben PARKER and Ed BOWLIN complained to Marshal TAYLOR
that they had been robbed
of $10 in money and two rings
valued at $10, one belonging
to each, and accused a young
man named Campbell WATSON,
who had been with them, of the
theft. They charged that
WATSON went into PARKERís place
to get a drink of whiskey,
which he had stored away there,
and it was then that
he got the money and rings out of a
drawer. Marshal TAYLOR
set about with a determination to
capture him, telephoning
to Martin, Fulton and Paducah.
The Police Chief at Paducah
telephoned here Friday that
he had WATSON under arrest.
Mr. TAYLOR left immediately
for Paducah. The prisoner
agreed to come back with him,
they arrived here Sunday
and he was landed in jail.

A Noble Woman
The oldest woman now living in Weakley county who furnished her
sons to the ìLost Causeî is Mrs. Axy BUNTIN, of near Gleason. Her
husband, John BUNTIN, has been dead several years. Her oldest
son, Ben BUNTIN, was captured at Missionary Ridge and died in
prison at Rock Island and the other son was promoted as
Lieutenant of Calvary and was killed at Jackís Creek, in
Henderson County. His name was Wes BUNTIN.
She being perhaps the oldest woman in Tennessee, over ninety
years old, that thus aided the Confederacy with her most
precious jewels. I think the legislature should bestow on her a
ìCross of Honor.î The writer was with these two noble soldiers
and can testify as to their bravery and loyal support of what
they thought to be right.

Suicide Near Sharon
Herbert C. BAKER, son in law of Andy MALOAN, took a large
quantity of laudanum Tuesday morning with suicidal intent, dying
that evening at 7 oíclock.
Mr. BAKER, who resided on the Brock farm, west of Sharon, left
the house early Tuesday morning to feed his stock. While there
he emptied the contents of a vial of laudanum into his stomach.
He was found sometime later in an unconcious state and physicians
were immediately summoned. Work was begun to save the young manís
life, but to no avail. At one time he rallied sufficiently to
call for more of the deadly poison. We understand the physicians
walked him the entire day and did everything known to medical
science to restore him.
Mr. BAKER left a note to his wife saying that he was in debt;
could see no way clear; that every time he went out, some
creditor would demand pay, etc.; he also advised her to rear
the children (three) and pay off his debts and to do the best

honest, upright, hardworking boy, and no thought was ever

not have been deeply involved, as he possessed neither land nor
stock and had been share cropping for parties in the Sharon
community. His wife is one of the best women we ever knew and
has the sympathy of a host of friends.
The body was laid to rest Wednesday at the Freeman graveyard,

one now living; he was quite

to see him return some

gladdened at the proposed
meeting. But alas, the creul
sapped his young life away. Truly,
in the midst of life
we are in death. Will TUGWELL was
just in the prime of
young manhood when the destroying
disease gathered him
home to his maker. No man ever
stood higher in the esteem
or estimation of many people
than he; a devout christian,
a true friend, a perfect
gentleman with whom he
came in contact, Too much could
not be said in praise
of this noble young man, whom to
know was to admire, he
made friends of those with whom
he made contact. Surely,
the world is better because he inhabited it
and, surely heaven is made brighter because
he is there.
A report was current here Thursday to the effect that Henry
COLLIER was cut in several
places about the head and neck
with a butcher knife
in Fulton Tuesday, by a man named
THOMAS. We understand
COLLIER went to THOMAS to pay taxes
and a difficulty arose.
Mr. ROBUS, who lives near Mr.
COLLINS, tells us he
was informed that it required
twenty four stiches to
sew up the cuts.
The little two year old baby of Constable Walter McWHERTER, of
No. 5, had a rather narrow
escape from drowning last
Friday morning. The child
got out of the yeard and made
for the mill pond, near
by; it was missed and the mother
and little boy started
in search. The latter made for the
pond and found the child
floating on the water face
downward. He screamed
for his mother, who came
immediately, and, dashing
through the pond, which is
six foot deep in places,
rescued her babe from the water.
Mrs. McWHERTER, our informant
tells us, herself sank once
in her endeavor to rescue
her child. It was certainly a
marvelous escape for
both, and Mrs. McWHERTER displayed wonderful
nerve and presence of mind.
