Two complaints, one charging carrying a pistol and one aggravat- ed assault and battery, have been filed in the criminal court against former State Ranger James Dunna- way, growing out of an affair in Rouse's drug store late Monday after- noon, in which Attorney Oscar Ken- ley of Grovoron was hit over the head several times with a pistol. Dunnaway left the city at 11 o'clock that night on business, and on his return to the city the latter part of the week warrants will be served. The affair occurred when the store a...

'mm FAMOUS BOY ARTISTS. Millais Painted Some Great Pictures Before He Wae of Age. One of the best known pictures in existence is Sir David Wilkie's "Blind Fiddler." It is a master- piece in its own school of painting, and at one time perhaps no other picture could compete with it for popularity as an engraving for the sitting room wall. Vet this master- ly picture, so full of detail and char- acter and subtle touches of humor, was painted when Wilkie was only twenty-two. So poor was he at the time that he had to dress himself up to act as his own model for this great compo- sition—hence, doubtless, the simi- larity of feature observable in near- ly all the characters, the very mas- culine lineaments of the fiddler's wife and the young-old look of the boy who is imitating the fiddler on the kitchen bellows. But an even more amazing pic- ture may be seen on the staircase leading up to the picture gallery at South Kensington. This is a pic- ture entitled "Pizarro Seizing the Inca of Pe...

o f M lü i Wm m Impressive Exhibits Of Holiday Stocks Displays, Abounding in a Wealth of Luxurious, Appropriate, Useful and Most Acceptable Gifts .'At Christmas time hearts come out of hiding. That is the source of 'Christmas cheer. We see our hearts and discover that the trials and cares of the work-a-day world have not dulled their love and sympa- thy for others—and we are glad. We see the hearts of others and dis- cover that they beat warmly toward us—and our cup of joy overruns. The joy of giving and receiving is so great that it intoxicates. The generous desire to give runs away with us. Every one that can give gives. The pity is that most of us have hearts with greater giving ca- pacity than our purses, and, that our Christmas cheers may be unal- loyed, it is well meant that we study not to overtax our means. Don't let the fullness of your heart be the emptiness of your purse. Give every one something—remembering that a small gift speaks of remem- brance as plainly as a precio...

Shivers & Company Says when the setting sun hides itself behind the horizon on the last day of this month it will mark the close of forty years of success- ful business in Houston county done by the house of Shivers. On January 1, 1873, J. S. Shivers, with small capital but unlimited will, launched his boat upon the commercial sea to be tossed by the waves of adversity, competition, legitimate and illegitimate, but never during the years past has there been a failure to carry out and fulfill every contract or promise made. From a small beginning this institution has grown to a great power in the county, and it has been under the same management for the past twenty years. The most important events in people's lives are their birthdays. It is not so much how long one has lived, but how one has done in that life. This month will end the fortieth year of this business, and we point with pride to our commercial achievements during these many years. A ...

0 THE MAGNETIC FIELD. ft I* On* df th« Moit Valuable Pouu- atona of Man. Take a bar of hard steel, mag- netize it, and the adjacent space will be in a very peculiar state, and this space is called a magnetic held of force; for short, magnetic field. And the energy is supposed to exist in lines, or flow in lines from the north pole of the magnet backward through the neutral line, the equa- tor, to the south pole and thus com- plete the circuit. The flow of en- ergy is supposed to be very rapid. To magnetize the bar it must be touched by another magnet, or by lodestone, the magnet made by na- re. 'We imagine that gold and dia- monds are valuable, but a magnetic field is at present the most valuable possession of man. Thus three great standard fundamentals, heat, üght and power, can be, and are, in- cessantly taken out of it. And sev- eral billion dollars are now invested in one little apparently trivial act, namely, that of moving masses of metal in this most wonderful field, lío movi...
