Cox Killed by Auto.
Mr. J. L. Cox was struck by an
auto Saturday evening about six
o'clock and died about three
hours later from the effects of
Mr. Cox had been in town and
rode out to his home cn Crockett
street with Hugh Peace in his
wagon. When he went to alight
from the wagon there was anoth-
er wagon following and also a
car driven by Grady Ross. Not
seeing the car approach Mr. CoX
stepped from the wagon and
started to cross the street to his
home. Mr. Ross had his view
obstructed by the other wagon
and he did not see Mr. Cox. As
a result the car hit Mr. Cox with
much force and he was so badly
injured that he died in a few
hours as above stated.
Mr. J. L. Cox was born in Ala-
bama Sept. 1, 1842, and was
therefore in his eightieth year.
He was a suldier in the war and
served his state in the Confed-
eracy, being in the 38th. Alabama
Inf. After the war, in 1865, he
took as his wife Miss Emma Wil-
son and they have lived a long,
useful and happy life together.
They had one son, C. E. Cox,
who with his family resides in
Corpus Christi. The son was noti-
fied of the accident and came at
once to Rusk, arriving Sunday
Funeral was held Monday
morning at 9.30, Rev. A. A.Wag-
non of the M. E. church preach-

Democratic Committee Met Monday.
The Democratic executive com
mittee for Cherokee county met
in Rusk Monday, June 19th, for
the purpose of transacting the
business incident to the placing
of the names of candidates for
nomination upon the ticket; for
drawing for position on the tick
et; for the appointment of elec-
tion officers for the primary elec-
tion to be be held July 22d.
: Floral tributes were very prufuse
: and beautiful.
Mr. Cox and his family came
! to Rusk about twenty years ago
] and have resided here ever since,
j He has been a good citizen and a
true Christian gentleman and
nothing but the kindliest remarks
have been made regarding his life
and actions. He and his wife
have been members of the Meth-
odist church for many years and
also members of the Sunday
school. Notwithstanding the fact
I that he served in the war and
had attained a very ripe advanc-
j ed age Mr. Cox was possessed of
j his full powers and was as active
as is usual with a man in his six-
ties and seemed good for many
more years of activities. Recent-
ly he and Mr. T. H. Singletary
discovered that they had been in
numerous battles of the war to-
gether, tho having been in differ-
ent commands and not having
met, and they had some veryj
nice visits together recounting
their experiences of those days.
Mrs. Cox is now left alone so
far as immediate family goes but
she will for the present remain in
Rusk as she has many relatives

Special Series of Sermons at the
Rev. A. A. Wagnon is deliver-
ing a series of sermons at the
Methodist church on "The Mes-
sages of Christ to the Church-
es", as set forth in the first three
chapters of the book of Revela-
Last Sunday he gave the intro-
ductory sermon on "The Benefit
of Being in the Spirit on the
Lord's Day", in which he laid
great stress on the NEED of the
churches of today giving careful
heed to what Christ has to say
At the evening service Christ's
message to the church at Ephe-
sus was considered Key-word:
"Christ's Warning against the
Deadly Sin of Omission.''
Next Sunday Christ's messages
to Smyrna and Pergamos will be
given at the morning and even
ing services. Key-word to Smyr-
na: "The Sufferings, Faithful-
ness, and Final Reward of the
Saints." Pergamos: "The Sin
of Balaam in the Life of the
Church of Today.''
This series of sermons is given
with the hope that our people
may come near to Christ and
learn of Hiin as the world's great-
est Teacher. Certainly no one
should miss any of these sermons
who is interested in the things
which Christ Himself had to say
to the churches. Everybody is
cordially invited, and all Meth-
odists are entreated to hear ev
ery one of them. Announcement
of the others in the series will be
made from time to time.

just as speedily as is possible. It ManufacUirers Now Using Apples
will be of interest to contestants _ TI , , c ,
1 o I he Last seed.
The thoroughness with which
the apple is now worked over and
utilized by some manufacturers
makes it comparable with the
packing-house pig that leaves
only a futile squeal. The apple
is not transformed into such a
variety of products as the pig,
but all are useful, and when the
last of the series has been made
hardly a smell is left.
In man: of the apple using
factories the apples are first press-
ed to produce cider, which may
be sold as such or may be manu
factured into vinegar. After
thorough pressing the pomance
is treated with hot water to re-
move the pectin, which, after
purification, is sold in either liquid
or solid form to manufacturers of
jellies and similar products and
to house-wives. The much-wast-
ed and squeezed residue is dried,
ground, and sold as cattle feed.
