him was impressed itfore than ever
with its great importance. He spoke

In the death of Mr. John T. Barnes,
announced in the last issue of this
paper, Wilson county loses one of
its oldest, most prominent, anel loyal
citizens, and his friends one whose
life and character excited the kindliest
feelings and warmest attachment.
Mr. Barnes was always deeply inter
ested in the welfare of the town, and
until prevented by his failing health
actively and generously contributed
to every undertaking- having for its
purpose the advancement of the ma
terial, educational, or religious interest
oi the town. I le was of one of the
oldest and most highly respected
families of this section, born within
w hat is now the limits of the county.
He became in early life Sheriff and
continued to hold the office for many
years and until he voluntarily retired
to private life. I le thus became iden
tified! with the people of the county,
anel always n.anifesteel a warm at
taehment to anel sympathy with them
and their interests. With no dispo
sition to trespass upon the domain of
his inner life, the writer knowing
him intimately lor many years as a
friend and neighbor, thinks it but a
just and truthful tribute to his memo
ry to say that he found him loyal in
his attachments, generous in his
charities, ever ready to aid in good
works and relief of suffering, kind
anel sympathizing to the unfortunate,
given to hospitality. In his home he
was always at his best. Like all men
of strong character, he had con
victions and always gave honest anel
learltss expression to them. When
his confidence was once given, it was
rarely withdrawn and to those who'
enjoyed it he was candiel and confid
ing. High qualities of character
were greatly admire el by him and the
standards by which he judged men
were high anel accurate. He was
singularly free from ostentation or de
sire lor show. Simple anel natural in
his manners anil tastes, always ap
proachable by his friends anel especi
ally so by the poor and distressed.
Of his kinel offices, which were many,
he never spoke, and very many of
the most valuable and generous ser
vices renderetl by him are known
only to the recipients and confidential
friends. Trials and misfortunes came
to him, as to all of the children of
men death severed the tenderest
and strongest ties of his life. He
spoke but little of the experience of
h;s heart but those which found ex
pression bear assurance that, in
passing through the shadows, he was
sustained by the hone of a belter and
brighter home beyond.and the prom
ise ol the one who never fails those
who seek Him was realized. Those
who knew him best and loveel him
most are comforted with the assurance
that he rests safely on the other side.
We shall always cherish his memory
as one of the friends of our voting
manhooel always kinel and generous
More than twenty years' association
served to strengthen the bonds of

Nothing but words of commen
dation were heard by thousands of
ladies, gentlemen and children, who
attended Rob't. Hunting's Circus and
managerie this afternoon .and it is
probable that the tents will not hold
all the people who would like to at
tend this evening. Mr. Hunting the
proprietor, claims to be the only fool
ish person in the party. It may be
said, however, to his credit that in the
capacity of clown he is king of the
Circus arena of the present day, the
same as Dan Rice as many years ago.
He has no superior clown. He has
no superior as a clown. His work
elicited rounds of applause from the
immense audience, and his re appear
ance was each time greeted with ap
plause by those present even before
he attempted to be lunny. His com
edy was remarkably free from chest
nuts which clowns usually keep in
stock. He has surrounded himself
with a troope of stoge performers of
which he may be justly proud as
every act is a feature from starL to
finish. No circus and managerie
has exhibited in this city that has
given more universal satisfaction and
this, of itself, tloes account for Mr.
Hunting's popularity in the Oil Re
gions. The show is much larger and
better than ever and we cheeilully
recommend his show to all and they
will finel the proprietor, subordinates
