Opelika, Ala., Aug. 5. About 5
o'clock yesterday evening George Cam
bie, a Democrat, arrived at Five Points
.from Fayette on horseback, rode up to a
crowd discussing politics and yelled
"Hurrah for Johnson!" This enraged
James Trammel, a Populist, who shot
Cnmbie. While Cumbie was lying on
the ground dying the Populist gang cut
his head from his body. Young White
and Frank Cumbie, Democrats, fired on
the three Trammels, and Sadie White, a
Populist, and George Cumbie, a Demo
crat, were killed. Milt Trammel, Popu
list, was shot and his condition is un
known. James Trammel, Populist, was
shot and will die. Young White, a
Democrat, was seriously wounded.

ference has agreed that the state con
vention shall nominate candidates for
state offices, after which the silver Re
publicans will withdraw, organize a
separate convention and nominate elec
tors for Bryan and Sewall, while those
remaining will nominate electors pledged
to McKinley and Hobart. The conven
tion will be held September 9 at Helena,
six days after the Democratic conven
Butte, Mont., Aug. 5. The Republi
can state committee met today to fix the
time and place for the state convention.
The meeting was made the occasion for
the gathering of prominent Republicans
from all parts of the state for consulta
tion as to the best course to pursue as to
presidential electors. Senator Mantle is
chairman of the state committee. Sev
eral propositions for settling the differ
ences between the McKinley and Bryan

Wisconsin Republican Convention.
Milwaukee, Aug. 5. What promises
to be the most exciting political conven
tion ever held in the state was called to
order at noon today'' by Chairman Ed
Coe of the Republican Etate central com
mittee. C. A. Lamoreaux of Ashland
was made temporary chairman. "Com
ing as I do from an iron producing sec
tion of the country," Lamoreaux said,
"I have no doubt our people would favor
the free and unlimited coinage of iron at
some arbitrary ratio, and there would be
about as much reason in such demand
as there is in the demand for the free
coinage of silver at 16 to 1." He attrib
uted the present depression to the
Democratic tariff policy.
Admission Will Be Free.
New York, Aug. 5. It was an
nounced at Democratic headquarters to
day that Mr. Sewall would be present at
the meeting at Madison Square Garden
on the 12th, when W. J. Bryan will be
formally notified of his nomination.
There has been some doubt as to
whether Sewall would be present, but
W. P. St. John said today that be would
be notified at the same time as Bryan.
The admission to Madison Square Gar
den on the occasion will be free. There
will be no tickets required for admission.

Discovery I owe my . life. Was taken
with La Grippe and tried all the. physi
cians for miles about, but of no avai

.Water Famine in Arkansas.
Little Rock, Ark., Aug. 5. A water
famine exists in large portions of Ar
kansas and in some sections human be
ings are. actually suffering from the
pangs of thirst. There have been iso
lated thunder showers in various por
tions of the state recently, but in some
counties no rain has fallen since April
13, and the sofferipg is almost beyond
belief. A gentlemen who 'arrived this
morning from an overland trip through
Jefferson, Cleveland and Bradley coun
ties says that people in some localities
are hauling water for drinking purposes
a distance of 2o miles. For an entire
day be was unable to buy a glass of
water to quench his thirst.
There is nothing that causes women
greater discomfort and misery than the
constant recurring Headache. Men
suffer less with Headache. "My wife's
health was very indifferent, having
Headache continually, and just two
packages of Simmons Liver Regulator
released her from all Headache and gave
tone and vigor to her whole system. I
have never regretted its use." M. B.
DeBord, Mt. Vernon, Ky.
None But Ayer's at the World's Fair.
Ayer'e Sarsaparilla' enjoys the extra
ordinary distinction of having been the
only blood purifier allowed on exhibit at
the world's . fair, Chicago. Manufact
urers of other sarsaparillas sought by
every means to obtain a showing of their
goods, but they were all turned away
under the application of the rule for
bidding the entry of patent medicines
and nostrums. The decision of the
world's fair authorities in tavor of Ayer's
Sarsaparilla was in effect as follows :
"Ayer's Sareaparilla Is not a patent
medicine. It does not belong to the
list " of nostrums. It is here on its
