J RATHER SUDDEN DEATH
A. J. Porter, Who Visited Several Weeks

The sad news was telegraphed G.M.
Porter of this city Saturday night

Virginia home he bid his boys and
their families an affectionate farewell,

It would be the final parting of sons
The Journal regrets to chronicle the
demise of the deceased, because It Is
like parting with an old friend of
many years' standing, while our ac
quaintance was of but a few weeks'
duration. He is of true Virginian
characteristics, genial to a fault, warm
hearted and sympathetic in all his ac
tions. While here visiting his sons
and other friends ho made many
friends by his genial qualities, who ex
tend sympathy to the bereaved sons
n the loss of a kind and affectionate
The sons living In this county are
Will and John, of near Murray; Blair,
of Union; Wade, of near Nehawka.and
George M. of this city. The announce
ment of Mr. Porter's death came as a
great shock to the boys, and owing to
the Illness of John's wife, he was un
able to leave, and Wade departed yes
terday to attend the funeral.
Interment will be made In the ceme
tery, near Seven Mile Ford, and the
remains laid at rest beside those of
the wife and mother who passed away
about two years ago.

Never Gets Too Old.

Mr. Kibble will offer amusement lov
ers next Saturday, December 15, at
the Parmele theatre. The scenes,
which are large enough to fill the
most spacious stage, could not easily
be Improved. Those represents the
Ohio river in winter, the rocky pass
In which George narrls protects his
family, the St. Clair plantation, the
levee at New Orleans, the cotton fields
In full blooom and the "Celestial City"
are all the most notable efforts, each
picture being the reality as closely as
that which paint and canvass will
permit, and the stage Defective is so
deep that the effect Is exceptionally
pleasing. The company is worthy of
its environment. So many skilled ac
tors have never before been ensaecd
together as In this play. Frank Lee,
the eminent minstrel star, offers an
excellent study of "Uncle Tom," pre
serving the atmosphere and accent of
the old slave to a remarkable degree.
