About two weeks ago, Mr. Ball shot and killed a rabbit. He had a little pimple, or slight abrasion on the hand. But thought nothing of it. Perhaps did not know the danger of handling a rabbit or squirrel, with a sore place on the hand. In a few days the little sore place became infected, became red, painful and swollen. The infection spread rapidly, developing into pneumonia. And death resulted.
Tularama, or rabbit fever, was not know until recently. It was discovered in California, but has spread pretty well over the country. Not all rabbits or squirrels are effected. But many are. It is a germ disease, and thorough cooking kills the germs. So there is no danger in eating rabbit or squirrel that has been well cooked. But it is dangerous to get the raw blood on the hands, especially if there is a broken place in the skin. The only safe way to handle or dress rabbit, is to weat good rubber gloves, and wash them clean after use.

The funeral service was held at the home in Palacios on Sabbath afternoon at 1:30 with Rev. George F. Gillespie officiating in the absence of Rev. J. E. Mack, pastor of the Methodist Church, who was out of town attending a Church conference. The preacher chose as his Scripture passage, 2 Cor., Ch. 5, vv.1 and 8, and Psalm 15. He said Psalm 15 contained a description of a citizen of Zion, or in other words it described a Christian gentleman. The preacher said he had known the deceased intimately for 21 years, and paid tribute to his loyalty as a friend, his kindness of heart, and his love of home.
Mr. Brandon was a man of high principle. He had certain rules of conduct which he always carried out in his business and in his private life, and these were exemplified in the verses read from the 15th Psalm. Without truth there can be no virtue. Mr. Brandon believed in speaking the truth in his heart, he walked uprightly and worked, righteousness, and considered always that a man's word was as good as his bond. He was born in Pulaski, Giles County, Tenn. His father was a farmer, and he often talked about his early life and upbringing on the farm. He attended Giles College in his native county, and came to Columbus, Texas, at an early age, where his brother Kenneth had preceded him. He was a commercial traveler for 25 years-working 22 years for the same company-and afterwards engaged in ranching and rice farming. While living in Columbus he was united in marriage to Miss Lena Farmer, and to this union was born one son, Thomas. During the years he lived in Columbus he was an active worker in the Knights of Pythias Lodge. He came to Palacis 32 years ago and engaged in the dry goods business until he turned the business over to his son a few years ago. Mr. Brandon was spared to a ripe old age. He was successful in his business undertakings. Perhaps his distinguishing trait was that he enjoyed life. He was known for his hearty laugh and for his love of company. He was a sincere and loyal Christian having been a member of the Methodist Church for many years. He was a liberal giver to all the cause of the church. He always attended church worship both morning and evening, and sang in the choir. The members of the Methodist Church will miss his cheery presence and his friendly ways.-G. F. Gillespie in Palacios Newspaper.
Mr. Brandon kept in touch with his old home by keeping up his subscription to the Citizen.

Death ended the life of Helen Brashears, known to many friends here and at a distance as "The Little Soldier on the home front," at one-thirty Tuesday afternoon at the Pulaski Hospital, the scene of much of her valiant fight for survival during the months she had been undergoing painful and tedious treatment that involved grafting of skin to her severly burned back.
The little patient had regained consciousness after undergoing the third of a series of skin grafting operations Tuesday morning and had spoken a few words to her solicitous doctors and nurses when her tired little heart called a halt to her fight to live.
In her last hours, as in the hours of every day that she had spent as a patient at the hospital, the skillful hands of doctors and nurses did everything humanly possible to prolong the life of the little girl, whose patient endurance of the suffering had won the love of every member of the hospital work force.
The little girl was brought to the hospital from her home in the Bodenham community in the latter part of December, when her clothing caught fire at an open grate as she stood with her back to the fire.
In the intervening months, kindhearted doctors and nurses and the many friends whose gifts have been showered on "the little soldier" have left nothing undone that would add to her comfort. That realization is a source of consolation to the heart-broken father and his other four motherless children, whose gratitude is boundless.
Funeral services for the little girl were held at four o'clock Wednesday afternoon at the Scott's Hill Baptist Church by Elder Harry R. Fox, pastor of the Pulaski Church of Christ, and butial was by the side of her mother's grave in the church cemetery.

No other member of the family was in the house at the time, according to statements made to officers out of the Sheriff's office, investigating the case.
Mrs. Campbell had gone to the spring, about a hundred yards from the residence, to leave a bucket of milk. She and her husband had been talking together just before she left the house with the bucket of milk. She said she heard no shot, and was much surprised to find her husband lying on his face, dead in a great pool of blood.
Officers and citizens investigating the case Monday, after a preliminary investigation Sunday night, reached the conclusion, it was a case of suicide.

There was a little 22 rifle in the home. But this was in the rack, in a different room. And there was no indication of powder burn on the shirt or body where the bullet entered. And it is hard to conceive how a man might have shot himself through the heart, left no sign of powder burn, unbreached the rifle, removed the empty shell, placed the rifle in the rack, passed out of one door into a hall, crossed the hall and passed through another door in the room where the body was found, leaving no trace of blood anywhere, except the pool where the body was lying.

COLE, Wilson The Pulaski Citizen 2 Jul 1941
Esq. Wilson Cole who lived about four miles out on the Minor Hill Road, died under rather mysterious circumstances Friday night. The body was found, parked in his auto, on the road near Cope Whitfield's Saturday morning. And because no one knew how he came to be there, an inquest was held. But nothing suspicious was developed.
Mr. Cole left home late Friday evening to attend the regular weekly meeting of the Odd Fellows Lodge. There was nothing unusual about that. He often attended the lodge meetings. On this occassion he brought some of the children to the picture show. And expected to take them home, after the lodge meeting.
He attended the lodge meeting, and was one of the last to leave. Nobody, so far as known, has any definite idea of his movements, after he left the lodge. One guess may be as good as another.
Our guess is, that the paralytic stroke, which is supposed to have caused his death, came on gradually. That he was somewhat confused when he reached his car, and so forgot all about the children. That he got into the car and started home as he thought. But at the Highway crossing at Windsor Village, he went south on 31 instead of going west on 64. At Cemetery Street he turned left on Cemetery Street, in his confused condition, instead of turning on the Minor Hill road as he supposed. He probably passed out beyond John Burns' place, struck the Owl Hollow Road, and was going west toward Highway 31, when he realized that he was seriously sick, and completely lost.
Apparently, he had stopped the car, left the lights burning and got out of the car, possibly to call for help. Not seeing a house near, apparently he started to get back into the car. One foot was on the running board, one on the ground, and the upper part of the body, was slumped into the car, in which position the body was found next morning.
Our information is that Dr. Blackburn, after examining the body, said death probably resulted from paralysis, and that he had probably been dead about eight hours, when found.
When Mr. Cole failed to return from the lodge meeting, Friday night, Mrs. Cole naturally became alarmed, called members of the lodge, and efforts were made to fine him. But the body was not discovered until people began to stir Saturday morning.

COLE, T. Wilson Cole The Pulaski Record 2 Jul 1941
The body of T. Wilson Cole, 60, Giles County farmer and assistant rural mail carrier, was found in his car on the Elkton Highway south of Pulaski at 8 o'clock Saturday morning.
Sheriff Gordon Topp said two hours after the discovery that Cole, who suffered a paralytic stroke two years ago, apparently was the victim of another seizure.
The sheriff's office was informed of the death by a resident of the community where the body was found. A search ahd been started for Cole by his family after his failure to return home from a meeting he attended Friday night in Lawrenceburg.
Cole was a member of the Church of Christ and the IOOF Lodge.
Surviving are his wife, three children, George W., Mary Anne and Clara Reed Cole, Pulaski; five sisters, Miss Beulah Cole, Pulaski, Mrs. Russell Gilbert, Akron, Ohio, Mrs. Ray Davis, Lawrenceburg, Mrs. Anna Daniels, Prospect, and Mrs. Willie Sewell, of Giles County; and two brothers, Earl and Wilburn Cole of Minor Hill.

He maintained good order, and his classes made good progress in their school work. In addition to their textbooks, they were taught respect for law and order, and elderly people.
In young manhood, Mr. Collins married Miss Ella Josephine Loyd, of the large Loyd family between Elkton and Bryson. To the family were born two sons, Wilson and Clifford. Both developed into fine types of American manhood. Wilson as a school boy became a noted athlete. Through college he maintained his reputation. And after graduating became a popular coach, first at the University of Tennessee, then at Knoxville High. His death some two years ago, was a great blow to his aged father. The other son, Clifford, became a clerk in Loyd's Drug Store, and later one of the proprietors, where he is a popular business man, in the prime of life.
Mr. Collins was a member of the Methodist Church, from early life. He had one accomplishment of which the general public knew little. He was a skillful violinist. And kept up his music until well beyond eighty. He did not play for the public but for his own love of music and the violin. Usually in the evening, as the shadows deepened, after supper, he would get out his violin, and for an hour or two would pour forth his soul in the soft, mellow notes of the violin.
In addition to his son, Clifford, Mr. Collins is survived by two half-sisters, Mrs. Anna Birdsong and Mrs. W. M. Oliver, and a half-brother, Dr. Porter McCormack.

DOTSON, Richard Eugene "Dick" The Pulaski Citizen 14 Jul 1943
Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Dotson of Pulaski received a telegram Friday from the War Department that their son, Richard Eugene Dotson, Jr., Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Corps, died July fifth in the Southwest Pacific.
Following receipt of the telegram a letter from War Department reached the heartbroken parents Wednesday morning in which it was explained that Lt. Dotson died in an accident in the Pacific war area while "in unselfish service."
While no details of the accident were given, it is assumed by his parents that the young officer had reached the scene of action in that area where he came to his death.

It is not known that the young officer had not been out of the United States for many days, as his last letter to his parents, written in San Francisco, bore the date of June 21. Because of that, hope existed that a mistake had been made in the tragic news of the telegram, but it was blasted by the official letter Wednesday.
Young Dotson, one of the outstanding boys in Giles County, was a member of the 1940 graduating class at Giles County High School and had finished his pre-law course at Cumberland University, Lebanon. During his years at both schools, he had taken an active part in different phases of school work, especially in the realm of public speaking.
At the close of his sophomore year at Cumberland, the young man answered the call of his country by volunteering for service in the Air Corps, and had been in training in California and Arizona until he left for foreign service a few short weeks ago.
In the death of Lt. Dotson, Giles County has suffered the loss of one of its finest young men and has again been brought face to face with the grim reality of war that demands the flower of the nation's manhood.
Heartfelt sympathy is extended the grief-stricken parents, whose only son made the supreme sacrifice that the nation might live.
The Pulaski Citizen 6 Dec 1944
Among the first Giles County boys serving in the U. S. Air Corps to give his life for his country was Second Lieut. Richard Eugene Dotson, Jr., 22 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Dotson of Pulaski, who was killed in an airplane accident July 5, 1943, somewhere in Australia.
Born an reared in Pulaski, young Dotson was a member of the 1940 graduating class of Giles County High School. Throughout the years spent in that school he was a leader in class work and in public speaking, having received as president of the Senior High Dramatic Club in the years 1939 and 1940.
Following his graduation from high school, the young man entered the law department of Cumberland University, Lebanon, at the beginning of the fall term in 1940. Here he continued his interest in public speaking and was selected as a member of the University Debating Team to compete with speakers in the states of Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas.
In 1942, he volunteered for service in the Air Corps and was sent to Santa Ana, Calif., for basic training. Later he received training at Palm Dale, Mercer and Glendale, Calif., and at Chandler, Ariz., where he was awarded his pilot's wings a short time before he was sent overseas in June, 1943.
Only a few weeks later-July 5-the tragic message of the young flier's death was received by his parents, and sometime afterwards a letter came from a friend of young Dotson's telling of the beautiful and touching service that marked the burial of their son on that foreign soil.
A member of the Methodist Church, Dick Dotson was among the leaders in the young people's work and a regular and faithful attendant at all Church services. In his death, the Church and the town sustained an irreparable loss.

At the age of 45, when life was so full of hope and happiness, why should one so useful and worth while be called away, leaving the hearts of loved ones crushed and bleeding? Truly his sun went down while it was yet day, for scarcely had he come to the meridian of life. The passing of this highly esteemed citizen opens the fountain of sympathy in the hearts of many friends, in this time of great sorrow, leaving the home desolate, and the sweetest hopes forever withered.
Born and reared in the Frankewing community, he taught school for a short period of time, later buying a farm and farming until his present position, as assistant cashier of the Bank of Frankewing. He had served as Justice of the Peace for the 10th Civil District since 1936 and had made the court an honorable and conscientious member, always attesting for the right.
Ermon gave himself to the Lord early in life and was a simple trusting child of God. Word's but feebly express the beauty of his character. It was a privilege to know him here, it will be a benediction to meet him in eternity.
He died of an incurable malady of the spine. For more than a year he battled bravely with death, suffering the any agonies peculiar to his complaint, but like Job of old, he was true to God. He had a cheerful disposition and wore a smile all through life that never faded.
Funeral services were conducted Friday morning at 11 o'clock at Mt. Zion Church by the Rev. Vance Park and his body was laid to rest in the Wright Cemetery, beneath a mound of lovely flowers, attesting the loyalty of his many friends.
Surviving are his wife, Aileen Arney Harwell, his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Harwell and three brothers and four sisters.
To the dear wife and to the bereaved family, I commend you to Him who hath said, "There shall be no more death, neither sorrow," and may you find great comfort in the presence of Him who said, "Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." Mrs. F. R. Edmundson

JONES, James Llewellyn "Lew " The Pulaski Citizen 4 Sep 1940
Lew Jones, well-known and much beloved citizen of Pulaski, entered final sleep about 10:30 o'clock Saturday night, age 75.
Lew Jones came of pioneer stock. His father was a scholarly man and in his young manhood was a teacher in Giles College. Later he became a Justice of the Peace and was for some time Chairman of the County Court. He was the first County Judge, and served in that capacity for several years.
Lew was well educated, especially in English and literature. And as a young man he became assistant Postmaster and did most of the work. In that capacity he became personally acquainted with practically every person in and near Pulaski, an acquaintance which he kept up and extended, as the youngsters came on, and strangers came in. Probably no other man in the community knew personally so many people in the Seventh District, as he, white and black, rich and poor.
About forty years ago, the editor of the Citizen needed an assistant news reporter and office man. Some one suggested Lew Jones, and the result of an interview, was association in the business, which has continued with only slight interruptions, to the end.
A few years later the Nashville Banner, wanted a local reporter. Mr. Romine recommended Lew Jones, and he was engaged, and continued local reporter for the Banner for thirty-five years, and was recognized as one of the best in the state.
A little later he was elected Corporation Justice of the Peace, and for several years held three jobs at one time. His with with the Citizen, with the Banner, and as Justice of the Peace.
About twenty-two years ago, he became a candidate for the office of City Recorder, which in addition to keeping records of the Board Meetings, carried with it the duties of City Treasurer and Judge of the Police Court. That office has been his life work since.
It is proper to state that he never undertook a political venture with out discussion and mutual understanding with the editor. And when he gave up his work with the Citizen, it was with the understanding he might return if he wanted to. He enjoyed his newspaper work. And as much for the pleasure it afforded, as the pay he received for it, he kept up his special column of personal and local items, almost every week. He carried a key to Citizen Office to the last. And at any time, day or night, or Sunday, was welcome to come in., read the exchanges, prepare copy, and generally make himself at home. We knew, and loved, trusted and understood each other like brothers. And while others will miss his wholesome passages, no one will miss his contributions to the Citizen, as the editor will.

In young manhood he met and won Miss Lucille Pack, who made a congenial companion. They loved the same things, and each was devoted to the other. The raised two brilliant daughters. After completing such educational advantages as were offered in Pulaski, they completed A. B. courses at Peabody College. Then they went to Columbia College, and took their A.M. Degrees there. And for several years have maintained themselves in congenial literary surroundings, as coaches, and literary assistants to students who need assistance, and have means to pay for it.
Mr. Jones had a beautiful tenor voice, and in the home with brothers and sisters, or occasionally in a barber-shop chorus, he would sing the melodies which were popular in the 80's and 90's. But he was timid about singing in public.
The only survivors of the immediate family now here, are his wife, and his sister, Mrs. Buford Short. The two daughters, Misses Lucile and Lynette, live in New York. There are several nieces and nephews, none of whom live here.
An impressive funeral service was held at the Methodist Church of which he had long been a constant member., Monday afternoon at 3:00 o'clock. A wealth of beautiful florals indicated the esteem in which he was held. A male quartette of good voices sang some of his old-time favorites. And Mr. Bratcher, the pastor, and Dr. Morgan, former pastor, conducted the simple service which might have met his approval, if he had planned the program.
At the Cemetery, the Junior Order, of which he had long been a member, conducted the burial service according to the ritual of the order.
Farewell brother. We commend thee to the loving kindness and tender mercies of the Just and Wise Judge, who will pass final judgement on the things written in the book of life.

After lingering in the shadow s for about a year, Mrs. G. A. Morgan passed away at the Pulaski Hospital , Friday night, peacefully and gently, as a babe going to sleep.

As a young woman she met, and later married the Rev. G. A. Morgan, a young Methodist preacher, who was at the time stationed near her father's home.

One son was born to them, George A. Morgan, Jr. And it was the ambition of each of his parents to give him even better opportunities than they enjoyed, although each had enjoyed the benefits of a good education.
When Dr. Morgan was President of Martin College, Mrs. Morgan was his chief assistant. Even when he had occasion to be away from the College for a few days, the work went on smoothly under her guidance.
Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Methodist Church, Rev. S. R. Bratcher, pastor in charge, assisted by Rev. Cullen T. Carter, District Superintendent, officating. In keeping with Mrs. Morgan's wishes, the service was short and simple.

NIX, Robert The Pulaski Citizen 17 Jul 1940
Robert Nix of the Blue Creek community killed his wife and himself sometime about 10 o'clock, at their home, Sunday night.
According to Sheriff Joe Henry, and Deputy Keltner, who visited the scene, it appears that Mr. Nix struck his wife probably with the breach end of a double barrel shot gun. The blow apparently broke the gun stock. Then the enraged man beat the head of the woman with the heavy gun barrel, till the head was beaten almost to pulp.
At sometime, probably after Mrs. Nix was killed, Mr. Nix went to a neighbor's, and asked to borrow a gun and some shells, saying something had been after his chickens. He took the gun and three shells.
He left two notes, for his daughter who had gone to Lewisburg to visit her sister. One note was left on the front porch with a lamp. This told the young lady not to come in without help. The other note, left in the house gave direction about where to bury the bodies. Having completed plans, Mr. Nix apparently placed the muzzle of the loaded gun to his forehead, and pulled the trigger, blowing off the whole top of his head.
Mr. and Mrs. Nix were well to do farm people. They had raised a family of five daughters and two sons. One of the sons died a few years ago, one is a truck driver, and four of the daughters are married. The youngest daughter was living at home with her parents.
It is reported that during the last few years, relations between Mr. and Mrs. Nix, had not been agreeable. Some six months ago, Mrs. Nix left home, and later filed suit for divorce. But before the case came up for trial, some of the children intervened, and Mr. and Mrs. Nix agreed to make up, and the divorce proceeding was dismissed. The appeared to be getting along satisfactorily. And probably no one will ever know what precipitated the trouble.

PAYSINGER, Hattie Chuck "H. C." The Pulaski Citizen 17 Jul 1940
In the passing of H. C. Paysinger, Wednesday night, July 10, the editor has lost more than a friend. For twenty years Mr. Paysinger had been a correspondent of the Citizen under the pen name Sparks Knocker from Crack Hill. He missed few issues of the Citizen. And in recent years, he was a frequent visitor of the Citizen Office. He was a genial comrade and co-worker, interested in the Citizen, and all the force.
He not only reported the local news of the community in which he lived. But would report important happenings from the Bryson and Bunker Hill communities, of other reporters overlooked such items.
A vein of quaint humor ran through all his writings. And we do not know how many subscribers took the Citizen, just for the sake of his comment on various subjects. Some of these lived even beyond the borders of Tennessee. Had no special interest in local news. But enjoyed Mr. Paysinger's quaint humor.

Mr. Paysinger came by his names in an unusual way. When a baby, he was not named at once. His father and mother talked about a name for the baby, but did not agree on any of the family names. When the baby was a month or so old, the father was in a store in town one day, when a bright little girl came in, and the merchant said, "Good morning, Hattie." Mr. Paysinger was impressed by the name, and good manners of the little girl. So when he returned home, he told the mother he had a name for the baby. The mother agreed, and so the first name became "Hattie." The mother died when Mr. Paysinger was only about two years old. His father worked at the mill on Elk River. And soon the little boy was playing about the mill. And became a great favorite with the mill people. One of these was a good natured Irishman who took much interest in the little boy. When Hattie was about eight years old, had learned to swim and fish, one day he had two fish hooks set out, and was playing about. His Irish friend observed the boy had gotten out of sight of his fishing, and for a joke, picked up a red-headed woodpecker that some one had killed, and hooked on one of the fish hooks, replacing the fishing pole about as it had been left.
When the little boy thought of his fishing, he ran up to see if he had caught anything. And when he pulled up the bird, instead of a fish, the Irishman was watching, called out, "The boy has caught a woodchuck." Other people, joined in fun, calling the little boy, Wood Chuck. In a little while the "Wood" was dropped, and the boy acquired his second name. He was called by friends, sometimes Hattie, at other times, Chuck. When he became a man he accepted both names and signed himself, H. C. Paysinger. He married as a young man, and raised a fine family of boys and girls, all of whom survive.
We shall miss Mr. Paysinger. Not only the editor, the office force, and his family and friends, his church and Sunday School, will miss him. Also, hundreds of people who never knew him personally, will miss his good natured, good humored comments.
