   DYERSBURG MAN DROWNS---Marvin Stephenson, age 38, prominent business man of this city was drowned in the Obion River at Lanes Ferry about 16 miles north of Dyersburg last night when his car crashed through the bridge railing into the water about 30 feet below.  Mr. Stephenson owned a country store about two hundred yards on the other side of the bridge and went out there early yesterday evening on business.  He had left there about nine o'clock to return to the city and the accident is supposed to have occurred a few minutes later. There were no witnesses to the accident and no means of explanation of the accident, unless it was that he swerved into the railing when he attempted to turn around a rock which is said to have been on the bridge.  The car passed between the iron network of the overhead bridge without striking either of the v-shaped beams.  The car was lodged on the side and the river was at a dept of about three feet above the car.  The body was removed from the machine about 7 o'clock, after the car had been located by oil in the water.  A search since early in the night when he failed to come home had carried parties all along the highway from Dyersburg to Lanes Ferry and by accident several times before they saw the hole in the bridge railing.  The dead man had a cut on the right side of his head, which is thought to have suffered when his car struck the railing.  He is survived by his wife and two daughters.

   CHARGED WITH MURDERING HIS WIFE---R.S.Clark,58,prominent farmer of near Tibbs, Haywood County, was brought to Brownsville and lodged in jail on a charge of murder in connection with the death of his wife, formerly Mrs. Alice Dickens,38,whom Clark married less than a month ago.  Unusual circumstances surround the death of Mrs. Clark.  The Clark home burned shortly after midnight but it is said to have been almost three hours later when Clark went to a negro who lived nearby and told him to summon help.  Tobe Smith and Clyde Hopkins, of Tibbs and others went to the house.  When they reached the home of Clark, they found that the barn had not been destroyed by the flames and in the corn crib was the body of
Mrs. Clark, according to statements made at a coroner's inquest today. Indications were that the woman had been beaten to death.  Dr. G. T. Scott, of Tibbs, who examined the body, reported that there was at least ten scalp wounds and that Mrs. Clark's skull had been fractured in two places.  Clark's explanation for the death of his wife was that she fell in the house prior to the fire and that he later dragged her to the barn to escape the flames, according to Sheriff Elias King of Brownsville, placing her in the corn crib to be out of the way of
flying sparks and embers from the blazing house.  
  Suspicion was at once aroused and when a 4 year-old son of Mrs. Clark by a former marriage told that his mother and step-father had been quarreling and that Clark had "been fighting" his mother, officers were
notified.  The little boy is said his mother crawled to the barn before the house caught fire.  A coroner's jury this afternoon in Tibbs after an inquest over her body held that the woman came to her death at the hands
of her husband.  Magistrate Tamm Graves, who conducted the inquest, is stated as saying that a gate leading into the barn lot was found a brick covered with blood and that a pool of blood was found in the lot near
the barn.   Mrs. Clark's funeral was held this afternoon in the cemetery at the Trinity Methodist Church at Nut Bush, not far from Tibbs. (more on Clark and how he is a prominent man in Haywood County)

   SOCIAL  HAPPENINGS--Mrs. M. M. LINDSEY--SOCIETY EDITOR---The announcement of the
engagement of Miss Joy TAYLOR and Mr. Alvin Broadus KLUTTS, is of wide spread interest, owing
to the prominence of the two families and the popularity of the young couple.  Miss TAYLOR is the daughter of Mr. & Mrs. MITCHELL TAYLOR, of Danville, KY., and is an especially  attractive young lady.  She was educated at Ward-Belmont, Nashiville and Kentucky College for Women at Danville.  Mr. KLUTTS is a son of the late Mr.& Mrs. R. C. KLUTTS, and is a graduate of Vanderbilt University and Columbia University, of New York City, and is a prominent young business man of Ripley.  The wedding will take place in the early fall.

   DEPUTY SHERIFF KILLS MAN RESISTING ARREST--Jackson, TN., June 30th---Hubert UNDERWOOD, 35, was shot and killed at a distillery site on the Haywood-Madison County lines this afternoon at 5 o'clock by Dave McCAGE, deputy sheriff, when the former attempted to take the latter's pistol, and the deputy then loaded the dead man in his automobile and brought the corpse and two other men, Jack & J. W. IVEY, to this city, where the deputy surrendered to Sheriff R. A. MAINERD and gave bond for $2000 for his appearance on the charge of manslaughter.  According to the statement of the IVEYs and McCAGE, UNDERWOOD was told to consider himself under arrest, whereupon, he advanced upon the deputy with a stick and grabbed the pistol which the officer held.  The officer thereupon opened fire, the ball striking back of the left ear and killing UNDERWOOD instantly.  Deputy McCAGE ordered the two IVEYs, also found at the still site, to assist him in placing the body of the 200 pound man in the car and they then drove to Jackson, a distance of 15 miles.  Neither of the IVEYs were put under arrest tonight.  Charges may later  be preferred against them and also against Andrew CLAY, colored, found near the still site.  The distillery site was in Panther Creek bottom where a number of illicit stills have been found of late.  A version of the difficulty as brought back by
Mr. UNDERWOOD, brother of the dead man,  is quite different from the report as above reproduced from Jackson.  He stated that Hubert was commissioned by the officer to go with him to arrest a negro at the
still; that they did arrest the negro, and after having done so, he says the officer gave the black a good
beating and was in the act of whipping the negro again, when Hubert remonstrated with him in an
effort to get him not to do so, saying that he thought the negro had been whipped enough; whereupon, he
claims , the officer became enraged at him and a difficulty followed which UNDERWOOD was killed.  BURGESS & PETERS, undertakers, in company with Mr. A. J. UNDERWOOD, brother of the deceased, went after the remains and brought them to Ripley Monday morning.  After being prepared for burial, they were
carried to the home of his parents, Mr. & Mrs. G. J. UNDERWOOD, on Brownsville Street, where the
funeral was held Thursday morning at 9:30 o'clock, followed by interment in Prospect Cemetery

   INFANT SON IS LAID TO REST---The funeral for little Isham Harris BROWN, twenty-three month
old son of Mr.& Mrs. C. Harris BROWN of Grand Avenue, was held at their residence Saturday
afternoon at 5 o'clock. A large number of sorrowing friends gathered to offer sympathy to the
bereaved parents and their tribute of love to their baby. The end came quite suddenly at 4 o'clock
Friday afternoon. Friday morning the child was apparently in the best of health, and was downtown
with his mother. He was brought to the Sun office on Friday morning, where it is remarked by
members of the force that he looked splendidly and seemed to be standing the hot weather in a fine
manner.  At noon, there was no indication of the sudden illness with which he was seized about 2
o'clock.  Every effort was made to give him life, but the skill of the physicians was to no avail, and he
passed into his last sleep. 
  News of the passing of the child spread rapidly over the city and many expressions of sympathy
for the parents were heard from all sides. Services were conducted by Dr. E. D. McDOUGELL of the
First Presbyterian Church, and a hymn was sung by a quartette composed of 
Mrs. G. C. WILKERSON, Mrs. Jesse MIDYETT,  Guy WINDROM and Earl HAWKINS.  Following the
services at the home, interment was made in the Hollywood Cemetery.

---IN MEMORY OF OUR SON---Alvin Lee JENNINGS---On Sunday evening, July 19th, God in His infinite power, entered our home and bore away the sweet spirit of our dearly beloved son, Alvin, and wafted it home to dwell with Jesus and all the saints of that celestial city. How our hearts were bowed with grief and pain, when we had to stand by and see our darling boy pass away.  It came with such force it seemed more
than we could stand.  Our home is not a home anymore, for a dark gloom hovers around us everywhere we
look. Oh, so sad and lonely.  We did all in our power for him. we prayed for God to spare our child, but "Thy will be done, not ours."
