Poer, of Gwynnevllle, Shelby county, was about the 8tate House to-day, looking after the reports of the State Fish and Game Commissioner, to which he and his constituents are entitled and discussing matters of state with the Governor’s private secretary, George B. Lockwood.“How about that novel of yours? When are you going to have it printed?” he was asked.Poer wrote a novel based largely on hisexperience as a lover and a candidate forthe Legislature, except that he was notcharged with committing a murder andwas not pardoned by the Governor afteranother had confessed, and his sweetheartdid not visit the Governor's office and on her knees implore the “kind ruler” to exercise clemency. Poer felt during the Legislature that he was entitled to some of the literary fame he found Newton Booth Tarktngton enjoying.“The story Is not quite finished.“ he said to-day. “I got it out the other day and looked it over. You know how it is. After a fellow has laid aside something he wrote and takes It out again, he finds things he could Improve on.“Tarklngton wants me to send It up to him and let him look It over, but it ain’t In no shape for that now. Lots of places are all scratched out and it don't look good. If I send It I'll typewrite It first.Poer wears in his watch the picture of the devoted young woman that in his literary Imagination pleaded with the Governor.“What do you hear about the ‘ripper’?Oh, I don’t carp to talk about that.What do your people think about it?“What do they care about that?” was Poer's answer. Poer voted for the “ripper” on the strength of a promise he said the Governor made to approve the Shelby Circuit Court bill. But the Governorvetoed the court bill.Poer says the prospect for crops In Shelby is fine.; that tcpulled seatedof the pected and Gi that plt; polls t((Mr. ; though Federa from h “The undout This to indl war, Gthe lm great i Mr, : and st formed Moone;and ththe fir streetsectionhouses of the tion tn sale h bulldln pled b:No Trace of George W.
