the home of two noted warriors of the

Sen. Chalmers. During Gen. her-

Mrs. M. E. Pope is a prominent resi
dent, and is a lady with a history.
She went to Memphis with her hus
band in 18:S9. "My husband," she
told me, "was engaged to deliver the
oration on tho Fourth of July, and as
our house was just north of Adams
street, we walked through dense forest
to get to tho town." Her son, Adju
tant I'ope. perhaps the youngest of
that rank in the rebel army, received
his death wound at the battle of Tisho
niing Creek. Mrs. Pope is a rveteran
teacher. Her pupils are the teachers
not only of Hernando, but of Mem
phis and other cities, and she is to-day
training the grandchildren of her
iormer pupils. At one time she
wrote poetry for the Appeal,

j. j. vHuey is anotner weii-Known
Hernandoan. He came here in 18.'Ji,
and has made it his home ever since.
About thirty-five years ago he was
elected a magistrate, and served in
that capacity for four years, but the
title of 'Squire has adhered ever
since. (liver notice how fond we
.-outlierners are of titles?) He is still

About half a mile from town is the

Goodman, called "Laughing Hills."
When he started in there his neigh
bors, who knew nothing but cotton
planting, laughed at him, but (iood
nian was wise in his generation and
has made a palpable success of his
venture. Ilis place of l."0 ncres is
well cultivated. He has four acres in
grapes. Ives's Seedling he finds best
suited, from which each season he
makes 150 gallons of wine (and verv
good it is), and has lots of friu't to sefl
m New Orleans and Chicago. He
also raises apples, pears and peaches,
devoting ten acres to his orchard. Be

well-built barn he shows the fine stal

C.H. R. No. 13,861), by imported
Paddy (No. 8W). I suppose stock
men will excuse these reKreuces to
tne register. Mr. Goodman has an
attractive home, and has reared an in
teresting family of olive branches. He
has, I believe, inculcated the grand
lesson that cotton is by no means the
best crop for this locality.
Talking of stock men, I must not
iorget to mention Mr. Don M. Dockery,
who has a notable stock farm of 1315
acres, and some fine cattle, including
liiii-uiuouuu registered Jerseys.
"If people about here would only quit
raising cotton." Mr. Dockery said to
me, yon would see richer men and a
finer grade of land. The longer a man
raises cotton the poorer he and his
mud become." Ihe present season
