THE TTHjJSOSIX CITIZEN.
CAPT. C. P. JONES.
Will Positively Deliver his Lecture
on the Centennial this (Thurs
day) Evening at Antoinette
Seats Free, and the Public Invited.
The hall will doubtless be tilled to
its utmost capacity-, though we re
gret exceedingly that another en
gagement will debar us of the pleas
ure of listening to our gifted young
The Carriers' Address.
Our faithful carrier boys, who
have not failed a single morning
this year to deliver the Citizen
promptly to your door, will be
'round on Christmas day with the
most profusely illustrated, unique,
interesting, and really valuable
pamphlet greeting ever presented
to their patrons. They will expect
a liberal reception. The book will
contain four illustrated humorous
stories, to-wit: "How we spent the
Christmas Holidays," with illustra
tions showing how to perform many
amusing and entertaining tricks and
tableaux for home amusement.
"The Mysterious Lodger," with
many side-splitting caricatures. "A
new Style of Love Story," in which
Letitia, the loveby, had two suiters.
One was 3-oung and wealthy; the
other was old and poor, but deserv
ing. Very comic. Closing with
-'Mr. Titburj' and his Christmas
Turkey," a most laughable extrava
ganza profusely illustrated. Al
together, the greeting is a splendid
one, and aside from being the carrier-boys'
hope of reward and ele
pendence for holiday funds, is rich
ly worth an man's silver dollar.
They will accept anything -ou may
choose to give them for it, though
it only be a quarter. They have to
go through sleet, and snow, and
rain, and sometimes it is exceed
ingly cold, but they never fail or
falter. Is it not worth a cent each
week, at least? J
In the Jockey Yard first Monday
was an amusing scence. A cross
roads bully, with just enough ben
zine aboard to make him imagine
he could snatch the man in the
moon baldheaded, was hunting
around for somebody to chaw up.
In the crowd was a pensive looking
youth with a broken legged mule
to swap, who said not much and
had a kind of solemn aspect; and
some wicked fellow whispered to
the bully that the pensive youth
was a Seceder and he might curse
and beat him with impunitj-. Mr.
bully had heard, with the balance
of us, that it was a part of the Se
ceder creed to return good for evil
and to always turn the other cheek
to be slapped. He knew then he!
had a good thing and he could de
monstrate his powers on this inno
cent youth without danger. He ac
cordingly sidled up to the boy, slap
ped him on the shoulder, jerked him
around and told him to tremble,
for his time had come. He tiptoed
over him, caught him by the ear
and fi owned elown upon him with a
w rathful grin, and waited for the
fellows to crowd up around so they
could see the fun and hear the
youth's knees knock together and
while he was waiting he thought
over his cuss-word vocabulary and
culled the choicest, hotest brands
to shower on the head of the unfor
tunate fellow, and the crowd had
collected and he had his mouth set
to begin his elegant anathemas, and
he twisted the youth's ears as a key
note, when lo! the firmament seemed
to open to his view and "the ground
to tremble beneath him and he
heard somthing drop. The pensive
3 011th had struck up with a mighty
heave and took the bully just under
the chin while his tongue was out,
and stretchad him over in a gull'.
In ten minutes he slowly opened
his eyes and asked which way the
mule went,and then it slowly dawned
upon him that it was the Seceder
who had kicked. He picked him
self up with a grunt and mounted
his horse and in ten mimutes more
was slowly going toward home
We wish that every business and
professional man in Pulaski would
feel inclined to help sustain a home
paper. We do not claim any man's
oatronage as a right; but we do
think there is a sort of moral obliga
tion resting upon every good citizen
to patronize and support home en
terprises. We do not claim to print
the best paper in the world; but
we are more than willing for it to be
compared with any of our country
weeklies. One thing we do know:
the better the patronage the better
the paper. Our subscription list
was never better, but there is great
room for improvement 3-et. Our
merchants and professional men
have been very liberal heretofore,
but this -ear they have generally
cut down their advertisements, and
some have discontinued them alto
gether. We hope the3T will recon
sider this suicidal course, and in
1ST7, leud a helping hand to the
Citizen, and help us to make it ev
en better than it ever has been.
Prof. Hexrv Fakmf.k came down
on a professional trip last Tuesda3',
and will remain until after the con
cert next Wednesda' evening. In
the meantime if an- pianos are out

opportunity to have them put in or

strongest possible testimonials from
Nashville, and will guarantee satis-

The excitement caused by the
presidential election has about sub
sided in this neighborhood, and the
people are hopeful that the matter
will be settled and justice done
without recourse to arms. Had it
been left to a popular vote the fu
neral dirge of the Radical party
would have been sung, and the ear
pet baggers of the South would have
packed their goods and stole away.
The Pulaski Citizen has been a
welcome visitor of late. With an
eager eye its pages are scanned to
catch the latest news. We hope
that this presidential problem will
be solved and relieve our minds of
political thoughts for a while at
The spirit of improvement con
tinues to manifest itsell in this com
munity. Mr. J. E. Puryear has
lately weatherboarded his office and
he contemplates having it painted
soon, whi'-h will improve the ap
pearance of his place considerably.
He has also completed one of the
best barns in this community, and
has lightning rods attached which
adds a new feature to the modern
improvements of this neighborhood.
Mr. Will Chapman has contracted
with the carpenters for some addi
tions to his dwelling, which will add
a great deal to bis convenience.
Mr. J. M. Parker is. improving his
farm by building cow sheds and
substituting plank for rail fences,
adding a great deal to the appear
ance of our town. Miss Fannie
Parker of this place has opened a
school at Hebron with good indica
tions for a large attendance. She
is every way calculated to teach the
-oung idea how to develop itself,
and we wish her much success in
this her new vocation. Ma' she
win many golden opinions, thereby
securing a good patronage.
Miss Jennie Johnson, of Rivers'
Station, is spending a few days with
her relatives here.

cit3r now, with threebusiness houses
in full blast. One dry goods house
run by J. S. Williamson, one family
grocery and one drinking saloon,
controled by Lucius Yarbrough, all
seem to be driving a good business.
Dr. J. II. Rogers is also located
there, with a fair prospect to work
into a good practice. May success
It is not ever' horse that does
not scare at a steam locomotive that
can stand music, and for a better
security against walking home at
night, I would suggest that the
3'oung grr.t!onan from Petersburg
should put chain f round his
horse's neck or have him put in the
stable for safe keeping. Our 3'oung
people are contemplating a good
deal of pleasure during the Christ
mas holidays. All are expecting
treats rich and rare, and arrange
ments for social gatherings are be
ing made. -
Mr. S. E Owen of Hardin connt3r
is visiting relatives in this section
now. He is making his arrange
ments to be off to Texas after
Christmas. It is highl3' probable
that one of our fairest 3'oung ladies
will be transported to an adjoining
neighborhood in a short time, if I
am any judge. ,
Owing to the extreme cold weath
er that we have had lately our farm
ers are not all elone sowing wheat
yet, and to all appearance there will
be more sown this year than an3
ever before, and if it does well we
will have plenty of biscuits next

to our farmers this 3'ear, and I hope
it will next. Kcllt.

Well, Mr. Editor, I am glad to
inform 3'ou that our neighborhood
is becoming more interesting.
Since my last, Mr. Thomas F.
Webb, of Leatherwood, accompa
nied b3r an officer, came down and
arrested (?) "iiss Kittie Hardeman
and took her ofT in opeu daj-light,
and I haven t heard of her since.
Our 3oung gentlemen don't like
such encroachments as this, espe

On the 30th ult., at Esq. Reed's,
I had the pleasure of seeing Mr.
Rolland Caufman and Miss M. E.
Bell approach the kj'menial altar
and sign the life-long pledge. The
happy pair have since been rolling
around among friends and relations.
Mr. R. II. Ragsdale returned from
Louisville a few da3's ago, whither
he went with a car load of 6tock.
This is the fifth load he has taken to
that cit3' this fall. He is one of our
enterprising citizens, and I think
his example is worthy of imitation.
A new saloon has just been
opened in our village, and the pro
prietor, Mr. J. M. Dickson, is as
humorous aud obliging as ever.
He is now prepared to heat a man
inside and out.
On last Saturday we had a public
auction at the store of Strong dc
Browning. Mr. C. F. Butler, the
administrator of Browning, dee'd,
13 tmng to close out the business.
There was a splendid crowd out.
but the goods went off very slowly.
It will take another day to get
through with the entire stock.
Mr. J. P. May, Jr., was on hand,
and from the purchases he made a
man would suppose he had some
idea of house-keeping.
A short time ago a negro woman
living in the village took a fit, to
which she was accustomed, and fell
in the fire and was horribly burned,
literally crisping one hand and a
part of her body. She lived but a
dav or two.

The family of our friend C. L.
Stevenson was considerably tlis
turbed last Thursday evening b
the burning of the soot in the chim
ney of the family room. The fam
ily was a supper when the fact was
discovered; and at first was thought
to be the house on fire. Fortu
nately no damage was done, as the
wind was blowing in a direction
which carried the sparks from the
On last Sunda3' night, the 10th,
as Prof. Clark and J. L.' Clift, who
are boarding at Mr. A.M.Wilson's,
were returning to the residence of
the above named gentleman from
Mr. John W. Young's whither the3'
had been to supper as the family
of Mr. Wilson was awav Irom home
they were met 1)3' someone riding
Prof. Clark's horse in the front lot,
when Prof. C. demanded a halt and
enquired who it was. No reply be
ing given, he was again interroga
ted as to who he was. No respopse
being given, the Professor fired up
on the rider, who jumped from the
horse and made a speed3' escape.
A light was also seen in the room
of Messrs. Clark and Clift about
the same time, but was seen no
more after the shooting. It is sup
posed that some one knowing that
the famil' vras absent, had con
cluded that some money might be
obtained b3' pillaging the trunks of
Messrs. Clark and Ciift. Theeloors
leading from the exterior of the
building to Prof. Clark's room were
all found open but nothing missing.
A great deal of moving is going
on about Bethaii3" at present. Wag
ons go by nearly every day. Owing
to the dr' fall renters have got out
their crops and will be prepared by
the 1st of January next to enter
upon the labors of the new year,
provided the war don't interfere be
forehand. Now, Mr. Editor, if a
war does come up what will we poor
women do? and especially those who
are now making up their navT3' blues,
cardinal reds, 1113-rtle greens, &c, in
anticipation of getting married? for

Naomi Tilden is in Bethany now, so
Brigadier-General Whorton says,
and he has a right to know, for he
selected that name for the bab3T

marr3 We have known four or
five 3"oung ladies to be up the coun
tr3' all the week neaidy, fixing up
for the wedding eloings, but we
never helped them narry stitch. So
I guess 3rou'll think I'm selfish, but
they never asked K13' assistance,
and of course the law presumes that
it is a "w3'gumphigatcd act" to help
when 3'ou are not asked. Sa3r,
folks, don't forget ua when you
send around 3-our little papers!
Our friend M. D., who has been
down with us a day or two this
week, sa3's that the reason women

we conclude that we are a mule or
want to be we expect to call on him
for his splendid pair of ears.

The people of our village were
much excited over the burning of
the woods last Tuesday night. The
fire got out from hunters.
There are still some improve
ments going on, and much stealing.
There have been six negroes and
two white boys taken to jail from
this district in less than two months
the former for stealing cotton
from Capt. Eph. Gordon who says
he has lost 3 or 4 bales this fall.
The oldest rat in the barn was
caught last week, charged with
stealing 2 bushels of wheat. He
says he didn't get that much, as
one-fourth was smut.
Some of our farmers are still
sowing wheat. They seem to think
it pays as well as cotton.

We learn that Capt. Jno. S.
Wilkes, of Pulaski, is an aspiran
to the ofUce of Secretary of State.
Capt. Wilkes is a perfect gentle
man in the true sense of the word,
and as a business man has scarcely
an equal. We commend him to our
members elect to the General As
sembly and buspeak for him a fav
orable consideration. Lawrenceburg
-Capt. Wilkes is know n to all the
old members and Senators ia the
Tennessee Legislature, and b3' man3'
of the new ones, to "be one of the
best, most accurate, most industri
ous, and accammodating officials
the State ever had. There can be
no question of his worthiness nor
of his eQicicac3'. The Legislature
could not elect a better man if ho
A party of Columbians paid a fly
ingvisit to our beautiful neighboring
town, Pulaski, and came back very
much pleased. They are unstinted
in praise of the beauty and attract
iveness of the ladies and hospitali
ty and kindness of the gentlemen.
The town is quite handsomely situ
ated, contains many splendid jmd
substantial business houses and el
egant and palatial residences. The
Alamo House, at which they stop
ped, is well kept, tables supplied
with the best the land affords, and
presided over by clever and accom
modating gentlemen. Altogether,
Pulaski presents the appearance of
being a town of solid, substantial
wealth, as the people do of being
cultivated and refined. One of the
most beautiful residences in the
city 13 that of Judge II. 31.

Democrats before the Louisiana
Returning Board, several weeks ago,

the infamous Wells and Anderson

and West the latter being the bus
iness portion, and the former the
angelic portion. The West End
contains the Citizek, one of the
neatest printed and spiciest and
ablest edited of the county week
