Now that the election is over, we can
look at it calmly. Two of the cleverest men
lu the county, Lip-icouih and Alexander,
run for Sheriff, and it speaks w ell for them
that they remained on friendly terms with
each other throughout I he excit ing contest.
Mr. Alexander had made a good Sheriff, and
hail been so kind lo everybody that every
Isidy liked liim. Besides, lie had for Jailor
WK)-J D. Davis, one of tlie strongest men in
the county, who made an unusually good
ollicer. Mr. Lipscomb s as go.nl a man, and
as popular, asany iu the county his oppo
nents acknowledged that absolutely noth

Argus-eyed Joe Irvine admitted this. He
was tlie nominee of the I K'ln. s ialic party,
and wa-s beaten in a Democratic county.
There were several causes the preiudice
in favor of giving a Sheriff two terms, ami
the prejudice against convention. There is
a strong feeling against lieiug controlled by
jwililics in elections for Sheriir; it is urged
thai there is no political significance lu the
selection of a Sheriil that lh best man
should be elected. j

Near the spring at which Benjamin
Vilke settled, passed a trail leaatng irom

camping ground used by Indians. On the

no Indians lived in many miles of this

We know the custom of the tribes was to
consider the young men only warriors, til
they had earned the title brave by taking a
scalp from the whites. The custom, too,
was to hold a scalp dance, on the return of a

am informed, only three Kevolutionary

mountain, where the whole of tlie British
command was surrounded, aud captured

gaged In other battles. Kobert Caruthers,

fought in the same battle of King's moun

Mills; and during another battle, a cavalry
man would have split his head open, but
he saved himself by dodging under the
horse's neck. The point of ihe sword struck
his head, but entered the horse's neck, near

Dear Brothers ami Sisters of l?ic order of Good
Templars of Maury County: J
Remember that our Grand Lodge will con
vene in Nashville on Tuesday, the 17th day
of October next. And remember, Good
Templars of Maury County, that Maury
County has the Grand Worthy Chief Tem
plar and Grand Worthy Vice Templar of
the State, aud the Grand Lodge will expect
and demand of that we appreciate and rec
ognize the high honor by a magnificent dis
play of our strength and power.
The high polit ical excitement iu which
the country is at present engaged, and tlie
parti .an feelings that may be engendered
render it necessary that we should redouble
our vigilance and overlook our brothe1-
who may be disposed to grow
and to wauder from .Urf.ewarm
Sneak a kind ' peaceful abode,
of v'"- ord to them. Say nothing
. iiiics, and try and bring them back to
our happy lodge rooms. Aud, by all and
very means, Keep up your ri-guiar nieet
mrs. and let us have the happy time we
have heretofore enjoyed. We feel that a
crisis has arrived, and we must bestir our
selves lest we be left behind. Let us ever
keep iu view ine nooie precepi oi our onier.
W hatsoever ye would nave others snoum
do unto you, do you even so unto them,"
and lei eacu one oi us rememuer uuii we
have a "mission to perform which none on
earth but ourselves can fill," and what we
want now Is action, action, action, "and in
saving others we save ourselves." Great,
luesuniaoie is tne goou wuicii me organisa
tion has effected. A glorious work is yet
beloreus. Long may It live; the trumpet of
temperance. This is tlie end for which we
labor, T his is me end uear aiiKe to numan
Hv aud Christianity. For this end let us all
labor, each in the way which to him seems
wisest and oesi. Keep in minu mat we
have enlisted, not for a summer campaign
but for the war. Aud we cannot expect to
lay aside our arms until death gives us our
papers of discharge from all the duties and
conflicts of life.
"Do not then sit idly waiting
For some greater deed to do:
Speak the word that cure the waiting;
Look the look that lifts the soul;
Go and toil in any vineyard,
Do not fear to.do.or dare;
If you seek a field of labor,
You can find it anywhere."
We know that we are engaged in the
grandest and noblest warfare that ever call
ed true men and women together in coun
cil. Many lodges are nara ai worn, anu are
doing all that could be expected of them, but
some have grown a little lukewarm. Broth
ers! wake mi! vou can do mod. Remember
thai every man thai you convert irom me
error of his way, aud get to join our cause,
that a bright star will added to your crown
in the life to come. Go to work! JJO your
duty, and all will yet be well. Let us show
the Giand Lodge that we appreciate tlie
compliment she has paid us, and we feel
justly proud of her selection. Brother Bul-
iock anu oisier Joyce nave iiueu, men
places well, and have reflected honor ou the
cause. Now, let each lodge rememoer io
send her delegates to the next session of the
Grand Lodge, aud remember the time (Oct.
17, 1876.) We have now sixteen hslges lu
the county, and we want a good delegation
and good report from every lodge Send
your best and ablest representatives. The
llailroad has heretofore furnished tickets to
Nashville at hall price. Tiel eacu louge
have its written report, approved by W. C
T. aud W. S., aud also your credentials. We
want a grand report and a grand rauy mini
old Maury, the banner couuty, at the next
session of the Grand ixxige.
