Until- an uidividual or a community
Imes some valuable and highly prized
object, as one of its most-loved and
useful citizens, or their good health,
do they become aware of the great
calamity which "has ' befallen them.
This" city of Milan can and does boast
of wing the most healthy place in all
.Weat Tennessee. AU true enough;
Milan w healthy and has been ; but is
it certain it always will be? Let's
see. When this city stood in the
natural forest or M field, with ten to
twenty-five inhabitants, (which was a
very few years ago,) there was no
cause for ill health i. c., no local
cause -consequently good health. But
now we must remember that we have
2000 to 2500 inhabitaaats and. as a
natural consequence, manyaaaxe local
eauses for disease; and, "feat being the
case, it behooves ear City Fathers to
look to the health of our people.
There are many places in this town
that are not only detrimental to health,
but stand inviting disease daily. We
pass them and say it is no business of
ours : the Board should look after it.
All true, they should; but do they?
No, sir Milan is healthy. But how
long will it be healthy with the vast
amount of filth a&d decaying animal
and vegetable matter that is to be
seen and smelled on some o wx attain
streets? City Fathers, wake .sup!
Why wait till the horse is gonerbefore
you lock the door? Last summer,
when some ef cur neighbors were
scourged with cholera, we trembled,
and said, " Let clean up this town ;
the cholera is 6ut and may catcfclus."
There is as much if not more danger
now, or we have more intimations of
it. Men are most generally responsi
ble for their own ill health and conse
So, city authorities and citizens, all,
let s clean this town up from one de
te the other, and, prepare to meet any
disease that may attack us do ting the
hot months that are now upon us,
thereby keeping Milan in tbe iuturc,
as in the past, the most healthy town
in West Tennessee. If we d not,
when trouble comes, we will have .to
say, "We did not watch and 'keep
our lamps trimmed and burning.'"

JEvausville Journal.of July 9th. The
article was -written by the chief editor
of that paper, who has just returned
from a trip to Leaven worth City, Ks.,
which place he visited for the purpose
df looking into the workings of the
Kansas Central Narrow Gauge R. R.
And, although he left home prejudiced
against narrow -gauge j-aHroads, you
will see that he returns thoroughly
converted to the new system. As it
is the intention df fhe Board of Di
rectors of the Evaneville, Jackson .A
New Orleans Railroad ta cuistmct
their line on that plan, and as our
people arc deeply .interested in the
enterprise, I think it important to
have the views of tine so well posted
on that subject placed before them.
I have been investigating the subject
of .narrow , gauge railroads to some
extent for several years, and am hearty
in my approval of every word the
editor says on that subject.
E. A." Collins.
Mian, July 15, 87.
An article on the second page, cop
ied from thcJa&swi (Tena) Whig
and Tribune, shows that the interest
in thoi railroad from that point to
Evansville is not diminish ins: tin the',
least, d There is o daubt that the
road Cnrf be' finished from here to
Jackson in Jess than Awo years if the
people on the -line display the liberal
ity and energy the merits of the great
enterj,r5 deserve. There is also i:o
doubt that the benefit the country
would derive from a aiacrw gauge
roatl would be far greater than the
burdens' the people would liave to bear
in subscribing for its construction.
The facility for moving produce afford
ed by narrow gauge roads, and tbtir
reasonable rates for transportation,
are such as to make them very popu
lar with all classes of people. From
all that we can leant, they are em
phatically the people's roads, and are
not'giVeli up to express companies and
fiist freight lines, which generally
jaanage to convert the dividewls of
tocLholders into revenues for inside
corponatioas. In our judgment the
construction of the narrow-gauge
.road would tkt niti to Jve the
transportation problem to which the
grangers of Kentucky and other States
have dew ted so .much time and at
tention. At least such is claimed i
lie the experience of communities
where narrow-gauge roads have bven
in opeartioa SmaJJ artiolus pro
duce, such as baAets of eggs and but
ter, and all classes of vegetables, are
bv these roadsarToreded market falcili-
ties which greatly benefit loth the
farmers and comsumers in the towns.

ion that were the Lake Erie, Evans
ville and Southwestern lfculroad eira-
vtirted into anarrtny gauge roatl ami
imTftedEatftSy einph;ted through the
counties of Warnici and J)cbios, and
ruii as economically and prudently as
other roads of that character are
managed, that the saving in the price
of fruit and vegetables alone, in two
or three years, would more than re
pay our city for all the money con
tributed to aidin its construction.
Great trunk lrrics.are.well enough in
their place, but whatKvunsville most
wants is railroads which wiJl nffurd
facilities for getting to rather thancow
the city. That roads, of the kind in
contemplation from our city to Jack
sont will afford such facilities is clear
ly proven, we think, by the practical
operation - of such roads at other
points. They are managed with
ease and economy, and can afford to
transport freight and passengers at
lower rates than broad gauge roads,
and, not fating blinded by an insane
passion fir through freight anil pass
engers, it is to their interest to cultivate
and develope local travel and traffic.
Any one can see that a road guided
by this policy can not pass through
any section of country in the valley
of the lower Ohio without developing
it rapidly, and in proportion as the
country is improved, the cities tvI1
increase in commerce and prosperity.
We hope that the friend of the
Jackson road, both in Kentucky and
Tennessee, will immediately take steps
to aid ia its construction.
