BEAUTIFUL STYLES IN
The finest piano that money and skill can
produce, extra massive case, extra finely fin
ished; made only in the finest fancy figured
burl walnut and finely figured mahogany or
quarter sawed oak; double veneered inside
and out, is what the National Baptist Pub
lishing Board offers in their many styles of
pianos. Such as styles 5, 6, 10, 12 and 14.
The tone of these instruments is unexcelled
for its exquisite quality.
THE ARTIST UPRIGHT
are pre-eminent. The tone is clear, liquid,
mellow and well sustained and affords in all
the registers a harmony clear and equal, and
of that sympathetic nature which, under the
hands of an artist, arouses the enthusiasm of
the listener. The prices and terms are with
in reach of all.

The passing of the last Legislature
has left a peculiar effect on this place.
it seems that after a successful cam
paign of making an extremely dry
town, and changing the mode of se
lecting aldermen from each ward to
the city-at-large, another law has
spurred the peace officials to seek out
tnose designated as vagrants and
cause them to appear before justices of
peace for Judgment A number of
colored vagrants has been fined, but
it remains to be seen whether in the
entire population of Clarksville, there
will be any vagrants other than col
ored. While the law exempts persons
belonging to labor unions on a strike,
no provision is made for the Derson
who refuses the munificent salarv of
$1.00 to $2.00 a week for labor that
twice the amount is hardly a sufficient
The engineering department is
causing the city to put on metropoli
tan airs. Concrete pavements and gut
tering are much in evidence, and a
few streets of the famous Ninth ward
are being repaired aad improved. If
only these streets could have side
walks made from the bricks that are
giving place to the concrete pave
ments, no doubt the neighborhood
would rise up and say blessed.
