teresting to all those farmers who de
sire to make wheat culture a success.
We are frequently asked whether
Homestead Fertilizer will pay on
wheat, and how much per acre, and
how to apply it. Mr. Ramsey has
been using it for a number of years,
as well as many of his neighbors,
with suecess,and while he'believes it

the land before seeding. Mr. Ramsey
is a practical farmer, anu nis com

suggestions to the wheat grower.

i- : Natural Gas. ,
A movement is now on foot to sup
ply.McMinnville with natural gas for
fuel. Tho gas well near the Beershe
ba ford, on land now . owned by
Messrs. llouchin & Biles, it is thought
will furnish an abundant supply.
This well was bored just, after the
war, in searching for oil,, but when
gas was struck the well was plugged,
and remains so to the present time.
Messrs. llouchin & Biles have leased
the well to a party who has applied
to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen
for a franchise to lay pipes through
the streets. As soon as thisis secured
an expert from Pennsylvania will be
employed to reopen and test the well,
and if found to give an adequate sup
ply of gas, the pipes will be laid at
once. This will not only give our
people a cheap and superior fuel lor
domestic purposes, but will encour
age the location of manufacturing in
dustries here. We hope the bpard
will grant the franchise on the most
favorable terms withoutdelay. Every
enterprise which will add to Mc
Minnville's prosperity should be
given the fullest encouragement, and
if this well is opened McMinnville
will bo the first Tennessee town to
utilize natural gas.

Death of Mr. S. F. Pennebaker.
Mr. Samuel F. Pennebaker died at
the home of his , uncle, Mr. W.' P.
Faulkner, near this place, at 9:30
o'clock Wednesday night, August
10th. Mr. Pennebaker had been a
sufferer from consumption for several
years, and had been confined to his
room at Mr. Faulkner's calmly and
patiently awaiting his end for about
two months. The greater part of the
last two years of his life were spent
in traveling from place to place, in
Colorado, Florida, Texas and other
states, seeking relief from the de
structive influences of disease, and it
seems like a special providential
guidance that brought him back to
his old home to spend the final weeks
of his life under the kindly adminis
trations of loving friends and kindred
lie fully realized a month or more
ago that he was fast approaching
death, and he looked to the end with
out fear or dread. He was fully con
sciousand talked calmly to those who
surrounded his bedside up to within
five minutes of his final dissolution,
and he passed peacefully into the
portals of death without a struggle or

to the grave by a large concourse of
sorrowing friends and relatives. The

of Mr. Faulkner. He gathered many
warm friends around him during his
life, who will revere and cherish his
memory till they join him in the
LIST OF LETTERS
M. B. Toney, Esq., Agent of the
Merchants Dispatch fast freight line,
Nashville, came up last Tuesday
to attend the marriage', Wednesday
of Mr. Turner of Nashville, to Miss
Sallie Myers of this place. While
here Mr. Toney met a number of the
Masonic Fraternity and explained to
them his purpose of establishing a
Masonic "Widows' and Orphans'
Home in Tennessee, of which he4s
President. The institution will be
for the care of destitute Widows and
Orphans of worthy deceased Masons;
emphatically an Institution of chari
ty. According to the by-laws, no
officer or person connected with the
institution can receive compensation
for his services. The aim of the offi
cers and directors is to raise $50,000,
principally from certificates of life
membership, $25 each. From an
acquaintance of several years with
Mr. Toney, we have found him a
good business man, a gentleman of in
tegrity, worthy, we think, of the con
fidence of the Masonic fraternity of
Tennessee. We heartily commend
him and his enterprise, the Masonic
Widows' and Orphans' Home, to the
favorable consideration of all Mason
ic Lodges and Free Masons through
out the State.
