The little park in the center of
the town of McMinnville would be
"a thing of beauty and a joy forever"
if it was only protected from the rav
ages of the town hog. If the people
of McMinnville will have hogs on
the streets, some provision should be
made to at least keep them out of the
park. If the corporation ha3 no offi
cial whose duty it Is to look after this
matter, it should be made somebody's
duty. And it should be somebody's
duty to see that the gates are always
kept in good repair.
Some months ago we suggested
that a memorial association be form
ed to look after the matter of beauti
fying and keeping in order our ceme

every inhabitant of the place should

tery needs attention, and it should be
given some better name than merely
'the new cemetery." We hope
those who have friends and relatives
buried there will take hold of the
matter this spring and form the asso

The Fluent Photographic Work How
Produced In McMinnville.
Some soven or eight years ago
when Mr. W. S. Lively went to tlu
expense of adding a second story to a
building then used by his father as a
furniture store for a photograph gal
lery, many thought he was making a
very foolish investment, but the ven
ture has proven a good one, and his
efforts have been crowned with suc
cess. He did first-class work from
the start, and has kept pace with
every improvement in the manner of
producing, the best photographic
work. He has recently added to his
gallery a large lot of new scenery and
accessories, and a new camera, the
finest made by the American Optical
Co., by which he is enabled to make
photographs as large as Hxl7 inches
in size. He is enabled with this in
strument, to produce several attract-
ve styles of pictures which he nev
er made before, also to copy and en-
arge old pictures to the best advan
tage. It is one of the best instru
ments made for getting fine views of
buildings, natural scenery, etc. The
work which Mr. Lively turns out is
equal in every respect to that of the
best city galleries, and this fact is se
curing for him not only a good run
of local custom, but people from all of
the surrounding counties are now
having work done by him in prefer
ence to Nashville and other cities.
Ie has reduced the prices on all large
size pictures. It always gives us
pleasure to note the success of any
kind of business in McMinnville, and
commend those so highly deserving
of it as is Mr. Lively.
Mr. Blair' sheath :
Dr. Stainback has received a tele
gram from Dr. A. B. Ramsey, dated
at Philadelphia, East Tennessee, an
nouncing that his mother-in-la'A',Mrs.
Blair, had died at 5 o'clock Wednes
day evening, the 12th inst. Mrs.
Blair had been seriously ill for sever
al weeks, and while the news was
not unexpected it was none the less
sad to her numerous friends here.
Dr. Ramsey and wife have the war
mest sympathy of all their acquaint
ances here in their sad lass.
A County Fair.
No county in the State is more fa
vorably located than Warren for the
succe&sful maintenance of a well con
ducted county fair. Our own county
within itself would give such an en
terprise a liberal support, and by its
central location in a tier of counties
without fairs, would draw large pa
tronage from all of them. We renew
the suggestion made some months
ago to the Farmers' Alliance, or Far
mers' and Laborers' Union as we be
lieve it is now, to take hold of this
matter. If this organization will
take the matter in hand and push it,
they can succeed, and will thus estab
lish an institution that will benefit
every fanner in the county. The
merchants and business men of all
classes all over the county will aid
the cause liberally if the farmers will
take the lead. It is an institution
which naturally should be conducted
and controlled by the farmers.
