school, was not as largely attended
as It was hoped it would be, but suf
ficient Interest was manifested to in
HUre the success of the enterprise if
diligently followed up, With lens
than fifty men present, and not half
of them subscribing, something over
thirteen hundred dollars in subscrip
tions was securred. Messrs. - It. M.
Reams, 0. T. Thurman, A. ; II.
Faulkner, W. S. Lively und J. II.
Sherrill, were appointed a committee
to solicit subscriptions, and Messrs.
V. V. Whitson, J. S. Barton, C O.
IJlack, M. D. Small man and Frank
Spurlock were appointed a commit
tee to examine into the status of the
lion Lomond College property, and
report upon its availability; for the
purpose of the proposed school.
Another meeting was called to as
semble at the Courthouse tonight
(Friday), to further consider the mat
ter. " ' : ' 1
It Is hoped that, this meeting will
be more largely attended than the
last, and that more interest and en
thusiasm will be manifested.
A high grude male school, with
two hundred or more students in at
tendance, is easily within the reach
of McMinnville. It will not. require
a large subscription from any one in
dividual if all will help as they should
and aiv able to do.
Every business man, of whatever
occupation, and every property own
er, will be largely benefitted by the
establishment of such a school here.
Some more definite plans of action
will probably be submitted to the
meeting tonight. Let everybody
come out and hear them.

' Quite a Variety.
On the Smlthville and Lebanon
urnpike, between Liberty and Alex-
andria, there is a piece of woodland,
containing about one and a half acres
upon which there is a natural growth
of a greater variety of trees than per-
laps can be found upon any other
piece of ground of equal size in the
United States. The acre and a half
contains hickory, walnut, cedar, ash,
dogwood, plum, thorn, grapevine,
elm, poplar, Iron wood, beech, oak,
mulberry, lynn, locust, hackberry,
sweet gum, black gum, sasafras,
blatjj? and red haw, buckeye, etc. In
fact, It has one hundred different
kinds of timber growing on its some
what sandy soil. It is quite a curi
osity to pass through and examine
this unusual sight.
We commend the letter of "Ob
server" in this issue to the thought
ful consideration of every member of
the Warren County Court. It is a
forceful presentation of the bridge
question. It Is a crying shame that
this county has no bridges. The
county is out of debt and amply
able to build the bridges, and we be
lieve a majority of the people of the
county will cheerfully submit to
what little increased taxation would
be necessary ior the purpose. War
ren county is behind every single one
of its neighbors In this respect. We
believe many members of the Couu
ty Court are sincere In believing that
they are conserving the best interests
of their constituents in refusing to
impose taxes on them for this pur
pose, but the Views of the citizens of
any county having bridges prove
most conclusively that such a posi
tion is untenable. Good bridges and
good roads add many times their
cost to the value of the farms of any
county. Cumberland county is re
garded by the people of Warren as a
little backwoods mountain county,
and yet from the report of its Chair
man to the January term of the
County Court, we quote us follows
"There have been eight new bridges
completed during the year. The
general ouuook oi me county was
never before so brilliant. The taxa
ble property has increased to double
the amount in the past three years."
If Cumberland county can build
eight bridges in one year, Warren
certainly snoulu buuu one a year
until every important crossing in the
county is spanned by a bridge.
A Pubttr Ilutldtno for MeMlnnvllle
Col. Kd J. Wood, postmaster, and
Col. Hugh J. Brady, Deputy Inter
nal Revenue Collector, at this place,
with other revenue officials here,
have for several weeks been getting
the necessary data to make applica
tion to Congress for an appropriation
to erect a public building at McMinn
ville. The mouey . order and post
office business of McMinnville
amounts to over $25,000 per annum,
The office of the Deputy Collector of
the 4th Division of the 5th Revenue
District of Tennessee, is located here,
and there is collected and reported
for collection through this office over
$250,000 of Internal revenueannually,
and a large number of cases are tried
here before the U. S. Commissioner's
court. This is the center of the larg'
est apple brandy producing district
in the United States. The amount
of government business done here
amply justifies an appropriation of
$10,000 or $50,000 for a public build
ing. In addition to this, the con
congressional library of the Third
Congressional District is here, and a
building for the safe keeping of the
many valuable volumes should be
lion. II. Clay Evans, the Congess
man for this District, has written
Postmaster Wood that he will do all
he can to secure the appropriation.
If Mr. Evans will make good this
promise, we believe the appropria
tion will be secured and the building
erected. ' -

To the Mayor and Aldermen of
For the month of Feb. the health
of our town continues good. Except
for the existence of La Grippe, or In
fluenza, I could have reported an
unusually healthy month, but we
have had a few cases of that disease
during the month. No new cases
reported for the last few days, only
one death to report for this month,
and two births.

, . . Chm'n Board of Health.
The Board of Health would respect
fully submit the following from the
State Board of Health Bulletin for
February, and urge prompt action in
the matter of scavenger work on the
part of every citizen of McMinnville :
WORK EOR MARCH AND Al'RlU
The especial attention of our; town
and city officials is directed to the fact
that the best months for scavengerlng
and cleaning up work are March and
Every one understands that during
the hot summer months the upturn
ing of polluted 6oil should by all
means be avoided. Some of the best
authorities on epidemics have traced
very serious outbreaks to this cause ;
not only in hot climates, but in far
northern localities where the sum
mers, though brief, are torrid in tem
perature. Everybody in our part of
the world understands that the emp
tying of foul pits and cess-pools, etcM
should receive extra care in the hot
weather of July, August and Septem
ber. In many places that kind of
work must go on at all seasons, but
in the months just mentioned ex
treme care in resjiect to disinfection
should be exercised so as to prevent
the diffusion of noxious gases.
Every one knows that during the
winter premises become more or less
foul ; every one also knows that this
foulness should be removed before
the heat of summer comes on, hence,
It is plain that March and April are
the months for the most effective and
most reeded sanitary work.
The authorities in our towns and
cities should, if necessary, put on ex
tra hands. Not a filthy street nor al
ley should be seen by the first of May.
Every jail, court-house, eity hall,
school-house, church and other pub
lic building at that date should also
be a model of sanitation.
And though sanitation by official
action is of vital importance to the
health of each community in Tennes
see, not less so is individual action by
each housekeeper. Every back yard
should be thoroughly scavengered,
every cellar well cleaLed and venti
lated, every pi-ivy emptied and disin
fected, and where water closets are
used, the connections examined and
These details have been urged up
on the people of Tennessee oft and
again during the past twelve years
by the State Board of Health, but are
just as much needed now as ever.
Certainly this is no time for care
lessness. We are warned by the re
markable atmospheric conditions
prevailing throughout our country
during the present winter, by the
universal prevalence of the pan-epidemicinfluenzaand
by the widely
published opinion of one of the most
distinguished European scientists
Prof. Zdekaur.ofSt. Petersburg, who
says : "The present epidemic is the
forerunner of the cholera that is
ragingin Persia and ivlesopotamiaand
which is approaching Europe." Now
while we may not concur in this view,
yet it unquestionably is the part of
wisdom to make ready for the possi
bilities of the near future, come they
under whatever form or name they
