The monthly meeting of the
Warren Cdunty Farmers' and Labo
rers' I'nion was held here last Friday
and Saturday, large crowds being in
attendance both days. The Union
was addressed Saturday by their State
lecturer, Mr. R. W. Tucker of Nash
ville. The enterprising firm of J. C.

page today. Handling only special

giving their customers the advantage
of better sellections. You will find
their stock fully up to the claims of
their advertisement in every particu
lar. -The Falcon Roller Mill Co., has
been shut down for about two weeks
for want of wheat to grind, having
exhausted the supply in this county,
and the price of this great staple not
justifying them in shipping from
elsewhere. We wero surprised to
learn from Mr. Walling that this
county does not raise as much wheat
as it consumes. The farmers as a
class will never prosper under such a
condition of tilings as this, no matter
if they have a Farmers' and Labor
ers' Union for every square mile of
territory in the couuty, and elect
every officer from President down to
constable. Wheat is now worth 85
cents per bushel here, and at this
price, or even a less figure, it can be
made a profitable crop In this county.
It won't pay to raise it as long as
farmers are content with from six to
ten bushels to the acre, but the lands
of this county can be made to pro
duce from 20 to 35 bushels per acre.
Old and experienced millers say that
what are known as the barren lands
of this county produce the finest
Quality ot wheat that is grown in the
United State. It only remains then
for the farmers to increase the quan
tity. This can be done if the farmers
will read, think and work to that
end. Let them all resolve to make
nt least three stalks of wheat grow
next year where two grow this. The
farmers of Warren county should be
ashamed to have it said that they do
not feed their own county.

The store of J. W. Gray & Co.
East Main Street, was robbed of fn
or twelve dollars worth of goods last
Monday night, an enterance being
made through one of the back win
dows. On Tuesday a negro boy
named Charley Mercer was arrested
and confined in the calaboose for
throwing rocks on the streets. Mr.
Gray had a suspicion that this boy
knew something about the robbery,
so he went to the calaboose and "in
terviewed" him, when he owned up
that he was engaged in it, and im
plicated a negro named Crum Scott
as his partner in it. Scott was then
arrested, and they were both given a
preliminary trial before ! Esq. J. E.
Jones, who sent them to jail (in de
fault of bond), to await the next
