7 SOUTHERN STANDARD---MCMINNVILLE. TENNESSEE. A 1UK1) AN AUGUST 1890
. ON BEN LOMOND'S CREST.
Some enthusiastic correspondent,
writing in last Suuday'a Nashvillo
American, pay9 a well deserved trib
ute to Ben Lomoud, as follows :
McMinnville, Aug. 15. Ben Lo
mond rears his stately head 1,000 feet
above the beautiful old town of Mc
Minnville. The drive up the moun
tain is quite easy and pleasant. The
greater, part is through thick wood
lands, therefore the glorious view,
-een from the top, bursts upon us
with tenfold pleasure, having caught
no glimpso of it by the wayside.
Stretching for many a mile are love
ly valleys bordering on Barren Fork
and Collins river. Away up, as far
as eye can sec, are these shining wa
ters; aiid off in the distance, the
mountain chain standing like grim
sentinels to guard the peaceful val
leys. The atmosphere is so pure it
seems to, invigorate each heartbeat,
and ' the whole being is moved by
mysterious agencies to noble aspira
tions and holy feeling.
Ben Lomond lias been purchased
by a company of wide-awake gentle
men of McMinnvillc, who propose
building a hotel and cottages and
fully developing its resources for a
delightful summer home. There are
already two comfortable h:mes up
there, with wide-open, hospitable
doors, where many visitors and
friends have been royally entertained.
Dr. J. B. Ititchey's home deserves
especial mention. It is a beautiful
cottage of ten rooms, where to enter
is to feel at home. This cottage is
situated just at the top of Ben Lo
mond, where the sun throws light on
its white walls which give itasilvery
appearance, giving rise to its musi
cal name, "Silver Top."
The water is clear, cold freestone
There are many places ot interest on
the mountain. The lone rock and
the narrows attract many visitors
who express both pleasure and satis
faction by drives or walks to eKher
place. The views from the lone rock
of the farm lands, of McMinnville,
Nicholson Springs and other point3
are very tine.
A beautiful drive of two miles
brings you to the narrows. There
the mountain comes to a point, and
we see Beersheba and other moun
tains much nearer than any other
place. We returned to Silver Top
just as the suu was saying good night,
while the whole valley was lit up by
beams of golden, purple and rosy
hues, causing all to exclaim that not
even Italy's: skies nor views on the
Ithine could be fairer than those of
our native land.
At dawn the fleecy clouds render
the scene almost heavenly, for the
lloating appearance of these misty
beauties seem like angelic hosts, hov
nring o'er and keeping watch of loved
ones on earth. Near this peacefu
scene a memory comes to us of happy
days spent at "Forest Home," with
the gifted and loved, Mrs. L. Vir
ginia French. Bnt now
Every wave of the forest leaf
Seems to breathe a si'h of grief
For her, the idol of the old home nest,
Who dwells with God in blessed rest.
In parting, Ben Lomond, ere I siy good
Let me picture tliv lieauticH for IIIH AMEKl
Lii the words cf Alabama's grand old son,
For sweeter words there lire none :
"Xo lovelier land the prophet viewed
When on the sacred mount he Ntood,
And saw below transcendent shine
The hills and groves of Palestine !"
For Your Stomach's Sake.
"Take n little wine for your stomach's
sake," is a celebrated piece of advice.
''Tak a little t'e-ru-na for your stomach's
sike," is a saying that bids fair to become
enually famous. The stomach is at once a
most delicate and a most abused organ and,
between its delicacy and its abuse, it is no
wonder that it is constantly giving its owner
trouble. There is no medicine that will help
the stomach so promptly aud so effectively
as Pe ru-na. It actions is very simple, and
it leaves no bad effects whatever. Especially
in summer time is it a valuable remedy to
have at hand. For hot weather easily affects
the stomach, and any little imprudence in
eating or disorder of the system deranges it.
Then it is that IVru-ua will show itself to
le just what is claimed to be a general
Tonic and a corrector of Stomach Troubles.

It was under a plank of. the great

"If folks save only a little every
year, they'll nave money to spend
when they are old, papa says. So
Ml not eat all of my nuts right up,
but keep some for the next winter,"
said Ray, sagely.'
So he and the squirrels worked to
gether through the brilliant autumn
weather, lie was as busy as they,
and hoarded his winter store as care-
ully, so that when the crimson gold
eaves turned to brown his bank was
full. ' - -
Every day he went to peep into it
until he went with mamma to visit
at grandpa's. They stayed two weeks
and what a long time it was to the
ittle boy with a bank to look after?

their bank is under that old pine tree

And there it was! Under the great

Some men are as bad as chipmonks,
you know. I b'lieve the best way is

can, 'stead of putting lots of money
in the bank to lose, or to be quarrel

Wise little Ray!

A Boiling Lake in Nevada.
Virginia (Nev.) Enterprise.
Recently an intern has been going
the rounds in regard to a boiling
lake near Lassen's, Colforniu. It is
not generally known, but v have
in Nevada a similar boiling lake.
It is situated at the eastern base of
the first large mountain ranges east
of the Sink of Carson. It lies on the
edge of an immense desert a desert
so large and scorching that in sum
mer the Indians never attempt to
cross it except at night, and even
then they always go provided ' with
a large supply of water. On three
sides of the lake are rocks two or
tree hundred feet high, which are
perfectly bare and are burned to
deep brick red. The area of the lake is
about two acres. Though steam is
constantly raising from the water,
the whole surface of the lake does not
boil. The agitation boiling is
confined to the great springs which
burst up in at several points.
The springs force columns of
water from a foot to two or three
feet in diameter to a height of over
twenty inches above the'general sur
face of the lake, causing a loud rip
pling sound and considerable local
commotion. The water of the whole
lake is doubtless boiling hot, though
not seen to boil, for a brook flowing
from it down into the sands of the
desert sends up acloud of steam for a
distance of several hundred yards.
About a mile from the lake is a great
deposit of sulphur, running through
which are streaks of pure alum, from
two to six inches wide.

That man has abused his trust and
carried his dictatorial policy a step
too far. The Republican party has
had enough of Mr. Iteed, unless
he changes his front, aud that quick

ent exalted position, he will heed the
murmuring of the discontent that
must-soon become the roar of muti
