Memory hells are rinuins softly,
sweet their tones tonight,
As the twinkling stars above us shed a ra

When the wky was full of rainboys, and my
pathway full of flower.
Halcyon days, when hearts are brightest.

With u mystic power entices from the
realms of joy and light,
very star that beams with lustre, is a
bright spot in life's way-
Long forgotten, now remembered, as the

Every bird that chiri a night song, is a
voice long hushed anil still,
And the breezes gently sighing, seem one
long bewildering trill
In the music years have silenced, and it's

When the stars are o'er us whispering to the
dew drops at our feet.
Were our natures freer, purer, we could
hear the moon beams fall
On the tlowers God in kindness, gives to

And we sit in peace and quiet, almost

Waiting for the "Come up higher," catching
strains divinely sweet.
From that shore beyond whose borders all

Visions of a crown immortal waiting for the
Will with radiant splendor glisten, like the
stars above us now.

IS'.iii, aged HO years, 10 months and o
days. J larry was one of the brightest
boys in every way, honest, truthful
affectionate, and a perfect gentleman
in every way.
His parents moved from Nebraska
to Tennessee a few years ago, hoping
that a change in climate would be
beneficial to him. Hut death claims
its victim in every clime. During his
illness and after Harry was confined
to his room and bed, he manifested
the most patient submission, al
ways kind to those about him, always
cheerful and hopeful.
He passed away peacefully without
a struggle. A father, mother, broth
f r, and sister mourn his absence.
The funeral service took place Sun
day afternoon, Aug. 3, at the resi

Walling and A. I). Phillips, and he
was laid to rest in the new cemetery

that a large hotel on Ren Lomond,

While we consider hogs at large
upon the streets about the greatest
nuisance any town can be afflicted
with, we cannot countenance the
cruelty some parties are practicing on
these dumb brutes around town. A
number of hogs have been very bad

been similarly treated. It is a repre

there is no law to prevent these
things, or punish him. If any citi

citizen in McMinnville, and we are
for protecting him in his rights
until public opinion reverses the
order of things, and the city counci
is prevailed upon to give citizens a

else curtail some of the hog's priv

variegated light of many Chinese

that charm and gladness to the eve

W. N. Mitchell,
The Colored City School.
At a mass meeting of the colored
people of McMinnville held in the A.
M. E. Church last Monday night,call-
ed by the Board of Education to con
sider the interests of the colored city
school, the following resolutions were
offered and adopted with but two dis
senting voices : .
Resolved, That it Is the sense of the
colored people of McMinnville, that
the school for colored people be sus
pended for one year, and the funds
apportioned to them be applied to the
erection of a new school building, and
that said building be erected on the
same grounds as the old building, if
Resolved further, That it is the de
sire of the colored people that the
school shall be separate and apart
from any church building.
J. A. Johnson,
R. B. Ross. t
The colored people are to be con
graculated upon their unanimity upon
the question. The course indicated
in the resolutions is unquestionably
the very best one to pursue under the
circumstances. Everyone recognizes
that it is a great misfortune to sus
pend the school for a year, but no
suitable building can be secured with
out a considerable outlay of money
for repairs, and should a building be
rented and school continued, the
same difficulties would present them
selves a year hence as now, and it is
far better for the masses of the color
ed children to suspend the school for
the ensuing year, and then have a
comfortable, substantial and perma
nent building. If the colored people
will only remain patient and harmo
nious on the question all will be well
in the end.
