McMIMYILLE PRODUCE MARKET.
Corrected weekly by Mead & Ititchey.
Officii Southern Standakd,
McMinnville, August 29, 1890.
' We are pleased to report a better
demand for most articles of country
produce. The demand for dried
fruits is good and prices have steadily
advanced until sun dried apples are
worth 5 to 51, blackberries 6 to CJ.
Eggs are also in good demand at 12
to 13, and rather scarce. Poultry
weak and lower for small frying
chickens. Hens and large frys pre
ferred. Butter is very dull and un
salable, unless of the very best qual
ity. Why is it that a majority of
butter makers, especially in thecoun
try, do not make first class butter? Is
it that they do not know how, or is it
carelessness? Some people know
how and do make sweet, yellow but
ter,while many others make it white,
streaked and inferior. Those who
do not know how Bhould go to some
good butter maker and learn how.
It is certainly worth the trouble to
make it good and nice, since poor
butter will not pay for cow feed,
much less trouble for handling.

The Fate of Deputy Marshall Da

of Ilevenue Raids.
"A visit to Irving College, a few
miles Southeast of this place, shows
evidence of abundant rains, which
will bring crops up to an average, if
not above it. But the people in the
vicinity of this village are not wholly
dependent upon, and show little in
terest in, any kind of crops, except it
be that of apples. It is within a ra
dlous of ten or fifteen milles that a
greater amount of brandy is made
than in any other whole county in
the United States."
"Two-thlrda is "wild-cat." This
has been the ruin of Irving College,
once a flourishing institution of learn
ing, from which a great many of the
most prominent and successful men
of the State were graduated. This
section is a terror to Ilevenue officers.
who a few years ago made frequent
raids in the mountains in search of
"moonshiners." The moonshiners
soon tired or this, however, and ever
since the evening in which about
fifty double barrelled loads of buck
shot were emptied into the body of
Jim Davis, about three miles from
this place, anu another omcer came
near sharing his fate, the moonshin

trade almost without interruption,

in the mountainous section to answer

Editor Standakd: The above
is contained in a communication from
McMinnville, published in the Nash
ville Banner of Aug. 18th.
We do not know who tho corres
pondent is, neither do we care to
make his acquaintance, nor do we
know his object in writing such an
article, but this we do know, that he
is either honestly mistaken, or has
wilfully misrepresented our commun
ity. If he is a stranger in this part
or the country, he has been misin
formed, and has acted very impru
dent in writing such an article unless
he knew it to be a fact. If he is one
of our own county men, and is posted
on his county's history, ho knows
that a greater portion of the article is
false. People who have read that
article and are not acquainted with
this community, have already brand
ed us as ignorant, drunken murder
ers, none excepted. We know that
we live back up here among the
mountains, but we will inform the
gentleman that we have just as sober,
energetic men took the task, rebuilt
the College, and ever since that time
we have not wanted for schools.
So Irving College was not ruined
by "wild-cat brandy." There are
ten months of each year through
which we have a good school, and
better instructors are not to be found
in tho State than we have here. The
same bell that rang out before its
"ruin" still calls together pupils of
the average and above the average
intelligence, whom we earnestly hope
will, from the lessons learned at
Irving College, love the truth and
right, and one day take their place
among the famous men of the land.

Deathofilr. C. McClarty.
Mr. Cyrus McClarty died at hia
home in this place about 4 o'clock
Tuesday afternoon, Aug. 2Cth. Mr.
McClarty returned home sick, from
Arkansas, about two weeks ago, and
had been confined to his room since
his arrival, but he was not consid
ered dangerously ill. He was thought
to be improving, and his family and
many friends were entirely unpre
pared for the shock which his sudden
demise occasioned. He had been a
traveling salesman for a Louisville
saddlery firm for the past twelve or
fifteen years, with the exception of
about three years during which he
was proprietor of the Warren House.
He was very warmly attached to his
family, and his wife and children
were very much devoted to him.
He was one of those genial men who
made friends of everybody with
whom he came in contact, nnd his
death occasions sincere regret
throughout the entire community.
The remains were interred Thursday
morning, after a funeral service at
the residence by Rev. J. T. Curry.

Wednesday, Aug. 27. The tone
of the general market is active for
the season. Trade 13 picking up all
around and the business thorough
fares look very much like we were
in the middle of the busy season of
the year. Merchants report collec

to note in groceries today. The

fair demand. Country produce main

Some of our county correspon

piece of news given in their letters to
tho Standard. It would be very
agreeable to us to fill up the paper
with these comments if they satis
fied our readers, but they don't, con
sequently we invariably eliminate al
such comments from the correspon
dence. It is newa that readers of
newspapers want, and our corres
pondents can lessen the labor of
writing to the paper by simply writ
ing the news, and nothing more. If
a correspondent has but one item of

that, and it is not necessary to write
