T.'ie Xeiv Telegraph Company.
The lines of the Postal Telegraph-
Cable Co., reached here last Monday,
and an office was opened in the War
ren House with Mr. Horace Ilarwel
in charge.. All of the material, in
struments, etc., used by the new
company are of the best quality, and
the lines are being put up in the most
substantial manner. At present there
are two wires reaching from Chatta
nooga to McMinnville, but polls are
put in sufficient to carry twelve
wires. There is one office between
here and Chattanooga, at Dunlap
The Company has about two thous
and offices now open throughout the
United States and Canada, and is
rapidly extending its lines iu vario'us
directions. Abetter selection could
not have been made for an operator
at this place. Horace Harwell is
popular with everybody, is an expert
manipulator of the key, alway
pleasant and accommodating, and
will get more business for the new
company than any one else they
could have put in charge.
The coal business on Knoxville &
Ohio road Is assuming enormous pro
portions, and by the last of the mont

Deaf h of TF.'K.' French.
Mr. W. R. French," who removed
from TuHahom'a to Gallatin several
months ago, died at his home in the
atter place last Monday night from
softening of the brain.' He was cash-
er of the First National Bank1, of
Gallatin. Mr. French had been ill
but a short time, and the announce
ment of his death was received with
deep regret by his many friends ' and
acquaintances in McMinnville He
was buried at Gallatin 'on Wednesday
by Knights of Pytldas and Knights'
Templar. . ... ;
Mr. French was born and raised in
Warren County. 'He went, into the
army' from here, with the Eleventh
Tenneaseee cavalry and served the
South gallantly for four years. After
the war he eettled in Tullahomft, and
was one of the leading spirits in the
upbuilding , of that town.. By' his
ndomitable energy he achieved . suc
cess, lie was a true friend, a genial
companion, and bad an extensive
circle of acquaintances with vho'm
he was universally popular. Tulla-
tioma lost one of its most useful citi
zens when he removed to Gallatin,
and the general expression of regret
manifested over his death at the lat
ter place show8 that his wortli was
also appreciated there. .

( Dried Apples. . '. "
. Last week the attention of fruit
dryers and dealers was called to the
mportance of fruit being well dried
before offering It for sale. We again
emphasize those suggestions. While
there has been some improvement
there is yet room for more. As be
fore stated, shippers are now obliged
to reject all wet, sour and undried
apples, and dryers and dealers will
save much trouble and inconvenience
by leaving all fruit on the scaffolds
until dry. Some few people think it
sharp, as well as profitable, to sell
wet, green fruit for dryr and never
hesitate to do so if they can. A few,
(but they are very few) we foar have
wet their fruit to make it weigh
heavier. These Instances have been
few. Still the desire of gain will
sometimes lead one U do even as
mean a thing as this. To avoid all
trouble dry well and obtain the best
prices. "Honesty in all things is the
best policy." A word about green
apples. Dou't hurry your apples to
market before they are ready. Take
care of them and dry or utilize those
going to waste, and when fully ma
tured and ready then pick carefully,
separating the good from the inferior
11 good apples will be worth more
later when the weather is cooler and
the demand better. Immatured
pies are not fit for use and will be
neglected in the markets. Let them
mature before gathering. Let them
remain until they are of good size
and color and then they will sell
well . M ka d & R itci 1 1: v.
Bee Martin, Joe Perkins and John
Drake made their escape from the
county jail at this place a little after
three o'clock last Tuesday alternoon.
Some repairs had been in progress on
the cell, (it might more properly be
called a dungeon), where the prison
ers are usually confined, and six of
them, two negroes and four white
men, were cooped up in a little stock
ade about five by ten feet in size
The fastening to the door seems to
have been a very insecure affair. A
large staple which held the lock was
secured (?) on the in&ide by two taps.
The prisoners had only to unscrew
these taps, push out the staple with
their fingers, and the door was open
to them. The prisoners ran up the'
street by Mr. Colville's residence, to
the river, following up the bluff for
some distance and then going into
the woods back of Col. Hughes' place
Martin, who is old and somewhat
crippled, was recaptured and brought
back in an hour or two, but Perkins
and Drake are yet at large. Three
other prisoners, two negroes and one
white man, refused to leave after the
door was opened.
Perkins and Drake were under sen
tence of one year each in the peniten
tiary for burglary. Joe Turney, the
high sheriff of the State,came the fol
lowing day to take them to the pen
but found his birds had flown. They
are both mere boys, about 18 or 19
years of age, and the ends of justice
will not suffer much, probably, i
they are never recaptured. A year
in the Tennessee penitentiary would
not improve their morals any : they
woald be much more likely to come
out hardened and confirmed cnmi
nals. This scare and narrow escape
from the penitentiary may be sum
cient to teach them to lead better
lives in the future, if they succeed in
cetting tar enough from their old
holm's, and out of reach of Tennessee

Djcau Sirs: The recent advance in leather will necessitate manufactur
ers to advance the price on all lines of their goods or reduce their value pro
I wish to inform you that such will not be the case on our goods, as wo
propose to continuo using the same grade of leather which Iihs made our
shoes so popular with both dealers and consumers.
This advance will cause the retail trade to make a corresponding one or
lessen their profits on unstamped goods, , which will without question make
an increased demand for W. L. Pore; las Shoks, which are. bcttei known
than any other shoes manufactured. Respectfully,. ,
