Rev. W. J. Anderson, colporteur
of the American Bible Society.is now
engaged In making a canvass of War
ren county, for the purpose of placing
the Bible in eyery household. This
county was canvassed for the same
cause about eight years ago. Mr.
Anderson has been at work in the
county about one month, and it will
take him two more months to com
plete the work. During the month
of September he visited 430 families,
and found 85 of this number destitute,
or without the scriptures. He sup
plied 7o of these, either by sales or
donations. He sold during the month
$75 worth of Bibles and Testaments,
donated $10 worth. This canvass is
made at the instigation of the Warren
County Bible Society, which is an
auxiliary of the American Bible
The county will realize a good
round sum on the apple crop of the
present year, notwithstanding the
Crop is rather short, and the quality
of most of the fruit not the best. The
high price of dried fruit has stimula
ted the work of saving much of the
fruit in this way. There is also a bet
ter demand than usual this year for
green apples, and large quantities are
now being shipped from here. Mr.
W. Gray has purchased sixteen
orchards, at from $100 to $325 each,
and estimates that he will ship from
them about 10,000 barrels. A Chica
go Iirm has also purchased severa
largo orchards. Large quantities
have also been purchased by Gray
and Mead & Ritchey in small lots.
It is probaMe that the high prices
paid for round and dried fruit this
year will materially reduce the pro
duction of brandy. Only the inferior
fruit will be used for stilling.
We learn that our account last
week of the difficulty between Buck
Locke and Taylor Argo did Locke a
considerable injustice. We were in
error in stating that Locke was only
released from the Texas penitentiary
about three months ago. He wa3
released from there more than two
years ago, and as far as we can learn
had lived a sober, quiet lile from the
time of his release up to the day of
his last difficulty. He is quick tem
pered and hasty in his actions when
under the Influence of liquor, and it
was for a difficulty something similar
to this last one that he was imprison
ed in Texas. He was a "trusty"
during his entire imprisonment there,
and his term was shortened by half
for good behavior. He has the char
acter of being straightforward and
honorable In all of his dealings. We
had no intention or purpose of preju
dicing the minds of the public against
Locke. We merely gave as news
what wa3 correctly reported at the
time, and are glad to correct the er

It is very gratifying to note the
constantly enlarging proportions of
all lines of business in McMinnville.
There has never been anything like a
boom here, but a steady, healthful
growth and increase which inspires
confidence in its nermancy. The
business interests of McMinnville
are largely in the hands of young
and active men of progressive ideas,
who feel a pride in the upbuilding of
the town. Among the business iirms
of McMinnville there is not a more
enterprising and progressive one than
W. S. Lively & Co., manufacturers
and dealers in furniture. Their busi
ness has increased from a small be
ginning until it has reached mam
moth proportions. A few years ago
if any one in McMinnville wanted a
real handsome set of furniture it was
necessary to go to Nashville or some
other city to buy it. Messrs. W. S.
Lively & Co., now carry in stock a
large display of fine furniture, togeth
er with everything desired in the
cheaper grades. They have received
during the last week two car loads of
new furniture, embracing some of
the latest stylo goods in the market.
They have some very attractive bed
room sets in hard wood, maple, oak,
etc, And chairs! Well, they have
anything you can call lor, lrom a
home made split bottom to the most
luxurious willow rocker, also some
new goods in this line in antique oak
and plush. Suppose you call around
and look at their stock; but we ad
vise you to take your pocket book,
for you are certain to see something
you will want, and want it bad.

office if not called for in 30 days.
