Death of Prof. Furman.
Prof. Thomas B. Furman died at
the residence of Mr. II. M. Street, in
this place, Jan. 16th, 1891, in the QCth
year of his age. He was born in
Beaufort, S. C, in July, 182C.
Prof. Furman was an accomplished
scholar and linguist, a man of culture
and refinement, a sincere Christian,
a kind husband, and a friend to the
poor and needy. He had traveled
over many countries of the world,
and spoke several languages fluently.
He moved to McMinnville shortly
after the war, and taught a select
school, assisted t-y his wife, up to
within a few years ago, when his
health began to fail. He also owned
a home at Monteagle, where his sum
iners had been spent for a number of
years. He was a .veteran of the
Mexican war. His wife survives
him. They had no children. A ser
vice of prayer was held over the re
mains at the residence of Mr. Street
on Sunday afternoon, and the body
was taken to Sewanee on Monday
morning for interment.
It pays to be enterprising. Already
Warren county's bridge movement is
advertising u abroad, and we are be

The Warren county court has taken
a step in bridge improvement that it
might be well for other counties to
follow. A special bridge tax has been
levied, and a committee appointed to
securo bids for the erection of a num
ber of substantial iron bridges. They
will also obtain bids from citizens
along the various highways on which
said bridges are contemplated, and
the section furnishing the largest sub
scription list in proportion to cost of
bridge to supplement the county tax,
will get the first bridge. The aver
oge wooden bridge with good repairs,
lasts about eight years, and the ex
pense of renewing and keeping them
up is a constant drain upon the re
sources of the county. While iron
bridges are more costly to build,
when once erected they are perma
nent, and far cheaper in' the long run
to say nothing of the enhanced val
ue they give to farm lands in the ad
Good bridges will also gradually
bring better roads. One step of pro
gress naturally leads to another, and
step by step we will move on to bet
ter firm houses, improved methods
of farming, more school houses and
more churches. Let the good work
