The Tullahoma Guardian summar
izes our article of last week in which
we strictured some individual or in
dividuals in that neighborhood who
had evidently been lying about Mc
Minnville, and replies ns follows:
"These be serious charges and
while we shall not say they are false
as to "some people" we can very
safely pronounce them untrue as to
any respectable citizen of the town.
Our people are not built that way
and would give two good words for
McMinnville where they would give
one false one.
"Besides this, Mr. Burlingame
don't say he got his "information"
from a citizen of Tullahoma and Tul

congregate about the depot. As a
business man on an important busi

Mr. Burlingame shows up in bad

"individuals" that must have been
strangers to him to deter him from
the prosecution of a purely business

came, still that does not excuse the
brazen falsehood and misrepresenta

Demorest contest held here last night

Mr. J. II. Potter and Misses Julia
and Lizzie Potter, from Smithville,

very fine music. The weather being
nice and warm for the season, and
the night moonshiny and light, there
was a large attendence. Among the
.visitors was Miss Maggie MeGehee
and Miss Lillie Womack, from Me
Minnville, and many others.

Alter iney nau partaken oi the em
