.1 Stock Show.
In nearly all Middle Tennessee
towns there is a big display of fine
stock on the lirst Monday in April.
By a little concert of action on the-
part of stock owners in Warren coun
ty, quite a creditable stock shew
could be held here ot, that day. This
is a matter the County Alliance
should take in hand. . Whenever the
Alliance can spare time from its po
litical affairs to give attention to such
things as this, the Standard will
give them all the help and encourage
ment in our power.
Who are Your Favorites.
As is generally known, we are to
elect a Mayor and three Aldermen
in May, to serve for a term of two
years. With a view of getting the
sense of the people of the town as to
their choice for men to fill these po
sitions, the Standard will hold a
little primary election. We invite
and request each legal voter of the
corporation of McMinnville to fill out
the ballot below and hand it in to tho
Standard office as early as practi
We have fixed April 1st, lid and 3d

in the stock, and we cordially invite
everybody in McMinnvilleand vicin
ity to visit us and look at our beauti
ful display on the opening days.

We have heard no complaint as
yet of damage to the fruit crops in
this county. Peach and pear trees
are now blooming freely, and young
leaves are beginning to appear. The
apple trees have not put out their
blooms yet. We have often heard it
said that fruit is never killed in
March. The cold spell which almost
invariably follows Easter is the dan

Mr. F, E. Jones to a partnership with

where he purchased one of the finest
and handsomest hearses now manu
factured, together with a large stock
of furniture. The new firm will oc

Ed. J. Wood, P. M.
In an article about corporation
matters a week or two ago we stated
that the corporation tax of McMinn
ville was CO cents on each $100 worth
of property, which was erroneous.the
tax bping only 50 cents on each $100.
Five or six years ago, when our City
Schools were established, the corpora
tion tax was increased from 25 to 50
cents, and has remained unchanged
ever since. The present Board has
been charged with increasing the tax
ation, which is unjust. By better
business management and closer col
lections they have materially increas
ed the revenues of the corporation,
but they have not increased the rate
of taxation one iota. The corpora
tion of McMinnville maintains good
police regulations,one of the best sys
tems of city schools in the State.every
street in town graded and graveled,
has not a dollar of bonded or flouting
debt, but has money in the treasury.
Aud this is all done on a 50 cent tax.
Is there another town in the State
which can make such a showing?
