Ben Lomond, Tenn., May 7, 1891
Wo are again at Ben Lomond. Came
here yesterday with my wife, not to
spend the summer just yet, but a few
days of the last of winter, for a little
rest and recreation, and to make a lit
tle preparation to come later with our
family for the summer. We do wSsh
some of our friends who have1 lots
here, and others who have not yet
purchased, wauld buy and build sum
mer homes. The place, unimproved,
we know does not have so many at
tractions as other improved summer
resorts, but for a few nionth8 during
the very hot summers that gener
ally come, most of us want and actu
ally need rest aud recreation from
business. Our families need to go
away from home a few months dur
ing the hot weather. For rest and
recreation, for real quiet and pleasure,
Ben Lomond is the best place we
know of. What we desire now is to
have half a dozen nice families up
here every summer. Would have no
objection to more, but with -half a
dozen more families wo could get
along finely. We enjoy it as it is, but
are not so selfish as to want to mo
nopolize all the beauties and pleas
ures of Ben Lomond. It is certainly
a mistake for any business man, if he
can get away without too much
sacrifice, not to go to the mountain or
elsewhere with his family. We may
loose a few dollars by being away.
(not always as much as we imag
ine,) but when we return to business
we are so much improved on account
of rest of body and mind, v can soon
make back all we loose on account of
absence. We knbw what we have
said to be true, so tar as we are con
cerned. We went from Ben Lomond
the latter part of August to begin
tho fall trade refreshed, feeling
well and real anxious to work. We
stuck to it closely, but now as the
summer approaches we want and
really need rest again. It must tie so
with others,wh have worked long
in the store, office or factory, and feel
old age coming on. Come up, gen
tlemen, and build your cottages on
Ben Lomond, and bring your wives
and children up to spend the summer
with us. You will live longer, be
more successful and enjoy life better.

of Viola, and Miss Jessie Mitchell, of
Nashville, were united in marriage

held a position for several terms in
the Viola Normal, Mrs. Ramsey,

known here for her intelligence and
rare social culture. We join their

President McDowell has called an
Alliance meeting at Chattanooga for
Wednesday May 20th, to organize a
Congresssional Union for the Third
Cures in fifteen minutes:
from Mr. Walling tins week, which
merely attenuates a profitless discus
sion that bus no doubt already be
come wearysome to our readers, mid
he will therefore excuse us for giving
only a portion of it. Mr. Walling
has certainly done a gieat deal
toward building up McMinnville, lor
which he deserves much credit, mid
we only wish that he could realize
that a liberal policy of public irited
ness would tend to increase the value
of his in vestments in city property.
e cheerfully give apace to the lol-
lowiug extract from his letter :
'In regard to joining the Commer
cial Club I have all the work that I
can do now, hence no time for Club
meetiugs. All my spare time is
taken up iu putting on the brakes, to
prevent you from ruuuing away with
our town with your rapid progres
sion. Aud in regard to building up
the town, I have certainly built more
houses in this towu than any man in
it, and I am now doing as much, if
not more, to promote its growth
than any member of your Club."

A Death From Consumption.
MissSamantha Rankin, daughter
of Mr. James Rankin of this place,
died last Wednesday night of con
sumption. She was for a long time a
sufferer from that insidious disease
which slowly, but too surely enfeebles
and wears out the physical frame.and
dries up the life blood, but she bore
her sufferings with a christian forii
tudc, and resignedly awaited the
summons of death. She was a con
sistent member of the Christian
Church, and had a large circle of
warm friends. Our sincerest condo
lence is tendered the bereaved family
and in an especial manner to the
aged father. Miss Rankin's remains
were taken to McMinnville, her for
rner home, on Thursday by the 10 a.
in. train for burial.
Full of Tears, Honors and Poaches
Mr. j. a. inowics exnihiteu a
couple of peach tree twigs to us Mon
day, which he clipped from the old
est and most historic peach tree in
the State and perhaps in the United
States. The tree grows on the top of
Hickory Nut Mountain, in the 4th dis'
trict of this county, and is 80 years
old. It has never been known to fail
to bear its fruit, which is a delicious
white freestone peach, and this is the
78th crop it has yielded. The tree is
healthy and thrifty as the twigs
plainly indicate, and is very full of
fruit this season.

Five large porous plasters covered
the breast and hack of a delicate look
ing passenger on the "City of Paris," on
a recent voyage to New York. Ilia
clothing was closely examined by tho
custom-house othcers, but no contra
band goods were found upon him. On
arriving at his home, in West 97th
street, he immediately took a warm
bath, and as he peeled oft' the plasters
ho disclosed thirtv-two diamonds of un
usual brilliancy, worth about 89,500. Ho
makes frequent trips abroad, and his
health and his linances are improving
by these voyages.
