Administrators, guardians and
merchants should read the notice of
County Court Clerk Hammer in this
issue, and save themselves costs and
trouble by making prompt settle

tates which they have administered
upon, but have not made settlements

would be well for all administrators

The Nashville Amerlcau, in its
report of the crysanthemurn show
one day last week, had the following
pretty compliment to McMinnville's
bonny song bird:
"The singing of Miss Mary Ritchey
was unique in its freshness, full in
sympathy, clear, strong and sweet at
all times. Her willingness to assist
in the entertainment, and the natur
ai pose oi tier ngure wnne so many
eyes were upon her, were matters
that aroused a general enthusiasm in
the gathering, and made her a favor
ite as she wandered afterward among
the flowers. Miss Ritchey's home is
in McMinnville, but in Nashville
she has many friends who are always
happier when ehe is with them."

Standard will expire during the
next two months. We hope to re

many new ones. Ve find that the
cash in advance system, coupled with
the plan of discontinuing the paper at
the expiration of time paid for,
pleases a majority of subscribers much
better than the old credit system, and
we shall adhere strictly to the cash
plan, if you wish to- receive the
