David E. Durrett was born April
15, 183"), in Albemarle County, Va.,
and was a son of Robert I). and

to Hardeman County in 1SHC and
settled ten miles west of Bolivar.
At the age of fifteen years, the sub
ject of this sketch obtained a situa

In 1801 he enlisted in the Confed
erate service, Company E, Seventh
Tennessee Cavalry. At the battle
of Britton's Lane his left limb was
broken by a niinie ball,v which crip
pled him for life, and necessitated
the use of crutches. In 180" he
opened a store at Cloverport, and
one year later located in Bolivar,
where he formed a partnership with
Hugh Ilarkins, Sr. They estab
lished a house, the firm being known
as Ilarkins & Durrett. Their busi
ness was extensive and profitable,
and the firm was recognized as one
of the most substantial and reliable

existed for such a number of years.

friends. In his death the commu
nity loses one of its most prominent
citizens and his family a kind and

General Crop Conditions.,
Following is the report of the
general condition of crops in Ten
nessee for week ending, Monday,
May 20iu, 1901:
The weather continued dry during
the first five days of the week, and
crops made slow progress; the late
planted corn and cotton came up
very slowly. In some sections it
was too dry to prepare the soil for
seeding of peas and millet. Trans
planting of tobacco was kept back,
and oats, Irish potatoes, gardens
aud all vegetation suffered. How
ever, some early planted corn and
cotton received the first plowing
and farm work was generally well
kept up. Fine rains fell over most
of the slate from the 17th to 19th,
greatly benefiting all crops. Many
reports of correspondents were sent
in before the rains came and' deal
mostly with the deteriorating effects
of the dry weather, but a sufficient
number of later reports were receiv
ed to justify the statement that the
effects of the drouth have been
greatly relieved. Late planted cot
ton and corn will now probably
come up well ; tobacco and sweet
potatoes will be transplanted rapidly,
the sowing of peas and millet will
be pushed forward, and oats, Irish
potatoes and gardens will no doubt
show decided improvement. Early
cotton is a fair stand generally.
Wheat is heading in all sections
now; .in several cases the heads are
reported short and the stalk low.
No doubt a large proportion of the
strawberry crop was saved by the
rains. Fruit prospects are reported
"good, though apples are falling in
some places badly. The blackberry
crop is very promising.
