The force in the manufacturing

Saturday by the discharge of forty
of the leather-workers. These em

enough straps made up for the pres

Although Unci.'; Samuel keps his
employes busy during work-time,
the hour's recess at noon is nvid a
time of much enjoyment and recre
ation. During the noon hour last
Friday an interesting little scene
transpired in the men s wort-room
down stairs. The entire force was
invited into the nmn, with thn as
surance that there was a surprise in
store for someone. And an agree
able one it proved to be. Mr. Kil
len, one of the employes, called the
meeting to order and, in a nice little
speech and in behalf of the retiring
workmen, presented a handsome
gold watch chain to tliejr foreman,
Mr. H. L. White, iu token of the es
teem in which they held him and in
recognition of his efllcient manage
ment. Mr. White, in a few well-
chosen words, thanked his compan
ions fortheir kindness toward him.
There are a number of excellent
elocutionists among the employes,
and frequently they meet and have
recitals from Shakespeare, comic
recitations, impromptu address on
the issues of the day, etc.
Mai. Greer regrets that he had to
dispense with the services of any of
the hands, but hopes he can retain

Crop to Northern Partle.
Mr. Horace Rainey ha s.ild to T.
W. Thorn &Co.,of Philadelphia, his
crop of winter apples, on the trees,
for tlie cash consideration of $2.5O0.
Thorn & Co. are large exporters of
apples, and this crop is reported by
them as the best they have yet seen
in the South, and they will ship
them direct to the European mar
ket. Here is an object lesson -to the
farmers and fruit growers of Maury
county, which, if learned, will put
many shining silver dollars into
their pockets. There ure those who
have doubted the feasibility of rais
ing apples on a large scale in Maury
county ; but when one man's crop is
sold on the trees fcr $-',500, to bo
shipped for foreign consumptlon.and
is pronounced by the buyers as the
best seen in the South, there must
certainly be something in it. This
is notb first tin Mr. Rainey has.
thu disposed of hie apple crop.
