Notice to Public School Teach
Your summer vacation will soon be
upon you, and it Is suggested that you
can pass your time equally as pleasant
ly and far more profitably by coming
together in a Normal School, at the
Court House in Pulaski, were you will
be instructed in all the modern. and
most approved methods of teaching the
common school branches, have all the
knotty questions and difficulties which
beset the young teacher solved and re
moved ; and, alter a full and free inter
change of opinion, arrive at a uniform
and the best method ot instruction.
This can be done at comparatively
small expense, and will '-greatly benefit
not only the teachers but the schools,
by securing efficiency and uniformity
in text books, more of teaching and ev
erything appertaining thereto.
1 propose to open my .Normal School.
in the County Court room in Pulaski on
1st Monday in June next, and continue
the same until the public schools are
generally opened. Any one, male or
female, wishing to join the school will
please notify' me immediately. Come
one and all and 1 will do you good.
ALFRED LI. ABERNATHY,

Ayer's Cathartic Pills are the best of
all purgatives for family use. They are
the product of long, laborious and suc
cessful chemical investigation, and their
extensive use by physicians - in their
practice, and by all civilized nations,
proves them the best and most enestual
purgative pill that medicalscience can
devise. Being purely vegetable no
harm can arise from their use. In in
trinsicvaiae and curative powers no
other pills can be compared with them,
and every person, knowing tneir vir
tues, will employ them, when needed."
They keep the f ystem in pertect oracr,
and maintain in healthy aetion the
whole machinery of life. Mild, search

adapted to the needs of the digestive ap

Thirty-Four Buildings' Worth
Over $400,000 Burned. .
A fire broke out at 10 :30 a. m. on
Tuesday in Nashville in a cellar on
the corner of Church and College
streets and was almost instantly be
yond control, the place being a
painl and oil house. It spread rap
idly, the fire engines being badly
supplied with water, and soon the
buildings in all directions were in
fames and the people panic strick
en. A strong -gale was. blowing
and the city seemed almost doomed,
but the direction of the wind car
ried the flames directly , over the
American . office tnd it resisted
them to an' extent that exhausted
them before they could communi
cate further. The American office
was almost destroyed, but they
saved their forms and sufficient ina
terial to come out the next morn
ing as usual with a full account of
the calamitous conflagration. The
buildings all adjacent were burned
and the block just in front of the
Maxwell, and even the Maxwell
itself, was barely saved. The Noel
block, said to be about the hand
somest in the city, was utterly de
stroyed. It cost $70,000 and was
insured for $43,000. Warren Bros,
lost $60,000, insured for $20,000.
George. A; Dickel, the great whisky
dealer, lost $75,000, insured for
$40,000. Other persons, in all
lost property worth $426,725, in
sured for just half, $213,750. Thirty-four
buildings and residences
were burned. The losses ringed,
except those above, from $100 to
$20,000. It was the most destruc
tive fire since 1866. .
In Pulaski we heard that thi
and that house was burning, that
the fire was beyond control, that
the Maxwell was consumed and the
whole of the city in. flames from
Broad to Cedar. We were greatly
relieved to know at last that at
about 1 o'clock the fire departmen
succeeded in getf'ng control. Peo
pie were already discussing the
probability of the Maxwell being
rebuilt, and guessing how hand
somely Chicago would come down
with aid. We are glad there is no
necessity for it. The loss falls
mostly upon men who are not ut
terly ruined by it, but most of them
able to stand it. The American
exhibits its characteristic enterprise
in coming out the next morning
It was fully insured, and is printed

After a fitting address by Gen.
Fitzhngh Lee, Jefferson Davis
yielded to vociferous calls and
made a short speech, in which he
said: vFrom the academic shades

and ' constitutional liberty. He
lived for his country, never doubt
ing, the "justice of his cause. . , Be
lieving it was righteous and trust
ing in it, he died as I live to day.
believing that the Confederacy
ought to have succeeded, because it
was founded on truth and justice,
No one expected that Jackson
would ever appear as the great hero
ot our war, and stand in the mind
of Europeans as the mightiest chief
tain the Confederacy had. He
gave his life for the whole country
and the country gave its heart to
Jackson. You men upon whom he
leaned in the hour of danger in hon

We are visited almost daily with
drummers and cattle buyers. Maj.
H. II. Aymett, John b. Rose and
P. Taylor of Pulaski were with us
last week. Rev. Mr. Woodward
has been on a visit to his father in
Lincoln county. J. P. Grigsby
has been visiting relatives at Elkton.
Mrs. L. L. Westmoreland is still
in very feeble health, but she is im
proving slowly. Miss Malissa
Hughes is very low with consump
tion We have organized a Y. M.
C. A. at this place and it seems, to
be doing a great deal of good. We
have had a good Sunday-school
here all the time. We don't let
the cold weather freeze usout in
the winter and have to reorganize
in the spring.
A bouse on Mrs. O. C. Grigsby s
farm was burned en Tuesday night,
May 10th. It was a frame house
with four rooms and a hall, occu
pied by T. P. Wilson, he having
rented 300 acres of-Mrs. Grigsby's
river bottom fan!. The fire com
menced on the east end of the house
where there had been no fire for
sometime. Seve-al hundred pounds
of bacon, a barrel of molasses, a
sack of coffee, most of the house
hold and kitchen furniture and a
great many other things were lost
the house. Ihe damage sup-
posidto be about $1000 or $1200. A
clear case of incend arism.
W. S. Legg gave the young peo

Dr. J. P. Jones, Rev J. C.

Some of the preachers say they
have never been solicited to preach
as much before as they row are, and

be) now, are gone cases.
The boys sometimes say -tue corn

The farmers are putting "in ail the
forces and time these dry days,
and ere long crops will bo worked
over. Wheat seems to be- improv
ing very much. This season, like
all wet springs, is the waite clover
season. It appears to be good lor
all kinds of stock until it begins to
seed, then it doesn't suit horses, as
it salivates them. Upon close ex
amination -we find that the apple
crop will be very light. We have
an average peach crop.
.As we, have but little news, we
will give you something odd: Af
ter feasting on some juicy, delicious
lamb at Uncle Ned Marks', he, after
talking about many old time things
and scenes interesting to us, gave
us a slip of the "Whig Courier"
dated March 12th, 1840, : edited by
Alston Bacon Esies, Pulaski,
Teon. The slip contains the then
recent ' county election, which we
think would be interesting now to
many of yoar readers: ,
C. C. Abemathy, re elected cir
cuit couit clerkwithout opposition.
Edward D. Jones, re elected county
court clerk without opposition.

Hisq'r Noblett is the -only one
of the officers above mentioned who
is now living, as far us our know!

courts and the treasurer have sons
now living in Pulaski, filling im
portant offices and places. Two of
the constables, Messrs. Ezell and
Grubbs, have each a son a Metho
dist minister. Mr. Arrowsmith has
four sons in Pulaski. Mr. A. B,
Carter we believe was the father
of our stock raiser, Wm. .C. Carter
of HillSide. Mr. Chesley McMil
lion has a son living Gus a law

Some of Mr. Thorpe's descendents
live near Millville, Lintoln county
All these names are familiar to
the writer except those of Messrs
A. A. Grecson and Purnell, but we
know so little of the others we can
say nothing. Would like for some
older citizen to take the entire list
and tell us all something about
those and their descendents whom
we can t write about. It appears
thct there was not such a scrambling
for offices in those times as now.
Four men elected to importantoffices
without opposition appears et range
to us now. Seventeen civil districts
are all that we find on this list and
we believe that constituted the
whole number then. . About 2,000
votes were polled then. . Mom.
