A YDKLOTT, A. H. Brown, Com A. W. ST'H'KKLL $-looi Outfits. Many bmy brains aud fingers are just now at work getting readj for the open ing of the school year. Hundreds of young girls jus. leaving their teens and just en tering them, are prep: ring and having prepared their wardrobes for the next ten months. The great questions how many dresses, of what material they shall be, and how they shall be made agitate the youthful feminine heart and intrude up on the night watches of the anxious ma trou mother. Let the number be ample, the material gjad, and the style of mak ing simple. Only parvenus heap fimry and gewgawa on school children, l'eo pie of good ta6le are known by the severe simplicity of their dress on occasions where full dress is not called for, aud it certainly is not called for in the school room. A girl or boy so attired as to oc casion remark, either for the richness or the poverty of his or her dress, will find it hard to lose consciousness of elf in devotion to study; that loss of conscious ness, that total absorption in school duties which makes the pupil insensible, in o manner, to eysrytbing else, is greatly to be desired. The best teachers, as a class, are indifferent to dress, and the first glance at an overdressed pupil gives them a feeling of discouragement with respect to influencing such a student toward the attainment of a high grade of scholarship; and this is a bad impression for the pupil to make, and almost as bad for the teach ers to receive. Another reason why wealthy parents should dress their chil dren plainly is found in the fact that so few comparatively of the thousands that fill our schools can afford to dress hand somely, and it is an irreparable injury to a girl to foster in her a disposition to think herself better than others by reason of merepefuniary ability to make a finer ap pearance than they. How hardly shall they that trust iu riches enter, not the kingdom of heayeu only, but the kingdom of knowledge, ol high aspiration, ot real ..i ... .... e , power. 1 lainiy dressed students soon nna out that apparel do.'s not mean scholar ship, and soon get over any pain they may have had by reason of unfavorable comparisons in that regard, but the girl who prides herself on her superiority of dress rarely recovers her senses in time to profit by her schooling. As a matter of mere common sense and pure taste let the school outfits be ample, tastelul, and simple. Bear Creek. Down in the leafy grove this quiet Sun day eve, beneath a tall white-bodied syc amore, on the bank ol the creek, sits a rus tic beauty, with the glow of health and youth mantling her cheeks, and her soul sparKiuig in uer sou. eyes; wun ner snowy finger3 she twirls (a little confusedly) a sycarnore burr; while a lad, two years her senior, in close proximity, appears busily and urgingly engaged in conver sation.

Many relatives and friends werfivited to witness this rare marriage, and all joined in hearty congratulations, to the happy pair. Mrs. King gave a splendid supper to grace the occasion. The table was supplied most sumptuously with cakes, such as a baker might vie in vain to surpass while as a snowerest, thai hangs from some lone Alpine crag; many varieties of meats, pickles, and confec tioneries, were beautifully arranged in great profussion.

To the Editor of the Herald and Mail: It may not be known to many of our people, that (Jen. Withers, a distinguish ed son of A'a., is in our county with 'the view, and for the purpose of organizing the department of tho State of Tennes see, ot the Granger's Life and Health In surance Company, ol the U. S. of Amer ica. This company, is chartered by the State of Ala. The charter runs for nine hundred and ninety-nine years, and its provisions, in favor pf tlie stock and Col icy holders, are as liberal as could e desired. It allows an annual divi dend ol twenty per cent, first.to the stock holder; the rest of the surplus earnings is mutually divided between the policy hollers. The charter allows the moth er office, to have forty-live departments, and its capital stock is placed at four and a half millions of dollars. The States of Alabama, ' Mississippi and Ueorgia.are fully organized with a paid up capitol of one hundred thousand dollars each. Geu. Withers is here, as I have said, lor the purpose of organi zing this State. Ivich State has its own Vice President and board of directors, and all its capital funds, and earnings, and invested in the State, under the control and direction of the State Board of directors. Gen, Withers d--g that the headquarters of the department of this State, shall be located in Columbia, and oflers to our people the privilege ol taking this stock. Tho company has wisely adopted the rule ot requiring each stock holder, to furnish a policy double in amount ot the stock subscri bed, which insures the success of the company from its organization. Ten per cent oi the stock, is all that is ever required to be paid in cash. Ninety per cent of the stock is paid by note, and in four and a half years, the premium on the stock, will redeem the note. In a communication like this, it would be trespassing too much upon your space, to attempt to point out all the advantages that the organization fo this company oflers to the people of Maury County. First, it will retain all our Life Insurance money at borne, and its management will lie under the direc tion ol our own people. It will bring in a few yeats hundreds of 'thousands ol dollais ot money to be invested in our midst, which will materially assist in building up our city and county. It will give us practically another bank, with large capital. Millions of dollars are sent out of our State annually to pay for Life lusurance, all ot whioh should be retained at home, and made an element ol prosperity, instead of weakness to the State. I have ?iven this subject some thought and consider-. ation. bur wisest men, regard "Life Insurance" as one of the grandest and noblest inst itutionseverdeviseci by man. My object in this letter, is to call the at tention of our people to the subject, to its immediate importance, because, if Mauiy county and Columbia do not em brace this opportunity soon, some other town and county will do so. I ask pur business men and our fatmers, to in vestigate the subject. Call at the Nels son House and see Gen. Withers, and then act promptly. B. A. Kouers. fl-Mr. J. II. James left for New on lasvflonday night. Yori, Death of Kev. A. W. Niullli. Rev. Austin Willis Smith, pastor of the Methodist Church, in this place, died at the Parsonage, yesterday morn ing, at ll:3e, calmly and peacefully, t a babe at rest: He nad been siek more than a month, arul tor nearly throe weeks, bis life has piuig'as it were, on a single thread; fef wS(ks he hss b.wr. nursed and visited, syld'iid and sympa thizing friends, and everything that hu man science, and skill, aud love could do, has been done to keep him with ns. but all in vain. Dr. Smith was sent here in Octob: r, IStiU, from Lebanon, by the Tennessee Conference, and ho so won the affection and love of his people, that he was kept, here for four years, which was as lone as tho MoUiodist Church allows a minister to be sent to one place consecutively. Just as soon as it was possible to tret him back, at the expiration of a Conference year, the people here, Methodists, cumDerianu Presbyterians, Presbyteiians, Baptist Episcopalians, and thoeie who belonged to no church everybody, white and black, who had a chance, said to th i delegate to the Conference, "Be certain to bring us Dr. Smith." Had he lived, ne would nave been Kept nere for an other lour years, and then alter the lapse of another year to meet the church law, he would have been brought back, as long as ho lived. And he would have come, let the pay bo small or large, it was all the same t i him. He didu't work for pay, but lor his Master, whom beloved, with a lovt that was niord than love; and loving Him, he loved tho people, especially the poor people. And tho poor people loved him During hissickness, every body you met, ask6d the question, 'How is Dr. Smith?" Probably no man ever died iu our town, who had so won the respect, esteem and affection of every body. His opsu, manly lacy invited the friendship ol all who nioi him, aiui he always had a kind and chtefful greeting lor everybody. Anil when ho came to die, the last ray ofconcious ness that emanated from his face, w;s blight smile for the grief-stricken ones assembled around his bed. And tliiu passed away, to his Savior, as noble a spiiit as ever lived. Ho was ot such material as uiartyis are made all gen tleness, love and purity, but lirm in matters ot principle, as the everlasting hills. The world is better because he has liyed in it, and is a loser uow that he has left it. As soon as ho died the Presbyterians unanimously tendered their Cburch lor the funeral services. Dr. D. C. Kelley, of Xashvil'.e, who is very like Dr. Smith in disposition ami whom he greatly loyed, came out to bee him Frilay night, aud consented to preach his lunerai, which will t.iku place to-'norrow morning ct half past, ten o'clock, in thn Prosby terian Church.

The Board of Directors of tlie New York Cheap Transportation Company held their regular mouthy meeting yes terday afternoon, at N'o. 1 1' 1'corl street, I'reuidvnt ii. I'. Baker in the i chair. The Executive Committee reported that, for sometime past, they had had mis der consideration the (jiiestioti of a frtirflil railway Irom this city to the Went ami that in investigating a;; io the advisability uiid practicability of lending the; aid of the as socation to a project of this character the question of gauge, had coinmat.ded nnd received especial attention. The com mittee was, it reported, in commuiiica tion with eminent authorities, of both this country and Europe, and as soon as pos sible a full report of its doings would be submitted to the board. Mr. V. U, Xh'T ber, Secretary of the. tfoi'iation, ihen Td i? at Mr" Cornish., president ol " ort.v-nrot, araiiel railroad, which hiu been layorably reported upon by the Committee on Railways and Cauals of the last House of Representatives, would read a review of the claims and merits narrow gauge roads. Mr. Hornish 8 docs ument stated that the actual cost of trans portation by railroads is a material ele ment in all measures involving the ne cessities of commerce yiitkg security of the money invested in tRPWublic high ways. Commerce should not demand rates telow safely to thu capitol infested. Yet at the presetit time the public ia de manding a reduction of rates while captui is demanding an advance. This conllici has been raging lor the past two year with the most disastrous and demoralizing influence on all parties. It is held thai the entire trouble grows out of the nature of our present railroads, or. in other words, that our standard gango railroad? (four feet eight and one-half inches) are not adapted to the conditions of the com . L . .1 . . mcrce oi ine country or me age. INar row gauge railroads (three feet in width) are now proposed as the common ground upon wnicnaii can meet.
