Thome's Comedy Company.
During the I.nst week, or rather
hince hist Tuesday night, our little
city and its amusement loving co
pie have been gladdened by the
advent of Thome's reorganized Come
dy Company, Brass Band ami Or
chestra, who have held forth nightly
at Clark's Hall to good houses. To
speak of their full deserts, time ami
space does not jermit us; but we can,
in justice to their exertions iu endea
voring to please the public, assert that
they have far surpassed our remotest
anticipations. They are without ex
agcration a Troupe of Artists. The
company opened Tuesday night in
Caruille. Owing to the inclemency of
the weather, the audience was not
largo, but made up of the best people
of our little city. Miss Bonnie Mey
er, nsJCamille, was all that could be
desired, adding fresh laurels to her
enviable reputation. She was most
ably supported by that Prince of Co
medians, Mr J. H. Thorne, and T. J,
Nolan, as Gaston and Armand Duval,
Both were strictly first class, displaying
a degree of talent seldom witnessed
Mr Z. T. Carroll, as the Count De
Varville, gave a most acceptable rent
dition of that difficult role. 1 he oth
er members of the company rendered
efficient support in their several char
acters. The company is a good one,
composed of ladies and gentlemen.

THE TREZEYAXT BARBECUE
Outpouring of the Mas-.l
Feast of lleaon and Oth
er Good Things.
Last Friday was a day long to be
lemembercd by the good people oi
our neighboring town of Trezevant.
According to the announcement pub
lished in the Exchange, at an early
hour people began to arrive in all man
ner of conveyances by rail, carriage,
buggy, wagou, horse-back, foot-back,
etc.' until there were two or .three
thousand present, many hundreds of
whom were fair and beautiful women.
On reaching the grove, a substan
tial stand was found, beautifully dec
orated with wreaths and flowers, a
tribute to the eloquent speakers by
the aocomplifshed'adieS' 6f the neigh-v
borhood. Under the management of
Grand Marshal Harris and his effi
cient assistants, the most perfect order
was maintained, not the slightest dis
turbance occurring during the day.
Gen. Atkins, congressman from
the Eighth District, delivered one of
his ablest and most eloquentaddresses,
oommandiag the profound attention
of his audience and making a power
ful impression on all. A large part
of his time was devoted to the consid
eration ot the financial condition of
the country, in which he reiterated his
views as expressed during the cam
paign last year and in the halls of
Congress. He attributed the distress
of the country the past few years to
the financial mismanagement of the
party in power in passing the resump
tion act and demonetizing silver. He
was in favor of repealing both those
measures and the national banking
laws also. He wanted a free curren
cy of Treasury notes, couvertable into
U. S. Bonds.
He also reviewed the action of the
Electoral commission, denouncing the
fraud perpetrated by that body, and
scoring Tilden for his failure to lead
the party when the crisis arrived.
In sjeakingof the jlicyof tho Ad
ministration, he endorsed the main
features of the Presidents course so far
as developed; but he doubted his siu
ccruy. He was willing to give bim
credit for adopting a purt of the Dem
After the conclusion of the Bpeech
of Gen. Atkins, dinuer wasannounced,
and the ladies requested to occupy the
tables first. After they hail dined,
the gentlemen filled the tables several
times, but it was impossible to con
sume the bountiful supplies set before
them. The barbecue was the best
cooked and served that we ever saw.
Everything was as well prepared as if
it had been done for a pi ivate family.
The managers literally kept their
promise to give visiting editors a
"square meal." We saw more than
one brother quili laying in supplies to
last him for a week to come, or to fill
a vacuum of a week's emptiness. The
press gang unanimously voted the
affair a success, and determined to go
to every one gotten up there in fu
ture, if they have to go every week.
After dinner Major R. P. Caldwell,
ofTrentoii, ex-Congressman from this
district, was called on, when he made
a short, pithy and appropriate speech.
He endorsed the viewsoTGen. Atkins,
as did the audience generally.

this season as usual.
Jn speaking of the purchase of the
Mississippi Central Railroad by the
Illinois Central Railroad Company,
the McComb City Intelligencer says :
"We understand that as soon as this
sale is fully consummated which will
require some three months time the
entire line between New Orleans and
Cairo will be placed under one man
agement, extensive improvements
made, and nothing left undone that is
necessary to develop the country
through which the road passes, and
to make it the great highway connect

We also learn that the new corpora
tion will be known as the Chicago, St
Louis and New Orleans Railroad.

It is reported in town that a young
man named Coleman McCollum was
horse-whipped by another young man
named Knock Morgan, at Brawn's

living two miles west of town, died
last Sunday at the advanced age of
ninety-two years. She was probably
the oldest womaoiiving in the county,

remained very active, walking the
distance from her house to this place
every three or four weeks. Mrs
Churchwell and her husband were the
first couple married iu Maury county,
Tenuessee, as was afterwards found
out by referring to the records of the
county, to determine whether or not
she was legally married, in order to
have a pension granted. There is an

We copy the following from the
Railway Mail tor this month. Mr
Garrison is well known and has nu
merous friends here, he having for
merly run as mail agent and postal
clerk to this place.
J. T. Garrison had bad luck the
other day, and as troubles never come
singly, his was, of course, double.
His run is from Louisville to Nash
ville, but after leaving Bowling Green
he deadheads into Nashville, a dis
tance of seventy-two miles.
On the morning in question he was
very sleepy and went back into a coach,
where he got comfortably fixed and
was soon sound asleep so sound that
he never awoke when the train arrived
at Nashville and stopped twenty min
utes for breakfast Even the sonorous
voice of Liuck's porter, yelling out
"Linck's hotel, twenty minutes, all on
the table," failed to aronse him, and
he slept, the train moved -on, and at
Brentwood, twelve miles beyond his
destination, the conductor made an
attack on the Garrison, which after a
few rounds and an explanation of the
situation, an unconditional surrender
was effected, and the Garrison was
side-tracked at Owen's Switch, seven
teen miles from Nashville.
How to get back was a question
that bothered J. Thomas but yery lit
tle. There was the pike and his legs
were long, so, combining the means
with the facilities, he headed his col
umn for Nashville, and "moved off
like a thing of life." The day was
hot, the pike dusty, and each succeed
ing mile-post seemed farther away from
the last one. All the wagons were
going the other way, with the excep
tion of one that left the switch about
twenty minutes before hiiu, and he soon
despaired of overtaking that one.
About half the distance had been
made, when John Thomas neared a
farm-house, and close by in a shady
nook a spring-house. The inviting
shade and clear water tempted him to
halt for rest and refreshment, and he
headed for the spring-house, where he
was destined to meet with a still greater
disaster than any that had previously
overtaken him. There was a bumble
bee nest at the side of the spring house,
and just before our hero got there two
boys had attacked the nest, and the
bees were active. 1 hat ought to ex
plain the whole thing, but to summa
rize; the Garrison, was of course, un
prepared for an attack and again sur
prised. The bees poured out in col
umns and struck blows quick and
decisive. J. T. Garrison, captain.

"moved off like a thing of life," and
arrived at Nashville at 2 p.m., where
the wounds were dressed and the inner
man cared for. Garrisou gets out at
all the larger towns now and asks what
town it is.

In the col l embrace of death ;
Closed are the beaming eyes.

Her hands folded on her breast.
She has reached Heaven's bright shoro.
Ah, beautiful home of rest.
School-mates, no more will she be
With you. counting long school hours ;
No more will she reap earth's thorns.
No more its sunshine and flowers.
No more with smiles of gladness.
Will she her little friends greet.
But in Heaven she's waiting
You all, and anxiously to meet.
Grieve not dear friends for her.
She is from earth's sorrow free.
Among angels is singing.
Waiting and watching for thee.
