He served the people with great abil

He is in full sympathy with the peo

A few Pertinent Questions.
Editor Exchange : Will some
ono " behind the scenes" inform the
people what pressing present necessity
there is for grading and jJ.anlcinj Jack
sou alley from Main street to John
McDonald's residence? Whether or
not the grading ami cutting down
Main street is being done to enable
this work to be done on Jackson alley
spoken of? If Jackson alley is ren
dered in any way difficult of travel,
what is the cause? And if it is not
caused by a certain party cutting it
down in the past six months? Why,
instead of planking and grading Jack
son alley, the .Doard does not order
the completion of the plank walks on
Third and Firctand other streets, and
on Railroad avenue? Is the making
of a plank road oit about 200 feet of
Jackson alley a part of the old scheme
of cobble-stoning the same alley,
vhii-h icns li farted by the Jimird uh:m(
';;.'.'( ;i vmuthi vo? And, lastly,
n hellier the people living ia the out
skirts of Mibn have any rights which
ought to be respected ? The writer
of this does not wish any controversy,
but only wishes "to know, you know."
Will someone answer?

We understand that the County
Court has frequently madeappiopiia
iieis for the supported' pen-ons who
refuse to go to the county po; r hou.-e.
We think, with all due respect for the
action of the County Court, that.'iteh
appropriations are an unneeo -sary ex

A Want Siipliel.
For a long time Milan has been 'n
great need of a merchant tailoring es

form the public that Mr John G.
Griiiin, late of Kentucky, has opened
an establishment fit the Red Store,
next door to Hallstrorn's where he is
prepared to cut aud make suits in the
latest and best styles. He v, ill give
special attention to country cutting,
renovating and repairing, and will
guarantee handsome fits. He has
had long experience in the business,
and we hope he will meet with the
encouragement he deserves.
The Xattonal Prohibitionist.
The temperance people are to have

Rain, rain, rain, without much

rust. If .nothing prevent?, after this
there will be a large crop. Straw

Those who are in the business say
they arc very fine.

E. Flake, of Lexington, was iu
town yesterday, and is strongly in fa
vor of the proposed narrow guage
railroad from here to Lexington. He
savs the "people of Henderson county
will donate SG0.000 to the road, and
that he thinks Carroll should be will
ing to give 310,000. The road would
be of immense benefit to Clarksburg
and Lexington, but in our honest
opinion it. would deal a death blow to
Huntingdon, as our principal trade
e'omcs from Henderson county.

To My Friends and Patrons !
I wish to express my many thanks,
not only for the patronage which you
have so liberally extended to me ; but
for the kindness and sociability which
you have shown to the stranger who
came into your midst not man)'
months ago. I can say that I have
spent as pleasant a winter in Milan
and vicinity as I ever hope to spend
anywhere. Now I have thought,
where a winter can be made so pleas
ant with its gloomy days, how nice
it will be in summer, when the trees
and flowers bloom, and I had such
good luck here in selling so many
goods that I had to go after another
stock, ami had to get a larger store
room. You will find us at Williams,
Smith it Co.'s old stand where we will
se ll goo Is cheaper than the cheapest. I
am not waiting for large profits, be
cause I will sell low and turn the
money over and make it come in that
I have a idee stock of Dry Goods,
White Goo-ls, Grenadines, Embroid
eries, Irish Linen, Table Linen, Crash,
Lawns, OvC.
I have also a large stock of Cloth
ing. Its equal is not to be founel this
fide of Memphis. We are manufac
turing a great deal of Clothing our
selves, therefore have the advantage
above others that have to give the
manufacturers any profits.
