Up to last evening over eight thou

delivered by Messrs. Hallstrora,

The following should have appear

to reach us on time :
Como, Henry Co., Tenn., )
April 21, 1878. j
E'litor Exrlmnqe-:
I write you in accordance with my
own suggestion to you. I left Milan
the 16th inst., in company with my
friend D. D., and traveled out via
Shade's bridge and thence on up
through the Spring Creek country in
Weakly county, touching the second
day the Spring Creek cotton mills,
owned by Messrs DiuwiJJie, and we
were there permitted to go through
and examine its machinery and its
various departments. It is quite an
extensive manufactory and would be
a big acquisition to our town or any
other to'tn or city. W had the
pleasure of forming the acquaintance
of all the members of the firm, whom
we found to be affable, nice gentlemen.
From thence we proceeded on to Paris
and from Paris to Buckhanon, in the
extreme north and east part of Henry
county. There we met with some
nice gentlemen of whom I may men
tion Major Tom White, Col. Jo. Wil
son and. my old friend Bob Wilson of
old time tobacco peddling notoriety.
We then decamped and went out
northwest to Conyersville, which place
has evidently seen a much better day,
but which has some amiable citizens,
of whom we only formed a limited
passing acquaintance. I called on
my old friend Rufus Ward, of war in
timacy, but found that he had been
sent to Hickman by the Sheriff for
the notorious Rhea, who committed
several nameless outrages some time
since, near Conyersville, of which
you remember, no doubt, of seeing
published in various papers not long
since. The community around that
section seem to be greatly moved with
a spirit of revenge, and I feel satisfied
they will call into requisition Judge
Lynch's services to try him. From
thence we went down the Kentucky
line and back via Cottage Grove to
this place. We found throughout our
trip the farmers very much discour
aged on account of the low prices ot
tobacco and the universal damage to
wheat Wefecl certain that wheat will
not make an average of more than
half a yield, and many crops we saw
can't makeanything. We don't think
we saw in our whole trip a single crop
that did not have rust upon it more
or less. My friend D. says that we
started with a thousand mile ticket,
and he feels very much like the las.
numbers are about punched ; but I
tell him that I expect to have bim a
new ticket ready by Monday morning.
Mr H. H. Lovelace has shown us to
day his fine stock, of which he is
proud and which would compare very
favorably with any of Kentucky's
best. He has improved short-born
cattle, imported Berkshire hogs, aud
model imported horses, and is making
more money raising stock, Ac., than
our best farmers are raising cotton.
Como is beautifully located with a fine
surrounding country, and all it needs
is the. Evansville railroad, which
should run from Milan to this place,

Our farmer friends are still troubled
with the gloomy wheat prospect. On
every side we hear of the rust and the

We hope, though, it will not be so
bad as they fear. We have heard of

An Astonishing Fact.
A large proportion of the American
people are to-day dying from the ef
fects of Dyspepsia or disordered liver.
The result of these diseases upon the
masses ot intelligent and valuable peo
ple is most alarming, making life act
ually a burden instead of a pleasant
existence of enjoyment and usefulness
as it ought to be. Ihere is no good
reason for this, if you will only throw
aside prejudice and skepticism, take
the advice of druggists and your
friends, and try one bottle of Green's
August Flower. Your speedy relief
is certain. Millions of bottles of this
medicine have been given away to try
its virtues, with satisfactory results in
every case. You can buy a sample
bottle for 10 cents to try. Ihree
doses will relieve the worst case. Pos
itively sold by all Druggists on the
Western Continent. For sale by W.

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 many
months ago. I can say that I have
spent as pleasant a winter in Milan
aud 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 Belling so many
goods that I had to go after another
stock, and had to get a larger store
room. You will find us at Williams,
Smith & Co.'b old stand where we will
sell goods cheaper than the cheapest. I
