Tramps might be making money
here picking strawberries; but we
have not heard of a single one at it.
They have been asked, but all decline.
They had rather beg and steal. ,
Jack F. Jones, who is a candidate
for Register, resigned his position as

An election will lie held on Saturday,
18th of May, to fill the vacancy.
In our announcement column will

He is fully competent and every way

A very pleasant strawberry and ice

A large number were present and all

We thank Mrs Cruse for an invita

accomplished gentlemen. They will
be missed.

We understand that our Baptist
friends are to have a sociable at their
church to-night, for members only.
The object is to give the members of
the congregation an opportunity to
become better acquainted with each
other. These meetings are quite fre
quently held in the larger cities, and
arc a means of doing much good.
The closing exercises of Milan Col
lege will take place next Tuesday
night at Clark's Hall, beginning at 8
o'clock, and will consist of essays, rec

offered by Messrs Harrison, Donnell

Mrs Lola Montez Rusk gave an
elocutionary entertainment at Clark's
Hall last Monday night, reading a
number of familiar and difficult poems
during the evening. Her audience
was not as large as Ehe deserved, for
she really is a good reader, barring a
slightly imperfect pronunciation of a
few words Xoo York, for instance.
She is a charming, graceful lady, and
pupils should learn the beauties of
elocution very readily under so pleas
ant and accomplished a lady. She
went from here to McKenzie.
A county democratic convention
was held iu Trenton last Monday to
appoint delegates to the judicial con
vention at Nashvilla. Jno. II. Glass,
of the Mirror, was made chairman,
and the other editors present secretar
ies. The lawyers of this district and
Esq. Jordan were appointed delegates;
B. IL Foster, No. 1 ; J- W.' Altaian

Burnett and J. IL Tharp, No. 18.
The delegates were instructed to vote

county solid, a majority ruling. CoL
Glass was made Chairman of the
county committee.
A party of our citizens jumped on
the work train and went to the river
last Thursday to enjoy a day's sport
with the rod and line. After a hard
day's work, with moderate " luck,"
they went back to the train, expect
ing to be home to supper. But rail
road trains are not always on time.
On account of a missed connection,
the work train laid there till late at
night. Becoming desperate, and
having an important engagement to
fill, one of them struck out afoot, but
arrived home very tired, muddy and
hungry, too late. The others started,
got lost, and arrived next morning
about five o'clock. The whole party
"enjoyed" fisherman's proverbial luck.
Mrs R. Y. Moore has again placed
us under obligations for plendid new
Irish potatoes.' .
Mrs Guion has our thanks for a lot
of Irish potatoes. They were extra
large and good.
Since our last issue Mr Lamar
brought us a box of most excellent
strawberries. He has worked won
ders here in the fruit and vegetable
line. m
Major Hallstrom presented us last
Saturday with the finest ripe cherries
of the season, as usual. He doesn't
allow any one to get ahead of him
with cherries and grapes.
Mrs T. J. Harrison has the thanks
of the Exchange office for a splendid
treat of strawberries and cream, ac
companied with delicious cake. It
was a rare treat, and all hands en
joyed it very much. They desire to
return her their tincerc thanks.
Dr Harris havingperssstently slight
ed this editor heretofore in the distri
bution of his strawberries, we have
found a much fairer and better friend
in bis excellent wife, who List Mon
day evening sent us a gallon of the
sweetest berries we have yet had this
season. The Doctor's are sour any
how, and we hope he won't send us
any of bis at least, not so long as
Mrs II. is so kind as to remember us
in so beautiful a manner. May her
crops never fail, and her charity never
lessen. The women always were our
best friends, and we are proud of it.
Railroad Items.
Twenty-fn e c.ises of strawbri ries
were shipped from bere to New Or
leans last Monday.
. The two million additional bond bill
for the completion of the Cincinnati
Southern railroad was defeated in Cin
cinnati Friday by a majority of two
hundred and nineteen, in a total vote
of over twenty two thousand.
During the past two weeks the fruit
business of the Express Company has
been so lively here that it required the
time of assistant superintendent Fish
er, route agents Taggart and Minor,
agent Hine, clerk Neal, porter George,
and about one dozen roustabouts.
Mess? s M. J. O'Brien, General Super
intendent, Win. Willis, Superinten
dent of this department, T. W. Leary,
Mr O'Brien's Secretary, and Mr
Nunemacher, agent at Paducah, were
also here last Tuesday afternoon. In
another year or two headquarters will
have to be established here maybe.
By agreement with the first mort
gage bondholders and trustees a meet
ing was held and a reorganization of
the Paducah and Memphis railroad
company effected, the new name being
Memphis, Paducah and Northern.
The new company, it is said, will
make an effort to complete the remain.

the officers of the new company; II.
W. Smithers.of Louisville, president;
Ex. Norton, of New York, vice pres
ident; and M. Mousarrat, oft aducah,
general manager.
Our Little Bonanza.
Over thirty-one thousand quarts of
strawberries had been shipped from
here up to last evening, and we are not
near through yet. The crop is short,
on accountof recent rainsbut we think
it will run about fifteen hundred quarts
to the acre clearing say f 150 to
each acre. The Central road has put
on a fruit train since our last, and
carries fruit at seventy-five cents per
hundred pounds to Chicago, putting
it on the market as soon as jf shipped
by Express. This will be a saving
of oue dollar and twenty-five cents
per hundred pounds about one and
oae-fourth cents per quart' At the
close of the season we will give figures
in detail.
Painful Accidents.
Last Friday while working with a
stallion, Mr R. B. Shepherd fell, pull
ing the horse over on him. He was
very painfully hurt, having his left
collar bone and two or three ribs iu
his right side broken. We learn that
the damage will not be fatal.
On the same day a little daughter
of Mr C. P. Haun met with a severe
accident by a window eash falling on
her left hand, crushing the bones ter
ribly. It took two strong men to
raise the sash from her hand.
Dr Jordan attended both cases and
gave them euipcal attention.
A Milan Lady Appointed Mis
sionary to China.
We clip from last week's Western
Methodist the following letter of Dr.
Kelley, Assistant Secretary of the
Board of Missions of the M. E.
Church, South. This being the home
of the young lady it will be read with
interest by her many friends here,
who will be a little surprised and very
much gratified to learn that she has
concluded to take such a noble part
in the Master's work. Dr Kelley is
in error when he states that she is the
daughter of a Methodist preacher.
Her father is a Presbyterian, but
worships with the Methodist congrega
tion here. One of her brothers, as
stated, is a preacher in California, and
the Other is .Mavoiuof-MiLin and-
lawye; of extensive business.
After months of prayer and care
fulness a woman has been found for
our China Mission, who, as we be
lieve, combines those rare character
istics which will fit her for the work
linguistic talent, which has been test
ed in the acquisition of English, Lat
in, Greek and German mental equi
poise and sufficient individuality to
enable her to be aggressive youth,
which fits her for learning to speak a
new and difficult language, yet exper
ience in the very field which most of
all others would prepare her for this
work. For two years she has been a
teacher in our New Hope Indian
Boarding-school. Dr Guilford Jones,
Dr Sullivan, of Sardis, Miss., and
Brother Shapard, of New Hope
School, give us every ground for con
fidence. Above all, when her owu
letter came, its simple reading before
the Board brought conviction to ev
ery mind that " this is the woman."
A like effect, it will be seen, was pro
duced on the mind of Bishop McTyeire
when the correspondence, with the
recomiiKaniatiou of the Board, was
submitted to hiin.

Miss Lockie Rankin is the daughter

"Though silent, I am by no means

the right Christian view of the work
and the right spirit in the write.

angels, and when that war shall end

Accidentally Kilted.
Editor Exchange : ,
On Sunday morning Mr Horace
Bratcher, who lives ten miles west of
Milan, betweeu Humboldt and ElJud,
was shot and killed accidentally by a
gun in the hands of his brother, Frank
Bratcher. They had been fishing
nea; Moore & Kaufman's mill on Sat
urday and staid all night, and were
returning home, when Mr Frank
Bratcher's gun was entangled in some
bushes and discharged, the . load en
tering Horace Bratcher's back and
coming out just below his heart, caus
ing immediate' death. Horace was
a good boy and leaves a large number
of friends and acquaintances to mourn
his loss. He was about twenty-two
years old, and, although he was cut
off just in the bloom of manhood, we
should submit to it as an act of Divine
Broke Jail.
A farmer named King got into a
difficulty with an Irishman named
Dennis last Saturday and cut him in
the face. He 'was fined twenty-five
dollars and locked up. During the
night, he and four tramps got tired of
the " sweat box," tore a plauk from
the ceiling, and then tore out
some brick in the gable end,
'making their escape. The tramps
had that day refused to work and
were locked up as a punishment.
We learn that King has since sold
his traps and gone to Arkansas.

A Remarkable Result.
It makes no difference how many
Physicians, or how much medicine
you have tried, it is now an establish
ed fact that German Syrup is the only
remedy which hs given complete sat
isfaction in severe cases of Lung Dis
eases. It is true there are yet thou
sands of persons who are predisposed
to Throat and Lung Affections, Con
sumption, Hemorrhages, Asthma, Se
vere Colds settled on the Breast,
Pneumonia, Whooping Cough, &c,
who have no personal knowledge of
Boschee's German Syrup. To such
we would say that 50,000 dozen were
sold last year without one complaint.
