"The lurtioas fruits of spring are here. And savory odors fill the air. While strawberries and cream appear. With shortcake, oa the hill of fare-" School's out ! Lovely weather again. J)r. Crawford will be here next week. Ourxlored friend's are building a large frame church in the southern part of town. Our friend R. E. Edwards present ed us with a splendid trout last week. He wis a beauty. Every liberal advertiser in the Exchange is doing a big business. Do you see the point ? The largest and sweetest strawlier- ries we have 6een were preKentcd to us last week by Mr Iliue. They came from Medina. We have heard that h alight frost was visible here yesterday morning. Some say that it snowed a little a few days since, too. The Methodist church has recently been greatly improved by the appli cation of two or three coats of white paint on the outer walls. The young men of Milan have issu ed invitations to a hop to come off at Odd Fellow's Hall to ni-rht. It pro niiscs to be a pleasant affair. New carpets have been bought for the aisles in the Baptist church. They are quite au improvement, and stop much noise during the service. Mrs Cruse will give an ice cream supper to-night. Parties attending the hop will bear this in mind. Tick ets can be procured at the hall. Our readers w ill remember that the special election for constable of this district takes place next Saturday. Turn out and elect a good man. Hon J. D. C. Atkins has our thanks for important public documents. The General will be unanimously re elect ed iu his district, and we are glad of it. We rjeglected the last two weeks to call attention to G. G. Green's new local advertisements. His medicines are very popular here, and deservedly so. A drunken Irishman was so full of liappiness and bad whisky last Satur day that In? made his bed on the side walk on Front How, and was perfectly satisfied. Let the voters remember that W. II. Algee, whose name is announced in another column, is a candidate for Constable at the special election ntxt Satuiday. A " norther'' blvw up here last Sun day afternoon and continued during Monday. Snow, ice and frost were " enjoyed" in several states north of us on Saturday. An Ohio farmer is corresponding with parties here with the view of buying a farm. Wc will welcome him and hundreds of others. We need more farmers around Milan. Mrs Duffy offers some fine bargains in our local notices. She receives new goods every week, and sells at wonderfully low rates. Read them, and you are sure to buy from her. Rev J. R. Gray will hold service at Clark's Hall.next Sundny morning and evening. This will be his last visit here for some time, as he will visit Europe during the summer months. Our friend George Cade has cleared seveatyfive dollars on three-fourths of an acre of strawberries, and is not yet done picking. If he had put it in cotton, he would have wade about five or ten dollars. Up to last evening about 50,000 quarts of strawberries had been ship ped from this place. Next week, w ben the season will be over, we will publish the exact figures. We may have a few other thoughts to add. . Read Jordan's great big new adver tisement. He is doing a rousing bus iness, and we are not surprised at it, when it is known Eh Stone, Dave Mills, and John Townesare salesmen, and a big advertisement is run in the Exchange. Crump, the jeweler, has moved into Brown & Dickson's store, where he has added a beautiful new stock of goods in his line to the elegant lot he had on hand. We are glad to learn that he Is doing a good business. Read his locals and call on him. Col. W. W. Vaughaa has been re quested to address the graduating class at Bethel College, McKenzie, on tie 6th of June, and has kiadly consented to do so. He is a popular and able speaker, and will interest his audience. No doubt a crowded house will turn out to hear him. Zeilin is prosecuting Thedford for making and selling Simmons' Liver Regulator. Their attorneys spent one day tiere last week lakingdepositious. Thed ford's preparation, at any rate, is the one which sells best here. How ever, w suppose there is little if any difference in the medicine. The firm of B. F. Smith & Co., Memphis, has been dissolved, and the business will be settled by Mr Smith. Mr Smith is now connected with the bouse of H, B Howell Co., And has charge of the office and produce department. We take pleasure in recommending the firm to our friends as worthy of their patronage, known for integrity and business capacity, and large capital. See their adver ment in this paper. By reference to our announcement column, it will be seen that Mr J. C. McDearmon, of Trenton, is a candi date for Attorney General of this cir cuit. He is well-known to our read ers as a lawyer of learning and ability, and one who attends carefully and promptly to all business entrusted to him. He U a gentleman who mixes well with th people, and has many friends wherever he is known. He will be a favorite in this part of the district. as saaa - mi. Railroad Items. I Fitzgerald and his crew have just laid a lot of new rail on the L. & N. road north of tovn. j Ragsdale and his force are putting i down a fine steel rail track along the line of the Central road here. j Clinton Democrat 9th: It is thought that the extension of the C.,St L. & N. O. railroad from Fillmore, the pres ent terminus of the road, to a point opposite Cairo, w ill bo completed with in a month from now. A change of schedule took eflect on both our roads hist Sunday, for details of which see the time table on this page. . The accommodation train will run between Memphis and McKenzie iu future, connecting with traius on the Nashville, Chattanooga fc St. Louis road. We learn that the L. & N. road will, at an early day, put a fast fruit express train on this division. This will be a great accommodation to fruit and vegetable raisers, and a wonder ful saving in freights. Both our roads are willing to do all in their power to help build up business along their lines. " Milan is the best ship ping jKiint in America." Personal. Deputy Sheriff lug was in town yes-1 terday. Hop Johnson, of the Memphis Led-1 ger; and Col. 1-lywn, of the L. fc N. i R. R.. passed down the roa 1 last i Friday. Prof. Finney and laniily and Prof. Paschal will leave for Middle Tennes see to-morrow morning. We lose good citizens when they leave. Cttpt. J. C. McDearmon, Gibson county's favorite for Attorney Gener al, was in Umi ye-terday, looking af ter his interests in the canvass. Mr J. H. Hefley, a prominent can didate1 for Sheriff of this county, spent several days here last week. He is making many friends in his rounds. Col. W. W. Vui.hftn, Haywood's popular candidate for Congress, hon-o-cd tis with a visit last Saturday. He fays he is fast gaining strength all over the district. Commodore Doak, of the Nashville American, passed here last Tuesday, on his way to Jackson, where he was to deliver an address to the Memorial Society yesterday. Mr JiajjV'D. Came, candidate for County Clerk, paid us a visit last Monday. He is a most pleasant and accomplished gentleman, and is fully competent to fill the office for which he aspires. And he is making a fine nice, too. Col. Vangtian Serenaded. Last Saturday Col. Vaughan, can didate for. Congress in iVJs district, was the guest of the City Hotel. Hear ing of it, our excellent brass band turned out at night and serenaded him, giving several beautiful pieces in fine style. The music attracted quite a crowd in a few minutes, when the Colonel was called out. ' He made a happy talk of about twenty, minutes, but did not discuss questions of differ erence between himself and rival can didates. At the close of his remarks, the ladies present presented him with a beautiful boquet, which drew from him some most eloquent and beautiful remarks. We will merely, .hint that the Colonel is a w idower, and that he loves all the fine-looking women he sees, and consequently he cant't help saying sweet things to them, especially w hen they give him so good an op portunity. Strawberry Festival. A strawberry, cake and" ice cream supper vttl be served at Clark's Hall to-morrow (Friday) night, for the benefit of the Methodist church here. Committees have been appointed to make all necessary arrangements, and a good supper is promised. The small sum of ten cecals for grown persons and five cents for children will be col lected at the door, and twenty-five cents will then secure a plate of ice cream, strawberries and cake. The money goes toward building a fence around the church lot. We hope to see a large crowd out ; and we hope, further, that each person will eat sev eral tiii-os. MILAN, TENNESSEE, MAY 1G, 1878. TREXTOX. The Simons plaved two or three nights in Trenton last week. The Mirror thinks the invention and introduction of so much labor saving machinery into the country is the cause of so many idle tramps, and proceeds to argue the question. Our opinion is that these " gentlemen of the road" are nearly every one of them too lazy and mean to work, and would rather beg and steal for a living. At least, that is the exper ience of our people around here. There is plenty of work for them, if they would go at it. From the Trenton Slirror. We regret to learn that Prof. Bu cliaaan died last Sunday. He was a popular teacher and a pood citizen. Alston Bailey, one of our wealthiest citizens, was in town last Monday. He informs us that he never had in his house, during his whole life, an almanac, book, newspaper or a quart of whisky. The following persons compose the Democratic Executive Committee for Gibson county: John H. GIuss, chair man; A. Jordan, Milan, W. I. Mc. Farland, Humboldt, John Martin, Bradford, W. C. Kelly, Yorkville. Rev. J. Braden, President of the Central Tennessee College, Professors A. K. Sencer and 11. lv. Bennett, of Fisk University, and Dr. Phillip, President of Baptist College (all eoloi ed institutions) at Nashv.lle, propose to hold a Teachers Institute for the colored schools of Gibsou county, at Trenton, on Fritlay and Saturday the 14th and 15th of June next of which a programme will be out soon. From the Trenton Herald The residence of Columbus Foster, two miles west of Rutherford, was de stroyed by fire since our last issue. Monday last Oliver Spruell (color ed), who hailed from Brownsville, was arrested here on a charge of stealing flour, meal, corn, &c, from one of the Brownsville mills. He has been carry ing cn his stealing for several months. He was conveyed to Brownsville for trial. According to the distribution of the Peabody school fund, made Monday last. Hon. Ijoou Trousdale states that the Trenton schools are entitled to the following amounts: Pealx)dy high school, SKO; colored school, 8100. Only two towns in the State receive larger amounts than ours Clnrksviile ami Lebanon. They receive 5500 e,lcj, A Teachers Institute will beheld at Bradford Station Friday and Satrr- day, June 7th and 8th. Local com mittee on arrangements: John Martin, Roliert Bradford, R. A. Meadows, Willianj Camplx'll and A. J. Alien. On invitation, reception, A-c J. N. Alexander, Harvey Holmes, J. G. Phipps, J. C. Gilibs tun! A. J, Little. Programme will be made out iu due time. IIOiSOEOT. From the Humboldt Journal. J. M. Mitchell, of the Oak Dr. Grove neighborhood, is suffering very much with dropsy in his feet and legs. Extensive preparations are now be ing made for a grand concert, on 15th of J tine, at the expiration of the school. There seems to be a fatality among the cats iu and about this place. They are dying with something like cholera. Rev. W. G. Leonard was installed as pastor of the Cumberland Presby terian church last Sunday. The in stallation sermon was preached with great force, and to a large audience, by Kev. A. E. Cooper. One day this week, while the bridge force of the M. & O. R. R. was work ing on the trestle at the river, their scaffold gave way, precipitating the men about 20 feet, infliuting painful wounds, but no limbs were broken. Mr. John Duffey's little Ixiy wasin a crib shucking corn a few days ago, when he felt something nibbling at his big toe. Upon pulling his foot from the shui-ks, he found a. large chicken snake hanging toit. Like a brave lad he killed the snake and went on his way rejoicing. Closing Exercises of the College. Last Tuesday night the spring ses sion of Milan College closed with pub lic exercises at Clark's Hall. The programme comprised essays, decla mations, recitations and music, and was highly entertaining to the large audience present. Miss Mamie Lopez, being the only graduate, received the graduating degree. Her valedictory was wtll-wrftteu, well-delivered and appropriate. She is an excellent reader, and charms her hearers with her quiet dignity and graceful ease of manner. The Harrison, Donnell & Co. prizes were awarded to Misses JJora Sims, Addie Ware and Lizzie Coleman, and Messrs Elbert Hunt, G. G. Wood and W. A. Townes. The Dictionary prizes were won by Misses AdJie Ware and Annie Coleman. Dr Jordan presented the prizes with an appropriate address. . Professors Fin ney and Paschal made appropriate farewell addresses. We, in common with many others, regret very much to lose them from the town. They have made many friends here, are ex cellent teachers, and will honor any community where, they may live. Having much better oilers elsewhere, they have concluded to change tlieir location, for which no one can bhuae them. The Milan String Band made music fr the occasion, auder the lead ership of Prof. Gladney, who is a thorough musician, and we doubt whether they conld have procured bet ter jausic in West Tewjaanoe, tOlXTTXEWS. The apple crop in this county will be short. The weather the past few days has been rough on cotton. A picnic was given at Pickettville last Saturday, and we learn a large crowd was present. An interesting session of the Gibson County Teachers' Institute was held at Dyer Station ou the 3d and 4th inst. The wheat prospect during the past week has greatly improved in this sec tion, and some of our farmers new think a pretty fair crop will be made. A strawberry festival was given at Rutherford on the evening of the 3d inst. Muoic, speaking, courting, etc., was enjoyed heartily by those present. Messrs. Kincy and Marcum, with the assistance of several others, euc- ceeded in killing six minks in a corn crib at Mr. Kincy's residence, three miles east of here, last Thursday. These varmints had slayed numerous chickens there recently, and were a nuisance. A teachers' institute will be held at Pickettville to-morrow and Saturday. A large number of people will, no doubt, attend. The address of wel come will be delivered by. J. C. Tharj)e, Esq. Hon Leon Trousdale, State Superintendent, Miss Clara Con way, of Memphis, Hons G. B. Black, J. T. Carthel, J. C. McDearmon, W. M. Hall, and others will be present and participate in the exercises. IIFXTIAGDOX. Leech, the Republican nominee for Sheriff, is opjosed to negro juries. Ridgeley, editor of the Republican and candidate for Register, is strongly in favor of them. Now, what are the Republicans of Carroll going to do about ii? A little five year old son of Frank Gibson, five miles east of Huntingdon, while playing with a " navy six" ljst Sunday morning, was fatally shot in the head. Why will people allow fire arms to lie loosely around where chil dren can get .hold of them? The Republicans iu Carroll held a convention last Monday week to nom inate candidates fir county officers, with the following result: for Sheriff, I. F. Leach; County Court Clerk, Elij ih Falkner; Register, E. G. Ridgely; Trustee, Frank Rogers. Levi McEwen, of Huntingdon, was tender ed the nomination for Circuit Court Clerk but declined. This leaves W. B. Gi izz ird, the present efficient clerk, without opposition. On the first Monday the Carrol) Democracy wet iu convention in Huntingdon and appointed the fol lowing delegates to the State Judicial Convention : L M. Beckerdite, B. G. Ezzcll, -11. C. Townes, W. M. Wright, John Warlick, E. T. Bohan non, J. II. Hillsman, Newt. Lank ford, Wm. Johnson, J. W. Phillips, I. M. L. Baker, and W. S. Stephens. They were requested to vote upon the first ballot iu the nominating con vention at Nashville, on the 20th inst., for the present Supreme bench for Supreme court judges for this state, after the first ballot, if no nomination should be then made, the delegation will exercise a sound discretion. From the Huntingdon Vindicator. We notice one solemn, solitary Af rican at work grading the streets. He is slow but sure, and gradually im proves our town, 7 he case of Geo. W. Harris vs the Louisville and Memphis Railroad, in which Harris sues for ten thousand dollars damages was set for trial at next term of the court. Marriage licenses issued during the past week J. II. Gray and S. C. Phipps. Frank Patterson and Bettie Bell. R. J. Bennett and A. E. Phipps. E. G. Ridgley, candidate for Reg ister, proprietor of the Republican and Post Master is an open and avow ed advocate of negro juries in this county. " His paper, the Republican, takes a bold stand for negro juries and Ridgley, upon this issue, expects to get the entire colored vote of this county. E. G. Ridgley has resigned the of fice ef postmaster at this place. He received the nomination for Register Monday, and thinking it might look greedy to want so many offices, gave up the one in which there was the least pay. We hear there are several applicants for the position thus made vacant, and know for a certainty that Miss Wilhella Hawkins and Joe Bre vard are. Petitions were circulated yesterday, and many men signed them all. The perquisites of the office amouut to 540 per month. From the IlunticrJon Keambtiran. Strawberries from Milan are sold in town now. Kyle's chapel, about six miles east of town, will be dedicated on the first Sunday in J une. Many will probably go from here. We have heard that two of our lead ing citizens propose building a new Methodist church at this place. We hope they are iu earnest. We were sorry to hear of the pain ful accident which happened to our friend E-q. J. W. Roberts, of Cedar Grove, hist Monday. HehadEtarted to town and come some distnnce, when his horse threw him, breaking his arm and severely braking him. LOCAL XOTICES. A Fine Watch Cheap!

Call and see before you buy, at R. J. Robertson's. An AsJwmishing Fact. A large proportion of the American people are to-day dying from the efi fects of Dyspepsia or disordered liver. The result of these diseases upon the masses ot intelligent and valuable peo jle is most alarming, making life act ually a burden instead of a pleasant existence of enjoyment and usefulness as it ought to be. There 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.
