Our friend George Cade has cleared

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

roads are willing to do all in their
power to help build up business along
their lines. " Milan is the best ship

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.
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

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

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. 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. Three
doses will relieve the worst case. Pos
itively sold by all Druggists on the
Western Continent. For sale by W.
H. Coley, Milan. Tenn.
If you want the best whisky, you
will have to go to Haynes & Rhodes',
