VOL. X. MILAN, TEXN., AUGUST 11, 1885. NO. 24. Milan CHAPTER II. A Jam, our rreot forefather, who died Home time . wn the inventor of th irt of tnilorimr, e.l'-oUlly o the BwRlIow-tiii! or dreM-nojit ftyle. For proof -of the Utter ee the fhare of a fig leaf. He lived in the country, far awav from Louisville. Ky., in a perfect itate of inno cence, but necessity, the mother of many Inventions, made him do some sewin. It is not known how ood this sewing was. but it is supposed that it lasted as long as the material of which his ga-mentconsitod Thirty-seven years ago the tailoring department of J-Winter Jfc Co., corner of Third and Market Streets, Louisville, Ky., was not much lariror than that of "father" Adam. History does not tell If the lattwwas a "progressive" tailor, but the now immense establishment of J. Winter Jk Co., Louisville, Ky.. proves that they have been and are still so. In 1S48 they began work with Bfteen journeymen tailors, now they employ up wards of two hundred and fifty, male and femnlo and their assistants. It Is In fact THE Merchant Tailor establishment of the South and West, none, butono in Chicago, oqualing It In magnitude, and none having the number of various styles to select from. Be sure to visit it when you come to Louisville on cheap excursion rates to the Great Southern Exposition. J. Winter A Co's second floor of their building is an exposition of goods for men's wear, ar ranged for this special object, and It may be that the great varioty and low prices tempt you to buy. J. Winter Je Co. will make it to your interest to buy from them and make you their cus tomer now and for the future. When once they have your measure, and they keep all paper patterns drafted by this measure, you can. without any expense to you, at any time, even years hence, send for samples of goods and a fashion plate from which to" make n re.ection nf goods and style. Their cutters are the acknowledged "leaders" of fit and style. It will be well if you come to Louisvillein yourold clothes to be driven or go direct toJ. Winter & Co., corner of Third and Market streets, and leave your order for a new suit. A couple duye are all they need . to muke from ireasure all the clothes you want. For days yon can linger in the wide corridors of the Great Southern Exposition to see and be soon. In later years you will tell your chil dren perhops their children what, in the year 1383, you saw in Louisville. Fares are so low that it seems to be a sin not to tak. advantage of the great opportunity offered to see this great Exhibition of the products of human skill; also at the same time avail yourself of the great inducements which J. Winter Sl Co., corner nf Third and Market streets, hold out to prove on you the skill of theL cutters, and show how low they sell goods. RAILROAD TIME-TABLE.

Mrs. John K. Pearce, of Trenton, is visiting relatives here. Mrs. Odie Newhouse spent a day or two here visiting friends last week. Prof. Langston hits returned from Georgia, where ho has been spending his vacation. Our charmiug friend, Miss Evie Brow'n, after a too short visit here, loft for Nashville last Wednesday. Prof. Hooker is sojourning awhile in Chattanooga, where he was called on account of the illness of his brother. He left Texas with many regrets. Mr. W. J. Iline received a tele gram Wednesday notifying him that he was the proud father of a nine and one-half pound son, and that mother and child were doing well. Gen. G. W. Gordon, secretary of the railroad commission, attended the Fruit Growers convention here this week, and assisted that body very much with his well-timed, sensible and conservative advice. Mrs. Mary Sullivan, aged about sixty years, died last Sunday near Atwooil, after a long; illness of con sumption. She died very happy in the hope of going to heaven, and wilh the promise of her children to meet her there. . Our enterprising friend and live merchant, Eli Stone, has taken an in terest in A dry goods store in McKeu- zie, and will probably divide his time between that town and Milan. The people of McKenzie will find him to be a good merchant and a genial, pleasant gentleman to deal with. He is, in fact, one of our best citizens. Jackson Whig:, Our e'lterprising ! P.nil progressive friend, (J. M. Merwin, ! of Medina, was recently appointed by j the Gibson County Court one of a I committee of three, to determine and i report the iudubteinesis of the county i We understand there is considerable interest as to the financial condition I of our sister county and we consider the Court lucky in utilizing the valu- a'.le services of Mr. Merwin, for he i is a clear-headed wide-awake man ( and an excellent fin uieier, as his per , sonal affair amply prove. i' - j. , I.adie,' Men, Courting Men, i You will find the preitie.-t line of anbliy Clothing, in all niile-t and . shinies. iu my btme.

Fires have been pleasant nearly every morning this week. Mrs. Harriet E. McKelvy has our thanks for some of the largest, finest beets we have seen. President Rosaman was the first man in West Tennessee to grow straw berries for market, and he has made a remarkable success of it. Prof. Langston informs us that the prospect is good for a large attendance at the college this fall. The outlook is very encouraging indeed. We have not heard much talk but fruits and vegetables the last two days. It was profitable and enter taining. We hope our people will profit by it. The camp meeting closed at Double Springs Thursday niglit yjth twelve conversions and thirteen accessions to the church, reviving the membership very greatly. The members of the Fruit and Veg etable Growers' Association are an intelligent, earnest body of gentle men, and we believe will do great good for West Tennessee. Thieves broke intp Mr. D. C, Cald well's smoke house one night last week and stole six or eight hams and and a lot of sides, almost clearing out the stock. Dr. Harrison was in town this week looking hungry. We have a call for specimen copies of the Exchange to be sent to Ham. burg, Germany. We trust we may be able to help in adding to the little German colouy here. Better soil and climate will hardly be found. G. W. Sims, Esq., handed us the finest peach, the other day, that we have seen this season. It was the only one which matured on the tree, the othersdroppingoff before ripening. We appreciate it more highly on that account. An ice cream and cake supper was given at Clark's Hall Thursday night for the benefit ot the band. We hear that it was a success financially and socially. The affair wound up with a dance by the young people, which lasted some time. Attention is called to a continued story at the head of the first page of this paper, chapter two of which ap pears this week. The author is a man of talent and genius. It will bj con tinued several weeks yet. Keep up with it and profit thereby. The Le Conte pear was intro duced into West Tennessee from Georgia, by Capt. Loving, through the Porter nursery at Humboldt, and is one of the finest we ever saw. Dr. Blount, formerly of Milan, is thanked for the suggestion of its valut. S. II. Hale, Esq., laid an inquest over the remains of Ike Miller's wile and child last Saturday. A post mortem examination was made by Dis. Bledsoe and Henderson, at the request of the jury, w hen a verdict was found that they came to their death by poison, charging Harry Green with the crime. Green was suit to j:iil to await trial. The cir cumstances are against him, but we believe the evidence is not positive. Trenton Glebe: The Trenton base bull club played a match game with the Millan club on' Tuesday at the l.uter place with the following result; Milan, 34; Trenton, 30. The- Trenton boya inform lis that they never woe treated so nicely, or so royally enter tained as they ' were by the Milau boys, and that while they regretted to bo defeated, there is no club in the cHinty they would rather be beaten by than 'he Milan Club. The W. E. Turner baseball club, of Milan, played the second match game against the C. A. Hill club at Trenton last Wednesday, when the Trenton boys won in a score of 33 to 29. The third game will be played here one day next week. The boys came back well pleased with their en tertainment at Trenton, and want to go again. A very large number of people were in Trenton last Monday. Speeches were made regarding the soldiers' reunion and barbecue on the 30th inst., and energetic preparations are being made to feed and entertain a big crowd. All old soldiers are in vited, regardless of what army they belonged to. The tomahawk has been buried, and we wish to enjoy a peace jubilee. Two little sons of Mr. Wils, Mathis were riding a horse on Main street, near his stable, last Thursday, when they were thrown. One of the little fellows got a broken arm in the fall, and suffered severely. The other boy was bruised somewhat. We hear that other little boys scared the horse. We hope this will be a lesson to them and others. It is not right to frighten horses, especially when any one is ri ding or driving them. An extended report of the pro ceedings of the West Tennessee Hor ticultural Society will be found on the eighth page. That body has done much good work here, and it will show itself in many ways iu the near future. Decidedly the most important action taken was in the direction of a reduc tion of freight rates. The committee was composed of sensible, conserva tivo men, and they spent much time in considering and preparing their re port, which we publish in full. We trust the railway officials will give it the prompt and careful attention it deserves. It is a matter of vital in terest to our producers, as they will be compelled to abandon the growing of some articles if a reduction is not made. Our people are ready and willing to go largely into the business if the railroads will help, and we be lieve they will.

Something New Under the Sun A new erea is dawning upon women Hitherto she has been called upon to sutler the HiSot mankind and her own besides. The frequent and distress ing irregularities peculiar to her sex have long been to her the "direful spring of woes unnumbered." In the mansion of the rich and hovel of pov erty alike woman has been the con staut yet patient victim of a thousand ills unknown toman and without a remedy. 1 "Oh Lord, how long!" in the agony of her soul, hath she cried.

Levi-lurg, Tenn., says: "I loive suld Um wn's r i IVtt'M's fir -mi li'iifi widi en tire I'l.i.i. ii..ii," Supposed Suicide. William Purdy, of New Madrid. Mo., has recently been visiting his sister and brother-in-law, Mr. Wm. Newbill and wife, at Trezevant. While there, we learn, his business house had been closed by creditors, and this weighed on his mind heavi ly. Last Sunday lie went to Mr. Dan Smith and borrowed a rifle, say ing he wished to kill a squirrel. He carried it back to Newbill's, when he went into the hallway, sayine he in tended to clean the gun. While theie he shot himself through the heart, causing instant death. He had re marked some time since that he did not expect to live long, and told how he wished to be dressed for burial. The above account we had from what we believe to be a reliable source. Card of Thanks. To the ladies who aesisted us at our supper hist Thursday night we wish to express our high appreciation for their presence and aid, uud return our thanks for the same. J. D. Loving, Pres. J. E.
