It is said the proposed new policy
of the Presiden t is to do away with
all the reservations and Indian agen
ciesand issue bonds for the lands thus
' taken, thus obliging the Indiang
to take up homesteads. We guess
this is a scheme for someboby to
make a pile of money.
We are pained to learn that Mr,
C. P. Bledsoe, forme rly of the Nash
ville Banner, and one of Tennessee's
brightest writers died in Palestine,
Texas, last Sunday. His health was
'bad when he started from Nashville
with the Tennessee Press excursion,
and grew rapidly worse each day, un

above named town, where he receiv

lose Mr. Fletcher from the newspa

business, and we wish him continued

An exchange says: ."Carry the
news to the thick-headed and pro
gressive Solons of the south that the
dog law in Indiana creates a fund out
of which losses of sheep kjlled sby
dogs are regularly paid, und, .besides
that, contributes f 100,000 a year to
the school fund." We see that Jhere
is a growing feeling all over this Btate
in favor of a dog law,' and we wo aid
not be surprised if the next legisla
ture should enact one, if it is possible
to word it so that it would hold wa
ter liefore the supreme court. We.
need it badly.
Again I call the Hiieilim of I he
euple to this institution. I have se
lected teachers of the most iiidixputa
ble ability, and Jong exerience in
good schools, and the school will be
re-organised and managed on an en
tirely different plan from that hereto
fore. The school is under the control
of neither Trustees nor Directors, and
I am responsible for the entire man
agement. I didn't get cheap teach
ers, because as a rule they are worth
less. After a lour correspondence
with forty applicants, Prof. F. W.
Von IS tran tz has been chosen as Prof.
of French, German, Book-keeping
and Mathematics. He is a graduate
of a Prussian College, and has taught
15 years in the University of Nash
ville and in Dr. Ward's Seminary.
Young men and ladies are now offer
ed rare facilities for studying German
under a native teacher, and of ac
quiring a knowledge of Book-keeping
from h practical Book keeper. Prof.
Von Strantz is highly recommended
by the best . authorities, and it has
been with no little difficulty that his
services have been secured.
A lady from Nashville has been se
cured to teach the primary and some
of the preparatory branches. She is
a graduate of two of the best col
leges and a is teacher of experience.
She comes with the highest recom
mendations. But our space in these
columns is limited. Our catalogue
will be ready for distribution on Mon
day next, and will contain full and
thorough information on all subjects
concerning the school. No medals
are offered this year, and there will
be no musio taught at the College.
A partition will be constructed in
the large hall, thus separating the
boys and girls. Boys and girls will
not be allowed to speak to each other
while at the college, or to associate
during the entire term. This rule
will be enforced absolutely and un
And now we appeal to the citizens
of Milan, by the pride which every
man and woman should feel in the
success of a home institution; by the
interest they feel in the general pros
perity of the town, and by the love
they bear their children, to rally to
the cause once more, and help us
make Milan famed for its cultured
boys and girls. Respectfully,
. John C. Langston.
Mr. J. F. Merry, General Western
Passenger Agent of the Illinois Ccn
tral railroad, is making arrangements
to run a grand excursion to San
Francisco in the early part of the
coming winter, via New Orleans, the
Southern Pacific, San Antonio, El
Paso and other points of interest.
The return trip can be made by the
same route, taking in Mardi Gras, or
by the northern route. Write to Mr
Merry for particulars.
A grand excursion to Texas wil
leave Memphis on the 28th and 29th
of August, via the Little Rock road.
Tickets will be good for thirty days,
and stop-over privileges allowed at
various places. Extremely low round
trip rates will be made, and this op-
poitunity should be embraced by al
who wish to visit that country. Ad

A Good Idea.

probably less than three hundred dol
