MILAN, TENN., AUGUST 18, 1883.
The Great Southern Exposition, at Louiivills, Ky.. Is drawing people from all part of the
United State; tome even came from Europe, and with great delight do they linger la the long
walk of the immenie building, engage in conversation, sight-seeing, and listening to the de
lightful strains of the brass band of the Seventh New York Regiment. This concert alone Is
worth the price of admission. Friends who had not seen each ether for years met here unex
pectedly and warmly did they grasp each other's hand in friendly meeting, and soon some shady
and cool place found them telling their "haps" and "mishaps" sinee last they met. Often and
long do visiter stay In front of the magnlfioent display made by J. Winter A Co., the great
Southern manufacturers of Men's. Buys' and Children's Clothing. They have taken particular
pains to display one of the branches of their business, vis: Heady-made Men's. Youths') Boys'
and Children's Clothing. In this display Is seen the dignified looking Overcoat suitable to be
worn by a United States Senater or you pastor, the "nobby" silk or satin faced for the "exquis
ite," and the durable and almost everlasting to sait a plain buBiness or working man. In suits
for men you see something really genteel and tasty, but, also those for the "dude" and "swell"
suits which when worn will be noticed owing to their novelty and originality of style. And
those Youths' and Children's suits I of these we shall speak In a future communication. We
stated before that th's department is one of their many. Each Is distinct and separate from the
other, yet, like the wheels in a clock, they all harmonise. In consequence of the many haids,
tailors and seamstesses which J. W inter k Co. employ all the year round, it is an impossibility
for any small establishment, all others in Louisville are small compared with this, to ell good
goods at such low rates as J. Winter k Co. Itisnodoubta fact that in your own town you
have several stores which sell clothing, hut it was purohased ready-made in the East, and there
gotten up for the wholesale trade. We think it advisable that with the purchase of your boys'
clothing you wait till you come to Louisville on one of those Southern Exposition exoursioa
rate tickets, and yon will find in J. Winter - Co.'a store, oorner Third and Market Str eta, the
beau-Ideal of a (rents' and Boys' outfitting store. The variety beieg immense, you will have no
trouble to be suited in color and fitted in site. Wear your old clothes on the trip and let your
carriage driver drive you or oome by street os.r direct to our store, be suited and fitted and then
goto yonr hotel, take a b.th, be shaved, and donned In your new attire enter the dining room
to refresh the inner man. Don't you enjoy reading our communications and see good sense
and good advioe In them t '

Piehaps never to meet on earth.
But there is a Heaven, far above.
That Is filled with joy and mirth.
We then can lift our saddened hearts.

For our father listens everywhere.
They said I was fair, loved Tennessee,
The fairest flower that e'er could be :
Not one oould be found among the glee
That was half so fair, as the loved Tennessee.
They spoke sweet words to their little
And gave me compliments rich and serene;
They gave the flag of affection to me.
For I was all, their state, Tennessee.
It was sad to part from my Tennessee band ,
Perhaps not to meet in a distant land;

For remember that Heaven is hip pier
May excursions be taken every year.

There are few readers who will
not find something in the September
number of Demorest's Monthly Mag-

ten shorter stories. Among the ar
ticles worthy of note is a highly iute
resting sketch of "Margaret," the
philanthropist of New Orleans, writ

of the articles are fully illustrated

nothing to wish for in the wav of use
ful information. The frontispiece is
a beautiful steel engraving from Mil
laia' celebrated painting, "The Brid
of Lammermoor, now in the Van
