VOL. X. I.. ( MILAN, TENN., AUGUST 25, 1883. NO. 20. M S LAN Exchange. CHAPTER IV. Merry is tha laugh of the boyi which echoes from the sides of the Great Southerm Exposition at Louisville, now in th'i fourth week of lta successful existence. From far and near hare ther come to see whatean r-e seen and there Is a great ( eal te see I 1 Some came with their parents, some came without; Boniecameon their parent' money and others on their own. They had taken our advice to save up money to to ty the Exposition- A good many boys of the present day soon (earn the value of money, and, as a natural conseqaence, they learn how to' take eare of it, and when they spend it get vnlue received. They came to Louisville cheap because of the liberal excursion rates, they hatrefoijnd a pleasant place at which to stop,' say Alexander's new Hotel, and light hearted as boyi only can be enliven the crowd at the Exposition, with their cheery lAugh and boyish pranks,' They see much to admire they see many things new to them they see a world of wonders to furnish the subject for many a fireside talk in after years, and above alt they won't soon forget how well they looked and felt dresned op in one of J. Win ter k Co.'s suits, bought from that starling rs-tibliihrnent, corner of Third and Market Streets, Louisville, Ky. Most all well-dreised bojs at the Exposition or on the street of Louisville have beea fitted eat at J. Winter A Co:'s, oorner of Third and' .Market Streets, and. they are walking, talking, living advertisement of J. Winter fc Co-, the Louisville manufacturers, who don't sell Eastern made goods they would not touch them with a ten foot pole.- As many of the readers of this sketch will take in the Great Souther Exposition at Louisvill , and as many of them will bring their boys along it will amply repay to visit the colossal establish ment of J. Winter k Co., oorner of Third and Market itreots, and take a stroll through the Coys' Clothing dcpurtment,and yog will speak of it afterwards .as the biggest thing ef th" kind yon ever saw piles upon piles of clothing for boys of any size, shape, or nationality from the cheapest to the finest, cut in all the rarest shapes of the prevailing fashion. Over coats of all styles and any size. In material and price to suit anybody we carry an immense steck and our Boys' Department is complete in every detail; and everything is manufactured In Louisville, out by Louisville artists, and made by Louisville tailors. The buttons stay on, the seam1 won't rip, the shape holds out, and the clothes wear well 1 1 If this is not an induce ment to fit put your boy at J. Winter 4 Co.'s, corner of Third and Market Streets, Louisville, Ky.; then let us know what more yon expeot. When you coma to Louisville and you have not brought your boy, but wish to remember him by a token of affection, take hi-" a suit of clothes bought from ns. All we want te know is the age; by this inforty-nine 'cases out of fifty, we give a fit; should we, however, fail to do this we choerfully refund the money.

We hear a rumor, which appears to be well authenticated, that Rooks, clerk 6f the school board of Eatou,, district, has , defaulted for about 8600, and has left the country. It is said that his wife will refund the amount.. It ia alleged that he raised the mouey by issuing forged warrants on the county Trustee, and then col lecting the mouey himself. ' DIED. ' His many friends in this and ad joining counties will be sad to learn that A. B.. Hurt, Esq., died yester-. day at his residence, a few miles east of here, iu Carroll county. He had been sick two or three weeks with ty- plioid fever, and there was little hope for his recovery for several days be fore his .death, i. He was a magistrate and a useful ' and popular citizen. Many in Milan will miss him greatly. , Mrs. Wyatt Betty died at the res idenee of. her husband, , near Shady Grove, last Wednesday, from the shock ofa, stroke of lightning.

Inhere is a prospect for a fiue crop of turnips. ( ;The hickory-nut crop around here is very promising. i Watermelons are now about ns, cheap as Irish potatoes. , We are beginning to look out for the first open boll of cotton There were twenty-two conversions at a recent revival at Bradford. Several wagon loads of very good penches were sold here this week. ; The Prentiss club has re organized and will give us an entertainment soon. ' l. Mr. W. C. Turner sent us some very fine sweet potatoes lust Tuesday, for which we thank him. ,. Now is the time to lay in your winter coal and wood,, while, it is cheap and the roads good. i 'The evaporator is now kept busy running day and night. Much sun puis fruit is being used up. Our correspondents have all failed to come to time this week. Guess the weather is too hot for them. Milan haa four or five drummers on the road all the time. They travel for other cities, though. I The south-bound train on the I. C. road, due here about ten o'clock a. m. Thursday, was two hours late. Tom Harrison does not compla'in of dull times. He finds bis trade good all the time. He advertises con tinually. t ' Mauy of our citizens drive to the Thomas wells, especially on Sunday afternoons, to drink the fine mineral waters there. ' ' Mike Collins, aged twentysthree years, i died last Wednesday night. He will be sadly missed. 7 He was an old family horse. ; Any company of men who can play a game of base ball on as hot a day as was last Monday ought to make good soldiers or farmers. Crump, the jeweler, haa presented the C P. Church with a handsome silver communion set a most appro priate gift, and one which will be ap preciated. If somebody will choke the engin eer who toots his whistle in such an unearthly manner, he may draw on us for one ' year's subscription to the Exchange. ,. Mayo, - Covington & Co. have hung out a new sign, marked , "Tex; as Cheap Store.? It was reported a short time since that they were going to Texas. II mica .the sign. ' We venture the assertion that the Exchange office has the most accom modating "devil'.'i on record. His cognomen is James B. Horner, but the boys call him 'Vjim" for short. , A telegram from Prof. Laugston informs us that he will be in Milan next Monday. He will then begin active preparations for the opening of bchool oii the Monday, following, ' The camp-meeting at Cold Water, near McKenzie, was suddenly closed one th day of the storm. Too much cold water for a Methodist meeting, if they do believe in pouring and sprink ling. Jack Lewis and a two - year -old mule gave a fine exhibition Thursday evening the former in skillful riding while .the latter exhibited genuine mule cussednesa. . Jack was on top part of the time. ' , Mr. W. ('. Turner's resideno came near being destroyed by fire last Sati urday afternoon, A spark fell on the kitchen roof and burned a hole in it before it was dUcovejed. Prompt work saved it, though. A new continued story will begin In the Exchange shortly, and it will be very interesting. Now is a good time to subscribe, r ; It strikes us that it would pay some of our farmers U bale their hay for market. It grows here luxuriantly; yet thousands uf bales are shipped right by us to the south, and much of it is consumed in Milan, too. Trenton Globe: A negro girl living in the Fourth district died suddenly last week from' eating peaches. John McDearmon, ; colored, , living near Brazil, was fooling with a gun the other day, when it went off and killed his wife. , ; ,i There are not so many white loaf ers around town as at this time last year, but , there are lots of colored ones. ' It is a common' sight to see a number of negro men playing marbles and baseball, when they ought to be at work. .1 This ought not to be. . Mr. Deason, of the county war rant committee, will be In Milan next Wednesday for the purpose of regis tering warrants. Parties holding war rants should report to him. He thus saves them the trouble and expense of a trip to Trenton. Remember the day next Wednesday. The C. A. Hill base ball club, of Trenton, and the W. E. Turners of Milan, played their third game here last Monday, when the Hills got away with our boys in u score of 31 to 13. The Turners say they were out of practice had been fox-hunting too, much. j Our fellow citizens A. G. McPear mon, IL Z.. Taylor, J. I. Wells and A. W. Raines have been appointed by Gov. Bate as Commissioners to represent Gibson county in the Louis ville and Boston Expositions. Call on them at once for any information desired in this line. Trenton Globe. The Soldiers' reunion, it will be remembered, takes place next Thurs day, when a big crowd will be present, and speeches will lo made by promi nent gentlemen. The . barbecuo has been abandoned and a basket dinner decided on. Let everybody carry his basket and enjoy a day with old com rades, i Mr. Jack Fields was tried before Esquires Heathcock and Meals this week, charged with interfering with road overseer Williams while on duty. A number of witnesses were examined and much interest mani fested, but the State failed to make a case and the defendant was dis charged. , The case of the State vs. L. C. Baker, charged with assault aud at tempt to commit murder in the sec ond degree, was tried id the Trenton circuit court this week, and the de. fendaut found guilty and sentenced tojhree years in the penitentiary. A motion for a new trial was argued yesterday, with what result , we have not heard. , . .. . .. .... : , Protracted meetings are in progress at the Baptist chureh here! at Salem, one mile north of town, and at Friend ship, three miles south, A meet ing will also begiu at the Methodist church here Sunday night, on the occasion of the fourth quarterly meet ing. With this general move all along the line, the devil ought to be routed. ,, ,N In response to a hint in this paper last week, iar generous friend, Hen. ry Dickinson, has given us a start in chickens. , He presented us with a pair of his pure-blooded Plymouth Rocks, the finest breed in the coun try, . He has frequent orders for them from a distance, un I can har lly nuj ply the demand. We appreciite tha gill very highly. , PERSONAL.
