A rieasanl Mania ltesort. As it is ours to know what is going on, and especially in Warren county, we called in on our return home to take in the situation at Crisp's Red Sulphur Springs, 6ix miles west of McMiuu ville, and believing that experience is the best teacher, we spent Tuesday night at the new hotel at that place and found its gentlemanly proprietor, Mr. W. L. Lillard, in high spirits about the future of his laudable enter prise, and Dr. Ransom viewing with complacent satisfaction the results al ready achieved, and very active and hopeful with regard to the success of his well meant efforts to establish this as a pleasant and delightful summer resort Though too early for the sum mering season, yet already quite a num ber of visitors had arrived and were making the premises lively and inter esting by their presence. The sound of the hammer is brisk in making room for all who may apply. And we can assure our city friends vvho at sonie times and places have just grouuds to be fastidious about hotel milk, butter and vegetables, that the'y will get what they call for under these heads fresh and pure, for Mr. Lillard has knocked out "the middle man" that the Grang ers have so long been shooting at, by dealing directly with the producers of these articles. We hope these gentlemen will realize their fondest anticipations in establish ing Crisp's Springs as a place of resort for both health and pleasure seekers, and that the people of Warren county will give them that encouragement which their enterprise so justly claims at their hands. Miss Mary Lillard, of Murfrecsboro, is on a visit to her brother, W. L.

Do the people of McMinnville real ize the necessity of prompt steps to make this place a summer resort? Do they fully appreciate the amount of ready money success in this direction would yearly scatter amongst them of which they will never see a dollar un less this is secured ? That many of them do, we know. V e heard one of the largest property owners, who is thoroughly posted, say : "The tax payers of town want a well bored in the square and are willing to pay for it," and we believe this to be true. Then what's tiic matter t If those whose property is taxed to pay for - it want a well bored, why are not steps taken by the authorities to have it done ? Min eral water can begotten if a well is sunk deep enough. There is next to no risk on that point anywhere in this whole region the interior of the earth here and hereabouts is full of it, and compared to its value when done, the cost of boring to get it is a mere baga telle. It will repay its cost in a single season, aud will, year after year, as time rocks on, increase the amouut of that compensation. No other invest ment of the same amount of monev The spring session of W. and W. College closed yesterday in public ex amination and other interesting cxer cises. The Standard had cone to press before the exercises closed ajid hence we cannot give any report them this week. Irving College also closed yesterday fter two or three days of public exer cises. We were invited and had prom ised to attend the closing exercises of both these schools, but press of busi ness consequent upon our late absence prevented, which we regret. very much. I ran tVa t , matter ? Is there any ex cuse for lon&v , t e , . . , . , , 6V4iegIect of what is so plainly to our nvtC, i u r. mi u0W ftnd here- Vebt. Our uixes go on as usual, neveii Wfi WOlllrl tin nnA point out the security for the lmt the stores, the court-house anY othor property right on the square in Mse of fire with the present supply of water. If we got no mineral water but secured a flowing well, as everybody" . knows can be done by going deep enough, . it would be the best thing done for many a long day. It is no longer a problem about ar tesian, or flowing wells, called artesian from Artois, a town in France, where the first one was bored. But it is a mnTeraf Va'tiff "iof SUm-tew dW.. -tribe almost without exception in every case where a well has been bored for salt or oil in this whole region. Sulphur wa ter flows out at the surface at Faulk ner's, at Crisp's, and was struck iu the oil well at Beersheba ford, at that on Rocky river, and that at Rock Mar tin's farm, the latter at 489 feet, the two former at less depth. And so all over the country where the auger has been sent down deep cuouuh.

No departures too warm to leave here. The llotloni. We live in the very midst of what meteorologists call "thecalm belt," a re gion free from the extremes of hot and cold, wet and dry, Btagnant air and ter ri5c wind storms. Any one of these extremes is so rare that with her eleva tion above the sea level, her light and invigorating atmosphere, her natural drainage and comparative exemption from miasmatic poison, McMinnville should be able, on the face of such facts, to boast that she is the most healthy town in this or any other State. Naturally she is entitled to this high claim', and with but slight attention on the part of our municipal authorities to well known principles of sanitation she soou will be widely known as justly entitled to this enviable distinction. We have great respect for the good in- tions of our worthy mayor and alder men and therefore call their attention to the condition of the bottom in which the depot and engine, house are located, also the pond back of the depot, that they may take steps to prevent its becoming before long a hot-bed for dis ease. 1ms bottom is simply a dimple in the surface with a high rim dotted with tenements and other buildings, with an interior watershed which with every rainfall carries intfl it the wash ings from a number of streets, stables, back yards and what-not. In plain English, that bottom la the receptacle for a very large amount of worst dis ease-breeding filth of the town, which is there planted and there must remain until the proper drainage is applied. Holy Writ tells us, "What a man soweth tliat he shall reap, and sure as the unchanging law of cause and effect if the matter is not corrected we will have an outbreak of typhus or some other terrible pestilence, the just punishment of negligence and folly 1 Fortunately, Mr. Robert Stiles pro poses to drain the pond for ten dollars, "no cure no pay," and our corporate authorities have legal power to require thb railroad company to open all ditches, and keep them open, necessary to the permanent and perfect draining of the residue of this pestiferous eye sore. We therefore urge the making of the contract indicated and giving notice to the railroad company to cut and keep open all ditches requisite to perfect drainage not only of the waste OCT trv.A .

The Rise and Fall of the Confeder ate Government, by Ex-President Jef ferson Davis, is now being sold by sub scription 'in Warren county by our active and entrgetic friend, Sam. F. Pennebaker, agent. As predicted long before its appear ance in public, this is emphatically the book of the war." Aside from Mr. Davis' intimate connection with the causes and conduct of the war, no man of his day was better qualified to per form this high and sacred duty to the past, present and , future generations than he. A scholar by training and practice, a soldier by profession, a pa triot by nature, a statesman by expe rience, aud a writer without a rival in the field he has chosen, he could not have done otherwise in the course of human events than produce a book su perior to all its competitors on that subject, And such is the result. Mr. Davis is not only a scholar in his sphere, a soldier, a patriot, a states man and writer, but he has acted the jJulotoplicr in delaying his work till the passious and prejudices of the hour had subsided. This fact, together with his peculiar and eminent qualifications for such a task designates him as the man for the work, and guarantees the work as adequate to the undertaking, which was to present the causes, the conduct, and the result of the war, and vindi cate the honor and integrity of those who espoused the cause and either fell in the conflict or lost the prize. It will be a standard history of the rebellion for all time, and no man who wishes the truth from both sides, can afford to leave it out of his library. MCMINNVILLE PRODUCE MARKET.
