all Vie Grow Irish Potatoes?
Since our connection with the Stand
d we have had much to Bay about
5 Irish potato and its culture as a
)fi table crop to grow in Tennessee,
e have heard so much said about the
ge profits that Sumner, Davidson,
d other counties along the railroad
Kre been making on their potato crops
it we can hardly koep from urging
r farmers in this and other counties
go largely iuto the growing of Irish
tatoes as the leading crop. "We be
ve there is no other crop that will
y us as well, take it one year with
other, as the Irish potato ciop if prop-
,y manngea. oiui we uemiaie w u
e our people to plant too extensively
less wo were absolutely certain that
ey would succeed. 'We have faith
tough to try ten acres, and will take
. e chances of success.
We can see no good reason why
'arren and all other counties iu Mid
e nud East Tennessee cannot grow as
te potatoes as those counties that have
ready succeeded and are now making
tatties their leading and best paying
Tennessee is peculiarly fortunate iu
ing so situated as to grow two crops
jni the same seed, on the same ground
the same year. South of ua the sun
too hot for two crops ; north of us
e seasons are too short for more than
,e successful crop each year. So we
e peculiarly blessed with these natu
1 advantages, and only have to put
rth an eflbit to utilize the same. We
ive the climate and the soil, and all
at is necessary is to prepare our land
ell and put the teed (good seed) in
e ground iu the proper way and at
e proper time and cultivate well,
y using the early varieties, especially
,e Early Rose, we can grow our first
op by the middle or last of June and
i ready to ship to the Northern and
retern markets before their new
" ops are made. This generally gives
i a good price for our first crop. Our
cond-crop may be used foreatingand
r seed for the next year, for both of
hich the second crop is superior to
'e first. But while we believe there
more profit in the Irish potato 'crop

s own judge as to how much he shall
ant or risk. Seed are always high
hen we have to buy and ship them
2re, as we have been doing for many
jars and have to do this if we plant
any potatoes. This will continue to
so until we grow them at home,
hich we can do without doubt. The
cond crop is superior to the best
'orthern seed, and we can grow them
i abundance, and thus put an end to
jying from the North. We have
sen dependent on the North and West
ng enough for our seeds. We must
jt only make them at home but we
iiist begin to send our products North,
ad there is nothing we grow that wil
sy better for this purpose than the
irly potato crop. We believe every
inner, and especially our small far
lers, should plant an acre or more for
larket. There is no further trouble
bout transportation. The N.. & C.
',. R. authorities have given us iu
riting a rate on potatoes from any
Dint on the McMinnville branch to
fashville and to Chattanooga that will
nable us to realize a good profit for
le trouble and expense of growing
lein. The rate promised is low, and
le same to Chattanooga as to Nash
ille. In shipping East or West we
ave the advantage of competing lines.
V'e are midway between the (Jincin-
nti Southern and the Louisville &
fashville and can ship over either line
t our pleasure. So we are all right
n the freight question. The next
liner is to make the potatoes. If our
uuls are not already prepared by
roper plowing and manuring, we
hould be ready to go to work as Boon

hould bear in mind that he who would
ucceed best mu?t do his work best.

Warren County's Apple Crop.
We would be glad to know how
many thousand bushels of apples have
been shipped and hauled away from
Warren county during the present sea
son. The amount is immense. Be
sides this, there has been and will be
thousands and thousands of bushels dis
tilled and yet shipped away. We do
not know, nor do we suppose Mead &
Ritchey know, just how many apples
they have shipped this season. They
began shipping about the middle of
September and have been too busy to
keep count. This firm alone has doubt
leas shipped already not less than 20,
000 bushels. Many other firms and
individuals have beeu shipping and
hauling away all the season.
Fruit growers who have not had to
haul too far have realized a reasonable
price for their apples, cash in hand.
The railroads and barrel makers have
had a good thing without any risk of
loss. Shir per?, who have taken all the
risk, have made some money we hope.
Both shippers and producers might
have done better bad they not kept the
markets overstocked and . thus kept
prices down. Under the circumstances
we have all done the best we could for
others and for ourselves, and must be
satisfied with the results.
- We long to see the day come when
our fruit growers shall have become
independent when each fruit grower
can have an evaporatoi sufficient to
dry all his fruit if he desires, begin
ning with his earliest and continuing
through all the season. Then he will
be independent. If the price justifies
he can sell green ; if not, he can evapo
rate it and thus take care of it and not
e compelled to force it on the market,
as many have had to do this season.
Those of our fruit growers who live too
remote from railroads to haul their
green fruit should supply themselves
with an evaporator. They will then
be comparatively independent. Well
evaporated fruit has aud will always
command a good price. Well evapo
rated apples are now worth 15 cents
per pound in the Eastern aud Western
cities for export and home demand.
It is certainly far more profitable and
leasant to evaporate than to distill
your fruits. Women and children can
run the evaporator, and thus utilize
their labor. The product of the evapo
rator furnishes a nice, delicious and
healthy food for man, while the pro
duct of the distillery, when improperly
used, leads to destruction of both body
and soul. Most of fruit growers distill
their fruit for the money they think
they see in it, and not the pleasure of
the business. You have only to con
vince them that there is more money
in handling their fruit some other way
and they will stop distilling. It is not
for pleasure but for the money they
hope to realize that induces most men
to engage in distilling. It is not our
purpose now to discuss the question as
to whether distilling is profitable or un
profitable, come ot our best men,
with ample meaus, have been engaged
in the business for years aud have
made money ; but still it is a question
whether these same men, had they ap
plied the same money, energy and in
dustry to almost any other business,
would not have succeeded as well or
better. We have great confidence in the
success of the evaporator. It has been
a success wherever tried, even in other
parts ot our State where the quantity
aud quality of the fruits are far infe
rior to the mountain counties of Middle
and East Tennessee. If it has suc
ceeded in the North, East and West,
and South as far as tested, why hesi
tate to introduce it into Warren and
adjoining counties, the best fruit grow
ing section of the State?
ny is it that JN orthern green ap-
les bring in the market $4 per barrel
readily while the general average of
Tennessee apples will not command
over $2.50 to $3.00? It is not so
much on account of the difference in
the fruit as it grows on the trees as in
the way it is handled and put up,
Fruit growers in the North select only
their choice fruit for market, and ban
die and put up with so much more
carethan we do that they realize much
better prices. Their fruit of poorer
quality they evaporate and realize
nearly as much as the best brings green.
The freight and expense of barreling
are no more on a barrel of choice, well
handled apples than on a barrel of in
ferior, but the profit on the former is
much larger than the latter. In this
way our Northern and Western breth
ren excel us and realize much better
profits for their labor and their fruit
than the average Tennessee fruit grower.

More Fires.
Nashville was visited by quite a dis
astrous fire at 2 o'clock last Sunday
morning. The fire occurred at the
southeast corner of Market and Broad
streets, and consumed some ten or
twelve buildings, loss about $150,000.
A livery Btahle was included in the loss
and some fourteen ot fifteen horses were
burned to death. The insurance car
ried by the losers was light.
At 1:30 o'clock Tuesday morning a
fire broke out in Edgfield and destroyed
six frame buildings.
Bee Raising on Cumberland
To the Standard.
My observation on the subject has
thoroughly conviuced me that with the
same amount of capital say $100,
which will buy thirty colonies to begin
with cannot bring in so quick and large
a profit as when invested in bees on
this mountain. I say on this mountain
because my observation on the subject
has been confined to Van Buren, Cum
berland, and Sequatchie counties. The
first thing to be considered is a suitable
location for your apiary or bee farm.
The best place is either a gulf about
half way to the top or just on the top
near a gulf. Thus situated the bees
have access to the poplar, linn, and
a number of other honey bearin
trees found in the gulf, also free access
to an unlimited field of rich flowers of
almost every variety found on top,
This great variety of flowers is by no
means a small item in bee raising.
The shade is also very important. It
affords great comfort to the bee while
gathering his load. This he cannot find
on a prairie or where the timber has
been removed. Another very impor
tant advantage counected with the
mountain is the purity of the atmos
pheie and its freeness from dampness,
The experience of every observing man
has taught him that he would find the
bee moth and insects of every descrip
Hon he must go to a low damp place.
and as the mountain is almost -entirely
free from such places, and we are little
troubled by insects such as annoy man
beast, and bees on lower lands. Now
as to quality of honey I kuow it to be
extra good and the yield I also know
to be very fine, even better than where
they are fed with buck-wheat, white
and red clover off the mountain. The
yield could not be otherwise than great
for the mountain abounds with food for
the bee from early spring till late fall.
Before I close I will tell the many
readers of the Standard of a bee hive
or house in Fentress county. It is
faund on the side of a bluff between the
rocks. It is supposed that if the bees
iu this hive were divided into colonies
the usual size it would make at least
50,000 or more colonies. I will give
further particulars on the subject in my
next letter if desired by any one wish
ing to locate a bee farm. And also
more about the Fentress county hive if
desired. W. J. Hadew,

For a long while we have felt that
we were deficient in educational facili
ties, and that other parts of our county
were making more rapid strides in that
direction than we. This has been
caused mainly from the fadt that, we
had no school building. For years our
schools have been taught in any build
ing to be found vacant, until recently
when the Baptist brethren allowed us
the uso of their church. We need a
larger building, one built exclusively
for school purpopee. There have been
several attempts in the last fifteen years
to build a good house for this purpose,
but from some cause every effort has
failed. The subject is again being
agitated. A few days since some of
our prominent citizens determined to
make one more effort to arouse the peo
pie upon the subject, and iu two days
there was enough stock taken to insure
that it would be a success. The sub
soribers held a meeting last Saturday
and elected a board of trustees, who
were authorized to appoint a building
committee. There was also a commit
tee of five appointed to select and se
cure a suitable location, which duty
they have performed, having chosen a
beautiful site within half a mile of our
village on the McMinnville road, ac
cessible from all points. This looks
like buinew, and if we will all work
together harmoniously we w ill ere long
gee the foundation for a magnificent
brick structure laid upou th site
lected, and in the near future hear the
bell pealing, telling our neighbors to
come and join with us iu our efforts to
diffuse knowledge, and to prepare our
young men and young ladies to fill any
position in after life to which they may
be called with credit to themselves and
their ancestors. This is something in
which the whole country is equally in
terested with us who live in this imme
diate vicinity. Knowing this to lie the
fact, we cordially invite all persons fa
vorable to the enterprise to come and
unite with us, and let us all work to
gether and for one common object, the
education of our sons and daughters.

One of the greatest comforts to those ex
pecting to be confined is a remedy upon
which implicit confidence can' be placed
one that will produce a safe and quick de
livery one that will control pain and short
en the duration -of labor. Such Is' "Tub
Mother's Relief." Try it and see what
A Messing it is to Suffering Females.
This liniment, whim used two or three
weeks before confinement, produces a won
derful etleet, causing a very easy and quick
labor, with comparatively little pain, nnd
leaves the mother in a condition to recover
quickly or in other words to bnve a good
getting up. Under its use, labor will usual
ly occupy much less than the usual time,
and the suffering be diminished beyond ex
pression. The condition ftjr which this remedy is of
fered is of such a character as to forbid a
long array of certificates. Those interested
iu its use are respectfully referred to the hun
dreds who have used it.
Kead the Testimonials :
I mosl earnestly entreat everv female ex
pecting to be confined to use "The Mother's
Relief." Coupled with this entreaty, I will
aild that during a large obstetrical practice
(forty-four years) I have never known it to
fail to produce a sate and quiet delivery.
