We are frequently asked whether Homestead Fertilizer will pay on wheat, and how much per acre, and how to apply it. Mr. Ramsey has been using it for a number of years, as well as many of his neighbors, with suecess,and while he'believes it pays, he attributes much of his sue cess to the thorough preparation of the land before seeding.

Tho gas well near the Beershe ba ford, on land now . owned by Messrs. llouchin & Biles, it is thought will furnish an abundant supply. This well was bored just, after the war, in searching for oil,, but when gas was struck the well was plugged, and remains so to the present time. Messrs. llouchin & Biles have leased the well to a party who has applied to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen for a franchise to lay pipes through the streets. As soon as thisis secured an expert from Pennsylvania will be employed to reopen and test the well, and if found to give an adequate sup ply of gas, the pipes will be laid at once. This will not only give our people a cheap and superior fuel lor domestic purposes, but will encour age the location of manufacturing in dustries here. We hope the bpard will grant the franchise on the most favorable terms withoutdelay. Every enterprise which will add to Mc Minnville's prosperity should be given the fullest encouragement, and if this well is opened McMinnville will bo the first Tennessee town to utilize natural gas. Masonic Widows' and Orphans' Home. Death of Mr. S. F. Pennebaker. Mr. Samuel F. Pennebaker died at the home of his , uncle, Mr. W.' P.

Mr. Pennebaker had been a sufferer from consumption for several years, and had been confined to his room at Mr. Faulkner's calmly and patiently awaiting his end for about two months. The greater part of the last two years of his life were spent in traveling from place to place, in Colorado, Florida, Texas and other states, seeking relief from the de structive influences of disease, and it seems like a special providential guidance that brought him back to his old home to spend the final weeks of his life under the kindly adminis trations of loving friends and kindred lie fully realized a month or more ago that he was fast approaching death, and he looked to the end with out fear or dread. He was fully con sciousand talked calmly to those who surrounded his bedside up to within five minutes of his final dissolution, and he passed peacefully into the portals of death without a struggle or a murmur. Mr. Pennebaker was SI years of age, and leaves one little son, aged about 7 years. He became a member of the Christian church about nine years ago. He was buried in the new cemetery at 5 o'clock Thursday after ternoon, the Remains being followed to the grave by a large concourse of sorrowing friends and relatives. The funeral services were conducted by Elder II. L. Walling, at the residence of Mr. Faulkner. He gathered many warm friends around him during his life, who will revere and cherish his memory till they join him in the spirit land. LIST OF LETTERS M. B. Toney, Esq., Agent of the Merchants Dispatch fast freight line, Nashville, came up last Tuesday to attend the marriage', Wednesday of Mr. Turner of Nashville, to Miss Sallie Myers of this place. While here Mr. Toney met a number of the Masonic Fraternity and explained to them his purpose of establishing a Masonic "Widows' and Orphans' Home in Tennessee, of which he4s President. The institution will be for the care of destitute Widows and Orphans of worthy deceased Masons; emphatically an Institution of chari ty.

The aim of the offi cers and directors is to raise $50,000, principally from certificates of life membership, $25 each.
