The I jK.v i'-C'ii kon ii'i ,ks subscrip tion list is growing daily, and it goes to every quarter of the Clarksville tobacco district. Advertisers should bear this in mind if they want to reach the people. It is hoped that 'Squire Caldwell, . Dr. Hailey and John Shelton will show up again to-night at the special meeting at the Paptist church. There is still a chance for them if they will hold out and be faithful and persistent in their attendance. Quite a large number of farmers are attending the tobacco miles. The market appears strong and active ior all good grades. Dr. Lowry, of Elk ton, Dudley Ware, of Hopkinsville, Creed Penick, of Todd county, and E. B. Ross were among the promi nent dealers attending the market. Reserved I seats are not so much in de.nand at a religeous revival as they are at some other public gath erings. Henry Watterson will preach his sermon here on April llth, on "Monev and Morals," then every- body will want a reserveu i .; they will all be taken In advance and paid for, but It is astonishing j -ho few people willing to K"to, Leaven on a free reserved seat I PQ CALLED MEETING. The City Solons Will Meet at the Hall To-niffht. They-Will Consider Free Petal Delivery And Any Other Business Coming: Before Them. ' Mr. Wilde, the postofflce inspector, was driven over the city laat evening In company with C. H. Bailey and Jno. Marable. The object was to give the inspector a correct idea ot the city and to impress him with the need of a free delivery system. The gentleman is well pleased with the city and says the free delivery system can be in working order here before two months if the city author ities will do their part. There is no trouble about that. Mayor Ligon handed a Leaf-Chronk lk reporter the following this morping : call meeting. I hereby call a meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen for 7:30 o'clock to-night to consider the free delivery system and any other easiness that may come before the Board. G. A. Ligon, Mayor. The above call was brought for ward at the request of several of the Aldermen, who are in favor of hav ing the houses numbered at once, and of having the names of streets placed at all intersections. This will consume some little time and consid erable careful work. The greatest care will have to be taken in the matter to guard against any future complication. The Board of Aldermen want the free delivery system ; the citizens generally want it, and there is no doubt now that they will have it. The resolution looking to having the houses numbered will pass the Board by acclamation and the work will be gin as sypn as practicable. Jno. Marable is employed to-day making a map of the city to be used by Mr. Wilde in making out his re port. The point that he is working on now is to find out the number of carriers needed. He thinks he can get the postal authorities to give the city four. Off for Kansas. Mrs. John Bradley left this morn ing with her family to join her hus band at Pittsburg, Kansas, where they will make their future home. Mr. Bradley left a month ago and has f stablised himself there in a prof itable business. Mrs. Ira Barksdale and children accompanied her mother and Ira will leave the first of April, when his resignation as mana ger of the Standard Oil Co.'s interest here will take effect. He will also settle at Pittsburg. The best wishes of the Leaf-Chronicle and the community for their success and prosperity in their new home will follow both families. Special meeting- for the Unconverted. Rev. Dr. Penn will preach a special sermon at the Baptist church to-night at 7:30 to the unconverted and will endeavor to show the reason why man is lost, in a way in which they have perhaps never heard the ques tion presented. All unconverted people and those who are not in the full enjoyment of religion are invited to attend. Christian people are re quested to meet in the basement and hold a prayer-meeting during the service in the audience room. A Newspaper for Guthrie. The report was started at Elkton re cently that a newspaper would be established at Guthrie some time soon, under the management of Frank M. Duffy. Capt. Duffy was seen on the streets to day ami says the stock company has been organ ized, and that lie has been spoken to about running the paper. Further than this he knew nothing. He will go to Guthrie this week to investi gate the matter. The best and cheapest way to reach the buyers of Clarksville and the Clarksville tobiuco district is through the columns of the laily and Semi- Weekly Tobacco Leaf-Chronicle. Special issues are gotten out eight times every week ; they go to a large majority of the best homes in city anil country, and but little more is asked for advertising in them than is wanted for the same space in ordina ry papers with not one-fifth their cir culation. Merchants who want to reach the people and save money in advertising will make a note of this. The Springfield Herald says: The farmer in this county were never so dilatory and unconcerned about making a crop as they have been up to this time. The wheat crop is recovering from the recent cold snap; will not re cover sufficiently to make as full yield as it would have made perhaps had it not been so far advanced Ik fore the cold snap came. There were several plant beds sown last week between showers. Joseph Wells and Miss Jsannie Covington,' a runaway pair from (Jreenville, Ky., were married at the Northington House this morning, Itcv. Dr. Sears officiating. Gorman, the tailor, announces the roceiptof spring suitings and trour serings and invites gentlemen to call and inspect art me. See notice of mule sale at laniel's table Saturday at 12 o'clock. A Big Crop is the Thing. Farmers are still burning plant beds, and propose to continue this business up to planting time, lest the bugs eat up the early plants or a drouth should cut the planting short. Perhaps this is the best thing to do, and then plant both sides of the earth in the weed, that China may get a good supply while the vorld is circling around. The Gracey house sold a hogshead for tlfi.50 per hun dred not long ago, and that ought to encourage farmers in extensive plant ing, for it may be that they will all raise a lueuy hogshead to bring up the average. And what if they don't, then the only sure thing is to plant a double size crop so as to get two dollars for 200 pounds, where only one dollar was made on 100 pounds last year. The more one plants the more mean tobacco he makes, and that is what keeps up an interest in the market and enables farmers to wear long faces, which are cheaper than broadcloth frocks and silk hats. Laat year's crop is only half lugs, which sell for $1 00 to $2 00 per hundred, according to the amount of worm-eaten and house- burnt found in it; and that is not half enough cheap tobacco to fill up the warehouses, encourage statisti cians in preparing reports of stock on hand and exercise the buyers' cursing school. More tobacco is what is real ly wanted, mean tobacco with just enough black fat to stimulate the "Old Man," Bettie and the babies. FLAMING FIGURES. The Clay That Will be Used For Street Purposes. The Owen & Moore Excavation is Small, Compared With That on the An- ' glen Property. The fine weather of the last few days has been very favorable to the people who are having arrangements made for building houses. The chain gang is employed at digging out the foundation for Owen & Moore's new house at the corner of Second and Franklin streets. The work is super intended to a great extent by It. E. Gilbert, chairman of the street com mittee. The dirt is being put on College street near Drane's pond for the purpose of widening the street at that point. Few people have an idea of the vast amount of dirt that will be moved in making the excavation. The lot is about 65x100 feet. The cellar will be dug on an average of seven feet. By making a calculation one trill readily see that 50,050 cubic feet of earth will have to be moved. A cubic foot of clay will weigh about seventy-five pounds. Multiplying this by the total number of cubic feet you will have the enormous total of 3,753,750 pounds of earth that will be hauled away and put on the streets. This, however, is a small affair compared with the excavation that will be made on the Anglen prop erty. This property in the first place will be leveled with Franklin street. The lot is now about six feet above the street, and after taking it down to a level, about ten feet will then be dug out for cellars. It is safe at least to say that the lot, 110x200, will be dug down fifteen feet. Mak ing the "same calculation as in the Owen & Moore lot, it will be found that 339,000 cubic feet of dirt willbe moved at this place! making a total of 25,492,500 pounds of clay that will be handled before a house can be built on this lot. This is an enor mous undertaking, seemingly, but it will be done in a hurry when once it is started. The hands now employed tearing away the Anglen residence are mak ing good headway, and if the fine weather lasts, nothing will be left a wtek from to-day but the foundation of the house. Mr. Anglen says he never had a correct idea of the size of the house until he began tearing it down. He says he will have to rent part of Dr. Shelby's lot on Franklin street to pile the lumber on before the workmen get done tearing it down. The lot on which he pro poses building his house is already about full. Taking everything into considera tion, Clarksville. will make more show in new buildings this year than she has shown in any one year in the past. W. O. Brandon, at the Lkaf- Chronicle office, is agent for the Caligraph," one of the best ami fastest type-writers made, while it is sold for less money than any other first class machine. He will take pleasure in showing the Caligraph to any one contemplating the purchase of a writing machine. There are now five or six Caligmphs in the city and all are giving perfect satisfac tion.

A Plucky Woman's Brave Defence-Ao-oident to the Bridge at Port Royal. To The Tobacco Leaf-Chronicle. On the evening of the 19th inst., the home of the OrndorfT Bros., at Adams Station, wa3 a scene of excite ment. The younger brother was ab sent from the neighborhood. His wife and children were attending prayer-meeting at the M. E. church, and Mr. Eli OrndorfT had walked down to the postoffiee a few hun dred yards distant, leaving his wife the sole occupant of the house in an upstairs room. About 8 o'clock she heard a noise below, then some one ascending the stairway, to which she paid little attention, thinking it was only Mr. OrndorfT coming in. Mrs. OrndorfT stood fronting a large mir ror, with her back to an open door, when lo ! and behold ! she saw, re flected from behind, a black demon, corning toward her, holding wide spread an overcoat, which he doubt less intended throwing over his vic tim. She grasped a window stick, with which she struck him a severe blow ; the stick broke and she screamed and rushed below into the street. She says the miscreant ran also, but in her great excitement she does not remember which led the ad vance. Alas! for the bridge, Mr. Brady and the traveling public. Friday night, the 21st inst., the hardest rain known for years fell. Saturday morning, despite the heroic efforts of the hands to ward off the drift, the second false bridge washed out. The pillars had been spanned and several footmen had crossed over the day be fore. Mr. Brady has our sympathy in this, his second discouragement and loss. Ross Bourne went to town Mon day. Mrs. r. 11. urissam accom panied him to spend several days with Dr. Beach's family. Miss Mary Cage spent Saturday night and Sunday with Miss Sallie Watson, of Woodford. Miss Mattie Cage is teaching music and literature in a private family at Cumberland City Besides her competency to teach whatever she attempts, she is a great social addition to any neighborhood R. B. Carney spent Sunday at V. A. Bobbett's. Mr. Carney has kindly offered us some interesting items of the long ago, written by his father, Norfleet Carney, with a goose quill pen, while a resident of North Carolina, in the beginning of the Nineteenth century. Later we shall be pleased to give the interesting document a deserving notice. Since the marriage of the bewitch ing little IViiss Leaf to the fine-look ing, substantial old Mr. Chronicle, she has been so busy making ready her apartments for house-keeping on a permanent basis that, with her busy broom, she sweeps aside at least half of our items for want of room aroundher valuable fireside. When the honeymoon is over, and the household set' in "apple pie order," we shall hope for more standing room Pleasantly, Laughing Water. March 20, 1890.

Dr. Penn was greeted by an other very large audience last night. The house was crowded. He devo ted himself to the "Rich Fool." And fools in general received a good turn ing over, Bible quotations being free ly used in support of the argument. Dr. Penn says many thing3 that cause a ripple of smiles in the audi ence, but he does not seem to realize that his expressions are at all funny, and therefore doesn't relish the hu mor manifested on the part of his au dience. His methods are altogether new here and curiosity has not yet yielded to the more serious consider ation and importance of the truths presented. Memphis for Clapp. Mr. Weatherford, of Port Royal has just returned from an extended visit to friends in Memphis. Mr Weatherford says the Democrats are badly split up in Memphis, but Speaker Clapp seems to be decidedly the favorite of the Bluff City for governor. The Commercial is ably supporting Clapp, and the Patterson people are not all pleased by the ap pointment of registrars made by Governor Taylor. If Clapp can go into the State convention backed by a solid delegation from Shelby coun ty, he will most likely get the nomi nation. Spring- Goods at Bloch Bros.
