The Clarksville Park Association met at the court-house Saturday ev ening, pursuant to adjournment, President BucSQcr in the chair, It. B. Withers secretary. The committees on finance and set tlement with Buenaventura farm Company both brought in favorable reports, showing the finances in a good condition with some six or seven hundred dollars more stock subscription collected in, and a satis factory settlement of differences with the farm company, which will possi bly leave a balance in the treasury from the ptoceeds of the fall fair, af ter paying all expenses and the cost of Improvements. Col. Goodlett, who happened to be secretary of both associations, as stated last week, resigned his posi tion both as secretary and director in the Park Association, was present and explained how the misunder standing occurred which caused some dissatisfaction. It seems that at the time the Park Association was organized the farm company had a new track thirty-two feet wide and something over one half mile long. The Park Associa Hon was cuaranteed the free use of this track and privileges to the grounds in consideration of locating the fair grounds, amphitheatre, stock pens, etc., on the company's proper ty. It, however, became necessary to widen the track to 60 feet, and shorten it to one-half mile, which cost abont f 1,500. The Farm Co. did not contemplate doing this work and keeDiner un so wide a track at its own expense, while the Park Asso ciation understood this to be inclu ded in the proposition. The com mittee appointed to adjust the mat ter agreed to pay half of the cost of widening the track and to pay Col. Goodlett $100 for his services as sec retary. The proposition was readily accepted and the whole matter ami cably settled. The reports were turned over to the directory of the Park Association for final settle ment and a statement of accounts. J. G. Joseph, Frank Beaumont and G. W. Warfleld were appointed a committee to prepare by laws for the government of the Association. The finance committee allowed Mr. Rossington $50 for services as treasurer. He Paeiea Quietly Away as the Midnight Hour ia Tolled. ESWIN NEBLETT DEAD. The Monumental Concert Date Changed. The death of J. Erwin Neblett at the home of his father, on the south side, is particularly a sad one. A young man of sterling character is cut down by death's cruel sickle. The writer has been Intimately ac quainted with him since boyhood. His was a generous, open nature. He made it a point through life to shun all appearances of evil, " and bv his strict adherence to the line of duty had drawn around him the love and esteem of all who came in con tact with him. HM death, though not unexpected, is a great shock to his family. For months he baa lain upon the bed of affliction, never murmuring at his lot. He has Dome it patiently and with complete con fidence in the saving grace or his Maker. His spirit took its flight to the great beyond, calmly and peace fully ust as the clock on tne mantle tolled the hour of midnight. He had talked with his former pastor late in the evening of yesterday, and told him that he knew he must die, and that he was not afraid, 'lnat should be a great solace to his family, mother, father, sisters, brothers. Erwin's spirit has left the casket, and is now in the presence of his Maker, You can meet him in the "sweet by and by" where all troubles are for ever over and partings come not. His burial will take place at Green wood Cemetery to-morrow morning at 10 o'clock, with services at the grave by Rev. J. J. Comer, his uncle by marriage. His friends and ac quaintances are invited to attend the burial at that hour. OHTJBCH NOTES. Handling: and Training- Horses. Mrs. Jas. M. Harvey died unexpect edly Saturday evening at her home on Greenwood Avenuo. Her mains were taken to Palmyra and buried from tho old home in the Powers burying ground, with service by Rev. Stamper. Henry Span, a youth who lives near Esq. Runiey's on the south side, was driving a team several days ago when the horses became frightened and ran away. Striking a tree the wagon was overturned and Span thrown out and very much bruised and stunned. One of tho horses had a leg broken in the fracas. The Rev. J. P. Plunkett has been called to the pastorate of the First Presbyterian church at Augusta, Ga., and will at once enter upon his duties there. Mrs. Plunkett, who has been visiting relatives in the city, wilf leave this evening for Augusta. She will be joined at Nashville by Miss Sallle Owen, who is visiting Judge Lurton's family. Nearly Serious. Ln.st evening Chas. Major and Miss Catlett, his cousin, were taking a drive over the city. In making a turn at the comer of Franklin and Second Htreets the young lady was thrown from the buggy and consid erably bruised.

WaM.AI'K AVl STKSKKRGER, Secretary. Kniffhts Templar Meeting-. Many people are mistaken in the idea that high bred, spirited horses are the most vicious and dangerous. The facts are to the reverse. The blooded horse is generally more intel ligent than the common plug orscrub and only wants training to make him docile and tractable. People have an idea that the proper way to raise a colt is to lot him rough it un til old enough for service, and then rope him up and beat the poor crea ture until he is conquered and made to know his place and service. Horses thus trained are always scared, ex pectlug punishment when taken in hand and never become safe until too old to be useful. Tho intelligent an imal, if trained from a colt, coaxed and treated kindly becomes well broken at three years old and is never afraid of anything, but is easily trained to perforin any kind of ser vice. We have an illustration; not long since the Leaf-Chronicle made notice of ('apt. Crusman's pair of fine young mares, three and four years old, driving so gently to his delivery wagon. Capt. Crusman raised these colts from an Embassa' dor mare, the finest race blood known in this section twenty years ago. Af ter the breaking up of Charles Meri wether's Woodstock stud, this flily fell into the hands of some one who did not know her worth. She was broken to the saddle and harness af ter the ordinary fashion and was so vicious that no one could handle her. She would bite and kick at everything that camo. near and run away every time she was hitched to a vehicle. She was badly treated and looked very rough. Capt. Crus man bought her for a mere song. It took a year's kind treatment to bring the mare out, but by gentle manage ment she became a most docile and safe-driving animal. He raised three colts from her. The first one killed himself in a playful roir.p in the lot. The two fillies above men tioned are the other two colts of the once vicious old mare by Uolddust, and they are beauties that will make any horseman's mouth water. Notes Gathered Despite Sabbatical Rev erenoe. The Presbvterian church was the center of attraction Sunday morning Rev. Mr. Sampson, a missionary to Greece, delivered a very Interesting sermon at 11 o'clock, laying particu lar stress upon ancient and modern Greece. The gentleman is not back nn a regular lecturing tour, but was called home by the fatal illness of his wife's father and mother. There was an unusually large crowd out to hear the distinguished gentleman, and all were highly entertained by him. At 3 o'clock he delivered a lecture at Stewart hall on the history of the ancient Grecians. Some of the college boys remarked in the presence of the writer that they had 'never appreciated their Greek until hearing the lecture." They were all well pleased and highly edifled by the lecture. This evening at 4 o'clock Mr. Sampson will deliver a lecture, in the lecture room of the Presbyterian church, on the "Women of Greece." This promises to be fine, and a large crowd should turn out to hear it. Mr. Sampson will leave America in a few days to resume his labors in Greece. At the Methodist church last night Bishop Hargrove preached a very fine sermon to a large congregation. He took for his subject the "Parable of the Laborers " Tho congregation was very attentive and seemed well pleased with the sermon. Dr. Har grove has been holding the District Conference at Pal.nyra and was pre vailed upon to stop here and preach last night. The other churches of the city had their regular services, good congrega tions attending at each hour. It is already known that the ladies of the Monumental Association are engaged in preparing a concert to the building of a monument In honor or the soldiers who fell fighting for the south during the late war. This event was last week announced for the first of May ; the date has now been unavoidably changed to the eighth, a week later. We cannot doubt that it will be very fully attended ; this would re suit, If it was only known that it is a tribute which the ladies of Clarks ville desire to pay to the departed heroes who died for them on the field of duty. But this sentiment is not to be the only inducement; the ladies are making great exertions to produce an entertainment far above the average of such performances in the city ; with this view they have secured the services of several distin guished amateurs from other places. One of these is Mr. Burke, from Louisville, a very accomplished vio linist. It is in fact the impossibility of this gentleman to be here on the first which has caused the post ponement, he being engaged in a tour with Edwin Booth and Madame Modieska. Besides him we are to nave miss ArmstrouK, " accomplished pianist from Louisville and Miss Vertrees, who is a great favorite in Nashville as a vocalist. Nor are we to depend on talent from a distance alone. Friday night's performance at the college proved that we have plenty of local talent which will be largely drawn upon, though we are not yet at lib erty to specify. We cannot, how ever, refrain., from whispering that the sweet little songstress who was prima dimna when "The Little Mika do" was played here, will be heard from on the occasion. This concert will evidently be the social event of the season. D. F. W. filing ah Pnl ' uu un mm ui T. A.

Luther Davis Dead. A telegram was received this morn ing by J. M. Fowlkes announcing the death of Luther Davis, formerly of this place, at Springfield. The death occurred at 9:30. Mr. Davis was a brother-in-law to Jos. M. Fowlkes and was well known in the city. His death was a great surprise, as he was not reported seriously ill until within an hour or two of his decease. His remains will be Drought to the city at 8:23 to-night, and buried from Bethel church at Sango to-morrow at 10 a. m. At the ClarksTille Dental Parlors.

Clardy, a prominent citizen of district No. 4, who is a member of the Executive Committee, and is always at his post when public duty calls, took a leading part in the mat ter that was betore the committee, favoring Saturday, the 17th of May, at 8 o'clock, as the most suitable time for holding the district prima ries to send delegates to the County Convention, Saturday, May 24. He said the farmers were very well or ganized anyway, and four weeks was ample time to give due notice all over the county. Mr. Clardy mixes around among th farmers a trood deal, and it is a very good index to political sent! ment The people, he says, want a man for governor who is every way caDable and free from the influence of combinations and rings, with sufficient brains and independence to manage State affairs in a busi ness way, and for the good of all the epeople. They want no man who can be made the tool of any class or combination, nor do they wish one who will run the State government on the principle of stock speculation, corner lots and mining booms. The convention has been called; now let the farmers meet at their re spective precincts May 17, express their sentiments and send good dele gations to the county convention and thov will have no occasion to com plain at anything that may be done, Harmonious action is what we want, and will have if all come with the the proper spirit.
