A called meeting of the Clarksville Fire Department was held at the city hall last night for the purpose of taking appropriate action on the death of one of its members, Charles L. Jones, who died at his place of residence last evening on First street. . Mr. Jones was a good fireman, but a very poor man, and the depart ment found it necessary to defray the burial expenses. A committee on resolutions was appointed and re ported as follows : Since It has pleased the Allwise Being to take from our midst our brother fireman, Charles L. Jones, be it therefore Resolved, That we deeply deplore his loss as a noble and brave fireman, and tender our heartfelt sympathies to his bereaved family, and that a copy or the resolutions be spread upon the minutes, a copy furnished the family of the deceased, and also the city papers for publication. F. M. Morrison, It. E. Burchett, Com. J. It. Sensing. ) The deceased was a laboring man entirely dependent upon his work for a livelihood. He leaves a wife and several small children in almost destitute circumstances. The re mains were taken in hand by a'com m it tee of firemen and shipped to Corbandale. where the interment takes place to-day. The action of the Fire Department is commendable, but should not the city bear this expense, and not the firemen, whose work for the city but a labor of love and wholly unre- muoerated ? EFFECT OF THE BENDING WORKS Let Us Take Another Step and Bid For Store Buoh Enterprises, The advance in real estate here may be observed in a transaction that occurred a few days ago. Some eighteen months since Henry Mer ritt bought a lot of Weill on the Itus- sellville pike this side of the bridge (the old brick yard in the grove) con taining eight acres, for which he paid $800. The price was thought extremely high at that time, as there was no demand for property in that vicinity. The other day he sold half of the lot to It. D. Moseley for $1,250 Mr. Moseley was very soon offered $1 ,- 800 for his purchase and declined the offer, pricing the property at $2,000 The Bending Works has been located in that vicinity. Mr. Merritt head ed the subscription to that enter prise with $200, and worked faith fully to get it up, not knowing where it would locate, and lias realized an advance of $1,700 on his property be fore paying his subscription. Other people who subscribed to it are in the same lino of good fortune scarcely a man who put ins name to that paper who has not or will not in some way realize a two-fold benefit before paying the subscrip tlon. The leason to be drawn from this is, we should not set down nnd wait for good things to come to us, but put on foot at once a move to secure some other such manufactory. He Stole the Tools. For some time past the overseer of the railroad boarding cur, nt the Itus sellville pike crossing, has been missing carpenter's tools from the car. Monday evening a man went to C. D. Bailey's oflice and swore out a warrant charging Dave Humphries, colored, with the theft. The war rant was put Into the hand of Sher iff Staton, who soon located his man near St. Bethlehem, living on a farm. When accosted about the theft the negro denied it strenuously, but the sheriff was armed with a search warrant, and going up into the loft he found the tools, which were readily recognized as the ones belonging to the railroad men. The negro was brought before 'Semi re Bailey and in default of a $500 bond was sent to Jail. Bunaway Avenue. Recorder Bailey says ho lives on the corner of Main street and Hun away avenue. This avenue gets its name from the fact that four or five runaway couples are now living hap pily in that locality. The Recorder says it is one of the most quiet neigh borhoods in the city from the fact that there are no domestic brawls to disturb the serenity of the home cir cle. Our Domestic) Animals.

Clark's Company Takes the Prise In the Drill Contest, Bnt Not In a Gallop. There was an immense throng of people at Elder's opera-house last night to witness the presentation of the Festival of Commercia by the ladies of Clarksville. It was re marked by many that it was the largest crowd that had been in the house this year. The first scene opens with a tab leau, the priestess, Miss Maria Stacker, kneeling at the shrine of Commercia. The priestess then rises and speaks the mipd of the oracle. This was well done by Miss Stacker. Her elocution is excellent. After the speech by the priestess the leader of the embassy, Miss Birdie Willis, entered and bowing at the shrine received a welcome from the priestess. The second scene is really where the most interest is centred. The god dess on the throne, surrounded by the embassy with flags and banners, makes a picture. Miss Susie Belle Daniel had the honor of taking the throne, and she looked every inch a goddess. She pronounced her bless- ing on the embassy and bade the Festival proceed. Young ladies, representing the various business firms of the city, advanced and kneel ing at the feet of the goddess made their offerings. The offerings con sisted of some article in the line with the business represented by the re spective young ladies. The different representations were as follows Goddess ..Mlss Susie Belle Daniel, Priestess ......... ..Miss Marian Stacker Lender of Embassy, MIhs Birdies Willi Miss Minnie Robb.Lakcview Flower Uurden.

Cents, ' Susie 8belby Progress. " Kathleen O'Brien Electric Light Co, As the young ladies made their of ferings to the goddess they delivered a short speech containing some senti ment in regard to their industry. These were interesting and elicited encore alter encore. Miss Mary Caldwell made the hit of the even ing. She represented S. Oppen lieimer, the dealer in scrap iron and skins, nnd gave the goddess any thing from a wharf rat to a Tolar bear. It is out of the question to try to give a synopsis of all that was done and said in this scene. Miss Eva Fauche, however, represented the Tobacco Leaf-Chronicle, nnd when she laid a late paper at the feet of the goddess, there was n smile of satisfaction seen to spread over the fares of all they knew they were safe. At the close of the offerings to the goddess the young ladies be gan marching, and it almost made one's head swim to follow them with the eye through the many laby rinthine mazes as they circled round the throne. When the curtain rose on the third and last scene, it was to wit ness the competitive drill between Capts. Caldwell's nnd Clark's com panies of young ladies. Capt. Cald well's company drilled first. They were all good, and; speculation was rife in the audience as to which com pany would get the prize. Capt. Clark's company was the last to drill, and after the judges, Clay Stacker, Oracey Childers, Sam Hodgson, Jr., and Ernest Elder, had conlerred for several minutes, a yell was heard behind the .itage and it was an nounced that Capt. Clark's company hud won. R. A. 1 laden then pre sented the prize, a basket of flowers, and the curtain fell. Capt. Clark's company may rest assured that it did not win the prize in a gallop. Both companies were well drilled and it was hard for the judges to decide which had won. It was diamond cut diamond. That the ladies made a success every way with their commercial festival is a fact, and the Leak Chronicle takes pleasure in noting the attendance of so many citizens.

A desperate effort was made here last week to show that this county was in a blaze of enthusiasm for Jere Baxter for governor, which was in every way misleading. Mr. Bax ter has no opeu enemies here ; the people regard him as a, jolly good fellow and enjoy the fun he is hav ing in the campaign, and some would take him in preference to other candidates in the field, but there is no serious intention of mak ing him governor, consequently when interviewed many answered in a jocular way for Cousin Jere. lhe Leaf-Chronicle has taken occasion to see as many of the gen iiemen wno were interviewed as convenient and gives their expres sion of sentiments on the gubernato rial question as follows : J. J. Crusman, grocer and presi dent of Forbes Bivouac "I am a decided Daniel man as long as there is any chance. Favor a solid in struction and no second choice." M. A. Stratton, boot and shoe dealer. "I have expressed for Bax ter, not knowing of any move to bring out Daniel, but Daniel is my decided preference and am for him if it takes all the year for a noinlna tion." W. B. Kincannon, hardware deal er. "I am for Daniel: no second choice." Wm. Rosenfleld, millinery mer chant "I am for Daniel, of course, and so is everybody I know." C. II. Bailey, City Recorder "For Daniel first, last and all the time." Frank Fiederling, cigar manufac turer. "Well, I have just been read ing about Patterson, and told that fellow I was for Uncle Josiah, not thinking ho was going to print it, but of course I am for Daniel if he will run." ' W. J.'McCormac, photographer. "For Daniel first, last and all the time j that's the way I told the other fellow." , Jo Mattill, confectioner aTid Chief of Fire Department. "I am for Dan iel ; it looks like everybody ought to be. Capt. T. II. Smith, hardware mer chant. "Daniel all the time." -W. W. Joslin, harness dealer. "Daniel in preference to anybody Alex. Davidson, deputy county court clerk. "I am decidedly for Daniel." John Holmes, tobacconist. "I am for Daniel in preference to any one if there is any chance to nominate him." Polk Prince, farmer and stock breeder. "I am for Daniel, and so is all my district." Chas. llallums, tobacconist. "Dan iel is my favorite." F. P. Oracey, prominent citizen and capitalist "Billy Daniel is my man. " R. II. Burney, lawyer. "I am for bringing out Daniel and making the fight to the end ; ho will fill the bill v ith everybody." Miko Savage, State's attorney. "I said I was for a good Democrat, and so I am ; Daniel is my man, and I am for bringing him to the front nnd standing by him to the end." Jas. T. Wood, capitalist and opera house manager. "1 said I was for Baxter in preference to any one an nounced, but I am for Daniel before anybody." CI. L. Pitt, lawyer. "W. M. Dan iel has less mud in his brain than any man, and I am for him for gov ernor in preference to anybody." M. C. Pitman, Insurance agent. "For Daniel, as before stated." S. Katz, merchant. "I never said I whs for Baxter j I told the gentle man who interviewed me that I was opposed to any man who Is running over the State asking to be made governor. The place is not one to be sought after in such a way, and it is as immodest 'as it would be for a doctor to run around begging for practice. The people know who they want and are capable of bring ing out the right man. I am not for Baxter, but for Daniel, in the conven tion." Albert Green, salesman. "I never said I was for Baxter; I was not in terviewed at all ; I am for Daniel." John Shelton, president street rail way. "As a matter of course I am for Daniel if he can be induced to run for him against anybody." Samuel Hodgson, marble nnd monument dealer. "I said I had not made up my mind, but I am for Daniel."; W. R. Bringhurst, Franklin House. "Said I was for House, but rather JOHN A1AMS. (Uite of Adam, Ulll A Co.) ATi A TT P, (SUCCESSORS TO E. W. CUNNINGHAM,) Wholesale and Kctail Dealers in STAPLE AND FANCY GROCERIES Field Seeds, Com, Hay and Bran, SlllV Hook-Keeper C. W. Beaumont than have him leave the State I will take Daniel for my choice." G. R. Harris, confectioner. "Of course I am for Daniel, if he will al low his name used." S. Oppenheimer. '"Stick to what I first said; I am for Daniel all the time. He will make the best govern or the State ever had." A. Wettstein, barber. "I am for Daniel decidedly." T. R. Hancock, tobacconist. "Cer tainly, I am for Daniel." E. W. Harrison, real estato agent. "Yes, for Daniel straight throtfgh ; he is the man for' the place." E. B. Ely,' confectioner. "I told the gentleman I was for Daniel as long as there was a chance to nomi nate him, and did not authorize my name put down for Baxter, but said I would prefer him to .some others who are running for the office." 'Squire S. A. Caldwell. "I have expressed myself for Baxter on the information that Daniel's name would not go before the convention. As a matter of course, I am for Dan iel in preference to anybody." J. B. Johnson. "I told the gentle man that I was for Daniel if there was any chance for him at all, and did not expect my name published for Baxter." C. Mehigan, stove and tin dealer. "For Daniel." W. L. Perkins "Certainly, I am for Daniel ; he is the best man, and fit to be President." Three other gentlemen who had expressed preference for Baxter on the information that Daniel was not a candidate, desired their names left out of the interview, as they had not expected them published at first. These, with the exception of half a dozen the reporter has been unable to see, were nearly all used to boom Baxter. It is plain to be seen that but one sentiment prevails here, and the people are heart and soul in that. Never had a preparation a more appropriate name than Ayer's Hair JNigor.
