A fatal mistake was made in tak ing medicine in South Clnrksville about noon yesterday. Mrs. K. Down ing, wife of Cyrus Downing, w ho came here with the Bending Works people from Collins, O., was taken with a slight attack of dyswitfry and took corrosive sublimate fur laudanum. When the family left Collins, O., they gathered up all the medicine in their home and put it in a box and shipped it here. When Mrs. Down ing was taken ill yesterday she and her husband went to the medicine chest and got out what they sup posed was a bottle of medicine she should use. They both tasted of it and were certain they were right. The lady took a large dose of the deadly drug and died in great agony forty minutes thereafter. Drs. Itun yonand Marable were summoned, but were too late to save the unfor tunate woman's life. lhe remains were embnimed by Johu F. Couts and shipped to Col lms, Ohio, this morning for inter ment. L. N.

The society boys of the city were knocked out, using a street phrase, this morning by the news coming in from the Springs that a Micawber party would be given out there to morrow night. They hd heard ol progressive euchro parties, lawn par ties, pink teas and such like, but a Micawber party" downed them JNot one of them knew anything about it. It was irotten un bv a par ty of young ladies at the Springs, and the man who brought the news to town could not enlighten the cur: ous on the subject. A lady informed a Leaf-Chronicle reporter, how- ever, that the "party" is founded on Dickens' well known character in David Copperlield, Wilkins J. Mi cawber, who was always expecting some circumstance to present itsell whereby ho would be benefited. By this it would seem that the party of young people will assemble at the springs, and whatever circumstance comes up by which amusement for the evening can be had the program will be followed out. It is new and will attract quite a crowd from the city. Cerulean is getting up a "Garden Party" for to morrow night. Sev eral young gentlemen are intending to go from here to the party. His Farewell Sermon. H .. Ivtl-tl ... ... - in. u. jteney ueiivereu rus lare- weii sermon loine uauutin congre gation last night. lie took the fol lowing passage of Scripture for his text: "Ye blind guides which strain at a gnat and swallow a camel." lhe sermon is pronounced by the American's correspondent as the master sermon of the preacher's life. He assumed the position that both political parties had promised the prohibitionists much and done little in the way of fulfilling these prom ises. The Leaf-Chkoniclk's state ments and predictions concerning the tobacco situation, and especially the dark crop, are being verified from all quarters. The Western To bacco Journal, Cinciiiuuti, has full reports from all growing sections, from which we make extracts. That paper says editorially: It is evident that the discouraging news asjto the acieage ami condition of the crop of dark tobacco out this year is atlecting values in the market centers for this class of tobacco, and it looks as if the advance has only begun on the better grades, though it is predicrert by many that all grades will show a decided advance before the year is over. Outside of Ken tucky and Tennessee it is evident the product in the West will cut a very little figure, and if the report we near irom mese states are any thing near the true situation, the 18')0i)ark crop w ill be almost if not the smallest crop since 1874, and some even claim that it will be really as short as the 1875 crop. Cumberland county, Ky., reports 2) per cent, of an average crop planted while the condition is very low. Green river district reports dark tobacco still selling under cost of production. Lat year we made a half crop compared with 1888 that is 80,000 hogsheads against 143,000 for 1883-a reduction of 0.1,000 hogsheads in nresent stocks. The crop this year is not over 40 per cent, of the 88 plant ing which will greatly reduce the stocks for 1801. The prospect for the growing crop is very poor. Illinois, practically has no crop, only al out 200 hogsheads as com pared with 5,200 hogsheads in aver age years, and dry weather prevails. This Indicates a shortage of 5,000 in nondescript grades and should stimulate planters of the Clarksville district to do th ir best to make a fine crop in quality this year. Missouri presents a very gloomy out look. The drouth is very severe: Carroll, Livingston, Linn, Macon, Randolph, Ilttward, Salinoand Char- iion counties leport the planting not over one-third of last vear's cron. ostly late planting. Virginia, North and South Carolina present a more favorable prospect. The plant ing is nearly equal to last year's crop, while good rains have prevailed lately. There can bo no doubt that this will bo the shortest crop raised since 1874, especially in dark grades, and and our farmers will onlv have to nake a good quality, keep the worms oil', let it ripen well, give good house room and hrtndle neatly, to secure good prices. The market is already too high for the Regie contractors, and the light is to meet the German ind other open market demands and let the Regies wait for the 1891 crop. District Convention Aug-. 9th. According to a resolution adopted at the last county convention every district in the county will hold meet ings at their respective voting pre cincts Saturday, August i)lh, to ap point delegates to a county conven tion to nominate candidates for the legislature and elect members for the Executive Committee. The County Convention will appoint also dele gates to the senatorial and iloaterial conventions. A Memento of the Thrilling Events of July 8. 1864. This is the day that a number of our citizens held sacred in memory -events thnt tried men's courage. It is the twenty-sixth anniversary of the battle of Atlanta, in w hich so many of our boys were engaged Col. W. F. Young commanded the 49th and 42d Tennessee regimeuSs and was leading the charge on the enemy's musket worts on Lick Skillet road amid a shower of bullets, when sixty-three bravo men fell. Col. Young still has the silver watch which he carried in his left vest pocket at the time, and which stop ped a mlnie-ball that was going straight to his heart. Three balls paased through his clothing and two through his right arm, cutting it otF. Capt. Dunlop, of Charlotte, was killed in the act of carrying Col. Young from the field, and Capt Tho. II. Smith assumed command of the regiment after sii of hia supe rior officers had fallen. Polk G, Johnson, C. II. Bailey, Jas. Wells and many other Clarksville boys were in this severe struggle. Robt Goostree and Capt. Jas. B. Howard were killed in this fight. Oue sing ular circumstance, Polk G. Johnson, who was in this fight, and whom his comrades loved as a brother for the manly and noble traits that ever characterized his life, died one year ago to-day, the 25th anniversary of this battle, and just at the hour that the regiment entered the fight. Col. Young says tho watch saved hia life long enough for him to earn $20,000 and therefore it is worth that sum, and he would not part witli it for any consideration. Fire at Glenellen.

While this might le some improve ment, if the brethren will think about the matter, it is not' safe to take a Methodist musk into a Bap tist meeting. Frank G. Wake returned Saturday tnorning fit)in making an inspection of the tobacco crop. He has been all over the country and reports that, though in some localities rain has been plentiful, there are many places where the crops have been material ly tlamiged by dry weather.

They should have a right to do whatever will ben efit the instituion, and no one can deny that the w idening and grading of College street will greatly benefit the property. The University has a large ironr lawn ana can spare more than ten fiet of ground that would never be missed. It is not wonh one dollar to the University as it now stands, but by cutting olF ten feet to the street and grading it down properly it will give the Uni versity buildings a more sightly and attractive elevation, besides limiting it tho best and most popular .street in the city. The city Board is unani mous iu favor of this improvement. The citizens all along the street are anxious for it and freely give off the required ten feet. The citizens if the town are for it because of the pride they feel in tho University ami the desire to see College eon verted into a beautiful driving street ornamental to the city. The city of Clarksville has done a great deal for the institution and pro poses by the enterprise to spend more money in that direction that will benefit the University ten times the worth of the ground asked, and with such general sentiment prevailing in favor of the improvement the trustees cannot, in our opinion, af ford to hesitate one moment on so whimsical a technicality. They can not satisfy the community that they have no such a right under the cir cumstances. Tobacco Items.

The Louisville Farmer's Home Journal notes the sale of ten hogsheads Bur ley by A. M. Shook, of Shelby coun- ty, Ky., through the Globe house at $33.00 to $20.50, making an average of $29 per hundred for the crop. Butler county some weeks no put the average planting at 30 per cent, now the estimate is reduced to 20 per cent. in acreage and very bad condition. The prospects in Carroll, Owen, Henry and Trimble are worse than ever known. The Lexington Gazette says J. D. Sutton grew 14 acres tobacco last year which yielded 13,050 pounds, which he sold for 10 cents round. BEEF TONGUES !
