It also endorses the pas sage by congress of the Federal elec tion bill, and requests its passage by the senate, with such amendments and modifications as that body may deem best for the "purity of the bal lot box." It further congratulates the country on the "wise solution of the silver question," Then going ahe.id in the old stereotyped style it arraigns the Democratic party for it "short comings'' and tries to show that Republicanism must triumpffor the country is lost.

One of our local weather prognosti cators would have had it rain some time ago in order to fulfill all un righteousness, but the elements re fused to be "coached." Some time ago he dipped into the future after rain, and went around narrating ga lore, that Satan would have a collis ion with Neptune about the .r)th of this month and Ret apart that day for rain, but failed to appear accord ing to program, and now his sun has set behind dry weather clouds. Crops are suffering greatly from the dry weather, especially corn, which in some instances is beginning to perish in the tassel. The wheat crop has been threshed and turned out alwut as expected considerably short. No "johnny cake,"- no bis cuit, no hog-killing. The question arises and refuses to "down," what are we to winter on ' Fortunately the rabbit crop is un usually large this year and unless the market is cornered we can prob ably weather through till the black berries come again. Tobacco is not suffering as much as might be sup posed, though the crops on thin lauds that have not been properly cultivated, are beginning to spindle up. It is thought ffie late planting will have to be cut green as the dry weather will keep it from ripening by frost. The prettiest and most promising crop ever seen at this time of year by the writer is a crop of about eighteen aens owned by C. M. Bourne. He has just finished top ping it and it is a beautiful sight to behold. The road committee met to-day to examine routes for the new Chirks- ville road. The opening of this road is a con summation devoutly wished by the people out this way, as it provides a way of getting to town without such an enormous tax being taken for toll from the little pile of hard cash hoarded up with which to purchase necessaries. Success to its early com pletion! Rev. Mr. Williams filled Rev. F. D. Srygley's appointment at Oak land, Mr. S. being prevented from coining by the death of a relative. Miss Jennie Bourne, an accom plished young lady of the Rossview neighborhood, has returned from a visit to Pittsburg, to the delight of her many friends here. She is now the guest of Prof. N. L. Whitfield's family. Miss Milhrey Whilaker, of Clarksville, was the guest of Mrs. V. P. Duulop last week. Mrs. J. W. Seott, we are glad to state, is much better at this writing. Chas. Williams and wife, of Clarksville, and Mrs. A. H. Mizell, of Nashville, spent Sunday with the family. of Prof. N. L. Whitfield. Miss Fan nie Moore, of Kentucky, and Ada W'hitaker, of Clarksville, were the guests of Miss Sallie Slaughter last week. Rev. Curtis Faulkner and family, who have been visiting the family of Uev. M. G. Carney for some time past, have returned to their home, Ripley, Tenn. Mrs Sain Bourne is able to attend to household duties again, after serious attack of flux. Miss Mattie Jones returned last Thursday from an extended visit to relatives and friends at Fulton, Ky.- Dr. S J. Rollow, of Ringgold, visited his father's family Monday. Little Lucy Watts, daughter of Will Watts, is recovering from flux. Dennis. Complaining of tho Drouth. ' J as. 3VS.Y OF INQUISITION. A. Hall Tried on a Writ of Lunacy and Found Insane. James A. Hall was tried here yes terday on a writ of lunacy. The jury of iuquisition was composed of the followjug gentlemen : T. L. King, J. M. Collier, John S. Neblett, L. B. Askew, D. A. Harrison, S. A. Caldwell, E. V. Harrison, John D. Moore, W. II. Bringhurst, S. B. Seat, M. C. Pitman and John W. Faxon. The jury, after hearing the testi mony of several parties, rendered a verdict that Jas. Hall was incapa ble mentally of governing himself, that during fits of insanity he would commit acts that were against the laws of the State, and furthermore recommended that he be confined in an asylum. He will be taken to the State Insane Asylum at Nashville aud there confined. Clarksville Tobacco Market. We have nothing new to report o: our market. Activity continues to prevail at strong but irregular prices. Some of the regular demands seem to have accepted the situation and keep in the market. A good, general rain may alter the position of mat ters, but the weather keeps dry and the crop in the field is delayed in its growth. The sales for the week will foot up perhaps 1,2(10 hogsheads.

The charges are made by the conductor through Su perintendent Dunn. The trouble seems to be that Pat Ginley has a small boy who has taken a desire to become a railroader and has been trying to run away and get on a train. A few nights ago the boy succeeded in boarding a train, but Pat found out he was gone and ar rived at the depot before the train had pulled out. He got the boy and was taking him home, when the trainmen say they interferred, and they say that Pat laid them ,ut right and left. Pat Ginley says, however, and there is not a man on the force who disbelieves him, that he never saw the men at all, and that the whole thing is false, further than he did go and take his son from the train. He says emphatically that he saw no man at the train. Announcement of Congressman "Washing-ton. The World's Fair.

The Leaf-Chiionici.e presents the card of Joseph E. Washington announcing his candidacy for re election to Congress. Mr, Washing ton makes a mot efficient represent ative, and we don't believe our peo ple have thought of anything else but returning him. He is young, vigorous, able, energetic, accommo dating and popular with the mem bers of Congress, as he is with his home people, which is no small con sideration in securing help on meas ures of importance. He is himself a farmer and heartily in accord with their movements to benefit the agri cultural situation, and we have no doubt that he will be returned by the unanimous counsel of the Demo cratic party. An esteemed Congressman writes that he wants the Daily Leaf Chronicle, and can't well do with out it ; that if we can't "exchange" with him just send on the "bill." We receive daily about a half dozen Congressional Records, but suppose we might improve by reading an other copy and ought to exchange but we rather like the suggestion of sending in the bill.

Corn, especially late planting and hill land, is suHVring jjreatly, burrlinjr, in fact, and will necessarily be cut very short. If the dry weather coutinius much longer the crop will he cut short one-half, if not two-thirds. Pastures have completely dried up and stock are suffering for both water and grazing. Late tobacco is simply standing on the hill, and does not seem to be growing a bit. the plants being but a little 'larger than when set out. ood rains would hrinir this out amazingly, but not in time to ripen before the 10th day of Octo her, when there will be great (lunger of frost. It looks now as if the crop will not be much, if any, better than the 1H74 planting. Mili-'i Norve and Liv'r Pills. Aii important discovery.
