15 CENTS PER WEEK. BEANDON A BARKSDA.LE, PROP'S. WHAT ABE WE GOING TO SO ABOTJI ITP Clarksville has suffered many ca lamities and misfortunes ; we have gone through financial panics, follow ed by serious failures in all lines of trade; the tobacco interest has suf fered many reverses ; wo have suf fered Irom floods and cyclones, and been twice nearly swept from the face of the earth by Are, and none of these misfortunes, great as they have been for a city of its size, ever daunted the courage of our plucky citizens, but on the contrary have served to quicken every energy, strengthen every nerve, develop new resources and larger business capacity, founded on experience, and instead of yielding to over-shadowing dif ficulties and apparently Insur mountable barriers, we have breasted every storm, over-riding the fierce waves with increased speed, attain ing & degree of prosperity and solid growth that places the city in the front rank of enterprise and progress. Now what shall we do In the pres ent emergency? Will our spirited citizens succumb to a little financial Hurry, not half so serious in loss as the big fire of 1878 ? No, never ! let us pick our flints and make another charge ; long faces and briny tears will not overcome anything. Cour age, energy and determined purpose Is the motto. There is nothing gained in trying to Bcrape up spilt milk. Let us have no relaxation, no talk of setting the town back ten years, or other such wild nonsense it will not if every man proves loyal and true to the best interest of the city, as in the past. Let business men and financial heads meet and take action to inspire confidence. Bring out the money hoarded away in the old stocking and put it where it will do some good. Combine your capi tal and start new enterprises and not over do one thing by all going into the grocery business. Let the money out, employ it in producing some thing, and in three months we will not realize that there ever was a panic. If Clarksville had given the New York World's charming correspon dent when she was here 1500 to write up tho town, we would have had none of this Hurry. Tom Ledford, an industrious and prosperous colored farmer of the Roaring Spring district, lost his en tire crop of tobacco by fire last Thurs day night. It is supposed to have been tho work of incendiaries. Whether or not there is, any clue to the perpetrators of the vicious deed wo have been unable to learn. C'a diz Tdeplwne. Bell, Ky.

Gardner, of Vistula, Ind., lived two thousand years ago she would have been thouent to be pos sessed by evil spirits. She was subject to nervous prostration, headaches, dizziness, backache, palpation , and forty to fifty spasms a day. Though having been treated by eight physi cians for years without success, she was permanently cured by one bottle or Dr. Miles' Kestorative Nervine. A trial bottle of this new and wonderful medicine, and a finely illustrated treatise free at Owen& Moore's drug store, who recommend and guarantee it. To Merchants. The publishers of the Leaf Chuoniclk desire to keep- their ad vertising columns as fresh as possi ble, and to this end they afford its patrons unusual latitude in frequent changes.

The vast amount of labor performed by the heart in keeping all portions of the uooy supplied, with blood is not generally known. It beats 100,000 times, and forces the blood at the rate of 168 miles a day which is 3,000,000,- 000 times and 5,150,880 miles in a life time. No wonder there is so many heart failures. The first symptoms are shortness of breath when exercis ing, pain in the side or stomach, flutter ing, choking in throat, oppression, then follow weak, hungry or smother ing spells, swolen ankles, etc. Dr. Franklin Miles' New Heart Cure is the only reliable remedy. Sold by Owen fe Moore. The Cause ol Poor Health Is often found in the neglect of one's own self.

WOMAN AND HOME DREGS AND REFORMER ON CORSETS PHYSICAL CULTURE. Famous Women Waiter Fixing Up the Boy's Room Symptoms of Crooked Spine HcuutlPi of a Contented Mind. Good Things for Wives anil Mothers. Ii-'jitiintly one AiixKcsts that the corset Is n unnatural ami uuhealthful article of clothing the alarmed woman of fashion exclaims that Ue must have the support; thiit sprout tint wiusU and hunting bo urns, like those of the hard working peas aut woman, are ungraceful aud disgust- iiig. Hbe is both right and wrong if our render cnu uiiilorstaticl the paradox, but there is no mora reason vvby the woman who has time for tho development of ele gant proportions should have the spread out iippearance anil clumsy waist and bust proportions of the peasant woman than why her slender, tapering hands should grow into a resemblance to those of the peasant. Certain conditions of life favor certain condit ions of physical evolution, and what we claim and can prove by actual demon stration is that firm, well shaped busts aud tapering and symmetrical waists are matters of physical development, and the cultivation of correct physical relations is neceniary to insure tho success of healthful modes of dress. With the corset oar principal point of at tack is the steel which presses upon the stomach, the abdomen and diaphragm, givioga tendency toward a round shoul dered or bent position of the body, which is ungraceful and awkward, lieside doing physiological harm. We have never made any serious attack upon the whaleboned waists for thoxe who wish them, aud it may be well to sy at this writiug that there Is a. point to which the waist will cer tainly spread if the corsets are left olf and physical development neglected that will be neither graceful, beautiful nor necessa rily bealthful. Jenness-Miller Magazine. Women W liters. Tho Irresponsible femli'inn free lance, with her gay flush ut all subjects, and her alliterative pen name dancing iu every melea like a brilliant ponuou, has gone over into tho moro appropriate field of journalism. The calmly adequate literary matron of all work is an admirable type of the past, no longer developed by the new conditions. Tho article of the late Lucy M. Mitchell on sculpture, and of Mrs. Schuyler van itensselner on art and architecture; the historical work of Martha J. Lamb and of the lamented Mary L, Booth, the latter also an indefatigable translator; the stud ies of Helen Campbell in social science; the translations of Harriet Waters Preston theso few examples are typical of the de termination aud concentration of woman's work ut the present day. We notice in each new issue of a maga zine the well known specialists. Miss Thomas has given herself to the interpre tation of nature, in prose as in verse; "Ol ive Thome" Miller to the loving study of bird life. Mrs. Jackson, the most versatile of later writers, possessed the rare combi nation of versatility and thoroughness in such measure that we might almost copy ' Hartley Coleridge's saying of Harriet Martineau uud call her a specialist about everything; but her name will bo associ ated with the earnest presentation of the wrougs of the Indian, us that of Emma Lazarus with the impassioned defense of the rights of the .lews. Helen Gray Cone tn Century. "The Boy's Room." I "fixed up" my boy's room out of as un promising a lot of material as usually falls to the lot of mothers to work with an odd lotof f urnit ure, no two pieces alike, except a set of bottomless chairs. A commode and fancy back to an old bureau we built (my boy and I) out of dry goods boxes, The chairs we bought perforated bottoms for, and fastened then! in with brass head ed tacks, then stained them all with black walnut stain previous to varnishing. decorated the bedstead, bureau and com mode with a fruit picture which the mer chant kindly saved for me from his pieces of cotton cloth. I had twelve pictures. with which I made a handsome decorated set of furniture. 1 papered t he walls with paper, cream colored ground, covered with a running vine with crimson buds peeping out, giv ing a rich warm tone to the room. I had an old Ingram carpet, urab ground with a pattern of different shades of wood color tn running -vino. This I ripped apart, washed each breadth and colored a portion or it crimson with dye. The dye colored the drab ground beautifully, while it only made the wood colors a little darker; so hero was my carpet to match the rest of the room. The draperies of turkey red, with lam brequin of cream color made of perforated shelf paper, harmonized with the other furnishings and made a cozy room for my boy, and it all cost less than live dollars. Tho girls say their brother's room is pret tier than theirs, and I am repaid for my labor in witnessing his enjoyment. Cor. Springfield Homestead. Symptoms of Crooked Spine. Crooked spine occurs for the most part In strumous children. v hen the curva ture is so marked as to attract the atten tion of the parents, when it is really visi ble to the seuse of sight, there is no mis taking the disease for anything else, and the belief is generally expressed t hat the little one has had a fall or mischance of some kind and has injured tho spine. This may or may not have wen, for although Injury might encourage the deposition of tubercle 111 any particular part, it is read ily enough deposited in certain situations without anything accidental having oc curred. But before the actual deformity is visible to the non-medical eve other symptoms will be noted; the child will be pale and :oft and sickly, and subject to pains about the chest and stomach. Sometimes a boy or girl in the earlier stages of this com plaint will have an old or old fashioned look, and the mind is often highly devel oped at the expense of the body. This is of course not invariably thecase. The child, however, early evinces a weakness in ris ing up from a chair or lifting itself up in bed. Thero is a peculiarity iu gait, too, the desire Iniing to save all weight from rest ing on the spine. The hands will therefore be freely used to aid motion forward, the child catching at things for support, while the head even will be borne on one side. In addition to this we have generally .stunted growth, ilifiicult action of bowels, coldness of extremities and disturbed sleep. Cas sell's Family Magazine. Contentment.
