Good Crops, Plenty of Money and a Bet ter Feeling 1b About the Sixe of It. The past two weeks have been un usually dull in a business way for Clarksville, and some people are in clined to grumble. The reason for this dullness is the fact that the farmers are all busily engaged saving their tobacco crops. This is all there is In it, and it will prove a blessing to the merchants of the city. The re ports that come from the various sec tions of the Western tobacco belt are of a very encouraging nature. The tobacco crop is good and it is being housed In excellent condition. It is estimated that two-thirds of the crop is now In the barns, and much of it has been housed the past week. This is what ia keeping country people from the city. When they get their crops all gathered tbey will come in to purchase their fall , aud wioter goods, and mark the prediction: They will buy more this fall than they have at any time for the past five years. The country is full of money and is going to be fuller. The aver age farmer grew more wheat this season than usual. 'Tis true he re ceived a low price for it, but he had more bushels than ever, consequent ly the round-up was above tho aver ago. This money has not all been spent yet, and the surplus left over from this source will be used in pur chasing fall goods. This will begin with the next rain. Then so soon as Vie tobacco season opens money will be advanced on tobacco. This will make the trade just before Christinas brisk. People are bound to have clothing and it la only a matter of time before they will be in the mark et. Right here tho Leaf-Chroni cle begs to say that some merchants are making a mistake by not adver tising their goods now, bo the people will know where to come when thoy get ready to buy. A merchant very often says, "Oh, there is no use to au- That old adage "in time of peace prepare for war" comes in handily here and covers the ground. The merchant who proposes to bo in the procession must blow his horn and let the people know where he is. The Leaf-Chronicle takes advertising with the understanding that if it is not read by more people than any paper published in this section, money will be refunded. Merchants will be waited on at any time and advertising rates will be cheerfully given. This fall and winter will see pros perous times in this country. There is a better tPolijg all along tho line ; there is something in the wind that makes a man believe this. Good crons have been promised. The Gracey-Woodward iurnace will soon be making iron, employing hundreds of men. They will get their money every Saturday night and will spend It in Clarksvillo. This will bo a great help in mercantile circles. The rat tie of sil ver dollars cheers the laborer; an increase of cash sales encourages the merchant. There is a boom in tho building circles. Many new houses are now in course of erection; others have been contracted for. This all says to the carpenter: "You will have plenty of work this fall." The carpenter's money goes into the channels of trade and makes everything more lively All these things taken up and bunch ed together, leads the Leaf-Chron icle to believe what Is embodied in tho foregoing, and it congratulates all citizens on the bright outlook.

Much Excitement Caused a Old Ptnt Comfort. The Secretary of War Deeiaes kat all Hotels and OMter Baildlnfrs Must Be Torn Down. Many people In Clatksville Will be Interested in the following dispatch sent out from Fortress Mon roe, Old Pojot Comfort, Thursday : "The citizens residing on the Gov ernment reservation of Fortress Mon roe have been thrown into a state of excitement owii;g to the receipt of a general order by. the Secretary of War peremptorily ordering that every house, including ine iiyge and Chamberlain's new hotel, be vacated within fifteen days from the time of the Issuing of the order,which L dated September 14, 1892, and far ther ordering the removal and tear log down of all buildings at the own er's expense. ".The act of Congress, dated March, 1SG8, gives the Secretary full power in this matter, and the order is is sued, it is understood, because of the failure of eiiizens Jiaviug residences and hotels on the reservation to com ply with the request from the En gineer's Department that plans and specifications for a proper sewerage in the oitiaons' quarters at the tort be handed into the department. 'There is from four to five million dollars' worth of properly on the spot, with great Interests held by railroads and othpr transportation companies, and there is no doubt but that strong pressure will be brought upon tho Secretary to have him mod ify his order, which, if carried out, would be very disastrous to the whole viciuity, including Norfolk, Hauup ton and Newport News." Many years ago these hoi els were erected on government property vs ith the understanding that they would not be molested unless In case of war, and it become necessary to man the fort. It seems, however, that the Secretary of War hts dipped hia pen in a little ink and has condemned over four million dollars worth of nrivate property at one stroke. The Clarksvillo people who go to Old Point Comfort during thesrtmmer al ways stop at tho IlygeLi hotel, and thev will reeret that It must be torn down.
