W. W. BARKSDALE. PROPRIETOR. If Mr. Cleveland proves as good at cutting off the heads or Republican office-holders as he is at shooting ducks, Democrats will rejoice. The tendency of cotton is sky ward. Estimate have been made which place the yield under bIx million bales, and this hits . caused a boom in the erstwhile southern king. Let It be remembered that Clark vllle Democrats are iuvited to Judge Turney's inauguration. The invita tion was extended from the Frank lin House portico by that distinguish ed gentleman himself. Weather Prophet Foster has not yet been interviewed on the comet but he is makinz predictions as far ahead as December 1, about which date he says a storm wave will crois our meridian. This is taken as prima facia evidence that Fester re gards the situation as encouraging. The Lbaf-Chroniclb publishes more live news matter than any paper ever published in this city, and it is read by twice as many people, from the fact that It has twice act large a circulation as any paper ever sent out from Clarksville. Bemem ber this, ye merchants who have wares to sell. It is the gospel truth We give space to day to an edito rial from the Memphis Commercial on a subject that is very dear to the people of the whole South that of erecting a monument to the memory of Jefferson Dvis. This monument should be erected and Southern money should pay fori it. It is! a debt we owe to the memory of great man. The Honklnsville New Era takes on n violent attack of the delirium tremens over the effort Clarksville is making to secure a canning fac tory. But Clarksvillejwill have that canning factory if she wants it, and she can raise the $.1,000 quicker; and easier than Hopkinsvllle raised the pitiful sum of $125, after promising $500, to aid the people of Herndon in receiving the next vice-president of the United States. Clarksville don't stand bark when anything suits her, remember that, fellow counltymen. Well, the hour in which the comet was to tackle old mother earth has pansed into history, and we are still living. The scientists are now giv ing it out that the comet, a few hours before it was to have run Into us, took a big scare and u veered ;off to leeward. That was;the only;sensible thing this inhabitant of our siderial system ever did. Enthused with the recent Democratic victory, the United States could have played him a lone hand and walked off with the championship belt. It is useless for a comet to fool with this country. Ifonument to Jefferaon Davis The erection of a monument to Jefferson Davis, says the Memphis Commercial, is a duty which the Southern people owe to themselves, to their posterity and to the memory of the noble dead. It, will be not alone a monument to the great chief tain, but a monument to the heroism, the devotion, the suffering patiently endured, aud the blood bravely shed upon every battle field irom Bull liuu to Appoiuatox. No worthier object could enjoy the patriotic efforts of our noble Southern womanhood. Jefferson Davis was a hero, a patriot, a statesman, and lor his devotion to his cause and his people he was made h martyr. Not only in the fact that he was persecuted with all the devil ish ingenuity of hatred while a pris oner of war ; that he was delivered into the hands of a brutal vulgarian, chained down in a filthy prison like a common felon or a beast of prey; but. In the fact that through all the remaining years of his life he was the chosen victim for all the coarse and brutal slander of a ribald partisan press, which defamed his character and motives for the basest of parti san purposes. There has hardly been anything in history to equal the bit terness, the malignity and cold blooded mendacity with which the white hairs of Jefferson Davis were pursued even to the grave, and which broke forth in a storm of vulgar calumny above his uncoiQned clay. And every slander aimed at him was a poisoned arrow aimed at his people. The grand old man, stripped of the birthright of citizenship in the laud for whose glory he had Mied his blood, eorn(uiy dumb and and proudly helpless, he was not their mark. Wherever his name was soiled in the foul mouths of his traducers the object was to arouse hatred and intensify evil passions against the people for w hom he had dared and endured so much ; to more easily make them the prey cal vultures that swarmed battle-fields of the South the) vitals of the wounded the flesh of the dead. The people of the South foar" to build a monument of politi over the to pluck and tear need not to Jeffer- son Davis. They rued not fear to write' thereon the epitaph that im partial history will write for him. It will be a monument that will speak no language of "treason," but will tell the story of, the love and the de- j iou vi a ii mj-uoni leu jit ujjio iy the memory of a chieftain, who was a nero'ltt " the storm - of tattle'-and more than a herb in the storm of malignant defamation that fell upon him in the day of his adversity. His monument will be a shrine to which every Southern mother can take her son and bid him study and emulate the virtues of him to whose memory it was raised. Do you wish to know the quickest way to cure a cold? We will tell you. To cure a cold quietly, it must be treated before the cold has become settled in the system. The first sym toms are a dry, loud cough and sneezing. The cough is soon follow ed by watery expectoration, and the sneezing by a profuse watery dis charge from the nose. In severe cases there is a thin white coating on the tongue. What to do : It Is onl necessary to take Chamberlain1 Cough remedy in double doses every houi. That will srreatly lessen the severity of the cold and in many cases will effectually counteract if, and cure what would have been a se vere cold within one r two days1 time. Try it and be convinced. 69 cent bottles for sale by Dwen Moore, druggists. TOR CONSUL TO HATI. Naahvllle Friende Will Vif W. Croethwalt for That Position. The many friends of W. A. Crosth wait, including prominent Demo crats, says the American, have de cided to urge him at the proper time for the post of Consul to Hayti. Mr. Crosthwait speaks French fluently and would in every way reflect credit upon the position and upon his government. The Tennessee Baptist of Nov. 26 says: "It is now the town-talk about Hon. W. A. Crosthwait succeeding Hon. J. S. Durham to minister' to Hayti. The Tennessee Baptist heart lly endorses Mr. Crosthwait for this appointment. As a scholar he stands among the leading educators of our race, having graduated from Fisu University with the class of 1889, He is a competent Greek, Latin French and German reader. As a lawyer he is one of the most brilliant of our race. As a christian gentle man his standing is very high. These characteristics make us endorse Mr, Crosthwait for the appointment. Mr. VVm. A. Crosthwait did a great work in the last campaign to place the South in the right light before the country. The good peoplo of Ten nessee want him to go to Hayti as minister. They are right; he should be sent there." American Cholera. Daily Reveille, Whatcom, Wash. T. 0.

The Rabbeth & July 1, dw.lyr PHILADELPHIA HIPPOPHAGI. ! - i The Menu Prepared for Their Flrat Din. ner, Shortly to Occur. A society has been formed to promote the anting of horsefleih. The headquarter! of this unique association are In Philadel phia, and its secretary is Charles Wilson Montgomery. As yet the members are few in number, but they make up for this de ficiency by their enthusiastic fondness for cooked horse. Secretary Montgomery is a comparatively young man, but his bronced complexion and numerous scars tell of an adventurous life by flood and field. Speak ing of the horseflesh society, he said: Our organisation is made tip of men who at some period of their lives were led by necessity or curiosity to taste what is vulgarly called "nag beef." A liking for horseflesh is as natural to man as a liking for mutton or beef. Consequently when any one eats horseflesh and finds It tooth' some he wants to repeat the experiment, Gradually a yearning for this kind of food springs up within him, and be longs to be able once more to Indulge his taste for equine steak. But horseflesh is not a deli' cacy that one finds In many American restaurants. It may figure largely in the culinary department of course, but It never appears on the bill of fare. About two months ago I happened to meet a party of gentlemen woo, like my aelf, bad knocked about the world a great deal. Our conversation resulted In the discovery that we had one particular taste in common namely, roast horse. After considerable discussion we agreed to in terest other friends similarly minded and to form a regular club. Thus began' toe Society for the Eating of Horseflesh. Bineo then we have secured twenty-three mem' bera, all of whom are fairly prominent per sons In Philadelphia, Pittsburg, Cine in natl, Chicago and elsewhere. We have agreed to have a horseflesh dinner In one or other of these cities every three months, and the first dinner is to take place in Philadelphia. Great difficulty was experienced by us in Inducing any restaurant keeper to aerve ns with the dinner we want. These men fear that their business would be ruined if It were to leak out that they cooked horse flesh. Finally, however, a down town caterer, who as a soldier in the war ate horse himself, agreed to gratify us on con dition that we keep his name secret. The members of the society have each a story to tell of how they flrat came to eat and like this unconventional article of food. Clyde M. Allen, of Cincinnati, one of our founders, added horse to his list of dishes while wandering in the northwest several years ago. Henry H. Fulton, of Chicago, a well known theatrical man, was forced to eat it during the famous siege of Paris. As he himself said, "It was a choice between horse and rats, and borse waAihosen." A popular police officer of thia city first masticated horse while serv ing with a detachment of the United States cavalry against the Apaches. Captain F. Kelly, of Pittsburg, was oa the "trek" in South Africa at the outbreak of the dia mond excitement, when starvation forced him and the men who were with him to kill and eat two of their horses. My own friendship for this much maligned food dates from the breaking of the engines be longing to the steamer St. Hilda in the In dian ooea ten years ago. The ship was carry lag a number of walers, or Australian horses, from Sydney to Horn bay when she met with the acci dent. I was one of the crew, and when our provisions gave out without the small est speck of land heaving in sight we Just tackled those horses. I tell you they beat salt Junk and weevilly biscuits all to fits, and when we were eventually taken ia tow by a friendly veasel we were fatter by sev eral lnchea in spite of our long drift.
