years old. The specimen was ucar

The court yard lias been im
proved since the weeds and grass
were mowed. It now has a decent
appearance, while before it would
have compared favorably with some
old neglected field. There are other
improvements, however, that could
and should be.inade. For instance,
on the north side, the shade is dense;
some of the trees should be remov
ed, and on tho east side shade trees
should be planted. In view of the
fact that every citizen in Hardeman
county has an interest in the court
yard, being taxed for its care, we
respectfully suggest that the Hon
orable County Court appropriate a
sufficient sum to purchase iron seats
to be placed in the yard for the use
of the public. The comfort and
convenience that would be derived
therefrom will greatly overbalance
the cos.

Cleveland, Tenn., June 11.
There will soon be a new company
in Cleveland, the Mutual Telephone
Company of Cleveland. When the
Cumberland Company raised the
price a few business men got togeth
er and decided to have a telephone
company- in Cleveland. They are
now organizing the Mutual and have
about 82,000 or 2,500. There will
be 5,000 worth of stock issued.
There is no trouble at all in getting
the stock taken. In fact, there are
several men now ready, each one of
them, to take all the stock, but it is
the intention to have the stock di
vided up into small holdings. They
have sixty-five subscribers now, but
want one hundred, or an average of
850 to the subscriber. Enough Al
dermen are pledged to insure the
franchise for the new company.
Old subscribers are refusing to
pay the higher rate demanded by
the Cumberland Telephone Compa
ny and twenty-five telephones were
taken out yesterday. Nashville

I was first advised Vr our family phTsician in
Charleston to use TEETHISA with our baby
when ghe was but a very yeung infant, as a pre
rentive of colic and to warm and sweeten the
stomach. Later it was useful in teething troubles,
and its effect has been found to be so rery benefici
al and bo free from dangers that are consequent up
on the use of drugs and soothing syrups, that we
have come to regard it, after use with three chil
dren, as one of the necessities when there is a new
baby in the house and until the teething troubles
are over, and we take pleasure in recommending it
to our friends instead of the horrid stuff that so
many people use to keep their babies quiet.

How Free Delivery Works.
Knoxville, Tenn., June 9. A
correspondent of the Journal and
Tribune at Jonesboro, Tenn., says
that rural free delivery has proven
very detrimental to the business at
that place. Rural free delivery was
early and quite generally established
in that section. It is claimed that
mail orders have become more com
mon and also that the mail carrier
is utilized as a purchaser for the
farmers of many articles at . the
towns, thus preventing the farmer
going to the towns and buying more
largely under the influence of the
salesman and the display of wares.
