Gov. Jefferson Davis, of

Senator Huddleton with
great ability. This is not
surprising, when the fact is
taken into consideration that
acting Governor Hnddleton
was born and reared in Har
deman County.
The most reliable informa

crop prospects are encourag

to produce an abundant yield
of both corn and cotton is a

We have received a pros

expected to appear about the

the paper will be democratic

Van LeeuPolk, a gentleman
of talent, and not without ex
perience in newspaper work.
It is backed by some of the
most prominent businessmen
of Nashville and is capitaliz

ready has two dailies, the
American and Banner, but it
is said (not in the prospectus

states that Washington was
first to inaugurate presiden

New England. In these days
it is n. custom to sneak of the
R:mnlicitv of the fathers, but
M Thompson says Wash
traveled in more
state than did President Mc-

ton traveled in a coach drawn
by four horses. The uphols
terinsr of his chariot was of
royal satin. His arms were
emblazoned on the doors.
There were outriders with
trumpets, and he had six ser
vants and two secretaries in
his train. Twenty years lat
er, Monroe made his trip to
the east, journeying up the
Delaware River in a gorgeous
barge, lined with red velvet,
rowed by sixteen oarsmen in
crimson vests. Washington
extended his tour as far as
Portsmouth, N. H., and was
almost a month making a
journey, which with the pres
ent facilities for travel could
be accomplished in about
twenty-four hours. President
McKi nicy's journey was made
in less than three weeks and
in the days of Washington
it could only have been ac

at all, by a year or more of in
expressible hardship. Steam

The Brakesman's Request.
've just been thinking of the time,
As I sit here at home,
When' I -shall hear the call-boy'n
With orders for me to come
And go out for the last time
On this old troubled sphere ;
Where I shall have my ups and
downs ;
I'll sign the book, don't fear !
And when I cross the great'divide,
And meet some good old friend,
Who's dwelt since many years before
Where sorrows have an end ;
I wonder if I'll get a place
Upon the golden shore.
Where everything runs smoothly
And serving time is o'er;
Where they don't have correspon
About the damaged freight ;
Where switchmen are all gentlemen
And trains are never late;
Where engineer will wave just so
To-the signals they are given ?
I hope, I pray that some sweet day
I'll run a train in heaven,
Where wrecks are something quite
And trainmasters are kind ;
Where conductors dou't talk saucy,
Which down here is hard to find
Where everything is up-to-date
And none aristocratic;
Where all the cars have 'Westing
And couplers automatic;
Where they never double any hills
Or have to tote that chain,
And don't run any pick-ups,
And there's neither snow nor rain
Where each and all are under One
And none are on the hummer.
But of all that I wish for most
In that far distant land,
Is, should I tread the streets of gold
Aud with the angels stand,
That when I register on time
And home I start to go,
The wife and kid to greet me,
As they did on earth below. ,
So, when the call-boy comes for me
To journey o'er the river,
And I am asked to give account
By the kind and loving Giver,
If I can find the railroad
In that land that knows no pain
I only will have one request
And that to run a train.

which caused a valuable horse much suffering, but
from which permanent injury was avoided by the
timely use of Mexican Mustang Liniment.
La Grange, Tenn., Jan. C, 1901.
Lyon Manufacturing Co,
Brooklyn, N. V..
Dear Sirs: I will say that your Mexican Mnstarg
Liniment has done a wonderful cure in this part of the
country. I own the stallion known as the " State of Ten
nessee," who has a large patronage both far and near his
service this Spring to date is 102 mares. I was offered
$400x0 when he was two years old. I refused same." Then
some one took him from the stable and commenced with a
wire and wrapped the right leg from the foot up to his hip,
and after standing all night the leg had swollen so large as to
. hide the wire, and-in five days the leg bursted and the flesh
turned inside out. I spent large sums of money to have him
cured but up to five months ago it was quite a failure, and
then a friend induced me to try a bottle of yourjiniment. I
used one of the 25-cent bottles because I did not have much
faith in it, but it helped him so much that I bought a second,
third and fourth bottle, which completely cured him. The
reason it took so long to cure is that it had a kind of itching
sensation when it was healing a little, when he would bite it
with his teeth. I put the liniment on the wound with a feath
er and rubbed the swollen parts with my hand.
Mexican Mustang Liniment seemed to take out all the
itching as well as to cause it to heal rapidly, and he showed
no disposition to interfere with it. The one dollar purchase
has been worth hundreds, of dollars to me. I keep your
Liniment in my breeding stable all the time, and to those
who have horses I will say it is the best liniment that money
can buy. I will ansv er all inquiring letters.
-.Very truly yours,
