While Mr. McKiniey ban caused ureal coir to H)ivin out of the ground all over the United States, it is just as reasonable to be expected that he will be credited with causing the ureal nhortae in the wheat, rye- and other urain crops in India, Russia and Kurojui ai.d tho unprecedent ed demand that ia being made (or our sur plus of these crop. To satisfy a subscriber, wo w ill say that the money of the United States pld, sil ver and bank notes is good onout'li (what there is of it). If we only bad enough of it in circulation and silver was shorn of legislative discrimination with the pres ent magnificent crops we would have uni versal "prosperity," and "dollar wheat" would bo "dollar and a half wheat." Sevekal candidates have practically announced themselves for sheriff in thin county, and e idences are not lacking that tho campaign next year will le a warm one from start to (itiibh. We may be par doned for opposing a campaign at this early date, as there would be imminent danger of some of the prospective candi dates becoming overheated from so lomj and persistent a chase. The Western and Southern farmers are now having bouquets showered on them by the East em press and financiers for the very bountuul crops they have raised and which are bringing "prosperity." A few months ago these fame farmers wero be ing denounced by the Eastern press and (inanviersas 'Anarchists who want to de stroy the Government." Which shows once more that it all depends on the point 01 view, 5i. i.ouis ikcpuuiic. The gold wing of the Democratic party will hold a conference at JNashville Sep tcmber 15 to perfect a State organization It is authoritatively stated that unless there is some kind of a compromise they will put a State ticket in the lield next year. Of course this is a blull, and will be promptly called at the proper time by the regular Democratic party. Certainly Josiah Patterson and his followers could have no hope of electing such a ticket. Wouldn't it bo just as consistent and more economical to give their vote direct to the Kepubhcan ticket next year ; 1 !--! No higher compliment could be paid the South, says tho Jackson Whig, than to state the fact, that this section surviv ed the war, carpet bag rule, the pension swindles, Kepublican high tariff steals, trusts and combines, and yet our people owe less and have tewer mortgages than itnv other nart of the- American union. We have a great country, a great people, and possess more vitality than the pro verbial cat. Notwithstanding the legis latives robberies persistently perpetrated by the Republican party, tho South con tinaes to wax fat and llourish because lVovidenco smiles upon her with bounti ful harvests. Next year is an oil' year in politics, so called, bntorganized monopoly is not idle. Especially is this true in Tennessee, and the motive is clearly apparent to a casual observer. The general assembly elected next year will choose successors to the la mented Isham G. Harris and William B. Bate. Free silver men are not wanted by bankers, bondholders, and all other beneficiaries of national legislation, and they propose to put up a stromr light lor one and perhaps both of the Tennessee Senators. One of the means to this end lias already been tnaugrated in buying or establishing newspapers which will be controlled by men of both parties but who are in sympathy with this movement. It is time for the sturdy Democrats of the old-Volunteer State buckle on their armor and be prepared for a light fo political rights and principles. LOCAL AND PERSONAL NEWS.

Tho season of July flies, katydids and crickets is drawing to a closo. What "Jack" will shortly do for their brief ca reer will bo a plenty. Marriarre licenses have been issued by County Clerk G. D.

John Marchbanksof tho tenth district, son of William Marchbanks, died Tues day night, of brain fever, after an illueus of three weeks. Tho deceased leaves a wife, but they bad been living apart for several years. The attention of our readers ia called to tho law card of Messrs, Hawkins & Caraway, which will bo found in anoth er column. They will practice in all tho courts of Benton County, and special attention Riven to administration of es tates. We bespeak for them a liberal sharo of your patronage. Hon. James N. Nolan died at his home at Waverly Saturday morning. For a number of years he had been a leading citizen and a progressive business mau cf Waverly. He held the office of comp troller during Governor Hawkin's ad ministration, and was actively identified with tho Republican party. lie bad a number of friends here who wero pained to learn of his death. The end of August has not found tho farmers of Tennessee in such condition for rejoicing in perhaps twenty years, says the Nashville Sun. With an abun dance of good wheat playing around tho dollar mark, the corn crop as promising as could well bo wished and all other crops lending their full share of encour agement, the outlook for our agricultu ral friends is bright indeed. The dilapidated building a short dis tanoo northeast of town, which has boon used as a house of ill-fame, was destroy ed by fire at an early hour last Friday morning. For sonio time tho plaeo was a rendezvous for soiled doves from all points of the compass, but no effort was made to interfere with these seducers to lewdness, aud they held high carnival thero for many months. There is no clue to the origin of the fire, but tho mora! people cf Camden regard it as a provi dential removal of one of tho most re volting oye-sores in the community. Tennessee has an excellent school for tho blind, located at Nashville, It is a State institution as well an a part of the public school system, and oilers to every blind child in Tennessee between the ages of 7 aud 17 years au opportunity to procure an education as good in every respect aud as complete as that received by their more fortunate brothers and sisters.
