,.' Benton McMillin.
Aroused to action under the Hon. T.
iR. Treston's criticism, of his stand re
garding the State refunding debt and
other matters, ex-Gov. Benton ,McMil
lin spoke Tuesday night at 8:30 at the
opera house to a rousing crowd of
voters.
The speaker was introduced in an ap
propriate address by J. L. Fry. Upon
the stage were- seated many of the
staunch supporters of Mr. Millin, anx
ious to hear his response to Preston 'i
accusations.
After the preliminary remarks, the
speaker repnea airectiy w me cuarges
made against him, stating that his ac
tion in defeating the funding act of
1899 had saved the State a million of
dollars, and not lost between two and
three millions, as Preston insisted
The bill," said Air. JUcJUuiin, was a
violation of every principle of the plat
form on which the legislature and
were elected. The platform demanded
the payment of our debt; the bill per
petuated it, converting a 14-year debt
into a 40-year debt." As in his prevl
ous speeches, Gov. McMillin spent a
great part of his time in giving and ex
plaining the provisions of the bill
in concluding ms remarts, lie again
referred to Mr. Craig's action in the
matter as unjustifiable. Mr. McMillin's
remarks were forceful and vigorous
and drew frequent applause from the
crowd.

A Novel Outfit.
Thomas Southworth, whose gallery
here was destroyed by fire some weeks
ago, has perfected a new photographic
equipment, in other words, a portable
studio. Mr. Southworth has for some
time been experimenting with artificial
lighting, and since the burning he has
given this branch of the work more at
tention, developing recently, in St.
Louis, a bellows flashlight, which is
operated together with an Eastman
complete outfit for home photography.
The bellows is made of black and white
cloth, provided with a tube which is in
scitcu fiOiii the rear. The tube carries
the powder, and when the sitter is ready
the operator ignites the powder with a
connecting rubber at the same time he
uses the bulb for exposure. When ex
posure is made, he takes the bellows.
which is attached to a small stand, to
the window and allows the smoke to
escape.
He has also another lighting ap
paratus, simple and easy to handle,
which does not confine the powder.
This is used when not more than one
exposure is wanted, and distributes very
little smoke in the room. The entire
outfit is complete and simple, easy to
operate, takes a minimum amount of
time for an exposure, and is capable of
the highest results. The bellows is
Mr. Southworth 's own invention, and
is likely to advance the field of pho

Great Pictures.
The Auto Bandits of Paris was a sen

Opera House last Wednesday night.
This is a reproduction of the operations
of a band of the boldest outlaws that
ever infested the city of Paris. The pic
ture is a startling revelation, including
many of the most daring holdups and
attacks of this band, showing the ban
dits' car and its routes, localities, etc.

Enterprising Centreville.
Through the efforts of the Centreville
Commercial Club a number of Oregon
cattle men have been located in Hick
man County and are about to establish
cattle ranches in the hill land near
Cable, which is especially well adapted
to grazing.
It is the purpose of these men to erect
a cheese factory and establish a steady
market for milk, thus insuring a ready
income for farmers desiring to engage
n cattle-raising on a large scale.
Every commercial club in the State
should emulate the examplo of the
Centreville club. There is scarcely a
county in Tennessee which does not
ave extensive acres of grazing laud,
and every acre of this should be pastured
nd turned to profit.
The movement of the Middle West
farmers to the Northwest and Canada
can be halted in a measure if they are
but advised fully about the superior
chances which await them here. Cheese.
factories, creameries and canning fac
tories should be established far and wide
in Tennessee. By paying special at
tention to the branches of farming which
yield ready money every year the farm
can be made more attractive to boys
and girls and thousands of young per
sons can be held on the land who are
considering flight to the big centers of
population and industry. Nashville
