local notes for
The following protest, in printed
form is being circulated all over the
county, by parties who are opposed to
the passage of the bill; and we are in
formed that the several protests have
over one thousand signatures. It
reads as follows:
To the Jlonorable legislature, as
sembled at Nashville, Tenn., aud par
ticularly our Representatives, Hons
F. A. INummer, V. J. Strayhorn, X.
It. Wilkes aud V. J. Whitthorne:
We, the undersigned citizens and vo
ters and tax payers of the county of
Maurv, do protest against the passage
ol a bill, which has lately been gotten
up by some lawyers in the town of Co
lumbia, to establish a special court at
Columbia. Tenn., for Maury county
alone, taking jurisdiction from the reg
ular Chancellor and the regular Circuit
Judge, and putting the jurisdiction in
one man for all the courts, and legisla
ting out of the district some of the offi
cers eleeteil by the people for a to "in of
eight years to the said offices. Under
the present management of the a Hairs
in our said county in tho past three
years, tho warrants of the county have
advanced from it cents on the dollar to
aisiut par, and the jurors attending the
present court are paid for their war
rants in cash, the first time this has
Ikmmi the case in Maury for years.
From a certificate of the "clerk of the
circuit court we see there are fewer
cases on the cri ninal docket left over
for the next ter:n, than has been in the
pitst several ve:rs. And that the pres
e.it flleers holding and attending upon
the said courts are eilieient and atten

JJ Cholera Cars!
v Jw f I
Thousands of dollars worth of
chickens are destroyed by Cholora
every year. It is more fatal to them
than all other diseases combined.
But the discovery of a liquid remedy
that positively destroys the Microbes
has been discovered. Half of the
young chickens are destroyed by the
Microbes before they are fryers. A
50-cents bottle is enough for 100
chickens. It is guaranteed. If, after
using two thirds of a bottle, you are
not satisfied with it as a cure for
Cholera, return it to the druggist
from whom you purchased it, and
he will refund your money.
