SNAKE OIL ; OUR LOCAL The morning service at the First Baptist church last Sunday was de voted to Mother's Day, and the sim plicity and devoutness of the service made it particularly appropriate. The address by Mr. J. E. Biddle was one of the very best we have ever enjoy ed from the lips of our gifted lawyer friend. We have been advised by one in authority to handle this column "with out gloves," but while we know not even the sensation of the gloved hand gentry, (having always felt grateful for merely a sock with a whole heel) the editor of the Sun is minus his "fighting breeches" and exercises his censorship with a free hand per haps however, to the eternal welfare of our "bean." So when you see evi dence of a "gloved hand" in our ob servations, just bear in mind that edi-1 tor Lyon is the man that's alrady got troubles enough of his own, along with the fellows who tried to "run the shoat" over some folks, from the High School premises, one night dur ing the past week. The Tennessee Great Council of In dependent Order of Red Men will meet in Nashville next Tuesday. Mes srs. J. N. Stevens, T. S. Hull and B. M. Dukes will attend from Seminole Tribe, of this place. , Why not extend the sidewalk on the west side of North Irish street to the railroad crossing before laying walks on some of the less important and side streets of the city, where a pedestrian has not been seen in twen ty years? True some folks with a vest pocket full of influence own property on North Irish street they do not personally occupy, but many are forced to walk on the "speedway," to the imminent danger of life and limb. , A mile-a-minute is the record now held on the North Irish speedway, and we are all breathlessly waiting to see who can beat it. Don't all try at once the track tis too narrow and devious, and our citizens, young and old, still persist in placing their feet where they have no (rights (?) what ever, notwithstanding they built and paid for the "speedway." How long will our people submit to the Southern Railway stock pen nuisance. Was there no one in that neighborhood who had the nerve to GEORGIA SMART SET MINSTRELS ARE HERE The Georgia Smart Set Minstrel aggregation, which have played Greeneville on more than one occas ion, is here to give our people another unique entertainment this evening. They carry their own band and or chestra and on their previous visits to this city gave one of the best shows of this character ever presented here. The, "old time" darky is seldom seen any more and it is interesting to have their lives portrayed b yartists cap able of doing so. The minstrel will show in their own large waterproof tent this evening at 8:30 o'clock on the Vann lot, near the Southern pas senger staion. The First National Bank Only National Bank in the County.

OBSERVER : open the gates- to that bawling heard ' of suckling calves this week no one merciful enough to club the "whole coop" to place them out of their mis ery? We had a more prolonged dose of the heart-rending, nerve-straining egregious nuisance this week than usual days and nights of bawling, hungry, tortured valves. A thousand hog pens would be a subline blessing ' to our town, compared with this aw ful state of things. 1 "Billy Barlow" will rejoice over the action of our court house builders in substituting wood for iron newel posts at both flights of steps. It af fords an excellent opportunity for the "bone heads" to whittle while loafing about the house of justice. The average East Tennessean would whittle on his grand-mother's coffin if there was on public building with soft wood in exposed places, and doubtless the wood posts were used as a token of respect for the biers of our grannies. Joe Turney, once State High Sheriff, carried a grip full of soft cedar whittling timber, on which he executed all the deft strokes known as bone heads, while he await ed the arrival of late trains with a gang en route to the State prison from the various counties. We al ways admired the pussy state sheriff for his fore-thought and respect for public property. When we were a boy our visits with rural kinspople and friend? were always marked by the old gob bler strutting, around the barn yard, with his feathers all on end, his tail spread out and wings drumming the ground. He was a vicious looking, ter rible sight to behold yet there was no more harm in him than there is a Greeneville policeman. But we didn't know it. And now we become befud dled and lose our equilibrium on be holding a shapely pair of silk hose coming down the street beneath a frizzled, befrazzled, painted and pow ered head both made up and puffed up to "corn-fed" perfection, and we call the boys for dress parade inspec tion, when some wise guy, on behold ing the shoulder blades and breast bones and blue leaders in the stringy neck, announces "there's nothing in itin either the hose or the bean." But we didn't know it. Mothers, mothers, mothers have you no sense of decency, or have you been asleep on the job until you have lost your authority? CARD OF THANKS. I desire to most sincerely thank, the good substantial county folks of Greene County an dthe people of Greene for their patronage, and I am leaving here with all business transactions carried out completely and honestly. Sincerely yours, THE VANGILDER STUDIO. "Over Milligan'e Store." TW LfTTll fluAHTHS IH2 ILLS I1VER. On at Bedtime and feel like sew persoa nest if.
