The farmers are all intelligent and show more prosperity than the average Monroe county farmer. There are scarcely any public improvements in Brown, only three iron bridges and about 20 miles of pike road and the tax rate is $2.70. About halt of the farmers never go to the county seat at Nashville but twice each year to pay their tax. The people are far more sociable and generous than you can find any place else. About 5 years ago a company leased some land near a little post office, called U-no, on James Cunmming's farm, and struck a strong vein of good mineral water. It is the same water found at Martinsville, Nashville, West Baden and other places in this state. If you drink that water, you needn't worry, about your digestion. You can eat any thing you want, and sleep like a baby. Many people go and drink this water from all parts of the state- There is some talk about forming a company and piping this well to Bloomington, 18 miles. If such a project was accomplished it would greatly benefit Bloomington. It could be done without much money, the pipe need not be laid very deep in the ground as the water will not freeze and burst the pipes like common water. WEDDIN' BELLS A RINGN'.
