Conrt opened this morning at the usual
hoar. Judge Gilmer came over on Satur
day, and most of the lawyers were her6
on good time. There seems to be an un
usually fiill attendance of theml could
not obtam a full list, but I observe Meg'
sra. Axley and Posey from Cher 3kee
Elias and Geo.11. Jones from Macon,
Fry from Swain, the Fergusons, P. M
Henry, ; Moody, Fisher and .tate from
Haywood, Johnston from Buncombe, and
Morse and Hampton of the: Jackson bar1.
No doubt L have omitted some names,
for I -have never found them all at one
time in the Court House. '
The criminal docket is a dark one and
is fuller of more varieV offences than is
u.?ual with a people &z gp.ae.aly observ
ant of law; Affraya, assaults andjatter
iei, carrying concealed weapons figure
somewhat too prominently. There are
few cases however which betray innate
moral depravity; and the cases of larceny
are creditably very few. . - ;
There is one case of horse stealinc, a
man named Beard who committed the
offense in Canada township, was caught
in Transylvania, and lay there . until
brought over by officer Aiken to-day.
The gravest case is that of Lambert
charged with the murder of Wilson. He
has been confined in Buncombe jail, and
reached here this morning in charge of
bheriif Kieb. , It is thought the case will
be removed to Macon for good reasons.
Mr. Kope Elias is one of the counsel for
the defense, I do not know, the others.

Court I have found nothing of stirring
interest. I am sorry to learn of much
sickness in . parts of the county and a
considerable- degree of fatality, pneu
monia and typhoid fevers being the pre-'
vailing diseases. ' The family of Mr. Na
than Coward has been severely afflicted.
He has recently lost his most excellent
wife and a son, has another sen now verv
sick, and his daughter the wife of Mr. L.
J. Smith, is also very seriously ill. Mr
Woods Zachary and wifeare. Jjoth very
ill, the former perhap improving, the
latter critically sick. All those are well
known to many of our readers, being ot
prominent families in the county of
Jackson. , v .
The county feels very heavilv the ef
fect of. last year's drought. There is
much privation yet to be under gone by
man and- beast before the coming crops
will restore plenty. The growing wheat
crop offers little comfort. It will be Iqsa
than half an average- JThe plough is at
work with preparations for an early
planting of corn. There is prospect of a
large increase in the-acreage of tobacco,
especially in the northern portion ojf the
county, and it is believed double the crop
of last year will be planted. .- "
The mica interest is very active though
somewhat changed m locality . "lne
workings have come closer;, to Webster.-
Mr, Cartej: Jkysoa, s. jspeiagJa-Buno I
about a mile and a half from the Court
House which at present is very produc
tive, and gives fine promise. : Air. A. W ."
uryson 01 iankan, has inst concluded
the purchase of a mine two and a half
miles distant which is regarded as won
derfully valuable. Perhaps some account
of it will appear in the Citisek from an
othei -source. . There is another - mine
some miles from here in which Solicitor
Ferguson has an interest which is high
ly rated; and I hear accounts of the mine
oq" Vannah Creek on the'road to Frank
lin Vhich seem almost fabulous. This is
worked by Mr.. A. H. IsbelL late of
Asheville. Of the other, mineral inter
ests of the county, little is now said.
Another interest -was-called to my. at
tention to-day which may go to the en
couragement of those who have gone or
may go into carp culture. Mr. L. C.
Hall-Biade a tish pond on" bis pretty
farm just across the river from here, per
haps vtwo "years ago, -and stocked it a
year ' ago with fish four or ftve inches
long. Those are now fifteen inches or
more long, and the abundant vouns try
are larger than the stock originally put
It ib pleasant to note the changes made
in mail arrangements since I was last
here, a year ago. Then the mail . from
Asheville lagged on the joad two days.
Now leaving that place at half past nine
in the morning it is here and delivered
at a little past 2 p. m. . Passengers for
Webster may leave the train at Sylva
from which, place they are r conveyed in
good conveyances aha capital teams, Tsy
Mr. A. M. Parker; or they go On to Web-j
tVl VtV VVj UVIU VliV . UiUU til JS. JVVll o
Creek, at which point Mr. W. A. Enloo
and Young and Bynum all have good
conveyances. -The distance is almost
precisely the same, 4 miles, i " - - T -
There is one more revolution to bring
about. -: The mail reaching here; at 2
o'clock, instead of being pushed on the
same night to Franklin, 20 miles, and
gaining that much on its way West, stops
here until next morning. V; It should be
in Franklin at 8 o'clock in the :evening
bfthedayit leaves Asheville.' It. does
not in fact reach there until 13 or 1 of
the next day. Our new Congressman
could not do more essential service to
his Western- constituents: than by ex
pediting matters. , Our Western friends
are impatient to see the Daily Citizen
while it is still damp from the press.
Yesterday, in rambling about Sylva, I
paid a visit to the grave of a man once
well known in the annals of Haywood
and Jackson, a citizen of the last when
it was part of the territory of Hay wood.
Jos. - Keener was a man of mark in his
day, a man of sound . judgment, large
practical common sense, a fine Bpeaker,
a man of keen wit and terrible powers
of sarcasm, genial, yet feared, popular,
influential and successful He was a
member of the House in 1844-5, and of
the Senate ia 1863, and may have been
in the Legislature at other times. Few
men of the county have leit so- deep an
impression upon the" memories of the
people or the history of the county. His
family may boast -of a kind of,antiquity
in Jackson It settled on Scotts Creek
when the Indian titles were scarcely
extinguished, and "where the savages
must have been close and troublesome
neighbors. I notice among the few leg
ible tablets, the names of his maternal
parentage, the Cunninghams tho most
frequent. v ; - v .. -:
Mr. Keener died at the age of C5. One
eon, Mr. J. P. Keener, lives at the old
homestead on Scott's creek, "a place dear
to the memories of the politician of ante
bellum days. :-' -t ,1 , . V, ,
I saw at Sylva this niorniag our old
friend, Maj. J. 11. Bryson, - who hale
and vigorous at the age of 80, had walked
down irora his home iu Cashiers Valley
to make his semi-annual visit, always 011
foot, to Lis Km on 'cult's Creek, a dis

THE KITCHEN (!A
Messrs. Eddors : A f :'.v days ago I was
taken, by a friend, to visit the "Kitchen
Garden School," and was- much; pleased
and interested to f.uJ what progress the
good work is making. I have found but
few people in pur. town who 'seem to
fully understand - th e working of this
wonderful system for the instruction of
lit tie girls in all those details ,which go
to make upa h: py home.: .''.:;'.r
There is' noinir;: like "seeing for
believing" and I wish that the indiffer
ent and the skeptical would do as I did
visit the school and see for themselves
the bright, happy faces, the eager inter
est, the ambition to excel first in per
sonal neatness, next in -exactness and
completeness of w oik. , r f .
The children are taught to sweep and
dust a room, make the bed, set the table,
wait at table, clear it away, wash and put
away" the things, to sew,' catting and
making garments, -c, :.&c, ' and each
thing .according -J,o. -tirtrjjiost .cotpplete

THE WONDERFUL MICA MINK IN
" ' ' ' ; "JACKSO.
..WaasTER, N. C, April 20th, 1885.
To the Editors 0 tlie Asheville Citizen : ' .
I hav2 taken the liberty of writing you
a few lines in reference to the mica mine
d?MveiCTi tnjeonrMtT-fT: TotnXct'lH
property, situated within- two
Vebster, Jackson county; Nj C. " - 1
This great mica mine has been leased
by myself and Mr. E. M. Coward. There
has been a mistaken rumor in. circula
tion that Mr. Bowers held an interest in
it. He has not nor never had any inter
est whatever in it. The amount of fine
clear mica" that can be .taken out per
week by four hands is wonderful con
sidering the short time we have been at
work. , r--r C:- .-; i r-
There is being taken 'out about one
hundred and fifty dollars worth per
week which is sold by us every Saturday.
In.illustration of 'all my life I have
named it the "World's Wonderful Mine."
This name is great, but no more so than
