deep regret that Mine Anderson has been

I lor nervous system has been almost
wrecked, a fact Unit has boon mado pain

constant strain of tho stago for several
years with only Intermittent and short

PHKLAN'S OUOOL HISTOBY.
The Book Orit.oaily Hevlewed and Pro-
From the Nutlnua) fteVlcw, Murcli 1.1.
Wo have received from the publishers,
E. II. Hutlor & Co.. of Philadelphia, Con
gressman James Phulan's "School History
of Tonuessoo," which we have examined
with care and interest.
It is a neatly printed, well bound vol-
nmo of 233 pages, between H li of about
5x7 inches in si.e, mid tho reading matter
is divided into thirty-two chapters of con
venient lengths. There In a brief rufereuce
to or synopsis of the content, but no index
whatever, which is a serious fault In a toxt
book. Thoro nrc torty-oiglit illustrations,
being very good likuiicsjus of prominent
men of TennesHflO.
Tho history begins with tho first settle
ment on Tonne seo s .il and ends with thu
mention of K. L. Taylor's oleeliou for a
second term as Uovnruor in 1HS4
We began tho examination of tho book
1rcdiHMi.'Hjd to commend and iudorse it;
ut we wore sadly disappointed In it ns
cither a text book for schools or general
Mr. l'lielim's larger history of Tenmsteo
Is nn admirable work mid exceedingly In
teresting and entertaining.
This "School History" is very good In
its lirst part, covering iho period'from 17K1I
to lNoO. From tho latter ditto to thu end
it is nn luiiHtrfoct biography of prominent
Tennesseaus, lntcrsiiorsod with mention of
political conlcsls and elections.
We regret to bo thus critical in rovlow
Ing tho book, but the prominence, given to
it by tho Introduction of a bill into tho
legislature to foren its adoption ns a text
book in the public schools, makes a closa
insis'ftioii ami honest expression of its de
fects a duty.
"There is n map of Tennessee showing the
boundaries of each county, the location of
principal cities und towns uud the lines of
railroads. It is a well printed mid well
draw n map, but fails to show all tho lines
of railway, which all will udinit to be a No
tion defect, since the tritnsMrtation facili
ties of a State is one of its most important
features. It does not give thu least indica
tion of Hie linn of railway which is being
built from Memphis lo Nnshvillo and
w hich is now about completed lo the Ten
nessee Itiver, tuns leaving several West
Tennessee counties without apparent
railroad transportation, ll also fails lo lo
cate tho line of rou.l now being rapidly
built between Nashville nml Kuoxville.
For a map drawn in Isvj these are inex
There Is not even a synopsis of tho Con
stitution of the Mule lo bo found in thu
whole Issik, much less n reference lo H o
Constitution of the L'nited Slates.
It were Is'ttcr. in our opinion, for tho
children of (he -Stale to know something of

there are 000 children in the various asy

A Transaction In the Commodity That la
Causing Boms (Shuffling.
Getting away with a car load of acrnp
iron is something that does not occur
every day, and it ain't every man that
would care lo do such a thing, anyhow.
Tho transaction is closely akin to gutting
aw-av with a rod-hot stove or a sack 01
A few days since a man, claiming to rep
resent a St. Louis concern, came here and
purchased from an oilmill enough scrap
iron to fill two freight cars. Tlio seller
was Induced to load one of the cars. Soon
after this Hie buyer apjicared before, Mr.
Kress, agent of tho Newport Xows A Mis
sissippi niley Koad, nnd requested n
lull of luding lor the enr, und lis
immediate haul to St. IxHiis. Ho
whs told to get tho yardmaster's O. K.,
tlid so, and thu papers wero ull put in
ahujH.', and the cur went rolling out over
the road. About this time Ihe oilmill
men suddenly remembered they bud re
ceived no money for their iron, and went
rushing down upon the railroad agent
uhotit it, threatening to hold his company
for the amount. Mr. Kress had the yurd'
mustcr's O. K., nud felt very comfortable,
thank you, but in order to investigate, tel
egraphed ahead und had the car stopped
at Puducuh. It remained on a side track
thero for two days. Nobody seemed to be
moving in the promises, ami Mr. Kress,
remembering that his bill of lading was
out, ordered the tur to bo moved on to its
original destination, w here the light might
Ihi continued until the judgment day, so
lur as ho whs concerned. In tho mean
time the oilmill men, to save their inter
ests, drew on their hill of lading for tho
amount, n local bunk paid it, and there it
stands. Tho balance of the iron has not
yet been loaded.
