Any section of any country that pre

southern portion of Oconco county
should bo developed to tho full extent,
that thoso residing therein might cnjr?y

tho country surrounding thom aro filled
with the best of pooplo, progroseivo and
prosperous. They have dovolopcd tboir
land and built nice and commodious
residences thoroou. Much attention has
boen and is hoing gi von to tho upbuild
ing of schools and churches. Many ro
fl ned and prosperous pooplo resido there
ami their prosperity domands moro
transportation advantages. Their lands
iiavo advanced in pi ?co wonderfully for
the last few years and should yot increase
in value. Everything looks bright for
the future, but ono thing is lacking
rapid transit. For yoars wo havo hopod
for a railroad, but wo have looked in vain.
It has not como. Hut this noodod faoility
can be obtained. Tho pooplo residing
there oan romedy tho defcot. Why not
mako tho effort? Build a trolly lino. It
can bo constructed by our own pooplo
and owned by them. We fool sure th?B

tion the increase in valuoof the lands in
tho communities reaohod by it will moro
than pay for tho road. Why not mako
tho otfort? it would tako scarcely no
grading. Not a stream to cross. Money
is plentiful in many parts of this country
and is seeking investment. If our own
people will subscribe liberally and orean
izo a company tho balance of tho money
wanting can be gotten on bouda of the
road, ls it not worth tho whilo to make
tho effort for such needed advantage?

Columbia, April 4.-Commissioner W.
O. Tatum and L. W. lloykin. dispensary
director, have returned from Cinoilinati,
where they went as a committee to look
into the cost of a bottling plant and a
Sterilizing outfit. Thecoinmitt.ee visited
several of the most important houses in
that city and was well pleased with the
result of the visit, obtaining a Hoar idea
;is to the way in which tho plant should
he installed, lt is estimated that the
plant will cost about $2,000, Ol' not over
p8,000 and that it will he a complete out
it for tho sterilizing of bottles and tho
putting up of whiskies which will be
put on tho market by the dispensaries.
lt ?8 not known yet wind her lt will he
leOOSSary to erect a building for tile
plant, but Mr. Tatum does not think KO,
ind is of the opinion that the nullit can
be placed in the prosont building. This,
however, will he left to tho board, which
will meet in a few days to bear the re

ill tireen ville last week six negroes
confined in the county jail made a des
perate offoi't to escape. Innes Wi od,
charged with wife murder, is at large,
hut .lim Jones, tho ol her prisoner, who
succeeded in passing the jailer, was cap
lured a few minutes later. The other
foin- did not pass the bulky form of
.lailer Noe, who is six feet seven inches
?tl height and weighs over 200 pounds.
Kor several minutes ho fought tho des
perate criminals, who vainly endeavored
to BOC uro his pistol. Not until ho had
dragged them '.;> tho door of tho corridor
did the jailer succeed in wrenching his
arm free. With a blow bo felled ono of
his assailants, and then drawing his pis
tol, he sent the othors hack to their cells
like frightened rabbits. The escape of
Wood is tho third that has taken place
in the history of tho jail. The negroes
discovered a defective lock on one of tho
colls. They all congregated within, and
when the corridor was oponod to place
coal In tho furnace, they made ft dash for
liberty. Noe's feat is considered remark
able and there is scarcely .Another man
in the country who would have escaped
with his lifo.
