wourds. Jesse Nelson, au employee of
the Conger Bros., at the! planing mill,
and who was sitting near by, waiting for
h:s wife to brirg his dinner, was so hor
r.b.y mutilated by the Tailing timbers,
his sull bioken and his brain exuding,
that he died o. the fo'lowi lg day. A
boy was severely scu'iled, hut is now ia a
fai.- way of recoveiy. It bciu;; th din
ner hour, an.'! there bi 'ng but few per
sons near the mill, not a single wliiiu
persoa was harmed, though several made
very narrow escape. Mr. Join l'rewett
was sittiug in the back doo:, and the
mill falling ia the opposite di-ection was
all that saved him. An adjoiai.ig house
ia w hich Mr. James kiigor reyiues, was
bespattered w ith water and loud, a ;o:
tion of the ImiUoiu wtatherboardiag car
ried away; and a par. of re ti.-e-box
was huried with iaealeuiaole ve-oci.y
through one of tne rooms, smasai lg and
entering a window and goiug oat at an
oppslte door; Mrs. Conger was near to
the window at the time, but fortunately
escaped without any iajury. The large,
20-foot boiler at first rose tw caiy or thirty
feet in the air, then fell to Jie earth, and
rebouudiag, sailed away, and slopped iu
the backyard o. Mr. GoodeU's residence,
some twenty yards distant from the
starting point. A 50-pouud fragaieat of
the boiler started toward the residence of
Mrs. Hughes, a quarter of a mile off, aud
succumbed to the attraction of gravita
tion but a short distance from that house.
The shock of the explosion was tremen
dous and houses nearly half a mile off
shivered as if shaken by au earthquake.
No one can state with certainty the
cause of the disaster. The boiler and
engine were bought, new, of Messrs.
I. it E. Grecnwald, Cincinnati, and had
been In use only about five months. It
may be that the explosioa resulted from
I the incompetency of the engineer. It is
j rather hazardous tp trust a negro with
: steam iower. Not oue negro in a hun
dred is well instructed and fairly under
stands the business. Life tuid property
are saved by employing w'.:;e raca.
We have i:ot heard any estimate of the
loss by the der.tructlon of this tine mill;
but suppose i: must lit- six or spyen thou
saad dollar-, at least.

As my corner bat been empty for a few
weeVs, I will drop you a few "jottings by
the way." This busine?s of item hunt
ing Is like every oilier business, it ia
sonieu.nes dull, and during the pact few
weeks it has been unusually dull. I not
long since attended a mass Grange meet
i.igat Gilchi-Ut's church, in McNalry
county, the object of which was to take
steps looking to the consolidation of Au
amsville, Gilchrist and Ciucinnatu.s
G ranges. The meeting was addressed by
Messr. J. G. Combs, Anderson, L.San-
ders, T. F. Sanders, C. A. Combs and oth
ers. Their s oeechea indicated that there
Is life in the bones of the dust-brown
sous of toil, aud that they are fast learn
ing to think and act Independently. The
farmers need light, and I am 'iroud to
know they ara bending their effort iu
the right direction to receive It li'i abun
daiit and wholesome quantities. I hope
they will bask In a perfect flood-tide be
fore they grow much older. Their Intel
lectual powers have slumbered long
enough. Let them rally their sturdy
host under the watch-word of onward
and upward, and they- will toon, have
cause to rejoice In the elorv of their a-
hieveuieuts. I intended to publish a sy
nopsis of the speeches delivered on the
occasion referred to, but And that I can-
iic do so in my limited space, without
doing thciu injustice.
Hon. A. W. Storall has returned from
the Senatorial Coavenlion, held at Deca-
u.-ville ou the IGtli last. He reports
that after thirty-three ballots hjid been
taken, the Convention adjourned, with
out making a nomination. The 0th of
October a Convention will be held at the
same place for the same purpose. The
counties composing the Senatorial Dis
trict are 'requested to instruct, through
Conventions, on the 1st Monday in Octo
ber. It is hoped that the matter will be
duly considered and a la: ge attendance
ntthecou. t house on that day. At this
pa. tic ular crisis we need men of large in-
foimaUoaand experience in the legisla
ture. G ave nuesUons, involving the
honor of the "oid Volunteer Slate," will
be decided at the next meeting of the leg
islature. The financial nuestion. in
which every man and every individual
of the Slate is iuvoived, will then be dis
poseu of, and a settled fiscal jwlicy for
thefutu.e will a adopted. We should
send men of "big' laKis a. id broad ideas.'
If this be done th State, and all its aial-
tifoiui Interests arc aafe. But first, and
highest of a'l, let us have harmony In all
The school at Montezuma opened its
fall session with an attendance of sixty
puoils. I learn th't the number has in
creased :o eighty, with a prospect of lar
ger attendance. The Purdy school was
organized two weeks ago with a liberal
patronage. -" ' '
The road from Bethel Springs to Ad-
msvillc is in a desperately bad condition
ii many . places almost Impassable.
There is no ueiessity for such a road.
Overseers should be compiled to carry
out the law ia the matter.- Last Friday
and Saturday this rond was worked from
one mile west oi Adamsvil'c to the Har
din county I ne, a dsince of i wo miles.
The road was placed in excellent condi
tion, for which iir. A. J. Mitchell is just
ly due our liiniikx. The county needl a
few more such uic.i to act as road over
seers. The prospect of a good Fair, and a
large attendance at Purdy tnis fall, is
very promising. The track has been
completed, aud is considered one of the
best in the State. All necessary work
will be tlnished within a short time. The
whole aff.d has been, from first to last,
under the immediate supervision of Col.
Fiirvianee, wno lias fully demonstrated

Livery Stable at Pudy in a few days.
They are the men Ifor such an undertak
