r. A RIMaa ABL3a FIHm SPRING.-The
Jonesboro (Tenn.) Herald gives the
following account of a remarkable fish a
.apring. in Jghnaon county:
It issituated on the chief bank of
the Wataugh, only about twenty feet I
from thebrink. The main current from
the spring is large enough to turn a
* mill, and enters the river only about t
thirty feet below its-source. Between I
the spring and the river is a large rock I
which is perforated with-numerous ap
ertures, from whih the waters of the
spring gash constantly into the river.
The fish, as winter approaches, enter I
these holbs, and make their way into a
subterranean basin which exists under
neath the rock and there remain until
spring, when the apertures through
which they.epter having been stopped
they are forced to enter the spring on
the other side, where they are easily
caught. Over 3500 have been taken
in a single season.
The case of the State vs. J. L. Lew
is, Judge of 11th District, in relation
to his eligibility to the office of District
Judge. was tried this week at Homer
before Judge Scott. The decision we
learn was against the eligibility of
Judge Lewis: 1st, Because he had not
been a practising lawyer in this State
for two years preceding his appoint
ment; and 2d,- he was ineligible
under the 14th amendment.-.Minden
The Fort Wayne Gazette relates
that the minister of a prominent church
in that city, after preaching for the
space of fifty-five minutes, on Sunday,
eat down, and after consulting his.
watch, said: "I find that I have been
preaching for fifty-five minutes. I
have repeatedly tried to curtail my ser
mons to thirty-five minutes, and I ask
every member of my congregation if
they dare to pray for my ultimate suc
cess to do so.
HUSK MlATs.-A correspondent says:
"To make an excellent door mat"
take an inch plank of the-size desired
and bore three-quarter-inch holes
through it with their centres two inches
apart, into these draw dampened corn
sbhucks, and trim off about two inches
long on each bides. This mat is good
either side up. Anybody can easily
make one, and every one can keep his
boots clean, much to the gratificatian
of good housekeepers."
