subject matter of which is ful

many times over to all who
keep poultry, whether profes

thor leaves nothing untouched
as. to. the care,, management
marketing or diseases of nil
domestic fowls, and clearly sets
forth tbe special markings and
good and bad qualities of the
different breeds. The author
has no hobv to ride or favor

pense of all others, but- gives
practical experience in plain
terms that all will understand.
Such a book in the . hands ot
the larmers or ' our county

On to McArthur.
Weduesday morning last,
Messrs. W. Marshall Anderson,
Sol. Reigle, W. E. Bolin, Allred
Williams kni Wm. B. Marfield
of ibis city darted on a tour of
observation along the proposed
route ot the Circleville McAr
thur & Galllpolis railroad.
They arrived at the residence
of Sol. Reigle, jr., near Adelphi
for breakfast, and from there
proceeded ou to BIoomingville
for dinner. Tbe country to
this point is to veil known
that a -description of it would
be superfluous. Several resi
dents of Blooming ville accom
panied the party down Queer
creek Valley about 6 miles to
Potter's Ridge; all down the
Valley there is more or less
coal, and the ridge is full ol
iron, coal, potter's clay and fire
clay, and the finest of building
stone. There are some dozen
potteries on the ridge. Llere
there will have to be a cut or a
tunnel of about. 600 feet, it is
tho only point on Hie whole
route where any heavy work
has to be done, every foot of
the route seems to have been
created for the special accom
modation of railroad builders.
On the other side of the ridge
is Raccoon Oreek Valley
through which they passed to
Karnes' Mill; to see this Valley
is well worth a day's ride, it in
magniGceutly beautiful and
picturesque; it is full of coal
and iron as are all the hills for
Kirnes' Mill is about 33
mites from Circleville and here
the party met the grading from
(Jallipolia. Right at this point
thequestim hinges will they
go on to Logan or come hert-f
There is not much time to de
cide thin question in, and what
is to bd dune by 'our citizens
must be done' quickly; it' is
hoped aud expected that this
will be tbe point they will
strike for Irom Karnes' Mill,
but there is "many a slip," and
the Logan people are thor
oughly aroused to the. impor
tance to their town ol that
road so delays are dangerous.
Between Karnes' and McAr
thur are the Dunkle mines
which have a vein of iron ore
6 leet 6 inches thick. These
mines yield ore of such rich
ness that it takes 200 in lest,
ore to make a ton of inm than
of any in tbe surrounding
country. Its value is so great
that it pays to work it. and
haul the ore in wagons to Vin
ton Furnace some miles away
Specimens ol ore brought from
the Benson Dunkle and John
Dunkle farm are said to be
much more valuable even tbn
the ore mined on the widow
Dunkle place. Tbe citizens all
through this country are eager
for the road. They will give
land or work or anything they
have to get it built; they have
sense enough to know that it
will be a lair exchange and
will bring them money for
what they have to .dispose ol.
McArthur was the slopping
place- for the : night; in the
morning a large party of influ
ential citizens returned with
them to the ridge and took
great oains to show them meny
