In the meantime the balloon was dis

OUU IIOUE INTERESTS.
Tiirwnter nntl Ambre gash
aud llliiid Factory.
Messrs. Tnrwatei& Ambrose built
their Sash and Blind Factory amd went
into opeiatinn (a 1868. The firm is
composed of Mr. II. 0, Tarwtter, a na
tive of Knox county well known as
our former tax collector, and -formerly
one of the proprietors of the Cufcoxi
ct.K. and Mr J. T Ambrose.: fornierly
of Carter county. Thjgy are oth young
men, and this is liif ';fi.-scjpiie'rice
in manufacturing; but theyThawc csllab
lished a reputation w hich is giving them
a market for their products throughout
Eist Tennessee, South-Western Vir
giu'a, Southern Kentucky and the State
The lumber usej up by them will
amount to five hundred thousand feet
per atiuuiu. nearly all of w hich is pro
cured iu Kist Tennessee. They have
occasionlly purchased lumber of such a
character s could tot be purchased
here, fro a other localities. Their busi
ness for the year 1 873 has amounted to
about $J."),OOJ Ot this their nrinufnc
lured articles have been sold in Knox
county, to the amount of $11,000, the
reminder having found a nurket else
where. In the same time thev paid out
for labor shout $10,500. They hive
employed ujiou an average about 20
hands, most of w houi are regular jour
Until witliirt a lew months past. Utey
lnvc not oJy run t':eir shop, but in
connection therewith have done a large
buil Jing and contracting busmen , buil
ding ns nriny home-t perhaps ai nny
linn in the city. The increasing de
mand for such u nicies as they manu
facture has led them to abandon this
p irt of the r business and turn their
whole attention to Miimifofturing, nnd
they have such a custom, that with
proper attention they cannot fail to
make money. There is no reason in
the world why such nn establishment
should n it pay large dividends here.
In our native forests we have nn inex
haustible sup ly of timber, which, with
our fine water power, may be converted
into lumber t the least possible cost,
and our railroads nnd rivers furnish a
ready medium of traosporuiton to oth
er markets of l we, do not use our
selves. O.ily a few years ago, we were ship
ping our sash, blinds. ie from Rich
mond, Hilt i more, and other cities north
of us. For the credit of our own people,
we trust such a ttiug may not again
happen. Nature was favored us wilh
evt ry f ici i y for .'p lying ur wants iu
this respect, and our people certainly
have enough of enterprise and ergy
to reap the rich advantages. We hive
other establishments of the same char
acter of thi ot' M i-tsrs. T.mvater and
Ambtose, which we propose to notice in
d ie lime. A'io-rui'e Chronicle.

The Hon. Theresa Yclverton. Coun

gan a mountaiu journey on horseback,
while friends accompanied her by stage,

iu the day the terrified woman found'
herself nowhere in sight of hor valiant
piotcetors nod the snow pelting down.
Iu this .situation ceti her horse fail
ed her, and the unhappy lady wns com
pelled to dismount nnd w ander on alone.
When darkness set in she was overcome
with exhaustion aud was forced to seek
shelter in a hollow cedar. Sitting in
this all night, the held her horse aud
waited the morning. IV'ith daylight
she was up. and finding her horse abso
lutely useless, abandoned bint and hur
ried forward on foot. Almost t'end
w ith hunger and distress, she staggered
on if search of bouse. On the verge
of a frightful declivity, where the path
ran, she almost fainted with joy at the
sound of a human voice as she suppos
ed, nnd darting around a rock w hence
it seemed to come, she came full upon
a gritzly bear. Happiiy the beast wax
as much surprised as the lady, and she,
ii her agitation, starting back, lost lor
fooling, and rolled down the declivity.
Rruiscd, bleeding, and almost life
less, she recovered presently, and found
herself in a dark and gloomy gulch,
seemingly impenetrable to the outside
world. After frantic efforts she at last
found a bear-trail leading to the valley
beneath by a way not less precipitous
than that whfch cGe had just descend
ed so unceremoniously. The situation
was desperate, and she was forced to
attempt the hazardous path, Krtnerv
ed by her peril and continued exertions
she missed her footing ami again fell
to the foot of the rocks over 40 feet
and lay, she docs not know how long,
stunned and bleeding, where she fell.
Recovering consciousness, she again
started resolutely forward, her clothes
frozen stiffly to her limbs, and weak
from twenty-four hours' fasting. Wan
dering on, she ngaiu rticlm l A strep
declivity, and, daringly mounting n
fallen tree evhich leaned over the steep
bnuk, she slid d'nn more than fifty
feet nnd found herself in the valley,
Here, however, her strength utterly
gave out. and had it uot been for the
wonderful ch ince of a huoter happen

Mr. Ilcliwui had worked hard all

soon followed, leaving the stove rcdr
hot nnd well filb'd. The fire must have
caught in the roof from the pipe, as
t'jere was no chimurv, and Mr. II, wns
awakened about midnight by the roof
falling iu. The fire had then blocked
up the passage through the door, and
be immediitely aroused his wife, broke
open a window and pulled her And two
of his children out, none of them having
anything on but tweir night clothes,
and even iliosfi being neatly burned
off. His other boy came to the win

in pulling him nut by the shirt, when
the garment, which was badly burned,
parted, and the boy fell back into the
flames. Th cries of the little sufferers
were heard for some time afterwards,
but they could not be saved.
Mr. Helpman then conveyed his wife
and rescued children up into the
