By far the most, novel, convenient,
and valuable business Calender for
1888 is the Columbia Bicycle Calen
dar and Stand, just issued by the
Pope Manufacturing Company, of
Boston, Mass. In this calendar i
new departure has been made, decid
edly unique aud different frjm any
previous attempt in calendar construc
tion. The calendar propt-r is in the
form of a pad, coutaiuiug 366 leaves
one for each day in the year, to be
torn 08 daily. The leaves are 5$ by
2 inches, aud a portion of each leaf
is left blank for memoranda. The
pad rests upon a portable stand, which
takes up but little more room than
the pad itself, and when placed upon
the desk or writing table the entire
surface of the date leaf is brought di
rectly, and left constantly, befure the
eye, furnishing the date and memo
randa, impossible to be overlooked
Besides the month, the day of the
month, and the day of the week, the
numbers of (he days- of the year
passed and to en me are specified, aud
upon each slip appears, as in the pre
vious Columbia calendars, qjotatious
pertaining to cycling from leading
publications and prominent writers on
both sides of the ocean.
Roller I lour Mill.
At last we are to have a big roller
flout mill on the lot on the east side
of the L & N. road, adjoining Mi.
StapletonV. A company has been
formed and sand is now being hauled
to commence building. We learn
that the mill proper will be 35x40
feet and three or four stories higb.
The engine house will be 20x40 feet.
We have not yet been able to get full
particulars, but will do to soon. This
will emphatically fill a "long felt
want" iu our town, and we believe
will pay the stockholders haudsomely,
besides helping the towu.

KILLED BY A3 EXCISE.
A Fatal Frog, Two Tramps, a Dark
Night aud N Lights for
Last TSaturday night, while the
Memphis accommodation engine was
backing around the yard to the turn
table, two tramps attempted to cross
oe tracks ahead of the engine, be
tween the transfer shed and hotel.
when one of them Fred Upp, of
Iavana, III., aged about 21 was
illed. The other, Irviu Boughtou,
of Victor, N. Y., barely escaped, and
did not know of his companion's mis
fortune for a few moments. Missing
him, he went back and found his re
mains. Engineer Elmo did not know
of the casualty until his return from
the turntable. It is thought that one
of Upp's feet got caught in a frog,
aud he coul l not escape in time to
save himself. Both his legs were
grouud to pieces and his facj and
head bruised and scratched. His
body was dragged and rolled about
twenty feet by the engine, and he
breathed only a few moments after he
was found. It is thought it was the
intention of the two men to steal a
ride on the north bouud I. C. passen
ger train, which was standing near by
and was about ready to pull out, as
the8urvivor, Boughton, sail they had
intended to start back home next
morning. N. J. Heathcock, Esq.,
summoned a jury of inquest, who re
turned a verdict iu accordance with
above facts. The remains were in.
terred at the expeuse of the county
next day. It seems that Upp's fami
y are good, respectable people, and
they telegraphed t hold his remaius
until they could send for them. Mr.
J. F. Ruhl, his brother-in-law, came
here last Wednesday and had the re
mains shipped back home for inter-'
ment. We have heard considerable
complaint lately about trains switch-
ing iu the daytime and at night with
no one on the rear eud of the train to
warn people of danger. There have
been several narrow escapes on that
account. No flagmen are stationed
at street crossings, aud for that reason
it is more important that some one
should be on the ends of traius while
switching. It is a frequent occur
rence for three or four trains to be
switching in the yard at the same
time. It is also proper for us tn euv
that there was no ciossiug where Upp
was killed, aud that he probably lmd
no business on the railroad yard;
hence uo blame cau be attached to
Mr. Elmo, the engineer, who was
backing hi eugine at a speed of four
or five miles an hour and could not
see the meu in the darkness. Two or
three headlights or electric lights are
badly needed in the yard here.aud we
hope the two companies will take the
matter under fovoralde consideration.
