' Dr. Cornelius ot Berea. was here
ednetday to go before the Fiscal
Court, and ask the court to build a
bridge across Roundstone creel
near sinks, guararteeing, that in
event the county built the bridge
that he would cou meuce as soon
as possible, the construction of a 14
fcot dam across the creek just
above Sings and the erection of a
flour mill of son ething like 106
barrels per day compacity. The
Doctor said that I25OOO or $3C00
would be expended. He made a
personal donation of $100 toward
the erection of the bridge. The
Fiscal Court resj: orided to the re
quest of Dr. CorneliYS, and a
number of citfzt ns from the East
side of the county, and placed an
order fpr a bridge, a reproduction
of the oae at Orlando, which will
be ready for use inside ot ninety
days. This means much to the
people of that sid- of the count ;
to say nothing of what such an
iuterpriseas Dr. Cornelius proposes
