East Tennessee reminds the traveler
very much of the upper valley and
Southwest Virginia. New railroads
are branching out over the country,
towns are being laid out, and indus
j tries established. One of the most im
! portant of these towns is Johnson
1 City, which has a population of about
! ii.OUO, and reminds one very much of
Roanoke in 1005. At this place Mr. E.
j H. Stewart, of Roanoke, bus an inter
! est in a large furniture factory. This
; town has just voted, by an over
? whelming majority, $25,000 for schools,
; and the same amount for streets.
Chattanooga has also just appropri
I ated $47,000 for schools, $50,770 for
streets, $128,000 for sewers, $88,000 for
lire department, and $20,000 for hos?

Roanoke to follow.
The Farmer's Alliance in this State
is growing in power every day. They

Buchanan, who is at the head of the

A State road congress is now in
session at N?shville. Nearly every

Under the present statue every man

roads of Tennessee are in a very bad
The congress will submit a law re?
quiring the roads to be kept up partly
by requiring every citizen, not other?

real estate. The people are deter?
mined to have better roads. Another1
good example for Virginia to follow..
A corps of engineers are locating a
railroad from Bristol to Knoxville.
They refuse to give any Information
as t'? their purpose, or their objective
point. They will not even tell who
sent them out. They are supposed to
be employed by the Norfolk and

greatly wish that this may be so, as
the Norfolk and Western is very pop

joy. The corps of engineers are now

The Interest Intense.
The following graphic description
of Salvator's race against time is taken
from the New York Sun :
An enthusiastic throng of admirers j
surrounded Salvator as che finishing
touches were being put to his toilet, j
The noble fellow seemed to realize1
that be was the cynosure of all eyes, '
and he was every inch a king as he:
lifted his bead and surveyed the
crowd. Trainer Byrnes ran ahead
and was our on the track before Sal?
vator, followed by Rosette and Nam
ouna, the last named, a two year old
Bister to Baliarat, who were to act as
pace makers, hove in tight of the
Salvator's march of triumph con?
tinued until he turned the angle lor,
the.-traight course and set out for the!
post at a hand gallop, followed by Iiis
uumbler companions. Byrnes was a
quarter of a mile up the stretch, and
iiad evidently beeu all over the
course, as he hailed Bergen wi en he
met him and said: "The going is
best in the centre lu re: keep along
here and yon will get the best of it.''
Bergen nodded assent and continued
on his way.
Mr. Culdwell told Bergen to ta!<e as
much space as he pleased for a run?
ning start, and the hoy did not draw I
rein until he was a furlong beyond
wh?re the gray-haired starter stood,
Hag iu baud. Nuino na, with her
boy's eyes as bigUUjd bright as beads
with excitement, took her position at
the [>ost, and the instant Bergen
turned Salvator's head, and permitted
the gallant chestnut to get wed un?
der way, the lad got Namouna go?
Down toward the start Salvator
rushed, gaining impetus at each
bound, and when he hashed par t the
starting post he was running for a
man's life, his Hag-like tail sweeping
gracefully in the breeze, his neck out?
stretched and eye Hashing. .Namouna

TUE GREAT RACE,
Tue Futurity stake* Captured by Sir.
Shkhpshbad Bat, Aug. 30.?There
ia probably no race that attracts nior.
public attention than the Futurity,
which is run yearly at Sheepshead
The breeder of the winner gets two
thousand dollars, whethei the horse
still belongs to him or not. The race
I run to-day was worth seventy-odd
thousand dollars to the winner. It
was captured by Mr. Belmoot's Poto?
mac, with Masher pecond, ts'trath
iueath third. Of the sixteen horees
which started, Potomac was the fa?
vorite at 2i to 1. Tho result of the
race was a popular one, as Potomac
carried most of the public's money
Five break aways were made before
a start was affected. Ambulance was
first away, with the others in a bunch
close up.' At the quarter Ambulance
still retained the lead with llussle
second, clos'fe up, Strathmeath third,
Potomac fourth, Masher fifth Bus
sie had collared Ambulance when the
half was reached and it looked as if
the fight would be between the two,
but weight began to tell on them both
and they were gradually overhauled
by Potomac, and in the stretch he led
by two lengths, Strathmeath second,
The race was now at the disposal of
Potomac, and the attention was cen?
tered on the fight for the place. It
was a bitter contest between Strath?
meath and Masher, it being so close
that it was difficult for the judgi s to
decide who had the place. The ver?
dict was finally given to Masher.
Potomac won easily by two lengths.
Mr. Belniont owns both Potomac and
Masher, so he wins both first and sec?
ond money. Hampton rode Potomac
and Masher was ridden by Bergen,
i ifzpatrick had the mount on Strath?
meath. Murphy was expected to
have the mount on Strathmeath, but
he had been suspended on account,

Early on Wednesday morning Jones

see Mrs. Daingerlield. She refused to
see him, ana he forced hi.i way up
stairs and broke into three bed rooms
before he discovered Mrs. Dainger
He at once began to beat her in a
most brutal manner, blackening her
eye and bruising her severely. The
police were telephoned for, and Jones
was taken into custody. He was
brought before Judge W yckoff, and,
as neither Mrs. Engard nor Mrs.
Daingerlield would appear against
him, he was set free, after paying a
line of $15..
