The Standard, in common with
every other newspaper in the State,
has had much to say on the subject
of public roads, and it gives us much
pleasure to have an opportunity to
say something complimentary of the
manner of working them. We pass
ed over the Viola and Vervilla roads
last Monday, and found that some
excellent work had been done on
both of them, and we learn that the
public roads all over the county hav
bee" better worked this year than
ever before. On the two roads men
tinned above some good grading and
ditching has been done, and in a few
places they have been graveled. Al
(,f the hills have" been much improv
ed; even the Bonner hill has been
made quite smooth. The work shows
a tendency toward permanent im
provement, and if the system is con
tinued for a few years, Warren coun
ty will have roads of which the peo
pie can well feel proud. Let the good
Rich deposits of both coal and
iron ore have recently been discover
ed in the Hubbard and Fults coves,
trui four to five miles south of
Viola, in this county. A pub
lic meeting was held at Viola
some days ago, ajid sufficient
money raised to make test openings
into the coal and ore banks at a num
ber of places. Several expert miners
were put to work, and the gentlemen
having the matter in charge are very
much elated over what has already
been found. One eoal vein six feet in
thickness has been- tapped. The
citizens of Viola are taking quite a
lively interest in the matter, and
when it is fully demonstrated that
the coal and iron exists in paying
quantities, their purpose is to interest

Our artists spend their skill In rounding soft
Fair curves upon thotr statues, while thorough

SOMK VERY ANCIENT BATHS.
A Model of Them Being Set l'p at (he
Museum of Hygiene.
Dr. Wales ia setting up at the Army
Medicnl Museum, in Washington, a most
interesting model of certain ancient
Roftian baths, the remains of which have
recently been dug up at Bath, England,
having been constructed at a period some
little time before the birth of Christ.
From a date so far back that history has
no record of it the baths of Bath have
been used for their medicinal effects.
When the invaders from Some came they
built great structures on the spot, which
for centuries have been Jmried beneath
ruins. Lately the spade and the pickax
have been set at work to dig out the re
mains, and most interesting relics have
Tho model at the museum shows only
a part of the original buildings, which
are represented, so far as they have been
unearthed, in the very middle part cf
the city of Bath, the present street cross
ing at a higher level. There is shown in
the oldest built section a vast apartment
that was heated by fires below, and in
which the bathers of 20 centuries past
enjoyed the pleasures of unlimited per
spiration. Attached to this were warm
plunges and a big cold plunge 60 feet in
Subsequently, as the building plans
show, another great structure was added
on, with a swimming tub 100 feet in
length, wherein the bathers might dis
port themselves. Along both sides of
this huge plunge bath were high couches
of stone, upon which the swimmers
might recline and be scraped with knives,
in the old Soman fashion, by slaves.
Thus far the building descrilied is pre
historic, but the next addition that was
made to it is known to have been erected
in the year 1627. It contains further
provisions for bathing, of a similar nat
ure, and to the whole has been added
within the last few years a huge edifice
that includes a "pu.np room," where peo
ple come to drink, and a number of single
bath rooms, in which frequenters may
find privato quarters and tubs to them
selves. Very interesting it is to observe
the way in which these several parts of
this ancient establishment have been
added on, each one being at a higher ele
vation than the next of earlier date, be
cause of the covering up of the old time
buildings with the dust and ruins of cen
turies. Grant, and Sherman.
Like most silent men, General Grant
was little given to witticisms. A writer
in the Chicago Tribune relates an anec
dote, however, which shows that he was
not without ability to say bright things
on occasion. Grant and Sherman were
discussing the plans of a campaign, when
a third general, a brigadier, entered tlu
tent a good soldier, but notorious for his
carelessness as to his personal appear
ance. The brigadier finished his errand and
went out. General Grant pulled upon bis
cigar for a few minutes in silence, and
then said :
"Sherman, I wonder whom that man
gets to wear his shirte tho first week. "
Grant and Sherman were diametrically
opposite in temperament, but each be
lieved fully in the other, and their mu
tual confidence and affection were never
disturbed by any of the petty jealousies
so distressingly common among army of
ficers. During the siege of Vicksburg Grant
announced his determination to move to
a point below the town. All the generals
vigorously opposed the plan, and Sher
man in particular gave it as his decided
opinion that the movement would be
Grant had studied the situation thor
oughly, and was not to be shaken in his
resolve. At last Sherman drew up a for
mal protest, explained ita contents to
Grant, and asked him if he had any ob
jections to sending it to General HnlUvk.
''Certainly not," replied the man of few
Grant's bold scheme was successful, as
all the world knows, and after the capit
ulation of the city he said to Sherman :
"You remeinlier that protest you wished
me to have sent to the War Depart
"Yes," answered Shermnn.
" Well, here it is. I put it in my pocket.
I thought auy time would do. I'll send
it now, or vou may have it. just as you
Sherman took it. Grant never referred
to the matter again, and the circum
stauce jvas given publicity by Sherman
