The Mining Troubles in East Ten
nessee. The sickly sympathy for East Ten
nessee outlaws who turned loose five
hundred convicts upon the State is
gradually giving way to a more
sensible feeling and people are begin
ning to realize that a great many of
the miners and labor agitators are no
better class of citizens than the con
victs they released. The following
special to last Sunday's American
establishes the same position taken
by the Standard at the very begin
ning of the Briceville trouble:
Rxoxville, Nov. 7. Informa
tion reached this city to-night from
Nashville that the Governor and
prison officials have decided that the
convicts must be returned to the
Briceville and Coal Creek mines.
The better class of citizens here are
unanimous that this decision is right
and the Governor will be sustained.
If he needs help he can secure it htve
by calling on the proper men in the
right way. The question now arises,
"Will there be trouble If the con
victs are returned?" This cannot be
definitely answered, but the opinion
of conservative men is that there will
not. The miners have been playing
bluff game from the start, feeling
that they were backed by public
sentiment in this section. They
never intended any bloodshed. In
the attack on the militia last July,
when the soldiers and convicts were
boxed up and all sent to Knoxville,
no bloodshed was Intended. Pre
vious to the attack the miners in
Hecret meeting decided that there
should be no bloodshed. They dis
cussed the proposed attack freely and
decided to make It, "because," said
their leaders "have not the militia
invited us to come and get their con
IcLs, and said they would not. fight
Thus did the evil come from the
act of one company which was on
guard there, a company from Chatta
nooga. It is too late to go back to
previous mistakes now, but it may
be said that in the veryfirfit instance
it was a mistake to take the militia
there, us the convicts could have been
taken back by the Governor in per
son. The individual most to blame
for this error is the sheriff of Ander
son County, who called on Gov.
Buchanan for troops.' The subse
quent attack and capture of the
troops are matteis ot history. The
result of it all has been to embolden
the miners, particularly the lawless
element among them, so the violent
acts of a week ago came as a natural
consequence. The miners now feel
so perfectly masters of the situation
that they may resort to arms, but
they will not do so it given to under
stand that they are to come in con
tact with men who know what it is
to obey law and uphold it. Should
a strong force of militia from' Middle
and West Tennessee be sent there
under the command of experienced
men, who will give the lawless
spirits to understand that any act on
their part looking to an attack means
death to them, there will never be a
gun fired. The only really serious
question to be considered is this
phase of the case. The militia can
not lie kept at the mines always.
What then will be done when they
are withdrawn? To this the ans
wer is made, punish those engaged in
the previous attacks and forever des
troy the disposition to mob.
Your correspondent has been
among the miners a great deal, and
there are many good men among
them. But there are many who
propose to override all law. Stern
prompt action is demanded to meet
their case. The vast majority of
people are opposed to the convict
laws and convict lease system, but
they say thnt the miners must wait
until it is repealed, and that the law
must be upheld while it is on the
statute books. The public is interest
ed in knowing what the outcome of
the trouble will be. The review is
given after careful investigation. I
has been slated several times since
last summer that when the next at
tack was made the convicts would be
released, furnished chrfhes and run
into the mountains. It turned out
true. It may now be stated that any
half-hearted policy, if the convicts
are taken back, means tumble and
probably bliRwUlied and death
Prompt, vigorous aciion, backed by
proper lorce, means the restoration
gt order where chaos now reigns
This is the opinion of men who have
given niucn study tu the situation.
The Ait of Making Poultices.
The moist heat, which acting alone
will quell all but the mast violent in
flammations, is often most conve
niently attained by means of poul
tices, which it is desirable that every
girl who is siudying household du
ties should loam to make. We give
below authoritative directions for
making those most commonly used :
Flaxseed Poultices. rour suffi
cient boiling water over the ground
flaxseed to make it as thick cream,
and let the mixture 6lmmer a few
minutes. Apply as hot as can be
Mustard Poultices Mix equal
quantities of mustard, cornmeal and
flour In warm water until just thick
enough not to run. Spread it over
the poultice cloth, and if a very
quick action of the poultice is desir
ed, sprinkle a little clear mustard on
before folding the cloth over it. Ap

Bread and Milk Poultice Simmer

to mash smoothly. Crackers may
be used instead of bread, if neces
Indian-Meal Poultice Stir the
cornmeal into water, and cook like
mush for five minutes or more.
Slippery-Elm Poultice Pour boil

All classes of poultices should be
spread on oue-half of an oblong piece
of thin muslin ; the other half should
then be folded over the spread mass
and the loose edges carefully joined
with needle and thread.
An old physician, retired from
practice, having had placed in his
hands by an East India missionary
the formula of a simple vegetable
remedy for the speedy and perma

Catarrh, Asthma and all thr at and
Lung Affections, also a positive and
radical cure for Nervous Debility and
all Nervous Complaints, after having
tested its wonderful curative powers
in thousands of cases, has felt it his
duty to make it known to his suffer

and a desire to relievo human suffer

It's too late for snake stories In
this neck o' the woods, but Colonel
Bob Eastham is our authority for a
real, genuine fishy truth. It is about
this wise : Cyrus Ellis, who works at
Henry's camp, about seven miles
above this place, succeeded In land

last week without hook or line. lie
fas'ened a stout slick in the bank to
which was tied a short, piece of gum,
and to this was attached a strip of
red flannel, which was allowed to
float on the water. The fish would
take hold of the flannel, run as fur as
the gum would stretch, and in the
rebound of the gum would be thrown
out on dry laud. Mr. Ellis was very
busy du-ing the day and had not
time to fi-ii in the old way.

A Remarkable River.
On the African shore, near the
Gulf of Aden, and connecting the
LakeofAssal with the main ocean,
may be found one of the most won
derful rivers in the world. This
curiosity does not flow to,. but from,
the ocean towards inland. The sur
face of Lake Assal itself is nearly
700 feet below the mean tide and it is
fed by this pa-adoxical river, which
is about 22 mile. ?n length. It
is highly probable that the whole
basin which the lagoon partly fills
was once an arm of the sea, which be
came separated therefrom by the
duning of loose sand. The inflowing
river has a limited volume, being
fullest, of course, at high tide, and
has filled the basin to such an extent
that evaporation and supply exactly
balance each other.

A remn'-kab'e snake story was told
by a res-dent of Cla";on recently. A
farmer who I'ved near Clarion town
was mowing in a field when he was
a(iacked by a whi.e snake fully 10
feet in length. The repii'e co'led it
self arouod the fa-mer's waist and
gazed Ihiedly in his face, evidently
trying to charm him. Sharing off
the dizzy feeling c.used by the
snake's hypnotic gaze, the farmer cut
it to pieces with the scythe, and then,
exhausied with f ight and ovcere:
tion, sank to the ground. .The head
of the snake, with a portion of the
body, lay near him, and the odor
caused him to pick it up. He found
it was an albino snake. The'peculiar
formation of the snake's eyes caused
h:m to examine them closely, and he
d'scovered a perfect reproduction of
lr" 3 face photographed in the contre
of h.is eye. He brought the snake to
town, where it was photographed
and preserved in alcohol. The nega
live taken by the photographer
shows the snake's eye with the farm
er's face as clea 'ly as if taken with a
