strong name, and Is in honor of as

of in this generation. To Mrs. Curtis'
good taste is duo the credit of christen

gated to her alone tho pleasant duty of
naming the institution.

Anotiior Wreck on tho C &. WJ.
Wednesday morning an extra freight
train in charge of Conductor Ritten
house, southbound on tho C. & M. Ry.,
was wrecked a short distanco south
of Dudlev. Six ears loaded with iron
pipe and supplies were smashed to
pieces and the track for a considerable
distance almost obliterated. Fortu
nately no one was hurt, although a
man stauding on tho creek bank at the
placo of tho accident had a narrow es
cape from being crushed under the
mass of iron. The causo of the wreck
it. not certainly known, though it is
generally surmised to have been due
to a dofectivo rail. Xorthbouifd. and
southbound passenger trains wero
compelled to transfer and wore some
what delayed in consequence. Tho C
,fc M. ought to start a man out to se
cure tho left hind foot of a graveyard
