The Citizens' Telephone Company
Has Mot Changed Hands.
The Hell Company Made a Proposi
tion, and Stockholders Will Meet
To-day to Consider it.
Rumors were afloat through the
country this week to the effect that
the Citizens' Telephone Company
had sold out to the Bell. The rumor
was false, however, but the fact
about the case is this:
Last week the Bell Company
made a proposition to the Citizens',
offering to pay all the debts of the
company, aud give residence rates
at per month, offices $2.25, and
business houses at $3 per month on
a five-year contract. The debts of
the Citizens' Company amount to
$4,000 in round numbers.
Meeting of Stockholders.
A mass meeting of the stock
holders of the Citizens' Company
have been called to meet to-day at
12 o'clock in the Opera House to
consider the proposition. It is
urged that every stockholder be in
Primary Tor Circuit Judge Candidate to
be Held March 12.
The friends and supporters of
Messfs. Sam Holding and E. 8. Fow
ler met last Saturday and agreed to
holding a primary election in this
county on March 12, for the selection
of a candidate from Maury for the
Circuit Judgeship of this district,
these gentlemen being the only can
didates from this county for the
place. This action was taken for
the reason that Maury at present has
none of the district offices, and,
basing her claims upon this ground,
she is justly entitled to this one, and
to have more than one candidate In
the field would jeopardize her inter
ests. The conference committee deter
mined that all parties who had sup
ported either Bryan or Palmer, or
who had heretofore affiliated with
the Democratic party, should be al
lowed to vote. This will let in not
only the straight Democrats, but
the Palmerites and the Bryan Popu
lists as well, and the County Demo
cratic Executive Committee will be
asked to issue a call in accordance
with the plan as agreed upon.

to the genius of John Trotwood

decided interest, and Prof. Merrill
will face to-night as cultured and
refined an audience as he has ever

classic in the land of its birth, and
will live as long as the Middle Basin

was Hiking over the (lend leaves of his past
the other night, "but I never struck such
a graft as I was up ngalnst the year I win
tered in Albany. A friend got mo a little
job there that paid me a couplo of dollars

pass down to New York and back every
week. I might hnvo starved if I had been

So I sot my wits to ferreting.

may chargo 10 or 15 cents, and'

friend in New York who looked up the
other end. Then I would write to the par
tics something like this:
" 'A bill detrimental to your interests
has been introduced here. Better come up

honest plunk I worked all the boys I

Mr. Bryce relates an amusing anecdote
which ho got from a missionary. A Basuto
had returned to his native country from
the diamond mines. He described to tho
missionary his experiences there. On one
occasion his eye had fallen on a valuable
diamond in the clay he was breaking into
fragments. Whllo he was endeavoring to
pick it up he perceived the overseer ap
proaching, and having it by this time in his
hand he was for a moment terribly fright
ened, the punishment for tho th-ft bolng
very severe. Tho overseer, however, passed
on. "And then," said the Basuto, "I
knew that there was indeed a God, for ho
had preserved me." London News.
