NEWS AND NOTSS.
If there is ono thing it is im
possible to over color or depict in
describing the Cumberland plateau,
it is the healthy diameter., of the
climate and atmosphere. ' It charms
all acquainted with it, both the
strong and the weak, and while to
the first it is delightful, it is to the
second both encouf aging and delight
ful. It is an easy thing, indeed, to
point out instances where the stay
o'f but a few . weeks has wrought
such a difference in the vigour of
a weak constitution, proceeding
cither from incipientlung complaint,
or life ' amid malarial influences,
that the duties . of life .and the
pleasures of living have, been enter
ed into with a more than doubled
zest. If the vast number of people
in this country, surrounded by un
healthy influences, could realize our
immunity from consumption and
malaria, it would not be many years
before the plateau would be well
settled. Those who have made
the grand discovery and can come
among us are not a few, and will
We occasionally receive letters
from enquirers asking about the
school terms, and how school funds
are raised, in Tennessee.
There is a permanent school fund
in the State, the interest of which
goes to the public schools; the State
also levies a tax of 10 cents on each
100 worth of taxable' property;
and over and above this the coun
ties are allowed to levy an addition
al tax, which right most counties
avail themselves of. Tho county tax
ranges from 5 to 25 cents on $100.
The result is, we have public schools
in the rural districts of most of the
counties from three to five months
in the year. A great many neigh
borhoods have schools from six to
ten months. For high class schools
and Universities, Tennessee ranks
amoung the very first States in the
Union. . , , '
Lieutenant Greely, who, with
twenty-five men,' left our "shores for
the North Pole, three jjears ago, was
discovered off Cape Sabine, in
Smith's Sound, on June 22, 1884,
by Commander W. S. Schley, of
the U. S. Relief Expedition. Of
tho original 25 members of the
party 19 died of starvation, in spite
of the large, supplies which they
carried along and of all the cached
(ice-hidden) provisions left by for
mcr expeditions. When the survi
vors were found they were within
forty-eight hours of death, and in a
most pitiable plight. The Greely
voyage altogether," however, was a
success, the highest point, by four
miles, over every previous voyage
having been reached, and many new
and highly valuable geographica
Man has ever lived by "witty in
ventions" and sought out new paths
to wealth and material success. It
was thought, perhaps, by not a few,
in tho earlier days, that in some
way Rugby would give a straight,
and quick and "royal road" to
wealth; but not many weeks passed
by ere it was seen that only by the
sweat of the brow could man ever
make 'money here, upon the land.
And is not such tho case anywhere?
i But are there not other means of
investing capital and turning to
good account the materials and
locality around us than aro presen
ted in the actual working of the
soil? There are very, many articles
connected with wood, such as the
lathe and the cabinet maker's tools
can turn out, that might well com
mand the attention. There is, too
at Rugby Road, a large quantity of
most excellent clay that could be
very profitably used by a pottery
company. : It has been fully tested
and only awaits the hand and wheel
of the potter.- Thus in the clay
under our feet and the timber over
and all around us wealth Is presen
ted to the man who has sufficient
wealth of resource to extract and
utilize it. There are markets on
every hand in Tennessee for the
products of small industrial manu
factories, for, at present, the State
imports fully two-thirds of those
articles it could and should make at

The total number of negroes in

same in evdry 20 years. From
these figures a writer in the North
American Review, making allowance
for foreign and Northern immigra

the negroes in every Southern State
will be double the number of
whites. , .
The cholera outbreak in this
country in 1873 developed almost
simultaneously iu Ohio, Minnesota
and Dakota and appeared to take
infection in each case from the bag
gage of immigrants. The disease
appeared within thirty-six hours
after the baggage was unpacked.
The Medical News says the evidence
as to the origin of at least these
three outbreaks, widely distant
from each other, was conclu
sive and indicates that all baggage
from infected ports should be sub
jected to a most thorough disinfec
tion before being allowed on shore.
In that year cholera appeared in
the United States before it reached
Paris. - - - -
