A. or lhl« City Remember ed by President Albert Fink, ot Ibe K.T. V. dr Do. R. R., In lbs Sam of 8350.00. Some time ago Rev. Dr. Bryson wrote to Mr. Fink, the President of the E. T. V. & Ga. system of railways, thanking him for the use of the rooms at the pas senger depot here, in which he took oc casion to ask Mr. Fink to aid the Asso ciation financially, in order to put the depot rooms in repair, as the Associa tion were about to enlarge their sphere of usefulness, and establish a railroad branch of the Y. M. C. A. He stated that about $250 were required to put the rooms in order for this work. Mr. Fink replied to Dr. Bryson,thank ing him for the interest our Association was taking in behalf of the Railroad em ployees, and added that he had instruct ed the Division Superintendent of the M. & C. line to devote the entire amount —$250—out of the company’s funds, to place the rooms in the proper shape Dr. Bryson wants them to appear in. 'this is unquestionably, a kind and generous deed, and one that will live long after Mr. Fink, and many of us have passed away. —The State Normal school has contracted for the building of dor mitories. I M. E. District Conference. Tje moi-t interesting and plersmt sessiou of tie Huntsville District C >n’erence of the M E Church con vened at DecaH ur last week. Conference opened at 9 o’clock a. in. P E L ikin was in the chair. Rev M M McKiu ney was chosen secretary, and after calling the roll the order of business was taken up and rapidly dispensed. Toe P E reported th r District as in a prc sper ous grow i ig condition. Each charge w is well represented with consid . eraLle improvements Revivals have been held which resulted in the sal' vatiou of ni' ny souls. It is quite encouraging to note the ground the g aud old church has gaiutd in the few pist years. While we have made much progress both as a conference aud church in uplifting humani y in this part of the field, yet there is room for more improve ments. Ah we survey the field and become assoc a!ed with the needs of our peo ple, we r< a lily recall the words of the blessed Master, “TLe harvest is tr. at ii il l the laborers are few.” How grand our opportunities, how blessed our privileges, how great our responsibilities. We are pleased to have iu our midst Rev H N Brown, a graduate of Gammon School of The ology, an 1 Pastor of Huutsville charge, who is doing a grand work, and who is destined to become a Jer usalem blade in the hand of the Mas ter in ibis noble work. Deiatur, the seat of the couferei ce will ever be remembered by the mem bers of the confert nee for their cor* dial hospitality. The t ry heiog on a boom, con sequently it has a rapid growth and oar exc* lleut] ( hutch withthe Rev M M McKlnmy as P stor, is conspic iously situated ai d grand results are expected. Toe outlook as to educational ad vantages is better new thnn ever be fore. At our last session of the An nual Co;.fereuce which convened last Dec 9th at Huntsville Prof A VV Me Kinney was appointed as Principal of the Hast Normal Institute, to which work he is concentrating all of his powirs. This school ;s sucead ing nicely, and we expect nothing else but success from such a worker as Prof McKinney. Through this school we mean to lay the foundation of a structure which is lasting. Awake ! awake ! The rn -ster now is calling ua. Arise! arise ! aud trusting in bis word. Go forth ! go forth ! pioclaim the ysar of the jub ilee. And take the cross, the blessed cross of Christ our Lord, and Faith ful s-ddiers here below, only Jesus will we know, shouting fiea salvation as over the world we go. B G. Smith, T. G. LeV ert.

Work of Beanodellnw the Huntsville Hotel to Begin at Onee. A Mercury reporter learned yesterday that Mr. Wheeler, architect tor the North Alabama Improvement Company, had submitted the plans and specification of the new hotel to be erected on the site of the Huntsville House, and that they had been accepted by the Company, and the contract for building same would be let next Saturday. We also learned that an elegant stone huilt hotel would be erected on Monte Sano, in addition to a dozen or moie cottages to receive tbe hundreds of guests who will flock to this natural summer retreat. The Opera House, too, is to be remod eled this summer, so that in our city of elegant residences we may expect a busy time. The mountain property is valuable for building lota, and owners of property there who wish to dispose of building lots will have no trouble in finding a real estate market. Last evening a number of gentlemen, capitalists from Decatur, came up from that town accompanied by Mr. Win. F. Baldridge, for the purpose, we are told, of purchasing residence sites on Monte Sano. We hope that property owners won’t lose their heads when purchasers come amongst them, and aak fabulous prices for their land. The fact cannot any louger be disgnis ed that Huntsville is looking upward. Had we had the right kind of men in Huntsville when the North and South Alabama Railway was being built, our city would to day have been tbe largest, as it always has been tbe most beautiful and most healthful, town in North Ala. —Merrury. —Mr. C.
