The.comet is now a splendid object
of the eastern sky in early morniag. To
get a full appreciation of the whole
scene one should rise about 4:30. Soon
after that time, if the sky is favorable,
the upper end of the tail may be seen
first above the horizon some distance
south of the sunrise point. As the hori
zon lowers by the earth's rotation, more
and more of the tail cornea Into view,
and a few minutes before 5 the nucleus
or bead of the comet will be in sight.
If there is no obstruction, the stranger
now appears in all its glory, Laving "a
tail about twenty degrees long, of a
yellowish cast. A lover of comets can
not afford to miss the view of a scene
like this. The nucleus is uncommonly
bright and round and wpj defined, look
ing in the telescope like a little moon
with a wiJe yellowish border surround
ing It. Its motion is westerly, bearing
south about one degree a day. It may
be visible for two or three weeks longer.
A XEW BCSIXES3.
Inadvertently we Lave omitted call
ing the attention of our readers to lie
Lilf column advertisement of John
'Poland, Real Estate Agent and Civil
Engineer, who has but recently estab
lished himself in business here. The
real estate businc.s, as m j be seen
from a glance at the list of transfers
published to-day, is assuming large pro
portions in and around our growing
little city, la fact it is attracting more
attention now than any other branch of
business. Morristown never before had
such bright prospects for a glorious
future. The evidences of approaching
prosperity can be seen on every Land.
Hence the rapidly increased demand
for Morristown property. The neces
sity of a lire real estate agent can at
once be seen. Mr. Toland Is a gentle
man of large experience and unques
tionable ability both as a real estate
agent and civil engineer. He is reliable,
energetic and prompt. A better man
for the place he occupies could not have
been found sny where. We have known
him for years and take pleasure in not
only welcoming him to our citizenship
but unhesitatingly commend him to the
confidence of out people and the public
generally. His oRlce is in the Rauscher
building, near the depot, where he can
be found at all Lours in the dsy ready
to receive politely ail who may visit
THE NEW HOARD.
Our annual municipal election came
off last Saturday. Mayor Gregg,
though earnestly solicited by many of
bis friends, declined on account of
urgent private interests to become a
candiJate for a third term. Conse-
uently two strong tickets were placed
n the field, one beaded for Mayor by
Ion. Wra. McFarlaud, the other by
Mj. W. D. Gammon. The friends of
both worked zealously, but good
naturedly for their respective favorites,
all conceding that in the election of
either the town would secure the ser
vices of a trustworthy, efficient cfiicer.
It was a neck and neck race, resulting
in the election of Mr. McFarland by a
insjuityof eleven votes.
The Board for the ensuing year is:
Mayor Wni. McFarlaad.
Aldermen C. D. Merrett, J. D.
Miller, Harvey Look, W. I Carriger,
B. F. Mitchell, T. D. Craig. .
We feel assured that the interests of
the town can be safely entrusted to
their bands. To the retiring Mayor,
Maj. A. II. Gregg, the thanks of our
people are justly due for bis valuable
services to the town during Lis ad
ministration. In a large measure we
owe to his indefatiguable labors in our
interest the tide of prosperity that U
setting in on us so rapidly, and our
citizens will long cherish a grateful
remembrance of his work.

DA WDSON'S BUSINESS DIRECTO
RY OF MORRISTOWN.
31 r. J. P. Davidson ia now canvassing
the city for the purpose of getting up a
Business Directory of Morristown. He
is a gentleman of intelligence and has
had much experience In the business
having within the past few years gotUn
up some of the most handsome and pop
ular business directories in the various
cities of the United States. His plan is
something new and unique, and works
like a chat in. A person to observe a
copy of 21 r. Davidson's Directory la its
fiuished form, would at once come to
the conclusion that he had been aided
with a Chromatic press in the blending
of the beautiful colors. But such Is not
the case, for the lettering is done by a
pen and brush, and in a masterly style
too, showing great artistic taste in de
sign and execution of wotk. He blends
the colors on the prominent line of a
bu-iness card, which indeed, makes it
attractive an 1 pleasing to the eye. As
soon as Mr. Davidson succeeds ia ob
taining a sufficient number of cards
from our business men, he will push his
Directory through to completion, which
will require about two week's time,
and when finished he will have it sus
pended in the pest-office for general in
spection by the public. It is a cheap
and good way for a man to advertise
his business, and we trust our business
men will not be slow in taking bold cf
the enterprise. Mr. Davidson ia stop
ping at the Tate House where any or
ders left for him will be promptly at
tended to. Let those who want their
business placed before the public in an
artistic and well-displayed advertise
ment, not fail to patronize Mr. J. P.

To tha Editor of Taa Uorrtatown Gaaatta :
I've been thinking for a long lime I
would write and tell you how we all get
along np here on tha river. Naw we
all know tbat Mrs.. Robert Lyle makes
the best butter ef any one around here,
bat do yoa know it t ber butter com
mands a higher price than any one's.
Ssensible merchants finds it pays better
to buy that kind of butter. Wa envy
Mr. Stubblefield his good luck, for, as
I understand, he received two cans of
Mrs. Lyle's most excellent butter last
week. He's a wide-awake man and al
ways knows when to go to get the best
of every thing. C -
Probably yon have heard that our
friend, and brother in the church, bad
the. misfortune of having a very fine
buggy-horse stolen a few weeks since.
Brother Brown entertains some hopes
of its recovery. I think they have bad
some information concerning its where
abouts, but nothing very definite, if I
understand correctly. All of bis neigh
bors unite in this one wish, viz : That
he will succeed in getting Lis horse
back, and in punishing the thief ta the
full extent of the law.
Hiss Mattie Luster, daughter of Wil-
llam Luster, was married oa the 20th to
Mr. Conway, of Conway's ferry. It
was quite a romantic wedding ; the
bride and oridegroom elect, with five
others started out oa horse-back, cross
ed the river at J. L. Cain's and were
married la Cocke county oa the very
banks of the river. It was a scene cal
culated to awaken within the heart a
love far nature, and for all mankind ;
the beautiful Nola Cbucky flowing
swiftly and smoothly over its pebbly
bed, the overhanging trees lapping their
green foliage la Its crystal waters, and
the soft balmy zephyrs of evening waft
ing a perfume from the flowers hidden
'neath the luxurant grass; all, all would
inspire a love for Him who made it.
May the lives of these young people be
ss placid as the river upon whose banks
they were united.
I learned recently that Miss Lula
Taylor of Russell ville was married. Her
husband made a wise srlectlon yes, he
chose a jewel of intrinsic value. I
would that their life could be all tbat
they would wish it
We are having a glorious meeting up
here, aud I feel like I want the whole
world to know it. Bro. Gilbert has been
with us ten days has worked faithful
and well. Up to this time there has
been about six who have found the love
of Jesus precious to tbeir souls and
twice that many are seeking the way of
eternal life. God help them, is the
prayer of every true Christian heart.
Now is tha time to build a church. God
knows we need it bad enough. Go to
wcrk neighbors and friends and build it.
Don't yoa know, my neighbor?, if we
could hear the church bell ring out clear
and sweet on Sabbath morns, if we
could hear the pure, sweet voices of our
boys and girls blended with the full,
rich notes of the organ, and know that
within that church, be it ever so humble,
prayers were offered each Sunday for
the good of our people tbat it would
add a charm to God's day never known
befere. Some may urge the excuse that
they are "too old." Not so I leave
when you die, a shrine at which your
children, and grandchildren can wor
ship. Others may say, "I am not able,"
I r-ay you are. God has abundantly
blessed in this year. Broad green
meadow lands stretch out in the dis
tance, dotted with cattle, herses, sheep
and hogs. Fields of golden corn are ta
be seen, and the wheat crep was good.
There has been very little sickness tbat I
can hear of, and what more could you
ask t No, your hearts are too cold,

. A II A WKIN8 TREAT.
To tha Editor at Tha Xurristo-va OaantU:
A very laughable event as I am cred
itably informed, occurred at Ycm's Ho
tel, Mossy Creek, on the day the three
candidatea for Governor, Hawkins, Fus
sell and Bt asley spake at that place.
Having refused to partake oj a good
warm dinuer prepared for them by the
very polita and accommodating land
lard," these three great men were seat
ed in circle on the porch of sai l hotel,
with a fine large watermellon occupying
a central position accessible alike to
"The question arose among th by
standers as to whose treat it was, and it
wss undecided until a plain, unassuming
gentleman remarked tbat to his mind
there was no question la it that Haw
kins was simply paying off his hande.
To a one-eyed mta it looks a good
deal like Messrs. Fussell and Beasley
are in Governor Hawkins employ.
