and sliii further if disposed to Ashe

neeceary to accomplish the result.
Morris-town is bright and evidently
hopeful. It is a comparatively ne
town and has a trad that ia increasing.
Directly, tbe inhabitants hope to have
a railroad to Cumberland Gp, and once
ia Kentucky, to Cincinnati, or some
point on the Ohio River. They have a
notion that they will be able to take a

AH honor, isy we, to the eoterprhing
spirit of Ibe business men of Morris
town. We may not succeed in securing
the woolen mills, but we are now con
fident that we deserve success. Last
Friday morning a number of our busi
ness men met in the office of Judge W.
McFarland, to take into consideration
the propriety ef adopting measures to
secure the erection of a woolen factory
here. Dr. M. Carriger was called to
the chair and W. H. Coffman was ap
pointed secretary. Remarks were made
by Col. O. C. King, Judge Wm. Mc
Farland, Dr. Carriger, Capt. J, C. Hod
ges and Wm. Van Huss. Jt was resolv
ed that a purse be raised by voluntary
subscription te purchase, or aid in pur
chasing, a suitable site for the faetory,
to be donated to B. F. Stevens & Bro.
A committee was appointed to solicit
subscriptiens, and the meeting adjourn
ed until Saturday morning, 10 o'cloc' .
At that time the meeting convened and
tbe committee reported that $700 bad
been subscribed, and expressed the be
lief that the amount would be increised
to very nearly $1,000. Subjoined is a
list of the subscribers to the fund, at
the close of the meeting on Saturday
morning :

some of the wealthiest citizens of the
town are conspicuous for their absence
from the list. We are informed, how
ever, by a member of tbe committee,
that Merntt & McCrary will subscribe

honor, say we, to the public spirited

The monthly financial statement ef
Supreme Recorder 8acket, of, the Anci
ent Order of United Workmen, makes a
most gratifying exhibit for the mem
bers of this order. During the past
thirty days $184,000 was paid out to
widows and orphans. A splendid lodge
was organiz-d at Ooltawab, James
county, on the 5th f this month, by
D. G. M. W. Dr. G. W. Stewart. Dr
Stewart Is one of the bet organizer
the order has. The order bas been in
existence over fifteen yesrs, and is to
day Increasing more rapidly and is in a
more prosperous condition than ever.
It bas a general relief law that provides
for any emergency in the way of an ex
cessive death rate in any one of the
jurisdictions. It has the safest and best
financial system that could po-sibly be
devised by men of long experience in
beneficiary orders; the laws governing
this department have given such entire
satisfaction that they have not been
changed lor several years. Should
there be any outstanding liabilities af
ter issuing twenty-eight assessments
for the twelve months eading May 1,
1884, they will be turned over u the
supreme ledge as this is the highest
rate the order can be assessed io any
one year in Tennessee. The order
guarantees absolute safety, protection
and security to all members who pay
their assscs8ments promptly within the
time prescribed by the regulations. The
growth of this great beneficiary order
has been marvelous. It has paid out in
the order at large about $7,300,000; of
this amount $375,000 was received by
the widows and orphans residing here
in Tennessee. The total membership
of the order is 126,767.

"One of the Shepherds of Bethle
hem," is the title of a devout Christian
poem published anonymously. It giTes
the shepherd's story of the appearance
of the angel whe announced the glad
tidings of the birth of Christ; he closes
his wonderful story with these lines:
I anrely heard tbe angel ay, "
"To toc a child Is born to-day ; , :
A Saviour csto too la given I" t
Obtby! art thou born to ma T
Henceforth my inmost heart ehall be
Thy slavr, to gladly worship thee.
O human Child I ' O Child DiTine t ;
Art thou a SaTiour T Art thou mine,
: Mini, whom herald angela aanf ,- .
VIxvb, for whom the heavens rang,
Aa for OodB own Son and heir,
Fit rejoicing to prepare T
Never more can I repine ;
Thou art mine, forever mine I
The poem goes on to tell how the
shepherd studied the prophecies of the
coming Christ, and how
Guarding hia flock, the shepherd went,
Cpon the Holy Babe Intent ;
Aa In a manger ruda and wild,
Within hia heart ha bore the Child,
And less to earth and more to heaven, .
His dally thought and care was given.
The shepherd's heart, once fierce and wild.
Grew pure and peaceful, meek and mild.
Iide the most Holy, Holy Child,
Till down the sky an angel trod, -With
darkne-s veiled, w ith silent shod, ,
And bore him to the heart of God.
The poem, which is the expression of
deep religious feelings, closes with these
lines :
0 Shepherd! on that shining night
Thou sawest him, the ''Light of light."
Tbe Babe of Bethlehem, the King
Who doth our hearts renew, and bring
Adorning at his feet to sing!
1 envy not that unto thee
Was given the Holy Child to see,
Jesus! who eame for thee and me;
Nor. that I see him not, will grieve :
I shall behold him! and my brow
His blessings crowneth, even now;
"Blessed are they,"
I hear him aay,
-Who have not seen me, yet believe,"
My faith this blessing doth receive. s
If y Lord! my life! mj Joy! my Light -These
songs that sing to me by night'.
These voices, and these visions bright,
Thou glvest, thou! my heart's delight.
O Christ! thy Kingdom hath increased;
The praise of angels hath' not ceased?
And the sweetest song in heaven or earth
Is still the story of thy birth.
So, Christmas Is here again !
While the house sleeps, quiet aa death.
'Neath the midnight moon comes the Waits' shrill
And we listen and hold our breath . u .. 1
The Christmas that mgbt have been .
It ia borne in the far-off sound.
Down the empty street, with the tread of feet
That lie silent underground.
The Christmas we have and hold.
With a tremulou, tender strain
Half Joy, half fear. Be the paalm of the years,
"Grief passes, blessings remain 1"
The Christmas that God will give,
Long after all these are o'er, .
When Is day nor nhfht, for the Lamb is our light,
And we live for evermore.
X). M. MuLocr.
Sweet Christmas bells are ringing
Glad muaio round the earth.
And voices bright are singing
The Stery of Hia birth.
Who came an Infant lowly.
And in the manner lay,
To save, and make ua holy,
To turn our night to day.
But as we sing, we listen;
For songs o'er Xiethlebem's plains,
Where heav'nly splendors glisten,
Break forth In wondrous strains,
To ths Shepherds meek revealing
That Christ, the Lord, is come.
To give His peopln healing,
And bring His loved ones home.
To these aweet nofces of gladiness,
Let eager heart reply,
Tot Christ bath binish'd sadness.
And ain and sorrow die.
We hasten forth to meet Thee,
O ! Babe, O ! King, with songs
Of Christmas J oy we groet Thee,
And shouts of happy throngs.

The Printer1 Circular makes the fol
lowing sensible suggestion concerning
that important institution, the local
newspaper : A largt portion ef people
do nothing to support their local paper,
yet reap the benefit syery day of the
editor's work. A man mav sav. "ad-
vertising does not pay in business."
And yet the fact Is, but for the paper,
the town in which be does business
would be unknown ; tbe railroad over
which he ships his goods would be un
built, and he himself would be unheard
of if it were not for the newspapers he
says does him no good. ' The local pa
per is of advantage to every man in the
community, and when a man refuses to
contribute to the support of the paper
on the ground that "it does him no
good," he might just as well refuse to
pay his taxes for the support , of the
courts and polico force, on the same
ground that he never breaks the law
and does not need any officers.
