The "hit" in one of our county papers of last week seems, like all such efforts, in stir up anything but geod feelmg and should uot be repeated, or ofien remarked about, as nothing so injures a community, or the es timation of it by others, as the appearance of general commotion goiug on within, and we feel as.-ured that no one will continue any thing menacing to our best and conjoined interests. All selfishness should be banished from the business as well as the social and home circle, and allow peace and harmony to reign supreme. Jas. . Kohinton seems very uucertain about locating his mill on Pin river. It is the belief of many now that he will either erect a mill up the river near the timber or run his logs to Alma, all on account of the "dam" uncertainty. Those who would in terest themselves in the sale of property should first see that their "dam" plans are perfect, for he will avoid all "dam" lawsuits by simply leaving the "dam" nuisance en tirely alone. The river at this point, like this item, has too many "duns" in it, for Robiuxou. ami it will probably appear that the same thing will "dam" the progress of our town, as well as further reference to it by jour itemizer.

All honor and applause to the son of Texas. He lias resisted the temptations of home influence for Dallas is his home and the persuasions of lifelong associate, men who have permitted their interest in a low dollars by way of speculation to blind them to hoiioiable principles, lie has resisted all this and manfully and boldly taken fid. with tho right nnd morality.
