A Chattanooga paper nays: "The
great car works of the Tinted States
Rolling Stock Company, and the shops
of the louiNville ik Nashville railroad,
arc in themselves works of sullicient
magnitude to make a prosperous city,
but added to these there are, besides,
the blast furnace, the large oak tannery
institution, car wheel works, horse shoe
nail works, four ot Ave largo wood-working
establishments, the large foundry
nnd machine shop of Iveus & Sou and
other industries of considerable propor
tions. I vens ivSou have one of the best
equipped shops in the country, and their
manufacture of engines, cotton presses,
etc., rtnils n ready sale in all parts of
America, and will make the establish.
incut one of the most important in that
line in this country.
Dcpitur's railroad facilities, water
transportation, nnd juxtaposition to limitless
flelils of lion ore, coal nnd timber,
make Its industrial prosperity unquestioned,
and it is certainly destined to become
a great city. The Decatur ljiud
company, under the intelligent and efficient
management of Mr. llreck Jones,
by its liberal course and prudent, busi
ness-like conduct, is converting what
was two yeais ago a feitile farm into a
bustling, throbbing city, and the next ll
months will witness a wonderful growth.
A gang of men were at work near
Johnstown, about the 1st of August removing
debris. Soon they came upon a
pile of logs in the shape of a cone nt
least a dozen feet high. The logs weru
in such n symmetrical shape that it looked
as though they were put together by
human hands. Tlio cone was hollow
nnd ns the men proceeded with their
woik they detected a smell which suggested
thnt there was a dead animal
closo at hand. Log after log was removed
when, to their amazement, they beheld
a mastiir dog. fho animal wagged
his tall and whined when he saw the
men, and seemed glad at the prospect of
being liberated from his prison. In another
potion of tlio cone-shaped cell was
tlio carcass of a cow. lly some freak of
the rushing waters the dog andcow were
caught in this pen Juno '-', the cow being
crushed in the jam of logs. The canine
was sleek and fat when liberated, und
looked none tho worso for his two
months' imprisoumont.

Palestine is perhaps tho best known
country of its si.e on the face of the
earth. It is only I i miles from Jerusalem
to the Jordou und it is .'M miles from
Jerusalem to the sea. Palestine, nil told,
is no bigger than a Texas county, and if
it had railroads you could cross it in an
hour. It is not more than three times
as long as it is broad and tho distance
and numbers which are so large in Scriptures
aro very small when viewed with
the naked eye. Rethlohctn is, in reality,
about seven miles from Jerusalem, and
it cannot bo moio than two miles from
the site of Solomon's Temple to tho top
of Mount Olives. Tlio valley of

The case of Kates for cutting Warren
was called in the police court Saturday
and continued until next Saturday. Mr.
Warren is impioviug rapidly. The IKUh
school district, over which this trouble
came up, has two factious, each claiming
they are right and all hinges on the legal
lines of the district, and the decision
of the courts will be required to settle
the legality or illegality of the school
tax. Neither party will consent that
the other Is right and it seems that our
Superintendent of common schools halts
on a decision about the boundaries and
hears one side of the story nnd concludes
thnt side is right; then when the other
side is told reverses tho decision. Tlio
records must bo deficient regarding
these lines from some cause or this
trouble could bo stopped bysimplo reference
to the record. It is claimed that
one trustee who levied the tax is a non
resident of the district. The other side
clniiiiB that he is n resident.
