Alverson, formerly of this place, who was arrested a week or two ago for stealing money from tho contribution box of tho Walnut street Metho dist church in Louisville, has been indicted for grand larceny by tho grand jury of the Jetlorson circuit court.

Tnon cimo uuottier layer of rocks and cement, till tho entire 12 feet had been tilled. It Is a splendidly put-up building and well worth one's time to go through it. Sunday was a propitious day and 1 took advantage of it by going overs good portion of til's city. Not, however, till I had worshipped at least once. Sunday it a great day for tho cooped-up town people to go to tho country and all cars leading toward broad fields, pine groves or green pastures are generally loaded down with them. You can get a ride for a nickel on most any of the lines and a largo number of those who cannot allord thu luxury of a carnage spend their Sunday afternoons on tho street cars. Tho Juwa here are splendid patrons of the street car lines, in fact n class of theui hardly ever ride any other way. I went out to Bolton, seven miles distant, whom tho Western b Atlantic It. It. crosses tho Ohattihooehue river, and spent tho hour very pleasantly. This is the point from which water will be taken to supply Atlanta. Bolton, although far out iu tho country, is reached by nn electric car for tho small sum of 10 cents. This line was built by a company, which expected Atlanta would extend far out iu that direction. It is doing so to some extent, but not ns fist as it in tho north and northeasterly portions. About midway between Atlanta and Bolton Home enterprising man has built a cemetery on tho top and sides of a large, high lull. It In nil platted on" and lots are being sold right along. Ho bus dedicated it Hollywood, after tho largo cemetery at Richmond, Va. Why the hill was selected it is not known, savo that tlio originator of of tho enterprise wautod the occupants of the city of the dead to be. ns near as possible to tho land where "the wicked cease from troubling and thu weary are at rest." Bolton, although a very small place, has a largo brewery, an immense ice plant, a broom factory and several largo brick-making establishments, and is quite a manufacturing centre. All of her manufactures are not sold iu or even in Georgia, but on tho contrary, they are found iu lintiy of tho Southern cities. Atlanta is a splendidly lighted town, both electricity and gas being used to prevent tho people from groping in tho darkness. The electric system is that of the Thompson-Houston Co., tho same as used nt Stanford, and the beet in the country. Notwithstanding these modern appliances for light, a great deal of coal oil and a good many candles aru sold, tho poorer class being tho principal purchasers. There is a train on thu Central, of Georgia, running betweeu this point and Savannah, called the Nancy Hanks, be cause of the rapid time it makes. It goes the distance 290 miles in a littlo less than six hours, which is pretty good time for a Southern road. To a Kentuckian it looks rather strange to see soda water fountains in full play at this timo of the year, but the many elegant ones here seem to be doing good business, notwithstanding the cold season. Ice cream soda is sold every day in the year, as are other cold drinks. a uerviue is a very popular drink and an immense quantity is Bold. It is a great deal ot trouble to get good dniry butter here and a majority of Atlanta's citizens are using Armour's coin- splendid substitute. It lays the oleomargarine stud' In the shade and is much better than the average butter sold in the grocery stores Thero is a license of SIS per year to sell it, tlioimh, and n great many of tlio merchants don't handle it because of that severe tax. Condensed milk and evaporated cream are also used for cream for the colleo and in many cases for ico cream, and as there is very little milk drunk here, the cow is almost entirely dispensed with. A bowling-house where milk for drinking purposes is furnished would be about as burl to And in Atlanta ns a snow-ball in the Plutonian leuioiis. K. 0. W. Some Pertinent Suggestions From the Common School Superintendent. Ti the Kdltot ol thu Interior Journal. With your permission 1 should like to occupy a little space in your valuable pa-1 per, with a few suggestions to trustees mid teachers of the common schools of our countv. It will not be lone: till tho former should he making diligent inquiry us to who will 1)4 bf.st suited to tench the aomiiig term in your respective districts. Not whether or not tho applicant needs tho school; or whether it would Iw convenient for Haiti applicant to teach the N'hool, not that you can git so and w .to teach for tho public money, or perhaps add n month or to to the legal term; but it will soon be tune for you to that the wrvtoen of one can be be-cured who is not only provided with a certificate from the county board of examiners, but who is iu possession of those quallllcatior.s that will fit him to impart to others tlioto things which may bo of importance to bo taught; one who is capable of properly managing a schorl with as littlo friction Hi possible under even adverse circumstances. If the revised school law, which has passed the Senate, becomes a fixture (and 1 think it should), there will be ample time after the tlrst examination ol applicants for certifitctes, which will bu in June, iu lieu of July, as the law now is, for all contracts to be made betweeu trustees and teacher. Then Hg..n, by so doing all tin pleas tut embarrassment on tho part of thu teacher who fills to secure a proper certificate will bo avoided. As to the teachers of Lincoln county, I ntn glad to be able to say that they ure, as a rule, taking more genuine interest in school work that comes tinder their immediate control than was the case n few years ago. .Many are taking advantage of tho vacation by attending some good normal school. Otheis ure taking a reg ular five-mouths' course iu homo good aeudeiuy or college. It is well. Tho teacher who expects to bo n Hiiccest must not stop at tho expiration of tliu term for which ho has been employed; neither need one expect to teach a successful school by teaching thosu things only that are found iu tho common school curriculum, but should be iblo to give thu pupils entrusted to his care an amplu fund of general information. Tho child can no longer atlord to Do kjpt in iguorunco of the rapid advancement that is being made in this day and generation iu almost all branches of Industry, literature, arts and sciences, political economy and in fact nil that goes to uiuko man or woman practical as well as theoretical in this life. I trust that the time has come when trustees as well as teachers will consider the Interests of tho children over whom they may have control, of far greater importance than individual preference or favoritism. Iu my honest opinion the future great ness of our country depends largely upon the proper conduct of tho common school system, for through that channel of education only can the masses bo reached. Then if this government of ours, which is the pride ot every American heart, is still to maintain its freo institutions, is to have its governmental administrated by those who are and will bo chosen by the people to administer the allairs of government, wo must guard with jealous care our common school system, remembering that to thu poor as well as to the rich the doors of our public school buildings are opened and all are invited to enter without money and without price. Let us all remember the old adage that "There is no excellence without labor." And again, remember that it is the duty of all trustees to create us far as possible in their respective districts a seutiment among the peoplu, so that they will willingly conincido with you in supplementing the public fuuds sufliciently so as to equip each school building with such necessities as will enable both teacher and trustee to got thu most good from a little judicious outlay of funds iu the name of tho districts.
