It Ii thought by some, and with ap parently good causu, that tho Iron Mountain lloutc Is tu begin work ou the long cniilom.i'fttcd Hlckman-Chnr luston llnu soon. Somo years ngo the proposed lino was survoyed from Her son, a suinll station a few miles Kouth of hero, to a point just opposite Hick man, slnco which nothing has been done toward building It. Tho flint of tho year tho Iron Mountain began to ballast tho Uelmont Ilrauch, but for susio reason. Instead of beginning the work at the terminus, Uelmout, and coming north, tho lino was only bal lasted to Ilenson, tho Junction of tho Hickman survey with tho main line iVnothur pleco of circumstantial evi dence U tho map In tho latest folder of thu Xasavlllo, Chattanooga & St. Louis lty. A heavy dotted line ruus between Hickman and Charleston, marked "proposed extension." Thus It appears that tho long proposed line Is to bo built at last. Tho Importance of such nu oxton- slon to this city c&nnot bo estimated As reported lu railroad circles some tlmo ago, tho "UIxlo Flyer" would cumo via this city, giving us through service to Nashvlllo and unothor train to St. Louis; through connections for Memphis via Uyersburg Northern lty , and I. 0. property, which has ma terlal nt Tlptonvlllo, Tenn., to begin work on n Hlckmnn-Tlptonvlllo ex tension, to be started this fall or uqxt spring; besides this city would be the junction point for Hickman, ntcesslintlng tho building of a round house, and coal chuto mid tho employ ment of more muu In tho yards and Uspots.

TYPHOID AND THE FLY. Tho menace of the house fly as a transmitter of disease is demanding Uio attcnUon of tho health authorities of every city and calling for meas ures for its repression. Tho Wash ington Post, after commenting upon tho different sources to which infec Uous diseases may be traced, says "But after all of theso nosalblo sources of contamlnaUon have been admitted, It Is tho common house fly that Is probably tho most prolific causo of tho spread of typhoid. This pestiferous insect delights In all kinds of refuse matter, walks and wallow in it, and then visits the homes of tho city dwellers nnd walks over tho bread and butter and other foods carrying with him tho germs from cesspools and gutters and other slm liar breeding places of nil kinds of disease. To him must be charged tho transmission of this disease, which Is not easily contracted from Uio patient by nttondants or membora of tho family when ordinary precau Hons of cleanliness aro observed."
