This Is good weather to get land
ready for wheat sowing. The price
Is not likely to get much , lower for
several years than it . is at present,
and if the land is properly handled
and fertilized it will pay to raise
wheat in Warren county. It will
pay better to put in ten acres well,
than twenty acres half . way put in
and not fertilized. , ,, rv .,

It is astonishing how much new
life a lew Tennesseans can throw into
a town in a short time. Messrs. Will
II. Magness, Jr., and Jas. S. Doyle,
of this place, only took charge of the
bank of Attalla, Ala., about two
weeks ago, and we notice from our
Birmingham exchanges that the
Mayor of Attalla has already issued
a proclamation extending the corpo
rate limits of the place so as to include
Gadsden and one or two other towns,
several iron furnaces, and about 30
miles of railroad track. If our boys
would call down a few reinforcements,

"Sifting Matkimony," by au
thor of "Society Rapids," published
by T. B. Peterson & Brothers, Phila
delphia, is a highly pleasing and
readable society novel, with the
scene laid by turns in New York,
Washington and the South, and is-
sued at the low price of twenty-five
cents a copy. The heroine is Paul
ine Berneer, the daughter of a Con
gressman, and the hero, Graham
Graie, a cynical New Yorker, with a
mystery hanging over his life. Both
the personages are opposed to matri
mony, and their spirited arguments
form much of the interest of the book.
Eventually, however, Graie falls in
love with Miss Berneer.and expresses
his passion in the most decided man
ner. The pictures of New York so
ciety are accurately drawn, though
to a considerable extent tinged with
keen satire. It will be found for
sale by booksellere or copies of it
will be sent per mail, on remitting
tho rrice, 25 cents, to the Publishers.
