Corinth is to have another Hotel, not a $10,000 brick cut, as has been pub lished, but a hanasome and commodi ous "veneered" building, containing about thirty-five rooms, aud to cost about $3,000. R. P. Barnhill has let the contract for the same and work of construction will soon begin. It will be located on the corner south of the Methodist church, and the graine residence that now stands theyè will be rolled further down the block. Raise the Devil No More. , I An ordinance has been passed 1 by the city council prohibiting the ringing of church bells between tfi'ff hours of 9 p. m. and 5 a. m. The negroes have been in the habit of ringing bells before daylight Sunday mot'ning to call their church flock to a pi-iyer meeting and it has become a source of much annoy* ance to the people. Hereafter bells at night will be allowed to ring only as a fire alarm. Road Making Machine. Street Commissioner T. A. Burgess has received his road-making machine and will soon be demonstrating its utility and practicability on the streets of the city. These machines are good things aud are used in most up-to-date towns and districts, and it is safe to say that under Mi\ Burgess' practical operations its goçd work will soon be manifest in Corinth. C. R. Davis has been "on the road" for severyl days taking orders for goods from merchants of neighboring towns. do an immense jobbing business and sell more goods than . any concern in North Mississippi, and, few houses iff the State surpass them ;in the ameunt of goods handled. : The people * n the ^ffeiiiity of Pleas ant Hill ctyirfch, near Damon, will give tee eream supper on Friday night, ',17th inst., at the churcfy, the proceeds logo toward the repair ot the build ing; His house, Ahe Rubel & Co., indeed, hut an Electric Lights. At the meeting of the city council Monday night the subject of electric lights was discussed. The ordinance granting the franchise for the use of the streets, etc., being void by limita tion, a new and similar ordinance was re-enated. This ordinance gives to the electric company, composed of \V. T. Adams and J. W. Taylor, the use of the streets for their for twenty-five years, but the franchise is not exclu sive. Iu the matter of arc lights for the business section to be paid for by the city, the board has under consider ation the schedule of rates and a spec ial meeting will be held tonight to de cide the question. One of the propo sitions is for a "moonlight service," the city to take five lights. It is esti mated that under this scheme the ser vice would cost about $425 a year, as many as ten lights werehvanted the cost would be about $730 a year. If Thanks to Frof Boydston.

They Are Warm Members. The fall edition of the NI t. Mariait Thirty Y'ear Revival has set in in dead earnest. The nights are more pleas ant now.tuad the santified sisters can shout and "bless my Jesus" in all their strength and zeal. Tuesday night was a paralyzer. About fifty were shout ing at one and the same time and all seemed to have glory in their souls. It seemed to be a glorious outpouring of the spirit—of the devil, and there were many penitents. They saved souls that night until about 11 o'clock, much to the pleasure df numerous tir ed and sleepy residents in that blessed and favored portion of town. There are several fetek persons in that neigh borhood who are nightly refreshed by these outbursts of religious enthusi asm. Along toward the midnight hour they sh6ut and laugh their way home. Along the route Tuesday night the pepple were overjoyed at the fervid manifestations of the workings of the spirit. Religion was in the air, and one, consecrated sister could be heard above the din: "Go way an' let me Tone; I'se giad I'se born to die. Bless my Jesus!" The meeting will proba bly continue until frost or the police interferes. As a shout-bister the par son in charge has no superior. The Town Cow. A partial prohibitive ordinance has been passed against tie town cow. The law applies to the cow that makes it her business to roam the business portion of town, raiding,farmers' wag« ons and doing mischief generally iff the business district. Any cow caught violating this ordinahee will be held until a $1 fine is paid by the oyiner. It is a wise and timely ordinance and will meet with the hearty approval of every farmer who visits Corinth. Some Mormon elders have been op erating in and arolind Corinth recent ly. In some portions of the State they are so numerous and so bold in disseminating their doctrines as to cause trouble, and frequently they are rfin out of communities. They are a cheap class of people aDd exert a per nicious influence, and they always op érât^ especially aanong the most igno rant and benighted classes. If they would carry awiay with them all their converts it woqld be a "good riddance of bad rubbish." Already some cotton is being receiv ed at the compress, and that concern will soon be in active operation, calculation tit is season is that Corinth ,000 bales The will receive not less than of cotton, which will place Corinth among the , important towns in the State.
