Bob's "10,000" Hotel.
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
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.

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.

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
will receive not less than
of cotton, which will place Corinth
among the , important towns in the
State. Those interested in the cotton
business here are wide-awake, pro
gressive business men and possess all
th'ç" capital needed to make business
