And Dreams of a Gold Mine on HoAdoo Creek. W. L. Parks, of Port Royal, Is wanted in district No. 10 with his indicator to prospect for coal oil and gold deposits. Wm. Rogers, near Woodford, is the man who believes he has made the discovery. An ex pert was through the country recent ly, tracing a coal oil stream and Mr. Rogers has found it oozing out in the bed of McAdoo creek, on his place, presenting evidences of a strong vein. The stones in the bottom of the creek are thoroughly saturated with coal oil, and when thrown in a fire they blaze like a pine-knoti Johnson Goostree has also discovered coal oil dripping from a bed of stone on the Oneal place, now owned by J. W. Pardue, and it is possible that there is plenty of coal oil or natural gas in that section of the county more likely natural gas.

Clarksville People Should Give .Them all the Assistanoe Possible. It should be the pride of every citi zen to render all assistance possible to the census enumerators now at work within the city limits. They have nearly completed their work, and there are many people who have not been enumerated, from the fact that the enumerators cannot find ihem. There is a class of men, both white and black, who come to town and get their meals at some of the private boarding houses, and it is difficult for the enumerators to find them. The figures that will go into the next census will exercise a potent influence over the destiny of the city uiey win do spread oroadcast over this and foreign countries. Every citizen in Clarksville should consti tute himself a committee of one to give what assistance he can to the enumerators. If you know any per son who lias not been counted, it is to your interest to call the attention of the enumerators to the fact. Clarksville should represent her wealth and population as nearly ac curate as possible. Any oversight on the part of the enumerators will re ceive prompt attention if reported. Johu Johnson, who has the enumeration of the Second. Third. Fourth and Sixth wards, is clearly of the opinion that there are several people who have not been counted. They belong to the clas mentioned above. Any information given him or the other enumerators will be gladly received.
