Southern Methodist Church.
Tho pastor Rev. .1 W. \V.
Bhuler, has projected this now
enterprise since coining here in
October. One-half of Hie funds
for tho completion of thischurcli
are already secured, and its
erection is a col tu'nty .
I Tho ohurch is to ho built of
stone or pressed br'ok; very
likely of stone, and when com?
pleted will cost about $10,000.
The building w ill be modern in
all its appointments, ami will
include auditorium, separate
Sunday school claws rooms,
with Sunday school assembly
room, if desired, ladies parlor,
pastor's study, vestibules, chair
loft, with alcove for organ,
tlecending floor and circular
pews, cathedral art glass win?
dows, and other modern con?
veniences. The people are re?
sponding liberally to the call
for help on this enterprise.
The building committee is
composed of Messrs. I'. I''.
Blanion, Otis MoiiBer, ('. s.
Carter, .1. S. Hamiden, and .1.
11. Mathews, all successful
business men of the Gap.
Rev. Shuler has bail wide
experience in church building
and church cxtcntmn work, he
having taken the initiative or
promoted to completion the
building of some eight churches
previous to his coming to this
place, besides various church
improvements. The first church
built by him was ?Rascom." on
the Lebanon circuit, four miles
Southeast of the town of Leb?
anon, Va . which cost about
$1500. While on the Emory
circuit, in Washington,county,
he led the |.pie in the building
of three churches and remodel
illg of one. "New Lebanon," a
$1200 chapel, was built on the
Will Continue to Have Ten
Representatives in
Washington, 1). 0,, Feb. IG.?
Virginia will continue to have
ten congressman under tho
provisions of the apportionment
bill which passed the house
today. The Campbell bill re?
taining the present number and
members in the house of repre?
sentatives would have reduced
Virginia's representation by
one member, Tennessee's by
one, und North Carolina by tine,
while retaining tin: present
number in West Virginia.
The Crumpacker bill, which
was finally passed, retains the
present membership in each of
these States, except West Vir
ginia, and increases its repre?
sentation by one.
Congressman Austin, of Ten?
nessee, made an appeal in be?
half of Congressman Slenip,
saying that Mr Slenip and his
father had worked for years to
make their district Republican
and that he should not now be
thrown out of the bouse. He
asserted that the Republicans
would have to make their gains
in the border States in the
future if they were to gain at
nil ami that to cut down the
representation of these border
States in Congress ami in the
electoral college would be bail
policy for the Republicans.
The bill was passed by Demo
cratic and Republican votes. It
takes effect March 4, 1013, so
that tho next congress elected
will be under its provisions.

through Tnzowoll, Hla'nd,

already niacadainized or in

Why do you not call the
people of these counties togoth
?T ami inaugurate a movement
for the completion of tin- road
to Kounokc, and make a eon
tinuous highway from Middles
boro, Ky.. to your city? This
would make one of the most
beautiful highways in the
whole country as well as a very
serviceable one.
The people of Bell, Knbx,
Laurel ami Itockonstle counties
in K?steln Kentucky are
seriously discussing the build
ing of a like road from M iddles
iboro through these counties to
connect with the blue grnsH
pikes in Central Kentucky.
This road would be less than
one hundred miles in length.
The completion of both of the
mads above referred to would
permit automobile travel from

which will eventually bo built?
