Wo are in receipt of a card from Rev. T. F.

He will conduct devotional services at Shiloh next Sunday at 11 o'clock in the forenoon, at Cowells Chapel at 3 in tho afternoon, and at Camden at 7.30 Sunday evening. All are invited. The school at Benton Seminary opened last Monday under the most flattering prospects. The attend ance was about 115, and so great was the rush all the children could not be seated, and Professors Blair and Evans were compelled to dis miss them until Tuesday morning in order to provide for more seats, Tho attendance is being swelled daily, and tho children have settled down to study after several months of play and recreation, come to our midst. Attention is directed to the ad vertisement of Messrs. Stigall & Potts elsewhere in The Chuonicle. No business in Camden has grown more rapidly than that of Stigall & Potts, who have recently extend ed their business to iuclude dry goods, notions, boots, shoes and a large stock of general merchandise. They have a large stock, of grocer ies and hardware, all of which has been selected especially to meet the wants of tho people of this county, and at prices to Buit the times. A TELEPHONE LINE. Cauulrn, P.l Namly nnil llnlludxy Could bo Drawn Nearer TogHlmr. Big Sandy is anxious for tide phone connection with Camden, bo we are informed, and is ready Ui come down with her part of the "dust" whenever we make up our mind to meet her half way. This project has been discussed here before, but our citizens seem slow to take hold of it, and thus the matter htatuls. Camden, Big Sandy and Holladay could bo connected by telephone at a cost not exceeding -b"50, and this expenditure borne equally by the throe towns would be insignificant when compared with the benefits which would follow the completion of tho line. Tho amount could be raised by subscription, and a joint stock company could bo organized to manage the enterprise. The benefits resulting from such an enterprise would be shared in equally by the citizens of the three towns interested, and it is a very important question for us to con sider, as it W( uld save writing many ' letters and do away with tho great annoyance of waiting one to three days for an answer. We have a practical illustration of tho feasibility of the project near at home. Johnsonville, Hustburg, Box and riant have been connected by telephone, and the citizens of those towns can talk to each other with all ease. A subscription has already been started to connect -Waverly with Box, and the line will be extended to Bakersville and Buffalo. Tho question is, are the citizens of Camden interested to tho extent that they are willing to take stock in such an enterprise and assist in pushing it to completion. Let us not delay .the matter, but make it a popular, .movement by soliciting subscriptions from those who desire, to take stock. Suppose some of our progressive citizens take tho matter in hand, and after a sufficient amount has been sub scribed to, justify it a meeting can bo called to take some definite ac tion.
