AVe luiu just received from the music p'iblibhine; house of the S. Dnunard's Sons Co., 151 Wabash Ave., Chicago, a copy of the "Silver 8on;.;s" a free silver son book for tlm campaign of 1S. The book contains solos, duets, mixed and male quartets, and is especially ar ranged for campaign clubs. It is not a cheap word edition, and is sold for the remarkably low price of 10 cents or S1.00 per dozen post paid. It now looks ns if the Democratic masse? of New York were thinking for themselves in this campaign. It is quite certain that they are not following their old-time leaders. Mr. Uryan has btated more than once that he was not depending up on the Democratic leaders to can y the election, but upon the "plain" people, and it begins to look as if the plain people were not going to disappoint him. Savannah (ua.) News. There is trouble in He-publican ranks over Henry Clay Evans' make up of the State executive commit tee. The Chattanooga statesman has so shaped the committee as to bo able to control its every action. As a result Republicans are kick ing all over the State. Hon. Cr. N.

Thus the dwellers of the Alpine Mountains thi.n w ho are not pro-fe.-Munal guides - prefer to climb down than up; ami the wtiter has known penjile of middle a ,'i and of nunc than average intelligence, who have grown up even wkhin the sound of the 1'ullnof Niagara, with out ever having M-en that great nat ural wonder which annually thou sands travel the world over togn.e upon, and in almost every locality thereareobjectsof interest of which the inhabitants of that locality have no adequate appreciation. One of these the writer thinks he is justifi ed in referring to is the Sulphur Springs of Benton County. I he Sulphur Springs arc situated 1 1 milcsfrotu Camden, lOmilesfrom Big Sandy, about three milieu from Tennessee Kiver and 1 miles from Ariadne (Point Mason), a regular business landing for all river boats; and all that is necessary to make them easily accessible is a line of railway connecting Camden with the Louisville and Nashville Hail road, a project which has already been spoken of as a probable ac complishment in the near future. The springs themselves are beauti fully situated amid most attractive natural surroundings. It is conceded that no purer or more health-giving sulphur water is to be found anywhere than con stantly Hows here. Side by side are two remarkably clear and cold springs of different strengths, and around them are numerous perpet ual springs of the purest of lime stone, freestone and sandstone va rieties. All these springs are situ ated at the foot of a prettily wooded range of hill;, shady and cool, to the south, and opposite, to the north, and distant not more than oOO yards are numerous tine pools, of various depths, which little attention would convert into the most delightful of swimming baths; and between the springs and these pools are lands of which perfect walks and play ground could easily be made. So far as the gifts of nature go, it would bo difficult to find a spot more perfectly fitted for a pleasure and health resort combined; and it is hard to understand why nothing has as yet been done to mako it more widely known and more avail able for the accommodation of vis itors. A constant Camden pilgrim assures the writer that this season alone not less than fifty or sixty vis itors expressed themselves as de sirous of remaining for a consider able portion of tho season were the necessary conveniences for com fortable living to bo found in the neighborhood. Tho work of providing these con veniences could be done at compar atively small expense. The drive way from the main road is pretty, and already in excellent order. At the end of this driveway, and upon the hillside south of the springs, is a perfect natural situation for tho erection of a summer hotel, or se ries of cottages, or both; and the springs, ground and baths in front would require, for their thorough preparation for guests, but a small outlay of labor and money. These, with the establishment of what would undoubtedly be a self-sustaining means of transportation from railways and river, would give what, from a financial standpoint, would, in the writer's opinion, bo a paying investment from the begin niiiL'. A visit would certainly repay the time and trouble to any one inter ested in the management of health resorts. This county would give the proprietor of such a resort at Sulphur Springs a liberal and con stant support, and a study of the surroundings would show that there is no reason why, with proper care for the comfort of visitors, there should not soon bo found here a re. sort, summer and winter, success. fully rivaling many another popular resort of the South. The writer trusts that this word of attention to one of the natural attractions of Benton County may not be altogether thrown away. William Creelman.
