A Huntingdon special of Inst Saturday to tho Nashville Banner bays: Considerable excitement prevail.- in the neighborhood of the farm of Y. 11. ricketl, two miles south of town, on the Purdy road, and also in this city, over the reported dis covery of oil on the farm of Mr. Pickett. Tuesday a man drove up to Mr. Pickett's housu and asked permission to inspect his land. The man was ft stranger and insist ed upon going alone. Permission was given and tin) stranger went directly to a meadow, where Mr. Pickett had some time ago dug a well and had to abandon it on ac count of its peculiar odor and the oiTcnsivenees of the water. The stranger was absent about an hour and upon his return told Mr. Pick ett that ho was an agent of the Standard Oil Company, lie would give no further information and drove away. The discovery of oil near Jackson gives col u' to the re ported find in this county and an investigation will be made at once. A peculiar fact in connection with this is that a direct line from the oil fields in Ohio to the newly dis covered oil wells at Beaumont, Tesas, passes through Carroll County in this vicinity, which would indicate that this line is the course of an immense vein of oil. their atlonii'v-i cntno before tho committees r:i railroad nuorneyH, and not, as k.bbv b,t?i. If any rail road in the Slate spent ft dollar to inlltienco legislation, or employed any other than their regular attor ney h, no evidence of the fact waft developed by either of the investi gating commit Ices. Fortunately for the State preju dice against railroads is rapidly dy ing out since the roads have slop ped the employment of prof of .eemil lobbyists and rely entirely -opo'z tho intelligence and fairness of the people and their representatives. The people are not afraid of the man who comes openly before a commitleo and pleads a cause upon its merits, but they have a right to fear tho lobbyist who interviews representatives privately and alone.

Wilkinson, of tho Illinois Central Kail road, tells tho following snake story, aud most people, knowing tho natural mod esty of tho captain, will except it without the proverbial graiu of salt, lie said: "A friend of mine found a "large rattle-snake one day with a heavy rock lying upon its tail. lie did not kill the reptile, but released it, and was surprised to see the snake follow him. It went home with him, ate from his hand, and at night, in gratitude, would coil upon his feet and act as guard. On one occasion late at night he heard an unusual noise in his room, and upon striking a light found that -the snake had coiled around the leg of a burglar, and had its tail out at the window rattling for the police." We -will state for the benefit of those not go well acquainted with the captain, that he is not in the habit of "seeing snake?,," and his veracity is unquestioned.

Many newspapers profess sur prise at the prejudice sometimes shown in Tennessee against the railroads and kindred corporations, but when it was shown in a recent bribery investigation in Nashville that' the railroads used lobbyists and were expected to pay notes for members of the legislature so as to get a string on them, there is small wonder to the average man that there is not stronger feeling against such corporations who use corrupt means to effect legislation. Let the railroads keep out of politics and all feelings will die. Paris Press. If the Press had wanted to be perfectly fair it should have stated that a professional lobbyist who was not employed by the railroads went to them and asked for money :,to get a string" on Senator Eldridge, and the representative of the road declined to put up the money or have anything to do with the mat ter.
