A Huntingdon special of Inst
Saturday to tho Nashville Banner
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.

road in the Slate spent ft dollar to

developed by either of the investi

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

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.

T. J. DODD,
State Treasurer Folk has receiv
ed all of the New York exchange
for which he made requisition cr.
banks over the Slate and with
which he will pay for the J?1G3,G00
of State bonds purchased a few
days since. 'These bonds arrived
to-day. This purchase makes the
aggregate of bands bought by the
Slate in tho last sixteen mouths
!?317,-00. All the purchases were
made with the sinking fund except
150,000, which was taken from the
general fund under the amended
law, the operation under this
amendment of taking and selling
surplus from the general fund at
any time in this last purchase saves
the State interest on the bonds pur
chased for eight months, as under
the old law. The surplus in the
general fund passed into the sink
ing fund only at tho close of a year,
and the purchase would not have
been made until next January.

Capt. P. 13. 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. Ask .him
about the story, he relates it on all
occasions with more than pleasure.

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
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. "When bills were proposed
