Johneon City Choral.
Tho Johnson City Choral compofod
of about twenty five mixed voices at
present, held their regular weekly
meeting last Monday night at the
Presbyterian church. The society
has secured tho services of Prof. Le
Claire as director and has taken up
the study of a high order of music,
with the view to giving one or several
entertainments during tho winter.
The lit of members may be found
at Lyle, Mickey & Co.'s Bhoe store,
and lhn gentlemen are earnestly re
quested to examine it and sec that all
the ladies have company for every
meeting. The absence of even a part
of the female voices s a serious de
partment, and it is hoped that the
male members will not merit the re
flection of having contributed to it.
In this connection tho secretary
begs to state that not all the iniii tion
fees have yet boen paid in. A.s monoy
has been paid in. As money has been
advanced to meet what expenccs have
alread been incurred, prompt settle
ment is requasted. The next meet
ing will be held at the Presbyterian
chnrch Monday evening Isov. 10, at
7:30 sharp. Everybody turn out.

hood of Mountain Ci'y to put Toylor'6
friends on their guard. Michaels was
in a barn and overheard two men
plotting with a third party to kill Alf.
Taylor at Bristol or Johnson City.
Filty dollars was paid in advance, and
as soon as Taylor was killed four hun
dred and fifty more would be given.
A number of Alf's friends went to
Bristol Saturday night to tell him
and act as body guard, but for wne
reason no violence was attempted.
