We believe in home rule, also in the faithful support of home indus tries, which leads us to remark that the brand of flour known as the "Pride of Sequacliee" is a fine, high grade of flour, and good enough for anyone. We know what we are talking about. We are using the flour from the Jasper mill right a long and like it very much. Thanks. The News is delighted to receive bv every mail from Woburn, papers reporting the celebration of the fit" i eth anniversary of the ordination of our kind friend, Rev. John. Qualey, of that place.

Did you know our job work was the best and most for the mouey? Try us and see. We hear from Dayton, Tenn., that the family of Henry Kent will shortly return here.

M. in his absence. Mr. B, L. Francis, in his own words, arrived at Atoka, '-right side up," and will now devote his atten tion to instructing the Indians. F. J. Cheney and & Co., have concluded it would be a wise thing to advertise in The News. They know a go id thing when they see it. The work of preparation for busi is still going on at the saw and plan ing mill. We expect Messrw. Gabel and Brown will be ready in the next paper to advertise, their business. Mr. J. M. Curnutt called on us Tuesday. He has left Rising Fawn owing to the shutting down of the furnace and now contemplates a trip to Arizona. Thanks to Mr. C. II. Davidson, we got some coal. A friend in need is a friend indeed. As it was this she bang was about ready to shut up shop for the want of a lire. ,And still these mountains are full of coal. We are glad to kn ow that Gabej & Brown have arranged to get timber from the Town Co., on and near the town site, for manufacture here. Now we hope they will push work so as to get their product on the market and do the place some good. Mr. 11. tt. late, who assumes charge of our schools next Monday, was in towu Tuesday.

Music was 1 .M I j. - I in oruer unui a laie nour. Mr. Will Harris was in Sequachee Sunday and lingered quite a while at the gate, and it so cold that Mr. Haynes may look out soon. Maj.

Gabel is now engaged in overhauling the big planer at the saw miil. Three set screws in the shifting attachment were broken off, necessitating a long and tedious job. Mi. M. C.

Austin Coppinger the mighty hun ter got five coons one night last week and it wasn't an extra night for coons either.

Three more cars of walnut lumber went through here Monday from the upper Valley. The Valve Works last Saturday cast repairs for the big 5-inch valve belonging to the Roane Iron Co., Rockwood, Tenn. We thought ourselv es secure for some coal from Whitwell by team, but it is hardly likely that the roads will permit any hauling before May. The postmaster and one of bis farm hands was busy Friday last con structing a crossing through the sea of mud- which surrounds the post office. There is quite a movement in wal nut lumber now and parties are in quiring for it in this section. Two car loads were shipped from Let, Bledson Co., last weQk, to Liverpool, Eng., by way of Port Royal. Mr. Jess Coppinger is again under the weather, we hear. This time it is not rheumatism. He heard of a trade in cattle and ccrn the other day, and rolled ovor the ground in such terrific convulsions of laughter, that up to the present tima it has tak en one half bairel of salve to make him feel comfortable. We sympa thize with him very much and wish his speedy recovery, but at the same time counsel him not to laugh that way again. Valves Shipped. Gustafson Bros., shipped on this morning's express, 1-4 dozen 1 inch Balauced Plain Eccentric-Lever Val ves to the Roane Iron Co., Rock wood, Tenn. This is thw same firm to whom the large casting for the 5 inch Throttle-valve was sent a few days ago. This Throttle-valve has now been in use a little ovei a year and a half in the most exacting ser vice where all other valves previously used failed to give satisfaction. The additional fact that more or less new valves are being ordered, when once introduced, speak well for the merits of the Gustafson Bros.' Valve. They claim that none others will be used wherever the new balanced Quick action valve has been given a trial, as they possess superior merits that cannot fail to be appreciated by practical engineers.
