St. Edwards College, Austin, Tex., A;'i! 22, 1802. I can hare no doubts as to the virtue of 1'astor Kocuig'n Nervo Tonic, for I have recommended 1U use where persons are a&lk-ted with diseases of the nervous system and la every case th result was bucIi that my own confidence in thi medicine was confirmed and its good name spread in the respective locality.

Good Road Material. Journeying from Sequachee to Whitwell some time since the fact was strongly impressed on our minds that the public roads should be made better, and the Road Commissioner can have no excuse for want of good material. A portion of the road in Victoria between the church and de pot has had a good top dressing of coke refuse, at Capt. Frater's own expense we are told. A piece of road this side of Whitwell has also had some' applied. Now why cannot this be continued within a couple of miles of each town and rounded up so that water will run off. It is a good thing for a road and as it only costs the hauling, we can not under stand why it is not used. A Change in the Faculty. The Rev. J. It. Hunter, who dur ing the past scholastic year was a member of the faculty of the Van derbilt Preparatory School, has ac cept the principalship of the Pryor Institute at Jasper, Tenn. We are very sorry to have Mr. Hunter leave Bridgeport. He is a gentleman ot culture and scholarship and of rare capacity as an educator. His re moval will be a severe loss to the school here and Bridgeport loses a family most highly esteemed in her social circles. We hope the change will be of mutual advantage to Mr. Hunter and to the Pryor Institute over which he will preside. Bridgeport News. Bought the First Bos. Mr. C. II. Pearson bought the first basket of Niagara grapes ever raised and packed for shipment. They were beautiful grapes as "ye editor" can testify large, heavy clusters, crowded with delicious fruit. The Niagara resembles the Malaga in color, but the skin is thin ner, and the grape sweeter. It is the best grape for raising in this sec tion of the country and successfully withstands all the plagues to which grapes are inclined. We congratu late Mr. Pearson on securing the first box of grapes, representing an industry which we think would be the best for the place fruit raising for the markets. Says the South Pittsburg States man: "W. H. Burges called at our office last Saturday. He had just returned from theludian Territory where he had lee to see his two brothers.
