I can hare no doubts as to the virtue of 1'astor
Kocuig'n Nervo Tonic, for I have recommended

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
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.
