Dunlap lias at last secured a handle factory. The Tribune has leased Dun lap's chums fur a plant of this kind for a number of years and at last we feel that our efforts have been rewarded. , It. W. Cordell, of this place, and Judge ltolfecker of Wilming ton, Del., together with a number of other gen tlcmt n, are interested in the enter prise. The stockholders are thorough business men and that insures the suc cess of the project from tho word go. The plant will be located to the left of the railroad in North Dunlap. To the rear of the factory building the railroad will build a branch road for the use of the plant. We understand Mr. Cordell and oth ers are in market selecting machinos. iUD Itimsb II tic u luva 1UI llianiu u u wo, spokes and handles of all kinds will be put in and competent men put in charge. That done nothing remains but to secure the timber. Timber we have all about us in the greatest abun dance.

Dynamiters Secure a Rich Haul of Fish In Little Sequachee River. Austin Coppinger has long been an ardent fisherman and since effort has been made by the Government to stock Little Sequachee River with, fish, has been very watchful that no dynamite was used in his vicinity. In spite of this all tho holes in the river with the exception of the Otter. Hole have been steadily dynamited and cleared of fish. Monday, July 2'Jnd, he says, that as he was eating dinner at his house some members of his family fancied they beard shots and later wb,en Sam Curtis, Ed Curtis and V. H. Tate went to go bathing they heard splashing in the river above them and going up found Chas. liaker of Chattanooga, James Griffith and John Lewis, better known as "Granny" Lewis, of Jasper, gather ing fish, who asked the boys to dive for the fish which Avere supposed to be on the bottom. About twenty-five pounds of fish were taken and the banks of the bole are lined with dead fish which have swollen and come to tho surface. Austin ia justly indignant at this rank violation of the law and as he has repeatedly said he would get the full penalty of the law on the parties who would dynamite the Otter Hole, has concluded that be has a strong case and summoned the sheriff accordingly. The penalty for dynamiting a river or pond is &50 fine. To enforce the law is the only way to keep fish in the riv er. NIXON'S NEW POSITION. Has Taken Charge of Works Near Cross ville.

W. White, son of Uob- I . i ti t X. uite, deceased, wtio was a scout for the Union Army, gives us pome iateresting data in connection with the famous raid of Gen. Wheel er, lie says that at Burnett's school house and on his father's farm he has picked up bolts and other parts of the train destroyed. At McLean's Ford where the ammunition train was destroyed, which is about four four miles further up, he says that the remnants of ammunition in the shape of parts of bullets can be found there to-day. An episode in con nection with the destruction of sup ply train is that Mr. White, his fa ther, managed to secure a bag of ,t from lhe imrning train an(J 8alt was very valuable then. Still more interesting he tells us his father has told him repeatedly that he as a scout warned Gen. Rosecrans, which warning if heeded would have saved bis train. The following letter from Mr. W hite is self-explanatory. "After my return from Jasper I on suited my mother in regard to Wheel er's cavalry raid in Sequachee Valley. She says Wheeler's men did no shoot ing at my father at the time, and that he procurred that bag of salt from the wagon train, and made his lucky escape for refuge to the side of Walden's Ridge, a distance of about 400 yard's from where the ammunition wagons were burned. In my statement to you about the ford I was mistaken but after reflecting and consulting my mother who lived at the Longly ford at the time of the sur render, and it was at tho Longly ford instead of tho McLean. There are two fords in that section of country, the Longly and the McLean. They are on ly about a u.ilo and a half apart and therefore I got confused about them. I have picked up particles of lead and burstod shell and cartridge balls there years ago and others can now be found there. All the other statements I gave are correct. At that time my father lived on Wald en's Ridge on the old Haley Road in Hamilton County near the Suck, and had been sent to this valley on a scout by Gen. Rosccrans. Father afterwards bought a farm on Looney' Creek of Johu G. Kelley, ,our present county judge and moved to this valley, but he afterward sold it to John Hudson.- While living there he had some trou ble with bush whackers and narrowly escaped death. Ho afterwards moved to the Longly Ford and was there when he was mustered out of service of the I'. S. at Nashville. Sometiroo after he was mustered out of the service he pur chased of P. H. Grayson a farm at Bur nett's school house, in this county and moved on it and was living there at the time of his death, Sept. 24th, 18U5. On this farm at llurnett's school house four miles south of the Longly Ford, Wheeler burnt a wagon and 2-horse hack up. When I wasa little boy have oflen heard my father say that ho told Gen. Uosecrans that Wheeler would dostroy his train for him in this valley. Had Uosecrans listened in time to my father and Bent aid Wheeler would never have destroyed bis train I am pleased to make tho above cor rection to my mistake as I want nothing but facts to appear.

A trip which had long been in contemplation came off Sunday when Misses Annie Scott, Lydia Guatafson, Pauline Milbrandt and Louise Hill and Messrs. Charles Kelly and W. C. Hill went to that romantic point on the breezy heights of old Cumber land, known as Lover's Leap. A much larger crowd was to have gone but various objections arose and at one time it seemed as though the trip would have to be postponed. IT - 1 1 ! .

J T I uuck. over our une oi route ana ais cern Inman mountain proudly lifting its head over the intervening swells, dark with pine. The atmosphere was misty and hence the North Car olina mountains, sometimes visible from this point, could not be discern ed. There is nothing tenderer and more beautiful in color than distant mountains seen on a clear day. Then they appear at their greatest advan tage, clear of outline and of most etherial blue. Various incidents happened en route to give hilarity to the occasion. For instance when a weary mule drops down in the hot sand of the road to take a pleasant roll, the scene may be described variously. It is decidedly pleasant to the mule, counting out the whacks it gets from its discomfited rider to whom the situation is not the most enlivening, and immensely funny to those of the party who owing to their remoteness from the scene are unable to give assistance and are obliged to re main spectators of the comedy. And then, too, it is rather distressing to see a lady ride up to a bush, drive her animal under it and gee if she can't uproot it by pushing up the biggest limb she can find. This feat has never been successfully done yet and has always resulted disas trously for the equestrienne. In this case the lady was pressed down un til she assumed a horizontal position in the saddle something in the style of a circus rider. Fortunately the animal she was riding remained still or otherwise she would have been dragged off. And then, too, when a wasp gets after a horse that is notor iously inclined to break his bridle the situation is again lively. But the gravest situation of all is when the ladies form an inquiring circle and prod the sore back of a mule that could possibly kick the nails out of the top board of a barn door. Horses and mules are usually trained to drive with a tight rein downhill, wearing blinders. Let ns suppose that it has been taught to pro ceed like a race horse with a tight rein, and that you harness it without blinders into a buggy that is destitute of brake, start down one of those precipitous slopes common in travel ing in the mountains, when first wheel and then the other is somewheres between 4." degrees and 90 degrees, and you guide the animal with a looe rein, expecting to pitch head long every moment, and you admon idh it in tearful, soulful, energetic and passionate tones to go easy and every time you unconsciously tight en on the reins in an endeavor to maintain your own equilibrium the animal starts an extra cog in his perambulating apparatus, then is the time to think ot all your sins and sigh for a balloon. Arriving at the Falls, sparkling in the morning light, the wide chasm yawning in its open mouthed majes ty, the encircling cliffs mute in their radiant beauty of grey crag and towering spruce, the deep pool re mote below, and the wooded cove winding off in the background, serv ed to attract the attention of the tourists for some moments.

The recesses of the L.. 0vw,i o,i OOMi.l e obiect(. in waterworn wood collected as souvenirs. The artist meanwhile secured two good sketch es of the cliffs looking up from be low the fall. An ascent was then made to the top and some went to the massive ledge from which the water pours into the basin below, and soon after the baskets were packed up, the an imals harnessd and saddled and the party started on the return home. Before leaving, however, they call ed at the home of Robert Foster to see the pictures painted by his fath er and now adorning the walls of the house, just as he placed them quite a number of years ago. Mrs. Bohr and children, of Nashville, are visiting her mother, Mrs. Chas. Foster, and with the addition of Mr. Price's family, the tourists found a large delegation ready to receive them. Hospitality was expressed i every countenance, and Mrs. Chas. Foster, whose memory of faces is re markable, was very urgent that the party should come to see them as well as the Falls. There were child ren of all ages and sizes and it seems that Foster's Falls is a perfect paradise for children ot younger as well as those of older growth. Amid a shower of wrell wishes the party drove off, urged by the omin ous gathering of another thunder storm which boded evil augury in the distance. Happily this danger did not materialize.' Tbe return was made under pleasant circumstances, the experiences of the day affording much fuud for merriment. Arriving at Point Majestic, that noble elevation everlooking Saw Mill and Little Sequachee Cove, supper was spread, after which the remnants of the feast were offered to the divinities of the mountain, by being hurled over the cliff. The eggs described beautiful parabolic curves, apd followed by a shower of salt, a lump of bread and a pickle bottle, offered a worthy oblation Miss Annie Scott was high priestess of the occasion, something in the style of the chief high priest in the Iliad, although she did not use the same invocation.

The usual large amount of fish was caught, and the party after they had wearied of piscator ial sport sat on some logs near the Westmoreland place and told yarns until a lizard from the precincts of Mr. Sherman's shirt front fixed a cold and glassy stare at him and broke up the seance. Coining back via the Fulfur Spring the party regaled themselves on green ap ples and water, a decidedly pecu liar menu. While Miss Emma Gabel was drinking an unseen hand tipped up the vessel and she got about a quart of water in her face and eyes Heralded by the lugubrious notes of Mr. Bull Frog, O. It. of S , the party moved on to Se quachee, wishing that they had a few more voices in their church choir like the gentleman's above mentioned, and one of the party even went so far as to say it made her think of O'lie Hamuli's deep chest notes.
