Sin F-.n 2r And Electric Railroad From Here to Nashville WILL SOON BE BUILT IT IS REPORTED Rights of Way Are Being Secured The New Company Has Heavy Capital. There has been much interest manifested here in the reported project to build an electric railroad Chattanooga to Nashville, an nouncement ot which was original ly made in the Chattanooga Times. Inquiry as to the status of the project was made by The Chatta nooga Times of parties in Detroit who are in a position to know. In regard to the matter the following information was received from I)e troit: "The Cumberland Coal and Tim ber company, which proposed to develop 4,000 acres of land in Vxr ren and adjoining counties in Ten nessee and to build an electric line from Chattanooga to Nashville, has been merged into the Tennessee Company, of Cleveland, a concern capitalized at $5,000,000, and hold ing about 40,000 acres of coal and timber land in the district where the property of the Cumberland company is located The Detroit people interested have exchanged their stock in the Cumberland company for securities of ihe Ten nessee company and the concern will be run piincipally by the of ficers of the latter company. "Ralph E. Aldrich, of Detroit, who was president of the Cumber land Coal and Timber company, said in an interview. 'We conclud ed to agree to a merging, because the Tennessee company was ready to begin work, while it would be some time before we could be pre pared to develop pur plans The Tennessee company had so much more land than we that it was in a position to do business on a larg er scale. That company will build the proposed electric line from Nashville to Chattanooga; in fact there are two men down there now getting rights of way. They are Frank B. Trout, of Detroit, who was one of the officers of the Cum berland company, and Mr. Drake, ot the Cleveland firm of Drake, Barnes & Co., which handled the deal by which our company was taken into the Cleveland concern."

Editors News: I desire to extend through iho col umns of the Sequachce Valley News my heartfelt thanks and my gratitude to the directors of the publle school for bestowing upon mo the honor of Sam Houston Academy prinelpalship, to the trustees for the use of the building, and to the many friends who have given me the hand of sincerity and congratu lation. To say that I am grateful for the honor thus bestowed would be to lightly express the appreciation felt, and in return for such kindnoss intend to put forth ray host endeavors to teach a number one school. But let mo im press upon the minds of my patrons that a great deal will depend upon the spirit in which they permit their child ren to enter. Should you entertain the slightest doubt about my teach ing a first-class, school I bog of you for the good of your children to let no such-conversation take place in their presence, and above all things impress upon their minds the all importance of obedience and rospect. I do not claim infallibility, consequently should your children tell you of mistreatment, come to me and I assure you it will be ar ranged to the satisfaction of all con cerned, but do not insinuate to your child that he has been mistreated. I am well cognizant of the fact that a teacher should have in mind more things than book learning. Pedagogy in Its simplest meaning is, the science and art of teaching books, but it em braces far more than that. It is to skillfully teach and wisely train child ren that they may attain the purest and best types of manhood and woman hood. The word educate is derived from two Latin words which moan to lead or to draw out, and hence it is leading a child out into the fields of physical culture, mental culture and moral culture. Realizing that co-operation is essen tial to sucoms I intend to bo in con stant touch with the directors and others who would prove efficient advisers. As the trustees have kindly consent ed to address the school the niornin? of the opening. I kindly request the pat- rons to send their children that morning so that they can receive the benefits of their remarks. Again thanking those who have been instrumental in placing me in charge of Sam Houston Academy and the peo ple who expressed their satisfaction with the selection of the directors, I beg to sign myseif, Sincnrely yours, H. G. SIMl'SON. Circuit Court. The regular session of the Circuit Court was opened at Jasper Monday, Judge Estill presiding.

Witt, whose "First Violin" waltzes, dedicated to Richard Mansfield had such unprecedented success, has just written a new waltz in Spanish rythm called "The Belle of Granada." It is already a favorite with orchestra leaders. "Don't Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve" is the significant title of a new ballad by the authors of "The "The Little Lost Child." 11 is a song which appeals to everyone's sym pathies. "Miizie, My Dusky Daisy" is the lat est craze in coon songs. It has a liulo touch of Spanish melody and r.ytbin in it and a chorus that every ono catches on to the melody. "The Hugvillo Urigadn" is an odd characteristic piece for the piano by Nick lirown. Everyone lilies this odd kind of a solo piocc, which while easy of performance, is at onco easy and ef fective. Williams & Walker have got leally a "crackerjaek" hit in thoir show this season. It is called when "Zaeharias Leads The Hand," and it has a very catchy melody indeed.
