And Electric Railroad From
Here to Nashville
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
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
"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,
