The Rockwood Times Out in Meeting Con cerning the Road Bonds. Tho following from the Rockwood, Tenn., Times is sent us with a request for publication. "We have spent in this county more than 8200,000 in building less than 3A miles of pike; now we are promised 101 miles for 9150,000; this proposition is simply absurd and preposterous. It might possibly pay for the engineering of the right of way and tbe dlffere.nl committees and plow up tbe roads, but there it would stop; then we would be asked for another $150,000 to put down the macadam, and by that time toe roads would have to be rnplowed snd graded, another set ol engineers em ployed and perhaps another set of committees to be paid, which would necessitate a third issue, making In all about $450,000. A proposition to build 101 miles of Dike with $150,000 is a fraud upon tbe face of it and no half sane man believes it oan be done; it is simply thrown in as a vote catcher, but tbe people ana tax payers ol this coun ty have been fooled so often that tbey are more in a state of rebellion when bonds are mentioned. We say ttey will not carry." COMMITTED SUICIDE. S. S. Kittrell Hangs Himself at Monteagle While Mentally Unbalanced. Monteagle, Tenn., Feb. 3. (Special.) Our town was shocked yesterday by tbe announcement that a man had hanged himself. On investigation it was proved to be true, and S. S. Kit trell the party.

It is situated 5 miles northeast of Mineral Wells and 18 miles north of Weather ford, and reaches up in tho mountains on which is situated Stag Prairie. As to its soil it is from a sand rock to a bog willowy musquite prairie, and is adap ted to most all tho field crops. Most all kinds of varmints are in tbis hollow such as tbe wolf, polecat, opossora or jackrabbit. It is hard to tell which grows the rankest in 'Possom Hollow, Johnson grass or tho pole cats. Ye writer has to be very careful with his neighbors for if be offends any of them tbey just go up on tbe side of the mountain and begin to roll rocks down at tbe bouso and then I have to apolo gize.

Nobody in tho room but me, and must I meet all those girts?

The republicans did not carry a single state that had as many colored voters as the state of Kentucky. Tbe republican plurality In each of the twenty-eight tit.es exceeded the number of republi can voters except In Delaware and Ma ryland.
