THE ROANE COUNTY BONDS.
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."

'POSSOM HOLLOW, TEX.

disertation upon it as best we can. 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. Possom Hollow is sort of like tbe old
lady from Arkansas said. If you will
allow me I will tell you about it. She

said ''and you have left that beautiful
and good country, have you?" "Yes,"
said the old lady, "I just tell you tbey
have more cows there and have less milk
and butter, bave more big meetings
and less religion, more clouds and less
rain than any country I ever saw."
