The News has been imposed up on lately in some communications sent to it. Hereafter if t anyone de sires to make statements about any one or anyone's business or correct any alleged error in the News, we will do so only above your signature. This applies only to correspondents whose evident purpose is to raise a row at the expense of some one else. Correspondents who write in good faith are always welcome to these columns, but those who wish to stir up strife and discord must do so on ly above their own signature to stand the consequence. We are truly glad to note that Marion County will issue bonds and build good roads to be the property of the county. A deciss ion to this effect was reached by the county court of that county last week. There is absolutely no doubt but that the magistrates net' ed wisely. Good roads not only enhance the value of the property adjacent to them, but they will re sult in an actual saving to the pub lie which will far more than over balance the increase in taxation. There is no other invistuieni that the farmer can make that is cer tain of handsome returns as the money invested in guul roads. Marion County has placed herself in the vann of progress, and her citizens have a right to bold their heads high with pride Mrs Grun dy. Tracy City.

A FA 1'HKRLY INTEREST. Under a legislative enabling act framed by the last legislature., the County Court of Marion County bus authorized issuance of 8150,000 in bunds for thn purpose of build ing 100 miles of roads. The action of the court seems to meet the ap proba'ion of the Marion County people, but outsiders who seem to have a fatherly interest in these people, come In the front with protests against such profligate ex penditure of money. The Troy News-Banner sees awful things in the distant future for Marion coun ty as a result of the road bonds. "The bright children and parties ulnr stars of ye first magnitude," says that paper, "met in special session last Monday and by a vole of 14 to 9 made the bond issue opi-r-ativ-, Marion county i.- a wretch ed, hilly, rocky, poveity stricken little county, with a population a hout half thatof Obion county with resources ubout one fourth. What have these silly dunces done? They have saddled a debt on Mart ion County that will curue them to the latest generations. No Mich power ought to have been con 'erred on the County Court and they ought to have had more Bense of honor or propriety than to have exercised it. The plain facts are that the people of Marion County were first stripped of their consti tutional riglus and then robbed, beaten and plundered and we have no doubt for the ulterior pur pose of well greasing somebody's itching palm " Nashville News.

"Mrs. Grundy," of Tracy City, condenses all arguments in favor of good roads when she praises the action of our County Court in the matter of good roads The good lady has a prettv level headpiece, and always says the right thing at the right time Marion will have good roads, yet, let the minority prognosticate all the evils they want to.

According to some of the wise acres Sunday was Ground Hog Day and as it was a very dark and cloudy day his majesty could not see his shadow and so we are to have an early spring. There were fifteen or sixteen preachers in attendance last week at the Missionary Institute of the Spring City District of the M. E. Church South. Speeches were made by several of the preachers. The preaching was done by Revs. J. F. Gery, J. A. Greening, E. E. Wiley, Frank Jackson. About when Ground Hog Day comes we do not pretend to know, neither do we know if the ground hog comes out of his den on that par ticular day and seeing his shadow that he goes back and stays forty-two days, causing us to have a late spring.
