Most respectfully, J. E. DYER. Regarding the electric line route from Nashville to Chattanooga, it will be noted from a perusal of our news col umns that Sequachee, as usual gets the small end of the deal. For years we were buoyed up with the hope that the Southern Railway extension would be built through our town, , but it has dodged us by three miles in a direct line and seven good long miles to get to its nearest available station. Then we were led to believe that it would con struct a through line to Nashville via this place, connecting with the Ten nessee Central, but tbe inability of tbe owners of that property to make a proper title, has dampened that delus ive dream. Now comes in an electric railroad project which will miss the town by a mile, acres of farming land intervening which are liable at any time to be covered with from five to ten feet of water. Hence the probabil ity of development in that direction is delusive unless it was decided to raise ducks. However we are soothed in our anguish by the promise of a loop line, and a hint that headquarters in the 37-story sky-scraper corner of Tennes see Avenue and Central street, will be established. If the owners' of this property can see a point, right now is the time to get on their feet and work like demons to get it. Let that line be built without pass ing through this place and "our vil lage" is deader than a herring and will be for all time. Wake up, ye gen tlemen, owners of this property, and persuade those electric railroad people that you want the line through this place, and are willing to help pay for running it this way. THAT'S THE WAY TO DEVELOP THINGS. At the recent Episcopalian Diocesan convention at Indianapolis it was un animously resolved that, "We declare that it is the business of Christians and churchmen to be honest before they .'ire rich; that success gained by violating the law or by swindling one's fellows is a base thing; that the greed for wealth and power which leads men into these crimes must be checked; that the church cannot afford to allow men to think that her silence, much less her approval, can be purchased by gifts from them; that unless the church does take a strong stand against these sins of the rich and powerful she will inevitably lose her weight and influ ence and sink to t.ie level of the world's life."

One of the staff writers of the New York Evening Journal, whose matter appears in all of the Hearst papers in different parts of the country, is known as Beatrice Fairfax. She conducts a semi editorial department addressed largely to youngs people. In a recent number of the Journal the article be low appears in the department. The tone is so markedly different from some of the matter which has appear ed in similar departments of other pa pers as to make its publication nota ble, while the matter itself merits re production. The average young man starts out on his career with a fighting chance of success. But he must work and work hard if he wishes to attain it. He can't go at it in a halfhearted way, working hard one day and neglecting business the next There are a great many things he can't afford and the chief of these is drink. Dring leads him into a thousand and one extravagances that he would not dream of in his sober senses. There is so much competition in ev ery line of business now-a-days that a man must be keenly alert every mom ent if he would succeed. It stands to reason that the man with .the drink befuddled brain is bound to go to the wall. Nobody sympathizes with him, but every one pities him. It seems such a wicked shame that a man should so deliberately ruin his life. He probably meant to do such wonderful things when he first started. With his brave yonng head held high and his soul fired with ambition, he felt he would conquer nations. And instead, drink has conquered him. When a young man begins to drink he goes about with a lot of merry com panions. They think they are having a very good time; they laugh a great deal and do many foolish, ridiculous things that would seem exceedingly silly to them were they sober. People laugh t them, and they feel they are men of the world, and are rather proud of themselves than other wise. They have no idea of becoming confirmed drunkards; their only idea is to have a little fun. But, alas 1 by the time the "fun" stage is past the habit is too firmly acquired to be cast aside. Drink is an octopus with a hundred tentacles thrust out to hold its victims. No one laughs at the young man now. He has become a failure and a bore, and the world has no use for fail nres and bores. The people who have loved him best never laughed. For every man in the orld who drinks some woman's heart aches. It may be a mother or a sister or a sweetheart, later a wife. The young man who drinks has no right to ask a girl to marry him. He often wins her under promise of reform,. but if the girl is wise she waits until the reformation has become an accomplished fact. Not one man in a thousand would marry a woman addicted to drink. Why, then, should a womauv risk her happiness by marrying a man who drinks? The word drink spells failure fail ure in business, in love, in friends, in everything that goes to make life hap py. On one side the young man and his curse, the whiskey bottle, stand alone, deserted ; and on the ' other side, delib erately pushed away from him by his own hand, stand success, family, friends, love. And every man can of his own free will choose which side to stand on if he makes his choice in the beginning. But if he waits until the whiskey has the upper hand the battle will be long and bitter. Drivers, III. Special to the Ntws, We have been so busy planting corn and setting out potato slips and digging a well that we have not had time to write to the good old Reliable. It does me good to get it, for it tells the news from New York to Indian Territory. It is hot and dry up here and there hasn't been any rain here to amount to anything in four weeks and every thing in burning up around here. Lige Smith took his pigs to Wood long and sold them. He had seven and they were just four months old and their weight was 7:15 rounds. They were the prettiest pigs I ever saw. We are going to commence raising chick ens next week. We have bought the old ben and spoke for the eggs to set her on. We will set her on 100 to try her luck. It will be like Sampson's riddle, "Six sat and seven sprung from the dead the living come. ; ' I would like for T. J. Bostain to tell me if George Euierlane is there or not and also let me know if Frank Beeker is there or not. He is a Dutchman and lives on the Gadson road. I wonder when Harvey Turner is coining back to Dnluoin, 111. He will lose his girl if he stays away long. She is sure pretty but mighty bashful but that is the way of all these Illinois girls. We have just got back from a big basket meeting and it was a fine one. Everylsuly was there except Uncle Gid and his red-headed boy anil I think I met him coming as we left. If it was him he got there for evening sermon. He had a red headed girl in the buggy with him. I am going to Du Quoin, 111., this evening and I want to see Harvey Tur ner when I get there. Hope the News and its reader will have gnodluck. Brother Gal. IJOOU'S rVapari!la i the nudU !

Harris went to Victoria Sunday. Last Manday was about as busy a day as our merchants have had lately. It is said that M. D. Moss will move back from Petros in the near future. Wash Hooper, of Pittsburg, Ga., is in the city, mingling with his many friends. A show always attracts considerable numbers to the city and Monday was no exception. There was preaching at the Baptist and also at the Christian churches most of last week. The Ernest Haag show arrived in the city Sunday morning and gave an exhibition Monday. Miss Rinda Prigmore, and Mesdames Friend and Christian, of Victoria, at tended the show Monday. The delegates who attended the dem ocratic convention at Nashville last week, have all returned conscious of having performed a patriotic duty. Some boys went to the Sequachee riv er Sunday to go in bathing and while in were shot at by some parties on the shore. The parties that did the shoot ing were arrested. , Rev. J. M. Hosier preached at the M. E. Church, south, last Sunday at 11 a. m. The rest of the day was given to the children, it being Child ren's day. At 7 p. m. the children gave an entertainment which was largely attended and highly appreciat ed. WHITWELL. Special to tht News. Rev. Duiran filled his regular ap pointment at Shady Grove Sunday, but on account of rain there were not very many out to hear him. He preached a very interesting sermon. The death angel visited the home of Charles Furguson and took from the home the loving wife and mother Fri day night at twelve o'clock. God looked down in tender mercy and said, "You have suffered long enough, come up higher," and that loving wife and mother took her flight for a better world. She leaves a husband and eight children, father, two brothers and a sister to mourn her loss, and that place is vacant which never can be hlled. We will miss yon, we will miss you, we loved yon, yes we loved you, but God and his angels loved you best and have taken you to rest until the resur rection morning. Mother will be miss ed in that home but Oh I loved ones, look to our blessed Saviour. He will comfort you in your great trouble. He is ready to help you. We know it is hard to give up a loved one, but God's will be done, not ours. ' 'A precious one from us is gone, A voice we loved is still ; A place is vacant in our home Which never can be filled." She was laid to rest at Mt. Olivet cemetery Sunday evening. Farewell, farewell to that precious mother until the Resurrection morning. She was loved by everybody and it is hard to give her up but if we will all live for Jesus, tve will meet her in that sweet bye and bye where there will be no more parting, no more pain nor death and where we will all be with our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Come now, ye orphan children, Who sorrow here below, And join me in the promise That you'll to glory go, And when our labor's ended, And time shall be no more, v We will go and live with mother Where parting is no more. May the saving grace of our Lord an'i Saviour, Jesus Christ, rest and abide, with us all now and forever more, is my prayer. A Friend. A LOVER'S WAIL. Companions and friends, , If you will attend A story of love I will tell, For indeed and in truth, I loved in my youth One Nellie that lived in the dell. In memory still I see the green hill That sheltered the home of Miss Nell ; The oak and the pine, The cedar and vine, That grew by the spring in the dell. When first I did go as Miss Nellie's beau, I was bashful, too bashful to tell, But I soon better learned, My heart with love yearned For Nell, the maid of the dell. Miss Nellie one day, did send me away; My feelings no mortal can tell; My heart it was sad, I went early mad For Nellie, the maid of the dell. So I started one day, and softly did say Adieu to my beautiful Nell; ' I'll go to the land Of cactus and sand. Where there is no girl in the dull. Since then 1 have roamed away from my home And of Nellie I've naught heard tell, Perhaps she is wed, But maylnj she's dead And buried away down in the dell. No doubt in my mild that memory will find That the story I've written is true, For to loso one's best girl Sets the world in a whirl And makes you despondent and blue. Long years have gone by since falter ing I My story to Nellie did tell, Her face did blush. She told me to hush Another one lives in the dell. C.R Rod v. Ark. M. NOTICE. 1 will be at.

The Dunlan boom has caught fire. There being no fire department handy the bucket brigade had a lovely time. A telephone message was sent to old Dofetchet for help, as Dunlap thought he was on the water wagon, but tbey were mistaken, he is not in favor of the Adams law by a long shot, and will never be. Hogs and people may have the cholera, yellow fever and small pox and all other eontageous diseases but old Do will still have that whiskey and tobacco taste. Oh, for a religion that would dispossess the old boy of just one or two of those habits. He says it's a help to the community. He is well posted in the insect busi ness. Of course the tater bugs don't bother him for his wife makes the garden. The only help he is to her is when he gets a plug of old snap in his mouth and works his jaws like an al ligator, squirting amber in all direc tions. If the garden was in the front yard that would kill everything but a terrapin or dogfennel, and nothing will kill that. So you see old Do is a hard case. He is religious at certain times. They put him in jail one time and he got out of tobacco and says, "I will play that old trick of Paul and Si las." I told him it was too old and would not work. He said he thought it would, but it failed. C. E. James is one of the greatest person's in Marion county. That man has a resolution like a hand saw. He is fixing to have electricity to light up all Marion county for years to come. That sort of a man's name will go down in history as one of the greatest men on record. We are glad to know the Southern R'y folks are grading the road so fast. They are camping as far down the riv er as Silas McNabb's. We are glad to hear from our people at Empire, Ala. We see Mr.Knott has a good job. Glad to hear that, Tom mie. Why don't you write to me old boy. I would like to hear from you and Gordon Tittle. I bought him a necktie one time the only one he ever had in his life. Would like to hear from the Etna boys at Empire, Ala. They are jolly good fellows. How is Wes HixV Is he still assistant school teacher? Ask Celia Brumley how she likes her present and watch her smile. Ask S. C. Brumley what he thinks of Cal Parson and you will see one of those Dofetchit grins. Well, old Do is going to put him up a separator to divide locusts and fleas. He says there are forty bushels of fleas to the acre and 800 bushels of locusts to 50 square feet. He is in favor of all insects. It is a bard matter to get him to tell the truth much less a lie, although that is not a common thing for old Do, for his mouth is rather crooked. Now, old Do, keep on your feet I want a lick at your head, not your feet for that is the biggest part about you Success to the News. Let's make our paper a good one. Gofetchit Coalmont.
