Kelly, Presiding Elder, WITH IMPRESSIVE EXERCISES One More Handsome Church Edifice Decorating Old Sequachee Valley. The hew church building at Red Hill, built by the good of that community, was fnrnHLledicated Sunday by Dr. R. A. KtTthe pre siding elder of tins ilist.n-WM. E. Church, South, thus adding another church building to the line of church es decorating Sequachee Valley. Sun day school was held in the building previous to the dedication, under charge of the superintendent, at 9-.:i0. X At 10:00 the services of the day were commenced with a song service by the choir, Miss Grace Thomas, of Sequa chee, acting as organist, after which Rev. R. A. Kelly read the first and. second lessons for the day. After a hymn he preached an eloquent sermon, taking his text from I Heb. 1-2. His address waR listened to closely for he is an impressive speaker, giving his ideas fine imagery. At the close of his ser mon he said a few words regarding the beautiful church building, which stood there as a monument to the pro gress of the people of the neighbor hood, and then took up the matter, of dedication. There was a debt of some $80.00 yet remaining, and as it is a rule of the Methodist Church, not to dedicate a building to the service of G k1 unless all indebtedness is remov tht th- and .

It is built with high studding giving a lofty ceiling, and the floor slopes gently toward the pul pit. around which the seats are ar ranged in semi-circular rorm. The ex terior of the building is neatly painted in grey, with dark red trimmings, while the interior is ceilel with pine, but unpainted except the facings, wainscottings and three-quarter rounds which are stained.

It is situated two miles northeast of Whitwell. in the Whit-well-Sequachee Circuit of the M. E. Church, South. The corner-stone was laid February, t.". 1906, with impress ive ceremonies. The cost of the build ing is H, 350. 00, Great credit should be given the pas tor. Rev. S. S. Kreger. for his efforts to get the church built. He has been nntirhit in his efforts to get the church constructed and has not dis dained to qm his muscle as well as his thought in carrying out the idea to 1 achievement.

In the first place I did submit to n request of a few loyal friends of mine to allow a jietltion to go to the election commissioner to have my name printed upon the Dorch bal lot to lie voted for member of the Board of Education and expected the democrats to name some democrat to oppose me, but I must confess that I was surprised to find that a good many of the republican office-holders readily entered into a combine to bring defeat unto me. It reminds me of the twelve Apostles, when one of them whose name was Peter, undertook to deceive the Savior, who knew he, Peter, was making false statements at the time he related them unto his Savior. Now, in the first place I wish to con gratulate Mr. Spears, for I have for a long time regarded him as my friend, and do regard him as such yet, that I do not lay the blame of my defeat at his door for I know his character stands above reproach, and he will make an able member of the board of education. In the second place, I almost feel like I wanted to congratulate myself for be ing defeated by such a good young man and republican as Mr. Spears. In the third place I believe my past record will bear me out in sayiug that I have been faithful to my friends and loyal to ny party, Take the vote that was cast at .las er, 321; then take the vote of Mr. Spears and the vote for me, and you will find both added together is 130. Then subtract tiiO from 221 and yon will find it will leaves a remainder of 71 who could not swallow either of us. It is my opinion that the greater ma jority of this 71 were partisan demo crats. I leave today for Chattanooga to at tend the republican convention to nominate some loyal republican for governor and to transact such other business as may come before the con vention. I hope to meet some of my old friends that I marched under the same banner with during the trouble some days of 44 years ago. East Ten nessee has many able and loyal sons, whose fealty and loyalty to their coun try did not depend upon the pie that might be handed to them. Take, if you please, such men as the Brown lows, the Nelsons, Baxters, Johnsons, Houks, the Wrights and many others I could name. Will sav in conclusion thft the few number who v among as good people town of Jasper.

I have years that the, two would get together lost hope of this, I with the home rulers organize new leaders itical goodby to the (li Hon. George H. Tillm choice for governor.

There are several republicans already aspirants, to represent the good people of Marion .county in the next legislature. Who every he may be that is named to carry the republican ban ner, be will have to explain whether he abides by the dispensers of the pie or with the home rulers. T. R. H. Sequachee, Tenn. Belle Stimpter, Ala. Special to the NttUS, This is the 10th day of August and it seems almost cold enough to be frost on the ground. I have had a negro man about 24 years of age who came from Mississip pi, working for me this year. On the 25th of July I went to Birmingham and told him to hoe a piece of new ground com while I was gone. On my return home jnst at dark I called for the negro to come and take out iny mule from the buggy. He didn't come and I asked my wife if she knew any thing of him She said she did not and also said that there had been an awful rain and heavy thunder during the day. and the thought came to me that he was killed bj lightning. So I called some help and began to search for him. About ten o'clock in the night we found him in an old stooping hollow tree dead, where the lighting had struck the tree on the outside and run inside and killed him. Carl and Brady Jones are invited to come down to see us. I know they haven't anything to do Fit BIB. DEMOCRATIC MASS CONVENTION.

SNAKE MISTAKEN FOR A FISH Cool-Headed Young Marks Man Saves the Life of His Friend. JOPLIN, Mo., Aug. r..--Herbert Davis, aged 14, threatened with a death dealing stroke by a big rattle snake, was saved by the quick action of Francis Evans, aged 15. who sent a bullet through the head of the reptile just in time to prevent it burying its fangs in the flesh of his chum. The snake was wrapped around the arm of the Davis boy, who had grasped it un der the impression that it was a fish. Francis Evans is the son of Dr. M. H. Evans. Herbert Davis is the son of the owner of the swimming resort op North Main street. The boys are great chums and spend much time fish ing and hunting about the ponds north of the city. The swimming lake had overflown and the water filled a basin formed by mining operations half a a mile away. The overflow had allowed many fish to esca)e from the lake and many of them had been imprisoned in the basin. The boys were draining the basin and tak ing the fish back to the lake. The work of removing the fish bad nearly been completed when the Davis lad saw something move under a large rock. He promptly grabbed at it thinking it a fish, shouting as he did so, '"I'll bet this is a big one." He jerked it up and to his sorrow beheld a big rattlesnake squirming in his grasp. He attempted to release it but the snake was too quick, coiling about his arm and raising its head to strike. Francis Evans was standing beside the little pond leaning on a repeating rifle which is his companion on such expeditions. Young Evans heard the horror -stricken shriek of bis companion as the an- ;ered rattler swung back to sink its eadly fangs. There was no time for nught. In an instant the snake mid strike charging the blood of the ly with its deadly poison. Liike a fin the rine rose and a bullet crashed ough the rattler's head and it fell, My unwinding from Davis arm. vans then shot the snake six times. s threw his arms around his chum cried from nervous excitement. ccording to Davis the snake had r rattles and a imtton.

Benediction. The Business Outlook for 1898. On all sides we see evidences that the tide has turned. A steady im provement from this time onward may be looked for with confidence. In New York, Chicago, Pittsburg, St. Louis, Boston and other industrial centers mills are reopening their doors. The stocks of goods in the bands of manu facturers and wholesalers have been reduced to low figures, and the resump tion of purchases, which is under way in all the great lines of trade, is be ginning to send in orders to the fact ories with a little of their old-time volume. Within the past three weeks the out put of the mills of the United States Steel Corporation has beon increased ten per cent, over the average of re cent months. The promise is that by the beginning of November "that larg est of the world's steel concerns will be running its works to nearly their full capacity. The independent steel mills, which furnish almost half of the country's products are also responding to the upward turn in trade. This improvement is registering its elf in the reduction of the number of idle locomotives and I'ars. When the number was at its highest, in the clos ing days of April, 413.000 cars were sidetracked throughout the United States for lack of work. In the closing (lavs of Julv the number had dropped below the '300,000 line. The heavy (Tops, which in a few weeks will be gin to move to the markets, are likely to send the number of idle cars down to very small figures before November. If the election turns out to be what a large majority of the business men of the country want it to be, and what they expect it to be, every locomotive and car in the United States will prob ably be actively at work by January first.
