The impression made at the meet
ing ot the Merchants Association
Monday night that the Training
School could be bought and consol
idated with the new State Normal
School for West Tennessee was an
error. We are authorized bv one of
the trustees to say that the Train
ing School is not. for sale, that it
is enjoying the ereatest term of
success in its history. There are
now about one hundred students
enrolled, through the efforts of the
ambitious young principal. Prof. C.
M. Matins. Thus it will be seen
that the enrollment is much hrger
than for years, and we have it that
the school is doing as good work as
ever known. A normal could do us
great good, but there ia plenty of
room for them ail.
Dr. F. M. McRee asks us to an
nounce that a general good roads
meeting will be held at the court
house in Union City on the first
Monday in March. Representatives
from every district in the county
are expected to be present, and a
large crowd is looked for. This
question is becoming very much the
leading topic, taking precedence of
everything else, and one would be
surprised to find how many are be
ing convinced that bonds should be
issued by the county tor road pur
poses. We have talked to a num
ber from different sections with
this sort of a response. Like Dr
Miles, many people are of the opin'
ion that the future generation
should not be left improvements
and advantages without some obli
gations. They should have to be
taught by experience as well as
their forefathers. Then loo we
might be getting back the use of
money which has been collected by
insurance companies and brokers
and accumulated in Wall street-
True we would have to pay the in
terest and some day the principal,
but think ot the benefits to be de
rived from it what a start we
would get by the distribution of
the money in the county, and what
an immense advantage the improve
ments would be.

Just as it rounded a sharp curve
the engineer noticed something on

the tram did not leave the track.
On examination it was found that

placed directly across the track,
