A few days since Floys Carter, Just across the river, prevented a wreck of the M. & O. northbound morning passenger train. Mr. Car ter was on his way to town, noticing a rail out of line he found, on ex amination, that it was broken. The weather was extremely cold, but the passenger was about due, so Mr. Carter went back quite a distance and after an hour's wait flagged the train. The first man off was just a little gruff, enquiring "whrt's the matter." They pulled on "P slowly and from the train rather thought the alarm was uncalled for, but when they got off and walked closer they near took . Mr. Carter off his feet with good will slaps on the back and expressions of grati tude. The supervisor was on the train and made the remark that a serious wreck had been prevented and $100,000 saved to the road. The atter took Mr. Carter's name down, from which our people believe will bring more talk later.

Newsom, of Obion, will fill his regular appointment Sabbath at the M. E. Church. The Sabbath school reports an enrollment of fifty and attendance of regular members. The Missionary Society meets Mon day afternoon with Mrs. W A. Mc Neill. The lecture class of the C. P. Church, a movement for a more ef ficient Sabbath school, in its rapid growth, is destined to be the largest enrolled. R. L. Harper has charge of this class and it is needless to say, as a layman, ranks with the best in Bible lore and applications. Mitchell, Botts and Bryan this week shipped a carload of hogs, top- ping $7. .30, with probable higher market at end of destination. A carload of poultry at 12 cents per pound was also shipped by mer chants and independent buyers. The question is again before the Pleasant Hill C. P. congregation to consolidate with this congregation. In this combination there would be strength and a conservation that we believe would be felt both at home and abroad.
