Telephone Messenger Caught Tapping the Till. Stanfield Cannon, a boy about fifteen years old, is not now a messenger in the service of the Cumberland Telephone Company. For some time ho had been suspected of putting his fingers too far into the cash drawer, and he was caught in the act Tuesday night by Police Office Sam Cobbs. When the telephone people went to supper on that evening Officer Cobbs was posted in a little room near where the money drawer is, and watched through a hole in a partition. It was not long before he saw the young man open the drawer and take several dol lars, and immediately arrested him. Young Cannon then confessed that he had been taking money daily from the company for some time, and it is believed that the amount will reach seventy-five dollars. Superintendent Foster Hume happened to be in the city, and he at once dismissed the boy from the employ of the company, but will not prosecute him because he does not believe that children should be confined anywhere except in the house of reform.

The formation of the Brown pool with a capital of ten million dollars to sup port the cotton market, by assisting farmers and others to retain their hold ings, until the price reaches a satisfact ory level, is one of the most promising developments of the cotton agitation. It is under the direction of men who know their business; who are directly interested in the success of the move ment and who have proved the skill in conflict with the bears. The surplus cotton now in the inter ior, in first, or second hands, is the reli ance of the bears to fill their summer contracts; the mills will take all in sight, now at the ports, between this date and next summer; if this interior cotton can be held, the holders of it can fix the price; if not the bears will fill their con tracts at a profitable leisure. That con tingent never sleeps; they are today ap- j prehensive of the consequences of the present agitation and will gather in every bale of spot cotton offered below the summer price at which they con tracted to deliver. Will interior hold ers help this contingent or will they help themselves? Will they sacrifice their produce for the benefit of the speculators, or will they hold it for their own and the common benefit. The means for holding are bow present and available; it is not necessary for anyone to sell at prevailing prices; there is money enough in the south to finance the holding movement and it will be forthcoming with the cotton for securi ty. It is, therefore, inconceivable that the volume of port receipts should con tinue to depress the market.—Exchange. Lost or Stolen,—Three fox terriers, two males and one female. One of the dogs is all white except left ear, one has black head and tan spots. Female is white with the exception of the right side of her head.
