Appropriation .Are Made for the Coming Year. - At its annual meeting Thursday the county high school board elected the faculties of the Central High School at Columbia and the High School at Mt Pleasant. The faculties of these schools heretofore appointed by the city boards of the two places were approved. The board met this morning at the office of County Superintendent Gra ham with all of the members present except Col. Joseph L. Hutton. It was decided to increase the faculty of the Columbia school to nine, an addition of one. This was made necessary by the increase in the school classes, in being found that some of the grades would have to be divided into sec tions. The appropriation for the Columbia High School was fixed at $6,750 while the Mt. Pleasant school will receive $2,755. On account of the passage of the Cookeville Polytechnical bill the county will receive 25 per cent les3 for its high schools 'than it has been receiving. The meeting was a most" harmoni ous one and every member express ed pride in the achievements of the school during the past year. Except for the addition of one member at Co lumbia the faculties will be the same for the coming term that they were last year. The . total enrollment of the Columbia High School last term was 231, and at Mt. Pleasant it was 99. "OLD USHER'S, DEAD." (J. Madison Sheppard in Baltimore Sun.) v "Old Usher's" dead! Did you know him? Usher, the tramp, That once hoboed in on us from the Gipsy-camp Up the river? No; you didn't, I see from your frown; But, there are many who did that live in the town. "You have heard of him?" Well you'll perhaps listen then To this story of the man from nowhere and when. Well do I remember, how, all tattered and torn Grease besmeared travel besmirched bewhiskered he'd grown, Until careless boys laughed at him ragged and bent As, on, from door to door, begging for bread, he went. Girls, even, giggled at him the policeman scowled; And men with means wondered from whence he could have prowled. finally, one woman gave him something to eat, , Though her manner said plainly; "Old man you're a beat." But when he'd finished his meal, he offered to pay By working her garden, where, all hidden away . In a wilderness of weeds, flowers might be seen, Struggling for life amidst an oasis of green. His work wrought such wonders when he'd commenced to prune, . That the mistress had hired him (while, yet 'twas not noon) To care for her garden: make beautiful the way For those passing her home on their journeys, each day. For, old Usher she'd found, had a place in the world; At his touch all the beauty in flowers unfurled, And breathed forth their fragrance in so soft, sweet a way, That many learned to love them; and would stop each day, To watch the unfolding of that rough, tangled mat: And to see how old Usher did this and did that. And, soon they got the hablt( as habit oft comes,) Of asking how to cure their sick geraniums. For, old Usher knew how to make pansies bloom right; And the sweet-peas, grew sweeter when under his sight. His name become a by-word for children at play; For those, whose hearts he'd softened, doing things God's way. He taught them to love and to care for their flowers; Polished, and refined them, and made happy the hours They would spend in their gardens working out God's plan; And then the death angel claimed him this' strange old man. K was yonder he died, beneath that window there Opening out on its garden of flowers, rare. The mistress, inside, was singing a song, 'twas said, When the angel came and, with faltering steps led Him close to the window; where, floating out o'er its sill Came the words of that old song: "Her Bright Smile Haunts Me Still," faded old picture was found next to his heart, Embellished with thees words: "Until death do us part." " .7 The likeness it resembled the mistress, some said, ...... fiut that can matter little now Old Usher's dead. v ?teeeef Mnet6ff1 AROUND TOWN.

The law has been effective for the last two months. It defines tne act of giving a worthless check of lass than $30 as a misdemeanor, punishable ty a fine or workhouse sentence. Pass age of a worthless check of a higher denomination is. a felony and. the drawee may be extradited from an other stale for the offense. Retail credit men estimate that bad checks will be practically eliminated when the law is given wider publicity, They state the law protects the mer chant against the dishonest :nan be cause it allows seven, days for the check to be made good. The mer chant is also required to nodty the writer of the check by letter to his last known address. Various estimates on the efliciency of the law are made by Nashville credit men.
