Works Elsewhere i Maj James C Harris of Tiptonvillf Teun the pioneer and rich planter of Lake county is in Memphis He has by no means given up his hopes of draining Roolfoot lake so as to cultivate thousands of sores of land now underwater aud still leave several thousand acres for a fish pond but he is also pro paring to urge upon the next general assembly a bill which if it should be come an act would result in opening to cultivation thousands of auras of land now hardly worth its taxes There aro 100000 acres of land ift Tennessee he said to a repprter for the Memphis Nows itting intho lobby of the Peabody not worth quo cent per acre more than they were 100 years ago If my plan is put into effect this land will become tho most productive farm laud in the State and the increase in taxes from it will pay the State debt All We want is some aid from the State and tlmt aid will not cost the State one cent I DIFFICULTIES AT PRESENT c1 know of fully 100000 acres of laud covered Ity small lakes in the river tier of counties such as Sunk Lake and subject to overflow from the crooked creeks which are now of no valueOf courso tho land under water cannot be cultivated and in addition to this there are the groat tracts around the lakes and in the bends of the streams which are too boggy for crops The trouble with all present plans for drainage is that where this land is owned by say a dozen men ton may be willing and anxious to subscribe to a fund which would dig a ditch to a river and open tho laud while tho other two would not consent to put up a cent Tho ten naturally do not want to spend all the money and let the other two get an equal amount of benefit DETAILS OF PLAN The plan which I am going to try tp got tho general assembly to carry out is to have a State law requiring the Coun tv Conrt upon the petition of the majority owners of any tract of swampland to creato a commission which shall ascertain the cost of draining tho water off and then assess the cost against all of the property which will be jenefittcd by tho removal of the water In the caso of lakes and plain swamps the work would be a simple ditch and in the case of crooks it would consist of straightening ant the bonds so that the xcsiyfrrairsrair vuuidvpos5ofl quick ly instead of spreading aver the whole countryi open up to cultiva tion no less than 100000 acres of as fine land as could be found anywhere an- do d it at a small cost to the owners and none to the State I have had my attorneys look into thart such a law would be constitutional and could easily be drawn to escApe the rock upon which Qur old Reelfoot levee district split- Missouri has snch a law and it works Weil In both that State and Indiana I have seen as fine land as you can hud anywhere which was under water for 100 years and which now produces 90 bushels of corn to the acre WILL OWN UEELPOOT YET Speaking of the Reelfoot lake case Maj Harris said that he still hajd hopes of draining sisfcdt of water out of the lake and thus uncovering to cultiva tion some 22000 acres of land now in the shoal waters of the lake and the scatters at the south end of it This hoisaid would leave 6000 to 8000 acres in the lake proper I am confident that the courts jtvill yet give me possession of this In fact when the caso was in tho Supremo Court that body hold that the State could grant the lake and I am now having surveys made to show that tho grants T haroI from tho State cover all of the hike On this decision h have to get possession of tho land and when I do I shall open 22000 acres to cultivation anti protect the remainder from netting so that it will aging becorna filled with game fis for which it was once ono of the most famous places in the conntry Tho pro fessional fishermen have mole almostI

Louisville HeraldCommercial I The end of a very remarkable business struggle came Friday witli the sale of the business of the Sun Life Insurance Company uud its retirement from opera ion The last regular life in surance company of the Stilts has bee orcedto retire by the onorous taxation laws under which Kentucky insurance companies have vainly tried to make progress The old Mutual Life of Kentucky could trace the be ginning of its end to the same cause Here were two great financial institutions involving assets of more thin 000000 closed up within a year One was sold to a Chicago company the other to New York Fifteen years ago the State laws governing life insurance were so lax that encouragement was given to all sorts of coopera tive and assessment companies under plans that could not pos sibly succeed With the new Constitution cause a radical change that has made it impossi ble for time best managed and most carefully planned compa nies to continue Yet there is a constant cry fc forHome companies to keep insurance money at home How this is to be done when the law gives the out sider the advantage is not clear How it is to be done unless law makers understand the possi bilities of the laws they make iis beyond comprehension The Metropolitan cite take the re serves of the Sun Life amount ing to nearly a million dollars invest them in New York wler reserves are not taxed and mak the business profitable If th Sun Life had remained here th tax would have confiscated alarg part of the vital energy of th company How therefore a home company keep insurance money at home A home com pany is impossible under the law A ileedCeagk Medicine From the Gazette Toowoomba AusJ Remedyissuffering from a severe cough for the last two months and it has effected a cure

free cigars free umbrellas free walking sticks free collars free cuffs or free beefsteaks Every I7vY 01 a newspaper is a pro uct WhIch costs money The tailor the to bacconist the gents furnisher or the grocer is not called upon to supply free copies of the products which they handle The people who are aggrieved if they cannot get a free copy of a newspaper would not think of struggling for a place on the free list of a grocery store a dry goods store or butchers shop It is the princi pIt more than the cost of the free newspaper idea which is repug nant to all sound business notions There

Southern rivers which at one time was uu amusement as well as a convenience has become almost obsolete wherever railroads tiara offered quicker conveyance The time consumed in the jour ray from one point to another is now the controlling factor in deciding upon the route to be taken and atSticonsume about threefold the time that railroads do If time is no object the steamboat is in many ways preferable to the steam car There is also a social life on board as well as ever varying view of life on shore There are no cinders- or dust and the traveler who hits the leisure can thoroughly enjoy himself When on a rail trip the passenger is always longing for the end and a release from the cramping surroundings On a boat trip ho will not care about the end save to regret its arrival Now conies H II Liemke of fit Loafs who asserts that the cause of the decline of river tnucl is not fO much the slowness of the bouts us the uncertainty of their arrival at any particularii point or course the boats themselves should be spedior in ordur to compete with the railways bat the chief trouble is that they cannot be relied upon at any stage of their journey Mr Liemke believes that if fast steamers are constructed and run ou schedule time trade on the Mississippi will revive he intends to test the matter and is now building a yacht uiodci steamboat 350 feet lour CO foot beam and 3 feet draft tight to run between St Lonis and New Orleans His plan contemplates boat each way each day in the week ith no stops except at important towns There will be no waiting for freight or passengers People who want to get aboard between stations will bo fHQked up by a local tug and transhipped to the packet while the latter is under full headway Mr Liemko is confident that it his boats haven carfully adhered to schedule they will receive large patro nage but he will not neglect the personal comforts of his patrons He pnr to make first class floating hotelsJ his boats the cabins being modeled Soundosteamers and the rates will be reason able The experiment promises well There is a clientele that can be drawn onUte welltodo or leisure class and there should be good patronage in the full
