This caving so m e t i m es amounts to recession of the bank line of 800 feet annually ; but about two hundred feet may be considered as a normal amcunt of caving in the bend annualy. Now, if the banks of these .bends were held to a fixed line, the path of the current of the Mississippi river across the shoals would also remain fixed, and also, ns there would be no increment from bank erosicn to the amount of sediment that the river carries, there would be none to drop on the shoal and serve to build it up. Uncle Sara's idea is to prevent the caving of the banks. This is the whole object of the revetment works. The strong current of the rivsr bed will continually undermine an unprotected bank, which, because of tremenbous pressure brought to bear will cave off in huge pieces. The mattresses and stone pavings adopt-e- d by the government as an efficient remed for the contingency, arenon-erodabland by their fortified character, which renders the strongest current harmless, they overcome cord II ions otherwise deplorable.

Everything Propitious. the the The committee appointed to look into the proposition of extending the Dversburcr Northern Railroad from Tiptonville to Hickman, is meeting witn nil kinds of enouragement. The lareest land owners between the two points are offering to donate liberally and help the good work along. Contrary to the general rule, all parties, who have been seen by the committee, who own land along the route, are heartily in tavor ot the road. No argument is necessary to In duce a sensible man to support this proposition financially and with his influence. It is readily seen that to run a road tcrouga the undeveloped territory of the lower end of this county is to almost double the land values. From present Indications, the committee will have little trouble in raising the amount asked by the railroad company as a bonus. Not only will the land owners contribute to this fund, but Hickman merchants will do their part when the subscrlp tion paper is passed around. This will probably be done within the next few days. The committee is now engaged In the preliminary woric necessary to this end.

Billiard, the defaulting bookkeeper, who with three others dug through the walls of the county jail in this city last January and made their escape, was caught Monday at Long Beach, Mississippi, a small town on the Gulf of Mexico. This is the second time Bullard has escaped from the county authorities and been caught. Last year after being arrested, and placed under bond, he left for parts unknown, being captured later In Virginia. He was brought back and placed in county jail to await his trial. During his incarceration, a jail delivery was planned and executed, four prisoners escaping, and though Bullard had a chance to es cape, he did Dot leave but rather aided Jailer Noonon by locking the all door and preventing others from getting away, and held the keys and waited outside until the jailer returned from town where he went to give the alarm. This act solicited in some measure sympathy from "Uncle Joe" and he was more or less a trusty thereafter until he escaped, being allowed to remain in the cor ridor of the prison. Of the three who escaped, only one had been caught up to Monday. Deputy Sheriff Goalder Johnson left today for Mississippi to bring the man back, and will reach here about Saturday with him.

Ah, yes, mat is a nice tnlng to dream about. but when you have lived on the farm and followedlhis meandering bus! ness for a month or so, you will dis cover a wide chasm between the dream and the reality. You'll think of this about the time your hutband meanders off and leaves you without wood, and you have to meander up and down the lane pulling splinters on tne lence witn which to cook dinner. And when you meander around in the wet clover in search of the cows you will have a dimpre ception that fond dreams do not al ways pan out a hundred cents on the dollar, and that there are sever al meanderings in farm life that are not listed in the dreaming cateeorv. The meandering business on the tarm is not what it is cracked up to be. A SENSELESS HABIT.

Townsend and Jake Plant, met in this city and out- lined a proposition which was to the Boards of Education of Hickman and Fulton allowing pupils from any part of Fulton county to attend the high schools of either place free of charge. Both local boards agreed to the arrangement, and beginning with the September terms, all pupils who have complet ed the common school course of study may enter these high schools, without paying tuition. This plan will give to the pupil from the rural districts access to the high school at a comparatively small cost, and from all points of view, it seems to be a judicious step on the part of those in charge of the administration of the county's Educational affairs. Itputs the most remote school district in touch with the test the county has to offer; also making a direct connnection with the State Heretofore there was a University. gap between the high school and the University, which could only be bridged by some preparatory school.

It is a survey by the Government. of the swamp lands of est Tennessee, embracing the Reelfoot Lake region, which was the subject of a conference meeting at Memphis on Monday between Director George O. Smith and his assistant. Van H. Manning, of the geological survey, and Chancellor John S. Cooper, of Trenton. A topographical and drainage sur veyor Is contemplated in case the present plans are carried out. Congressman Garrett has assurance of the of the United States Geological Survey, especially with reference to drainage if the State will lerd its hand, as Arkansas, Louisiana and Missouri have done. It is estimated that more than a million acres of West Tennessee lands are redeemable by drainage, with reference to which the surveys are to be made. The conference was with Chancel lor Cooper because of the fact that he has given the drainage question years of study and is exceptionally well Informed as to conditions and necessities.

There is a triumpathant creak from the engineroom, and the big windlass begins, slowly, to lift the captured snag out of the water. WORK OFTFH STRENUOUS. Sometimes the task is a short one. But often it takes hours to complete it. The snag may prove to be the whole body, branches and roots of some gigantic tree which a caving bank has cast into the stream. Then the top is sawed off, after being hauled well up out of the wit-e- r, the hawsers being made fast, meantime, below the cut. The top is dropped into the stream and carried off by the current, while the windless hauls up another section. And so the snag boat works down along the length of the great snag, until at last the great mass of earth encased roots appears. There is then just one more cut to make and this is taken as close as possible to the roots, which are allowed to drop into the water and sink to the bottom out of harm's way. Then the last remaining section qf the body of the snag is released from its fastenings and slides back over the big roller with a mighty splash. And the boat turns about arJ begins once, more, her tireless search for chandel obstructions. There are two such boats in the government employ on the lower Mississippi, the ether boat being the H. G. Wright, which operates Memphis and St. Louis. Under the second heading comes the work of the dredgeboats, tuge pumping affairs which suck up the silt and sand along with incalculable volumes of river water, and shoot the whole muddy mass through great iron tubing laid upon metallic pontoons far out into the channel of en the stream, where it will be carried away. The dredges are employed to deepen shallow places in the channel during periods of extreme low water, in order that navigation may be continued to the utmost possible limit. But the dredges are not the great features of Uncle Sam's river improvement service. They are useful but would seldom be required if the banks were held intact at all times. The fleet engaged by the government in preserving the banks of the Mississippi river, First and Second districts, extending from Cairo, 111., to the mouth cf White river, Arkansas, consists of seven steamers: Minnetonka, Chisca, Titan, Graham, Itasca, W. W. Rees and Tender No. 8. In addition the plant consists of six mattress barges, for weaving mattresses; four mooring barges, for holding mattresses while afloat ; forty barges of all kinds, nine for commodation of officers and laborers, one floating machine shop, one floating, carpenter shop, one storeboat, two hydraulic graders used in grading bank to a slope, two piledrivers for driving piles, one floating dock used in repairs to plant, one dredgeboat and twenty-fiv- e skiffs. quar-terboats Catarrh cannot be Cured by LOCAL AHri.I0ATIONH.as they enn not reach the seat of the disease.

Tho Interesting llfo there now la not the life of tho New England or the middle states by any means and never will be; but tho "day off" has como to be aa pleasant as heavy rains and humidity will permit. Sports havo followed the flag There aro many social gatherings after tho manner of social gatherings "at homo. Neither the athletic nor the dress suit la any longer a curiosity and there's a very considerable number of ball dresses. Sports and social doings havo become as regular features of the weekly summaries in tho tono r&por as they are In American dallies. Underscored days In the week are Saturday and Sunday. It's a round of socU! gayety Saturday evening and sports on Sunday. Those are the major diversions of tho great majority, Uaskctball must not be left out of any mention of the minor pleasures. All winter long the principal communities aro represented In the canal league, and two or threo games are played each week. Another major diversion for the preponderating male clomcnt of the zon population Is bowling. The ladies have their social clubs. The woman's club Is a big factor In tho social life 'at Panama and their parties. And there's the Tlvoli hotel at Ancon. The coming of the Y. M. C. A. was a fine thing for the white mon on the Isthmus. This organization established headquarters at Cristobal, Empire, Oorgona and Ancon. It followed out tho methods of Y. M. C. A.'s In the states. Social rooms furnished members with comfortable central gathering places. Hero were games and entertainments. The Y. M. C. A. took charge at once of track contests, organized toems and prepared a schedule of meets. On ovcry weekly schedule of social affairs at the Y. M. O. A. buildings dances are Important features. Concerts, lectures and theatricals do very well botween Monday and Saturday, but on tho last ovenlng of the week tho better class of Americans in the canal zone like to carry out some of their home customs and so they "dress up" and betake themselves to Y. M. C. A. hall the In this locality and, heat or no heat, humidity or no humidity, revel In their gayety preclsoiy as la "God's country." More and more muslcales are providing the thousands of Americans on the isthmus with pleasant evenings. In every community there's an orchestra, which finds mora engagements on hand than It can All, and then there's the Isthmian band, which goes from settlement to settlement, giving a concert In the plaza of Anone In the plaza of Oorcon gona night and In Cristobal the third night.
