New Enterprises–Bank, Lumber Mill.

LENOIR CITY, TENN., July 12.–Lenoir city has started in earnest on her career of progress.

Judge Rodgers and Mr. J. B. Hall, of Loudon, will open a bank here at once.

Messrs. Gorham, Hall and Stanton, of Ionia, Mich., were here yesterday. They will locate a large saw and planing mill. Some idea of the size of their plant may be gained when it is known that their freight bill or its transportation is $1,200.

Col. E. J. Sanford, president and managing director of the Lenoir City company, is having his office painted and nicely furnished.

One hundred hands will commence work on the streets next week.

The prospectus of Lenoir City is in the hands of the printer, and the map is in the hands of the lithographer.

The flour mil is running night and day.

Quite a party of prospectors were here from North Carolina yesterday.

Lenoir City will get there in great shape before the ides of November.


So much news, so little time.
