?It was reported that a mad dog
ran through town on Tuesday. It is a
hard matter to learn the real truth
about these so-called mad dogs, for
there are always some excitable,
nervous people who are ready to believe
that every dog that appears on
the streets has hydrophobia. It is a
dangerous thing for a dog to show
himself on the streets now, for all
dogs are looked upon with suspicion.
Itjs, of course, best for people not to
ran any risks, bnt if the orders of the
intend&nt is obeyed there will be very
little danger.

until (be official count showed tbat the

A BAJRX BURXED.
0;i Saturday night at about nine
| o'clock the large barn on Mr. A. WilliI
ford's plantation. about two miles
from towa, was destroyed by fire. In
the barn were about' fifteen males,
fifteea or twenty head of cattle, 1,000
bashels of cotton seed and several
hundred pounds of hay. The people
who diseovered the fire succeeded in
saviog iha mules and cattle, but the
hi; and other things in the barn were
[destroyed. Mr. Williford does not
know how the fire-originated, bnt does
not think that it was incendiary.
The fire was a very large one and
the whole town was illuminated. The
bam was not insured and the lost is
considerable.
Robbed the Grave.
a dtflrminor incident of which Mr
John Oliver of Philadelphia, was the
subject, is narrated by him as follows:
"I was in a most dreadfol condition.
My skin was almost yellow, eyes
sunken, tongue coated, pain continually
in back and sides, no appetite?
gradutlly growing weaker day Dy day.
Three physicians had given me up.
Fortunately, a friend advised trying
'Electric Bitters,' and to my great joy
and surprise, the first bottle made a
decided* improvement. I continued
their use for three weeks, and am now
a well msn. I know they saved my
life and robbed the grave of auother
victim." No one should fail to try
them. Only 50- cents per bottle at
McMaster Co.'s drug store. 6

SORROWING FOR A sjRIEND.
It is a sad and sorrowing message to
all who enjoyed the friendship of oar
dear beloved friend Mr. Johu Turner
to learn of his sad death. He wa9 a
noble young man, fall ef all good
qualitias and one of the best of husbands,
sons and brothers. His place
will be hard to fill. It is so hfcrd to
realize that or.e so bright and active in
business of life should now be numbered
with the dead. His memory
will ha enshrined iu the hearts of all
that knew him, for he was a noble
specimen of man.
"Johnnie, thou w~s mild and lovely,
Gentle as the sammer breeze,
Gentle as the air of evening,
When it floats among the trees.
Peaceml by thy silent slumber;
Peaceful ia the grave so low;
Thon no more will join oar number,
Thou no more our song shall know.
Dearest Johnnie, thou hast left us,
Here thy loss we deeply feel;
Bet in God that hast bereft ns,
He ca? all oar sorrows heal,
i Y=t again we hope to meet thee,
When tbe day ot lire bat ilea,
Then in heaven with joy to greet
thee,
There no farewell tear is sbed."

Ridgeway were delighted by ihe performance
of "Finrigan's Fortune."
Tha play was produced by ths Ridgeway

way is a bright aggregation of theatrical
stars.
For a long time expectation wag on
the que vire and great interest had
been awakened in this play, and the

by the large audience which
greeted their appearance on Thursday
It was perhaps the largest audience
that has assembled in Ridgeway on
such an occasion tor many a day. The
home was crowded and enthusiastic,
and well might they be; the play was
in itself a strong one, and was in
every respect all that could be desiied.
It was a good play well rendered.
One ieldom has the good fortune to
see so much good acting among amateurs.
Taken all in all this rendition
of "Finnigan's Fortune" reflect great
credit on the psrformers and the town.
Mr. McEachern, in the title roll, was
eminently a suscess. jus every worti
and geatare showed his thorough appreciation
and comprehension of the
character he was impersonating., At
times he became pathetic and held his
auditors by the spell of his fart, and
yet again he tonched the springs of
wit and hnmor, which brought forth

Jake, the keeper of a first-claes
Dutch saloon, was without doubt a
most happy and artistic impersonation,
and Mr. George Moore, in this character,
gave evidence of histrionic talent
of the highest degree. Jake's advent
was from first to last the eignal of
mirth and applause.
And now what can w-t say rf preny

Lady H&nna, coo, won laurels for
herself, and it will be long before
those who saw Miss Marie Moore in
this character will forget the thrill of
pleasure they felt whenever she appeared.
Messrs. A. T. Moore as Raffety,

serving of the highest praise. Bat
when all were so good, if it can be
said that one excelled, it is to Mrs.
Blair the palm belongs. In the role
of Mrs. Finnigan Mrs. Blair gave
evidence of theatrical ability of the
highest order. From the moment the
curtain went up until its fill she
caught aiid held the eympatny oime
audience. This presentation of Mrs.
Blair's was indeed the perfec:ion <?1
art assisted by beauty. It was difficult
for the beholder to decide whether
