Somebody drew a hundred thousand
dollars in the Louisrillu lottery the
other day, and a few astounded Orange
burgers were talking about it pear
Patrick's store. TI10 mention of this
cuormous sum at first struck every man
dumb. Finally they rallied a little, aud
each bogau to wonder boW ho would
feel and act if ho were su Idonly to
come into the possession of such a pile
of money. Ooe man said he would take
two doctors, go straight home and to
bed, have his head shaved, try a warm
bath, bleeding aud mustard plasters, and
stay in a dark rouui for a week, to pro
veut the thiug goiug to his brain
Auothcr fellow said he could stand it in
small doseB, say $10,000 at a tinio, but
would certainly bo apprehensive if the
whole sum came at onco. Othor men
had other, but not very different, ideas
on tho subject, tho general opiuiou
seeming to be that if any Orangeburger

run a terrible risk of brain fevor.

I am glnd Mr. Editor, to see that the

of our principal thorough-faros. Let us
hear about the "market" occasionally,
so as the people wont forget it.
Mr. Editor : ? I noticed in the Tinut
an editorial in regard to the proposed
new street on the south side of Ku?scll
Street, which speaks something about
"self interest." Now sir I am utterly
surprised that a public journal would
for a moment think that anything for
tho interest of a growiug Town like
Ornngeburg was merely for self interest
I nin certain that at least a hundred
more names would have been added to
the list published in your public spirited
journal if the list had been more general
ly circulated. So, go ahead with the

and I will guarantee that it will add an
