Our enterprising hardware mer
chants, Messrs. Strong & Gibbons,
have purchased the hardware es

Wo Invite discussion and communica
tions, on the'eause of Temperance. The
murders and other crimes, and the many
rows and fusses that occur at all our pub
lie assemblies In Vinton county, are mostly
all attributable to the immoderate use of
LIqour. The criminal expenses of our
county is nine tenth of it to be credited
to tbo same cause. Surely every tax-payer,
every man, woman and child is directly
Interested la stopping this abuse of ardent
spirits. We hope the people will net in this
matter at once.
New Year's Eve Ball.
At the Court House, was the largest that
ever met before In McArthur, The Lon
donderry String Band discoursed most ex
cellent music, and the evening passed elfin
good order, except a slight misunderstand
ing, about 9 o'clock, with Capt. Whiskey,
who forgot the rules, as usual, and came
near marring the harmony of the evening;
as it was, there were only two or three
knock-downs, and some dozen struck, but
nobody knew who hit anybody, and the
dance went on, and continued to the
-"Wee sma' hours beyant the twa,"
when all retired in harmony and the best
of good nature. We sincerely hope our
young gentlemen will not hereafter permit
whisky to be in attendance at our balls.
Respect for the ladies present should al
ways require any gentleman to abstain
from Ms cups on such, occasions.
Dyspepsia, or Indigestion.
This complaint, of all others, is of th
most ooinmon occurrence, and pervades ev
ery rank of society. The usual symptoms
are, want of appetite, sudden and transient
.distensions of the stomach, frequent eructa
tions, heartburn, stomach pains, and fre
quent costiveness and diarrhoea. The
causes are numerous, tha'most common be-
ing luxurious diet and want of sufficient
exercise, excessive menial anxiety, want of
pure air, etc. To effect a certain cure, it
is jieeessary to adopt regular habits, use
moderation la eating and drinking, and re
store -fhe tone of the stomach with Roback'i
Stomach Hitlers. If the bowels are cons'i-
Sated, use Rob&ek's Blood Pills In moderate
oses, sufficient to produce slight evacuations

Sunday School Festival.
was a very entertain
ment at the Methodist Church on Xew
Years night. We call It a Festival for
want of any other name to designate It.
It was given for the benefit of the Sunday
School Scholars, and, to them, the princi
pal feature was the 'Christmas Tree," and
the many beautiful presents with which it
was decoritted. Music, and recitations by
the little ones were succeeded by the dis
tribution of the presents to the different
classes. At the close of the 'entertainment
Mr, Barnes, tho popular superintendent of
our Schools, was presented by his scholars,
with a Biblcand Writing desk, Miss Jones,
in few and appropriate words made the
presentation In behalf of the School and
received for them the thanks and gratelul
response of Mr Barnes. The Church was
crowded to Its utmost, and every one went
away well pleased with tho entire performance.
