Tho picnic and first annual moot
ing of tho Farmers' and Laborers'
Union at Cowell Chapel yesterday
was a very pleasant a.lair. lucre
wero people present from nearly
every part of tho county, and the
crowd present was variously esti
mated from two thousand to twenty
five hundred people. Stato lect
urer Tucker was present, and his
speech concerning the good, pros
perity, and happiness of farm life,
nsted for nearly two hours and a
mlf. Ho is an entertaining speak
er, and held well tho attention of
lis largo audience.
After Mr. Tucker had concluded
lis speech, a splendid basket din
ner was spread out on the ground
)eforo the hungry crowd and every
body was invited to cat of the good
hings to their entire satisfaction,
which was gladly accepted. There
was plenty to eat, and tho crowd a
good naturcd one. The good peo
ple of that neighborhood are notod
or their friendliness and generous
lospitalities, and gained further

As Harris McAuley was leaving
the picnic grounds late yesterday
afternoon, his horse in some man
ner turned the road cart over, and
for a few moments, to the horror of
those near the accident, a stampede
among tiio passim: vehicles and
stock hitched near seemed una
voidable, but the prompt action of
a few cool-headed men prevented
any serious accident.
The dust somewhat interfered
with tho pleasures of the day. It
floated over the trees and under
growth, almost concealing their
rich, green '.foliage; it clustered
around your eyes and proboscis
it nestled in your hair; it silently
drifted down your spinal column,
and found favor with your boots;
tho juveniles rejoiced when they
reared a mountain of it for one of
their number to scatter to tho four
winds by running through it and
kicking it up with their feet; the
air was laden with it ; and you were
continually reminded of it in a
manner that impressed you with
the fact that there was plenty of it
and that it had come to stay.
Quite a ripple of excitement and
curiosity was created early in the
morning when it became known
that a Gretna Green affair was on

tempt was made by A. M. Cooloy,

previous to spirit away Miss Julia
Utloy, daughter of John Utley, re
siding in the southeast part of the
county, but their plans wero frus
trated. Yesterday morning Miss
Utley, accompanied by her brother,
attended tho picnic. Mr. Cooley
also went to the picnic, and when
Miss Julia's brother left her for a
-yew moments to go to another part
f l)f the grounds, Mr. Cooloy realized
- fthat the supreme moment was at
hand and hastily summoning J. M.
Lashlee, esq., tho twain were made
one in a jilfy. "When Mr. Utloy
was made aware of what had taken
place, his wrath knew no bounds,
but ho was pursuaded to submit to
the inevitable, and the happy couple
received many hearty cougratula-
tio:1. firm Uh:.- friends.
