Tie tender endearments are brokeii
That. united us, darling, for years;
Thy lips their hlat fond words have
And naught Is now left me but tears.
So sadly the night wind is sighig,
And so sadly the moon beams above;
iu sympathy both seem replying
To the miond of my heart for its love.
But ah not a thought canli borrow
From the night wind or moonbeam
The measureless depth of my sorrow,
In this awful, relentless farewell
[For the Messenger.
MR. EDITOR: The ''local items''
of this neighborhood are about as
follows: Wheat and oats badly
damaged, and still damaging.
Much of the corn is gone, "root
and branch.'' Mneh cotton has
died from ''sore-shin." Bal
ance corn and cotton a two week's
"journey in the wilderness."
Vine and other truck patches flour
ishing. Gardens fino-vegeta
bles plenty.- E"mpty corn cribs
and meat houses plenty, to rent,
cheap for cash or barter. Pas
tures good and stock doing well.
----Dewberry pies have been
slaughtered in an unmerciful way
of late, and blackberry an,1id fapple
pies are beginning to share the
saime fte.--Nearly every week
brings out a iew candidate. At!
the counting of votes sonie will
say I came out "too late." For a
candidate (good clever fellow), to
rin $10 worth and "get a beating"
this hard year, is a job. I am al
ways sorry for a (lefeated candi
date. Democrats always submit,
but it hurts. But to return to
su)ject: We're about out of whip
plorwill's this season ; snak es are
agreeably scarce with us ; sqnix -
miore plentifulI than I have seen
them for' several years ; I 'slayed'
wo squirrels on the 4th ; moles
andl crows in abundance ; "~Winks
and MN'easels,'' as Aunt AnnIy calls
hem, have killed over two hutn
dIred chickens in this neig.borhood
recenitly. A patI y comp losed of
ten men and boys, and eight (logs,
slaughtered one mink the otheri
evening, making noise enough tot
have slaughtered the largest hear
On Balsam Mountain. TJhe pro0
p~osition is to sow 1argely of stock
tur Inips this season.---Huck Ken-!
niemrore is nearly out of 1hees-nas
only f'orty stands ; lhe also has the
finest garden of cabbage I ever'
saw in this country. Most eve
ry body is r'aisinug somxie tobacco
this year. Whxen we learn to
prIoduce, as nearly as possible, w hat
we need to consume, theni we will
have very nearly conquered hard
times. If you see any candi
dates 'looking blue' tell them ii
