E. S. Chandler, Secretary.
For the Legislature -Man-,
The reports of the proceedings a:
Monticello and Salem both came
too late for our last weekly.
Baby shows are the fashion now,
but as long as mothers continue to
nurse their little ones with lauda
num or other opiates, they cannot
expect their babies to look bright.
If your baby needs medicine got a
good and harmless one such as Dr.
Bull's Baby Syrup. 25 cents per
COMING TO THE FRONT.--At a
colored Sunday-school celebration
in this county, Israel Byrd during
the course of his remarks said that
he hoped the men would be as
prompt in coming to the polls in
November as the children were in
attending Sunday-school. It is also
said that Joe Thompson will be
run by the Radicals for the Legis
lature, and that a full ticket will. be
put in the field. Meetings of the
faithful will soon be held all over
the county. The hydra-headed
monster is again showing itself.

CEDAR CREE ITEMs-All quiet on
the Creek. Everybody is about
done laying by. The crops are
tolerably good, notwithstanding the
severe drouth. And now the grassy
season is over, send us the candhi
dates ; we are prepared to hear
them all. We wvonder if any more
will come out. We hope so--not
near enough of them yet. We've a
strong notion to run oureelf, if wve
knew where to run to.
At the last meeting of Cedar
Creek Club the amendment to the
constitution suggested by the
Executive Committee was unani
mously adopted. We were favored
with speeches from Messrs. Wood
ward, Gaillard, McKinstry and
.Davis, who gave us some sound
advice, and in our opinion did much
* to remove some petty prejudice
that existed with some of us. Al
though a considerable portion of
our olub were not present to hear
the above named gentlemen, much
good was done to unite some re
fractory spirits. So when the time
comes count Cedar Creek all right.
We were suffering severely for
rain a few days ago, but on last
Friday evening we were visited
with a heavy rain, wind and some
hail. The wind damaged crops
considerably, blowing down corn,
We notice in yotur paper the

* We would like very much to hear
S from our comrades on the subject.
And now tell us if it is a'violation
