-Mr. William Roche is quite sick
at his home in this place. It is rhoped
that he will soon be better.
-The crossings on Main street have
been vastly improved by baving
crushed granite put on them. In wet
weather these crossings are in a dread
ful condition, but this will no longer
be the case since the granite has been
put down.

town where people can get these
stsmpa except at the bank and the
bank does not really keep them for

glad tnat they can procure these
stamps without having to go to the
bank. Frequently the bank officers
are very buoy and it is inconvenient
to them and inconvenient for the
buyers to bAy stamps at the bank.

A SHOOTIN~G SCRAPE.
On Thursday morning t wo negroes,
afas Fora and John Cason, got into
difficulty on the street near the
yurt house. Earlier in- the morning
>me words had passed between the
o anid it is supposed that they had
~one off and armed themselves pre
aratory to a second meeting. Ruans
~'ord, who had two pistols, fired at
ohn Cason, who had one, but before
other shot could be fired by either
f the men the police and other officers
tf the law had arrested the men.I
hey were carried before the council
nt bailed themselves out until Frida7
hen they were again taken before
e mayor who fined Rufns Ford $2e,
t John Cason was dismissed. It is
fortunate thing that the shot fired
y the negro did no damage for such
ckless shooting might easily have
sulted in a serious hurt to some one.
A CARD.
Mr. Editor: I desire to write a short
iece explaining my connection with
he Upper Longtown school. I taught
e above mentioned EChcol from the
elfth of September until Christmas
~eing apprised of opposition on the
)art of'some of the patrons, I went to
e of the trustees and conferred
iith him; he suggested the advisa
)ility of calling a meeting of the
tatrons in order to ascertain their
ntiments in regard to the opposition.
[he patrons met and eleven of them
roted to retain me as .teacher, five of
em cast dissenting votes. During
e Christmas holidays, I received a
etter from the trustees in wLich they
:ated that they had concluded to sus
cnd my school until they could get
he patrons harmonized. Thinking
erhaps my friends were not aware of
e trustees decision to suspend the
chool, I felt that it was my duty to
ake the train, go back and confer!
'ith my supporters, and inform them
)f the action of the trustees. I talked
ith my friends and told them that I
as enough Denmocratic in sentiment
Lud principle to believe that the ma
rity should rn'e in all question'
,ertaininag to the public welfare, bu:
tt the same time I was too inde
,endent to push mnyszly on an) op
oing minority in school matters.1
Since my return houme I have writ
en to some of the patrons with whom
did not have time to talk in reference
> ihe subject under consideration. I
ld my friends that I did not intend
o desert them, but I was frank to
a that I was perfectly willing to
Lender my resignation if it would be
nstrmental in bringing abont that so
tuch need~ed harmony. I felt that 1
id been njustly criticised and mis
represented by one or two of the
patrnrs. Had I continueld to teach
h scnool I thought perhaps some nf
the patrons who were opposed to me
teacher would keep their children
ii :be school to be the cause or some
oI t" oatrons keeping their children
31.e and thereby deprive them of
Mo C;rtunity to improve their edu
can. . Though I had been mistreated
by. or two of the patrons, I felt
S -. ( c d rise above the plane of
;e -ess und tender my resignation
.i.r that the patrons might, if
."e, elect some one who would
a:ceptable to all who are interested
ini ti school. Some of the patrons
to 4'ex that they bad had some of the
bIP ta : chers in the county and soma
of t patrons were opposed to them
a'Idi not send tbe:r children. That
I ein ;e condition of affairs that had
exissihd heretofore I felt that the little
oppovition was not any relection on
I myrelf. I feel very much indebted to
most of the people of that community
for the kindness sbown me during my
s!y in that section. I have made
soaine goed friends in the Longtown
comau nitv, and I regret that I did not
visit the people more than I did.
Thinking that I would continue to
teach there after Christmas and would
visit all of those who had invited me
to partake of their hospitality, hence
the reason I did not visit the homes of
all -Ybo had invited me. I return
many thanks to the families with
whom I boarded, I shall always feel
very grateful for their hospitality.
In conclusion lot me say to the
levrIo patrons who so zealously sup
ported me in the contest just before
Christras, that I shall always very
bigily appreciate the obligations under
wiinh you have thereby placed me.
Shold the opportunity ever occur I
will 'ak.- great pleasure in doing
whit var I can to reciprocate for
%Vol thu conferred. It is my earnest
p. a. r to God that I may never prove
rec.-e:d~ to my friends. I have no
personal animosity toward those who
worked and voted against me. I have
no desire to retaliate for any injustice. I
In the language of the immortal Blaine,
If one were to map out a course of
retaliation and carry it into practical
operation they would not live long
enough to reap the reward of their
efforts. If they were to succeed in
that respect I imagine that the re
worre of conscience, if they had any,
would be a great punishmen
I :to with best wishes for good
will, narmony and prosperity among
P.ll thei people
