Boft crabs were caught the past season

Capts. G. P. Squirea, F. A. Gunby and
J. N. Wllder, W. D. Wilder, T. J. Down

The roads throughout the lower
Northcrn Neck, up unti! Wedncsday's

There had been little or no wet weather
previous to the rccent frecze, and bo the
roads were not cu' up when the freeze
set in and hardened them.
The Lancaster correspondcut of the
l*rtc Ixince has this tosay: "A young
man of Llvely Oak neighborhood, and
not long ago from Cuba, asoldier brave?
yet uot brave enough to resist the dis
appointmenl of a rejection from his lady
love, or rather one who, he had flattered
himself would listen to bis appeal?
undertook to take his own life by an
overdose of laudaaum. By dint of he
roic treatment his life was saved, but he
tbreateua to take advantage of the first
opportunlty for another attempt."
A story is told of a ceutral Lancaster
awain who is the acknowledged beau of
all the haadsome "achool marms" that
hrighlen that sectioc with their wit aud
preaence, to the effect that his courting
horse and buggy have lately been "hoo
dooed." The flrst iutimationjof this dire
affiiction waa given wheu a negro giri
who had borrowed the team to drive up
from the wharf, dropped dcad in the
buggy before reaching home. This sure
ly must have invited the evil gecius
which haa caused a continuous run of
casualitic8. We a?.e not permitted to re
count these laiter?especially those that
record the indiaposition of f;dr ladiea
when brave euough to attempt a drive
in the ill-fated equlpage?but it can be
said that the swain has decided to dis
card his turnout.
