Manager Lloyd has booked for Monday evening; December 9th,the great railroad melodrama. Lincoln J. Carter's "Fast Mail," which will be given a grand scenic production, that in mairy respects promises to be one of the most remarkable ever in this city. The play is constructed on strictly modern principled. The interest starts at a terrific pace, and is not allowed lo flag for an instant. The incidents are made doubly thrilling by the mechanical and scenic effects that are employed. There is the rattle and clatter of a patrol wagon as it comes down the street, the whistles, bells, etc, of a Mississippi steamboat leaving her wharf, moonlight effects on the river, theglowing furnaces of the boat, and ilie explosion and break ing up of the steamer. A gigantic piece of real water scenery is pre sented in the Niagara Falls' scene, where the enormous cataract is represented with the roan.ofthe water, the seething foam and the rising mist. A freight train of fourteen cars is run across the stage. The caHjoose is lighted and the engine carries the engineer and fireman. It is everywhere acknowl edged to be an unsurpassed achieve ment in railroad scenic effect. There seems to be no -limit to the possibilities of stage mechanism, but -The Fast Mail" seems to have covered all the ground up to the present date. The company is highly spoken of, and the play is well constructed, with a strong tinge of comedy to offset the serious elements. JiAxiTELlT MELA1TGE . Messrs..

Some who did not come with the expectation of taking part in the programme kindly did so wmn requested and all who at tended went home feeling that they, had a pleasant time. Hereafter we hope to see a larger number present-from Maxwell and from the Island also. Let us try to make the literary society as much cL a success and as interesting as it was list winter.

Allen, formerly superin tendent of the national cemetery at Fort McPherson but now holding a similar position at Nancy, Ken tucky, has written a letter to the members of S. A. Douglas Post of this city, from which we make the following excerpts: After a month's sojourn in old Kaintuck, I will attempt to address you. "We arrived here safely on October 14th. We.found the road from Somerset to the cemetery rough and hilly. The cemetery is situated about nine miles west of Somerset on a part of the battle ground of Logan's cross road. We visited the grounds where the main part of the battle was fough t, and found unmistakable evidence of the battle We found the earthworks and rifle pits in a good state of preservation. The shell and solid shot marks are still to be seen on the large oak trees, and we stood under the tree where Gollicoffer fell shot by Colonel Fry and near this tree we found a trench where sixty rebels are buried. Our thoughts went back to '63 and '64 and we could almost hear the rebel yell again. The cemetery .here is beautiful. It embraces three and one-half acres of rolling land, has shrubs and rose bushes in profusion. The evergreen trees consist of cedar, Scotch pine. American spruce, Irish juniper and magnolia. The decidu ous trees are maple, elm. buckeye, ironwocd, apple peach and plum. There are 716 interments in this cemetery, S49 of vvhom are Known and 367 unknown. The lodge is the same style as the one at Mc Pherson. We think the climate is fine At this writing (Nov. 27th) the rose bushes have not lost their foliajre. We have had a number of frosts and several freezes and it has rained a number of times. The people we haye met are kind and courteous. They seem to be engaged more in the lumber bnsl ness than in farming, the timber here being,. fine. We find quite a number of old soldiers, and there is a post at Somerset. Dr. A. P.
