That our town should have any ap
pearance of tidiness it is absolutely
necessary that the cattle should be kept
off the streets. Moreover leaving de
cency out of the question, the great in
convenience of having cows and bull
calves running through every opening
and often breaking through fences,
should bo such as to influence the own
ers out of regard for others, to look af
ter their stock. However for just such
people the village has provided a pound
and fines. And we urge upon the town's
people to protect themselves and proper
ty against these people who so totally
disregard their neighbors' rights. To
the boys we might suggest that they
are neglecting a good opportunity for
We notice that the town has been
pretty thoroughly saturated with the
advertisements of a Mexican lottery.
Lest any should deem it the part of
wisdom to accept these glowing chanc
es for sudden wealth, we will warn
him beforehand of the precarious con
dition in which lottery business finds
itself at present. To show the way
public sentiment has worked against a
long established lottery, that in Louis
iana, we will review its history of the
past few months. After repeated trials
in the legislature to pass a bill granting
to the state lottery organization a char
ter for a term of years, the legislature
has been compelled to adjourn without
being able to secure the two-thirds ma
jority necessary to overcome the (Jover
nor's veto. In Congress, again, there
will be, in all probability, a bill paused
ere long prohibiting all lottery corres
ponck'iice from the mails and expresses.
This would completely paralyze the lot
tery business. Now, if any body sees a
way of getting their money after they
have faithfully paid for their ticket
they are welcome to try it.
Until our country neighbors, who
come to our village to have their "rack
ets," learn thatour pnople are thorough
ly decided to put a stop to t hese night
disturbances they will never cease.
Xow our people are decided. These
so called "boys" driv.- ;uv;ir j eaceable
people who w ould otherwise come h
to do their trading during the eveni:;;
and moreover hinder our town's people
in the pursuit of their own business or
pleasure. At such times the town is at
the mercy of these "toughs". Fi: uiers
can not trade, merchants can not sell,
nor can livery-men rent their 1. ,ses.
This evil will continue to grow u.iless
stopped. And now is the time to stop
it. With this end in view, we now ap
peal to the bar-keepers of the town as
townsmen in a legalized business to use
all instrumentalities in their power to
bring it about that their places ot busi
ness are kept as respectable as others. It
is nothing to ask. It ismerely such a re
quest as they might make of others,
who were uselessly injuring their busi
ness. We make this appeal only on
business principles to business men,
in the interest of business men. Let it.
not be regarded in any other light: We
know that the request of a proprietor
lias inestimable weight in determining
the manner in which his patrons con
duct themselves. And so, may this re
quest be taken in the same spirit of
fairness in which it has been made.
No rebuff has been meant. This is the
business request of a business com
munity. DEAD CAPITAL.
We desire an enterprising progress
and continually urge it. A healthful
and vigorous enterprise is necessary to
a new town which has any aspiration
to something greater than a collection
of houses. We believe that there is
such an "esprit" in this town, although
it seems at times dormant. If we were
asked how we were confident of this
we would point to our past success.
However, there i3 existing in tins town
a state of a Hairs that tends greatly to
paralyze our business interest just to
the extent that it is existent. It is
because there is so much property of
one sort or another which is totally out
of the business current. It rests in the
hands of investors who have purchased
it to hold until the enterprise of others
about it shall raise its value. Although
this may, from one point of view, be a
part of good financial management, it
is nevertheless the ruin of many of
lesser fortunes who must struggle
over these barriers. Let us bo under
stood. It is not the capital that is in
vested in live business of any kind, it
is that capital which might be desig
nated as "dead capital" which, invested
in real-estate in our midst is only wait
ing for the work of others to accrue to
its value. When property is locked up
in this way, by being held at a figure
beyond the average business advent
urer, it is just so much life shut out of
the town. Some may argue that such
an investment in the town, really aug
ments the value of other property there;
as It argues a ready market. But the
value of property might bo tempor
arily raised in that case, we can imagine,
and the business interests of the town
ultimately killed. On the whole we
wish to discourage such waiting in
vestments in our town. We want live
stores .and mills. Against what is, we
can only complain but we can show a
desire in our town for live progress.
THE I. 0. 0. F. MEETING.
Suuday was a pleasant day and even
before the time set for the exercises to
begin, Central Hall was crowded save
the seats left for the members of the
Lodge. On the table was a pretty dis
play of flowers which lent their sweet
savors and blending color to enliven
the dull interior of the Hall. A little
after three the Odd-fellows made their
appearance in a body. They marched
into the room and took the seats as
signed to them. John Hallock Noble
flrand, took the chair. After the Hall
had become quiet Mr. Hallock came
forward and announced the first order
of the program. It was an anthem by
the choir. "Hear our prayer," which was
rendered in a manner that showed that
the singers had thoroughly prepared
themselves for the occasion. As the
last echoes of the music died away the
Chaplain, It. W. Menerey. followed with
a prayer during which the hall was as
still as death. Then came the second
anthem by the choir, ".Jehovah Ileigns."
W. II. Palmer was then introduced.
Among other things he said: "Odd
fellowship was organized in England
in 1700, and introduced into America
in 18li April 20. This order was or
ganized by Thomas Wilder, at Ualtl
more, and was called the Washington
Lodge." He also said that "by their
fruits you should know them. That
"they had spent 35,000 in charities the
past year." Moreover "it people only
knew more what these interlocked
links meant they would themselves be
better. The middle link is love. That
is the cardinal virtue."
After the anthem, "The Lord is
watching o'er his people," W. 11. (iillett
was introduced. He spoke upon the
subject announced "The moral and
social benefit of fraternal organization."
lie said among other things: Friend
ship, Love and Truth, the links of odd
fellowship are the three elements
necessary in life." He drew illustra
tions from the life of Christ; and in
speaking of David and Jonathan ho
said that "that was the friendship that
odd-fellows loved to imitate, ut joye
he said "It would be unbecoming to try
to explain the heights attained, the
depths explored, and the breadths em
braced by the melting attribute with
out first mentioning the love of (Jod.
We find that all nations that have ac
cepted the love of Cod live in an atmos
phere (morally speaking), infinitely
above that of their neighbors." He
also said that "There were two classes
that hurt religion. First the fanatic
who believes that all a man has to do
is to stand before an audience and open
his mouth and the Lord will fill it. If
he fills it" r.aid he "it will be with noth
ing sensible. Second, men like Jnger
soll who forget that liible teacnes
nrnorrssinn. Moreover a man with an
excellent education must not ignore
the needs of his soul. And a man that
has given his soul to Cod must not fear
the advances of science." "Truth is
closely interwoven with Friendship and
Love; and the Lodge is an institution
for imparting it to adults as the school
to children. We must learn to feel
the responsibility of others' woes. And
how shall we do this unless we are
brought into closer contact than that
of every day life. These orders are
meant to beget, nourish and develop
onr interest in our fellows, that if we
love (iod we should love one another."
After the parting ode the meeting was
dismissed, which was altogether most
enjoyable and instructive. The odd
fellows then formed into line and
marched to their hall.
AT PALDI'S HALL.
A rLEASING ENTEKTAIXMKNT BY THE
YOUNO PEOPLE OF II ROCK WAY.
Tuesday evening we listened to a
verv nleasinz little drama by the young
ladies and gentlemen of Urockway in
Ancreline Paldi's Hall. Miss Paldi offi
ciated below and dealt out candy, etc. to
the hungry. The Hall had been very
tastily trimmed with boughs: and every
thine had been done to make the stage
in particular, all that the capacity
would allow of it. After some little
delay, caused by the tardiness of the
orchestra from l ale. tne exercises open
ed with music. Then followed the
drama "Ten Knights in a liar-room."
This, of course, is a temperance parody

had such a run several years ago. We
should say that the choice of the play
was not very nappy, lr sometning
more amusing had been chosen it
would have had a more encouraging
effect for future productions. However,
as it was, it was very well carried
throughout, some showing considerable
dramatic talent. The death-bed scene
of little Mary was particularly affecting.
We have been promised more of these
entertainments now that the young
people have a hall. We hope it is so.
Amateur theatricals nave an euucaiing
influence. And none will deny that
there is not something about these little
actors that makes them pleasing to
listen to in a different way from pro
fessionals. After the drama Wl II.
Foster and J. 1). Jardine repeated a
farce which was loudly applauded.
The Hall was then surrendered to
dancing. All went away pleased.

The transition from long, lingering
and painful sickness to robust health
marks an epoch in the life of the indi
vidual. Such a remarkable event is
treasured in the memory and the agency
whereby good health has been attained
is gratefully blessed. Hence It is that so
much is heard in praise of Electric Hit
ters. So many feel they owe their
restoration to health, to the use of the
Great Alterative and Tonic. If you
are troubled with any disease of Liver.
Kidneys or Stomach, of long or short
standing you will surely find relief by
use of Klectric lUtters. Sold at- GOc.
