THE PRESIDENT’S LETTER I The President Expresses His Re grets That He Cannot Visit Huntsville. — The following letter from the Chief Magistrate of the country was received Saturday by the Hon. Ed. I Mastin, City Mayor, in response to the citizens’ invitation forwarded to him by the May or, some time ago: Exe< W lion Ed. I. Mastin, Mayor, Huntsville, Alabama: Dear Sir: —I have received the ^ vi tation kindly tendered me on beh at the citizens of Huntsville, to visit the city during my contemplated trip to the West and South. I am in receipt of like invitations from many other localities; and I have delayed action thereupon until I could de finitely determine which of them my lime and positive engagements already made, would permit me to accept. To my re gret, I now find it necessary to send to many of them, replies similar to this. The trip, to be undertaken for the pur pose of fulfilling my promises to visit St. Louis and Atlanta. The dates of these visits are fixed, and as both are included in a single trip, the time intervening be tween these dates, is substantially all that can be devoted to visiting other cities. It is|a physical imnossibility in these circumstances to accept all the kind and cordial invitations which have been ten dered me; and I have been obliged to mark out a route of travel, and select as stopping places, sucli cities as are on the way, or which for other controlling reas ons it seems most desirable to visit at this time. I am sorry that this plan precludes the possibilty of my acceptance of vour invi tation; and I trust that the good people of Huntsville will not attribute my fail ure to comply with their wishts, so warmly and heartily expressed, to any want of appreciation of their regard or to any lack of desire to be their guest. Yours, very truly. Grover Cleveland. Wedding Bella. Brooks—Baldridge.—Thursday Sept. 15th, 1887, at 8 o’clock p. m. at the Methodist Episcopal Church, by the Rev. Geo. W. F.

OIK FAIR. Capt. James H. Bone, the efficient Secretary of the Fair, is busy sending Hotices and advertisements to all the newspapers in North Alabama, invita tions &c., all abont our Fair, which commence on the 11th of October. Some people—no doubting Thomas’—say “Why, where are you going to put the people and take care of them after you get them here?” It is true that the Huntsville Hotel will not then be ready for guests, but we have two excellent Hotels besides, and a large number of good boarding houses and any number of hospitable citizens who propose to throw wide open their doors and enter tain the strangers that will be here. That is the right spirit and that is a sure way to help a town Make strangers feel at home, and they will speak up for us and even come back and liye with us —It may be mentioned as another proof ®f the efficacy of advertising, that a lost breastpin advertised for in the Gazette last Saturday was handed to the Editor the following Monday. _ Blocking the Path.

The Reason Why He Mourned. “Whydo you mourn, my sonny?” The gray haired editor said, Laying his hand most gently Down on the bowed young head. "Have you some grave heart trouble— Some friend that has passed away ? Look up, there is hope beyond yon— The hope of eternal day.” Still with bowed head he sat there Motionless, lost in gloom— Sometimes sobbing softly As if life had lost its Nfoorn. "Cannot I help you, sonny— Comfort you any ? Speak ?” The small boy lifted his head and walled “Out settool begun this week.” I). Employment and Intelligence iilllei, S. J. B. Carter and IT. C.
