It is gratiiying to us to be able to state
to the public that the Fair authorities
are manfully at work perfecting each and
every detail, and arrangement by which
all can be assured of a complete success
at the coming exhibit. The public spirit
ed people of the different counties, and
especially the county committees have
an important work before them, how
ever, which must not be neglected, to-
wit : to bring out their products for ex
hibition, and induce as many as possible
to turn out and take a part in this work
which means so much for this section.
It is hoped and believed that many
thousand strangers will be here to see
what we will have to show, and we need
hardly suggest or say how much interest
we have, as a section in this occasion.
We would excite if possible .your , sec
tional pride the love vou have for vour
beautiful mountain country, your fertile
soil, your health-giving climate, pure
water and every inducement you have
in doing your utmost for an object and
enterprise which is Iraught with more

for which you have been called to act.
Ihink not in taking some pains and ex
pense in aiding in this most worthy en
terprise that is time lost and expense for
nothing verily no. By putting your
shoulders to ' the wheels and helping
roll them up the mil you are sure to teel,
much gratification after the work is done
that some of the glory is yours, for we
are well assured that a grand success
awaits the efforts of those energetic offic
ials and friends of the cause who are
working so untireingly in this matter.
The premiums are very liberal indeed
especially on agricultural products and
there can be but little doubt that the ex
hibit in this line will be one worth all
your trouble to see. Let the countv
committees appeal to their iriends to get
up their products and articles to be ex
hibited, and see to it that, as many as
possible come and take a part in the
grand rally which we trust our mountain
people have determined upon.
We commend the following to the at
tention of our readers : Dr. M. Lytle's
Elixir we find recommended very kigbly
for bo well complaints, and we most earn
estly urge our people to provide them
selves with either it or some equally
good remedy for Diarrhoea and like com
plaints, for the peculiar weather of this
season is well calculated to produce such
troubles, and they should be attended
to at once, or they may become unman

The Alternative Mandamus. :'
t Great interest is felt in our. county over
the consideration of the injunction suit
on the No-Fence , question, '- which, was
heard. by Judge Gudger at .Webster this
weeki We published yesterday evening
a telegram from Webster stating that the
Judge failed te grant the injunction ask
ed agayist" the county commissioners of
Buncombe, restraining them from levy
ing the necessary taxes and building the
fence; but instead granted an Alternative
Mandamus allowingthe Board of Com
missioners and the chairman of the joint
board oi Magistrates to convene the
Magistrates and hear petitions from the
townships: or to appear before him at
Franklii.; Macon county, on the 10th
inBty and show cause) why they should
not be compenea to ao so.
The enect of this mandamus, as we
understand it, is to restrain the county
commissioners from my action in the
execution of the law. Until the question
in the mandamus shall have been decid
ed, in the meantime we learn it is the
purpose of the counsel for the commis
sioners to . appeal from- the granting of
iluernangamus, anatnat fcna conuaot xor
the piaintin-reserve the right to appeal
irom the refusal to giant the injunction
u The order of the Judge granting the
mandamus was served upon the officials
to-day, t . .
Messrs. J. IL Merrimon. Joh nRtnnn
Jones and Gudger and Carter appear for
me county commissioners, and Messrs,
F. A. Sondley and M. E. Carter for the
anti-fence plaintiffs. ;;
Black Mountain Township is the only
township appearing in the immediate
suit, but it is understood that this is only
a test case for any or all of the seven
townships outside of the six townships
emDracea in the legislative enactment.
The plain English of the whole matter
is, we believe, that the failure to obtain
the injunction makes the law absolute
in the entire county, notwithstanding the
mandamus, unless the Magistrates shall
have been convened before the first of
November and shall allow Black Moun
tain or other townships to withdraw.
When the rail road from here to
Hendersonville shall, be completed
a valuable industry will be open
ed . in- building and nagging stone.
Mica shales and mica schists abound
there, and the laminated structure gives
them much of economic value. The
rocks of Buncombe attainable to us are
much contorted, and there is great dif
ficulty in procuring proper stone for side
walks. Henderson county has an advan
tage, and can supply the world.
