_Wc are pleased to hear flat
tering reports front the select

Roys at the stove and tin shop,
two choice varieties. 8-lrn
—Pope county, if no disaster
happens to the crop, will make
more wheat this year than she
, has made for many seasons.
—The people of Pope peunty
are making a grand efl'ort to get
out of debt, and very few are now
buying goods on time.
—There is no town in Arkansas
that can give a better account of
the manner in which thanksgiving
day was observed, than Russell
ville.
—No more convict labor at the
Ouita Coal Mines. The company
have found this class of labor un
profitable, and unsatisfactory.
—Send along your jobwork.
The Democrat office is prepared
to do any work at the very lowest
rates offered by any office iu the
state.
—Comity court,—Judge Frank
Thatch,—meets at Dover on next
Monday. Probate court on the
3d Monday in this month.
—The school of Prof. Haddock
will be opened again next Monday
morning at the Institute building.
Ilis terms arc reasonable and liis
abilities as a teacher arc question
ed by none.
—Mr. J. II. Robinson of the
conitnitfsiou iiouee of Kirthmil,
Humphrey Ac MitchelL St. Louis,
Mo., came up on the train Mon
day. No better house in St. Louis
than this.
—We had the pleasure of meet
ing our young friend Dr. Jno. H.
Potts the other day. Dr. Potts
lias just returned from Medical
• College where he graduated with
distinction, and delivered the
valedictory address.
A patent editorial stove, which
only burns a basket full of poems
a day, is out.—Exchange,
i Send us half a dozen of the dar
lings at once, and draw on us at
sight
—Look out for the professional
card of Messrs. Davis & Bayliss
next week. They are old and able
representatives of the legal pro
fession, and we are proud to have
them represented iu our advertis
ing eolhmns.
—Nothing reflects the intelli
gence and enterprise of the peo
* pie of a couutry so well and truly
as the local newspaper. Roman
uvi uui», uiiu n«mi 1:1 ^uui ouu
scriptions thick and fast, that we
may he able and encourged to
further improve, beautify and util'
izc the Democrat.
—The services at the Cumber
land Presbyterian Church by Rev.
II. Smith, were well attended last
Sabbath, both in the morning and
evening; and the discourses which
were brief, but pointed and well
connected, were listened to by an
attentive and intelligent congre
gation.
—Subscribe for the Democrat.
It is only one dollar and fifty cents.
Times are bard, it is true; but a
well sustained newspaper will do
a: much, or more, to infuse new
life and vigor, and to bring addi
tional population, wealth and pros
parity to your county, than any
thing else. Remember this, and
* don’t stint the growth and blight
the prospects of our county, by
being too penurious to subscribe
for our paper.
—Read the address, published
in another column, of Dr. G. W.
Lawrence, our excellent commis
Moucr to the American Centen
nial. From a perusal of the nd
Iress it will be seen that our
Commissioner is thoroughly
awake to the importance of our
date having a fair representation
t the centennial. His views arc
* >iToet and his suggestions should
' heartily endorsed by our people.
—Fair Warning.—The local
3eribblcr of a newspaper is a sly
follow, and lias many ways ol
finding out things which are hid
den to the public; and if the
sneak-thief who stole the oil can
out of the ante room of the school
house don’t return it before next
Wednesday, we will certainly give
h is name to the public and let
him take the consequences.
—We publish elsewhere a let
ter from B. F. Butler, giving his
views on the rights of the colored
man under the late congressional
enactment on this matter, which
may perhaps be worth notice as
coming from such an extreme man
as the writer. It will be seer,
that even lie does not claim that
it gives the colored man any ad
ditional rights, but is only in
tended to enforce the observance
of what rights lie claims the col
ored man iiad already, before the
passage of the act.
—Elsewhere will be found the
proceedings of a meeting held at
Bellefontc, Boone county, on the
22d lilt., for the purpose of con
sidering the propriety and prac
ticability of a railroad from Har
rison to Dardancl/e. We are glad
to know that the citizens of the
fine county of Boone seem to be
awake to the importance of this
enterprise. Move and better thor
oughfares of travel and transpor
tation is wh<t we need to bring
Arkansas “tfut of the kinks,” and
we are glad to sec this matter agi
tated. We can have one of the
best states in the Union in ten
years if we can get this spirit of
public enterprise properly awak
ened up and set at work. We
wish afl success to this and every
other public enterprise.
—Misses Tcnnie Williamson
and Mollie Thompson will accejJfc
many thanks for the sweet and
fragrant geraniums sent to our
sanctum on last Wednesday even
ing. We can assure our fair
friends that their dainty floral
offering brings cheer and encour
agement to us in our humble ef
forts to make the Democrat wor
thy, at least in a small degree, of
support and friendship it is re
ceiving; for to know—as these
qflowi'cts botokon—that t lie
refined and intelligent fair ones
deem our paper worthy of remem
brance, is indeed gratifying, and
is the greatest compliment we can
receive. We accept your offering,
ladies, with pride; and trust that
the pages of the Democrat may
never he sullied with any word or
thought that will cause it to lose
your good will and friendship.
—Really we don’t like to be
considered importunate on the
subject, but we are getting a little
ashamed of the small array of
professional talent represented in
the advertising columns of the
Democrat. Not a little town in
the state, which does not reflect
through its newspaper, more pro
fessional talent than Russellville.
We want it distinctly understood,
however, that it is not because
Russellville is destitute of profes
sionals. We have them—lots of
them; and v/e are constrained to
believe, too, that they are too sen
t m liiflo tin it* nnrtif titwlnt* n
o
bushel, and we expect every day
to receive about a column of pro
fessional cards. They are a little
careless, you know.
—We would like to have it un
derstood once for all that the col
umns of the Dxmocuat is no place
for correspondents to- indulge in
personalities, or to gratify their
own personal inclinations by pa
rading before the public their per
sona! correspondence. This is no
part of journalism; we do not use
the columns of this paper for our
own personal correspondence,
or settle personal matters through
the paper, and we shall certainly
not permit others to do so. All
communications of this discre
tion will most assuredly fipd the
way into our waste basket.
—Sec the People’s Ticket pub
lishedjin to-day’s paper, and head
ed by Mr. J. 15. Erwin. We don’t
know how it was put out, but it
is a good ticket; although, we
think it could be improved by
making a few changes. There
lias been but little said about the
election and we have heard of nc
other candidates named, except
the name of our young friend and
fellow townsman, Capt. >11111 Hus
st 11. whom we suggested last wee!
for the Mayoralty. We wouh
like to see good men elected am
would relish the fun of a race. 1
there is any opposition tickc
there is no time to lose in puttiuf
it forward.
For the Democrat.]
“They Say.”
They say—ah'. well suppose they do.
And can they provo tho story true?
.MetLinks ’twere doubtful and In vain
To try to make the story plain;
Because “Tlicv Say” Is ever near,
Ami their reports lor all to hear.
‘They Say’ walks Into friendship’s bower.
Roots out our love—destroys power:
Bids sweet content and pence begone,
Then leaves it* victim quite alone.
Ah! what a dream is “They Say.”
* He never, nettr whispers nay.
But should yop flm)|“They say” wrong
[ i#i is constant slniidcrouksong,
Credit not the wretch again,
Who hath given so much pain
i And remember such is life—
Ever filled with fear and strife.

M arch Sflth, 1875.
: Written for the Democrat.]
To Pauline.
I hardly thought my little squib,
Would provoke from you a reply,
But to my great surprise it did,—
You confess you’re pleased, so am I.
Now as you dub mo **;Sir Harry”
A knignt I’ll he, like those of old,
And at my foes thrust and parry,
Notlike ijuixot, but Alarmion bold.
And by your leave, I’ll constitute,
Myself your true and faithful knight,
If any your beauty dare dispute,
He must break a lance with me in fight.
If wc only kneweach’other,
We’d talk, play euchre, Rogue-et-no(r>
’Stead our heads with rhyming bother,—
Long as wc pleased, then A u Re voir.
True it is I very well know,
From conditions of place or birth,
Honor, fame, do not always flow,
Alore than talents, or modest worth.
But I’m a little curious,
And would like to know how you look,
But ’twould be rather serious
Ur I’d ask questions like a book.
Or like an inquisitive yank,
That’s ever bent upon a trick,
Ur to play you an ugly prank,—
But then you’d think me bad as Brick.
Allow me now to say goodnight,
And for fear in matter minus,
These lines may prove, I’ll expedite
Them all to a Analjfoto.

—We must remind gentlemen
correspondents that the object in
our soliciting correspondence is
not to fill up. Wo can find mat
ter enough to occupy all our space
without soft silly nonsense, and if
| you have nothing better to eom
l munirate, don’t write at all. If
1 you have anything of interest to
the people to communicate, write
it in a plain, concise manner, and
don't try to sec how long a story
you can make out of nothing.
Our space belongs to the people,
and we want it devoted to matter
which will interest and benefit
them.
—Mr. J. L. Shinn, our worthy
chairman of Jthc executive com
mittee of the Russellville Printing
