for the general observance ot the day in

determined to visit the "oldest town .in

and festivities that her iople had so pr n

all literally covered with bunting and the
National colors were neatly and tastefully
made. Many private dwellings were also
very handsomely decorated. Company li

were met at the edge of town by a special
committee, and both held prominent places
in the procession and added crcatly to the
enjoyment ol tue day.

It is estimated that there were from
twenty-five hundred to three thousand
persons present. Good order prevailed
during the day. Everything that has any
signilicance in the proper observance of
our natal day was represented ia the pro
cession, which was almost a mile in length.
The Goddess of Liberty, Uncle Sim, and
loung America iu all tlieir clory were to
be seen. Upon the arrival of the profes
sion at the grove, the military order which
bad been sinc'.ly ooserved was dispensed
with, and every body was free and inde
pendent. 1 he greater part of tue day
was spent pleasantly in tbe trove. In tlie
evening Company G gave a dress parade
in the upper Diamond, which wa witness
ed by a lame and admiring crowd, alter
wnich the people were treated to cboice
music by the Schellsbnr baud. As the
shades of night drew near, the town was
most beautifully and brilliantly illumina
ted. Japanese'lanterus in countless num
bers hung ia every conceivable spot in
the arches, lestoonings, on private dwell
ings, stores and shops, while the sky was
lit up by a continuous stream ot rockets;
all combined presenting a most gorgeous
pvrotechnical display. The shouts of the
crowd were loud and long, as rocket after
rocket shot upwards, exploding far above
their heads, raining showers of red,
white and blue lire and the brilliantly
colored balls of flame from the lioman
candles sped in every direction. After the
display of fire works, although by this
time the rain, which had been threatening
all day long, commenced to fall rapidlj-,
the citizens congregated in the Diamond
with lighted torches, for the evening pro
cession. At 0 o clock several nundred per
sons were in line and marching through
the principal streets ol the town. From
our post t a window of tbe hotel we had
a fine view of the procession, and as they
marched and countermarcbed, we tbougbt
it was one of tbe finest sights we had ever
witnessed. Tbe rain had ceased to fall.
the clouds overhead were dark and omin
ous ; JUam street, tue principal street oi
the town, was splendidly illuminated from
one end to the other with fancy-colored
lanterns, and the procession ot torch-bear
ers, as they wound in and out the different
streets, in a huge serpeniine-nite tracK,
presented a scene that was truly grand,
and one that made an impression on our
memory that will never be obliterated
while tile lasts. inus was ceieorateu

rank with tbe Common schools in eincien-

clear and forcible manner by Key. Pollin-

too much had had not been expended and
could not be done for free schools over the
land, for in the education of the masses
lay tbe hopes of a government and nation
like ours ; but on the other hand, we were
made to realize that there was too much
difference between the amount of money
and the amount of effort expended on the
I tee Schools and on the work of the Sun
day Schools. We must be made to esti
mate the spiritual above the carnal, tbe
heavenly above tbe earthly. Space will

Dear Herald : As you have not
beard from our little town for some time
1 will pen yon a few lines.
Mr. Herman Henry is erecting a large
and commodious building to be used as a
boarding house for the accommodation of
city 7isitors. The house will be run in
nrst-ciass style and we hope he will do a
good business.
A company of Mercer county men have
purchased quite a large lot ot umber land
about here and have erected saw mills and
heading mills. They are fine gentlemen
and expect to do a big business in the lum
ber and heading line. They at present
employ about one hundred hands and ex
pect to have have that many more within
a lew weeks. E. O. R.

As AstonibHIXg Fact. A large pro
portion of the American people are to-day
dying from the effects of Dyspepsia or dis
ordered liver. The result of these dis
eases upon the masses of intelligent and
valuable people is most alurming, making
life actually a burden instead of a pleasant
existence of enjovment and usefulness as
it ought to be. There is no good reason
for this, if you will only throw aside pre
judice and skepticism, take the advice of
Druggists and your iriends, and try one
bottle of Green August Flower. Your
speedy relief U certain. Millions of bot
tles of this medicine have been gives
away to try its virtues, with satisfactory
results in every case. You can buy a
samp.e bottle lor 10 cents to try. Three
doses will relieve the worst case. Posi
