Trexler and family were the guests of Mrs. Cauble a few days ago. D. L. Cauble and family, of Salisbury, were the guests of H. A. Earnhardt on the 9th inst. Well Uncle Josh, you are wrong again in regard to that party, it was none of our doings. From what we can learn, the plans on foot for the threshing men to organize, will be a misera ble failure. It is a hard matter to get the farmers to stick to gether. If they would organize and then stick they could be the most independent men on earth, for the farm is the backbone of all business. Were it not for them how would the rest of the world live? One ot the uold Knob boys bad a peculiar experience a few days since. Some of the young ladies kicked a couple of spokes out of his wheel. We didn’t see the oc currence and can’t say whether the wheels were in the head or in a bicycle. Don’t be discouraged boys, next time your frame may get shattered. Mrs. H. A. Earnhardt has been spending a few days with her pa rents. We are informed that some work iB being done on the mount ain. There are prospects of quite a lot of work being hone in the near future.

M Lemonade will be served and af ter the prize has been awarded there will be speeches by mem bers of other Councils. We would be delighted to have Bro. White head Rluttz with us. There is an old saying “it is an ill wind that blows nobody good.’ From what we can see and hear of some people in this world, it would require a full grown cyclone to blow any good out of them. We learn that John Leonard, who now lives on the lands of Mrs. M. J. Cauble, will move this fall to some other place. We are sorry for this as we hate to lose John. Any one in need of a good man will do well to speak to him in time. As it is no one here is in such need, Bartlette. BOSTIAN’S X ROADS. .Tune 24th. We bad a heavy rain and some hail Friday evening.

Boys, sb you make arrangements to take your girls to Faith that da- don’t fail to say something to them about going to Crescent that night. Everybody cordially in vited. The debate will commence promptly at 8:30 p. m. We are soon again to celebrate one of the greatest events of his tory. When the American pa triots twanged the bow and hurl ed the dart of American freedom straight to the heart of British tyranny, the whole -civilized world was appalled that so young a nation should offer defiance to the powerful mistress of the seas.
