Snyder, of (’•» ~ 1. ••herdstown Remitter, favored Julies Town yesterday by a visit of a few hours. Pleased to see him in such good condition—he really looked as if some pa tron had paid him a year's subscription in adrauce and that it was a real, rity dollar, worth a hundred cents in the world s mar ket. Fact is, he conies so seldom that when he gets here, remembering that he has a middle initial, we dou’t kuow whether or not it meaus that he limped up, or loped up, or—well, we kuow he did not linger, indefi nitely, by the way, for he got here—hand some, hearty and hopeful. In one sense there was no cents iu his comiug—for we do uot believe he turned a penny by the trick. We saw him looking after the pros ecuting attorney—maybe that he wanted to compound some little libellous trouble in cident to the indulgence of too much jour nalistic license?
