Road Making.— There are a few
principles to be observed n making or
mending roads that ought :o be burned
into the brains of overseers. First,keep
water from standing on them. Second
mend clay roads with sand and sandy
roads with clay. The first may be effect
ually carried out by drainage and mak
ing and keeping the road bed oval. Scoop
out the sides but never make a ditch
along tlie road side. They are exceed
ingly dangerous and the overseer that
allows a ditch along the road ought to be
punished. It will pay in the long run to
haul clay for sandy roads a considerable
distance, and also to haul sand or loam
for clay roads.
The Peach Growers' Meeting.—
The final meeting of the peach growers
at Middletown on Friday last was quite
aslormy one, and general dissatisfac
tion with the new terms offered by the
Delaware Railroad Company was freely
expressed. The terms offered were not
agreed to, and this leaves the whole sub
ject open and the plans of the transpor
tation companies will no doubt be si
lently and sullenly acquiesced in,because
the fruit growers cannot help themselves.
No combination seems to be possible
among them. In all tlie negotiations
and discussions, Mr- Biggs, the Chair
man of the Committee to confer with the
railroad authorities, has been accused of
pandering for personal considerations,
to Mr. Hinckley's passion for tbe Dela
ware Railroad.

ties of Virginia to the Delaware Dis
trict has necessitated changes in the

Delaware State Temperance
Society. —The temperance people of
Wilmington have organized a State
ciety under the above title and its work
is set forth in the following Constitu
tion :
Believing that the time has arrived in
the history of the temperance reform in the
State of Delaware, when we are called upon
to organize a State Temperance Alliance as
a great motive power in years to come, to
educate the public mind, keep tlie subject
before the children, work in unison with tlie
blessed church of God, all temperance so
cieties, ministers of the Gospel and Christian
men and women throughout the whole State

Resolved. That the following articles be
adopted:
Article 1.— Temperance literature will
be circulated, schools will be visited, and the
pledge introduced wherever God may direct.
Article 2.—Our motto will be Fear God

Article 3.— Knowing from past experi
ence that the liquor traffic is a powerful ene
my to contend with, being fully intrenched
behind avarice and appetite, opposed direct
ly to the church or any organization that
weakens its power, we are fully convinced
that the time for action has come, and while
we shall labor to save the. fallen, we shall atthe
same time do all in our power to annihilate
the traffic and rid our lovely Delaware of tlie
dark blot that now rests upon her.
Article 4.—The organization shall con
sist of President, Secretary, and a list of Vice
Presidents, with others to be added from
time to time, as the officers may think expe
dient. Their headquarters shall be at Wil

mid paid out,and no contracts Bliall be enter
ed into without the consent of the President.

The town is remarkably quiet to-day,

scholars, with the officers teachers and a
number of citizens, has gone on an ex
cursion and gala day to Cambridge, Md.
Our farmers have nearly all completed
their harvest,and the reports are all good
in regard to the crop. Some say they
never had better.
Our town was enlivened on Monday
morning last by the marriage of one of
our most interesting young ladies :

M. E. Church, at the residence of the
bride's father, Mr, George W. Emory,of

-TO
Fruit Growers!
THE ALDEN FRUIT PRESERVING CO.,
In order to meet a long-telt want, have decided
to reduce the price of their Evaporators to a
figure that brings it within the react of most
fruit growers, tlius enabling them to utilize
their fruit anu realize a profit where otherwise
they would be subject to loss. It is conceded,
by all unprejudiced persons who havo had op
portunity to investigate tho subject, that the
Aldcn is not only the be9t method of curing
fruit but the only really correct method ana
that other methods are more or less good Just
in proportion as they conform to or depart
from tho Alden method. This fact is acknowl
edged by the proprietors of various machines
