How Honesty is the Best Policy.
The inauguration of the raonthlv Grand
Drawings of the Louisiana State Lottery
Company at the lime of its inception
(with its thus seemingly unnecessarily lib
eral offer of prizes,) was a very bold un
dertaking for those tfme3. But, the Hon
est, Intelligent and Reliable management
has never failed to perform to the moment
and to the letter, all that it has promised,
and now reaps its reward for its fidelity,
in having deservedly the entire confidence
of the public from the St. Lawrence to the
Gulf of Mexico, and from the Atlantic to
the Pacific. Genl'a. G. T. Beauregard, of
La., and Jubal A. Early, of Ya., ha?-e the
sole management of the drawings, and $5
or any $1 fraction of it, sent to M. A.
Dauphin, New Orleans, La., will receive
prompt attention. The next event occurs
on Tuesday, August 8th.

Storm and Fire on the Ridge.
On Saturday night last a heavy thun
der storm passed over Ridge Spring. The
lightning struck one of the large otk trees
in front o? Mr. R. B. Watson's house and
shivered it. On Sunday night a small
store, owned by Mr. John Nobles and sit
uated near the depot, was foupd to be on
lire and was rapidly buming when the
fire was first discovered. It burned to the
ground very quickly, lt was occupied by
Mr. Dick Morris as a ??roeery stol e. He
had ?.>'30 insurance on his stock.
At Red Oak Grove.
The protracted meeting at Red Oak
Grove last wee-k was richly biepsed. Six
teen were added to the Church, and,
judging from the manifestations at the
very close, many more would have joined
could the meeting have been continued
Of the said sixteen, eleven have already
beeu baptized. ' Mr. Bussey was ably as
sisted iu this meeting by the Rev. Mr.
Fant and the Rev. Mr. Hundley, who
preached with great zeal and power, and
gained the love of all the Grove section.
Sunday School Concert at (?assaway.
The Sunday School and friends of Gas
saway met on Friday afternoon, July 28,
to hold a Concert. While the audience
was not very large, the interest was very
great. The exercises were preside-' ,ver
by the pastor, the Rev. J. B. 'r .iywick!
ind many intcreBtin- ' s and essays
were listened to. The school was so
plea?ed that they decided to hold another
Concert at an early day.
Mr. James Stocker, late of Charleston,
committed suicide at the residence of his
sister, Mrs. Charlotte O'Neal, near Den
ny's X Roads, July 20th. He had been
laboring under mental derangement for
two or three weeks, bot was considered as j
harmless. The night before the fatal day,
he, with his sister, spent the night with
Rev. Milton Norris, near Balesburg; and
on the following morning he attempted to
drown himself in a fish pond, but failed.
His sister then took him to ber residence,
anti that day, about 4 p. m., he hung him
self with a rope in the barn. The place
selected, the length of rope, and the hang
man's knot he tied, all indicated calcula
tion and ingenuity, May sister and
mother have the sustaining grare i
