Colonel Bob Ingersoll said in New
York on Mouday last : " Politics have
little interest, for ine now. Once in
/opr years I like to take a email hand,but
after that and between the fights I am
content to let things drift. Everything
is being done to divide, distract and
destroy the Republican party. Tho
■truggle for office is mo Hevere tjiat prin
ciples are alinoHt forgotton. The
available candidates are being destroy
ed by their small rivals. All the can
didates are attacked by a virulence
that is unaccountable and appalling.
How cau the men who have made such
charges support the man they have
attacked, if he happens to be nomina
ted ?
The great question is, who can carry
New York, and everything is being
done to make it impossible for
any Republican to accomplish that.
The politicians act as though
Republican success was an as
sured fact. The truth is we will need
the vote of every Republican. We are
divided, tilled with the spiritoffaction,
attacking each other, furnishing food
for the Democratic campaigu, taking
S reat pains to prove that all of our can
idates are unfit for the office they seek.
We must learn to think more of princi
ples than persons, more of the success
of the party than any man in the par
ty."
"How do you account, Colonel, for
this state of things ?''
"The party has held power for a
long time ; there are many parties with*
in the party. Too many men imagine
they have been foreordained Presidents;
too many short men want an office to
stand on, and all the tall men have too
many enemies. There is no great ques
tion now before the people. In times
of trouble the best men get to the front;
when the trouble is over little fellows
press foward.
*' If things go on as they are going
the Democratic papers during the cam
paign will he tilled with extract* from
Republican organs, and that will Mi all

One of the most delightful rides at thi.
season of tho year Is through the peach grow.
Ing sections ofthe State and Peninsula via
the Delaware Railroad. (Such a trip was re
cently made by a representative of the Ra
re blk'a w, who took particular notice while

and tho sight was a pleasing one.

that have recently been made at the various
stations along this route, slnoe the road

Railroad Company, the peaoh trees form
Important feature,tor In many orchards they
were in full bloom and presented a beautiful
sight, while all the growers seein to be In a
happy mood, as the prospect never was bet
tor for a crop of fruit of all kinds. Pears are
also blooming out, and orchards that wero
not overfull hist year now give promise of
having a full crop. In conversation with
several gentlemen interested In the peach
trade they |m 11 predict a large crop, the
situation around Lincoln and Millord being
more promising than it has been for many
years, and the msjorlty of the growers do not
anticipate their death by any frost or cold
weather that Is predicted by some before
the weather becomes fairly settled. There
Is, however, among the growers a certain
is, who. while they are

Injured up t* June
er that has | revailed this winter It is thought
by many of the oldest residents that spring
has opened out at last In eurncst aud that all
fears of a fruit crop failure can lie laid aside
for another year.
In reference to fanning the cold
weather has kept everything hack, but dur
ing the past and present week the farmers
have had an opportunity to put In some
" heavy licks " In tho way of plowing
and they havo taken advantage of tin
weather to do so. (>n most of tl
are ready for plantingoorn and rniny have
already begun and by the first of May
planting will be universal throughout the
State.
1* many cases the wheat Helds along the
line of the Dealware Railroad are showing
up well, and on very high ground tho wheat
has the appearance of yielding a large crop,
but on some of tbe lower land It Is not very
promising.
As a general thing, however, crops will not
be Injured to any serious extent throughout
this Mtate by the hard winter just passed,
and by hard work the farmers, with their
late crops, can more than make up tor tne
loss sustained through their early products.
In Kent County the yield of strawberries
this yuar promises to be larger than It has
been for years, tho averago In bearing hav
ing increased gradually for the past three
years. This has alBo been Increased this
spring by the setting out of many millions of
new plants. Owing to the low price of grain
farmers have been forced to diversify their
products, and raise everything that will pos
sibly grow out of the ground as a substitute
for grain. Fruit will also sell, and. ns a gen
eral thing, brings fair prices, especially that
which is well handled, consequently farmers
not slow In recognizing this fact and act
accordingly.
Wlillo the tillers ofthe soil are busy at this
season of the year the residents of the towns
and villages aro not idle, but in riding along
through tho great fruit growing country, of
whle i Delaware can boast, the attention of
travelers is called to the many building Im
provements that are being made, and nearly
every town throughout tho State is enjoying
a lively building boom, and before the end
of another year many new houses, factories,
etc., will be added to the business industries
of the little Diamond State. At Dover this
fact is particularly noticeable and contrac
tors are, at the present time, crowded with
work. Tho main features of the improve

and the future prospect of thsState Capital
Is very promising. More might he said of
this and other towns in the way of building
Improvements, but time and space will not
permit, and wo leave tbe reader to ponder
over the above, with a gontle hint thAt If
thoy want to learn just how their JState Is

About two years ago Reese & Broth
er opened a store at No. 6 East Fourth
street for the sale of stoves, wooden
ware, housekeeping articles, and doing
tin roofing, using the basement
work shop for stove and tin repairing.
Since that time they have been obliged
by the great increase in their business
to lease the largo room on the second
floor, and construct a stairway from the
store. This room has been divided,and
the front part is well stocked with baby
coaches, cedar and tin ware, heaters,
refrigerators and a host of other articles
used in almost every house, while the
rear part is devoted to light repairing
work,and the basement is used for heavy
work.
The store loom is fully stocked with
all goods in their line, including some
ot the finest ranges,and best cook stoves
ever brought to this city
which is an improvement, on the Victor
