On the Side-Walk,
Dec. 17, 1878.
On the side-walk has been anything
but pleasant "during the past week. A
freeze and then a thaw lias caused the
mud to spew up between the flag-stones
and brick, making locomotion as un
graceful as it is unpleasant; and about
the only thing of interest to be picked
up is oneself, when a mistep is taken, or
your attention is attracted by some pass
ing object, which causes you to forget to
see that your foot is safely bestowed in a
secure position on terra firina.
My friend C, who is quite a lady's
man, cut a ridiculous figure last Sunday
evening in trying to descend a narrow
plank walk at an angle of 30 degrees, all
unconscious at the time that a couple of
rougish girls were taking observations
from a window close by. Not until he
had picked himself up, and was endeav
oring to make a safe descent by holding
on to the palings, did he discover that
he was the "observed of all observers,"
"Sich is life."

them. The Baptist S. S., will have a

at the M. E. Church will entertain their

I have thought it a very good plan to
tell your readers where they can buy
their Christmas goods. For candies,

hind no establishment in the cities.
King & Hill have a small assortment of
toys and a large and beautiful lot of oth

buy something useful as well as orna

for Christinas goods, and it will be worth

Just now money seems to be the arti

Bland. We learn from a gentle
man who came from the neighbor
hood of Sharon yesterday that a ne
gro named Frank Woods was delib
erately shot and kill, d on the farm of
Maj, John S. McNutt about one mile
from Sharon Springs, last Thursday
night, by ar.other negro, named Hen-
ry Blair. The two negroes were in
the service of 3I.ij. McJSatt, and liv
ing in a cabia near his residence.
Woods was a man of family, of peace
ful disposi'iou arid good character.
His wife at the time the fatal shoo
ing took place was in bed sick.
Blair is a man aged about 18 years.
It seems, from a confession made by
him after the murder, that he had
slapped one of Woods' children, and
Woods became offended at hira for
so doing and threatened if he did so
again he wcnld knock him over,
determined ''not to be run over in
any. such way," he immediately left
the cubing slipped into Maj Mcutts
residence and got a shot gun, loaded
it with buck shot, took Lis position
near the door of the cabin, ai.d when
Woods came o.it, took nim and fired
at him lodging the contents of the
gun in W's neck, the load ranging
downward and causing almost instant
death. Woods' stepped back into
the cabin and said to his wile: ' Hen
ry has shot me." He then fell to
the floor and diod. Blair was arrest
