Fourth of July Celebration !
The proceedings ot the meeting held in this place, on Saturday evening, last, to make arrangements for the celebra tion of the 4th of July, will be found in -another place. "We hope all our citi zens, irrespective of party, will take sufficient interest in the matter to make it a grand success. The people of An drew county, we are informed, in days that are past, have honored themselves and their country in honoring this day, and we hope the slumbering fires of pa triotism will be revived, anil burn again with the ardor of the days of old. No other day in the year is so appropriate for all parties to meet harmoniously on a platform common to all, and we hope the occasion will be improved as be comes good citizens. It has a good ef fect on society, everybody feels better for its due observance, and gives great er faith in the perpetuity of our institu tions. A second preliminary meeting is to be held at the Court House on Saturday night next, for the purpose of complet ing arrangements, to which all are invi ted, and which we hope will be gen erally attended.

Call and see for your selves and get some bargains. - The hour for holding Sunday-school at the Presbyterian church has been changed from 2 p. m. to 9 A. m. Fou first-class job work of all kinds eall at the Hepcijucan office. Notice. J. T. Floyd, late from the University at Lexington, Ky., will preach at the Christian Church, in Sa vannah, the Second Sunday m June, 1875, at lOh o'clock a. m. E. A. Causon relates that one day last week while near some bushes on his place, he found a snake, which he kill ed, and in a few moments the grasshop pers lit down on it and devoured it al most instantly. Several other farmers tell the same thing. We can't say we are just exactly sat isfied with the way Stiles & Hardy do their advertising. They don't advertise much in the papers, and yet they are selling a heap of goods, and candor forces us to admit they have a tine store. Nodaway county has a poor farm, of 1G0 acres, some four and a half miles west of Maryville. It has nine inmates, who are kindly cared for by the over seer, while the farm is in a good slate of improvement. This speaks well for Nodaway. Crops destroyed! Money h:u-d to get! aud John J. Miller has reduced the prices of his mammoth stock of Cloth ing to suit this state of affairs. Call and be convinced. Louis Weil and met with a little mis fortune last Friday. While working around the soda water engine in the cellar at Shedrick's, a wreneh with which he was fixing some ot the ma chinery, slipped and struck him over the right eye, cutting quite an ugly irash. Grasshoppers arc thick, aud the peo pie naturally feel very uneasy about them, but they are not numerous enough to stop the excitement about the new stock of Dry Goods and Groceries,. at Russell's, who has marked them down to suit the depleted purses of the peo ple. -e- A man named James Stobaugh was arrested in the northwest part of Noda way county, week before last, on the charge of grand larceny, stealing a span of mules, in Lafayette county a year or so ago. He was taken back to Lafayette county the following morning He admitted his guilt. Ciesar covered his bald head with a laurel crown. Ayer's Hair Vigor covrs gray heads with the slill more Avelcome locks of youth. Great destitution exists in Cass eoun ij on. account of the grasshoppers.. A zommittee has been sent by the, coenty curi & b. Lory s for, sw.cL, The Golden Rule in De Kami. A week or two since we published an article from the Maysville Register to the effect that the farmers of DcKalb had united together for the purpose of resisting the incursions of foreign herd ers into that county. Since then they have retracted from their position, the necessitous condition of the cattle own ers of the counties desolated by grass hoppers being so apparent that the mat ter assumed the shape of charity and human feeling, anil they now offer no further resistance. This is but doing as they should, and is creditable to them ; but we doubt the propriety and justice of their action in the first place. Thursday last. :Jd inst., the day ap pointed by Governor Hardin for fasting and prayer to Almighty God that He would remove the grasshopper scourge, and restore to the people pros perity, was not very generally observed by our business men, though a goodly portion of our citizens attended on Hi vine "Worship, and joined in. or sympa thized with, the solemn exercises. A jrreat many are disposed to treat very lightly this matter of calling on God for assistance in times of alHiction and trouble, and say that it does no good. "We believe the truth is otherwise, how ever inscrutable, to human eyes, may be the ways of Providence. Fkom: announcements made in the St. Joe dailies, it seems that sports of that city are shortly to have a grand shooting match. Our readers are doubt less aware what constitutes these shoot ing matches. The sport who can kill the greatest number of birds on the wing, let loose from a trap one at a time, is the winner the pettv, contemp tible hero of the hour. We look upon this and all kindred bird killing not onfy as uncalled for by any interest or good of society, but as a species of wantonness, cruelty and barbarism de serving the delectation and contempt of all right thinking me.; ! It is a crime in and of itself, without the shadow of palliation. Birds were created for nobler and better purposes. Those loafing sports who indulge in this bru tal pastime should be made to feel the full force of the penalties of the law; and ff there be no law against such pro ceedings there ought to be, for the cred it of human nature. Flsiiin;. Fishing is an interesting spoi l of childhood, and often pleasantly and profitably engaged in b- those of maturer years. In times like the pres ent, when the count it is devastated by the grasshoppers, many may spend a profitable afternoon on the banks of our largo rivers, which, at this season, abound in fish, but are deterred from doing so because an impression prevails thai it is a violation of the law. Fish in this market meet with read' sale, at good prices, and we would like to see the business encouraged. For the in formation of such we copy the follow ing section of the new fish law : "Sec. 2. No person shall be allowed to place, erect or maintain, or cause to be maintained, across an' of the waters of this State, or in front of the mouth of any stream emptying into any other stream, an' seine, not, trammel net.bag weir, lish-dam, trap or other similar de vice or obstruction, which shall prevent the free passage of fish up or down, in any such water or stream ; nor shall any person or persons be permitted to use any such means or devices, for the pur pose of catching fish in waters solely upon the premises of other persons, without the written consent ot such owner or owners; nor shall any person, during the months of July ami August of any year, by means of such device, catch or take any fish, in any of the wa ters of this State. Any person who shall violate the provisions of this section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction be fined in any sum noft exceeding five hundred dollars, and shall stand committed until the line and costs of process and trial be paid. DIED TERHUNE At 12 o'clock, on Thurs day night, May 27th, 1875, at his fath er's residence-, near Savannah, Mr. Da vid II. Terhune, sou of John Terhune, in the 23d year of his age. The deceased was a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and his life was a perfect exemplification of his faith. In the death of young Ter hune, Andrew county lost a promising citizen, ami society an upright honora ble member. SavannaH Grange No. 330.
