Donble Pipe Creek. Items. On Tuesday of last week, as we were cross ing the bridge, wo saw something dodging around in the creek below, and upon exam ining the spot more closely we saw a little fellow scarcely three feet in height and not twelve years old tugging away at a large stone, almost larger than himself. Inquiring of him what was up, he informed us that he was building a dam for his set-net. We thought he might with propriety leave that undone, • but what was our surprise when “Billy’’ in formed us the next morning that he hauled 21 of the finest suckers caught this season, some of them measuring 10 inches and over. Since our little friend has put the ball to rolling there have been over 500 caught here, many measuring 17 inches and over, and looking like shad. Tramps have been very numerous for the last month. Would it not be expedient for some of our Frederick county officials—say a few magistrates, constables and a sheriff—to come this way. We would be willing to fur nish them with this surplus of ours free of charge, since the tramp business pays so well over there. F. J. Shorb, after trying in vain to purchase pigs for fall fattening, called upon a gentle man the other day who offered to sell him a horse and throw two shotes in. Mr. S., rather than lose this opportunity of securing his fall pork, accepted the offer. Geo. Six and wife returned to this place last week, after a wedding tour of several weeks. They were met at the station by our sleigh hell and tin pan brigade, making it ex ceedingly entertaining for all concerned. Base ball playing has begun. We have some champion players, and ere long we an ticipate seeing the D. P. C. nine in the lead. Merton Birely, son ofE. D. Byerly, is very ill at this time with the measles. For a time the optic and auditory nerves were affected, and he is now suffering with chorea. The sheeting on the dam was badly dam aged by the recent high waters. More than half of it has entirely moved away. The cellars of our town are full of water. Boating by means of tubs is a common occur rence. Joel Myers, of York Road, intends oper ating his mill near here himself, and will probably do merchant work. Misses Minnie and Zeppa Martin, of Owens’ Creek, were visiting friends in town last week. Judge Granville T. Hering, Esq., and wife, of near Sandy Mount, were visiting relatives here last week.

This is the fourth Sunday School for our little village. The Reformed members have now definite ly bought the Baptist Church for S9OO. They are preparing the charter and other papers for a proper organization. Oar farmers are rapidly shipping their steers at the rate of 0, tit and 7 cents. H. F. Hof facker shipped twenty, averaging 1179 lbs. Mrs. H. F. Hoffacker has been stricken with paralysis on her right side. Her right arm is useless, and her tongue is partly inflex ible. The Shrewsbury minstrel troop entertained a small audience in A. H. Grove’s hall last Saturday. The performance was tolerably good. The New Freedom Cornet Band en livened the occasion with some of their choicest selections. The horse disease is raging in some of the remote parts of our community. Miss Kate Lazenby and Miss Allie Norris have returned from a lengthy visit to their friends in Baltimore. Our village will probably be destitute of a summer school. The patrons, by all accounts, waut to educate their children in the canning factory. # e j A Sunday School entertainment will be held in the Lutheran Church on Easter Sunday afternoon. Hampstead Items. As the first of April approaches movers are getting restless, and those who have not al ready pulled up stakes and moved their camp fires are preparing to do so. Mr. Josiah Sullivan, who has so successfully farmed the Stansbury farm for the last five years, moved | on last Thursday to Unkmtowo, where he re- | cently'purchascu a farm. Mr.' Sullivan is a i good citizen and neighbor, and we are sorry i ; to lose him. i Mr. A. Stansbury, one of our most active ! business men, has relinquished merchandis i ing and moved to his farm. _ , Mr. Elias Baker, residing near Union | Chapel, sold his farm of 120 acres to Edward j Fowble for S3,(KM) cash, and bought of Jack- | son Belt the old Baker homestead, lying on i the pike about two miles below Hampstead, j :at SOO per acre. # j Mr. Win.

Schaffer’s steam sawmill has been at several j places in this neighborhood, sawing building ■ material. . Many of the by-roads in this district are almost impassable on account of the depth ot ! the mud. i The growing wheat on upland is looking excellent, but in lowlands it is suffering in I consequence of the excessive rains. Mr. Harvey Burgoon, a man from Mt. Pleasant left for Illinois on Tuesday last. Mr. Joseph Erb, Jr., of this place, while i engaged in cutting wood on Tuesday last, had 1 his leg and foot badly bruised by a falling tree. ! | Mr. Erb will probably be disabled for several , | weeks.

Shipley's farm, at Morgan’s Run, to Mr. John Bowers' from near your city. We say good luck to him, and hope him and Cam- ; i ily much success and long life.

Shipley lost a very valuable young mare, heavy with foal. Our farmers are much pleased about their grain wintering so well.

THE EASTEB MONDAY PARADE. - The Fifth Regiment, First Batallon. and I Other Military will he in Line. The committee in charge of the Easter Mon - day Demonstration have received from the 1 Fifth Maryland Regiment an acceptance of the invitation extended to them fast week 1 through Messrs. C. 11. Vanderford and L. L. s Billingslea to take part in the parade. The 1 regiment will turn out about 300 strong, and * will be accompanied by their splendid band and drum corps, numbering together 55 pieces. I Acceptances have also been received from J the Frederick Riflemen, who will muster 40 J men; the Linganore Guards, 30 strong, and ? the Towsou Guards, 40 strong. The Williams -7 port Light Infantry, Hagerstown Light In- IT fantry and the Catonsville Guards are also invited, and no doubt will accept. The Fred- J erick, Hagerstown, Williamsport and Linga r nore companies constitute the First Batalion, 1 and will be commanded by Col. H. Kyd Dou * glas, accompanied by his stall*. * The trades display and the burlesque feat ures of the parade will be larger than those of 1 last Easter, and the affair will be the largest and most imposing ever witnessed in Mary -5 land, outside of Baltimore. As before stated the carnival associations 1 of Hagerstown and Frederick will take part ’ in the parade, and bands of music and drum ' corps will be present from Frederick, Ha gerstown, Chambersburg, Waynesboro’, Han - over, Union Bridge, Westminster and from a I number of towns in Carroll. The committee are getting up other attrac tions, but not desiring to make any promise that will not be fulfilled, will defer stating them until they have fully completed arrange ments. As will be seen by advertisement the West ern Maryland railroad has made round trip tickets very low, and the Baltimore A Han over road will make arrangements to bring excursionists here in time to witness the pa rade and other attractions and take them home 1 by special train in the evening. On Thursday night the committee selected the following officers for the parade—Col. Wm. P. Maulsby, Chief Marshal; Capt. J. C. Brubaker and Chas. R. Favour aids to Chief Marshal; Col. S. K. Herr Assistant Chief Marshal; George M. Pearce, Dr. John S. Ma thias, Percey I. Shriver and J. Milton Reif snider, aids to Assistant Chief. New Oxford. I*a., Hems. The roads in this section are in a terrible condition. There is an immense quantity of travelling done, or to be done, just now, and we cannot see how the farmers will get their crops out. Mr. I. D. W. Stonesifer, who has for a number of years occupied the Washington House, in this place, is about moving to the Montour House, Westminster. Mr. Stone sifer is one of the best hotel keepers that New Oxford ever had, and we are sorry to lose him. Our loss will be Westminster's gain. If he does not know how to run a hotel, then there is no use in any other person trying. His table, &c., cannot be excelled anywhere. Our carpenters are happy over the prospects for the summer. There will be a number of new buildings going up in this place, and much other work for all mechanics. There will be considerable moving in this place and neighborhood. Several families I will go west. j New Oxford will only have one hotel this I year, and that one is trying to monopolize all, ; but he may fail in that. Waynenboro* |Pa.) Items. A tramp died suddenly in the woods near j | Price’s Church, not far from this place, on | Tuesday morning of last week, from sickness j and exposure. His comrades came to this , town for some liquor for him, and upon re turning found him dead; they returned again quickly to make it known here. Mr. Crebs, undertaker, proceeded to the place where the unfortunate victim lay, and brought him into town, and on Wednesday morning his remains were interred in the old Lutheran graveyard. There has been a great deal of sickness here this winter, and many deaths, principally of aged people. Mr. Gilbert, who has been lying ill for a long time from the effects of a horse tramping on his foot, still lies very ill. It is thought his foot will have to be amputated. The United Brethren congregation in this town have had a revival going on for several weeks, and some have been converted. Mr. John Spangler, formerly master me- I chanic for the Geiser Company, has been ! elected foreman over the entire works, and j C. Kline assistant. New Itnildiiitf Enterprise for West minster. A number of our capitalists have under consideration the formation of a land and building company, for the purpose of buying land and erecting cottages tor annual and j summer renters. It is designed to build comfortable and neat houses in a certain por tion of the city, where the houses can be sup | plied with gas and water. The matter is being 1 considered by men who can furnish the ne | cessary means, and who foresee in it a great improvement to the town. There is every ! reason why such an undertaking is soon to j prove a success, and with the conveniences of ! gas and water, and the prospect of our streets I ! being paved or macadamized, our city can ! offer to the business men of Baltimore and ! elsewhere such inducements as no other point along the railroad within a short run of Balti more can offer. This will give employment I to a large amount of labor, and add consider ' able to the assessable property in our midst. New' Windsor Items. The Rev. Alfred Nevin, D. D., LL. D., ; editor-in-chief of “The Presbyterian Encyclo- I pmdia of America,’’ has accepted an invita ; tion to preach the Baccalaureate Sermon at New Windsor College, on Sunday morning, June Bth, 1884.

In Mecklenburg five or six dwel lings were destroyed, but no lives were lost. The tornado also passed through Iredell coun ty, doing great damage to fruits and blowing , down many houses. Tuesday night’s storm at Gainesville, Ga., was very severe. Many houses were levelled to the ground. The storm travelled northeast with a rotary motion. Hail stones as large as guinea eggs fell thick and fast. The track of the storm was about 150 yards wide. The cloud was black, with a silver-gray back ground. Three lives are reported lost, and furniture, beds, roofs, trees and timber cover the ground in every direction.

Tue Times-Democrat says: The condition of the levees above New Orleans is critical and serious. The expenditure of SIOO,OOO now will save millions and prevent great suf fering. New Orleans is only in danger from the breaking of levees above the city. The water at Kansas City, Mo., has reach ed the highest point ever known at this period of the year, and is rising at the rate of an inch per hour. At Bismarck, Dakota Territory, the river is rising slowly. There is a gorge five miles be low Buford, and although the river rose seven feet in twenty-four hours the ice above Buford is still solid. The dam of the Newport Water Works, at Lykens Valley, Rhode Island, broke on Tues day night and the estate of Mrs. Julia Ward ' Howe was flooded.

The Connecticut river at Hartford covers ! the wharves and fills the cellars along the ! river front. The freshet is increasing at the rate of about two inches per hour. A despatch from Boyd, Ky., March 27, says :—lt will be days before the extent of desolation caused by the cyclone can be as certained. The loss of life, as well as the damage to property, is great. At Colemans ville, two miles distant, not one of the 300 inhabitants escaped injury and 75 buildings were demolished. The little towns of Mt. Nebo, Conroy and Antioch were swept away. Throughout the country nothing was left i standing in the track of the tornado. Stock, i barns, dwellings, fences and forests were I carried off. Babes were blown from their mothers’ arms and killed. Bodies of dead ! persons were found strewn along the roads. Immense numbers of cattle were also slaugh- I tered. A church was lifted from its site and j has not yet been heard of; the organ was 1 found about five miles distant. Rocks weigh- • ing three tons were borne quite a distance and the ground was much torn up. Vast . quantities of water were blown from the river. When the cyclone first appeared it looked | like an immense circus tent filled with air and being carried by the wind. After the ■ tornado a heavy hail storm prevailed. Ten : minutes later the sun shone brilliantly on a scene of devastation. The villages destroyed ; are in the Blue Grass regions and the com munity is made up of well-to-do people. A tornado passed six miles south of Day | ton, Ohio, Tuesday, leveling trees, and dam* ! aging and demolishing a number of buildings. 1 A terrific storm of wind and hail visited i Knoxville, Tennessee, Tuesday afternoon. I Windows were smashed by the hail, fifteen frame buildings were demolished by the wind | and several persons were injured, i The most disastrous wind storm known in many years struck Denver, March 27, and continued with unabated fury. Many of the finest buildings in the city, including the City | Hall, and the Moffatt and Hassler and Syne’s | and Clifford blocks were unroofed. Several • persons were injured, but not fatally. j The village of Scipio, 0., was wiped out by I Tuesday’s tornado. Only two houses remain, | | and they are badly damaged. Rev. Joseph | j Winston was killed. j Dispatches received at Washington, D. C., | I on the 25th inst., state that the Mississippi has ' broken over most of the levees, and that gover ! mentaidis necessary to prevent people of Lou- j | isiana from starving. Hon. J. F. King, membe of Congress from Louisiana, has received the : following telegram fromi Rodney, Miss: Kempe J j levee has given way. This makes the disaster ; complete and the Mississippi valley one vast ' inland sea. This will make the loss beyond cal ' culation, to say nothing of the loss life and suf fering of the people. The lofts of our gin- | houses and floating rafts will be the only place of abode.’* The Secretary of War sent to the Speaker of the House of Representatives on Tuesday a letter in which he notifies the House that the floods in the Mississippi valley from Vicks burg to New Orleans have reached a higher point than in 1882, that large numbers of people are in need of help, and suggesting j that the Secretary be permitted to expend $125,000 of the unexpended balance of the sums appropriated for the Ohio river suffer ers. New Orleans, March 25. — Gov. McEnery telegraphed to the Secretary of War today and the Louisiana Congressmen that the laboring population will require rations in amount the same as in 1882. He says the dis tress will be great and urges prompt action. The river has fallen inches and is now 2 inches below the rise of 1874. A dispatch from Columbia, S. S., March 24, says a terrific tornado, accompanied by peals of thunder, blinding flashes of lightning and a deluge of rain, passed around this county from two to five miles north of this city at 5 o’clock this morning. It entered this county from Lexington, where it had furiously torn through orchards and forests and prostrated houses. The two-story brick residence of Dr. J. F. Ensor, two miles north of Columbia, was unroofed, and the tin lodged in the trees a hundred yards away. The chimneys were hurled through the ceiling and the iron col umns of the piazza carried away. The family narrowly escaped. A number of smaller houses in the same neighborhood were wrecked and fencing and immense trees thrown about like chaff. The cyclone next struck Winhorn’s plantation, where it did serious damage. The adjoining farm of G. T. Taylor came next in the furious march of the tornado. Mr. Taylor’s dwelling, a frame building, was completely wrecked. His family were caught in the ruins in their night clothes and were all painfully hurt. His furniture and household goods were demolished and his stock of food scattered to the four winds. Several other buildings in the vicinity were blown down. The cyclone was funnel shaped, a quarter of a mile in width, and kept in the valleys. More serious reports are looked for. The entire population of this city were aroused by the fury of the storm. The British forces under Gen. Graham at tacked the rebels at Tamanieb on Thursday and routed them. The village was burned and the British force will return to Suakim. The campaign is considered at an end. For the Democratic Advocate, i Book Pees. t < t * A teacher” claims to have been misrep s RESENTED —MORAL OBLIGATIONS, ETC. I am sorry not to have seen Mr. M’s. reply b unt *l Monday week after it was published. 1 hasten to pay my respects. He claims to be very sensitive on the point . of morals. A preacher once made a remark y to this effect: ‘‘lf ever you tell a man the 3 truth touching his morals, get out of his way; he will hit you.’’ 1 # My opponent’s morals might le straight as t far as collecting the book fee is concerned; 2 but this I know; No man’s morals are pure . when he deliberately misrepresents his fellow * teacher as my opponent has me. It has al ways been admitted that want of strength in j argument is the only excuse an opponent can r show for misrepresenting the writings of the one onposed. The idea of any one being con ceited enough to think of blinding the intelli j gent public of Carroll in such a manner! I did not make the unqualified admission j he says I made. The admission is as follows: . “I admit that charging and collecting book fees is embarrassing to teachers, and some times a burden to hard-working, honest men.” j Sometimes means “now and then”—not fre f quently. In my limited understanding I thought the average reader would understand s that 1 wished to say it is only now and then , we find a man whose circumstances make the book-fee bill a burden to him. Ido not think ; the publishers of the Advocate changed my [ protest to say anything about the rich. I did j not say the rich fuss about the book fees. Neither do I believe that many of the poor ' wish the book fee abolished on the terms sug gested by the petition, else there would have been more signers to the petition. Every teacher, so far as I have heard, sent the peti \ tion out among their patrons, both the poor j and the rich. Why did not the poor sign it? . They knew they had the liberty, and if they wished it abolished according to the petition, they certainly would have availed themselves I of the opportunity. The “ifs” used so fre i quently by Mr. M. are well placed. I did not intend to accuse any teacher of immoral conduct by moral obligations. I . merely meant the practice of duties. I teach by the public-school law, collect my salary by ! the public-school law, and I expect to be gov erned by the same law that protects me. I j am under moral and legal obligations to carry out the contract with my employers, and if I I fail to do so, it is a moral and legal failure, r and Mr. M. may say it is “immoral ,” if he | chooses to use so strong a term. I will not be “ungentlemanly” or “immoral” enough to contradict. 1 believe Mr. M. to be the • only one who will try to dodge or dispute the L assertion. I believe every teacher will admit | that he ought to have taken the books from those who were able to pay the fees but re fused to do so; and if a man ought to do so, that shows a moral obligation, and those teachers admit the neglect of a moral obliga tion without waiting to be accused of it. I am not opposed to abolishing the book fee system, if it can be replaced by a better , system. If the petition had made way for patrons (who were able to do so) to buy their own | books, providing free books for those who j may be unable to buy their books, no one 1 could have advocated it more freely or ener : getically than your humble servant. It is amusing to think of the train of labo- ; rious reasoning deducted from my awkward I composing that led to the conclusion that I j ; am an opulent taxpayer. “I kinder wish 1 were;” but I am poorer than “Job’s turkey.” j She had physical strength to “hoe her own row” with her fellows; but financial circum stances compel me to teach and ill health i j confines me to Carroll, and imagination has to overlook a deal to expect a woman to be come “an opulent taxpayer” by the lucrative , business of teaching in this county. When I wrote it was not from selfish motives. 1 think ! it looks small to accuse me so. I hope if Mr. M. writes again that he will j refrain from misrepresenting, either inten- i tionally or unintentionally. We all know how easy it is to build a weak i argument and then knock it down. I smile to think of the pleasure it afforded Mr. M. I to take out the standing-ground of my admis- ; | sion and then bring out his feather and blow ! j it over. j I will have to put on my cap and answer j “An Ex-Teacher” next week.

Zimmerman and Christian Zimmerman, her husband, Margaret A. C. Keller, Lewis Plowman and Plow man, his wife, George Plowman and Plowman, his wife, Mary Scott and William W. Scott, her husband, Margaret Plowman, Susan House and House, her hus band, James A. Barry, Saranda Forsythe and George Forsythe, her husband, and the heirs and legal representatives of Julianna Fritz, deceased, defendants. The object of this suit is to procure a decree for a sale of certain real estate and improve ments thereon in Carroll Maryland, that were devised to Samuel Keller, now deceased, by the last will and testament of Henry Keller, deceased. The Bill states that by the last will and tes tament of Henry Keller, deceased, duly ad mitted to probate in the Orphans’ Court of Carroll county, a certain parcel of land, there in described, containing 70 or 80 acres of land, more or less, in Carroll county afore said, was devised to testator’s son, Samuel Keller, on condition that said Samuel, “his heirs, executors or administrators pay out the sum of $1,500, in payments of $150; the first payment to be paid one year after the death of testator’s wife, Elizabeth, and so on annu ally to testator’s five daughters, share and share alike, to wit: Mary Ann Plowman, wife of Noah Plowman; Lydia Elizabeth Ann Leister, wife of Nathaniel Leister; Margaret Ann Barry, wife of William Barry; Harriet Savilla Coker, wife of John Coker; and Sa randa Forsythe, wife of George Forsythe, to them, their heirs and assigns said payments to be and remain a lien on said land until said sum of $1,500 is fully paid and satisfied. ” That said Samuel Keller died intestate in Carroll county aforesaid, leaving Susan E. Keller, his widow, and the following children, his only heirs-at-law: Noah R. Keller, Mar garet A. C. Keller, and Deliah S. Keller; the last mentioned has since died intestate, un married, and without issue. Letters of ad ministration on the estate of said Samuel were granted to his widow, said Susan E. Keller; the latter has since married Christian Zimmerman; that said Susan E. Zimmerman and Christian Zimmerman, her husband, Noah R. Keller and Margaret A. C. Keller reside in Mason county, Illinois, and said Noah R. and Margaret A. C. Keller are in fants, under twenty-one years of age. That said Margaret Ann Barry was divorced from her husband, William Barry, and sub sequently died intestate, leaving a son, James A. Barry, her only heir-at-law, who resides in Baltimore county, Maryland. That said Elizabeth Keller died on or about March 18, 1883, and that more than one year has expired since the death of the said Eliza beth Keller, widow, as aforesaid, the time provided by said last will and testament for the payment of the annual payments therein mentioned. That said Saranda Forsythe resides in Lee county. Illinois, but the residence of her hus band, George Forsythe, is unknown. That said Mary Ann Plowman and herhus | band, Noah Plowman, are both dead, and i left surviving them the following six children i and only heirs-at-law: (1) Juliana Plowman, j who married a man named Fritz, both of whom are now dead; (2) Lewis Plowman, who has since married, but his wife’s Christian name is unknown, and they do not reside in the State of (3) George Plowman, ! who is married, but his wife’s Christian name I is unknown, and they reside in the State of ! Kansas; (4) Mary Scott and William W. Scott, | her husband, who reside in the State of Iowa: i (5) Margaret Plowman, who is married, but i her husband’s Christian and surname is un- I known, and he is believed to be dead, ami said Margaret lives in the State of Iowa; (6) I Susan Plowman, who married a man named I House, whose Christian name is unknown, j and they reside in the State of lowa, and said ; Susan is an infant, under the age of twenty - i one years. That administration upon the personal es | tate of Samuel Keller, deceased, was by the Orphans’ Court of Carroll county granted to Susan E. Keller, as appears by exhibit “C;” that the said Susan E. Keller (now Zimmer man) in her own right and as administratrix refuses to pay said annual payments, and said infant children and heirs-at-law have also refused, and still refuse, to do so. That the said plantation in said will men tioned has been and is now unoccupied by i said widow and children, now living, almost ( all the time since the death of said Samuel Keller, deceased; that they are advised and ] so charged that said respective payments are : liens upon said land mentioned in the will of said Henry Keller, deceased, and that they ; are entitled to have the same sold for the j payment thereof under a decree of this court. Bill then prays that said land, or so much thereof as may be necessary, be sold for the payment of said annual payments, for j general relief, and an Order of Publication against Susan E.

It is thereupon adjudged and ordered that the complainants, by causing a copy of this order to be inserted in some newspaper pub lished in Carroll county, Maryland, once in each of four successive weeks, before the 23d day of April, next; give notice to the said ab sent defendants of the substance of this bill, and warn them to appear in this court in per sou or by solicitor, on or before the 30th day of July, next, to answer the premises and show cause if any they have why a decree ought not to pass as prayed.
