Mr. Amos Shaffer raised on a lot contain ing 2V acres, belonging to Col. William P. Muulsby, adjoining the skating rink, 152 bushels and 12 pounds of oats. This is an average of nearly 08 bushels per acre; or, to be accurate, 07 bushels and 22 pounds. lanterns are coming into general use in Westminster. As the street lamps are not lighted lanterns are a necessity for those who have to be out at night. How would it do to hang lanters on lamp posts, in order that pe destrians may not run against the posts. The firm of Bocock & Brundige, wholesale cigar and tobacco dealers of this city, have dissolved partnership. Mr. Bocock has gone to Easton, Md., where he will engage in the same business.

Mr. Will C. Hayes, of the Bijou Theatre Company, died at Manassas. Virginia, on Sunday, in the 23d year of his age, of con sumption. He was the son of Walter C. and Amanda Hayes, and was a native of Man- j Chester, this county. Hu was an actor of | considerable merit, and captured the audience \ wherever he played. Another running race came off at Hamp- j stead on Friday afternoon of last week. A. j P. Marsh’s Daisy Dean and Philip J. Yost’s j Minnie B. met for the second time. The dis- | tancc was 000 yards, SIOO a side. Minnie B. j won easily in two straight heats. Each ani mal has now won a race. A furious storm started last week in the j West Indies, came up the coast and spread over the country nearly as far west as the Mississippi. The fury abated considerably in its progress, and the storm reached this section on Monday night. The wind blew at a great velocity and old trees and fences were blow down, while a considerable amount ofrainTell. Mrs. Maria Matthews, wife of Mr. George W. Matthews, of this city, died early on Tuesday morning rather suddenly from apo plexy. On Sunday night she was apparently well, but toward morning she was stricken and became unconscious, in which condition she remained until her death. Mrs. Matthews was aged 65 years, 4 months and 15 days. Her funeral took place on Wednesday. The Democratic County Central Committee met at the Court House on Monday, and elect ed the following offiers: Chairman, B. P. Crouse, of Westminster; Secretary, Charles R. Favour, of Sykesville; Treasurer, Hugo E. Fiddis, of Westminster. The Democratic candidates met with the committee, and made arrangements to have an active and aggres sive campaign. Reports from all parts of the county were encouraging for a grand victory next month. The Republican committee and candidates met the same day. About half past 12 o’clock last Friday night Constable John A. Macintosh wentto the rear of Peter Leidlich’s saloon, (Wilson House) to watch some suspicious individuals who were over at the Railroad House. Just as he took a position a window of the Wilson House was raised and a jug of whisky was handed out. Then another jug, oysters, &c. : all of which Macintosh and a companion took. Next came the individual who had handed | out the articles, who was collared by Macin- i tock, and who was discovered to be George j Bitzel. Bitzel was lodged in jail, and on Sat- ! urday morning held by Justice P. B. Mike- ; sell for the action of the grand jury. There will be a grand four-arch tournament ■ at Halstead’s Driving Park, at Arlington, ! Baltimore county, next Thursday, that prom ises to be the affair of the kind in this section of the state for a long time. Twenty Knights i from Maryland and Virginia are to contest for the honor of crowning a Queen of Love and Beauty and Maids of Honor, and four valuable prizes. The tourney is under the management of Mr. Wm. B. Pearce, of this county, the well-known tournament rider. The judges will be ex-Judge Grason, Frank Brown, Esq., and Jacob M. Pearce, Esq., while Thos. E. Parlett, of Baltimore, will be | chief marshal, assisted by Messrs. Chas. R. j Favour and Caleb S. Hobbs. The charge to j the Knights will be delivered by George M. ! Pearce, Esq., of this city. At night there is j to be a grand coronation ball, parcipitatcd in by the beauty and fashion of Carroll, Balti more and Howard counties and Baltimore j city. Full brass and string bands will furnish | music for the tourney and the ball, Ur Course of Winter Entertainments, i To supply a want in the social and intellec tual life in Westminster in the winter season, so universally admitted, Messrs. A. 11. Mer rill and C. H. Vanderford propose conduct ing a series of five entertainments, to be given on or about the following dates —No- vember. 24, December 15, January 5, Janu ary 20 and February 9. While the program has not been definitely arranged, the follow ing attractions have rather been decided upon —Rock Band Concert Company, of London, i England; Redpath Concert Company; of j Boston, Mass.; Stuart Rdgers, humorous re- ; citer and impersonator; Sau-Ah-Brah, native j India humorist, illustrator and impersonator ; I Henry Dixon Jones, professor of elocution of Harvard University. All the entertainments will be of a high character, and such that are rarely ever given outside of large cities. To secure the course, the committee require that a sufficient number of reserved seat tickets be engaged in advance to insure them against financial loss, and have addressed circulars to a number of citizens. It is difficult to think of everybody in mailing circulars, and all who desire to engage tickets can address postals to box 100, Westminster postoffice, stating the number of tickets want ed. Those who received circulars are re quested to make reply at once, as the matter must be decided notlaterthan Monday. Any further delay would preclude the engagement of the artists named above. A number of tickets have been engaged, and considerable interest is manifested. Promptness in en gaging tickets is ell that is needed to make the “Winter Entertainments” a success. Reserved seats tickets for the season are $2. Personal. Ur. Orlando Mitchell, of Marshal, Illinois, smd brother of Mr. J. A. Mitchell now resid ing in Westminster, was married at Cincin nati, Ohio, on the Bth inst,, to Mrs. Minnie Robinson, a daughter-in-law of John Robin son, the wealthy showman. Mr. Charles K. Spalding and wife, of Day ton, Ohio, are visiting at Dr. J. Howell Billiagslea’s. Mr. J. W. Moore, of Baltimore, and a re cent graduate of Western Maryland College, was in Westminster on Wednesday, and at tended the wedding of Miss Harvene Bowers and Rev. Mr. Levan. Covington Barnit-/., Esq., and family re trieved to Baltimore this week, for the winter. Mr. Philip Reese and family will remove to ithe same city to-day. Mr. James B. Bocock and family left on Thursday for Easton, Md., where they will reside hereafter. Mr. George W. Harris, formerly of this county, is the Republican nominee for clerk of the circuit court jo Washington county. Da.v P. O. Item*. We spoke last week of a nicely balanced tongue uttering conciliation, and we would now further say that Mr. Baosman knows well how to administer candidatial antidotes for primary disaffectious, just lately known to the faculty; and we think the indications are that, with the approach of the bracing No vember air, the malady will be dispelled, and there will be a hearty family reunion at the polls next month, with quite a number of our good step-brothers from the Republican side of the house. This is quite natural, for our entire ticket lias the best of record, and like will flow to like; and we feci warranted in saying, as we once said to our honorable repre sentative, “nomination means election.” We have ever breathed a h-u-s-h where we heard a discord, not the less in the big political family, because there the more needed, to the end that the majority may wield the sceptre of liberty over a peacefully quiescent whole. In answer to a second private letter on the Bth inst., we are in receipt, on the 10th, of the reply of Hon. A. Leo. Knott, that A. W. Ways, carrier on mail route 10,268, will re ceive the amount for carrying we figured up in said letter. This, of course, makes our carrier feel a bit bigger as a government offi cial, and we may expect to hear him say, with more nonchalance , “clear the track for the United Stales mail.” We deem it pertinent to give our “prayer union” encouraging notice, and while a pray ing union we would say don t forget to sing. Wo have heard it said till we have no patience with the remark that “Morgan's Chapel can t sing—they holler.” We know better; they can sing, and should sing; and we say to them—sing, sing as Paul said, “with the spirit and with the understanding,” the soft, sweet murmur-music that steals through the soul like the harmony of spheres, winning it from error. If you have been taught to “holler” never mind it, sing softly; if you have heard bass performed by Geo. Pickett’s saw on a pine board, forget it; if you have caught alto from the musical entertainments given by Frank I. Leatherwood’s mule, re mand it back to the professor; if you have ac quired soprano from the paper mill whistle, leave its screaming, piercing peals without imitators. You can sing, and we know it; and we want to hear some of the music with which floats along the spirit that we know not from whence it cometh nor whither it goeth. We have just heard some good singing at Eb enezer Church with soul-life in it, and listened to an acceptable sermon by Rev. Mr. Brown ing, of which space here will not admit ot an outline, while the last piece of music, “Take the name of Jesus with you,” was, for the sermon, a most appropriate closing, the more that it was so well performed. Larkin A. Shipley is building a dwelling, which, when finished, will be a handsome ac quisition to “Daniel.” Frank Lewis has his saw mill on rail, his circular saw buzzing out the boards, and his grist mill fast assuming manufacturing shape. Chas. H. Buckingham has nearly finished his new dwelling; James Pickett is pressing his dwelling rapidly forward, and G. W. Mul linix is building a wagon house and corn crib and other outbuildings. The march of im provement is onward here. Seeding is, or might as well be, done here. Early sown wheat is looking well, with a few exceptions seeming to be drought damaged. Nolvs from Lisbon. Howard County. There is but little transpiring in this region that will interest the general reader. The Republicans in this county have, at this writ ing, failed to place a ticket in the field. They have some good men in their ranks, yet they all know how hopeless the task to try to elect j their ticket, provided they could succeed in ! getting the consent of a suitable number of \ candidates to make up a ticket. Why not j endorse the ticket the Democratic party has I placed in the field? The vaporings of John | A. Logan at the Eutaw House has caused a ! smile to ripple over some of their faces, and j a ray of hope to illume the gloom of their I sky. Hold hard, brethren ! the hope is born !to perish. It will be a “cold day” when the j state of Maryland is handed over to your j tender mercies again. The party of the people | will never forget to remember the past —the I dark days that tried men’s pockets as well as their souls. Wheat seeding goes on slowly; the rains have thrown us later than was expected or desired, and there is much to be sown yet. The early sown is up well and looking finely; considerable of it, on rolling land, is up in the gutters washed by last week’s rains. A protracted meeting has been in progress here in the M. E. Church for a week. There will be an all-day’s meeting at Union Chapel, Glenwood, on Sunday, 18th; Rev. J. Lassell, pastor. We see in county and Baltimore papers glowing accounts of the heavy crops of corn all over the state. We venture the assertion that at husking time many farmers wil! find their estimate too high. The crop is no better than last season’s, it as good. The storm in August that blew the corn down, in many places flat to the earth, was an injury to it, retarding the full development of the ears, followed as it was by a spell of dry weather. We are no croaker, but protest against the reports of superficial observers. It is an in jury to the farmer. Can Maryland farmers grow wheat at 80 cents a bushel, hay at sl2 per ton and corn at $2 per barrel ? It so they will, like the “wild asses, have to sniff the air,” but they will never fatten on it. Illinois wi 1 place on the market a large yield of corn. Kansas—acorn-growing state —and Nebraska papers place the yield of their respective states—-the former two-thirds, the latter a half crop. From private sources from the Valley of Virginia, the best of limestone land, we learn the crop is a short one. A band of Gypsies has been encamped near j i Cooksville for nearly three weeks, and have j been visited by numbers of persons to have 1 their fortunes told. “What fools these mor ! tals be.” They are not the genuine Romany | Rye, and among them is a full-blooded negro. One of their women was severely burned on t Thursday night of last week. Her clothing caught from a spark while she was lying in | front of the fire asleep. Dr. A. Riggs ren i dered her medical aid. Patapsco Items. Farmers are generally done seeding and are beginning to shuck and gather their corn crop, which is fair. The death of Mrs. Susan Caple, consort of Wm. Caple, Sr., which occurred unexpectedly on last Monday night, has cast a cloud of gloom of sorrow over our entire community, i and left a void in her large family of children j and friends that can never be filled. She was | about seventy years of age and leaves a hus ! band, three" sons and eight daughters to j mourn the loss of a faithful wife, a kind and i indulgent mother, whose strongest sentiments ! in life were uprightness of character, kind | heartedness and a strong Jove and devotion j for her. family. The funeral services took | place on Wednesday evening at Pleasant | Grove Church. Rev. J. T. Ward, of West ! minster, delivered the funeral discourse in an able and impressive manner from the 10th and 12th verses of the 90th Psalm. The fun eral cortege was large and solemn. At Wesley Chapel, the school commission ers assisted partly by the citizens, have lately finished a tine brick school house, ample in size, with belfry, and furnished complete. I We know of no section of country that has j made more rapid progress in improvements, j within the last five years. A new stone church j has been erected near the site of the old ! (Brown's meeting house) church, and almost I every land holder has built line new dwelling | houses, barns, &c, viz. Messrs. John Smith, I Silas Martin, Cornelius Armacost have each I built fine houses and large bank barns, and Messrs. George Stull, Samuel Elserode, Lewis Leppo and Mr. Spahr, have each built new dwellings, while Messrs. ex-Judge M. F. Allgire and Peter Buchman have recently erected bank barns. Horse maladies and diseases among cows have been somewhat prevalent in our section of the county, during the summer and fall. Horses have been attacked in various ways, some with stricture of the bowels, some with scarletina aginosa, or scarlet fever, and some with enzotie typhoid catarrh ; and Mr. Jesse Elserode’s cattle were all attacked with ca tarrhal fever. We learn that Mr. NoahStocks dale, our Veterinarian, attended all the above cases with marked success. Mr. Elserode, however, lost one cow which had gone too long without attention. Death of Dr. 11. E. Sorrin. The funeral of Dr. H. E. Norris, formerly of New Windsor, but who had been practicing medicine for about eight years in Marietta, Pa., previous to his death, (which occurred on the 10th) took place from the Presbyterian Church, New Windsor, on Wednesday morn ing, the Rev. Mr. Murray officiating. Hand some floral tributes of respect from the Ma rietta High School and private citizens ac companied his remains. Dr. Norris was a gradnata of the class of 1871, of Western Maryland College, being its Salutatorian. In 1873 he graduated in medi cine at the University of Maryland, standing second in his class. After practicing his profession for about two years in New Wind sor he removed to Marietta, succeeding Dr. W. S. Trout, of that place. Immediately af ter locating there he was elected a member of the Lancaster County Medical Society, over which the venerable Dr. John 8. Atlee then presided, and in which he took an active part. In 1878 he was appointed surgeon of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, and held the position until his death. He was elected a member of the Marietta School Board in 1883 for three years, aud \yas selected as its president at its first meeting. Brilliant Festival at SI. James - . One of the most brilliant festivals ever known in our community was the universal verdict of the five hundred or more present at St. James’ M. E. Church (South) on Sat urday, October 10th. It is simply impossible to try to describe to those who were not present the gorgeous display of flowers artis tically arranged by the ladies. It would have been creditable to florists of renown. The walls were laden with wreaths of evergreen, mingled with the choice flowers of the season; the stage was arched with magnificent cut flowers, from the center of which hung a beautiful bell. Another mammoth bell of evergreens and snowdrops hung gracefully from the center of the church. The chande liers were entertwined with running vines, each globe holding a beautiful bouquet. We give you the program. To speak personally of any one’s success and not all, would be in vidious, as there was not one single failure in the whole program. It was bewildering to some of the gray-haired in the audience to hear the eloquence and oratory of such charm ing young ladies and gallant gentlemen. '1 he singing, under the instruction of Mrs. P. J. Bennett, was highly complimented. A class of 30, under 10 years of age, led by Blanche Bennett, gave pleasure to the old, as their well-timed voices kept time with the organ. The Rev. Dr. Jelly, of New Windsor Col lege, addressed the school. It was the first time many of the audience had the pleasure of hearing the Doctor, and it will never be forgotten by many. Ho spoke eloquently to the young of the sphere they would be called on to till in life when he and the gray-haired ones were sleeping in the tomb. He spoke forcibly of the battle the church had to fight against socialism and the devil. The Doctor seemed to throw bis whole soul in the enter tainment. At one time he had the entire audience in a roar of laughter, when suddenly he would open another battery and smiles would be turned to tears. Some of the more tender-hearted cried right out, while the tears were fast chasing each other down the cheeks of the most stern. The Rev. Dr. Jones was also pleasing to his hearers. He held a beautiful hymn-book in his hand, which he said he would present to the scholar answering his question first— “ Which is the shortest verse in the Bible ?” Blanche Bennett captured the prize. The program finished, the efficient and be loved Superintendent, Mr. E. E. Lovall, mar shalled his school, numbering 117, in line, and headed by the noted band of Union Bridge, marched in review of the multitude. Now came the enjoyable time for the scholars. They were formed in lino, and one hundred pounds of candy and a cart-load of delicious cakes, provided by the Christian parents, wore distributed, the outsiders receiving their share. Though the sun had sunk far below the hill tops and the evening tints had already colored the western horizon, the old and the young tarried as they chatted and enjoyed their sweetmeats. An observer could have but one opinion, and that was, every one was happy and their guardian angel has possession of their hearts. Baltimore and \V ashington cities were represented among the fair young ladies. The school at St. James’ is in a most pros perous condition, probably numbering more small children than any school in the county, and is under the care of a corps of able in structors. The school was successfully kept up during the past winter. The prospects are brighter than ever for the school. May God’s blessing continue to rest on St. James’ Sunday School.

Mr. and Mrs. Levan left on the one-thirty train for an extended bridal tour of several weeks. A number of young friends accompanied them to the depot, send ing after them a shower of rice and the tradi tional old slipper for good luck and prosperi ty. The bride was the recipient of a large number of handsome and beautiful presents, including silver, irridescent and cut glass, hand painted china, brass and satin, hand some pannel and easel pictures, beautiful specimens of hand embroidery, Kinsington painting and arasene work from a number of young friends, and the more homely but use ful articles, table linen and many articles too numerous to mention. Mrs. Levan leaves a number of sincere friends, and will take with her to her new home many kind wishes for her future happiness. I’nlnl Railroad Accident. Edward Zepp, aged 20 years, living with his widowed mother, and in the employ of Mrs. M. A. Waters, was struck and instantly killed at Hood's Mills, by engine No. 822 of the B. k 0., while attempting to cross the track in front of said engine, on the evening j of October 12. The same engine struck and severely injured a colored man named Wm. j H. Dorsey, in the employ of Mr. Geo. Day, !in Howard county. Both of the men had come to the station with milk for tbn milk train, which is due at 6.32. The special train, which engine 822 was hauling, contained President Garrett and other officials of the ; road, who were returning from a trip of in spection, and it passed Hood’s Mills between five and six minutes ahead of the milk train time. The two men, thinking it the milk train, crossed the track in front as is their custom, and were struck. Justice Charles R. Favour, of Sykesville, summoned a jury of inquest, with John P. Tyrrell foreman, who, after viewing the body of young Zepp, ad journed until the 14th, when the evidence was i heard, and a verdict given that Edward Zepp came to his death by being struck by engine 822 of the B. & O. It. R., from his own neg ligence in crossing the track in face of an ap proaching train, supposing it to be the milk ■ train, and censured the officials who were on the train for allowing it to be run at such an unusual rate of speed when running as a sec tion of another train, and so near on the time of the train known as the milk train. i Orphans* Court.

Edward Hershey, aged nearly 18 years, son of David Hershey, who was killed by the railroad about one year ago, brought some potatoes to the depot for the engineer, W. R. Cutty, with whom he was well acquainted. Mr. Hershey was cautioned by the fireman not to attempt to throw the potatoes on the engine while running, but he did not heed the warning, and stepped on the milk stand and tried to throw the potatoes (one bushel) between the tender and engine. He failed to do it, lost his balance and was thrown along the side of the track, while one of the cars caught him and pulled him under, crushing his left arm and side, and also causing a scalp wound of about six inches, besides other in juries. He was conscious for about ten minutes, and died in three-quarters of an hour after he was hurt. He wits buried in the New Freedom cemetery. The New Freedom Lyceum will dispose of the following subject next Monday evening— “ Was the discovery of America a benefit to the world?” The balance of the programme will be —Humorous reading, by Wm. Shultz; oration, by Wm. Manifold, subject “True Nationality,” and music by the society. Mr. Fortner is erecting a building for a hotel, but, as far as we can understand, he is minus the license. The new station house is going up slowly, but will be handsome after completion. Mayberry Items. On Monday night last a very violent storm passed over this place, doing considerable damage by blowing down trees, corn shocks, &c., followed with a light fall of rain during the night and Tuesday morning. On Sunday evening, September 27, while Mr. Willie Keeffer was on his way home from Banst Church, a buggy ran into his buggy and bent a spindle and smashed down a wheel. On Thursday evening of last week some thief, or thieves, stole from the residence of Mrs. Rodkey, an aged lady living about one mile north west of this place, a large lot of turnips and cabbage. A strong suspicion prevails as to the guilty parties. Chestnuts and shellbarks are very plentiful in this region this year. Our butcher, Mr. David Slonecker, is doing a very thriving business. There will be preaching in Mayberry Church of God on Wednesday evening, October 21, at 7.30 o’clock, by Elder Winbiggler, of Uniontown.

Staunton, Va., Oct. 15. — Shortly after twelve o'clock to-day, and just after Gov. Cameron had finished his address to the vet erans, a shooting tragedy occurred in the art rotunda of the fair grounds. William Mon tezuma Brown, a popular young farmer of Augusta county, was promenading through the rotunda with his wife hanging on one of his arms and leading their little child with his other hand, when Stuart Koiner, the owner of the farm adjoining Brown's, walked up, without a word, and placing a pistol against Brown’s body, shot him in the breast, two inphes below the heart. The wife tried to save j her husband’s life, atfd seized the murderer. I A' captain of artillery, J,’ T- Long, struck Koiner over the head and disarmed him- Brown was taken into the open air and died in a few minutes. His body was put in a coffin and deposited in the court-house. Koiner is in jad, but there is the deepest ex citement among the county people, and the threats of lynching are so loud that Mayor Gordon has sworn in a guard of 35 men for the jail. Koiner is a member of a prominent and wealthy family. Some years ago, when at college, he killed a fellow-student in a quarrel, and after a long trial was acquitted- Hjs friends plaim h e >3 flf unsQt) n d nphd and that will be the plea in his defense. There had been an old grudge between hint and Brown, On Wednesday night a number of female scholars were returning from school at Oak dale, Pa., when they were met by two white boys and one colored boy, aged about 18 years, who attacked them with revolvers. All escaped but Annie McKerap, 14 years old, who was terribly assaulted and left uncon scious. She was found by friends, and the assailants, after a long searelp arrested- U I is feared that the girl will nof recover. Lynch ing is freely talked of • Letter from Texas. [Correspondence of the Democratic Advocate.] Stockdale, Wilson Co.. Texas, Oct. 4,1885. Messrs. Editors and Readers;— The time and attention of the people here is now entirely absorbed picking, hauling, ginning and marketing their cot ton. Dinners are crowded with work, and the pres ent indication justifies the belief that some of us will be financially able to invest some of our sur plus cash in a dozen apples and a pint of whiskey at Christmas. For my part. I feel (in some respects) like a four teen-year-old Nimrod who has just finished putting an "awful load” into his invincible single barrel, and while lie holds the cherished weapon across his breast with his left hand, he heaves a sigh of satisfaction and victory as he looksoverhead among the branches of a big hickory tree and counts seven lithsome gray squirrels, springing from bough to bough and gleefully devouring their favorite re past. all unconscious of the murderous gun and de termined boy below them, who is so soon lo sever "the brittle thread of their lives.” and turn them over to the tender care of his loving mother. He sees visions of squirrel hams floating in rich gravy flavored with "passly,” and great drops of tobacco juice ooze from the corners of his sweet (?) mouth; and then their pelts will make him a snug cap for next winter. He thrusts a finger and thumb of the right band into his vest pocket; he meditates a mo ment; a sudden pallor creeps overhis ruddy cheeks, quickly followed by a burning heat that threatens spontaneous combustion, as he desperately dives to the bottom of all his pockets and groans. The battle of Waterloo is lost; the Alamo has fallen; he has lost his percussion caps. Moral—our cotton press is broken: but repairs are on the way, and ere the reader scans these lines our gins will be roaring like a nest of ten thousand infuriated bumble bees. And I feel now like one of these saccharine gath erers had stung me near the right optic. Our neighborhood is overrun with an epidemic of purulent opthalmia. and sore eyes, like the law to work public roads, does not excuse millers. A series of misfortunes has befallen a neighboring miller this fall. One of his sons jumped off the boiler and wounded himself severely in the leg with a pocket knife. Shortly after he received a severe blow on the head by a handspike getting caught in a running belt Another son had three of his fingers crushed in the gearing of the press. Recently the proprietor got his right handand fore arm terribly mangled and broken in the gin. In Goliad county, recently, a deputy sheriff at tempted fo arrest a negro horsethief. The negro arose from his pallet on the porch, hallooed halt, fired at the deputy and ran out of sight. Mr. Wil liams (the deputy sheriff) was severely wounded in the right arm and side. The shock on Mr. W's. arm discharged his cocked Winchester rifle, which mor tally wounded the negro, who was found dead the next day. Mr. W. did not know his own gun had fired (the reports were simultaneous) until the dead negro was found and W’s. gun was seen to be empty. The arrest was attempted at night. The deputy died from his injuries in a few days, and Goliad county has lost a model young citizen and an officer who shirked not death in the discharge of his offi cial duties. Let it not be inferred, dear reader, that Texas is a human slaughter pen. Remember that two million people are living quietly and peaceably within the confines of this vast state. An individual's nation ality, religion or politics does not affect his safety here, and wheelbarrow-loads of money changes hands in the business centres every day during the cotton season. It is not transported in wheelbar rows, however, and I am not drumming foremi. grants. Weather fair; temperature at this hour, 7 p. m.,70°- Petek Barnes. From Taneytown Cabbage Heads. To the Editors of the Advocate: —Having noticed the piece in your paper speaking of a certain company of our young men here as the “Taneytown Cabbage Heads,” would say in reply that, as for any disturbance being created by said parties, is all nonsense. The merchant spoken of as having been insulted is, in reality, the insulter. Having accused one of our young men of being a fabricator, was asked to place his grounds for such a re mark, which he was unable to do. Why? Because, believing the remark would never be repeated, and that he would never be called on to prove it, took this means to belittle a gentleman in the eyes of the people. Now, there is this much about it: If a person is al lowed to slander without restraint, and show that the so-called Cabbage Heads would be thought of far and wide as a set of rowdies, simply by the one who is the inferior. But we would say in conclusion that, notwith standing the appellation of Cabbage Heads, we know the laws of etiquette sufficiently to mind our own business. Taneytown Cabbage Heads. Claimants to Balto. City Property. The Daily Courier, of Rome, Georgia, says that Col. J. G. Yeiser left that place a few days ago for the home of his parents, in Dan ville, Kentucky, where a family reunion will be held and a consultation will take place in regard to their claim to a large and valuable portion of real estate in Baltimore city held under a 99-year lease, which is about to ex pire. There are about 25 persons in the fam ily who claim to be the heirs. The story as related is that Captain Philip Yeiser, an offi cer in the war of the Revolution of ’76, and grandfather of Col. J. G. yeiser, left his home in Baltimore in 1778 and settled in the wilds of Kentucky. Before leaving he leased for 99 years a tract of 21 acres of land, then on the outskirts of Baltimore, on which the rent was paid for 25 years. The land has been cut up into lots and sold by the lessee to various persons. It is stated that it is now in the heart of the city, and covered with blocks of buildings worth several millions of dollars. No definite location of the property is given. Bight Password—Wrong Breath. From the Baltimore Evening Star. Pat was the outside Sentinel in a Good Templars Lodge, and one night a brother gave his rap. Pat applied his ear to the hole to get the password; it was all right, hut he scented a suspicious smell, so he said: “Repate, please.” Then putting his mouth to the hole, he got the full benefit of the breath, and said: “You can’t come in. You have got the right word, but the wrong breath.” That’s what’s the matter with these gentle men who arc posing as reformers. Their cry is “Reform,” but they have the Republican breath. According to the editor of Church Press, starvation is little less than a literal fact in the P. E. Church. One clergyman, who gave up a $4,000 position in a business house to enter the church, has, during the ten years of his incumbency, never received more than SSOO a year. He has a wife and four children to support, and is highly praised by his bishop and his parishioners. Another, with a wife and six cnsldren, received last year less than S4OO of the SSOO promised him, though he has parishioners that can afford to summer at the seashore. A wedding in good society took place on Tuesday at Honesdale, Penna., and the re ception was largely attended. Several hours after the repast about thirty of the guests were taken violently sick, showing symptoms of poisoning. Gen. Fitzhugh Lee, Democratic candidate for Governor of Virginia, had a grand recep tion at Lynchburg on Thursday, and was es corted to the fair grounds by 1,000 horsemen. There he was greeted by 10,000 people. Ivor Williams, of Wilkesbarre, Pa., door tender in the Dodson Mine of the Plymouth Coal Company, on Thursday fell down the shaft, a distance of 600 feet. His body was crushed into a shapeless mass. Henry R. Corle, secretary and treasurer of the gas light company at Quincy, 111., is charged with defalcations covering a period of eleven years, and amounting to from $22,- 000 to $30,000. • A. W. Shaw, widely known as “Josh Bil lings,” died on Wednesday in Monterey, Cal ifornia, of apoplexy. Five Chinamen were burned to death by a fire in a laundry, at Oakland, California, early on Tuesday morning. Epidemics of diphtheria and typhoid fever prevail at Kittanning, Pa. THE MARKETS.
