Sykesville Items.
(From on roll! Ucffu lar Correspondent.]
Mr. Edwin M. Mellor has completed and
occupied his new residence. It is beautifully
situated on one of the many hills that com
prise the village. The stylo is peculiarly
Merchant Mellor s own, with a little Gothic
thrown in. The house fronts northwest, with
gable front and side or back building, three
stories high in all. The main building is 39
by 38; side building 22 feet, with broad portico
extending around the entire front. On the
first floor is a spacious parlor, a neatly ar
ranged library, a long dining room, a fine
kitchen with pantry adjoining. Water is sup
plied, of excellent quality, by a pump in the
kitchen, which has attached a dry dairy in
the cellar underneath. There are eight rooms
on the two upper floors, with plenty of air
and sunshine, and easy of access by a broad
winding stairway from the hall below. The
structure is frame, with part ornamental
shingle work in the gable front. It is painted
steel gray with brown and red trimmings.
The interior is in oak, cherry and walnut.
The carpenter work was done by the Selby
Bros., of Eldcrsburg, and reflects great credit
on them, as nothing is slighted. The plaster
ing was done by Phebus and the painting by
Powell. The grounds and surroundings, when
properly ornamented, which Mr. Mellor ex
pects to do at once, will make it one of the
most desirable residences in Sykesvillc.
Mr. Jas. S. Hyatt, who was recently ap
pointed magistrate, has qualified, and now
commands the peace and respect of the citi
zens of Sykesville. The appointment is a
good one, and what we long needed. Squire
Hyatt will still continue his trade as carpenter
and builder, and proudly points to his work
in the village as a guarantee that he can do a
good job. We saw him the other day with
saw, square, pencil and paper. We suppose
he was getting ready to saw out his first
summons. What we want now is a good
constable, but it is hard to find a man with
sand enough in his craw to take the position.
Politics are plentiful, but in more soothing
strains. The action of the Carroll delegates
in the state convention (though a little late)
has tilled in what promised to be some bad
washouts in the party. Mr. Frank Brown is
satisfied with the result, and will giye the
ticket a hearty support, H&irtifi a man to
kick'or squeal when setback, but is a firm
believer in the motto “If at first you don’t
succeed, try, try again,” and stand firm
to bis party and its principles, and work with
out being appealed to for the success of the
Democratic party in the county and state.
Mr. Win. P. Gorsuch, Jr., has purchased
from Mrs. M. A. Voorhees her farm of 130
acres, near Sykesville, for $7,800, or SOO per
acre. This was part of “Springfield,” and is
a very rich and productive little farm. Mr.
Gorsuch will occupy it at once, and will build
a handsome residence in the early spring.
Sir. Gorsuch is prominently mentioned for
the next House of Delegates, with Mr. J. M.
Dorsey for sheriff. Both gentlemen have a
good following, and will probably shake hands ;
as to the result, as it generally desired to see
no more contests in the district. J
The new rectory of Holy Trinity parish, ax
“Groveland,” near Sykesville, is about coa/i
--pletcd, and will shortly be occupied by tme
rector, Rev. S. D. Hall. ,
On Wednesday, August 10th, there will be
held in the beautiful grounds of the neiy rec
tory of Holy Trinity Parish, of Sykesville, a
church reunion and lawn party, beginning at
4 o’clock in the evening. A band on music /
will be in attendance. Ice Cream jand cake/
will be sold for the benefit of Abe orga£
of the church.
The Baltimore Convocation wjll hold ses
sions at Sykesville and Eldcrsburg from Ahe
23rd to the 26th of August. Interestingser
mons will be preached. f

Though the past month has beeryhoted for
severe storms and heavy nains, ye/no serious

the old minister who • cr forgot
arriving ai any place to state that he was
Hnll in the Bible business. The agent replied
Hhat the Bible business was certainly a very
f good one, but thought that the fertilizer busi
ness ranked next to it, and we believe he was
about right. So then, the fertilizer agent is
not so harmful a creature after all.
Warfieldsburg Items.
While our farmers are very much down
hearted about their wheat crop, their courage
is •somewhat renewed as they look forward to
theircorn, which has all appearances of being
an abundant yield.
William Townshend,who left here last spring
to take a situation in Baltimore, is visiting
friends in this place. We arc glad to learn
that he has a good situation and is doing well.
Henry Koontz. while mowing on the farm
of Isaac Forest, had a slight sun stroke and
fell off the mower. He was taken to the
house and recovered in about an hour. We
are pleased to state he is improving.
Our Band received their new uniforms last
Saturday, and at night gave the villagers a
general sernade in their new rig. Their shirts
and pantaloons were made by Sharrer Bros.,
Westminster, and give perfect satisfaction.
The cups and belts were bought of Henderson
k Co., Philadelphia. The band intends hold
ing a festival for their benefit on the nights
of August 11th, 12th and 13lh, near Warfields
burg. Music furnished by the band each
evening.
A hog belonging to Henry M. Koontz died
suddenly with a very peculiar disease, it being
sick but ten minutes and fell over dead.
Lots of our young folks 'attended Linwood
.campmeeting last Sunday.

Lust Sunday dawned fair. The morning
sermon was given by Rev. B. F. Bock, of
Harrisburg. His subject was treated in a
masterly manner. Quite a number of minis
ters from abroad are present. Their preach
ing has been of an excellent character, spirit
ual, and edifying to the Christian. Christ has
been preached os the central figure of life.
The best of order prevails. Preparations are
being made to hold a grand children’s meet
ing next Sunday afternoon. Let there be a
great gathering of the children at that time.

G-yll• Walter, in this city and
couiaty, and whew.veiwßis known, as “Rhod
dy/the Bird M Mistier,” has been at Atlantic
City for a time'with his novel swimming ma
chine. He hits attracted considerable atten
tion, and betjn giving and taking jokes with
I the many guests. As to his swimming ma
chine he w&s always serious, and always con
fident as/o its merits. As to one of Rhoddy’s
performances, we quote the following from an
Atlantfc City letter in last Sunday’s Phila
delphia Press;
‘‘An inventive genius has been hanging
around the bathing houses for some days past
explaining to the idlers a patent swimming
Apparatus that would enable the water tourist
ho be his own boat in traveling from place to
place. Goaded on by the bantering of all
with whom he came in contact, he yesterday
offered a wager that he could tow two miles
out to sea and return a lifeboat containing
from eight to twelve full grown men. The
bet was accepted, and this afternoon he tied
himself in a reclining position on a netting
stretched between two air tight cylinders, and
buckled on his feet two large, curious shoes,
the uppers of which were canvas attached to
wooden soles, and projecting from the latter
were two hinged flanges that spread out when
forced against water by a kick of the foot,
similar to that used in swimming, and folding
up again by a counter action. With these
novel pedal appliances he propels himself
through the water head first. When all was
ready he was lifted into the water, and the
rope from the lifeboat made fast to him. The
boat contained nine large men, who weighed
together over 1,600 pounds, and when the
word was given the human tug began kicking
the water in a manner that made it boil, and
the lifeboat and its load moved out to sea with
about the same rapidity a boat is usually
rowed. The large waves washed over the in
genious swimmer, and he was every other
moment submerged from view, but his feet
forgot not their cunning, and in less than an
hour the boat and its human propellor had
finished their trip.”

Swindled Out of $760.
Mr. Abraham Shriner, a farmer living near
Copperville, in Taneytown district, was
swindled out of $750 on last Tuesday by a
couple of clever rascals. Suspicion points to
two men who stopped at Hotel Albion on
Saturday and remained until Tuesday evening.
They registered as I). Jones and Thomas
Phugle, Baltimore, though it is impossible to
r written. It looks like Phugle. Jones was at
the Albion on July W. and on that occasion
registered as D. Randall. These men hired
a pair of horses and a buggy from James E.
Smith on Tuesday. They returned in the
evening, sent the team to the stable by a col
ored servant, and left the same evening.
On Sunday two men met Mr. Shriner at 1
Lin wood Camp. One represented himself as
a son of Mr. Hiram Davis, of Union Bridge,
and the other as a Mr. Cornell. They pre
tended to want to buy a farm, and made ar
rangements for Mr. Shriner to show them
around his neighborhood on Tuesday. They
went to Mr. Shriner’s at the appointed time.
During their stay they mentioned a college
scheme, and wanted Mr. Shriner to act as
agent. They made the proposal very tempt
ing, and he agreed to accept. He was then
told that he would have to show SI,OOO before
he could be appointed. Mr. Shriner said he
had no money about the house, but hud $750
in bank at Taneytown. The sharpers then
said they would advance the necessary $250,
and Mr. Shriner went and drew his money
from the bank. This the swindlers got and
drove off, promising to call again. They
have not called yot.

The turnpike through Back River Neck is

Messrs. Editors :—Farmers are harvest
ing, and the crops are good, both of grain and
hay. Now you hear the steam threshers all
over the land. Grain is turning out well, but
the corn and potatoes are badly injured by
the dry and hot vfea&ep,
The 10th was the hottest day we bad. The
mercury stood 106° in the shade, and the
wind was so hot it killed lots of cfcrn. The
tassels fell over as though they were frost
bitten. It has been dry and hot ever since.
The mercury registers from 90 to 100 in the
shade. It is 96 to-day, and no signs of rain.
The creeks are nearly all dry, and the pasture
fields look like fire had run over them. If it
don’t rain soon the farmers will have to goto
feeding their stock.
There has been a good deal of sickness
here, and a great many deaths. The diph
theria is very fatal. Nearly every person
that gets it dies. A man by the name of
Lewis Dears lost five children out of seven
in less than two weeks. An old Iqdy by the
name of Mother Rumfield died with it. She
was QQ years and 3 months old. They are
buried the same day they die. Everybody is
afraid to go where it is, % so they have no
