late Joseph A. Hoppe, near Finksburg, on
Tuesday, the attendance approximated one
I, thousand persons, and the bidding was spir-
ited. The sales exceeded the appraisement by

4 The people of Sykesville and vicinity were
• 8 a little alarmed last week when it was currently
reported that a trust company would be formed
is in Sykesville, but it only proved to be a com
r. roercial combine. The firms of Mellor A
Schorb, Griffith A Turner and Bennett A
e Barnes, of this place, have combined, and
e will be known hereafter as the Sykesville
t Farm and House Furnishing Company. They
n will occupy the old stand of the retiring firms,
h and will carry a much larger stock of goods,
j The members of the new firm are all younj;
men, and are noted for their industry anc
enterprise, and it is more than probable they
will make it warm for all competitors.
e Warfield's planing, sash and door factory
is nearly completed. The machinery will all
8 be in position and ready for operation by the
’ 20th of this month. The engine will be tested
s this week, if our village doctor don’t lay an
injunction on the smokestack. Mr. Warfield
' ha* removed his office from the rear to the front
of his store, and has two rooms elegantly fitted
up. He has n full corps of clerks, having
recently engaged Mr. Richard McCrone. In
- one of the offices is a typewriting machine,
1 where every night can be seen Hyatt and
? Chipley working at it like two woodpeckers
ou an old tree.
f John McDonald A Co. will keep pact*
' with the times, and will open with a larger
* stock this spring than ever before. They will
1 also deal extensively in lumber and coal.
Postmaster Mellor will enlarge his store
> this spring, as he finds it much too small for
’ his increasing trade.
The new firm of Delashmet. A Waters will
surprise the public when they open their
spring slock. Sammy is immensely popular
1 with the people, and he promises to please all
who call on him.
i L. H. Schultz A Son will cross the Patapsco
in May, and will occupy their fine warehouse
i near the depot. The upper part of the build
' ing will be used exclusively for the display of
furniture and household goods.

Justice Hyatt has resigned, and J. Oliver
Wadlow is also expected to do so, on account
of his health. There are several aspirants
for both places. Weer would like to be mag
istrate at Sykesville, and if he don't succeed
he will lay in a lot of brand new coffins in the
Mr. Stewart Kearney has the finest lot of
chickens now in the county, and his roost is
well worth seeing.
Norwood still attends to a good deal of
outside business, and it is hard to find a man
that is engaged in so many enterprises.
St. Paul’s M. E. Church has taken a good
many new members in the fold since that last
revival. The children are now practicing for
I he Easter exercises.
When the springtime comes and the “robins
nest again” Sykesville will be in full business
bloom, and if they will only do a little more
advertising, and not leave so much to your
correspondent, we predict for them a year of
extraordinary success.
The public schools, we regret to hear, will
close early in April this year. Next year we
suppose lhey will close altogether.

Day Items.
J. Bernard Shipley has been giving lessons
in vocal music gratuitously every Monday i
evening at his own house —a pleasant and
? very useful entertainment —for the benefit of
[ his own daughters and other young people ol
1 the neighborhood, and all who may desire to
attend as well.
We have experienced that zeroized roads
j are a vast improvement on mud roads, and
often better than the macadamized road; and
• in comparison with the latter infinitely more
r inexpensive in construction. But we have
1 also experienced that they are durable only
where there is neither sunshine or rain, of the
■ latter of which we have been having a super
abundance, with some of the former.
George W. Mullinix is tearing down umJ
building up at his new purchase, the Welsh
property. He has lately demolished a tobacco
house, and is shaping the timbers thereof to
help build a barn, Marcus L. Pickett’s steam
saw mill doing the work. His chief' engineer,
Gassaway Rollings, is a tenant at will on the
premises, and he and some of the hands keep
bachelor’s hull, in the temporary absence of
the men a gust of wind turned their tenement
bottom upwards. Gassaway thinks it fortu
nate that he was a bachelor, otherwise he
might have been made a widower by an ill
wind. At the risk of being criticised for being
monosyllabically tautological, we will say of
Marcus L. Pickett's saw that we saw that saw
saw, and that that saw that we saw saw will
saw with any saw that we ever saw saw.
Wm. 11. Harrison makes a sale on the 19th
instant, preparatory to removing to Washing
ton, D. C.
A writer in the Baltimore weekly American
speaks in justly eulogistic terms of Carroll
county farming. But then he huddles it all
up into the limestone valleys by saying that
there the land commands full prices, while in
the poor soils it may be bought for $5 per
acre. Ami he speaks of the lands near the
W. M. K. K. as if he was not aware that (here
was any other railroad in existence. All of
which would seem to indicate that he has led
a hermit life in some limestone cave, and,
hearing the locomotive’s screaming whistle,
had stepped forth to see if Pluto had burst
the gates of sheol and was passing by; and
when the monster disa)>peared in the distance
he look in the limestone valley just in front
of him, and then, glancing beyond, caught a
glimpse of some barren rocky ridge, and
asking its use ami value, and being told, set
it down that that was a valuation for all lands
not in a limestone valley on the W. M. li. R.
The ideas of such men in print are very mis
leading. A limestone valley farmer told us !
long since that he had never seen such results 1
from lime as he saw in a field between Win
field and Woodbine, on the B. & O. Railroad,
which is neither limestone nor valley land.
The writer reminds us of the woman who
opened a small cake and candy store in a
village comprising her own house, a black- '
smith shop and a log building used as a school
house and church. When asked why she did
not open a somewhat more extensive estab
lishment in the suburbs of Cincinnati, only a
few miles away, she answered: “Oh, that
place can never come to anything, it’s too far
from here.” But the writer must lake our ,
reni arks in a kind spirit, they-being so writ- i
ten; for we ourselves have lived so hermit-like ‘
that we have not seen his five dollar farming
land in Carroll county yet.

The Shooting of Birds.
, | The wanton shooting of harmless birds,
. merely for sport, is a most heartless and cruel
, recreation. The plea of commercial necessity
y and self-preservation may be urged in behalf
i of the shooting and trapping of wild animals,
, but no such excuse can be alleged for the
1 extermination of harmless birds. liCt them
; sing in the broad vault of heaven to their
heart’s content, and tenant the fields and
; their forest homes without molestation. A
; hnnter narrates that he once fired at a bird
which he followed up as it fluttered away.
He said,’ “I saw a sight I never will forget.
There it was, with its wings broken and all
I bespattered with blood at the nest with its
i young. 1 felt so bad that I vowed never to
i shoot another bird.” Again we say, spare
the innocent birds, and your heart will be
lighter when you hear them sing.

Farmers’ Mutual Fire Insurance Company of

man 3t Insurance Commissioner.
Of Baltimore, Carroll and Harford counties,
will guarantee you the cheapest, best and
•prettiest Fence ever made. We claim the
following advantage over all other systems of
hedging: We turn our stalks at an angle of
30 degrees, commencing to plash in the centre
offence. Therefore, as the stalks try to grow
straight, it gives us a backward pressure of 2
pounds to the stalk, which makes our combi
nation of hedge and wire substantial, by which
we neither fasten the stalk to the wire or the
wire to the stalk —one supports the other.
All this we give you at the small price of $1
per rod. The farmer prepares his ground and
works the plants as he would corn (or the
Company will prepare the ground for 10c per
rod extra), and will keep said hedge trimmed
for 1c per rod afterwards for any number of
26c per rod at the time of selling plants;
26c per rod the following spring, when
replanted and side trimmed, if necessary; 10c
per rod the next spring, when side trimmed,
and 4o cents per rod, the largest payment,
you hold until your fence is plashed, wired
and slock proof, giving you a fence one year
sooner than possibly can be done by stapling.
