Anson Itiuld’H Anniversary.
Thursday was an anniversary of Anson
Rudd’s natal day. We don’t know how many
anniversaries he has had of that day, but
we trust that lie will have many more be
fore he dons the robes of immortality. Al
though his outer form show* the wear and ,
tear of age, his inner form—the real man —
is young and fresh, because his life has;
been temperate and pure. Age has not
chilled and soured the generous aud sympa
thetic impulses of his heart, consequcnlv 1
he is young in spirit. When he lays aside
the natural body liisspirituul body will be
the fresh, symmetrical body of youth. With
some tlic reverse is true. The outer form is
tair to look upon, but the inner man is
wrinkled and decrepit. Britishness, unchar-
i tableness, ungoverued passions, and a ma
lignant heart, have set their seal upon the
inner form, and it has become palsied.
There will be a meeting of some of Mr.
Rudd’s friends, in liis orchard, to-morrow,
for the purpose of eating some of his fruit,
in remembrance of his birthday.

FIREWORKS, FUN AND BUSINESS.
Tho Finish or Oar Celebration—An
Cvenißs ou Kcll'k Inland—Our
Opinion at the llelort.
Last Thureday evening, as pdr previous
announcement, that portion of the Fourth
of July programme—the exhibition of fire
works, balloon nfccenaionw, and dancing—
w hich was cut out on the day wo celebrated
by a rainstorm, wan completed —ou tho
very spot whore the descending showers
gained a victory on our nation’s nut.nl day.
This time tho Fates were propitious; or,
rather, a kind and loving Father smiled
benignly upon our city, aud gave our citi
zens one of tho most charming evenings for
a pyrotechnic display we evet saw. The
air was balmy aud cool, the rising moon
partially obscured by clouds, which ever
aud auou broke into silver rills, when her
pale rays would bathe both lake and tree
in a soft and mellow sheen. The boats
were constantly tilled with gay aud happy
parties, the groves rang with the merry
laugh of happy hearts, thrilled by sounds
of sweetest music, and an air of ecstatic
pleasure pervaded the entire resort.
Tho committee ou fireworks occupied a
comumndiug elevation ou the opposite shore
of the lake, au<i gave a display of pyrotech
nics that was at ouce a credit to our town
aud a source of infinite delight to the
hundreds who witnessed it from their
rustic :,eats along the margiu of that sil
ver sheet of water.
At 0 o’clock, when music ‘‘arose, with its
voluptuous swell,and soft eyes looked love to
eyes which spake again,” votaries of Terpsi
chore thronged the spacious platform to
“trip the light fantastic toe” beneath arbors
through which gleamed a weird light l’roti
a hundred miniature lamps. Everybody so
inclined mingled iu tho revelry, and our
scribe left them to the pleasures of their
mode of enjoyment.
The refreshment stands, shooting gallery,
! and numerous tables were constantly occu-
I pied, many of our people having sought the
I grounds early in the afternoon, to husk he
j neath its welcome umbrage, taking with
them their “little porringers, to eat their
I porridge there.”
| The firemen may well congratulate tliem
solves upon the success of their entertain
incut, which lost none of its pleasure or at
j traetiveness by liaviug lreen deferred,
i We have but one word in conclusion, and
! this we commend to the careful perusal and
sober thought of our people, especially that
portion w ho desire that a place of innocent
amusement may be sustained In the suburbs
of our bcautifhl city :
Mr. Ernest Sell, who has expended some
S7OO in preparing and furnishing a cosy
pleasure resort in tho suburbs of our city,
j assures us that, if tho good people of Carton
will make it a point to patronize him
! whenever societies, church organizations,
i Sunday schools, etc., give picnics or entcr
| tainnients of any kind, he will guarantee
that no intoxicating beverages or improper
characters shall l>e admitted, and the re
sort kept up to a standard that anyone
may visit it without the slightest offense.
In view of this amurrnce, it certainly is to
the best interests ot all respectable citizens
that Mr. .Sell be encouraged in his laudable
enterprise, and enabled to keep this re-sort
up to this standard. Iu a few years Sell's
Island, with its beautiful lakes, supplied
with all kinds of fish, tine boats, etc., and
shady groves nnd green swards, if so man
aged, will become one of the most delight
ful places in this section —a resort where
all may go and enjoy themselves, without
being thrown in contact with anything low
or immoral. If he is not so em-ournged,
self-protection may lead Mr. Sell to rent
his resort as best he may.
