While the show was unloading Tues
day morning, Charley Iliatt, a negro,
together with other lojfers, stood
around in the way. A show negro
dropped a plank near Charley and the
latter tackled him for a scrap. The
show negro stopped long enough to
fljor Charley with his fist and then
went on about his work. Charley's
mouth looks like a beef's liver and he
is satisfied that "show niggers" are
good things to let alone.

Some one suggested that Lancaster
have a centennial celebration, but we
learn from good authority that the
town was one hundred years old in
IS'JC. Several towns have had street
fairs, which are on the same order, so
far as the parade is concerned, but it's
most too late to get up anything
of the kind now. Let's wait 'til next
summar. Mabe by that time some of
the cusses, who object to every public
move, will have obliged the town by

Something New and Very Good.
We have recently placed in our mill
one of the most complete Corn Clean
ers that is made. It cleanses corn
perfectly and makes the meal as pure
as the cleanest flour. It first takes
out, by separation over seives, all,
pieces of cobs, shuc's, rat filth etc.,
then it scours all impure smell from
the corn. We also keep in stock gra

fact that he has been appointed to the
