Thero was a rippplo of applause and tho Colonel-coiuiiiljcd: ''Never before- in (rWUiisstory of thisnaUonstioMvMil-iv. grand otlfpouring iil'IMiali'Dt" tho principles of truo doiiiocraey. ,And let me tell jou, fellow citizen", our candidates are going to lido inti office this fall on the crest of thp greatest political tidal wavo this country ha., ever known and when tho sun .-ets on .November anil it will set on a victorious democratic host from Maine to California." A stoim of checis folloned this forecast and tho Colonel seized the opportunity to spit, clear up his throat and lake a drink of water. After this ho ttarted in on tho taiifi'and tho monetary questions and laid down tho principles of theo i--sues with telling effect. From this ho switched off on stato issues and spoko of tho spotless in tgritv and illustrious careers of the candidates on the denioe a ic ticket. He spoku fur an hour and closed amid a whirhund of ch'ors. Retiring to bis seat tho Colonel mopped his faco vigorously and leaned back in his chair with an air of extreme self-gratification. After ono or two other notables hid spoken, tho chairman in'ro duced Mr. Sparks, who led off in tho old fashioned stylo of stump speaking. He spoko of "Our I'il criin forefathers who landed at Plymouth Rock in 1020 and who came to this .country in oider that thoy might worship God according to tho dictates of their own con sciences." Ho referred to Miles Standish. touched on the Revolu tionary war and spoko of "Our grand and glorious homo of tho bravo and land of tho free." Then he spoko of the glorious possibilities of the American Union, woi n 1 up with the assertion that tho d 'mo cratic party would, sweep tho coun try on election day and closed amid thunders of applause. Tho chairman now announded that tho meeting iwou'il adjourn for refreshments aid dinner and tho croud scattered out to tho wagons and buggies from whence boxes and baskets mado their ap pearance and snowy tablo cloths were spread on the ground around among tho trees. From the depths of the boxes and baskets came forth cold roast chickens, pies, cake, boiled hams, roast beef nnd mutton salads, cold tea and coll'ee and a hundred other good tilings, wliili about these improvised tables tin peoyje gathered in high good liu- mor'jind IcrlfielingCand .sitting about !1fciuwaflftjflLi!iHnarod to do". amnio iustico tolMgert'croBsmlVotl fare. The trees through tho grounds were already casing their leaves and furnihed soft, downy carpets through which the rustling feet of tho thoutands pnscd to and fro. Wagons loaili.il with watermelons, barrols of eider, apples and every thing to tempt the appetite stood on every side. Tho excitement and exertions of the day gave everybody a good appetite anil more than an hour pasted belbro tho crowds com menced gathering about tho speak er's stand and again where tho bands were discour. ing sweetest mii-ie. The afternoon was taken up in giving t lie smaller fry of pol iticians a chance to display their oratorical abilities, and it wa3 about four or iivo o'clock belbro tho crowds commenced dispersing and turning their faces homeward. Great clouds of dust hung over the roads leading away from town and hundreds of wagons were in lino homeward bound. A large part of tho crowds remained to witness tho firoAorks and parade a, night and the guards and delegations returned toionnina body. Page, Sparks and tho Colonel partook of a hur ried -upper at tho Magnolia houso and mado preparations for putting in the night on tho street-. The Colonel braced up his system on gin and whisky while his friends partook of beer and other mild stimulants calculated to soothe a man's nerves after the excitement of tho day. ''We put it all over tho Republicans." said tho Colonel, leaning his his elbow on tho bar and pushing his hat back on tho bick of his head, ''tlio last time tluy had a mass meeting here. They advertised that they would have a whole lot of big speakers and an nounced that there would be a grand torchlight procession to wind up with at night. Well, tho speak ers were billed to be on hand at six o'clock in the evening, and the Republicans thought tlu-y ivoul.' have a terrible big croud. Tlvt afternoon though wo all got togeth er and fixed up a littlo schuin, . Wo chartered all tho empty bin. ears in the railroad yards hero anil made up a big train and mado ar raii'i i.ients tor it to pull out ul four o'clock sharp. Then wo ha I nme dodgers struck oil and sent ;i lot of littlo boys round town adver ti.-ing a free excursion out to tin" noxt Unyn below ho-c , nd add. d that 'iicre wodliy?ajaife,li'!d' lift. laOTirOTWi-wNuTTv ireri ; v gut thero, God, you ought to hav seen tho crowd wo rounded up everybody in town wont, Re lib 'a ans and all.

At this moment a band stru I. up just outside tho door and ever body rushed to the door (Continued Noxt Week.) V, A l'iciiis S)oj;. Thero is a dog in Shiner that , deserving of a meu.il as tho mo faithful and constant church goi i in this vicinity. Extreme old a. i has begun to whiten his hair ai.d it is easy to beo that the old dog i getting in his dotago but time ha ill no way affected his piety and when tho church bell begins to ring ho pricks np Ids ears and miles caught will make a bee lino tm church. Once thero ho goes i. to hiding under tho house until ser vices begin. As soon as he hear tho singing commence hi walk solemnly in and takes his tt'i.id in tho "amen corner" as becoming t hi years and gray hairs, If he j would ba content to remain lli-i it would bo all right but he soon gets restless and pincocrts to iiu'm I the round of the church, going up 1 to tho pulpit, trving to walk Is tween tho picaciicr'a legs !. nil di trading tho attention of tho whole I congregation and making a genem' nuisance of hirn'olf. After this he visits his friei ds, going from scit, I to at, tlr mp'ng his tail ni d smiling doe asli'on from car to cir j and'exceedh gly glad to sou ever1 -I lr'dy.
