performance of the Weston Brothers in their
musical comedy drama The Way of the
The audience was a very large one the
gallery being filled to overflowing and only
tho last row of scats down stairs being
emptv The contagion that a good audience
carries with it caught the company and
thero wasnt a stop in the fun tjf the eve
The Westons themselves are remarkably

Messrs Fetter Sc Sbobcr of Louisville
Kentucky publishers of Fetters southern
Magazine are doing something never at
tempted by any other publishers They
givo away a four hundred and fifty dollar
piano to the first person securing two hun
dred yearly subscribers and will give the
samo style of instrument to any person
sending them two hundred and fifty yearly
It is remarkable that such an offer can be
made and when one considers that the sub
scription price is only 250 a year it shows
by a simple sum that they make nothing by
tho transaction
However tho magazine Is so full of merit
that it requires no exertion to secure sub
scribers and this is a good chance for some
of our musical young people to get a hand
some piano for nothing

Your correspondent has issued tho follow
ing ten commandments to the voters of
Webster county
1 Thou shalt take time to go out and
hear public speaking
2 Six days shalt thou hear Towery
speak that thou may know how to vote on
the seventh
3 Thou shalt listen to Towery that you
may learn
4 Honor Towery that you may re
member what be says
5 Thou shalt not take bis namo in vain
for he tells nothing but the truth
6 Thou shalt take campaign literature
from Towery to read for it is written that
man shall not live by bread alone
7 Thou shalt listen to Towery atten
tively for be is a good speaker yet a very
jealous one visiting all sorts of iniquities
upon those who do not hear him But will
smile on all the attentive listeners with
the fullness of bis whole heart
8 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers
for by so doing some have entertained
angels unawares
9 Care for Towery perhaps he has
friends who know him in his innocence
and loved ones that cling to his parting
10 Blessed aro they who shall keep theso
commandments for they shall have aught
to the tree of life and enter In through the
straight gate into the city
