One feature of March court is the horse display, but this was sadly lacking at Caroline. There were only two horses in the usual parade, but they were splendid animals. i >n<- was J. W.

It is Very interesting to stand in front of I ?awn Hotel and watch the strings of wagons go by to Milfortl loaded with tobacco, which make? the pockets of the planters swell so this year.

THE l'OSTOKKIl r Acting Postmaster Collins is still in control of the postotfice. There have been some remarkable changes in the situation since last court. Mr. J I). C.

His name was sent to the de? partment with all the necessary en? dorsement, but sometxxly whispered that Mr. G. was not a resilient of Bowl? ing Green and the fat was knocked in?u? the fire. Now it looks as if the friends of Mr. Travis had the host of the game. Ex-postmaster, ex-chair? man, but always a Republican, W. C "?Kg* gets off this: Now all you Republicans, whoever you may be. If ever you wish a postmaster to be. If ever you wish to climb to the top of the tree. If vou don't want to lie called a blasted fool. Be careful to observe this golden rule: Keep away from the party and never take tea. And some day a postmaster von may be. : \mi ItU Mr. T. D.
