Alexander Aldridge, in the 8cth year of his age. Deceased became a resident of our city about 1 a years ago, and was highly esteemed by those who knew him best. He was a man of a fine sense of honor, well in formed, very social in his manners, kind and courteous to all, and wat rai?ht appropriately be termed an old fash'oned Kentucky gentleman. In early manhood he devoted himself to the practice of law, but give it up in later years for farming and stock-raising, in both of which he was success ful, owning one of the best forms in Howard county. When too old to longer manage a big farm, he Jold out and moved to the city for the purpese of educau'ng his children, and having -done this, he retired from business and settled down for a life of peace and quiet.

Dr. Vanoy, a traveling doctor, hnm- bugged some of us poor devils out of a portioa of our hard -earned cash. But, as usual, we bit again at a med icine that contained the guarantee o4 a Dr. Roberts, I!oliar, Mo on the wrapper. The guarantee, medicine and all, was no good; at least the guarantee wasn't, as the doctor has not made it good. We hare fixed it in our minds to bless the next medi cine man that chances to cross our path, and we win hate oursdf and all of our neighbors if we ever again listen to the siren song of medicine quacks. It males no difference whether he is a "nigger or a white man. Frank Scott, of ncir Sumner, spent a few d-y of the holidays with ye scribe and others. Mr. Scott is a man of peculiar peculiarities' as to the fair sex, which doubtless accounts for his being a bachelor. fie cx a woman he fancied and the kind be pressed himself to us as to the kind of didn't fancy. He doesn't admire one that is large and tall, black hair and eyes and dark comp'exioned. Said such a woman was as homely as an old fashioned bed-post with a string tied to it. The kind of a female he de clared he was looking for is a small bundle of sweetness with blue eyesj light hair and fair complexioned, with a mother not homely and brothers not lazy, with all of her sisters school teachers, so that none of them would sj.unge on him. He didn't say any thing about his ideal's paternal ancer tor, but we suspect Mr. Scott would want him to be a school director or a road boss. 1 To Care m Co!
