Aint it a sight to see a lady who can trim a hat, select a nice summer dress and all trimmings, capable of making trimmings of the dress and hat match to make the ugliest old maid in this county look like a sixteen year older. Then again it is strange how a nice milliner can get up all these beautiful Hats with beau tiful trimmings, and select beautiful dresses with beautiful trimmings, all at the same cost it would be if you ware to selectfrom sorru in complete stock of Hats and Dry Goods, and get an outfit that was not becoming, neither beautiful nor tasty. This stock of Millinery has a complete line of chenile belts and ties with spikes, all the latest shirt waists, silks and a complete line of ladies' novelties, not surpassed anywhere.

J.t last week Judge Charles lIeudrickson,,ne w appointee on tho Supreme bench, culled (he attention of tho jurors to the open rioUtioa of the liquor laws in that city. All tho saloons and hotel bars are open on :lie Sabetb, and a great deal of unesinesj h.ts been stirred up among them by the matter. Pub lic sentiment his been against this practice aud the churches have inveighed against it, but nothing but the stong arm of a rigidly enforced law, it seems, fl ill do any good. And it seems rcBBOtiablo that the earn) force would correct similar evils nearer home that of Sunday- selliug and open doors of any kind of business houses. Some persons are very obtuse us too heeding a gentle admoni tion, from one who has only the best interests of society at heart, butif the thundarom voice of the law wakes him up there will be a ubukiug and quaking and tremb ling of dry bones. To call a halt ou the abolish ment of town charters because it was about to interfere with the revenues of the State is a poor ex cuse. Let the State raise its money in some other way than on whisky if it runs short. Memphis Herald. School Entertainment. The entertainment by the pupils of Savannah Institute, which wa? postponed on account of ruin, took place Monday' evening and we are glad to say there was a crowded honse. The pupils all did themselves and their teachers credit. Mrs. Mai Dickson was well sustained in her Kindergarten work by the little Misses Kather- ine DeFord. Nannie Campbell Hughes and Pauline Ogle. A prize had beeu offered by Mrs. 1). A. HcDougal to the pupil, in Miss Elizabeth Williams' room, who made the greatest improvement in penmanship iu a period of six weeks. Little M;ss Blanch Paessler won the prize, and Miss El6ie Broyles came second and Mastpr Ralph Armstrong third in the contest. The spelling match grew excitiug toward the close, Miss Allie Maloney's side win ning with her ranks thinned to two supporters Miss Mamie Guinu and Tom Winborn, Allie herself spelling the last word passed from the defeated side. Miss Lillian Patterson was left on her side a rose showing where a garden had been; for a time she pluckilv held her ground and filially when she had to "sit down" she thought there was something erroneous about it. Mrs. Fannie Kellogg'j reputa tion as a successful music teacher was well sustained by the rapid progress of Miss Lucile Garring ton, who has been takiug lessons only a short time. There were others as worthy of mention, but they covered themselves with glory on that occasion and what we may say will add nothing to it. By a vote of 12 to 7 the Arkan sas Senate passed a bill making it unlawful for any persou to dt ink any intoxicating liquor as a beverage unless he or she shall have first obtained a license as a dram-drinker. The license is fix ed at &5 per uunum. This is a rather ludicrous revenue source, but would no doubt lessen dram drinking should it become a law. A Raging Roaring Flood.

NEWS GATIIERD Cy Wire and Correspond ents From All Over the Whole Country. How Wo Are Appreciated. Mayfield, Ky., April 16. Dear Mrs. Hefner. I have been thinking for some time that I would write to you and tell you how much the Courier is appre ciated in Kentnckcy, When I receive the Courier last week with the blue mark, I decided I had to write at once as I didn't want to miss a copy. I read it first when received, I always throw work ( and company too sometimes) aside to read and hear from the people in dear old Sa vannah, ana then I send it to Corn. When she reads it rhe sends it to Miss Stone, who inght in your town last year, when she reads it she sends it to Mrs. Sarah (Caveudcr) Henning, who also lives here. We all read every line in it advertisements and all so the merchants needn't think their "ad" isn't read. Our children all know there is one thing in the house they can't touch and that is the Courier. I often mail the paper, after it makes the rounds, to some of my brothers, so you must always print on the best of paper so it can make its Journey. Hoping every one is well and prosperous in Savannah I will close, "tin closed find one dollar for another year's subscription. Respt., Blanche Kendall Ridgway. ON THE RIVER. AsKeportcd By Our ltiver Reporter. Frank Brown was in the office of the City of Paducab last week for a trip or two. The City of lVucah took lum ber at Giandview and Clifton on her down tiip.

The soil of this State b pejuliarly adapted to strawberry raising, and hundreds of thousands of dollars are invest ed in strawberry plants, which re quire less attention than peach trees. .
