We have received a good, strong Local Option article, which came in too late lor insertion this week, but will appear in next issue. The Acme fry pan is the best for sale by McClure’s. Inclement weather appears to have played the dickens with the the Fair receipts tliis year. The complaint is , general, and Uec.l has Lts of bad company.

Reynolds the old Harris Man-ion of Harrisville and 65 acres of land included, for the sum of $5,000, as reported. Let fanners in every district form farmer’s clubs this winter and by organized effort double the attractions of the annual fair of ’B6, as well s its usefulness.

P'or terms and address see ad vertisement The recent registration of voters shows that we st 11 c ntinue to ad vanoe in population. In this d strict 43 names were added and 21 stricken off. Most of the districts did even better than this. The aggregate ad dition to the list was 854 names, to 128 taken olf. Corn husking is the last of the farmer’s harvest work, and the warm dry weather is putting the crop in tine condition for the crib. Not much of this woik lias been doneyet. but a few cool days will start the buskers. The crop is a good one this season. Jacob Swayne sent the Midland a few specimens of second crop straw berries last week. On enquiring of the young man who handed us the berries we learned that this second crop was not very large. The berries were fine, however, which is an indis pensible quality in all garden pro ducts, Our old friend Stephen Hindman has left the lumber business and gone into Uncle Sam’s employ, handling mail as postal clerk between New York and Washington. He will find that harder work than handling pine boards and shingles, but folks from ! some cau-e not ea-ily explained, do ; like to assist their Uncle Sammy. Our Elkton exchanges say that the ■ winter tramp has already commenced his southern migration. A swarm struck Elkton last week. We think there had better be some work map ped out by the County Commission ers tor these pro essionals. It does n't much matter what kind of work. If they know that the work is surely ready for them, they will give the jail and alms houses a wide berth. It is a shame that honest industry Bhould be so imposed upon by these vaga bonds, as the levy list proves it has been. . Mr. D. G. McCoy tossed a caa of his high grade corn while passing witii a load to the depot, which we caught on the fly. On trial the con tents proved to be very nearly equal to the article in its full glorv when enten from the cob. If Mac’s corn runs like this sample ‘‘roasting ears” may be enjoyed the whole year round- John Brown, aged 79, departed this life oil Friday last, and his funeral took place from his late residence at Mt. I'lcasant, or Vinegar Hill. The! deceased had resided in this part of t.lu* county' the greater part of his life and was universally respected. He was a skillful tradesman and stood . tir.-t among his class. Some evil minded person not hav ing the fear of the law before him, and being possessed by the devil, as the old fashioned indictment express es it, stole three setter pups from Sami. I>. Foard of the Elkton Howard House, They are described as hav ing tin markings. That won’t do for thorough breds, Samuel. They mustn’t show tan. That is a sign of the base blooded hound. We are gratified to see it stated that the receipts from the Elkton Fair will almost cover the expenses A little more economical finanecerii.g and planning will make future Fairs jay out and have a surplus. The buildings and grounds are elegantly appointed and every thing that contributes to a successful fair has been accomplished. The total receipts of the Fair arc ,-tat"d to be about $10,060. The man agers will hold a meeting to-day and we will have a correct report I'or our n xt issue. Ila i the weather been propitious the receipts would haye reached very nearly 813,000.

The iittle fel low is one of a litter, some too or three weeks old, and his only cover ing is a pinkish colored skin which is as innocent of hair or brist'es, as though it had been dipped into a scalding tub and scraped. Although the eyening was corn para ively mi d when we had a look at him tiie little fellow’s hide wrinkled and shivered, as though lie were very sensitive to cold, otherwise he appeared as plump and hearty as the other membe s of the infant family.
