aside from a slightly wobbly gait.
Laurent is as well as ever.
The surgical operation per
formed by Dr. Koulie.-, at the
Hospital Agen is the sensation of
Paris. The famous surgeon
took the entire stomach from the
young farmer, and when the or

was replaced by the complete
stomach of the anthropoid. Lau

Joe Foiiftt of Concord was in
this city Thursday, and was talk
ing to us about good roads. Mr.
Foust is a good ro.uls enthusi
ast, and has done considerable
work and experimenting on
roads, and gave us a new idea.
He claims that if sand is worked
placed on the roads while it is
wet, it will pack hard and will
not work out in holes. He says
that lie has tried this, and linds
it to make a good, solid road, that
will not work up when either
dry or wet.

THAT NEW DEPOT.
Ordinarly, it would be pro
sinned that the Railroad and
Warehouse Commission was cre
ated for the people, and that tin
men elected to duties of that
office should be elected to serve
the people, but in this state, it
seems, the only duties they have
to perform is to take care of the
interests of the railroads, as
against the people. It will soon
be two years since the Frisco's
depot at this city was destroy
ed by tire, and still no action
has been taken, and as win
ter is now at hand, there is hard
ly any probability that anything
will be done before .spring, and
then if the railroad can
still control matters, it may not
be done then.
Spencer A Stubbs, the hustling
and up-to-date merchants, moved

Fred Morgan brick, this week.
From their small start in the the
frame out-of-the-way building,
their business entirely out-grew
them and for some time their
house has been so over-stocked
that they have been seriously
handicapped. Now, however,
they can display their full line,
and by means of an extra army of
clerks, can attend to all the
wants of the peonle promptly
and pleasantly. It is a pleasure
to see such success, and more
in particular, that it comes as lib
eral users of printers' ink.
