Paliiinic ol St. Louis preached at the I'ic-h) let ian Chinch last Sunday morning and delivered two iieiuie.s at llio opera House, one in i he nlieriiooii nud one in the evening. Ill the evening the Opera House was tilled, and a striking feature id the audience was the number n men and oovs in iiiicnd:incc. 1 he closest at lentioi. was paid lo the speakcl i In ooglmut, and t lit' ImpicM applause with which his iciuaiks wen- greeted indicated a "in in nppnr.itl of the senti ments expressed Dr. l'.iluniie was line at the instance of the county .Mini-lciial Alliance, and his leeluris weie intend, d lo be the beginning of a local option campaign in this county. Tim! theie is a stioug -eiilmietil in I ivoi of ilie movement is apparent, as anyone may learn bv bringing up the subject in any crowd of men. A physician of Flat River, who has a food opportunity to be come acquainted witli public sentiment in the Lead Hell, iufoiins us that he is satistied thai local option would catry in Flat Kiver. Thi- was a sui prise to Us. In limine, Telle, we have also been told, theie i- a strong sentiment against the liconsed saloon, and al Doe Hun it is the same. The latter town is now without a saloon. Sentiment is probably mine evenly divided in Farmington than in any other part of the county, though the anti-saloon people aie inclined to be lieve '.hat they have a maj irity. As this city now has a population of (mo or more, it would have !o vole scpaialuly from the county if mi elec tion were called, unless the last cen sus, tal.cn by amhoiity of the lloaid of Aldermen several years ago, and which gave a population in louud num bers of 2,2nn, should prevail If it new census is Liken the population would ei Mainly tun over "inn, on which ba-is Fanningtou would have to vote on the proposition scpaialely; and if 'he iuestiou should c.nty in the balance of the county anil fail lo carry in Faruiiugton, we would have a diy county with a wet county seat Tlie movement is in the hands of the Ciiuu'.y Ministerial Alliance, and' wc understand that as soon as it can determine upon a leader the campaign will be pushed and application made lo the County Court for an order for a special election. Much will depend upon the unanimity of those having the movement in charge and the leader or leader-, for the campaign will have to bean aggressive one to Ining about is. ults. For The State Fair.

IJiiiucy Adams Sawyer, February U Light! More Light. The spirit of civic impioveinent in connection with thi upbuilding of a town should receive more atiention than it has had in the pa-t, if any thing tangible is to be accomplished lo talk is one thing, but to put the talk into active being is ipiite tiuolhei. Fifty citicu should leel an interest in it ny 1 1, nu that adds to the appearance of the town, by day o' night. In lenity undci-taiid and appreciate hoe, n town looks lo the stranger, one should Iry and get the opinion of the stranger. I hose who live heie eon. slantlv are so accustomed to certain conditions that they do not consider how they look to an outsider. As to whether a town is a live or a dead town, the lighting up in Ihe evening is an iuipoitiint matter. A town of the size an:' 'in;- malice of Farmlnglou should have al least the Court House npiure brilliant with light at night. Arc lights or cliisteis of lights should be on each corner. The traveler who comes in on the late trains thinks he has about reached the end of uowlce when he has fairly to grope along d "K unknown streets to reach his dcsiina tiou Tins should not he so in no up In date town, and it is to be hoped that some in rangements will soon be made for better lighting service. The inoie lichts we have the more 'uduce nienl there will be to llietlectlic light company lo improve and increase its capacity.
