The election, or elections, for thev'lasted three davs. was held at the old court house, then compar atively new. It waB in. 1868, and the elections were held under mili tary rule, under General Camby. General Grant was elected presi dent the same day. Judge Pace succeeded Samuel Waldrop, and was elected as Clerk of the Superior Court, Probate Judge (an office since abolished) succeeding J. C. Gullick, father of our Judee Gullick and clerk to the Master in Equity, which office was then filled by H T. Farmer. The election lasted three days and all in the county came to town to vota.

The rains of the two days pre vious came but to freshen and re vive and make even more beauti ful the verdure clad mountains surroundiug Hendersonville. The sun shone with ai genial warmth, the azure blue sky had but a few lace-like clouds, and Dame Nature, clad in the most delicate green, smiling and laden with flowers, was in attune with the sacred day. ; Of course the ladies took advan tage of the superb weather and Main street was a veritable fash ion parade between 12 aud one o'clock. Many pretty gowns and hats were seen, and one poor, puzzled man was heard to exclaim, "Well, what bothers me is this: Which is the prettiest, the' hats and the dresses or their charming wearers?" But then he was only a mere man, of course. At the different churches Easter was appropriately and im pressively observed. St. James church never looked more beautiful. Dogwood, Nar cissus, spirears aud snowballs were used in profusion in the scheme of decoratiou in the body of the church, while dogwood blossoms and magnificent Annunciation lilies transformed the chancel into a bower of beauty. Rev. R. M. Willcoxs sermon was impressive and eloquent and the church was crowded with de vout worshipers. The special Easter music, with Mrs. F. W. Eubank at the organ, was fine, the solo, "He is not here, He is risen," by Miss RoBardsand Prof. Ruhl, being really excellent. The other members of the choir were Mrs.. Louiae Springer ""Miss.! Haas, Miss Emily Ewbank. Miss Steedmau. At the five o'clock services for the children, Rev. Willcox spoke of the necessity of discipline in our daily lives, punctuality being one of the results of this discipline. At the Methodist church Rev. Jno. W. Moore delivered an im pressive sermon, taking his text rom Acts 26:8: "Why is it thought incredible with you if God should raise the dead.' Special Easter music by the choir, a solo by Mr. Pless in the evening and by Mrs. Pless in the morning, the decorated altar made the Easter services very beautiful. There were no services held at the Baptist church. At the Roman Catholic cnurcn Father Marion, of Asheville, con ducted the usual Easter services. Owing to the illness of Mrs. John ston there was no special music. Jury List First Week Will Russell M. F. White J. V. Redden S. P. Pitillo C. E. Brooks j. T. L. Pace J, E. Summey Z.

(By Charlotte Young) I wish you knew a way I know Along the Cullasaja. There, everything to quietness And happy thoughts persuade you. The river sings its own wild song Around the rocky turnings, There honey-suckles lieht the banks With red and yellow burnings. ' Along the cliffs the ferns uncurl, And trails the pink arbutus, And here the wood thrush lilts a song As sweet as any flute is. I wish you knew a way I know By dreaming flowers and river, The little cares that hurt you so Would float away forever. Do you Believe in trie Golden Rjule?

TIMERS BLIND PESKY BEASTS GONE INTO HIDING It MAYOR SCHENGK'S CRU SADE BEARING FRUIT. SEVERAL MEN BOUND OVER TO COURT, AND THE TIGERS ARE NOW AFRAID TO EVEN WAG THEIR TAILS. The citizens of Hendersonville do not want any blind tigers in their city. ' . Public sentiment is against them And don't ever monkey with public sentiment better go down to Bennett's mill and toy with the buzz saw there. The mayor and his highly effi cient police officers are making every effort to suppress the blind tigers. And they are successful in their elforts, too. The tigers are so scared they dou't even dare to wag a tail for ear Zeb Arledge will see them. There have been numerous ar rests, trials and convictions in Mayor Schenck's court lately for illegal liquor selling. Town Attorney W. E. Eubank has appeared in some half-dozen cases within the past few weeks, as a result of the activity of the town's officials. Some wf 11 known men are now under bond for October term of court. The names of other well known men hare been mentioned during the trials. Others have turned state's evi dence to save their own skins. Now, the neit time these men, or any others, are before the may or for this offense, thi3 little old paper is going to publish all the acts and evidence in the case. The mayor and his officers are doing a good work. They are backed by everyone, irrespective of party, who believes in the enforcement of law, and they have that great power, public sentiment, behind them. Hendersouville i3 a dry town because its citizens want it to be a dry town and the community is fortunate indeed o have as officials men who see their duty plainly, perform it without fear or favor, and who are gradually ridding Hendersonville of this curse of liquor selling. " ' ' It was one of Mayor Schenck's anti-election pledges that he would stop illegal liquor selling here, and he's doing it. Shop Talk The great power paper cutter just received, is a massive piece of machinery, and getting it into the building was a very difficult job. It's keen knife would cut through au 18-inch plank almost. The Universal press, probably the finest piece of machinery made for fine printing, is a solid piece of mechanism, and requires a con crete foundation underneath it. Mr. J. R. Johnson, an expert machineist (also high priced, and he'a worth it) came from Balti more to erect the shop's new ma chinery. He has been here now several days. The new type for the paper is a large, perfectly clear and distinct type, and will be easily read. The "New Hustler" will be handsome in appearance. The new equipment is not al here yet only about a fourth part of it. The job department wil also be entirely new, with many labor-saving devices.
