Don't fonret the erand Democratic
mass meeting which is to be held in
Halifax Tuesday, September the 19th. It
will be the first week of Superior Court,
and of course everybody will attend.
Prominent speakers will be present. Let
us arouse old Halifax as she has never
been aroused, and let such a blaze of en
thusiasm go down the Democratic lines
on that day as to make the Liberals and
sore-heads quake in their very boots.
Victory will be ours this fall if our peo
ple can only be induced to go to the polls
and vote.
Dashes Here and There Col. C.
R. Jones has returned to the Democratic
party.
Leach is still trying to ride into Con
gress on the dark horse,
O'Hara and Hubbs continue to stump
the district, both claiming to be the regu
lar nominee of the party.
The Republicans are opposed to giving
lything to the Liberals when they can
cceed with a straight ticket. They only
use the soreheads when they cannot pos
sibly use the straightouts.

the vacancy caused by the death of

The race track if? Id be is, fdr a foci'.
Messrs. J. Choheu, G. W Bi'tinfe'ri; It. P
Levy, and S. C. Bellamy took the "initia
tive," leased the grounds for seven years
and began the work. The course encircles
the ti'lil field cn the west of the town, and
takes in the base b'Sll gronMdS. A more
suitable place could not have b'Sch1 greet

association intend to obviate that, the
track is almost perfectly level. The track
a I 1v1rtfTi is sftid to be the best in the
State, andthygfe bb'.kfiow say this one
will beat that. The InlerGst takfrt m it

tance half a mile. I heard they were to
organize Saturday, but from some cause
did not. The thing is settled, so, g'long.
It was not Mr. Taylor, the Postmaster
at Whitakers, over whom the train ran,
as stated in your last, but an old gentle
man by the name of Carlyle, who was
carrying the mail bag. No blame has
been attached to any one for the accident,
if I have been rightly informed. Mr.
Carlyle is dead.
Was invited to the basket pic-nic at
Mr. W. C. Whitaker's place, but being
indisposed could not attend. I learn the
affair was a very enjoyable one.
A telegram announcing the dangerous
illness of his father recalled Mr. VV . b.
Parker from New York where he had
gone to purchase his fall stock. The sick
man is better.
The old stags had another stew at the
old mill. Plenty to cat and the "O be
joyful" below zero. It is customary for
the country "boys" to furnish the squir
rels, chickens, vegetables, &c, and tor
the town boys to furnish the whiskey.ice,
&c. This time the latter carried the
whiskey and brought it back, I'm in
formed.
To one who does not know, it must ap
pear a little strange that I should make
such a difference, considerins: the size of
the place, when speaking of the young
folks. Belonging to the same tamilies,
yet, there is such a difference that, when
the younger set want to have a pic-nic or
a tea party, or anything of the kind, they
have it independently of the older set,
while on the other hand, they appear to
be too proud, at times, to put themselves
in the way of the older set. At a mo
ment's notice they can marshall a small
army, while the others are few and hard
to rally.
On Thursday they had a pic-nic or
lawn party at Mr. Dunn's place, under
the management of Mrs. Estes.
Tables for those who preferred games
requiring them, - swings, croquet and
1 other out-door sports and games made
the hours fly most delightfully. The boys
say they had the best dinner that could
be had. Meats and delicacies of every
description, including ices. In thinking
of the latter, well, I'scream.
Though proud and independent, yet,
when they have a hop, they are anxious
for the older set to patronize them, as
they do not feel equal to every emergency,
nor do they hesitate to ask any little ad
vice in regard to the management, know
ing that their rights are always respected
dancing according to their programme.
Then too, when a hop is on hand, the
boys of the younger set fall away, leaving
only five or six to aid, and generally one,
with the "bag to hold," which forces
them to appeal to the older ones ; but
that is well, because they are always m
when they can, and that is the only sem
blance of a connecting link between the
boys. Such was the case Friday evening.
On the day before, with a grand flourish
of trumpets, they announced a hop for
"the next evening. The thing fell on the
shoulders of one, and he became very un
easy, and was finally reduced to such a
strait, some of the older boys could not
sit down on him.
The hop was a pleasant little affair
after all, if the warmth did throw a damp-
fcr over it. Only one home girl belong
ing to their set honored them with her
presence, and it was ap preciated by the
older boys because the "stern parent,"
luieiaung hit? in in me iamiiy circle or
"some other" circle, and agreeing that,as
a set they will do, yet, no sooner than
they enter a ball room are they metamor
phosed into drunken, disorderly roughs

Everything that is bad and disreputable.
If they are not gentlemen in the ball
room, they are not gentlemen in your

enlarged facilities enable us to do more

Returning thanks for past patronage
we wish to say that we will self goods for
cash as low as they can be bought else
where, or we will quit the market.
