Soldiers who erved in the brigade are entitled to membership and are invited to partioi- mte in the reunion which Is expected to > e one of the best since the war. Norfolk politcians hnvo been given he opportunity nnd pleasure of meet- ng Hon J. H. Mickey of Osooola , the republican candidate for governor of he stnto. He arrived in the city yester day nnd remained over night , thus giving many Norfolk people n chance to onn his acquaintance. The impression he created was very [ favorable nnd ho won numerous friends among the Nor- 'oik people be was able to see during his short time In town. Ho was shown around by Hon. W. M. Robinson. It is safe to believe that should Mr. Mickey visit the city ngnin during the campaign 10 will find a ready and enthusiastic welcome from Norfolk people. It has been remarked that the owner of the lot at the corner of Main and Ninth street is certainly entitled to a prize if the city imppovemont com mittee is giving any in that class. The , ot supports a crop unexcelled in any part of the city , while landscaping Is of that klud so popular , that pays no at tention to lines of symmetry , it being nature's own arrangement. The crop consists of many varieties of tbo weed family and has generally attained a growth of more than six feet during the single season. It promises a magnificent crop of seed. If the committee is awarding consolation prizes this should not bo overlooked. Compared with Dr. A. Bear's tastily kept lawn and yard across the street it is a vivid contrast. Miss Mary Shelly , who for the pasl five years has conducted a dress-making establishment in this city , has closed her shop in the Oottou building and will discontinue her work in Norfolk She will leave shortly forRougis , Wyo. and will later take a course of Instruct ion in the art of cutting gowns in a oltj establishment , to better equip her foi high grade work in thU line , which shi RAILEOADS Yazoo & M.

Miss Shelly has been known to the ladies of Norfolk for the past eight years , having served for three years with Mrs. "Weber , at whose departure she took up the management of the business , which she has successfully conducted since. Miss Shelly will be missed by many 'rionds and a large patronage , for whom she has done eminently satisfac tory work and who will wish her success wherever she may locate. BOATING UNEXCELLED. Northfolk Offers Varied Attractions to Lovers of the Exercise. While dozens of Norfolk people are taking outings many miles away from liomo to escape the torrid heat , and hundreds are wishing that they might nnd lamenting the fact that "there is nothing to do in this town , " few seem to appreciate the fact that almost nt their very doors lies a little river whose cool , tranquil waters , endless winding curves and shady nooks afford oppor tunity for outing and pleasure unex celled. No summer resort can furnish a stretch of water whose natural beauties and advantages surpass those of the picturesque Northfork. Deep , cold and appoarantly motionless , the glassy channel of this little stream glides be neath the canoe or row boat for miles and miles , holding the prettiest features till the end , offering now a bit of strik ing scenery formed by the foliage , here a fantastic creation of thickly grown vines that lean far out over the waters and softly caress the current as it rip > pies by , there a superior long distance view of the water coming toward you under the shadow of a bolld gwall oi green , with perhaps a bridge to breal the monotony , and hero and there aac everywhere bending , twining , twist Ing banks with verdant carpets o : nature's own handiwork , upon whicl to while away au afternoon or enjoy t pionlo supper. With the great , round , silvery moor that is just breaking its way into the western skies of an evening , not twenty- four hours should pass without dozens of Norfolk people taking advantage of their river , which will welcome any number of craft at any time of day. There are quite n number of those who know a good thing nnd scarcely an evening goes by that the banks of the Northfork do not echo and re-echo the joyous laughter or bits of song from some merry boating party. But there should be more. Boats can always be procured at the First street bridge and the water should be kept alive with paddle and oar. Sometime , on some pretty spot , a club house with lockers and boats and golf links nnd tennis courts and a dancing floor and bowling alleys and what not , will spring up and then nnd only then will the Northfork strike its gait.
