The lovers oi ar tistic music were delighted with the evening, from the first piece to the last. The most particular hit of the evening was the beautiful mezzo sonrano voice of Miss Marie Bauard. She was given frequent encores, and her appearance was always the sig nal for applause. There wa9 a good deal of comnlaiut. and we have been requested to speak of. the bad be havior of a few of Columbia's young ladies and gentlemen. Tuey could not appreciate the music, aud they would not let others. Their constant chattering and giggling annoyed creat many who had paid their monev and gone there to enjoy the music. It is surprising the class of neoule who will be guilty of such rudeness. Some of these innocents have the air th .t "because it is me people will excuee it. Because of their own good minners they say nothing to vou. but if you could ac cidentallv hear half the remarks made about vou the next day, you would perhaps behave yourself the next time. This same behavior oc curs at every entertainment, and the guilty oues are the very ones we have the rignt to expect oeier oi. ii is e sh uue upon Columbia that it is so. THE LAST AND BEST. The celebrated Schubert Male Quai tette will be here Friday night April 10th. This is the last aud best of the Y. M. C. A. Star Course, under the management of Mr. E. A.

Everyone should save themselves for this grand musical treat. THE IMPERIAL QUARTETTE. The performance giveu by the Iin perial Quartette last Friday night was an all-rouud failure. The receipts failed t- pay Mr. Fusch the sum he had guranteed the Quartette, and the fmusic failed to please the few who were there. Some oi tne music was fairly good, but there was altogether too much ot a sameness. Royal Arcauuiu. Messrs. J. P. Street, E. A. Fusch. Joseph Towler and S. D. F. McEwen attended the Grand Council of. the Royal Aicauura which convened in Nashville this week. The meeting was frivngbt with good feeling and everything showed that the order is - a in a growing ana nourtsning conui tion. Parnassus Council of this city showed itself to be the banner council, leading the list in gain of member ship since Jan. 1st 1800. E. A. Fusch was honored by being made Grand Vice Regent and J. P. Street was elected to serve on the Finance Com mittee. This order i undoubtedly the grandest and most posperous in surauce order in existence.

The above organization observed their rtrst aulversary last Sunday evening at the Methodist church, and presented to the large audience au interesting order of exercises. The music, which was remarkably good, was furnished by the members oi tne association, ably assisted by several of the best voices among the young ladies ot the city. Morgan r nersou presided at tne organ, auu periormea witn rare skui. The association is Goutiness ueepiy indebted to this young gentleman for so kindly assisting them at this mect- Mr. 11. l . f iguers maue some ex cellent remarks, taking "Inconsis tency" as his subject. The address ol W. !-. .Fleming, jr., the President of the Association, was listened to with marked atten tion. We give only a brtel synopsis of it. He said that the association s aim was not to supplant the church but was in fact what it professed to be, tho right arm of the church. Any association that fails in this, is uu worthy of the support of the public; but auv association that fulfills the object for which it was organized, de serves not only the flnaucial suport of the public, but the eucouragetneut of the people's presence in. all their meetings, and a remembrance in me people's prayers. Tne Association does no charity work; that branch of religious work having been left to that beautiful and most excellent order, the Kings Daughters. He referred to the liberality with which the people of Columbia re sponded last year to the request for means to start the Association, and said that the Association was there to render the dividend to each one for the investment they made. He referred frequently to the Secretary's report' and emphasized the facts contained in it, and showed that the association's life for the past year was one of undoubted progress. He closed by saying iu substance, that the Association loves the sup port of the low minded, an 1 deserves the practical support of the high minded. Wc cannot add to what was said that evening, aud we cannot hope to impress more forcibly upon the pub lic mind than has already been doi e, that the Young Men's - Christian Association is a grand organization; but we lay it uowu as a truth that cannot be controverted, that idleness is a fruitful cause of backsliding. Ther6 are many young men who feel that their christian growth depends upon "active work for their Loru and Master. To such we say, what the association says all the time, go visit the sick young men of your city; go to the gospel meeting for men only and take a friend wi -,h you ; take ad vantage of the opportunity given yon to testify of the hope that is Iu you. Go to the reading room aud spend an occasional eveuiug there, and when you go take some youug man whom you know to be living a bad life, with you ; entertain him and endeavor to keep him out of evil places, away from evil companions. This is what the young men of the association have been trying to do; this is some of the work it wiil give you to do. Will you do it? Paint Yonr -House. Why not? It costs but little and is money well Sent to preserve tbe building. Now is the time while the atmosphere is free from dust ajd in sects. The first question to decide is, where you cau get the best paint. As it costs no more to apply a strictly pure than au adulterate i article, it is manifestly to the interest of every purchaser to get the beet. Our paints are manufactured es pecially for us by our own formula, under a contract guaranteeing abso lute purity. We subject them to a rigid chemical analysis and can state positively, as we ku.iw it to be a fact, that they contain no adulterants whatever, are made of the best and purest materials and are absolutely pure. They must not be classed with the many adulterated paints with which the market is 'flooded, and which cost you as much or more thau our paints do. We are lust in receipt of a full stock of all the latent and most beau tiful shadss for 1891. Respectfully, mehl K IUins & BoNt A Curd from Scott P. Harlan, Auent the Williamsport Pike. Editor Herald. Iu your last tveetv's issue appeared au article, signed "Eunice." .My attention has just been called Vt this article. It deals in unwarranted insinuations, aud hides them under an assumed name, of the feminine gender. If the writer of that article is at all familiar with the efforts heretofore mad, to build a pike from Columbia to WTH liamspott, he knows that there has been a charter for some eight years lor a pike leading directly irom Co lumbia to Willia iitpoit, andfthat 1 have done every tinug I coulu to have said pike built; that I have always expressed mvselt willing to cooperate w Hh the people a!o jg the line to build a pike any way tnat it could be built ; that 1 prefer the direct route, as per the charter now obtained; failing in this, that I next preter the route, leavtug the Hampsaird pike near T. H. Wil.i m,' for the reason that it puts our tartu two miles nearer to Cdumbia than the Tiudall lane route' 1 have done every thing iu my powei for years to get tlie pike to Columbia by the nearest way possible; liudmg mat I could rely upon little help from "Eunice" and Lis Williamspoit friends, in despair of getting the pike built by cither ot the nearer routes, 1 made the etlbrt to get it built by way ot the Timiail lane, and with a li'ie prospect of tuctefs; when lo, iiuuicf" suddenly appears upon lut sceue with his itiKinuations that 1 was attempting lo t;et the liietchant of Columbia to Le'p build a pike ihai would carry trade from them to Polk's Station. Now I would like to ask the io-icst damsel when she tirst I eoame au advocate for a turn pike Irom Williamsport to Colum bia? How much she will give tu build tlie pike by the route she pro poses? Who arejthe persons that undertake lo guarantee the building of the pike from where the Williams port road lea via tha pike to Greeu Ijick Creek ? fce. If a reliable guaran tee, such as site says can be had, to build the road from Green's Lick Creek to where tie Williamspori Road comes into tho Hampshire pike at Tom Williams', And from Nebo to W lliamsport, then we pledge oui selves to heartily cooperate in the building of the pike, and I will agree to contribute as liberally as the in sinuating damsel, or as any other person. . But if it is found that the pike cannot be built from Columbia by the route pr -posed by "the maiden fair," then let us have it by any route obtainable. I say this much, that 1 may be properly understood, and thai my actions in attempting to get the pike by Tindall's lane may not be misunderstood. Scott P. Hahlan.

Hal Pointer 2:0!lJ.j has been sold ; o Moutaua parties for $1.5000. A high price, but not too much for the great gelding, ir he lives. The total number of pacers in the 2:30 list Is 1,213. Up to lhito, no horse in this coun try ever stood forover $500 the sea- sou, but this year mere are three stallions that stand at $1,000. Advices from Lexington state that J. D. Creightou, owner of Evangeline, 2:2H34, is willing to trot her agaiust Cleo, 2:2.4 and has post- e I $500 as evidence of good faith.

The noted trainer John Splan has an order from au Englishman for a stal lion that can trot in 2:21 or 2:22 with out weights or boots, that is also sound and all" right. This is the kind they are looking after across the water. J. W. and J. L. Jones, Jr., Daisy Stock Farm, sold last week three fine jacks, one to Missouri, one to West Tennessee and one to Alabama.

Speaking of the tiiorougnnrea blood in the trotter, Robert iiouuer gives the ' no-trotting blood in theirs" theorists a hard knock when he says: "Tho three fastest trotters in the world by the records are Maud S., Jay-Eye-See and Sunol. Maud S.'s grand dam, Sally Russell, is by thoroughbred Boston; Jay-Kye-See's grand dam is also a daughter of Lex ington. The blood of Lexington blends with trotting strains beauti fully." Messrs.

KimtoH Hkiiai.h: Thinking that per haps a few lines from a former Maury iiiitinn wonlil provo oi niicrest lo some ol your many readers, I will en deavor to give timm through the col umns of your valuable paper a descri tion of this part of Tex as. The city of Abilene lies on tho back bone or divide, separating tho fertile lira.os river and Co wcho river valleys. Tho 'Texas and Pacilic bring to it the products of the surrounding territory irom au extended radius and before another crop is harvested tho Houston Texas Central is expected to extend this tar. Ten years ago the country Where now stands a beautiful and nourishing city of six thousand inhabitants, was a bare prairie , trod only by tho reckless cow boys as they rounded up their herds. 'Tho city has already .one Hour null with a daily capacity of two hun drjd barrels, besides several smaller who. '1 Ho supply of water is furnished by a very prosperous local company, which ulso manufactures and furnishes ico lor tho city. This company fur nishes tho city's waler supply . from a never tailing well of tho purest water, which is pumped into a reservoir on the heightlis adjoining the city, which has a capacity ot 5,min,iMi gallons. Tho city will soon bo lighted up by electricity, as tho work of constructing a plar.t is rapidly progressing under the tblo su periniendency of Mr. 10 I) Kelly, an ex pert electrician from St. Iouis. Abilene is said to be ono of the best equipped young cities iu Western Texas. She has three National banks, the Farmers and MercliaiitH, the First National and the Abilene National; they are all prosperous institutions. There are three largo public school buildings in tho city and a large amount has been subset ibed by the Baptist church for the erection of a commo dious female seminary near the city, with accommodations tor three hun dred pupils, 'i'ho soil of Taylor county is divorsilied, but extremely fertile; one fourth of it is tin) famous black waxy laud, and tiio remaining three lour. lis is a dark sandy loam. We have surrounding us thousands of acres of tho very lim-st piality of fann ing lands, and larmiug is a promised success as is proven by three good crops in succession. Tailor county in the fall of l"Kl look tho banner at the Dallas lair for tho best county exhibit ol the stale. Tho land on which the agricultural part of this exhibit was growu can bo bought at from ton to twenty dollars per acre. Maid land Is situated from one to live miles from town. From live to ton miles from the rail road it can bo bought at front $3 to f 10 per a'-ro. If some enterprising Maury countlau was hero with a unmoor of line Jerseys, such as vou have around Columbia, and would start a dairy, I think ho would find 't a paying business. At present tho demand ts'nt half supplied ; sweet milk Is sold very readily at 40 cents per gallon and butter milk at half the cost of tho sweet, w hile butter goos at from '- to .15 cents per pound. Tho open, prairie furnishes abundant pasturage through tho summer, fall and spring months, and in the winter at a small cost, on cotton seed, bran and prairio grass hay. Many kind wishes for tbe success of tho Hkkai.p. Uetlaw. Bciulqiiiirtcrs For oranges, app.es, bananas, grapes, nuts, candy and seasonable goods wholesale or retail. E. W. Gamble Grocery Co.
