Houghton re turned from Bakersfield Monday evening, where they had been for the week previous. The brightened look that George brings back would indi cate that a visit to his native heath was a necessity to business men and should be oftener availed of. The pleased "look displayed on the physiognomy of Deputy Sherm Geo. E Town would indicate that he had StJ.?::'!? heard rlasant news, and questioning be says that he has a clear field for nomination to the office of High' Sheriff as against the old time contestants.

"Neighbor Jackwood" at Town Hall Thursday and Friday nights was greeted with good houses. The various parts were carried out in a manner that evinced that the rehears als had been conducted in a thorough manner, the only wearisome thing being the length of the play. This section has been surfeited with amuse ments for the past month, but the hearty response given to "Neighbor Jackwood by local talent, demon strates that the Morrisville people can always be counted upon aa loyal to our borne interests. The proceeds foot up $152.70, which helps out the Ladies' Circle to quite an extent in the work they so ably carry on. At the new tannery the managers are virtually getting beyond the "destructive" point in making room for the enlarged plant and conform to modernized ideas of how to con duct a business of this kind to com ply 1000 ideas and compete success fully with the large owners and oper ators in this line of business. Com petition is excessive in all lines, a many a small operator with an an tiquated plant can well attest. Every bihhII town can give an axample of it to its sorrow inside and outside this buliwick, but the seed sown here for home enterprise hus brought forth fruit, though thistle pricks may have been felt by the contributors, but by interesting those with local capital to take hold, it has lessened the Bting, and will won be forgotten. " Pinafore." an opera that has twice been accept ably given in this village, will be an attraction that should not be missed, Thursday and Friday evenings of next week. Mr. F. C. Lyon, tenor; Miss Agnes Dooley, soprano; Miss Adelaide Teachout, alto; Mr. John C. Browne!!, bass; are the outside talent that will assist in the ren dition.

He dwelt mainly upon his personal life, giving an account of his early boyhood, his slavery and what he did after free dom. He touched upon his service in the ministry, the regular army, and his work in the lecture field, the main object of the latter being to raise funds to publish a hymn book for his people. He referred briefly to his Morrisville experience. He was led into evil by being introduced to a certain person there as "a Christian gentleman and a member of the church," which he afterwards found was untrue. He had taken liquor freely because of his rattlesnake bite, which a physician told him was the only relief he could ever get. He thought this was trup, hence his drinking. The past two months had led him to believe differently and he was now of the opinion that alcohol was far worse for anybody than the most rabid snake bites. He professes sincere sorrow for his errors, and de clares he will not be again led into such an experience as belel him at Morrisville. Mr. Scott is a pleasing talker and held the attention of his hearers for over two hours. From here he goes to Wolcott. On Tues day evening he lectured on the "race problem" to a fair-sized audience.
