Johnson stil has an apparent lead in guberna- tional fight, though there is Miss Nellie Johnson, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. G. Johnson, passed from life to the heavenly shore, today at about i o'clock p. m. She had been ill for about a year continuously, losing from day to day in a heroic struggle with *the Great Reaper. During all this time she had all those kindnesses, encouragements and attentions which a loving father and mother could provide. - She was about 22 years of age and the youngr e*t??? child of a family of eight child ren, all of whom survive her except Phoebe, who died about three years ago of the same dread disease. Miss Nellie was well known and dearly loved by a large circle of sympathetic young friends, all of whom mourn her early death. The characteristics of her short life were such that she was a true and loyal friend, carrying a ray of sunshine wherever she went. Her parent? and family have the sincere sympathy of the entire community .- in their bereavement. INQUEST INTO OAK POINT DISASTER FINISHED AND VERDICT WILL PROBABLY BE MADE tit A PEW DAYS.

TO- SCENIC PRODUCTION OF QUINCY ADAMS SAWYER." .The scenic equipment of "Quihcy Adams Sawyer" which will be seen here Nov. 20, ,1003, at the Opera House is very elaborate and buih especially for the production. The managers of the play were determined that 'nothing mar the genuineness of the country atmosphere and' no expense has been .spared in the stage -settings. Many "have asked. "Why is 'Quincy Adams Sawyer' called the best New England play ever written ?" The answer has invariably been, "Because it's different any other play of its class." from "But why is*, lit different?" . "Oh, everything is so natural, the people are so just like the people you always see in the country, the scenery is just as real as ??? anything," is the reply. The husking-bee scene alone would win fame for the play. The real, red ears, the real kisses, the real supper and the natural and humorous incidents attending the features have pleased immense audiences all over the country. There is1 genuine . comedy all through the play, and a few touches of pathos strike as true and convincing. The story is a simple nad a sweet one apealing to the heart. There is nothing in it approaching a villain or an adventuress for it is not a melodrama, it is only a wholesome, clearly cut picture of New England"" life, and as ., such it finds favor everywhere, in town or city. The play leaves a good taste in the mouth7' and that is, after all, what the people want. New stock Ladies, Misses and Children's jackets, now on sale. Cloak department, second floor. The Biggs Jk Everard Co. A false halo halo encircles the ?i??7 ''"""_ . - '. " -~ head of the turf plunger. Like a peacock's .tail, it dazzles the eye to ihe unprepossessing feet. The plunger's fame is as useless as a tout's; his notoriety affects the sport disagreeably. His business is of 'dollars; if a sew-horse could win he would feel the -same pride he might over the victory of a Domino, or a Hanover, or an Ormond. , ??? Curiously enough, while it is generally supposed that money is made on the turf by chicanery, the more straightforward the plunger is, the longer he lasts. In America, we have one rather fine specimen of this genius. In reality I fancy there are few more honorable . men even in other bus- messes; and it really looks as though he would quit the game well ahead. This is the savage grace of his exceptional position ??? "he has lent caste to his ungracious role. If we were to publish a book tomorrow on his experience, I fancy the "key-note of his advice to others, would be, "Be honest."??? From "Little Tales of the Turf," by W. A.
