Two of the heaviest roads in the county--that from Denton to Williston, ancl that on the west side of the river, from Denton Bridge toward the Brick Mill--are being thoroughly repaired. These are much-used highways, and travellers along them will be glad of the change. Beginning on Monday next tho steamer Favorite will leave Queenstown every morning at two o'clock, except Sunday and Monday.

SPAPFRflRCHlVE® _ _ CITIZENS ASK FOR AN INJUNCTION Interesting IJtisutiun Alxuit the Crcrns thorough "J'urk." The t o w n commissioners of Greens borough a short time ago began th erection of afire-engine house ou th narrow, t r i a n g u l a r strip of laud, i the south end of tho t o w n , formec by the divergence of Main street an Back street, and k n o w n as th "Park." It is proposed to kce] therein the engine and a supply o oil for lighting the t o w n . Citizen living near the "Park" objected tc its erection, and through their at torneys, Lewis West, filed a peti tiou praying a writ of injunction to issue restraining tho commissioners from erecting the building, ou the ground that it will obstruct the view from, and injure tho value of then property. The Court set M o u d a j last for a hearing, at Ceutreville At that time the complainants pro sented an amended bill, alleging title to the "Park" to be iu Frederick P Roe and a Mr. Coursey, of Balti more county. In the amended bil it is f u r t h e r set forth that such :u expenditure of money as tho commissioners of Greeusborongh contemplate is unauthorized, and woulii be an illegal diversion of the corporation's money, more especially as title to the property is not in tho commissioners, who would be liable to an action of ejectment. The c o u r t postponed the hearing until the defendants should have t i m e to file their answer to the amended bill. When d e f e n d a n t s file their answer the parties l i t i g a n t will proceed to take testimony by commission. The case has excited considerable interest and the community is anxiously awaiting results. Attorneys Edwin H. Brown, of Centreville, and Albert G. Towers, of this town, represent the commissioners.

The county commissioners met on 'uesday last. They revoked the ommissions of W. D. Taylor, N. lorsey and William E. Liden, ap- ointed examiners on the proposed oad through the lands of Dr. Mere- ith and others. The clerk was di- ected to n o t i f y Captain Perry to traighten the public road running hrougli his lands. The commissioners went to Easton 'hursday, where they mot the Tal- ot board and considered bids for he new Dover bridge. There were ourteen proposals, the lowest being hat of the Pittsburg Bridge Corn- any, $S,99S. This was accepted. )he highest bid was $10,575. The ominissiouers, with their counsel, will hold another meeting at Easton n Thursday next to examine the joud required of the bridge coni- lany. On'e of the conditions of the ontract will be that the new struc- ure shall be finished iu ninety days. «· «··--· · Cows In Knrly Spring. It may surprise the experienced that although the cows can be put on pasture after grass appears the supply of milk is then usually reduced. This is frequently the case when any kind of change in the food is made, but especially so early in the spring, as grass is then more largely composed of water than at any other s«asou of the year, and consequently is also more laxative and less n u t r i t i o u s than when it approaches maturity. To offset these conditions give the cows a full supply of ground grain mixed with cut hay at night, and do not keep them ou the pasture but a short while each day at the beginning. Always give a full meal of grain and hay at night and also an allowance of grain in the morning--bran, m i d d l i n g s , corn meal and ground oats being an excellent mixture. A Shooting Affray lit Ilridgcvllle. William B. Truitt, of tho firm of Truitt Wiugate, Bridgeville, Del., was, perhaps, fatally injured Tuesday morning by being shot with a revolver in the hands of Alexander Close. There was trouble over a vest Close had bought of the firm, and the shooting was the result. Close emptied his revolver, four of the bullets entering Truitt's stomach, while the fifth went through his hand. Close was immediately arrested by Constable Dimes and placed in the lockup. It is said that Close was » Marylander before he removed to Bridgevillo, a few years ago, and he is reported to own considerable property, which is in trust. Mr. Wm. T. Bishop, who resides near Carville, Queen Anne station, is one of the fortunate land renters. He still holds hiscrop of 1800bushels of wheat and will sell it at war prices. Perhaps a few items from thi point will be interesting to you readers. Our t o w u , though isolatec from a railroad, which 'generally gives l i f e to a t o w n , is by no mean: a dead or insignificant one.

But there is one cheerful among them -- William Hardesty. It is never too wet for him to enjoy himself. There was a q u i e t marriage at the M. E. parsonage a few days ago Mr. William Lankford and Miss Mary Breeding being the contracting pai-ties. Rev. Mr. MeLain, the new M. E. preacher, tied the nuptial knot* They will reside atHickman. The Ladies' Aid Society of the M. E. Church met at Mrs. M. T. Hopkins' ou Saturday evening, and enjoyed a pleasant time.

Our school closes next week, and iliss Mabel S m i t h , teacher, will de- art for her home at Cape Charles, eaving many friends who will re- ;-rct her going. Miss Smith is an flSciont teacher, and it is tho general opinion that the pupils have greatly advanced in their studies ince she has had charge of the chool. It is the wish of a majority f the patrons that she return in tho all aud again take charge of the chool.

Special !ib|ntcli to the JOI'K.N-AI BALTIMOKK, MAY 13.--The Wins low has reached Key West. Lotuloi reports Sau J u a n surrendered, bill Madrid claims that Sampson was repulsed. Sampson aud Sclilcy said to have orders to pursue Spanish fleet from Martinique. An expedition landed at Cabanas, u n d e r cover of ships, ;tnd continued the fighting on shore. Insurgents joined the expedition. Late dispatches indicate that the Spaniards have at last realized t h a t they have a war ou their hands. Il is siiid that three of t h e i r war ships were sighted off the New _ E n g l a n d coast Thursday, but this story is doubtless, only tho sequel to t h a t w o n d e r f u l romance of Blanco wliich told of the capture of four American cities. If Spanish warships were seen they were e v i d e n t l y r u n n i n g from Admiral Sampson, who has been looking for them all the week. Despairing of catching the ileet, the American commander on T h u r s d a y attacked the fortifications of San Juan, the Porto Ricau metropolis, and iu a short time destroyed t h e m . One American was killed. This was the fifth man lost t h u s far, the f o u r others being members of the crew offjtho torpedo-boat Winslow, which was disabled in an action with the batteries of Cardenas Wednesday morning. The Spanish loss iu each of these engagements is supposed to have been heavy. The papers yesterday reported that the Spanish Qeet was about four h u n - dred miles south of Porto Ilico. If this'is so, there will likely be a battle in a few hours. Commodore Schley's flying squadron has sailed, presumably to join Sampson. Verification of the accounts of Dewey's wonderful victory at Mania was received Saturday, when the Government received its official report. The work of the gallant Dewey aud his men was even more com- pletothan the first reports intimated, and the" whole thing was accomplished without the loss of a man or a joat.' The cruiser Charleston sailed on Wednesday for the Philippines, carrying a heavy cargo of supplies 'or the American fleet. General Miles has gone to Cuba, itul a large a r m y is ready to move. · » · ^- -Hough on tin' Legislature. A good story is told by the rela- ives of ono of Smyrna's aged and beloved ladies, that is a h u g e joke on tho Delaware Legislature. The sidy in question has no doubt been ·eading more or less about the Leg- slature, the little it has accomp- ished, when it would finally adjourn , etc. She has been compelled to re- nain iu house for some titue past, ut one day last week took a walk lown town. When she reached ( h e n'siuess centre of Smyrna she sitw ^ great many flags hanging in f r o n t f the various stores. She did not *now what they meant, doubtless orgetting about the war, and when caching her home remarked a b o u t eeing so many flags, and wanted o know w h y "Old Glory" was u u - urled in front of so many business laces, asking if tho Legislature ad adjourned. Naturally, the query aused much laughter among the amily and it is evident she thought vhen the Legislatui-emen did ad- oui-n tho present session aud seek heir respective homes, tho e v e n t hoiiId be celebrated.--Smyrna Call.

Jan. 1. 189S, May wheat sold at 05 cents i bushel. Last Mondny May wuoat :ouchod $1.90 a bushel in New York and ftL.Tu at Chicago. It j u m p e d ip 40 cents last week and 30 cents more last Monday. The total visible supply of wheat in tho U n i t e d States at the present date is placed T,t over 2:3,000,000 bushels. This at |1.90 is worth $22,000,000 more today :han it was w o r t h at the beginning of the year. IE the price is maintained at or about $1-50 for the com- tiff crop, tho advance iu wheat since he war began will aloae more than jay all the expenses of the war with Spain though it last all the rest o£ the year.

An observer of the habits of birds tells how the wily woodcock lures the u n s u s p e c t i n g angle-worm from its secure hiding place iu the moist ground ot the meadows aud marshes. The woodcock goes a-prospocting when tho shades of night begin to fall, aud when a likely piece .of ground has been found strategic work is begun by puncturing the ground, in a dozen or more places, with its long, spike-like bill. The current opinion is that this process is simply spearing the worms; but that idea is repudiated by his wood- cockship. He has been too long in tho business to attempt to drag an unwilling angle-worm out of its bed in the ground, if it could be fairly seized w i t h the bill. Besides, he knows a trick worth two of that, and one t h a t may result in a harvest of his coveted food. It is probable that in his nestling days the story of tho Agio-worm's love of a revel in the falling rain was told him over and over again. The splatter of the rain-drop touches tho angle-worm's keenest sense of pleasure, aud calls it forth with tho punctuality of a soldier to tho rattle of the drum; therefore, an essential part of tho education of the woodcock, ere he left the parental roof-tree, was to perfect himself iu the imitation of r a i n - f a l l ou the ground. After ho has made the exit of the worm as easy as possible, by way of some of the various punctures already made, with outspread wiugs tapping the earth, the concert of falling rain is begun, and woo unto the unwary worms enticed thereby. Some of our sportsmen can corroborate part of this observer's story. Can any of them vouch for it in whole, or disprove it? ComiNiny F (Joes to rtnillro. Captain C. W.
