Nearly two hundred persons attended the Masonic banquet at the Town Hall Thursday night, a large per ceut. of whom wore ladies, iu whose honor it was given. Quite a largo delegation cauio from Miltou, Delaware--members of Endeavor Lodge, and their ladies. The lodge rooms on the third floor were all given over to the large company, who were f o r m a l l y received by Judge aud Mrs. Geo. M. Russnm, Prof. W. S. Crouso, Mrs. Geo. A. Deakyno, Mrs. Elizabeth P i p p i n , Miss Sallio Stevens anil Miss Nellie Johnson, in the Masonic room proper. For nearly an hour and a-half the orchestra discoursed sweet music and general greeting was t h e order. Shortly before ten o'clock the banquet room was thrown open, arid the decorations a b o u t (he room, while showing skill in their arrangement, were strongly suggest!vo of the patriotic sentiment so prevalent at this time, the Star Spangled Banner being cou- spicuously in evidence, with an occasional display of the natural accompaniment of the lone star -of Cuba. The tables, five in number, running the length of the room,were things of beauty. At the head of the centre table stood the Master of Temple Lodge, Z. Potter Steele, with Master Thomas H. Douglass of Endeavor Lodge at his right, aud at opposite end of it was Senior Warden J. Dukes Downes. At the head of each of the other tables was a past master oE Temple Lodge. Rev. Z. H. Webster invoked a blessing and the guests were seated. As Worshipful Master Steele said in his short address of welcome, it was a company pleasant to look upon. Response was made by Worshipful Master Douglass, ou behalf of the Milton visitors, and tho onslaught things edible became general. Hiirrbvillc. The first quarterly conference of Burrsville M. E. charge was held on Saturday hist. Dr. Baker, the presiding elder, made .1 fine impression. He preached at White's on Sunday a f t e r n o o n to a large and appreciative audience. The quarterly conference decided to raise the preacher's salary OHO hundred dollars. Mr. Jamos Voss, one of our time- honored citizens, is on the sick list. Mr. Voss is nearly eighty yeais old, and some apprehension is felt in his case. Prominent in tho community, beloved in the church, which he has served for sixty years, bin recovery is very desirable. The M. E. parsonage of this place was raided one evening last week, aud the pastor and his estimable wife were pounded. The proceeding was so painless that the preacher and his better-half seemed to enjoy it. War and uaval exploits seem to be the current topics with our people. None have enlisted, however. The grounds of contention .are too far from home to stir their patriotism. Miss Eva Stafford, who was recently graduated from tho Denton High School, is contemplating a course iu the Conference Academy. Mrs. M. T. Hopkins recently spent a few clays with her son, who is engaged in business in Philadelphia. A quiet marriage was solemnized on Sunday evening at the M. E. parsonage. Rev. L. T. McLain has this week \een ou a visit'to his son, at White Haven, Md. Miss Addio Porter'is in Philadelphia, learning the millinery business. Our farmers are very busy plant- in " corn. on ·During the engagement the orchestra floated the Star Spangled Banner, in an inspiriting wa3 f , over tho heads of the enthusiastic assemblage. Past-Master John S. Burnhart, after the cream, cake aud fruits had been done justice to, took the floor as toast-master and neatly introduced Mr.'M. B. Stephens, who responded in his usually happy way to the toast -- "Our Lady Guests." Mr. Harvey L. Cooper became enthusiastically patriotic in responding to the toast, "Remember the Maine." Dr. Robt. Hopkins, Messrs. Thomas Coverdale, N. W. White, Joseph Lank, and others of Milton, made well-rounded short speeches on call. Mr. Albert G. Towers spoke about "The Now Woman;" Mr. Willard E. West on "The Anglo-American Alliance;" Mr. W. H. Deweese, Rev. W. H. Kenney, Prof. F. A. Waugh, of the Vermont Agricultural Experiment Station, and Judge Russnm were called iipon and some pungent remarks were made by each. The speech-making closed with the 'response of Rev. Z. H. Webster to the toast, "Masonry," and the assemblage dispersed. It was an altogether enjoyable and enjoyed occasion, so was said upon all sides, and Temple Lodge has a large lot of well-wishers about this time. The Miltonians left for home shortly after midnight, by special train. The Odd Fellows of Denton Lodge enjoyed a fiue set-out at their hall on Wednesday evening, a committee for the purpose having provided entertainment of an interesting character. Those members who failed to attend missed a social feature of their order which would 'have been both entertaining and instructive to them, for beside the refreshments, which were temptingly served, there were short addresses' by several of the members on subjects particularly interesting to the Odd Fellow. Mr. R. Earle Fisher, formerly of this town, is a member of the Fifth Maryland Regiment. He expects to go with the ju-my soon to invade Cuba. Mr. Fisher, who is a son of Dr. G. M. Fisher, of Denton, was assistant State Librarian under Col. L. H. Gadd. He left his law practice at Annapolis to enlist. Mrs. John Howard, who has been treated in a hospital for some time for an affliction of her left eye, has returned home. A cataract was removed, a very delicate and difficult operation, and now her sight is fully restored. Miss Katie K. Hobbs, formerly principal of. Denton High School, now ono of the instructors in Washington Collpge, Chestertown, was a visitor in town on Friday and Saturday of last week. Mrs. William Longfellow, Greens- borough, entertained her mother, Mrs. Andrew Clark, of Marydel, and Misses E m m a Clark and Elva Gni- well, of Felton, this week. A marriage license was issued from the Clerk's office last week to Frank Taylor, of Easton, and Miss Addie Payne, of Harmony. Mrs. Charles E. Turner, Ridgely, is the guest of her brother. Rev. Alfred Smith, Dover. Miss Ella Moore, of Greensbor- Coiicoixl. Since the departure of a certain young lady from this viciuity nickels do not flow into our hostler's pocket so plentifully, but he thinks he will be able to hold his owu until the c a m p convenes, at which time he looks for a revival of his business. While Mr. W. W. Dukes was loading some lumber at Todd's mill one day last week, his horso took fright, ran away and badly wrecked his wagon by coming in contact with a tree on the camp-ground. Mr. John W. Loockerman, of Camden, Del., son of William Loock- ermau, Esq., of this village, has joined the Delaware regiment, and is now stationed nt Camp Tuuuell, Middletown. Misses Amanda aud Winnie Griffith, Miss Mabel Smith, Mr. and Mrs. W. A: Johnson, and Mr. James Griffith, all of this place, were the guests of Mrs. Alice Stafford, Burrsville, on Sunday last. Mr. W. Scott has a curiosity. It is a younir lamb. Three of its feet are shaped like a mula's hoof, while the f o u r t h has three toes. Some of our young folks attended Sam Jones' lecture at Fedevalsburg on Monday night. They give glowing accounts of it. Mr. W. R. Fountain was painfully hurt by being kicked by a horse one day last week. Miss Mabel Smith left on Monday for her home in Cape Charkts, Va. Goldsborougli. Mr. Harry Walls and Miss Mary Roe, of Church Hill, and Mr. E. M. Ross, of Barclay, were Miss Bertha Graham's guests on Sunday.

Church South are arranging for a festival to be held soon. Mr. Jones, of Philadelphia, was down thjs week, looking at his farms near town. Miss Mattio Bennett, who has been sick for a long time, is'able to be out again. Miss Novilla Greenly, of Centreville, is visiting her aunt, Mrs. N. E. Williams. Misses Pearle and Ethel Bradley have returned to their home at Hartley. Miss Bertha Graham visited Smyrna last week. G O V E R N M E N T ISSUESANOTHER CALL. Seventy-liveThousiiml More Needed--Otlu-r Wnr News. The strict censorship maintained by the G o v e r n m e n t over all press dispatches concerning the m o v e m e n t s o£ war vessels, aud the refusal of the Navy Department to make public the official c o m m u n i c a t i o n s from tho c o m m a n d i n g officers leaves the people aJsolutely w i t h o u t a u t h e n t i c war news, a commodity very m u c h in demand just now. Sunday's report that Cervera's fleet had been de- ground, died on Saturday last, after a lingering illness, aged thirty-three years. His affliction was a pulinon- ory disease. The funeral took place on Monday, the Eev. C. E. Dryden officiating. Interment took place in Denlon.cemetery. A "festival oE tho nations" was held at Epworth Hall on Tuesday and Wednesday % evenings last. About fifteen young ladies represented by their costumes a like number of the great nations of tho earth. In their striking attire they served the public with delicious cream, cake and fruits, and purchasers were many. The hal.l was prettily decorated with bunting and flags. ongh, has spent the week with Mrs. W. H. Anderson. Mrs. Eliasou, of Greensborough, has been visiting Mrs. J. H. C. Legg, at Centreville. Miss Katio Duffey, of Hillsboro, has been visiting Washington relatives. Mr. John T. Carter, of this place, was in Camden early this week. Mr. Frank DeFord is quite sick at his home in Tuckahoe Neck. Mr. Brown D u n n i n g , of Baltimore, spent Sunday in Deuton. Mrs. Belle Deweese, of Camden, is visiting Denton friends. Mrs. N. A. Hutson visited Dover relatives thia week. Cordovii. Noah Smith, a white man employed by Brown Bros., was seriously h u r t last week by a tree falling on him. His head and faco was badly lacerated. John F. George, Jr., has sold his farm, near this place, containing forty-six and a-half acres, to James A. Wilson, for $2,000 cash. Miss Beulah Day and Miss Bessie Jarrell, of Ridgely, were guests of the Misses Rose, Saturday, Sunday and Monday last. Col. James Mcrrick, of Barclay, Queen Anne's county, has been visiting his daughter, Mrs. L. M. R. Carter. Mrs. Nellie Clark is visiting her sister, Mrs. Elijah West, Wye Landing. stroyed was received very cordially by an anxious public, aud cherished very fondly u n t i l Monday's intelligence pricked the bubble and left ns worso off than before. About t h e only t h i n g s which have transpired this week bearing particularly OH the war with Spain are the sending- of troops to Dewey and the call for 75,000 extra volunteers. Commodore Schley is supposed to have the Spanish Admiral "bottled up" in t h o h a i - bor of Santiago, on the southeastern coast of Cuba, but this lacks confirmation. If this be true, however, the Spanish game is up, for the exit to this harbor is such that but one vessel can pass out at a time, and when Cervera's ships come, for come they must when rations get low, what Schley will do to them will be an abundance. Tho insurgents control the country round-about the city, cutting off supplies by laud, and with American warships at the harbor, the position of the inmates of the city is an undesirable one. When the pangs of hunger begin to gnaw at the Spanish sailors we may expect a naval engagement, and not much before. Under the last call for volunteers Maryland's quota is 1,166. The Fourth Regiment, which was not included in the first call, will likely furnish the greater part of this number, although preference is not to be given the National Guard this time. Private companies will have a chance, and, no doubt, several will be organized. Mnrydcl. Miss Emma Hull, accompanied by Miss Topsy Fallowfield, spent Saturday and Sunday with friends in town.

The Lecture Bureau has engaged him for the first of a monthly series to be given by them next fall and winter. Strawberries are plentiful arid very nice, b u t prices are low- Thoso who go to Bridgeville to niako sales get by far tho better price.

JlytihOik* Our school held a May party at the close of school. A very pretty program was arranged by the teacher, Miss Ella W hi teley, and the pupils. The exercises consisted of miu-clting, recitations aud singing. Each p u p i l was presented with a s o u v e n i r by tho teacher, and they presented her with a very nice rug. The exercises wore closed by an address by our pastor, Rev. J. H. Wilson. Mr. N. H. B e n n u t n , of B e u n n m Station, Delaware, gave a very interesting lecture on education last week.

Baltimore harbor restrictions, i m posed by the govern incut, will injure the trade of that city, it is said. 'It is hoped that the regulations will be modified. Under the present regulations, bay steamers arriving below Fort Carroll d u r i n g the n i j j h t must wait u n t i l d a y l i g h t before they may couic up to their wharves. Mr. John S. Wilson, president of the Baltimore, Chesapeake and. Atlantic R a i l w a y Company, says this restriction w i l l cause s h i p m e n t s of f r u i t aud form produce to arrive in Baltimore late i u t h e day instead of early in the m o r n i n g , as heretofore. The delay w i l l cause d o t c t i o r a t i o u of the products, besides the m a r k e t for them is not so good late iu tho day as early in tho morning. Eastern Shore farmers have an all-rail line to Philadelphia, and Mr- Wilson says thoy w i l l scud their produce there instead of to Baltimore w h e n they find w h a t disadvantages they will bo u n d e r if the restriction of bay navigation is continued. Mr, Wilsou t h i n k s the regulation should be modified so as to permit light- draught steamboats entering the harbor at night. No vessel of his company draws over nine foot, aud this is U3t sufficient to disturb the mines. Col. P. C. Hains, engineer in charge, was asked to so modify the present regulations, but said he had 110 power to make changes. Lynched lit Surisbury. Garfiold King, the negro who shot and killed Herman K e u u e y , a w h i t e boy Saturday n i g h t last, was taken from the jail iu Salisbury Wednesday night aud hanged to a tree in front of tho jailyard. About 11 o'clock several men rode iuto town from Trappe district and halted iu front of the jail. Every few minutes men dressed in gum trousers, ta,r- pauliu hats and gum bodts could be seen going a r o u n d tho courthouse in tho direction of tho jail. At m i d n i g h t , when the electric, lights were s h u t off, a cheer went up, and shortly aEteward signals could be heard. By this t i m e the crowd had swelled to over 100 quiet, determined m e n , talking in whispers and a w a i t i n g their leader. At 12.30 a. in., tho leader arrived with a shot- g u n , accompanied by three other men with largo clubs. Tho jail door was knocked down with a heavy telegraph pole, used as a ram, and the cell door door knocked to pieces w i t h a sledge. Tho v i c t i m of. the mob's fury was hustled down the jail stairs and hanged, and the body riddled with bullets. the ou COL. TILGHMAN AND ADMIRAL DEWEY. The Hero of .M,inil:i, imcl His f l s l i t W i t h (he T.ilbol l.iriitfnurit. Col. Obwald Tilgliinau, of Easton, is probably the o n l y man now l i v i n g who knocked Admiral George Dewey out in time of war. Bat it was when Dewey was a youngster at Port Hudson, d u r i n g the war between the States, where Mr. Tilghman, theu a l i e u t e n a n t of the Rock City Artillery, had charge of a Confederate batteiy, aud Dowey was in command of tho Mississippi, gunboat, attached to A d m i r a l Farragut's fleet, which was opening up the Mississippi river and clearing it against Confederate absaults. Ho trained his own g u n of his bat'.'ry ou Dewcy's boat, tho Missist ^pi, aud destroyed it. Tho following is Colonel Tilgh- rnau's account of the business: "As soon as t h e steamer Mississippi hove in sight we opened a hot fire on her, which was responded to by tho e n e m y . It appears that one of our shots struck the rudder chains, which caused the tiller to become fouled, so that the vessel was soon unmanageable and i n a short time w e n t aground hard aud fast. This was our o p p o r t u n i t y and we began to shove shot into her faster than ever, and soon the vessel gave signs of sinking. Young Dewey was one of t h o officers on the vessel, and as they saw there was uo chance to save it, tho ship was abandoued and many of tho crew aud officers took to the water and swam to the other ships, among whom was LieiitouantDewej 1 . I had almost forgotten this incident u u t i l I heard of Admiral Dowey's victory at Manila, when it came back to me. I i m m e d i a t e l y sent him my congratulations, and will send him a letter telling him of our fight, aud at the same time i n f o r m him t h a t each n i g h t I pray to the Lord to protect him aud at the same time t h a n k tho Lord also that I did not kill .him at the Port Hudson fight, as he Lad a mission to accomplish and it would have been a shame to have t h u s ended the existence of such a brave man. Incidentally, I may remark that I am t h a n k f u l I was not killed. I hope we will live to meet each other."--Baltimore Sun. Corn lire.ul The Louisville Courier-Journal Las discovered that nobody in the South need be alarmed about tho high price of wheat or tho manner in which the operators pitch that price iip w h e n e v e r they please- Says t h a t paper: "The high price oL' wheat and /lour is hard on the; pockets of the housekeeper, but it need not h u r t anybody. What's the matter with corn bread? Properly cooked, it is a most palatable aud n o u r i s h i n g article of diet, aud the only wonder is t h a t its use is not nioro general. It is more digestible than tho whcatcu loaf aud is equally adapted to the requirements of the laborer and the man of sedentary habits. The negro farm hand in the South lives and works tiie year round on bacon and corn "pone," and there is no more vigorous m a n t h a n he. A little more corn bread aud a little less of dyspeptic biscuit would be a real gain to the nation. Let us soil our wheat abroad and join in consuming that grain which flourishes hero in its greatest perfection. No workingmau need suffer bocauso tho price of flour has gone so high. Commenting, the Atlanta Journal says: True. No sweeter bread than that made of cornmeal, none better for the physical comfort and strength of man has ever been devised. Judg- m e n t and skill are required to make the best corn bread and egg bread, but those qualities are possessed by almost every housewife and cook in the South. If the wheat manipulators continue to play football with the material for biscuit, let us snap our fingers at them and devote ourselves as a people to the bread of which corn meal is the main ingredient. It can be made into a h u n d r e d tempting, palatable and wholesome forms. It is cheap and there i uo better food obtainable." BOARD OF TRADE BY-LAWS ADOPTED. The i-f,Miii/:il ion ;·! tine; in Working Order --A .ffccllng Itlomlny. Not a very large number o£ citizens attended the meeting Monday n i g h t , in the grand j u r y room, to adopt a constitution aud by-laws for tho board of trade for Deuton.
