One idea was expressed by all at- t e n d i n g , and t h a t was that Preston had a c q u i t t e d herself magnificently. Words of commendation and praise of the good people of Preston and v i c i n i t y , for the m a n n e r in which they did honor to the l Stars and Stripes, was heard from everyone. Greensboro was gay w i t h b u n t i n g aud a l i v e With the spirit of '76 on Monday, (^uite an elaborate program had been arranged for the celebration of Independence Da}*, and it was well carried out. A game of baseball, between the Henderson and Greensboro nines, was tho first a t t r a c t i o n , concluding about noon, with a victory for Henderson. Then followed the street parade, led by the? cornet band", aud then the bicycles and teams. The "grotesque" band, w i t h squeaky horn's, brought up the rear. The ten-mile country- road bicycle race was nest after th« parade and was won by Alvin Smith in the remarkably short time of 34 minutes. The r e m a i n d e r of the exercises were ou the grounds, near tho bridge, where stauds for tho band and speakers had been erected, the greasy pole p l a n t e d , and courses for races, etc, had been laid out. A. A. Christian, Esq., of Philadol- theDeclaration of Independence; Judge Armstrong, of Albany, N. Y. r made "a short patriotic address; the bag race, hundred yards dash, high j u m p , broad j u m p , potato 'race, greasy-polo climbing, egg and "ladle race, putting tho shot, tub and swimming races came along in order and made no end of f u n for tho spectators.- The ladies'of tho M. E. and P.-E. Churches had booths upon the grounds and reaped a harvest from the sale of ice cream, lemonade, etc. The crowning and closing feature of the cclebratiou was the display of fireworks at night, which lasted a couple of hours, closing w i t h a set piece representing the Stars and Stripes. Altogether, the citizens of Greensboro may congratulate themselves ou h a v i n g had a most enjoyable and successful celebration. Preparations are being made by a number of our people to tent at Chilton's this yeav. The prospect for a successful c a m p - m e e t i n g at this pt'iut was never brighter. The privileges havo been disposed of advantageously, and the nuances are well provided for. Pastor Johnson may be depended upon to secure a miuis- terialsupply of tho first order. The people of Sheppard's have added somo much-needed f u r n i t u r e to the M. E. parsonage at this place, much to tho delight and comfort of tho pastor and his wife.

Ou the Eastern Shore K e n t , Queen Anne's and Talbot and _ parts of Dorchesler and Caroline is a splendid w h e a t c o u n try. The crop in these c o u u i i e s is reported very poor. It is not only tho wheat crop of Maryland I hat is short. The peach orop o r d i n a n l v brings a large sum of money to the counties, aud t h i s year Uiore are few peaches. The tobacco counties have suffered from a severe d r o u g h t , and this w i l l reduce llie a m o u n t of crop planted or else make llie p l a n t - ing very late, with the result oC i n - ferior quality of product, w h i c h must sell at low prices. Our reports from Virginia indicate a s h o r t crop of wheat in that State, except in several 'of the counties of the Upper Shenandoah Valley. lu Rockbridge and Augusta t h e r e is a fine crop. The next consideration w h i c h will concern the farmers is the price they will receive for t h e i r wheat. That the crop of the United States w i l l fall far short of the estimates it is generally b e l i e v e d . This should s t i m u l a t e prices, and a f u r t h e r s t i m u l a n t is tho fact that there is no depressing s u r p l u s to go over. The surplus has been a wet blanket to the market for m a n y years, and the farmers can congratulate themselves that by reason of the short crop in Europe in 1897 it lias f i n a l l y almost disappeared. When the Loiter corner was at its height The Sun ventured the prediction t h a t whatever benefit t h e big prices then p r e v a i l - ing would bring, they would be to the advantage of speculators and largely at the expense of the f a n n e r in selling the new crop. That p i e d i c lion seems to be f u l f i l l e d , and the market is u n d o u b t e d l y s u f f e r i n g from tho reaction which followed this Letter corner, as it follows all corners. It may be that later on tho wheat market will revive and t h e ' farmers w i l l get trood or f a i r pricr-s. As soon as the farmers get m o n e y to spend they begin b u y i n g , the factories start up to fill t h e i r orders, MV ca.iiuiiig-b.ouso, s t a t i o n , on Thursday ovc'i.h- ,, . . v i , J u l y |4th, for the b e n e f i t of Hi,' :i.

I'-rcsh AlrSot'icly. As s u m m e r approaches there is a- general exodus from the city to sea- iide, m o u n t a i n aud c o u n t r y of those vhose means enable them to so do, b u t there is a n o t h e r class, "the chil- Iren of tho poor," whose summer lays 1 ar.o spent looking down alleys vhere the sum beams hotly all day, ind tho air from the close rooms of rowded tenements seem to parch ho throats that breathe it. In these illeys throngs of c h i l d r e n gather vhose wan faces and frail bodies how t h e i r great need of pure fresh ir and nourishing food. W h e n d i s - ase attacks them only new made lounds in the cemeteries tell the ad tale of this bitter struggle with ovorty. For six years the Children's Vcsh Air Society of Baltimore has ecu working to alleviate this mis- ry. People of tho city and rural istricts have nobly aided the soci- ty's efforts, the city s u p p l y i n g them loney aud the country furnishing lie homes. The children k n o w very ttle of those in the city who give rooly to aid t h e m , but their benefae- ors in the country are never for- otten. Childish lips prattle all the year through of "the good people in the country," aud many a mother's life is brightened and made glad by the happiness which conies to her children tli rough the visit to the c o u n t r y . Anxious little ones are w a i t i n g for the society to hear from its friends in tho country. It is the hope of tho society to gain many now. friends this year in tho towns and villages, and information regarding the work will be cheerfully f u r n i s h e d by Miss Florence Galloway, 4 West Saratoga Street, Baltimore, Md., to anyone interested in helping the children of the poor.

The Delaware Kecord, Harrington, reports a sensational elopement not devoid of the elements of fun as well as sorrow. A young man of 18, recently married, ran away with his mother-in-law. The Record says : Lust Winter a Miss Reynolds, daughter of J.. J. Reynolds, of Ad- amsvillc, married a young man by the n a m e of Norman Breeding, of Maryland. All went w e l l for about six m o n t h s , when Mrs. Reynolds paid Ler daughter and son-in-law a visit. This was the beginning of an ^episode t h a t has draped two homes iii m o u r n i n g -- t h a t o£ tho father and also the young daughter. It was but a short time after Mrs. Reynolds' visit when she began wooing aud c o u r t i n g the affections of, her y o u n g son-in-law. Mr, Reynolds finding out that something was going on wrong insisted upon her to come home at once. She flatly rnf used, and in a short time she went to work and sold all of her daughter's household effects, even to her clothes including her wedding dress. They then went to Brooklyn, she leaving her daughter at the mercy of the neighbors. Mr. Reynolds on bearing of tho desperate act of his wife sent for his daughter at once to conic home. Mr. Reynolds has ( h e sympathy of all his friends and acquaintances. It was said of him that ho was a kind and loving husband and an indulgent father, and his wife had no cause for such a disgracefal act. Tho young husband is but IS years old while" Mrs. Reynolds is over 40. 'It is more than likely that both will learn a lesson.
