Blackiston is repairing the stove house occupied by Mr. W. B. Stan con. it. Charles Morgan has bought the John II. Lloh f a r m near Cordova, 60 acres for £1500.00. Special trains will be ruu oVerthe Queeu Anne's road to Wyo camp on . Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.\ Mr. S. P. Brown, of Hickman, advertises a planer and matcher for sale on easy terms. Write to him. Mr. C. H. Bullock, jeweler, will remove to his new store, iu Mr. W. A. Stev/ar't's new. building, next week. Mr. W. II. M u r p h y , of Farmington, advertises a large sale of carriages nud farming implements in this paper. Read tho advertisement. Justice Hignutt on Monday last had Charles Thomas, colored, before him on a charge of swearing. The accused was found guilty arid a fine of $1.00 and costs was imposed. Rev. A. D. Dick, of Reliance, while out driving last Friday met a drove of cows on the road, his horse became frightened and ran away, throwing him and breaking the carriage. He escaped w i t h o u t receiving a scratch. About five h u n d r e d excursionists representing S u n d a y Schools of Harrington and Doi:ton spent tho day at Qiioenstowji Thursds}'. A spocial tiain convoyed tho party to an;l from tho resort, iind ;tu oujoyab'o day was passed. Duke, tho little sou or Mr. Mark II. Smith, was p a i n f u l l y hurt while playing in the new Methodist Protestant Church last Tuesday morning. Ho fell in some way. and was rendered unconscious. An ugly gash in his forehead w;is sowed u p ly Dr. Fishor. Mr. Willard H. T b a w l c y says the impression ha.s gotten abroad that tho lloliaess Association is to meet at Ennalls' camp-mooting on Wednesday aud Thursday next. This, Mr. Thawlcy says, is a mistake. The days are as printed on rhe posters-- Tiu-sday and Wednesday. Mr. Walter Todd, who has rocout- mciUs, plenty of cool, invigorating ail-, oven during tho hottest days of the heated term, and many people who go there make their stay a vacation, a rest from toil, and a ro- crealion r.hat helps to brace thorn up for the harder work of tho year. Iu spite of the modern improvements iu tent aud cottage life at those camps, the old time religious fevor frequently manifest itself, and shows' its wonderful power over saint and sinner alike. There can be no doubt that contemplation of tho work of the Almighty iu Nature encourages this religious ardor, and brings out that feeling of reverence and of awe which finds expression in an acknowledgment of the sovereign power of the Creator. But to the surroundings is added the eloquent pleadings from tho rude pulpits, coming from earnest men--from men who arc devoting t h e i r lives to tho Master's work. The Methodist Church, which makes tho camp- meeting a leading feature of its summer life, sends to these* pulpits in the groves its best and ablest preachers. It sends its bishops aud presiding elders, its great evangelists and its ministers whoso gifts of eloquence have made t h e i r names known the country over. It sends its best organizers, aud enlists iu its service at the camps ito best singers and most accomplished organists. It does tho religious and revival work at thcso camps in the most thorough manner, aud tho conversions every season uiako no small addition to tho great membership of tho c h u r c h . "Tlio camp-meeting is uot dying out. The attendance this -season will prove that it ha.s not lost its hold on thousands of people. They enjoy it, they profit by it. Their communion with Nature brings them iu closer c o m m u n i o n with Nature's God." 1 All, why Shanlil we, in tln.-~wrlil's riper year;,, m-plccl G«jd s niiciciil sanctuaries, am! aitoruO Only amoiiK tilt- crowd anil under rools Th.il our frail han.lb anvc rai^Lil?" ly received a Washington appointment, lias gone to t h a t city..' It will ·be ueccssary that ho resign the post- inastorship at Preston, and a number of applicants arc in the field. Among them are Messrs. Everett Kelloy, James H. Barrow and James A. Noble. Comptroller Goldsborough has made the apportionment of $150,000 for the purchase of text-books iu the several counties and tho cit}' of Baltimore, as required by the act of IS'JG. Tho money is payable on August 1st. Caroline receives $1,873.27 i'or white schools, and $460.04 for colored schools. Mr. George T. Mussolman, of Marydol, who recently entered the Railway Mail Service, has been assigned to the Chostcrtowu-Clayton route. Ho succeeds Mr. J. E. Draper, who has been promoted to the Philadelphia-CrisGeldline. Mr. Mus- solman is a capable young man, and the Kent News is right when it says ho will bo efficient and popular. The continued downward tendency of wheat has been 'tho feature of the grain markets this week. Yesterday good wheat brought 71 to 72 cents, but prices have ranged as low as 53 couts. Tho weakness of the market borders upon demoralization. The prices offered at Donton depot yesterday ranged from 55 to 70 cents, according to grade and condition. Corn is quoted at 39 to 40 cents. Thonfas Trice,« of Federalsburg, aged about twenty-five years, who was a passenger ou the south-bound Norfolk express due at Harrington at 1.50 p. IB., was killed at Woodside ou Monday last. It is supposed that he was leaning out from the steps of a car and was struck by the high platform ac tho station. The remains wore scut home, and inter- i n c u t took place at Chestnut Grovrv on Tuesday. Messrs. W. Price aud C. S. Barcns, of Henderson, were with tho tenters at Bowers' Beach last week. Fishing is good now, it is said. One man caught forty t r o u t iu a 'very short time one day last week. It was while engaged in this sport that Mr. F. T. Fleming's hook in some manner got uaught in the throat of a large sua turtle, weighing upwards of [450 pounds, and after considerable exertion and skilful mano.'tiveriug on the part of Mr. Fleming the turtle was landed.

Worship at Oak Grove camp-meeting, near BridgoviHo, ended abruptly on Sunday evening. While the preacher was announcing the text of the sermon ho intended to preach, two colored men quarreled, and soon one of the most disorderly affairs that over occurred at a camp-meeting was in progress. The quarrel, which seemed trifling at first, fast developed into a general fight, in which more than a hundred men participated, Delaware negroes being pitted against Maryland negroes. Revolvers, knives aud clubs were used, and at least twenty men were severely injured, three of them-Gains Richards, Howard Townsend and West Green, fatally. The escape of others seemed miraculous, as bullets and clubs ilew through the air constantly. Many persons fled whonihey saw the gigantic proportions the fight was assuming. Leaving tho pulpit and jumping upon a bonch in the midst of tho strife, the preacher pleaded with tho combatants to desist, but his appeal was not heeded. He departed when Richards, who stood near him, fell with tt bullet in his body. The bloody PERSONAL AND SOCIAL NEWS NOTES. o -V 1*1 torn More itml Klsculicru--;i Mntrlinuu-- lal Aiiiiuniii-emunt.

In the legitimate extension of advertising patronage to local news papers, there is often a lack of pub- lie spirit on tho part of some of the manufacturers, wholesale merchants and others. Without newspapers, a city or town would bo unworthy a place on the map. Everyone knows that. Yet it all costs money. There is no business in a town that would not in some shape receive benefit from advertising -- or at least would bo an incidental way of advertising tho town. Yet many of those who expect tho newspaper to bear this burden for their own or the general welfare, never reinforce tho journalistic sineVs of: war to tho extent of a nickel a year! We consider that simply as a matter of local pride, every business should advertise regularly, at, all events to a certain extent, and do it as a general principle, just as every live business man carries insurance. -- Nempaper- tlorn.

After marching about two miles we halted and sent eight men ahead to hide in tho woods aud ditches aud up trees. They represented the Spanish army. After they had been gone quite a while the Major selected Company F for scouting duty. Accordingly, squads wove sent out, iu charge of oorporalb, in different directions in advance to protect the main body from ambush. The boys each had nine rounds of cartridges (blauk) to fire on the enemy as soon as found. The Major complimented our boys on their work as scouts. They found seven out of the eight and captured them. Then wo came to a large field and lined up for battle, Company F being held iu reserve. The other companies advanced in rushes, firing as they went, and making bayonet oharges. We went through wide ditches of water, thick bushes, wire fences, aud through our first battle without a scratch. One of the boys came in with his head aud arm all tied up and reported that he was badly wounded. He had rubbed blackberries all over his face and arm. When the deception was discovered there was a good laugh. Corporal Leo Tull captured an old colored man aud took him to the captain as a Spanish spy. We then marched to the coast, and most of tho boys went bathing in the surf. After the bath we had more firing by jompanies, and then marched into camp. We are all getting restless o m'ove to the front." THREE WELL-KNOWN CITIZENS DEAD. ;ml Mr li K. CcillKim.
