Our gates must not swing, when open, over the sidewalks. This did well enough for the Tillage days of Denton, but is now utterly out of keeping with the life and push of our little city. People are now too much hurried to halt constantly and close the gates that are swinging over the sidewalks in the daytime. And who is to pay the damages caused by such gates at night! Even the rapid pedestrian is halted entirely too suddenly by these gates at night; and with wheel riders there is double damage--to rider and to the wheel. Who is to pay these damages, the owner of the fate or the town of Denton? CITIZEN. i:Imrc 1 Mr. W. E. Wilson, secretary of the Caroline County Holiness Association, writes from Goldsboro: Our teut. 48 by 04 foot, was erected horo August 25th,anil nicotine: 8 weie commenced, out of which ;i great revival h n s coino. Hundreds of people for miles avouml attend. Good older prevails. Siuncrs arc COM verted and believers sanctified in every mooting hold. A great work is being done in tho name of the Lord, and the end is not yet. We pray "thy kingdom come, thy will bo dono on earth as it is dono in Heaven." Tho Christian Endeavor Society of this pla.ce will hold a "pound social" in their hall on Wednesday evening of next week. Throe h u n - dred pounds will be oonsideied the standard weight of a couple. Should auy young man and his friend weigh less than tho uuinbci of pounds given he will be charged a penny a pound for the difference. Likewise a couple weighing over three hundred will be taxed. Croain and cake, will be provided tor all who attend. A good time is anticipated. The revival services, which have been in progiess for three weeks at Smithson's M. E. Church, South, iu charge of Rov. 13. S. Highlcy, closed after three largely attended and interesting services on Sunday. Quite a number of persons professed conversion during the meeting, and the church membership was greatly revived. Rev. Z. H. Wobbler return oil from his vacation on Wednesday, and will fill his appointments tomorrow. The subject of his sermon tomorrow morning will bo "Singing the Lord's Song iu a Strange Laud." At night his theme will bo "Training for Heaven." Ho will preach in the afternoon at Central. Tho Methodist Protestant Church in this place will be dedicated on Sunday, 25th of September. TLero will be no services, at the other appointments on that day. The eutiro circuit will be expected to bo present. The officiating clergymen will bo announced later. The ladies of tho Aid Society of the M. P. Church will hold an oyster supper on tho evenings of the 15th, IGth and 17th of this month hi their hall. The Cfirolluu Game The giimo law passed by tho last session ol the General Assembly is apparently very complex, and as the JOURNAL was led into an error by the newspaper reports of tho law, shortly after tho a d j o u r n m e n t of tho legislature,which error was discovered in an examination of the law itself, a few weeks ago, we will endeavor to make the whole matter plaiu to our readers. The law was drafted by tho State Gatno Protective Association and the idea was to mako it uniform for the State. With this idea iu viow three sections k of the State law were repealed and re-eu- acted with amendments, and a dozen or more sections added thereto, in which tho time for shooting partridges or quail, rabbits, squirrels, doves, etc., was given, and others yet which prohibit at all tiuies the killing of song and insectiver- ous birds, a f u l l list of which has been published. In tho concluding sections of tho law, howovor, the repeal clause is modified by the proviso that the local game laws in certain counties--Caroline among tho number--be not repealed, but remain iu full force and effect.' The dates for' shooting garuo in this county are, therefore, j u s t as they have been for years, uudor the local law, every provision of which, license for non-resident gunners included, is yet in effect. And whatever restrictions are imposed by the general law, as amended, which are not included in the local law, are 'in effect in this county also. Eutou Fair Kxlilbita. In all departments tho exhibits of the Talbot fair, which opened at Easton Tuesday were creditable in number and of a high class in quality. This was especially true of the poultry exhibit, which was the best yet seen at a Talbot county fair. The display of farm and garden products showed that the Talbot husbandman ean hold his own, despite droughts or wet seasons, or aruiy 'worms, or other bugs that so bother the tiller of the soil. There was also a display of poaches that disprove that this fruit is a dead issue. There was a creditable display of sheep, especially of Shropshires and Southdowns, from Talbot and Caroline counties. Keceut Improvements in Duntoii. Messrs.

Along tho eighty-eight uiilos of railroad of the Baltimore Chesapeake and Atlantic Railway, f i o m Claiborno to Ocean City, there have been started within tho past two "yearp fourteen .industries. Of this number ten are canuiug factories, two are mills and the others are a cioamory and a crate aud basket factory. ^7 The new establishments, with their location and tho names of the proprietors, are as follows: Powell Adkins, canning factory, Berlin; E.

Day Brother, mill, Vienna; Wright Brothers, canning factory, Elhodcsdulc; J. W.

Admiral McNair, superintendent of the Naval Academy, Annapolis, has addressed a letter to Governor Lloyd Lowndes asking. for a history of tho building which is, now used as a library in tho 1 Naval Academy grounds, says an Annapolis dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. This building was once the residence of the proprietary Governors of tho State. It stands near the lower entrance to' the Naval Academy grounds. It is a dignified old brick structure, very solidly built. It was the Executive Mansion of the Governors of Mary- laud from 1753 to I860, and no G'ov- eiuor in America had a more charming home or more delightful surroundings. The last Executive to occupy the house was Governor Thomas Swann, in whose administration the present Executive Mansion was built, nearer to the State House, and completed in 1866 ;for the occupancy of Governor Oden Bowie. The new building cost $150,000. The old mansion was transferred to the general government, along with a considerable slice, of territory, to enlarge the Naval A«ad- cmy grounds, and the naval authorities havo very considerately pre- sfrved the main outlines of the noble pile for its historical associAtions, although additions wen made to it to meet present requirements' in using it for a library. It will be gratifying to the people of Maryland to know that there, is no intention to go further now thn may Je- necessary, and that allthe distinctive outlines of the building will be preserved after the extensive improvements in progress at the Naval Academy are completed. . i Sir Robert Eden was the. last Colonial Governor of Maryland to.- occupy tho .building. He lived* there from June, 1769, until June 26, 1776, when he departed for England, leaving the government of Maryland in the hands of the convention which framed the constitution of- that year. Governor Eden was less than! 30 years of age when he entered office, but it was perhaps due to- his discreet and prudent conduct, hit genial and kindly disposition and manners that the people of Maryland were the last of the colonists.- to declare indopendenee. He owed 'his appointment* to tho office of Governor of Maryland to his marriage to Caroline, daughter of Charles, fifth Lord Baltimore, and- sister of Frederick, the last of the proprietors^ It was after Mrs. Eden that Caroline county was named. 'Upon his: arrival at Annapolis with his young wife and two children Eden was suprised to find that city the centre of a refined and cultured society. Governor Lowndes has designated Mr.« Richard Dallam, Secretary, of State, to supply , Admiral HeNair with the information he desire* pertaining to'the history of the .bnild- Delaware State Fair, Doter.
