had served an apprenticeship, had good

'On the contrary, I think it will have

which it is given is a most worthy one
and cannot fail, to meet the approbation
of every person within whose' bosom
glows the ennobling spirit of patriot

privilege to aid the needy . veterans of
the knightliest soldiery that ever struck
for freedom. For us they suffered and
by their fortitude and courage they
taught the world what brave, honorable

they believe to be right. We trust that

of September ne of the sickliest of tho
yearwhen decaying vegetation under
ihe influence of the frequent rains and
the heat of the sun's rays, will be con
stantly throwing its poisons into the
atmosphere to carry sickness and
possibly death to humanity. -Heat,
moisture and vegetable decomposition
are the great evils with which we have
to contened until the frosts of the latter
part ofOctober set in, and to . guard
aeainst these our efforts Should be
directed. All decaying vegetable matter
should be at once removed or buried
and all premises should bo thoroughly
and frequently disinfected. Heads of
families should cheerfully assist in this
important work, and should be watch
ful that ho indolent or careless servants
should permit any accumulation of filth
or garbage The city i3 remarkably
healthy now, and wo doubt not that
with proper vigilance and care it wil
remain so. ' !!

From a friend and subscriber at

that the farmers of that section have
nearly finished fodder pulling, and thus
far they have had excellent Weather for
curing it., Mr. J. Yopp has raised a
watermelon which weighed 55 pounds;
Mr. D. R. Canady has pears which turn
the scales at 20 ounces, while Mr. C.

weigh two pounds. Messrs. J. Capps
