where there were three last year”
This is from one ot the largest and
most popular resorts in California, and
does not speak well for the travel dur
ing the coming wiotfcr. California
seems to have had a' big run, and the
south will receive the bulk of the win

we have as good a climate as can be
found anywhere and ample accommo

In reflecting over the loss from our
number ot Mrs. Retta C. Hansell, by
her entry, at the bidding of the Mas
ter, into that higher life—the reward
of them that, like her, are faithful to
the end—we feel that our right arm
has been lost. Ever ready, not alone
in planning or advising, but doing,
and that with an honest earnestness,
whatever was . to be done, she was
indeed our strength.
Possessed naturally of a nobility of
soul rarely seen, the grace ot God
abounding in her heart, she extended
her loving sympathy to all within
her reach, and sought to alieviate suf
fering, remove its cause, and elevate
the sufferers, whether from poverty
or vice, and direct them in the way of
life everlasting. To do good seemed
the motto of her life.
Public-spirited and modest, wheth
er in doing honor to the memory of
the heroic Confederate dead, in work
ing for the cause of temperance, in
promoting tlio growth nnd welfare of
her church, in relieving tho distress
of poverty and want, she was the
real leader and main-stay of the work,
though geneially declining the honors
of leadership, and in n private capaci
ty doing the principal work ,of tho
That one who was so bright a light,
so estimable an example in the com
munity, so helpful to so many of her
fellow beings, should ho called away
in the midst of her usefulness, is to us
who enjoyed the privilege of her
companionship, one of “His ways that
arc past finding out.” But, while
burdened with grief at our loss, wc
must turn to the great Father of all,
with gratitude that He gave her to us
while she was of earth, aud contem
plate with pleasure the “joy unspeak
able and full of glory” that is now
Put your stock in trim for the 15th
November. The premiums are not
large, but they should not be the in
centive. Bring what you have, that
others may profit by your success. An
annual exhibit of our productions and
resources would result m great good to
the county. It would infuse a spirit of
home pride, and stimulate emulation
to a degr« that would soon place our
County and section in the foreground;
make our people better contented and
more prosperous, and attract a healthy
class of immigration.
In the multitude ot other things
demanding your time and attention,
do not forget the 2$th ot November.
Make your arrangements to be there
aud contribute whatever you can to
make the day a pleasant ’ one and the
occasion a grand success.
A good many will go from here
next week to the exposition.
Misses Mary and Maggie Swirdell,

Messrs. Smith and Hawkins made
a partial canvass of the town yester
day, and raised about ten thousand
dollars in stock for tho proposed road
fiom Augusta to this point, making
the subscriptions now aggregate about
830,000. It is to be hoped that they
will raise tho additional 820,000 to
day. Let our people come up prompt
ly and subscribe, nnd not keep aloof
because they don’t want to take large
subscriptions. TI10 subscriptions so
far have been small amounts, and
this will ho best for the town, for it
makes more people interested in the
enterprise. There are, undoubtedly,
two or three men in our community
who could, without feeling it, take
the entire amount naked for, but it is
not right that they should bo asked to
do so. This is a duty that every citi
zen and tfx payer of tho town owes
to his home and family. It is a good
investment, and is calculated to en-
hauco the value of our property, nnd
place our town on a footing with
other points where there is railroad
competition. But we have
so often spokeD of the importance of
another railroad that it would be hard
to suggest an original idea on the sub
ject. Let our people at once subscribe
and put the ball in motion for another
