Upbovemems. —Wc have sometimes thought
limt wc would publish a list of the impro vements
hein* made in this place, in the way of new
buildings. &° > and have taken an observation
,ftbs town for the purpose; but each time ire
bjrc observed a number of buildings in course
direction, and thought wc would defer our
coticc until they were completed. ‘ By the time
jijfy were finished, however, as many more
would bd about as far advanced, as the-others
were when wo were around before, and conse
quently wc would defer our notice again. We
isto now came to the conclusion that wo can
not keep up with the improvements in building,
jaJ notice each one separately, as houses are
p,ing up all around us every day, there has
b«n wore houses put up this spring than any
previous one. Some of opr citizens will hardly
believe this, but if they do not, all wo ask of
jucm is to take a walk around town and count-
H (he bouses, and if they do not find it so, wo’ll
stand treat. The best part of the matter is that
nearly all of the houses pat Up are of a good
tiro, well finished, and ornaments to the town,
should this state of prosperity continue, Altoo-
C n will be a city in five years.
Notwithstanding the number of buildings that
have been erected, it is harder for renters to
obtain a bouse to-day than it was five years ago,
and then it was considered next to impossible..
Tight Rope Performance —On ’Saturday
evening last, a tight-rope walker named Nagle,
gave the citizens of this place an exhibition-of
his agility and daring. His rope was stretched
from the attic window of Shultz’s Hall to the
top of a house 100 feet distant At the
ed time, between six and seven o’clock, be ap-
peared on the top of the house, dressed like a
circus performer, and went through a number
of daring feats, much to the satisfaction of the
large crowd which had collected to witness
them. A rather amusing; incident occurred just
as the professor emerged from the trap door in
thereof. A number of the ladles who weie
standing on (the vacant lots and ahont the doors
of the houses on Virginia street, which was tp
the eastward of the rope, let ont a little shriek
and palled their bonnets over their eyes.—
Of coarse we attributed their seeming agita
tion to nervousness, but we afterwords found
out our mistake. The ladies had never before
seen a man dressed in “tights,” a la circus,
nod thought he Was naked. We then appre
ciated their situation and the cause of their
trepidation. On being informed that they were
in error-they consented to look up again.
New Invention.-— A few evenings since wc
tod shown an invention got up by our towns
man,, James Widney, styled a self-adjusting car
coupling, which is designed to avoid the neces
sity of gomg between the cars to conple them
when they are rap. together, the dangerous na
ture of which is wdll known to all acquainted
with the business. The demand for an inven
tion of this kind is certainly great, as the maim
ed hands of many persons who are now, orhave
been, employed on; railroads will attest. The
invention of Mr. W., if it isfonnd to work, and
wc don’t see why it should not, will entirely do
■iwny with this dangerous part of the business
of railroading, as by it trhe coupling adjusts it
self immediately upon the cars coming together.
'Ve will not pretend to give a description of the
invention, although it is a very simple one, and
can bo applied to all couplings as they are now
made, at a cost of from 37$ to 75 cents (at the
ontside) per car. AYp ’understand that it is to
° have a trial, when, if it meets common expecta
tion, Mr. W. must make something handsome
ont of it. At all events it reflects credit upon
bis inventive genius.
Misses Pic NxC.—We learn that a. party of
the misses of this place had quite a nice little
picnic, all by themselves, in the grove west of
town, on Monday lost. That was once the
noses of the joudg would-be-gallants were too
tbo-t to “ come in.” We think the young ladies
much modesty inconclu
|bng not the printers a nice, pound cake
fnrfear they would i notice their party. Come,
misses, you must pat away all such foolish no
hens, and when you have anything good or nice
Wyoar little gatherings, always remember the
printers and .they will .say something nice about
yon. We excuse you this time as it is your
fet offence. *
Fisauy Committed.— Hamilton and Hei

arrested on the Charge of being the per

section of the.kew Penal Code, passed by the
Legislature last winter, is of great importance
to those who deal la drugs of any kind which
are used ns poisons; ,
“No apothecary, druggist, or other person

strychnia, arsenic, prussic adiil, or .corrosivc

In all cases of saoh sale tke/word 1 poison shall

TBAcnsns’ Association.—The Teachers’ As
sociation of this county ’ met in, this place on
Friday last, and wc are sorry that we did not
attend, os we learn the proceedings were very
interesting. We hear an essay read by Prof.
Mitchell complimented veiy highly, os also that
of Mr. Whitington. Their essays, wo understand,
were requested for publication, but their own
ers declined giving them, off the ground that so
long as they held them they were private pro
perty and oonld be used again, but If given to
the public through the newspapers they became
public property and were afterwards useless
about home. While we are anxious to get hold
of good compositions to publish, wo are, never
theless inclined to think that it is sometimes
wise and right for persons to withhold essays,
&o., as the authors are thereby saved
the time and labor of preparing another should
they be.suddenly called upon for something of
the kind; and many persons.excuse themselves
from attending meetings where saoh essays arc
read, by saying that of coursodncy will be pub
lished and we can read them in the paper.
Destructive Land Slide.—A very destruc
tive land slide occurred near Sewioklcy, yester
day, through which the beautiful residence of
Mr. R. H. Davis was rendered almost a total
loss.- The slide commenced early on Sunday
morning, and moving at the rate of four inches
an hour, the house was soon effected, and be
fore anything could be done to save it was-nl
most destroyed. Some three hundredmen were
at work all day on the premises, and but for
their efforts the damage would have been much
more serious. The building cost some §lO,OOO,
and-was one of the most elegant structures in
that section of the country. It is now unten
antable, and so shaken that it cannot here

Bronchitis.— This disease consists in an in

bronjjual tubes, and is generally attended with
cough, increased discharge from the throat and

its radical cure is Dr. Keyser’s Pectoral Cough
