him in P. C. MOORE'S blacksmith shop

whiuner, and on going to the shop found
him as above stated. The animal was
released, the bridle reins - tied about his

" There have been three claimants
under the recent sheep-dog law for dam
ages to sheep-by dogs—A. D. Munn, who
was awarded $23.00 by the appraisers; J.
B. Wheaton, who was aWarded $3.00;
Rowon Muun, who was awarded about
$37.00—50 one of our justices tells me.
Much has been said against the law, some'
claiming it to be complicated and imprac
ticable, without Ithsl. aid of a lawyer. A
practical test of its provisions demon
strates its practi4bility and usefulnes.

LORY, ' Esq.,
,of this place, sold his
horse "Mallory," on Wednesday of last
week, to A. S. ODELL, of New York, for
ton thousand and fire hundred dollars.
"Mallory" is as yet but a novice on the
turf, but that he is a very promising
horse, is evident by the fact that so expe
, dealer in horses as Mr. Onsm.,
was willing to pay the above large sum
for him. " Mallory " was entered in
races for the g i ist time during the season
just past, andiron first Money in, several
of the contests. He closed the season
with a record of 2:30, although in. private
trials be has trotted a toile in several sec
onds less time than his record giVes him.
He is without doubt one
. of the finest and
" speediest " younglorges in the country,
and we shall be disappointed if at the
close of next season he has not) reduced
his record to the neighborhood of 2:20.
' The Naiad reception at .

loyment to all who choose to attend. Prof.
Smuts's orchestra will ifarnieh the

first-class. We shall be 'disappointed if

L COTEMPORARY gives the following
good advice : "In order to sell goods the
people must first be informed where the
goods are to be had'; and such inforr6a
tion can best 'be conveyed through, the
columns of a live and readable local news
paper. The novelty of a small handbill
may attract the attention of the strolling
pedestrian, but the favorite newspaper is
welcomed into thousands of family circles
and read by tens Of thousands at every
borne." This matter of advertising judi
cially and profitably is but little under
stood, even by those in business. The
true secret of such advertising is to attract
the attention of the greatest number, of
buyers. An adyertisement'in an ephem
eral or occasional publication, has not the
same value as when it appears , in an old
and established family paper. For in
stance, the REPORTER goes into families
where it has been a welcoine visitor for
years. It is read by all tin; household, and
its contents carefully noted. An adver
tisement in its cokurins not 3nly comes to
the notice tof several persons each week,_
but: it is noticed iu such a manner as to
have ten times the effect and value of an
anneuneement given in a transitory and
unusual manner. The family newspaper
is the best medium of reaching the refill-,
ble part - or the community, and that paper
should be selected which enjoys in the
greatest degree the respect and confidence
of the public.
