Hop Bottom- G.W. Simpler has his store refilled with new goods of all kinds for family use and he has the largest stock of Christmas goods ever seen in any store in town.
Harford - The children of the Soldier's Orphan School had an unusual treat the 28th of Nov. In addition to the fine dinner provided by J.M. dark and his assistants, they had a chapel exercise and almost every one of the scholars made an impromptu speech telling how much they desired to live better lives and improve their rare opportunities the coming year than ever before. In the evening the teachers and employees surprised them by acting a play, entitled "The Parsons Thanksgiving Donation Party." It was a success in every feature, and it would have done anyone good to have looked into the bright, happy faces of those soldiers' orphans. They are to have a series of lectures there the coming winter, by such men as Coil. Ripple and Mr. Hitchcock for the especial benefit of the children, to which the public are cordially invited by Mr. Clark.
Union Dale - Oney Rounds is building an addition to his storeroom. It will be fitted up as an oyster, confectionery and ice cream parlor something we needed, and the girls will now be happy. How about the boys? AND The recent rain has been all that we could ask for. Once more the busy hum of our mills remind us of life and activity and the way our grist mill is eating up the grain, shows how far back our mill was with its orders, and the tune of the turning mill is never ceasing now and double time will have to be worked to catch up. Welcome rain, thrice welcome.

News Briefs: The Mount Lebanon Shakers have recently perfected an ingenious cure for dyspepsia. Their Digestive Cordial consists of a food already digested and a digester of food happily combined. The importance of this invention will be appreciated when we realize what a proportion of the community are victims of some form of stomach trouble. Thousands of pale, thin people have little inclination to eat, and what they eat causes them pain and distress. The Digestive Cordiala of the Shakers corrects every stomach derangement at once. It makes thin people plump. Every one will be greatly interested to read the little book, which has been placed in the hands of druggists for free distribution. What is LEXOL? Nothing buy Caster Oil made as palatable has honey. Children like it.
