A fatal accident happened Wednes

Harmon Heeker residing near the

Heeker was getting dinner in some
manner upset a pot of hot coffee, the
liquid covering ber face aud breast
scalding ber IU a frightful manner.
medical assistance was secured, but it
was impoesile to overcome the eflects
ot the burn, mid the child died after a
painful eXH?iience Wednesday night.
The grand Jury failed to ictuiu a
true bill iigainst A'. F. rlt.iwe, thus re
leasing him from custody. This action
was due, not to u lack of cvlrletiee, for
his wrong doing was evident, but for
the purpose of giving the defendant
one more cbunee of r .-fomiaiioii. By

.bonds were obtained a lew day before

disposed persons, sulllccut money was

ever been helped so often und so gen

tew have shown so little gratitude.
Drink bus brought him within the
shodow ofu felou's cell; and, unless he
speedily reforms, drink will yet make
him a felon. We hope that this lesson
an dearly bought, will prove to biui a
lasting warning and be the means of

The grand Jury did not Indict either
Walter Bass or William liayt both of
whom were suspected of being the
parties who robbed Joe Buhl. It is
commonly rumored that the jury were
strongly Impressed with the guilt of
the dfeuduuts,but doubted the State's
ability to secure a conviction ou the
evidence obtainable. The crime of
which these men were suspected is a.
most dastardly one, und the vuilty
parlies should be severely punished.
This is hut one of the several crimes
oouimitted in this neighborhood, aud
yet no man has been mude to suffer lor
his guilt. The arm of the law seems
powerless protect totheooinmuulty aud
the efforts of our best citizens are un

If the guilty party Is the victim, but

many of our citizens noticed a fire due
west of this place, w hich was supposed
to be a dwelling on Are; but the next
day it was learned that it was the
barn of Mr, H. L. Lrissell. The cause
of the fire is unknown, but the most
plnusahle theory Is, that It was the
work of tramps M r. Laasell does not
smoke, nor had not had a light near
baru. Mr. Lassell says that it was only
forty minuts from the time he was at
the barn till it was discovered to be on

. ' Mr. Montague's Lsctura,
As the Exi'hbhs promised in Its last
Issue, Mr, Moiitaugue'a lecture on
Scotland proved to be a rloh treat.
lue spacious nan at me Academy waa
well filled. In order that the large
audience might be comfortably seated
before the lecture begun, Prof. Handle
pleasantly exhibited and explained the
beautiful new designs on the stage
curtains, a work of consider able artistic
skill. The sweet lingers of Lebanon
rendered several dilHcult and beauti
ful songs. The lecturer was introduced
and was received with much enthusi
asm. He at once began to unfold, in
chaste and eloquent language, the
thrilling history of Scotland, among
whose rugged yet beautiful hills he
was reared. He touched upon her
legends, the dawn of Ik r history, with
a charm that captivated his audiuiice,
and threw into bis story a pathos that
was irrcaiatable. Passlog briefly over
her unauthentic history, he began to
tell, with remarkable familiarity, of
her recorded history, in words so
simple, vet so beautiful, that his
audience was instructed while it waa
immensely pleased. He vivioly nar
rated the history of Bruce, his mis
fortune and his triumphs, of Walluce
and his heroic deeds and tragic death,
of Macbeth immortalized by Shake
speare, and of other famous and In
famous characters In the life of this
truly wonderful people. With the
grace and eloquence of a tragedian, he
quoted fumiliar lines from Shakespeare
and Scott, bearing upon these great
men.. His entire discourse might well
be published in full aud we regret that
our space will not permit it. - Without
intruding to flatter the speaker, we
will be permitted to add that his ac
curate knowledge of Scotland's history
and his charming eloquence enabled
him to deliver au address the superior
of which we have never heard.
We feel under obligations to make a
few remarks hi reply to an item which
appeared iii last issue of the Express.
It seems the "Acorn Shell" item fit
pretty well. Ii is all true anyway,
aud if. the shoe fits you, wear it. No,
your Sunday school, prayer meeting
and class meetings were not men
tioned iu connection with the League,
as I suppose "Sinner" had not heard of
auy one who wished to attend, being
denied the privilege of attending any
of your meetings, except tbe League.
You need not try to crawl back in
your shell and deny having told the
sinners they were not welcome at your
League, because you did politely in
vite them to remain elsewhere.
As for what our friend, Yang Tse
Kiang, says in regal d to the dance not
long since, we would Infer, be was
either not present or else does not cure
to tell the exact truth. Which ever it"
may be, he baa gratly misrepresented
things. It is true there was a little
disturbance created by some who were
strangers lu our community; still we
think the dance was more of a credit
to tbe neighborhood, than the way
some (who term Ibemselveschrisliuiis)
conduct themselves at Buttle Ridge.
As for that being the lust of the dances
in the vaclnlty of good old Battle
Ridge; we would kindly inform you
that we Have no intention of giving up
our favorite amusement as the dance
is the only place where the poor sin
ner is welcome to come, as the good
people of Battle Ridge are so weak in
their faith they are afraid to mingle
with tbe outside world. Now we do
not mean to cast any slur on religion
i t all; far from it. We only refer to
the way in which the reins are held at
Battle Ridge. Hoping Ynng-Tse-Klang
will experience great pleasure
in shedding those model christians,
(we do not include all) we thank him
for l:is good opinion of us, und to
gratify the curiosity of our noble friend
Yang-Tse-Kiaiig, wo will kindly In
form him that "Sinner" was not
present at the dance.
At Battle, Ridge they have a League.
A private one they say. I guess it
must be so; for I know sinners are In
vited to stay away. Sinneb.
