Yesterday occurred the annual
election of fcchool district No 24 for
the choice of one director to serve
three years and the clerk, who holds
one year. The candidates for direct
or were O. P. I.itchileld, the present
Incumbent, and J. D. McCully,
whose name was brought out a few
days ago, and for whom his friends
put forth quite an ellbrt, but there
was no excitement and therefore
only a light vote was polled; in fact,
only those who could conveniently
step up and cast their ballots paid
any attention to theelection. There
was no opiiosltioii to David Simi-

A large and appreciative audience
gathered at the school house Satur
day evening, to hear the discussion,
and literary exercises of the debat
ing society. The question, Resolved
there is more happiness in single
than married life, was led on the
alllrinatl ve by Miss Grace Hunt, and
on the negative by Mrs. Ellen Ham
ilton; tliis being leap year it was
thought advisable for the benelit of
the doubting ones, who apparently
hesitate about exercising their pre
rogativeto bring this question be-
before the people. Matrimonial
bliss and single wretchedness, being
thoroughly established, to the per
fect satisfaction of all, good results
are expected to follow, and wedding
bells ring the proclamation of hap
piness, for more than one fair maid
en. The principal feature of the
literary exeicises was a minstrel en
tertainment, given by Messrs. F.
Win ren, John and Charles Short,
John Patton and L. Davenport.
The imagination had to be exercised
some to aid in the delusion, that our
boys were not genuine darkies from
Alabama, but the boys did well, and
all weie pleased with their eilbr.

At her hemic near Sublimity,
March 4th 18S8, after a painful and
lingering illness, Melcina, beloved
wife of Win. N. Smith, departed
this life. Sister Smith has been for
more than twenty years a happy
wife, and tender loving mother.
Her pure spirit doubly cluc-tencd by
tlie cares of her family and natural
ly frail body, has quitted its earthly
tenement, to take up its abode in
the beautiful beyond, hiving, she
was loved ; dying, she is sincerely
mourned by kindred and a large
circle of friends,
"bay back the quiet form, and
The dark locks from the waxen
And place upon the icy breast
Tlie cold nands that are folded
For our sister's work is llnished,
though not so the impress of her
Sadly we in the grange shall miss
her Itonnle bright face, and words of
counsel. We take comfort in the
"They never quite leave us,
Our friends, who have passed
1 tirougli tlie shallow of death,
To the sunlight above."
A thou-sind sweet memories like
the iierfuine of rare Hewers are hold-
ingthem fast. The works which they
left, the books which they read ;
the vacant chair, tlie empty plate,
the untouched pillow, the wanted
oarest. and gentle word, all speak
mutely, yet eloquently of our dead.
Therefore U it
Iitot.VKi, That Turner Grange
feels deeply the los of sister Melci
na Smith, and that we tender our
ttympnthy to onr bereaved brother
and family, therefore Ut it
Rtftsoi.VKit, that our charter be
draped in mourning lu Iter memory,
and tliat it copy of this memorial bo
given to llrothur Smith and a eopy
to the mviss Ibr publication.
