The Oakville Express. TOWN AND COUNTY. Dipn’r come a-miss ; that boy baby. No quorum at the council on Monday evening. Onze way to “get out of a scrape,” let your beard grow. Firry cess will pay for Tau Expruss to Jan. Ist, 1879. Cornnars and neckties, new styles, at John A. Williams. Mr. Tso’s. Parrmrson is prepared for the rush for thin wear ab this season of the year. Ir seems that a perscn is compelled to take copper cvin to the extent of 25 cents in payment of a debt. Mr. Wu. M4rrry has the pleasure of looking over a three acre lot of the finest prospective crop of potatoes in this vi- emity. eS Frep offers a reward for the arrest of the person surreptitiously introduced a hornet’s nest into the grab bag: Mr. W. HE. Hacaman spent. several days at home during the past week, away from his business at Ridgetown. No marrer how great a philosopher a man may be, he can nevér withstand the temptation to kick an empty oyster- ean. : {ux faithful earth is not a tiggard friend ; but pays with ample interest, — what we lend. And proves its credit good. STRAWBERRINS are now over in this ‘icinity. We hear it estimated that during the season about 200 tens were shipped. AN editor wrote at sume length upon The Future of Hog Raising, and the rival paper advised him not to be so sol- icitous regarding his descendaitts. Tne Credit Valley Railway Co:, is ad-} vertising for 200 men t0 do ballasting and tracklaying at Milton and Brampton, —wages one dollar and steady work. Fripay last, 11th, we had a heavy fog, and a heavy rain,—instead, of what the Adveritists had looked for,—a final winding up of all sublunary things, and the ushering-in ef a new era. Frownr thieves are committing their ‘depradation imvarious parts of the town. One yard of King-st., was despoited of some of tts chviéést plants the other night. : A pretty and well-dressed young lady, after looking at séveral pairs of lavender- colored gloves at Mac’s lately; shocked Stewart by asking himt whieh pair he thought the lavenderest: wanted, awd for which the highest mar- ket rates will be paid by W. G. Hew- ~ gon. Iz is proposed to run a cable across the Americar Falls, at Niagara, and sus- pend a car front it, from which one may be lowered perpendicularly up and down directly in front of the middle of the cat- avact, and close to it. Tre L. O. L., No 272, was disdusted on Saturday last; by having withix their ranks, that ‘‘scalawag,” with a borrowed regalia. He is not a member of the or- der at Oakville, nor anywhere else as to that matter,—nor could he be, until he has a better name er standing. Mr. Cuas. B. Dortann, dentist at Orangeville, is spending this week at the office of Mr. J. Y, Dorland of this town. Charles has many friends at Oakville, who would be anxious to Have him re- main here. Tur Twentieth Battalién will go to Toronto in the fall te put a the annual twelve days’ drill. Co. No 1, Gaikville, €apt. R. B. Albertson, will commence to brighten ap. SarLors are reported scarce at Detroit, and at a meeting on Monday they deter- “mined te put wages up to $1.25 a day— just as soon as shippers pay 20 om wheat to Buffalo. Rev. JosupH Winp, D. D., pastor of the Union Congregational Church, Brooklyn, N. Y., is rusticating for three months at his fine farm near Bronte. The doctor will remain until the 15th of Septembér, when he will leave for Brooklyn to perform his duties. A sarpnr of considerable experience ounce said, that one out of twenty of his best customers always refuse to be pow- dered after a shave. Now is it not time to let up on’ the cry against the ladies who use the same toilet article and for about the same purpose that gentlemen do, namely, to keep their faces fronY chapping, or to seften the skin after bathing. TRAVELLERS, tourists, and others who’ are changing their diet and water fre- quently, should always have a supply of Dr. Fowler’s Extract of Wild Strawberry with them. Itis the great specific for stimmer complaints, and, by its low price, is placed within the reach of all. By its timely use the serious results of dysentery and asiatic cholera may be averted, and itis an admirable curative agent iu sour stomach, colic, cramps, sea-siccness, vomiting, and other irrita- tions of the stomach and bewels. The extract exhibits its most efficacious, spe- cific, and salutary effect upon children, who are prone to suffer when teething. Celic, diarrhea, and other fluxes of the Bowels yield to its influence at oitce. Harvest Guroves—a large stock and prime article; at J. A. Williams’. Tue old maxim that ‘man proposes” is contradicted by certain spimsters, who only wish they did: Hats, caps and gents’ underwear— specially a splendid 32-cent undershirt at John A. Williams. Murrow is agitating the question of purchasing a steam fire engine, frem the Chatham machine works. Mrs. W. Warr, of Brantford, is on a short visit with parents, Mr. and Mrs. BR. Balmer, and many friends of this town. ~ Montany catile fairs have proven to be small potatoes at several points along the G. T., and no wonder, the farmers are waiting patiently for the ““N, P.” Toronro has decided to get a gold chain for Mayor Beaty, to wear on state occasions ; and now, why shouldnt the Conservatives off Oakville buy a new Rogers’ jack-knife for W. C. Beaty? ANoTHER ‘excursion boat” came blow- ing into our barbor on Sunday last, — with all the boldness imaginable. Is there no law to prevent this thing, or public feeling to frown it down ? OaxvinLE time should be set at 2 min- utés faster than Toronto; 4 than Butfa- lo ; 24 than New York ; 25 than Albany, and 26 than Montreal ; and henee 18 12 minutes slower than Detroit, and 31 than Chicago. A young man may do a great many. foolish things; but he will never wear a pair of white pantaloons to a picnic but onee. He will never forget the large amount of fun he didn’t have on the first oecasion. PurorzE often complain of hard times from a mere natural tendency to growl, but an Oakville darkey, the other day, said: ‘‘Nebber seed sich times since 1 deen born. Work all day and steal all night, and blessed if I hardly make a livin’.” Mr. Jas. Hagmuron, who for many years carried on @ successful furniture business in Guelph, committed suicide ubout eleven a. m. of the 14th, by hang- ing himself with arope attached to the sill of a window in his bed-room. Yr semms to be hich time that those terested in the Trafalear Agricultural Show had their lists in the way of prepa- ration for thie fall exhibition. The See- retary is waiting patiently upon the movements of those who should try and | tnake it a success, Vorsrs’ Lists will preve valuable to business men hereafter. The law now requires the post office address of every elector to be given on the Voters’ List, as well as to have the letter J opposite the namie of every one qualified to act as a juryman. jeeePrnsonsvhavinsemeli—articledtoson by mail will be. glad to know that the parcel post rates have been reduced to six cents for four ounces and under, and six conts for every additional four ounces. Parcels must not weigh more than five pounds and must be nzarked “‘By Parcel Post.” | 1 Ewox church choir, Dundas, has been dissolved: Phe elders ‘thought the lads an’ lassies should sit deon im front o’ the minister and whaut the elders could watch them,” but the young folks re- belled- and now the congregation has sone bacx to the eld precentor style and the music of the old masters. Yuuirain-steru: on Friday, though quite severe at this place; and of but short duration, did but comparatively little more damage; than denuding quite a number of fruit trees around town of their foliage, and their fruit. With our happy escape, other localities to the west, are to be reported as having suf- fered severely. The storm appears to have beea general, and the mrost severe in the neighborhood of Sarnia. Wen that scalawag goes to Hamilton, ! and assures the merchants that his ama- teur handbill apology for a newspaper has a larger circulation than all the other of the county cf Halton combined, and under such false pretence obtains a few dollars’ worth of advertise- ments, paid i advance,—can an honor- able merchant of this town patronize /such a fraud any longer, when he lends | himself by sueh an act to divert the trade away ftom Oakville? Answer this ‘conundrum, gentlemen ! IANeETS er Aw Indian, the other day, was at the Hamilton market trying to sell baskets, but was ordered off and told that if he did net cease he would be fined. The Indian looked astonished when told that he could not sell his few baskets, and said, ‘Me Onondaga Indian. My fatner own all the woods, waters and hunting grounds round here, and now you pale face say can’t sell no baskets: Ugh, white man mighty mean. Suppose no sell berries, eh?’ The policeman said he could not unless by permission of the Council. Then the Indian drew him- self up, Shouldered his baskets, and re- plied, ‘‘Ugh, me good Indian, go where. ye no fool me. No Indian, no baskets.” Ow Thursday afternoon, 10th, at the raising of a large barn on the farm of Mr. Ninian Lindsay, near Georgetown, Thomas Henderson, son of Mr. Alex. Henderson, while running up one of the plates it slipped, causing him to fall a distance of nearly thirty feet, striking upon his head and shoulders. He was insensible for some time. Dr. Starr was sent for, and remained with hina most of the night, endeavoring to alleviate his sufferings. ‘Some hopes of his recovery ‘are now entertained: i | elephants, the @amels, ‘ seum and menagerie.

The Hartford Vimes givas a good idea of it, the streets along which the procession was expesied to pass were filled with men, women and ehildren, the windows were tilled with ladies, the steps of the churches aud stores thronged. .Soon after. 9 the music of the band filled the gir, and the huge golden chariot came in sight. The long line of animal wagons, fresh and mew, with gorgeous banners floating on top, the monster orchestrion and the steam caliope, and the car of Neptune, were interspersed with fancy wagons drawn by mites of horses, the beautiful stallions, a wag- on drawn by a pair of elxs, the monster black dromedaries, zebras and other auimats, making a procession nearly amile long. This immense exhibition may be said to be divided into two parts, the museum and elreus, and each is larger that any of its compeers. The museum contains the largest collection of animals outside the Loudon Zoo, while the circus js far ahead of anything of the kind ever seen in this country or in Hurope. fhe first two tects are taken up with the inu- The latter includes ten elephants, of all sizes, including two baby ele- phants, that make a tremendous crying and roaring when their comrades are away in the grand entree.

Not the least attractive part of the performance was the appearance of Mr. P. 1. Sarnum himself, and his brief but witty speech. | Dt BD.
