LOCAL BREVITIES
-------
Mr. S. S. Lanier and wife, of Birmingham, are visiting Rev. J. M. Banister.

Bill Douglass, “that gray-haired old man says: “they made a right good race, considerin’.”

Squire Whited’s solid, sensible speech, Saturday night, made him friends in Huntsville, right and left.

Mr. Oscar Hundley made strong and able speeches over the county. He has just cause to feel proud of his splendid vote.

Hosts of friends were delighted to see Mr. George Hubert in the city, Monday. He came in to vote the Democratic ticket.

No one of the candidates made a better impression than Dr. Petty. He is a solid, sensible Democrat and will be felt for good, in our Legislative halls.

The dance on the splendid, smooth floor, erected by Mr. Melbourn on Monte Sano, last Thursday night, was highly enjoyed by quite a party of our society folk.

Mr. Oscar Fulgham put in splendid work for the ticket. He likewise worked manfully for the Road Amendment, for which he is entitled to the thanks of all progressive citizens.

Dr. Francisco Rice was received in the cordial way to which he was entitled, wherever he appeared over the county. He is used to the Senate chamber and will be confronted by no superior.

A Tribute of Love
NEW MARKET, ALA., July 26, 1886
Editor Independent:
Another bright crown is worn in Heaven. From earth to the beautiful realms of the bright beyond rests the once beautiful Miss Lucy McCas, who departed this life July 23, 1886.
The deceased resided near Meridianville, Ala., where she had passed the greatest portion of her life. She was a maid of a number of years, one of the most pure and noble of her sex. Her loss is greatly felt. The bereft relatives and friends have the deepest sympathy of a circle of warm friends. May God bless her sorrowing sisters. May they all meet in Heaven, an unbroken family. The pure, white brow and sparkling eye of Miss Lucy are long to be remembered by those who mourn the absence of the pure, sweet one who has goes to God and lives to die no more. S.
