Stuart Rogers, the recitationist and impersonator, gave hJs entertainment in the Court House last Friday evening. The room was two-thirds filled, most of the crowd being students from the Centra-Normal. Mr. Rogers enjoys the reputa tion of being one of the best and most talented recitationists in the country, but on this occaeion he failed to prove himself equal to our own and only J. W. Riley.  W. R. Craven, of Center Valléy, was in town yesterday.  Aaron Hart has been appointed by John B. Hale duputy assessor.  H. S. Dickey can not help from smiling on everyone he meets. It is a boy.  E. H.

The Republicans in Danville will hold a convention on Saturday, May i, ibr the purpose of nominating candidates to be voted for at the town election.  Sixty-three of our citizens visited Green-castle last Tuesday evening and enjoyed the lecture of Bishop Foster. They were all well pleased with tlie visit.  Persons should take advantage of this ñne weather and clean up their front yards and side walks and see if we can't make Danville one of the deanes» towns in tlie state.  In accordance with instructions from the Pension Commissioner, the U. .S. Pension Examining Board will meet every Wednesday at the oflice of Dr. T. V/. Johnson, secretary of said Board.  "Her features are not regular, yet what an attractive face she has!" It is her beautiful hair. Once it v.-as thin, grayish and fading. A few bottles of Parker's H.-!Ír Balsam wrought the transformation. It will do as much for anybody.  Ttie voters ot Danville should see that a good man is nominated for marshal, at the town convention. The condition of our streets and the peace and quietude of the town depends considerably upon the kind of a man we select for marshal.  M. W. Hopkins left last Saturd.iy ior a three weeks visit in Philadelphia, and other eastern cities. He will probably be in Washington a fev* days, and will endeavor to obtain an interview with Grover Cleave-land regarding the situation in Hendricks County.  The Danville Browns bid fair to make the best ball club ever organized in Danville. The members are all naturally good players, and, with propev practice, we expect them to do good work. They have ordered new suits and wiil play their first game on Monday, the 3d day of May, crossing bats with the Greencastle club.  Sim. B. Richmond, of Lizton, has one of the largest and best assortments of car riages and buggies in the county. His goods are of the best work, and his prices are very low. Those who contemplate purchasing a carriage, buggy or phaeton during the season will no doubt find it to their interest to call and examine Mr Richmond's stock.  Mart. Englehart desires i-is to say that that the editorial in last week's Gazette wherein it states that Senator Harrison had promised to recommend the appoint ment of him (Englehart) as postmaster at Danville, is false. He was a candidate for the office, and having been a member of Harrison's regiment, naturally expected his claims to be favorably considered, but at no time did he promise him the appointment.  A number of the Grand Army boys at this place visited Pittsboro last Thursday night and organized a Post in that village, with A. C. Weaver as Post Com., Wm. D. Lewis, S. V. C.; R. T. Dormán; J. V. C., and J. M- Wills, Adj't. Our boys were treated royally by their comrades -of Pittsboro, and enjoyed a good time, the only unpleasant feature of the trip being the bad roads, which caused them to walk for miles, both going and returning home.  A look into the ladies' store on the east side of the public square will readily convince anyone that it is absolutely foolish to think of going away from Danville for your spring goods. The proprietors, the Misses Hunt & Henry are better prepared than ever, this spring, to please their customers. They are experienced óiilliners and dress-makers, and have selected their spring stock with great care. If j'ou want your dress cut and made in the latest style, or your hat or bonnet trimmed just to suit you, give them a call.  James Dempsey, the enterprising merchant of Pittsboro, was in Danville yesterday.  The County Commissioners are in session this week, settling with the Township Trustees.  Uncle Sam Hawkins is able to be out again after wrestling with a pretty severe attack of paralysis.  Lon Emmons, one of Eel River township's "grangers," was circulating among his many friends yesterday.  The commencement exercises of the Lizton schools will take place Saturday night, April 24. There are sixteen speakers on the programme. Danville and Lizton talent will furnish the music.

Glen Cash, John Estep, Willie Parsons, Ray Howell, Ralph Huron, Mate Dill, Frank Taylor, Harry Dooley, Louie Dill, Bertie Nichols, Walter Bennett.  John S. Moore, of Plainfield, recently-purchased of W. P. Ijims, of Terre Haute, the imported Clyde fiorse Scotland Glory. He is a beautiful dapple brown, has a fine inane and tail, good heavy flat bone, and weighs 1,700 pounds. Considering his v/eight, his action is remarkable, moving with as much ease as a trottmg horse. It is said by competent judges that Scotland Glory is undoubtedly the finest draft horse in Hendricks County. Stock men should read the advertisement concerning this iiorse, printed in another column.  Wm. Hardacre, a student in the Normal, died last .Sunday, at the residence of Dudley Branch. He had been in Danville but one week, and in school only two driys. He complained of his head hurting him for several days before he died, but was up moving around and not considered dangerously sick by those who were with him, until Sunday morning. His people were telegraphed the sad news, and two of his brothers arriyed here on the early train Mon^a^morning, and returned with the remaijf|ic tO Lawranceville, 111. The cause of his^-4.^th;,i§-§,up^osfid_to; be congestion otV; he brain.  At a sp.5'jial meeting of the town board on last Friday night, it was decided to iur-nisii forty new street lamps for the town. The lamps agreed upon will cost $9 each delivered and set up ready for use. They burn gasoline, and are arranged so they can be adjusted to burn any number ot hours desired, and the cost of running them wili not exceed the cost of the old ones, which were but little better than no light at all. The agent promises to have the lamps here and in use within ten days-The boar.'! also ordered the sidewalk on Main Sti'cet between Washington and Indiana, >-eplaced at once.  Notice.
