They fairly loaded us down witli souvenirs of value, and their good cheer. They seemed to be out for a good time socially rather than to boost their business and the Clark County Fair which came up the next day af ter they wero here. The boys didn't stay long and it was a moment of regret when they left, taking with them their Royal Scotch Highlander's Band, which, as an intermission of the excellent playing of our own Concert Band, was much en joyed, as well as the agreeable mingling with the affable boost ers. The relationship between Clay City and Winchester has thus been tightened up one more link, account their coming to see us. Wo are often down to Winches ter, while they are seldom up to see us. We can only get better acquainted by their coming more our way, and our latch string still hangs out with the string considerably stretched because of their visit to us Tuesday. The Clearance Sale.
