Conspicuous by its absence was the ringing of the bells which was due to fall on us promptly at 12 o’clock Sunday night in celebration of the death of the old year and the berth of the new, but for some unaccountable reason the celebration did not come off. It is the first time in many years that Farmerville has missed being treated to the midnight serenade on the night before new year, probably the first time since the town could first boast of a bell to ring. We have no doubt that this young New Year feels vey much slighted by this gross neglect.
