jrtiscment in next week's
yunday School Cbnvention was
partial success the notice of the
ention was too short however for
members to be present the mana
gers seemed satisfied withy the work
accomplished. Rev. Mr. Kingsland
was president and J. W. Goulding was
secretary of the convention.
The election passed off very quietly
in Princeton no fighting or quarreling,
ao drunkennessnot even the sign of
drunkenness was visible. The only
jitter feeling created during the day,
was caused by some'so called "Tem
perance man" or men, starting the ru
mor that F. M. Campbell, the Repub
lican nominee for Treasurer, was furn
ishing- whiskey with which to buytime
votes. The story was originated by
some of Mr. Campbells enemies to work
on the prejudices of tne Temperance
folks but the little game did not work.
Mr. Campbell gained votes instead of
loosing, for no one who knew Mr.
would believe the story, ex
cept a tew "fanatical" individuals who
wpuld believe almost anything. M. V.
B. Cater's friends worked hard, but not
to much pnrpose, for when the vote
was counted Campbell stood 36 ahead.
The bitterest fight was between Ross
and Barker, for School Superintendent.
Barker came out 21 ahead. In Green
bush the main fight was over the com
missioner there were three candidates
Jesmer, Huggins and Scott in the field,
aud Jesmer was the lucky man with 6
votes to spare. Campbell received 11
aud Barker 35 majority at this place*
In^Milo the main fight was on
Treasurer it was supposed by almost
every one that this town would go for
Cater but Frank Campbeel had heaps
of friends there as well as everywhere
else, and Cater only got 7 votes. We
ean not get the returns exactly, until
the vote is officially canvassed by the
Auditor and his assistants. The com
plete returns will appear in next
week's UNION as near as we can judge

i rincetou, October. 19, 1877.
Tne inventions and impro\ jinents
that have been made duving the pres
ent century, in this couniry as well as
in all parts of the world, will remain
for all time a marked epoch in the
world's history, I Nearly all of the in
ventions and important improvements
that now save the labor of millions of
hands,that now intakes a journey around
the world a mere pleasure trip, that
annihilates spaoe, that records on its
mirror the events of every-day life, are
almost wholly the result of human in
tellect of the nineteenth century.
When we look back upon what has
been accomplished, we sisire in amaze
ment a.t the rapid and gigantic strides
taken in directions
enlighten benefitall the world
^.ot only have great agents been dis
covered or better utilized, but tne mi
nor and indispensable details of every
day life have simplified, so that our
mthersers.our wives, our sisters and our
daughters are not bound to that house
hold slavery that made them carry the
real burdens of domestic life. Now
scarcely a day passes but some new
and valuble invention is added to the
endless list of articles to lighten the
labor of the household.
So far, there hat been no invention
that has supplied so great a want in
every family as the sewing machine.
With the introduction of this genuine
labor-saving apparatuts, one of the
greatest drudges of the house-hold has
been done away, and the work of fur
nishing the family garments, with its
tireless needle has become a pleasure
and a pastime.
It would be useless to attempt to
enumerate the many improvements
that have been made in sewing ma
chines, but among the countless ma
kers and styles, none have stood the
test of public trial and criticism better
or even as well as the Victor Sewing
Machine, now in use in every clime, at
home and abroad. Beilg the original
pioneer from the very start, under the
name of the Finkleand Lyon, the man
ufactures have kept pace with the
march of improvement, and have made
such alterations and adjustments as
and the severest trials have shown
to be for the best, until now it stands
the acme of excellence, in finish, dur
ability aud all that makes a sewing ma
chine desirable. The manufacturers*
to meet the times, have placed their
machine within the reach of every fam
ily of whatever condition in life, thus
benefiting the millions of this day and
generation as well as future generations
to come. See hansome advertisement
which appeares in our columns today,
The colonels and judges have come
to town. The rotunda of the Ebbitt
House reverberates with the din of
clinking glasses. Knots of bar-room
statesmen from points of vantage com
manding the bar doors wrestle in wor
dy wrangle over the president's policy
what the ''people really want, by
God,sah!" The hotel bell-boy flies
around with unwonted alacrity, in
hope of the illusive quarter the be
guiling hackman charges up on all who
even look across the avenue, shonting
out "Here's your old driver, colonel!"
and drives the annoyed "colonel" iuto
a street-car, for the fare of which he
has borrowed a nickle from the "judge"
the vigilant barber, soapy, scented, and
smiling,.hails each unshaven lace that
passes "Walk right in colonel you're
next." The pavement in front of
Willard's in the morning resembles a
parterre of gay flowers. Clusters of
"colonels," hedges of "judges" fringe
the sidewalk with flaming countenan
ces, like sunflowers. Th buds on
their Bardolphian noses, swell to blos
som by the sprees of the nights, rivaj
the bontonnieres of those lovely and
geraniums, the treasury clerks
who, rising from their Sevres vases,
called boarding-houses, wend their
way to their daily toil, Spots of rash
tnis crimson guests, pour their pinky
blossoms over the judicial physiogno
my of the "judges," and the air is la
den with the seductive oders of the
aistillery. Well may this be called a
i-ay season iii Washington. It is With
mournful regret we chronicle their ac
cession to office, for then we lose them.
True, more may come a vast army is
always ready to rush in the breach,
but it requires months of tipplidg and
hotel letter-writing to ripen and color
them, "Here goes colonel!" We
would never be without a colonel in
our button-hole or a judge in our hat,
if we could help it. Washington Cap
