Btjtlek, April 9. Lewis Patterson, a
prominent and wealthy farmer living near
Centerville, this county, was robbed last
night by three masked men. There was no
body in the house with him at the time but
his mother, 80 years old. She heard a noise
and called to him. He turned toward the
window and saw three men, who called
to him to comer out. Upon refusing thej;
burst in the door, and as the first man en
tered Patterson felled him with a poker.
The others overpowered him, however, and
dragging him barefooted to the barn threat
ened to hang him if he refused to tell them
where he kept his gold. When be declared ho
had none they placed the rope aroundhls neck,
but as he still persisted that he had no money
they conclnded to torture him by roastinp his
feet at the fire in the house. He was taken
back to the house and his feet and face burned.
They then searched the house, and, after
securing S43 In money and Mr. Patterson's cold
watch, departed, declaring that if he moved
until they were gone one-half hour he would
he shot dead. There is no positive clew to the
desperadoes, but every effort will be made to

THE SAME OLD STORY.
A Wealthy Farmer $4,000 Out In a Little
Game of Bunko.
Koeeistowst, April a In the latter part of
July, 1SSS. Jacob B. Reiff, a retired wealthy
farmer, at Center Square, this county, was
fleeced out of 510,000 worth of bonds by a pair
of bunko sharpers who had been negotiating
with him for a week before, ostensibly with a
new to purchasing a farm in the neighborhood.
The securities were principally certificates of
the Cincinnati Southern Railroad, and were
-north something less than their face value.
Every effort was made to gain a clew to the
swindlers, but without success. About eight
weeks ago farmer Reiff received a call from a
well-dressed stranger, who, after exacting
every promise of secresy, represented to Reiff
that he was a New York detective and could
restore the bonds. He said a broker of bis
acquaintance had bought them of the sharpers
and was afraid to sell them lest be be arrested
lor the swindle.
The price asked for the return of the stolen
bonds was $S,O0tt. Mr. Reiff declined to pay
any such somas this. Several consultations
ere held in the next few weeks and finally it
was decided that if the farmer would pay
51,000. ask no questions and promise to make
no effort to secure the arrest of the persons
who had swindled him, the bonds would be re
stored. Mr. ReirT counsel, it has been ascer
tained, went to Nw York recently with 54,000
of farmer ReiiTs mqney in his pocket, met the
self-stjled detectives, signed the agreement of
secrecy referred to and returned with the
bonds, which are now safe in Kcilf s possession.

1SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.
ZaxeSVUXE. O., April 9. The route of the
Coshocton and Southern Railroad through the
city has been a question of some anxiety to the
residents of this city, but it has been solved by
the company. A levee will be built down the
river bank which will place the road above
Inch water mark. The building of the levee
will open for settlement a large tract of land
which nas been too low for occupancy, and it
is thought the company will derive a bonus
from the owners of the land thus benefited. In
addition to a free right of way.
The road is an extension of the Cleveland and
Canton, which is controlled by Colonel Blood,
of Boston, and Is being built to connect with
the coal roaos entering this city.

bracing air is lost, the body is liable to be over
come by debility or some serious disease. The
remarkable success achieved by Hood's Sarsa
parilla, and the many words of praise it has re
ceived, make it worthy jour confidence. We
ask you to give this medicine a trial. We are
sure it will do you good.
"We have used Hood's Sarsaparilla for sev
eral years, and feel proud to recommend it as
an excellent spring medicine or to be used at all
times as a blosd purifier. For children as well

good health ever since we began giving it to

This Time It Is Chocolate.
We take pleasure in announcing
that we have secured the sole
agency in Pittsburg for the world
famous "Chocolat Menier," which
has been before the public since
1828. It is undoubtedly the finest
chocolate manufactured. The Me
nier Company own and control ex
tensive cocoa plantations, operate
an enormous sugar refinery near
Paris, and employ 3,000 skilled
laborers at their factory, This
chocolate received the highest pos
sible award (the Grand Prix) at the
Paris Exposition of 1878, besides
four awards at the Centennial. Its
purity is absolute and beyond ques
tion. Its- delicacy and flavor are
without equal, and its merits, both
as a confection and as a nutritious
food, are acknowledged by physi
cians the world over. We propose
to sell "Chocolat Menier" at a
price never approached in Penn-
40c a Pound and 20c 1-2 Pound
