The yearly meeting of the Disciple
Church of this District was held at
Black Creek on Sunday. The attendance
was very large we are told. The meet

itable one There were quite a number
of rough characters also In attendance,
who acted In a most disgraceful manner,
lighting with clubs, etc. AVe do not
know that the meeting was interrupted
by these characters, but they kept up a
row on the outskirts'. The meeting will
be held next year in .Millersburg.

The potato bugs are getting almost ns
bad as were the frogs in Egypt. They
march, along our pavements' in regi
ments, crawl up the sides of the houses
and fences to take obserratiohs,-an'd ai
most'eome hp Into the kneading troughs.
Having demolished the potato crop they
have commenced work on the tomatoes,
and are spoiling the calculations of
many a housewife. They hunt the ripe
tomatoes, "eat into the 'inside and die.
Whether the nature of the fruit does
not agree with them or the quantity
kills them, is a question for scientists'.
One tiling is certain; nobody cares to
eat the tomato after they have had a
meal out of it.
A Sensation in Hayesville.
Quite a sensation was created In
Hayesville on- Wednesday evening of
week before last. A. -wedding party of
some fifty or sixty were poisoned in
some mysterious way, and thirty-two
of the party got deathly sick for sever
al hours. The doctors had a lively time
in running from house to house during
the night. All recovered however.
How the thing1 occurred in still a mys
tery, but It Is supposed thatsome tricky
person put something into, one. of the
dishes. It.was on the. occasion of the
marriage of Rev. A. C. Christ and Miss
Lavina "Pocock. The ceremony was
performed in the Presbyterian church
.by the Rev. Dr. Diefendorf, after which
the party of some sixty or seventy in
vited guests retired to the house of the
bride's mother where they partook of a
fine supper, after which the bride and
groom went to Ashland and left on the
westward bound train for a short bri
dal tour. They got, very sick on the
way, and were obliged to stop at Mans
field or some other point. Among those
who" remained at home a violent retch
ing was carried on during the night
and many of them thought that only in
death they could find relief. The pois
on turned out to be a vigorous emetic
and in no case did it prove fatalt
The Institute held here by the Teach
ers of Holmes County, was a magnifi
cent success, with very few exceptions
the members testify to their unbounded
satisfaction, with the manner of con
ducting, and, the instructions given
The instructors present were Prof. Kirk-
wood, well-known here, and Prof.
Ridge, of Cincinnati. Both these gen
tlemen are experienced and well versed
in the ways of conducting Institutes.
Prof.Kirkwood by his courteous man
ner, and kindly interest inspired the re
spect and love of every teacher present.
While' the systematic style of his in
struction carried with it conviction, and
never failed to cause a great light to
spring up in the darkness of the Teach
er's brain . Prof. Ridge the whole-soul
ed, jovial Professor of Elocution, who
neTcr failed to seize an opportunity for
gladdening the teachers' hearts, by tell
ing a funny story, and seemed to un
derstand and recognize just what was
wanted by the District School teachers
and applied himself assiduously to ob
viating the difficulties In the way of
good reading, which it seems ever will
rise to worry the poor teacher's brain,
he succeeded to the satisfaction of all.
And when he made us laugh till our
sides ached, we forgave him knowing it
was for our own good. May his shad
ow never grow less. Brother Andy
discoursed to us eloquently, and gave
us excellent instruction on the subject
of vocal culture. He is a man with
music in his soul, whom Shakespeare
would have trusted. And those re
unions the memory of which will dwell
jvith the Holmes county teachers aslong
as life shall be to them, they were grand
glorious and peculiar. May their day
come soon again. Miss Purdy was the
happy recipient of ' a prize for being the
best speller present. While Andy ,whot
with bis music, neglects not other things
took the second prize. On the whole lt
must be considered the best Institute
ever held in Millersburg, and will no
doubt constitute much to the educational
interests of "our county. A Membeie.
The New Railroad Question.
In our last issue we stated that apeti-
tlon had been presented to the Trustees
of Hardy township asking them to call
an election on the question of the pro
posed Lake Erie, Woostcr . Muskingum
Valley Boail, under the Kailroad L,aw,
nassed br the last Legislature. And in
order that all may get a better under
standing of the workings of this law.
we give a few statements as we under
Upon petition of One Hundred tax
paying electors of a township the Trus
tees of that township shall call an elec
tion to be held at the usual place of vo
ting, and after due notice the election
shall be held, and if two-thirds of the
electors of the township voting at that
election shall vote "Kallroad es,'
then the Trustees shall issue the bond
of the township for the amount asked
in the petition, provided the same is not
more than five per cent, of the total
taxable wealth of the township, for the
purpose of paying for the construction
of a railroad through that township.
The bonds are delivered to the Treas
urer of State, whose duty it is to record
and carefully keep the same and pay
them out only on the orderof theTrus
tees and certificate of the Chief Engin
eer of the road, that work to the amount
named in the order has been done on
the road reserving always fifteen per
cent, to be paid on the completion of
the contract. If, for any 'reasont!i
road Is not constructed, the bonds are
returned to the'Trustees and destroyed!
Kowto Illustrate. Suppose that $30,-
000 shall be, appropriated to secure'thelr
new line of road in Hardy township. If
the people so decide the question, the
bonds will be Issued for that amount
and will run from ten' to twenty' years,
$3,000 ol the amount being payabli
every year, commencing ten years from
this time or in 18S2,and closing in 1892,
or twenty years from this time. The
annual interest on this $30,000, at 8 per
cent., will be $2 ,400 per year for the ten
years, or until the first payment ot
3,000 is made, when the yearly interest
will diminish as the, debt is reduced by
each yearly payment of principal.
The tax for tlilaj yearly payment of
interest Is what the people will have to
meet for the next ten years, and the
levy for that purpose will be four mills
the dollar or four dollars on the
thousand. For example: If A owns a
and stock, the total value of which
stands on the duplicate at $5,000, his tax
for the railroad will be $8 per year for
the first two or three years, or until tlie
value of the property in the township
had so increased that a four mill tax will
raise more than will be required, anil
this will be the case as soon as the road
shall be completed, as that will then be
put on the duplicate and help to payjor
itseii as wen aspay its snare oi auomeri
taxes. In three years, or In 1875, the
rate Could be reduced to three dollars

doubt doubt whether it has. ever felt

ever betn, filled with love to God., And
then despair whispers, "all your efforts
are In vain ;" and we wander again fn

heart is not content. The heart whorc
In that heavenly light'has oucc'slione',
cannot love uic uarKness, anu it prays
again forthe old light, for the old peace.
It feels avoid which earth cannot fill, a
craving which earth icauuot "satisfy.
Though 'we may assume gaycty, we are
troubled with the remembrance of past
happiness, and dread of the coming fu
ture; and despair wraps itself 'still clo
ser around us. Oh! well it is, if it
brings us again to the throne of grace;
if it makes us realize how little, how
impotent we are without our God to
aid us. Yes; If it does this, it Is well
for us that God for awhile hath hidden
his face behind the clouds. Then let not
trials and sorrows make, thee despair.

be erected in the Central Park in mem-

Howe, Jr., was not merely a successful
inventor; 'whose needle machine" more,

also a good citizen and earnest patriot,
who freely gave his money and time,
