Fire in Nashville. On Monday
evening a fire ..broke out In Xashvllle
in this county which consumed the old
hotel building, a grocery store, , and the
dry gorids'stbre' 0f J. Everly. The fire
originated between the old hotel and
theadacent building used as a grocery
stand. It Is supposed that matches had
rri some unaccountable way got into
the space between the two buildings, as
a box or two of them had been found
there' some time age and taken out.
Five families who were living In the
old hotel are now houseless. We did
not learn as to the amount of Insur
ance, if any.
Messrs. Editors: It is strange that
those' owning property on Main street,
and adjacent thereto,- have not com
plained long ere this of the" rlooiis con
duct which has taken place frequently
of late In MUlersbargh. The safety of
property and the well being of our cit
izens demand an efficient Marshal at

when we are to choose a guardian of
this kind, I beg leave to suggest that

a man that will fearlessly discharge the
duties assigned to him. A Citizen.
The Temperance Movement. All
praise be to the ladies of Millersburg
for their, "unceasing labors in the tem
perance cause. Day after day they
meet for prajer, and then take np their
task of visiting the remaining saloon's
andhold prayer meetings in front of
tlioie whose owners will not
let them enter. On Tuesday John
Korns surrendered, and carried out his
liquors and poured them into the gut
ter in the presence of a large crowd,
and amid the ringing of bells and gen
eral rejoicing. Thus another good days
work was done. .That evening all the
business bouses closed at dusk, and a
large assembly met In the Methodist
church for thankszivine and praise for
what the Lord has already done lor us,
In checking the flow of liquid, poison,
The meeting was largely attended and
was very spirited.
The meeting was addressed by Rev
Badgley D.S. Uhl, Esq., Mr. BIdell
of -Cincinnati, Bev. A. D. McCarrcl, of
Pennsylvania, and two or three others.
These speakers were listened to with
great interest. Mr. Ulil, in referring to
what some of the papers of the, St-if
said In relation to him after making
that speech in favor of temperance a
week or two ago, said he would by far
rather be a sober man In the nrivatR
ranks than have a drunken seat In Con
zress. The meeting was a elorieus one
the house was crowded to Its utmost ca
pacity. It was a time for Tliankszlv

good deal of care had been taken in or
der to get up and arrange the costumes
as they were worn in the days when our
fathers and mothers were young. The
suits, with scarcely an exception, were
those worn from twenty-five to seventy-
five years ago. The styles of bonnets
and Jiats of fifty years ago were quite
remarkable. One bonnet in particular
was quite a curiosity". It was about the
sizejof a'coal bucket, resembling that
article somewhat In shape, and was
made of the finest of fur. It Is the
property of Mrs. Ann Larwill, of
Tfooster, and Is sixty years old. A fine
leghorn hat about three feet across, was
worn by ilr3. John Larwill, of Weoster,
over fifty years ago. Another straw
bonnet, owned by the .same lady, was
also over fifty years old. Coats we're
worn' that' were made sixty-five, sixty-
one, sixty and forty years since. These
were all remarkably well preserved
and looked as though made but a year
or two since. The ladies were very for
tunate In obtaining suits that carried
tha older people back to the days of
their youth. A few Continental stilts
were represented, as was also Mary
Queen of Scotts. One lady appeared in
the modest and appropriate costume of
a Quaker lady. Other characters were
represented to perfection. Cousin Ben
ben, the' Green Mouatain' boy, in his
Yankee costume, and peculiar manners,
was quite a contrast to the rest of the
performers. Many of the old tunes
were sung with a good deal nf energy
and spirit. Tears started in the eyes of
many of the old people as the strains of
some favorite old songs burst once more
upon their ears,, carrrins them back to
days of l'Auid lang Syne." A num
ber of solos, duetts, qnartetts,c., were
interspersed throughout the programme
which gave -variety to the entertain
meat. The piano solos rendered by
Miss Dora I,isle. were well received,
The guitar solo by Mr. Smith, was en
joyed, by all. Some of the old time
singing masters who were present were
much pleased with the manner of con
ducting the concert. The music through
out was well rendered, the costumes
were faithful representations of the
'olden time," and the concert on the
whole was an enjoyable one. The pro
ceeds amounted to $90.00.

Valuable Suggestions. Too low an
estimate is apt to be set on the domestic
.value of newspapers. After reading
them, and putting ourselves, through
their agency, iu mental correspondence
with the world, they are thrown aside
and forgotten. But to suppose their
uselulness bounded by their news col
umns and the waste-bag is a thriftless
In the first place, there are the house
hold recipes, to be found in stray cor
ners, often excellent, and deserving a
refuge on the fly-leaf of the familv
coek-book. Then come tlie pretty
verses, the strange and droll stories,
the brief biographies aud reminiscences
which, pasted in a scrap-book, are a
source of never-ending pleasure, not
only to those who do not care for rich
er intellectual food, but to those who
have only ouu minutes lor reading.
Notwithstanding the soulbs jocular
journalists have penned on the use-of
newspapers lor ueuciotntng;, we Know
from experience that these are not to
be despised. They may not be as com
fortable as your blankets, but certalnly
they keep out the cold. Two thickness
es ef paper are better than a pair of
blankets, and in the case of persons
who dislike the weight of many bed
clothes, they are Invaluable. A spread
made of a double layer of papers be
tween a covering of calico or chintz, is
desirable in every household. The pa
pers should be tacked together with
thread, and also basted to the covering
to keep them from slipping. An ob
jectlon has been made on account of
the rustling, out it sou papers be cho

As a protection to plants against cold,
both in and outof doors, nothing Is bet

over night at a window between pots
and glass, the flowers will not only not
ue irozen, nut win not even get chilled.
