Accident. A few days ago Miss
Tabble Sbaw and Hiss Conrad drove a

hitched in front of Mr. Courtney's res

Furnish cs. with Items. There are
many of our' friends throughout the
county who could furnish us with items
that would be of interest to. the county
at large. We hope that now these
friends will take enough interest in the
county matters to give us any Item that
ought to be looked after. It is almost
impossible for us to know of all these
things. Please assist .us then, when
Refreshing Rains. After a few
weeks of extremely dry weather, which
threatened to burn up vegetation en
tirely, a most welcome rain began to
fall on Saturday morning early, and
continued at Intervals throughout Sat
urday and Sunday. So gently did it
come, that the baked ground took it in
gradually until the earth is now well
watered again, and vegetation has
taken a new start. It is to be hoped
thtf the corn, potate&s, c, will still
bean average crop.

The excitement throughout the conn'
ty concerning the recent developments
in the state ot our county affairs, has In
no way -abated. We had no idea." that
the feeling was so intense, until w
learned it directly from the people in
different parts of the county. They
cannot understand why the commis
sioners allow the present Auditor to
hold his office when found guilty of
such violation of law. They claim
however, and doubtless they are right,
that they cannot remove him until he
Is arrested and charges preferred against
him. The next question is, why don'!
they do that? Have they not eneugli
facts in the matter? Tbey certainly
have. Wc understand that one ef the
Commissioners, Mr. Gelsinger, is in fa.
vor of the removal, and we learn also
that he has said that unless the Com.
missioners would do their duty m the
matter, that be would resign.
As we stated in our last issue suit has
been entered in Columbus against Heed
and Newton for the recovery of the
money. Owing to the fact that Reed's
bond for his last term ot office, could
not be found, if there ever was any, as
it is not recorded, the State held back a
portion of Reed's amount, in order that
attachment might be made, when suit
was entered against him, for the amount
not covered by bond. The figures
showing the full amount due the State
from Reed are as follow, as furnished
us by the Sheriff. During his appoint-.
ment to fill out Weltman's term $2103,'
84. During his first regular term
$6005,23. During the last term, there
being no bond, $8C97,C6, making in all
$10896,08. For the recovery of the first
two amounts, bis bondsmen have been
sued, and for the latter .amount his
property has all been attached. His
warehouse has been under lock and
key, and In the hands of the Sheriff
for several days past. The following
namrd persons are his bondsmen : For
his first term, or rather the time of bis
appointment Geo. Reed, John French,
J. K. Raiff, Lewis Donald, Luellen AI
lison, Willis lioagland, Amos Parsons,
Ira Wells, Geo. B. Orner and Christian
For his first regular term Geo. Reed,
James Liggett, John French, J. S. Nel
son, Thos. Alllson,-John Cary, jr., Ira
Wells, Conrad Schuler, J. E. Flemmlng
and Peter Hammond.
As we have above stated no bond can
be found for Reed's last term, and as a
consequence, his property has been
attached for the above mentioned
The amount sued for recovery from
Newton, Is $3783,34 on first term, and
$11317,74 on second term. Total amount
$10,102,03. Ills bondsmen are as fol
lows: First term, Joseph H. Newton,
G. F. Newton, Jas. A. Estill, Louis
Mayers, Geo. Reed, Leuellen Allison
and Wm. Lisle.
Second term, Joseph II. Newton, G.
F. Newton, Louis Mayers, Geo. Reed
and James A. Estill.
The total amount sued for by the
State lroni both parties, Is $31,998,70,
The above is a sample of the doings
of the model Democracy of Holmes
county. Will the people submit to be
governed longer by such men, or the
men whom they choose to elect? It Is
not any wonder that the remark was
made that Sullivan must and will be
elected; or In other words that It was
necessary that a ring candidate be elec
ted, In order that the "springing"
might be let down gently, or so covered
up that It would not create any suspi
cion. We have nothing personal against
Sullivan, but he is the ring candidate,
chosen and nominated by the ring and
as a consequence, will be voted against
by the "honest voters" of the county.
Of this we shall speak more fully here
after. We are often asked whether criminal
suit had been brought against these
parties. There lias not been as yet,
and in all probability will not be, until
the next term of court when they will
come before the Grand Jury.
Since writing the above we learn that
Reed has given bond for twice the
amount of invoice in his warehouse,
and has been permitted to open .out
aspln, and attend to his business. There
was only about $150 worth of stuff in
the warehouse after the wool belonging
to other parties bad been taken out.
For Congress. At the Democratic
Convention held In Bucyrus last week,
Dr. Cowan, of Ashland, was nominated
for Congress on the 250th ballot. Each
county had its candidate and was
bound to stick to him. On the 250th
ballot, Richland cast her solid vote for
Cowan, thinking that the compliment
would be returned. Berry seeing that
Cowan would be nominated by Wyan
dot casting her vote for Cowan also,
arose and thanked the district for the
honor it had conferred, and his friends
for their support, and withdrew in fa
vor of Cowan. Wyandot then gave
Cowan her vote, which nominated him
by ten of a majority. Dr. Cowan
pledged himself to but one term.
Retribution. Some one has said no
crime is to be excused because of the
lofty place of the splendid genius of the
offender. Great gifts Imply groat re
sponsibilities, and the larger one's light
and opportunity, the more hlcnous his
sin, if he betrays his trust. What wc
are to remember always Is the fact the
disclosure of transgression Is sooner or
later inevitable. There. can be no bur
ial for It so UeeplHai In du'c.time it will
not have a resurrection. The Voice
that tells is somewhere. The strain Is
somewhere. The sore and shame are
somewhere. The avenger is somewhere
The eternal Right is over all. Out of
the darkness and silence; out of the mis
guided zeal of friends; out of the eag
erness of the guilty to seem indifferent
and unconscious; out of the patience
and sufferings of the wronged; out of
the very! emphasis of denial, fortified
by favorable public opinion; out of all
concealmentand subterfuges, will come
eventually the revelation, tho confes
sion. Tho divine order brings it as
sure as the rotten corpse comes to the
surface of the water; as sure as the
subterranean fires In all the earth; as
sure asj -"pnovement of the unlvese
goes 00 jere is no special miracle
In all- nowever singular seems the
disclosure, but an eternal miracle
through ;the righteous and perfect meth
ods of God. It Is one of the Insanities
of the sinner to think that for him, at
least, there may be an Immunity ; that
in his case the infinitely wise and gra
cious constitution of things may be
modified. Bat there is no allowance
made for him, be he prince or peasant.
Just as certainly as sufficient arsenic
kills, so docs guilt finally appear. Just
as sure as the divine law Is violated It
will react on the offender. You can
not get round It, or over it, or behind
It, so that you may escape. You are In
the order of transgression and your
crime shall be revealed.

A Fishing Party.
According to a previous arrangement,
a fishing party was to start early on
the morning of the 4lh, for the lake.

When the rising su was ushering in the
appointed day with its rosy beams, the
stars were driven oue by one from their
accustomed haunts, and all.nature was
made vocal with the songs of birds
this happy band, ten iu number, eager
for the pleasures of the day. After
haying arranged the preliminaries in
such a manner as would best heighten
the joys of the excursion, we took pass
age by couples iu their respective ve
hicles, and bounded over hill and dale
drawn by their proud and prancing
steeds. At ten o'clock and fifteen min
utes we all arrived safely at the same
time, at the lake, as desirous as ever to
try our luck or science, (whichever it
may be) at fishing. Two boats having
been procured, we crowned their beaks
with boquets, unfurled the sails to the
wind aud busily plied the oars. Soon
we past by the piece of woods to the
right and reached the well known shoal
when, lo! we were led to ask for what
went we out? Certainly not to lish.
for only two hooks were to be lound
aud they In the same boat, and to our
greater surprise and mortification, no
bait was prepared by any one. Now
the beautiful colored fish would dart up
playfully on our right and left showing
their scale decked with a thousand
hues from the noonday sun, .knowing
well the jolly fishers had taken the
wrong day to catch them, as they wish
ed to enjoy the Fourth as well as we.
Long wc feasted our eyes until we were
compelled lo think that it was at the
expense of our patience, if not stom-
aches. We resolved to returu to the
shore and get the necessary bait. Dis
appointed we traced backward our
course to the part from which we start
ed. Wearied and hungry we partook
of the retreshments prepared by the
good ladies, thanking them from the
bottom of our hearts for the bountiful
repast. Although spread upou the
ground In the cool shade of a leafy
maple, yet, It could not have tasted bet
ter on the largest table in the richest
dwelling. Never did fowls look better,
even when clothed iu the most gaudy
plumage. Never did cakes and pics
taste so sweet or plukleslsosour. Never
was their such a demand for good cool
draughts from the cup that cheers but
doesnotinebrlatc. Oil, how refreshing.
More delicious than the implicating
beverage that runs down from more
bottles than Hostetters, and sweeter
than honey or the honey comb. It was
surprising also, to see the difference iu
the countenances of all who In our
merry crowd, tried its cleansing vir
tues after riding 'through the clouds of
dust.. Those who, when starting from
home were as white as Myrtle Tablet,
or death could make them, had their
faces washed until they looked like life.
Their Is no color so beautiful as flesh
color, In my estimation, at least, though
I know great minds will differ.
But I am digressing. Well, we wash
ed, ate and felt better able to catch lish,
as I have said that was the purpose lor
which we pame, although not oue had
yet been caught.
With the two hooks and baits we took
our leave from the rural table and re
paired to the waters of the same lake.
As we journeyed down the little hill
aud was Hearing to our boats, a scream
was heard from one of the ladies, so
heart rending that all the other ladies
caught the same tone In its own key, in
so much that the woods rang with the
deafening cries. We stopped. Asked
the cause of the alarm. Breathless with
broken accents she tried to tell us, she
saw a dragon a serpent, a" terrible
snake ! We looked, and true enough,
there it lay a slimy, slippery, ugly,
crawling thing. It took some time be
fore ail could see it as it was so very
small that no two could look at It at
the same time; butaseachgotaglimpsc
at the beast of such unsightly dimen
sions, scream upon scream arose until
the very heavens were filled with the
piercing shrieks. The bravery of ibose
f the masculine gender was equal to
the occasion, and the celerity with
which they dispatched it can well be
expressed In the language of Caesar
Fent'mus,riiZini,t(ciTiius" "We came,
we saw, wc con quered,"
When the excitement had partially
subsided we again set sail iu the former
boats in quest of the El Dorado of the
lake. But the winds arose; the heav
ens became black; the waves grew
rough. We were not permitted to cry
eureka, for not a fish again was found.
We put to shore as swiftly as our oars
would take us for the winds being con-
rary, the sails had to be furled.
As it did not rain we thoughtthe
fates were not auspicious, and soon we
left for our homes, thinking fishing was
a failure. Yet we comforted ourselves
with the little knowledge wc had gain
ed iu reference to the art and feeling
confident we would better know how
to take the preliminary steps at another
"Tell It All"
We have, at last, received a conv of
that most extraordinary work, which
uas excueu so mucn interest anu atten
tion in all sections of the country. We
allude to Mrs. T. B. II. Stenhoure's
new book, entitled, "Tell It All." Two
ears ago the Author published a little
pamphlet 011 Polygamy, which attraot
ed'conslderable attention, and r-ited
quite a sensation among tuo Quints.
The Mormon papers took up the sub
ject, ami aiiuumg ucrtsiveiy to the del
icate reticence, so natural to :t sensa
tive woman, displayed by the Author.
spitefully invited her to "Tell It All."
ilea and i omen of position, in all parts
of the country, who had visited her In
Salt Lake City, urged her to seize the
opportunity, "write a book," and lay
the whole truth before .the world.
Mrs. Stenhouse ultimately consented,
and chose for the title ot lijr mw vol
ume, the words of derision used by her
Mormon opponents. "Tell It All."
In this way, this singular work was
introduced to the world. It is a book
utterly unlike any otlier work on the
subject ever penned before.
In her own fascinating style, she tells
an mat can uo torn 01 mat strango sys
tem, not as a visitor to Utah might re
late it, but with the thrilling eloquence
and pathos of one whose wiioU life lia3

among a class of our own countrymen
and women, much talked of, but little
known, are painted beforo us by this
talented woman, with touching fidelity;
and when the reader lays down the
volume his only regret Is, that he has

called them to this work. The Ameri

spicuous among the nations as a nation

to all its children. Schools aud colleges
may be said to adorn the land,and yet
with all our schools and all our educa

of moral character is found in among
us; how few persons there are who
dare to do right, because it is right,
The crusade has succeeded iu resurrect

and the fearful corruptions brought to
light, reveal the importance of this
work, beiug carried out in all its In
tensity. The work of educating the
people morally, Implies, or supposes
the presence of moral character. In a
small aud feeble state of development

until the power necessary lor this great
reform shall rise in all its moral majes
ty, aud sweep Intemperance from our
land. The master-stroke of the whis
ky ring, in its dying agonies.Js seen In
the "License Chuiso" of the New Con
stitution. The intelligent christian
people of the State of Ohlo.are besought
by the old "Giant Despair," to vote for
the license clause, in the adoption of
the New Constitution of the Stale oil
the 1 Sth of August. This Constitution
about to be submitted to the people for
their adoption, or rejection, Is, If adop
ted, to be cursed with the leprosy of
Intemperance. Nay; worse than this.
We the sober, thinking people are po
litely told that a license clause will reg
ulate the traffic In intoxicating drinks,
This view of the case recognizes the
morality of the traffic, and only seeks
to regulate it. A little more of this
type of morality would enable us to
see the necessity to license, and thus
protect by law, horse thieves, highway
robbers and murderers. ' Why not? This
is the morality engendered by the whis
ky traffic, and sought to be perpetuated
by it, and for it. This is the morality
of the nineteenth century, the smiling,
fawning morality sought to be deified
by the people, sought to be protected by
the State, seeking the sanction, and the
protection of law for the nextrtwenty
The crusade has brought the liquor
traffic to the light, aud the earnest con
viction of Its sinfulness,. as seen by the
crusaders, appears lo be shared by the
fraternity. Confidence is shaken in its
self-protecting power, hence It is to re
ceive the sanction of law. It is to be
made respectable by the popular vote of
the people. The traffic in liquor is to
be made as morally right, and as re
spectable as a provision store, or any
legitimate business whatever. This
state of things is a felt necessity in the
traffic, and so thoroughly Is this con
viction shared by the friends of the ar
dent, that the New Constitution Is
strongly impregnated with this senti
ment. This Is the morality of the law
makers. Where do the people stand
upon this question? We have said,
that the work of the hour Is to educate
the people morally. Will it not require
moral training to get the people above
the party lines of the past, and raise
them intellectually and morally, where
they can look at this subject from the
moral stand point. To the friends of
temperance we say, gird ou the armor,
the contest will be fearful, tho battle
will rage all along the lines, and a close
hand to. hand encounter is Imminent.
The 18th of August will be the Gettys
burg of the war. Let tis hurl back
the broken legions of tho whisky ring
with a-violence on that day which shall
be felt through all the regions of de
spair, aud forever break the power ot
the whisky ring, and liberate the slaves
of intemperance everywhere. This
moral training cannot be performed by
the school teacher; it cannot be done
even in the churches of the land. Do
we ask where shall we labor? Go into
the lanes and streets of your towns,
and cities, aud carry the Gospel of
temperance to the people. The people
need instruction upon tills subject ; they
are willing to hear, they wish to un
derstand the merits of the pending
question: License or Prohibition. Tell
the people, that the license law has been
tried and found wanting. Tell the peo
ple, that under the license law the con
sumption of beer in the United States
increased from 3,500,000 barrels in 1864
to 8,000,000 barrels in 1872. Tell them
that in Massachusetts when under the
Prohibition law, the revenue decreased
rapidly,but in 18C7, when license was
restored the internal revenue Increased
from $9,000 to $22,000 in a single month.
Tell them that old Virginia has a license
law, and that in the Old Dominion,
such is the respectability of the traffic,
protected as it is by law that they ex
pend $19,000,000 for whisky yearly, but
they are too poor to pay the Interest on
their State debt. But then they arc
A noble Spartan had fallen iu the de
fence of his country, leaving his wid
ow with two small boys, who were look
ing to her for support. The mother
shared in the bravery of her fallen
chieftain. She took her children to the
General of the army and offered her
services in the place of her fallen lord.
The General beheld with a Spartan's
pride the devotion of the mother to her
country, and, said he, Madam take back
your boys to your home,and train them
in the love of their con u try and in a
few years two brave men will stand
prepared to revenge the death of their
father. Iu this way, Madam, you can
best servo the interest of your country.
To tho wives, mothers and daughters
of the crusade, wo say, train your hus
bands, sons and brothers to vote for
Prohibition on the lSth of August.
Remember the moral power at your
command; rcmembnr that while you
a women, are denied the vote, you have
It In your power to shape the destinies
of your country by directing tho voto
of husband, son and brother for the
complete overthrow of Intemperance
in the State of Ohio, and through the

traffic of intoxicating drinks, and In the
defeat of tho whisky party you will not

TO A PICTURE OF MEDORA.
BY NILE GUILFORD.
Watchina; for thy love, Jledora,
Oh 1 so eagerly jon wait;
By the sea side, still yon linger.
Though the honrs are dark and late.
How each echo falls, Medora,
Plainly on thy eager ear.
Till hope delusion whispers,
"Waiting ene, thy lore is near."
There's a look so yearning, tender.
In thy earnest speaking eyes.
Telling all the lover's Story
Fain and pleasure, smiles and sighs?
For we know there's anguish bitter.
In the deeper passions of th soul;
Cren joyous lore rires sorrow,
To the hearts in his control.
Sadness on tby face, Medora,
Not the agony or woe.
But calm grief that there Is written,
. Settled on thy brow, doth show
Hope from thee almost departed ; -?
Dimly shines her cheering light;
For thou hast watched for Eis coming.
Vainly, vainly, day and night.
AU around is dark, Medora,
Ana tne billows rouing nigu.
Restlessly tip-lifting, hearing,
- Seem to kiss the ebon sky;
Is his ship upon the ocean?
Flar-thina of the tossing deep;
,On ! in every night ortempest.
Vigils for your lOTe you keep.
Ceased thy waiting soon, Medora,
Ceased tby gazing o'er the sea;
lie win come again, uuc never
Shall his coming waken thee;
or in suenceinou art steeping,
aU tby watching, waitiago'er;
nd no arms shall reach to greet him
When his ship comes to the shore.
Thot wast not alone, Medora,
Other hearts, thy grief hate known,
Till the life-tide ceased its ebbing,
Till the weary soul had flown.
Oh! my God! what hearts are breaking.
Wish this waiting all in Tain,
For the idols that they cherished.
That will nerer come again.
