! A gentleman came up in the Reflec
tor office one day recently and after
planking 81.50 down on the table began
his argument something after the fol
lowing manuur: There's $1.50, Mr.
Editor, for which please send me your
paper for one year. I have read your
paper for the list six months and have
become interested in it, but the fact is
I have been borrowing it of my neigh
bor. . I have found out recently, how
ever, that they d") not like to lend their
paper, and so I must have one of my
own." What the gentleman said was
true, and there are probably other par
ties fixed the same way.

Presiding Elder S. E. Pendleton, of

pay all classes to patronize him."
Rev. Homer Eddy, pastor Baptist

The Official Vote.
We give today the official count of
'he vole of Dickinson county. It will
be seen that the majorities are hand
some ones, being larger than were ever
before known in the county. The total
vote of the county is 5,009. an in
crease of nearly 500 over four years
ago. The Republican candidates, with
one exception, had pluralities of about
1,000. Mr. Seeds ran nearly 1,000
votes ahead of his ticket and was only
defeated by 13 votes.
The Union Labor vote surprised
everyl o ly. The leaders of the party
had made such loud boasts of their
strength that many actually believed
iheir claims. The vote of the party in
ciiis county was variously estimated at
from 1,200 to 1,800. The true figures
are however, as will be seen, 473- a
vote of 18S4.
Th L'rotiibitiouists gained 120
votes over 1884, but as their vote then
was only thirty-six they have much
more reason to be elated. The table is
correct nith the exception that Kirby
received 90 scattering votes for com
missioner not therein reported.
The result of the election emphasizes
what the Keflectoi: has persistently
urged the desirability of Republican
unity. By presenting a united front to
the enem. as was done this year,
Dickinson county is ours by a clean
majority of 1,000 for every name on
t lie ticket. Let Republicans remember
his iu the tuture.
The last appearance of the Prescott
McLean company was before a far
more creditable house than upon the
opening night. Indeed the audience
was one of the best that has gathered
in the Bonebr.ike this season. ''The
Merchant of Venice" was the play of
the evening and it is but just to the
empanj io suy that the high anticipa
iu:is of t!e auditors were fully reali
