Col. Barleon, of McArthur, was
a visitor in our city on Sunday, the
euest of his old time friend Col. Pur
se!. Col. Barleon is a candidate
for State Supervisor of Public Print
ing, has the united endorsement of
his county committee, and the earn
est support of Pursell and many
other friends. Bro. Tony is doing
editorial work on the reconstructed
Vinton Record, and by his vigorous
hot blasts is making the Democracy
of the sand hills sweat blood.
The Executive Committee of the
Farmers Institute meet Saturday to
prepare a program for the forthcom
ing session. We urge that the mat
ter of Road Improvement be made a
leading topic in tbe discussion. What
does it matter us, if the learned pro
fessor can show us, by combining the
acids, by utilizing the gasses, by ap
plying the assimilants, we can raise
more corn or more wheat, when the
cost of getting the products to the
Logan market costs more than the
produce is worth? Transportation
is the uppermost issue with the far
mer. Any sensible man, with good
land can raise a good crop. Ho might
almost as well be in China with bis
crop,r.s to be in some patts of Hock
ing county, so far as the matter of a
market is concerned. The business
for the farmer to look straight at the
face is, not how to hoe corn or plant
potatoes or mow hay, but "how am
I to get it to market?" The Institute
will do the best in the line for which
it is sustained, to take practical steps
looking to the improvement of the
roads upon which we haul out tbe
fertilizer and haul in tho wheat.
The Agricultutal Society.
This organization we are told is
not dead, but sleeping. It will wake
up next month and have an election
Wouldn't it be a good time for
the Agricultural Society to take up
tbe question in favor of better roads.
The point in issue is, how are we to
go at it?
The farmers are the interested
parties. The Commissioners are
their agents. Let some plan be
agreed upon. Let some road be des
ignated. Let the farmers, when in
convention or at election,agree among
themselves. Let us, as we states
men put it, let's nominate a ticket
and then stand by it. Let the con
vention say we improve to Ilesboro,
or to Perry, or to Blooraingville, anv
road, or any parts of several road.",
and then the Commissioners can go
to work and not be annoyed and em
harassed by the carping,fault finding
of the always dissatisfied.
The way and the only way to ef
fect road improvement in this county
is for the intelligent farmers to come
together, determine on a plan, sub
mit it to the Commissioners and
when accepted by this body, then
stand by each other and stand up for
With an intelligent and interested
public sentiment supporting the com
missioners, we can have some
improvement. Without co-operation
of the people, all our talk is as inaf
fective as the whispers of the lazy

A reason why our business men
have hard times in Logan, may be
partly accounted for in this Daring
the last year nearly forty thousand
dollars of money was sent through
the post-office to dry goods dealers
in Columbus, and other cities. It is
but fair to guess that much more cash
went up to Columbus, in the pockets
of onr people during the last year.
At any rate, from sixty to eighty
thousand dollars of Logan money
has been spent on goods with mer
chants outside of Logan. This money,
in the channels of trade, and the
profits on the sale of this amount of
good?, would have materially helped
make times better, with Logan busi
The question properly askod, ho n
can this be helped?
This suggestion is made from a
newspaper standpoint, and of course
must be taken with all the allowance
as to mercenary, selfish and personal
The Columbus business men flood
the mails with advertisements of
their goods. They spend thousands
of dollars, advertising in Hocking
county, telling the people what bar
garins they have, and inviting
our people, when in the city to come
and see them. In the meantime our
business men seem to do a confi
dential bubiness. They appear to
act as though they don't want the
people to know they are in business,
and if they are, they are not
solicitors for custom. A few of
the old timers, who have their regu
lar trading places, continue their
custom, but the man who has fifty
dollars of money to spend, don't
know that stores keep iu Logan,
don't know we have live men or that
his trade is wanted; but he has been
invited by advertisement to come to
Columbus, where he will be made
welcome and be goes to Columbus,
or if not, he sends and gets samples
of goods. He inspects and finds price3
he thinks fair. He don't know the
same goods are in our Logan stores.
He hasn't been told so, and he don't
take time to inquire.
The Logan stores, like the Hock
ing canal and the abandoned barn,
and tbe closed bank, are matters to
him of the past. They may exist,
but ho don't know, don't realize. He
deals with the live people.
It has come to this in all business
that it must be kept up in the line,
or it will get behind. The man who
sits on the fence waiting for the
wagon, will get left. The procession
will pass on. The storekeeper who
don't keep the people advised that he
is in business, will soon be numbered
with the good of their day who sleep
in the cemetery."
Most of the live towns in our state
'unite in trying to keep business at
nome, and stand together in this re
gard. Here we have the cut throat game,
and if a dollar job of printing can be
got for fiye cents cheaper in Colum
bus where "rats" do the work, it is
given there and then the complaint
is, why don't Logan people patronize-
The Sentinel has never opened
i!s columns for advertisements of
business houses that competed with
our own. We have had a pride to
keep up our own town trade and have
lost lots of money by not giving a
column "our business room" if you
please, to a renter from Columbus,
when a Logan man wouldn'ttake it.
A sensible thing for our business
men to do, it appears to us at this
writing, is to stop fighting,- and
unite in an effort to keep our trade
at home, and unless this is done, and
done very soon we will be but a sub
urb of Columbus and our business iu
Logan will be conducted by agents
from central stores, who put on our
markets the refuse of the city coun
ters. NEWSPAPER ASSIGNMENT.
The Natural Result of Too Many
Papers m One Town.
George H. Tyler, proprietor of the
Chillicothe Daily Gazette and Leader
Gazette, and his wife, Hattie H. Ty
ler, assigned all their real estate
Monday for the benefit of creditors.
Tbe newspaper plants, which were
heavily moataged, were turned over
to a number of their .creditors, who
will form a stock company and as
sume the management of the publi
cations. The Loader has for several years
been striving unsuccessfully for rec
ognition from tbe merchants and gen
eral public of Chillicothe and Ross
county, but the field being entirely
covered by old and well established
papers, it could obtain no foothold,
and at last yield ed to tbe inevitable.
Mr. Tyler's assignment involved
many of his financial supporters, who
have been bolstering up the concern
during its entire career.
Mr. Tyler is one ot the most brill
iant and hard working editors of the
state, and made a long fourteen-year
fight with the Leader to supplant the
Gazette. He got occasional recogni
tion from an incidental county offi
cer, and was postmaster under the
Harrison administration, but the sal
ary of this office was not sufficient,
added to the business the Leader
could secure, to float the paper, and
the assignment follows. The in
debtedness is over 12,000. Circle

This Association of Editors, con
stituting the oldest continuous organ
ization in the state, met in Colum
bus on the 27th.
The meeting was called, especially
to appoint delegates to the National
Editorial Association which meets in
Galveston, Texas, in February, where
after a weeks' session the Association
visits, on invitation, the city of Mex
ico, where for a week or a month,
thoy will be the guests of our neigh
bors in this ancient city of the Mon
tozumas and the modern and pro
gressive capital of our next door
The delegates and alternates ebos-
n, will first meet at St. Louis, where
in special train they will go to Gal
veston. Here the interests of the
profession in a four days' session
will be discussed, and for several
days following the bights of this city
of the Gulf will be displayed to the
wondering gaze of the North men,
especially to High Hill men of the
Hocking andOhio Valley. The trip
to Mexico will be a delightful one,
and every courtesy will be given the
distinguished company. A special
train is placed at the disposal of the
editors, go as they please, stop when
and where they wish. The city of
Mexico and the Government opens
wide the gates and will take care of
the invading Knights of tbe Lead
Pencil in fraternal style.
A month, possibly, will be given
to tbe oxcursiou, and the fortunate
readers of the papers whose editors
go as representatives, will be enter
tained and instructed with the letters
that come back.
The following delegates and alter
nates were appointed: Delegate,
J. L. Trauger, Lutheran Standard;
Columbus, Ohio; alternate, Lewis

Delegate, Barney McCabe, Coshoc

Delegate, J. R. Cushmall, Granville

A committee was appointed to pre
pare and report at next meeting me
morial resolutions on the death of C.
E. M. Jennings, Athens Messenger,
aud Dan Bowcrsmith, editor of the
Ohio State Journal. The committee
is D. H. Gaumer, Lewis Green and
R. D. Bush.
The following committee was ap
pointed on constitution and bye laws:
Trauger, Furay and Gaumer.
The following committee was ap
pointed on membership: Green,
Trauger and Bush.
The matter of the annual excur
sion was discussed. Several routes
were suggested, on the Lakes, to the
Sea Coast, and Sherman's line of
March. It was generally preferred
that the Association go to Nashville,
thence to Chatanooga, Ashville and
the Sea Coast, some time next June.
The matter was finally referred to a
committee consisting of Messrs. Gau
mer, Cullinan and Trauger, to de
termine. The Association adjourned lo meet
in March, on call ot the president.

Meeting of W.R.C.
The Sixteenth Ohio District of the
Womans Relief Corps held their
semi-annual convention In G. A. R.
Hall at Logan, the 18th. Delegates
aud visitors were present from Nel
sonville, Athens, Chilicothe and
Ashland. Among the distinguished
guests were Mrs. Cressinger,depart
tuent president; Mrs. Piatt, I. and I
officer;the delegates were as follows:
Mrs. Divore, Nelsonville; Mrs. K-v

and I. officer. Mrs. Piatt was made
the presiding officer for the day.
Mrs. J. T. McCormick delivered in
an able manner the welcome address
to which Mrs. Cora Poston, ot Nel
sonville responded. The reports from
the various Committees revealed the
fact that W.R.C. is rapidly becom
ing a vast organization, handling
large sums of money and accomplish
ing a grand and noble work. It was
strictly a woman day, the sterner
sex were not in it; but one whole
day of isolation from the noblest
part of creation was all the ladies
could stand and it was unanimously
decided to give the gentlemen a
special invitation to attend tbe even
ing session, consequently the hall was
filled to its utmost capacity. An enter
taining program under the manage
ment of of Mrs.Strawn was rendered.
An orchestra under the efficient di
rection of our worthy friend Mr.
Drew, furnished some delightful mu
sic. Mr. Drew h a thorough musi
cian and deeply interested in the
stndy of music, the Corps desires to
publicly thank the orchestra for their
valuable services. The recitations
by the Misses Montgomery. D. Mc
Cormick, and Mrs. Brooke were ex
cellent. The duet by the Misses Hall
was a pleasing feature of the evening
as was also the solo by Miss Dollison.
Mattie was in good voice and not
withstanding the disacvautages of a
crowded room and heavy atmosphere
she delighted her audience. Pleasing
addresses were made by comrades
McCormick, Strentz, Hawk, aud Dr.
Moore. The ladies spied our worthy
sheriff and called him to the front,
and in spite of the heart trouble to
which tbe sheriff is subject in the
presence of the ladies, he delivered a
masterly oration on the subject of the
woman in the moon, and retired
amidst the smiles, cheers and waving

5IOUND BLLDER AND
HISTORIC A L
The Ohio State University and
The Ohio Archaeological and His
torical Society have been engaaged
during the ptst three years in mak
ing a large and important collection
of Indian, Mound Builder and Pioneer
relics. These have been placed in
an absolutely fire-proof museum on
the grounds of the State University
While Ohio is the riehest state in
remains of the aborigines, it was not
until recently that the statecollection
became large enough to be favorably
compared with similar exhibits in the
eastern museum. For many years
Ohio has been despoiled of valuable
and interesting relics b these east
ern institutions. Our own people
hive given the subject of the pres
ervartion and study very little thought
There are in the hands of person
over the state, many thousands of
stone, bone andc'ay objects made
and rsprl by primitive tribes; old
books, maauscripts, land grants, old
letters and other historical doouraenta
relating to the settlement of Ohio;
pioneer relics such as old clocks,
spinning wheels, flails, wooden
springs, coins, etc. Those will be
come lost or scattered, That they
should be preserved and properly
labeled and cared for in behalf ot
future generation goes without say
ing. The museum at the Ohio State
University is the proper reposity for
all such things. Once placed there
they can never be burned or stolen.
Every specimen in the Museum i.-
properly labeled with the name of
the person who donated it, the data
and other particulars. The State
Histonal Society, together with the
University, desirs to make a strong
plea to the people of Ohio to send
by express or freight any relics in
their possession. The charges on
same will gladly be paid by tke
Museum and due credit given the
donors. From those wha do not
c3re to donate,, specimens will be re
ceived on loan, subjeet to with
drawal at the option of the owner.
The Curator of the University
will be glad to correspond with all
patriotic persons regarding the work
of the Museum and the character of

Eva J. Bell, daughter of William
and Susan Bell, was bom in Gibison
ville, Ohio, October 15, 1860. She
was married to Joseph Mattox,
March 1884 by Rev. G. W, Burns.
She died November 22, 1896 at her
home in Nelsonville, O., aged 36yrs.
She was a loving wife, a devoted
mother and was of a kind and affect-
ate disposition, and her early depart
ure is bitterly mourned by many.
She leaves a husband, three ohil-
dreu, mother, four brothers and three
sisters to mourn their loss. It is
natural for us to mourn, but we
doubt not at this moment that she ia
looking down from her immortal
home, above all earthly sorrow and
saying: "Weep not dear husband and
friends, but prepare to meet me when
you are called from life." The fu
neral services were conducted by
Rev. J. F. Williams.
"You have left ui Jarllns sister,
You so bright and gay;
Lite a rosebud early blighted.
Passed your Ufa away.
"You may thlnlc we'.rto not rat you,.
Yet vre can but weep;

But angels loved you more;

To yonder shining shore.

A gentlo voice said '-come,"
And with a farewell unspoken.
She calm y entered home."
