HILLSBORO, O., Dec. 16, 1884.
A Pleasant Time.
SINKING SININGS, O., Dec. 1884,
FmToita News. Mr. J. T. Yaukio and
brido have returned from their wedding
tour through the eastern and southern
states, and a grand reception was given at
tho residence of Mr. Joe Swisshelm in hon
or of their return, which was pronounced a
pleasant occasion. The invited guests
were : Mr. John SwisHhelm and wife, of
Hillsboro j Kev. J. C. Wells and wife, Sam
uel Pattou aud wife, J. Yankie aud wife,
W. S. Pattou, Nelson Yankie, Frank Tnrley
and wife, T. J. MclCeehau aud wife, Silva
McKcehau and Emma Swisshelm.
After a magnificent dinner the guests
were entertained with instrumental music,
conversation, etc., aud, after congratulating
the happy, they dispersed to their respect
After dark the hells, tin pans, etc., could
be heard round about the residence, and
after the belling had ceased they were sere
naded by the Sinking Springs String Baud,
to whom the bride aud groom gave a rare
treat. Wo wish them much joy.
Well, we are to have one. For the ben
efit of those who may uot require on escort
thither in tho near hereafter, we will sim
ply say that they will find it located imme
diately in the rear of the county jail.
We join with all good citizens in think
ing it is a necessity to the town, and in the
hope that it will be the means of assisting
our officers in carrying tho law iuto effect.
Of courso there will be expense attached
to it, and some objections have beeu made
on that account. It may not pay in
Jinanritil sense possibly, but this is not the
view to take of a project which bus for
end tho breaking up of vagraucy aud
forms of petty crimes in our midst.
The establishment of the "stone pile"
has another good feature. The Council
and County (JonimiHsioncrs nave oy agree
ment placed the building for "hard labor'
close to tho jail, and both Statu and cor.
poratiou prisoners w ill bo worked, where
the law permits tho same to be done.
In tho Unit I It' last issue, under
above heading, some retloetious were east
on the Council who failed to accept
Sheriff's bill for convict labor done on
streets. This failure on the Couucil's part
was attributed to a fear of tho workiugnieu
and to purty grounds.
The (frtteffrfis mistaken. Tho Sheriff's
hill usked for if 1 . .10 per day for each con
vict's labor, whether ho was ycung or
infirm or able-bodied. Asa natter of
more than half of the men worked on
siroets under the Sheriff were not able
bodied. In th" nbs.-nei' of any contract
Council paid for the work done ut reason
able rat.s p.er rod. This wus fi.r to both
county and corpoialiou.
"As the Teacher is, so is the School."
H. C. T. A.
The meeting hold December 13th, 1881,
at Leesburg, was a success iu the fullest
sense of tho word. Notwithstanding the
inclement aspect of the weather a largo
number of teaohers was present from this
county, and from districts adjoining. Even
tbe citizens and fanners near paid tribute
to the splendid program and gathered early
to receive a portion of circulating deci
mals, grammar, fun, and elocution, in re
turn for turkey, pie, cake, etc., spread so
hospitably before the teaohers. Among
the things to be appreciated was the music
furnished by some of the young ladies and
gentlemen of that place. J. M Kay, of
Hi!:boro, gave quite an interesting talk on
circulating decimals, with a few hints on
Ihe methods of presenting this difficult
subject to a class. The subject was
handled so well that even persons not con
nected with school work, were highly
pleased. He was followed by Fenton Gall,
who furnished food for thought, and plans
for cxercis 1 iu the schoolroom on the sub
ject of grammar. By frequent references
made to the subject afterward, it was
noticeable that his talk was highly appre
ciated by nil. Tho exercises in the after
noon were opened by a volley of fun from
Frof. Pollock, whose subject was "Func
tions of Fuu iu the Schoolroom." He not
only plead for laughing, fun-loving Johnnie,
to the teachers, but also cautioned parents
against the use of too rigid means for the
suppression of love of innocent fun with
their children. He proved that the child,
easy to grasp the ludicrous, is more suscep
tible in the hands of a teacher, than one
sullen, angry, or stubborn. Iu conclusion
bo earnestly urged the teachers first to
work for general good humor, and then for
the presentation of school duties iu a lively
and attractive way, striving at all times to
keep tho interest and attention of the clasp.
Tho Professor practices what he preaches.
Ho gave us a very instructive address iu a
genial, good-humored manner, quite often
creating an audible smile from his audience.
This was a forcible object lesson. Next in
order came a discussion on reading, opened
by J. M. Holaday, of Lynchburg, but as
the teachers were slow in responding, very
little was done with this subject. Wo were
highly favored with a paper on goad rend
ing by Miss Ora Brown, and two very fine
selections read in an easy, pleasing style,
indicating a high degree of cultivation.
She took the audience by storm with "The
Creeds of tho Bells," and nielli il it to tears
by the recital of "The Fall of the Peuiber
tou Mills." She will always be a welcome
visitor to the H. C. T. A.
It was regretted that Mr. Pavey was so
engaged that he could not bo present, but
we hope ho will favor us at some future
time. A recess of five minutes was given
to enable teachers to become acquainted,
and for thoso not being members to sign
the roll. Mr. E. G. Smith, President of
the Association, urged tho teachers of the
comity to become members, thereby con
tributing to the fund by paying a feo of
one dollar for the purpose of dofrayiug the
expenses of this Institute, os the Executive
Committee were securing able lecturers for
their e.rpennet only. Under other circum
stances these lectures would cost us fifty
dollars. All who have beeu so fortunate as
to hear Profs. Johnson and Pollock will
endorse what wo have said. A voto of
thanks was tendered Prof. Pollock, Miss
Brown, and tho citizens of Leesburg who
had so generously opened their doors for
the ontertainment of the teachers. Wo are
pleased to note that 'Squire Hilliard, on
behalf of tho people of Leesburg, thanked
the teachers for the pleasure they had de
rived from their meeting and hoped they
would meet there again. It was docided to
hold the next meeting at Hillsboro, the
Becoud Saturday in January, 1885. We
learu that the Executive Committee have
secured L. D. Brown, Com., for the next
meeting, aud the indications now are that
the program will bo a good one. Let every
teacher be present. B. D. R.
Where, O where were the teachers of
Mr.' Holaday, of Lynchburg, with bis
corps of teachers, was there.
All tho teachers of the Hillsboro Schools,
except the Superintendent, were in attend
Misses Erviu and Conn, of the Washing
ton Schools, and Misses Smith aud Miller,
of .ho New Vicnua Schools, were present.
Flease ask Mr. Holaday which he can
write with more ease (e's) tweedledeo or
tweedledum, and see what be will say now.
Miss Hilliard aud Mr. Weaver favored
the Association with a very flue duet, en
titled "The Dreifm of my Life." Under
the guidance of Mr, Weaver the children
acquitted themselves we'll in a chorus.
We wero delighted to meet so many of
the Greenfield teachers at the Association.
It is hoped they will find it convenient each
tinio to attend. We are glad to welcome
such men as Prof. Molor in our county and
hope he may soon become acquainted.
8. M. Tuggart deserves a groat deal
credit for the success of this mooting, for
it was certainly due to his able efforts that
the teachers fared so sumptuously. He
had arranged with the people for the en
tertainment of seventy-live teachers. Can
wo uot do as well iu Hillsboro for the next
There teems to boa general waking
of the taichci'S iu tho county, as shosvu
the increased interest t .ken in the Associa
tion. Wo only heard of three teachers
"who did not care anything about
thing." But on reflection wo remembered
that they always appear lato at the Annual
Institute, take a back seat, and listen inat
tentively to the exercises. Zeros never
couut anything by themselves.

PENN-TEDROW SHOOTING CASE.
The Jury Disagree and are Discharged.
The trial of Hanson L. Penn, of George
town, for Bhooting Adam I'edrow, occupied
the whole of last week, the jury retiring on
Saturday evening, and being out all night
and until nearly Sunday noon, wheu they
were discharged, being unable to agree.
The case excited more than usual interest,
from tbe facts that the shooting was appar
ently unprovoked and that the trial had
been postponed for several years, the crime
having beeu committed in July, 1880, dur
ing the Demoeratic'Cougressional Conven
tion of that year.! The defendant is of re
spectable family, being a son of the late
Hanson L. Penn, one of tho most promi
nent aud wealthy citizens of Georgetown.
The evideuco showed that Penn was drunk
at the time and jostled against Tedrow iu a
crowd, neither knowing the other aud hav
had no previous difficulty.
Tho principal wituess for the State, Mr.
Stephen Hickle, testified that wheu the col
lision occurred, Penn exclaimed, "damn
your, I'll shoot you," and taking deliberate
aim at Tedrow, firrd. On the part of the
defense Mr. Kufus Stein testified that he
heard tho threat to shoot, but was confident
the words were uot spoken by Penn, as he
was well acquainted with him and knew his
voice. The main defense set up for Penn
was, that he was too drunk to know what
ho was f.bout. It was shown that Tedrow
had recovered from the wound, that Penn
paid bis doctor bill, and compromised a
civil suit for damages by paying him if 1,000
and agreeing to pay him $l,000more if he
(Penn) should escapo being sent to the pen
Tedrow was not present at the trial,
counsel for the State aud defense claiming
that he could not be found.

From present indicatioiiB the Highland
County Teachers' Association has come to stay,
which fact we are pleased to anticipate, inas
much as they may, by this confederation, ac
complish great good, and better come to an
understanding of what a true teacher's duties
are, and what necessary steps should be taken
to advance the standard of tbe profession, and
make it truly a profession, and not merely a
stepping stone to enable one to financially
catcii hold of some other trade or business.
And may they be active in tho work so well
begun, is our hope; and at last each and all
tako the News.
Judge J. B. Foraker. one of Ohio's honored

fore have a right to use our vocal organs, ac
cording to the premises laid down by the
Judge. Wherefore hear all ye people. No one
should be without a home paper, and believing
many to be on the eve of subBcribing for one
for the coming year, we tako the responsibility
to saying to you, that your money would be
better invested and your time better employed
in taking and reading the Hiohi.and News,
which is a recommendation of itself and which
has from its birth to the present been conHis
tent, reliable and wholcHoiue in its published
matter, and stands to-day, after all the fiery
trials it has encountered, as a beacon light to
