Let the Republican majority this
spring be the largest ever given in the
town and low n.-hip. Such a result w ill
help us in the tall campaign.
The nominees of the Republican party
for every oilice, from the highest to the
lowest, in this city are good men and
true Republicans. Tiieru is not the
least reason why any Republican should
vote against any man nominated.
We are j. leased to announce that

The motto of the Democrats in the

Whenever an attempt is made to inves

Speaking of brilliant editorials w e are
forcibly reminded of Jutlc Dittey's
scholarly enconium on Pierce's (iolden
Medical Discovery to be found in the
second column of the editorial page in
last week's -'t;tttc. The alleged quota
tion from Pope, "Man's inhumanity to
woman makes countless thousands
mourn," is apt, and evinces a wide ex
ploration of the literary field.
Dr. A. O. P.yers, of the State Hoard of
Charities upholds the bill to abolish In
firmary Directors. He says they are
a nuisance entailing unneccessary ex
pense and that their work, in most
cases, would be done bettor and with
less cost by the County Commissioners.
The Doctor may have been drawing de
ductions from observation of the In
firmary Directors in Hamilton and Cler
Orand Master Workman 1'owderly
has bis bands full and then some. The
Knights throughout the country hive
proved themselves whimsical and unruly
and the attempt to govern sucli a med
ley mass is fraught with vexations. He
has issued a circular calling upon all
members of the organization to refrain
from strikes fnd boycotts and yet both
flourish and extend. He insists if his
advice is not heeded his resignatii n
must be accepted.
The Clermont Courier has an article
on "Low Neckedness" in which it scores
Mrs. Elizabeth Cady Stanton and advo
cates that the limit of vision be extend
ed as near the waist-line as practicable.
Dress is entirely a custom but if there is
any immodesty in nudity, the wholesale
display of boats and bare arms and
beauteous charms is decidedly improper:
So far as health is concerned, pink
tights peeping through dim clouds of
white netting would be picfcrable to
leaving snowy bosoms and dazzling
busts exposed to drafts of cold as well
as to critical gaze.
The discussion concerning use of ballot-boxes
for Justices of the Teace at
elections is settled by the following sec
tion from the revised statutes, which
has not been amended. Under the law,
only one ballot-box and out set of judges
and clerks are necessary.
.Section 2!i:!0. When an election lor
State, county and township otlieers, or
any of them, takes place on the same
day it shall be held by the same judges
and clerks of election and the names of
candidates for all of such offices shall be
upon the same ballot; and when an
election for State, county, municipal,
township officers, or any of them takes
place on the samm day, it shall be held
by the same judges and clerks of elec
tion and the names of candidates for
such oilices shall be upon the same bal
lot, except that in a municipal corpora
tion, the limits of which are not co-extensive
with the limits of the township,
there may be separate ballots and ballot
boxes, and separate judges and clerks of
the election, for municipal otlieers.
The municipal convention held by the
Republicans at the Court-bouse on Mon
day of last week Wa remarkable for its
numbers and enthusiasm. Nearly the
whole Republican stiength in the cor
poration was out at the convention.
The Republicans aic all well satisfied
with their ticket and there is no kicking
or dissatisfaction w hatever in their ranks
as stated by the llu-.Ur. Mr. HarmaTi,
the nominee for Mayor, received a ma
jority of the votes cast at the primary,
or morn votes, than hull, of Ids competi
tors. And he will bo elected by a liko
overwhelming majority over any and all
opposition. The ::izei:s of the town,
without regard to party alliliations, owe
it to themselves as well is to him to see
to it that he is so elected, for his admin- :
istration of municipal atiai rs dui inir his'
present term has been clean and re-:
spectable and economical, and he has;
turned more money into the public i
treasury by the prompt collection of ,
lilies, licenses, etc., than any of bis .
predecessors ever did. He will be '
elected. The long service of James !
Lyle on the police force has made every j
voter in the corporation acquainted (
with his courage and superior qualifica
tions for the ollice of Marshal. There
is no kicking aNuit Jim'H nomination, j
and his defeated opjmiienU are working 1
for him with as much zeal as the rest of
the Republicans. The whole ticket will ,

one of the early pioneers of Clinton county,
was born in Blount county, near Maryville,
Tenn., March 2tith, 18011. He is the son of James
and Mary Garner, who came to this State in
1811, bought land and settled on the East fork
which is now near the present site of Farmers
Station. It was then a dense forest whose
principal inhabitants were wild animals. Mr.
Garner's early life was spent in helping to
clear out hie father's farm. He was very fond
of hunting and soon became an expert and it
was not unfrequently that he would kill as
many as three deer in one day, and where we
now see the beautiful farms and fine buildings,
was then his favorite hunting ground. 'The
forests abounded in wild game of all kinds,
wild turkey's being very numerous. When
quite a young man he learned the tanners
trade, bought a tannery near Martinsville,
where he was extensively engaged in the tan
ning and shoe business for a number of years.
In 136 he was united in marriage with Miss
Mary Betterton, daughter of Joshua and Mary
West Betterton, who were natives of Campbell
county; Va., migrated to Clinton county in
1812, where he purchased quite an extensive
tract of land, part of which comprises the
Sreseut homestead of I. and P. Betterton.
tb. Garnor was born February 14tu, 1815 and
was reared on tho old homestead where P.
Betterton now resides. Mr. and Mrs. Garner
went to housekeeping at the tan-yard where
he now resides. In 1848, he rented bis farm,
and removed to Blanchester, where he again
resuaied the tanuing business, after living
there about two years he found that hia farm
was losing more under the management of
renters than he was gaining by wurking at his
trado, ho removed back on the farm where he
has since engaged in tilling the soil. When
they moved to Blanchester they took with them
the first cook stove that was evor used in that
town. It was ipiite a curiosity in those days.
Mr. Garner has served hia township as Justioe
of the Peace, for a period of tweuty-four
years, consecutively. In the spring of 18S2, on
account of poor health, he declined to accept
the oftice longer. He has filled various local
offices. He is a member of the Society of
Friends. Mrs. Garner is a member of the M.
P. Church. They are the parents of twelve
children, seven of whom are living.

An Anecdote of Leonard Bacon.
I am rcuiinileil of u characteristic)
anecdote ol the vem-ratei! Leonard
Hacoti. New ILiVeu's theological sem
inary had one particularly promising
student in u class that graduated a few
years before Dr. liacon died. He had
done wonderful things iu a literary"
way; lie was known of all the college
for his originality, ais depth, aud his
brilliaucy. And when the' time enruo
for graduation this extraordinary young
iuau, whose face was not set against
parade, read his commencement thesis
before a club whose membership in
cluded not only members of Yale's up
per classes, but representatives of tho
faculty and prominent congregational
clergymen. I)r. liacon was a member;
lit ewise Dr. liacou was preseut ou this
particular evening, and with tho rest
he gave close attention to tho reading;
nor was he without evidence of interest
as oue by one conspicuous members of
the club rose, discussed the paper, aud
complimeuled the brilliant student on
the brain power that had given him
such a mastery of metaphysics. Fin
ally came his turn wheu everybody elso
had exhausted laudatory adjectives. At
firs' he had declined to say anything.
People who waited and kuew Leonard
liacon understood how in tho end ho
could not longer restrain himself. lie
didn't say much. This was all: "I
liked this evening's paper, too. 1 al
ways did like it. 1 liked it forty years
ago when I lirst read it. i like it now.
It's oue of the things that will last.
And I am delighted to discover such
excellent taste iu this young man who
has laboriously copied it for us. If any
of the rest of tho club desiro to make
copies I will gladly loan the volume
that contains it." 'lint that nla''iariz-
iug young man wasn't crushed. He is
occupying the pulpit of a rich church
to-day. Acw lork limes.
Winter Evening Reading.
It is a delightful way to pass theloti"-
YViuter evenings, when the children are
old enough for it, fur the family to
take up the plays of bhakspoure, as
signing tho various parts to dill'ereut
members of I lie family. If your own
circle be n'jt sniliciently largo, call iu
your neighbors. Let the young people
bo made to read correctly, intelligently
and well; thus you are abh: to accom
plish several things. An ca.e of man
ner in reading is ac.tiired, a correct
ear, a knowledge of the best use of
words, aud naturally follows a love of
the highest literature. Thru wheu it
becomes possible for the children to see
some one of these familiar plavs ou
the stage, take, them yourselves. 'Thus
they will easily see that tho theater is
to you a plueo Nvhere something good
may be seen aud heard; possibly you
may bo able to form so correct a taste
iu early life as to preclude al1 desire fur
interior actors ami ilays. hot your in
tellectual standard lne;u and try to keep
yourselves iu sympathy wilh tlio chil
dren iu every way, and they will liavo
uo desire to conceal anything; tbe book,
tho amusement, thu friend, will be all
tho more enjoyable because of tho presence-
ot tho I uhcr and mother into their
inner life.--.bra. K.tcn i'.nj JJuo'.cr, i;

Mr. Tilden's Life at Greystone.
About a mile aud a half tibovo this
town is "(irevstone," tho pr.lntinl resi
deucc of Saiuuel J. Tildeu. aud uear bv
are the beautiful couutry residences of
ttio rielits, the Colgutes, James d. jMc
Coonrb, Jay Gould, John Jav, Alexan
der Ilamiltou, C'li.tuiicey II. bepow, ex
Colloctor Robertson, Washinjctou Ir
ving and niuuy others distinrrnished iu
tho hiatory of a preut city. Having
Dover married, Mr. Tildeu lives tit
"Greystouo" tho most of his time, his
companion being ex-Comptroller Green,
who resides with him. Mr. Tildon's
house is constructed of greystouo. His
park is laid out in beautiful drives and
walks, and is free to the public. Mr.
Tilden himself is rarely soon by visitors,
beiug guarded in his immense mausion
bv his evor-watcbing secretaries aud
Mr. Green, his business manager. A
day or so ago I weut to see tho "Sage
of Greystouo," and to my surprise Mr.
Tildeu himself opeued the door to an
swer my timid ring. In spito of all
that is said about the failure of his
health which is not all true Mr. Til
don carries tho weight of his seventy
one years uncommonly well. Ho has
not a very vigorous physique, and his
spare form is now slightly beut, and
Iris thin hair is whitened with tho frosts
of mauy winters. His eyes droop a
little, aud, whatever may bo tho cause,
ho is unablo to use his right arm and
hand at the tablo or in dressing. It is
said ho has had a stroko of paralysis,
which has been succeeded by a sort of
palsy, so that his right hand is never iu
repose, but trembles constantly. In
ordinary conversation Mr. Tildon's
voice is low, sinking at times almost to
a whisper. That ho is just as bright
and as quick-witted as ever, 1 have uo
doubt. Ho is iudoed as sharp as a
needle in all his transactions. He
walks slowly aud with difficulty, due to
partial paralysis. At home he is hos
pitable aud kindly. His collection of
engravings is marvellous. .Some of his
treasures are invaluable. His auto
graph copies are numerous, and the
man who cotild bo bored or emmied if
left for hours alouo iu Mr. Tildeu's
library would bo just tho sort of a mau
thut I should iniagiuo would go to a
masquerade ball in a baby's frock. At
the present lime Mr. Tildeu is greatly
interested in the construction of his iin
meuso conservatory aud iu tho propa
gation of lino stock. His now con
servatory when linislii-d will be perhaps
the largest aud most complete, iu this
country. It is several hundred feet
long, aud will bo heated bv steam. Iu
each section the pipes will lie so ar
ranged that the temperature cau bo
lixed independently of tho udjoiuing
sections. Jfy this means fruits and
grapes cau be kept iu dill'ereut stages
of development, so that, as tho pro
duels o-' oue secliou have bceu ex
hausted, those of the adjoining one
will be ready tor use. Iu most of tho
sections a trough of water will ruu
through tho lull length of the conserv
atory, thus serving thu double purpose
of moistening the atmosphere ami of
supply tho attendants with water for
the plants. W hen liiiished, the beauti
ful grounds and conservatory of "Grey
Bione,' which cau bo seen lioiu the lino
road leading to Tarrylowu, will bo
thrown open freely to nil visitors, un
der the. supervision ot Mr. 'Jildeii's
