It was announced when tlio consoli
tlutlqii .of the News ajul Herald was ef
fecletl tlmt tlio name of tlio paper would
bo changed, at soino Hum in the future,
and the proprietors consider this an np
propriate Hmo to change it. With this
issu4lho.Hiaiii.AXD Xmrs goes into its
fiftieji jear,a(a steadfast Republican
journal. Tho lust, number was 53 of
Volume 4!), the extra number being ad
ded tokeep the beginning of tho year
in tlicimouth of April, where it was
fifty -yearn ago.
detaining the old heading of the News
has occasioned a good deal of misunder
standing on the part of advertisers and
subscribers, and to correct false im
pressions is one of tho purposes of tho
present change. The proprietors of
both papers constitute the News-Herald
Company, and the subscription list is
combined from tho names on bbth sets
of books. To advertisers a large list of
subscribers, with a reasonable rate for
space, offers a special inducement. The
patrons ot our job office will take notice
that wo possess the entire equipments
of both offices, and employ ono of the
best'' job printers in Southern Ohio, and
yet are, prepared. to do work as cheaply
as any oll'icc that does honest work on a
reasonable basis of prices.
Wo have been studying the wants of
our readers, in general, and our efforts
have been rewarded by a very percept
ible increase in our subscription list. In
tho future we shall continue to labor
for tho benefit of our patrons, that the
paper may still be conducted in their
interest as well as our own. We shall
endeavor to have our news pages char
acterized by thoroughness, our political
columns by vigor and justice, and the
entire journal by careful preparation

While tho Gaictte is renovating its of
fice, it would bo well to abolish the fedi
torial department of tho paper, as that
has been among the causes of estrange
ment between the Democracy of High
land and our fickle contemporary.
It is probable that Congress will not
soon givo to women the right to vote, so
ardently craved by the woman suffra
gists. This fact should be set down to
bo referred to next Thanksgiving Day.
Ladies are especially requested not to
read the above.
The struggle between labor and capi
tal has not yet reached a terminus.
The strikers are not willing to obey the
orders of the clear-headed Powderly,
and (thus the organization is crippled
by internal dissensions. Irons is an in
veterate "blowhard" and has done the
Knights much injury in promulgating
his rash idea that a universal strike by
the order was necessary to adjust tho
difficulty. The persistent attempt of la
borers to injure capital recalls tho hoary
siocile of ono biting off his nose to spite
his face. A serious wound to capital
must be fatal to tho labor which de
pends upon it.
The. distrust of the C. & M. Railroad
Company, which existed in the public
mind for some time after the stock was
given over, has almost entirely died
away. The policy of the company in
avoiding newspaper puffs is commend
able in contrast with other corporations
which try to build railroads on and out
of wind, using a Campbell press as a
generator. The company's course of

Money la Elections.
Tlio trreat foolltical evil of thvajrois
the uso ot money in elections' to pur-
ohaso voles., Tho .test of- n 'man's
strength as a candidate is too often his
command of money to buy off bitter op
ponents, or soften the animosities of
tho rabblo with tho flowing bowl. Many
a man is financially ruined by the steady,
drain on his pocket-book. in, ono or two
campaigns. Tho result of this nefarious
practice, should it continue to extend its
influence as it bus in tho last five years,
is not a pleasant subject to sober think
ers. It means tho downfall of all the
grand principles which .underlie our
government, and tlio triumph of boodle
and corruption over all the privileges
and institutions that the patriot holds
Neither party can claim immunity
from the blight of this national curse.
Both arc guilty of a crime against' citi
zenship. Tho subterfugo of party or
gans is to charge, tho opposing party
with tho wholesale use of capital to gain
office, without denying that its own fol
lowers aro guilty of a similar offense,
But that is not the fair way to treat the
subject. Every true citizen will openly
condemn political deviltry in any ot its
various phases, and tho newspapers
should express its contempt for the vil
liany of modern electioneering in double-leaded
italic. Tho editor who at
tempts to screen his comrades in crime
is king of tho knaves who find shelter
under his shield.
There are men now holding office in
the United Statas, in the State of Ohio,
in Highland county, who owe their suc
cess at the ballot-box to the able assist
ance of the almighty dollar. There are
more of these men than the public as
pects. The present lamentablo state of
affairs is traceable to three sources:
First, a ravenous desire for office j sec
ond, the profligacy of one class of voters ;
third, tho wretched poverty of another.
Only two offices in our knowledge fol
low the old habit of hunting up their
men. One oi tnese is, Koau supervisor,
in country districts; the other, Solicitor,
for tho Incorporated Village of Hills
boro. Wherever the salary of an office
is ample, the candidates for it are more
so. There Is a very large class of citi
zens, or rather,' inhabitants, who Bet no
value upon the privileges of citizenship,
and thus become the eager followers of
the candidate who rolls the biggest bar
rel of boodle. As this class becomes
larger or smaller will the present danger
increase or diminish. The last division,
the smallest and most pitiable, is made
up of those whom the pinch of want
drivesinto the bondage of the politician,
and who barter their rights for bread
It is high time for the better element,
irrespective of party, to rebel against
the management of "the rascals inboth.
The sooner the good people of 'the
country redeem their lost supremacy in
the political field, by routing the rabble,
the better forall. Managing committees
in county, state and nation should
pledge themselves firmly against the use
of boodle, and organize to prosecute all
violaters of the law.
Tou're Another One.
A disgusted Democratic tobacco raiser
reminded us last weeic inar inree years
ago one pound of tobacco would buy two
of sucar. now it takes two pounds of to
bacco to buy one of sugar, also that ten
pounds of tobacco would buy a barrel of
salt, now twenty pounds will hardly do
it. New Era.
Yes ; and the same day a sick Repub
lican reminded us that this wonderful
reduction in the price of tobacco had
taken rjlaco since Foraker's 'election.
He also called our attention to the fact
that in New York City, in a State pre
sided over by a Democratic" Governor,
everything that tho farmer has to sell is
a far better price than in any city in Re
publican Ohio. "Putting this and that
together" be was at a loss to Know wnat
the Republican farmers of Ohio had
made by electing Little Breeches Gov
ernor. People's Defender.
And we beg to remind you, Brother
Eylar, that Governor Hill and Governor
Foraker have no more to do with the
state of the market in their respective
states than Bill Macy's toes have with
the London Timet. The forces which
govern the market lie far deeper in tho
problem of demand and supply than
the feeble influence of a State Governor.
It is but natural that the New York pro-
duco market should offer higher prices
than those of cities in tho interior, as
New York is a shipping point and lies
nearer to the seat of demand. Some
times tho market is perceptibly affected
by a chango in the national administra
tion, resulting from universal distrust,
but to assert that the governor of a
State is responsible for the good or bad
condition of the market in his territory
is to show one's ignoranco of' the real
laws governing the market. Such a.cen
elusion must arise from a superficial ob
servatuin of causes and effects, and tho
terms superficial and Democratic are

lowing tribute to the able State Senator
from this district :.
Senator Pugsley. of Highland county,
promises' to be the next Congressman
from bis district, although it elected a
Democrat two years ago. Senator Pugs
ley is a man of wonderful popularity at
home and abroad, and if he is nominated
be proposes to resign his seat here.- He
will thus burn his bridges and go into
the fight to win or lose a fact which
will help his election mightily. Betides,
he will thus provide for the seleeUo of
his successor at the regular November
election. Pugsley realises the hard work
of making a canvass In a Democratic dis

The Republican ticket won a great vic
tory in Cincinnati last Monday. As the
Commercial Qaxcltt expresses It, "the
boodle gang is gono glimmering." Esh-
elby's majority is away up in tho thou
sands, and under the influence of the
now election law the tables are com
pletely turned against the boodlers, Tho
present vote shows how tho population
of Cincinnati is divided politically when
fraud and forgery are not allowed to
tamper with tho tally-sheets. Tally ono

Payment for Imaginary Corrnptlon.
Lafayette (Intl.) Sunday Tinw (Dftn.).
At tho count of tho public money in
Washington the funds were two cents
short. At tho count at tho sub-treasury
in New York there were five cents too
much. This leaves a credit for the Re
publican party of three cents on the
books of tho Democratic administration.
The difference should bo put into the
conscience fund as payment in full for
the Republican corruption which existed
only in tho imaginations of Democratic
Southwestern Ohio Normal School.
Tho prospect for a large attendance
next term at the Southwestern Ohio
Normal School is more promising than
at previous sessions. The principal,
Supt. Isaac Mitchell, has satisfied the
educational public acquainted with this
enterprise that the Normal at George
town, Ohio, is an exponent of the true
The pupils soon catch tho spirit of
energy and earnestness, a characteristic
of this institution, which urges them to
rely cheerfully on themselves, to make
themselves useful and agreeable in the
world ; to be thoughtful, to argue wise
ly, to unfold their talents, to shine, to
conquer, and to possess.
The great prosperity that has marked
tliis school during the past two years
has enabled the principal to make valu
able additions to his teaching force and
facilities for reference and illustration.
Tho expense of boarding being re
duced to a minimum for those desiring
it, brings a course of excellent educa
tional training within the reach of every
young man and woman.
Teachers and prospective teachers
who feel a need of more teaching power,
also prospective business men, mechan

AN OSTRICH FAKM.
Uow the Great lllrd at the Desrrt
Raised In America.
Eloven miles more were traversed be
fore we saw the welcome sight of the
high board fence which surrounds tho
ostrich farm, and which we had been
told to look for as the sign of the end
of our journey. As we' drew hear,
bourds bearing tho legend, "Ostrich
farm; visitors admitted only on Sundays
and Wednesdays,1' and placed in con
spicuous positions, met tho eyo. Wo
looked at each other in despair, for this
was Friday. "Ob. they can't be so
cruel as not to let us in, when we hare
driven twenty-two' miles to see the
ostriches," said ono hopeful one. We
came to a row of posts, and painted on
the fence near by was the mandate,
"Hitch horses here:" , "Had we not
better drive up to the house and find
out if we can get in before we hitch?"
asked "the grand inquisitor." '"Ob,
no; let us do just as we are bid," said a
timid shtor, with an eye to propitiating
tho "powers tnat be." so we dis
mounted and walked up to tho hotse,
lad to stretch our limbs after our long
rive. Wo were met by the inevitable
Chinaman, who in pigeon English gave
us to understand that the "boss" was
away, but ho thought we could see the
birds. He led us to the entranoo to the
lnclosure, and disappeared, leaving us
to wonder where he might have gone,
and try to catch glimpses, through the
chinks in the fence, of nil tho fascina
tions beyond. Presently he returned,
bringing with him a pleasant-faced
young man, who accepted our apolo
gies for coming at tho wrong time, and
expressed his willingness to show us
the interior of the inclosure.
"The doctor is away," he said, "but
lean show, you around." So saying,
ho unlocked tho gate, und the mysteries
were revealed. The largo space was
subdivided into many ditlcreut inclos-.
urea, in which were confined the os
triches, singly, in pairs, and in the
largest division of all wcro twelve, tho
native-born ostriches,, still, young,
sprcckled and ugly. "How old are
they when their plume is ready for the
first plucking?" wo asked. "From six
months to a year; the period varies."
We wero not allowed to approach the
fences which inclosed the feathered
strangers. "We have been obliged, to
make this rule, because Visitors would
Irritate and annoy tho Birds by teasing
them. Ladles would punch them with
their parasols, and gentlemen vcre
equally inconsiderate. We were also
obliged to charge an admission fee, in
self-protection. People came in crowds,
asking no end of questions, and mak
ing a great ileal of trouble. Fewer
come now that an entranco fee is
charged, and, as a rule, aro less trou
blesome." "How many are' there?"
"The dootor imported eleven pairs., at
a cost of about $1,000 a pair. One
killed his mate, which is tbe only acci
dent we have had. They aro all per
fectly well now and in excellent condi
tion. While he spoke we heard a strange
noise, like the subdued bellowing of a
bull. "That is one of them coming,"
aid our guide. "That fellow crows oil
We looked at the musically-inclined
ostrich. His long neck swelled to more
than twice its usual thickness, and be
sent forth crow after crow with great
apparent satisfaction. The' old fellow
who bad killed his mate seemed greatly
enraged by the . performances of .his
compatriot, and looked as if he. would
like to cross the division fence and
commit another murder. The fences

across?" we asked. "No; they can not
jump at all," we were told. "They are
very ill-tempered. Great caution is
necessary ia approaching them. Wo
feed, them upon alfalfa and green bar
ley, with corn once a day. Their -water
comes from an artesian woll."
"Does tbe dampness affect their
Slumes?" asked a lady. "1 think it
oea. Some process of curling and
dressing is necessary before plucking,
which is done about once in nino
months. We get fourteen plumes from
each wing." "Are these all?" was an
other question. "There are someyoung
ones in the incubating room, but they
are not shown to visitors. Very few
are allowed to enter that building. 1

.permitted to go inside; and we, have a

In Africa the bees have a very hard
time; for there man has a sharp-eyed,
active little friend to help him find their
carefully hidden honey. This little
friend is a bird, a rascally, shiftless
fellow, that not only fails to build a
home for. its little ones, but even goes
so far as to make other birds have all
the trouble and worry of bringing up
and feeding; them. Llko the cuokoo,
it puts its.oggs in tho, nests of other
The "honey-guide,';asit Js called, is
exceedingly fond of honey; or, if it can
not have that, is very well satisfied
with young bees. It is only about the
size of a lark; and so' is, not specially
fitted for encountering a swarm of bees
fighting in defense of their home. Onoe
in a while, it tries to rob a nest, but is
usually well punished for doing so.
The little bees seem to know that their
stings can not iriioro the feathcr-rer-ed
body of the bird, and accordingly'
they direct their attacks at the eyes of
the robber; and if the bird does not es
cape in time, it will be blinded, and so
perish of starvation.-
Howbver, the honey-guide Is seldom
so foolish as to run any such, risk. It
S refers to have some one else steal the
onev, and is content with a small por
tion for its share.
When it has found a nest, it darts
away in search of a man. As soon as
it sees one, it hovers over him, flies
about his head, perches near him, or
flutters here and there in front of him,
all the time chatting' vigorously. The
native knows in a moment what the
little bird means; and as' he loves honey
as a child does candy, only something
that is very important will prevent hfi
accepting the honey-guide's invitation.
When he is ready to follow, he whistles;
and the bird seems to understand the
signal, fdr.lt ,'at, once .flies on, for a
short distance and waits till the mani la
near, and then flies on a few yardfaW
