should have been brought against the County
Commissioners, and not against the Infirm

was not responsible, as tbe Superintendent

that there was a warrant upon the apparatus,
that tbe machinery was defective, and that
the company must tberefore stand good for
repairs. The case was decided In favor of

HUM OF INDUSTRY
Buzzing Away in a Back
An Unassuming Firm with a Big
A long row of low sheds running back
from a neat-looking, two-story building,
Which, from the scarlet hue of Its exterior,
1 seems to have been a victim of last fall's Re
publican rejoicing. Such Is the description
of the warehouse of H.W.Wolf 4 Co., located
on an alley, opposite the depot, whose namo
might shock the truly fastidious. The build
ings were erected last May, on the Rltten
house pronerty, a lease of the lot having
been secured. From the outside, one would
hardly suspect that so much business Inter
est centered In the homely structure. In
side, we found the business manager, Mr. J.
Y. Dean, with his coat off and counting
hard cash very Intently. All around the
rear of the office room were stacked large
boxes, abd three half-ailed crates stood open.
Mr. Dean Informed us that he had then, on
band, Friday, about 2000 dozens of eggs and
would probably receive 2300 dozens before
the end the week.
Just back of this room are the poultry pens
and the slaughter house. The pens are ca
pable of holding about four thousand fowls
and as many as two thousand have given up
the ghost In one day in the slaughter house.
The busiest season In this department Is
irom a week before Thanksgiving to a short
time after New Year's day. Then some
thirty-five hands are employed and the
work of killing and dressing chickens and
tnrkles is carried on, on a large sca.e. The
slaughter-house Is fitted out with a blood-
trough and a furnace holding two large ket
tles and presents the appearance of an ama
teur sugar-camp. Here the fowls are killed
and "roughed," the latter process consisting
In removing the coarser feathers. The
feathers are preserved and dried and com
mand a better price on the market than the
plucklngs from live fowls on account of
their containing their downy feathers which
are left on the rural bird, for humanity's
sake. After the tragedy, the fowls are turn
ed over to a squad of colored women, who
deftly remove the pin feathers, and the
fowls are first subjected to a hot and then to
a cold bath. This brings the oil to the sur
face of the akin and gives tbe meat a good
color and tbe toothsome Insects are ready
for the market as dressed fowls.
In a single week the firm averages a ship
ment of 7000 dozens of eggs, and commands
the huckster trade of Highland and large
portions of Adams and Brown counties.
Poultry and eggs are shipped to Baltimore
and New York, chiefly to tho latter city.
But little is being done In the slaughter
house at present, although, some of the
animals suffer death each Monday. The
egg trade Is booming and large shipments
are being bandied.
Mr. n. W. Wolf Is a prominent business
man of Greenfield, a' member of council
there, and sustains a good reputation every
where. Ho embarked In the poultry busi
ness about fifteen years ago with a small
amount of capital and by care and thrift,
has amassed an enviable tortunc. Mr. Dean
lathe Junior member of the firm and is
known to us as a young man of amiable dis
position, energy and good business habits.
They are carrying on a protltable business,
as a few glances at their account book will
demonstrate, and as adding to the business
enterprise of our little city, they deserve the
recognition of everybody.
Eight Thousand Dellnrs Worth of Prop
Greenfield. April 11th.
At about 4 O'clock this morning fire was
discovered in the Dunlap building on the
northwest corner of Church and Washington
streets, and having gained full headway,
completely destroyed the property. S. W.
Allen's largo stock of boots and ohoes and
the outfit of S. R. Castleman's photograph
gallery, located upstairs, were destroyed.
The libraries, fixtures, furnishings, etc., In
the law offices of William Hugbey and Allen
Caldwell and In Dr. M. Dunlap's office were
also lost. Esquire Hugbey 'slaw library was
especially large and valuable and many
notes, mortgages and other papers were con
sumed. The losses, all told, as calculated by
parties who should know, amount to about
18,000. Tbe structure was a frame of light
pine and burned like paper. By six o'clock
nothing was left of tbe building and its con
tents save a glowing heap of ashes. Tbe
heaviest loss Is upon Mr. S. W. Allen, who
had Just got in a large stook of new goods.
The Insurance policies in tbe hands of tbe
several occupants cover about one-half tbe
total loss. The fire company did good work
In checking the flames, and through their
efforts the residences of Dr. W. H. Wilson
and William Adams and tbe building of Mr.
Henty Free, on the opposite side of the
street, were saved, though all three of them
were more or less scorched. Tbe heat was so
Intense as to crack the plate glass windows
In T. M. Elliott's building across tbe street.
When first discovered the fire was In tbe
north room , occupied by Messrs. Caldwell 4
Hngbey, but before sufficient force conld be
collected to do effective work, tbe flame had
spread all over tbe building. Some suppose
tbe conflagration to have been tbe work of
an Incendiary, while othera hold that tbe
fire might have been smouldering all night,
and burst out at last with Irresistible force.
Only a few articles of trifling value were
BAXANTIIA, April 10th, 1880.
On last Wednesday evening abontO o'clock
our citizens were startled by a terrific explo
sion, whloh shook every house In the town
to Its foundation. It was but a moment till
about all tbe people were out in tbe yards
and streets to ascertain the cause of the rum
pus. A dense cloud of steam just arising
from tbe mill of Cook & Holmes, explained
tbe whole matter, and a number of persons
were heard to'exclaln, "Mike'stboller Is
busted." Your correspondent was on the
spot In'less than two minutes and to nnder
.ake to describe the appearance of things
about the building would be futile. The
farther end of the boiler from the furnace
had given away, throwing a large stream of
steam and hot water several rods and de
molishing tbe building covering It. Tbe
boiler, which Is some 12 feet' long, was lifted
and moved forward through a strong wall
Into the apartment in whloh the grain is
stored and where the grinding Is done.
There it encountered some heavy timbers
and its course was changed to the right and
to the east end of the tiullding, through
which it went latterly, tearing out the entire
end of tbe building and landing seme four
or five rods distant, by tbe side of the Lees
burg pike. Wboat, corn, flour, and meal
were mixed with thesnow in rich profusion.
Six persons were In the building at tbe
time of tbe accldeut, but fortunately none
were hurt, as tbey were all In other parts of
the mill, than that through which the mon
ster missile passed, Tbe proprietors will be
compelled to suspend business on account of
tbe loss, uuless tbe citizens ef tbe town and
surrounding country come to the rescue by
subscribing liberally for tbe purpose of
making the needed repairs. A flouring mill
la a great convenience here, and Ibis one
etould be refitted and kept going.

OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
A Card from Professors Deggett aad
Tbe statements In last week's Gazette In
regard to our Schools are so plainly tbe ema
natlona of malice that they desurve no
notice. We believe that thegraduateaot the
Schools, the present members of tbe Board,
and all ex-members, the pupils of the
Schools, and the great majority of the
parents, know the charges to be unjust and
untrue. The writers have doubtless never
visited tbe scbools and know nothing of
their work, and in tbelr haste to gratify
private spite have made statements which
lc. this community can Injure none so much
As one evidence of the popularity of our
Scbools, we may mention the faet that in
our High Sohcol are alxty-one young men

GUTHRIE GETS THERE.
Tho Tolephono That Will Revolu
tionize tho World.
Fame nnd Fortune Wnltlng for a Lees
Mr. J. T Guthrie tins spent six or eight
years of unceasing toll on this wonderful
Invention, aud has at last succeeded In ob
taining a patent on transmitter nnd receiver
as well, and Is now prepared to place before
the American people for their Inspection one
of the most useful Inventions ever conceiv
ed by man. As stated In a former commu
nication, Mr. Guthrie tested It on a three
mile line, and the ticking of a watch could
plainly be heard. But this Is not all. It has
atso been tested on a thousand mile relay,
and communication can bo carried on at
that distance as distinctly ns though talking
face to face. This telephone will operate as
successfully fer thousands of miles as It will
for a distance of ono mile. It Is operated by
a direct current of electricity, and not by In
ducted currents, as are others, and no Induc
tion colls are needed. The articulation of
speech Is made by a natural and mechanical
disturbance of the current at the positive
and negative polls, which are brought near
to or In contact with the diaphragm. One
pole Is made of a close and contract natural
production of tbe earth, and Is a good con
ductor ; the other pole Is of an open and
porous nature, and not a good conductor.
Consequently, the natural and unnatural
poles make n natural disturbance, making
It tbe most sensitive transmitter possible,
The transmission is made by the disturbance
of the electrical current at the poles by open
ing and closing tbe circuit (as Is the case In
telegraphy), which Is done by his system by
simply speaking against the dlap.iragm,
which causes the current to open at every
sound uttered against It. This Is something
never before accomplished by the telephone
fraternity. Prof. Bell, of the Bell Telepnone
Company, has offered $1,000,000 to anyone
who would produce a telephone successfully
operated without the use of Induction coll,
and we are ready to say that Mr. Guthrie can
rightfully claim the money. This telephone
Is destined to take tbe lead of all others In
the near future, and we predict for Mr.Gnth
rle an Immense fortune out of this his most
useful invention.- Mr. Guthrie Is dally In
receipt of letters from all parts of the United
States from parties wishing to purchase the
entire patent, but he knows when be has a
good thing, and Is in no hurry to sell. The
rent of bis Instruments will be about two
dollars per month, aud we are glad to know
that the great telephoue monopoly of the
present day Is broken at last.

Illllsboro's Opportunity to Secure n Mam
Hearing that the Deuber Company was
about to move Its shops, Mr. Jacob Baylor
has been corresponding with the managers,
and In response to his Invitations the follow
ing letter has been received:
Newport, Ky April 10lh,18S0.
Messrs. Baylor s Son :
Gents We are in recelntof vnnrs. mlllnc

luuuuiaciuring purposes,anu in reply would

As soon as we can convenient! v illsnnsn of
or rent one of our present factories we will
build an addition to above to employ the
balance of our workmen. We paid In wages
last year some 300,000, and do a business or
$2,000,000, employing to-day 800 hands; this
wouiu auu with tbelr families at least 3,000
to tbe population of any town. We are
open to any proposition that may be made.
John c. Dueiieu,
The response has ngltated our public-
spirited citizens not a little, nnd movements
were at once set on foot to offer the company
some Inducement to bring Its establishment
to this place. The benefit to be derived from
having such a concern In our midst Is appa
rent to every thinking man, and at the
present writing the opportunity Is produc
ing much excitement on the streets. Prom
inent business men go about rattling coin In
their pants' pockets, and offering to give
various sums In order to secure so perma
nent a bonanza. At the meeting of Council
Monday evening tbe subject was up for dis
cussion and there was strong talk of ap
pointing a committee to go directly to Cin
cinnati and confer with the Company. This
action was finally postponed, and Mayor
Harman has called a citizens' meeting to
convene this (Tuesday) evening, and consid
er the matter, and If agreeable to make
some definite proposition to tbe Company.
