tbat was ever held upon the grounds.

doubtedly; be tbe greatest display of stock,
the best speed horses, and the best fair, gen
erally, of any county fair in Ohio.
A number of fine speed horses will arrive
upon the Fair Grounds during the coming
week, and go lu training for tbe racing on
tbe 4th, 5tb, and 6th of August. Persons
Intending to' bring stock should procure

The statutes of the State expressly deolare
that "any person who climbs, Jumps, steps
or stands upon or clings or In anyway at
taches himself to any looomotlve, engine or
oar, upon any part of the track of a railroad,
unless lawfully, or by permission of tbe
railroad officers, shall be fined therefor not
more than twenty-five dollars."
The railroad company, having exhausted
all efforts, other than legal proceedings to
stop this dangerous practice, without suo
cess, determined to try what virtue there
might be In tho law.
A beginning was made at Blanohester and
several boys were arrested and fined, and
others are liable to be arrested at any time.
Tbe same course will be pursued at Cincln

Athens, and all other stations on the C. W.

stop violating the laws of the Btate.

The Society admitted Ihe Doctor to mem

upon him the degree of "8. O. A." As yet

Two boys, whoso names wo withhold, engsg
ed in a street fight near tbe center of town
last Saturday evening. We fear they were en

ought to have been more profitably employed.
George Pauley passed through here a few
days since, hauling the camp equipments of
four small boys tbat bad been tenting at the

Last Sundsy while James W. Spirgur and
wife, of the East End, were in tho country
someone entered their home and went through

as nothing else was taken or at least up to this
time nothing else has been missed. Only a
small amount of money was secured.
In the after part of Tnesday night as Will
Miller was passing the residence of George K.
Roads, on Main street, he heard the click of
the door latch and turning saw the front door
standing ajar and heard retreating footsteps
and supposed some member of the family was
np but it now turns out that no one belonging
to tbe honse was up and that the door was se
curely lockeu on retiring ana round open tbe
following morning. As to who the intruder
was remains a mystery.
some scalawag visited several houses on
West Main street Thursday night but was
overheard in his attempt to gain an entrance
and was frightened away.but finally went to J.
B. Gossett's and, finding a large window hoist
ed he walked in, unobserved, right past the
foot of the bed where Mr. Gossett and wife
were sleeping and it was not until he had gone
into tne upper part or tne nouso wnere the two
eldest sons. Gib and Ed were sleeping, tbat hU
presence wss known. They heard some one
walking around in the room and soon discov
ered that he was carrying a dark lantern that
only threw a very shadowy light upon objects
wiin wnicn ne came in contact ana tneir nrst
and probably correct thought was tbat a pro
fessional burglar was in the house, and that
the safest thing to do would be to lie still and
1st mm complete Ms search and retlro at bis
own time, which, in their estimation, was long
in comins. He finally nnlt the nremeata with
out making known tho object of bis visit only
so fsr as his conduot suggested it. If the
search was for money it was fruitless. On the
following morning a very large track could be
seen in tbe dust, leading to the window where
he entered tbe bouse and also where ho left tbe
house and started West, on the HUlsboro pike.
