also contains a powder-horn used by a
Lieut. Grant, of the first Royal Highland
Regiment, who was killed at Saratoga in
1777, and was purchased from an Indian
after the battle. Not less interesting is
the "cheveaux-de-frize" placed in the
Hudson to prevent the passage of British
ships in the samo vear. ind the silver
spur of the brave, but ill-fated Major
Andre, which was contributed by the
Van Wert family, dcscendents of one of
his three captors; but more interesting
still are locks of Lafayette's and
and fragments of Washington's first cof-
w fin. Less suggestive of pandering to the
proverbial morbid curiosity of Americans
is the piano formerly owned by General
Clinton. It was made in London, long
beforo the revolution and is exceedingly
primitive in appearance. It has for
companions a sofa, probably quite as
ancient. There are letters written by
Washington, Hamilton, Burr, Lafayette,
Lord Sterling, Baron Steuben, John
Hancock, Clinton and others less distin
guished, besides documents and papors
of various kinds, from pay-rolls of
various companies, to Montgome'ries
orders at Quebec in 1775.
THE ELLISON 1'JU'ERS
wero contributed by Thos. Ellison, jr.
They refer princlply to an elder Thos
Ellison, one of the early sottlcrs, and
a militia colonel at tho outbreak of the
revolution. Ho was retirod by the re-
organization of the militia in 17751
Trior to 1772 ho was Deputy Chiof
Ranger for Ulster county, his duties giv
ing him police authority over horses,
cattle, etc., running at large in "the
Queen's woods," unlnclosed lands of
the county. Tho papors embrace his
com missions, an account of the expedi
tion for the relief of Ft. William Henry,
official circulars and letter from Gov.
Tryon, and other documents.
The important letters preserved at the
old headquarters will alone furnish ma
lerial for a long letter, and I forego fur

along tho mighty rock bound tissue
through which tho Columbia dashes
itself toward tho billows of the Pacific,
will ever say that the scenery of tho
Hudson is superior to any other 'in
America. The relative beauties of tho
scenery of the two rivers I have often
heard discussed, but never having seen
that of the Hudson before, I always held
my peace. Now that I have seen both,
I must say there can scarcely be a com
parison between the two. I don't be
lieve it possible for any scenery in tho
world to surpass that of the Columbia.
It was grander than anything I had im
agined. The Hudson's beauty is tho
Deauty ot quaintness; tho Columbia's
beauty is the beauty of grandeur. The
Hudson suggests Rip VanWinklo and
Nick Vedder and old Dutch pioneer

suggests fairyland, and where rough

Has Sometliing to Say on
" tho Liquor Question.
A Plcn for a County Local Op
"Well, what are you going to do about
it?" A pertinent question asked by
one in your columns of last week, fol
lowed by some truthful remarks, that
should go home to eVery candid mind.
What we would liko to Bee "done
about it" would bo to havo a local option
law, thnt each county in the State might
have on opportunity of expressing
through tho ballot box, whether intoxi
cants shall be sold within the county.
Don't confine tho law to ton ns and vil
lages, but give every voter nn opportu
nity to express his sontiments. It is a
fundamental principle which underlies
our freo institution!., and tho rock on
which our government rests, that the
majority hav.e a right to rule, while re
specting tho rights of tho minority.
It is a proposition that nono will even
uaro deny. Yet we as voters have never
had a fair opportunity of expressing our
will on tho sale of intoxicants in our
midst. True, we had "the privilege of
voting on the constitutional amendment
prohibiting the manufacture and sale of
ardent spirits over tho State of Ohio,
and a splendid vote was polled, yet it
accomplished nothing, only to show
what an army of voters in the State
were opposed to the rum traffic. Since
which time the ostensible opposition to
the traffic has degenerated Into a cru
sade of Indiscriminate abuse against all
but tho elect few. Wo say this in all
kindness, for wo need ail the forces that
right, justice, and humanity can enlist
under her banner, to arrest and roll
back the fearful tide that is carrying
down to destruction all that makes life
dear "to so many" and endangers all.
Why ! if wo can't get all, take nothing j
nay worse, join to turn tho monster
loose unbridled, to prey upon all com
munity. Tho majority will rule. Then why re
fuse the good we can attain, because tve
can't dictate to tho whole State. Give
tho army of temncrance men that vntpA
for Constitutional prohibition a chance
with a local option law, and not moro
than five counties in the State, but what
would put tho brand of condemnation
on the traffic. Nay more, when that
verdict is pronounced, it would not re
quire an army to enforce tho decree.
Then why not havo a local option law
by counties in our State. (Ovor a less
extent of territory would not bo best.)
What party, or what class of men would
dare to say, the people have no right to
express their sentiments on any ques
tion through the ballot box.
Let us demand such a law at the
hands of our Legislature. Let us drag
tho greatest moral question before our
people out of the miro of politics, and
let every man have a chance to vote his
principle, untrammeled by side issues
or uninfluenced by any political tie,
however old or binding. History
should teach us that no amount of per
sonal abuse, no governmental oppres
sion or penalty, can comnel nn honest
man to change his convictions. Such a
cause as temperance needs no such
weapons to advance its interest or in
sure its success. Its consummation may
seem slow ; its success may seem jeopar
dized, by champions whoso fire is im
bibed from the ale bottle. Yet Israel
groaned in bondage four hundred years
Detoro deliverance came. Tho black
man of our countv eroaned under the
lash for one hundred and forty years
before his shatkels wero broken. But
let us labor and nrav. that ire mav Roon
see the hydra-headed monster, intem
perance, sink from our sight as lead in
the mighty waters. BnuTus.

The City Lad.
The following poem Is intended to
retaliate for G. H. L.'s effusion on "tho
farmer boy." "Elmoro" should not get
loo wrathful on this subject. G. H. L.
Is a farmer boy and knows what ho is
talking about, and every member of tho
New s-Hkium staff enjoys tho distinc
tion of having been born In the country,
wo zealously defend the farmer boy,
put "Elmore"' exaggerates somewhat in
his description of "the city lad." En.
You can seo him whon you go to town,
On his upper lip Is a bunch of down,
Like the stubble of a field fresh mown.

He makes bellovo ho has tho "chink ;"
He's a millionaire so you would think.
In high-toned shops he takes his drink.
The city lad.
He has a lisp whene'er ho talks ;
rie jests at an tne country gawks,
Their actions and their language mocks.
The city lad.
On election day goes to the polls,
votes oiten, ccts with iol v souls.
Who empty scores of hot punch bowls,

When evening comes, he's full of

Or, with tho bummers, of his "whirls."
The city lad.
He's an ardent lover of the fair ;
He woareth pompadour his hair ;
Sometimes is sensible 'tis rare.
The city lad.

Study Preserves Health.
Ranke, tho German historian, who
died recently, was over ninety years of
age. Ho lived and moved and had his
being in his study. He rarely went
anywhere. He scarcely ever took any
exercise. His bodv had come to hn n
frame for carrying his mind, which was
capable of profitable labor to tho last.
Such instances are rare. It in imnnllv
necessary for a scholor to preserve his
strength by exercise and variety of cus
tom. But, on the other hand, so fnr
from being injurious, the student's tho
ininaere occupation tends directly to
the support of the bodily life. Now
and then when ho pursues that occupa
tion in flagrant violation of the laws of
nature, as Carlyle did in his youth, he
contracts dyspepsia, as did that crabbed
philosopher, and suffers from it all his
life. But statistics tell us that, in the
main, literary people ministers, whose
business is study, have longer lives than
any other class of men.
A well furnished mind is a resource
to its owner. A well trained mind is a
defence. Right and wise training is
something infinitely beyond the memo
rizing of a few interesting facts, or tho
learning of a little music and a little
French or history. It makes the mind
at once strong and flexible. It is com
pared to the uncultivated mind, as the
fineness and flexibility of a Damascus
blado to common pig iron. The same
thickness of pic iron will break and ha
useless far sooner than tho rapier of
finely tempered steel. So a mind, yet
in tho rough, not having learned to
bend itself to continued application or
pressure, will break and give way and
with it the body under the strain of
life's duties and trials, far sooner than a
mind which by long and faithful train
ing has acquired the habit of bending
and then regaining its shape without
One would think, to hear tho doctors
talk, that all the ills that girls are heirs
to, were solely traceable to study. Now
I suppose there are really a few girls in
the world who have studied too much.
But they are so few that it would take a
microscope to find them. I have known
some thousands of girls and women, in
my life, who went to school, and I can
nowf only think of two who wero in
reality injured by too close application
to study, and in one of these cases, it
was in great part her habit of sleeping
only three or four hours nightly, that
did the mischief and unhinged the
brain. I never heard that the brain
was overloaded with its amount of
learning. The natural causes of illness
of growing'girls who go to school are
many j as many as to men and women','
boys and girls who do not go to school,
but who aro also frequently ill.
But from the easiness with which
everything is set down to study, one
might rsuppo80 that mental exercise,
which is as necessary to well-being as
physical activity was in truth the only
thing which could jar tho delicate
machinery and disturb tho health.
Every ailment is attributed to study
and nothing is said of late .hours. Ext
cessive novel reading, going into general
society top young.irregular hours for eat
ing, and the manifold other causes
which make study hurtful, which In
itself is beneficial to the body aa well aa

Ohio State Fair.
TheTliirty-Sevcnth Annual Ohio State
Fair will be held on the New Fair
Grounds at the city of Columbus, on
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thurs
day and Friday, August 30th, 31st, and
September 1st, 2d, and 3d, 1880. The
State Board of Agriculture is putting
forth unusual efforts to make this inau
gural exhibition on the new grounds a
grand affair, noteworthy in tho history
of the State. Tho success that has
crowned the efforts of the Board in the
past, thus making it necessary and pos
sible to provido and lay out new grounds
and erect buildings in every way suited
for a grand exposition such as Ohio is
ablo to make, is sufficient guarantee
that tho coming fair, on the beautiful
now grounds, with ample exhibition
buildings of modern design, will be fully
and handsomely represented in each of

Fast Rneeg.Flne Horses, Lots of Fakirs
and a Magnificent Display in
Hillsboro wore a fairy look "all last
week. There Hero blind fiddlers on the
public square, pop-corn and ice-cream
stands in the court house yard, "babies"
to throw at on the corner of Short street
and people, people everywhere. Livery
stables had a run of custom and .hotels
were brim full. Amid tho rattlW nf
wheels and the bellowing of hick-drivers
wo went rumblinirout to the renter
of attraction on tho Fair Grounds. Dust
rose in clouds behind us and people
gathered In crowds beforo us. Tho peo
ple were in the dust and very presum
ably there was dust in the people.
As early as Wednesday evening one
could safely predict the success of the
fair of '86. Such a display of fine stock
in every department, such satisfactory
racing and so large an attendance have
seldom, if over, been seen on the Hills
boro Fair Ground.
"It's as good as tho State" Fair," re
marked a countryman under a broad
brimmed hat, as he sat watching with
interest the graceful movements of Lady
de Jarnette, under the reins of her skilful
driver. So beautiful is the annearanno
of this famous mare that the Committeo
on Light Harness awarded her the first
premium after a few seconds of tlnllW.
ation Thursday afternoon.
"Wonder why tho Fair Board don't.
have these seats cushioned with nlnsli?"
queried a weary looking man wearing
grizzled side-whiskers and a frown.
There was no response, bat a dozen peo
plo looked at him approvingly, as if he
had voiced the problem that was per
plexing them. Sitting on tho soft sido
of an oak plank, with an ugly woman's
parasol gouging a hole in tho small of
your back and swallowing mud powders
at short intervals does not rank high in
the scale as a pleasant pastime.
The races of Wednesday afternoon
were exciting on account of the number
of horses in the ring and also of the close
ness with which each heat was contest
ed. A 2:45 trot and pace, mixed, was
first on tho program, three minute trot,
second, and a running race of a mile

Before a fair start could be gotten in
the running race, Lady McCann, a
pretty but vicious little mare, mani

and finally succeeded in running him
against the fence and bruising his leg.
But another rider was found, who was
able to control her and the race pro

she came up as rear guard at tho conclu
