being represented by prominent firms as
bidders. The Citizens' purchased the last
lot of bonds, amounting to $80,000, sold

it will be remembered there was such a

HOARD OF HEALTH.
Rules fer the Prevention of Disease
Recommended to Hlllslioro
Tho Hillsboro Board of Health met
on Monday afternoon to consider the
question of epidemio disease, and espec
ially, how to prevent the introduction
and spread of the terrible twin diseases
diphtheria and scarlet-fover, now so
prevalent in several localities of the
State. While in tho opinion of the
medical practitioners of Hillsboro there
appears no immediate danger of either
of these diseases in an epidemic form,
tho Board have deemed it highly impor
tant that ovqry safeguard should bo
mado use of by our citizens to keep the
town free from them, and the following
action was taken by the Board :
Resolved, By the Board of Health of Hills
boro, Ohio, that the observance of the follow
ing precautions and roles for the preveation
and spread of epidemio diseases in Hillsboro,
be earnestly recommended to the citizens :
1st. That all physicians, keepers of hotels,
and teachers in the schools in the village, re
port forthwith to the Mayor or Clerk every
case of diphtheria, scarlet fever, or other con
tagions, malignant or unusual disease coming
to their knowledge within the village or
vloinity. (The attention of the pnblto is
directed to the penalty provided by law and or
dinance against physicians, keepers of hotels
or boarding homes, persons employed on rail
road trains and hack lines, etc., for failure to
report as above.)
2d. When a child has sore throat with fever
or has other symptoms of either diphtheria or
scarlet fever, the same should be kept apart
from others nntil a competent physioian has
determined that the disease is not diphtheria
or scarlet fever.
3d. When a person is known to be sick
with diphtheria or scarlet fever, he or she
should be immediately separated from all
others, except attendants, and removed to a
room which shall be especially prepared for
4th. This room should be prepared by re
moving from it all superfluous furniture, car
pets, extra clothing, books, window curtains,
and other similar articles, not needed in the
room. It should be as remote as possible from
the family room, in an npper story if possible,
and care should be taken to secure an abund
ance of fresh air, without exposing the patient
to direct drafts.
5th. A card with the name of the disease in
large plain letters, should be placed in a con
spicuous position un the honse in which any
person is sick with such disease, and no child
should be allowed in or near such premises.
Oth. Mo one should be admitted to the room
except the necessary nurses and attendants.
7th. No food or drink which has been in the
sick room should be partaken of by persons
not sick with such diseases, and the dishes and
utensils should be washed separately.
8th. Under no circumstances should the
bed clothes or patient's body linen be mixed
with other soiled clothing or be admitted to
the general wash.
9th. All persons recovering from malignant
diseases are dangerous, and should not be per
mitted to attend school, church, or other pub
lio assembly, until in the Judgment of a care
ful pbyeician or (when afflicted with disease ot
a certain class contemplated in the ordinances
ot the village) a permit from the Board of
Health, for such purpose.
10th. No pubuo funeral will lie permitted
in the case of any person dying of diphtheria
or scarlet fever, and in no case shall any child
be permitted to attend such funeral.
11th. A visitor or caller at any house con
taining a patient sick with such diseases,
should bathe and change their clothing before
entering the presence of, or going where there
12tb. Care should be taken ot books, toys,
cats, dogs, or other playthings which havo
been handled by such patients.
13th. Beware of any one having sore throat
or any eruption. Do not kiss such person or
drink from the same cup, or put anything to
Sour mouth that has been touched or handled
11th. In case of any malignant disease
being prevalent, never permit a child to attend
a crowded assembly or to enter an unventllated
15th. See that your house, oellar, and yard
are kept perfeotly clean, and your living and
sleeping rooms well ventilated. Cleanliness,
pure air, and pure water are the greatest foes
16th. Teachers in nubile or nrivata schools
should not allow a child to attend school, if
any memoer oi its xamiiy is sick witn a malig
17th. Fbyslolans should report each day to
tho Mayor or Clerk, when attending cases of

Attempt at Assassination.
New Lexington, October 4.
While Dr. L. M. Greene, a prominent
physician of this place, was returning
home from a professional call Wednes
day night of last week a cowardly at
tempt was made to assassinate him in
the covered bridge by Hardy's mills just
north of Leesburg. We will use the
Doctor's own words, which are as fol
lows: "I had started home from a call
at William Morrison's, and was driving
along the LeeBburg and Sabina pike,
when suddenly a buggy containing two
men whizzed past roe and in a short
time slackened their speed, and in at
tempting to pass them one of them said,
'Who are you?' I told them, and they
started on at a rapid gait. I drove on,
and soon came to the bridge at Hardy's
mills. It was about half-past 8 o'clock,
I suppose. When I got about to the
middle of the bridge a man stepped out
and grabbed the bridle of my horse. I
asked him what he wanted, and he an
swered, 'Get out of there, G d d n you.
I want you I told him I did not pro
pose to get out unless there was some
necessity for it. With that he fired at
me, the ball passing close to me. He
then fired again, this time the ball pass
ing through my coat sleeve and through
the back rail of the buggy. I reached
for my revolver, and fired at the man.
He immediately cried, 'Kill him, G d
d n him, I'm hit! Just then another
man sprang from behind the buggy and
grabbed for mo. My horse gave a lunge
and the wheel knocked the man down,
and I think ran over him. I arrived at
Leesburg as soon as possible and gave
A great many conjectures are made as
to the cause of the attempt made on the
Doctor's life. Some think: they were
tramps after money,, but they went
about it in a queer way for money, as
no demand foi money was made. The
general impression is that it was some
persons who had been watching for him
and intended to kill him. But why any
one Bhou.cl.want to kill him is a mystery,
as he is a very quit, peaceable citizen,
and did not know he had an enemy in
the world. The Doctor never carried a
revolver in his life until about ten days
ago, when he was warned and told if he
did not carry one he had better, It is
almost certain that had he not been
armed and fired just when he did, they
would have killed him sure. It is hoped
the rascals will speedily be brought to
The Chautauqua Circle.
The great popularity attained by tho
"Chautauqua System" and tho general
recognition of its usefulness as n method
whereby anyone who desires to do so
may acquire a comprehensive knowledge
of all the branches of study included in
tho ordinary college curriculum (except
ing only mathematics) sufficiently attests
The aim of the Chautauqua Literary
and Scientific Circle, as stated by its pro
moters is to "promote habits of reading
and study in nature, art and science,
and in the several branches of literature,
ti connection with the routine of daily life so
as to secure to those who pursue its
course of study, tho advantages that
otherwise could only bo obtained by rol
training." The Circle is, in fact, "a school at
home," a school wherein is afforded tho
largest and best opportunities for acquir
ing a fund of information and general
knowledge that will enable the student
to mingle on ear-," terms with the best
educated people and to adorn tho best
Tho system adopted by it is truly ec
lectic, combining as it does, the best fea
tures of approved collegiate methods of
In many respects it is superior to the
regular collegiate system, which binds
tho student inexorably to a conventional
course of study that compels him to de
vote four of the best years of his life to
the labor of acquiring a knowledge of
the dead languages, in order that ho may
bo able to read, in a very imperfect way,
the older classics in the original text.
A large majority of the students in
our colleges and seminaries pursue theso
studies after a dilettante fashion that
precluded them from deriving any sub
stantial or enduring benefits from the
classical course. To such an extent is
this truo that it fully justifies the remark
of ono of our prominent educators that
"to moat college graduates the perusal
of the Chautauqua translations of the
worksof Livy, Hensphen.Virgil, Homer,
Cicero and Plato would be not very dif
ferent from forming acquaintanceship
with authors previously unknown."
The Chautauqua Course includes the
Latin and Greek classics in English the
tianslations are of the best and the writ
ings of the great Statesmen, poets, his
torians and philosophers produced by
Athens and Rome in their palmiest days,
as interpreted by our best translators,
have, for the student a charm and in
terest they cannot have in the original
text, for the interest in the subject (in
the original) is abated by the excess of
effort required to comprehend meanings
couched in the unfamiliar phraso of a
strange and peculiar idiom.
In addition to the classics mentioned,
tho best works of a selected list of mod
ern authors, and excellent works on
mental and moral science and political
economy form a part of the required
readings, while the series of text-books
for instruction in the physical sciences
are not excelled by any in use in the
best colleges, so that anyone who chooses
may, by attentive perusal of these works,
acquire a first-rate, general knowledge
of Chemistry, Natural History, Astron
omy and Geology.
Readings upon tho current topics ef
the day, relating to literature, art and
science are also required. These sub
jects are discussed monthly in that
most valuable and instructive of all mod
ern magazines, The Cliautauquan, a peri
odical that keeps its readers abreast of
the times in all matters that relate to
the subjects mentioned.
Any family supplied with this periodi
cal and possessed of a full set of Chau
tauqua text-books has the satisfaction
that results from the ownership of a val
uable and complete library for study and
Most persons who have not enjoyed
the benefits of collegiate training, usually
feel, in the presence of those who hate,
that they are placed at a most serious
and embarassing disadvantage.
But the Cliautauquan, who, with or
dinary diliigence, pursues the course of
reading prescribed by the Circle, will
never have occasion to suffer in any
presence from a humiliating conscious
ness of inferiority for he will find him
self well equipped to become an equal,
and interesting, as well as appreciative
composition for the learned. And,
wherever a well organized and well at
tended Chautauqua Circle exists there
also will be found a community living
in an atmosphere of culture and refine
ment and characterized by the moral
and social worth and literary and artis
tic tastes of its members.
This organization is made doubly at
tractive by reason of its social character
and the facilities it offers for the best
development of the social (as well as
the mental) faculties of its members-
bound together as they are by the strong
est ties of intellectual affinity and a com
munity of interests and tastes that qual
ifies them for the highest enjoyment of
refined social intercourse.
The character, aims and methods of
the Chautauqua Circle secure to it a de
gree of permanence and stability of or
ganization not usually attained by liter
ary societies outside of colleges or large
cities where professional and amateur
literateurs organize for mutual aid and
The literary socities, art circles and

One of the most enjoyable events of
the season in the way of a surprise was
tendered to Miss Mary F. Larkin at. her
home one mile north of Samantha last
Friday, in honor of her birthday. About
10 o'clock the people began to pour in
from all directions, and by noon fully
two hundred people had congregated to
participate in the sumptuous dinner
which had been prepared for the occa
sion. After the crowd had assembled at
the tables, which had been erected in
the front yard, Rev. Pumphrey, in a few
well-chosen remarks, presented to Miss
Mary an elegant gold watch, which had
been prepared for the occasion by her
brothers and sisters and Mr. Isaac Lar
kin and wife.
The afternoon was spent in social
games by both old and young, and all
seemed to enjoy themselves, and as the
people left for their homes they all ex
pressed themselves well satisfied with
the day, and wishing that Miss Mary's
birthday would be celebrated oftener.
