Editor News-Herald : Please say in

gas has thus far escaped from the Wil

burner in my room at the Midland
Hotel. I was not affected by the gas at
all, and was not assisted down stairs,
nor was any extra attention offered or
asked. While I am under obligations
to Mr. Loche, Coi. Andrews, and other
employes of the house for their timely
interference in what might have been, I
do not like to be made the subject of

Telephone Fire Alarms.
Mr. H. W. Rannells, of the telephone
exchange, has placed before the City
Council a plan for establishing a system
of telephones to be used as fire alarms.
His object is to establish a telephonic
communication between the different
parts of the city and the Fire Depart
ment So that in cases of fire in the
suburbs mush valuable tlmo may be
saved in communicating the intelligence
to the company. It is thought that six
instruments, properly distributed over
the city, will be sufficient for this pur
pose. Mr. Kannells says that by special
rates for corporations he can furnish
these telephones, complete, put them in
and keep them in repair all for $30 per
year each. This would make the whole
cost of the system $180 per year. The
instruments can be placed in stations
prepared for the purpose, or in private
residences, which would probably be
more practicable. They can connect
dirertly with the Fire Department at the
engine house, or they can pass through
the exchange, as may be desired. The
opinion of the Councilmen, taken indi
vidually, seems to be that the plan is a
good one, but they would hesitate to
place it in operation unless petitioned
for by the citizens. The business men
of the city, as far as heard from, would
favor the movement, and a petition to
establish the s vstem would receive manv

Death or Mr. Benjamin Pnvsley.
Mr. Benjamin V.Pugaley died at his res

evening of last week at eleven o'clock.
Mr. Pugsley was taken sick about the
first of September with malarial fever.
He was not regarded as dangerously, ill
until a few days before his death when
his stomach refused to perform its func
tions. Death was caused principally
from starvation. Mr. Pugsley was born
in the State of New York, June 20th,
1819. He was married in 1844 to Miss
Nancy E. Boyd, daughter of Dr. John
M. Boyd, one of the pioneer physicians
of Ohio. Mrs. Pugsley died in 1870,
since which time Mr. Pugsley has re
sided with his son-in-law, Mr. H. W.
Spargur, of this city. Mrs. Spargur be
ing the only one of a family of three
to survive her father.
He read law with the late Hon. Nel
son Barrere and was admitted to the bar
in this State, but never practiced his
profession. Prior to tho death of his
wife he was engaged in farming, dealing
in grain etc., since that time, however,

Let olliers "blow" and bluster loud
Of shoddy stocks, in which they 'r proud,
And glory with a shameless grace '
'Beut sales which only have a place
In fiction sheer.
We'll sing, in accents clear and true,
Of our vast store, of goods all new
Now open to the public gaze,
Commending universal praise
From far and near.
Our goods excel in all that goes
To show the ready skill of those
Who make. The stock from which they'r
Is ever of that honest grade
Which stands the test.
Our customers are friends, and they
Are doing daily what they may,
With right good will, to blaze the way
For all who want for what they pay
The most and best.
Our sales are large and bona fide.
All the best trade our goods have tried
Are happy in the thought that we
Can do great good to all who're free
To buy for cash.
Then come to us when goods you want.
Our flag's unfurled, and it will flaunt
Triumphant in the autumn air,
Where what is done is on the square.

The Convention was called to order at
1:40 by the temporary Chairman. The
report of tho Committeo on Permanent
Organization was called for, but the
Chairman of the Committee not being
present the committee was not ready
to report. The committee on credenti
als was then asked to report. The Sec
retary of this committee was not at hand
and therefore they could not report.
However after little delay tho chairman
of the first named committee made his
appearance and announced the commit
tee on permanent organization ready to
report. The report was as follows:
For Chairman, Captain E. M. DeBruin;
for Secretary, A. Z. Blair; for Assist
ant Secretary, Joseph Johnson.
The report was promptly accepted by
the convention and Captain DeBruin
was called to the chair. Ho thanked
the convention for the honor they had
conferred upon him. He said that he
was proud of his position in tho conven
tion and proud that he was a member of
the Democratic party. He likened the
Democrat to the wise man who built his
house upon a rock and the floods came
and the winds blew and the rains ' de
scended and beat upon that house and it
fell not. He also likened Democracy to
truth whlch,'crushed to earth, will rise
again. He said it didn't hurt a Demo
crat to be defeated he was used to it
he didn't look for anything else.
He touched on General Denver's war
record and concluded with an apology
for the General's San Francisco escapade
by saying that the people in this part of
the country regarded killing an editor a
justifiable homicide and that the perpe
trator would be acquitted by any jury
which could be empaneled.
Tho reports of the committees on cre
dentials and rules and order of business
were severally read and accepted. Nom
inations for auditor were then in order.

Before the balloting began Mr. San
ders arose and said that he had told all
who had talked to him about it that he
did not want the nomination and re
quested the gentleman who presented
his name to withdraw it. This proposi
tion met with loud protestations from all
Sarts of the convention and as Mr. San
era did not withdraw it himself his
name was left before the Convention.
Balloting was' about to berin when
Judge Morrow arose and begged leave
to nominate Kobert C. McMullen, of

season. If you wilt allow us to judge, we will
say that some of the best cooks In this part of
the country tried their hand in preparing for
this occasion. Forty-nine large cakes adorned
the table; the Prince of Wales took the rod
ribbon, Urand-duke waa also a very fine and
rioh cake. Well does Brother Galbreath de
serve from bis churches the respeot shown
him. He commenced bis pastorate here seven
years ago, under very discouraging oircum
stance. The churches were ..'most dilapi
dated, the membership very weak :d scatter
ed, and a dormant state spiritually. Now one
new church, and all or his charges are in a
flourishing condition. After dinner everybody
went to the oburob, where the exercises were
commenoed with muslo, and prayer by Bev.
Pollard, then a speech by Ber. Galbreath,
father of Ber. J, O. Galbreath, after which
36.85 in cash waa presented, at a token ot
respeot from his many friends, and s Bible
appendix (several smaller thing were presented
durisgtheday). Then followed speeches by
Ber. Pollard, Dr. Wharton, of Iowa, and
George GUaore, then singing and -H-miml
with the benedlotlon. All left feeling that it
bad bees s very happy anniversary.

Our Fair opened on last Wednesday with
very promising prospects, and with as fine
weather as could have been wished for. It
was dusty and somewhat disagreeable in that
respeot, but the dust did not keep the people
away nor in the least discourage the inflow of
stock for exhibition. Everything looked boom
ing, and the Fair Board looked pleased at the
fine prospect ahead. Wednesday closed with a
bright setting tun, and bid fair for a fine day
on Thursday. But alas for bright prospects.
About four o'clock Thursday morning a heavy
breeze set in and brought with it a heavy rain,
and it continued to rain up to noon, making a
gloomy prospect for any kind of a display out
of doors. Tht clouds thinned and parted
bout noon, and the sun appeared again,
which inspired new hope in all concerned.
The Board held a call meeting on the Grounds
Thursday, to determine whether or not to hold
the Fair over Saturday, but as the weather
cleared np and the prospect seemed good for a
bright day on Friday, they decided to go on
and close np on Friday. We walked over the
grounds and took a hurried view of all there,
and will say Floral Hall was about aa full of
fine articles aa we ever saw it, and the displays
of all kinds were very attractive, plainly show
ing that our people went in to make the Fair
a success as tar at their contribution waa con
oerned. The exhibition of flowers and fine
plants was great, and If we art capable of
Judging, tar exceeding tka displays of former
years. Tht show of horses, fine cattle, bogs,
sheep, and poultry, was very good. Among
theflne cattle, Mr. T. Willis had a line blooded
bull, one year old, that weighed 1,515 pounds :
he was a daisy in the cattle line. Tbtdtoplay
of bogs was so great that some twenty or thir
ty new pent had to be built. One ot the moat
delicate porkers weighed 900 pounds, and two
or three others tipped the beam at 600 pounds
each. Tht display of sheep wu about up to
tha average exhibit hers. In tht speed ring
tht trotting and pacing races were far below
the average races seen at this place The
crowd ot people on tht ground tht last day,
was wonderful. From tne grand stand the
whole place looked like a sea of facet. The
Board will coma through all right, despite tha
rain on Thursday. In otoslng wa must not
forget the Greenfield band. We beard a
stranger say that he bad attended twenty-fiva
fain this season, and that tht Greenfield Fair
had the best muslo of any of them.
