This alley appears on the village plat
but has been closed for years and Is
now used as part of the garden of
"William Zane. Solicitor Watts was of
the opinion that If the alley had been
closed over 21 years, which Is the case,
that adverse possession had run against

men stated that the cess pool they
were using had been condemned by the
State Board of Health and ordered
closed by May 20 and they asked imme
diate action. Mr Meneley, Mr. Brooks
bank and Solicitor Watts were
appointed a committee to look after
the matter with power to act.
A committee representing residents
on the west side of Main street were
present and asked council to take steps
to compel all persons ordered to make
walks In that neighborhood to build
them. The matter was referred to
Mr. Watts and he was instructed to
prepare necessary papers.
A resolution was passed, Mr. Head
voting no, awarding the contract to
Charles Mullenix to build sidewalks

erty owners had been notified to build

Death of Mrs. C. C. Walker.
Mrs. C. C Walker, aged 57 years,
died at her home here Friday, after a
long illness. The funeral services were
held Monday morning at 11 o'clock,
conducted by Rev. W. II. Shields.
Burial was made in the Hillsboro
The following sketch of her life was
reaa at the funeral :
The bright sun of May 1 was midway
In the West when the earthly eyes of
Emma Andrews Walker, wife of C. C.
Walker, closed and her eternal spirit
was softly, sweetly wafted to Its
Heavenly home of peace and joy.
She was born near Indianapolis,
Ind., and in early womanhood became
the wife of C. C. Walker, of Highland
county, Ohio. Their married life was
spent In this county. The past twenty
one years in Hillsboro that their
children might have better education
Mrs. Walker was a true wife and
mother in the broadest, holiest sense
of the wbrd. It never was self first
but ever her husband and children.
As all good women she never counted
anything she did for her family as a
sacrifice but as a love duty or a blessed
privilege. Truly they may follow in
her footsteps and thus be led to lasting
happiness. She was especially inter
ested In the education of her children
In both Christian and secular lines and
continually urged them toward excel
lence in their work. She was an
earnest, faithful and consistent mem
ber of Presbyterian church and loyal
to all Its Interests, never shirking any
duty that came to her.
Five children were given her, all of
whom were with her In the last days
of life Mrs. Will Rodes, Ernest and
Lynne, of Hillsboro, Mrs. John Mullln,
of Somerset, Pa., and Herschel, of
Jefferson Medical College, Philadel
phia. These with the husband, three
sisters, ' one brother and a host of
irienas are leit to rememDer her un
selfish life and to know that it was not
death but birth into a higher life that
caused the separation and that she is
now watching and waiting for the
reunion that will come soon.
Broken and suffering for months we
saw her so. Dropping from strength,
from time detaching slow. And scarce
ly could we know how earth's dark ebb
was Heaven's overflow.
ship" Just Published
By Mrs. D. F. Scott.
Mrs. Eliza J. Scott has written a
book entitled "Farm Life and Chris
tlanshlp." It is a work of 332 pages' and deals
largely with life in Highland county
In its pioneer days, some of it being
as told to the author by her parents,
but largely dealing with tier own life
in her youth.
The author In her introduction
states that the purpose of the book Is
First To try to perpetuate the
memory of our pioneer ancestors by
telling of their Christian integrity
and persevering Industry and by
showing the beauties, pleasures and
remuneration of farm life iGO and 70
years ago, when they were not nearly
so great as now.
Second She hopes to demonstrate
how much more blessed Is a Christian
and temperance community than is an
irreligious and intemperate one and
thus make a plea for Christian citi
zenship and temperance
Third It is hoped that enough of
the books may be sold to materially
help in purchasing a hall for the xiso
of the Woman's Christian Temper
ance Union and by them to be kept
open every day of the year for a rest
room for the women of Highland
county when they come to Hillsboro.
It Is Intended that every dollar net
profit from the sale of the books will
be given for that purpose.
The editor only received a copy of
the book Saturday and so far has only
had time to glance through it. But
what little he has read and the table
of contents is sufficient to show that
it will be both Instructive and inter
esting and its purpose Is a most laud
The book Is dedicated to Mrs. Scott's
grandchildren, Donald Durnell, Mrs.
Ilarley Wilkin and Mrs. Howard Tolle
and her great grandson, Daniel Scott
