Excellent Article on Old
Landmark of Hillsboro
by Mrs. C. Roads.
LIFE OF OUR ANCESTORS
In Early Days is Entertainly De
scribed and Humorously
Compared With That of
The editor is indebted to Mrs. Con
ard Roads ror the following entertain
ing and instructive article on the Old
Clifton House which will be thorough
ly appreciated by our readers :
"EHEU FUQAOES !
O, Cllf ton House, the wreck of thee
Inspires diverse apostrophe.
Thy passing calls faint tear or sigh
Prom those who've -watched thy glory die ;
A monument to time Is gone
Strtpt down to one poor corner stone ;
No more Olympic savor soars
Adown thy phantom corridors.
No more is heard the laughter free
Of old time flower and chivalry
In vanished rooms of late consigned
To night hawks and to tiger blind,
That -made thy ruin seem to us
Some guosthesetged sarcophagus ;
And so thy walls to dust return
From which they sprung and slight concern
It gives those thoughtless hordes who are
Disposed to christen thee bete noire,
Thy day is done Pate rings thy knell
Hall then, Old Nuisance, and Farewell :
The razing of the old Woodrow
House Is a matter of congratulation to
the populace at large, but there are a
few sentimentalists as yet unstungby
the materialisticbug, ready to organize
asobfestover the destruction of an
historic landmark. Time has a pecu
liar way of hiking over the stepping
stonesof its dead self to higher things,
and it remains the province of Memory
to strew a primrose or two along the
course of its relentless Marathon.
Some day a boiler foundry may rise
Phoenix-like from the ashes of El Kar
nak and a brewery or soap factory
nourish on the wreck of Stonehenge.
It is the business of Progress to accom
pllsh such commercial miracles.
01 Josh Woodrow little guessed that
his substantial homestead would one
day Rive place to a modern armory.
Neither did he visualize one of his
kinsmen in the Presidential chair.
But even if his prophetic soul had
grasped these two developments, he
probably wouldn't have cared a tinker's
cuss. He was the man of the hour in
his own bailiwick, and the Issues of
that hour sufficed him. He wasn't
exercised over what the coming cen
tury might bring forth.
Travelers who came to his house,
came by coach or on horseback, and
took time to enjoy his hospitality.
Supplies, other than what the soil
yielded, came overland In ox-carts from
the Ohio river port at Ripley. Guests
gathered around the big fire place In
winter or out under the trees in sum
mer and talked about affairs almost as
vital to the public weal as those that
are being settled on the Highland
House utoop or in the Parker House
lobby today. Canal tolls, A B C media
tion, The River of Doubt and Mellen's
malodorous melange were matters un
dreampt of In their pioneer philosophy.
They discussed Perry's Victory, Water
loo, President Monroe and his as yet
undoctored doctrine. Hard cider,
rather than grape-juice policies engag
ed their interest. Birds, chickens and
Irog8gave orchestral accompaniment
to their deliberations, with an occa
slonal wild cat obllgato from the sur
rounding wilderness. Stars and pipe
bowls afforded the nightly lllumlna
tion. No screamlne motor siren, loco
motive or factory whistle fractured
the Arcadian solitude.

The Hillsboro Bank and Savings
Company moved into its new home on
The building has been entirely re
modeled and equipped and certainly
makes Ideal quarters for this popular
and growing Institution.
The floor is of white marble and the
walls are wainscoated with Vermont
marble to a height of three feet. The
counters are also of Vermont marble
with Verde Antique bases. The grill
work of the counters Is solid bronze.
All of the wood work Is solid mahog
any, Inlaid with white maple. Along
the walls are marble check desks with
plate glass tops.
At the east end or the building is a
pleasant and commodious waiting
room for women with desks and com
fortable chairs and toilet At the
southeast corner is the Directors room.
The new vault has fifteen inch con
crete walls which are reinforced with
railroad iron. The door is of the most
modern type; is six inches thick, being
the thickest door on a bank in the
county. It is of laminated Chrome
steel, protected by time locks and is
as near burglar proof as it is possible
to make. This Is proved by the fact
that the Bank is payingithe minimum
rate given by burglar Insurance com
panies. The canopy over the entrance adds
to the appearance of the building and
will be greatly appreciated by the pat
rons of the bank in Inclement weather.
The directors of the Institution
have spared neither time nor money
in remodeling and equipping Its quar
ters. The furnishings are beautiful
and artistic. Nothing has been over
looked that would add to the com
fort and accommodation of Its patrons
and facilitate the speedy and accurate
transaction of business. The three
large plate glass windows In the north
side Insure the best possible light and
the lobby is large.
The officers of the bank are to be
congratulated upon the beauty and
good taste displayed in the furnishing
and equipment of their new home.
Its patrons are now assured safety,
comfort and convenience in the trans
action of their business. No bank in
Highland county has a better or more
up to date home.
