THE VINTON RECORD.
McARTIIUli, OHIO,
THURSDAY, FKU. 20, 1873.
The County Infirmary Job.
We understand it is claimed
ly the blowers and strikers fc
the ring that the law requires
but four week's notice to be
given lor proposals for building
on Infirmary. Even grant this
claim, and the law has not
been complied with; for the
notice was given January 9th,
and the bids opened January
31st. If they can torture
that into four weeks notice, it
will be no trouble for them to
torture the plans and specifi
cations now on file at the Au
ditor's office into an old barn of
a house, which will take from
five to ten thousand dollars to
make it habitable after it
comes from the hands of the
contractor. According to our
arithmetic, from the 9:h to tbe
31st of January, is just three
weeks and one day.
And there is yet another
particular where the law has
been violated, w believe both
in spirit and letter. Before
entering into any contract for
a building or bridge which is to
cost more than $1,000, four
weeks' notice must be given of
such intention, so that the peo
ple may petition for or against
the expenditure. This notice
was pretended to have been
given in connection with the
advertisement for sealed pro
posals. But the Commission
ers had alreadv spent $80, we
believe is the amount, on ac
count of that building before
ever one word of this notice
had been given to the public,
having employed and paid Mr.
Oilman to make drawings, be
fore they had naked the pub
lic if they wanted a $10,000
house. They decided the whole
matter within thcmselvep, paid
one bill against the Infirmary
building, and then rushed
throush a three week's notice
for petitions for and against
the building, and for proposals
at J.be same lime.
It is evident that the law
contemplates a four week's no
tice for petitions ior and
against a building of this kind
before any expense is incurred
on account of such building.
That after such notice as this
has been given, if it is decided
to erect a building costing
$10,000, the Commissioners
may then employ an architect,
and after another four week's
notice tor proposals, may enter
into a contract.
Now, why does the law di
rect that this notice shall be
given in this manner? Evi
dently, so that the public may
have ample time to inquire in
to these transactions and peti
tion for or against before the
matter is consutnated, and so
that it will be noised about
through the whole adjacent
country, and 6very person
whose business it is to build
houses will know that such a
house is to be built and will be
prepared to ofler his bid, and
and the people will thus secure
the building at a fair price.
Now, why was this notice
rushed through with such in
decent haste, there being but
three weeks and one day that
the public knew of any inten
tion of the Commissioners to
build, before the whole matter
was consumated and the seal
ed proposals opened? Does it
appear that they were afraid
some person outside of tbe
ring would find out about this
building, and would make a
bid on it, or does it Appear that
they strove to secure bidders?
The facts are before you, tax
payers. It is for you to judge.
The Democratic Enquirer is
as silent as the grave on tbe
Infirmary question. As the
Enquirer is the organ of tbe
ring, it follows that the trans
action will not bear a public
defense, and that the ring is
anxiont to hush the thing up,in
'the hope that the people will
forget It before they come
around again in the Fall ask
ing for another lease of power.
Trees For The Infirmary.
Editor Record: I notice in
last week's Record that the
Commissioners have let a con
traci to J. & W. Oold to plant
300 apple trees on the infirma
ry farm at 20 cents each. At
the time of the meeting of
Commissioners when the pro
posals for the Infirmary build
ing were to be opened I offered
to furnish them all the apple
and pear trees they wanted
for the Infirmary, from the
Troy Nurseries, at 8 cents a
piece the frees to be fully
warranted to live, and to bear
fine fruit. I also offered to set
them at three cents each, raak
ing 11 cents a piece for (he
trees Bet in the ground and
warranted. I also said at the
same time to them that I did
not want to hear of them buy
ing at any greater price. Mr.
Kelley wanted to buy at that
price, and I don't know that he
consented afterwards to buy at
20 cents, of Gold.

James Madison McGillivray,
Att'y at Law, late Prosecuting
Attorney and would-be Mem
ber of Constitutional Conven
tion, has vacated his office in
the Court House, and will
hereafter rent his office and
furnish his own coal like other
attorneys. It i3 right and prop
er now that the books should
be footed up between James
Madison and the people of this
county whose bouse he has
been using, with peiquisites,
since the first Monday in Jan
uary, 1872. The man who lives
to see the amount of that bill
handed into the Commission
ers has a wonderfully long
lease of life. The mere triflle
of a dollar or two which will
be required to clear up the
dirt which he lenves, will, of
course, be paid by the Com
missioners. And so we go!
Who cares for expend! The
people are rich, and love to be

"There has been a healed
discussion at Bethel, over in
Pike county, as to the shape
and motions of the earth. The
Christian Union (Nasbyite)
church members contending
that the "Scripter" teaches
that the earth is flat and square
and that the sun, moon and
stars, go clean around the earth
every twenty-four hours. The
members of that church no
doubt think that all who do
not believe the earth to be flat
and "squar," are lost sinners."

The editor of the Noble
county Republican has been
treasuring up these many
years, as a precious relic,
an old shell from the battle
fields of the Rappahannock.
On one of the recent; cold
days a roaring fire was kept up
in the office stove, and the
shell was put on top of a re
fractory lid to keep it to its
place. It of course became
heated, and an explosion oo
curred causing dire consterna
tion among the employees, but
fortunately no one was hurt.
They are not likely to use
shells for that purpose again.
A young iady school teach

"Nothing mum," was the an

the teacher, severely; "now
tell me what it was." Johnny
looked frightened as he stulter
ingly said, "I I s-see yer

suddenly and arranged things.

IS the best system of modern short hand
writing. By its aid reporters are ambled
lo write verbltim the speeches of the most
rapid talkers, with the greatest ease. It is a
branch of study as easily learned aa any of
the common branches, such a reading, writ
ing, arithmetic ot grammar, and may be ac
quired by any child mat can read common
print readily. Ita characters are as fixed
and certain in Iheir meanings, as legible, as
philosophical, as beautiful a those now in
common use, are more aystemntic, and more
readily learned.
The great utility of Phonography la fully
conceded by learners- students, business and
professional men. The demand for Ph-moir-rapher
ia greater than the supply, and con
suntly Increasing. It is a sure and easy
stepping stone for a young man or woman to
immediate, permanent an I respectable em
ployment, at salaries of from f I, MO lo 13.000
per year, aa reporters for newspapers, civil
and military courts, Legislatures, Conven
tions, etc., or as clerks in the offices of rail
roads, telegraphs, lawyers, physicians, mer
chant and manufacturing houses, and in all
the I'epartments of th National liovernment
and as secretaries and amennsises. Thire is
no field of labor so cemiuij i.Drat!V(,
and no uneful art so easily acquired.
To the lawyer in noting down testimony
snd leferences, sndin preparing flistdra II of
brief and otrer legal papers it ia invaluable.
To the clergyman, in preparing his sermons,
to the public speaker in preparing a dis
course, lo any person havingatudiea or cler
ical duties it will save 0 percent, of time.
PARENTS, why not have your children
learn Phonography a useful and beautiful
art, a rettning amusement, a uniqe eccom
plishnent. In any vocation of I fe it will re
pay many times its cost in money time and

Every merchant, manufacturer
or business man who has lecome
prominently rich, has made his
fortune by judicious advertising.
JVo exception to this rule can be
cited! Stewart, the Prince of
Merchants, when a poor man, was
driven lo advertising, as a last
resort, to gel his stock turned into
money so as to meet a note. Ar
guing from this that if it was
good for him in adversity, he
could make it still better m pros
perity, he became a persistent ad
vertiser, and thus gained his co
lossal fortune.
Some merchants s:ty it is not worth
while to advertise; fur no person reads
advertisements; yet every merchant in
this county will rend this advertise
ment, and if ho is wise he will profit
l V its tUL'cestion, if he has anything to
offer wnrth advertising. How much
moro then will those to.mi them who
are not so largely supplied with rends
ing matter, are at leisure '.n tne even

their local news, the most iirportant
item of which is where they can (ind
jnat what they want when they come to
town to make their purchases. II join
stock is so old, rusty, dusty and out of
style that it is worth 'ess, or if it if run
down so that you have nothing left that
people would w.nt, it is not worth
while for you to advertise But if it is
new, fresh and sparkling, up to the
times, and such as the people want,
don't hide them, but publish to the
world that you havo them, and want
to sell tuoui at a lair price.
An advertisement published for a sin
cle day dues duty beyond that day,
and its effect continues in a greater
rati; than most men imagine, in the
end it will make a man's name a per
manent matter, a piece of real proper
ty built up in the minds of men until
it becomes more vnluablo than any
corner lot in his locality.

If those persons who profess to be.

are not read by thn public wish to be
convinced of their error, just let them
pvo publicity to somo matter they
would not care to divulge to the world,

that we want a new suit of clothes for

Why do people read advertisements?
To see who is enterprising and to learn
what is going on. To see if there is
anything new, or anything that they
want. To see if the season's style
have come in, and to find out who has
them. To know if any one is selling
off at reduced rates, or to watgh the
chance of an auction. For amusement

over one that is written or spoken.
This is one of the many reasons which
gives an importance to advertising. But
advertisers, even those of experience,
do not comprehend as well as they
might tbe capaoity to influence, to per
suade, to convince, which lies in print
ed matter. Spoken words require the
graces of elocution and the force of
eloquence, yet even then fade away in
to nothingness if not caught in their
flight and printed. But there is some-,
thing in the silent language, the quiet
assertion and the sense of permanence
about printed matter which gives it a
marvelous force and influence. Busi
ness men should never permit them
selves to loose sight of what may be
accomplished by a persevering nse of
the printing presses, l-iearn to adver
tise, and then the "how, when and
where" oi it, and you will have a
knowledge worth having.
