Lantz, a bright lad aged
sixteen, a soa of Qeorge Lantz,
met with his death in a strange,
sad manner last Saturday eve
ning. The boys of ur village
are in the habit of indulging in
a game they call "chug," which
consists simply In "chugging"
or hitting each other with the
elbow or fist, a kind of a rough,
unscientific game of boxing.
Just after supper on Saturday
evening John was up street and
engaged with Gus. Winder, a
boy about his own age, in front
of the Record office in a game
of 'cliug." While engaged in
the game he was struck in the
pit of the stomach, and fell
lifeless upon the pavement, his
head striking the bricks with
much force. Every effort was
made to restore him, but he
never moved or breathed after
The news of the accident
spread rapidly and cast a gen
eral gloom over the whole com
munity, with whom he appears
to have been a general favor
ite. To all it was a mo3t ter
rible shock, then how sore a
trial to his parents, brothers,
and sisters who but a few mo
ments before had parted from
him in perfect health, and to
his almost constant companion,
who, without malice, caused lil-
death. We hope this accident
sad as it if, may long be borne
in mind by the boys ot our vil
lage when they are tempted to
engage in boisterous sports.
Tne Democratic Convention
which met hist Monday nomi
nated U. S. Claypoolo ns its
candidate for Member of the
Constitutional Convention, on
a ballot of 22 for Claypoole
and 20 for Lewis A. Atwood,
O. T. Uunnina; havii'g with
drawn as a candidate, staling
as his reason therefor that he
would not pledge himself to
abide the derision of the Con
mention as he understood Mr.
At wood, one of the candidates,
was opposed to tho principle
embodied in Ihe 13 esel Rtil
road bill, n.iI it nominated he
would not support liihi. This
settled Mr. A I wood's case, pro
vi.led it was not settled before.
The Convention was a very
tate aff'iir, five of the town,
ships not b'i:ig represented
at all, and some oi the
otlinr townships being repre
senfed by but out or I wo dele

Repeal of Usury Laws.
Mr. J. S. Rope's,' President of
the Boston Board ot Trada, has
given his answers to a series ol
questions as to the results ot
the usury laws in Massachu
setts. All may be sumed up
in few a words. In the opinion
of Mr. Ropes, while the repeal
was not popular 1with borrow
ers at six per cent: on mort
gages, it is approved by other
borrowers, aud by intelligent
merchants in general; it has
not worked, so'fer as he is
aware, any hardship or oppres
sion to the borrowing class;
for a long time hardly any dif
ference was noticeable, but "its
ultimate effect haa been to sub
stitute seven per cent for six in
mortgages and bank loarie;'
that rates are on the average
rather lower instead of higher
than before; spasmodic chang
es have been absolutely un
known since the1 repeal; and
that on the whole,' the effect
has been in every way satisfac
torythe loanabUcapital hav
ing been greatly Increased, so
that borrowers are supplied

ItiE next Governor of Ohio
if to be a Republican will
probably be Hon. John T. Wil

signs of the timed. He is the
most favorably spoken of by
the Republican press, and as
Southern 0!iio seems to been
litled to the candidate, he
seems to be first best in the
