GOGGLES. No Division of the School Fund
M. J. P.Carberry, Democral
c member of the Constitution
al Convention from llamilton
County, h8 introduced a reso-
ution that the Constitution be
so amended as not to iorbid a
division or the public school
funds. Mr. Oarberry may as
well save himself all trouble on
that account. The people of
Ohio are not fools. On Ihe cou
trary Ihey are, by a very large
majority, men oi too much
sense to adopt a Constitution
which does not lorbid in em
phatic terms, any division of
the public school funds. Mr.
Carberry, although a Koman-
lat, has been for a number of
years a member ot the Cincin
nati Board of Education. Ilia
Archbishop tells him that the
public school is I lie gate oi
li II, and warns him to keep
his children therefrom. His
ilject in making such a prop
osition to the convention is to
give Ihe ilomanists a chance
at the public treasury. Hands
off is the sentimerif of the
ile. Protestants and Catholics
may keep their parochial
schools so long us they can do
so with their own money; with
them the people have no con
cern. The public schools must
be let aIoue by all denomina
tions, sects, aud societies, and
le:t where they belong, under
the coi trol of the people.
The following is from the
Wheeling (Va ) Register:
Some scoundrel played a
trick on one of tho employees
of Robinfon's "Great Moral
Combination Show," when it
was at Wheeling the other day.
Just about dark as one of the
i: rooms attached lo Robinson's
circus was taking Ihe very val
uable) hone rode by Robert
Siickney, in his fearless bare
back act, from Ihe boat, he
was approached by a man who
pretended to be a deputy Sher
iff, having an execution on the
animal. The horse was sur
rendered and the pretended
Sheriff mounted and rode oil.
The fraud was soon discovered
and search made lor the dar-
ng thief, but without success.
He had too great a start lo be
easily found. It was one ot
ihe boldest, cleverest and be?t
executed tricks ever played.
There was no process against
the Circus company, by any
authority, in the city or county,
aud ail the Sheriff's officeis
were in the Court house at the
time the horse was stolen.
The Champion Drayman.
Jacob Weiler is the Cham
pion Drayman of Chillicothe, if
long and uninterrupted ser
vices for one house deserves
the appellation. Jake com
pleted jesterday his twenty-
third year a drayman for the
Grocery House of Wm. Poland,
having hauled Mr. Poland's
first stock of goods, May 29th,
1850. During these many
years Jacob has not been ab
sent from his post, with the ex
ception of an occasional sick
day. Jake says he is good lor
twenty more years. Ad multus
To Make Posts Last Forever.
A correspondent of the Wes
tern Rural says: I discovered
many years ago that wood
could be made to last longer
than iron, in the ground, but
thought the process so simple
aud inexpensive that it was not
worth while making any stir
about it. I would as soon have
poplar, bi89W00d or quaking
ash as any other kind of timber
for fence posts. I have taken
out basswood after having
been set seven years, that were
as sound when taken up as
when they were first put into
the ground. Time and weather
seemed to have no effect on
them. The posts can be pre
pared for less than two cents
apiico. For the benefit of oth
ers 1 will give the recipe; Take
boilod linseed oil and stir in it
pulverised charcoal to the con
sistency of paint. Put a coat ol
this over the limber, and there
is not a man who will live to
see it rot.
A TR.wtfcEii coming up from
the Central Depot yesterday
stopped lor a moment lo ex
amine a coat hanging in front
of a clothing store. The pro
prietor rushed out and asked:
"Wouldn't you try on some
coaUf Idunno but I would,'
responded the traveler, con
sulting his timekiller, and he
went In and began work. No
mailer how often he found his
fit, he called for more coats,
and after he had tried on about
thirty he looked at his watch,
again resumed his own gar
ment, and walked off, sayingi
"I won't charge a cent for what
I've done; haiiR a man who
won't oblige another when he

Tub latest item of local re
ligious news is snd lobe the
following: A certain sinner,
recently received a a member
in a certain church, was asked
by some friends one Sunday
soon after that event, to take a
stroll with them over the hills.
It so happened that Sacrament
was to be administered that
day at the church of which the
young man was a member, and
lelt it incumbent upon him to
attend lhat rite. He therefore
declined the invitation, but
not being well posted as yet
in church matters, he put it in
this way: 'T can't go with you,
boys. They have lunch at my
church to-day, and I must at

There is a doctor of cats in
New York who has three thou
sand patients, he says. The
Sun has interviewed, and ob
tained many interesting facts,
among which is the categoric
al account ol f'ommodore Van-'
derbilt's feline family. '"The
cats lhat he owns I've brought
up from the very bottle, and
when I go to see tliein, which I
do if they get sick, it's just as
much as I can do to get out of
the house with the way they
go on howling and screeching
for me to stay with them, There
is Jim, Bucky, Tom and Lullie
just four. I remember,
though, when he kept nine al
together; but Tom, which is the
biggest one of the lot, and as
cross as a scorched hornet
when he gets his hair up, drove
the olher or.ei away, and by
George! if they didn't all trot
down to me about two mouths
ago, and 1 had the greatest
trouble to get rid of them. The
ones that remained got along
peaceably enough, and the
Commodore is so devotedly at
tached (o them that my kind
ness to them and the skilllul
manner in which I treat them
when they are sick, have won
for me his unbounded confi
dence." He says he guesses he
has made $300 doctoring a cat
he sold to Jiy Gould for 925,
and wouldn't have it in his
house for $30. James Fisk
owned nine cats. Augustus
Schell has a cat that he thinks
more of than his own child
and it seem to me lhat Ihe
uglier it gets the more he lav
ishes good things upon it. It's
a black she cat, and has a short
stump of a tail. It's no inous
er, i)ut the fondest creature for
sleep I erer heard ol. The" old
gentleman takes '.I to bed with
him and actually has a 1U tie
night-cap made for it, which he
puts on and takes oft himself.
It has one good point, however,
it naver jells at night. When
Mr. Schell goes to market he
always takes his cat with him.
The explanations are coming,
Raper, of the Vinton Record,
"rises to explain" as follow.-;
"We are not afraid of our mo
lives being misunderstood in
any money which ever passed
between Capt. Wilson andour
selves, He has paid us for ev
ery thing he got ot us in the the
regular course of business just
as other people have, but has
never tendered, uor did we ex
pect money for editorial sup
port." The Record is certainly
prompt, and it may be explicit
enough, provided Wilson's idea
of what the money was paid for
coincides with that of the Rec
ord editor, but if Wilson did
tell Mackley what he says he
did, and sticks to it, how then?
Meigs Co. News.
Tuey are telling the East

of a book canvasser who talk

a pretty Utile woman sewing
at a window for over halt an
hour, endeavoring to bell her
a book. ' Finally handing her
the book lor a subscription,
she wrote: "Inie defe and

hurt the story at all that it isn't
true, but then it is as well to
point out to its originator that
ihe errors in spelling of deaf

phonetic in their character.
Sham deaf and dumb people
hive often been discovered
