brings the charge, had abused
Mrs. M. during his absence.

for Yates' house, and com

county, has returned to this

and Hocking counties. Mr.
Woodside has been the most
successful ardent ever engaged
in the business in this county,
having, perhaps, sold more ma
chines than all other agents
together. He represents a ma
chine which is unsurpassed, is
an excellent operator, and has
the faculty of impartiug his
skill to others, a most necessa
ry accomplishment, which has
not only helped him iu the
sale of many machines, but
has insured the satislactiou ol
his customers. If you want a
sewing machiue which is as
near perfect as human art can
make it, Woodside ia the man
to furuish it, and show you how
lo run if.

Elsewhere appears the ad
vertisement of D II. Baldwin
& Co., of Cincinnati, Ohio. We
take pleasure in calling atten
tion to this advertisement. It
is one of the oldest and most
reliable houses in the west,
both as regards the quality of
instruments sold aud the
prompt and honorable manner
of doing business.
They sell the Decker Broth
ers' Piano, which, as is well
known, is the beet piano man
ufactured; while the "Valley
Gem" has a repulion ot which
many older manufacturers
might well be proud. We are
assured that the demand for
this piano is greater than the
production, and Messrs. Bald
win & Co., can not get them as
fast as they need them. Being
a piano made where the cost
of making is much less than
in the east they can be placed
upon the market much cheaper.
This with their excellent ton?,
action and wearing qualities
has made them popular.
Messrs. Baldwin & Co. also
sell the Estey Organs whose
unrivaled power, sweetness
and variety have won the con
CJence of the people wherever
sold. Their durability has giv
en them a popularity which
has no equal, and though mak
ing an organ every 20 min
ules, they can not keep pace
with the growing demand.
Messrs. Baldwin & Co. have
sent Mr. J. S. Hulick to our
county to exhibit these organs,
and we assure our readers that
they may deal with Mr. Hu
lick in lull confidence that they
will obtain the best terms and
prices that can be had. We
hope Messrs. Baldwin & Co.
will secure a good trade in our
county, and parties will do
well to deal with a house
whose long business career
and solid reputation furnishes
a guarantee for ihe instruments
Mr. Hulick will be found a
genial and courteous gentle
man. Let all see him aud deal
