Ohio's First Born.
[From the Cincinnati Commercial.]
BUCYRUS, OHIO, 1873.
Considerable interest basev
er been taken in the qnestion
as to who was the first white
child born in this Stated Your
readers, therefore, mav Jbe. per
baps interested in tbellollow
ing record containing ap ac
count of the birlhs of afew wlio
were supposed to lie amoiig
the firstborn within what are
now the limits of the State. .-.
At the close of PonliiicVwar,
iu 1764, a captive, a jrtyuan,
was delivered up to the' army
ot Colonel lienry Bouquet on
the banks of the Aluskiugum,
who had at the time a babe at
the breast about three months
old. She had been taken by the
Indians about three months
previous. That child wits un
doubtedly born upon territory
now within this State. - Her
husband was a Virginian; but
nothing is known of either Ljeir
history or nr.me.
On the 4lh of July, 1173,-a
inale.cluld was born at one ol
the Moravian villages upon the
Tuscarawas, then known as
(Jnadenhutten. The father was
John Roth, a missionary to the
Delawares. The sou was nam
ed John Lewis. He died at
York, Pennsylvania. Mis moth
er's nuiden name was Maria
In 1774 a white child was
born in the forest on the head
waters of the Miami River ot
Canadian French Parents by
the name of Millhomme, then
on their way to Louisiana from
Canada. Concerning the his
tory of the parcuts nothing is
known. The child crew to man
hood and was living in Terre
Bonne, Louisiana, as late as the
ear 1835. ., . .
In 1775 Samuel Leith was
born of white parents in Wy
andot county. ilis father's
name was John. His mother's
maiden name was Sally Lowry.
The wo were captives among
the Indians and had intermar
ried in the western wilderness.
Samuel Leith died in 'Fairfield
county, in 1S20.
Johanna Maria Hec'kewelder
was born April 6, 1871, at Sa
lem, n Moravian Indian village
in what is now Tuscarawas
county. She died in Bethle
hem, Pennsylvania, on the 19 ill
of September, 18G8. She had
long been regarded as tbe first
while child born in Ohio; but,
as we have seen, her claims to
that distinction must now be
given up. lier latlior s name
was John lleckewelder, a mo-
ravian missionary. The mai
den name ot her mother was
C. W. BUTTERFIELD.
A Great Horror Done Away
House cleaning is a great
horror to nine men outof every
ten. When Ihe lime comes the
'men folks," as a rule give the
domestic hearth a '-wide berth "

as they never worked before,
and what wiih the discomfort,
the smell of suds and the damp
ness, and not unlrequently
sickness, the product of colds
and overwork, matters are gen
erally disagreeable. The sim
ple use of Sapolio instead of
soap does away wiih all this
discomfort. It lightens the la

cause it removes dirt, grease,
stpins and spots, with hardly
any labor, wiih but little water,

A Very Singular Case of Feline
We have heard of many won
derful things which have been
done by cats; and there has
.been not a little superstition
among some classes ot people
in regard to their connection
with .witchcralt. We remem
ber of once seeing a picture of
.a ''witch," in which the old lady
was riding on a broom with a
black cat. in her arms. We
were solemnly told, when, when
we were a youngster, that cats
had seven lives,'' and whatev
er that may mean, there is no
use in trying to make us be
lieve that it is not absolutely
But all this had nothing to
do, that we- know of, with a
very singular "cat" incident
which happened night before
last at the residence of one of
our leading citizens, who re
sides ic the northern part of
the town. Being outof the gas
district he uses "kerosene ' oil,
and during the night is in the
habit of leaving one of these
lamps burning on a bracket in
a vestibule, which connects his
own sleeping apartments with
the children's "nursery." On
the night in question, by some
accident or other, the lamp
seems to have got out of order.
At any rate the wick caught
fire and was blazing a danger
ous flame against the ceiling.
Iu a short time the house
would have evidently been on
fire, the entire household mean
while being soundly asleep.
But the old family cat, the fam
ily playfellow of the children,
was in the apartment; and ap
parently appreciating the dan
ger of the situation, jumped
upon the bed and commenced
energetically to "paw" the face
of our friend. Of course be was
at once startled and aroused
from sleep by the performance,
and, hastening to the blazing
lamp, saved his house from
what might have beea a de
Now, he does not assume to
explain what the cat had to do
with the affair. He does not
know whether it was instinct,
reason or an irrelevant freak
which prompted "pussy" to
awake him irom his sound
slumber just in time to save
his house from burning, but
the incident is not a little sin
gular, to say the least of it. Il
would seem that the cat is re
ally endowed with intelligence,
and we doubt not, now that we
have told her story, that there
will be a general rush for the
next litter of kittens. The cat
herself is not for sale.
Principles Governing Rotation.
1. However well a soil may
be prepared, it can not long
uourisn crops of the same kind
n succession without becom
2. Every crop impoverishes
soil more or less, according
as more or les3 is restored to
the 6uil by the pltnt cullivaU
3. Perpendicular rooting
plants and such as root lion
zuutally ought to succeed each
4. Plants of the same kind
should not return too frequent
ly iu rotation.
5. Two plants favorable to
the growtn ot weeds should
not succeed each other.
6. Such plants as eminent
ly exhaust the soil, as the
grains and oil plants, should
only be sown when the land is
in good heart.
7. In proportion as a soil is
found to exhaust itself by suc
cessive crops, plan's which are
least exhausting should be Cul
tivated. Our farmers have only to
keep these seven fundamental
principles in mind in order to
keep their land rich for all

In Favor of Fat Meat.
Dr. Dixon in a late number
of the Scalpel, in an article on
"diet," assumes that the use ol
oil would decrease the victims
of consumption nine tenths,
and this Is the whole secret of
the use of cod liver oil. The
following is a summary of ob
servations on this subject made
by Dr. Hooker.
1. Of all persons between
tbe ages of 14 and 22 years
mere than one-fifth can not eat
2. Ot persous of the age of
45, all excepting less than one
hUh habitually use fat meat.
3. Ol persons between the
ages of 15 and 22 avoid fat
meat tew acquire an appetite
for it and live to a good old
age, while the greater portion
die with phthisic before thirty
five. 4r. Of persons dying with
phthisic between the ages of
12 and 45 nine-tenths, at least,
have never used fat meat.
Most individuals who avoid
fat meat also use little butter
or oily gravies, though many
compensate for this want, in
part at least, by a free use of
those articles, and also milk,
eggs and saccuariue substitute
tor lat meat, without which
sooner or later the body is al
most sure to show tbe effects
of this -deficient calorfication

Yet Solomon was right in say
ing there is no eucIi new thing
Analogous establishments do
abound abroad, and may be
traced back a thousand years.
In Hamburg, traveling work
men live in lodging houses,
called "Ilerlergen," or harbor
ages, belonging to their vari
ous trades, and are furnished
with the loan ot 6uch tools as'
they need. But they pay the
cost of whatever is furnished

Uerbergen or industrial
caravansaries, each serving as
a house of call or labor mart
still survive in Prussia also.
But the best counterparts of
the Nebraska Emigrants' home
are in Switzerland. At Olton,
Slanz, Berne, and throughout
the canton ot Neuchatel, itin
erant workmen (iud beds or
other accommodations, free of
Moreover, the "Hospices"
scattered over the passes of
the Alps, open their doors and
tables to all comers. The wri
ter has himself been entertain
ed in more than one of them,
on the St. Bernards (Ureat and
Little), St. Gothard, &j. No
payment is expected from the
poor, but other people are led
carefully to the contribution
box in the chapel.
All these European homes
of hospitality deserve the high
est praise. The difference be
tween them and that in Lincoln
is this: tbat they all send
forth there guests to toil on the
same low level as before, white
the Lincoln house is a stepping
stone to a higher plane. It
was, last year, a refuge for
hundreds of new imigrants till
they could command higher
wages than they had ever
earned, and for hundreds more
till they secured homesteads,
which raised them iuto the
rank ot landlords and lords of
the land. The Alpine estab
lishments are obsolescent nnd
ready to vanish away, as hav
ing outlived their usefulness,
that beyond the Missouri is
still in its cradle, but is yearly
doubling its development.
All of them are as suns to
guide, gladden and save; but,,
in spite of astronomy, the
grand sun is setting in the East
and rising in the West.
