THE FALL OPENING
The second semi-annual opening of dry
goods, dress goods, and novelties of Y.
H. Ingels & Co., the Bourbon princes in
their line, took place last Thursday, Friday
and Saturday. The great swarm of
ladies constantly pouring in and out of
that well-known establishment, the News,
too, sought to gratify an uncontrolable
desire to see all that's to be seenj and
wedged through the mass of living beauties
strewn promiscuously along the entire
length of both counters of that
Tastily arranged along the counters on
each side, were to be seen the leaders in
fall and w'ffiteivStyles ol dress goods, with
each pattern bedecked artistically with
the trimmings carefully selected and purchased
in New York for this or that particular
dress showing that Ai P. Allis
had not been spending a term 6f weeks
in the East at random buying, but had
kept an eye on the special wants of a tasty
and highly cultivated, dressy people,
who are semi-annually attracted from
several counties, to his popular emporium,
on these looked-for-with-delight oc
In viewing the many beautiful dress
patterns, we were constrained to remark
that we never witnessed a more beautiful
arra)r. The rich tints of the velvets,
silks, gimps, buttons, &c blended so harmoniously,
and as a lady behind our
back remarked "beautifully sublime."
Not having our stock of adjectives along,
we simply nodded a concurrence, and
moved along past a bewildering lot of
plushes, all the varied hues, striped and
solid, grosgrain silks, embroidered cashmeres,
terre cotta silks, &c, &c.
Among the many pretty dresses, we
noticed a handsome black guinet silk,
trimmed in chenille fringe and ornaments
; it was rich, rare and delectable
in enchanting qualities. Also, we noticed
an embroidered cashmere, a pretty
brown traveling dress trimmed in the
military braid that .is so fashionable at
present. And, too, a lovely toilet of
wine colored silk trimmed in Spanish
lace very artistically designed. As a perfect
we would recommend a
small glance at that wine plush jacket.
It would make pink cheeks and bright
I eyes wear a warmer, brighter and more
sparkling glow, and lend quite a fairy enchantment
to the wearer.
Miss Ella de la Monte i3 the artist presiding
over the dress department this season,
and pattern goods now on the dummies
and on the boards "behind the
scenes," ,speak in rapturous, glowing
terms of her exquisite taste.
The lines above the counters and cornices
were as usual, bedecked and draped
with all the new novelties in the fantastic
notion and drapery line, This display,
with the tasty arrangement of the
superabundant floral display in the front
of the store and show windows, speaks
forth in loud worefcrof praise to the delicate
and tasty hands of Mrs. James Paton
and Mrs. Bettie Blaisdell, to whom the
News is vastly indebted for courtesies extended
during the ten minutes which we
were lost to the business world, and were
given wholly to scattering exclamations
of praise towards the beautiful in all directions.
TVe heard Mr. Barnes preach again
Sunday morning at Melodeon Hall, Cincinnati.
The hall contained a fair
I ence many coming in late from Louis
ville on an excursion, were in attendance.
"The Second Coming of Christ" was the
subject under consideration. There were
no confessions or annointments at the
close of the sermon. Appointments were
given out for afternoon and evening services
at the Grand Opera House, but we
hud to forego the pleasuae of following
up the evangelist further, and wend our
way home to business. At the services
Saturday and Sunday Miss Marie did not
sing the devil having taken a little
whack at her voice and smitten her with
a slight hoarseness. Mr. Barnes gave out
the verses, and the congregation sang,
Miss Marie accompanying with organ
Mr. Barnes is undecided whether he
will strike Buffalo or New York next,
1 before his departure for Europe.
Mr. Barnes says that he's but the tail
end of a grand and glorious system that
is now shaking the whole world. He re-erred
to Moody, Hamilton, and the other
grand evangelists who are advocating the
early coming of Christ.
It just takes a Congressman's wages
($8 per day), to board the Barnes family

at the reduced rate of $32, the

A Small Sensation.
Mr3. Ellen Paton, formerly 'Mfss
Ellen Burr, filed a petition in the office
of the Clerk of the Bourbon Circuit
Court, Saturday, asking for a divorce and
$5,000 alimony from her husband, Henry
T. Paton, a merchant of this city. The
allegatlans in the petition are that he
has for the past seven months beat, abused,
and cruelly treated her, and refused
to provide daily wants for her and her
four children, who range from seven to
thirteen years in age , and furthermore,
that the said husband hath within the
last three months been living in adultery
with a colored woman.
There have been a number of rumors
on the -town for the last few days concerning
this unfortunate affair, but
nothing positive could be learned until
the said petition was filed.
In behalf of the plaintiff, her attorney
G. C. Lockhart, attached the goods of H.
T. Paton which was being sold out at
auction, on Saturday night, which have
been placed in the hands of A. T. Forsyth
as receiver, and the sale has been
A Mastodon Found.
The skeleton of a full-grown mastodon
has been unearthed by the K. C. extension
hands, on the Jos. Mitchell farm,
two miles from town. It was found in
making a cut, on top of a hill, and over
six feet below the surface of the earth.
The skeleton was in a fair state of preservation,
when first exposed, but much of
it crumbled to dust when exposed to the
air. The Mastodon is the Russian term
of Fossil Elephant, and is extensively
found in Russia and all over Europe.
It became extinct, according to geology,
near 10,000 years ago, died on the Pleistocene
beds. In 1799, one was found in
the icy districts of Russia, the hide of
which was in a fair state of preservation,
and was of such weight that it took ten
men to transport it a distance of. 150 feefc
This one found Saturday was stretched
out a distance of forty feet supposed to
have been devoured by carniverous animals,
and the bones disengaged from
their original position. The largest mastodons
range from 14 to 24 feet in length,
and from 9 to 12 feet in hekihth.
