Columbus & Hocking Valley
The Athens Messenger) of Oc
tober 31, says: '
"The Columbus and Hocking
Valley Kailroad Company have
placed ' some of their bonds in
the market at a rate that should
render them readily popular.-
Ine unparalleled prosperity of
the road under its present effi
cient management is an all-sufficient
. guarantee of . the peraa
neni worth of its" bonds. . Per
sons wishing to, ' invest safely
and advantageously r can find
nothing better than ' Hocking
v aiiey itaiiroad bonds. "
The bonds of the Columbus &
Hocking Valley Railway are
m,ore valuable than those of any
other road in the United States,
taking, the length of its line into
The Horse Disease. The epi
demic that is at present prevail
ing among horses throughout the
eastern and western cities and
Canada,has seriously interrupted
business. Many cases are re
ported in New York city. We
have heard of but eighteen cased
in southern Ohio, which were at
Washington C. II., Fayette coun
ty, two weeks ago, only two of
which were fatal.
Our farmers should look well
td their horses now if they do
not want to lose them We
learn that care and rest is about
all that is necessary to insure
recovery from an attack of the
disease, but which if not given,
fatal results invariably ensue, in
a short time.
The disease is of the catarrhal
character, its first noticable sym-
toms being a flow of tears from
the eyes, and a watery discharge
from the nose with general lan
guor, followed by a cough. . The
treatment most generally recom
mended is the' following :
A stimulating liniment applied
to the glands of the throat, and
muriate of ammonia, with licor
ice and honey, given internally.
Carbonate of ammonia is given
where a stimulant is required.
The surgeons generally condemn
the anti-phlogistic treatment by
sedatives and especially purga
tives, as exceedingly pernicious.
If the disease is not promptly at
tended to, the horse may die of
inflammation of the lungs.
In every instance where
bleeding is resorted to, the re
sult is fatal.
In 1869 George IL' Pendle
ton, a Democrat, was beaten for
Governor of Ohio by only 7,180.
Now Aquila Wiley, .a Greeley
Republican, and supported by
all Greeleyites against the regu
lar Republican candidate for
Secretary of State is beaten by
more than twice that majority.
Pomeroy's New York Democrat.
Bro. "Brick" of the Democrat
ought to learn to tell the truth
"at all times and upon all occa
sions," because "truth is mighty
and will prevail."
Pendleton was beaten, for
Governor by 7,501 majority, not
Wiley was not "beaten for
Secretary of State by consider
bly more than twice that num
ber;" the majority against him
In 1869 the 18,000 negro vo
ters of this State did not vote,
but at the election this1 year all
voted against, WiLEr., Without
the, negro vote Wiley would
have been elected Secretary of
State by 5,000. majority.
We desire our excited brother
of the great Democrat to care
fully look' at these figures and
cease making wild statements in
this age of national gift enter
prises and wholesale corruption.
Tile corn crop upon the farm
of Hon. John Fee, five miles
northeast) of McArthur, as we
are informed by Thomas W. Da:
vis, who resides , upon the farm,
will exceed $10,000 bushels.
Mr Davis and David Andrews
have raised 4,000 bushels on 60
acres of bottom land, which had
never been plowed until this
season. ' Several acres of the
ground produced over 70 bushels
to the acre. 1 In huskinc the
com they found a number
of ears 16 inches in length. One
ear of corn contained one thou
sand, three hundred and twenty
grains. The corn is mostly of
the "Dent variety.'!
it any one in Vinton county
has beaten Mr. Davis in raising
corn this year, let him send us a
report for publication.

Last Thursday evening, Octo
ber 31st, All Halloween, was
not, for some unexplained rea
son, celebrated by the numerous
bad 4)oys of bur, town in . their
usual noisy and insulting man
ner. ine evening was very
quiet on account of the scarcity
of cabbage heads and cabbage
stumps, perhaps. ,.
In many parts of the old
world this is the evening in
which to determine the marital
affairs for, the ensuing year.. 5 On
this night, according to the 'pld
traditions!,' tho 4 goblins f kand
gnosis, water sprites ana wood
land fays will be abroad, and
many and marvelous are the
stories told by the old chroni
clers of their wonderful exploits.
But the boys of our town are
never seen on this evening along
the low lands above and below
the water mills or, near the reser
voir to witness the movements
of these midnight prowlers. In
stead of being there looking for
the ghosts and things to appear,
the boys are running through
the streets banging in doors with
cabbage heads and stumps and
raising Old Ned generally.
- On this evening, in thousands
of the hamlet in England, Ire
land and Scotland, apple seeds,
named for lovers and sweet
hearts, are placed upon the eye
lids, and the ones -that fall first
will be faithless, while the one
that remains longest is the true
lover; and as Burns, the poet,
Many lads and lassos' fataa
Are on that night decided.
In the cities and many parts
of this country the festival is
yearly losing Its , hold, but in
some places many of the old
time customs are still in Vogue.
Inday, the day following, be
ing the festival of .''Ail Saints,"
is celebrated with appropriate
ceremonies in the Catholic and
Editor Enquirer; -Allow us
to express bur hasty acknowl
edgements to the 'ladies- who
kindly planned and so admirably
carried out the arrangements for
the donation last Thursday night
It was gratifying to know the
many friends we have made
during the two-and-a-half years
stay in McArthur, and to all
who honored us, both with their
gifts and their presence, we ten
der our sincere thanks, assuring
them their kindness will not soon
The donation could not .have
been made at a more acceptable
time, and. therefore was all- the
more highly appreciated by
, . . Yours, very truly, ' .
