Get Up Your Clubs,
War Iho Herald claims that the
passage of tho Tike Road Act was
an online! Democratic procooding.
We will answer that F. 11. Tond,
the Republican Representative of
Morgan county in the lust Legisla
ture, nnd now the Republican can
didate for Attorney General of Ohio,
not only voted for tho passngo of
this law, but was ono of its most
earnest advoratos when it was bo
fore tho House. Now, if tho Tike
Road Act was entirely of Democrat
ic making, we tttko it nanndentablo
that F. B. Pond, tho Republican
candidate for Attorney Genorsl of
Ohio, is a Democrat I Ro careful.
Mr. Herald, or yon will ruin Hond's
prospects in .Iho Republican party,
Anti-Ti Mkx, JIewakk ! All
Anti-l'iko men should have thoir
wits about them when they como Jo
town. Tho Commissioner, Court I
Honso Ririg nnd Ihrald, havo thoir
agents on all vomers, using every
argumcnltbat nclivo brains nnd oily
tongues can bring to bear ngainut
the Toople'e Connty Convention.
These town men, as a general thing,
oro interested in having Fiko Roads
built at the peoplo's expenso, and
they will almost lay awuko of nights
to thir.k np some plan by which
they can dolude some anti-Tike man
into voting iho Republican Tike
ticket. Bo on your guard I
t&" Tho Herald Is surprisod at the
action of tho Tomperanco men In
nominating a Tomperanco State
Ticket, for tho reason that it, tho
Herald, conceives Gov.flaycs nnd
Col. Pond to bo Tomperanco men.
Tho Tcmperaneo men of Morgan
County don't look at things in that
light. They havo roasons to dis
trust tho aontimcnts of such men as
lfnycs and Pond. ThoTcinporanco
men of tho Republican party voted
for J)avo Tod, Jack Brongh, Andrew
Johnson, and Grant, and Iho result
was that tbey elected drunkards
WirTho anti-l'ike Republicans
requested tho Jhrald to publish tho
call for a Peoplo's Convention. It
is unnecessary lor us to say mat
this request was refused. Tho anti
Pikers might have known that tho
Herald could havo no sympathy
with their movemont. It has been
a Piko organ throughout, is now tho
organ of tho Republican Piko tick
et, and would glorify over tho taxa
tion of every aero of land in tho
County for Tiko purpoxes.
IkaTTho Herald says it "confi
dently cxpocts thnxo Republicans,
who signed tho cull, to reconsider
their action." We have heard from
various parts of tho country since
tho above was published, and we can
inform tho public Mint " Micro Ro-pnblit-ans"
have " reconsidered their
action," and that they have finally
concluded to not bo humbug;od by
tho Commissioners, Court Houso
Ring nnd Herald, nnd that they will
stand up lilio men to tho Peoplo's
ST The Herald ot last week, In
speaking of tho Tcmperaneo Stato
Ticket, asks, in substance, is not Col.
F. B. Pond a strict enough tompor
anco man? Wo tako leave to an
swer that tho Colonel is not a strict
enough temperance man according
to the Hcrald'i criterion. Tho Her
ald says, as a maxim not to bo gain
said, tho hog returns to bis wollow,
the dog to his vomit." Should this
bo tho caso, Col. Pond won't repro
sent tho temperance Republicans.

1ST Tho Herald says the most in
fluontial of tho Republicans who
signed tho Teoplo's call havo with
urawn inoir names. Wo do not
know but that Mr. Pylo thought hu
was stating tho truth when he pub
lished this, and, consequently, in
stating it not to bo tho truth, wo
will only say Mr. Pylo is mistaken.
Not a Republican has withdrawn
fcirllon. James M. Gaylord,
"Jim Gaylord," as tho polito (?) ed
itor of the Herald says, was not tho
porson that first solicited tbo Con
for a Convention. Tho man who
first apoko to us on tho subject, U

Tho sigu'ors of tbo call for

tbo namo of J. V bulky Knox; of
Manchester Tp., as a candidato for
llocorder, cubject to tho decision of
tho Teoplo's Convention of Morgan

Sepulture as a Science.
A French writer named Fryc
iuct, has spent his Ii fa In investiga
ting all known method ol disposing
of tho dead. All his inferences arc
arguod with special reference to tho
public health, and ho considors the
existing systom of burial in tho
earth to bo on tho wholo tho best ;
only modifications aro suggested.
Vaults aro decried; so tiro all thoso
systems and means such as metal
cofllna and preservative processes
which tend to arrest decay . Tho
aim should bo to promolo decompo
sition; to facilitate tho access of
carih to tho body, and especially to
help tho transformation ot cadaver
ic matter by the influence ol vegeta
tion. A tt co-covered plain tho
sacred grove of old is tho bcxt
mortuary; fittest in every way, ics
thetically and Manitnrily. As
cremation, it is totally inapplicable;
iho odors that would bo spread over
a country by tho burning of several
thousand corpses a week would bo
ear Tho JIkiiald of last wock,
ironically suggests Mint every relig
ious association should nominate a
State ticket. It is mad with tho
Republican Temporanco men, who,
through all dangors, will stand by
their honest convictions Hint intern

that Amoricitns nro subjected to.
