THE ELECTION OF SCHOOL
The election, on last Saturday,
held at the Mayor's Office, for the
purpose of electing two Members
of the Board of Directors for the
McConnelsville Public Schools, was
an event of no little significance
tlsuallr, there has been Iillle or
r.o interest manifested by our vo
ting population in these elections;
and, consequently, a few votes has
generally placed our Public Schools
under the guidance of almost any
sett of men that ould accept the
position and its responsibilities.
But the Ilerald, of last wev'k,
came out in a double-leaded edito
rial, which called upon the people
to give a ' full expression of their
desires on this question, by rallying
to the polls and voting for those
they copsidered good and capable
men; and'the people, thinking this
adriceoftho Herald's welUtimed
and worth following, did rally, and
did vote but not muchly for An
drew Kihkr, the Senior Proprietor
of said Ilerald.
Enoch Dye and Andrew Kahler,
Members of the old Board, and
whose time expiring and occasion
ing the necessity of this election,
were candidates for re election;
while certain citizens brought forth
David Mummoy and Eobt. A. Pink
erton in opposition to them.
All the petty trickery known to
such old politicians as Dye and Kah
ler, that could be brought into the
controversy, was resorted to by
them; but they were of no avail,
and we would not mention them
only that they show that the peo
ple of this locality are past being
duped by such means.
Kahler attempted to "pull the
wires very fino" by pretending that
be ''would not be a candidate un
der any circumstances," and then
Laving the town 6treKed with tick
ets, on Saturday morning, reading:
'Tor School Directors, Andrew
Kahler, Enoch Dye." "Sot satisfied
with th's, Kahler bad his name
printed and written on tickets in
connection with each ot the oppo
sition candidates, and had them
Dye resorted to none of these
petty arts, and waa very sorry that
his name was printed in connection
with Kahler's, as he thought it in
jured him; but ho attempted to
jrejudice voters against Mr. Pink
erton by whispering in their ears,
'lie did not support the war; he
voted for Yallandigham," and such
The following is a 6tatemont of
the votes cast, and for whom they
wero cast; and it will be seen that
Hobt. A. Pinkerton and David
Mummey wero elected by large
majorities; that Pinkerton, the man
who "didn't support tho wr.r, and
did vote for Vallandigham," receiv.
cd the largest rote of any of the
candidates, thirty more than Dye
and Kahlor together received: that
Kuhler, Senior Proprietor of the
paper that advised the peoplo to
select "good-' and "capable" men
to 11 the position of Fchiol Direc
tors, received only 43 votes from
174 voters who were endeavoring
to follow said paper s advice

For David Mummev,

Send a Paper. Horace Greeley
says : "Every parent whose son is
away from home at school should
furnish him with a home paper. I
well remember what a marked dif
ference tbore was between those of
my schoolmates who had and who

Business. Mr. Gross, one of the
leading dry good dealers in Piqua
recently informed us that he spends
about five hundred dollars yearly
in advertising, and that he considt
cred the newspaper the best sales
man he can find. The fact that be
is satified with tbe outlay, and that
bis establishment is continually
crowded with buyers is another ev
jdence if any more is needed
that advertisHBg UberaUy pays.

The Ice Crop. Considerable ap
prehension is manifest throughout
the country that tho ice crop of
this year will be a failure. Tho
winter, thus far, lias been remark
ably mild everywhere, and many
of the rivers which are generally
blocked up long ere this are ''ven
now open to navigation. It is pre
dicted, however, that we shi! yet
have considerable cold weather,
and experienced judges affairm
that there will be jionirh to yield
all the ice needed. It will be re
membered that scarcely any ice
bad been cut up to this time last
season, and fears were entertained
that the crop would boa failure,
but the month of Febuary was fs
vorab!e and the harvest was abundant.
The ruin of most men dates from
some vacant hour. Occupation it the
armor of the soul. There is a satirical
poem, in which the devil is represented
as fishing for men and fitting his bait
to the taste and business of his prey;
but the idler, he said, gave him no
trouble, as habit the naked hook.
An exchange well says that there
are many persons who either take
no paper at all, or else take one
from another city, acd when they
wish to pee what is transpiring in
thetr own neighborhood they borv
row the local paper from some citi
zen more liberal than themselves.
Many men of this kind are eugaged
in business, anJ frequently grum

home industry, when they practice
