A New time schedule took tv fleet
on tlio Marrietta & Cincinnati Rail
road, on Sunday morning last. Not
having been furnished with a copy
of the new time table, we cannot
give our readers the correct time of
the arrival of the trains. Only one
passenger train each way stops at
Dundus. The way-mail trains,
which pass, between the hours of
1 anil 3 o'clock in the afternoon of
each day, except Sunday, make no
stops at Dundns the mail being
caught on a long-necked white bird,
called a crane. This is a cheap
way to transport the mail, but we
can't sny whether it will be much
of an improvement on the old, sure
and safe way or not. If the long
neck of the white crane at Dundus
fails to catch our large mail sacks,
which are filled daily with letters
nnd newspapers, it would perhaps
improve the activity of the old bird
b g ving it a coat of colored paint.
The people have no faith in the
crnue nil prefer the American
r'nglc as a mail messenger.
The new time of running trains
is very unprofitable to C. W. Bak
nett, proprietor of the buck line,
lie receives a small salary for car
rying the mail to nnd from Dundas,
and, ns the mail trains do not slop
ni the station, hecannot carry puss
migers to and from the trains, but is
compelled to make two trips with
the unil li.'ich lay.

In Wood's Household Mngazim

efforts have been spared that could
add to its excellence. "A Sermon

ity, but contains sound logic.
"Mrs. I'onieroy's Pin Money," is
capital. "Upon the Stand," is an
other meritorious sketch, by the
popular writer, Kate W. Hamilton.
"Codfish and Potatoes," by Eleanoi
Kirk, is it short serial which opens
well. "Growing Aged Together,"
by the Rev. Robert Collyer, is well
worth the price of the year's sub
scrption; it is full of this nianV
eloqticiiec powerful in its veiy
simplicity. There arc many other
interesting articles had we space to
mention them. The poetry in thin
number 'h unusually good. A new
feature of the magazine is the in
trodiution of pictures, and the ii
lustration, "Past, Present and Fu

pretty. Price of magazine, one

Letter from Josiah Jones, Esq.
NEAR X ROADS MEETIN' HOUSE,
Nov. 3, 1873.
I've been feelin' so good since
the 'lection that I can't keep it all
to myself, and concluded I'd indite
a few lines for your considerashun.
My dear old woman (that's Polly
Ann) says she 'blieves I'm sorter
crazy-like since I'd heard that Bill
Allen was 'lectcd. That may all
be true, for thero's no use disputin'
with a woman, you know. It's
enough to cause a good old Demo
crat to become nearly crazy with
joy to hear that we've whipped the
Rads in the great State of Ohio.
It is a proud day for the Democracy,
although it was mighty close work
to win. I could'nt sleep for fear
"Old Bill" would yet be cheated
out of his office, and to learn the
truth of the matter, I loaded up a
few chickens, some butter, and
cabbages, and hitched the old mare
to the wagon, and went to town ac
companied by Polly Ann, who
wanted to buy some calico for our
girls and jeans for tho boys, and
some other nick-nacks. The roads
were heavy, but tlio old mare took
us along right smart, and we reach
ed town at an airly hour.
I let the old woman do the trad
in' and I started for the post-office,
and on the way I met my friend
Gunning, who looked kinder sober.
I asked him what could be the
matter (for I surmised something
wrong), and ho says:
"Well, Josiah, I have good news
on the one hand but bad on the
other. Bill Allen's Tccted sure,
but I went Gunning and did'nt get
i smell of an office."
"Well," says I, kind o' soothing
like, "that's bad for you, but a kig
thing for 'Old Bill'."'
He seemed to feel good over my
last expresshun and smiled upon
the former. I told him game would
be plenticr next time, and with
this remark I passed on to look
after my mail.
I met Mae, our good-looking and
well-bearded Postmaster, at the do
'.very window, but he seemed to
ook bearded in his den, and I ask
"Wrhat's the news, Mac?"
Says he, "Bill Allen's 'lected,"
mil he smiled a ghastly smile as he
handed out my mail.
What everybody said must be
rue, and I never felt happier in
.ny life I felt stouter nnd younger
kan for years, and could hardly
Keep from shouting right there in
the post-office. We have fought
em for twenty years, and it is u
blessed thought to know that we
are conquerors at last.
Well, I went and told the old wo
man the good news, and she was
rejoiced too. We got the goods in
the wagon as soon as possible and
'inrried for home, and tell the good
news to the children and neigh
bors ; and on our way we conclud
"d, as soon as we got home, to kill
one of our nicest, fattest roosters
md have a feast over tho 'lection.
vVhich we did. and there was great
"ejoicing in the household.
Now, friend Bowen, this is not
writ for the papor, but you can do
as you please with it. Next week
I will tell you of something else I
heard while in town. ,
Yours in the cause,
