Mn. II. Tj. Woodwaiiu haying tender
ed his resignation as Washington
county's member of the Congressional
committee, tho Executive Committee
took action Thursday by the appoint
ment of M. M. Rose to the position.
Tun speech of Senator Thurston at
Lincoln, Neb., sounded the knell of
the "favorite son" racket started in
New York and Pennsylvania in opposi
tion to McKinley. Ohio's son is the
"favorito son" of nil the people from
Manhattan to the Golden Gate.
An effort will be made by petition to
induce the county commissioners to
put to a vote of the people at the next
November election the question of a
new court house. That the present
edifice is a standing disgrace to the
wealth, intelligence and spirit of the
county is undeniable. Certainly let us
have tho matter yoted upop.
The Republicans of tho Tenth Con
gressional district, west of us,are in a
muddle on the question of selecting
delegates to the National Convention
Under the call of the committee they
are to be chosen by popular vote, but a
certain element of the party opposes
the move strenuously aud'demands the
old-time convention. There is a bare
.possibility that tho fight will be car
ried into the National Convention. It
appears to be simply a case of the per
sonal ambition of certain men to be
delegates at the expense of harmony
and the interests of McKinley.
CAi'T. B. S FitASTin, of the Cincinnati
Chamber of Commerce Committee on
Ohio Itiver improement, has prepared
a comprehensive array of statistics on
the tonnage of the three great systems
of the Upper and Lower Mississippi
and the Ohio rivers, with the appropri
ations for each. His report shems ton
nogc of 1SS9:
Upper Mississippi, tons G,9SS.330
Lower Mississippi, tons G,401.'203
Ohio riyer, tons 10,041,feG0
Total amount of appropriations to
Passengers carried in 1SS9;
Up to 1891 the appropriations were
Mississippi river S4'-0S0.530
Missouri river 0,059,250
Tennessee river 4,215,051
Including ?8,597,500 for work at the
mouth of the Mississippi the total
would be ?50,0b4,0a0. Included in the
Ohio riyer appropriation is the pur
chase of tho Louisville canal. Up to
1895 the Ohio river proper had had
15,454,310.77 in ".pprop-iations.

To view the old historic town
Than from this window where I write
And watch the bbadow ot the hill
Steal slowly o'er the scene, until
The day Is fading Into night.

Of aurlent church with towering spire
And Ivy covrred-wall
And St Clair's homestead o'er the way
And College buildings old and gray
The dearest of them all.

On granite slab and copper plate

And as wo read thy scenes anew
Pass huddled as 11 In review
A perfect panorama of the Past.

After a largo fult crop generally
follows extenlyo planting of now
orchards and tho country is flooded
with treo agents with their gorgeous
fruit plates displaying tho wonderful
good qualities of somo now varioty
which they wish to introduce at good
sound prices, nnd which excol all other
varities. Now, to those that contem
plato planting wo would say glyo the
agent the go-bye, as nlno times out of
ten vou will not got tho kinds ordered,
and instead a worthless, good-for-nothing
fruit. A few years ago a farmer
wishing to plant a largo commercial
orchard gave an agent his order for
1,000 Rome Beauty npplo trees, 1895
was the first of their bearing fruit and
what. was his1 surprise to learn that not
'ouo'dMne'treWthftt fieiaUBeefJ taki
ing great pains with and looked for
ward to for 4nlc(j fruitprovc5t to bo thq
kintl ordered: Jle bid a lirgo crop of
nothing but a poor insignificant Crab,
and this is not an isolated case, the
country is full of such. I would soy to
all those that Intend planting fruit of
any kind, if you cannot procure the
varities wan tod from homo grown
nurseries, before placing your order
with an agent send direct to a reliable
nursery, as then if stock procured does
not prove true to name, you have re
course for damages. Also in planting
confine your list to but few varieties for
winter, strictly one or two varieties.
As to the whole root fad it is nothing
new. In tho earlv nurseries in the
Ohio Valley nothing but whole root
was produced and but one way can
that be done, by. stump ingrafting, a
slow process, in tho rows whore the
trees arc grown; tho ingrafting of to
day is done by whip ingraft process
which is much more expeditious and
profitable as tho work is done largely
within doors during stormy days. I
know where-of I write as having done
tho work more or less for sixty years I
should know something about how it
is done. I am not now in the business
and have no ax to grind, but let me
say if not to late too those that contem-
Lplato planting, go to your home-grown
nurseries, thereby encouraging home
work. Growing of line fruit is one
farm crop that the farmer should take'
Of the crops of 1895 it is estimated
that this Township's, (Belpre) yield is
from 40 to 50 thousand barrels and at
the low prices sold has left to the
growers quite a revenue, and has help
ed many to bridgo over the shortage
of other crops. Farmer.

A Columbus dispatch of the 19th is
as follows: Tho ease of the State
against John P. Ileibel, error to the
Common Pleas Court of Pike County,
moving the question as to what con
stitutes keeping open a .sa'oon on Sun
day, under Section 11 of the Dow law
or Section 8902 of Giauque's statutes,
was argued to the Supreme Court this
morning by Prosecuting Attorney Cald
well for the State, and Mr. Daugherty
and Mr. Middlcton for the defendant.
Ileibel was indicted for keeping his
saloon, in Waverly, open on Sunday.
The testimony showed that his help
went into the place to burnish the
fixtures and clean up, that the proprie
tor, his brothers and several others
were admitted throrgh a back door at
intervals, and that beer was seryed
and oysters sold. The Common Pleas
Judge held that it was not a keeping
open snch as is contemplated by tho
statutes, and'thatin order to constitute
this offense the place should haye been
regularly opened for business as on
week days, and that. It was not suffi
cient that the .place was occupied for
five minutes. I
This construction of tho law is sur
prising, to say the least, and takes
away irom the act much of its power
for beneficial results.

St. Louis, Feb. 20.Mlsmnnagcment,
incompetency and torture ofliclated at
tho .hanging of James Fitzgerald In tho
Four Courts jailyarn Thursday morn
ing. Two reprieves had lengthened
out the misery of tho condemned. At
13 o'clock, midnight, Gov. Stono tele
graphed from Jefferson City that tho
hanging should not take place before
10 a. m. This gave everyono but Fitz
gerald hope of commutation, as the
parents of tho murdered girl wired
strong plcns to tho governor for tho
condemned. Father McErlane labored
Ecduously to comfort his charge, but
Fitzgerald was "Indifferent.
When the tower clock struck 10
Sheriff Troll still hesitated. At tills
moment thesher1it received H'tcleirram

Then the solemn proccssaonrprn tho
condemned man's cell iwgan. Father
McErlane, reading the prayers of tho
church for the dying, supported Fitz
gerald to tho foot of tho scaffold.
Sheriff Troll led him to tho ttnp
and adjusted tho rope and hood
.and the concealed hangman said: "All
right" At exactly 10:17 o'clock the
trap was sprung. Fitzgerald's body
shot downward. Instead; o? stopping
when tho rope's end was reached,
there was. a sharp snap, a wait from
tho unfortunate wretch and' Fitzger
ald's body lay writhing on the ground.
The ropo had .broken. Officers at onco
rushed to tho spot and removed Fitz
gerald to tho morgue. He was still
alive and still conscious. 9 '
"My God. My Go3. My throat," he
llefore the horror-stricken watchers
could touch him ho arose. The doctors
recovered themselves and ,found him
still conscious. Standing Up with the
black cap over his face and tho broken
instrument of death dangling from his
neck, he walked into tho morgue. He
was given stimulants nnd revived.
Ho was more anxious than his execu
tioners for death and begged that the
end come quickly. When a second
ropo was called for none was to be had
and Fitzgerald lay moaning on a blal
in the morgue, while a messenger was
sent a distance of nine squares for a
new rope. Father McErlane bent ovet
tho body of Fitzgerald and recited
prayers. Onco Fitzgerald raised his
hand and pulled the head of the priest
to his face, and whispered earnestly
for half a minute. What that com
munication was will never bo known,
but the face of the priest, then ashy
pale, turned scarlet, and tears fell
from his eyes.
At 10:45 tho messenger arriiged with
a new rope, which wns quickly ad
justed and Fitzgerald was carried to
the scaffold. It was necessary for two
deputy sheriffs to hold him up while
tho nooso was placed. Fitzgerald's
only words were, "Plea6o for .haste."
At 11:02 a. m. the trap was again
sprung. At 11:15 the attending phy
sicians pronounced life extinct and the
corpse was given to relatives. ,,
To say that the community is indig
nant at the sheriff and his assistants is
putting it mildly. Sheriff Troll says
an tne usual tests wero applied to the
death apparatus beforo tho hanging,
and that tho possible scene at tho first
attempt was wholly due to some defect
in tho rope that could not be fore
seen. Makes the Kim Only.

every two years, are equal in value to all the stoves and
