quite excellent and gave general sat

attendance was not large owing to the
fact that there were services Ju tbe

louoterfelteM Arrested. Tuesday
evening Policeman Hennessey ar
retted lu this city Heury Weaver
and James Wick, of Petersburg,
Wyandot county, upon tbe charge
of passing counterfeit money. The
two men came to this city Tued
day, and were about town all day and
put off' a number of bogus Hit
ver dollars. Towards evening
were aroused as to
their business and Mr. Hennessey
found that Mime of the money had
been paid to P. lieiff and John Court
and tracing the money to these men
they were arrested. They had some
ilO.oOon their persons, neatly done
up in pacbagfs, and it is sup
posed that they got oil considerable
during the day. The wife of Weaver
was with the men a part of the time
and site is susjiected of complicity.
Marshal Mutechler and Policeman
Hennessey went to Petersburg yester
day to look for the "mint" and se
The counterfeit is tolerably well
executed and easily pased on the
unwary. It appears to be cast from
pattern and hence is not as clear
cut as the original, and Is a trifle
smaller. The ring Ls very nearly the
same as a good dollar, although a
trifle sharper. Tbe difference in the
weight is very perceptible as tbe fol
lowing shows :
At present no one knows to what
extent this may have been passed.
It is said that the parties havo been
suspected for some time, and that
officers have been after them, but
no evidence could bo found to
warrant their arrest. People should
boon their guard in taking sliver
money, as the dollar of tbe dads Is
likely to bo a vexation.
Catting affray. G. Kinzer. Friday
evening, at bis farm was cut in tbe
back and shoulder by a fellow named
Fogarty Is an Itinerant fellow a
sort of half tramp and came to tbe
Kinzer House a few days previous to
the affray. Mr. Kinzer employed
him to trim his frul t trees at the
house and afterwards to trim bis
orchard at the farm. Me did not go
tho latter to work for two or three
days and Kinzer, getting tired of
boarding him, told him to leave.
Fogarty got abusive on his hands but
finally went off. Friday evening
Kinzer and his hostler went out ' to
tbe farm to do a little work. The
hostler went into the barn to throw
down some hay bnt came out and re
ported that thero was eome one in
there. Kinzer went in and saw some
ono lying under the hay. He in
quired Mho it was and the fellow,
Fogarty, jumed up and tried to stab
him with a knife. Kinzer jumped
back and picked up a piece of board.
Fogarty then struck at him with a
pitchfork but tbe blow was warded off.
Fogerty caught hold of Kinzer and
struck him twice with a knife. Kin
zer's girls ran out to see what the
trouble was and attacked the fellow
with clubs. He was soon rendered
helpless. Policeman Lamberson, who
was lent out to arrest Fogerty, found
him at a neighbor's and brought him
this city. The man Is considerably
injured and has been taken to the In
firmary until he recovers.

meritorious work is presented to our
citizens, to give it a hearty indorse

fore tbe public which we can more
cheerfully commend to our comma

being introduced to our citizens by
tbe agent, Mr. I. H. Spencer.
It is an epitome of all knowledge.
As au educator In the family, com
bining, as It does, an Encyclopedia,
Dictionary, Gazetteer, and Atlas of
the World, it la undoubtedly the stoat
useful and tiuly valuable work ever
published. The articles aro re
markably varied, showing great
research and accuracy, and
giving every thing of general
and permanent interest. Much money
ta spent uselessly for books of tern
porary interest, but we can assuro our
readers that they will find in this
standard work reading of the most
entertaining character something
that each member of the family will

which accompanies this work la a

among other features, an outlino of

with it, and value it more than all
the books combined that I ever pur

edition of Appleton's Encyclopedia,

Zell's, which does not, and never did
suit me. The more I examined It the
more I was disappointed, and conse

everything I looked for and could not
find in Appleton's. Zell's being an
excellent Encyclopedia ; also a com

T. W. Mc 'i.i stock, Dear Hir. A
careful exatuinatiuu of Zell's popular
Encyclopedia and Atlas bas con
vinced me of its ereat excelience and
convenience. I already have Apple

cyclopedias, but f.iid that Zfll's tx
ceils crnrr of tucnx m comprehr.micc
nr. and in iu special adaptability to
the purpose intended, that of a uui
versal Encyclopedia. Its typograph
ical anil engraved work is very supe
rior, and the eubjects are treated with
a freshness and fullness which sur
prised me. I kuow of no work
which embodies in so small a compass
a like amount of useful information.
It should find a place lu every library.

My Dear His. : I am very glad
that I purchased a set of Zell's Ency
clopedia from you. I had Appleton's
liefore, but I find iu Zsll's many things
not referred to at all in Appleton's, al
though yours is much the cheaper.
Yours truly, SCHUYLER COLFAX.
During my course of study, and in
my professional labors, a period of
about fifteen years, I have had fre
quen t occasion to consult the stan
dard booEs of reference. I have often
laid aside the American, and Cham
ber's which are large and valuable,
with a sense of disappointment because
what I sought could not be found ;
but In turning to Zell's I have rarely
or never failed to find it. I finally
purchased Zell's from a clear convic
tion of its superiority, and throe years
of experience lias confirmed my
choice. Zell is without doubt the most
perfect work in the Euglish language.
It aims to define and illustrate every
work in our magnificent tongue. As
a work of art, also, it combines all
yet attained in tbe sphere of book
makini?. In short, I think it ls tbe
only real Encyclopedia of our language.
