BETTER TEXT BOOKS.
Better school books than those In ceneral
one are demanded by tae people. How to
secure them baa become an Important prob
lem, lor wuen aoru<ilug ueiier is presented
la not always an easy matter to secure
recognition tor It distinctive merits.
We Lave Just completed an examination
of a new aeries of Arithmetics, by Wm. J.
Milne, A, M Principal of the Bute Normal
Bchool at Goneeeo, N. Y. It Is embraced In
two volumes, entitled, respectively. "First
Lessons In Arithmetic'' and "The Practical
Arithmetic" They are npoa the Inductive
plan that is, the pupil receives practical In
struction In the elements of each rule be
fore the rule Itself is Introduced, and thus
tbe mere theory of numbers is displaced by
absolute practice. By this means a deep,
intuitive apprehension of the relation ol
aumbers is cultivated, a result which can
not be encompassed by any ot her plan we
have seen. Methods of calculation are
impressed upon the mind by attractive plo
toral Illustrations, and It Is not too much
to say that these arithmetics possess
recommendations of a higher order than
we generally expect to find In books for
common school Instruction. But they are
no less welcome and valuable on account of
tbelr rarity, la addition to their other
merits they are the most substantially
made books, as well as the cheapest and
most attractive of any of tbe numerous
texts on the subject we nave yet seen.
Another new work which has Interested
ns to no smaU degree is a Grammar Bchool
History of the United Htates by J. O. Kid-
Eath, A. at- Professor of History ana Belles
ettresin toe Indiana Asbury University.
In style and arrangement it appears to us
Inimitable. It Is brilliant, accurate and at
tractive, and its $70 pages present a richer
mineof Instruction than It la possible for an
ordinary writer to comprise within double
tbe eompasa. A mere notice such as we are
attempting will rail to do It Justice. It is
worthy of a searching, exhaustive review.
The few prominent features we ean find
space to refer to ar the progressive maps,
chronological charts, typographical dia
grams, complete Index, pronouncing vocab
ulary and excellent portralbi of distin
guished Americans, The maps are in ac
cord with the best authorities, and are
known to be upon the basis of the govern
ment surveys. Tbe charts are a complete
resume of American and contemporaneous
history. Tbe diagrams Indicate the locality
great iMUUe-nelds and important settle
ments. The portraits are authoritative and
well executed. Besides these important
helps for tbe student, tbe book is replete
with illustrative incident and Instructive
explanation of notable events, and It has
decidedly tbe best arrangement of Its sub
ject rr .alter we have ever seen. There is
notntng ury nor austruse aoout it, out it is
Just the work to interest tbe pupil lu the
history of his country. We can not say as
much for any similar book, and therefore
recommend It as just the history wanted lor
youth. These books are published by Jones

Havlm; personally examined the bearing
trees. Including the original seedling, of
the Heidelberg Peach, propogated by Lyman
White, Esq., of this city, and after exhaust
ing all our resources for criticism and find
ing none adverse, we declare that the trees
are of the most thrilty and hardy growth,
well branched and incomparably proline
bearers ; and we declare that tbe Iruit la the
handsomest golden yellow, with beautiful
rosy tint, plump, full, smooth skin, and of
fine velvety down, challenging language
to appropriately describe Its beauty,
After sampling and eating the Heidel
berg peaches, grown upon different trees, we
further declare, that we have never seen or
tasted a variety more sweet, juicy and de
licious, and the peach flavor more perfectly
And we, the guests here convened, take
pleasure In having the opportunity afforded
us to test the qualities of this superb variety
of fruit, which has crowned the persistent
efforts of Mr. White, and proven Itself
reality lor five bearing seasons. Ami we
Jirmlve, That In our Judgment and belief

varieties of peaches mow grown and

Mr. President, Ladies and Gen
tlemen : I am full or gratitude, and
I thank yon from the bottom of my
heart. Iam full to overflowing for
this manifestation of your respect,
and 'your compliment for my pet
care. I feel that I have the best
peach that grows. It has been my
pet care tor eight years since tbe
first bearing. I thought then that It
was something superior, and I was
ureed by my neighbors and friends to
take care of and develop it. Each
bearing season convinced me more
and more of its superior merit. Three
years ago I invited some of my
friends to test Its qualities, among
wnora was Mr. Muddle, editor or tbe
Tiffin Star, who wrote It up and gave it
such a highly colored description that
1 took renewed interest and determin
ed to propagate tbe fruit, I have now
twenty-five trees that will bear tbe
next bearing season. Then I shall
have tbe whole county test its merits.
I have also 3,000 young trees budded.
I now oiler SoOO to tbe world to pro
duce tbe equal of ray peach, Includ
ing Its wood and bearing qualities,
within the next five years, to bs test
ed here, and I appoint Dora Pedro,
tbe Sbab of Persia (where tbe peach
first originated), and U. S. Grant, all
of whom are great travelers and good
judges of fine things, to decide upon
the merits, and I call on you .Repub
lican friends present to have Hon.
Cbas. Foster, our representative In
Coneress, to request tbe President of
the United States to notify, through
our foreign representatives in those
countries, the dignataries of my selec
tion of tbem as suoh committee and
And further : 1 oiler Siou for tbe
equal of my peach to be produced
within tbe united States, with
in five years, to be inspected
aud tested on these grounds, the
judges to be selected, two by tbe
President of the United States, and
one by Seneca county."

Mr. Lvinan White, of Tiffin. O.. havine
named a peach reared by himself in honor
o( our institution, and having invited us to
come and see it on the trees, eat of it and
express our candid opinion as to its quali
ties aud comparative merits, we hereby
certify that we have seen and eaten of tbe
"Heidelberg Peach" and can confidently
pronounce It the finest peach of all with
which we have any acquaintance. The tree
Is hardy, a vigorous grower and a great
bearer. The fruit is above medium size, of
regukur form, rich flesh, yellow color, and
most delicious flavor. In a word, we re-
srd this peach an acquisition worthy of the
'oreiuoHt rank In peach culture, aud can
not too highly commend Mr. White's enter
prise and assiduity in this direction.

SANDUSKY COUNTY. FIRE AT PUT-IN-BAY.
The Work of Thieves.
The Sandusky Register of Saturday
last says ot tbe fire at Put-In-Bay on
Friday night : '
There was great excitement In this
city last evening over the announce
ment that the Put-in-Bay House, tbe
famous Island hotel, was on fire.
Tbe flames were plainly visible from
this elty at eight o'clock, two hours
after the building caught fire. At the
latter boar tbe streets in tbe business
portiot ot the city were thronged
with peop, all eagerly seeking In
formation in relation to the fire, and
great regret was expressed wben it
became positively kaown that tbe
Pat-in-Bay House and other buildings
were burning, with little or no pros
pect or checking the flames. In re
sponse to telegrams sent bere for aid,
a fire steamer, fully manned and
equipped, was dispatched te Put-In-Bay
on the steamer Ferris. A Regit
ter reporter went over on tbe boat,
but previous to bis arrival at tbe Is
land the following special dispatch
was received by us from there :
PUTIN-BAY, August 30.
At six o'clock this evening fire was
discovered in the cupola of the Put-In-Bay
House. The guests, about 2o0 In
number, were promptly warned and
tbe rooms were speedily emptied of
clothing and valuables. There was a
great deal of eonfnslon for a time, but
all property was saved except tbe ho
tel building, a frame structure, about
seven hundred feet long ana inree
stories high, which cost $75,000. It
was completely destroyed ; Insured
for its value though not perhaps for
its cost The furuiture was all saved.
There were some trifling losses of
jewelry, and several hundred dollars
In money collected ror tbe yellow
fever sufferers, and In tbe hands of
tbe ladies who bad collected It. There
was no lose of life and nobody hart
except Col. Sweney, manager of the
hotel, who was slightly bruised.
At two o'clock this morning the
Register reporter who was sent to
Put-in-Bay to ascertain tbe facts in
relation to the fire returned to this
city, making the trip on the tng Mys
tic. On the arrival of the steamer
Ferris at the Island the firemen who
went from this city began throwing
water on tbe ruins of the Pat-ln-Bsy
Hoase, tbe building having been
burned to tbe round an hour before
the arrival of tbe boat The fire from
tbe Put-In-Bay Hoase bad communi
cated to the Bing House and Dollar's
shoe store, both of which were burned
to the ground. The furniture of tbe
Bing Hoase and Doller's stock of
boots and shoe were saved, but In a
damaged condition. The fire hail ex
tended on tbe east ti tbe Put-In-Bay
House saloon, kept by Wm. Toker.
Tbe building was totally destroyed.
Tne billiard tables and considerable of
the stock were saved. Nine Windings
in all wire destroyed.
Tbe loss on the Put-In-Bay House
Is estimated at about $ V00 ; Insured
for $40,0110. Tbe Bing Hoase building
was Insured for f-VKW ; restaurant and
ball, 3,0ou ; furniture, $2,500. Iiil
ler's Insurance on hoilding, stock, and
furniture was $4,00o. The Put-In-Bay
Hoase saloon was not Injured.
Tb supposition is that the fire was
the work of an Incendiary. It was
thought an the Island last flight that
tbe Put-in-bay House was fire I by a
mob of thieves, who, durlne the ex
citement Incident to the burnlDg of
tbe building, broke Into various
rooms in thai tiotei, ransai:aeii bu
reaus, trunks, etc., aud stole a large
amount of personal property. It was
reported that one lady loat S1.20U
worth of doming ; auomer j-.'ssj
worth of diamonds, and various other
guests lost jewelry, money and cloth
ing from tbelr roona.

THE COST OF WHEAT.
Profit and Loss Account of an Ohio
Farmer, With the Results
My wheat is threshed aud sold, and
as I have kept an account of expen
ses, I can show to the dollar wbat the
profit Is. I wish the reader to under
stand that there Is no gaees work
about this, for the account was ket
regularly with the wheat and tbe
work charged as it was done. The
wheat bas all Nn weighed but thir
teen sacks, which we kept for seed,
and we estimated them at inst what
tbe others averaged, and "nr sack
were all filled alike, four h bu Ueia,

have also measured tbe lid with a
surveyor's ebalo, and find .hat what
I called the six-acre flelJ, nieas
ore six and fl vo-eigbths a -re. The
mall Held measures Just " acre.
My estimates of the eoet of :.e two
acres was $.50.40, and at the larger
field $77 ; bat as there Is five-eighths
of an acre more than I had suptHsed,
I will mid $5 to cover the extra ex-pvusi-
aod l fur haollug to the mill
(one and a half miles) where f sold it.
Tbe expense then of this wheat erop

mate of expense I had already al

Mary bad a little corn
Upon her little toe.
And everywhere that Mary went
The corn was sure to go.
And to the eoollug ocean's shore
It followed her one day ;
Bat the little ache corn was so sore
Hhe couldn't play crctueL
"What makes the com hart Mary so 7"

'Because alia wears her boots so tight,"
A looker-on replied.
"And yon a little lamp upon

And when the doctor died It down
it quiet did remain.
Till Mary hit It at "roquet."
And then It hurt again.

That Toledo Nuisance.
We suggested that the disturber of
the Sherman meeting at Toledo were
probably hired by so rue peraoos who
have become notorious for their vil
lainous methods of political aud per
sonal warfare. Secretary Sherman
told an Enquirer reporter that tbe dis
turbers ware but few and were cf tbe
lowest class of roughs. Tnese are not
such as are moved by ideas of finance.
A letter to the Toledo Wade glvaa
teatl mooy to thus origin, as follows :
"At tbe Union Railway Depot on
Tuesday evening were Isaac It Sher-
ood, S. 8. Lin too, Mberltr, and
others. Tbe subject of the Opera
House was discussed, wben Sherwood
(referring to tbe treatment of Kecre
tary Sherman) said: 'It served him
right,' and went oa to justify auth
language by aaylng tbat Mr. Hberman
bad 'no busloeos to be tbere" tbat It
was 'ia violation of civil service rule'
for bim to discuss financial queatloua
before the people. Mr. Ltntou listened
to thrste remarks by Hberwood and
took part ia the conversation, and
tacitly assented to Sherwood's ex
pressions." Tbls will naturally ogt tbe other
member of the Sherwood firm. By
putting thews things together, with
the fact that the Enquirer epecial re
porter at Toledo, wbu sent a fals ac
count of this disturbance, represent
ing It as participated io by tbe wool-
meeting, and as a representation of
Toledo public sentiment. Is a Loui of
this 11 rm, the Toledo people can know,
ir toey want to, now tbat uisgraceiut
rowdyism was hired. Uazttte
