scarcely adapted to the ajthetic desires of our

less complaint on the score mentioned since

AXOTIIE1C HOTEL CUAyaE.
Mr. Ilarry 1. llickfielrt lenses the Ta
Cuuda House for Three Veers.
The announcement that Mr. II. L. Rock
field, proprietor of the Arcade Hotel, has
leased and taken possession of the Lagonda
House, will, no doubt, come in the nature of
a surprise to most of the citizens of this city.
To a few such a thing has been suspected for
some time, but as nothing definite resulted
nothing could be said about it in these col
umns. For some time before the assignment
of Mr. Carter, late proprietor of the Lagonda
House, negotiations had been going on be
tween the Champion Hotel Company and Mr.
Rock Geld Kith this object in view, and its
consummation was probably hurried some
what by the as-igniaent.
At four o'clock yesteidiy afternoon the
papers were signed transferring the bouse to
Mr. Rocklield for three years and he took po
session immediately. .Minor matters
are not fixed np as yet and therefore no de
tails can be given. Mr. John McGonigal, at
one time clerk at the Lagonda nouse, was
placed in charge temporarily. Mr. Rockfield
telegraphed at once to his brother-in-law,
Mr. W. R. Snipe?, a conductor on the I. B.
& W. from Columbus to Indianapolis, asking
him to come here and take charge of the
Lagonda House. Whether he will come or
not is uot known, but certain it is, if he
should, a more popular man could not be
secured for the position. The Lagonda
House will be run as a first class hotel and

The February meeting of the Clark County
Board of Agriculture was held in the board
room, west County building, a quorum pres
ent; President Hazzard in the chair. Dr.
Haxsard from committee on County Institate
stated that arrangements were about com
plete and that the full programme, with as
signments for each of the three days, Thurs
day, Friday and Saturday, March 19, 20 and
21, would be published early next week. J.
0. Ogden had been appointed and bad under
taken to arrange tor good music at the meet
ings, which as now understood would be
held in the npper hall at the court-honse.
Posters and circulars would be
ready for distribution at the next
meeting of the board and he hoped
there would be a lull attendance of members
to receive and distribute them. The matter
of finances was discussed, and the ptesident
stated a number of citizens of Springfield
city had volunteered to entertain the lectur
ers from abroad. There was good prospect
of the most interesting and beneficial insti
tute yet held.
A communication was read from Secretary
S. Alexander, of Jamestown Union Fair, in
viting the co-operation of this society in the
organization of a county fair circuit, to in
clude agricultural societies of Greene,
Clark, Warren, Clinton, Ross, Cler
mont and Brown counties. The object
is to regulate times of holding the
annual exhibitions in counties named to as
not to conflict one with the other, and
also to fix upon uniform rates for entries,
admission, etc, and as to issue of passes or
doing away with them entirely. It was
thought advisable to become more fully in
formed on the subject, and Secretary L. B.
Sprague was, on Mr. Elder's motion, elected
delegate to represent this society at a meet
ing to be held in Manchester next Thursday,
Feb. 19th, the Board agreeing to bear his
A bill of $200 from Jerry Murphy, for

for investigation and report as to the liability
of this Board for the claim.

Mr. A. J. McBlair, the genial and popular
gentleman who has been behind the desk at
the Lagonda House for the past eighteen
months, severed his connection Saturday
evening when the house went into the bands
of Mr. H. L. Rockfield. By his resignation
the Lagonda House has lost one of the most
popular and efficient hotel men that has ever
been in this city. It is a pleasure, however,
to state that in all probability Springfield
will not lose Mr. McBlair as
a citizen, as he has been- offered several lu
crative positions here. In bis connection
with the hotel business in this city, Mr. Mc
Blair has served both as a clerk and as a
manager, and in both capacities has made a
host of friends. He leaves tomorrow evening
tor Washington, D. C, and will return about
the 7th of March. Wherever he goes his
many friends wish him success.

The Connecticut Mutual Life.
In its thirty-nine years of business the
Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance Company
has received lrom its members, in premiums,
$137,558,478.17; it has received tor interest
o its invested funds and rents. $40,721,016.14:
and profit and loss, $645,917; a grand total
ot 184 925,411.31. This money has been
used as follows: Paid tor death losses and en
dowments, $54,021,457.23; surplus returned
to policyholders, $41,500,603 60; allowed up
n lapsed and surrendered policies, $16,731,
189.86; expenses, $15,262,768.87; taxes, $5,
194,641.26; held in "net assets" for reserve,
etc, $52,217,650.49; total, $184,925,411.31.
Such an exhibit furnishes the most conclusive
proof that prudently managed life insurance
has done and can do all that-its promoteis
claim, to wit: furnish indubitable protection
to the family against the money loss that
comes in the death of its bead. And, in this
direction, this great Company has done its
full share to prove, as the celebrated Profes
sor De Morgan once asserted, that "there is
nothing in the commercial world which ap
proaches; even remotely, the security ot a
well-established lite office." As the same
authority farther says: "The certainty is
the thing contracted for." And, just
here, comes in the indisputable
fact that the Connecticut Mutual
has not only fulfilled all tbet-e conditions in
the past, but the company remains in even
better position of guarantee to policy-holders
for the time to come. There is no need of
repating here the trustworthy statements
made or figures given in the company's an
nual exhibit. They tell their own story with
definite and sufficient impressiveness. Let
them be read and studied, and no one will be
left in doubt as to the ability, honesty and
stability ot this old and bonorab.e life insur
ance company, as regards its contracts with
those who entrust the guardianship of their
widows and children to an executorship so
thoroughly tested and so carefully and con
