An old farmer, returning
from the wedding oi a niece
in a distant city, was eagerly
questioned by his family as to
the bride's costume. "Well,"
said he, "she had some kind
of a dress with a lot of flub
duDbery ot some sort or
'nother down the front of it,
a thing-a-ma-jig on the back
' of it, with a long tail of some
stuff I don't know what it
was dragging out behind,
and a lot of flip-flap flounces
over the whole thing. There
wasn't no arms to it, and she
had a lot of white truck, soft
and floppy-like, on her head,
and that's just all I know

New York, September 4 A dlspttcb
from Ellsworth, Me., to the Mail and Ex
press says: Your correspondent has lute.-
vlewed the, Hon. James G. Blaine, at Sena
tor Hale's residence. In this sprightly town.
Mr. Blaine Is In fine form, and everywhere
he goes the people of the Pine Tree State
Hock to welcome and-hear him.
Mr. Blaine said In effect that the fishing
season Is over; nearly all the American
vessels have returned, and Canada will
have none to operate upon till the summer
of 1889. In the meantime anything
she may or may not do Is a matter of
supreme Indifference to the fishermen.
Therefore It Is better not to clothe tbe pres
ent president with any additional powers,
since he has shown his utter Incompetency
to deal with the general subject, but let
him carry out tbe present law. as be Is
bound to do, and this alone may bring
Canada to her senses and secure us justice
nt her hands. For republicans to vote for
tbe bill reported by Mr. Belmont's commit
tee In tbe house of representatives would
be a confession by them that the president's
conduct in refusing to carry out the
present law was justified, and would
put a power Into his hands which
he would wield for partisan purposes.
It Is much better to let the matter He
over till the new administration shall come
In, which will be better prepared to handle
the matter, free from the excitements of
our pending political contests, and in ample
time to protect every Interest, lo allow
the president now to stop the export bus
iness of Canada through the United States
would seriously Interfere with several of
our home transportation lines, especially
those leading to Portland, and correspond
ingly depress tbe entire commerce at tbis
port It would also afford Canada a pre
text for Increasing her demands in retalia
tion for such Inhibition, and render more
difficult the general settlement by negotia
tion. The rights of the Pacific coast should
also be remitted to the new administration.

An Interesting- Meeting- l-aat J'I-ht Rait
ing Companies for the Brigade.
The Buckeyes held their regular weekly
meeting last night, with a good attendance.
President Jennings and Secretary Snyder
were both In their places. One new appli
cation was received and referred. Since
the matter of a uniformed rank has been
abandoned by the club It was suggested
that it would be well to organize compan
ies in the club to Join the Harrison and
Morton Plug Hat Brigade. The matter
was discussed at some length, and it was
evident that the purpose in reorganizing
the Plug Hat Brigade was not thoroughly
understood by some of the members. It
may probably be well to refer to the
subject now. The Plug Hat Brigade Is
not a new organization, it Is the oldest
political organization in the county, ana in
its purpose does not interfere with any
other, for In its objects it Is entirely differ
ent and Independent. It is a union of old
clubs and republicans not members of any
club. Tbe different clubs can and shoe'd
organize plug hat companies, within their
membership, to join tne urigaae. mere
will also be companies. Independent of any
club organization, composed of those repub
licans who belong to none of the perma
nent clubs of the city and county, and who
have no desire or taste to belong to any
club, but who are desirous of belonging to
a company of the Plug Hat Brigade. There
are plenty of such republicans In
Clark county and this Is their organization.
It Is simply a combination of all clubs and
of all republicans outside the clubs. Its
doors are wide open for all. This much in
way of explanation.
With this in view the Buckeye club last
night decided to recruit several companies
ot fifty or more members each, which com
panies will become a part of the brigade
A recruiting committee of five was ap
pointed by the chair as follows: P. M.
Cartmell, Samuel WUkerson, Arthur Mor
rill. Captain Mark Smith and Timothy
Ltddy. These gentlemen are each expected
to recruit a company of fifty or more men
each, from tbe membership ot the club.
which will compose the Buck
eye club battalion of the Harri
son and Morton Plug Hat
brigade. The different recruiting officers
are at work today, ana oy nine o clock tnis
forenoon Mr. Samuel WUkerson bad se
cured sixty-three names, which makes his
company full, which, under the motion,
entitles his company to the position of com
pany "A." In tbe Buckeje club batauion ot
the brigade. What position they will oc
cupy in the brigade remains for the officers
of that organization todetermln.

After a Week of Camp Life the Soldier
Bojs Fold Their Tents and Depart for
Regarding tbe closing exercises and inci
dents of Camp Sheridan, this morning's
Columbus Journal has the following, from
which it will be seen that Springfield's cel
ebrated Big Six was an important factor:
The last grand review occurred last night
by request of Governor Foraker, the entire
infantry, artillery and cavalry of the state
appearing upon the ground--for'''
mignlncenl demonstration at tbe same
time. There " were not so
many visitors as upon tbe previous after
noon, but It was believed that the the
military display, in discipline and
promptness was superior. Govemir
Foraker and staff rode up and down the
line before the troops passed In review
and it was noticed that the different or
ganizations were on their mettle for the
last chance to evince superiority at
Camp Sheridan. Besides Governor Foraker
rode Governor Lounsbury, of Connecticut,
who was more than pleased at the splendid
appearance of tbeOhlo troops. As usual, the
Toledo Cadets carried off tbe palm, being
frequently applauded tin the line of march.
All the uniforms were not uniform, an offi
cer appearing occasionally with partly fa
tigue and partly dress, but the Inconsistency
was only noticed by the military critics.
Governor Foraker and staff were escorted
to and from the parade ground by the
Cleveland troops. After tbe troops had
been reviewed, the artillery, under orders
from Colonel bmlthknlght, tired a sa
lute of seventeen guns, and also
did some shooting with the Git
llng guns. The parade and re
view made supper late, but the bojs
were In splendid humor, as no unneces
sary time was lost in getting ready. Gov.
Foraker and staff, with several visitors, re
turned to headquarters, where the Gover
nor was serenaded by tbe Big Six band with
the Thirteenth regiment He acknowledged
tbe compliment by shaking hands with
each of the members and expressing
his gratification at being favored with the
serenade. The Big Six Is the largest small
band in camp, though their reputation is
too extensive to warrant any encomiums.
Tbe commissary, with Colonel Trost as
chief steward, and an able corps of chtfs.
was one of tne features ot tiie camp.
Colonel Trost Is never left, as the staff
welt know, and he will be a welcome ac
cession to the ranks of the guard.
The boys began to pack up after supper.
anticipating a general rush and a demand
for transfer wagons this morning. A great
many spent tbe early evening hours In
making parting calls, and the more
demonstrative amused themselves .by
donning fantastic costumes and pa
rading the company streets with
unearthly noises. By the time the last
train was due nearly all the visitors were
at the station, leaving Camp Sheridan with
unusual regret, the parting being that of
sincere friends. Camp Sheridan has made
fast friends, and In associations will live in
the memory of hundreds who never met

Rend I ox a Chapter of Humor From the
(lifted l'ena of Court Depntlee Some
Fun to Witness The Effect upon
John T.Norrls has a cold.aurorn borcalte,
arctic, furilned nerve that passeth all un
derstanding. Yesterday he rang County
Clerk Babbitts up by telephone from Troy,
Ohio, and asked him to read a whole sec
tion out Tit one of the court records, to set
tle a little matter In which John Is interest
ed. The record is about two feet long.
eighteen Inches wide and weighs not less
than twenty pounds. The accommodating
clerk luggea it out to tne telephone, cocked
up one knee by placing his left foot firmly
against the wall, put the book on
it and proceeded to read Norris a few
bright thoughts from such leading authors
as Mr. Dan Cushlng, Mr. Wm. Claypool
and other genial humorists, who have jot
ted down little Incidents about the county
courts. This expurtc humor and pendente
(tie wit is well worth perusal and even
Mr. Babbitts did not punctuate his voice
any whatever. It Is some distance to Troy,
O , about twenty-five miles, and in order
to make himself heard that distance, Harry
had to literally sun his lnngt and maintain
a high tartS If he wanted John to hear him.
Harry's attitude as he stood there with his
means of locomotion succinctly tied in a
knot the heavy and cumbrous volume ot
jokes huddled up against him, the ear

hearing and his mobile mouth stuck clear
into the 'phone next to Norris's little voice.
was funnier than most anything.
"Can yon hear me?" he yelled at Norris
In a voice like that of an umpire, winning
the decisive run for the home club.
"That ain't the case I mean," returned
the detective with a low, pulsing Miami
"1 asked yon ir yon could hear me,"
whispered Harry In a shriek. The Re pub
lic reporter Is willing to swear that he
could have heard Harry In Troy without
the assistance of tbe telephone wire.
"les," John finally admitted In an
electrical falsetto. "I want you
to read the bur-r-r-r-r-gee-gee geo-gee-b-r-r
r-r-r," the telepBbne soliloquized.
"Oh, you do, do you?" t said Harry, In a
hoarse yell, "perhaps you would just as
leare have that remark set to words or
broken up Into English."
When you distribute sarcasm along
twenty-five miles of elevated wire over
which perhaps a dozen other people are
holding a tete e tcte, it loses its briskness at
tbe end of the line, and becomes mild.
H e e y?" ventured John at the
Troy end, "read that sentence agin. I
didn't quite ketch what you said about the
defendant being charged with a nolle
Ltsten," screamed Harry, witn his eye
balls sticking out "listen," and be shook
his fist at John's puny, consumptive little
voice in tbe ear-phone, "bow listen, dll
blast It, till I read thisr-recordll Do
you hear ME? I have a rattier impor

prespirlng brow on John Smith's motion to
make the petition more definite and cer
"All right; go on," said NorrL", who
bad caught a few opening words.
Harry thereupon pulled out the throttle,
opened all tbe stops, yanked out the "open
diapason" valve, pushed down on all the
pedals, rung for the whole chorus, sig
nalled the orchestra, called out all the solo
ists, and let go In one grand crashing en
semble of vocal pyrotechnics, the first word
ot which made John murmur "Gosh,"
over at Troy. Harry quoted in a broad,
piercing, agonizing shriek from the records
for fully ten minutes. He told of how the
plaintiff asked that the petition be made
more definite and certain to be overruled,
and then dwelt darkly on the clause
In which the death ot the defendant
was hinted at or in the covert cowardly
language of the record, simply suggested.
Assassination hinted at by innuendo! Mur
der reduced to writing! And yet tbe clerk's
"sonralto" voice never grew dim, nor did
his voice-laden neck wither. He read rleht
straight on till he came to the end, -when
he pushed back his eyes and listened for
Norris, while he panted in great throbs,
exhausted but triumphant
Finally, the thin little photograph of
Norris's voice trickled through the 'ear
phone and Hairy listened. It said:
"Hello 1 Ready? Well, then. I wish
yon would read me that record I ast you

sore In the joints, but he had made Norris

The lecture room of the First English
Lutheran church was well filled last (Mon
day) night to hear Dr. J. H. W. Stucken
berg lecture upon "Jesuitism and Social
ism la Germany." The audience was more
than pleased In fact delighted and In
The doctor, after a brief Introduction,
discussed at length the three great move
ments outside ot the Evangelical church in
Germany: Jesuitism, Infidelity ana so
cialism. Jesuitisst, he said, was a revival
of Medieval Rome, rather an attempt to
revive It, by making prominent the Infalli
bility of the Pope and emphasizing the
Papal Idea that the "Church" must do the
MiMno for a man, especially on all re
Infidelity, Dr. S. said, was In Germany,
lanrelr supported by the Materialistic wing
of the Physical Scientists, who take the
data furnished by Darwin and reach con
clusions which Darwin mmseit repuniateo.
The question with them w not "What Is
God?" but "is there aGnd?" Their leaders.
who, said Dr. S., are not "first-class scien
tists," answer tbe question in the negative,
and, ot course, have a large following
among those "Whose heart's wish Is that
there were no God."
Socialism, the doctor said, was not In
Itself atheistic, hence many Christiana In
Germanv mav be found In their ranks
some of them eminent scholars. Tbe fun
damental nroposltlon of the socialist Is that
"Labor is the basis of value of capital. "
In the development of their theory they
discard the Christian and philosophical Idea
ot government and hold that society Itself
"made the laws" and "society itself must
unmake them." At the same time, he
said, there was very little of the dynamite
theory in their speeches or books
they propose a peaceful revolution but
are hard at wort, well organized, to bring
shout such revolution as soon as possible.
While Germany has the best police force
in the world, and it Is at Its best in Berlin,
yet the socialists In that city carried on their
secret work ana aisirioutea wousanas oi
their tracts, papers and other documents
The doctor, in answer to a question from
the audience, gave as his opinion that so
cialism was the danger most to oe rearea
at the present time In Germany.
At tbe close ot the lecture, which was an
hour In length and eloquent the doctor
answerea several pointed questions wnicn
the audience bad been Invited to make.
Drs. Helwig, Ebrenfelt Wilkinson, Fal
coner, Oscar T. Martin and others plied
questions for half an hour at a rapid rate.
all ot which were promptly and satisfac
torily answered, lie supported the .asser
tion of Joseph Cook that In tbe Iarga Ger
man universities the Evangelical professors
today had the largest number of students.
The "Questions and Answers" at the close
were quite as Interesting to the audience as
the lecture Itself. Tho doctor made a fine
fimpiesslon. "" "" '-
A ROUSING MEETINC7'

The Young Men's Republican Club met
last nlgbt in regular session. The meeting
was enthusiastic and tbe club room was
filled to overflowing with the members, wbo
came to hear Messrs. Rawlins and J. F.
McGrew discuss the political Issues of the
Before the speaking the question ot uni
forming the club was considered and after
a little parley and talk it was decided to
adopt the old white plug bat which was
used in tbe brigade four years ago. Tbe
chairman next Introduced Mr. Frank Mc
Grew as a republican, a protectionist and
a friend to rights and liberty. Mr. McGrew
made a ringing republican speech in which
he denned the Important questions now be
fore the American people, and" was loudly
applauded In his remarks on the southern
question of violence and the Intimidation,
which be talked on at some length and ex
plained with much satisfaction to hi
hearers. Mr. Rawlins next took the door
and brought down the house with his humo
rous remarks In regard to the present, ad
ministration ana contrasted tne prosperity,
peace and plenty, promised by tbe democ
racy four years ago, with the present Irre
gularities and paralysis of the business and
financial interests or the country, together
with civil service reform and their oppo
sition to second terms In Cleveland's lu
naugral address and which have all been
violated. The meeting and speakers were
at their best and three cheers were given
for Harrison and Morton and a groan

BOUND FOR THE CENTENNIAL.
The Great Mastodon Will Tain In the
Greatest Show oa JIarth.
Some time ago the city papeis published
an accconnt of the finding of the parts of a
skeleton of a mastodon in a gravel pit near
Catawba, and quite a detailed description
ot the Immense bones was Indulged In by
Monday Mr. Newton Conway brought to
the city those bones and placed them In
charge ot the centennial committees to be
sent to Columbus and placed on exhibition.
A Republic man saw them and they are
simply immense. They evidently belong
ui Dome auimai oi mammotn growth, and
are yet In a comparatively mod
state of preservation. The ribs measure at
least four feet and a half In length and the
pelvis bone was fully three and one-half
feet across. The bones of the legs were
from three to four feet in lenrtfa. and si
one time must have framed a part of the
running-gears of a huge species ot animal
which long since ceased to do business In
this neck o' woods.
Should the old fellow's ehost or soma of
his representatives suddenly make Its ap
pearance In the neighborhood of Catawba,
that section would undoubtedly become
suddenly depopulated, and he would have
ireeaom to rove the fields over, without
any human to molest him or mabnhlm
