o mysterious disappearance ot a
team at tho Commercial PoiLt barbecue
several days ago created quite a sensation
through the county. The mystery is clear
ed up, and, like many other seemingly un
accountable things, proves to be very com
mon-place. Somo boys, were out a d iy or

the tree, but did nod the team, fast among

The whole righting and managing
force of the Republican party in the United
States, and all the money at its command,
were thrown into Ohio, on the theory that
Republican defeat in Ohio in October was
Republican defeat forever. And now the
life of the Republican party hangs on the
slender thread of 11,000 plurality in a Btate
that has delivered its electoral vote to every
candidate for the Presidency nominated by
tho Republican party prior to this year.

The superlative goodness of some of
the BUiue Republicans reminds us of that
of a "sanctified" chap of whom we lately
read. A young lady who was spending tho
summer at the Loveland camp ground, in
her morning walk chanced to meet a little
tellow of four or five years, who addressed
her thus: "Are you good? I'm awful
good; my pa's sanctified, my ma's sancti
fied, I'm sanctified, our folks all sanctified,
I'm awful good, I'm good as God." "Oh,"
said Miss C, 'shocked at his innocence,

The Czarina of Russia said recently

Without being a bad wan, he had no firm
journalist, he belonged to the schoo
which the elder Dennett was the expounder
and founder. Out of nothing, by the force
of the mind in him, he has created a eret
newspaper and became a great intellectual
power without being, except indirectly, a
moral one. He simply served tho times
and the times served him. His paper was
aptly called "The Times," for it reflected
them as they were. As tho paper expand
ed under the ideas in tho fertile brain con
ironing it, each issue became a microcosm
a reflection of the world in miuature.
It became great in tho same sence that Stor
ey was great. If it did not make the world
better, it did its share in teaching tho
world to know itself. It was simply a part
and parcel of the nineteenth eenturv
which cultivates intellect at tho cxpenso of
conscientious conviction. Now that its
founder is dead, tho paper remaius to speak
for him, giving daily a truer epitaph than
will bo found on his tombstone, and a tru
er reflection of his virtues and failings than
will be found in tho funeral sermon to be
preached over his remains."

The object for which the tax is needed, and
to be set apart for, as provided in tlio ord
submitting tho question, ;is to repair and
improve the county court houso and jail
and yard. The court houso and jail woro
built many years ago at a heavy cost to tlio
county, and since have had - but slight rc
pairs, until now a thorough rcpaiilng is M
flohtcly required to prevent serious damage
and loss to this property by future decay.
Most of you are funiliar with tho bad
condition of the building and know the
necessity for repairs.
Tho regular county tax doos not bring
sufficient revenue to properly defray the
ordinary expenses of administering tho af
fairs of the county, and wo cau only raiso
the funds needed for theso repairs and Im
provements by an additional tux. Wo be
