We need more Hotel accommoda
tion, in Eaton, and it is a great pity
to our place that tho Doty House was
permitted to be closed.- We hope
there will bo something done in this
matter before the Juno term of Court
commences.
As some of the late Doty House
hoarders have been obliged to accept
"any port in a storm" for grub and
repose, we'll just mention that Sheriff
Townsend hs several very excellent
vacant rooms to let. Access easy, aud
terms moderate.
The lateness of the season will pre
vent considerable amount of tobacco

The travelling public will be glad
to know that the Local Accommoda

Larkix Norman, an old farmer and
citizen of Preble county, died at his
residence, about six miles south-west
of Eaton last week, after a short ill
ness. Mr. Xorman was a respectable
and honest man, and will be missed
in the circle of his acqnaintance.
' While at Columbus" we met our old
fellow-citizen, Judge G-ilmot.e, of the
Supremo - Court, who appears to be
pleasantly situated, but hard, at work.
Also, his associate justice, Judge
White, upon both of whom tho judi
cial ermine seems to rest easily.
Tho fellow who is butchering the
locals for the Kegistek, reminds us of
the story of the old hen that discovcr
a rainbow hued egg in her nest, placed
there by a misehioveoHs boy. Think
ing that it was one of her own prog
eny, she cackcled herself to death in
fifteen minutes. Unless somebody
finds -another egg for this clucking
rooster, he'll exhaust himself.
Tho weather, unfortunate young
man, will soon bo pleasant-enough for
yon to beat the carpets. Some morn
ing you will get tip .and find your
wifo flying around- the room with a
handkerchief on her head, and a tack
hammer in her hand and fire in her
eve. Then you want to climb into
your garments, drop out of tho win
dow and make tracks for to go Ash
ing.
Buy a Home.
Every laboring poor man should
buy himself a town lot get that paid
for aud then work to add the neces
sary improvement A little here and
a little there will in due time produce
you a home of your own, and place
you ont of the landlord's grasp. Re
member that fifty dollars a year saved
in rent, will in a very few years pay
for yonr own home,' aud the money it
costs you to move and shift about,
without any loss of furniture aud
time, pay the interest ofa.fivo hun
dred dollar judgment agatnst -your
property until you can gradually re
duce it to nothing. - -You ean all buy
in that way why do yon not risk it?
If you fail you are no worse rof if
you succeed, as any carofiil man is
sure to do, you .have made a home
and established equal to another
which will start you into business.
Very Sad!
As we passed over . to the Court
House, on Monday last, we observed
Dennis Lewellcn engaged on the pub
lic square removing tho last vestiges
of the ancient "Mound "Builders."
Seeing this beautiful relict of antiqui
tv being defaced, we at once interpos
ed an objection to thus defacing the
mementoes of the dead, when" thedes-
ecrator informed us that he was.oper
ating under the order of the Commis
sioners, as they supposed some valua
ble treasure might have becu deposit
ed there, which would; enable them to
refit ike town clock aird once more
put it in motion. With this explana
tion we felt somewhat relieved, and
said no more. Before going to press
we have learned that one of tho Com
missioners had been on the ground,
and expressed himself highly pleased
with the prospect of sncccss, as some
charcoal and metal trinkets have al
ready been found, and it was thought
either gold or Eilver was near at hand,
amply sufficient to refit the town clock
and compensate fos the work.
Home Manufactories.
One of the greatest s.ourccs"0f wealth
and prosperity to any community is
its manufactories. No town becomes
populous and prosperous city with
out manufactories, and. no town or
city having extensive manufactories
fails to increase both in wealth and
population, ""and ftcftcb-ii i the - duly
of every citizen that feels an interest
in the welfare of his town and home,
to. patronize and encourage every en
terprise of the kind that may locate
in their midst. For instance, if you
have a plow manufactory in yonr city,
Land you need thaUartlcle, purchase it
from . your own aliop if you have a
door and sash manufactory in your
town, and you are bitildiijg and need
any of these article?, thaCis the place
you should get them, even though it
cost you a few cents more. Every
dime that is spent to encourage and
support theso enterprises among us,
is builting up our home and its busi
ness, and increasing our wealth and
population, and every dime that is
paid out for them when manufactured
elsewhere, is so' much-for that place
and against the welfare 'and prosperi
ty of our own mechanics. Therefore.
wo say to one and all, "patrouize your
Airn liimn mn n 11 fo clnripQ " fnr fillfll

western towns, and if adhered to will
do the same for Eaton. . -
We have received a- very lengthy
communication from ' a gentleman
claiming to bo a citizen of Lewisburg,
which wo decline publishing for the
reason that we have never yet permit
ted our columns to be used for the
purposs Of attacking any.religious de
nomination or sect. We believe in
allowing every person to- worship
God according to the dictates of his
own conscience, and whether a man
prays' standing or kneeling; or ouly
gives lip service whetller ho shouts,
goes nnde5vatcr-, or believes "once
saved always saved," 'don't make any
difference to us, so he is a good aud
honest citizen, we honor and respect
him. Our paper is neither religious
or anti-religious, but is published in
thc temporal Interest of the people,
besides we sec no necessity of any one
fretting their gizzards or tearing their
shirts about the danger of this Church
or that one swallowing all the rest,
together with us poor devils that don't
belong to any. If the gentleman who
signs his name to the communication
is not a myth, (for we don't know
him) and will turn his talent in an
other direction and other subjects, we
will bo pleased to accommodate him
with the uso of our columns.

Twilight Bells.
Amid the fastly failing shades t
Of twilights somber hour,
I Idly list to chiming bills
That riag in cot and tower.
One gayly calls to festive board
Where sits a winsome bride;
Who only feels that she is loved
And cares for naught beside.
Another rins in sweetest tones
The Tillage church within.
Imploring youth and age to come
And purge away their sin.
A few steps on one loudly peals
Krom bright illumined ball;
To polka, scliotllsche, Jig, quadrille,
Its notes the careless call.
But hark! another strikes my ear,
Full well I know the sound.
And quick Is seen the awful blaze
Alighting all alound.-
A pause and once apaln, I hear
A slowly swingiug bell;
Another sonl has passed away.
Its heavy, deep tones tell.

Surprise.
On the evening of Friday, April 30th,
the congregation tf the Presbyterian
Church of Eaton, made a surpriso visit
to their minister, Itcv. A. J.Keynolds.
They came en masse, every family be
ing "represented. Nor did tliev come
empty-handed, but bringing their gilts
with them, valuable both in intrinsic
worth, and also as testimonials of re-
speet and affliction. These gift? reach
ed a handsome aggregate, which will
add n nch to the material prosperity of
the minister's family. A pleasant eve
ning was spent, ami wueu me nour ior
parting came, all tclttnat tne occasion
was one of much enjoyment. To each
and all of these kind fricuds the minis
ter aud family return tl eir heai-t-
lelt thanks, aud it is our sincere uesjre
that the union between minister aud
people, commenced under such favora
ble auspices, may be rendered still more
intimate v . ' nleasant during the whole
term of its c iuuanre.
