A verdict of the jury had been reached

and imprisonment not more than one year,
or both. The jury stood ten to two for

Mrs. E. W. Hemck, of Minneapolis,
who had been spending the winter in
Florida, for the benefit of her health, died
at Jacksonville on Thursday morning.
Feb. 12. Her critical condition for sever
al weeks called for the presence and kind
ly attentions of Ml. H., who was with her
when she expired. Her remains were ex
pected at her home on Monday the 16th.
Mr. and Mrs. Herrick formerly lived in
Ashtabula, and enjoyed the esteem of the
community, and the announcement ot her
death will cause a feeling of sadness here,
as well as in Minneappolis, where the fam
ily enjoyed a large circle of friends.
A telegram was received here last
Wednesday announcing the death on the
previous day of Miss Emma M. Ensign, at
Indianapolis, Ind. Mr. A A Strong and
Miss Sarah Ensign started immediately for
Indianapolis, and ara expected back to-day
with the remains. The deceased has de
voted her time to teaching for a number of
years past, aud was so engaged at the lime
ot her death. She bad received a careful
education, and being endowed with a re
markable memory she readily absorbed and
retained the knowledge imparted to ber.
She was a pleasiug conversutioiulist and a
lady of most engaging manners. The
memory of her worth and beauty of her
character will soften the bitter blow, if it
cannot altogether heal the wound.

John W. HilI,our former fellow citizen.
now a resident of McPherson, Kansas, is
now on a visit to the scenes and friends of
his earlier days. He shows pretty good
evidence of health, and the enjoyment of
life. He speaks in rather high terms of
M'Pberon and iu growth and prosperity,
and the well-to-do euuditious of those that
went from this place and vicinity, attract
ed by the colony of "King City," of which
M'Pherson became the successful rival.
It was started on the open prairie some
seven years ago, and now numbers 2000 in
habitants, with two railroads, and all the
meant and enjoyments of compact civiliza
tion. Most of those who went from this
county now have productive farms. While
some are upon then, others are following
other occupations and letting ont their
farms. Mr. Hill has a steady berth as Jus
tice of the Peace, which with its natural
outgrowth, and his adaptation to the office,
it affords him steady, remunerative em
ployment. Some of those who went from
this region, and whose habits and modes of
life did.not promise much for the in future,
have turned out the most successful in busi
ness, and taken leading positions in respect
ability and usefulness. Transplanting, and
new relations and surroundings, lift men
out of (heir old grooves and inspires them
with self-respect, arouses their ambition,
and reforms and remodels their whole life.
Mr. L. M. Crosby is preparing to do
an extensive business this year in the man
ufacture and sale of fanning mills. In
about three weeks he will send out six wag
ons, to peddle and deliver, each wagon car
rying three mils. Heretofore he has sold
by sample, but this year the salesmen will
carry the mills with them, receiving them
at different distributing depots, where the
mills are received in pieces and put togeth
er. By shipping in this manner a large
saving in freight is made. Mr. George
Chapman, has just returned from Youngs
town where he purchased four pairs of Mis
souri mules, which, with the two pairs al
ready purchased, are to draw the wagons
through thecountry. When this procession
starts out the small boy will take it for a
Ed. Tel : I see Taxpayer is not satis
fied with my explanation of the Andcver
road. He says that if all friend Peck says
is true why was he in Jefferson with said
Turner Jan. 19, and why did he call on
the county commissioner on the same day
with said Turner?
Answer Idid not know that Mr. Turn
er was to be there on that day, bnt . he
happened to be on the same train that I
took at Leon, and as he and I happened to
have each some business of our own ' with
said commissioner, we happened to be
there both at one time. I fail to see amy?
thing strange about our being there together.
One thing certain I had nothing to' dO
in helping him in the road matter. ' He
further says when he was there Jan. t3d,
why did he say be was directed bv the
commissioners to lay out said mat, sad
let the contract for some part of the work?
Answer I deny that I said I wis direct
ed to let out any part of the worfc -1
might have said I was directed with other
viewers to lay out said road, for that was
all the authority I bad from the commis
sioners. Taxpayer must be well informed -if he
thinks the.oounty commissioners had' any
right to expend public money on land not
appropriated to road purposes, and 1 said
contemplated road was not then establish
ed, nor can it be until next March, nor
then, if taxpayer or any one else- file their
objection to it.
He further says, as to costs, why did he
not say that be and the other viewers pro
posed to pay the two land owners, between
and across whose laud the road is to run,
$35 per acre, for eight acres right of way,
or about $280 for that item only ?
Answer Like every thing he writes
about, he mis-states the amount of land by
one half, as a road 60 feet wide and a little
over one half mile in length, would not
be over about 4 acres. The parties own
ing the land over which the east half of
the road runs, did not ask any pay for
land, nor any damage. We, the viewers,
appraised the land at what we thought it
worth without asking taxpayer's advice.
As to his blarny about the tamarack
swamp I will only say there is no tama
rack timber on said tract, but there is
some hemlock, black ash, white ash, cu
cumber, chestnut, elm, maple aud beech,
and the land is firm euough so that teams
drive all through it without any trouble,
no more than they would bare in any
woods in the township, as to being wet
Now I have said all I wish to about
said road. If 'Taxpayer wants any farther
information he can ask the county com
missioners.! He claims he does not wish to
injure me nor any one else. If be does not,
I cannot see why he has made so many
mis-statements in the matter. I am will
ing to leave the' whole matter to
the public to judge. I have no interest,
nor ever had any more than any citizen of
the county in the laying out of said road,
nor will I answer any more questions
about the road until 'Taxpayer' is willing
to sign his name to what he writes.

that the severe cross examination of Mr.

The subject of railroads is amply dis

able or possible building of a road through
here connecting Conneaut Harbor with
Vernon, O., has opened up the question as
to whether our village will lose or make

making anything by it, as all are agreed
we have nothing to lose. The engineers'
report is that the survey thus far reveals
an easy grade. The first bridge building
only necessary until reaching Ashtabula
Creek at Roger's Corners in Sheffield.
The route surveyed from Conneaut, comes
up into our village traversing for a mile
or two back the farms of Charles Reed, J.
E. Gleezen, J. C. Case, Nelson's, Butt's,
Gate's, Maltby's, describing a circle in the
S. E. part of Mr. Wm. Curr's land, takes
thence down our village . across, taking in
the lands of C. D. Rockwell, and at his
residence crossing E. Main street ' By
way of Jacob Fickinger's mill it soon
reaches the land of H. H. Webster and
thence P. M. Whelpley's, on its Sheffield
bound course crossing the Sheffield road
a little south of Mr. Tourgee's farm. The
reported route leading on South is to take
in the eastern parts of Sheffield, Denmark
and Dorset, and thence diagonally to Ver

Robinson. F. '- - ago the idea S -man
spending one Sunday in New York
and the next in San Francisco, was too
preposterous to treat with any degree of
seriousness, while the thought ot reading
London happenings two hours by the clock
before they happened, was utterly ridicu
lous. Who thought, fitly years ago, th4
women would sew by machinery, that one
press could actually print 8,000 complete
newspapers in a single hour, or that two
men, a dozen miles apart, could converse
along a wire in ordinary tones of voice?
Yet all these and infinitely more have been
done in conquering the world of matter,
and we sit complacently down and ask,
"Well, what next?" We are surprised at
nothing in science or mechanics nowadays.
Medicine has not kept pace with her sis
ters, however, and while men can confess
edly conquer the whole outside world, he
has not been thought equal to assuredly
conquer even the smallest of the ills that
might distress his own body. Haven't yoa
ever thought how strange it is that man
should helplessly surrender his own body
to pain and disease, while he fights bitter
ly, tenaciously for dominion over the earth
and all else it contains? Well, right in
this line you r correspondent has been think
ing and studying, and here has be found
a greater man than Edison, for this man
whose name I withhold for the present
has discovered a certain cure for that
dreadful disease, diphtheria, and for some
other diseases. I have myself investigated
several cures it has effected, and as seeing
is believing, I cannot help saying a good
word for "Faricum," and telling the pub
lie how to obtain sure relief from that
fearful scourge, which has desolated so
many homes Here in the last few months.
Not a case has ever been lost out ot the
hundreds who have nsed "Faricum," and
it has saved in two hours scores of hopeless
cases. I have been so impressed with
these striking results, that I have been at
pains to investigate the nature of this new
remedy. It is very penetrating, and its
specific action is to relieve inflammation,
thus penetrating and breaking up the diph
therial membrane by the mere act of inha
lation. It is a cure for rheumatism, and
almost all diseases which arise from in
flammation, and these, as you know, coyer
a very wide range of human ills. Its ac
tion has been so gratifying here, that its
fame is spreading, and possibly before
long, your druggists, after enquiring into
its merits, may afford you an opportunity
to judge for yourselves whether I haye
wisely departed from my usual rule, and
borne testimony to what I conceive, in my
old age, to be a public benefactor.
REAL ESTATE BOOMING TOO.
The boom has finally struck real estate,
and there is a great activity and a steadily
increasing price. This will be good news
to manv watchers for the risinp tide. Tjast
spring I mentioned, in one ot my letters,
that $ ou.uuu had been paid lor a corner lot
on Fifth Avenue, and the mail brought a
letter Irom ew York Slate asking me to
mail an enclosed letter to the man who
paid that $50,000. Not knowing to whom
to send it I took the liberty of reading it
myself, and found it an incredulous sort
of appeal tc buy the farm of the lady, who
protested she did not want nearly as much
for a large farm as he was said to have
paid for a little piece of ground 25 by 100
feet. And now the Mercantile Library
Association has just been buying some lots
on a side street at the neat rate of $40,000
lot and my skeptical friend can mail her
letter this time direct.
By the way, the old landmark on Astor
Place, now occupied by this library, is of
fered for sale, and will probably be torn
down. This is the old Astor Place Opera
House where the famons not occurred in
1849 over the respective merits of Forrest
and Macredy. That must have been a
wonderful riot I was not in JSew xork
at the time, but I pledge yon my word, as
a newspaper man, that among all the
thousands of New York boys of that day
whom I have since known, I have never
met one who was not in the riot "looking
on" when the troops opened on the crowd,
and who was not "just in front," or "just
behind," or "just beside," some man who
' got snot. 1 he next time you come to
Gotham, just get some New Yorker of that
day engaged upon that subject, and see if
be don't tell you, before 'he is through, ,
that he, "as a boy, was right in the midst
of that Astor Place riot, &c" If you miss
