In Mkmokia. Hied In this village on
the ftth Inst., after a protinctcd and pain
ful illness. (Ikoriik Wii.i.akh, In the llHih
year of his age. The deceased was a na
tive of Holland Patent, (lochia Co., X. V.
His business life was begun in a general
country store, In Whitestown, In his na
tlvo Wtinty, as H clerk, In his lflth year
1828. This position he occupied until
1831, when he removed to Anhtaliula, anil
for five years filled the place of Clerk in
the post office and storo of A. C. Hubbard,
whose obituary was given in these col
umns, only last week. In April, 183'!,
the deceased became asiK:iated in business
with Richard Roberts, under the firm
name of Itolwrts ft Willard. They occu
pied the north half of the old double
brick store, so long occupied by him, built
by H.J. Reese, and which gave place to
the present, new, Willard Block. His
business was general merchandizing.
This business relation was of short dura
tion, as by the death of Mr. Roberts, after
six mouths, Mr. Willard became sole pro
prietor. It was at this time that the south
half of the building was filled with afia-k
of dry goods, and became a part of the es
taulishment. In 1844, the firm was again
changed to that of Geo. Willard & Co., by
the admission of S. B. Wells, Esq., as
partner, and general produce was added
as a component part of the business. In
18)0, another addition was made to the
firm in the person of Henry Griswold, and
the firm was again changed to that of
Willard, Wells & Co. In 1855, both,
Messrs. Wells aud Griswold, withdrew, and
Mr. Willard took entire management of
the business under the firm name of Geo.
The business now became extensive, and
was spread over various departments of en
terprise, but the first purchase of real estate
was the plat ot ground fronting Main and
Park streets upon which the old store stood,
and which n the site of the new, that de
signed to perpetuate his name. This pur
chase was in 1838.
The term of his business career in Ash
tabula, embracing the preceding five years
of his clerkship, is little less than half a
century. Beside his mercantile business
proper, the deceased had been largely en
gaged in the commerce of the lakes. He
had an ownership minor or controling
ot some five or six vessels, and one the
Julia Willard the finest of the fleet, was
built by hi in. It will be seen, therefore,
that his life lias been a busy one. Beside
this, however, he was identified with the
management of village affairs, both as
Mayor anil member of Council, as well as
in those of the township, as one of its
trustees, and no enterprise for the growth
and prosperity of the locality, was organ
ized or sustained, without his interest, in
fluence aud co-operation.
The first bank incorporated the Farm
ers' hsd the benefit of his connection and
direction from the organization. The
Central Plauk Road Co. an enterprise ot
great Importance in its day, to the thrift
ot the place, was a foster child of his from
an early day. So it was with the railroad
enterprises terminating at the lake. He
was closely identified, for years, as an of
ficer ot St. Peter's church, and his counsel
and sound discretion looked well after its
peace and welfare. In a word he has
been one ot the foremost citizens of Ashta
bula. Notwithstanding the extent and
intimacy of his business connections, his
liberality, honesty and integrity stands
free from spot or acousation, and his
memory is honored and revered.
On the 15th of September, 1833, he was
united in marriage with Julia Francis,
daughter of Err W. and Sarah Slowson
Mead, then residents ot Ashtabula. This
union left no issue, and the family leaves
no blood successor. In politics, Mr. Wil
lard might be classed as a conservative
The funeral took place at St. Peter's
Episcopal church at two o'olock yesterday
atternoon, the service being conducted by
the Rev. Dr. Moore, of Oberlin, late rector
of this church. The pall bearers were
Messrs. F. Carlisle, J. P. Robertson, J. B.
Strong, John Booth, O. H. Fitch and L.
Tyler. Out o respect for the deceased all
of tha stores and banks, and nearly all of
the business establishments on Main street
were closed from two to four o'clock, which
gave the street the appearance of a Sunday.
The Soi.dikhs' monument at Geneva
has now been completed, and Is a credita
ble work as well in design as in execution.
It is further a credit to the patriotism and
enterprise of the town. It la described by
the Expreee as follows.
It is in what is known as the "Now
Greek Style," composed of Berea Sand
Stone, and the best 1J. 8. Bronze, is used
for the statues and vrnamcnts. The di
mentions of the niouuinent are, sixteen
feet in widtli at the base, by thirty-two feet
in height. The main shaft is flanked, on
either side, by two pedestals, on which
stand two bronze stutues, both of which
are life size, being six feet and three inches
in height. Ou the east pedestal stands a
soldier, with a shouldered musket, in the
uniform of a volunteer of the late war;
while on the other siilo stands the figure
ofa sailor, leaning on his sword. Consid
erable importance Is attached to the statue
of the sailor, from the fact that it is near
ly a life sculpture of an officer ot the
school ship, Minnesota, and who has been
for forty years a bailor in the United
States navy. He is reported to bo one of
the greatest characters in the navy. The
statues were sculptured by the well-known
artist, David Richards ot New York, ami
were cast in Power's bronze foundry. The
entire cost of the monument has been
$3,000. There yet remains to be built the
enclosing wrought iron fence resting on
coping of stone. Siuce put up.
We notice the proper names that oc
cur in the local news reported from, this
region for the Cleveland dailies, and which
comes back aud ia then rehoaded for some
of the county papers, no ititelliigeiit idea
of the matters can be obtained, for the
reason that the names aro unknown. A
case in point occurred last week in the
police court, iu which the name of the de
fendant was given aa John Beldiu, a name
not to be found in the township, and a
good Yankee name at that, while the true
uame was John Be I ton that of an Irish
man living dowu below the L, S. staliou.

The Boom at Hitchcock's Shops.
Business is booming at Hitchoock &
Fisk's manufactory. Snyder & Son are un
able to fill all of their orders for shafts and
poles, and the works are frequently run
nights as well as days. Mr. Will. E.
Hitchcock is now conducting the skewer
pin works, and large nrdersare being filled.
One day last week 100 barrels of pins
were shipped to England. Messrs. Hitch
cock & Fisk will soon commence the man
ufacture of spokes, aud a mill is now be
ing prepared', which will be shipped to one
of the southern townships where the work
of getting out the stock for the spokes
will be carried on. They will then be
shipped to the shops in Ashtabula, where
the finishing up will be executed. The
machine shop is to be removed from its
present hmation in the briok shop to the
lower floor of the skewer-pin building, and
the room thus vacated will be used in the
manufacture of the spokes. The extensive
grounds of Mr. Hitchcock are about filled
with buildings and the material that goes
to make up the extensive stock of Snyder
& Son, and a new location will soon be
required for Mr. Hitchcock's residence,
which ia now nearly hedged in, and an
other new brick building for the accommo
dation of the rapidly increasing business
will be required at an early day.
A Word to Dairymen.
We already hear some talk about be
ginning to make cheese. Owners of facto
ries are rushing about, two or three of
them after the same farmer during a sin
gle day, offering inducements for him to
patrouise each his own factory. It is well
enough to decide where we will send our
milk, make up mutes, Sc., but will it be
for the best interests of the farmers
throughout this great dairy region to open
the factories during the month of March?
Will farmers never learn anything from ex
perience? To be sure, if we look at the
the present only, and shut our eyes to the
probabilities and almost certainties of the
future, the temptation is somewhat allur
ing to send cheese to market as soon as
possible. It is high in market, but what
brought it to its present Value? It was the
an in c invariable law that controls all mar
ket values demand and supply. Tho de
mand in the United States, and England
was no greater, theie was no more cheese
consumed than usual, but the supply was
smaller and consequently commanded bet
ter prices. As we all well know, cheese
was very low last season up to the first of
September. The dairy business had been
overdone. We were manufacturing more
cheese than consumers required, and un
consciously we applied the best of remedies
to correct the evil.
We made more pork, raised more and
better calves, and thus consumed millions
of pounds of milk that would not have re
turned us three cents per gallon, had it
all been converted into cheese. In addi
tion to this, the yield in England fell far
below the average, and afforded us an out
let for our surplus cheese, which would
otherwise have sold much below the prices
realized. Unless the dairymen of this
country repeat the "home consumption"
firactice of last season, and upon an en
arged scale, 1 predict a glut in the cheose
market during the coining season, worso
than that of a year ago. And we can do
nothing more damaging to our interests
as producers of cheese, than to rush this
skimmed March, and early April cheese
upon the market. It is not suitable food
for human beings, and never ought to be
made, and more especially when It is sure
to prove so damaging to our own interests,
as duriug the coining season. If our dai
rymen will lake a sensible view of this
matter, they will not permit a factory to
open its doors before the middle of April,
when cheese can be that is suita

The Seaii-Osnteiiuial Anniversary of

the notable events in the history of the

in' the exercises, and thecbiirch was crowd

E1. Tfl :- A gentleman writing from
!.cadrie to his Ashtabula friends sayn
there is no regard paid to ths SaMmth.
Nearly svery one works and attends to
business the same as on week day. A
writer in the Cleveland Itrald says there
seems to be ari awakening to the tendency
of things apparent in the disposition of
the people in ignore the obligation to re
gard the day. Mr. Moody thinks the world
is drifting into a dark age, and that blood
will flow over this beautiful land it this
desecration is not stopped. No republi
can exist where the Haobath is universally
desecrated. Ifi view of these considera
tions, is it not a dmy resting on individual
citizens which is really the source from
which reforms of this character must origi
nate? Is it not obligatory ujmhi those who
desire to maintain good society, good
morals, and a Christian colonization, to
refrain from some of the customs which
are growing upon us inadvertently, hy
which the sacreilnes of the dav is violated
aud ita conservative influence lessened; by
which not a few are partially deprived of
the needed rest from ordinary latsirs, and
the ncral influence of the day lost and de
stroyed? It may, at tint thought, seem
of little account to follow customs of this
kind winch, however, like the lining out
oT waier, may be the commencement of a
condition ol society, which most all good
people would much deprecate, and il
would require great effort to overcome,
when once inaugurated. Considering what
the world has seen under the restraining
influence of a Christian Sabbath, whai
may we not fear it wil I become when this
restraint is removed and there is no cessa
tion of the grinding cares of life.no let
up to the demands of business or pleasure
.ro tune to stop and think ot moral or re
Jl seems superfluous to particularize, as
anyone who really has interest and a con
science in the matter can readily see that
it is the small violations of the sanctity of
the day on the pari of resecta
ble people which gives license to greater
desecration on tht part of those who only
need a little license to wipe out the day
entirely so far as any renovating or saving
influence is concerned.
