WINTER EVEMNCS —The long winter even
ings are upon us and no better use can be
made of them than to spend them in laying
up stores of useful knowledge. A good book
is a treasure and its study a delight. In it
are pleasure and profit found at the same lime.
The young can make no batter investment of
their spare money than in buying good books
nor can they better improve their leisure
hours than in reading them. The INQI IRER
Book Store is the place to buy good books
cheap. Call and examine them.
CESTERVH.I E. among the improvements
in Centerville, we take pleasure in noticing
the establishment of our friend D. li. An
derson. He has one of the finest a'or,- rooms
in tbe County, is a clever accommodating
gentleman aud is doing a very good business.
He is selling goods at very low figures and
has just received a large stock of all kinds
of school books from the INQUIRER BookStore
which he will sell very cheap for cash, Give
him a call before going elsewhere.
"DEMOREST'S MONTHHT."— The Christmas
number of this admirably conducted magazine
is oot. and is really a gem. Tbe fashions are
profue, the contents, literary and artistic, of
the highest class. There is a beautiful illus
trated Household department, music, and
each worth the cost of tbe magazine. We do
not see how any lady can afford to be without
it. It has. moreover, none of the frivolity of
the ordinary class of fashion magazines, but
much of the high tone, and sensible, practical
character of the best European Monthlies.

IT is not right for parents to send their
coiMreu to school when suffering from any
disease that may be communicated to others.
A e are informed that a number of persons
are sending their children to the union school
while suffering from wboopir.g cough. It is
certainly uutortuuate that children should
have the whooping cough and be kept out of
school, but it la still no excuse for sending them
and communicating the disease to tho whole
school. We hope the offending parties will
give the matter due consideration and see the
impropriety of their conduct, as well as tbe
wrong they do their neighbors by sending
their children to school while suffering from
such diseases as are in any way contagious.

WASTED— Bin;oATK.HABou.~It is a rare
thing now m days ib find a man master of his
trade, api •rentier- am uukrewo. A boy
vworks at a trade a monili and sets up a J out*
-net-man, and such journeymen! One call*
himself a carpenter and is scarce !y competent
to cut decent cord wood. Another calls him
self a mason wbn is barely fit to break stone
on a turn pike and other railings are mastered
in the same degree. A cabinet maker bungs
you home a piece of furniture, which on a
close examination ran be veCtV through at
every joint. Truly there > a serious defect
in our labor system that is felt tar and wide.
The following remark', from the Fhtlailelpltia
Evening Star will be found to apply to our
country villages as will as to the Urge cities;
it says: One of the great wants of our coun
try is educated labor, Ibe intelligent miitd
guiding the skilful baud. Tho field for this
is vast a> d still growing, and as cur papula
tion becomes larger, and the varied industries
in which we are engaged, find increasing em
ployment, this demand will become more and
more felt. We now are drawing from Europe
some of her best mechanics, who ttrfing with
their practical knowledge, minds thoroughly
trained in theory also, and wlro as)piy the re
sult of that thought to useful purposes. Such
men should find no lack of employment with
us at high wages, and we hope their number
will increase. Out own mechanics have noth
ing to fear from fhem, but by contact with
them will have their ideas enlarged, and their
knowledge increased. Many of these for
eigners are graduates of Schools of Applied
Science, and have sought this field of. labor
on account of its promising well for future
efforts, and also for poibipal fieedoiu, and
they should he errcOuTßgtd fo Settle here sutd
become citiaens with ua. And we too should
have thews metLantpai schco's, where our
youth, who give evidence of intelligence, ar.d
who desire CD becotne skilled mechanics, Could
receive Tnstructidfi to fit the'm for their trade. 1
By so doing we would. •> a tew tears, have
made such improvements 1 in aff our different
manufacture*, th.it, should the opponents of
a protective tariff ever succeed in their aims, ■
our skill would itself protect u. ft would be
better for thousands of the young men (XT bur '
country, who are spending too best years of
their lives as clerk", of in tio legitimate busi
ness at all, to apply themselves to acquiring a
!r d*. which would almost always give them
a gbr-d living: and stiH better would it he for
them to make that trail.- a study, and by
bringing the' powers of their mind to bear
upfin it in all their strength, to the
calling and thus benefit u. tost •> *a ami ttie
IHIKOVB RAN liv*.\ixus.~Wfnb the return
of lengthened and pleasant cool evening =,
comes the query to all, how shall we best
improve them? There are a thousand plea
sant ways of spending a fall or winter even
ing within the reach of those who have com
mand of their own time: and profiiineirt among
these is indulgence in literary pursuits. How
few, comparatively 2 of the young people of
the pre*entday appreciate an they should th
inestimable privileges ihev enjoy? Surround
ed, as are *bi young. with all the opportuni
ties netfessary for the cultivation of a,literary
taste, not one in a thousand appears to im
prove these golden chances. Occasionally,
it is true, we mget wiifa a young man, or a
young woman, who firmly grasps the idea
that "knowledge is power," but these are
the exceptions, not the rule. Thousands of
young men, who have comfort aide homes —
whose Threats are willing to supply them
with books ami pßpers—-Mr,stead of availing
themselves nfthese 'advantages, spend their
long fall and winjer evening,-, in idle lonngings
around corners, or in company with frivolous
associates, malt, or female. Thus, winter
after winter passes away, each one bringing
them nearer to the Sg'e of manhood, but not
fitting them for the proper discharge; of the
duties that a full manhood require*. They
enter upon the bo-y stage of life with aone
of those saft-gua: ds which a cultivated intel
lect throws around its possessor.. They start
life laboring tinder a thousand disadvantages.
ar.d confronted by innumerable obstacles
which disappear like shadowe* before the
well informed mind. The fact hat they do
not contemplate adopting a professional ca
reer does not in any degree relieve them from
the charge ot being untrue to tho;u*iTves,
their friends, at d their country, -while thus
frittering away the' most precious* fii-iir's of
their lives in idle indifference, and too fre
quently in the company of those associates
with whom, is contamination. How many of
them wili resolve ta tjura over a new leaf, ai d
improve the long evening*?— Exchange.
CONVICTED. Henry Bear a resident of St.
Clair Town?hip, was last we'-k convicted of
fraudulent voting and sentenced to three
months imprisonment in the county jail and a
tine of fifty dollars. His offence was voting
twice, once in Napier township and afterward
in St. Clair. He -eems to have been intoxi
cated and made the* tool of certain over zeal
ous copperhead'. but it dMn't save Seymour
nor Kitnmell either. We hope when the
real ,offen-Jers and responsible parties in the
case are fbnnd that they may get the full
benefit of the law. There is no greater
danger threatening our free institutions today
than the frauds perpetrated at the ballot box,
aad wherever the instigators Of stich crimes
are found they should be much r iOre severe'y
punished than their ignorant dopes. Quite a
number of fraudulent copperhead voles were
polled at the hst election and we hope every
one of the offenders may be made to feel the
rigors of the law.

THE NEW FOOR HOUSE JK A MCDDLE —
The County Commissioners, the Grand Jury
and the indues of our Court are ail at logger
'heads about th- proposed new Fduf House,
1 he Commissioners it seems have determin
ed to build the new Hobs*, below the Mill
r.ioe ou tb opposite side of the turnpike
fYom the mill and immediately behind the
present Poor H.,use garden. In this location
it is qy'rte likely that jf it does get out of tho
present muddle it is destined for all future
time to stick in the mud. This is one very
serious objection to building in the spot se
lected. Another objection is that the plan
on which they propose to build was designed
tor an elevated site instead of alow flat one,
and the third and Ivy no means the least i
that in case it is found advisable to divide the
present property and 1! a portion including
the mill, the proximity of the Aims house
would seriously impair the value of the mill
property. None of these objections eat-, be
urged against the site selected by the Archi
tect. It is understood thai the Judges favor
the original site beyond Shover'e Run on the
hillside, whilt the last Grand Jury favored
the purchase of the property of William
Cheuowith at thoprice of $30,000. Thus
the matter stands at present. Tho work
on the foundation of the \ reposed buil
ding we beiieve has been stopped lor the
winter. Wottld it n.t)t have been better to
adopt our proposition to appoint a mixed
Committee of good men from various parts Of
the county, who should have the whole
charge of the building including plan, site
and everything else Connected with the erec
tion of the building. However the mattrt
may be finally setth- I we hope the building
may be got out of the mud. It would be a
lasting disgrace to the County to expend
s*o,ooo or $40,400 to erect a building below
the mill race where the grounds could never
be made or kept dry.
