We almost know that it is un necessary to tell our friends and customers, who are at all familiar with our methods of doing business, that when we say we will do anything, we religiously do as we say we will. If there is any one thing we abominate, it is the catch-penny clap-trap of trying to obtain money or anything else, for that matter by false pre ten ce. Whatever else we may be guilty of, we belieye our friends will bear us out in this statement. But the ad. is growing to fearful length, as usual. Lt me add, that our Store is putting on ftdjhristmas leeorations XljS' Day by day. We expect to show many choice things suitable for the demands of the Happy Christmas time, so near at hand.

Humelbaugh and Miss Irene Moore were married last evening, at the home of her parents on East Bowery Street. They left for Pittsburg the same night, expecting to returu on Saturday. The marriage was to have taken place last Sunday, but owing to complications that seemed to call for parental objection, the event was in definitely postponed. However, the groom to-be squared accounts," Monday night, and the rest of the story is told as above. " Ye Old Folkes Concerte," of last Thurs day evening, given by the Methodist Choir assisted by musical talent from the other Church Choirs was in every way a success. The good people of the town, rendered com plaisant from partaking of bountiful Thanks giving dinners, filled the Church to its ca pacity. The singers under the inspiration of a well filled house, sang as if their whole beings were filled with melody. The cos tumes of ye singers were unique and becom ing, varying from the Colonial style to that of the present time. If the personal appear ance of the maidens of our forefathers days was more greatly enhanced by the costumes of those days than were their representatives on this occasion, we would yearn to turn back the course of time that we might live when such sights were common. The program of the evening was of such variety as to please all. Special mention is deserved of Mrs. L. P. Seymour's rendition of " Robin Adair," and of the solo, "Within amile of Edinboro Town." by Mrs. J. S. Allen. Miss Slaughter's violin solo elicited a hearty encore. The music of the Male Quartette was vigorously appreciated. J. B. Jewell rendered "The Holy City" in a pleasing manner. The ubiquitous boy, Wigglespring Amaziah Case, attired in a broad smile and ajeostume which transcends our powers of description, created not a little amusement during the evening. His en deavors to supply the singers with water, both internally and externally, from a huge tin dipper, were certainly effectual. In response to several requests the concert was repeated on the following evening, with a few changes in the program. The attend ance was, however, small, due to the inclem ent weather. About half-past eight o'clock Saturday night Reeves, who resides on the Wil liamson place, on Cleveland Avenue, went to officer Judson and told him he had just been ' held up" by two unknown parties who intercepted him between the Beebe and Williamson places. He said he saw the two fellows standing on etiher side of the walk and as he walked between them one grabbed him and pinioned his arms behind him while the other held a revolver to his head and told him not to resist on pain of death. They then went through his pockets, securing $10 in cash. Reeves gives a pretty good desrip tion of the pair, but for apparent reasons it was thought best by the officer not to make it public. The officer and Miles Lowrie, the lessee of the Williamson place, went to the scene of the robbery, but discovered nothing to assist them further in locating the scoun drels. Marriage Licenses.

Council held its regular December session Monday night. The Water Works report was submitted, as follows: Receipts for No vember with balance on hand at beginning of the month, $1,514.53; Disbursements $1,- idl.7l; Balance on hand $382.82. No Pay Ordinance was passed, an empty exchequer being the only apology. Paren thetically we may remark our friend Isaac Kelley 's remark, that " there was a law passed in Queen Ann's reign, that when a man had nothing to pay with he should not be obliged to pay, and that law holds good yet," even when applied to municipalities. The Coun cil was, therefore, safe in its action, and will be protected by the shield of " honorable precedent." Charles Nash was granted permission to run a portable peanut stand, the privilege to exist during option of Council only. Attention was called to the objectionable condition of the public walk on the north side of Main street, on the lands of the Pennsylvania. Co., east of their tracks. The Co. had been previously notified, however, and will undoubtedly put down a new walk in the near future. Attention was also called to a short section of cinder walk on South Diamond street, with request that a substantial walk be'eonstruct ed, but as there is a question as to whether the title to the land is in the town or a pri vate individual, the matter was necessarily postponed for future enquiry. Water is also wanted badly in that section of the town, and assurance was given that it would be fur nished as soon as possible. The resignation of eleven members of the fire department was read and accepted. The Fire committee will deliberate with the Chief and the remaining members of the force, and if there is any reasonable complaint to be made Council say they will be glad to give audience to it: as thay appreciate the TOilis-of an efficient department, and the worth of the services rendered. No action was taken with reference to pro viding funds for developing the well system of increased water supply at Crystal Lake. Samples of water from the well already drilled are now in the hands of two of the leading chemists of the State, but no report has been received from them as yet.

Again has the messenger called with the summons that sooner or later awaits every mortal sojourner. Col. O. C. Risdon, one of our most respected and useful citizens, was suddenly taken from the home and family so dear to him, and in a brief period his earth life had passed into the book of cher ished memories. Last Friday he left his store a few minutes before 1 o'clock, his customary dinner hour. After partaking of the meal he retired to an adjoining room, where he sat down in a chair for a few minutes and then assayed to recline upon a couch for a brief respite from busi ness duties. This was a daily practice with him, and a peculiarly acceptable and restful ex perience;in the activities of his busy life. Ere his head had touched the pillow, the at tention of Mrs. Risdon, who had momentari ly entered the room, was attracted by a pe culiar sound that seemed to come from her husband's throat, and quickly turning toward him she was just in time to catch him as he fell from the couch to the floor. But he was past all human aid. Even then the spirit was quilting its mortal abode, and in a few moments the form of the loved husband and father was stilled in the slumber of eter nal rest. Funeral services were held Monday, at 2 m., from the house, Rev. James A. Brown, Rector of Grace EpiscopalChurch officiating. The remains were taken to Maple drove Cemetery for ultimate interment. The bus iness places of the city were closed during the funeral, in respect for the memory of the deceased. Messrs. Geo.F. Robinson, O. P. Sperra.W. H. Beebe, G. L. Horr, C. C. Canfield. and E. R. Taylor, acted as pall bearers. Orlando C. Risdon was born in War- rensville, Ohio, May 8th, 1840 and died in Ravenna, Ohio, Friday, November 30, 1894, at his home on West Bowery street, of apoplexy and heart trouble. " He was one of a family of eight children born to T. J. and Alta Freeman Risdon. At an early age he came with the family to Shalersville, this county, where he made his home during the years of his minority. Here he learned the carpenter's and wagon- maker's trade. His education was self ac quired, obtained in part in the ordinary schools provided for rural districts, and very largely by assiduous reading and study in the privacy of his room outside of school hours and those belonging to manual pur suits. He was a great reader and thinker traits of character which followed him through life, distinguishing his efforts and crowning them with rich fruition. In the spring of 1861 he enlisted in the 19th O. V. I., for three months, and with loyal heart marched out to the defense of his country's political integrity. After the three monthsjservice he returned home, and soon afterward enlisted for three years in Co. F., 42nd O. V. I. (Garfield's Regiment) going out as first Lieutenant. - This was on Oct. 7, 1861, and he Berved with distinguished abil ity and bravery until the close of the war. He was speedily promoted to the rank of Colonel, in command of the 53rd Mississippi (colored)Infantry. At the close of the war, breveted Brigadier General, and remained South another year, performing the duties of paymaster of the Southwestern Division. He was wounded, May 19, 1863, at the siege of Vicksburg, being struck on the head by a bullet, knocking him off his - horse and ren dering him unconscious. He subsequently received a severe flesh wound in the hip from a bursting shell. On retiring from the army he returned to Shalersville, in January, 1866, in very feeble health, since'which time he has never en joyed his usual vigor, and has several times been obliged to seek recuperation at the sea shore. He had been, however, of late in unusually good health for him, and on the morning of the day of his decease remarked that he was feeling better and stronger than he had for a number of years, and seemed to be correspondingly elated over an apparent ly prospective realization of continued phys ical recuperation. He made no complaint of physical ailment or weakness. Only a few minutes preceding his death he reiter ated to Mrs. Risdon substantially what he had said in the morning. In 1867 Mr. Risdon entered into partner ship with G. L. Horr, and engaged in the manufacture of cheese, at Shalersville, nntil January, 1873, when he moved to Ravenna to take the office of Sheriff of Portage Co He served two terms in this capacity, making one of the best officials ever in the service of the county. Shortly before the expiration of his second term he purchased the interest of S. N. Leach in the firm of Parsons & Leach, grocers, subsequently buying out Mr. Parsons' interest, and after several business changes, the well known firm of Risdon fc Taylor was established. December 18, 1867, he was married, in Sha lersville, to Miss Nettie Crane, daughter of E. M. and Sylvina S. Crane, of that township. Two daughtere were born to them, Clara, now a young lady and a teacher in the Ra venna schools, and Nettie, about 12 years of age. His aged mother lives with her daugh ter, in Cleveland, who, with a brother now a resident of Omaha, are the only surviving members of his father's family. Mr. Risdon was a devoted member of the Masonic fraternity, being a member of Unity Lodge, Tyrian Chapter and the Akron Com' mandry; also a member of Ravenna Lodge and Encampment I O. O. F., and of Mcln tosh Post, No. 327 G. A. R. Col. Risdon will be greatly missed by the people of Ravenna. Aside from the high qualities attaching to his social character and estate, he was a sound, safe, practical business man, public spirited and concerned for the best interests of the town and com' munity, moral and material. . He was more over of singular simplicity of manner, plain, unostentatious, but with the quiet decision and dignity of the gentleman and man of thought. As husband, father, friend, and member of society, his domestic and social virtues adorned his life with the beauties of aSection's depths and constancy. He was frank and outspoken in his utterances, sel dom erring in his judgments of men and human affairs, which were formed from care ful observation and reflection. He was dis tinctively an optimist, having a place in his mind for every legitimate hope and an ap preciation of the significance of events. His heart was open to the wants and sorrows of those about him, but what he did was done quietly, and the full measure of his deeds is kuown only to Him whom men call Om niscience. His conduct was regulated by his conscience, andrie has left a record that win perpeiuaic me mcuiui y in jus me wurK NOTICE OF APPOINTMENT. Auignaunt of E. F.
