Besidea those drawn, the books of reference are much eoasalted, especially by the pa- plls of the publle schools. ' It la not necessary to add that new books are much needed that could be easily oh- talned If aU the stockholders would pay the last asseatsaeat.. . Prof. Langdon gave an exhibition Monday .Tuesday and Wednesdsy even incs, consisting of sleight of hand and other performances, with nnpronounc- able names. They were said by those who attended to be very amusing. A case lately tried In FJvrla in which the ownership of a few geese, valued at five dollars, was Involved ha juat been decided, the jury giving judgment for seventy-lire cents. The costs before the justice wers $7, clerk's fees $8, sheriff's $3, witness fees $42.45, jury gtf, all to be paid by the party beat en. The attorney's fees are estimated at 75 and besides the . expense to the county, for jury six dsys ia $133. snd the judge's salary, fires, etc. are not given This furnishes a fine example of the economy of law and we hope the par ties are thoroughly satisfied. A. M. Fitch has got well settled in his new building, South side of Liberty Street, and nearly opposite his former place of business. His store room is 75 x S3 feet, the front windows are sin gle sheets of plate glass, the wood work is done in ash, oil finish, and ad mirably arranged for the display of the various classes of goods he han dies. Heat U furnished by a hard coal base-burner in severe, and by a grate situated near his office In mild weather. It would seem thst scarcely anything could be added to secure greater con venience. The second story furnishes a work-shop in the rear and a large front room suitable for an office, which be offers for rent. Mr. Fitch began in Wellington la 1868, in what was the old Bank Building, and has gone on steadily Increasing and enlarg ing his business until be now has one ot the best stocks of ready-made clothing and furnishing goods iu Lorain Co., and we are assured his prices are as low as is consistent with a sate and le gitimate trade. We are glad to note ev idences of thrift and prosperity in any of our business men and we assure Mr. Fitch that we would be as glad to see him make a dollar as any other man in the world except well except our selves. We msy say In this connection that Mr. Fitch owes much of hit success to judicious advertising of which he has been by far one of the most liberal patrons in Wellington, and as evidence of his faith he proposes to double his investment the coming season lu that most useful resource. .2 j Theatrical. . if .. -A large and appreciative audience greeted the John Elisler troupe at Bln Inger's Hall last Friday evening, on which occasion ' Bip Van Winkle, the vagabond ot the Catskill, was happily produced and fully appreciated by all present, and, with the exception of one or two slight mechanical defects of scenery, weut oft smoothly. The characters were well cast, every one being well up In his or her part, the leading ones being "Rip," by John Elisler, and "Gntchen," his shrewish wife, by ilifs Florence Baldwin, both ch traders being well sustained." . Those who have seen the original "Old Rip" (Joe Jefferson) are at a Iras to criticise Mr. Elisler, feeling the task would be a difficult one. We hope Mr, Elisler will visit us again; indeed he has promised so much, when he will be greeted by a full house, making the oc casion one of mutual pleasure and profit. The music for the eveuing, under the direction, of 11. F. Curtis, Esq.., was well "rendered, adding much .to .the pleasure of the entertainment and re lieving the tedium. of waiting between the acts. ,rr.';7yOS2 .A .T.-P.

Prominent among the reliable business firms of Wellington is the Meat Market of C. 8. Morehouse. Mr. M. commenced business here six years ago. since which time be has. by keeping his market sup- puea wiu unotce Meats ana aeuog fairly with his customers, built up thriving trade. The patrons of this es tablishment are always sure of finding just whst they want when they call here. r'resh and Bait Meats of all kinds are kept constantly on hand, together with Sausage and Home-Cured Hams, Lard etc. Mr. Morehouse supplies the tables of the American House with these meats and has elicited words of praise from its guests for the fine cuts which he has placed before them. The Market is - al ways neat and clean, and the proprietor and his clerk are accommodating to all, Wellington has in this Market a place of business which Is worthy of the confi dence of her people. A. D. BKASBKKR. This gentleman is agent for the cele brated "Singer" Sewing Machines, and his office is located in Mr. Frank 8e rage's shoe store on liberty at. J he singer is familiar in every town and village In the United States, it being one or the oldest standard Sewing Machines in the market. Its adaptability to all kinds of work makes it a favorite in the house hold, and for manufacturing purposes. It is one of the Simplest, Strongest and Best Adjusted Machines made. The parte are made by the best machinery in the world, and are thoroughly finished and in consequence of this perfect har mony of parts it wears evenly thus mak ing it famous lor outwearing other ma chines. For Durability, Large Range of Work and Ease of Operation, it has no superior. Its recent improvements have greatly enhanced its value to the public. and make it one oi the ugntest-Kunning and Perfect Machines In the market. We saw some fine specimens of Fancy Work executed on it. among which was some Scolloped Pleating, unknown to the trade excepting the Davis machine. This work is finished with a nicety sur prising to behold. As an evidence of what the people think of it in this locali ty, we will state tout since last August (the time Mr. Bradbser began selling the S-nger heie) he haa sold Thirty-three Machines, without the aid oi sub-agents, sad his sales are rapidly increasing. It is used by the tailors, and dressmakers generally of Wellington, and they speak ot Us merits in nign praise. To those who wish a machine thst will do every- thing its agent claim for it we recom mend the Singer. We have known Mr. Brad beer for many years, and with oth ers can recommend him as an hon orable gentleman, and reliable in his dealings, and as wcrlhy of the con fidence and esteem of the people of the place, as he is of those of other cities where he resided prior to his advent here. He Informs us that be is prepared to oner the most favorable terms to all who wish a first-class Sewing Machine. Call and see It and be convinced of its many good qualities. COMMUNICATIONS.

Last Saturday there was a special meeting of the Board of Education and the occasion proved to be of such dra matic interest as to be worthy of record. The meeting was called at the instance of the local directors of District No. 5, to settle a difficulty between B. P. Rem ington teacher, and one Cowey a pupil. It seems that the former, in accordance with the practice of all first-class teach ers everywhere, bad introduced the lan guage lesson into his school, requiring that each pupu anouia at stated intervals till out an outline prepared ior mm oy the teacher. . With this Cowey would not comply and upheld by his parents, he insolently flaunted his refusal before the school, and was suspended. A meeting of the Board was called to decide wheth er the teacher should be sustained. One of the directors being urged by a person al animosity to uphold the pupil, appear- ed.backed by one or two other dissatisfied laaiviauais, sua attempted to buiidose the Board into a decision against the teacner. yuite a number of pedagogues were present, and the meanness of the attempt, the insolence, the unjust slurs upon the ability and character of Rent- ington, called forth from them such a storm of honest and plainly spoken sen timent that the meeting at once assumed a dramatic aspect. The affair had, it seems, inaugurated a general neighbor hood quarrel, and freedom of speech having been established, a number of individuals sprang to their feet and had their flings at each other. After numer ous and vain attempts to arrive at some thing definite, the Board finally came to the unanimous decision that the teacher should be sustained. We are happy to record this eminently right and prop ;r decision. But we do not think that the grounds qpon which the gentlemen of the Board based their decision were the ones most fitting to be considered in the present case. They decided in accordance with a resolution passed In 1870, enforcing rhetorical ex ercises in the schools. If they had come out openly and forcibly and sustained the teacher because be was the teacher; ne- caose, having been engaged to teach the school it was his province and duty to pursue such methods as his experience and education enabled him to decide up on, and because no one knows so well as he the needs of the pupil, they would have established a noble precedent and crowned themselves with glorv.

Mr. Chauncey Saddler made a sale of his personal property on Saturday, Feb. 1st. we understand be intends moving to Gibsonburg to act the part of" mine host." Mr. Joseph Smith is renovating the house which he bought of Mr. Wilson, with the intention of removing to town this spring. We shall be glad to welcome Mr. and Mrs. Smith to our little village. We were pleased to hear from Mr. Chaffee. Perhaps he would be pleased, to know how the Sullivan Grange pros pers so we will say that there arc a few who still "hold the fort," but we think they are sadly in need of reinforcements. Airs. S.

Enterprise. The question of fire protection for our Tillage is one in which every taxpayer is Interested and as our city fathers are discussing the matter with a view to supplying this long-felt want, would it not be well to aid them with timely suggestion. That this com munity has been extremely fortunate in its immunity from destructive conflagra tions is not due to the foresight of those in authority. A few ladders hidden away no one knows where, and half a dozen suction pumps for the children lo play with, tell the story. Is this policy a wise one? Ia it such forethonght and pru dence as wo would exercise In our private matters? I assume not. The fin-t thing to be considered is our water supply. With our present facil ities it win oe oi no avail to purchase either steam or hand apparatus, as either would exhaust the supply in a very few minutes. Suppose a fire should originate In "Bunco's Block." Our steamer is promptly on hand and takea position at the reservoir on North Main St.. (one of the best in town), ten minutes of pump ing exhausts the supply, and the fire ex tends to neighboring blocks and all are consumed. Bunco (without insurance) is ruined and our town in mourning for his departed greatness. What we need Is about six large cisterns properly distrib uted through the town and of sufficient capacity for any emergency. With this want supplied we are ready to talk about a fire engine. The proposition to purchase a second- band steam fire engine does not seem to me practicable. The fact that we can get one cheap does not fulfill all the re quirements. Toodles bought a coffin and a door-plate for a better reason. In the first place it is too heavy and cumber some and with our roads in their usual condition the machine would stick fast and four horses could not move it at some seasons of 'the year. What we need is one or more light mi- chines that could be run on the sidewalk in cise of necessity and that work by hand. Our young men would take pride in forming an organization to "run with the machine" and in a short time would become efficient. There are some ma chines made that work on a princip.e sim ilar to the Babcock Extinguisher and it might be well to look them up. Will our Council "brace up", "pull down their vesta" and look into these matters? They will thereby hsnd their names down to posterity as 'Fathers" Indeed. Erabttjs.

Houghton, aged fourteen years and ten months. Five of her earliest years were all that Flora knew of a free and healthy childhood. After that physical enjoyment was hindered and harassed by grave complications that gave to her family well-founded apprehen sion of the brevity of her life, which they felt could only be prolonged by constant and intelligent care. Her frailty Invested her with a peculiar tenderness, and the loving solicitude that al ways surrounded her while it shielded her from most of the responsibilities and annoy ances that vex and give harsher outlines to other lives, re-acted upon her character mak ing her lovable and companionable beyond her years. The very few who knew her well loved her most. Her gravity was not of that kind that lacked cheerfulness, and her repose of manner sod quiet demeanor were the re flection of a temperament as free from un rest and Irritability as It seems possible for human-nature to be. Enforced deprivation from the active em ployments and amusements of robust chil dren gave her unusual leisure for reading, and especially for the enjoyment of the so ciety of those older than herself, yet she re tained a hearty love for and enthusiastic in terest in childish pleasures and pursuits. Life had seemed to bring no bitterness to her and she had no fault to And with It. Con- Uoued suffering wrung from her patient soul I no word of complaint. Greatly Interested and ambitions in study, and cherishing al ways a loyal love and respect for her teach. era and classmates, it was very hard again and sgaln to give up regular attendance at 8unday and day school. The beginning of her last illness took her from school thirteen weeks before her death; but rallying a little she made repeated efforts to go on with the lessons that soon had to be given up altogether. With an lnvalld'sjlonging for Spring, a few days ago she expressed a wish to escape the dreariness of the Interval between then and Aprll.when vernal Selds and opening; buds,and her birthday would be here. . Dear child! an eternal Spring-time is al ready hers, and there Is no winter of waiting where she has gi.ne to dwell. A devoted and affectionate daughter "how she leaned In love to us I" Very gently did stricken hearts strive to untwine her childish hands from father and mother, the earthly supports to which nature clung, and help her to re sign herself Into the Everlasting arms. From the time she could lisp the name ot Jesus there was no period when she did not pray: bnt reserved snd undemonstrative In her emotional nature, whatever conflict was going on in her mind as the battled with the steady march of disease aad shaped her thoughts to the contemplation of the ordeal awaiting her, ahe gave no sign of distress or anxiety or Impatience. ' Aware of every step ot death's' near ap proach, and frequently questioned as to her hope and confidence in the Saviour, she as sured us that she could safely trust, though it would be easier for her if we were all going together. Ia extreme physical suffer ing but with a composure unsurpassed, her mind perfectly clear, and only the two beside her whose care and sympathy was her chief earthly solace: Her soul put off Its rati of Sean.

"Could we but win you for an hour From off yon starry shore, The hunger of our souls were filled; For Death hath told yoa more Than the melancholy world hath known, Things doeper than all lore Ton could teach us. "In vain, in vain, in vain I Tou will never come asraln. There droops upon the dreary hills A mournful f ring of rain.
