'Wellington never waa better treated than Monday evening by the W. C T. U. in giv- - . lng the people the privilege of hearing the talented temperance evangelist, Mrs. Emma : VoOoy. ; .. ' Ine uongregational Church was very "well filled, the organist. Miss VanCleef, : played at the opening a duet with Hersey, the violinist, and the Wellington Quartet, '. the Townsend brothers, Mortimer Wad , worth and Mr. Mueller, sang two selections, the last being especially appropriate and ; pleasing. Mrs. Molloy, . modest, unassuming in dress and manner, caught the sympathy of her audience at once. Her Scripture read , lng was faultless and a sermon in itself. She. has, in an eminent degree, the quail - ties of a natural orator. Her voice is clear, ' flexible, penetrating, full, and she manage ft with superior skill. She is tender, pa. thetic,. bright, apt in illustration, logical, - and so magnetic that she captivates her hearers and Influences them at her will-1' " When an audience made op of toilers . from office and store and shop from the ' kitchen, the busy home, the school and the -- field, go there so weary that it was a ques tion with many if they could or ought togo - at all, and sit so still, so charmed and in terested that they do not take note of time, it is fair to conclude that the one who speaks to them ha something to say, .And she haa. lira. Molloy ia terribly in earnest. She has reason to preach and teach pro hibition. No one has suffered more keenly from the evils of intemperance than she. Her face and her voice is proof of her ac quaintance with grid. But with good taste she makes no allusion to herself or her own private sorrows. When a woman thus highly endowed, confirmed by her own sad experience, set apart for and consecrated to earnest work - by the sacred grief that has laid its heavy hand upon her, who has obtained her con victions not at second hand, who has . learned the intricacies of her theology by a divine instinct and received her license and her call from sources that could not be questioned or declined, who shall aay that it is not her place and her duty to be just Where she 1st . . Nothing could be more womanly than to bear such a message from God to humanity She is divinely called and judiciously ap- pointed to"preach the gospel of prohibition . to the people of Ohio just now. The local papers all over Northern Ohio, and the city papers, daily and weekly, bear test! many to the effectiveness of her work. If . she could be heard in every town and in - every city ward and in every school dis . trict, there would be no question of the fate of the Second Amendment. ,- Mrs. Molloy is least effective when she ' is sarcastic and expressing contempt, and - the hanging scene mars her address instead of adding to its force. Nothing is gained . by the contemplation of anything so horri- ble. .Her strong points, which are purely ; gentle aa2 tromanly, are sufficient for any occasion and dramatic enough. .... Woman's Christian Temperance Union. -. It is "the sober second thought" of that marvelous uprising the Crusade of 1877. Thirty States with 8,000 local auxiliaries dotting the continent, fulfill the Bible in junction, "Make a chain, for the cities are full of blood, and the land of violence." The W. C T. n.'stands as the exponent of the reign of a religion of the body, which shall corellate with Christ's wholesome, practical, yet blessedly spiritual religion of the soul. "The Kingdom of Heaven is within yon" shall have a new significance to the clear-eyed, steady-limbed Christians f the futore, from whose brain, blood and brawn the taint of alcohol and nicotine has been eliminated by ages of pure habits and noble heredity. The body is the temple of the Holy Ghost" will not then seem so mystical a statement nor one indicative of a temple so Insalubrious aa now. He that destroy eth this temple, him shall God de stroy "will be seen to evolve no element of vengeance, bat to be instead, the declara tion of such boundless love and pity for our race aa would not suffer its deteriora tion to reach the point of absolute failure and irremedial loss. The women of this land have never had anch training as our "Topical Studies" fur- Biah, in the laws by which childhood shall set out upon ita endless journey with priceless heritage of powers laid up in store by the tender, sacred forsight of those by Whom the young Immortal's being was trroked. The laws of health were never studied by so many mothers, or with such imme diate results for good on their own lives and those of their children. The deform ed waist and foot of the average fashiona ble woman never seemed so hideous and wicked, nor the cumbrous dress of the - period so unendurable, aa now, when from Studying one "poisonous habit," our minds, by the inevitable laws of thought, reach out to wider researches and more varied ' deductions than we had dreamed of at first. The economies of a simpler style living never looked so feasible aa to home makers who have learned something about the priceless value of time and money for the purpose of a Christ-like benevolence. The value of a trained intellect never had inch Significance as since "we hare learned what aa -Incalculable-, avlrantaga result from a direct style ; what valuo resides in tha power to classify facta ; what boundless resources for illustrating knd enforcing truth .come as, the sequel of a-.well-stored memory and a- cultivated imaginalioa. The puerility of sacra talk for talk's sake; tha nn worthiness pt " idle words" and vacuous, purposeless gossip; the waste of long and aimless letterwriting never look ed so egregious aa to our workers, who find each day too short for the glorious and gracious deeds waiting for them on every hand. France E. Willard, in September GRIXD UXIOX TEMPERANCE RALLY The Gospel of Un Second Amendment. CoL C. H. Wickham, of Gloversville, N. Y, will address the citizens of Wellington at the Methodist Church, on Thursday eve ning, Sept. 20, 1883. . -The subject will be the "Rum Corse and how to deal with it." Every one, young and oldj of all classes and conditions of society should hear the thrill. ing and highly interesting remarks on this important theme. The Colonel comes to us with the best of commendations from respectable parties who have had the pleas. ure of listening to him in other portions of the State. Let there be a grand rally and a rousing time, in the interest of "God, our Home and Native Land. ' , 8 .... What Hoadly did Say. The' report that Judire Hoadly said in his Zoar speech that he did not want a man to vote for him who supported the Second Amendment, is simply a Republi can lie. Hoadly is a man of too much good sense to talx in that wsy. -t-iyna uonsu tution. Perhaps the quibble our neighbor de pends upon in his defense of Hoadly 's statement on this point will be accepted by the public, and perhaps it will not.. From a verbatim report of Judge Hoadly 'a Zoar speech, published in both the Democratic and Republican papers,' a copy of which lies before us, we quote his exact language, He said.-. ' Now. this is the condition of the tem perance question as it is presented to the people of Ohio. I tell you a majority of the KepoDiican party mean to go step Dy step until they land you Republicans where the Republicans of Kansas, and Iowa, and Indiana, ana Jamev ana. most or the new England States have already landed in a declaration of absolute prohibition. If Ton vote in tavor of that. vnte air!nst me. I ask no vote of any man who believes that man 'a personal liberty ought to be controll ed by the despotic hand of a Constitution r i ' i j - , . f . r- . i luruiuuiuir ail iramc in r use 01 wis species of merchandise. . Applaase. It was the prohibitory' amendment he waa talking about." It. was those who sup port that amendment that he was address ing, and to whom he said, "If you are in favor of that, vote against me."- Now what did Judge Hoadly, who knows how to ex- press himself .in. the. English language. mean unless he meant tost what he said, "If you are in favor of that (declaration of absolute prohibition) vote against me." We put his words against any man's de nial, and - wait the verdict of the public By Hoadly's express desire, every Demo crat who votes for the Second Amendment will scratch hia name from the ticket Elyria Republican. The Age ef Steal. Those who have written, upon the pro gress of Nations hare divided the period of man's existence into the ages of stone, of iron and of bronze. Whatever the dreams of the. visionary may have pictured, or whatever foundation may exist for believ ing that man once cleft his way upward to higher plane of existence, with imple ments of stone, etc., there is no mistake about the present epoch. This is the age of steal. .The- most Indiscriminate would not be so foolish aato compare the means employed in the predatory excursions of the old Goths upon Rome with that refined sentiment and delicate apprehension with which a cashier on the. Western Reserve, wrecks a bank.: '.i.'i -" ' Scarcely a day expires but that the news ia flashed from sea to sea that some person enjoying the confidence and respect of the people of a certain community has grossly violated his honor, plunged himself and friends into ruin and brought distress upon hundreds of innocent people. There must be a cause for all this. .There must be some flaw in the construction of our civil polity or in the constitution of man and society which will be productive of such results. We are of the opinion that these defalca tions, embezzlements, or -to use a plainer word, thefts, simply- arise from, a morbid desire to get suddenly rich at the expense of every personal feeling, and without work. The vast resources of this country, the progressive spirit of the people, and the feeling of reciprocity throughout the world nave combined to present more chances for the acquiring of wealth than ever before contemplated by man. Fami lies distressingly poor have become rich in a day. and changes in their condition wrought with a celerity that is amazing. It ia the sudden acquisition of riches and the power that it gives that dazzles. Nine out of ten of the young men to-day are moving in social circles that tax their re sources to the uttermost. Receiving sala ries that would assure them a good living they are dissatisfied because they can not gratify tastes fostered under the influence of wealth. The all absorbing impulse of the young American is to get rich. The contentment that follows devotion to duty and principle is not thought of or appre ciated. Industry and frugality, the calm wealth of Nations as of individuals, is a way too loog and laborious. Gambling in stocks, speculation, conversion of others funds, these are means to an end and a sad end in many instances. Let a man look at his chances. It is computed that only ten men out of a hundred who go into legitimate business succeed. Does stock gambling present any more chances ? It is sheer fol ly to suppose that It does. There is one thing certain, public sentiment must be crystallized into S force so powerful that honesty and economy will be protected as the highest indication of manliness, and the ability to spend money not the highest at tribute of a gentleman.

In many sections of Indiana, Illinois and Iowa erowth is backward, partly from the nse of seed from tha West, which is late in maturing.

The prisoner received the ver dict coolly. The general opinion of majority of the people who attend ed the trial was that the jury would disagree or return verdict of murder in the second degree. Public sentiment can be quoted as strong in condemnation of the verdict, although there are those who argue from a strict legal standpoint that the jury was justifiable in acquitting, the Mate's evidence being made up of Liddell's testi iwrnr. snnnorted onl v bv circumstantial evidence. The general feeling, however, is one of disappointment and chagrin that the strong chain of evidence woven by the btate railed to stand. Mr. J. K. RiCHLET, who fatally shot his wife at Mendota, 111., last Monday and then fled, returned to hia home on the 6th with his throat cut from ear to ear. but no main arteries were severed.

The Treasury officials seem to be burdened with an oversupply of silver dol lars. The Government vaults and store house are all full and the work of con structing others is just about to begin.

' Like the tomato the mushroom has been a knur time in finding its way into the list of vegetables cultivated for food in this country. Like the tomato the taste for it is generally acquired. Per sons who have become accustomed to its use, however, are greatly attached to it. ' Mushrooms rank as luxuries in this country, and are paid for as such. Most of those consumed in western cities are imported from France and Italy, and come in tin cans. They are greatly inferior to those that are picked and cooked m a fresh state. They make a good dressing for steaks and chops, but are not in a suitable condi tion to be broiled, fried, or baked. Mushrooms in this country are chiefly smpioyed lor imparting and appetizing; -Savor to meats, but in most of the countries in the south of Europe they take their place among the substantial articles of common food. They form the best substitute for fresh meat, as their ultimate composition is almost identical. In Italy the trade in them is very large. A number of varieties are cultivated, some of which sell at very high prices. They are grown in natural ana artinciai caves, in beds protected by roofs, and in buildings constructed for the purpose. Many are exported, and a still larger number are converted into sauces and catsup. Raising mush rooms constitutes an important indus try in France. They are very exten sively produced in the caverns under tne city oi irans. ine temperature and moisture of these caverns are nearly uniform during the -entire year, so that a constant supply can be ob tained. Abe beds are formed of horse manure and the sweepings of streets. to which some loam is added. The business of raising and delivering mushrooms gives employment to a targe number of persons. Great attention has been given to mushroom-culture in England during the past few vears. Persons having fine country estates have erected houses for raising mushrooms, and in some cases their production has been carried on in mines that are no longer worked. A large number of works on mushroom- culture nave been published in England during the past few years. Iu this country the subject of raising mush rooms has attracted but little attention. This is probably chiefly owing to the abundance of meat and the former cheap price. The old pastures in the eastern btates have produced many mushrooms during the months of Sep tember and October, when the tempera ture of the soil and air are suited to their growth. Mushrooms are gathered during these months, carried to the cities and towns, and sold. The de mand for them, however, is greatest during the winter and early spring, be fore garden vegetables appear in the market. Persons living in the country can raise mushrooms to good advantage for their own use in cellars, barn base ments, green houses, and old hot beds and cold-frames. For supplying the city market they should be produced near where they are wanted. : In this climate buildings must be constructed above or below ground for protecting them from the changes of the atmos phere. Old buildings that are no longer useful for the purpose for which they were originally intended will an swer tne purpose very well. A cheap heating apparatus will be necessary for regulating the temperature during quite coia weather, uut nttie light is re quired in a building designed for rais ing mushrooms. A Philadelphia gardener who haa given considerable attention to the cul tivation of these fungi, says: Many persons are under the impression that mushrooms grow spontaneously. They must have arrived at this conclusion without making observations, or else have accepted the opinions of others that have not made a study of the plant. Mushrooms belong to the lower order of plant life, and reproduce them selves by going through two or more changes similar to those undergone by the caterpillar in the animal life. The seed proper can be seen by shaking an old mushroom over white paper, when a dark-colored powder will fall from the gills on the under side of the mushroom. .This will, under certain conditions, produce . cells somewhat similar to the plant called yeast, used for making bread. These cells multi ply or reproduce themselves by a divi sion of the cells. It is in this stage of life of the mushroom that we control its growth and can produce full-grown mushrooms at pleasure. At this stage gardeners call it spawn and it can be kept in this condition for years. The manner of keeping and making new spawn is to take equal parts of fresh horse and cow manure and old -soil, with no lime in it, and form them into cubes the size of common bricks. After the bricks have become partly dry in sert pieces of spawn one inch in di ameter in each one, and after they be come perfectly dry place them in a pile and cover them with fresh horse ma nure, aud leave them in this condition for two weeks. At the expiration of that time it will be found that the spawn has permeated the whole brick the same as a small quantity of yeast makes a iarger quantity. This can be used for making more spawn or for making the beds for mushrooms. To make the beds for mushrooms take equal parts of fresh horse manure and old soil from a sod field containing no lime. Mix well and place in layers of four inches and pound it with a mal let until solid. Then place other layers on and pound until a bed eight inches deep is made. Place in it a thermome ter. Over 100 degrees will be recorded, and when the thermometer recedes te 95 or 90 degrees insert pieces of the spawn the size of a hen's egg, burying them about four inches deep and one foot apart. Smooth the bed off and cover with hay or straw to retain the heat and moisture. In ten or twelve days remove the hay and cover the bed with one and a half inches of soil and then again replace the hay. In four or five weeks, if the temperature of the bed can be constantly kept between 45 and 60 degrees and the soil moist, but not wet, mushrooms will make their ap pearance. Beds can be made in any out-of-the-way place, such ' aa under sheds or in cellars. Chicago Timet. FOR SALE ! A well established Drug and Book Store, in a good location and doing a good bnsmess.
