Cheese, Batter and Egg Convention. At the National Coo rent ion at Cincin nati, last week, where the batter, eggs, and cheese interests of the country were discussed, it appeared that the highest price of western extra creamery butter was 44 cents and the lowest 24 cents per pound. The batter and cheese exports this year was considerably larger than last year. The ralne of the batter, cheese, eggs and poultry marketed In the United States for 1883 amounts to more than S8,- 000,000 and the milk and. cream sold to $100,000,000 more. The "Middle Men" did the fair thing by the honest farmers and treated them to steamer trip on the Ohio for an hoar or two. The mention of suet and lard as adulterations calculated to steal the trade of the manufacturers of genuine butter made the Ohio men Indignantly deny that Miaaonri tallow found a market in this noble State. We trust that the yellow product bought for butter and able to maintain its uprightness In the hottest July weatner was never made in Ohio and that the fairest variety, which has all the I clinging qualities of lard, is In truth not at .all related to it. It was pretty clearly ' established that the olemargarine was shipped to Europe,' which makes it easier for the stomach -of the United States, though it ought to be tough on its con. . science.

The above is a cut of our new improved Gonntrr Camrjbell Printing Press, conced ed to be one of the best, if not the very best, ever invented for job and newspaper offices where the circulation does not ex ceed a few thousand. Two-thirds of all the fine color and label work of the pres ent time is printed on these machines. The comoanv has lost put up one Tor the Elyria Constitution, one for Mr. Wirtz, publisher of the Poultry Nation, Elyria, one for the Oberlin Review and one in Circlevllle, Chlllicothe, Westcrvllle and Cleveland, all within a few weeks, and the manufacturers ssy that they are selling more of this make than are sold or any other patent. These presses are the simplest duiii, give absolutely perfect register and are nnennalled for strength and durability. On it we can do every class of work equal to anv citv office from a full sheet poster to the finest commercial job. We bare ! added this and other faculties to keep pace with the growing demands of the village In this department. We shall try to make prices satisfactory, but every reasonable man will recognize the difficulty of com peting With city offices furnished: witn ranid and hi eh priced machinery and where work can be done by taking advan tage of every facility and in laree quantl ties. To meet them entirely would be like expecting a dealer In a small town whose trade would not exceed so.ouu to $10,000 a year to compete with a city wholesale house whose trade amounts to as many hundred thousands annually, or, In other words, to retail goods at wholesale prices. We intend, however, that our prices shall be so low that It would not pay to send any ordinary job out of town. And now our readers and the business men of the village, should understand that a newspaper and job printing office In town is a real advantage in building up its interests of every character and that if they would have them advanced by what power and influence it can exert they mast each contribute their fair share of patronage to make it self-sustaining; that thev hare a duty to the printer as well as he to the people; that the profits of a newspaper office of the circulation ot the EHTKRPRisa, are not so large that ye edi tor and publisher can afford to invest capi tal and give his time to Its management unless sustained by the job work nnd ad vertising of oar own citizens and that they cannot on their own account afford to send a job amounting to four or five dol lars to Cleveland because they can save twenty-hve or fifty cents or a dollar and are going down and can do It as well as not. The more extensive the business the more cheaply It can be done and large estab lishments employing thirty or forty hands can do work for a less price than one em ploying- three or four. Especially Is this the esse where their presses are run by bova and elrls under the supervision or a foremen, whose average wages amount to little,' If any more per week, than we pay for the same work per day, and where their composition Is done on the same plan at equally low rates. If a man Is only Intent on accumulating the almighty dollars In the most rapid manner possible, without regard to the symmetrical growth of his town In its social, moral. Intellec tual and business interests he will likely go to Cleveland not only for his printing but he will also ignore every other trade or home industry and everything that does not minister to his own selfishness. There Holiday Excursions. The Wheeling and Lake Erie and Cleve land Marietta Railroads will give another season of excursion rates during the holi days, the sale of tickets commencing the week proceeding Christmas and continu ing into the New Year. Those desiring to receive the benefit of this reduction can obtain full Information from any agent of the Companies between Toledo and Mari etta. Students of colleges will be accord ed the full privileges ot redaction In rates and limitation in tickets that have hereto fore been given at this season. It Will be to the Interest of all who contemplate re turning to their homes during this vaca tion, to address J. M. Hall, General Pas senger Agent of the roads, at Toledo, O, who will give very low rates to points East,8outh and West, with limit on tick ets of sufficient length to allow yon to re main as long as desired. To Those Indebted to ns. We have just put into our office at large expense, a new Improved Campbell Print ing Press, by which we are enabled to do all kinds ot job printing, more rapid and be tie work. Our delinquent subscribers and all those knowing they are Indebted to us, whether for large or small amounts, will greatly oblige us by calling .and set tling their accounts. Wages, material, merchandise everything in which we have accomodated them, costs us money, and we are obliged to be prompt in meeting all those obligations with cash. It needs no argument to abow the justice of our re quest. There is a constant effort on the part of that grim monster "Disease" to become master of mortal man. Only a careful ob servance of natural laws can render his ef forts unavailing. ' Yet too often injudic ious excesses, sudden changes, too great exposure, improper food or other abuses of nature open the gateway and Disease gains a victory. Sometimes its mastery U so complete that Nature of herself can nevar anect a dislod gement. In such instances reinforce nature with a judicious use of Brown's Iron Bitters and we guar, an tee, in a short time, all disease will vanished. Ladles' Basaar. Booms, east aide Public Bquare.

Wjl are firms in Cleveland that hire pants made from six to twenty-five cents per pair and men's shirts for as little, but it cannot be done so in Wellington and the man who would Insist on such prices or go to Cleveland for his work would, we hope, get little sympathy from our people. We state the truth and nothing more when we say that every dollar that we get for work in advance of Cleveland prices costs us absolutely two dollars more than it does them. Nor can it be done here with the facilities the business of a town of this size will warrant us In providing, more cheaply. Business men recognize the advantage and necessity of a newspaper and job of fice In a town like this, and the question for them to settle is, do they want us in order to meet Cleveland prices, to do work at less than would afford a reasonable margin of profit on capital and labor in vested and if we will not, will they take their work to outside offices and leave us to pick up a precarious living as best we can. We have several Improvements in view which would be much to the credit and advantage of the town and our read ers, but they involve a greater outlay than present subscription and patronage will warrant. If our friends could see "that their full obligation to support a home paper is not discharged by subscribing for it ; that they owe it also job work and ad vertising patronage, and that the sacrifices necessary to sustain it are not all on their part we sh3uld be nearer to a solution of the question, "how shall we manage to keep oar home paper fully abreast the necessities of the times ?" We still have to meet the objection t the price of our paper is too hlshrtnat for one-third less they can get sfclty weekly, containing double or quadruple the read ing matter and of better quality, but It is the same old question of retailing goods at wholesale prices, of furnishing a paper for the same price with a circulation of one thousand that is charged for one of 50,000 to 100,000. City offices publish a daily, which ef itself affords large profits and the weekly is made up of matter pre pared for the daily and already in type, and Involves no expense for editorial work, composition sod proof-reading, but is aim ply a question of paper and press work, The two are on an entirely different basis and cannot be produced for the same prices. Again, they fill entirely different places In the wants of the public and one cannot be made to take that of the other. Your city paper, It is true, will give you the general, news, political or otherwise, and if anything happens in your town of suf ficient Importance to interest the general public, such as theft, robbery, murder, fire, railroad collision or bankruptcy, you will get that too, but how will It be with the thousand and one matters of less import but which vitally concern the progress and welfare of your town, and of the Individ uals too, which your paper Is expected to chsmpion t How with regard to an nonncements of public meetings, political. social, religious? How about society no tices and events, marriages, deaths, obitu aries, resolutions, cards of thanks and nameless other things which a country paper la expected to publish free, but if obliged to insert in a city paper would cost from ten to twenty -five cents a line and then would not reach one in ten of home readers.
