Tbe 17th Annual fair of the Greenwich
Union Fair Association will be held on
tbelr grounds at Greenwich Ohio, June,
13, 13 and 14, 1880. This Is one of the
most sucee&tful June fairs in the State.
The exhibition of horses, cattle, sheep
and hogs is at fine as can be found any
where, and the display of farming im
plements and machinery is not excelled
by any county fair in tbe state. It always
pays to spend a day or two at the Green
wich Fair. For premium lint, or any In
formation desired, address the secretary,

During the storm Monday evening light
ning struck a barn belonging to Thomas
Roche, residing two miles northeast from
town and in an Instant it wks in flames,
which soon spread to the grain house near
by and within thirty minutes they were
both a moss of ruins. All of the property
was rescued from the barn but four hun
dred bushels of oatt and scyenty-five
bushels of wheat were entirely consumed
in tbe grain house. The barn was in
sured for $000 in the Ohie Farmers; grain
house for $300, and contents $300 in the
Dwelling House of Boston, making $1,000
procured through the agency of RN
Goodwin. Mr Roche it reported to be an
honest, hard working man and will suffer
quite a loss over and above Insurance, for
which tbe community deeply sympathize
with him.
In our visits to the neighboring towns
during the past two months we found that
a very friendly feeling existed between
tbe people there and the business men of
Wellington. Certain clasj of goods cannot
always be obtained in the smaller towns
as it will not warrant the merchant carry
ing them, hence the people (but out of no
disrespect for tbelr own town) are com
pelled to seek the larger places occasion
ally to trade. Upon inquiring of the sta
tion agents at Rochester, Brighton and
Speneer we ascertained that what people
did go away to trade came to Wellington
as a large number of tickets are sold daily.
These added to the number that come in
private conveyance it quite an auxiliary to
the business interests here. At La Grange
we found that the surplus trade gradually
drilled towards Elyria ss it is tbe county
seat, and being just as nearby as Welling
ton we cannot usually expect as large a
run as from tbe former named places.
