Mayor'a Message. -To the honorable council ot the Incorpo rated Tillage of Wellington, 0.: Gentlemen : The revised statutes of Ohio make it Incumbent upon the mayor to annually make such reports and recom mendations to you as In his Judgment are for the best Interests of the village and general welfare of the community. I will not, however, trespass long upon your time on this occasion, but will briefly offer a few suggestions tor your consider ation. The finances of the village should be carefully looked after and true economy practiced In the expenditure ot public money. Your predecessors have left these matters in excellent condition enough cash on band In each fund to meet all nec essary expenses until we shall receive our next levy. The bonded debt of $10,000 for street paving, being the only indebted ness Incurred by them, and' having ten years to run, Is being paid in advance of maturity witb so small a levy as to be scarcely noticeable to our largest tax-pay er. The practice of economy should not, how ever, be carried to the extent of neglecting necessary or needed public Improvements whenever there is a demand for them. ' I mentioned in my last report that theie seemed to bo some demand for each of three things, viz., some system to provide better supply of water, better drainage, and better street lighting. Nearly all vil lages the size of ours either have these Improvements or are providing for them at an early day, and If we would sustain our past reputation for thrift and enter prise, as well as look to our own good, we must move in thst direction. By this 1 do not mean that we should attempt too much at once, but each year should note some step in the march of progress in Im provements of this character. I would think it advisable to try to secure an ex pression from our citizens with regard to which, If any, of these Improvements are desired, and be governed largely by the will of the people, whose servants we are. 1 wish to again coll your attention to our sidewalks and suggest that more prompt action be taken In regard to the construction and repair of the same. It is a continual source of complaint Poor walks sre dangerous and annoying and should be promptly reported, and if not repaired In the specified time should re ceive the immediate attention of the com mlssioner, in accordance with the ordi nances of the village. In view of the fact that our country is threatened with a visitation of the cholera this year I would recommend that unusual care be taken in the cleaning ot our streets, alleys and ditches, and in this wsy greatly assist the board of health in their labor in that direction. In conclusion, permit me to suggest that your duties are not wholly of an hon. orary character, as some of you are already aware. On the contrary yon have many responsibilities and will have many unpleasant and onerous duties to perform which will require coursge and decision I trust each one of you will so perform these duties as to meet with publio ap proval and reflect credit upon yourselves. Respectfully yours, Georob L. Couch, Mayor. Assessors of the County.

Oa 1U war to the Great Exposition, to be Sean at the Wellington Depot April XT, I KB. 10 p.m. The following correspondence explains itself. We trust the school children will be at the depot in a body, as many of them may never have another opportunity to see the old bell that gave notice to the citizens of Philadelphia that the declara tion of independance had been signed and that a nation had been born.
