GOODRICH. o o o p O H AS never occurred to you that the ready-to-wear clothing business is better represented and more extensively carried on in "Wellington than in any other town of the same population in northern Ohio. Well, this is a fact. There are three first-class clothing stores in our little city, and cus tomers can depend on suiting themselves perfectly at prices that are satisfactory. GOODRICH is really the leader. He carries the best as sortment of goods, and, while he don't give them away, his prices arc always found to be the lowest. O o o P- -i o E. E. GOODRICH.

Editor Enterprise. It hat been my In- tention for a long time to write a letter to the Enterprise and In this way to redeem promisee made to write to numerous friends In Wellington and Huntington. Bach - promises are made in good faith at the hour ot parting but alas how often are they lef t unredeemed to haunt the mind with a vague sense of dis comfort. This feeble effort is put forth to redeem all such pledges and to nolle complaints of Injured Mends. This U to be a rambling sort of missive from a poor exile In Dixie land begging you to make all the allowance yon can. I hereby affirm that It is not a literary effort, and bid defiance to any captious critics In Wellington, who never utter a sentence without first seeing if it will parse. It tbey bad been In Ibe Panhandle aa long as I have and heard Judges and other great (?) men say "Me an' him Is going over lo the cotehonse" and like ex pressions, they would realize that the roy al road to distinction does not always.He through conjugations snd declensions. I mlgbt write about Amarillo, the queen of the plains and the great domains of the cattle barons around It. But I believe that a description of a cosy little ranch down on the Bed river will be of more interest to you because it belongs to a family well-known in Well ington aud vicinity, the Finches, of Burl- inggame, Kan. I gladly accepted an invitation from John Finch, who has charge of the "bar 06" ranch to visit his family at . the ranch headquarters. Newlin is the nearest railroad town on the Fort Worth & Denyer, and is ninety miles from Amarillo and 1700 feet lower in altitude. It is not on the plains at all, but In the valley of the Bed river, Just where H leaves the Panhandle. The ranch headauarUrs are seven miles from Newllnt v- - The road leading thither is not much like Ohio roads. Six gates have to be opened and numerous deep defiles passed through before one comes to the road leading between rocky cliffs on one side and the river bed on the other to the bouse, perched cosily at the base ef blU. This hill Is softly rounded In outline, and Is covered with mesouite bushes. Do not imagine any connection between moS' oultosaod the beautilul, feathery mes ouite. I can honestly affirm that I have neither seen nor felt "ary akeeter" here. This ranch la small as compared with the "T, anchor," "L X," "shoe bar." or anyofthow great grazing tracts, which measure (50 or 00 miles in length. It contains sixteen sections, or tquare miles, and consists of canyons, rocky bluffs and aunny upland pastures. Parts of the herd may be seen in these canyons away from the heat of the blaz ing noonday sun, aud with their wnite faces and smooth red aides these pure blooded Hereford do not detract from the beauty of the scene. The first evening at the ranch we set out doors to enjoy the cool air and the moonlight. Whatever grudges you may have against Texas you have to admit that the nights are perfect. Tbey are never close and sultry: gentle little breezes wander past and give yon pleasant greet ing. On this particular evening the moon was full and shoae with resplendent grandeur on bluffs and river bed and where the moonbeams fell on the water the effect was indescribable, unless you fall back on the much-used adjectives sllyery, shimmering, fairylike. Scenes like this reconcile me to Texas and weave a new romance about ranch life. The Bed river la the upper part of that river which gives It name to Geo. Bank campaign in Texas. Here Its bed is mile wide and is red enough to Justify its name. It is very low now and only has current after a heavy rain. My prluclpal psstlme here is riding sod driving. Croppy, my particular favorite tor the saddle, is a sorrel pony, who Is knowing as Texas ponlea are reputed to be. He once had the fortune to be stolen by an Indian, who slit his ears, and thus, when he regained a civilized master he was bound to be called "Croppy." He will go all day on an easy little rack or oanU-r or run away with you according as you give htm the chance. The instinct to ro round up every cow be conies In contact with la aa strong as lire with Croppy. The work on the ranch at this time of year ocnblstB In watching the windmills to see tliat they art pu in plug, In kecpit.g nn eye on the herd and warding off the I hungry wolvne and watcblnir the fences i and gates. In the spring the round-ups and branding make much busier times. I must tell you about one of our eques trian expeditions. We rode all the atter noon and went through several canyons. One of these was so narrow and winding that as we rode through it tingle tile we felt quite like the "Apache.!!" and his band threading lonely deflUm prepara tion for some attack. Our objective point was Nelson's moun tain, or the bog's back. Thla mound rises 200 feet above the surrounding coun try and is precipitous on all sides bul one. On (his side we made the ascent and It was steep enough for me. I depended wholly on Croppy's sagacity and let him choose bis own path. A rich reward awaited u, for frm (be summit an en chanting view was disclosed lo our eyes. Below was rolling ground, gorges, red cliffs and plains, all forming a vast pano rama in which the broad lied and its yel low sand bauks formed the most striking feature. A cluster of houses in the dlstauce pro claimed Newlin. Something serpentine trailing along over the plain with a wreathing column of smoke it its head whispered of the connection of these soli tudes with the outside world. Black, rolling thunder clouds hung over the bills to the south while at the utmost line ol vision the break which marks the rise of the Llano Estacndo, or groat plain showed Its low dark front. One more Incident ol my stay and then nra ilooe. One evening when the boys bad henn riding nil day I proposed to make griddle cakes for the delectation of the crowd. This was n-eived with acclamation. I marched proudly to the kitchen, took charge of the "chuck outfit" and "rustled" up some Vol cakes, which the boys said "were out of sight" 1 baked a goodly Dila of cakes and exDected a cessation of hostilities I persevere through eighteen relays and still demand is ahead ot supply. I send in the nineteenth and think it is the last Twenty-one. twenly-two. The dough gives out I mix a little more. Twenty-three, twenty-four, twenty-five I Great Cassar's ghost I Is It a repititlon of the man in the German fairy tale who could drink up the whole sea? The demand suddenly ceases. I have had an object lesson in the potent effect of this climate and tree oul-door life on the appetite of boya. I do not care bow much anyone eats however, if he la as good natured and lively u these boys and transmutes grid die cakes and bacon into the willing ac tivity of a live rustler. Well, I did not "aim," as the westerners say, to make this letter so long, but I do admire cowboys and horses and fearless horsemanship and ranch life generally, so much that It la hard to detach mysell from the fascinating subject. We are going to pose now for some characteristic pictures. We, means the boys and girls, the manager, the dogs, tho horses and cattle. May success crown the effort to reproduce this animated mass In a distinct and well grouped picture. Ems L. Chat man. Newlin, Tkx., Aug. 1, 1893. Probate Court.

Washinotok, Au?. ll.-In the nate CO time was lost In beginning the silver bat tle. The echo of the president's message had hardly died away when the exchange of shots began. Senator Hill's compro mise bill, to repeal sections 1.3 and 4 of the Sherman silver law and declaring that such repeal should not be considered an abandonment of blmetalism, and, further, that the policy of the government should be the maintenance of gold and sliver as the standard of money metal, was first in troduced. A score or more bills were In troduced in the senate, covering almost every Imaginable financial idea Irom free coinage to the single gold standard. Then Senator Hale stirred up the whole demo cratic side by offering a resolution tor the meeting of the senate at 11 o'clock every day, and stating that be did so lo strength en the president's hand by accomplishing repeal quickly. Ex-Speaker Heed came about as near voicing the sentiments of the republican! in congress ss anybody could come, when he said of President Cleveland's message that it was sound from a republican point ol view so lar as It related to the financial situation, but wrong in assuming the sil ver law to be the underlying cause of the country's troubles. Mr. Reed thinks the trouble caused by the uncertainty which prevails at to finance and tariff, and every thing upon which business calculations can be based, and tbat to remove one of the uncertainties will do little or no good if the others be allowed to remain. ' There Is general disappointment because President Cleveland failed lo his message to recommend a substitute for the Sher man silver Isw, It looks as (bough he was alraid to put himself on record. It Is every day growing more evident mat something must be put in the place ol it, if the silver law be repealed. Statements ane made which indicate that the reason President Cleveland recommeuded no sub stitute was that he wished the first move for a compromise to come from the silver men. Senator Lodge's resolution directing the financial committee lo rvpoital once a bill for the repeal of, the silyer law and pro viding for a vote thereon on August 92, so alarmed the democratic senators that they held two cauenssee In oue day to- arrange a program, but tny did. not succeed in, getting any further than the appointment of a steering comiuit'ee with Benatoi Gor man at lis bead.

Jfor nearly forty years I was Its slave almost coutinu- ally. I tried to quit out coma not. i orousu kindness of friends I was Induced to try Dr. Matcbett's Infallible Indian Tobacco Antidote, which took away all desire for the filthy weed. It Is nearly three months since I nsed It and 1 have a disgust rather than a desire for it I used in all three boxes ot the antidote and wu completely cured In two weeka. I have delayed this to see rf the effects would be lasting.
