Science has proven catarrh to he a constitutional disease, and it there fore requires constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured bv F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo. Ohio, is theonly constitutional cure on the market. It is taken internally in doses from 10 drops to a teaspoonful. It acts directly on tne blood and mucous surfaces of the system.

Our citizens take a pride in their schools, value the training of the young, and often send their children away for higher education. No college in Amer ica for young women ranks higher than the Woman's College of Baltimore, with its faculty of twentyflve specialists, ele gant buildings of granite, including thoroughly equipped laboratories, and the finest gymnasium In America for women, with lU set of thirtyflve Zander machines made to order in Stwkholiu, Sweeden, its swimming pool, walking tracks, etc., its situation in a section of country noted for its healthfulness and mildness of climate, in a city proverbial for its cleanliness and excellent sanitary conditions. The Johns Hopkins university diffuses an atmosphere of studious investigation and literary taste, and affords manv on- portunities for hearing eminent scholars in all departments of learning; the privilege of consulting largo and well selected libraries Peabody, Pratt, His torical, Mercantile Bar, Medical and Chinirgieal, together with the university library, aggregating nearly half a mill ion volumes. The art gallery of the Pea body institute is open all the year, and celebrated private galleries a portion of each winter. The Peabody symphony concerts offer musical entertainment and stimulus. The close proximity of uie nauonai capital renders accessible its libraries, museums and sralleries of art. The Woman's college has already three nomes ior its students and will build a fourth next year. Each of these accom modates from sixty to seventy students. ten servants and an experienced house keeper. A "lady In charge" presides over each home. Her position is a most important one. She is a member of the faculty, represents the col lecre authority in the home; is expected to direct the thought and to efficiently counsel the young women; to seek to develop In them a Christian character and to secure to them the refinement of Christian culture; In short, her duties are that of nreenn tress. Mrs. Mary McDermott Santley has recently been chosen "lady in charge" of home A. Some of our Wellington arirls may, ere long, have the honor of being admitted to tho vi oman's college of Hal timore.

Baird on West Main street and E. Bernard ou North Main street have been closed; also the wholesale room in the James Sheldon building. One of the proprietors of the latter named was Interviewed on the sub ject, and he claimed that there was but little margin on bottled goods, as the profits were made In retailing it over the counter, and as that could nut be done here, and the public sentiment was so strong against the business they decided to discontinue trade. He further stated that there was danger of litigation in such business in this town that would consume all one could make In a year to pay counsel fees and costs. Wellington is no good place to do business in the sale of intoxicating drinks, so we will send our bottles back and close doors. FIRE. Tuesday evening. July 3. at about l():.l o clock, the lire alarm wits riven, to which the department promptly responded. The binzo was in a frame building on the west side of the Big Four track, south side West Main street. The building be longed to the Standard Oil comnanv. of Cleveland, Ohio, and contained fiftyfour barrels of oil. A!l that could be dono was to confine the flames to the building As the blaze was on tho inside and could not be reached, and being combustible matter, it was entirely beyoud the control of the department. How the fire orig inated is unknown. Some claim It was from sky-rockets sent up in that vicinity, wiille others think It was from sparks from an engine on the Big Four. The Western Union wires were all melted. and the long distance telephone wires damaged. Loss $500, with no insurance. The probabilities are that the company will order It rebuilt forthwith.

Chap man, E. F. Webster and W. R. Wean, who hold four hundred and ninety shares of the stock of the First National bank, of Wellington, seek to enjoin the county treasurer, n. P. Chapman, from collect ing taxes on said shares, which they claim have been over-valued, and that the auditor of the county and fit the state board of equalization for banks have re fused to allow any reduction for the in debtedness of said shareholders, from the value of said shares. Plaintiffs aver that the sum actually due as taxes on said shares Is $185.80, and the amount claimed as due is $1(33.50. They wish to restrain the treasurer from collecting the differ ences, claiming that their indebtedness exceeds thoir liabilities. They also ask that the treasurer be enjoined perpetu ally from collecting taxes as the same stand charged upon his 1893 duplicate. The defendant denies that bank stock Is a credit which can be offset against in debtedness. On the hearing, proof was made that debts of the several parties owning bank stock largoly exceeded the amount of stock held by them. It illus trates a method showing how a banking business may be conducted nnon the ba sis of debt as a capital. If the claim of plaintiffs Is allowed it Is the beginning of a policy which will take from the du plicate the entire valuation of national bank stock, amounting In Lorain county to over $ (00,000. Judge Nye has the case under consideration. No matter what his decision may be the case is likely to go to the supreme court. Reporter. LOCAL RAILWAY NOTES. BIO FOUR.
