D., 1894. at the reerular votine dace or places in said village, between the hours or 0:30 a. m. and oao p. m. (central standard time) of said day, and that the mayor of said village is hereby author ized and directed to issue a proclamation calling for such special election, and the mayor be directed to give notice of the submission or. sucu question lor tuteen days in one or more newspapers printed and of general circulation in said village of Wellington, Ohio, once a weeK lor two ip) consecutive weeKs, stat ing the amount of bonds to be issued, the purpose for which they are to be issued, and the time and place for holding the election; ana tne clerk De directed to cer tify a true and certified copy of this res olution to the state supervisors of elec tion of Lorain county, Ohio, to the end that ballots shall be prepared ana neces sary arrangements made for the submis sion of such question to the qualified flier tors of nam viliaore.

Goodwin, Clerk. supplies which wore at least question able, are rendered wholesome by sand fil ters. Thelargest of these in this coun try are at Lawrence, Mass., where 5,000, 000 gallons are daily filtered on 2 acres of filters. By filtering the water from a storage reservoir, the people of Wellington could feel sure of a pure and wholesome water supply. The present is the most favorable time ever known in this country for building waterworks, for iron pipe which is the most expensive single item can be bought for about half what it could in 1887. Pumps and all waterwork supplies are also at a very low figure. The exact cost of a waterworks plant with four miles of mains, standpipe, filter, Btorage reservoir, etc., could only be determined by detailed plans, but $35,000.00 would be an outside figure, and the cost would doubtless eome much inside of this. Street lighting with coal oil lamps can nanny be considered sufficient for a progressive village and as you have no gas or electric plant in the town, the possibilities should be considered of installing an electric light plant in the pumping station where the same building, boilers and engineer would serve for both plants. This could be done at a small additional cost and then Wellington would be up to the other villages of Lorain county in line of pub lic Improvements. Respectfully submitted, W. B. Gerrish.

Knowing this, we never presume to dictate to her as to what or where she shall buy. "We only desire that she may, while on a tour of shopping, exercise her right to go where she pleaseSj and Her Judgment REPORT THAT RECORD. It is now evident that the town record was stolen rrom tne cierirs oince oy persons designing to reap some benefit out of the transaction by evading the law. Upon examination it is ascer tained that all of the original ordinances and resolutions are on file, signed by the different mayors attested by the clerks and under the corporation seal. The record is merely a copy of the ordinances and resolutions. , The minutes of each meeting are still on file, which show how the ordinances were passed. So the town is possessed of full powers just the same without the record as with it. It will be quite an expense to the town to have all of the or dinances, resolutions and minutes re coDied. but it will be done, so the thief will have all his trouble for nothing. The better plan to adopt hereafter is to place the records in the town hall vault where they would be a little more secure. COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS. Council met in' adjourned session Monday evening. The mayor, clerk and all members present except Vincent. The civil engineer from Oberlin was present and submitted his statement Mr. Herrick offered a resolution declar ing it necessary to issue bonds for the construction of waterworks. The resolu tion was discussed for one hour and final ly passed. . Mr. Horton made a motion that the clerk be authorized to purchase a Journal for the purpose of keeping a copy of the record. Carried. Council then adjourned. , A Good Appetite always accompanies good health, and an absence of appetite is an Indication of something wrong. The universal testi mony given by those who have used Hood's Sarsaparilla, as to its merits in restoring the appetite, and as a purifier of the blood, constitutes the strongest recommendation that can be nrged for any medicine. Hood's Pills cure liver Ills, biliousness, jaundice, indigestion, sick headache. 25c. On the Possibilities of Water Works, for the Village of Wellington. To the Mayor and Council of Welling ton, Ohio, Gentlemen: A few years ago water works were al most unknown outside of the large cities, and they were then considered a luxury. but the steady increase in fire losses dem onstrated that water works were a necess ity, as it is hardly practicable to cope with fires by any other means. The increase in the number of water works plants during the past few years has been unprecedented, until now many hamlets even are protected by this means, You are liable, as a village, to have a single fire which would entail a loss equal to the entire cost of a first class plant. If you do not have the water works you will have the loss and no works; if you have the works they will be a perpetual protection against any such large loss. The argument for waterworks from a sanitary standpoint I will pass by, and turn to the consideration of where you can get water, and what the works will cost. The possible sources of supply are 1. Wells. 2. Springs. 3. Storage reservoirs. The formation around Wellington is a glacial till, and this contains pockets of sand and gravel which hold water, but there is no large underlying area from which an inexhaustable supply of water could be obtained, The remarks upon wells will apply to the springs northwest of the village, The flow from these springs is too small for an . entire supply, and this would needs be supplemented with a storage reservoir. It would be unsafe to locate one here, as the water will certainly be contaminated by sewage from the village, The third and last chance is storage reservoir. That is building reservoirs which would take the spring flow of either Wellington or Charleymonte creeks, and storing it for use during the sum mer months. This is the method pursued by many of the seaboard cities, notably New York and Boston, whose immense empounding rosorvoirs are filled in the spring for a supply during the dry weather of sum mer. Bellevue, Ohio, stores its water supply in this way, and so must Oberlin as soon as the consumption exceeds the dry weather flow of the Vermillion river. Both the creeks near Wellington offer fine opportunities for building large storage reservoirs at a small cost. Chem ical analysis shows that the water in these reservoirs Improves with time, bnt this should be sup plemented with sand filtration. The possibilities ot purifying water by this means were not appreciated until they were deinonstratedattheLawrenceexper- iment station of the Massachusetts state JUSTICE COURT. Jerome Lamphier brought an action before Justice Vanator against H. M. Hines for the recovery of fifty dol lars. The case was set for trial Monday at 9 a. m. J. H. Dickson appeared for for plaintiff and Hon and Haskell for defendant. Hines did not deny the debt but filed an offset for board, etc., to the amount of $60. Lamphier is father-in- law to Hines. which made the case a family affair. By the time the attorneys closed their picas it was near 6 o'clock. The jury then retired and brought in a verdict of one dollar in favor of the de fendant. It is somewhat an usual oc curence to have a misunderstanding with the " father-in-law, it U usually the mother-in-law that figures conspicu ously. . If the plaintiff does not appeal or get the verdict set aside he will lose his fifty dollars, pay the cost of action and attorney's fees. in purchasing what pleases her. To adopt this course will prove to her a money saver and give the greatest satisfaction to us, for we court comparison of qualities and prices.

Henry appeared at the opera house Saturday evening, l his was the open ing for the season, and the first troupe that had visited this place since spring. The company had leased the opera house for one week previous and had been drilling every day for the occasion. The opera house was well filled, prob ably the largest audience since the open ing by Rhea in 1886. Mr. Henry has been with us several times before and al ways has a good house. This is one of the best advertisements a troupe can have. ; The entire program, although the first time produced, was given without a break and gave entire satisfaction. .: PIONEER MEETING. ' At a gathering of old settlors one year ago, held in Wellington, a committee was mart9 to provide for future meetings and permanent organization. This committee has named Saturday, Sept, and the public park or town hall at 9:30 a. m. Basket lunch Is expected. We feel sure general interest and attendance and much enjoyment will come.
