Co. will come up for hearing tomorrow at Elyria. The firing of dynamite in llorr's Pond, nt the foot of Courtland avenue, will take place Monday, July 5th, at 10:C0 o,clock, a. rn. Mrs. Sheldon Clark, of Brighton, died yesterday morning at 11 o'clock of heart trouble. Funeral will be held at her late home tomorrow. Word has been sent to parties in town that they will probably receive a visit from the Mansfield-Wellington electric line projectors in a few days. Hi Henry and his new minstrels, numbering nearly 100, will reach Well ington July 25. They will commence rehearsels the 26, and will open here Aug. 7. Society in Wellington will be sorry to lose the family of Mr. A. B. Lambert. They are about to remove to Cleveland in the future and make the forest city their home. In exchange for this popu lar family, however, Wellington society will have a dish-able acquisition to its ranks in the persons of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Lashly, of Cleveland. They will occupy the former residence of the Lamberts. ' One who claims to know says it is a peculiar thing that one can ride a bi cycle in the sun for hours without the air in the tubes expanding to an extent that will burst or strain the inner tube ; yet if a cycle is placed against a foot path and allowed to rest quietly for a quarter of an hour, the chances ure that a bursted or strained tube will be the result. When resting in hot summer weather, cyclists should al ways place the wheels under cover, or, if not, they should be slightly deflated. , The Mansfield News has the fallow ing to say regarding the duty of par ents to the public schools: "How many parents visit the schools occas ionally? A good many fathers go to circuses, horse races ami ball pimes, who never see the inside of a school building -where their children are be ing educated and it is barely possible some mothers who never miss a milli nery opening, a club meeting, or a dance, ihave yet to make the acquain their children, or to visit the school the young hopefuls attend. It is safe to say that this is not the fault of tlhe teachers. Ice Cream and Cake. The ladies' of Melchoir court, Tribe of Ben-Hur, will serve ice cream and cake on the park, on Saturday evening July 8. The usual price per dish will doubtless prevail. Come all. Organ Recital. This evening from 7 to 8 o 'clock the Y. P. 8. C. E. of the Congregational church will serve ice cream on the grounds. At 8 o'clock an organ recital will be given by Prof. Walter F. Skeele of Los Angeles, Cal. The sum of 15 cents pays for ice cream and admission to the recital. All are invited. If the weather should be stormy the ice cream will be served in the Sunday School rooms. High School Picnic. Two class picnics were enjoyed on Wednesday of last week, by the grad uating and present senior classes re spectively. The graduates held their picnic, at Whitefox, in a grove near the Little Vermillion river. An enjoyable time was reported to have been participat ed in by both at the grounds, and during the long ride homeward. Near ly all were present. The class of 'OS selected William's grove, two miles and one-half north of town as the scene of their festivities. The class came home at evening feel ing tired but happy. Keep yonr Flreworki until Monday. Inasmuch as the 4th of July comes this year on Sunday, the day most generally observed will be Monday, the 6th, and the celebrating of independ ence day should be postponed until that time. While not wishing to restrain feelings of patriotism, I would suggest tlat the firing of crackers and other fin-works usually indulged in on the ni;jht previous to that day be dispen . se.l with, and that there be no demon stration of any kind on Saturday eve ning. I offer, this suggestion in the interest of those who drive in from the country on Saturday nights to trade, and are obliged to hitch their teams and leave them in order that they may go about their business. The ordin ance is strict against it, and I trust it will be complied with. Geo. L. Couch, Mayor. An Unique BRl'. The badge given at Chillicothe to Grand Army delegates was a pretty one, and intended to perpetuate his torical facts. The medal was of bronze, on one side of which was a pro file of Govenor Tiffin, the first govenor of Ohio, after it was admitted to the union. He resided in that city and is buried on Cemetery Hill. On the re presentation of the old state house, when Chillicothe was the capital. THE MAN ON THE STREET. I don't think it need worry a man if his sweetheart looks unusually thin these days. She is not going into a de cline. It is only the new style of sleeves that make her look narrow. I hear that the girls are already begin ning to circulate the fairy tale about ice cream being a sure cure for hiccoughs. If this thing is not soon stopped some of these girls may get a real attack of hiccoughs some day. As I stood on the corner the other day, waiting for the sprinkling cart to pass, the thought came to me, if it did not cost the business men of Welling ton more for this sprinkling of the streets than the additional taxes would be had the town been bonded and the proposed waterworks put in. . A step in the right direction was made when the park committee had the band-stand repaired and painted, and the railing around the Bouth part put up. I think they should go a step farther and put in some rustic benches. A great many people come to town every Saturday evening, and as the band is always an attraction, the peo ple who congregate to listen have no place to make themselves comfortable, and I am sure that if seats were placed in the park people would appreciate them. The Checker Club which meets at R. C. Adams' store on North Main street for daily amusement these delightfully pleasant days is playing a series of games for the championship of Well ington. The leaders in the games played thus far are Mr. "Joe" Yokum alias "John Brown," thu latter a nomr dr. guerre for this event only, and Mr. John Sherman, whose pseudonym for this contest is "T. M. Ticklebritches." The rivalry between these two experts is tremendously exciting. The bettfng is about even, perhaps a trifle in favor of "John Brown." Many of the enthu siastic spectators seem to consider him a dark horse. One of the most industrious citizens of Wellington, is Wah Sing, the celes tial laundry artist on the east side of the square. The other day I passed a group of idlers in front of Wah Sing's place, who were vigorously and loudly talk ing politics. As the discussion grew in volume of sound, there was a move ment from the inside of the laundry, the door opened and out walked the gentle mongolian. He paused a mo ment, squinting his oblique eyes at the noisy crowd. Then he apparently made up his mind to interfere. The skin on his brow was suddenly wrinkled in Continuous corrugated folds, his lips set close against his teeth, con temptuously, and from his mouth issued the foil wing: "Go way, noisy melican man, alle samee talkee to muchee politickee. Sabe him no sawee wood alle samee loafee, talkee, talkee, lats 1" Advertlicd Letteri, J. F. Brandt, Roswell Chapin, F. M. Fuller, Miss Lena RoselleLowler, Neal Stewart. . C. W. Arner, Postmaster.

He has lately received the nomination, by acclamation, for Prosecuting Attor ney at the Fulton County Convention. Senior Reception, On last Tuesday night the reception given by the class of '07 to '98 was held in the G. A.R. hall, which was appro priately decorated with the colors of the two classes. A cobweb of strings, formed of as many strings as there were girls in the company was suspended from lamps and picture frames. At the end of each string, hidden away in some un t bought of place, was a card bearing a boys name. It was each girl's duty to untangle her piece of string and to hnd her card, and in this way her portner for supper. The first of the evening wos devoted to games of every sort imaginable. Then refreshments were served, followed by interesting toasts of which the following was the program : loastmistress rauline Hayes Address Frans Sl ogland Response . Leon Adams "When 1 was a Girl" Grace Canfield "'When I was a Boy" Clair Metzger "The ex-Senior" Edni Lambert "Wood Cuts" Prof. R. H. Kinnison "County Life" Jennie Eckels "Our Ambitions" Guy Fisher "Sunshine" Miss Sprague "The Bobsled" Ethel Camp "The Girls 'OS" Hubert Fisher A lively air was struck up and soon all were deep in the intricacies of a grand march, which was followed by dancing. The party broke up at an early hour, declaring it to have been a most delightful evening. Hlh School Reception. A week of festivity was brought to a fitting close last Thursday evening by the farewell reception given in honor of Miss Alma Sprague by the members of our high school. The dancing hall was dranped with the high school color, yellow, and the respective colors of its classes. After greetings had been exchanged, and all hnd cordially welcomed our honored guest, we were called to order by the presiding oilicer, Mert Carpenter. The following literary program was enjoyed by all : Piano Solo Bessie Eidt Recitation Ethel Camp Violin Solo Frans Skoglnnd Recitation Fred Hanson Piano Solo Emily Davis Such a wagging of tongues the con versation cards produced must have satisfied their originator, for surely no better way of mixing up a crowd, and getting them acquainted, was ever de vised. The sixth topic, "Ladies' Choice," proved to be the means of procuring partners for supper. Wre now joined in the grand march to the time of enchanting music, and after much promenading, marching and re marching, we descended to the Mayor's court room, where refreshments were served. Toasts were then in order and were as follows : "The Parting Look Mary Sutliff Extempore M iss Sprague "Vacation" Frank VanCleef "Junior Work and Duties" Maud Sticknev "The Great Unknown" Ida Lambert "Class Parties" Clair Metzger "Our Marching" Warren Hull "Spare Time" Clarence Wall "The School Council, "Lizzie Rodhouse Returning to the boll room, we spent the remainder of the time with dancing interspersed now and then with a promenade. There was but one thing that pre vented this from being the happiest of times, and that wos the oft recurring thought that never again would Miss sprague meet with us as our teacher. Though she may often visit her many friends in this town, and even mingle with us in happy re-union, she will never be ours again, others will claim her as their own. This year's graduat ing class may well rejoice that it was permitted them to finish under her care and instruction. The merry crowd grew sober as the time for part ing came, and we must bid adieu to her whom we had learned to love so well. Briny tears were shed as we wended our way homeward, guided by the rays of the morning star, each with a red rose clasped close to his heart, for the reception was now a thing of the past.
