The New York Journal goes right on showing that prosperity has arrived and meantime silver goes right on In Its cheapness. Ohio Republican's do not want to see the hands of their President tied. The election of an Ohio Democrat to the Sen ate would completely do this. No wonder McLean, McConville, and Chapman are trying to get away from their silver platform. Silver has fallen 15 per cent, in value since they cram med it down the throat of the party slx ty days ago, while wheat has advanced with even greater rapidity. People who are following President McKinley's cuban policy closely begin to see the criticisms of three months .ago were not only unfounded but unjust. It is now quite apparent that he is going to obtain much more satisfactory results, and by probably entirely peaceful meth ods. Ohio Republicans should remember thatupou their action in the election depends whether the Senate of the Unit ed States is to he Republican or Democ ratic during the next two years. . The election of a Democrat from this State would absolutely turn over the control of the Senate to the Democrats. And now it is said that gold fields of as great richness as those of Klondyke are being doveloped in Nevada. Perhaps Senator Stewart will become a gold bug again and renew his speech of 1874, in which he said, "the question will never be decided until you determine whether the laboring man is entitled to have a gold dollar if he earns it or whether you are going to cheat him with something else." The political campaign on the part of the republican party was formally opened on Saturday of last week by three large meetings In different parts of the country. Senators Forakef and Hanna, Ex. Gov. Chas. Foster and Hon. J. J Sullivan were the speakers at Burton, 0.; Gov. Bushnell, J. C. Burrows, Atty. Gen.. Monnctt and D. K. Watson at Newark. 0.; Senator John M. Thurston, Charles H. Grosvenor, Lieut. Gov. Asa W. Jones andlLM. Daugherty at Washington, C.H. The meetings were largely at tended indicating that the people are In terested in the coming election. An ordinance prohibiting the throwing of glass and other things of like character dangerous to bicycles on the streets might bring about a reform which a disregard for the feelings of others will never do. Many people object to wheelmen making use of the sidewalks, even in wet weath er when the streets are muddy,' but some of these same people will allow their children to play in the streets with glass bottles and break them and every frag ment of the broken glass is a menance to a bicycle tire. And some persons make a practice of throwing broken lamp chimneys, old nails, pieces of boards with tacks in them, etc., into the streets to get them out of the way. This is wrong; and people should see it in the right light. "Do unto others as ye would be done by," is the divine In duction, but so few people read their bible's now days that we suppose they are not posted. Today the great free silver camp-meeting will open at Springfield, 0., and will be continued one week. This meet ing promises to be one of the greatest events of the kind ever witnessed in the United States. More than forty of the most prominent advocates of bimetallsm will speak during the meeting. Among them will be, Honf Chas. A. Towne, Hon, Henry M. Teller, non. Horace L. Chap man, lion. T. E. Parsney, Hon. Jas. R. Sovereign, Hon. Jas. R. Jones, Hon. Geo. F. Williams, Hon. Oliver Downing, Rev Sam W. Small, Mrs. Helen Oouger, Miss Nellie G. Robinson and many other noted speakers. A large tent which will hold 8,000 people has been erected upon the fair grounds and yet, judging from the great number of telegrams being re ceived from all parts of the country, the indications are that this will be in adequate to meet the demands of the committee who have the ' matter in charge. - Last week witnessed many evidences of a revival of trade very gratifying to Wellington business men. Wednesday noon the Enterprise man noted over forty teams hitched along the business streets, and the following morning at seven o'clock over s dozen teams were counted on West Main street alone The same can be said of almost any day. during the week. This is the . best evi dence of the return of prosperity we have yet seen. The farmers are marketing good crops and getting good prices for them. They have money to spend, and owing to the long spell of hard times which they have encountered are In need of many tilings and will buy them: al though their money will probably be spent less freely than it used to be. Hard times have taught us a good lesson that of economy. It people would practice this virtue more extensively there would be less complaint when crops are short or the price is low. Townspeople need to practice economy more than farmers, but they, as a rule, do not like to admit the fact. Living in town requires cash income to meet expenses, living on the farm does not. The farmer, when he rnns short of cash can still raise enough to live on, but when the poor man in town gets out of cash he is "busted." Merchants don't like to sell goods on credit unless the debtor has some reasonable prospect of meeting his payments, and a man In town with a family who does not posss. ess credit is in a mighty hard row stumps. It behooves such men in days of plenty to make provision for hard times that may come aud place their families in' a condition of suffering whicn they connot alleviate. HOW TO KILL YOUR TOWN. Buy of peddlers as often and as much as possible. Denounce your merchants because they make a profit on their goods. Make your town out to be a very bad place and tell It every chance you get Knife every man who disagrees with yon in business and the best meth ods of increasing business. Refuse to unite in any scheme for the betterment of material Interest for the people. Keep every cent you get and don't do any thing of a public nature unless you can make something out of it directly. Tell your merchant you can buy goods cheap er at the next town, and say it in such a way that It will leave the impression that you have faith in it. If a stranger comes to your town tell him that every thing is overdone, and predict a general crash in the near future, give him all the cold shoulder you can. Patronize outside papers to the exclusion of your own, and denounce them for not being as newsy as city papers. If you are a merchant don't advertise in your home paper, buy a rubber stamp and use it, but don't forget to ask the local paper to boom your business at every opportunity; it may save you a few- dimes and make your paper look as if it was printed in a one horse town. If you are a farmer curse the town where you trade as the meanest place on earth, tell your neighbors so, make them think the business men are thieves and robbers, it will make your property less valuable but you don't care.

Warner, was discovered in a blaze. The fire bell was qnickly sound ed and very soon the volunteer fire lad dies were assembled at the engine house and had the hand pump out and ready for use. The fire had not gathered ranch headway as yet, and a well direct ed stream of water speadily extinguished the flames. Mr. W. E. Peirce climbed upon the roof of the American Honse with a pail of waterand from there crossed over to the fire and ponred water upon it, before the fire hose was connect edand in operation. The pail of water probably checked the blaze to some ex tent as it had not fairly started. The fire is supposed to have been caus ed by a defective flue. A lady is living on the upper floor of the. building and had left a little fire in the stove after preparing her dinner. No damage of consequence resulted. ,Rev. Barton's New Book. Rev. William E. Barton of Boston, well and favorably known in this part of Ohio, is the author of a new historical novel, the title of which is "A Hero in Homespun, a Tale of the Loyal South." It is a story of the Civil War, in. which many of the incidents are historical and picturesque. It will be remembered that while a resident of Oberlin some years ago, Mr. Barton wrote a book which was printed at the News office, entitled "Life In the Hills of Kentucky," which con tained two stories of thrilling interest, describing scenes in Southern mountain life which no one not having personal associations with those people could have given. With more experience in life and practice In literary work since that book appeared, it may be anticipated that the new book will possess rare merit. It is to be illustrated by Dan Beard, the artist. Oberlin News. C. E. Sutliff Improving. Mr. Fred Sutliff Is In receipt of a let ter from his brother G. E- Sutliff, who recently went to Mt.

The many friends of Mr. Sutliff will rejoice to learn of this great improvement in his health. SULLIVAN. TheY. P.S. C.
