Congressman Mud does'ht object to the fun that is poked at his name so long as he can continue to boss the Maryland Republicans, On the new postal cards there will appear for the first time in any postal issue, rthe head of John Adams the second President of United States. A recent census of the attorneys of Lorain county shows that there are forty five who derive their li7ing from the practice of their profession. Some people are surprised that Sen ator Hanna is such a good talker. But then Senator Hanna has good subjects to talk on. It really takes vast orator ical abi'ity for other fellows to make any kind of a showing. The crop report of the state agricult ural board was issued recently, The wheat yield is estimated at 40,000,000 bushels, but it falls short 12,000,000 busheh of the enormous yield of the state in 1894. However the price more than makes up the deficiency. As was to have been expected, the cannard' about Senator. Foraker's abandonment of the fight in Ohio was one of the "regulation" Democratic bulletins. Senator Foraker smiled at the report, and said the Republicans would win handsomely ; also that J. B. Foraker was in the campaign to stay, too. The officials of the post office depart ment recently announced that a change in the color of the two-cent postage stamp would be made from carmine to green. Since then their at tention has been called to the fact that the international postal congress, which met at Washington last sum mer, agreed upon certain colors for the poBtnge stamp of all the countries in the postal union. The color of the two-cent stamp was agreed upon as carmine, hence the change will not be made. The longest electric railroad in the world is to be. built by a Cleveland company, from Cleveland to Cincin nati. The company was Incorporated Thursday last with a capital of $750, 000.

The road will be built especially for speed, and the fare will be less than one-half of the steam rail road rates. Neurly one thousand men will be employed in building the road. Geo. McLaurin of Miss., was appoint ed Hernando de Soto Money U. S. Sen ator to fill the vacancy caused by the deatli of Senator George.

President McKinley will go home to vote. lie will travel several hundred of miles so that he t an do his duty as a citizen of Ohio and the United States. Yellow Fever has gained a strong foothold in Galveston Texas. All trains are Btopped from running in or out of the city. Jackson, Miss., is effected in a like manner.

By the death of Neal Dow,- this country looses one of its most famous and earnest prohibition leaders.

Blanco will assume command of affairs on the Island at once. Gen. Blanco says that he has the greatest desire to end the honors of war and to establish peace by a system which he adopted in 1879. DEATH OF MRS. NICKLES. A Pure Spirit Goes to Its Heavenly Re ward. Mrs. Susan H. Nickles died Friday evening at 10 o'clock in Toledo, after a some what protracted illness- Thus passed from its earthly tenement a spirit, pure SPd. ypdefiled, to its Heav enly and everlasting rest. Mrs. Nickles was a daughter of the late Judge Jackson, of Richland county who was highly honored and respected by all who knew him. She wag born August 28th, 1818, near Belleville, Richland county, and waa oiift of a large family of children. Among them were the late William Jackson, of Monroeville. Mrs. Caroline Kellogg, of this city, and Mrs. J. L. Bonar, of Mansfield. Mrs. Nickles had five child dren living; Mrs. Anna N. Probert and Harry W. Nickles, of Cleveland ; Ben jamin J. Nickles of the State of Wash ington ; Dr. Robert E. Nickles and Mrs. C. C. Culp, of Salina, Kansas. She was an aunt of Mrs. M. Patrick, Mrs. F. H. Boalt, Miss Alma Wboster, Mrs. F. S. Breckenridge, Mrs. F. C. Wickham. and Capt. John Adams, of Norwalk, end Mrs. W. S. Wickham, Washington D. C. The deceased, who was the widow of the late John P. Nickles, of Welling ton, was a resident of Wellington for a number of years and moved to Leaven worth, Kansas; then the family moved back to Wellington, where Mr. Nickles afterwards died. Several years ago the family moved to Norwalk and re sided here until they moved to Cleve land. Mrs. Nickles was a woman of unus ual intelligence and her life was a very active one. Her hands and heart were always enlisted in every good work, actuated as they were by an intense love for the Devine Master, whom she loved and served with singleness of purpose. Her church and her home were the objects for which she devoted her life, but outside of these she found time to do much labor of love for those who where poor and unfortunate. Her love for others made her ever active, and she was constantly going about do ing good. The Congregational church, of which she was for many years a member, counted on her for much ac tive work and she never failed to re spond. The full power of her bright intellect was ever exercised in the church, tha Sunday school and in the community which she blessed and adorned with her presence. For three score and ten years the world about her was made happy by her genial, warm hearted, loving companionship. She did not live in.vain. The good she did in the world will live after her, Her prayers, coupled with an all per vading faith in the goodness . and mecy of God, enabled her to work out not only for herself, but for others, an eternal weight of glory. Last Friday night, a short time before midnight, the light of her earthly life went out and she awakened into a new and' bet ter existence with a heavenly calm up. on her pure sweet face. ' Her funeral was held Monday after noon at 2:00 oclock in Wellington, at the Congregational church. F. C. W. Norwalk Reflector. ' What Dr. A. K. Suiter Says. , . Buffalo, N. V. .

Upon entering the stall the horse seiz ed him by the right arm, lacerating and tearing it in a terrible manner. Mr. McRoberts immediately went to Oberlin where he had the wound dress ed. The horse continued to grow worse and ' apparently died in great agony. The symytoms were the same as those of rabbies.. Mr. McRoberts bps now gone to Cliicago to take the Pustuer treatment. Some democrats ftitempod to cast slurs at Congressman T. U. Burton, at Lorain last week, who was going to make an address at a republican mass meeting, by posting up a sign in a lot containing the burned ruins of a two story frame building, with th fol lowing inscription on it; ''Burton will speak here tonight, prosperity has come." The artist no doubt thought the property was owned by Mr. Bur ton, which was not the case. We think if there is a joke yi it, it has been turned upon the artiBt.

Readers of the Enterprise will be glad to learn of a new book entitled "A Hero in Homespun : A Tale of the Loyal South," by Rev. William E. Bar ton, D. D. of Boston, Dr. Barton went from Wellington to Boston, and his frequent visits to Wellington since have always shown the deepest inter est in this town where he is well known. The book is published by Lamson, Wolffe & Co. of Boston, and will be out about October 20. We shall have an extended review of it as soon as it appears. Meantime we are glad to give our readers some advance information concerning the general nature of the book: In this story is set forth for the fist time the civil war as it affected the Union people of the South. The theme is unhackneyed, and of absorbing in terest. Tho historical background 4s true to fact, and changes with the pro gress of events Jn the war. The char acters are .sturdy types of mountain manhood and womanhood. Many cf the incidents are historical, original and picturesque. There is constant human interest, with humor and path os. Several generals f the civil war, with Parson Brownlow and Andrew Johnson, are among the characters. r . 1 DR. BARTON. The delineation of "the fighting par son" is particularly strong and life like. The story follows the order of events in the war as it touched Ken tucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, Ohio, and the adjacent 'states, and has no little historic value. The scenes vary from those of the home to those of the battlefield. Wildcat Mouhtaln, Mill Spring, and other minor engagements of tho early war are described with historic. fidelity, arid the. great battles of Knoxville, Nashville, Stone River, and the fighting about Cumberland Gap. and other events in the exper ienae of the Army of the Cumberland, are truthfully depicted, and belong to the life story of the characters. The scouting, bushwhacking, gueril la warfare, strainsd social relations, political affiliations, religious experi ence, domestic life and love making of the time are all touched upon. It is believed that so adequate a picture of the mountain region of the South at the time of the civil war has never be fore appeared in print. The illustrations are by Dan Beard, whose ability to delineate pioneer and military life is well known, and who, with the author and publisher, has traversed the gro.ind for this especial purpose, reproducing the scenery and typography with rare felicity, and se lecting fine types of character for the personnel of the book. The half-tones illustrating battlefields and scenery are made'for the book, and are finished by hand. PRESS CLIPPINGS.
