One half the world, it is said, creates surprise and di version for the other half. And then the first half by re alizing its work, finds amuse ment, recreation and food for thought. And thus we all are entertained and find life rob ed of its gloomy aspect. Then, taking this view of it, the "sen sational" is not always to be condemned. In many cases a surprise is often termed sen sational, but this is not to be commended, for many object to the term. "We can cite to you many surprises that partake of the sensational phase and which are good and wholesome sur prises, too, doing , nobody any harm, instead everybody a large portion of good, but space forbids us mentioning any other than those given by Saur & Balsley year after year in the shape of rare bargains. At the end of each season this firm studies the wants of its immense patronage, and, comparing them with the mar ket, are enabled to keep con stantly surprising the adjacent country with new assortments at ever reduced prices. As the winter season is near- idg its close, Saur & Balsley have marked all goods down to the lowest notch so that the stock will not have to be car Tied over. It is by making this kind of warfare on prices that this firm has ever been able to meet its patronage with a new stock as each sea son opens. From now until spring you can get at almost your . own price anything in plush goods, toilet sets, oooks and stationary, albums, fancy . cards for teachers, knick knacks, etc., etc. This class of goods must, go, even if at sacrafice. With the opening of spring when improvements is in or der everywhere, you will find this house desirable headquar ters for the best paints and oils, wall-paper and window shades, a very little amount of money sufficing to purchase all you need to re-beautify the home. Especially is attention called to the John W. Masury paints which have never been known to fail in test. Wall paper is in stock and consists of more lovely shades and designs than ever. In Drugs and Patent Medi cines there is no necessity to recommend Saur & Balsley as they are recognized as leaders and head and shoulders above all competitors in this line. tn't of Space. 1 week 1 mo. 3mo.o mo. -cneeotnmn $4 on Jiaon s no Jnooii H " i 25 6 60 14 OOl 20 0 i ' ' 1 80 8 60 1 dOj 1 4 00 Onetnch 85 100 too 300 A NUISANCE Is the Law Against tbe Sale ol Intoxicat ing Liquors by Druggists. "If ever there mi an iniquitous, despotio measure enacted, the law touching on the ale of liquor by druggist is the most ty rannical," aaid one of our leading druggists. "The legislature thatenaoted it were fit sub. jecta for a reform school." '"What am I kicking about, did yon ask? Well, frankly, I am not kicking at nil. I was merely voic ing the kick of hundred who come in my store and give ns a who)eome kick and 'song and dance' over the short comings of the aforesaid legislature. I am voicing the kickof ladies who Iirvb often come in the store in a fainting condition and asked for a drink of brandy but which of course we were powerless to give unless a physician were handy. I am voicing the kicks of hundreds who have routed us out in the night time for some whisky for some rela tive who has been taken suddenly ill and in all probability was in imminent danger of death. Our answer in all sue "i cases, of course, must be according to the law, and a physician's J. Hsncock must be forthcom ing, or no whisky." "Does'nt your cons-ience get the best of you some times and fear of the law lost sight of?" was asked. "No, sir. We follow the law in evory in stance although I must confess it requires no little gritting of teeth to so do, especially when we are acquainted with tbe parties and know that their demands are worthy, I be lieve I have made more enemies from the date of that enactment than during the rest of my life." An interview with other druggists showed the same bitterness of feeling towards the measure, which, it is apparent, is a groat nuisance and should be repealed. NO SUN. Tbe Star Course Not up to The Expec tation of Crowded Houses; There is no little question in 'the minds of many as to the inappropriate christening of the ''Star Course," to which Napoleon needs no introduction. Considering the nnmber and variations in magnitude of our heavenly oonatellations there is no donbt but that a stndious and persistent astronomer can ap propriate' a shiner . for this application, bat we are not 'round doing it with the naked eye. Iu fact, the course ia no son likely to oolor-bllnd with brilliancy any tin-' fortnnates .who may occupy the . audienoe room. ' 1 i ' The seoond installment of this "starring' was here Saturday nightand if there are any who will put the oirouit on his oonsoieno e and say he oamo within 40 rods of being satisfied, we'll pat the kettle on and ask him in. That the first installment was dry no one will dispute; that the seoond one was equally as combustible with a little irrita tion thrown in, is generally acknowledged; and that the "Star Coarse" will kindly let ns off with only the two, is a prayer already worn out with repetition, ' We don't want any more whistling girls (or buoys;) we don't feel like paying to hear a toneless piano; panoramas and lengthy and intricate explanations, and hair splittin' on time of day of a man's death SO years ago command about as much interest here abonts as there is sentimentality in patting ap ioe. Of course we all attended not expecting to see a drama, but our most depressing condi tion summoned to meet the occasion, with the assistance of a clairvoyant, did not meet the bill. N. B. We are like George W. we can't lie. The Star course is no good and there are hundreds of pocket books to the exteut of $1.50 ready to be placed in evidence to prove it. Let the com 1 ittee heed onr ad vice and go the other extreme by means of a "Punch and Judy" exhibit in order to equal ize matters. Don't look upon this advice other than with the spirit of kindliness in which it is given . At the Bat. Fred Batter, who was held to wait the ac tion of tliti probate court on a peace warrant has shaken' the snow of the city off his bro gans and hied himself to Toledo. He was brought into court and on his pleading guilty Judge Baker allotted him three hours to leave town. He said that the Judge was too liberal, as three minutes would suffice, and the last seen of him he was enjoying the pleasant walk the Wabash roadbed afforded him. Defiauoo News. The same fellow gave Napoleon a sweep ing glance as he merrily tripped along the Wabash on his way to the Future Groat, Tuesdar. We interviewed him on tbe wing and as much as limited time would allow, found he had it laid in for Defiance, gener ally speaking, and thought Toledo wonld prove a "batter" plaoe for his oalling. Go ,Away Prom Home Fop News. The citizens of Napoleon are making a earnest effort to secure the proposed branch of the Wabash railroad that is to oonneot Toledo with tie Chioago division of the road. The right of way between Napoleon and Montpelier has been secured and the roadbed of the old Coldwater i Mansfield road purohased by a nnmber of citizens and will be donated to the new enterprise, pro vided the Wabash people decide to make the oonnsotion by that route.

"New't" Stevenson is a farmer of Teulonic build who has for many years been a resident of Monroe township. Gifted with a goodly portion of loquacity, without any education to back it, he has always had a hankering for exhorting, and whenever an opportunity afforded gave vent to his fancied talent. His wife and three children never knew what living free from want was and barely eked out a miserable existence while the husband and father oourted day dreams. About a year since, they removed to Da mascus township and shortly after t ie wife died. She was interred by the township and "New't," after the funeral, took the children and migrated toFIatrock, Seneca Co., where he secured a call on a small circuit. He held the position but a short lime, and the child ren wtre again subjected to great want. A farmer near that place took one to raise, while the other two wero nlaoed in the Flat. rook Evangelical Children's Home. . As they rightfully belong to Henry county, on notification of their whereabouts and condition, our infirmary directors went to Flatrock Monday but as one of the children was very sickly, they were not bronght to the poor farm. The directors, instead, made arrangements to pay their board at the Home for an indefinite time. Where the father is, is not known, he hav- iug quit the country ; iter the children were taken in the Home. He Excepts. Moses Jackson takes exceptions to the ae- senion tha.t he was instrumental in detain ing Hardy and thus preventing his appear ance as witness at the Adams trial. The in formation was received by us through relia ble sou ice, and as Mr. Jackson knows that source, it would seem to a man np a tree that his plan of action is too tackle the fountain head and not us.

Jacob Hardy ia onr ferryman living at Texas and is a law abiding citizen in every particular, hence it is with haste and a hope that the wrong might be righted that we make the correction. It was Oeorge and not Jacob Hardy who was fined for oontemptof court. To the Front. Sub-school districts in Henry county are fast attaining a degree of excellence almost on a par with the city schools. The directors are being educated in regard to the real needs of a school, and the pupils are pot slow in realizing for what purpose the ''deestrict" school is maintained. The re sult is that where years ago existed only a desire to turn the teaoher out, now we see a thirst after knowledge and an abhorence of rebellion agaiDst the teachers will. Our system of schools are equal to those o'f any county in the State. Merry Sleigh Riders. S. M. Heneck, Wm. English Ernest Spenglor, Chas. Walters, John Laudnlini-un, John Reiser, Frank Flogaus and Matt, llul ser, Jr. with their wives, composed a merry sled load that drove out to Fred Veigle's in West Napoleon township, 8unday evening. Mr. nnd Mrs. Veigle proved excellent enter tainers, Rnd it was somewhat late before the party broke up for the homeward trip. As was before stated, the party was a mer ry one and the following philosophical little sianza will be understood by them though not by the casual readar. "The good old cow she crossed the road, Because she crossed the road, sir; And the rensou why she crossed the road. Was because she crossed the road, sir." X New Order. George H. Barritt, Deputy Great Com mander of the Knights of Maccabees aud J. Walter Bliss, of Lansing, Mich., are in the oity bent on establishing a lodge of that or der. The object of the order, is to unite fra ternally all white persons of sound bodily health and good moral character, who are sociallyacceptable, between 18 and 70 years of age, and to provide for endowment, sick, funeral, acoident, disability and old age ben efits to those between the ages of, 18 and 55 years, and to educate the members socially, morally and intellectually It has had a phenomenal growth and is wqrld renown. Both gentlemen are affable and good busi ness men, and will doubtless accomplish their object. . Birthday Anniversary, ,The chilaren of Henry .Snyder gave Mm a surprise last Monday, the28d inst. being the 60th anniversary of hisVbirthday, ' Mr. and Mrs. Snyder were taken wholly by surprise and knew nothingsof the planning of the ohildreu nntil tbejrj piled in upon them Monday morning, -at their. xeidenoe north of town, on the Adrian pike. They bringht their own provender,' whieh fnrntehed enough for the crowd and lots to spare. The day was pleasantly spent and when the time of departure came all felt it was good to have been there. Mother Shasteen acd Mother Myers Were present, the former be ing in her 80th year and the latter 83 years old. Also Fred. Spangler, olose to 80 j ears. In the assembly there were nine children of Mr. Snyders and eight grand child ren, and hosts of relatives and friends. Mr. S. has been a resident of this county since he was five years old, which makes him one of our oldest citizens. He was the recipient of an easy chair in rememoranoe of the occasion. Dumped. A large party of Napoleon K. P's, iuolud cluding several of our county offioers sledded it to McClnre Friday and attended a meeting of the MoClnre Lodge at which sev eral .degrees were oonferred. The visiting members were royally entertafned and started for home about the time the ever present cock was c'oing his thrioe job of oro.wing. In turning the oorner a mile north of the village, the driver showed his geometrical knowledge of distances by pre ferring thehypothenuae in place of the base and perpendicular. However bright on figures, he was no good in jumping ditches and the whole band of noble knights were dumped over a rail fence into a "north 40" and three feet of snow. No one was hurt and the party arrived in Napoleon in time to utilize the early morning train for Doud of Defiance School Supplies.

St. Louis, Jan. 24. A disastrous wreck occurred on the Clcvaland, Cin cinnati, Chicago and St. Louis railway at Alton Junction, Ma., Saturday, in which nearly a score of people lost their lives and over fifty injured, many of whom were burned, the train subse quently taking fire. The train was the southwestern limited, consisting of an engine and four coaches, from St. Louis bound east. The switch was open and the train crashed into another train con sisting'of seven tank cars which was standing on the siding. The dead and wounded were taken to Alton, where the latter were placed in a hospital. The loss to the railway company is es timated to be not less than $125,000. The blame for the terrible accident is laid on the switch-tender at Alton Junc tion, who fled during the excitement occasioned by his awful negligence. All the dead were burned to death by flaming oil. Dead. Up to 6 o'clock Sunday evening the list of dead was as follows: Webb Ross, engineer,' Mattoon, Ills. Hiram Cornelius. Iowa. Edward Miller, Alton Junction. Two unidentified men. William Shattuck, Upfcer Alton, Ills. Henry Pennine, Wann, Ills. Willie McCarthy, Alton. . .John Locke. Alton.

All but the first sis died of their in juries at the hospital at Alton, except Ott, W. H. Miller and Mantz, whose dead bodies were found near the wreck. " " 1 Injured Who Will Die.

Besides these, more than a score sus tained injuries of more or less serious nature, whose names could not be learned. Dreadful Scenes. The scenes in the wards occupied by the injured were heartrending. Lying on cots, wrapped and swathed in cotton and bandages until they almost lost semblance to human beings, and sur rounded by weeping relatives and sor rowing friends, they formed a picture mat Drougni tears to tne eves or even i the physicians, accustomed as they are to such sights. The moanings of the patients were piteous. Every few mo ments sorttb tortured soul writhing in agony would half arise from his couch, then fall back suffering more intense pain than before. Seeming to know by intuition when the physician was near them, they wonld beg piteously to be relieved of their pain, even asking to be killed. Only those thought to be fatally in jured were allowed to remain at the hospital. All the others were removed to their homes, or to the homes of friends throughout the city, that they might receive undivided attention of their friends. Many volunteers, too, were at the hospital, to administer to the wants of those there, and, if possi ble, lessen the pain of their last few hours on earth.
