Read Me Through. In glancing at this column you may ta ke it to be only an--other pi Saur & Balsley's ad vertisements and not give it a fair reading. But you read much stuff that is more worth less than any of these adver tisements, and whatever you read is worth reading onlv to the extent it may benefit you. Now we have a few plain statements to make in refer ence to Saur & Balsley's Drug and Book House and its con tents, and if vou will read it through we know that it will not be the. last time and that it will benefit you very much, Now where in this section of the state is there a town the size of Napoleon which contains a larger or better drug and book store. Every thing in the drug and book line is kept and can be pro cured at all hours. We have or can procure any book that is ' published and at bottom prices. The wall paper department we want to call especial at tention to we have a complete stock and the very best pat terns. Window shades, pat ent fixtures, etc., always on hand and in endless variety and quality. Paints, oils and varnishes we take an unusual interest in We select only the best and can positively recommend every thing in this line to purchas- " ers, and not only recommend but guarantee it. Then there are brushes ! We have any kind you can call for and at surprising prices. In the line of medicines we have onlv the best and most reliable cough remedies blood purifiers, pills, tonics, cordials, etc.. Best perfumes always on ; hand. ..;'-.,-,: . ' f. Now we do not' wish to be partial or , to - dictate to any one", hut when,, you are in ne'ed of any goods do not stop at one ; house, but get prices from several houses and then you will have an opportunity of seeing who will sell you the best goods for the least money, and never pass Saur & . Bals ley's drug and .book store without calling in and seeing what you can do there. Many a dollar has the farmer saved in this way and in trading at this house. We do not say this from experience alone, but it is what hundreds of others say. A complete line, of school books, copy books and all school supplies are. constantly on hand, at the , same low prices as in other departments. Teachers' Institute, to be Held at .sapoieon, t en. -ni, wo, at 9 o'clock A. M. The Henry County Teachers' In stitute has a mission. It believes that the schools of the county can and ought to be as good as any in the state. It believes there is no way to improve the schools except by improving the teachers, and teachers' methods. The experience of the past empha sizes the fact that an institute right ly conducted is one of the most im portant factors in the elevation of the teacher and his profession. It has been said by the hoary-headed of the profession that the most worthv. energetic and progressive are always at these meetings, wheth er of the county, state or nation.

We have one farmer in this county who is worth as much (on the books) as all the banks of the county, vis.: Ave private banks and men supposed to be wortn from$10.000 to $200,000 are only worth from 50 to $4,000 on the books. How about the farm property? Land, houses, barns, stock, everything vis ible to the assessor over one hun dred farms in this county are each worth as much on the tax duplicate as two banks. Brother farmers, do you know .how well off you are? Go and examine the books of your county, and see for yourselves wno pays the tax. I have no doubt every other county in Ohio is about the same as this. Various are the meth ods of hiding property. One of the most common is to lend money and take the notes and mortgages in the name of "Jesse Jones," when no such person is known in the oountry; or lending for some aunt or friend, in some other states all of which is pure fiction.".

I CARD FROM JUDGE HOADLY He Gives His Reason for Aot Taking the Anncke Jans Case. Ex-Governor Geo. Hoadly has ad dressed the following letter to the Cincinnati Enquirer, under date of Feb. 3, on the Anneke Jans estate, a subject of personal interest to many readers of the Nohthwest: Not lone since some newspaper or newspapers in Ohio, without intend ing of course, to do me a disservice, published that I had accepted a re tainer and had undertaken the serv ice of recovering the "Anneke Jans estate" in New York. This publica tion (I do not know how extensive it has been) has brought upon me a multitude of letters, to which I am tired of responding. I have undertaken no sucn task. nor do I believe it practicable to re cover what is called the "Anneke Jans estate" now, if it ever were. In 1847 the whole subject was ex amined at great length by Vice Chan- color Lewis xl. sanrora (.in an old case then pending, of Bocardus vs. Trinity Church), who decided against the claim of the Anneke Jans (see U Sanford's Chancery Reports, (633). No appeal was ever taken, nor, in my opinion, is it possime to renew successfully any such case now. At any rate, I consider my time too valuable to be wasted in any such Quixotic undertaking.

The Deshler Flag says:- The work men at the Bergman well have had many serious drawbacks since they began work, and ' the progress has been slow, but at the Jhour of going to press we learn that the drillers pumped the well all night Wednes day night and it constantly tilled a three-inch pipe, making the well good for twenty five or thirty barrels a day.

I LIMA NORTHERN COMPLET ED TO MALINTA YESTER DAY NOON. After a Rest of Thirty Days the Road Will be Rushed to Adrian. W. B. Strange Jr. & Co. have com pieted the grading, bridging and track laying to Malinta, the track having been completed to that point at 12 o'clock Tuesday. There is about five miles of grading done be tween Malinta and Napoleon, but on account of frost, no grading will be done in the next thirty days, after which work will be again resumed and the completion of the line rushed to Adrian, and probably be com pleted to that piont in sixty days. The grading between Napoleon and Adrian, the ties, rails and bridges to go over the Maumee river at Napo leon have all been contracted. The work beyond Napoleon is of a light character. W. B. Strange Jr., has been in Lima the past five days and has disbursed in that time about $50,000 along the line in payment of labor and other indebtedness. The Lima Northern by reason of prompt payment of all bills has begun to meet with publio favor- already. Mr. Strange left last night for) New York. The Lima Northern as it now stands is forty-three miles long and was constructed in thirty4threedays. This beats the record for railroad building, and a few boquets thrown at the officials in charge of the road, would not be honoring them too highly. It is certainly a wonderful piece af work, and the railroad boys and the superiors are to be con gratulated. Lima Iteptiblican, Jan. mn. NEW doi m. PROPOSITION TO APPLY IT TO TOBAC- CO SELLERS. Man From Richland County Has The Bill in Preparation--It "Will Make Music. ' Special Telegram to the Blade. Columbus, O., Feb. 7. Represen tative McBride, of Richland county, has in preparation a bill that would prove a big revenue raiser if it should become a law. It is one, however, that will meet with violent opposi tion from many sources, and its course will be a rough one. This bill is to levy a tax on all tobacco deal ers on the same principle as the pres ent Dow law covering the sale of in toxicating liquors. This bill will tax each retail dealer $10 annually, and each wholesaler $25. It also pro vides that four-tenths of the amount collected shall go to the county to be used for local purposes designated in the bill, and the remaining six-tenths shall go to the state fund, to be called the building fund, which shall be used soley for the erection, main tenance and reconstruction of the public buildings belonging to the state. The framers of the bill estimate that there are not less than 52,000 places in the state where tobacco is retained. This includes the 12,000 or 13,000 saloons in the state, in the most of which tobacco is sold, also the drug stores, fruit stands, news dealers and the regular retail deal ers. The plan is to catch every one of these dealers. There are also about 300 wholesale dealers. It is expected that the total amount that would be raised by means of this bill would be in the neighbor hood of $600,000. Finger Cut Off.

The windows of the book and variety stores are flaming masses of the at trooities, and gaping crowds of youngsters congregate to feast their eyes and select the ones they would buy had they the necessary pennies. The old favorites are retained, and the vices of the masher, the old maid, the gossip and their familiar com panions are again exploited in dog gerel verse. But this year the new woman has offered an inspiration, and the bloomer girl, the mannish girl, the bicycle girl and the henpeck ed husband in skirts are added to the list.

A bit of raw onion will remove flv specks from gilding without injury o me guuing. A rough flatiron may be made smooth by rubbiag it when warm over a teaspoonful of Bait. The white spots on a varnished sur face will disappear if a hot flatiron is held oyer them for a second. Hard soap is better than grease to quiet creaking doors or to make un willing bureau drawers submissive. Bread and cake bowls or any dish es in which flour and eggs have been used are most easily cleaned if placed in cold water after using. If cake is to be baked in sheets and not to be iced, sprinkle powdered sugar over it before putting it into the oven. This will give a smooth sugary crust. Silk fabric that is to be laid away should not be folded in white paper, lest the lime used in the bleaching it may have an injurious effect upon the color of the sik.
