CS That we are enabled to offer all styles of Goods in which we deal at less rates than
other dealers, is well known by thousands of people throughout this and adjoining counties who are numbered
among the rwrular patrons of our establishment; but In order to make it clear to those who reside at a distance and
are no aware of the reason why we can afford to sell goods at such low price, we would state that we are in a posi
tion to oo so from me following nets : t
first We have the lakgist Dry Goods Business in Eastern Ohio or Western Pennsylvania, outside
of Plaveland or Pittabnrvh. and therefore buv our rnndt In larger Quantities than any other dealer or dealers in this
or adjolniug counties.. In fact, our goods are all purchased in full packages, direct of the manufacturers or their
agents, in us avoiamg we prom paia oy smaller aeaieri w me .iisiro juuum. i uu m iuca . uuracu iu uui

acanainted with the fact as a highly colored statement, but it is, nevertheless, a downright sober, candid fact, which
an examination of our stock and prices will abundantly prove. ,,.',. . u . , ,r
SecnndYfe are firm believers in the doctrine that goods well bought are half sold ; and further,
that a person in order to bay well must give their entire time and talent to it. To this end we have la our employ a
gentleman of many years' experience in the Dry Goods trade, both at wholesale and retail, who acts as onr buyer,
and resides in New York all the year round. By virtue of being in the market dally, be is, as a natural consequence,
thnmnvhTv itnatMl and known fnt when and where and from whom bargains may be obtained, and it uot unfre-
niutnti htniuna thnt he la nhia ta nnmhase desirable eoods at a moment when the market is stagnant at a great dis
count from the actual cost of the same, thus enabling as to place them upon OUR counters at about 40 and some
times 60 per cent, less tuau the same identical styles are neia or even ownea Dy otner stores tnrougnout tnis section
of the State. We are, in fact, offering to-day several line of Goods at prices guaranteed to oe one nan or tne usual
rates demanded by other dealers for like quantities.
These are the mnciDal reasons why we can anoru io Ben our guuus at do uiuui te yuces uiau uuieia

They are plain. cojcmok-RK-se facts, which are well known and conceded by all those who have given the sub-
jecUbe least consideration ; but in order to more fully set forth the difference existing betwixt our prices and those
usually demanded for like qualities, we have made a partial list of tne stocs: mat we nave now on saie, ana to wnicn

THE CHRONICLE.
OBERLIN COLLEGE.
OBERLIN, May 13, '73.
Ed. CnROSiCLE : The spring
term of this college closed on Satur.
day last, and the summer term begins
to-morrow. The attendance last term
was quite large. I believe the lar
gest there has been in a spring term
since the war. There were nearly
nine hundred students in all tbe de
partments. If to this number you add about
two or three hundred telegraph and
commercial students you will per
ceive that we have several young
people in this place.
A great many prophesied after the
close of tbe war that Oberlin College
had accomplished its mission and
that it would never again enroll as
large a number of students as It had
in former times. . The accounts of the
present treasurer are far from con
firming the predictions of those
would be prophets.
The last week of the spring term
furnishes us with a fine literary feast
and last term was no exception to the
rule. Wednesday, May 7th, the Jun
ior class held its exhibition. The ex
erclses consisted of three English ora
tions, one Latin, one Greek, and
Discussion. The productions were
all fair. Ou Thursday, the Theolog
ical department gave one ot the best
exhibitions J have ever attended.
Friday, the Union Exhibition of the
College societies took place. For this
exercise each of three literary socle
ties chooses two of its best speakers.
Consequently at the exhibition which
is always well attended six of the'
best speakers in college appear. The
productions were fully up to the
standard, which is by no means a low
one
The Musical Union under the lead'
ership of Professor Rice has begun
preparation for commencement.
which begins July 81st and closes
Agust 6th. Those who have ever
heard the concerts given by this body
of.sttgers always look for a rare en-
tertaiBtnent when they take place.
I believe no other attraction draws
more people to Oberlin commence
ments than the music
Some two or three months ago J
saw a statement In your columns rel
stive to Mount Union College, which
I have been waiting for some one to
notice. As no one has seen fit to do
so allow me to say a word concerning
it, The statement I refer to was. if I
remember it rightly, that Mount Cn
ion College has more students in her
regular college classes than any other
college in Ohio, and that but two or
three colleges ia the United States
have a larger number. Now I have
no desire to disparage tbe great work
watch that college is doing, neither
have I the desire nor time to discuss
tbe relative values of different college
eourees,ibutltdoes seem that a great
many persons who read that article
might attach undue, prominence to
that institution. How is it that she
has so many regular college students?
Perhaps H may be owing to the cur
riculum. Any institution with
large number of students, can have
large advanced classes if the course
of study is made easy. All persons
who understand the requirements of
our American colleges know that to
enter a first class institution requires
a long and thorough preparation ir
the Latin and Greek languages. This
it is wbich keeps the' regular classes
email. Remove this barrier and num
bers will increase rapidly. By look'
ing at catalogues of Western Reserve
and Oberlin college it will be seen
that to be admitted to tbe Freshmen
class, requires nine terms (three
years) of Latin and six terms (two
years) of Greek. The eastern colleges
require still more. The Mount Un
ion catalogue puts the requirement
for admission in language, at one or
two terms of Latin and no Greek.
The standard for admission might be
noticed In another way. A few
years since a student who could not
entei the Freshmen class of this col
lege went to Mount Union and en
tered as a full fledged Sophomore.
When these facts are taken into con
sideration a reason may be discovered
for the large number of students in
regular college classes.
TRUMBULL.
CONGREGATIONAL CONFERENCE.
Editor Chronicle Trumbull
and Mahoning Congregational Con
ference, met in Bloom field, May 7th
and 8th, and was called to order by
Dea. Benj. Maltby, moderator for the
past year. It rained most of the time
during Conference, yet the sessions
were well attended. All the appoint
ed speakers were present, except one,
who had removed to Iowa. - Rev.
Wm. P. Edwards, of Mineral Ridge,
was received as a member of Confer
ence Rev. M. Hobart was dismissed
by letter on his request. Rev. J. H.
Jones was chosen Moderator, and
Rev. J. B. Davison, Register. Dea.
J. Hickok; Rev. J. H. Jones and
Dea. S. Fansler, Home Missionary
Committee -
The essays by Dea. C. J. Hickok
and Rev. R. Page, on "Duties of the
pastors and churches to young Chris
tians" were well prepared and heard
with interest. They emphasized the
duty of care and watchfulness over
tbe formation of the habits In all the
beginning of christian life especially
among children. -
On Wednesday eve an address was
made by Rev. C. N. Pond, in. refer
ence to the "strong obligation resting
the church to establish and sustain
prayer, money, dec, institutions
that furnish a positively christian
education." Addresses followed by
Rev. 6. Manning, on "The demand
for effort of christians to save our na
tion for Christ ' ; by Rev. J. C. Bur
nell, on "Assisting feeble churches to
build houses of worship ;" bv Rev.
H. Jones, on "Educating men for
the ministry." ',
Thursday forenoon was mostly oc
cupied by reports of the religious con
dition of the churches, and a discus
sion of their duties to one another.
Rev. C.N. Pond, gave an excellent
address on this subject, showing the
strong obligation on the churches to
co-operate in helping each other, es
pecially by attending conferences, by
as
in
le
visiting one another, and by helping
the weak with money, and by hold
ing fellowship meetings among them
whenever they should need it - It
was unanimously resolved "That we
are all willing, when practicable, to
assist a church In fellowship meet
ings, when the Church nr the Home
Missionary Committee desire us so to
do."
In the afternoon essays were read
by Dea. W. C. Savage and Rev. J. B.
Davison, on "Systematic Benevo
lence " These strongly urged a large
Increase of contributions to religious
purposes, that those contributions be
given by thorough system, that each
individual, young and old, give by
system, and if possible according to 1.
Cor. 16 : 2. "on the first day ofeveiy
week ," that it be done as an act of re
ligious worship, and that all be urged
to acknowledge Christ's claim to a
definite proportion of their income,
in all ordinary case to be at least one
tenth. Then followed an earnest
discussion of the subject. Rev- J. C.
Burnell gave an interesting account
of tha "Revenue system" recently
adopted by the-church in West Far
mington, by which they intend to
raise all the money needed for sup
port of the minister and other church
work, and for benevolent purposes.
Each man, woman and child deposi
ting such sum as they see fit each
Saobath, in a box in the vestibule.
The discussion was postponed until
evening, and Conference united in
celebrating the Lord's supper, Rev.
John Holway and S. Manning ad
ministering the sacrament, assisted
by Deas. Benj. Maltby and C. J.
Hickok. In the evening the above
discussion was continued, and the
following resolutions were adopted
unanimously.
"Whereas : We have long thought
that giving to replenish tbe Lord's
treasury should be systematized, and
now believe that weekly giving for
religious purposes is in accordance
with tbe teachings of the New Testa
ment, and will be found both con
venient and profitable ; therefore,
Retolvtd. That we, ministers and
delegates of Trumbull and Mahoning

do warmly recommend to the several
churches within our bounds, the
practice of regular weekly offerings
for the support of the gospel among

Resolved, That we would urge all
to consider the propriety or recoeol
zing God's especial claim to one-tenth

DIVIDE ET IMPERA!
DIVIDE ET IMPERA! How Does a Light Engine Draw a
Heavy Train!
PY PROF. J. D. BUTLER.
Tbe first locomotive was patented
twenty years ago. - Driving only one
ear. if litthtiv loaded It did very wen
but when the load it drew was beavl
er than its own weight, lis wheels
would not bite that is, they would
turn ronud and round without ad
vancing. Hence a cow-catoner was
needed behind to guard against cattle
runninir into it in tbe rear. It seem
ed at first Impossible to make a less
weitrht move atrreateronan upgrade;
and. for 27 years alterward, no one
invented an engine aoie to uraw
three times its own weight. At the
foresent day, however, locomotives
sweep along with trains more pon
derous by 15 or times man tney
are themselves. One means of gain'
ing this vast increase of power for
the locomotive, was by dividing tne
load. It was found, that an engine
nowerlesa to stir five times its weight
Otjreignt Wuen couveutiateu iu uuc
car, could readily draw it when dis
tributed in a dozen cars loosely shack
led together. It was heavier tnan
each ainsrle oar : and It had overcome
the inerua of eacn one, a moment Be
fore it encountered the inertia or an'
other. It was thus more than a match
for each car taken singly : and, pal
ling them successively, it drew after
it a train as long as a comet, and the
farther it ran the more strength It had
to run further. Here was the story
of little David over again. Ordinari
ly the stripling's weight, as ne tola
Goliath, was one hundred and twen
ty, but whenever ne got maa ne
welched a ton. Moreover, the en
gine forced tbe momentum acquired
bv everv car It naa Btarteu, to aweu
its own potency in overcoming tbe
resistance of all that remained eull
motionless.
This railroad achievement (ma
king a light engine draw a heavy
train), if not so common would seem
miraculous: ana it is analogous to an
expedient for securing a farm which
equally simple and equally efilca
cious. It is this : 'Divide your pay

END AND FAILURE OF THE
GREAT ARCTIC EXPEDITION.
Death of the heroic Hall.
On the 8th of October, 1871, in lati
tude 81 38', longitude 61s 44', Captain
Hall died of apoplexy, and was bur
led on shore, where they erected a
wooden cross to mark his grave He
had recently returned from a north,
era sledge expeditioj, in which he
bad attained the latitude of Id'.
He seemed in his usual health, and
Lad called the crew into the cabin to
encourage them with hopes of future
rewards, and stimulate them to re
newed exertion, when he was sudden
ly stricken down and expired, to the
great grief of those around, to whom
he had endeared himself by his kind
ness and devotion.
ADVENTURES OF THE SURVIVORS.
In September, 1S71, the Polaris en
tered winter quarters, and left August
12, 1872. The ice was very heavy, and
set in a southern direction. She was
forced south, and so continued drift
ing till Captain Tyson and party were
driven from her.
The sledge party crossed Kane's Po
lar Sea, which they pronounced to be
a strait about fifteen miles wide.
There was an appearance of open wa
ter to the north. - The rescued party
suffered very muck . during their
dreary drift from hunger and cold.
For tne last two months they ate raw
seal and polar bear as they could get
it. When
MET BY THE TIGRESS,
they showed evident signs of their
great sufferings, but during tbe nine
days they have been ,on board they
have improved vastly, and are now in
fair health. The party is in charge of
the United States Consul, and arrived
at St. Johns on Monday.
STATEMENT OF CAPTAIN TYSON.
On the 24th of August, 1871, we left
Tessinsack and went through Smith's
Sound. We succeeded in getting as
far north as latitude 82s 16', when we
returned and wintered at Polaris Bay,
latitude 81 38', longitude 61 44'. We
were frozen up until the 5th of Sent
ember. On tha 10th of October Cap
tain nail surtea on a sieaire tourney
north, and returned on the 24th, when
he was taken sick, and died on the 8th
of November. He was buried on the
11th. The attack that carried him off
was said to be apoplexy. We passed
the winter at Polaris Bay. On the 8th
of June, 1872, we attempted to reach
the north with two boats. We hauled
our other boat on shore, and returned
overland on the 8th of July. We
started for home on the 12th of An
gust, and on the 15th were beset with
ice In latitude 80" 02'. We drifted
from there down to latitude 77 35',
wnen we encountered a neavy soutn
west gale, the ship being under heavy
pressure On tbe night of tbe 15th
we commenced landing provisions,

very badly at times. We continued
landing provisions for two or three
hours, when the pressure, ceased
went on board tbe Vessel and asked
the sailing master if the vessel was
making any more water tnan usuaL
He reported that she was not. I then
went to the pumps and ascertained
that she was not making any more
than she was doing all summer.
BREAKING OF THE ICE.
I went on the Ice again and shortly
after it began to crack, ana in a few
minutes afterwarda broke in many
pieces. The vessel broke from her
fastenings, and was soon
LOST TO SIGHT IN THE DARKNESS
AND STORM.
On the broken ice were most of our
provisions to sustain the party through
the winter, and seeing nothing of the
vessel, we attempted to reach the
shore. In hopes of finding natives to
assist us in llvlne tbrougn tne winter.
Getting about half way to the shore
with our heavily laden boats, our pro
gress became hard by the drifting ice,
and I was compelled to haul on the
ice again.
PROVISIONS SAVED.
At this time I succeeded in saving
fourteen cans of pemmican, eleven
and a half bags of bread, ten dozen one
and two pound can or meat and soup.
fourteen bams, one small bag of choc
olate, weighing twenty pounds, some
muak ox skins, a tew blanket, a num
ber of rifles and abundant ammuni
tion. In the morning, knowing that
I had -

tbe gale I endeavored to shoot as many
seals as possible, both for food, light
and fuel, but could only get three,
owing to bad weather having set in.
supposed the wind to be about sou'
west, Ou its clearing up I found my
self within about eight miles of what
supposed to be the east coast, and
about thirty or forty miles below the
ship. The ice being weak, I could
not transport boats ana provisions to
land uutil it grew stronger. While
here t discovered my otber boat,
bread, Ac, and saved alL The
ICE GREW FIRM.
I made another attempt to reach
the shore, carrying everything in the
boats, and dragging them on their
keel. The ice being exceedingly
rough we stove both boats. We suc
ceeded on the 1st of November in get
ting about
HALF WAY TO SHORE.
Night came on us and very stormy
weather. : in the morning tbe ice was
broken' and we were drilling south
ward verv fast. We saw no more land
for many days, bad weather continu
ing all through the month of Novem
ber. We built snow houses and made
ourselves as comfortable as w could.
We were ten white men, two Esqui
maux, two women and five children
in all. We succeeded in killing a few
seals, which furnished us with light
and fuel with which to warm our
scanty allowance of food through the
darkness of an Arctic winter. In the
latter part of February we lived prin
cipal! v upon birds, ana in marcn com
menced to catch seals. Through that
month we supported ourselves on
of
BEARS' AND SEALS' FLESH,
wasting neither skin nor entrails.
We collected enough food In this way

had we not been driven to sea by a
strong westerly sale In the latter part
March, our floe piece being then
reduced from five miles in circumfer
to about twenty yards iu diame
ter. We left tne piece on the 1st ol
April, and abandoned nearly all of
our meat, a large amount of ammuni
tion, clothing, skins and other arti
cles, taking a portion of the meat in
the boat, which we were obliged to
throw overboard on account of the
boats being so deeply laden. I re

we could not put the boat out, nei -
tber could we find seals for food, and
we were
REDUCED ALMOST TO STARVATION.
On the 21st of April we sighted a
polar bear. Every person was ordered
lie down and imitate the seal, while
the two Esauimaux secreted them
selves behind a piece of ice, enticlnn
the bear near enoush to us to kill
him. A few days after this we got
boat in the water and worked our
way we 4 and southwest, and contin
ued to work every opportunity to the
westward, in hopes of reaching the
Labrador coast and getting temporary
relief. We were :

now without boats, ha vino lost two in
trying to get north in the sprfngof.
A PROVIDENTIAL MEETING
The Tigress fell in with the party
in a dense fog, and providentially
struck the very floe on which they
were, otherwise they must have per
ished. They all seem tolerably well.
Captain Tyson complained of swelled
legs and feet, but nothing serious is
the matter with him. When they left
the Polaris all on board were in good
health. . . . ,
HOW THE POLARIS LEFT THEM.
In reference to the way In which
tha Polaris got away from the party
which was rescued from off the ice
berg. Captain Tyson states that he felt
little anxiety at first, thinking she
would soon come to their relief. " I
set my colors," he said, "as she
steamed down along the shore, but
tbe vessel was soon lost to sight ia tbe
bend of the land, and behind what I
took to be Northumberland Island.
The piece of ice I was on commenced
drifting southward as the wind hauled
to the northeast, opening a little bay
to the northeast of Northumberland
Island. I saw the vessel in tbe har
bor there; her sails were furled, no
smoke was issuing from her smoke
stack that I could see. 1 then attempt
ed to bring my boats across the floe in
an easterly direction,
HOPING TO FIND WATER,
and reach the shore. I succeeded in
dragging one boat across, took the
water and attempted to reach the
shore some distance below the vessel.
We were then drifting very fast, and
the gale was blowing fresh, with great
violence, from the northeast, and
snowing very fast and drifting. I was
driven back on the ice again and com
pelled to haul my boat out. Night
closed on me ana carried us to the
southwest. In tbe morning we were
about thirty miles southwest of where
the ship went in harbor. A heavy
sea was running, which broke up my
floe piece, separating us from six bags
of bread and one boat. I saw a vessel
under steam and canvas roundrog a
point to the northwest. Thinking
she would come to our relief I jrave
myself no extra anxiety, but soon w
were doomed to disappointment, and.
rrom that time until the Tigress
rescued us, we never got a glimpse of
tne roiaris." .......
SKETCH OF CAPTAIN HALL.
Captain Hall was an. old Arotle ex
plorer, but owed his distinction chief
ly to his search for tne remains or tbe
Sir John Franklin expedition. - The
absorbing theory of his life was the
existence or an open rriiar sea, wnicn
he felt it was perfectly possible to
reach by crossing its iee-bonnd mar'
gin on sledges. - Captain Hall wrote
and lectured a good deal on tneeuu-
ject of the North Pole, and; like ail
men imbued with singleness of pur
pose, he made bis way in tne long ran
to the attention or tne public ' lnaj-
ly Congress voted an appropriation of
Soo.ouo to nt out an expedition for tbe
object ot giving a practical test to the
theory or nan. ana amine tne pro
gress of science .and- civilization.
There was a great deal of interest felt
throughout the country in the enter
prise, and this became more evident
wnen congress, wnicn just tnen nap.
pened to be in a perslmonlous- meod,
appropriated liberal means . for Ha
equipment. A government vessel
set apart to be fitted up specially with
a view to Arctic navigation.--This
was the Polaris, formerly the Peri
winkle. She waa exceedingly stanch
and well fitted, and Captain Hall gave
his days and nights to superintending
her equipment. '
Captain nail was aoouc nve rest
eight Inches In height, with a com
pact, firmly knit frame, Indicative of
great vigor and strength, and weighed
probably about one huodredand nine
ty pounds. He had a large head, with
a profusion of thick, brown hair and
heavy brown beaid inclining to curL
His forehead was broad and massive,
with a full development of tbe tem
poral and coronal regions. : His eyes
were blue, and the whole expression
of the countenance firm, but very
agreeable, kind and pleasant. - Cap
tain Hall hailed from Cincinnati,
where he was once eneaged In the
newspaper business, publishing the.
Occasional, ana arterwaras tne uatta
Penny Press. In his earlier years he .
was a blacksmith, working at the
forge, and his robust development,
beyond question, was in some meas
ure attributable to the exercise of that
ardent occupation. He was in nowise
a scientific or highly educated man.
but had a remarkably practical mina.
th a great deal of force or character.
He had never studied the science of
navigation even, though he was,
through experience and aptitude, as
competent to navigate a ship or con
duct an overland exploring expedi
tion as any of the daring band of dis
coverers that bad endeavored to solve
the great Arctio problem. He sailed
northward in I860 in search of Sir
Johu Franklin, since which time his
name and fame have been the com

NEW EXEMPTIONS. THE STOCKING LOOM.
. A pretty little story tells us of the
invantiou of tbe stocking loom : Wil
liam Lee was a ray young student at
Oxford, Who. saw. among the Greek
letters ol bia .iUatf eniy ice engbt
eyes of theinn-keepej -'adaughter, and
heard in UM professor's tones hut the
cbok of her swiit knoung needles.
In despair n threw avay bia books,
hurried to hi mistress, aad with her
Ltbe pareon's . Vhn the, Oxford
dona neard of. the proceeding at the
rectory, they decided in grave council
that this crime, of marriage must be
made an exampi oi, and accordingly
thn-yeung .man. wa expelled.,- Dis
graced and dishonored, Le and Peggy
were eastout into the.worid with only
four knitting, needles , to, look to for
bread. But Peggy went merrily to

gleaming needle as if entranced.

Jones had worried.1 Smith with
conundrums very often, Aud now it
was Smith's -ruro.--,'Gue what I
last night?" said 8mith. : Jones
thought of various and sundry im
probable things,- and suggested the
making of a speech,' the tloing of a
kindness, thegett4ng himself into the
lockup, and finally gave up the ct
nundrutn in . despair.' "Well," said
Smith, in a triumphaat- tone, "I
slept", '. - '
