FRAGMENTS OF THE EARLY HISTORY OF OHIO COUNTY. nr it. D. TAVI.OR. CHAPTER XXII. We hne no tradition of our hnviug anv n-giilarlv-liroil M. DV. in the eiirly reltlcturnt of the country, nnd the peo ple hcemed to have but little use for thrui ; in fact nature, when let alone, will (re.uently perform as many cures as the doctors. Every neighborhood, how ever, had its old lady or gentleman who was -always ready, without fie or reward. to prescribe the proper couiound of roots nnd barks for every diecaee. Wild ipecac ttn was the principal emetic, and bite walnut and May apple pills were the principal rathartic of the times. The first one dubbed doctor, now recol lected, wan n Dutch root doctor, called Houseman. His I.ellU, in which he roiiiounded his medicines, whs as great a medley as the boiling cauldron of (he witches of Macbeth. Like all humbug. he erforined wonders lor awhile. Old John Uarne. a noted character in his day, need to tell the following r-tory of the doctor practice in his family : Mrs. Harnes, like Sarah of old, was atllictcd with slerilitv. The doctor undertook her i-as-c, and was several days in compound ing a large jug of medicine, and was ulnnil to leave when a neighbor called in mid rro,uetcd some medicine for his sick hild, which, afl:r describing Us symp toms, the doctor pronounced worms, and turning to Mrs. Barnes, reijiiesteil the loan of a bottle ol her medicine to cure the sick' child. This so displeased Big lohunv, as he was usually called, that be piiid the bill, dibchnrged the doctor. and bruke the jug Dr. Charles McCreery rcttlcd in Hart. ford as early, erhaps, as 1807 or 1S0S lie was n young man of line personal ar .. . .,,,.. eariiuce, ol t-oemi ami convivial nauus. volatile in his manners, and eccentric and frctpicntly original in his ideas mid notions of matters and things. He, for a number ofyears, enjoyed a very high reputation, not only as a physician but lor his surgical skjll, having informed sereral bold ami (hen cotiMdered hazard ous operations, many years ahead of the surgical ecicncc of the times. It will now be thought incredible to slate tha1 his practice extended into Muhlenberg, McLean, Daviess and parts ol Brrcken ridge, Grayson and Butler counties. What reflects the highest honor on his memory was dir. fact that he never neg lected poor patients, but visited them as readily as he did the rich. If he had a lazy, able-bodied patient, the first time he met him after he was well, he would, good hiimoredly, curse him, and tell him if he did not go to work and ay him he might die the next time he took sick : but lie was never known to carry out his threat He was remarkably excitable and sympathetic in his feelings. During the war of 1812, a day of thanksgiving was apKinted, and old Thomas Taylor was requested to preach on the occasion. His usual manner was to talk "right on" in plain, cimple style, preaching practical piety and morality ; lashing with unsparing hnnd the fashions, follies and vices of the day. But this day he was said lo have risen to the sublime of patriotic eloquence. During the opening prayer McCreery had become so excited that he started to leave the house, and blubbering liken whipped child, was met by n friend at the door, and asked what was the matter, and replied: "Why, (using a big oalh) if I ever heard such a praver in all my life." The following incident he was heard to relate as occurring in his early practice: He was called to see an old lady, swollen to a Most enormous size with dropsy. It was imssible to afford her any imme diate relief, or even prolong her life for a short period, except only by tapping and drawing off the immense accumnla lion of water. This he undertook with fear and trembling. The old lady and all her friends and relatives seemed to look to a fatal termination, and tears and sobs were reen and heard all over the room. The young doctor was fast giving away lo the same feelings, and losing his nerve nnd preeonoe of mind, something must be done to change the current of thought and feeling. At this moment a lady approached to remove the vessel which was partly full of the dropsical fluid. Now was the doctor chance to relieve his feelings and perpetrate- a joke. "Don't throw it away," said lie. "It will make the best of vinegar." lie gained lis poiut. The muttered cursts of the THE HARTFORD HERALD. " COMB, THE HERALD OF A XOISY WOULD, THE XEWS OF ALL XATIOXS LVMHEMSG AT MY HACK." HARTFOBD, men, the disgusted, horrified looks of the women, restored hia usual cheerful feel. ings, and lie perlormed his duty with a steady hand. He was remarkably fond of conversing on medical science, and nlso of practical joke, but like mot jokers did not like to bo the subject of one. The late Judge Calhoon was, in his young days, a most inveterate joker. It happened that the two were riding along the road together; tie doctor was dis canting on the want of more general knowledge in the community of the prin ciples of surgery and medicine, and stated by way of illustration, that a man might lie thrown from a horse and his neck dislocated only and not broken, and the presence of an expert, skillful man might save his life. Almost at this mo ment the doctor's horse threw him full length in the road. Calhoon, who was then young, athletic and active, dis mounted, seized the doctor by the hair of the head before he had time to rise, placed his feet upon his shoulders, and kept pulling with all his strength, until the doctor fairly roared with pain, and then tenderly helped him to his feet, and congratulated him on saving his life. The doctor slow ly and grumlv remounted, nnd rode along for some time, whilst Calhoon 'was convulsed with laughter to which he dared not g:ve vcut; then suddenly checking his horte, nnd mixing in hie f-tirrups, with uplifted hands he exclaimed: ".John Calhoon, if you erer tell any one of this atlair, may I he (using a tremendous oath) if I don't make it a perronul mutter with you !" Of course Calhoon never could have kept so good a joke to himself, but no on ever dared to mention it to the old doctor. Dr. McCreery died, in middle age, about 18'i.r or lSLMi. He had been to Shclbyville to bring home his eldest daughter from Mrs. Teris' school, and was taken rick and died at a house on the road between Shephcrdsvillc nnd Key's ferry, on Salt river. His remains were alterwnrds brought to his old home for burial. His wife, who was the daughter of Joshua Crow, lived many yars a citizen of Hartford, where she was universally loved and esteemed for her many good qualities, and having raised a I urge family of children, followed them to St Louis, nnd several years ago her remains were brought lo Hnrt- ford nnd deKited by those of her hus band. Dr. Benjamin' .Smith removed to Hart ford about the year 1822, from Shelby. ville, Ky. He was n high toned, hospi table gentlenin, of ba-lilul. retiring modesty. He was looked tioii as a safe and reliable physician, always retaining his practice in n family when once employed, nnd enjoxed the confidence and esteem of many friends nnd acquaintances. He died during the summer of 1S-10. Dr. Samuel O. Peyton came to Ohio county when but n boy, was n student of Dr. McCreery, and graduated nt Lexing ton, nnd commenced the practice of med icine when quite toting, and roon grew into eminence ns a practicing physician. His practice for many years was IbImj- rious ami lucrative. He also turned his attention to farming, ami was not only a successful, hut model farmer. 1'osscssing nil the hospitality and so cial qualities of the true Kentuckian pleasant manners and fluency of speech he was soon drawn into the arena of pol itics, and became the Democratic leader of this section of the country. With a large Whig majority in the county, he was first elected to the .State Legislature, and several times afterwards was elected to Congress. He was an acute nnd able dehator on the stump, and no man per haps in his district could mingle more successfully with the crowd, or enlist more warm and devoted friends in his cause, lie uirtl in Jauuarr, IniO, and was followed to the grave by ninny friends, both rich and poor, for he was the poor man's friend. However painful Ihe duty, however hopeless the task to warn the rising gen eration of the danger, yet, with the hope that one in n thousand may take heed we'feel bound to record the fact that all three of these useful and honorable men; from the impulses of their free and gen erous natures, contracted habits of In temperance that destroyed their useful ness nnd shortened their days. Oh! that the Angel of Mercy could forever blot out (he evil, and no longer suffer it to hang like n funeral pall over the-fathers, mothers, wives and children of our land, darkening, their hopes; of earth and heaven! lO UK CONTI.NUHO. lliMlnrwi Revlrnl.

We have receiyed the following bw'ef, but exceedingly explicit nnd pointed com muiiication from a source which we have every reaion to credit: To the Kditor cf the Courier-Journal. Mt. Washixutox, Kv.Sept.2, 1877. I see by a cable telegram in the Courier Journal that Omian Pasha, of the Turk ish army, is believed lo be ueneral Ba zaiue, late n Marshal of the French army. This is n mistnke. I happen lo know very well who O-unan l aslin is, as I have corresponded with Inni lor several vcars. and hnve received letters from him since he has been given command of n division of toe lurkieh army. (Jsman Paslia is an American, a native ol Haw kins countv. Tenn. His name is R. Clay Craw font He was Colonel of a f . 1 I. regiment 01 nriniery miring me inie war between the States, lie nlterwards en tered the service of th Liberal Govern ment of Mexico, and was made a Ueneral of division. He created considerable stir by the capture of Bagdad, Mexico, passing his forces over the Rio Grande from the Texas shore. He finally quar relled with Jaurcz, the Mexican Presi dent, and returned to the United States with a large fortune. He resided for sev eral rears at a beautiful country seat un the Delaware, nenr Philadelphia. His restless disposition caused him to seek ex citement, and he entered the service of the Khedive ofEypt; was soon nfler transferred to (he service of the aiillnn, and commanded the Turkish army nt Plevna, L B. WicKi.irrK. Our correspondent writes with the di rectness and relevancy of personal knowU edge, nnd yet he seems ignorant of some of the antecedents of the hero of hia sketch. Crawford is, or was, a really ex traordinary rson. All that his brief liogrnpher says in the above communi cation is true. Crawford was a Uilonel of Artillery in the wnr; he did go to Mexico, where he rose quickly to the rank of Genera! of division; he quarrell ed with Juarez on account of th Bagdad affair, which was really nothing more nor less than a freebooting cxiedition; on the proceeds of this and other plundering operations, he appeared in Wall street. where he struck n streak of luck, making a minion oi uonars in six or rigui months ; he bought the magnificent Diddle estate just out of Philadelphia, lived in great splendor and ostentation for a few years, having married a Xew York lady, and, about 1870, disappeared, He has not tieen heard of since. He desert ed his wife, to whom the letter of our correspondent will come ns the first news of a long-lost husband in seven years. All this is corroborative testimony ns to Ihe truth ol the statement that Ostnan Pasha and Clay Crawford are one nnd the snme person. If that be the case, the history of so interesting n chnraiter cannot fail to be of value to the public. In anv event, the revival ol the nam of the reckless nnd eccentric East Tenne. seean makes some reference to his singu larly adventurous life appropriate. HIS FIRST AITIAKAMt'll. One of the last acts of Andrew John son as a member of Congress from the First district of Tennessee was to appoint R. Clay Crawford, of Hawkins county, a Cadet to West Point. That was in th early part of 1853 The lad was turned of seventeen, of respectable parentage. He had had considerable education for the regioc and period, and was able to take a good position nnd to make a rapid progress at the military academy. But what he gained in learning he lost in con duct. He was a restless, excitable creat ure, perpetually involving himself and others in trouble, and never content with established law. The result was inevita blc, though longer delayed than tcould have been expected. He was expelled, and left West Point with a character for intelligence' nnd ambition, but also for recklessness, which attended hiuvin after life. Instead of going quietly to his home in Hawkins county. East Tennessee, he had n mind for seeing the world nnd a taste for adventure. His unruly spirit would not brook the monotony of the hills and hollows, and his wounded pride rebelled nt the thought of reappearing among his old relatives nnd friends with the disgrace of expulsion upon him. So, having some money to go on, he stopped in New York, and tried life in the metropolis for awhile on his own account. AX UXBXrECTKD MISUAf. Crawford's money soon gave out, and he was thrown upon his wits. These, however, were both self-confident ami acute. He had many n wrestle with fortune, but, young and inexperienced as he was, he always fell upon his feet. He would have escaped to this day had he not become entangled in an affair. Of course it was an affair of the heart In such circumstances as he found himself it is ever the case that a woman comes upon the r,cenc. Thus it was that he was forced of necessity to look home' ward. A:compatiied by his paramour, he had got as far as Wytheville, in Vir ginia, on his way back to Tennessee, when a fatal mishap befell him. They had put up for the night at the inn of the town. There happened lobe lodged there at the same time a rich old cattle dealer, just returned from Alabama. He was loaded down with money. The temptation was too great for poor Crawford He noted all the points of the case, wailed for his victim to retire,, nnd, when all was still and dark, stole softly to the room of the cattl dealer. The old man was sound nsleep, nnd the young ma rauder got away with the swag, which had been carefully deposited under the owner's pillow. Abotit midnight the sleeper awoke nnd very naturally felt to find whether his treasure was safe. It was gone. He hnppened to be a cool, keen, resolute mau. He had rot iced the wild young fellow with the pretty young woman, had observed the attention they had paid him, and immediately his sus picions fell upon them. He got quietly KENTUCKY, SEPT. 12, 1877. out of bed, nnd, without disturbing any one, sought the room of the landlord, to whom he communicated Ine circuni stances of the robbery and his belief thereon. The landlord shared his opin ion. They procured n light and a weap on. Then they went together to the apartment of the adventurous stranger. Instead of knocking, us they might hnve done, considering (hat there was a lady as well ai n gentleman within, they sud denly turned the lolt, and, the door be ing unlocked, they walked in. A night indeed met their astouishid gazed. There, seated upon the floor, was our ex-cadet and his mistress, the candle between them, busily engaged in counting the cattle-dealer's money. The arrest was made at once. 1 he trial and conviction speed ily followed, and, in a few weeks, Craw ford found himself in the State Prison of Virginia at Richmond. AXOTIIHB TURK OF III! WIIKEL. Poor Clay Crawford I gay, ardent, ns piring! The occupant of a felon's cell; It was hard but fair; and he languished there many :i weary rtionth and year, ex piating his first attempt at highway rob bery. But there is an end to all things. The war came on. Many reports exist ns to how Crawford got out of prison. Some say he escaped. Others say he made terms with the Confederate author ities. It is moat likely thai ins tune ex pired. At all events he found himself a free man again. Some time in 1802, after the occupation of N'nshville by the Union forces, he turned up in the capital of his native State. His old friend Andrew Johson wes Military Governor. East Teuticsseans nrc proverbially clannish. Where the clan is concerned they are not squeamish. The future President wns nl- wnys n partisan as well ns a clnnman. He rarely forgot or went back upon a re tainrr. The times were out ot joint. After all, Clay Crawford had been im prisoned by the hated Virginians, and that was n recommendation in the eyes of the excited and excitable Union lead er. So, once more Andrew Johnson be came Clay Crawford's patron and backer. He gave him odd jobs of detective work. Then he helped him to ft commission. Finally, he got him the command of a regiment of artillery. There nre many curious stories of the exploits of the young adventurer in connection with the nrmy of the Cumberland. One of the most credited is that on a certain occa sion he sold some two hundred of his command ton substitute broker, who ap peared with a large sum of money with iu his military jurisdiction, nnd, having obtained the money, caused Ihe luckless violator of the law to bo tried as a spy by a drum-head court-martial, and, proved guilty of course, to be shot at daylight. Be this as it may, he acquired money and lost repute, so that, in 1805, he found it safe to resign nnd go lo Mexico, where hi took service with Juarez, contriving to recommend himself for gallantry and capacity, nnd rising rapidly from a Colo nel of Artillery to be a General of Di vision. ADTgXTl'RRS IX MEXICO. Our correspondent refers to the Bag dad affair. It was the sensation of the day. The papers were full of it. Al though a freel-ooting exploit, there wns a Robin Hood dash about it that pleased the public taste, and, when Crawford was forced out of the Mexican service, it made him quite a lion on the frontier. It is said that he wns officer of the day on the occasion when Maximilian was shot. It is certain that he was possessed of many trophies of the dead Emperor when he came East, which he did in 18G7, just after the collapse of the empire. He had not wasted his substance. On the contrary, he had mlJed to it. The 86 ck of Bagdad, it was believed at the time, had yielded handsomely, and it was not the only expedition which he had made. When he made his appearance in Wash ington he was full-handed. 1ICCOMKS A KIXU IX WAI.t. STREET. His old friend Andrew Johnson was President, and would doubtless have helped him if he had required it. But he did not. He had tried his hand as a robber, raider and soldier, and had a mind for speculation on a larger scale. He would become a King of Finance. He would emulate the rising glory of Fisk. He would enter Wall street He did so, nnd won. He struck a streak. One lucky operation after another multi plied his wealth, until he found himself master of a lordly million. He fell in love again, married n beautitul lady liv ing on the Hudson, bought a great estate near Philadelphia, and began a career of luxury and pleasure. Our correspondent is quite right in his reference. Crawford did certainly live like an 'Oriental. But he was not satisfied. All of a sudden, about three years later, he grew moody, restless, and on 'one fine morning he turned up missing; gono no one knew how; no one knew where. But, assur edly, he Trent, anil from that day to I his has not been heard of by any of his old companions in any of his old haunts. Tilt MYSTERY CI.EACED. Our correspondent clears up this mys tery. He says positively that he fatum that Clay Crawford went to Egypt, tluil he enlisted in the service of the-KJiedive, that he succeeded so well that he was promoted nnd transferred to the service of the Sublime Porte, nnd (bathe is no other than the hero of Plevna. It is very like. Nothing could be more character istic. Crawford never lacked audacity or courage, a mild imagination, an ad venturous spirit and a child-like faith in his destiny. A tall, rather handsome man, with light brown hair, and eyes of a peeuliar gray, be would arrest attention anywhere. Clad in the brilliant uniform of a Field Marshal of the Turkish army. with a jeweled coif upon his brow and a flashing scimitar by his side, mounted upon an Arabian charger, he wonld W very distinguished in appearance. Am) thus it is that Osnian Pasha is not ihe disgraced Bszaine, but a reckless and re markable advrnturer, Clay Crawford hy name, from Hawkins county, Tennessee. Stranger things have happened, but this is strange enough. The Musi fur thr Tlmrn. Eliiahethtowa news. The diligent, sober, economical and virtuous man is the man for the limes. This is not an age for day-dreaming nor a time for play. Life in the present age calls for a full development of all the bet impulses and energy of which man is capable, and demands that he shall strive to be both useful and honorable. While we have many good examples in our midst, we need more. Let us hare among all classes more industry, more thrift, more honest effort, and there will be less of failure, and lrss complaint of hard timee. Competition crowds out the laggards. While these fail the in dustrious and prudent still thrive. There is no floating into easy places nowaday. There is no drifting into wealth nnd hon ors. All must work their way. There 'a no room for the idler, the rogue or the loafer in the fields of labor, nor in the marts of trade, nor in the ranks of pro fessions. While the lazy workman lacks a job, willing workmen nre not Mir. La bor is honorable, health-giving and prof itable. Let us all work, with head or hands. Let honesty, temperance, indus try and economy be our motto, and" we shall in a measure prosper. It is evi dent to the most casual observer that the causes of financial embarrassment arc not altogether political. While we are satisfied that the protective tariff, and the resumption nct.and gold-bearing bonds and the demonetization of silver, and the waste of the public domain, and the squandering of therpublic funds, and other radical evils have had a most de pressing influence upon the prosperity of the American people, and have taught us lessons in governmental policy that we are not likely to forget; we are, never theless, inclined to believe that we have three great evils among us that have pre vailed to an alarming extent, and been n great cause of financial distress in the laud. Intemperance, extravagance and idleness, have led to .worse vices and have afflicted our people as grievously as any political evils, and have brought prosperity to beggary many times. There are other evils in the land affecting the virtue and happiness of our people which we stand ready to condemn, hut confine ourself for the present to this simple proKsition, which embraces a great deal the diligent, sober, economical and virtuous man is the man for the times.

Burlington Free Press: There was once a noble youth who on being urged to take wine at the table of a famous statesman in Washington, had the moral courage to refuse. He was a poor young man, just beginning the struggle of life. He brought letters to the great statesman, who kindly invited hnn home to dinner. "Not taka a glass of wine?'' said the great statesman, in wonderment and sur prise "Not one single glass of wine?" eehoed the statesman's beautiful and fascinating wife, as she arose, gloss in hand, and with a grace that would have charmed an anchorite, endeavored to press it up on him. "Ko," replied the heroic youth, reso lutely, gently repelling the proffered glass. What a picture of moral grandeur was that ! A poor, friendless youth, refusing wine nt the table of a wealthy and fa nous statesman, even though proffered bv the fair hands of n beautiful lady. Despiie not your mother when she is "M. Ago may wear and waste a mother's beauty, strength, reuses and estate, but her relation ns mother is as the sun when it goes forth in its might, for it is always m the meridian and knoweth no evening. The perron may bo crcy-hnired, but motherly relation is ever in its bloom. It may be nutuinn, yea, winter; but with the mother, ns mother, it's always spring. Alas ! how little do wo appreciate a mothor's tenderness while living! How needless nre wc in youth of nil Tier anx ieties nnd kindness! but when she i dead and gone when the cares and the coldness of the world comes withering to otlr heart then it is that we think of tho mother vre have lost.

The Forlnvfllfy, nn English periodi cal, contains an article in the April number from, Dr. Burrfey Yeo, in which he attempts to prove that alcu- 11? t tl l . IM , hoi is vaiuaoie as n iouu. a ne doctor quotes a statement to the cflect that the Cam bridge crew, when training. take dailv "a moderate amount of (nl- t l- xV.? l . i r . cuiionc; sitmuiani. in commenting on this statement, the astute (?) doctor says: "it would seem, therefore, to be capable of demonstration that the daily cvnsnmptioa of a moderate amount of alcoholic beverage rs consistent with the most perfect ilevelonmeat of mus cular cnersry." But thw wise (?) de- ciple of Esculnpius draws his conclu sions too liastily. If the Cambridge men had given a fair trial to training, both with nnd without stimulants, and had found themselves worse with the latter, then Dr. Yeo might hava beeB justified in making the declaration quoted; hut there is no proof that the Cambridge men have ever so tested the matter. Y e have many cases to the point, ahowincr that abstinence from all ulcoholic drinks U the surer way to the preservation oi health and the development of the' muscular powers. We will give a few: "A num ber of British officers were taken pris oners by the Mohammedons, in Jutlea. nnd thrown into prison where they were allowed nothing but rice and water. .Many of them went into the dungeons wiin diseased livers and other com plaints; when released after several years confinement they were in per fect health: and on returning to the army they found themselves high in rank by tbc death of their superiors who had lived freely and drank wine and spirits." "During the four years which Alexander oelkirs speut upon the dreary island of Juan Fernandez, he drank nothing but water; he had been there but a short time, when he increased in strength amazingly, being three times as strong as he ever had been before. But, when taken on board a vessel sailing for England, he began to drink beer nnd other fer mented liquors. After this, his strength gradually declined, and in one month he was no stronger than any other man. r rj ir. ' Ill 1873. Prof. Monroe, of England, stated that he had under his cliarge two societies of operatives, one com posed of total abstainers, the other of those who use spirituous or fermented liquors. In the former, the average tune or sickness in year to each mem ber is one nnd three-quarter days; in the latter it is eleven and seven-eighth days. The death-rate in the former is two-fifths of one oer cent., in the latter one and one-half per cent., or assum ing the membership of each society to be one thousand, there are lour deaths in the .former to fifteen in the latter." Many other similar examples could easily be given, but these nrc enough to destroy Vr. leos theory, and so we lay down our pen. Keep IIhnj. It is the idle men who mutiny at sea, and there is a world of philosophy in realizing the tact. We remember an old Cape Cod sea-captain who, when there was nothing else to do, ordered the watch on deck to scour the anchor. Some one calls cheerful ness the daughter of employment, and it is certainly true that occupation is the necessary basis of all enjoyment. Men who have half a dozen irons in the firo are not the ones to eo crazy. Put in all the irons you have, shovel. poker, tongues, and all, without the least fear ot beiug too busy, it the man of voluntary or compelled leisure who mopes and pines himself into the mud-house or tha crave, .bra ploy- ment Is nature's physician, according to Galen, and an occupation which i innocent is most certainlv better than none at all. Schiller declared that he found the greatest happiness in life to consist in .t t i t ine regular uiscnarge or some meennn ical duty. Motion is nature's law, ac tion u n man a salvation, physical and mental. Stagnant water becomes pu trid, flowing water is pure and sweet. Idleness in man u just as surely moral death. No thoroughly occupied man was ever vet miserable," though he may have had an idle moment in which he may have thought so. Dis content arises under want of occtipa- tion.pnd that, no man need be without, who is blessed with health, eyes hands, and the usual physical endowment?.

All rwer appears only in transition; the firefly only glows when upon the wing. Keep busy that u the tnic motto. Hint man among us is only truly wist- who Liyt himself out to work till life s latest hour, and that it the man who will live the longest, nnd who will live to the most purpose. e live in deeds, not in years. reep iuxy : "AWaaee uf orai-al'ioa w sit reat : A aatD.1 naite vacant la a minl diltreiiaJ;" A recent article on "Beer Million aires and "tacts tor Urmkers, the Hartford Times commends to the thoughtful consideration of the thou sands of beer-drinkers who nre patched by the hard times, and whose dimes and halt dimes have gono to build up the brewers' colossal fortunes.
