The printing done at the office of The Spirit of Democracy for the year ending September 1, 1872, amounted to $809 11. This includes Assessors' blanks, Treasurer's re ceipts, and other blanks for the dif ferent offices; also, the publishing of all notices and reports which the law required to be published during the year. Also, $139 31 for publishing delinquent list, which was allowed by the Auditor of State, and appor tioned to all funds. I certify the above "to be a true arid corrct statement,taken from the records in this office. M. Hoeffler, Auditor. Auditor's Office, May 30, 1873. j ' From the Barnesrille Enterprise, June 5. Monroe County spent only eight hundred and nine dollars and eleven cents for county printing last fall. This is a good showing and does credit to the honesty and fairness of the officers and printers. j"Mr. 'William Sidles, Constable of Sunsbury township, understands the duties of bis office.

If yon wish to deaden a timber lot for clearing off so the stumps will rot the soonest, and the brush burn the best, and the land be in best order for a wheat fallow in the fall, do it in the month of July. Now is the time, while the trees and brush and vegetable stuff are on the make. i"To our friends throughout the county we would say: If you require advertising or bills of any description, call at the Spirit office. We can, and will, do your work at figures which will give satisfaction ; and the work will be performed in a neat and workmanlike manner.

That's exactly what they do. An exchange says: "The neatest street dre&3 is one that swings clear of the ground." JSTAn exchange has the following plan of keeping flies from - picture frames : Boil four onions in a pint of water, then with a clean brush wash your frames over in this liquid and the flies will not light upon them. Ihe on ion. will not injure the frames and the odor soon disappears. It is better than unsightly gauze covers to your pictures. 3Tlt has just been proved by actual analysis that the last gill of milk drawn from the ndder of the cow contains six teen times the amount of cream inci dent to the first one the separation of the cream from the milk taking place in part in the udder, particularly in instan ces where the animal is suffered to stand at rest some time before milking. To Clean Floob Cloths. Sweep and clean the floor cloths with a broom and damp flannel, in the usual manner, then wet them all over with milk, ana rub them till bright with. a dry cloth, They will thus look aa well a. u they were rubbed witn a waxea flannel, with out being so slippery, or so ; soon clog ged with dust or dirt - r , Cornucopia Take a crook-neck,hard- shelled Summer squash, one that is rough and warty.

Put on about three coats of paint, and varnish it, and you will have as pretty a cornucopia for a Winter bouquet or dried flowers, as though it was made of something very nice. .- ; Strawberry : Short ' Cake.

If any one wishes to know how to kill those little bugs; which get on oleanders, take piece of lime the size of a hen's egg. and dissolve in about two quarts of wa terj and wash the stalk and branches of the treef They will. disappear. Mouse hold: In Act of Cruelty. Chapped hands and face are the most Bgrious annoyances that - farmers, an& people, who labor mnch out of doors, experience from exposure. Exposed persois, especially, children, repeatedly suffer intense! from great cracks upon the bands, that often bleed. It is erne to allow one's self or others to suffer in this way, when the means of positive prevention are so easv ta be had, and so cheaply, as to psv ten cents for cake of Hand Sapolio. Hand Sapolio is not onlv better than the costliest soap for removing dirt, but it prevents chap ping, and renders the skin sou ana pli able, bold everywhere.

Very few had been set out before this If it is seasonable from this on, hay and oats will improve greatly, but it is thought the crops of each must be very lght. Wheat is fan. Potato bugs plenty. Some persons here are using ans Green on them and say it is suc cessful. They put a teaspoonful of the drug in a gallon of water and sprinkle the plants. The society of Christians here held an 'association a few weeks , ago, which was quite interesting. A numoer oi Ministers from i various places met preached and discussed questions. Af ter the 'association' adjourned, a pro tracted meeting was held by Rev. Cram- et, the resident minister here. Several 8 or 10) united with the church.

Lyon. - " Wednesday, Z p. m. the crowning feature of the Convention was the chil dren's meeting appointed for this after noon. Quite a number of the children, youth and aged, gathered together until the house was well nigh filled. Although excessively warm, there was excellent order, and a marked interest manifes ted by all present The speakers for the occasion were H. Lyon, J. Shaw and C. Lurker the latter speaking in German who acquitted themselves and interes ted children and all by their - brief but spicy, pointed remarks. The speeches were interspersed by singing, alternately by the English and German - Schools. We could not understand tbe words, but we could the music, and we must say it was grand. Altogether we think all. were well pleased and profited by the meeting. At the close of the afternoon services, Kev. Wilson made a few re marks, by way of encouraging and ex horting in the work before us. Although this was the closing work of theConven tion ' proper, yet a service was held at night and a sermon by Rev.; J. I. Wil son, of Antioch. We think those attend ing this session of the Convention were entertained and prohted ny the exercises. The delegates were perfectly delighted with ' the kindness manifested by the good people of Baresville in their enter tainment of the delegates from abroad. ISSrThe New York Times (AdminiS' tration) has thi3 reflection upon the Kn Klux business in South Carolina, which has probably occurred to some, other persons as well: "Some of the persons engaged in this business oi convicting Ku Klux appear to have made a very good thing of It, and we find one indi vidual given the handsome sum of $17, 400, which makes a very snug income indeed." The fellow, savs the Courier Journal, who got that purse, would not be convinced that the South is loyal if he were to live a thousand years, v jCSTRattazzi, the Italian statesman, whose death occurred a few days ago, must be added to the long list of men who have been aided in their public ca reer by wives of commanding talents and restless ambition. Madame Rattazzi was the grand niece of Napoleon Bona parte and cousin of the late Juniper or But more important than this distin guished relationship was the fact that she is a lady or nrunanc beauty and va ned accomplishments, with admirable tact both in society and politics. It is not questioned that she performed a leading part in shaping the recent his tory of Italy. ... , A Soldier Murdered.

The facts gathered in relation to the tw(v children found locked in the closet of an empty house this morning, give good grounds for suspicion that the person of Anna Reagan, if not of both, children, was outraged, and that they were the vio lins of a hellish design far surpassing that of the H anion affair.
