Nrw it ia shown that Knonbnr Blaine never deserved bis good reputa tion. He has taken bribes in another case. JT&rTbe Boston Pilot, tbe well-known Catholic organ, which opposed Cleve and's nomination, now says: "We opposed the nomination of Cleve land,. the candidate; we shall faithfully and earnestly work for the election ol Cleveland, the standard-beater. We say to Mr Blaina now that bad he been a defender of the rights of naturalized citizens when those citizens were flanjt into fareisju pi isuiIVT untried and un charged, tbe Pilot wou'd support. him to-day, and a million Americans of the Irish race would vi te for him in No vember; but he did not do it, and bis pretensions of fair play and friendship are now sheer bumbng." ' iarTbe Woodsfleld Base Ball Club is making an excellent record. Tbe boys went np to Barnesville last Friday and played the boss club of that place. In nine innings the score stood 3 for each club, when Barnesville , suggested that tbe game he finished on Monday, which was agreed to. Our clob goose egged Barnesville in seven innings and they re turned the compliment six times. Tbe boys speak in the highest terms of tbe gentlemanly treatment'1 they received from their opponents. P. 8. Tbe Barnesville Clnb backed down and telegraphed that tbey'would not play on Monday. C fThe Belmont county Democratic' Convention nominated tbe following ticket on tbe 6th inst.: C Probate Judge D W. Cooper. Sheriff J. D Heinlkik. Pros. Att'y N. K Kennon. Commissioner Nathaniel Tailor Inf. Director Lett Jones. Coroner E. B. Kenkedt. The beat of feeling prevailed amongst the candidates and their friends, and it was sdmitted by leading men of both parties, after the convention had adjourn ed, that the ticket was exceptionally strong, and that a part, if not all of it would be elected. EW We find tbe lollowing in an ex change, and publish it for what worth there may be in it : Cholera remedy No one who has this bv him and take it in time will ever have tbe cholera. Take qaal parts of tincture of cay enne pppper, tincture of opium, tincture of rhubarb, essence of peppermint, and epirits of camphor.. Mix well. Dose 15 to 30 drops in a little cold water. Be coming to age and violence of symp1 tonn; repeat every 15 to 20 minutes un til relief is ohtained. Even when no cholera is anticipated, the above is an excellent remedy for or dinary summer complaints, colic, diarr- Lee , dy acnlcry, etc. XAs tbe time for holding tbe conn ty (air is approaching every resident of the connty should work with a will to make said fair a grand success. Farm era should preserve their finest speci mens of crops and get in .readiness their premium stock, mechanics exert their most 8trenous efforts to prepare some thing fine to exhibit, and tbe ladies en deavor to fill the halls with endless va rieties .of needle work, fine arts, fruits, etc. With a little extra exertion on the part of the people our fair cannot fall to be a success. t3T July. 3d wss tbe commencement of dog days, which continues until An gust 11th. The name was first given in reference to tbe heliacal rising of the constellation of Canis major, called Si rius, or tbe dog star, which was former ly thought to make tbe sea boil, dogs to go mad, wines to turn sour, animals gen erally to languish, and to originate fe vers and cholera. The name applied to this period probably took its origin from a festival having been formerly held at Argos, expressly instituted for tbe kill ing of dogs durintr the season. Elkins' programme, formed over in the mountainsjof West Va., is to throw his forces into Ohio over the B & O. road by way of Parkersburg and Ben wood. Tbe game may he considered a fine one on the part of Blaine's chief of staff, but it will not win. Gen. War ner's columns- will meet the enemy at both points and ' drive them from Ubio soil. The border is alive and prepared to check oil raiding parties orgsqlzed In the slums of eastern cities, or at the pleasure resorts in the monntsins of our sister State. Belmont, Monroe and Washington will take care of Blaine's raiders on their front. JCyThe following receipt for killing a town, which we clip from an exchange, we offer to our readers for their careful consideration: "If voa wish to kill a town, put op no more buildings than yon are obliged to occupy yourself. If yon should accidentally have an empty building and some one should ask to rent it, ask about, three times its actual thine Look at every newcomer with a scowl.' Turn a cold shoulder to every business man or mechanic seeking a home among yon. Go abroad for wares, rather than purchase of your own man ufacturers at the same price. Refuse to advertise, so that persons at a distance will not suppose any business is being done in yonr town. A prompt and close observance of these rules will ruin any town in three years " Bncklen'a Arnica Salve.

Uncle Fnller has been somewhat tardy of late and baa manifested a desire tore main in silence until news would accu mulate sufficiently ,so as to give ns some thing that would interest tbe reader. In deed we do not know whether we have attained the status of perfection in onr undertaking, at the present time, or not, nevertheless we shall venture to jot down a few thoughts. Since our last we have been Called on to bear an equal share, with the rest of our fellow creatures, of tbe nps and downs and mishaps to which mortality is subject. Now tbe story that we wish to relate please do not attribute to onr awkwardness, for accidents will hsppen with the most prudent and careful ones After performing onr first day's labor in wheat harvest, and in leaving tbe field in tbe evening, we concluded to take our grain cradle borne, place it wbere would not be exposed to the weather and, of course, in doing so we pieced it on our shoulder, and in onr route we came In. contact with a fence and in nn dertaking to climb the same with the cradle remaining on onr shouIder,caused the point ot the scythe to come in con tact witn onr person, innicting a severe wound on the back part of the leg op posite the knee joint, impeding our pro gress physically for about two weeks And to make np for another two weeks we were called on to suffer the pains ot an eruption or something of the nature of a boil, originating from the first nam ed wound. This time on the front part of tbe leg nnder tbe knee cap, but thanks to nature we have been restored to per feet sDundness again and ready for duty There is a general spirit of improve ment pervading our community the pres ent season in the way of bouse raising and refitting and bridge building.

Tbe tobacco crop in this section of country is presenting a tine appearance where tbe grasshoppers have not moles ted.

T jat nioht n nrnnlo nf lanipc. I , - - - t - , representing ibe best society in tbe viP age of Calais. Monroe county, 0-, can e to the institution having in charge Mrp. Ella Bryan, a charity patient, who had been supported by their generous cot. tributions for seme time. Mrs. Bryan was a sufferer Irom a spinal affeclior, mingled with a considerable portion ol hysteria, and was accompanied bv her son, Charles Bryan, who na'nrally took a great interest in bisafllicted mother The husband of Mrs. Bryan died some time ago at the Central Insane Asvlum. The woman was kindly admitted by the Sisters, and every effort made for her comfortable stay, the noble woik of charity in which they are engaged abo' ishing all lines of creed or caste, and Mrs. Bryan wa? perfectly contented with her surroundings. Dr. Halderman pre scribed for tbe woman and expressed a hope oi relieving her if not effecting a permanent cure. She remained through the night, and ate- her breakfast this morning, when a biy, a fellow about seventeen years o age, called to see his mother, and tried to induce her to leave the institution. The Sisters very prop erly refused to allow her- to go. The poor woman had been placed there by the proper authorities, was being cared for by tbe corps of physicians at tbe hospital, free of charge, and the Sister Superior told bim that he (the boy ) bad no authority to take the woman away. Mrs. Bryan was well satisfied with ber surroundings, and was only made uneasy by tbe continual chafing of the boy, who wanted ber to return home to Calais, with him, or rather to tbe charity of the friends who had brought ber to the hos pital. The boy then went to the Union depot and enlisted the eff rts of Officer Maboney in bis behalf.' The situation was explained to the officer, who very gentleminly declined to interfere. So set was the boy in bis desires to get tbe woman away, however, that after a con sultation with Dr. Halderman, it was. concluded to let the woman go. Accor dingly a back was called, and the unfor tunate Mrs. Bryan carried into it, and with her son, was driven to the Union Depot. Here they found they were too late for the train, and tbe woman unable to help herself and without friends was laid in the waiting room until tbe even ing train, when she will be taken home. Tbe action of the Sisters at St Fran cis is to be heartily commended. Mrs Bryan was a charity patient, taken in and cared for without pay or any pros pect of remuneration. She was pleased with her treatment, and would have been satisfied,' but for her boy who did not act at all- wisely In the matter. Mrs. Bryan would have been cared for in good style at the hospital, and tbe char itable ladies of Calais, who evidently brought her here after their patience and purses had been exhausted, will be sur prised, wen the party arrives there to night. Religion!, Services at Hannibal' Pastor, c. Wittbks, Oato, July 30, 1884 Eo Spirit: We had the pleasure, of visiting our fourth Quarterly Conference at Hannibal. Everything was in readi cess, chicken and beef steak plenty, and Rro. Isaac Tisher parading the streets looking up the interest of our Pastor... If all the cooks are as successful as Mrs. Rev Girrett, Mrs. Isaac Tisher and Mrs. Peo. Luthy, Hannibal surely is a desirable place to stop at. Oi Sunday, the 27th inst., Refv. Paine prencbed one of those sermons that reaches tbe heart. All the people say Bro. Paine is just the Presiding Elder for Baresville District. The Qiarterlv Con ference was a great success. Eider's claim raised and Bro. Garreti's pocket- book crowded. Qiarterly Conference commenced Saturday, 2G h inst., at 2A p h., at which all the interests of the charge were thoroughly riipcussed. Oi motion of J. R. H'ssom, Mt. Mo- riah was voted on and adrritted as one of the appointments of Hannibal charge. Resolutions respecting the high appre ciation in which the fastor, Kev. J. h Garret', is held, both in respect to his ability as a preacher and his Christian character, were unanimously adop'ed.to gether with a request for bis return to be patorate of tbe charge for another year.. lours, c, xxavh. The Irishman's Candidate. Tbe following was written by James G Blaine, in 1854, when he wss editor of the Kennebec Journal, a Know-Nothing paper: "We need stringent lsws to repnlate the Irish emigration from Eurore. If tbe present abuses are not correced, and corrected eoeedily, we shall become worse than Botany Bay; in fact, we are worse now", for more Irish reach here in a single year than were ever transported to the penal colonies in ten years.

"WOH.TE3: -OP- BOYS' CLOTHING. 3 CA.li I S. Those contemplating a trip westward will certainly do well to carefully con sult the time tables of the Baltimore and Ohio road. Its celebrated fast trains, its sure connections, and rates always as low as the lowest, make it beyond all controversy the best line West. Colo nists are carried in first class ears on fast trains, and every possible csre is taken to Insure comfort and convenience. Trains run through without change of jars to fyhioago, where direct connection is made with all leading lines to the west, northwest ahd southwest, making hnt a single change of ears to lows, f.tisss, Nebraska, Texas, Minnesota. oj. No other line can offer such advan tages as the Baltimore and Ohio. I's costs but very little time snd trouble to learn this, and in the end may lead to tbe saving of much of both as well as money. Above all things do not pur chase tickets before having a talk or re oeiving a letter from one of the B. 40. Agents. A letter addressed to W. K. Reppert, Columbus, Ohio; to J.T. Lsne, Wheeling, W.
