With our narrow gauge finished to Sardinia, and a connection from ITillsbo o east, either to Greenfield or Bainbridge, the coal traffic alone over our road would no doubt be sufficient to pay all expenses, and leave a handsome sur plus This should certainly be a strong in ducement to push the road on to completion.

Melancholy Death. A young man named Karris S. Evans, aged about 23 years, a brother of Mrs. Strobhart. of the Eli icott House, was brought here sick last Monday week, from Hawkinsville, Texas. He received the best medical attention ana nursing, butin spite of all efforts, he gradually sank-and died on Monday last. In consequence of his coming from the Southt an unfounded ru mor wai started, that he died of yellow fe ver, but the subjoined csrtificate of his phy sicians will of course set at rest all doubts on the subject: HILLSBORO, O., Oct. 1, 1878.

As we only returned home a few hours be fore going to press, it is impossible to relate our camp experience as it deserves, but we will do the best we can under the circum stances, which will have to suffice. The camp was sitoated about two miles from Morrow, on the Little Miami Rail road, in the beautiful valley of the Miami river, and was as pleasant a place as could have been selected. It consisted of a grove of about fifteen or twenty acres, and a large field for a parade ground. It was called "Camp Hamer," and the grounds were gra tuitously furnished by a Mr. Baker, of Morrow. All the companies met at Morrow about the same time Wednesday morning, and were formed into line and moved to the camp ground, headed by the 13th Regi ment band. They found everything ready for their reception. The tents had already been pitched, and nothing remained to be done but to make ourselves comfortable, which "the boys" were not slow in doing, The camp consisted of about eighty can vas tents, about 10 by 15 feet in size, and each Comfortably accommodating from to 8 men. The tents of the privates were pitched in rows of five or six, with a wide aisle between, and those of the officers were directly at the head of the aisles, where they could see their men. The regimental offi cers were quartered on the right edge of the Camp, near the parade ground, and the band quartered alongside of them. The regimental officers are, Col. J. W. Denver, of Wilmington; Lieut. Col. David Noble, of Hillsboro; Major Lee Kendall, of Ripley; Surgeon, J. L. Mount, of Morrow; Assistant Surgeon, Moses Dwiggins, of Wil mington; Adjutant, David Howe, of Mor row; Quartermaster, H. F. Walker, of Wil mington; Drum Major, Wni. Matthews, of Hillsboro. The non-commissioned staff are, M. D. Egbert, of Lebanon, Sergeant Major; Quartermaster Sergent vacant; H. F. Moon, of New Richmond, Commiss ary Sergent; James Gilmore, New Rich mond, Hospital Steward. There were eight companies on the ground, including the Scott Dragoons, who do not belong to the regiment, but were called company F during the encampment, and treated as a regimental company. A company from Waynesville, O., arrived on the grounds Thursday, signed the muster roll and took the oath of allagance to the State. They had no arms or uniforms, and returned home Friday morning. The following are the companies and commissioned officers of the regiment: Company A Morrow Light Guard Capt. Harrison Kirk, 1st Lieut. Geo. Em ery, 2d Lieut. J. W. Baker. Company B Noble Light Guard, Hills boro Capt John Matthews, 1st Lieut. R. S. Woodrow, 2d Lieut. E. B. Shipp. Company C Denver Light Guard, Wil mington Capt. J. L. Moon, 1st Licet. D. White, 2d Lieut. 3. C. Baker. Company D Custer Light Guard, Wil mington Capt. Madison Betts, 1st Lieut. E. W. Shepherd, 2d Lieut. C. B. Dwiggins. Company E New Richmond Light Guard Capt. Wm. McMurchy, 1st Lieut. W. R. Glee, 2d Lieut. Mont. Simmons. Company F. Scott Dragoons, Hillsboro Cjpt. Ed. Mullenix, 1st Lieut. Jerome Richards, 2d Lieut. Ezra. Stevenson. - . Company G Georgetown Light Guard Capt. D. C. Thompson, 1st Lieut. T. J. Leeds, 2d Lieut. H. H. Shepherd. Company II Ripley Light Guard Capt. Alonzo Lokey, 1st Lieut. L. H. Wil liams, 2d Lieut. W. B. Tomlinson. A regular routine of camp duty was laid down by the Colonel, which wasstrictly en forced, as follows : Reveille and Roll-call, 6 A. M.; Police Call, 6J0; Sick Call, 6:30; Breakfast, 7; Squad Drill 8; Guard Mount, 9:30; Compa ny Drill 10:30; Dinner and Roll Call, 12 M.; first Sergeant's Call, 1 P.JM.; Officers, Call 1:30; Battalion Drill, 2:30; Retreat and Dress Parada, 5; Supper, 6; Tattoo and Roll Call, 9; Taps Lights out 10:30. Every morning from 6 to 8, men were de tailed from each company by the Order ly Sergeants for guard duty, who reported the Officer of the day. They remained on duty 24 hours, two on and four off, and were placed around tho camp, each man having a beat of about forty yards. No one was allowed to pass the picket line with out the countersign or a pass from the Colonel, and the guard duty at least was a fair sample of actual service. Adjutant General Miley and Governor Bishop arrived at Camp Friday morning, and were escorted to headquarters by the Noble Light Guard and Scott Dragoons, headed by the band. General Miley inspected the regiment Friday afternoon,' in the presence of Governor Bishop and a large crowd of spec tators. Sunday was the most interesting day of the week, and the ground was filled with spectators to see the dress parade, at 5 o'clock iu the afternoon. .' The order preserved during the week was excclleut, and Col. Denver remarked that he had never seen 400 men together before, who were so easily governed. The guard-house was empty during the whole week, and the absence of all drunkenness, was something to be commended. The 13th Regiment is indeed a fine one, and every member of it was agreeably sur prised at the number of good companies contains. -They are all well drilled, and are rapidly improving, and the companies are mostly made up of gentlemen of culture and refinement. Of course there are a 'sprinkling" of "roughs," but that is to be expected out ofany organization of 400 members. . Saturday night two large fires were built, and the regiment was called together to listen to speeches. Col. Denver was the first to address the regiment, which he did in an able manner, thanking them for the excellent manner in which they had con ducted themsclves,and complimenting them on their fine appearance andsoldirely bear ing. Gen. Miley was the next speaker, who also complimented the regiment and its offi cers. He is in favor of reducing the stand ing army and appropriating the money to the militia of the various States. Adjutant Howe was the next called for, and briefly addressed the large crowd that had assembled. A number of other speeches were made by various Captaias and Lieutenants, which we will have not space to mention. At 9 o'clock Monday morning the com panies broke camp, and all the men on the ground were on their way home by o'clock in the afternoon. Cheer after cheer rent the air as the companies march ed from the grounds, and all went home feeling that they had had a taste of camp life, which was almost equal to actual ser vice, and that they had been greatly bene fitted thereby. Teachers' Column. reply to numerous inquiries teachers, we state, that the "Teachers' Col umn" in the Acirs, the use of which was tendered to the late Institute and accepted, will be commenced as soon as the Editors appointed by the Institute furnish us the matter for the same. The teachers of . the county would be glad to hear from them. CAMP NOTES. - Col. Denver weighs 275 pounds, and is one of the finest-looking gentlemen we ever saw. Capt. John Matthews was officer of the day on Thursday, and the fine manner in which he conducted things was remarked by all the regimental officers. , Drum Major Will Matthews was on du ty only two days during the encampment, as he was taken sick on Thursday, and has not yet fully recovered. He was kind ly entertained and cared for at the resi dence of Mr. Cadwallader. Orderly Sergeant Chas. Barry resigned his commission on Sunday, and asked to be reduced to the ranks. The Noble Light Guard will never find as efficient an officer to succeed him. Capt. MatthewB was loudly called for to make a speech Sunday night, but with his usual bash fulness slipped off to his tent and hid himself. Lieut. Shipp was called to make a speech Sunday Bight, but modestly held back. They would not excuse him, how ever, and he was finally trotted out and made to excuse himself, which he did in good style. Tally one for Shipp. Adjutant General Miley says the 13th Regiment Band is one of the finest milita ry bands in the State, and we think, he ought to know. Captain Ed. Mullenix was officer of the day on Friday, and it was evident to ev erybody that he was an old soldier who knew what real duty was. The Scott Dragoons were the best-drilled company in camp. Everybody was sur prised at it, but nevertheless it is a fact. Capt John Matthews had command of the battalion drill on Friday, and the way he handled the regiment would have done credit to an old veteran. Flint Rockhold acted as Drum Major while Will Matthews was on the sick list. Private F. J. Picard was on the sick list during the whole encampment, and nar rowly escaped an attack of fever. Sergeant Moyers served a couple of days as regimental marker, and he says that fighting Indians is pleasant, compared to double-quicking it across a twenty acre field with the mercury at 90 in the shade. Seven-up and "draw" poker were the amusements indulged in by the boys at camp last week. Hardly anyone could believe that leader DaBruin, of the band, had only been play ing E flat eighteen months. The boys thousht he must be a natural-born musi cian, and we guess he is. Col. Noble took the whole band and a portion of the company to a circus at Morrow one night during the encamp ment. The Band went to Morrow one night during the week and serenaded several of the leading citizens. Col. Noble had command of dress pa rade Friday afternoon. He looks much better at the head of a regiment than he does at the head of a company. He would make a fine-looking General. At the salutation of a guard from Co. one night at camp, of ''who comes there?" the reply was "friend, with a half-pint of whisky." "Advance, friend, and give us a smile," said the guard. Col. Noble treated tho band to their dinners at Lovelandon Monday. The Noble Light Guard are the senior company ot the regiment, ana tncretore march at the head of the column. Hillsboro, with her two fine companies and regimental band, carried off the hon ors at the encampment, and our citizens should justly feel proud of them. The Noble Light Guard have the finest flag in the regiment. There is no enmity existing between the Wilmington and Hillsboro companies. The boys are on the best of terms with each other, and the officers oi theW dniing ton companies are gentlcmia would not stoop to jealousy. A large straw-rick, which furnished the regiment with bedding, was set on fire Sunday night by a boot-black. He was captured, lodged in the guard-house and sentenced to be tied to the ground and left in the woods after the regiment march ed off, but ho managed to Tireak the cords which bound him and escape. Adjutant Howe, of Morrow, is one of the finest gentlemen we ever met, and is also an officer who understmds his busi ness and will stand no "foolishness." We want the regimental encampment at Hillsboro next year. The Scott Dragoons brought their tents home with them. Although the rain poured down in tor rents a couple of days, the boya suffered no inconvenience, as the fiue new tents turn ed the water like a tin roof. They will be kept for the 13th 's exclusive benefit, and were shipped to regimental headquarters at Wilmington. Lieut. R. S. Woodrow is the fiercest looking Lieutenant in the regiment. The "wickedest man" in the company ran a "chuck-luck" bank a few days at camp, and the boys dropped - their change right along. All the companies but the Noble Light Guard engaged in targret-practice Satur day morning. The Morrow company were the victors. George Barrere is the best nurse in the company, and was in demand the entire week. Stevenson & Young have the contract for furnishing the unifefrmof the Waynes ville company. Sergeant Stevenson took their measures iu camp, they giving him the job in preference to a Columbus house. A couple of the band boys were found on the outside of the picket line one day last week Bucking a big stick of barber pole candy, and trying their level best to decipher some fine, very fine, writing in letters they had received from home, from their mothers (?) The Bixteen pages were written full and then twice across, and there was where they were having the trouble. The last words are always the sweetest.. Personal. Mr. John Doggctt, of Cincinnati, was in town last week, visiting relatives and friends. Mrs. Oscar Lemon and children, were vis iting her parents at Winchester, O. last week.

The City of Cincinnati vs. The Hills boro and Cincinnati R. R. Co. Leave to Wm. Butler, Duncan, and the M. & C. R. R. Co. to answer respectively during this term, and cause continued. Disney and Thompson for plaintiff, McClintick & Sloane for defendants. 2. Samuel W. Elliott vs. The Greenfield Building and Saving Association. On Er ror continued to await action of Supreme Court in reserved case. Collins for Pit!. Irwin contra. 3. Miller vs. Watts, Executor of Jesse Miller, deceased. On appeal. 4. Same case on Error. The Court de cided in these cases, that the action was one at law and not in equity, and was not a proper case for an appeal, lhat Miller was entitled, as a matter of right, to atrial by jury on the issues made by the plead ings. The appeal was dismissed. In considering the case on error, the Court held that the Common Pleas Court erred in sending to the jury the case on is sues made tip as in chancery. That Dr. Miller was prejudiced in his rights in the trial of the case below, by the issues as made in the case, and thereupon it was considered that the judgment and findings of the Court below be reversed and set aside, and the cause remanded for a new trial, and that Dr. Miller recover his costs. The case will now be tried over again in the Common Pleas Court, unless taken to Supreme Court. Thompson, Meek and Collins for Dr. Miller; Matthews & Hug gins, Sloane & Hough, for Executors of Jesse Miller. 5. Spilker vg. Trustees of Salem Town ship. This was a case where Spilker originally obtained an injunction from the Probate Court, restraining the Township Trustees from letting a ditch. In the Common Pleas, on a trial, the injunction was dissolved. Spilker appealed. At the District Court he dismissed his appeal, and judgment was taken against him for costs. Matthews & Hnggins for Spilker. Collins for Trustees. 6. Foulke vs. Building Association of Greenfield. 7. Simpson vs. Building Association of Greenfield. 8. Same vs. Same. In the first case judgment of the Common Pleas was affirm ed. In the last two cases the judgment was reversed. All three of the cases will go to the Supreme Court, where a similar case is now pending on reservation. The questions involved raise the question as to the power of a Building and Lean Associa tion to loan to one of its members more than the par value of twenty shares of stock, and secure the loan by a mort gage given by outside parties, not mem bers of the Association, as well as other questions. It is not considered by the Courts heretofore, that any of the rulings will determine the question until the !su- nrenie Court has Dassed upon them. W. II Irwin and Thompson for Building Associa tion : Collins tor t oulke and Simpson. 9. Rhoades vs. Barrere et al on appeal. Same case on Error. The Court decided that the case was one at law and not in equi ty, and dismissed appeal. On the Error case, the Court decided there was no error in the proceedings, and no proper Bill of Exceptions, and refused to reverse the Common Pleas. Exception noted. Collins for Rhoades; Sloane and Gardner for Barrere & Spees. 11. Chapman & Murphy vs. Samuel Sol lars. This is a case to enforce a tax lien on lands of Samuel Sollars, sold under an assessment for Road Purposes, under the two mile Free Turnpike law, and bought bv Chapman & Murphy at Tax sale. Their lax deed being declared invalid, they ask a lien for the money paid, interest and penalty and taxes paid since. The Com mon Pleas allowed the amount with inter est, without penalty. Sollars appealed. The District Court being divided in opin ion, and the question being one of difficul ty, reserved the case to the Supreme Court for decision. Collins for plaintiff, Mat thews & Huggins and Thompson for defend ant. 12. N. Lehnian & Bro. vs. Vance and Davis. This was an injunction case, to stay sale of property on execution from Ross county, ihe part of the petition on which the injunction was allowed, depending on Record testimony, was unsustained by evidence. Two voluminous Records from Baltimore were produced, but did not sus tain the case made by the petition. That part of the petition failing, ademurrer was held good to the remainder, and the in junction was dissolved. The Court held that the agreement of attorneys after judgment to stay proceed ings, d:d not bind clients without express authority. Second, That there was no suf ficient consideration for such agreement, even if it could be made. Third, That the agreement shown at all events only affected a Baltimore judgment and had no application to the Ohio judgment. It fur ther apieared by the record of the Ross county judgment, that the matter had been fully adjudicated. Collins for Lehman & Bro., Williams and Gardner for Vance et al. J. W. Higgins, I. Brownson Worley and George Fox were admitted to the Bar and sworu in as attorneys. They passed a fine examination, and the committee who ex amined them speak in high terms of their thoroughness, and especially of Mr. Hig gins, who was exceptionally perfect. 13. A. F. Evans, Executor, &c. vs. Hughes, Meek et al. The Court held in this case, that the pur chaser of land incumbered by a mortgage, subject to the mortgage, could not be let in to plead usury in the mortgage- The rul ing of Judge Steel on the question in the Court below, that the purchaser of a mere equity of redemption cannot set up usury against a mortgage, was affirmed. There were other questions in the case deserving of a separate report, which can only be furnished accurately by the coun sel themselves. Thompson for defendants, Matthews & Huggins for plaintiff. 14. Vance vs. McC'onnaughey et al. Vance appealed from a decree in equity against him in the Court below for costs. Witnesses were summoned for trial at this term, butowing to the failure of plaintiff to get some depositions, the case was con tinued at his costs. Meek for plaintiff, Sloane Hough .and Collins for defend ants. The District Court it will be remembered, is only a Court to try cases on appeal in Equity, and cases on Error at Law The docket in this county is seldom large, and we are informed that there is seldom a case upon it that does not involve an im portant or novel legal principle, and this was noticeably so at the last term. The accuracy of the foregoing report may be relied ui on. Union Tp. Mr. Frank Michael seems to be a poor hand at guessing when he attributes our article to have reference to his b: other.

HIBBEN & SON. Home Correspondence. New Boston. To-day has been a pleasant day in Bos ton, lue M. E. Sabbath .School has just closed its first six months term for the vear with a general review of the lessons learned during tne term, anu me exercises were highly creditable to officers, teachers and scholars. The morning was spent in a thorough re view and drill for the public exercises, which were to come off in the evening. The morning hour was closed by the re peating of the Lord s Prayer, led by J udge Meek, who had been specially invited to attend to-dav. Shortly after 2 o'clock P. M. the public exercises were opened with singing and prayer. Then most unexpect edly the Christian b. School, led by C. A. taster, came in en masxe, niucu to our pleasure and delight. and took part with ns The classes were then called separately, and members repeated all the verses com milted during the term. Singing accompanied bv the organ, al ternated with each exercise, and the two schools divided the singing between them. I rizes (nice new Uvmn Hooks, were awarded to those of the school who had committed and recited the nuniler of vers es assigned; the prizes being presented with a neat little speech by Judge Meek. 1 aid not learn the number ol prizes award ed, but think there were over 20 in all. After singing, and questioning in the infant class by the Superintendent, Judge Meek delivered a verv fine address. He was followed by Elder S. Morris, of the Christian church, who happened to be present, it being the 5th Sabbath in the month, and he having no regular service elsewhere. Mr. Morris takes great pains to teach music in his school, and infuse a love of the science into the community. Willie Daniels presided at the organ. The success of the M. Et School is at tributed to the effortsof its Superintendent, liro. r . 1 . bumgarner, and his associate of ficers and teachers. I forgot to mention in the proper place, that Willie Hatcher, a late member of the school, who only two weeks ago sent to the school for his 15. S. papers and who died during the past week, was remembered in the opening praver and also the address. Take it altogether, I think it was the pleasantest and most profitable Sabbath School day ever spent here. The school continues, meeting regularly at a A. Al. ' "HARRY FROM CARMEL." Sept. 28, 1778.

Sept. 26, 1878. JEMIMA. Reply to "Contentment." I discover, Mr. Editor, that it is good olicy to call things by their right names, or I had written some prettv hard things. but it was not till I called on the "toadies," that I heard a "squeak." Come on, gentle men, don't be afraid. If you have no ar guments you can "throw dirt," and that will make you feel better. "Contentment" savs he knows that "he who touches filth will be defiled." I sup pose he means "who touches" it to fling it at his neighbor, and if so, I think he oujht to be "dtriled." But "C." don't make much of an "out" at throwing dirt even. He don't know enough that is, he isn't "post ed." Whv, "C," if vou've known me these ten vears, didn't vou know that I've been dismissed from a school for immoral con duct? But then I never blamed the Ex aminers for that. And now, friendly readers, I want you to notice the full strength of "C.'s" powerful) argument. Because my first attempt at teaching, nine yean ago, was not a success, I criticize the conduct of the Examiners, noir.' You can see the full force of the ar gument no, not the full force you cannot see that till you know that I have never been a teacher by choice. 1 have never sought for a district school, and if anyone wishes me to teach, he must come to see me or send forme, as others have dore. C. forgot to state icA.y I failed in my attempt to instruct the Ex. Com. and why I failed to be elected Editor of the "Teach er's Column." The simple fact was, that neither ot the motions was permitted to come before the Institute, and it was on this account that the President was accus ed, publicly, of running the Institute in ine mieresi oi a clique, nere inis unei-c me "toadyLtni" eajne in. I am inclined to exonerate the President, but if I do, I must say that he is not fit to be president of a country debating club. The facts in these two cases are these: In the first case, the resolution was offer ed, and a motion was made and seconded, that it be adopted. Then a new resolu tion was ofiered, "under color of an amend ment," a trick that has worked itself into parliamentary usage through political chi canery, whose object is to confuse and de feat an innocent majority. As there was no time given for remarks in this case, the "ruse" was successful, the motion was car ried, and the originul motion as amended I'os nerer brought up. In regard to the editorship, I did consent to lie a candidate, but gave the Institute to understand that it must be by their wi.-h, not mine, that I would serve. To prevent my name from coming before the Institute, one of the Examiners made a motion to put the matter in the hands of a committee. He may say that this was done without malice aforethought, but under the circum stances it hasa very suspicious appearance. I had thought to tell you the "true in wardness" of my connection with the move ment to change the Board of Examiners, but that must wait. Yours, SCRIPTOR. SCRIPTOR. A "Noble" Host. John Watson Noble, formerly known as "Uncle Watson," was the recipient of a very agreeable surprise on Tuesday, the 17th, the occasion being his 70lh birthday. There were about 80 persons present, in cluding his sister, Margaret Washburn, aged 8), his three sons, Dalton, Alexander and James F., their children, and his two great grandchildren, Uncle Jacob Pitzer, aged 7'J, and Isaac Wilbanks, who will be 70 Oc tober 18th. "Uncle Watson" came to Ohio from Pennsylvania, with his father's family, in 1815, and settled on Glady run, in Clinton county, in 1M. lie has-residcd in this county for a good portion of the time, and now resides in Dodson township. He has one brother, George Noble, who is 7S, and re sides in Indiana. After a aood dinner provided bv the la dies, speeches were made by Rev. Hastings, J. J. Terrell and J. M. Dumenil, when ' Unc'.e Watson" was called out and gave a brief account of that region of country from 1S17 to the present time, and told how he once had to wear "tights."

Outhe 24th of August, at our neighbor ing village of Martinsville, Clinton Co., was held a reunion of the scholars ot the schools of that place, since the settle ment of the county to date. The quiet old Quaker church was pretty well filled with the scholars and their friends, but those scholars are not children now. On one of the raised seats sat five venerable forms, viz: Joseph R. Moon, Jas. Wright. Joseph Garner, Thomas Moon and Eliza beth Craw to rd. who are still lett as surviv ors of the little band (tf boys and girls who attended the first school ever taught in that township, snity-aerai years ago. But the school most prominently repre sented, of the olden time, was one under the fostering care of the Friends' church at that place, taught by Milton M. Ilollings- worth and his assistants, in the years 1Mb, '7 and '8. Out of 140 names that answered to the roll-call of more than 30 years ago, near titty have passed to the other shore. Such a class of hovs and girls are seldom collected in an obscure village school. Among the dead are such men as Judge Sloane, of your place, Drs. Sloane, of Io-r wa, Armstrong of Ind., Jackson, ot Oregon, Brown, of Ohio, Janev, of Kansas, besides many more equally talented and useful, whoses names are not now remembered. Of the living it would be invidious to peak. Suffice it to sav, they are'found ful filling every profession and calling in life, scattered over nearly every State in the Lnion and the islands oi the sea. Edwin P.

Morris, editor ot tiie Helmet, pub lished at Piqua, O. (one would not expect it from an editor) to stick the closest to his text of anv of the participants. "Con duct is Character" was his theme, and Beecher (excuse me, Isaac intellectually, I mean) never stuck closer to a text nor elucidated it more clearlv. Fine music enlivened the dav long to be remembered by the participants. Forest Home, fcept. 20, ! BRUTUS. Hamer Tp. The farmers of Hamer are now busv preparing the ground and sowing wheat. Manv of the fields will also be seeded down to grass at the same time. Many will buv their seed from the stores, and, H not careful in their selections, will still in troduce new pests on their farms. The daisy, "buck plantain," and other pests, which have appeared on many larms dur- ng the last two vears, ought to teach the farmers an important lesson in buying grass seed.

Two weeks ago Mrs. Moorman died. Upon hearing of her death. Dr. Moorman put in his appearance for the first time, it seems, since he leit nis iamny.

A this late hour he turns his thoughts to his little daughter Kitty, and because she voluntarily refn.-es to accompany him, he chai -es the above named persons with having alienated her ati'cctions from him, 1 hy telling her false stories concerning his and claims damages as already stated. . I Public sentiment !.erms to be against this 1 man Moorman, and whatever may be said in justification ot some things nc lias none, there are certainly many oilier things which lie and his frends cannot justify.
