Mr. Hirons closed the store and went to supper.

The gentlemen stood in a row on the end of the platform and wiped their eyes, and wished they had never lived to see the day, and many of them would not be consoled until they re flected that there would be a number of new scholars next year, when they got to qnareling for first choice, and in the heat of the strife their troubles were forgotten. Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Quinn again enter tained their friends last evening, (Tuesday) at their home on East Walnut street.

All present enjoyed themselves, and full justice was done to the delicious refreshments. The whole affair was attended with much eclat, and the genial host and hostess have the best wishes of the young society of Hillsboro. Death of Robert Doggett. Mr. Robert Doggett, eldest son of Jamea W. and Hester Doggett, died about 1 o'clock last Wednesday morning of con sumption at his parent's residence on Wal nut street.' lie has been sick for several months, and his death has been daily ex pected for some time past He was well known all over the county, having been engaged in business in this city for several years. He was about 25 years of age, and no, boy ever walked the streets of Hillsboro with a larger heart in bis bosom. He died happy, and was perfectly resigned, and e pressed a firm assurance that he was going to that Home above where all our sorrows are forgotten. The funeral services were held at the M. E. church on Friday afternoon, Rev. James Kendall officiating, and the remains were followed to their last resting-place by many sympathizing friends. Republican Candidates. It is becoming evident, as the time for nominating candidates for county offices approaches, that there will be an unusual ly lively competition in both parties for the chief prizes to be drawn. As far as we have been able to learn, the following gen tlemen on the Republican side will enter the lists, "with several townships yet to hear from:" For Representative Dr. J. L. Wilson, of Madison tp.: G. W. Martin, Esq. and Dr. John Shockey, of Clay. For Treasurer C. B. Miller, J. M. Hiestand, Harry Glenn, and W. J. Her- ron, of Liberty township ; E. R. Fierson, of Madison ; Perry King, of Dodson. For Sheriff D. C. Arthur, John Mc- Nicol, aud James M. Barrer, of Liberty ; A. J. C. Blount, of Marshall ; Sampson Williams, of Brushcreek ; L. G. Marconet, of Clay ; T. A. Mullenix, of Jackson ; Chas. H. Daughters, of Fairfield ; Jacob M. Grim, James P. Smith and J. C. Cald well, of Madison ; J. J. Dwyer, Samuel Patton, Daniel Weyer and John Snyder, of Paint in all 15. For Clerk We hear of no opposition to the preseut worthy incumbent, Mr. J. M. Hughey, who is universally conceded to have made a good officer and to be enti tled to renomination for a second term, according to usage. For Prosecuting Attorney II. L. Meek, of Madison; J. T. Hire, II. R. Quinn and A. Harman, of Liberty. For Commissioner II. II. Redkey, of Concord ; B. F. Cox, of Whiteoak. If we have omitted any names, it is un intentional and we will publish the names omitted, if furnished us by themselves or their friends. - It is said that "in the multitude of counselors there is safety." If the same rule will apply to candidates, it must be admitted that the Republican party is in a highly safe condition. At all events, it is certain there will be no scarcity of good material before the Convention, and the only trouble will be to make the best selections, so as to give strength to the ticket and insure a reasonable prospect of success. THE NEW ELECTION LAW. Resolutions of the Democratic Central Committee. Resolved, 1st That the Legislature of the State of Ohio, having made it a crime, under penalty of a heavy fine and impris onment, for any candidate for office, under the laws of this State, to promise, offer, or give "any money or thing of value to any elector," for the purpose of influencing or retaining the vote or the influence of such elector, or influencing him to vote or to re frain from voting, or for any person to intimidate, coerce or influence any voter, or to seek, to influence the vote of any elector for or with any of said con-iider-ttions of value, or to ask, daman,!, or re ceive from any candidate for any office any money or other thing of value to influence any vote, it is the duty of all good citizens to enforce these laws. Resolved, 2d. That any or all of the above-mentioned acU, besides being crim inal tinder the law, are criminal in them selves, burdensome upon candidates, cor rupting and pernicious to electors, and have a direct tendency to subvert our in stitutions. Resolved, 3d. That we will do all in our power to secure the punishment of any or all who may violate the election laws of this State, without regard to who may suf fer from the enforement of said laws. Resolved, 4th. That a committee of three persons be forthwith appointed by the Chairman of this Committee, whose duty it shall be to vigorously prosecute all violators of said laws. Resolved, 5th. That the Executive Com mittee of the Republican Central Com mittee be invited to appoint a committee similar to that mentioned in resolution 1th, to co-operate with said committee, and with us, in securing the vigorous enforce ment of the laws for preserving the purity of elections. Resolved, Cth. That copies of these res olutions be immediately sent by the Secre tary to the Republican Executive Com mittee, and the Hillsboro Gazette and Highland News. The above resolutions should meet the hearty approval of all good citizens, and we have no doubt the Republican Central Committee will cordially respond to the invitation of the Democratic Central Com- to CO-Onerstl with thpm in nrnaM,nl. I r. ing all violators of the law. (Special Correspondence of the News. ANOTHER PATENT SWINDLE! Farmers, Look Out! LYNCHBURG, June 16, 1879. j j For the last three or foar weeks, a large quantity of "Spring Bed Bottoms" have been accumulating at the R. R. Depots at Hillsboro and Lynchburg, addressed to well-to-do farmers, living in the county. This left the impression that the oily tongued agent had been around, making contracts for sub-agents for each township, for the sale of these articles. It required but Tery little investigation to discover that such was the fact, and that the town ship agents had each signed a contract, in which the advantages, according to repre sentations made, were all on the side of the farmers. Last Thursday evening agent No. 2 pre sented himself to Mr. R., who lives 3 miles west of Lynchburg, and demanded pay ment for 18 "Spring JserHBottoms," sent to him according to contract at ($10.00) ten dollars each, making the claim $180. The contract that had been agreed upon was for one Spring Bed Bottom free, as sample. The agent also stated that he was a lawyer from Columbus, engagrd by this Company to do their collecting, and that he was yery sorry that Mr. R. had allowed himself to be swindled as he did; but the contract was drawn up so tight and in such a man ner that he could not -void payment of the claim. Furthermore, if he refused to settle, they would enter suit against him in the U. S. court in CleeiiAj or Toledo, O., as the contract was gotten np with that contingency in view. This is the stereo typed argument used 'invariably by this class of swindlers, no matter what article they are trying to force mi their victims, Mr. R. said he would go to Lynchburg and get advice, and if be was recommend ed to settle he would do so. He took the agent to Judge Torrie, and both parties delivered up their papers to him, to de cide whether R. shout! settle with the lawyer from Columbus or aland a suit In the meantime the agent had agreed to de duct 10 per cent, for -cash. The Judge said he would examine the papers careful ly and give his advice the following morn ing at 8 o'clock. Before the time arrived the lawyer got into his buggy and called on the Judge to near his decision, lie re quested him to come to his office, and he would tell him in presence of the other party. The lawyer (!) did not relish the invita tion, nor the shape the matter had got into, but said he had to go oat in the country, and would be back in time to take the Hillsboro train. He then drove out of town at full speed, leaving his con tract and Spring Bed Bottoms behind. He showed quite a number of notes given by Borne well-known farmers of Highland county, who had settletT5n that manner rather than go to law. It persons who are caught by these swindlers would not agree to settle, only through the courts, it would put a stop to this kind vind ling. Yours, B. J. A. Grand Fourth of. July S. Celebration. At a meeting held at the Court House, in Hillsboro, on the evening of June 12th, 1879, for the purpose of making arrange ments for a Sunday School Celebration in the old style, on the 4th of July next, un der the auspices of the Highland County Sunday School Union, Judge G. B. Gard ner was chosen Chairman, and J. M. Hughey Secretary. The Secretary read a letter from the President of the Union, -?r. J. H. Rogers, ot t.ireenu'-ld, stating IrtTi-tgre! at his m ability to be present, and -asking the com mittee to go ahead and make such ar rangements as in their .wisdom they thought best for the success of the Celebra tion, and promising his hearty co-opera tion. Judge Gardner stated the Fair grounds of the Highland County Agricultural As sociation had been gratuitously tendered by the Society for the purpose of holding a Celebration. On motion, it was resolved, that we have an old-fashioned 4th of July Celebration and Sunday School Basket Pic-Nic, and that all the Sunday School in the county be re quested and invited to make preparation for, and attend the some, and that everybody be invited to come and bring baskets well filled. Therefore, on motion, 'the following committees were appointed : Committee of Arrangements. Captain Sam'l Amen, J. Matthews, J. K. Picker ing, Sam'l Wilson, E. E. Holmes, Geo. B. Gardner, L. Detwiler, S. S. Pangburn, Frank Glenn, Wm. Cooper, Chas. Glascock, A. Harman, Jas. Rowe, Capt. E. Carson, Miss Nettie Weatherby, Miss V. Wever, Mrs. Eli Stafford, Mrs. Venie Dill, Mrs Cary Roads.

On motion, it was resolved, that each of the above committees meet immediately, to add thereto a sufficient number, to make the several committees efficient, for the necessary preparation for the coming Cele bration. J. MHUGHEY, Sec'y. Death or Mrs. Mattie J. Browning. From the Lexington (Tenn.) Courier, of the Gth inst. we learn that Mrs. Mattie J. Browning, daughter of Mr. Daniel Brown ing, who was postmaster of Hillsboro near ly 25 years ago, died at Boonville Miss., on the 8th of May last, after a brief but painful illness. She was a graduate of old Oakland Female Seminary, class of '54, and spent most of her life in teaching. She was a member of the M. E. church. and died happy, in the faith of a glorious immortality. From an obituary notice in the Boonville (Miss.) Pleader, Bigned "T. and F. A." (two of her former pupils) we copy a brief extract : "Her career here, as teacher, terminated in perfect satisfaction, mingled with a sad regret that she retired so soon. Knowl edge was imparted to her devoted pupils through the channels of kindness and af fection, which endeared them to her. and excited in their tender hearts the sincer est love and respect. The years may come and go, aud the flowers fade upon the sod of our cemetery, yet her loving pupils and lrienus, anu an tnose wno appreciate real worth, will never forget Mrs. Browning." The Lexington Courier adds : "Mrs. Browning was a sister of Mrs. Lucy M. Taylor, of this place. We unite with the many friends of Mrs. Taylor in expressing our heartfelt sympathies in this her sad be reavement." The many old schoolmates and friends of Mrs. Browning in Hillsboro and else where will hear of her death with sincere sorrow. No Doubts. Judging from the universal satisfaction that Dr. Price's Unique Perfumes have al ready given, there is no donbt but that as high a reputation for charming perfumes will soon be acquired by the firm of Steele A Price as they have already gained for their culinary preparations. The delicate fra grance of Dr. Price's Perfumes wakes then very popular. HIGHLAND INSTITUTE. Commencement and Alumnae Reunion. THE LATTER A BRILLIANT SOCIAL EVENT. Greeting by Miss Lucy B. Woodrow.

One of the largest audienees we have ever seen assembled in Music Hall, was that of last Thursday evening, at the In stitute Commencement exercises. They began to pour in by 7 o'clock, and in less than an hour the hall was packed and standing-room at a premium. At precisely 8 o'clock the school marched in, headed by the younger pupils. The little ones, in their white dresses and gaily colored sash es, attracted much attention, while the graduates all wore white, and of course looked very beautiful. The audience was largely composed of strangers, from all parts of the State, which is the best evi dence of the popularity of the Institute. The stage was handsomely decorated and resembled a cool and shady forest. There was an abundance of flowers, taste fully arranged, and a large' flag covered the rear of the Btage, while the front was adorned with the flags of Englaud, Ger many, Switzerland, Italy, France, Ireland, Scotland and Columbia, the subjects of the graduating essays. The exercises were opened with prayer by Rev. Ramsey, of the Indian Territory, when the following programme was car ried out to the satisfaction of everyone: PART I.

The music was exceedingly well render ed, and reflected credit on the teacher, Miss Harman. Miss Ramsey figured con spicuously in the singing, and when we say it was up to her usual high standard, we give it all the praise that is possible. The other ladies also acquitted them selves well, both in the vocal and instru mental music. The essays were well de livered, and more interesting than gradu ating addresses generally. We had hoped to publish them, or extracts from therm but the young ladies declined the honor of appearing in print, and no synopsis we could give would do them justice. All the ladies were fortunate, as far as floral tributes were concerned, and we be lieve we have never seen them so plentiful. At the conclusion of each essay or piece of music, an army of little boys and girls would take possession of the stage, bear ing flowers arranged in beautiful baskets, bouquets, and in every way imaginable. The diplomas were delivered to the grad uates by Rev. Geo. Beecher, in a few brief and appropriate remarks, without the usu al flowery and oratorical address of an hour's duration, which generally attends Commencement. We think the omission of the address was wise, and a great relief to the large and perspiring audience. The class song at the conclusion of the exercises was one of the best things of the evening. The entire school was marched to the platform, and arranged with the children in front, and the scene was a beautiful one. The white dresses and gaily colored ribbons, contrasting with the decorations and rustic scenery, produced a fine effect, which was remarked by every one. Below we publish the song in full : Farewell, farewell ! to-nfeht we part From friends tnd teachers dear, Let scene of childhood joy depart, For womanhood is near. And now an unions gaze we caa o Futnre's mystic shore. Yet uooL'ht we see but the golden past Reflected ou before. Still we trust, for life is ever bright, Aud its rosy hues are shed On the youthful hearts, whose eager sight Sees joy by pleasnre led. Should clonda nedim our skies afar, ,t. And ourearthly hopea be riveu, We'll taro to Bethlehem's changeless star, And flnrl our hliae in Heaven. Farewell, strain, farewe!!, a thousand times farewell! The exercises closed with the benedic tion, and no doubt the school girls drew a long sigh of relief at the conclusion of the year's duties, and looked forward to the coming vacation with bright anticipations. The Alumnae Reunion At the Institute Friday evening, was one of the most brilliant social events that onr city has ever witnessed, and is still the chief topic of conversation. For weeks it had been talked of and looked forward to with bright anticipations, which were fully realized, and the Highland Institute Alumnte Reunion of 1879 will be long re membered and associated with the pleas antest recollections. As early as half-past seven o'clock the guests began to assemble, and such an assemblage was never before seen in Hillsboro. The evening was a pleasant one with the exception of being a little warm, but with the aid of fans and frequent draughts of sparkling ice water, no one experienced any great inconven ience. The entire ground ll xi of the building was thrown open to the guests, and the parlors and school-room were beautifully decorated. The east wall of the latter, di rectly behind the platform, was adorned with the words, "Welcome Si9ters"in large cedar letters arranged in an arch, below which was a large monogram, "II. I." (Highland Institute) in letters of cedar, on one side of which were the cedar figures 18G0, (the year the Institute was founded) and on the other 1879. The whole was set off with feetoong of cedar gracefully arranged, and the French and American flags, the former in honor of the Principal. Among the most prominent decorations of the parlors was a handsome silk flag on the north wall, and a small table on the south side of the room, laden with flowers, whose delicious fragrance filled the room, and the senses of sight and smell were alike pleased. The large veranda in front of the building was also decorated with cedar and flags, which were shown off with pleasing effect by numerous Chinese lanterns. A little after eight o'clock the Alumna?, numbering 48, marched from the parlors iuto the chapel, which was filled with an appreciative audience. The crowd was so A Ab Of To A Of large that many could not get standing room in the chapel, and the windows on the veranda were filled with spectators. The Alumuae Association is composed of members, of whom are deceased. non-residents were present. The ex ercises were very entertaining, and below we give the programme : March Misecs Lillie Smith, class of '71, and Ina Fenner, class of '75. Song of Welcome, by resident Alumnse. Prayer by Rey. S. W. Elliott, of Wil mington. Greeting Miss Lucy Woodrow, class of '73. Instrumental Solo Miss Weatherby, class of '77. In Memoriam, Mrs. Albert DePue, class of '72, by Miss Jamison, of Roxabelle.

Prophecy Mrs. D. S. Ferguson, class of '78. Waltz Lucy B. Smith. Song "Sing, Sweet Bird," Mrs. Ulric Sloane. Benediction. Our space will not permit us to men tion each performance separately. The recitations by Nannie Pugsley and Mag gie Ferris were very much admired, and the song by Mrs. Ulric Sloane, was a rare musical treat. She sings as only Mrs. bloane can sing, and as she had not sung in public for some time, it was all the more enjoyable. The Retrospect by Miss Gordon needs no worda of praise from us. All who were present pronounced it one of the fin- nest things they ever heard, and spoke in the highest terms of the manner in which it was delivered. She is an exceptionably good elocutionist, and has the rare gift of appearing perfectly self-possessed and at her ease, so seldom seen in lady speakers. fhe Greeting, by Miss Lucy . Woodrow, and the Prophecy, by Mrs. Ferguson, were also excellent, and well delivered. At the conclusion of the exercises the company was soon distributed all over the grounds and building, enjoying them selves in conversation and promenading. The company, we think, was the most ele gant that ever assembled in the Model Town. It was composed of the best peo ple in our city, together with a large num ber of visitors from abroad, and was truly a goodly array of "youth and beauty." If we do say it, we think there are few country towns in the State which can turn out such an assemblage. There were about 350 persons present. The ladies and most of the gentlemen appeared in full evening dress, and we never fully realized before that a well-dressed lady is one of the handsomest things in the world. Refreshments were announced about 10 o'clock, and the guests were waited on by the Alumnte. Notwithstanding the large number present, everybody was served satisfactorily? It was fully 12 o'clock before the compa ny dispersed, which they did, feeling that they had spent an evening long to be re membered. Below we give the Greeting of Miss Woodrow, the Prophecy of Mrs. Ferguson, and the Retrospect of Miss Gordon, in fuU: GREETING BY MISS LUCY WOODROW.

Silently, beautifully, rose the moon, In that balmy night in thf leafy June, And awed the stars, that they hid from view, In the sky's vast bosom, the vaulted blue. Away, away from the present life, I tnrned my thoughts, its joy. Its strife, Aud strove to read, in the beauteous night, A page the future would bring to light. The katy-dids chanted their ceaseless song; My head dropped low on my hand ere long, The wsvering shadows were lost to view, The bright moon-Light and the starless bloe. Instead of the katy-dids, chanting shrill, A thousand voices, o'er vale and dill. In words my spirit could well divine. Were singing the dreams of our4'7s." Perhaps 'twas a siscer's anxious care, That tuned the harps of the unseen choir, That around aoout me rose and fell, Sweef melody that I loved so well. Be that as it msy, I only know.

While a plow-boy, bashful, Mushing, Draws the old moss-covered bucket, dashing, sjiarkling from the well, As I he kissed her ueder cover Of her bonnet, timid lover! What blest memories may hover Of that kiss we may not leU, Peeping through the brizht rose-brier, And the Ivv, climbing higher O'er the porch, and through the forest-trees that grow luxuriant there.

As announced last week, the 13th Regi ment Band went to Cincinnati to take part in the big Saengerfest procession, and they won the laurels they richly deserve. There, was not much notice of them in the Cin cinnati dailies, but that can be accounted for from the fact that they wished to make no distinctions. The band occupied the third place in the procession, heading Hunt's famous Grst regiment, veral of the organizations had quite a squabble an to which should have the 13th, and our boys "did themselves proud." We have heard from several disinterest ed parties who were in the city, that our band was decidedly the finest-looking cue in the procession, and that their ninsic compared favorably with any of the other bands. They created quite a sensation, and hundreds of people inquired where ther were from, and complimented their ap pearance. Ihey must have made a favor able impression, as there are now three dilferent parties in Cincinnati correspond- in wtth them, trying to engage them for the 4;h, lb.rt.-e cheers and a tiger lor the 13th 1 Council Proceedings.
