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,

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 ;

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
Resolutions of the Democratic Central
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

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

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

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

Resolved, Cth. That copies of these res

Farmers, Look Out!
LYNCHBURG, June 16, 1879.
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
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.

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
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.

Full Report of all the Exercises.
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:
Priest's March Athalia, Mendelssohn.
Misses Ewing aud Hart.
Sweet Tears Duett, Pacine. Misses

Columbia Essav, Mateie I. Ramsey,
This Dear Land Solo and Chorus, Miss
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
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
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
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.

Recitations, by Misse3 Nannie Pugsloy
and Maggie Ferris.
Song, Duett Misses Millar and Ram
sey, class of "79.
Retrospect Miss Cora E. Gordon, class
of '74.
Song "O, Fair Dove," Miss Ramsey.
Prophecy Mrs. D. S. Ferguson, class
of '78.
Waltz Lucy B. Smith.
Song "Sing, Sweet Bird," Mrs. Ulric
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
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
Twenty years less one, have gone, since
our-first members went from thin school of
their girlhood, to the lessons, problems, es

gress, disappointments, trials, or success,
ia their second school, our historian must

'Taa Nbws."
We sing of the beautiful blessings of home.
W' here vvil h music is blended the rose's rare bloom,
V'here love Is the scepter that's wieided in owgijt,
aj it shines from bright eyes like the jewels of
That shrine of devotion, the altar of home.
Our thoughts round it cilng, though oar footsteps
may roam
From pole to eqnafor, from broad sea to sea;
Aud, Woman, its dame is kept burning by thee!
The queen of the honse-hold, the woman whose
Will gleam through the years and beam bright as
the white.
The love-Ii-ht had dropped from the eye soft and
And, Mart, 'twas that they whispered of yoa!
A song was borne on the midnight air.
But its words 1 caonot tell,
I know tbey were pure, and rich, and fair,
And I kuow I loved them weU.
They seemed to come from the heart's deep fount,
And solemnly flow along.
They Beemed to soar to the topmost mount,
And all the whole world wifn song.
And ever anon I heard a name.
Flung out On the miduignt air.
Of one we had set apart for fame.
With ita briiiiant, uncertain glare,
Te: she chose not fame, for the laurel crown.
The gods would fain bestow,
Bad unregreUully been cast down,
And the soul was all a;ow.
All aglow with the richer light.
That comes from tr. ; aun a bright rsvm.
When we "waik by fauh and not by sigut,"
in God's appointed wava.
And Maooib may sail on the ocean's tide,
L'nkuown to the world she leaves.
Bat the gates of Heaven are open wide.
To the nearer of golden sheaves.
.Silently sack the moon to rest.
The stars shone down on the green earth's breast,
And seemed her children in charge to keep,
As I wakened out of my dreammg sleep.
The night had vanished, the dayiilu' glare
W'as round and about me everywhere,
Wnen I strove the midnight dream to bring
Again before me, its songs to sing ;
But if it be false, or if it oe true.
Is all unknown to me aud to you,
Aud life must bring to us day by day.
The littie events that shall mark its way.
Aud I do not ask that ihe coming liie.
My Bisters, shaii be devoid of strife.
But that, when its iils aud its toils are past.
The victory euaii be yours at last. M. i. T.
Our Band in Cincinnati.
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-
wtth them, trying to engage them for
the 4;h,
