Became of the Money and What the Board Propose to Do. THEY CANNOT PAY THE PREMIUMS, AND THE ENTRANCE MONEY IS REFUNDED. It is pretty generally understood through out the county by this time, that the Highland County Stock and Agricultural S ciety is defunct, or in other words, "busted up." It is knocked clear off its pins, is it were, and the Board !iro t'uized mid hardly know what has happened. The crisis cuiue on Friday evening, but it was lot jeuer.tlly known uutil Saturday inornin;;, when the treasurer refused to pay the premiums. Not a penny of the premiums has yet been paid, aud in nil probability will not be. As is well under stood, the Society has been in debt ever since ita orgsniz itiou, aud "that's what's the matter." The facts, as neur as we have been able to gather them, from reli able sources, pre about as follows: Last year the Treasurer borrowed 700 from the Citizens' National Back, to pay premiums, for which ho was individually responsible, and the first $7l)0 of this year's receipts was used to liquidate that claim. Besides this, the Society liorrowed $700 more of Dr. Noble, to pay the inter est on thoir notes, and the next $700 went to pay that. Mr. J. S. Black also had a judgment against the Society for $-47, and in order to Recnre it he went out to the Fair Grcunds Fridfly afternoon with a constable, and levied on the money drawer, obtaining $133. Mr. Richard Shoefstall, the assistant Treasurer, slipped out of the main oflico while Mr. Black w as tapping the till, and took the money from the drawer of the other office and carried it around in his trousers' pockets the balance of the afternoon, to keep Mr. Black from getting it. Nothing daunted joy this uiovo, Mr. Black went out Saturday morn ing and attached the dishes and everything movable in the dining hall, and will no doubt succeed iu getting his money. These three items account for something over fl.'OO of the receipts, which wan nbont the amount of money taken in at the (,ate, and whsn the Treasurer made a calculation he discovered that he only had about thirty-five cents left with which to pay the premiums, so he decided not to pay any of them. When it became generally known Satur day morning, that the premiums were not being paid, those who had premiums awarded them naturally got very angry. Horsemen, who bad been he. all week, and were depending on their premium money, did not have enough to ti'ke them home, and of couise there was some tall squealing. Secretary WaddeJI refunded the entrance money in the speed ring, and uve the horsemen orders for their premiums, but tLe Treasurer could not cash them, and they were worth about as mnch as blank psper. It had been decided to hold the Fair over Saturday, but the horsemen had had enough racing when they found the Board could not pay, and by noon the grounds were deserted. As soon as the news be came generally known in the city, those having claims against the Association hur ried them in, and several of them have sued the company. A News reporter has been trying to get at the bottom of the thing in order. to give the straight of the matter to the public, but the Board are rather reticent and don't want to talk much. They lay the whole trouble to the small receipts of this year, and say if they had betn anything like w hat thejiwere in '78, they could have paid the premiums, besides liquidating the two $700 claims. They also say that thevhad made arrangements to borrow a sum of money for five years, sufficient to pay all their debts, and were culv waiting to see how they came out this year, to see how much they would need. The above is the status of the case, as far as we have been able to learn, and if it is any satisfaction to the public, they are welcome to it. The Board are certainly in an unpleasant predicament, and have placed themselves in a position to be talked about. All kinds of charges are made against them, such as lining their Kckets, stealing the money, Ac, but we think they are unjust, as all the members of the Board are honest and responsible gent'emen, who will no doubt do what is right. Besides, according to their state ment, there is no money to steal, if they were so dishonest, and such charges should not be made. The Association is organized ms a Stock Company, and the members are of course individually liable for the debts, which will, no doubt eventually be paid. The Board had a meeting Monday even ing, and are now engaged iu preparing a statement fur the public, to show what has become of their money, their exact indebt edness, etc., which will be published in the News next week, and we think the public should wait and give them an opportunity to arrange their affairs before they are condemned. They do not yet know the exact amount of their receipts or expenses, but are willing to explain everything, and we are confident they will act honorably in the matter. GIVE US GAS! A Cry from the Citizens of West South Street. Last week we inquired in the News why South street could not be furnished with the ten extra lamps not in use, and to day (Tuesday), we are informed that the Light Committee are locating five posts on East South street, and giving the west side the cold shoulder. The citizens of that quarter won't stand this, and are of the opinion that it is an outrage. West South street has no light at ail, though Council man Cooper, who is a member of the Li'ht Committee, has applied for it several times, when he was only laughed at. The locating of the posts o:i the East side is Wing done without Mr. Cooper's consent, tr even his knowledge, and there is no record of the Committee being authorized to do so on the minutes of the Council. A petition is being got up for gas on West South street, which will be in circu lation in a few days, and there is going to be trouble if the wishes of the tax -payers of that quarter of the city are not re garded. Mr. Harry Mason had gone this week with his rr oners, to the Chillicothe Fair. Mr. L. D. Hunt, manager cf the Julia A. Hunt Combination, waa in the city to day, and called at the News office. His trouie consists of fifteen persons and they will open the seasou next Tbursdty even ing at South Cherleston, O. Mr. Hunt has decided to uiuke his engagement here one week instead of four nights. He will open with "Frou Frou," and "Fan-Lou wiil be repeated.

Complete List of Premiums Awarded, &c. The third annual Fair of the Highland county Stock and Agricultural Society was held in this city last week, and as far as attendance is concerned, might be called a success. It commenced on Tuesday and continued over Friday. The weather dur ing the w hole four days was all that could be desired. On Monday the rain poured down in torrents, but it cleared oft" during the night, and although the track was too wet to use on Tuesday, the first day, it was in excellent condition afterwards. The racing was rather better than usual, but if had not been, what would have been the attractions at the Fair? The displays in all departments, except poultry, were the poorest we have ever seen at a county Fair, and unless something is done to make the general public, outside of the horsemen, take an interest in the Fairs, they cannot be a success. The display in the Floral Hall was very meagre, and had it not been for the dis play of flowers brought out on the third day, it would have been the laughing-stock of every one. There seemed to be an im mense vacancy in the Hall, and on enter ing one would be stared at by the white washed boards, which should have been concealed by displays of our business men, ladies, Ac. The display of cattle, lings and sheep was also far inferior to the two preceding Fairs, and that of horses not exhibited for speed, was also below the standard. In short, the Fair was little else than a trot- ing and running meeting, or "Agricultural IIoss Trot." Below we give the result of The Races. WEDNESDAY—SECOND DAY. On this day about 1,500 people were in attendance. The first race was the three minute trot, mile heats, three in five, for a purse of $200, divided into three moneys. There were six starters, "Baby Mine," owned by C. W. Story, of Chillicothe; "Trojan Belle," owned by II. J. Ritter, of Tippecanoe City, Ohio; "Cloud," by J. JS. Atwood, of Ripley; "Romp," by Dr. Grace, Chillicothe; "Moonstone," by J. G. Wilson, of Hamilton ; and "Enehantiesa Medium," by S. H. Ofrut, of Paris, Ky. The race was a good one, several of the horses being evenly matched. It was won by "En chantress" in three straight heats, in 2:41 J; 2:42 and 2:40j, "Trojan Belle" taking sec ond money and "Cloud" third. "Baby Mine" was distanced iu the first heat. Next came a hurdle race of a mile dash, over four hurdles four feet high, for a purse of $75, divided. There were only two starters, "Index," ow ned by Morg. Mace, of Chillicothe, and "Pat," by Harry Mason, of Ilillsboro. "Index" won with verv lit tle efi'ort, in 2.C1. The race was rather a tame one, the horses clearing the hurdles once and then knocking them over and running through the gaps. THURSDAY—THIRD DAY. The attendance Thursday afternoon was very fair, about 4,000 persons being present. The first race was the 2:."2 trot, mile heats, three in five, for a purse of $250, divided into three moneys. There were our start ers, ''Dubois Cadmus," owned by C. O Stevens, Washington C. H.; "flirt," by- Henry Morris, of Mansfield, O.; "Harker," by Sam. Harker, of Columbus, and "Lady Greer, by N. Harrold, of Mt. Vernon. The race was won by "Flirt" in four heats, time 2:37, 2:37i, 2:3S, 2:3SJ. "Harker" took second money and "Lady Greer" third. The next race was running, half-mile heats, two in three, for a purse of $100, divided into two moneys. There were four starters, "Tutor," owned by George Carston, of Spring Station, Ky.;"Lightfoot" by Clem Beachy, of Ibanon; "Sparkle," by Harry Mason, of Ilillsboro; and "Jack Mace," by J. Woods, of Sabin.i. "Jack Mace" won the race in three heats, in 531, 53 and 54 seconds, "Tudor" taking second money. The other two horses were sent to the stables after the second heat, accord ing to rules, not having won a heat. The last race was a mile and a half dash for j, purse of $200, divided into two moneys. There were four starters, "Wir- ter," owned by Dr. Grace, of Chillicothe; "Jack Mace," by J. "Woods, of Sabina ; "In dex," by Morg. Mace, of Chillicothe, and "Pat," by Harry Mason, of Ilillsboro. The race was won by "Pat," but the 'judges decided that it was a dead heat be tween "Pat" and "Index." The decision caused great indignation among the spec tators, who declared it an outrage. "Pat" won the race by fully a head, and Mr. Mace, the owner of "Index," gave it up as the horses came in. The judges were W. M. Pierce, of Newark, Mr. Peddicord, of Georgetown, and Major Higgins, of New Vienna. Pierce and Peddicord were in favor of the dead heat, but Major Higgins objected, and left the stand when the de cision was rendered. The race was then run over again and "Index" won ; time, first heat 2:491, second, 2:53. Mr. Mason was generally blamed for consenting to run the heat over again, and should have stood out for first money. He would have been sustained by the crowd, and would probably have gotten his rights. The de cision was one of the most unjust we have ever seen in a judges' stand, and was a dis grace to the Fair. FRIDAY—FOURTH DAY. The attendance Friday afternoon was the largest of the week, and the crowd was estimated at fully 8,000 people. The first race was the 2:43 trot, mile heats, three in five, for a purse of $200, divided into three moneys. There were seven staners, as follows: "Ben Butler," owned by James Clark, of Ilillsboro, "Trojan Belle," by H. J. Ritter, of Tippecanoe City; "Cily Girl," by E. G. Bowles, of Sa bina ; Baby Mine," by C. W. Story, of Chillicothe; "Dock," by Clem Beachy, of Lebanon; "Enchantress Medium," by S. II. Oll'ut, of Paris, Ky., and "Cloud," by J. S. Atwood, ol Ripley. Before starting, a protest was entered against "Enchant ress Medium," claiming that she was in eligible for the race, on the ground that she had a better record than 2:45. Mr. OH ut was called into the stand and sworn by a Notary Public, and having answered the questions of the judges satisfactorily, he was allowed to start in the race under protest. After the first half mile he gave up his position and stopped his horse ou the outside of the track, but started again and came in close to the winner. After this heat, which was won by "Ben Butler," the betting was ill favor of "Enchantress Me dium," at odds against the field, but she was ruled off the track for foul driving be fore the second heat. The race was won by "Baby Mine" in four heats, in 2:33, 234J, 2:30? and 2:33, "Ben Butler" taking second money, "Cloud" third. "Baby Mine" is a green trotter, having never been on the track until this summer, and her time is remarkable. She has been in the hands of Dr. Strait, and Mr. Story divided the money she won between him and the driver. He does not intend to put her on the track for a racer, but after she gets her best record, he will use her for a roadster. Mr. Story is a jierfeet gentle man, and will not lower himself to sell out a race or resort to trickery to win. He made many friends here, and his little mare will make her mark if she is prop erly trained. The second race was the great 2:26 trot for a purse i f $300, divided into three moneys, mile heats, three in five. There were five starters, "Dan Howell," owned by Janus Clark, of Ilillsboro; "Flirt," by Henry Morris, Mansfield, O.; "Aleck S.," by N. Harrold, of Mt. Vernon; "Ancient Order Boy," by W. M. Pierce, of Newark; and "Hai ker," by Sam Harker, of Colum bus. Five heats were trotted Friday even ing, w hen darkness put an end to the con test, and still Ihe race was not decided. Two heats were won by "Dan Howell," two by "Ancient Order Boy," and one which was won by "Ancient Order Boy" was given to "Aleck S." on account of foul driving. The race was finished Sat urday morning, and "Dan Howell" won; time 2:32, 2:33, and 2:40j. This so-called 2:26 trot was one of the thinnest specimens of "jockeying" we have ever seen. The time made just previous in the 2:45 troi, was better than that made in the 2:20, and everybody was satisfied that the race was purposely so managed that the best horse did not win. It was apparent to thespeciators that either "An cient Order Boy," or "Aleck S." could trot all around "Dan Howell," and either could have easily driven to the front, had they been put to their speed. Why they were not, we don't pretend to say; we only state the facts. The last race on Friday was running, mile heats, best two in three, for a purse of $200, divided into three moneys. There were five starters, "Index' of Chillicothe; "George Knighthood," owned by S. W. Jutz, of Blue Ball, O." "Wirier," of Chilli cothe, "Moonlight," of Sabina, and "Pat," of Ilillsboro. The race was won by "Index," in three heats, in l:.r.0, 1:50 and 1:531, "Knighthood" second. "Moonlight" was distanced in the second heat, and after the second heat "Pat" and "Wirier" were sent to the stables, according to the rules, not having won a heat. At the close of the Fair on this day it was announced that it would be continued over Saturday, when there would be a free-for-all trot, pace and running races, but they did not come off, and the Fair was de clared ended at noon, when the 2:26 trot was finished. The reason why it was not continued was because the Board was iu financial trouble, and would not pay any premiums, and the horsemen would not race for nothing. The financial troubles do not belong properly to the Fair report and are noticed in another column. Premiums Awarded. Below we give a complete list of the premiums awarded : HORSES.

Not a Penny Stolen in Town, but Several Robberies in the Country. Free Fights, Picked Pockets, Drunks and Disorderlies. We mentioned last week that our little city was full of thieves and fakirs, who usually follow Fairs to rob and prey upon the community, but thanks to our very able police force, they were so closely watahed that their depredations were only trifling. The police force consisted of sixteen picked men, all under direction of Policeman Willett, who patroled the town night and day, Mr. Willett remaining on duty eighteeu hours out of each day to direct hem. So well did they do their work, that there waa not a single robbery within the corporation, and the thieves were com pelled to resort to the country for plunder. In all there were about fifteen arrests dur ing the week, most ot which were lor drunkenness and disorderly conduct, and a few for fighting. The following cases were reported to us by Policeman Willett : Last Thursday afternoon, while the family were absent at the Fair, Mr. Dud Arthur's residence, on Clear creek, was broken into and about $40 worth of jewel ry and clothing taken from a bureau drawer, and the bureau broken to pieces with a hatchet. No clue to the thieves. On Wednesday, three white men and a negro attempted to break into Mr. Jake Manker's residence, about three miles north of town, on the New Vienna pike, but were seen by Mr. James Fenner, a neighbor, and frightened away, not, how ever, u.itil they had ste-Ien a quantity of clothes from the line. Mr. Eli Glascock's residence, about four miles south of town, on the Newmarket pike, was entered through a kitchen win dow last Thursday, while the family were absent, and a new suit of clothes stolen, worth about $25, with which the thieves escaped. Lat Thursday evening, about 9 o'clock, a man named Hasson, from Maysville, Ky., got into a fight with Dan. Welch and son, in front of the Kramer House, and it is reported gave them both a good thresh ing. Dan., Jr. called on some of his friends for assistance, and Jake White and Bob Jackson, colored, joined iu the melee with some others, whose names we could not learn. They soon made it too warm for Hasson. who took to his heels and ran out Walnut street, followed by the Welch's aud their friends, and about a hundred swetators. The Kentnckian stopped on Walnut street in front of Mr. Ellifritz's residence, where a desperate light occurred, there being about six to one against him. Mr. Dick Shoeffstall inter fered and protected the stranger, until Sheriff Newell arrived and took him in charge. The mob were greatly incensed at the stranger, and hheritt Jsewell was compelled to draw his pistol to keep them hack. Some one fired a pistol in the air during the fight, when there was some tall scattering. The strangers wounds were dressed at Dr. Shepherd's office, and proved not serious, but very numerous and pain ful. Dan. Welch and son were arrested and fined $0 each for fighting, for which they gave security, but the stranger was not arrested. A fight occurred in the Buckeye saloon last Friday, between a stranger named Ellis and John McCarthy. The stranger bruised John up considerably and jumped the towu. McCarthy was arrestedbut proved that he was not to blame for the row and was discharged. Unsuecesbful attempts were made last week to enter the resiliences of Messrs. J. M. Boyd, II. S. Scarborough, Henry Mul lenix, J. M. Hnghey, Mrs. Jack Campbell and Mayor Beeson, all in the southern part of town. In some cases they were frightened away by the police, and in others left of their own accord. One of the Newman boys and Wm. Dunn got into a big row at the Kramer House last Saturday afternoon, which raised considerable excitement, and at tracted a large crowd, but it all ended in words, and as the police did not arrive until it was all over, there were no arrests. A man named Russ Gray, of Pricetown, had his pocket picked of f 23 at the Fair, and Mr. Levi Johnson, of this place, was also victimized to the tune of about 53 in the same manner. Frank Glenn was stopped by a stranger, near his father's residence, about dusk last Thursday evening, who attempted to rob him. Frank started into the house for a pistol, and the rascal took to his heels. CLINTON BAPTIST ASSOCIATION. Annual Meeting in Hillsboro. The Sunday School Convention of the Christian Baptist Association will meet with the Hiilsboro Baptist Church, on Fri day, Sept. 12, at 10 o'clock A.M., and hold various services till 9. 30 A. M. Saturday. At 10 A. M. Saturday the Association will open its session with an introductory ser mon from Rsv. J. H.Wilson. Association services will close Monday morning. A cordial invitation is extended to the public to attend all the exercises of the Convention and Association . Some two hundred Messengers from the churches are expected to be in attendance, and any of onr friends, who are willing to entertain one or more of these Messengers daring their sojourn with ns, will please report early to T. G. Hoggard, Esq., and receive the hearty thanks of the Baptist Church. The Best Town in Ohio. Capt. Andy Barry, Chief Engineer of the Waynesville & Columbus Railay, squar ed his chair, lit a cigar, and after placing his feet at the proper elevation, remarked as follows: "It's no use talking, fellows, Hiilsboro is the best town in the State. It has the squares! lot of boys, the handsom est set of ladies, and the quietest lot of sa loons. It can turn out the largest crowds and keep the best order, and get up the biggest Fair and have the handsomest and most intelligent-looking set of people at tend it. It can support the best preachers and churches, it's merchants have more style and a better class of goods, and it can talk less and do more than any town in Ohio." The Captain has sighted through the transit at a great many towns, and brought them down to a focus, and knows whereof he speaks. The next time he vis its home he will be toasted by the boy sure. On our Most Distant Frontiers. As in onr busiest and most populous cities of the seaboard and ieterior, Hostetter's Stomach Bitters is pre-eminently popnlar. Wherever civilization plants its foot on this continent, thither the great tonic soon finds its way. Nor is this surprising, for it is the medicine of all others best adapt ed to the wants of the Western emigrant, be he miner or agriculturist. It is an in comparable remedy for the diseases to which he is most subject, and which are likble to be brought on by a change of cli mate, hu'dship, exposure, unaccustomed air and diet, and miasmatic atmosphere and wat'5r. Among these are all disorders of the stomach and bowels, rheumatic ail ments, and malarious fevers, for all of which Hostettcr's Bitters ia a certain spe cific. A course of the Bitters before de parting for the new field of labor, or on arriving, will have the effect of preventing the evils for which it is such a signal rem edy. septwt To Bilious and Ague Sufferers.

The late rains did great good to the corn and potatoes. Soil is in a good condition lor plowing stnee the rain. Another surprise! It occurred on Mr. Jacob Shafer's 53d birthday, on the 2tith of August. We have been informed that the new church on the Danville and Fairview road will be called theChristian Liberty church, and will be dedicated in a few days. The new walia of the Mt. Ziea eharch are now finished, and will under roof. The Danville camp-meeting closed Aug. 24th, conducted by Rev. Bingman, as sisted by Rev. Van Home, of Cleveland. There were two additions. Another meeting commenced on the campgrounds, Aug. 2!Hh,and will continue over two Sundays. It will be held by the colored people, under the charge of the Bev. Benj. Smith, of Camp Dennison. Mr. John A. Krupp has been attending the Fairs at Greenfield and Sabina, and has taken thepreniium on his fine chickens. Mr. Samuel Wilkin attended the Green field Fair with some of his fine Berkshire hogs and took the premiums. We think Col. Cook is badly mistaken about Joe Shafer casting the vote of Hamer tp. for Ewing by acclamation. Joe may vote as he pleases, but Hamer will give her full Republican vote solid for Foster.

He seemed to be getting in his work in good style. 4th quarterly meeting M. E. church wan held at New Petersburg last Saturday and Sunday. We would like to hear "Clodhopper's" method of raising potatoes. We like his ideas of raising wheat, and take it for granted that he knows something about Kitatoes. It is reported that there will be another Spargur Reunion. "Hurrah for Charley Foster!" IU;v. Joseph Kelso, of the M. E. church, from near South Salem, will preach at this place Sunday, Sept. 7th, at 10 o'clock. He is an able minister, and all will be weil paid who hear him. K. O. S. Celebration at Buford. The S. S. Celebration at Moberly'g grove, near Buford, Aug. 21st, waa a com plete success, far exceeding the most san guine expectations of its managers and projectors. At an early bonr the people began lo pour into Buford from all parts of the country, nntil by 9 o'clock the throng be came so dense that the Marsha's abandon ed the idea of forming them into one grand procession, and permitted all but the S. S. delegations to go forward to the gronnds, about a mile northwest of Bnford. At 10 o'clock the procession moved forward, headed by the Mourytown Cornet Band, and the magnificent delegation wagon of the Buford Schools, containing 40 young ladies. Then followed a grand train of wagons, carriages and bugles, containing the Sunday Schools of Buford, number ing 120; Sicily, 130; Maple Grove, 7ti; Hollowtown, SO; total 40 scholars and teachers. Arrived upon the ground, the various Schools were assigned places in front of the stand, which was handsomely decorat ed with evergreens, and the meeting was called to order by the chairman, Mr. W. A. Cumberland, who briefly addressed the Schools and then announced the following programme of exercises for the morning: 1st, Music by the Band. 2d, Hymn, "Coronation," by the audi ence. 3d, Prayer by Dr. Shockey. 4th, Address by C. A. Matthews, Esq. 5th, Song by each of the 8. Schools, separately. At the conclnsion of the morning exer cises the congregation were dismissed for dinner, with which ail seemed to be boun tifully supplied. At 1 o'clock the vast multitude reassem bled around the Stand, to listen to an ad dress by the Key. W. D. Moore, of New Vienna. Mr. Moore's address was able, eloquent, and instructive, and held the large audience in close attention for near ly an hour. At the conclusion of his ad dress, the Rev. I. H. DeBruin, of Win Chester, was introduced, but being in poor health his address was very brief, but in teresting, and elicited close attention. At 4 o'clock the congregation were dis missed and dispersed to their homes, with happy hearts and smiling faces. The man agers deserve the greatest praise for the able manner in which they discharged the duties that devolved upon them, but the highest meed of praise is due the young ladies of Buford and vicinity, who did all in their power to make the occasion a grand success. ARGUS. Lunbeck's Ford, Ross Co. Deab Nk.ws : Our Bridge company came here some two weeks ago, to bniid the abutments of the new bridge across Paint creek, at this point, and are board ing with Mr. Simeom Tavlor and his good wife, who make a most excellent landlord and landlady. The ntigLbors, both in Koss and Highland, have all been exceed ingly kind, and have the thanks of the company. The rock for the bridge &bntment9 are nearly all quarried and hauled, and if the weather pro-yes favorable, the abutments will be fiuished in about two weeks. Crops here are good, wheat especially. Corn has come out wonderfully since the late rains, but here, as elsewhere, it has fallen down badly. No man is held in higher esteem in this part of the oountry than Mr. Ed. Pierson, of Greenfield, our candidate for county treasurer, and the only regret among his friends hers in Ross county is, that he lives in Highland and they can t have the privilege of voting for him. It has been rumored, by some designing persona no donbt, thnt Mr. Jacob Grim, who lives in this neighborhood, would "go back" on our ticket, but let me aay to your many readers that they need have no fears on that score, as I can assure them he will most heartily support the whole .Republican ticset. lours, as ever, ON THE WING. The Boss Drink of the World. An invention is now being introduced in the culinary department, which pro mises to revolutionize the old method of Boiling Coffee. It is simply an invention, which combines the elements of Simplicity, Practicability, Utility, and Economy. With its aid the entire strength of the Coffee Berry is Extracted, and the Liquid comes from the pot as clear as Red Wine, without the clarifying substance and with all the rich aroma saved and preserved. From its sniieriority over all other meth ods of making coffee, it has lieen appro priately named "The Boss," and the pure delicious coffee produced by it. we, after tasting, endorse it as the "Boss" drink the world. Messrs. Fish & Korte, of Arcade, Cincinnati, Ohio, are the manu facturers, and are employing Agents all over the State, and we would advise those who are looking for a lucrative busi ness to address them. We do not believe in medicine for child ren, but we do believe in Dr. Bull's Baby Syrup, and assert that no family should without it. NEW MARKET.
