Murder in Brown County.
Mr. C'iyburn Cropper, who for a year or

the Russellville Baud, which was giving a
festival at a school house. He went to
Collins while he was eating ice cream with
some ladies, and asked him to play. Col
lins became enraged, a quarrel ensued, and
Cropper knocked him down, when Collins
rose and deliberately shot him in the breast.
Roth young men are about "'J years of
age, and had alaays been good friends.

doubt the cause of the tragedy. He gave
himself up to the authorities, and was
Committed to jail to await his examination.
A False Report.
A report w as circulated on the streets
last Simday that Conductor Joe Ambrose
and all the other train hands on the C. A
M. Ry. were intoxicated, when the acci
dent occurred, which resulted in the death
Chailcy M-Fadden. We received a call
from Mr. Ambrose on Monday, who pro
nounces the report a base slander, and de
clares that no liquor had been used by any
of the employees during the evening. He
says ho can prove the falsity of the charge
by the best citizens of Sardinia, and offers
the following named gentlemen amoDg
others, as witnesses, who were present at
the inquest, and are willing to testify that
the charge is false, viz: Messrs. Frank
Coyne, Dan lljllaud, Cum. Campbell, Nat
DeBruiu, Ellis Pence and Alex. M. Waters.

THE FAIR.
A Call for a Meeting of the Stockholders.
The dtockholders of the Highland Coun
ty Stock and Agricultural Society are re
quested to meet at City Hall, on Saturday
evening next, September the 20th, at 7
o'clock, to consult with reference to the
affairs of the Association. All stockhold
ers are earnestly requested to be present.
C. T. POPE, President.
In this connection we w ish to urge upon
the stockholders the importance of taking
tiime action to sustain the Fair. The
three Fairs held under the present or
ganization have cleared more than $3,000
over and above their current expenses, and
had it not been for the heavy debt hanging
over the Association for fixing up the
grounds, they would have been able to de
clare a dividend. The premiums would
all have been paid this year, had it not
been for the old debt hanging over the As
sociation, and if its all airs can he recon
structed and properly managed hereafter,
it can he made a financial success, besides
benefiting the town and county, and es
pecially our agricultural interests. There
is a disposition among the inemlitrs of the
Board to pay more attention hereafter to
agricultural and stock displays, and we
trust the stockholders will come to the
front and do what they can to adjust mat
ters on a sound basis. The experience of
the Hillsboro Fair Association of this
year has been the experience of a large
number of similar associations throughout
the State, which have at first been embar
rassed, but afterwards, with good manage
ment, became paying institutions, and
there is no reason why ours cannot 4)0
likewise. Let every stockholder attend
the meeting next Saturday evening, and
consider the best plan of adjusting the
troubles.
OUR MILITIA ABROAD.
How They Acquitted Themselves at
Cincinnati.
The Hillsboro Battalion, which took
part in the big procession attending the
opening of the Cincinnati Exposition on
Wednesday of last week, made a fine ap
pearance, and Ilillsboroites in the Queen
City on that day were not ashamed of
them. The Battalion consisted of the
Scott Dragoons, Noble Light Guard and
loth Regiment Baud, "all under Command
of Lieut. Gd. Picaril. On arriving at
Cincinnati the battalion marched up to
Fourth street, eastward to Sycamore street,
and thence to the Union Bethel on Front
street, where the boys were furnislwd with
five meals and one night's lodgings by the
Exposition managers. The accommoda
tions were very good, and the boys were
well satisfied.
At precisely 12 o'clock the battalion
formed again and marched to Ninth and
Freeman streets, where the procession was
formed. Our Battalion was given the
second place in the pr4cession, next to the
First Regiment, and with the exception of
about fifteen of the Columbus Cadets ours
were the only companies in dress uniforms.
'e will not attempt to describe the pro
cession, which has already been fully done
in the Cincinnati dailies. It was a mam
moth affair and occupied two hours and a
half in passing a given point. Every
body was inquiring "what band that was,"
"where those companies were from," &c.,
and two or three times on Fourth street,
the battalion was cheered and applauded.
The march was the longest our boys have
ever made, hut they stood it very well.
They started at 12:10, and it was not until
5:4 J that they broke ranks at the Exposi
tion Park.
Although the boys received no puffs in
the Cincinnati papers, some of the oldest
military men in the city declared that our
battalion made the finest appearance in
the procession, and we are just about con
ceited enough to think they did. The re
ports in the daily papers were mainly giv
en up to notices of the wagons and beer
kegs, while the military, which was ac
knowledged to be tlte feature of the pro
cession, were passed by with a mere men
tion, anil without distinction. The hoys
were given free passes into the Exposition,
and saw all that was to he seen.
The battalion did not return in a body,
and as their railroad tickets were go4d to re
turn until Saturday night, the hoys were
coming home all week. They all had a
good time, and declare it to be the best
trip they have ever taken. They saw the
sights of the city and as fast as they got
"broke" returned home.
MORE NARROW GAUGE TROUBLES.
The Timber for the Large Trestle Attached,
and the Work Stopped.
In last week's News we Btated that the
large trestle for the narrow-gauge, over
the big hollow near the engine Louse,
would be put up iu a few days. Mr. C.
A. Campbell, the contractor, had commen
ced putting it np, when ho was compelled
to stop work on account of an attahement
being placed on the timber by Amen, Gregg
& Co., who have a claim against him for
i-lbr!, transferred to them by Mr. Tom De
Brum, of Winchester. A hearing of the
case was had before Esq Stoddard on
Monday and the attachment was sustained,
but Mr. Campbell has given notice of an ap
peal. He cannot pay the claim, ("which is
an old one for material used in a contract
on the C. t E. road)until he gets the money
for the trestle. The work will probably be
delayed for some time unless the Company
helps him out.

SAD ACCIDENT.
MR. CHAS. McFADDEN INSTANTLY
KILLED AT SARDINIA,
BY FALLING BETWEEN THE CARS.
Last Sunday morning our citizens were
shocked to learn that the first fatal acci
dent had occured on the narrow-gauge, re
sulting in the instant death of Mr. Chas.
MeFaddon, a brakeman. The particulars
of the sad affair, as gathered by a News
reporter, are as follows :
About 8 o'clock Saturday evening, just
after the C. & E. train had left the station
at Sardinia, the train on the C. A M.
backed up to the station from the switch,
to unload freight. The night was very
dark and it was raining. Chas. Fenner,
another brakeman, went to the switch and
opened it, Charley McFadden at the same
time getting on a flat car at the rear of the
train to let off the brakes, which were set.
Fenner gave the engineer the signal with
hie lantern to back up, and shortly after
the train started he noticed the cars rise
and fall as though they were passing over
something. Looking under the train, he
saw some clothing ami immediately called
to the engineer to stop, which was done
instantly, and Charley was found under
the rear truck of the engine, dead, both
lower limbs being broken, one arm broken,
several deep cutson his head, and his body
badly crushed. He was carried into the
station, where an inquest was held before
F.iq. Foike, and a verdict returned in ac
cordance with the facts.
No one saw him fall, but it is supposed
that he fell while climbing from the flats
to the top of the box car to let off the
brake, and that he was so stunned by the
fall that he could make no outcry and do
nothing to save himself. Engineer Coyne
was deeply grieved at the sad accident,
and was so sick that he had to be taken to
the hotel and put to bed. An investiga
tion of the matter was held by the officials
of the road here on Sunday, and it was
found that no one was to blame. The re
mains arrived here at 3 o'clock Sunday
morning, and were placed in charge of
Undertaker Holmes.
Mrs. McFadden, Charley's mother, who
was visiting at Chillieothe, was notified by
telegram, and arrived Monday morning.
Arrangements were made for the funeral,
which was held at Mr. Benj. Chaney, jun
ior's, residence, on East Walnut street, at
2 o'clock Monday afternoon, Revs. Kendall
and McSurely officiating. Mr. Chaney is
a brother-in-law of the ileceascd.
Charley was a member of the Scott
Dragoons, and was burieil with military
honors, the Dragoons, Noble Light Guard
and Band all turning out under command
of Col. Picard. The funeral was a large
one, and the entire community express the
most heartfelt sympathy for Mrs. McFad
den and her two daughters, in their sad
and sudden bereavement.
Charley McFadden was well known bv
all our citizens and was likul byeveryone.
He was a No. 1 railroad man, and we are
informed by Conductor Ambrose, that he
was a general favorite with all the employ
ees of the road and the people along the
line. He was 32 years old last July. He
always took a great pride in being on time
at his post, and in his death the Company
have lost a man whose place will not be
easilv filled.
THE HUNT COMBINATION.
Their Opening at Music Hall Monday
Evening.
The Julia A. Hunt Combination opened
a week's engagement in Music Hall last
Monday evening, w ith the "Two Orphans,"
which was 'endered to 'he satisfaction of
all present. The house was not a large
one, but still it was very fair for the
first evening, and everything indicates that
their engagement here will be a success.
At the first appearance of Mrs. Hunt as
Louise, the blind girl, she was greeted with
a hearty round of applause, showing that
she is still a favorite with the Hillsboro
people. She is as handsome and sprightly
as ever, and captivates the audience at
once. She was supimrted by Mr. Giles A.
Shine as Pierre, the cripple, and Chevalier
De Vaudry, (he sustaining both charac
ters) and by an excellent company through
out. The characters of Jacques, the out
law, Picard, Henriotte and La Frochard,
were all exceedingly well rendered, but
that of Henriotte deserves special mention.
It was sustained by Miss Helen Edwards,
an amateur, who has never been on the
stage until this month. She displays de
cided talent, and many compliment!! wete
paid her, many supposing her to be an ex -
perienced actress.
Mr. Shine made a very favorable im
pression, and is a fine actor. In the last
act, where he defends the orphans against
his brutal brother, he brought down tiie
house with a storm of applause.
The company, we think, is an improve
ment on that of last year, and we can
heartily recommend them to the public.
To-night (Tuesday), Shakspeare's famous
tragedy of "Romeo and Juliet" will be

Specially Reported for the News.
Tho numerous friends and relations of
Joseph Cochran, E-.q., of Newmarket aud

birthday anniversary, by calling at his
handsome new residence, to the nuniticr
of about three hundred, all armed with
baskets of good things; and among the
many other nice things, I must speak of
the very beautiful and rare cake brought
by Mrs. Capt. Kennedy, of Sardinia, for
the occasion. It was a rare specimen of
culinary art, and this is all I can say, as I
am not versed in the language needed to
describe it.
Among the nnmber present from a dis
tance were, Hon. Nelson Earrere, Judge
Jaunt H. Thompson, Bnj. Birrere, C. S.
Bell aid wife, Henry Strain and wife, J.
W. Patterson and wife, Dr. Smith aud
wife, Mrs. S tmuol Lyle, Jr., Dr. D. Noble,
Danl. S;ott aud wife, Dr. B. F. Holmes,
wife and baby, J. 0. Sanderson and wife,
E. L. Ferris and wife; also the following
candidates for public favor, J. J. Pugshy,
J. M. Hiij,hey and John Matthews, all of
Hillsboro.
The trains from Sardinia brought quite
a number of ladies and gentlemen, includ
ing Cept. Kennedy W53. and many
others unknown to the writer. Of the im
mediate neighbors, friends and relatives
were, Michael Winkle and wife, John Coff
man and wife, D. F. Pulliman and wife,

are not now remembered.
The occasion was one not Boon to be for
gotten. The speeches of congratulation
were in good taste and full of compliments
to our excellent friend, Mr. Cochran, and
among those of particular note, were those
of Hon. Nelson Barrere, Judge James II.
Thompson and Dr. Noble. The first speak-'
cr re 'erred to his long acquaintance with
the family, their proverbial honesty, in
tegrity and Bocial standing in the commu
nity. The remarks of Mr. Thompson were
particularly happy. He said that he dif
fered with Mr. Barrere, who had not re
ferred to the question of a wife for their
host ; thanked the neighborhood and Mr.
Cochran (who is a bachelor) for the day's
enjoyment and the honor of the invitation;
and then turning to Mr. Cochran said that
he hoped on the next occasion like unto
this, one year hence, lie would find Mr.
Cochran sitting in the beautiful new par
lor of his splendid new mansion, singing
to a young wife,
4,Lassip wi' lint-white locks,
Bonnie lassie, arties lassie.
Wilt Ihou wi' me lent the florks,
Will thoa De uiy dearie, O?"
Dr. Noble's speech was more particular
ly a glowing eulogy upon the life and
character of Benj. Cochran, deceased,
biothcr of the host.
The young jiersons present and too
much praise cannot "be bestowed npon all
for hj.tr good behavior und uniform polite
ness oil the occasion enjoyed themselves
playing croquet and other amusements.
And now, to sum up, your correspondent
can ilo no less than express the opinion
that all were happy and all enjoyed them
selves, and the hope is expressed that Mr.
Cochran may have many returns.

ODD FELLOWS' DONATION.
MR. JACOB COWMAN PRESENTED
WITH $130,
Through the Generosity of Deputy G.
M. B. R. Shipp and his Associates.
About the 1st of July last, Deputy G.
M. of I. O.O. F., for Highland county,
Dr. B. R. Shipp, of Hillsboro, during his
rounds of installation of oliicers of the
subordinate Lodges of the county, met a
very worthy member of Syringa Lodge,
No. 3 12, Mr. Jacob Cowman, an aged and
worthy Odd Fellow, who is now stricken
in his old age, with inflammatary rheuma
tism, and is so badly afflicted as to be un
able to walk. He is also very poor, and
the Deputy thought he would be a fit sub
ject for the Odd Fellows of this county to
show at least one of our cardinal virtues,
to-wit : Charity. So, acting on that feel
ing of sympathy that prompts all good
Odd Fellows to act, he called a meeting of
the Past Grands and it was decided to give
Mr. Cowman a benefit on the 10th inst.
Accordingly, on that day, representa
tives of Lodges named below met in the
beautiful grove of J. W. Brady, near Cen
terfield, and with their wives, sisters, un
cles and aunts, and baskets well filled,
gathered around their table-cloths with in
vited guests, and proceeded to partake of
a bountiful repast. After all had eaten to
their heart's content, we were called to the
stand by music from the organ, performed
by Miss Littler. W. P. Hughey then de
livered an address, explaining the object
of the meeting, the beneficence of the or
der, 4&e., in fact an Odd Follow speech, and
closed by making the donation in behalf
of the order, and reading the list of con
tributions from the various Lodges, as
follows :

Many of the other Lodges in the county
wish to contribute and will do so yet, but
did not understand that the 10th inst. was the
time set for the. donation. If any ether
donations are made they will be reported
for publication .
Everybody seemed to enjoy the occasion,
especially the candidates, ail of whom
were wearing their happiest smiles. Wil
liams and Pierson were seen to shake
hands across the bloody chasm. FTughey
was hunting up his old schoot-felloics (!).
Pugsloy seemed at home, shaking hands.
In fact, it was a grand old time. Mothers
were smiling, fathers seemed glad. The
hoys well, they were hunting up some
body's sisters. The babies did not cry, and
the money was given to Bros. W. B. Lit
tler and Jos. Fultz, even without bond, so
they were happy.
After some good music, consisting of
solos, quartetts, &c, the crowd dispersed
by singing the "Closing Ode," wishing old
brother Cowman a long and happy life,
and with the best feeling for Syringa Lodge
and the hospitality of the good people of
Centcriield and neighborhood, and with
more "F. L. ii T." iu each Odd Fellow's
breast. EMERALD.
Philadelphia Wool Market.
Coates Brothers, Wool Commission Mer
chants, Philadelphia, have sent us the fol
lowing circular, which we copy for the
benefit of our readers interested in the
prices of wool :
After the issue of our circular of the
loth ultimo, the market for fleece wools
hecauns quite active and stronger, and a
considerable quautity was sold at an ad
vance of from one to two cents on the low
range of prices which had been previously
accepted. Trade is now rather quiet again,
but prces continue firm. Strictly medium
grades are already in small supply and
must continue to be scarce. Fine wools
are dull, as the larger part of the stock on
hand is held for higher figures than can
now be obtained, but there will probably
be more inquiry for tuis grade soon, as
many manufacturers are now turning on
to fine spring fabrics. Medium grades of
eomuing ana uotaine are noi in large sup
ply, and bring full figures, while coarse
combing is dull and relatively low in
price. Colorado and territory wools have
been in moderate request, except the coarse
qualities, which are mostly held at higher
prices than the competing foreign carpet
wools.
The general business of the country
seems to be improving, and, with a few ex
ceptions, the trade in all staple articles is
encouraging. We anticipate a good de
mand for wool at fair prices.

Frank Leslie's Sunday Magazine for
October
Is one of the most interesting yet issued
of this brilliant periodical. Every style
of literature is found in its pages, and it
is of the very highest standard. The
present number is even more crowded than
usual with such reading as cannot fail to
entertain and instruct, and to exercise a
beneficial effect on the reader. The editor
has reproduced, in connection with appo
site illustrations, Macaulay's elaborated
biographical and critical article on "The
Pilgrim's Progress," w hich is admitted by
critics as the best thing which has ever
been written concerning Bunyan. Anoth
er admirable article is entitled "Recollec
tions of Auld Reekie," in which the Rev.
Robert Irvine gives pleasant reminiscences
of Chalmers, Jeffrey, Wilson and others
who made Edinburg famous some fifty
vears ago. Godfrey A. Hudson, in the
paper "An African Bishop," gives a sketch
of the career of a native African who was
sold as a slave when a mere boy, captured
from a slave ship and sent to Sierra Leone,
whore he was educated, received the de
cree of D. D.. and finallv became Bishop
of Niger, in Africa. The department of
fiction contains excellent stories by popu
lar writers. The illustrated papers, de
picting the maimers, customs and aspects
of various countries, are replete with
interest and information. "Whittington
Without His Cat." gives authentic and
curious details of the life of the celebrated
Mavor of London. There are poems of
great merit by Alice Carey, Mamie Bacon,
Edwin Arnold, the editor, etc., etc.; a very
abundant miscellany, the Popular Exe
gesis, and the editor in "At Home and
Abroad'' presents a condensed survey of
what is going 011 iu the religious world,
and speaks of several topics of current
interest. The number contains 123 quarto
pagi's and over 100 illustrations. The
price of a single number is 2o cents, and
the subscription y-'i a year, prepaid.

CHILLICOTHE PRESBYTERY.
Meeting at New Market Last Week.
The Chillieothe Presbytery convened in
this place on Tuesday, Sept. 10th. As the
weather was beautiful, they came flocking
in from all directions, and wore escorted to
the church by their friends. At 2 o'clock
the house was crowded to its utmost ca
pacity. The meeting opened with prayer by
Rev. R. C. Galhreath, after which he de
livered an excellent sermon from 1st
James, 22d chapter and 25th verse. "But
be ye doers of the word, and not hearers
onlv," Ac. The sermon was well received.
At its close Rev. II. W. Biggs, of Chillieo
the, offered prayer, after which the ordi
nance of the Lord's Supper was attended
to by Revs. II. W. Biggs and W. J. Mc
Surely, of Hillsboro.
The congregation was then dismissed,
hut owing to the deep interest felt, most of
the audience remained until the close of
the meeting. The Presbytery elected S.
W.Elliott, Moderator, in the absence of
Rev. E. Grand-Girard. Rev. R. N. Adams,
of Waverly, was chosen temporary Clerk.
It was agreed that the Presbytery should
hereafter meet three times a year instead
of twice, as heretofore. Also that the
next Presbytery be held at Greenfield, on
the 2d Tuesday of April. The basiness
session closed at 6 o'clock, when a recess
was taken until 7:30.
Before the time for the evening services
the house was filled to overflowing. The
services opened with prayer by Rev. S. D.
Crothers, of Greenfield, after which Rev.
J. G. Galhreath, of New Market, preached
from Isaiah, 12th chapter and 2d verse;
"Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust
and not he afraid," &c. This being his
trial sermon, it was well prepared, and
was listened to very attentively and highly
appreciated by all.
After the service the Presbytery re
lumed business, and Rev. Biggs tendered
his resignation as stated Clerk, which was
received and a vote of thanks offered for
his services. After some other business the
Presbytery adjourned until the following
morning.
WEDNESDAY.
Long before the hour of service the
crowd was so large that the church could
not accommodate them, but still the peo
ple continued to come. The meeting wa-4
opened with religious services conducted
by Revs. McSurely, Crothers and others,
ltev. J. G. Galhreath was then examined
by the committee, which occupied about
two hours. We heard some of the older
members of the Presbytery say he passed
the best examination of any minister that
has been received for some time.
The Presbytery then proceeded to busi
ness again, until noon, when they adjourn
ed until 1:30 P. M. But the members had
not been idle all this time. They had
erected a table, from one end of their beau
tiful church-yard to the other, which was
loaded with suhstantials and luxuries of
all kinds. About 350 persons remained
on the ground and partook of an excellent
dinner. Others were entertained by peo
ple living in town. Rev. Mr. Galhreath
was presented with a large turkey by Mrs.
W. W. Robison.
By the kindness of Rev. D. Trichler,
the Baptist church was secured for the af
ternoon services, and the large and roomy
church was filled completely. The ordina
tion sermon was delivered by Rev. R. K.
Campbell, of South Salem, from the 5th
chapter of 2d Corinthians and 18th verse :
"And all things are of God,".itc. The ser
mon was well delivered and very appro
priate Tor the occasion. Rev. Biggs led in
prayer, after which the right ham! of fel
lowship was extended to Rev. Galhreath
by almost every one present.
The evening services were conducted by
Rev. Adams, who preached from 31st Deut
eronomy, I2th verse: Uather the people
together," &c. The meeting was closed with
prayer by Rev. Crothers.
The followings ministers and elders were
present:

as well as the members of the church.
Mr. Benjamin Barrere, of Hillsboro, was
present on Wednesday. Mr. John A. Pat
terson, Democratic candidate for Repre
sentative, was also on hand. Mrs. Watts,

Bellefontaine, were present during the
ordination of their son.
Some of our young men were apparent
ly smitten by some of the fair damsels
who were present, but with careful treat
ment we hope they will survive.

A Pen Worth Recommending.
We have been favored with samples of
the celebrated Spencerian Double Elastic
Steel Pens, and after trying them feel justi
fied in highly commending them to our
readers. They are made of the best steel,
and by the most expert workmen in Europe,
and have a national reputation for certain
qualities which no other pen seems to have
attained in so great perfection, among
which are uniform evenness of point, dura
bility, flexibility, and quill action. It is
thus quite natural that the Spencerian
should be preferred and used by profes
sional penmen, in business colleges, counting-rooms,
government offices, public
schools, and largely throughout the coun
try. Indeed, so popular have they be
come, that of the "Number One" alone,
as many as eight millions are sold annu
ally. The Spencerian Pens may be had, as a
rule, from any dealer; but when not thus
obtainable, the proprietors, Messrs. lvison,
Blakeman, Taylor & Co., the well-known
publishers, 13S and 140, Grand Street,
New York, will send for trial, samples of
each of the twenty numbers oil receipt of
twentv-Gve cents.

stop interest, and also make arrangements,
that in case of death the debt shall be
