Sorghum as a Farm Crop.
The sorghum growers of Minne
sota and the Northwest generally re
port a prosperous season last year,
and that the production of molasses
and sugar in that region is constantly
increasing. Those who raised crops
of sorghum last year report as a rule
that they made more money in that
way than by any other kind of farm
ing. Capital is being invested in
establishments for the manufacture
of sugar on a large scale and with im
proved machinery, which seems to
solve the problem of the successful
production of sugar from the cane.
If sugir can be produced so success
fully in Minnesota, with her short
summers, we see no reason why
sorghum cannot be made profitable
in Ohio.

useful and practicable applications of elec

public, is embodied in the new invention of
the Portable Electric Light Company. The
little luachiue which is no,v attracting so
much deserved attention is a small elec

ties of lighter and a burglar alarm. As a
lighter it can be arranged to produce instan
taneous light throughout the house, and
can also be attached to a medical galvanic
coil by which a powerful current of elec
tricity can be conveyed. The instrument
is small and compact, occupying a space
only five inches square, aud can readily be
carried from room to room, as it weighs
but five pounds. In the second capacity

The Rights of Wives.
It seems that under our laws, as inter
preted in the Status of New York aud Ohio,
husbands still havo the right tq Ueut their
wives. . certain Mr. hchtilu assaulted
Mrs. Sohtp'tz. tjho claimed damages for a
certain amount. A verdict was givau iu
hes favor; whereupon the case was scut to
the Cuurt af Appeals, and it was decided
th it the court below was wrong, and that
uiu'er the common law a husband has the
right to punish his spousi by blows or
otherwise, provided it is c'.one judiciously;
iu other words, he must not use undue
violence. When the case came bef.ire him
in a lower' court, Judge Davis said that the
wife's tonguo often indicted more cruul
wounds thau could the husband's fist or
stick. Iu tho Ohio case, the judge decided
that the laws giving women their rights of
property in uo way chaugo their relation to
their husbands from a conjugal point of
view. The wife may owu the house nno

A pleasant rtirprise given in commemora

of Key. E.'L. Knox, a worthy 'and highly
esteemed brother and minister of the gos
pel, ih the P. M. Church.- Brother Kuoxj
first came auioiig us. In the fall of 170, and
commenced his ministerial labors on what
Is well known as tho 1'leasant Hill circuit,,
where, ha labored most earnestly iu the
cause) of his Master for two years, itis
efforts in turning sinners from the ways of
darkness to the glorious light and liberty of
the gospel of Christ was marked by won
derful success. During his stay upon this
circuit, and especially this part of it, he
and his devoted family made many warm
and lasting friends. But in the providence
of Ood he was called to other aud! more dis
taut fields of labor, and he and his family
in the fall of 'hi very reluctantly bid adieu
to their many dear friends aud acqnaint
ances aud moved to the northern part of
this State, where he continned in tho work
of his Master's vinoyard until the fall of '82.
After faithfully and earnestly discharging
the duties thus assigned him, ho saw fit in
the good providence of Ood to remove once
more with bis family to Highland county,
where he has permanently located iu our
pleasaut little village of Lynchburg, where
he and his family are received with grati
tude and pleasure by his many friends,
who saw fit on tho 13th of this month to
cause their hearts to leap for joy ns they
looked out from their quiet little residence
situated ou Broadway, and beheld with
amazement and wonder sonic thirty or forty
of these old veteraus approaching their
peaceful domicile, loaded down with baskets
well filled with all manner of dainties aud
eatables imaginable. Tho surprise was
complete iu every respect, as it had been
planned and most successfully managed by
their eldest daughter, who had sought
frequently for a favorable opportunity to
bring a surprise upon her father, as ho had
often boasted that such things could not be
played on him. But Miss Maggie's efforts
have completely silenced his battery ou
that point. Tho occasion, however, was
made one of joy aud gladness, not only to
our worthy brother and family but equally
so to all who participated in the festivities
of the occasion. Not long after tho assem
bly of this band of brothers and sisters
until a loug row of tables was arranged iu the
hall and loaded tj the full extent of their
capacities with everything nocessary to
make this a grand feast of good things. All
being in readiness and tho announcement
made that the hour of refreshment had
arrived, the worthy brother with his de
voted companion wero conducted Iy Col.
West, of Clinton county, to a favorable
position at the head of that bountiful table,
and after the guests were all comfortably
seated, our worthy brother, with a heart
overflowing with love and gratitude, in most
pathetic language, invoked the blessing of
diviue providence upon this memorable
occasion. After an hour spent in feasting
and social and friendly enjoyment, the
company was conducted to the parlor,
where they were most pleasantly entertain
ed for an hour or more by music, all of
sacred character, rendered by Miss Maggie
Knox, at the organ, accompanied by Mrs.
Col. West, Mrs. E. L. Knox, Miss Lida

How a Tinner's Wife at Union Broke
Up a Game of Cards.
LastTlunsday the tinner at Vuiou, de
siring to hear the testiiuouy in the casn of
Siuks vs. Sinks, came to this city, leaving
his tinshop iu charge of his son, us business
was very dull, large numbers of people
having left the town to attend the trial in
Dayton. Tho young tinner, finding that
business was dull, called in a number of his
friends to have a social game of cards.
After tho game had proceeded a short time,
the tinner's wife sent her little daughter to
the shop to call the young tinner aud have
him chop off a chicken's head. The
daughter seeing the gtyuo iu mx.oroiis be
fore she etercd, did but tliuiurb them, but
hastened lituua to inform her mother what
she had seen. The mother hastened to tho
scene, and as soon as she entered the shop,
at once began praying to Ood for her son
who was engaged iu this sinful pjmtime.
All the boys listened very atleniivvly, ex

her, She quietly arose, proceeded to the

The Marietta nnd Cincinnati Ihiilroa-l is now
known as the Cincinnati, Washington and l'.al
timore Ilailrnad. The purchasing eemmittee
of the road under its old name and others in
terested at a late meeting, at Chillicothe, under
the order of sale from the Hons County Com t
of Common l'leas took formal possession of
the road, and elected the following olhccrs for
the ensuing vear:
Colonel Or'lund Smith. J. Carroll Walsh, S.
Snencer, T. E. Hamhleton, Robert Garrett, W.
T. McClintock, J. L. Keck. (ieo. Ilondly and J.
K. I.ochmun. A permanent organization was
partially perfected by the election of the follow
ing olticets: President, Col. Orland Smith; Sec
retary, W. T. Lome; Treasurer, W. E. Jones.
It is thought that J. JI. Stewat, lute receiver
of the M. A. C. It. It., will be elected Vice l'resi
dent and General Manager of the road.
Mr. Orliind Smith, president of the now
Cincinnati, Washington & Baltimore liail
road, says that he believes the prospects of
the New Midland road, via the old Marietta
line, and Vienna, to Columbus, aro very
good. Thcro are a good mauy preliminary
matters to be arranged. Work will proba
bly not bo commouced beforo tho last of
April or May. Tho Cincinnati parties in
terested iu the road felt that the meeting
held there a few dayB ago was very inop
portune, and under the circumstances were
not in a condition to decide what they would
do. 1 ho local subscriptions are more than
half paid up, and there will probably be no
dilliculty at Mt. Sterling. About half of the
quota of that place has already been sub
scribed. It is a thriving littlo place, in a
fertile farming region, aud has one railroad
and wants another.
The Columbus and Cincinnati Midland
At a recent meeting of the stockholders
of tho proposed Columbus nnd Cincinnati
Midland Itailrosd, hold at Washington C.
H., tho following board of directors were
elected : Daniel McLean, C. II. Browned),
J. I). Shuckey, George Melvin, and M.
I'laus are on foot for tho building of a
new road from a point on the Marietta and
Cincinnati to Columbus which will shorten
the distance from Cincinnati to the State
Capital from three to five miles. That is,
the distauco will be from threo to five miles
less thau by the l'au-ilandle Itoad, the
most direct aud shortest line now running
to that place. Several surveys have been
made, and the road will start from a point
on tho Marietta somewhere between New
Vienna and Clinton Valley, and most prob
ably from the former place, which is fifty
seven miles distant from Cincinnati. The
road will connect with the Central Ohio
Division of the Baltimore and Ohio at Co
lumhiiK, nnd will bo from fifty-si veu to
sixty miles iu length, making tho entire
distance from Cincinnati over ihe Marietta
and Cincinnati and Columbus aud Cincin
nati Midlitu.l (which is to be tho name of
the new roudj, from 111 to 118 miles. The
road will also be used to reach Columbus
iu transporting west bound freight aud
passengers which eomo over tho Baltimore
and Ohio nnd Marietta and Cincinnati
Itafldu, instead of using the Scioto Valley,
as at presont. A company was formed and
incorporated last summer for building the
road, of which Georgo Melvin, of Wuf.li.ng
lon C. 11., Ohio, is President, raid Judge
Wilhird, of the same pln.iT-, Secretary. A
contract has been vui.red into by the in
corporators villi the Midland Construction
Cotnpnny for tho building, equipment nud
operating of the road on certain conditions,
which same the incorporator have under
taken to perform and with nattering hopes
