What effect will the adoption of the pro posed Second Amendment to the Constitu tion of Ohio have upon tho prices of grain ? Ohio produced hud year, as Bhown by tho Statistic, page C32: Bushels. (lorn 78,712,79(1 Wheat 38,102,033 Acres of Barley (5fi,R47 Corn nt 50 cts. yielded $3tl.35fl,.T.I8 Wheat at !fl " 38,102.033 Whisky and alcohol (page OHO). 4,91 1.458 Beer 5,589, 7( Estimating whisky at $1 per gallon and allowing four gallons to the bushel we find that distillers nRed 1,227,804 bushels of corn, for which they paid $013,932. Di viding this sum by the. corn produced we conclude that had no whisky been made, the price of corn would have depreciated only eight-tenths of ono cent per bushel. But distillers feed neither hogs nor cattle when they buy no com, so that the in creased demand for pork and beef would have resulted in an advance instead of a reduction of prices, Again, by growing wheat instead of bar ley the C6,847 acres would have produced 809,0 1 bushels, which added to the actual yield would have mode 38,971,011 bushels. Dividing 5859,011 tho value of that thrown into the market from the bnrley fields by tho total supposed yield, we find as a result a reduction of 2 and 15 cents per bushel. Now consumers probably paid for the whisky nd beer made in Ohio, about $30,000, 000 which accumulating in the pockets of whisky and beer drinkers would enable them to provide more liberally for their families and would cause the prices of both wheat and corn to advance Closed saloons aud increasing sobriety will bring a do- crease of crime aud of expenscB incident thereto, aud consequently taxes will diuiin ish. It will bo noticed tbot wo have omitted from our estimate the corn used for nianu facturing the whisky aud alcohol needed for medicinal, mechauical and scientific purposes, allowed under the Amendment, also the beer, used for feeding stock and for bread. Surely farmer may dismiss their fears, and by voting "Prohibition Yes," protect their homes aud State from the ravages of the drink-demon. J. F. Loyd THE SPARGUR REUNION.

When nielo d up, LobeitHtem was unconscious, and bleeding profusely at tho nose, and this deli cate niemlKT was turned up like a sled-runner. Fortunately Dr. W. H. and F. L.

The los amount' to ab-.ut live hundred dollars, with no insurance.

The railroad have agreed upon a i 2l round trip rate to YillHea. Iowa, to partus wishing to attend the Spargur Itetinion, which takes place there on the lirst day of .September. The rate seems biu'h. but it is newrt heje.-is b low half fare, and had not tic low- hure of six dollars been published, would have been considered a liberal rate nnd accept) d as sueh by the man agers. '1 here has been no head to the eoiiecrn md no p'-r-iori could give thn r;nhoad people .my idea a to how miny would go, unless the rate was mnde say si dollars, and out of ail reason. We lirinly believe, however, that if a committee would he. appointed and secure, say from four to six hundred names of persons that would goat -th"). for the round trip, that ueh a rate would be made. Another meeting if the people m ar Ihunsboro and the repre eiitutics of the railroads, will take place on Friday next, and something definite wiil then e ! uriied. At present however, the rate H illed at t'JI for the round trip, tickets good 'or thirty days. The I. 11. V W. will ticket :le ir paeuger: via Sphnglh id, and the C.

Gibson, which took 'lace at a few minutes after 1 o'clock on Sat irday morning, of that dread disease, con umption. .Mr. Gibson had been in poor lealth for the past six months, but his decline n the past two months was remarkable, and auscd his numerous friends much uneasiness, number of whom tried in vain to persuade urn to give up his business aud try a change pf climate. The deceased was ablo to attend to his biisi tess up to within the past three weeks, but vhile doing so, it was plain to be seen, it re piired an extra ex- rtion and that each succced .ngdiy found him weaker. i'or a number of years Mr. Gibson represent d various daily and weekly newspapers, as ,'orrespondeiit from this place -and at the time f his death was the correspondent of tho Cin cinnati Commercial Gaetee. He was without .i doubt the best newspaper man in this vicini ty, and was a young man of more than ordi nary intelligence, and was noted for his hon "sty, integrity and fair dealings with his fel low man. For several years he occupied the responsi ble position of prescription clerk for Messrs. Parrett .t Son. during all of which time not a single error was made. At the time of the failure of Messrs, Edgar it I'raker some six. months since, deceased purchased the stock of the assignee and transacted a p rob table business up to the time of his death, Mr. Gibnon was unmarried and in the 28th year of his age, was a member of the I. O. O. t-, secretary of Davis Lodge A. O. I'. W., and also held a policy in the I'nion Life Insurance Company of Cincinnati. Mrs. A. K. Gibson, mother of the deceased, was a constant attended Jioth day and night, at the bedfide of her son, and in her sad bereavi ment has the sympathy of the entire community. The following beautiful poem was read at the grave, by .Miss Laura C. MeGurniugh : AFTER DEATH IN ARABIA. trha tiint at Azan $t nlx Tftis fo toi'furt oil his frit mis.

Like a hawk, my soul hath passed. Love the inmate, not the room The wearer, not the garb the plume Cf the falcon, not the bars Which kept him from the splendid stars ? Losing friends !
