Ziou school, most sincere thanks for the kindness and hospitality shown me while among them, and to all of whom I feel greatly indebted for their many ex pressions of respect and friendship. And though our number was excelled in many districts, yet for prompt attendance, good behavior and faithful workers the school is unexcelled, Bud I heartily recommend it to any teacher who has the cause of his pro fission at heart. We also wish to extend our thanks to the Committee on Decoration and the young gentlemen who furnished musio at the close of school. With thanks to you, Mr. Editor, and best wishes for my young friends, I remain Very Respectfully, JAMES H. WILLIAMS. Feb. 25, 1884. Teacher. Important Litigation. In the Whitley vs. Long et al. case iu Common Pleas Court, of which mention has been made and which was argued upon demurrer by counsel a Bhort time Biuce, leave was given on last Saturday to plain tiff to amend his petition. It seems that when the suit was brought a mistake was made iu suing upon the wrong official bond of the Sheriff, and that the error originated by Ihe County Auditor, in not having made a record of tho bond for T. H. Long's second term of office, and as to thiB point the demurrer was sustained. The leading question in the cuho as to whether an officer can demand his fees in advance from a reaident of the county, was not decided and atill remains for determi nation. The Court Baid that this was undoubtedly one of the most important caRes ever brought iu this county, and that greater interests were involved to a greater number of people than any case ever brought to him for settlement. So as it stands the attorneys in the case, Olin J. Ross for plaintiff, and Sloane A Newby, Collins fc Collins, and Hart Jr. Hough for defendant, will have to tackle the case again next term. Sunday's Temperance Meeting. a E. Was led by Rev. J. F. Loyd, and there was good attendance. Rov. John Pearson Presiding Elder of this district, being pres ent, was called on by the chairman, and made a strong and excellent speeoh in favor of the passage of the Auti-Saloon Ordi nauce by our city couucil at their next meeting. He said he had heard the objec tion made to the ordinance that the College law on which it was based does not include Female Colleges. He had taken the pains to exaniiue the charter of the Hillsboro Fe male College, and found that it possessed all the powers conferred upon any college or university in the State, and as the law it self made no distinction betweon male aud female colleges, he was satisfied there was nothing in this objection, aud that the or dinance, if passed, would bo valid. He also called attention to the fact that at the state election last fall 78 votes out of every 100 east in this township were cast iu favor of the prohibitory amendment, which proves beyond doubt that a majority of the voters of Hillsboro are in favor of prohibi tion. With BUeh backing he thought couu cil ought not to hesitate to pass the ordi nance at ouce, and he bolieved the people would sustain thorn in so doing. Judge Thompson stated that he expected to present the ordiuauce to couucil at their uext regular meeting, Monday evening, ' March 3d, when it is hoped all the members will bo present. Rev. Pearson also said that he hoped to be present. Mr. II. 8. Searboro made a few remarks warmly approving the ordinance, ud Baid he believed it would be heartily supported by a majority of the young men our town, as well as by the older citizens. Mr. Searboro was appointed leader for uext Sunday aud the meeting then ud-jourued. Court Proceedings. W.

"THE BOYS IN BLUE" MADE HAPPY. A Handsome Flag Presented by the Ladies The Whole Affair a Grand Sucess—Net Proceeds about $600. The Fair and Festival given by the ladies for tho benefit of John M. Barrere Post O. A. R., on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, of last week, was nndor all the circum stances a complete success financially, and in every other respect, considering the limited time in which the ladies hail to pre pare for the occasion, and the urgent call made upon our citizens' for the relief of the flood sufferers, which necessarily interfered with the Fair to some extent. The net proceeds, amounting to about foOO, may be regarded as entirely satisfactory and will give tho relief fund of the Post a very handsome start. Below will be found a variety of inci dents and items gathered by Nkws repor ters, which will be of interest to our read ers generally : NOTES AND INCIDENTS. On Friday evening about 8 o'clock, the members of the Post were requested to gather near the stage, and upon the raising of the curtain the boys were all very much surprised aud delighted by the presentation of a very bandsomo flag by Miss Leon Walker, in behalf of the ladies of Hllls boro. Tho presentation scene formed a handsome tableau, composed of three young ladies, Misses Fannin Kibler, Leon Walker aud Madge Carson, dressed re. spectively iu red, white and blue, Miss Walker holding the colors. Her presenta tion address was appropriate and very gracefully delivered. Capt. Caraon, as Commander of the Post, received the flag, and said he was completely taken by sur prise. He apologized for Dot being able to make a fitting response, but did very well under the circumstanco. He Baid the ladies of Hillsboro would always have a warm placo in the hearts of the members of John M. Barrere Post, and that their beau tiful gift would ever be cherished by tho Post with admiration and respect. The presentation was followed by the singing of the "Star Spangled Banner" by the operatta quartetto, many of the audience joining iu the chorus. of in to al. The ad dis missed rci- al. Among the most interesting object at the Fair were the battle-staiued and bnlle riddled colors of the 12th and 48th O. V. I., which bore their mute testimony to the bravery and devotion of the men who fought and died beneath their tattered folds for the preservation of the Union. At the suggestion of Mrs. Mather there woi a committee appointed consisting of Mrs. Mather, Mrs. Pearson, Mrs. Dr. Hoyt, and Mrs. Bon Chauey, to make arrange ments for a doll baby show, and to the en ergy of Mrs. Mather is attributed its great success. Comrades Julian, Ellifritz, Groves, Ma dox, Thornburg, Ed Mullenix, Carson, Walker, Joe Cooper, and others, were con spicuous "among the boys," who rendered most efficient services. The performance of Mother Foraker and Mrs. Beuj. Couard on the old time spin ning wheel, was a great curiosity, especially to the young folks, "who toil not, neither do they spin." At the cry of fire there was a regular stampede, aud had it not been for a few cool heads there would have been a great many persons injured. Several ladies fainted. The heartfelt thanks of the Poet are due to all the ladies aud goutlemen who so ac tively and efficiently exerted themselves to make the whole affair a success. The Pricetown Band put in an nppear- auce Saturday night and played for the Fair, with their usual Bpirit and patriotic zeal. Cass Wright and his brother contributed much to the enjoyment of the occasion by their excellent music. The Soap Bubble Booth was a great buo eess. and furnished lots of fun for both young und old. The Fair was a success iu every respect. uat receipts beiug about f GOO. The family grocery run by Ed Mullcuix did a thriving business. Nearly all tho articles iu the ladies' fancy booth were sold at gid prices. The old vets, seemed to renew their youth and "fight their battles o cr again. Tho candy booth and the fish pond were among the greatest centers of attraction Hundreds had their fortunes told at tho iriosv cimii. and all Rot tho worth of thoir n-i j , money. Mr Guskill's Dicture of the 2nd Ohio Camp at Murfreesboro, attracted much at-tentiou- Thc Mexican pottery mado by the Pueblo Indians, aud loaned by Mrs. J. H. Jolly, was ono of the greatest curiosities of tho Fair. Everybody wondered how the ladies could give such splendid dinners for U5 cents. But the fact is, the Hillsboro ladies cau do almost anything they put their miuds to. The comic operatta performed by a quartette consisting of Mrs. It. T. Hough, Miss Alice Pugsley, and Messrs. Pearson and Callahan, with Mrs. J. J. Pugsley as Manager, was great success, and cleared about i40. There waB quite a panic iu the hall for a minutes Saturday evening, caused by the tak ing fire of a gasoline cook stove. Mrs. John W. Hai wood fainted and has not yet entirely recovered from the effects of the fright. For tunately no one was seriously injured, but was a narrow escape. DOLL BOOTH. Pope. de fendants to a al. days aud Dunn Itu poitof of Judg ment cou fmswl Aud the Doll Booth ! Here were tube setn dolls, little dolls, old dolls, young dolls, blacU dolls, white dolls, walking dolls, creeping dolls, daucing dolls, kicking dolls, crying dolls, joint ed dolls, goasaiuered dolls, wax dolls, cuina dolls, biu,ue dolls, rag dolls, rubber dolls, wooden dolls, aud dolls of all ihapes aud aim aud able to do eveiything except talk. Which latter want was supplied on Saturday Ly dull (.V) from the II. 1". C, which was said one young gentleman to ponscss more attraction fur him thau all the three Hundred. The Doll Booth consisted i f dolls borrowed from dirtirciit persons and arranged on ihiKti mid counters for exhibition for the small of five cents. The receipts here alone over tW, aud we fuel eoutideut they could hern greater. The crowds around this booth waiting for admission showed ell its popular ity. Entering tho booth the first thing to be seen was Iirigham Young's wives standing in line opposite the entrance, here his entiro family W is to be found. His favorite wife, a large blonde, occupied tbo center of the row. "Ann Eliza" was attired in scarlet sntin. Immediately beforo them hung a little Hea then Chinese sent hero from Halt Lake City, Utah. On a rafter hung the "old woman toss ed up In a basket, ninety times as high as the moon," with her broom ready to sweep the cobwebs from the sky. "Little Do Peep," with her sheep that Aid come home, was also there. "The old woman that lived in a shoe And had so many children, she didn't Know what to do." was found on the counter snugly tucked'away with her children, in the big shoo belonging to W. II. Glenn ft Co. A one-legged soldier, a member of the 48 O. V. I. clothed in the blue and gold and supnor ted on a crutch, was of most interest to tho veterans. A huge black doll lalsded "Horn near Hesaea, GeorKia" attracted much atten tion. '1'his was quite a traveled doll having he n carried from Its birthplace in North Georgia to Atlanta and thence to Ohio, over ttie Cincin nati A Southern and not rni "the underground railway." The wolf that had eaten Kcd Hiding Hood's grandmother rested comfortably oil a Queen Anne bedstead, while Ked Hiding Hood stood near looking wonderingly on. "Sairey Gamp" had come all tho nay from London Town to be present at the exhibition and announced that, "It gave me such a turn!" to her licit neighbor, a handsome youth of the days of 177(1, elegantly clad in black velvet and gold straps with three breeches. While the witch beneath them could only murmur, "fllack spirits and white, lted spirits and gray; Mingle. nuuRle, mingle, Von that mingle may," as she told of things good and evil that would conic to pasB to ail who cl.nced to tuin her wheel. And tho siltnt gray-clad Quakeress looked demurely at the little pink robed darling that insisted on crying and kicking while being rocked in its bluo-hned buggy. "Tho missing link" (a monkey) constantly grinned at tbo actions of the "wild man from Borneo" who with his wife received a great deal of attention from the little visitors. "Sambo and Dinah" tripped tho "light fantastic" on Friday, but. Saturday morning Dinah becoming wearied refused to dance longer, but Sambo being made of Bterner stuff did his duty, saying meanwhile, "For Dinah may stop and Dinah may go. lint I go on forever," Around the wall hung Line Beard's wives, looking mournfully down at the gay Bcene be fore them. Perhaps the greatest novelty of the whole collection was tho creeping doll with its smil ing face, looking appealingly at the visitors sh if to tell them it had really learned to creep. Tho walking doll, a stately little lady, who moved so slowly as if afraid of tbo contact of her bronze shoes witn tbo rough lloor, inter ested the visitors greatly. A chartningold couple seated in high-backed chairs represented "John Anderson, my jo, John," aud the "glide old wife." Wo might fill two or three columns with notes about the Fair, but must stop for want of room. Amongst the many very handsome things done by the good ladies of Hillsboro and vicinity to aid and encourage the late G. A. R. Fair, there was one, which in delicacy of conception aud skill in execution, enti tles the donor and artist to special recogni tion, nud w ill always be held by the Post as happy reminder of the great pleasure and triumphant success of our first fair. I speak of tho fiue and life-like crayon portrait of the late Captain John M. Bar rere, from whom our Post takes its name, by Miss Lizzie Riehards, daughter of our distinguished follow-citizen, Joseph H. Richards, tsq. This excellent portrait, with its beautiful frame and mountings, will be assigned ft conspicuous place in onr Post room, where, it is believed, that our deliberations, be neath tho very shadow of this patriarch and patriot, will be the more surely char acterized by Fraternity, Charity and Loy ulty. Miss UicbardR win please aceepi me thanks of the Post, and take high rank its lady friends. A MEMBER OF THE POST. Where unanimity of feeling nud oneness of action characterize the illortB or any comuiuuity in sustaining aud forwarding an enterprise, success is assured. This fact was exemplaned hy the very successful conduct of the G. A. K. fair held at this place last week ; mid to our mind, one of the most pleasant features, of this Tery pleasant occasion, was tho friendly in tercourse, and cordial fellowship, between all clauses of our citizens, iu their efforts to make the fair ft Buccess beyoud a paradven ture. 80 that, while the fair has secured a near, fund for a worthy charity, our people have been brought closo together nr.iully. and by this contract, are the better rilled to svmiiathise and appreciate eueh other. It was really reiresniug 10 (jarueiuie iu so extensive an entertainment, where there was not the least manifestation of social, denominational, or political jealousy, strife or discord. During the whole three days in tho hall, vising w ith each other to make the fair a pleasing success, we noticed ladiesjof all the religious denominations, of every degree of refinement and culture, and of varied social positions, working with a will iu sweet ac cord; while at the tahles, aud around the booths, wore methodists, prealiyterians, bnptists, episcopalians aud catholics; re publicans, democrats and prohibitionists ; hankers, lawyers, doctors, merchants, farm ers, niecnanics ami laborers ; wuue auu ei.lnred: nil sterling, worthy and patriotic, women aud men, forgetting their ilifferen mi contributing their time, their energy and their means to honor the defeuders of our country and to aid their uufoituuate.

HILLSBORO, O., Feb. 26, 1884. The Statutes of Ohio give the Council . .f nn Incorporated Village iu which a College or a University is located, substantially the same control of the truffle in intoxicating liquors that the Constitution of the Slate gives to the Legislature. In its decision on the Scott Law Inst summer tho Supreme Court decided that under that grant of authority the Legislature could wholly pro. hibit the traffic iu intoxicants. We have a college iu our village. True, it is a college "for femiiio education," but the law savs any incorporated village within who! bounds there is located "u Coll. go or Uni versity." makiiiL' no distinction whatever as to the objects of the College or Univer sity. Anyono who is int rested may see by the Charter of our Colh e on record in the Recorder's office, that the "Ilillslioro Fe male College" is ft full-Hedged und legally authorized College. Indeed, it lias all collegiate powers, even to the eonfering of all "iu Course or Honorary degrees confer red by any College or University." Ibuce that matter is in no sense in tho way. I have no doubt tho excellent end honor able men who at present compose the vil lage council, will be glad to know the voice of the electors by whom they were chosen ou this over-shadowing issue, and kuow-ing their wishes, will hasten to comply with them. Iu view therefore of tho present effort under the College law to secure tho pro hibition of the intoxicatiing beverage lnisi uess within the corporation of Hillsboro it may be of some value to cull atteution to tho following figures: Last October h vote was taken on a pro. posed nmenduient to the constilulion for ever prohibiting, within the State, the manufacture of and tr.iltie in intoxicating liquors to be used as a beverage. In that lection, in this township. l,.ui electors oted. Of these H.et, or sixty-four and ft half per ci'ut., vote. I for prohibition nearly two to one. The question remains: How did the vote stand witluu tlio corpor ation? The corporation vote was not nt that election kept separate from that of the township: hence we cau only approximate it. Two suggestions may neip to a correct estimate. Iho Democratic voto of fill in the whole township was divided ns follows on the amendment: For, 2IKI; ngainst. :)J, or 37. .r) per cent, of tho Democratic vote for Prohibition. Ihe Kepuoiicau Vote was divided ns follows: For, (rl) : against, 157, 811.5 per cent, for Prohibition. Tlio town in the warm corporation contest of 1M8'2. out of a total vote of tV.il, cast :t:7, or (Viio per cent, for tlio liepublican ticket. The town is from thivo to tic per cent. more inclined to Republicanism than the remainder of the township, .arrjing that proportion with the above calculation the Prohibition vote of the town must have been about equal to tlH per cent, of all the electors voting. The other suggestion that more than confirms the same view is that but a rt ry fun campaign tompTaiiee meetings were held outside of town, while within, both with meetings and literature, the campaign was quite active. There can then be no doubt at all that more than two-thirds, mid quite likely three-fourths, of tho electors uf Hillsboro voted last October iu favor of the utter destruction of the intoxicating bever age business. It will be noted that at least eighty out of every hundred of thoso who elose'the present council voted for outright prohibition. There should be no doubt then as to w hat these people want. Did not more than two-thirds embrace even a much larger proportion of the law abiding, sober, sub stantial, tax-paying, moral and religious portion of the community? Shall not their voice bo heeded? Or shall tho less than one-third, made up. as it largely is. bo the acknowledged masters of this towu so long and so justly held in high repute for its morals and intelligence? J. 1'. The Rainsboro Parsonage Burned. For the News. RAINSBORO Feb 10, 1884. On Tuesday evening. Feb. 12, we left our parrtoliage home at about 2 p. in., to lie absent a (lav or two. when ou Wednesday evening about 4,1 .: o'clock a nies.iKe hailed us, that our home burned to ashes on Tuesday niht at 11 o'clock. This sad intelligence proved only too true, by the darkened walls that met our ga.e on Thursday morning. As to how the lire broke out is to us a mystery deep and great. Tlio thought has passed to public mind that it started from an ash box in the summer kitchen, into which a phu of hot ashes ha-.1 been cujiiiied that day. To this we would re ply, that there had been no ashes, cold or hot put into that box for nearly live weeks before the lire, Mrs. Middleton having been absent at her mother's, and mvself engaged in meetings the most of the above stated time, so that there wus no tiro in or about the kitchen de. partment. As to the loss sustained, the entire kitchen, dining room, pantry, and cellar department wein swi pt without a remaining vestaee.

A subscriber of ours wrote us cuni'iruing the matter of lne.v to secure 11 Certificate. etc., and the following is Mr. A. I. Wig- gins' reply : HILLSBORO. O., Feb 14th, 1884. 9 Editors ok Ni:ws: lu answer to your question how' to secure a 11 rtitieate in in u of lost ilisi liaroe . would s:iy, tiisi: 1111 up-I plication should be 111. ale to tho Adjutant General of I'. S., Wasliinetitii. 1. C. A c. r titicate is t'iveu under the -b'' "f '',,., approvid .lurcii ,iim, im. upon s.niM n -.-ory proof that the sol.lii r "Ims tost his cer tificate of (lisciiaroe, or ti, ,11 11 mis i ei n 'destroyed without his privity or procure ment." Mv fee for oroi uritn: same is 1. In answer to your second question rehit-j ting to laud warrants, I would say. that service rendered since the :trd of March, lS.r!. including the late rebellion, does not entitle to bounty land. Where service bus been rendered hy a sub- slitilte. he is the person entitled to bounty land and led bis employer. Onlv one warrant for one hundred and sixty acres can issue to a soldier 1 r .my cut all service. A blank form of decoration will be fur nished upon request of any p. rsou desiring to apply for a warrant. Section til-"! of the Uevised Statutes of the V. S. is as follows : 'Tuich of the surviving persons speeiti. d in tho classes enumerated in the following section, who has served for a period of not less than fourteen days in any d lheWHr-:n which the Tinted Slates have been engaged since the year seventeen hundred and nine, ty and prior to the Urd day of March, eight eeu hundred and lifty-tive, shall be entitled to receive a warrant from the Department of ttie Interior for one hundred and sixty acres of hind; end, when any per-oti so en titled has, prior to the third day of March, eighteen hundred and lifty-tive, reiviv, d warrant tor unv number nf acres less than one hundred and sixty, he shaU b" allowed a warrant for such qimuiiy of land only will make iu the w liole, w ilh w hat ho may have received prior to that date, one hun dred and sixty acres." 1 hope the ubove may answer your qu ltespcctfully, A.
