Card of Thanks.
Mb. EniTon l'lease permit me through
the columns of your excellent paper to ex
tend to the pupils, patrona and friends of
the Mt. 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,
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.
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.

A Handsome Flag Presented by the

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 :
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.

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.

of five cents. The receipts here alone

A one-legged soldier, a member of the 48 O.

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

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

so extensive an entertainment, where there
was not the least manifestation of social,

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

Hillsboro's Voice on the Intoxicating
Beverage Truffle.
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
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

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. Wardrobe suiinlus all gone with tin
exception of a small pittance outside our wear
ing apparel. Most of the furniture with front
mom siionlies was saved. 1 or w hich we. are
indebted to the heroic devotion of liainsboro's
ble Boris and daughters, wlio lougnt the
tUnics like young tigers, until tiny were
driven from the parsonage by the melting hi at
then deleting their Httciitioii to the protection
of Hiirioliuiliiig buildings, which theyseeurid
with the exception of damage to Mr. llulitt's
storeroom: all praise and thanks to the
hei nes. both voting and old. e are now
through the kindness of Sister Mini rva I.ueiis
and "Aunt'1 Phi-be Miiburn pleasantly enwr
laiiu d. w ailing an opportunity to commence

A Question Answered.
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.
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

dred and sixty acres."
