L. and F. J. Bridwell and H. S Fullerton, praying for the dissolution the Leader Company. Plaintiffs say that they, together with one A. P.

A change of time took place on the C, , W. .1 II. K. It. last Monday. The morning train now h aves here at 7:20 IliilMlinro time, which ennliles passengers for Columbus to connect with the morning train from Cincinnati over the Midland road, reaching Columbus about noon. By this arrangement passengers can have sev eral hours in that cit , and leaving there by the fternoon train at 4 o'clock, can reiurn hero the same evening on the H:10 train. This will be a gncat convenience as well as a saving of time an expense to persons vis iting tho State capital. The afternoon iraiu leaves at 2:37, Ilills boro time, about the saino time as before. Passengers by this train connect with the Midland traiu leaving Cincinnati at 4:30. The mail traiu now arrives here at 10:45, and is mmlo a passenger train exclusively so as to avoid the vexatious delays hereto, fore caused by tho freight business, nnd in sure its prompt arrival on time. The freight business will now be done by a special mixed train arriving here at 8:50 every evening, and leaving at 0:35. This train will also carry passengers. The afternoon accommodation train will leave Cincinnati about tho same time as heretofore. 3:33 city time, arriving here at 30, but passengers wishing to remain in tho city longer can take the Midland train at 4:30, arriving here at 8:50 p. m. The only complaint we have heard against the new arrangement is that passengers for Cincinnati by the morning train have to waint at Blanchester about 40 minutes for the Chillicotho train so that they reach the city but littlj sooner than under the old ar rangement. In consequence of this a petilion was be ing circulated yesteniay ana generally signed by our business men, asking, for a restoration of the six o'clock morning traiu. This we think would give better Batisfao tiou all around, oveu if tho 7:20 traiushould be entirely taken off. GRAND CONCERT. Opening the Season of 1884-5. The Hillsboro Drum Corps announce a grand coucert at Music Hall on tho evening of Moudny, December. 29th, as the open ing of the amu-ieinent season.

The shock of nu earthquake was dis- tiuctly felt here last Monday evening about nine o'clock. The jar was distinct enough to cause people to spring out of their beds, aud was accompanied with a rumbling noise like thunder. But one shock was felt as far as we have heard, continuing from 10 to 15 seconds. The shock appears to have been felt as ar south as Adams county. At Hollow- town Esq. Martin says the jarring was dis tinctly felt and caused people to jump from their beds, aud was also very sensibly felt at Shnckeltou's und vicinity, but no damage is anywhere reported.

Through tho courtesy of the editors I inakf my bow again to tho old frinnda of Highland county. Three years ago I wns permitted through tho Hillsboro press to give a few sketches in reference to what we then called ''Northwestern Frontier." Since then the "Frontier" has taken the advice of Mr. Greely to young men and go west, nnd is supposed to have located nbout two hun dred miles west of us, and we are begin ning to coll ourselves a sober, staid old county. And now if the editors of the News, a paper I read with interest twenty. six or eight years ago when a boy in old Highland county, will conclude that a brief letter or two of interest to their readers, I may ''re port progress" to my old friends of yore. And if. ns in the past, my sketches should enlist correspondence of further particulars of our Northwest, I shall be freo to answer any questions asked by any looking west ward for a future homo. And let it be understood, nt once, that I write in the in terest of no land agency or wild western "boom," much of which finds its way into the papers of the country, and of which the western home seeker may allow quite a margin. The plain facts are much the most profit able, both to the emigrant nnd the country to which be emigrates. A misled and dis appointed population results iu no good to either party. I much prefer to give actual facts, and if any of my friends wish to in vestigate further, would rather have them find my putting of the case below, than in an exngerated form. Much of this "boom ing" disappoints and misleads. First of all our whereabouts. A glance ai the map will locate our county in the ex treme southwest of tho State of Minnesota, north of the corner county, hence in cli mate much as Ce .tral W.sconsin, Northern Iowa aud 8, iiithern Dakota.. The name of the county is "Pipestone," comes from a peculiar soft red stone near our county seat, that for ages has been prized very highly by almost all Northwest tribes of In dians, of which they make their Peace Pipes, mostly shaped iu the form of toma hawks and spearheads. The Indians ob tained from tho Government a reservation of a mile square, including this quarry, to which the different tribes make an annual visit to procure their supplies of stone. The face of the country is a clean open prairie; uot a natural tree in the county, and yet tree growing on "tree claims" and otherwise are started very easily and grow very rapidly. Ten acres of land near my Come, sot out nine years ago, will now very likoly average thirty feet high. The soil of our county is a very uniformly black, rich soil. I think it not too much to say that theie is not a quarter section (ICO acres) in the county to be called poor land. Tho only draw buck to any portion is an oc casional over. proportion of swail or marsh, rendering it undesirable as farming land, of our county, with the exception of an out cropping ledge of stone in connection with the "FipeBtone" quarry, bnt entirely differ eut, and which furnishes an inexhaustable supply of the finest building Btone. Our soil is so clean that a plow might be started aud for a mile not strike an object to break the furrow. Of the development of our county thus far, I may speak a little. When, on account of the serious affliction of my wife, I resigned my work as a pastor in the Wisconsin Conference and came here ail(i entered my "homestead" six years ago last September, there were not twelve fam- 7 to ilies who had wintered iu the county the previoUR winter ; our nearest railroad and point of supplies, provifiions, coal, eto., was thirty-three miles south of us. Most of our fuel was the natural product of the soil huy. Much of our building material was "Minnesota brick" barren sod. During the first winter two little stores sot up in what was our contemplated county seat, the stakes and outline of which, like many other western cities, made a fine dis play on paper. As to railroads, telegraph, and such like luxuries that we fancied the distauce, aud often discussed their prob able coming, but finally concluded that in five years we could thus come in connec tion with the outside, we would be getting along nicely. But time went swiftly by. Mouths often, in these western couutries, seem to bring the development of years. On the 2Gth of November fourteen months after our arrival, and four months before the Legislature had given us an existence as county the last rail was laid into county seat aud the locomotive stopped with us over night. We only had one room then in the village that would afford capac ity for the hearty frontier festival the scat tered people gave tue railroad boys that nitfbt on their arrival. AVe have now seven stores, embracing every line of merchandise, two banks, three hotels, one of which cost twenty-five thous and dollars, three stone business blocks, costing respectively nine, eleven and twen- ty-two thoiiHand dollars, a fine school house, j routing fifteen thousand dollars, two 1 churches, and though not six years old 1 of ou ' ; a aud by to 11 the for they we have three lines of railroad, twoof which reached us tho past seanon, and one of them has reached a point fifty miles northwont our place nud is pushing on for lUtunarck and with from twelve to fifteen trains day sweeping by us it really looks like Iustead of one mail a week, as first, we now have five inailB a day. looks after all like "boom" talk, and these are a few of the actual facts of paKt six years. Now, I see my sketch is extending, j yet I have not touched on our products, water, health, price of laud, opening for homes, etc. Questions that back iu the older portion of the country are anxious to know about ; and the wonder with me is, why bo many men and men of small families dig away those old couutries, when the price of forever precludes the probability of securiug a home, wheu, if they do nojwant to go onto the frontier and take a and is i stead, they cau now procure the ve(y want do of land where public improvements, kets and schools are settled fact) ' than one half the price paid back home couutry. On my visit hon J ter I saw land selling in the southeast of your county and Adams county, that was I nearly worn nut, for two and threo times I "ie price of land iu onr county that can be bought, and is in sight of the railroad. Just a w ord of our w inter and then I close, lest I wenry, at hast tho patience of the printer. Yon nre probably shivering for us, in your climates you call "south," and wondering how we endure these northwest cold winters. Our winter thus far has been really fine, not a half inch of snow yet, mi til last night, when about three Inches fell. Not a drop of rain has fallen since Novem ber set in. Onr ground froze up about the fifteenth of November, Bnd but few days have been so cold that workmen could not continue their work even on the outside of buildings under way. Yet the cold has been so uniform that no mud has been seen and our roads are as smooth as in July. Onr winters are characterized with a high, dry uniformity of cold thnt very much re lieves ns of the suffering wpposedtobe our lot. Indeed, let me suggest that my good friends of Highland and Adams counties cease shivering for us aud think a little of their conglomerate, rain, snow and nind, as I met it while there last winter. But I must at least for tho present close and with the consent of the editor may more anon. J. L. SUTTRON. PHESTONE, MINN, Dec. 15, 1884. Transfers of Real Estate. E. E. Edwards to W. T.

Court of Common Pleas. in ' if our neat yet of Our report last week said that Dick Haines would plead guilty to the charge of rape: but when he was brought into court, upon being questioned in repard to the charge an stated in the indictment, he plead not guilty; tins put Air. Vance, ins attorney, in a rather precarious situation. Mr. Vance said, when he question- ed HaincB privately, in regard to the matter, that he had repeatedly conieRsea his guilt; but when in open court his plea was, "not RUilty," and there was no other alternative than to give the prisoner a trial. A special venire was issued, a new jury impaneled, and another trial had, which was heard Tueaday, the 23d. The boy appears as though Nature in her dis tribution ol mental capacity had Blighted him, and that any other expression would be more applicable to him than mens satta in corjtore Sana.
