MARGARET GALL. One day last week, while William Loyd was trying to teir down part of one of the partitions in the old mud house, the whole partition gave way, breaking through the floor, taking Mr. L. and a colored man with it to the cellar, a distance of 20 feet. Both were pretty badly hurt, Mr. Loyd's arm was nearly broken, while the colored man re ceived a painful wound in the back caused by one of the fulling stones.

Quite a number of our citizens took ad vantage of the reduced rates to Cincinnati this week, during Forepaugh'sstay there. There will be uo meeting of the It. C. T. this month, as the the teachers are all busy closing schools, having examinations, etc. Mr. Flint Rockhold, accompanied by his sistor, Mrs. Emma Foraker, and Mrs. Aus tin Rockhold, left for Cincinnati Monday to visit relatives. The card of Governor Hart appears in an other column. The Governor's ability as a lawyer is so well known that any comments from us are unnecessary. Mr. Ed. Richards wishes us to inform the public that he has shut down his feed mill, until September, to make improve ments and add new machinery. E. and H. Zimmerman will sell at public auction at the stock pens next Saturday a car load of Indian ponies. They are now at the stock pens and can be bought before theu if desired. We commence this week the publication of a new serial, ''Driven from Sea to Sea ; or Just a Catupiu'." This Btory iB by C. C. Post, editor of the Chicago Express, and is written iu his graphic and entertaining fyle. The Board of Health should now begin to watch the corners a little, and cause to be cleaned up the accumulation of garbage that naturally collects at the back doors and alloys during the winter. This is im portant and we hope to see them use dili gence in the matter. The graduating cIbbs of the college called at our office the other day. The proprietor bad just stepped out and the foreman, in a somewhat embarrassed manner, entertained the young ladies by showing them our sam ples of programmes, wedding invitations, etc. Richard, our ladies' man, explained the phenomena of the printing press, after which they left well pleased (we hope) with their visit. The residence of J. H. Richards has been successfully heated by a steam-heater during the past two months. One evening last week we had the pleasure of examining the apparatus and we were very much sur prised to learn how valuable it was in the way of economy and to his dwelling. The engine is placed iu the cellar, which keeps all the dust from the coal and ashea from the other departments of the house, and the steam is carried through many pipes to all the rooms, by which a uniform temper ature is experienced. The amount of heat used in the house depends upon the weather, but one pound of steam will fur nish heat for the entire dwelling when the thermometer stands six degrees below zero. Mr. R. says that the amount of coal used in the furnace is the same quantity he for merly used iu his base-burner. The meeting of the executive committee of tho Highland County Teachers's Institute was called last Saturday ou account of the petition from Leesburg, which was publish ed in our last week's paper. There was no immediate action taken, and the committee adjourned until more could be heard on the subject. The petition asked the committee to hold the Institute at Leesburg, aud offer ed the same accommodations that they have been accustomed to iu the past. The citi zens of that town also offer the teachers boarding at reduced rates. This is good for the teachers and is much more than liills boro has done iu the past, although Lees burg's situation is not as suitable as Hiilsboro's, and will be unconvenient for those teachers who live south and west of Hills boro and who have beeu in the habit of at tending the Institute and boarding at home. If the Institute was held at Leesburg they would be compelled to board there while they are in attendance. It is a well known fact that liillsboro has never offered the teachers any inducements to hold their In stitute here ; but unless she does they will not hold forth here as long as the smaller villages oiler advantages superior to our natural ones. The teachers are not a flock of geese and do not have to come to liills boro each year to he picked. New Vienna offers the executive committee pay to hold the Institute there this year. They need the money, and it would be fortunate them to aooept the offer, and furthermore the money can be applied practically. The benefit the Teachers' Institute has beeu our city has never been appreciated by our citizens, and Hillsboro has never taken any pains to entertain the teachers duriug the Institute. The locatiou is a natural advan tage which can not be excelled by any town iu Highland county. Hillsboro is the prop- por place to hold the Institute, and if gome person to whose interest it is to hold it here will get out a paper and see what induce ments our hotels to whose interest it is greatobt will offer aud present it to ou the members of the excutive committee might stand some show, otherwise, we will not. this Coul nil. g:is ami Hinging ate in rent de. maud O'l Clear creek. Several persons will be baptised at the M. E. Church next Sunday morning. The Presbyterian General Assembly meets at Cincinnati to-morrow, (Thursday.)

Ross says that the pair of young skunks who sleep together at night in the east end of town and come forth at break of day to throw their vile odor on people go ing by, aro becoming a public pest, aud should be exterminated by tho dogs. Also that they have minds as comprehensive as a snake's, aud that it was owing to this order of intellect that they made a failure in their profession after years of trial aud had to grab up a small office for support. As to the charge mado in the Herald he says he never was iu Springfield, Ills., and knows no one there so far as he is aware, and that it would be very "strange," as it asserts, for him t J send such an article among total strangers for publication. He admits though that the piece is doubtless the work of some of his friends, and on whom he will rely for further support and vindication. Quite a hail -storm passed over yesterday afternoon.

This church was dedicated July Cth, 1884, and has from that time beeu in a prosperous condition and well attended. The prosperity of this church is due to the euergolic class of peo ple who live iu that vicinity. The church is not very large, but has a fins location aud is handsomely fixed on the inside. Result of Cold Weather. Feibel's great "out price" sale of cloth ing, boots and shoes is creating a furor all over the county. The weather has been against the clothing dealors this spring, but "Feibel" proposes to make gopd go. He says, "Spring goods must be sold, even if I give more than my profits to my patrons." He has cut prices tremendously ,and is giving values that have never before been known in HillBboro. 9 10 suits are going for 8 ; $12 suits for $10; $ 18 and $'20 suits for $15. The out ia boots and shoes is iu the same proportion is clothing. Every de partment feels the cut, and 1' eibel seems to be doing the trade of the oounty. C. & M. Railway. Paul's advice, "add to your faith pa tience," is eminently applicable to the af fairs of this road. Col. Picard, of Colum bus, the engiueer, was iu town last Wednes day, and was interviewed by our reporter. The Colonel stated that although the ar rangements referred to in last week's News for the extension of the road are not yet ooinpleted, they are progressing satisfactor ily, and he expressed great confidence that a favorable result will soon be reached. The annual meeting for the election of direotors will be held here next Tuesday, May 2tith, at 10 a. m , and a fullatteudance of the stockholders is desirable, as there may be other business of importance to lay before them. Decoration Day at Rainsboro. to of we Comrade Henry Cowgill will take charge of the lower Quaker Cemetery. This place was omitted by mistake iu former announcement. The ceremonies of the G. A.

The Pout will assemble at Headquarters at 10 o'clock, sharp, and proceed in a body to the M. K. Church. A cordial invitation is extended U) the public, By order Committee Ahranokuknts. The Highland County Teachers' Association. The te.i' lii ri of Highland county have a reason to feel a degree of pride- in the II. C. T. A. Not only the teachers, but the people iu general should have A growing desire (o see this Association built up, and become the foremost iu the State. It m being built up, and is meeting with remark able success and kind encouragement, although some oV-iooiiragcmeiils. At first thought, ono would suppose that not one dissenting voice would be beard against on association of this kind. Hut, unfortunate ly for the croakers themselves, there aro a few such. And poor, weak, whining drones! the sensible workers aro stinging thorn out of tho hives; for somo of thene few croakers carry the name of tkachkii. That is a word that carries with it a defini tion no lexicographer has ever given it. It is indeed painful to bo compelled to notice such humiliating acts of fellow-nu n, but if noeessary. wo could substantiate every statement. There are many teachers who do not attend the monthly meeting of tho If. C. T. A., because it is something like an impossi bility to do so, on account of surrounding circumstances. These have the irill and are worthy. Kven by their absence we m et encouragement and become more en thusiastic. Hero lies one of tho two-fold advantages in having the meetings held in different towns and villages throughout the county. It is not the object of this short communication to' enter into detail about the merits of the Association, or the good it is doing and will do the teachers who at toud and the communities iu which the meetings ore held; but, wero that our theme, we imagine we might make Glad stone blusb(?) for want of rhetorical power at loast do wn have faith enough iu the causa to believe that every croaker would blush (aye, more) would he take to heart the great interests at stake, and seek to know what this Association could teach him. But our comfort lies in the fact that those uusympathetic friends are few. The teachers iu general do pride themselves iu their Association, and aro willing to lend a helping hand. The people, too, aro be coming to know this spirit better; to help the weak but williug teacher, and appre ciate the labors of the zealous, conscien tious teacher. Teachers and citizens, come out to the next H. C. T. A. meoting and enter into the camestuess of the work. We under stand that some action will likely be taken at the next mectiug toward securing the co-operation of the teachers and people iu establishing an educational journal at Hills boro. Why not? Don't we need it? Can't we have it V Hy persistent effort on the part of those interested and deeply con cerned iu the cause of education, we think that such au undertaking would be a clear possibility. Southern Ohio needs a repre sentative educational journal, and liillsboro is tho educational apex and center for such au institution. A. B. O. Court of Common Pleas.
