, 1 utu.sncno. onto: Wcincsiay.Kay 27C5. The signs are all favorable for an unusually large corn crop this year. The first delegates to the Repub lican State Convention whose ap pointment is announced, are from Coshocton county, and it is stated they are unanimous for Foraker. A recent letter from Cleveland to the Commercial-Gazette, says that Judge Foraker is the almost unani mous choice of the Republicans of the Reserve as the candidate for Governor. The Prohibition party of Ohio are counting on a large increase of their vote next fall, and the Republican State Convention should take the wind out of their sails by putting a local option plank in the platform. The difficulty between England and Russia seems no nearer a peace able solution, and the London Times of last Friday says that public anxiety in England is increasing. The House of Commons has adjourn ed till the 4th of June. Ex Secretary of State Frelinghuy sen died at his home in New Jersey last week after a lingering illness. His administration of the State De partment under Fresident Arthur, was wise and prudent and reflected credit upon himself and the Nation. The President has appointed W. T. Bishop, of Cincinnati, son of ex Governor Bishop, Collector of In ternal Revenue in that city. The selection appears to giye general sat isfaction, though it is said to be dis tasteful to Boss McLean of the En quirer. President Cleveland has been call ed upon to revoke another of his ap pointments, on the ground of unfit ness. He recently appointed one Williams as U. S. Marshal of Iowa, and now the Democratic State Cen tral Committee have unanimously requested his removal. England has at last decided to abandon the Soudan and is with drawing her troops. It is a pity she could not have reached this decision before the sacrifice of the heroic Gordon and so many other valuable lives, but nations, like individuals learn wisdom only by experience. The Chillicothe Leader is trying to mislead the Republicans of old Ross in their choice of a candidate for Governor, but we have reliable advices that the treat majority of them are for "our Ben" Foraker, and that they will send a delegation to Springfield which will be solid in his support. The Chillicothe Leader wants Major V. W. Peabody, the well known and popular railroad man, as the Repub lican candidate for Governor. Maj. Peabody is an excellent man for the position he occupies, but the people of Ohio do not want for Governor the representative of any great rail road or other corporation. Victor Hugo, the eminent French statesman, poet and novelist, died in Paris last Friday, at the advanced age of 83. The Ministry requested the Chamber of Deputies to adjourn in honor to his memory, and his funeral will be conducted at the ex pense of the Government. It is ex pected to be one of the grandest ever witnessed in France. There is no Prohibition party in Kentucky, Maryland, Georgia, Tex as, Florida, or any other Southern State, where the people have the power to regulate the liquor traffic for themselves, under efficient local option laws. The reason is obvious. The object of such a party being practically attained by other means, there is no excuse for its existence. If we had local option in Ohio, the Prohibition party would dwindle down to less than a corporal's guard within five years. President Cleveland made the great blunder of sending a dispatch 10 the Democrats in the Illinois Leg i.lature, urging them to prevent the re-election of Gen. Logan. Fortu nately his interference proved of no avail. On hearing of his dispatch some of the leading Republicans of Des Moines, Iowa, sent the President the following answer : Des Moinks. Iowa, May 20 fSpeciall Some of the leading Re nublicans here last night sent Presi dent Cleveland the following tele gram : To S. Grover Cleveland, Washington: The Republicans of Iowa send their compliments to your excellency and congratulate you on the benefi cent results of your dispatch Illinois, (Send any one but Logan.) Thank God, the Republicans of our sister State delight to honor the man tvho will beat you in 1088. Nnll.-p tif ?t oct In? U I IVtcgrttft to l'cpnliH' an Mst" CunTMtlinn.

Ily ord"r of Committee. CYRUS NEWBY, Chairman. Plymoth, Pa., has recently been visited by a severe and fatai epi demic, the cause of which has been traced to impurity of the water sup ply, the wells being poisoned by seapage from neighboring cess-pools. Cincinnati was visited last Thurs day by a terrible calamity very simi lar to the one which recently oc curred in Brooklyn, N. Y. A large job printing office on Sixth street, adjoining the Gait House, took fire from the explosion of a can of ben zine and fourteen girls and one man employed in th; establishment, lost their lives, mostly by suffocation, though several were killed by jump ing from the upper story windows, there being no fire escapes and their retreat by the only stairway, which was but two feet wide, being cut off. So rapid was the progress of the flames, that though the fire took place early in the afternoon and the firemen turned out promptly, the awful destruction of human life was accomplished before they could get their ladders up to rescue the unfor tunate victims. A terrible respon sibility rests on some one for the neglect to provide adequate means of escape to the employes. Only last year, a similar dreadful calamity occurred in a rag warehouse in the same block, by which about a dozen lives were lost. It is to be hoped the proper authorities will now make a searching investigation to ascer tain how many more such death traps exist in the city, and do some thins for the protection of human life. General Logan Re-elected. The long contest in the Illinois Legislature over the election of a U. S. Senator to succeed General Logan, resulted on Tuesday of last week in his re-election by exactly the num ber of votes required, 103. The re suit was received with great rejoic ing by the Republicans throughout the whole country, and hundreds congratulatory dispatches were re ceived by General Logan, among them one from Mr. Blaine as follows WASHINGTON, May 19. "Hon. John A. Logan, Springfield 111. : "I congratulate you most cordially Your contest is unprecedented Your is memorable. "JAMES G. BLAINE." After his election was announced Gen. Logan made an admirable speech acknowledging the great honor conferred upon him by his re election for a third term, and referr ing to the extraordinary character of the contest, which though stub born and prolonged, he was happy to say, was marked by no bitterness of feeling. I he re-election ot General Logan secures a good, working Republican majority in the U. S. Senate, through out. the present administration, which renders his triumph one of national importance, as well as in the highest degree complimentary to himself. A Petition.

Two carriage loads of young lady monibersof the Catholic Church of this place, visited Hillsboro on Thursday for the purpose of bid ding the llev. M. Hayes good-bye. Every effort was made by both members and private citizens, to induce the Arch Bishop to allow the reverend gentleman to remain in his pres ent position, without avail, l'robably no mill Inter was bo universally respected and beloved by any congregation, as was ltev. Hayes by his Greenfield membership, and lie had also made many friends outside of the church, who were loath to see him removed to pastures now. In passing west on Main Btreet one evening last week, the writer's attention was attracted by the loud noiso made by a certain married lady accusing tho husband of infidelity. The husband was evidently under the inlluence liquor, hence paid but little attention to the remarks of his better half, which only added fuel to tho already liery furnace, and quicker than it takes to tell it, tho enraged wife deliv ered a few telling blows on the husband's head, but strange to say with little eff ect. The stupid husband oniy retorted by saying, "when you have got enough just let me know." "Oh, you hard hearted wretch," cried the lady in utter despair, "I will go back to my mother." This was too much for the writer and compelled him to move on, w hile tears large as a good sized walnut, slowly trickled down his check. It was enough to melt the heart of the average Indian sign of a first class cigar store. The Ohio Southern Depot, of this place, was entered by burglars on Wednesday night, and two valises, one trunk and numerous articles of clothing taken therefrom. An entrance was effected by forcing tiie fastenings oil' the i top of one of the windows facing the creek.

Deceased has been ailing for the past ten dins, with a severe cold, anil was really not in a condition to attend the funeral of his beloved wife, which took place only one ween ngo. ai r. Harper was in the eighty- eighth year of his age, and had been a resident of Fayette county for a number of years, was well and favorably known, and a man whose word was? an good as his bond. The death of his wife, which occurred only ten days ago, was undoubtedly one of tho causes which led to his death, while financial matters, in which his entire possessions were likely to be taken away, through a security ilelit for a friend also gave him much trouble. Deceased was. until it was found necessary to pay the security debt, in excellent linanoial condition, owning a lino farm of probably three or four hundred acres of line Fayotto county land, and a com fortable bank account besides, nearly all of which will eventually go toward paying the security debt, leaving scarcely nothing for his surviving daughter. The funeral services will probably take place this, Monday, afternoon. On Friday evening Jie orchestra was invited to take tea at Hotel de Watt, and alter enter taining the guests for a brief period, they re paired to Mr. It. N.

Everybody present just whooped and veiled. ! ad ltobert put up the instrument and said come tako a cigar. Some refused a cigar but offered to tako a ham or suck of flour, inas much as that it was a good Joke, and showed conclusively of Hubert's luck of knowledgo of musical instruments. In making a short trip away from home, either on business or pleasure, it not unfre quently occurB that one fulls in w ith a pleasant companion, either tnalo or female, and thuB the journey is made more quickly, apparently, or at least time hangs less heavily on one's hands. Of course it is not always best to form the acquaintance of certain rapid young ladies on the train, especially when returning home, and both are to get oil at the same station, and the lady refuses to make known the person whom she cxpectB to visit. Such a case occurred quito recently, in which a cer tain young man of this plaeo was returning home from a business trip near Springlield, and when the train arrived at Washington Court House, a well known soiled dove, flashily dressed, entered the coach, ad luckily took a seat beside the verdant young man. Not many mile posts were passed before a con versation was indulged in between the two, aud the courtesan so concealed her true colors and conversed so exceedingly well, as to com pletely captivate the unsophisticated young man, and before the train reached Good Hope, his heart was beating up and down like churn dasher. Arrangements were made call, and when tho conductor announced the safe arrival at Greedfield, w hat did the verdant young man do but seize hold of the traveling satchel belonging to tho gay companion, and after gaining terra tirma, ottered to see her np town. This was too much for tho gang of boys usually found at the depot, who were not slow in guying tho couple, whereupon the ver dant young man studied a largo size rat, and in making some excuse, returned to the depot, where he was informed regarding the true character of his gay companion, "A narrow escape, for I was about to walk up town with her, hut keep it quiet," said the now much ex cited young man.

Children's Short Pants Suits, worth 3.00, cut to 2.00. Hoys' Long Pants Suits, many styles, cut to value. Gentlemen's Pantaloons Cut to $i, $2, $3. I will sell good dark Cassimerc Suits for $5-00. Splendid, handsome, fashionable Plaid Suits for $7.00. A very superior, dark mixed Cheviot Suit for 8.00. ELEGANT ALL-WOOL SUITS FOR $10.00. At $12 and 15 I will sell suits that cost me as much to make up. 0. A. FEIB Main St., Opp. County Jail, Hillsboro, O. AR WOOLEN Mr, i T Q 3 Heretofore leased and operated by J. II.

May 15, 1885,2 Wickercham & Robinson. Another Dcifile Fought ! This time victory crowns the standard of the English. For many weeks England has used every means to avert war. Hut Russia's arrogance becoming insupportable, they fight and England wins. The history of nations show forth at any time no greater forbearance than has been shown by Great ISritain. Possessed of every facility to accommodate, to make hap py, and to give to their countrymen the greatest number of the best bargains, the firm of A. J. Lytle & Sons, Grocers, still keeps the lead as the place to buy your groceries. Buy ing at the very lowest figures they are enabled to furnish their customers with a better article of goods and at lower prices than any firm in town. Avoiding every useless expense, do ing the work themselves, without the aid of hired help, they can therefore sell at a great deal less profit than any firm in town. Try them and see. Try their tobaccos, warranted to be cheaper than any in the town. Try their canned fruit, warranted to give better satisfaction for less money than can be bought anywhere else. We wish to call the attention of everybody, especially the country retail grocers, to our very full line of Coffees, which we warrant to give excellent satis faction, and be very low in price. We know times are very hard, and farmers it behooves you, if you wish to save your little save, to save all you can. A. J. Lytle & Sons will save you more money than auy firm in this city.
