Writer Says Criticism For Taking
Part Personal Liberty League
"Parade Was Unjust.

Editor of News-Heiiald I noticed
an article In the News-Herald last
week signed "Temperance", condemn
ing the lUllsboro Dand for participat
ing in a personal liberty league parade
in Cincinnati last week.
Now, If this narrow minded puritan
thinks he Is helping the Temperance
cause by having such articles published
he is certainly all wrong. The musi
cians of Hlllsboro are, and always have
been, very liberal with their music in
the churches, and for any temperance
cause, for which they have never re
ceived, one cent compensation, and
now, this fanatic is not willing for
them to take a job where they get well
paid for their services, simply because
it is not a temperance parade. I won
der how he expects the band to exist.
I believo that the parade would have
gone through just the same whether
the Hlllsboro Hand had been there or
not and I further believe that the fact
that the band was there will not cause
Highland county to bo placed in the
wet column for a few years, at least.
It is a safe bet that if this same
Saint can get a few more cents for a
load of corn or hay from the Saloon
man than he can from his Freaeher,
' the Booze mixer will get his goods.

Memorial Day Fittingly Ob
served Here With Ap
SPEECH BY GEN. WARN0CK
Essays by School Boys on Flag
Were Very GoodGraves of
Comrades Were Decorated
In The Morning-.
Memorial Day was fittingly observed
In Hlllsboro. The morning was given
over to the decoration of the graves of
the old soldiers.
In the afternoon the parade formed
at 1.30 and after a short march went
to the Soldiers Monument In the Court
House yard where the G A. R. and
W. R. C. hold their beautiful ritualis
tic services in honor of those who have
answerd the last roll call.
After the services at the monument
the parade reformed and went to the
Opera House. The services there were
opened by Dr. E R Slutz who invoked
the blessing of God on the assemblage.
Lincoln's immortal Gettysburg Ad
dress was then read by John Hulltt.
One of the pleasing features of the
afternoon was the reading of essays on
the "American Flag and What It
Means to Me" by Herbert Caldwell
and Max Gustln, boys of the Eighth
Grade. Prizes had been offered by the
local chapter of the D. A. R. to the
boys writing the best essays on that
subject. Young Caldwell had been
awarded the first prize of $3 and young
Gustln second prize of 82, The essays
were well written and well delivered
and would have done credit to adults.
The address of the afternoon was
made by Gen. W. R. Warnock, State
Commander of the G. A. R In his
opening remarks Gen. Warnock con
gratulated the people of Hlllsboro on
having such an excellent band, saying
that every member was a finished
musician, playing not only with me
chanical skill, but with feeling, show
ing that he had music in his soul. He
spoke-of the great hit made by the
band at the National Encampment
and of the pride he felt in thai it came
Gen. Warnock paid a nice tribute to
the local W. R. C. and also did the
very generous act of turning over to
that organization the money to be
paid him for expenses in coming here
to make the address, amounting to
87.50. This money he directed the
treasurer of the G. A. R Post, John
McMullen to pay to the ladles.
The words of Gen. Warnock had
greater weight with his audience than
the ordinary speaker as he had served
three years and a half in the Civil War
and had experienced the dangers,
trials and privations of that great
struggle. He told of the making of
-Memorial Day as a national holiday
and pleaded that it be properly ob
served ; that it be not simply a.hollday
for rest and recreation but that the
people observe It in the spirit in which
it was named by commemorating the
deeds of valor and sacrifices of those
who had offered their lives for their
country. His', stories of particular
deeds of heroism and of young boys
who died on the field of battle, both
stirred the blood and brought tears to
the eyes of ills hearers.
He closed with an eloquent tribute
to the flag andan appeal to this genera
tion to always have it stand as the
emblem of freedom and liberty, that
they always love and stand ready to
defend It and ever keep it unsullied. I
The audience then sang America
and were dismissed with a benediction
by Dr. W. H. Shields. .

Hlllsboro suffered their first defeat
Sunday afternoon at the Fair Ground
by the score of 5 to 3. The Cincinnati
Reserves were the team which dragged
the boys down to defeat.
Vanzant was on the mound for
Hlllsboro and would' have got away
with good support. The fourth was
the disastrous inning when three hits,
by the visitors, one for two bases, and
errors by Moorhead and Fisher netted
four runs and the game. The policy
of bunching your errors with the oppo
nents hit usually results In defeat.
The Reserves is the best team that
has been here this year and the game
was the best of the season an exciting
and interesting contest well worth
A sensational catch by Fisher was
the fe'ature of the game.

The large business building, owned
by Julius Druhot and Carey Long and
occupied by N. S. Mann, at Mowrys
town, was destroyed by fire Saturday
The loss is estimated at 310,000, par

having $5,000 on his stock of goods and
Druhot & Long $2,500 on the building.
At first it was greatly feared that
the fire would spread and the whole
town be destroyed and It was only
through strenuous efforts that this
was prevented. Mowrystown has
neither waterworks nor a fire engine
and the only mode of fighting the fire
was with buckets, but everyone turned
out and helped and the town was

by them and throw buckets of water
on them. The fire was so hot that
the men could not stand and fight it.

from a defective flue, Mr. Mann hav

stove that evening before closing the

Roberts, a son of Ira Q Roberts, and

closing with the graduating exercises
at Bell's Opera House that night.
The class was composed of thirty
seven boys and girls who had success
fully completed the prescribed course.
When the curtain arose on this fino
body of young people, grouped on the
stage and wearing caps and gowns, It
was an inspiring sight and the audi

The address of the evening was
made by Hon. Charles L. Swain, of
Cincinnati, speaker of the Ohio House
of Representatives, ne spoke of the
necessity for training of the head,
hands and heart, especially the latter.
In this day, he said, that a good educa
tion was more essential than ever
before, while more opportunities were
open to young people than ever before,
they were open only to young people
with trained minds and trained hands.
He told of the new school system
adopted by the last state legislature
and of what was hoped for It by Its
authors. He closed with an appeal to
the people to give this system a thor
ough trial, to try it believing it to be
for the general good and to make the
school house the social center of each
Prof. Patterson in a few well chosen
words presented the graduates with
their diplomas. He said that every
member of the class had completed the
work creditably, that not a single
condition stood against a one of them.
Before presenting the diplomas,
Prof. Patterson announced the prize
winners of the debate and oratorical
contest held at the Washington school
building a few days before. Huggart
McMullen won the oratorical prize and
Robert Duffy, first prize and Miss Anna
Hindman, second prize as debators.
The prizes were given by the members
of the Highland county bar and were,
first prize, $10, second prize, $5. The de

ing It. Mr. Patterson stated that he
hoped to make the Oratorical Contest
an annual event.
The music was furnished by the
Appollo Quart6tte of Cincinnati and
everyone enjoyed it thoroughly. The
men had splendid voices and their
selections were popular.
On Thursday night the Class Exer
cises were held at the Opera House
and were thoroughly enjoyed by the
large audience which packed the
Russell Fling ano Perln McDermott
gave the Class Prophecy. They were
dressed as fishermen and found the
prophecy In a fish they caught. The
future of each member of the class
was given and the clever references to
the peculiarities and ambitions of the
different members were highly appre
ciated especially by the young people.
The class poem was by Miss Violet
Morgan and was well written and
'The class play, "Taming of the
Shrew,', make a distinct hit, all of the
members of the class having parts and
the presentation was unusually good.
The leading parts were taken by Miss
Marjory Wilson, Huggart McMullen
and George McConnaugjey, who very
cleverly read their lines, displaying
not a little hlstronl'c ability.
Mrs. Conard Roads had rewritten
and brought the play up to date. In
this she showed unusual ability, tl o
lines sparkling with wit, satire and
irony. The many local references
brought forth hearty laughs. The
Luke McLuke Club was a distinct hit,
