where a sumptuous collation was
served up. through the courtesy of the
High Street Railroad Company. On the
way to the Dining Hall we observed
there was considerable attraction down
by the Springs, which are of a slightly
mineral character. On the occasion re
ferred they also partook of a spiritous
nature occasioned by an admixture from
sundry private glasses. However, every
body turned up "straight as a Btring"
the Dining Hall, with appetites which
for a while threatened to exhaust the
base of supplies. Dinner over, Loomis
was on hand with orders for the cars and
Sullivant street school. The return trip
was without incident, other than lifting
the cars on the track several times, and
speculating upon the growth of the city,
whioh had almost made Goodole Park
central location. We reached the Capi
tol in good season, and leaving the cars
started for the
SULLIVANT STREET SCHOOL.
where we were met by Prof. R.
Stevenson, Superintendent of the pub
lio schools. Prof. Stevenson was
merly Superintendent of the Schools
Norwalk, where he established so good
a reputation as a pnblio instructor
the State Capitol reached out for him.
By him we were introduced to the
principal, and then we divided
squads, visiting the different rooms,
spending about ten minutes in each.
The teachers exhibited their scholars
satisfactorily, and showed to what a
gree of proficiency they had attained,
by the usual tests. The scholars in
lower rooms, evinced an excellent knowl
edge of geography and drawing,
well posted in the productions of
different parts of the country, and

fellow was so anxious for the honor

but he was in too much of a hurry,
the teacher suggested it was a mistake
unless that Stato had recently been mov

the room where Miss Cora Barrett,
of Norwalk, taught, that we

bore themselves like gentlemen;
girls (young ladies,) were equally
dressed and well behaved, but we could
not fail to notice that many of them had
;boen hard students, and had, in conse-
nuence. impaired their eyo sight At
least so many of them wore glnws, that
we could not roach any other conclusion
from appearances, and wo were not al
lowed to ask questions. Should the
complaint affect many more, we would
prescribe an occnlist as an addition to
tho faculty. The first piece of music on
the programme was "Men of Harlach,"
a chorus, which was well rendered.
This was followed by a declamation by
one of the young men, entitled "The
Traitor's Death Bed." It was well ren
dered, and showed the studont as a care
ful elocutionist. Then came "Spring's
Delights," a part song, which showed
the voices to advantage. Then followed
"Roirer and I." by a younor miss, who
sustained her part well. "In a Wood,'
well sung, followed, and then "The Dy

gentleman, who had evidently stndied
Shakespeare's advice to the players.
Then "America" was sung as a chorus,
and the exhibition closed.
Brother Hopley was called on for
some remarks, and responded, in an
able manner, but came near turning the
meeting into a political gathering. He
was followed by M'Gregor, of the Stark
County Democrat, who quoted Shakes
peare liberally and made, altogether,
very pleasant speech.
The school was then dismissed, the
editors took posession of the hall, ap
pointed a committee to draft resolutions
and then adjourned to witness the Capi
tal City Cadets drill, which, however,
did not take place till we reached the
deaf and dumb asylum. While waiting
ing, Dave Fisher's stomach began to
rebel because of some water he had
taken, and he had recourse to Hopley's
.private gloss for relief. After a few
minutes spent in trying to- draw the

via the Long Street Railroad for the

which we reached in season to attack
a splendid collation which had been pre
pared by citizens.' For a time little else
was thought of but eating, for
seemed hungry; but the popping
champaign, and sparkling catawba,
a zest to the entertainment and a "flow

Putman, and Thompson, and Donald

pithy speeches, which were in turn

About seven o'clock we again took'the

were courteously received. Soon after
our arrival the sounds of musio

The visitors took possession of the

OLIVER HOUSE HOTEL, TOLEDO
A First-class and Old Established
A First-class and Old Established Commercial and Family Hotel---Admirably
Constructed and Replete In
One of the earliest hotels of any mag
nitude, if not the first, in Toledo, was
the popular house referred to. which.
has always enjoyed a high reputation
and is to this day growing in publia fa-
The Oliver house, and ita neces
sary out-buildings, cover over an aero
and a half of ground, with a frontago
on Broadway of 250 feet and 150 feet on
Ottawa street being looated near the
railroad aud within only a few minutes,
walk from the Union dipot, though
'busses and street cars are constantly in
communications with the honsa, The
present proprietor, Mr. Donald Mc
Donald, originally managed the house
for the heirs of the estate Major W.
Oliver but about twelve months ago
took the business in his hands, since
when some very important improve
ments have been effected. On entering
the main hall of the building 75ft. x
40ft flunked by the offije, we are coa-
with desks, news tables &&, f or tLe con
fronted venienc of guests, and it at onca
becomes strikingly apparent to. tho eye
that neither pains or expense-have here
been spared to make provisioa for the
comfort of guests. To the right, down
stairs,leads to the labratory and barber's
shop, while tip stairs brings us to the
spacious dining hall, 120 xi, with four
teen neatly laid out tables, which are-,
waited upon by a corps of sixteen ex
perienced waiters. Turning down stair
to the loft, after re-entering the main
hall we came to the billiard room and:
bar, this department being- remarkably
well fitted up. Proceeding ux stairs.
we were next shown over the suits of
rooms and single apartments, when- we-
were perfectly struck with the neatness,
order and serotinous cleanliness of eve
ry apartment The furniture, through
out, is very handsome andmassivemake,.
the carpets for the most part new be
ing nearly all body brussels. Particu
larly handsomely furnished are the bri
dal apartments and the family suites.
There are no less than 134 rooms in the
house, 40 of them being eligible for sam
ple rooms while there are no less than 24
suites. Theentira house is heated byam
improved system of steam, while-the ven
tilation and sanitary arrangements ar a
surpassed in any hotel we ever saw. Of
the cuisine at this house, too muck ear
not be said. Mr. McDonald has ever
had the reputation for providing a table
second to none, and at this, ample proof
will be found in the excellent . bill of
fare that daily graces the tables. Nor
should we here fail to mention, that in
view of the present slackness in com
mercial matters and the scarcity of
money, the proprietor has resolved up
on lowering the tariff of the house to
2.50 per day which new arrangement
tx)k plttoe the first of this month thus
affording all the advantages and com
forts of a first-class, old established and
popular hotel at a 'priee within the
means alike of every one. Mr. Mc
Donald will be found at all times a
gentleman most communicative, atten
tive and accommodating. Ho may be
said to poses3 a life-long experience in
Hotel management, and even to tho
marketing, and general supervision of
the Oliver House, Mr. Ma gives in
cessant, personal attentions Whatever
may be said of other hotels in the city
the Oliver House, in many respects,
emphatically takes the lead. Thugk
within five minutes walk of the leading
thorougfare, it is nevertheless out of
the incessant hurry and worry of busy
streets. Its location is the most healthy
and many of its rooms afford the most
charming prospjots the rural outskirts,
of the city are quite aooessible and the.
general surroundings of tb housa are-
exceptionally pleasant. All the rooms
ore lofty, light aud admirably arranged,
the building has six fixe proof, principle
walls built throughout it, and adjacent
is provided a very fine ice house 200x
50ft. containing over 500 tons of ioa
for ita private use. We congratulate
Mr, McDonald on Lia excellent institu
tion are not in the least surprised at
his popularity with lua gueata, and
would strongly reooommend our readers
to give him call if they desire the beat
of accommodation and to aecure abund-.
