Col. Geo. Merritt, of Waterbury Watch Co. s ETING HISTORICAL SOCIETY ME HELD AT THE COURT HOUSE ON LAST SATURDAY. SEVERAL NEW ARTICLES 2immi is Hi Received by the Society Which Are of Historical Value and High 7 ly Prized. The quarterly meeting of the Wayne County Historical Society Saturday afternoon was one of the best attended of the meetings the so ciety lias held in Richmond. The so ciety met in the court house at 2 p. m., Prof. Cyrus Hodgin presiding. After the adoption of the minutes of the November' meeting, Mrs. Ben jamin Starr arose and presented to the society the coffee kettle used by Sidney Smith in making varnish. For twenty-four years this kettle hung in front of Johnson & Woodhurst 's store on Main street. In behalf of the society Prof. Hodgin accepted this valuable gift. Mrs. Starr fur ther offered to present a stone from the old National bridge. This stone is near her residence on B street and has been appropriately inscribed by citizens of Richmond. On motion of Reuben Myrick and at the sugges tion of the chair, Walter Ratliff, the assistant curator, was appointed to secure the stone. . Mr. John W. Foulke presented the headlight used by the first boat com imr into Cambridge City on the Whitewater canal. The headlight contains 03 small glasses. Prof. Ault was appointed by the chair as a com mittee to place on the headlight a card beariug the appropriate histori cal data. Mr. Foulke further presented a copy of the proceedings of an edu cational convention held in Richmond tory of the Pennsylvania railroad. Mr. Reeves and Mr. Van Deusen were appointed a committee to secure a copy of that history' for the society- Messrs. Valentine and Reuben My rick also participated in the discus sion. The second number on the program was an original poem entitled "Pio neer Reminiscences' ' by Rev. Luke Woodward of Fountain City. In the author's absence, the poem was read by Prof .Hodgin and its alue was attested by the close attention given to the reading. On motion of Caleb King the society extended a vote of appreciation to Mr. Woodward. In, the discussion Dr. Jay said the poem had brought vividly to his mind the days gone bye. In 1835 his fath er had -moved into the green woods of Grant county. The nearest neigh bor was ten miles distant. Dr. Jay said he was the oldest of a family of ten children of whom he alone is living. One of the most interesting ad dresses ever given before the society was the account of the New Orleans meeting of the American Historical Association by Mr. Jesse S. Reeves. This meeting Mr. Reeves attended Christmas week reading a paper in the "Treaty of Guadaloupe" Hid algo, 1S4S, the treaty closing our war with Mexico. Mr. Reeves explained that the meeting was held Christ mas week because most of the members of the association were en gaged in academic work. This was the first meeting held in the far south, and may be said to have been in celebration of the 100th anniver sary of the transfer of the Louisiana territory by France to the United States. The formal transfer occurr ing in New Orleans Dec. 20, 1S03. The occasion was marked by festivi ties of a social nature covering sev eral days. The people of New Orleans wanted the Louisiana Purchase Exposition held there but St. Louis had won by greater enterprise. On December 20th under the aus pices of the Louisiana Historical so ciety exercises appropriate to the oc casion Ave re held in the old Spanish building used for the ceremonies of 1S03. Many of the young ladies wore the ball dresses worn in 1S03. The sessions of the American His torical association were held the week .following Christmas. The entire ses- in May, IS 11; a premium list of the , sion was devoted to the subject of the Wayne County Agricultural Louisiana Purchase. Among the pa- fair of 1S."2: and an autograph notice in the handwriting of James L. Morrisson, bearing date of accepting the office of treasurer of a young mens' so ciety of Richmond. Mr. Reuben Myrick presented by permission of the officers the signa ture book of the First National Bank. This book was the second Na tional bank in Indiana and the seven teenth in the United States. The above gifts on motion of Prof. Ault were all accepted. The secretary deposited with the society a file of the Chicago Record-Herald for 1S92 and 1S93. The first paper of the afternoon was by Mr. James Van Deusen on "The Pioneer Railroad of Ohio." This was an entertaining description of the building of the Little Miami railroad. November 17, 1814, "came the puffing of the locomotive into Cincinnati. The paper was read with much enthusiasm by Mr. Van Deusen and was very enjoyable to the members. Mr. Van Deusen was the first railroad agent in Richmond, 18G2-7. The paper appears elsewhere in this issue. Tn the discussion Mr. Jesse S. pers described at some length by Mr. Reeves were "The Louisiana Purchase and its .consequences" by Prof. Win. M. Sloane of Columbia University "The Civil and Common Law," by Hon. Wm.Wirt Howe;' (Mr. Reeves explained that Louisiana is the only state of the Union whose law is based on the Civil Law i-e the code Napoleon and the Roman law, the basis of the law of the remaining states being the Common Law of England.) , "The Lewis and Clark Journals" by Reuben Gold Throsites, secretary of the AVisconsin Historical Society; and "New Orleans and the Burr Conspiracy" by Dr. McCaleb. The conclusion of the paper was that the chief conspirator was Gen. James Wilkinson, but the author was una ware while reading the paper that the most aristocratic family of New Orleans descended from General Wilkinson. While the paper was being discuss ed the bad condition of the archives at Seville, Spain, a stir was caused by the entry into the room of a group of Spanish naval officers, but as they could not understand English, they retained a gracious manner. One of the interesting exercises was the presentation by the treasurer Reeves said that much of the origi-,of the association, Dr. Herbert Bow nal material referred to by Mr. Van er, of original battle sketches of the Deusen had been embodied in a his- Revofttionary war, made by a Ger man officer on the staff of La Fay ette. These sketches may be seen at the St. Louis Exposition. Mr. Reeves told of the gracious Southern hospi tality which grew more intense as one journeyed southward. Among the social features was a ride on the Mississippi river past General Jackson's battle ground. In 1S04 Gen. Moreau of France while in exile, visited New Orleans and said: "If New Orleans is ever attacked, here will be the place for its de fense." Gen. Jackson had probably never known of Gen Moreau 's re mark. The New Orleans meeting Mr. Reeves said was largely attended and in every way interesting. On the re turn journey the northern members spent a day in Chattanooga, Prof. Hart of Harvard describing the bat tle of Lookout Mountain. v The Wayne county society has a membership in the National organiza tion, so the hitter's meetings , have a special interest for the Wayne county society's members. The last number of the afternoon's program was a report by Mrs. Helen V Austin of her visit in. October to the Henry County Society's meeting at New Castle, where the women of the society gave an exhibition of pio neer industries. The paper was of the deepest interest. This paper wras discussed by Dr. Jay, Prof. Hodgin and Caleb King. By those present the February meeting was felt to be of such inter est that a special vote of thanks was extended to all taking part in the program. Prof. Hodgin announced that the second number of the Society's pub lications "The Germans of Rich mond" by Mr. Fred Bart el was now ready for distribution. This is a paper of the highest value, being Mr. Bartel 's graduation thesis from Earlham. It is given free to all members, or may be purchased for twenty five cents. The name of Mrs. Benjamin Stan- was added to the membership. The society then adjourned to meet at Cambridge City on the 3rd Saturday of Mav. Walter S. Davis, Secretary. Deafness Cannot be Cured Ly local application as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deaf ness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lin ing of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rum bling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed, Deafness is the result, and unless the inflamma tion can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hear ing will be destroyed forever. Nine eases out of ten are caused by Ca tarrh, which is nothing but an in flamed condition of the mucous ser vices. t We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure.
