Tlio Weekly V,uli;v. or News from a
Standard lleporter.
For various reasons I liavo written
nothing now for two weeks, but the
best reason was, I lnul nothing to
write of any eonsequeiice, and have
nothing yet, but I would not imitate
humanity in general did I not talk
some when I have nothing newsy or
interesting to report. Newspaper
correspondents and reporters arc. val
uable for one consideration if nothing
else, and that is they cause the news
paper subscribers to read their papers.
Yes, they first look to see what has
been said about themselves, and next
to see what is said of their neighbors.
If they find a favorable "personal
mention" then it is a good newspaper
and a good correspondent, but if on
the contrary nothing at all is said
about their "highnesses," the
"paper is no account and the corres
pondent ought to quit." If you, any
body, are not mentioned, do some
thing and be mentioned ; and if no
one else will praise your good deeds,
write them up yourself. Self-praise
deservedly rendered is far better than
no praise from a lack of merit. The
world is full of people who are will
ing to do something, if something
would "turn-up." "There may be a
Divinity that shapes our ends," but
it is a mighty good idea, if nothing
will turn up for one to apply himself
to that for which he is best fitted by
nature and turn something up. So
nothing is present with me about
which to write, and not claiming at
all to be fitted by nature for a news
paper scribe, nevertheless, I will pro
ceed and write up something.
I could take a shovel and go out on
the doorsteps ami platform and turn
up the beautiful snow, but there's no
money in that, besides it's cold out
there: no, I'M let it stay there and
take the chances of turning up myself
when I go presently after wood or to
sit by somebody else's fire.

Frank Woodlee with a sad heart

Of his nativity, last week, bound for
Missouri. Frank claims that he was

has gone to try a different climate

Success to you, Frank.
Collins' Itiver will send out her
share of candidates to shake the
hands of the dear people in the
near future. I hope some of them
will run on the poverty plea. I am
going to give my vote to an honest
man, if I mistake not, and to one
qualified to discharge the duties of
the office he seeks. If a man has these
pre-requisites and in addition thereto
is a poor man or a cripple, or both,
then these things should have due
consideration. But it is a dangerous
experiment to elect a man simply be
cause he is an object of charity. If
he is one in fact, our County Court
has made provisions for having him
taken care of, and it is worse than
folly to elect an incompetent man to
assume the duties of an important

The Neighborhood News from Our
Regular Correspondent.
To tin; Standard.
There is a snow of about three
inches this morning, and it found
several of our wood piles rather small.
There is some talk of a cheese fac
tory tore. Mr. E. W. Smartt has
been talking to a gentleman in regard
to the matter, and says if the people
here will obligate themselves to fur
nish 100 gallons of milk a day he will
establish the factory here the first of
May. The gentleman said he would
start with 100 gallons a day, but
would prefer 100 or 'M). Mr. Smartt
says lie will obligate himself to fur
nish 110 gallous. It looks like as good
a farming county as this could fur
nish that amount of milk without any
trouble. We hope our farmers will
think the matter over and decide
to make an effort to furnish the nec
essary amount of milk, and establish
a market at home for all their milk.
If our farmers would sow more grass
and raise more cattle (better cattle)
they would not only makelnoney off
their cattle, but would improve their
farms at the same time.
Mr. John Custer and family have

We are having a great deal of cold
and disagreeable weather, and the
ground at this writingis covered with
snow. The roads are getting so it is
almost impossible to travel. Stock of
all kinds is looking very well consid
ering the Miuter.
But little sickness in this section,
some few cases however ; Miss Eliza
FennoJl, of our village, is on the sick
list this week, but we hope she will
soon recover.
Some of our larmers are making
preparations for sowing oats, but the
prospects look somewhat gloomy at
this time. Gardens are also being
prepared for seed time.
Our village is undergoing a consid
erable change, the old houses and
fencing are soon to be torn down and
taken out of the way and new ones to
be erected, which will add much to
the appearance of the place.
Some of our farmers are down with
theSexas fever in this section, it
looks as if some of the Northern land
buyers might come over and help
them out of their trouble. We need
a few energetic farmers in our section
to show us what is lacking.
There is a good deal of wheat sown
here and is looking well considering
the hard freezes. B.
Franklin County News : The pros
pects for a united Democracy are very
bright at present. Everything points
that way. If the disunited elements
could meet on half way grounds, and
do so without sacrificing principle,
the result would be grand. It is ques
tionable whether there ever was
much "principle" involved in the
present division of the Democracy.
The bossess are beginning to see that
the people are too intelligent to be
lashed into measures by the party
whip, and consequently they are will
ing to make concessions. The bosses
have contested all the ground, and
find the rank and file are against
them, and they have a great deal of
hankering after the biggest lump.
Cleveland Banner-News : "We are
informed that in a few days several

90 Day Seed Corn.
Editoh Standard: Dear Sir I
have a quantity of a superior quality
of extra large field corn which has
lately been originated, and which
will mature in 90 days, thus filling a
want long felt. Ears from 12 to 14
inches long, grains unusually large,
cobs slender, 130 bushels of shelled
corn of this variety has been raised
per acre. N
As I am extremely anxious to know
what this corn will do in other cli
mates before advertising it, for sale, I
will send a large sample package to
any farmer who will give it a fair
trial and proper attention and report
his success with it, and who will en
close 10c in silver to pay postage;
packing, etc., therepn. In order to
induce farmers to take unusually
good care of this corn so that I may
have good reports to advertise next
season, I will give $25 in gold a? a
premium to the one who raises the
best ear und sends the best report,
and $10 for 2d best. Address,
P. E. Fross,
New Carlisle, Ohio.
The following is a condensed report
from farmers whom I sent packages
to last season : t-
Received the package of 90 day corn;
planted it May 8th, shucked it August 9th.
WM. ANDERSON, LaPrairie, 111.
The 90 dav corn is all that you claim for
it. .INO. K. MOSBY. Lauderdale, Miss.
90 day corn received. Father, who is an
old corn raiser, says, "I never saw such big
ears, small cob and large graius before."
J. STEELE, Clayville, O.
90 day com received; all came up. The
last of May we had a frost which froze it
even with the ground ; 31 stalks sprouted,
from those 31 stalks received 3 pecks of
good sound corn. It has given satisfaction
. O. L. GOUSAR, Snydertown, Pa.
The package of corn you sent me bag
done well. It was ripe in 90 days.
DR. T. W. JONES, Caraell, 111.
90 day corn received. I am highly pleased
with it, in fact think it the best corn I ever
saw. L. B. GRIMES, Recorder of Harrison
Co., Cadiz, O.
Received the 90 day corn. There was a
hole in the wrapper and all lost but 21
grains. Planted May 12th and August 12th
had 30 ears of the best corn I ever saw. It
is all that you claim for it and more too.
Nothing in reason would induce me to be
without it again.

from its use : and us my wife had been
