There is an item going the rounds of the press to the effect that the proper method to keep ap ples in winter is to wrap them in old newspapers so as to exclude the air. The newspapers, however, must be those on which the sub scription has been paid, otherwise dampness resulting from what is "dew" may cause the fruit to spoil. The wife and children of Wm. J.

The sight of a mother 60 years old, marching by the side of ber son with her head bowed down with sorrow, as he was leaving for the war at Chicago last Sunday was a very pathetic one indeed.

All of which is a truth which strikes the traveler in these ancient lands. A handsome cane, made in the oldest city in the world now in ex istence, Damascus, was tendered us as a present by the Captain and thankfully accepted. ? Wetzel Dem ocrat. John J. Eckbert, Percy McCon nell, Harry Patton and others left this morning for the Muskingum river where they will spend several days, fishing. A Cure Gnaranteed.

Our readers will remember that a few days since, the Reymann Brewing company, that peddled ale and beer around town, was arrested, or rather its agent was, and fined. The company then agreed to pay * the town three hundred dollars a year, or nothing. Mayor Lawrence refused this offer, and today the campany appealed the case, giving Robert McCormick as security It seems to us the company is unquestionably violating the law and the mayor should make arrests every time the com pany makes a sale. The mayor is right and if the company wants to fight the city officials should see to it that the company is accomo dated. The idea of a United States or any other kind of a license not granted by the town and county allowing any person or company to sell beer is the height of unmitigated nonsense. It's only a bluff and the mayor should not be deterred from continuing making arrests. Such nouseuse should be squelched instanter. Buck ten ? Arnica Anlvc.
