S. mail sack at the edge of the Ohio river ai what is known as Kelley’s Ditch, about noon Monday. The pouch h*d a long slit in it showing that it had been cut open with a knife. In the pouch were letters from Colum bus, Cincinnati, Washington and other points (postmarked Friday), which indicates that at least three sacks bad been stolen aud the contents emptied into one. There were several government pension vouchers and a large number of do mestic letters and checks, but no registered letters. The absence ot registered mail leads the authorities to believe that the mail had been robbed of the registers and the saek thrown into the Ohio with the idea that the crime would be cover ed. The mail sack and its contents were turned over to the Ceredo pos tal authorities and later sent to W ashington. It is the general supposition that the mail was stolen from the Kenova depot during transfer. Wayne County School Children Number 9054.

John Smith was in tow n last week and after delivering fifty gallons of IOO95, pure buttermilk to h»a on - loniera, paid tbia office a pleaaani call, paying hi. subscription a rear in advance. To a l which the Par kersburg State Journal will phase take cognizance John speut a few moments in our sanctum eanutoriutn ("we" say **our” because the chief mogul was out of town). During bis talk about Twelve Pole “a rising and log. a-sbooung out,” John told ua of some of his recent travels. Since hia last visit to “our”sanctum, John has been praciically around the globe and came back with all kinds of names booked onto him. John stood on the banks of the ttheims and saw the battle at its height. He baa stfTod on the moun tain from whose lofty heights Moses viewed the Promised Land. Our own John has traversed tho site around which Jo* hut* and hi. artnv marched thirteen times, blew their trumpets and caused the walls of Jericho to take a tumble. He has interviewed the principal rulers and would-be rulers of the world. While across the pond an admirer introduced him to a friend as Johannes Smithus ; and thou up walked King Immanuel of Italy who smoothed it off as (-iiovauni Sum hi King Alfonso of Spain called him Juan Smithus, while Fighting Bill William of Germany dined him as liana Schmidt. John tquetzed the hand of Presi dent Poincaire (of France) no hard that he flattened his name into Jean Smeets, and Czar Nicholas ol Rus sia sneezed and barked Joolof Suit, towski. While supping tea in the tea mart at Canton a prominent merchant recognized him as Jahon Shirntnit. During his perambulations about Ml. Ilecla the Icelanders called him Jabne Smiihou, and after playing checkers with the Tnsoaroras he was known as Ton Qa Smiitia. In passing through Poland a •cared sentinel challenged him as Ivan Kchmittiweiski, and a Welsh hunter sold him a rarebit and (dated out Jihon Schmidd. While taking a synopsis view of ruins, a Grecian sculptor spoke to him as ’loo Smikton. Passing along into Turkey John almost caused a holy war. One of the inmates of a harem stuck her veiled face up to the bars and cried out Yoe S5eel. This set John’s American blood a-biling. He yank ed off bis coat, rolled up his sleeves and dared the pasha and all imps to come out and face him; told the dir ty scamps that he allowed no one to call him a thief. Ambassador Mor ganthau chanced along and told him that the woman meant no disrespect and that translated Yoe Seef was simply John Smith. This tick led John’s palate very much and af ter apologizing to the offended Turks and Turkeys, he concluded to leave and set sail tor home. Like old Robinson Crusoe, John became shipwrecked, but finally landed in Mexico. A Greaser sol dier, who seemed to have the hay fever, challenged John and appellal ed him Joniil F’JMitti. This seem ed to have been the straw that broke the camel’s hack, for John hot foot ed it across the Rio Grande and took a train for home. Everything was going nicely now and the conductor had reached for the signal cord to stop the train at the Ceredo sta ion when— some one of authority shook John and asked what on earth ailed bins. Hia sup position was that be had eaten too much cold beef and cabbage for sup per. For Sale. Corner lot ou Poplar aud 13th streets, Kenova, known as poplac* tory lot. Has a deep dry well.
