Mr. Frank Norton, of South Charleston, for some time has been a member of the prohibition county committee from Mi son township. Until last winter berwas not a gentleman of the highest morality and most strict- temperance habits, but still he was chosen by the great moral re form party as their representative in that corner of thecountv. During the religious revival in South Charleston last winter he experienced a change of heart and joined the Methodist church. Since that time he has been en deavoring to harmonize the practices of of religion, but has been compelled to give it up. lie says they will not mix, and he has addressed a let ter to Chairman Wilbur Colvin, esq., re signing his position on the committee for the reason, it Is stated, that he finds it Im possible to be actively engaged in the work of that party and at the same time main tain an upright, conscientious membership in the church. TbU Idea Is In keeping with the practice ot the prohibition reporter who interviewed Tim Liddy, yesterday afternoon, and at tempted to persuade him that he onght not tn vote the republican ticket because it would hurt his business. WAS IT KLEPTOMANIA? Mrs.E. a. Dlltz Trapped and Arrested for Stealing. Mr. E. G. Dilts, formerly with Epps, the music dealer of TJrbana, has been working for the Tiffin Music company, of Tiffin.

Xorrls, the detective. Dispatches were sent to Mr. Diltz to come to Urbana on important business. On his arrival at the C. S. & C. depot Tues day night they were confronted by Mr. Norris, who searched their trunks and found a large stock of underwear, dresses and small articles in Mrs. Diltz's trunk belonging to Mrs. Patterson. Mrs. Diltz confessed and pleaded for mercy, and the case was settled by Mrs. Diltz surren dering the goods and paying John T. Nor ris for the expenses of their detection. The larceny has been going on for several months. Mr. Diltz claims that his wife has been very much out of health during the whole time they were in ninn, and ac counts for the trouble In that way.

H Attempts to show Tim Liddj That the Platform or the Republican Party Is Against His Business. Third party prohibitionists, at least some of them, are peculiar people, and are much more Industrious in their endeavors to de feat tho republican party than they are to accomplish any good. The supplementary resolution, offered by Senator Boutelle, and adopted by the Chicago convention, making it a part of the republican platform, Is giv ing them considerable concern and at the same time they think they see in It a weapon with which they think they may be able to damage republican success. The resolution referred to was offered Just before the adjournment ot the conven tion and Is as follows: 'The first concern ot ail good govern ment is the virtue and sobriety of the peo ple and the purity of the home. The republican party cordlaUysynipatbizes with all wise and well-directed efforts for the promotion of temperance and morality." It seems that the energies of some of the third party fellows are now to be devoted to an effort to show the very few republican saloon men that it is against the Interests of their business to support a party adopt ing such a resolution as part of its plat form. Yesterday afternoon a reporter for the Kao Era, who Is also connected with one of the afternoon dailies, called noon Mr. 11m Liddy, that pillar of republicanism iu tne seven tn ward, ror the purpose of inter viewing htm on that part of the platform. It is possible that the reporter got more In formation than he wanted. He found Tim in full sympathy with the platform In all Its parts and In full accord with any move ment looking toward the better regulation of the liquor traffic The reporter was glvon to understand that It was principle and not prejudice which. Induced Tim to espouse and adhere to republican doctrines. The reporter might get a pointer from that statement A little more principle In his own course, and less attempt to defeat re publicanism by methods not in .harmony with bis professions for great moral reform, would seem to bo more consistent. ' It L hardly thought that the Interview was satisfactory to the A'eio Era people. and it will probably never appear in that paper. The fact, however, that those people are endeavoring to show to the saloon men that tho principles cdvocated In the Tepub-J llcan national platform, are agalnst.tbcir. business interests, while pretending to favor prohibition, places them In a very ridiculous light. The inference is that they, care nothing for reform but are anxious to defeat republicanism. THE Y. M. C. A. The Reception Announced, to Take Place at Us Residence of Mr. O. H.

Death or Another Pioneer A Short Sketch ot a Useful Lire. .Mr. Abraham Kitchen, another of Clark county's aged and highly respected citizens, died at his home in Greene township yester day at 1:30 o'clock. - Abraham Kitchen was the eon of Stephen and Annie Kitchen, and was born in War ren county, November 19, 180S. In 1818 he came with his father to Clark county; in 1829 he moved upon tho farm where he continued to reside up to the day of his death. In November of the same year he was united In marriage to Miss Matilda Jones, daughter of Erasmus 'Jones, of Greene county, Ohio. Mr. Kitchen's Identification with all works ot Christian benevolence and political reform are -well-known In the community. Religiously, he was an earnest and devoted memoer of the Free Baptist charch,baving connected him self with that body in 1838. Politically, he was a republican of uncompromising In tegrity, having passed through the whig, freesoil and abolitionist schools.

This day an Immense mass of citizens assembled at the capital to witness tne inauguration of William Henry Harrison, president-elect of these United States. The number in attendance was not less than those at the great gather- ling at Dayton, O., on the tenth of Scotem- ber last, and that. It will be remembered. was the largest concourse of freemen ever assembled on a purely civic occasion." i. This Dayton meeting referred to Is re membered by all of the older people of bpringneid, many or them being In attend ance. That meeting was the occasion of .the great procession from this county, in wnicnir. liemamin liouoway drove his team of six white horses, referred to in the ItEPUDLicof last Tuesday. Mr. N. 11.

It is a good cry lor the present campaign. Mr. J. E. Griffin is enthusiastic for Har rlson and Morton. He was a member of the "Dayton Grays," a military company In existance at that time, and the comoanv acted an escort to General Harrison on the day of the great September 10 demon stration in that city. He is ac tive yet, and will raise a com pany of veterans for campaign work this tail, ibis same company went to Cmcin nati. when the remains of General Harri son were brought from Washington, and acted as an escort to the burying grounds at North Bend, where the remains yet rest "Uncle Billy" Diehi was also a member of the "Dayton Grays," and says he feels as young and active for Harrison and Mor ton as he did forty-eight years ago for the grandfather. It is possible to raise a biir company of these veterans. In Clark coun ty, and It will be done. Many of them" ex press themselves as feeling more interest In this campaign than In any since that log cabin, coon skin, hard elder campaign. tUrav jbort,.an.estimablu old lady living on the comer ot Pleasant and Factory streets, has also brought to the Republic office a badge which her husband wore In 1840.

Mrs. Short says she had two boys In the late war,'one died in prison at AndersonviUe, the other coming through safely, and, as she puts it, "I am, of course, an enthusi astic republican." She also says, "I am an old woman, and 1 never felt as though I wanted to vote before, but I would like to vote for Harrison and Morton." Victory is in the air, this time, and Is cer tain to come. MRS. HARRISON. A Sketch ot the Next Lady ot the "White House. No woman has figured in Washington society better able to fill the position of mistress ot the White house than Mrs. Ben jamin Harrison. Weil born, well bred and well educated, she has the easy charm of a woman ot the world, yet without one tinge or cynicism or hardness. Given the danger ous gift of wit, she has never used it to sting or wound, one great reason for her personal success. There Is no one socletv respects more than a clever woman who can hold her tongue under temptation. ior her bon mots and her claret punch. made after the "Tippecanoe" recipe, the wife of the republican nominee Is famous, and, bo It said, she serves both with discre tion. Mrs. Harrison .is a little woman, plump, fresh and wonderfully young for one that assumed the responsibilities of life in her teens. As a girl she must have been exceedingly pretty. Tho regular features, bright dark eyes and abundant dark hair of the matron tell that. The lady from Indiana has one of the greatest charms ot her sex, a beautiful lit tle hand, every finger of which is straight and shapely, tapering at the ends with a rosy nail. It is also very white, and cared for as a lady's band should be, not by a manicure, but its owner. No such hand has been shaken in the White house tor at least this generation. In talk ing Mrs. Harrison uses her hands to em phasize her meaning, and does it gracefully. Her eyes, too, are very expressive, and have in their depths a certain roguishness that is captivating. During tho last few administrations, the capital, and tnrougn .t society at large, has felt the need of a typical American woman at the head ot the executive mansion a woman whoso antecedents, whose life ard whose personality would give a wholesome tone to society: one who had the capacity and the courage to lead, and would be ac ceptable as a leader. This place the daugh ter of the learned Professor Scott of Ox ford, and the wife of General Harrison, can fill. She has the experience, the good feeling, the good breeding and tho charac ter which it demands. ;New York Press. The iMMt ot the Gamblers.

A well-known fisherman of this city nar rated to a reporter an exciting experience that he had up the Miami, where this week he had expected to enjoy a day's sport He turned Into a strip of light .timber, and bitched his horse under a tree, as he had often done before, then was proceeding to the water with a net and bucket to catch minnows. Just then the owner of the land came trotting on horseback to where he was, and as the two knew each other, they exchanged friendly salutations. The tanner then In formed the angler that he and his neighbors were trying to stop tresspassing and had concluded to stop people crossing their tanas or nsning along tne river. The angler replied that he guessed he was all right, had fished at that spot often before, and had come out for the day. The farmer was not rough about it, bat firmly asserted his right to protect and control hb own property, and walked away, while the town gentleman began catching bait Soon the angler's attention was attracted by the strange ringing of a farm bell, and as It kept on clanging, his suspicion was aroused, and when he saw farmers hurry ing across the country, some on horseback, others on foot he became convinced that they were rallying from all that neighbor hood in answer to the agreed upon signal of that farm bell. The angler hastily concluded that he bad no time to go to jail, no time to listen to melodious chin music from a hundred In dignant farmers, and no desire to face a country squire, when he, the angler, could do nothing but plead guilty of trespass, so be hitched up quickly and skipped to town. A neighborhood ot farmers on, Todd's fork and the Little Miami, near Morrow- town, have written for information as to how they shall proceed in the organization of a league down there to protect game and fish, and their property, stock and rights against" "scalawag hunt- ters, campers and anglers.1 Farmers in that vicinity have been fined 825 and costs for catching cattish on Christinas day. jn ow these farmers propose to engage In a little protection business themselves. The lettersuggests that "when a Dayton club comes down here with seines andMraw out a lot of fine bass, then skip out for home, all in one night farmers think it time to move in their own behalf." All that section is to be organized at once, like the territory ot Stillwater and the upper aiiami. Dayton Journal. OHIO POSTMASTERS. What lhey Are to be Paid Sext Tear for Tbelr .Services.

Only seven presi dential offices In Ohio have been cut down. and the Aenla office is the only one in. this part of thetate. The people ot Xenia will probably attribute the decrease In their town to the inefficiency ot the service, and not to any falling off In the business, the salary being cut down from $2,300 to 82.- 200. On tbe whole, business in Ohio seems to have had a very healthy Increase during the past year, judging rrom tne postofflce pulse. The report shows that out of some 94 pres idential offices in the state the salaries of 77 have been increased, 7 have been re duced, and about 10 remain the same. The presidential offices only include the first second and third class offices, where the postmasters are appointed by the presi dent and confirmed by the senate. The fourth-class offices includes all the smaller offices, the postmasters being appointed by the postmaster general, and need no con firmation. The Springfield office is the only presi dential office in Clark county, and the sal ary of Postmaster I lagan remains undis turbed at the comfortable sum of 83,100. A NARROW ESCAPE.

A drunk man has less sense than any thing else In the brute creation. Last evening a well-known Market street grocer was crossing Limestone street, lead ing by the band his little boy. It was blowing and raining and he was hastening. Midway on the crossing the grocer met a man leading a little girl, who wore a broad white chip hat en her head. Tbe grocer kindly gave them the entire crossing, not wishing to discommode the little girl. After they were five or ten feet past, tbe wind blew the little girl's hat oft in the mod. Thereupon the man, who was clearly Intoxicated, turned upon the grocer and lanocbed such a fusilade of profane abuse at his head as one seldom hears. Seeing the man's condition and coi!dering the presence of the children the grocer wisely retrained from saying anything in reply, and the drunken fool followed him almost to his home in the west end, muttering threats. The grocer is a wiry little man. If the children hadn't been along it is dol las to doughnuts that he would have swept op the gutter with his drunken abuser. He ought to. Who Faked the Tableelotbs. The lots of four pieces of fine table linen and two sheets from the residence ot Dr. A. M. Potter,, on south Market street. Is still shrowded In mystery. Win. Smith, the husband of the domestic employed at the residence. Is probably innocent. A thorough search of his wife's trunk and his own effects, both at his present and past boarding places, by Officers McAuliffe and Marshall, failed to discover any of the missing arti cles. Smith Is now boarding on, west Mul berry street, bnt rooming on Washington. Nothing was found at either place, but a search developed that Smith was the do mestic's hnsbVud sonitthiig net known before. Smith was diacnarged. Ttie Bohemian Oats Case.

Norrls, who made the arrest, has got It In deep for Klntz, who Is a hotel proprietor at Tiffin, and whom Norrls claims, is one ot the original Bohemian oats gang.
