We look over the year; its history is
written in wrecks and failures, perhaps,
and yet, in God's accounting, human
estimates make for little. When we
ave done all we possibly can, of unsel
fishness, of charitableness, of magna
nimity, we must at best seem to ourselves
to be altogether unprofitable.. -But our
usefulness in the world is not measured
by the magnitude of our achievements.
Many of us have met all We billows of
adverse fortunes, and are still almost
hopelessly struggling for life amid the
pitiless waves. We look about us and
we see sin in higli places, we see hypo
crisy exalted; we see virtue and chas
tity at a discount; we fret at our own
misdeeds, at Our inability to rise above
the degrading tendencies of inheritance
and of environment.
The old "Union Hotel" property sold
on Saturday last for $4,050, the price
being over the appraisement. - M. Mc
Laughlin was $he purchaser. The bid
ding between Ttwo of our best heeled
citizens for the property on Main street
at nearly $100.00 per foot, shows the
confidence our ru3ied men have in well
located property in Eaton. . There has
been a gradual and steady upward ten
dency in the value of property in our
town for the past twenty-five years,
particularly on Main and Barron streets.
We have heard that common nuisance,
tbfe "grumbler," say years ago that the
prices paid for Eaton property was too
high, but to-day the same property can't
be cashed at 50 to 100 per cent, advance
over original cost. This is especially
true in the purchase of business prop
erty, and it will continue as the de
mands for business rooms will increase
with trade and business. We must not
sit down and fold our hands and give
ear to the old chronic grumblers, but go

It is said that dull times are not known by
the agents for the great publishing house of
George Stinson A Co., of Portland, Maine.
The reason of this exceptional success is found
in the fact that they always give the public
that which is keenly appreciated and at prices
that all can afford. At present we under
stand, their agents are doing wonderfully
well on several new lines. They need many
more agents in all parts of the country. Those
who need profitable work should apply at
once. Women do as well as men. Experi
ence is not necessary, for Messrs. Stinson t
Co. undertake to show all who are willing to
work, not hard but earnestly, the path to large
success. It should be remembered that an
agent can do a handsome business without
being away from home over bight. Another
advantage it costs nothing to give the busi
ness a trial, and an agent can devote all his
time, or only his spare moments to it. Stin
son & Co. guarantee grand success to all who
engage and follow simple and plain directions
that they give. We have not space to explain
all bere,.but full particulars will be sent free
to those who address the firm; their full ad

The C., H. D. and Pennsylvania.
That tlie Pennsylvania people are building
from Red Bank, on the Little Miami Division
of the Pittsburg, Cincinnati and St. Louis, to
Hamilton, is well kuoirn, and it is also known
that their purpose in building this piece of
ro&a is to obtain an muopenaent entrance to
this city for their Chicago Line, they having
for a number of vears obtained entrance over
the C, H. and I)., using the Cincinnati, Rich

There has been a great deal of talk to the
eltect that the 1'ennsylvania people would
cither buy or lease the Cincinnati, Richmond
and Chicago from the C, II. and D. people,
and thus, upon the completion of the Red

The Pennsylvania rxjonle made a proposi
tion to the C- H. and 1)., with the view of
making a traffic contract over the Cincinnati,
Kicnmond and Chicago, between Kicnmond
and Hamilton, a distance of fortv-five miles.
The C, II. and D. people were willing to make
the traffic arrangement provided the Pennsyl
vania people would make a similar arrange
ment with them over the Pennsylvania line
between Anderson and Kicnmond, a distance
of forty-nine miles, so that they could have a
throueh line to Cincinnati via the Cincinnati,
Wabash and Michigan and the Cincinnati,
Richmond and Chicago via Anderson, Rich
mond and Hamilton. The Pennsylvania peo
nle refused to enter into an v such recinrocal
arrangement, and, as a consequence, the C,
11. and D. people will parallel the Pennsylva
nia line between Anderson and Richmond,
and the Pennsylvania people will, as stated,
favor the C, H. and D. people with a parallel
line between Hamilton and Richmond. The
C, H. and D. expects to get into Chicago with
the Cincinnati, Wabash and Michigan by a
connection with the Nickel Plate at Argos,
ninety-two miles out of Chicago, or at Boli
var, on the Chicago and Atlantic.
The above appeared in the Enquirer last
month, and at the time was said by the know
ing ones to be without foundation.
An official announcement was made yester
day by the C, H. and D. people that the nego
tiations between the C, H. and D. and Penn
sylvania regarding the Richmond Branch are
off, and that a party will be at once put in the
field to survey and construct a line extending
the Cincinnati, Richmond and Chicago from
Richmond to Jonesboro (seventy miles), via
Muncie to Marion, on the Cincinnati, Wabash
and Michigan Road, controlled by the Stay

Stricken With Blindness.
A Kalamazoo (Mich.) Telegraph Reporter
gives the following statement of Dr. C.rran
coise, the well known veterinary surgeon of
that city, in reference to a case of blindness.
The Doctor says :
"Four vears aeo last spring little Willie,

relative of mine, residing at that time in Mil'
waukee, Wisconsin, was taken with the tneas

nothing could be done for him, and that,

remedy, manufactured at Atlanta, spoken of

for S. S. S. is not guaranteed to cure blind
ness; but bv some happy chance it was deci
ded to test its efficacy in Willie's case. By the ,
time he had taken a bottle and a halt his
eyes had so far recovered that he could play
out of doors. After taking four battles be

fectly sound, and have continued so ever
"Here, Willie, W lllie, come here 1" shouted
the doctor suddenlv. to an active little boy
dressed in knickerbockers, who was playing
in the street. "This is Willie De Witt. His
father used to be a railroad conductor, but he
is out west now on business, and Willie is
staying with us until be gets back. He goes
to the East Avenue school every day, and
never has the least trouble with his eyesight.
