Feeling sufficiently recuperated, nf tor n rest of nearly throe months, 1 this week resume editorial work on Tub County Patkiv. W. W. Davkni-okt. The Court House Repairs. As lieretoforo Ptatcnl tn this paper, tho County Court nt its recant term mailo a contrnot with Moses Dennett to make repairs nnd improvements on the Court Honvs building amounting to $8,500. As tho sum Is a pretty largw one, our render will doubtless bo glad to learn what these repairs, cte., nro to consist of 5 and, in order to furnish them Inlor mation on the subject, wo liavo exam incd tho plans, prepared by John lr elue of St. Joseph and adopted by the Court, from which wo glean tho follow ing particulars. Tho building is to have n general overhauling, and its shape when coin, pletcd will somewhat rcsemblo u Greek cross. On the north centre of the old building nn addition, thirteen feet Mpiaro on the inside, will be built, which will contain a double stairway (one on each side tho front door) lead ing to the second ttory. Tho pic.ent .stairway on tho west side of tho build ing will bo torn away, nml the kpaeo It occupies will bo added lo the room now occupied by tho Collector, making that room tho amo size as tho County Clerk's office. A two-story addition will also bo built on tho west side of the bidding, twclvo by eighteen feet inside, tho first story of which will bo a lire proof vault for books and papers, into which doors lead from the two offices on that side of tho building. Tho sec ond story of tills addition will be used clthcras the Shcrtff's office or Grand Jury room, and will have an outside stairway leading to tho ground on tho west side. This room will also con nect by a door with tho main Court Doom. On tho south Bide of tho bulMing an aleovo, seven by thirteen feet inside, and two stories high, will bo added, . doors In which will afford egress Iroin tho building on tho first lloor, anil tho second story f which will contain tho Circuit Judgo's platform mid desk. Tho Circuit Court Doom on tint sec ond lloor will bo a splendid room, for- ty-ono feet square inside, bce-id tho til . covo containing tho Judge's desk, book case, etc. Desks will aKo be furnish cu ior mo uircuii L'lorK ami hiicrlff, ns well as tables, chairs, etc., for attor neys, and all other conveniences for the rapid and satisfactory transaction of business. Outside the bar cnmfortablu benches of modern design will till the main audienco chamber, affording seat ing accommodations for several hund red persons. Tho height of tho ceil ing in this room will be increased to about sixteen feet, for tho double purpose of adding to its appearance and improving its acoustics. When com pleted this room will bu a very hand- somo and imposing one. A mansard-roofed third story will bo added which will cover thu square portion of tho main building (about tho sizo of tho Ctreuit Court Doom) and will bu divided into rooms for offices, juries, cte. This will relievo the squat ty nppcaraneo of tho old builldlng nnd causo tho remodeled Court Houso to present an appearance which will not bo a discredit to tho county. On top of this mansard roof will bo a tower sixteen feet high, which will con tain a clock with a faco to each of the ,w .!.... ..: .1.- i ... iuiu jiMiiun ii iiiu uiinqiass iinu Willi a striking arrangement which can bo Uo heard to tlio remotest limits of tho city.

There is an irrepressible conflict bo tween right and wrong and every man nnd woman must take sides on tho is sues that ohtermto that eonllict. Christ says " Ho Hint is not with me, is against mo." This is tho rule In every moral question. The licensing of the ale of into.lcntlng liquors, is cither right or wiong. 1 1 right all ought to favor it, utid not only so. but men, women and children ought to pation izo the saloon. Dut if It is wrong, then it is a sin to favor It, for it can never bu right to endorso wrong. To all good meaning men, tills reasoning is conclu sive on this question. Now between this and July thu tax payers of our county will havo the opportunity to put themselves on record on the license question, u ml wo luk each ono to do so very deiiuornteiy. i;o not uiiow yourself to be drawn into endorsing wrong, by any pcrsonvl consideration. Thu temperance men are in earnest and they intend to see that every man's po sition on this subjet t Is made public,and further, that political aspirants who betray the temperance Interest in this impending eiisls, shall have tho full benefit of their, record in coming cam paigns. Tho liquor Interests combines and why should not the temperance in to lest combine? Consistency and self respect require It. If you would not bo buried, stand from under.

During the season just closcil moro than six billion (0,279, 950,000) feet of lumber havo been fulled In Michigan, Wisconsin nnd Minnesota, It is est i mated that tlio logging this summer will swell tho amount to soven and half billions (7,129,950.000). As tho census report shows that the whole quantity of pino lumber standing In these States is but 81,500,000 feet, it is ovident that If thu present ratu of des tructlon Is kept up the supply will only last a few years.
