Mr Esau Rexrode who has been
Complaining for several weeks died
suddenly Tuesday night at his
home on Frank's Run. He was a

old and leaves four children and a

'.'?Together let us sweetly live
Together let us di?."
The protracted services Mt.
Zion church is still in pi gress
while more than fifty persons have
found pardon for their sn is and
many have professed sanctification.
We hopi the good svork will go on
until e?ery sinner; old and young,
big and little, find sweet peace in a
glorified Saviour.
Owing to peculiar circumstances
and a lack of time we were unable
to prepare in time for publication,
last wefek, the carefully prepared
slate which we promised our friends
but we haye every assurance both
written and oral that our county
debt will be refunded at the earliest
possible date and the useless ex?
penditure of paying premiums on
scalps discontinued and many oth?
er county schools and road will re?
ceive the most careful considera?
tion in the near future. Of course
our official friends know their ac?
tions are public property and we
haye a right to know what they do
and where they stand, but a4,l)uch
man like me" don't know much
about the ways that are dark and
the tricks that are cunning in poli?
tics and therefore is excusable tor
getting bis friends into a close
place once in a while.
We are not going to denounce
them as hypocritical blatherskites
or something worse without giving
them another chance and ample
time to look niter the interest of
the whole people and if they
follow the example set at the poor
farm we will and can say, well
done good and faithful servants of
the people etc. Come up higher.
