Hood & Co., apothecaries, Lowell, Mass 267 Alden'S Manifold Cyclopedia. The liisue ol the tenth volume calls atten-tisn to the rapid progress which this excellent popular cyclopedia is making. The publisher promised the volumes at intervals of about a month; he is recently more than keeping his word. The volume extends from Cosmography to Debry, contains about 640 pages and about 100 illustrations, handsomely printed and neatly bound in cloth, all lor 50 cents! The Manifold is more comprehensive than any other cyclopedia except Cassell's (which costs several times as much), including an unabridged dictionary of the English language in addition to ordinary cyclopedia matter, and though many of the articles arc nec-ccssarily brief, they are suflicienfly full for practical people, and some articles are surprisingly extended—for instance. Cotton occupies 20 pages; Crannogs, 8 iiages; Creeds ajd Confessions, 5 pages; Cricket, 4 pages; Crusade?, (i pages; Darwin and Darwinian Theory, 17 pages, and so ^n. It wo «Id be strange indeed it a cyclopedia of such great merit, published at a cost so surprisingly low, did not reach an enormous circulation. A specimen volume may be ordered and returned if not wanted. John B. Alden, Publisher, New York, Chicago, Atlanta and San Francisco. A Word About California.

And may God in his inifinite mercy guide and guard and teach how to come in out the rain the person—not the one who, for the purposes of debate, takes, the side that it does, for both sides should be presented—but the person who, aft-er an evening's discussion of the subject, really thinks that the tariff on wheat protects the farmer. THE POPUUR VOTE. Nearly a Million Increase--Cleveland's Plurality About one Hundred Thous-sand. In presenting an ofl&cial table of the popular vote for president, the Tribune of New York (republican) says : In the following table official returns are given for most of the states. Reports from Colorado state th;^ the total vote can not be given until the state canvassing board meets. Harrison's plurality in that state, however, is estimated at 12,648. In the following table Cleveland has a plurality of 110,904, not counting Colorado; if the estimated plurality for Harrison is allowed, Cleveland's plurality is reduced to 98,261.

The tariil" (lueistioti and the trusts oirer and unlimited field. Tiioy ought to be discussed in ail their from "A to Izzard." The genius of our institutions is local self-government. The school district is the unit. Man. and especially v,-oman, is a talking animal. These school district units ought to be organized and f'Ught to talk They ought to keep po^^ted.

The country is lagging behind the towns. It will get still further behind unless the country people take stejis to meet together and swap ideas. Resides, all this is not work but play. It IS not hard but easy. It is agreeable, not disagreeable. Get the thing well started and yuU will wonder how vou ever did without it. The teachers in each of the country districts ought in most instancfs to lead in this matter. Let no "fin-nic'ky" idea of nmssiug the school honse stand in the way. School hou.-es are for educ.itional purposes. Grown jieople need education as much as youngsters. Set about this at once. Get bracket lamps enough to i;iako the houses light at night. Fix them up so as to be comfortable and pleasant. And then get together some evening, the sooner the better, organize and start into business. Our word for it, you will never regret it.

The News, in its last issue, went out of the way to attack the Linton fair association in claiming that it was run in a political groove; and especi.Mlly .^o in naming Joe Moss, a director, and P. Schultz, the secretary, tiip latter of whom is the best all-round fair manager in the state. The mere fact tiiiit the management of the fair is in the hands ot democrats, does not necessarily mean that it i.i run in the interest of that Circuit Court Callings. Court was held Tuesday night. Next week will close circuit court until the February term. The will of Nancy Nash was admit* ted to probate on Tuesday. S. C. Cravens was given judgment against Isaac Snyder for 1213.79. Oliver F.

Van Buskirk has been appointed receiver for the old Bloom-field band and filed his bond for $3,000 with E, E. Eveleigh, L. H. Stalcup and S. Stalcup as sureties. The Michigan Mutual Life Insurance company were given judgement against William A. Bonbam, Edward E. Chambers, John C. Boaham, and Charles Chambers (or $313.67. The celebrated slander case of Samuel L. Wallace vs. Inman H. Fowler will most probably be brought to a trial here next term of court. It will take about two weeks to trj it. The case of Joseph Bradford vs. Daniel N. McKee, Robert L, McKee and Richard Mull, for the appointment of a receiver, has been sent to Knox county tor trial on change of yenue, Peter M. Hoover sued L. B. Sexson for malicious prosecution. The case occupied the attention of the court on Tuesday and nearly all day Wednesday, when the jury brought in a verdict of -$400 in favor of the plaintiff. Jloifett <fe Davis were his attorneys. Sliort & Van Buskirk are having a big run of business this term. So are Moflett & Davis. It is difficult to tell which are leading in the bulk of important cases. Both are remarkably successful. In saying this much of two deserving firms, we wish in no way to detract from several other« who are established and are backed by liberal clientage. Answering The Libeler. To the Editor of the Democrat. wurthixgton, Ind., Dec. 10,'88. The Bloomfield News has let loose a mud battery on the Linton fair asr sociation by trying to make people who' know no better believe it is run in the interest of the democratic party, when he knows every word he charg¿s is a barefaced falsehood—a thirg that everybodv knows who knows that paper and its mugwump editor. Farthermore, I defy tho News to point its finger to one solitary meeting of the association that ever politics were in question. It u-,!.-? run upon business principles and for the good of all concerned, not for the loaves and fishes as the 8x10 News sheet is. If this is all the stock in trade the News has it had better shut up shop, for if the so-called editor of the 8x10 sheet will consult such republic-ins as are officers and stockholders, to-wit: D. L. Osbosn, Thos. party, and in this instance the i'"' A. Uarbin, Abner Duncan, putation is certainly not borne out by | ^ Cornelius, Wm. Watson. B. W. McCIung and J. M. Osborn, they will tell him (the 8x10 editor) he is asserting chargcs that are a lie on the face of them. That 8x10 sheet got so familiar with misrepresentations during the campaign it can't check up. This kind of stuff is all the stock it has in trade. If you want to advertise for the benefit of the Bloomfield fair, why not come out square on the issue and say you want the Linton fair to disband and come to the relief of your fair? Don't commence your abuse by a falsehood. You have driven it farther from you. Now see if in one issue of your 8x10 sheet j-ou can tell the truth. A Stockholder. the facts. The fiinton fair has been successfully managed for seventeen years; its premiums paid in full and awarded without regard to political bias, and the people on the west side of While river, who are not blinded by prejudice, will resent this attempt to drag down the Linton fair company to vent a fancied wrong. ¡[Oemocrats'Leaving it.
