Mrs. Nancy Reed, one of the oldest women in this part of ih(> country, died at her home near St. Ber-nice last Saturday evening. She had been an invalid and confined to her bed for six years. She was a woman of strong character and an influential church worker. She was the wife of the lato David Reed, who settlod near St. Bernice when it was nothing but a wilderness. The old couple have a very large number of descendants in Helt township, and the funeral was largely attended. Perrysville Blue Pencil Man Comes to Clinton. A dispatch from Perrysville under date of June 4 states that R. S. Osborn has leased the Perrysville "Blue Pencil" to L. W. Morgan and B. L. Graham, who will continue to edit the paper. Osborn will go to Clinton, where he will form a partnership with L. O. Bishop of the Clinton Argus. Osborn is known throughout the western part of Ijtdiana as "the fighting editor." He has been editor of the Blue Pencil for the past three yeai-s, coming from Cayuga to Perrysville, During that time he has had some (brain) stormy times. He took up the temperance cause two years ago and waged war against the liquor trafiic, causing a great deal of ill feeling against him in that township. His sanctum was bombarded with bullets and rocks on two occasions, but that did not cause him to cease fighting. Mr. Osborn claims the distinction of being the originator of the "blind tiger" idea, which became a law at the meeting of the last legislature. A BIG BOOM For Clinton is Now on the Way. The Miami Coal Co., which is one of the^ largest and strongest coal companies in the country, have leased 1000 acres of land three miles southwest of Clinton and are now making large preparations to put down several shafts. This company have been operating several mines in Clay county and are strong and financially reliable, so that there can be no mistake in regard to the stability of this new and welcome enterprise for Clinton. The Plain-dealer is close to the press hour at this writing, so will have to cut this good news short. Had Some Bad Luck The drillers for the Blue Ridge Oil & Gas Co., who are sinking a well on the Matthews farm west of town, met with some bad luck Tuesday when the rope broke and let the drill and some of the rope drop to the bottom of the well. They had quite a time fishing out the paraphernelia. They have went down lo5 feet and through the 2nd vein of coal which is about 4 feet and 8 inches thick. The Plaindeal-er wishes them better luck. COUNCIL MET MONDAY NIGHT Been Raininj^ Some Rain, rain, rain the past week or two. The Wabash has slopped over its lianks and invaded the low lands where the catfish swimmeth and feast on the corn that has been planted.
