At last year's reunion of the old soldiers and sailors of Coshocton coun- ty. August 7th was fixed as the date and the fair ground the place for holding the annual reunion this year. But for good and sufficient reasons it has been decided to postpone the re- union for one month. A meeting of the committee having the arrangements in charge was held at the office of Capt. John M. Comp- ton. Saturday afternoon, at which it was agreed to hold the reunion in the court house park, instead of at the fair ground, at a date ia the early part of September, to be announced later. The change is made in order that the reunion may be held in connection with the dedication of the four can- non which are to be placed in the court house park. The field pieces have not yet arrived, but arrange- ments have been made for mounting them as soon as they get here, and it is expected that everything will be in readiness for the reunion at the post- poned date.

Cornelius Lynch, a Perry township farmer and stockman- was in Coshoc- ton Tuesday for first time in several months. Some weeks ago he submit- ted to a severe surgical operation, from which he is steadily recuperat- ing, and will soon be well and in more comfortable condition physically than for many years. He gives Dr. Frew full credit for the surgical skill that saved his life and restored him to health and bodily comfort. Mr. Lynch is a great lover of the merino breed of sheep, and is credit- ed with having perhaps the best flock of "black tops" in Perry township- some say best in the county. He knows how to breed and feed, and fine wooled sheep have been very profit- able to him during last score of years. His brother. Absalom Lynch, also has sheep flocks of equal merit on adjoin- ing farm. Pity, it seems, that such intelligent and systematic farmers and fine stock growers as the Lynch brothers must steadily grow old. and be hindered in plans for the improve- ment of live stock along best lines by the accumulation of years. Such men are not alone of worth to their fami- lies, but of great benefit to the com- munities in which they live. Wednesday. Interment Canal Lewisville.

Plenty of Money on Deposit. In advertising columns of this paper s printed a condensed statement from report of the Coshocton National Bank made to the government July 16. showing its resources and liabili- ties. It shows that the bank's depos- its increased about since state- ment made last day of April, and now making a total of resources of over a half million of dollars. This splendid showing indicates not only a good managemenfof the concern, but the confidence the people have in the men who are administering its affairs- A deposit account of over 8400.000 for a bank in business here only four years is also an index of the steadily increasing prosperity of the people. Resources have been augmented, pro- fits have been better, and with each year there is coming- a better business condition of things for the merchant, the tradesman and the farmer, giving many of them bank accounts and bal- ances at the end of the year, that is a new and refreshing experience in con- trast with the slack business, low val- ues and droughty seasons of former vears. Good Corn Weather. Corn, which until a week or ten days ago was of doubtful success, is now growing rapidly under the influ- ence of the hot weather and frequent rains. The rains and warm weather helped to cause the earth to put forth its energies in cereal productions, and corn has been greatly helped along. Some farmers say the hill fields in many places promise as satis- factory corn yield as the valley lands, which in ordinary years are much the best. le. But one family will use of same box. Those using other boxes heretofore obtained and proper- ly placed, if not in accordance with new box rules, will not now be requir- ed to buy new boxes. "Farmer" Poole a Winner.

One of the crops ever grown in Coshocton county is now be- ing harvested. The crop was sown late last spring, but recent rains have developed a fine, full yield.

English sparrows have one human characteristic- They generally roost in large numbers in some large shade- tree. -Ys soon as they congregate a fight begins for the best seats and the scrap continues until late in the night- It resembles a rush of people for the best seats at a circus or opera house. Same characteristics are shown by the blackbirds that roost in countless numbers in the trees in court nonse park.

The season of picnics. those occa- sions of joyous mirth and innocent pleasure when attended to and man- aged with the proper spirit, i- at its height now, and very many people, especially the folks, are availing themselves of the opportun- ity of enjoying it to the fullest extent. We are glad to see this commingling of all classes and conditions in picnic pleasures. It has the effect of doing away with the petty strifes and ani- mosities which are so rife in every community, and establishing in place therebfLa-f eeling of mutual kindness one another. We rate picnics and festivals as great hannonizers. and very enjoyable oc- casions for those who participate with the right spirit.

We think we were right in assum- ing that William J-JSahzner. editor of the Bulletin, called a halt on the gf ain gamblers on the Chicago Board of Trade, and dropped the price of j corn from W to cents per bushel. He es us a column of in- formation on this grain gambling bus- iness in "s Bulletin, but is too modest to -aj- that he is the origi- nal W. J. B. who used the club to knock the com gamblers silly, and settled the price 1-3 cents per bushel. Tbe thin? that is most surprising is the fact that Mr. Bahmer did not dis- cover the nefarious performances go- ing on in Chicago until the DEMOCSAT AXD STANDARD called his attention thereto. He is usually so "pert and quick" to see and act. This is cer- tainly the first time on record that he has failed to discover a situation call- ing for prompt and strenuous action long before anybody else could think of it. But didn't ha bring those des- perate Chicago gamesters up on a short turn, when he went after them? Such a man is worth millions to country like this.
