There is a young man in Findlay who was appointed clerk in the Treasury at Washington. He was removed and another appointed in his place. He re turned to Ohio, went to Findlay, and to-day he is worth which he made by dealing in gas lands. This is more than he could have made by fifty years' .service in the treasury of the United States at the salary which he was working for. "During a storm which passed over Delta on Sunday, hail fell as large in circumference as a silver dollar and about twice the thickness of that coin. After the storm passed, going eastward a tremendous roaring was heard in the clouds, like the rumbling of :i railroad train going over a bridge or a tornado through a forest. It was evidently currents of wind meeting, a few hun- dreds of feet above the earth. Hud the currents been on the surface of the earth no doubt many buildings of Delta would have been An ordinance has been passed by the village Council, giving the Paulding Gas Oil Company The privilege of laying pipes in the streets and alleys of our town for the purpose of con- veying natural gas (if gas is struck) along the and in consideration for the same the Company agrees lo furnish gas (if a sufficient quantity is obtained) to light lamps for the sum of eight dollars a year each, the village Thinking that perhaps the opinions of several of our leading business men, upon the proposed Memorial Ilnll, its style of construction, location etc., would be interesting reading to our pat rons we subjoin the following expres- sions upon the subject: T. S. McKim: lil haven't thought much about the subject. The project- ors however, ought to so construct the building that people will notice it and realize why it was built." A. Conant: "I think it a grand mis- take to place business rooms in that hall. If they have a legal right to build it in one of the parks, there is where it should go without a dobnt. The peo- ple are willing to contribute liberally to a building of that kind, out they want it to look like a memorial hall when it is completed, and not like a mercantile block." J. S. Brumback: "1 consider the idea of business rooms in the proposed memorial hall, highly erroneous. "We don't want anything of the kind. If the people intend to expend money for a memorial hall they want something which they can get into without climb- ing into the.third and fourth stories. One of the parks is the place for the hall, and if the money that will be paid out for the lots spoken of, is invested properly, with a little more added to it, the income will be entirely sufficient to meet the expenses.

EDITOR Iti casting about for a suitable header, to introduce the ad- ministration reform movements of the week, your correspondent was about to transcribe a selection from Pollock's description of the hypocrite, but upon reflection, il seems too severe on the hypocrite, to associate him with these reformers. Pollock's man was a saint compared with those, though "The rottenness of his heart was easily There arc still a few old clerks left, who are known to have liecn Repub- licans in former years, but who were not "perniciously active in politics" of late years, and against whom no charges can be formulated, that would convince even Mr. Higgins that they were "offensive partisans." There appeared to be no way to get rid of these clerks and give their places to innofcnsivc Democrats and rebels, until the Civil Service Commissioners appeared upon the scene, with a new rule. These functionaries have es- tablished a rule that in order lo make promotions of clerks in the depart- ments from any grade, all the clerks of that grade must appear for exami- nation, and those who fail to make the necessary seventy-five per cent, will be placed on a separate "prohibi- This business boom which has spread so rapidly over Northwestern Ohio is no doubl partly speculative, as values have increased too rapidly for the growth, to be purely normal.
