It is an established fact in the minds of every one familiar with the circumstances that the democrats will carry it at the next election by a sweeping the above article Speaks for itself and in its speaking it brands the author As an unmitigated perverted of the truth. Any one at All familiar with the political situation in Athens county knows that the democrats Are As Likely to it carry the comity As they Are to carry Pennsylvania by five Hundred thousand plurality. In 1895 Athens count y gave governor Bushnell a plurality of in tin county election in Hui the smallest plurality re i revived by any Republican candidate was 2.242, and the largest plurality , t he dispatch is a fair Sample of tin end a niger s political articles and it plainly shows How much reliability May lie placed j Iii that paper s statement.

During the Campaign the situation in Athens county. In the first place most of the dispatches were written to a beardless Democrat cast a vote in his life and cannot vote for at least two yearn yet. And furthermore the dispatch which we reprint from mondays enquirer was not even written by a democratic minor hut was written by a Republican in Athens a Republican who would t vote for free Silver tinder any consideration hut a Republican who receives space rates for his political Bugaboo. Yet notwithstanding this the Pygman disciples of the in Einnatz enquirer in this congressional District quote the Athens dispatches As correctly reflecting the political sentiment in Athens county. Battling with a Snake. Jessie Hendrick aged seventeen had an experience thursday afternoon that she will not want repeated soon. She lives on a farm near Buchtel and was sent by her Mother on an errand to a neighbor s House near by. She had to pass through a Field somewhat Rocky and rough and when nearing her destination she saw a monster Black Sun ice lying directly in front of Lier. Being naturally intrepid she licked up a Stone and threw it at the reptile hut she missed her Mark. The soak a became enraged and springing upon her coiled itself closely around her body. For a minute or two the girl was terror stricken and the powerful Snake continued to tighten its coils around her. She. However did not Lese her presence of mind. But picking tip a Sharp cornered Stone she caught the Snake in her left hand and sin proceeded to crush its head. After striking it until she a nearly exhausted the reptile Cia so began to weaken. A to i when it finally dropped from her she was completely overcome. In crushing the Snake the blood spurted from it. Covering i. A face and body. Tile reptile was afterwards measured and its length was found to in do feet and seven inches and weighed Twenty one pounds. Since her encounter with the Snake tint girl has been completely prostrated and at time. Has been delirious. Prof. Clyde Brown captivates his audience at Eaton in a lecture on Abraham Lincoln. Prof Civile Brown of the University is rapidly gaining the reputation As an inst inn inst met or and Public lecturer that his ability and Merit deserves. Although in the Field but two years be has had engagements in several of the Best counties of the state and the demands for engagement a next j ear Are greater than the time at Iii s. Disposal lie recently lectured a week before the Preble county teachers Institute and his closing address was on Abraham Lincoln. The Eaton Register Speaks of tile lecture As follows it is an old saying that Quot the Hest comes and prof Brown s talk on Quot Lincoln proved the richest treat of the week. This Young Man. A member of the faculty of Ohio University has spoken to the teachers two or three times each Day of the in statute and the keen sense of appreciation with which his work has been received is an evidence of its Merit and his ability As a scholar and instructor.
