The high contracting parties were J. C. Wetter and a widow named Mrs. Salisbury. They were united by Elijah Robinson, justice of the peace. Mis Salisbury's maiden name was Wilson, but, haying lost her first husband, con eluded to join fortunes with the eccentric Swiss, for such he was. Mr. Wetter was an industrious man, a great religionist, and strong in doctrinal controversy. When the war broke out be enlisted in the thirty-fourth Iowa infantry, and served with credit ontil its close. He changed his residence to Otter Creek township just previous to the war. He bad always been a strong republican, but when the greenback wave swept over the land, it carried him away. For the time be dropped his religious controversies and became a greenback orator. He was elected to the office of justice of the peace on the greenback ticket, but his apparent anxiety to take possession of his office caused him to perform his first official act a little too soon. His term began on the first Monday in January, but on the first day of January, three days earlier, he took an acknowledgement of a deed as justice. He remedied the matter by doing it over again afterward. He afterward sold his farm in Otter Creek township, and went to Kansas. The first death in tbe township was that of a little daughter of Mrs. Salisbury. The ficst religious services in the township were held by Reverend Thomas Winters, a Baptist minister, in a log school-house in section eleven. Soon after, in the neighborhood, a society of that church was organized bjv Reverend Mr. Whitehead. Among the ¿riginal members were John Woods, Bennett Robinson, Alfred Conner, Mrs. James Bargér, Thomas Wade, and George Courtney and wife. A church was erected, which was called "Goshen." About five years ago the church was moved a short distance, and repaired generally} but very shortly afterward was blown down by a tornado. The society at once proceeded to rebuild, and now have much better building than before. Reverend Mr. Barnett, of Peoria, in Wayne county, h&s been the paster for nearly twenty years. 'A Sabbath school is regularly conducted, with J. H. Scovel as superintendent. In 1850, a society of the Christian church was organized at "Last Chance. The members lived both in Lucas and Clarke counties. Those in this county were mostly of the Hood family, being Martin, A. M., A. J., and William, and their families, and G. Westfall About fifteen years ago, they built „ church at an expense of about six hundred dollars. Their last pastor was Reverend Mr. Porter, but, for about two years, they haye had no pastor. A society of the Methodist Episcopal church was organized In 1873, at Derby. Before this organization, societies of this church had existed, and service were held in- different parts of the township, at school-houses, but this society seemed to practically unite or absorb the others. The same year, 1873, the erection of a church building was begun, and completed, at an expense of about fifteen hundred dollars, and was dedicated in 1874, by .Rev. H. H. Oneal, then of Charlton. This society is only part of what is called Derby circuit, two other appointments being under the charge of the pastor. The Derby society, orv appointment, has abont sixty members. Their pastors, since 1873, have been as follows^ Reverends Messrs. Allen, Martin, W. W. Welch, R. Dally, A. H. Murphy, Simpson Guyer, and R. J. Tennant, the present Incumbent. On the 27th day of April, 1873, a society of the Fresbyterian church was organized, and Incorporated, at Derby, by the following persons: Reverend W. C. Hollyday, pastor;. I. M. Taylor, elder; and A. D. Leech, and Goodman Abell, deacons. The names of the other members of the society are not giyen in the rècord. They proceeded at once to erect a church at an expense of about one thousand dollars. Their pastors have been Reverends Messrs. Hollyday, Edgar, and Allen, but at the present time they haye none. The first resident physician in the township was Dr. Martin, who, located at Last Chance about the close of the war, but many years previously, Doctor Fitch, of Charlton, and Doctor Chaney, of Green Bay, in Clarke county, were the regular practioners. The first school in tbe township was in a log school-house, in section eleven, where tbe Goshen school-house now stands. ' It was taught ^y Jacob Holmes, who is now dead. He had sixteen pupils, and' received one dollar and seventy-five cento for eacfTone. He boarded with Mr. S. B. Chapman, who then lived on the farm now owned by U. Sii Thompson, and-pald .one dollar a week (or bis board." v' Tbe aboye article wsii written almost thlrty yearsago. {Editoritisader.) High Art Clothing!

I am no temperance lecturer in disguise, but a man who knows and tells you what observation bas proved to him; and 1 say to you that you are more likely to fail In your career from acquiring the habit of drinking liquor than from aby or all other temptations likely to assail you. You may yield to almost any other temptation and may reform-may brace up, and, if not recover lost ground, jit least remain In the race, and secure and maintain a re pec table position. But from failure caused by the drink habit recovery Is almost impossible. I have known but few ex-ceptiins to tbe rule.—Andrew Carnegie.
