All doing Well. We should remark no Hies on Mark township. All things being ready the Light a s placed under a Bushel and the signal Given for the hippodrome to go on. In hip of spotted horse spangles limbs nod a few other things incident to nil Well regulated circuses the table which is the All important Factor in such meetings distinguished itself by stepping off a few bars of danubian Waltzes and then bowing its Back Liko a Leviathan making ready to dive and bring up Sand from the Bottom of the sea or die jumped High in the air cracked its heels together three times and alighted leg Side Down. The seance then went on. Rap rap rap. The table groaned again and again but took its Medicine like a Little Man. Rap rap rap. A who Are you a some one at last ventured to ask. A it matters not about my name. My Mission Here is to give you warning. In a bang syne i was one of the few delegated to Rustle things in the Back townships and keep the democratic majority no to the High water Mark. I was one of the chosen few who assisted Many years ago in running funds from the Paulding county Treasury into the Defiance county Treasury when our wicked persecutors the republicans had discovered a deficit it was a Slick scieme but it was a mistake. It in i to other deceptions and to retain our Power we made life a lie. Tim has developed Many leaks and the truth is oozing out. The people will learn it ail by and by and then the Finger of scorn will Point out our names to the passing throngs. It has been revealed to me that All the iniquities of the past must come to the surface. Therefore Call a halt and assist in bringing about reforms. The heated term never passes away Here for those who have been instrument la in bringing calamities upon the people. I assisted in harassing the people a great Many years in the name of democracy and i never have any use for my or id wave signal now. Fore warned is fore armed so heed this at this Point there was much discuss on As to the advisability of ending the seance. Home thought there was too much truth in the communications to be very funny while some others who had not been struck by lightning instated that the curtain should go up a in. It was so concluded and the table was trotted out and inspected. One leg was discovered to he badly shaken and As it was desirable to use some thing in bandaging it no that would not be a loss to the Community if destroyed the agreement of Stephen g. Clark of Chicago to build a Bridge across the Maumee River was pressed into service. It was conceded that it looked business like to use such a document even if it did not amount to much. The Light then went under cover end the table executed one of the Moat difficult j i known to the world since the Days of Corinne Mccullegan King of Munster and Bishop of Cashel. The Devil ment in the Documental b indie might have accounted for this hut rap rap r in. A nah there a said the editor. A stay there a echoed the spook. A Are they All there Quot said the Shade. A who do you mean Quot a the a no one got �?one/1 what a pity. That last ditch i was taxed to help pay for and which did not Benefit me a dollars Worth waa a Little More then i could stand. I begged and plead for mercy but it was no us. For fifteen years i had been subjected to such indignities. At the last meeting of the Board i attended i received a solemn Promise that not even a portion of the Harden should be shifted onto me. I went Home Happy. The next Day i Learned that the dose had been doubled. Then i gave up the ghost. I plead to night for the i a lug for the Farmers of Defiance county who Are under the Dominion of the com my a stoners. If the commissioners would have peace Over Here let them show some mercy and consideration for the living. Done to write any More cards gentlemen of the Board. The it Hopkins and Washington Street tear up is Only one of the outrageous jobs that you have done a Vert sing for it and then counter manding the order. Everybody got onto the locket and that put the fire committee in a to e. The proper plan would have been to have advised the firm Selling the Hose to hold it until such time As bids had been advertised and then to reject All but that of Tho firm selected by the fire committee. Done to you see How the chasm Ronld have been bridged Over of a town is to be plundered Harmony la essential. It is in fact a no Chasity. If a member of the fewer committee and the City Engineer had not locked horns the general Publ c would never have known about that jobs was it turned out the noun Ellis Loose Way of doing business is now Public property. Then again i am sur prised about that Preston run badge. It might have teen much better handled. Of course Ivory one of St ads that the City a no business building it but while the Council was about it it should have been More thorough in i s work. The Law says that any improvement Bridges included costing Over to goo must be sold to the lowest bidder and advertised for four consent to weeks. The Preston run Bridge was Only advertised ten Days and in my Day the Law was As strict .Ith count is As the commissioners. It was a great mistake not to advertise four weeks. You sae it gives the widow orphans the poor Labouring Man the merchants and bus Ness men a Chance to cry oat it is the crying on that hurts. It did no to bother me much in the Tish but in this world it is different the cries of the sewing women the poor men trying to pay for Little Home who were ground Down by my reckless waste of Public Money s Marges me now like a whip of fire. It done to pay to engage in such practices. One May think he has done a Good stroke of business in engineering such a Job through it May even make one feel Joyful but it is hades in the life to coms i fat Peak from there was a sound As if a mighty the org was sliding Down the banisters of the Back stairs and when the Able editor Mado the rounds of the table be found that he was alone. Lijek do it it Loafer Foung to be the next democratic nominee for auditor. Don t make the mistake of running up Aua Lentan iceberg by opposing Bim. My advice to von is logo Home and build Snow shed.
