Otto crawls the sex treasurer of Putnam county died in the Hospital at the Ohio Penitentiary sunday. He had been sent up for embezzlement. Like w. O. Barney of this county crawls was not Able to Cope with the democratic a a gang looters who infested the Putnam county court House and he got into trouble. He was sentenced to the Penitentiary and it is said died of a broken heart. He was in fact like w. 0. Barney the victim of a ruthless a gang a inebriated by thousands of dollars stolen from the tax payers. The news and Democrat have discovered that John Slough has been asked to accept the democratic nomination for representative but they done to know what the a a gang has to do with the offer. Certainly not. They never know what the a a gang is doing. Squire Hockman we Are told was one of the democrats who called upon or. Slough. He told him we Are informed that if he would accept the prize was his a. When the Squire makes an Auto Ortive offer of that kind it is Safe to predict As h. P. Miller used to put it a that there is a Hen furthermore Squire Hockman would not make such an offer if he had not been authorized to do so and if we mistake not the a a gang is still in Possession of the machinery of the democratic convention.

But there is another Point connected with the question noted above. The news and Democrat says a representative of those papers waited upon or. Slough Etc. So he did. Three or four or maybe More times. He wanted or. Slough to write a card stating that the Republican express had a a lied or words to that effect. This representative who is suspected of having a big round Abdomen the fruits of a too free use of water run through malt Rye or Corn not Only asked for but begged that the card be written but or. Slough would not accede to the request. Then this representative went Back to his paper and made or. Slough say that there was not a word of truth in what the Republican express had said in its article on the representative question saturday evening. John Slough is an honest Man and he is a truthful Man and stated emphatically this morning to his friends that he did not say this paper had lied As quoted by the news and Democrat monday evening. That is the Way it goes. These organs that have dedicated themselves to the Mission of defending the a a gang and covering up corruption would not hesitated a moment at such a Small thing As misrepresenting John Slough. They cannot help it because they Are built that Way if it is True that Geo. W. Rutlege a conscience was inebriated by a a gang self when he visited this City in 1893, and thus reported Dei doer fers books Correct without examining them it was a trick worthy of the just think what trouble there would have been if Georgie had delved Down into those books and found that Deiny had not paid his taxes.

River River swiftly gliding to join the lakes etherial Blue pause while i upon thy margin Ming this Idle song to you. Other names Are Sung by poets Sung in lands beyond the sea rut no name to me is dearer than the Indian name. Maumee Here i watched thy sparkling Waters when my race of life began Here i listened to thy murmurs when thy song was one glad refrain. Here i Learned life a variations and thou Sang the different parts. Always varying the music to the Melody of my heart. River while i now am listening i can hear that joyous song that you Sang to me in childhood when my life was one glad song now again i hear thee singing songs of love so soft and Low that in a sure they Are the echoes of the songs Sang Long ago. A thy Low and gentle murmurs Are too plaintive now for gladness. Thy song has changed i hear again that Mournful ode of sadness. Thus thou Sang Aud still Are singing songs in All the different keys. May my heart be taught to gather Only thy Sweet melodies. River thou Art far too generous giving All these songs so free i can Only ask thee humbly take this Idle song from me. Madge d.
