If this is inflation it is on a Gold basis and the people rest easy As to its substantial value. There is a Prospect of wiping out sunday excursion trains. That would be a Good thing for Defiance and hundreds of other towns in Ohio. The sunday excursions have become a curse to the smaller towns and cities of the state of week end tickets Black River both Small Theroun i try was More Fiat and not so much Cut up. All along the route we found Cotton farms everybody Busy As they can be planting. A few Fields of Cotton along the Road were Green. The Cotton was growing nicely and the Farmers were cultivating it. When our car pulled into the Little Inland town of a a Hoxie we landed and the first Man we saw that we knew was pres Zeigler by whose hand we were welcomed into the town and Home. This Little Village is located near the crossing of Iron Mountain Railroad and the Frisco line is also the Junction of the pocahantas Railroad at Shis place and also at Walnut Ridge there is quite a revival in the commercial and business life owing to new enterprises coming into their midst. We found or. Zeigler in the Timber with a lot of workmen cutting some of the finest Timber both Oak and Hickory that we Ever saw and he seemed to be in his glory for press is All right when he can get into a Good Forest. Later on. About half Way Between Hoxie and Walnut Ridge we met our old and genial Friend o. A. Fri a. His pleasant countenance and warm grip of the Haud was sufficient to make us feel at Home at once. At this place or. Frick As manager for the Turnbull Wagon co., is erecting a Large and Complete factory for the company where they expect to work up Large lot of Timber which they have purchased at this place. Or. Prick piloted us through the building which is nearing completion and we found it a very Complete Structure solid and rigid and when a building is so completely constructed All the machinery that May be put in it will not move it or cause it to vibrate. A great Many machines Are being placed and or. Frick thinks he will be Able to operate it by the latter part of this week. We bespeak for the Turnbull Wagon co the Success known it will have for the Wagon co. Always has in its employ an Able corps of employees. On saturday night Midnight we sent gee. W. Watkins and c. J.

Weisen Burger amp co., jewellers amp opticians 313 Clinton Street while we were loth to have them go i cannot say that our pleasures and comforts were diminished by their absence for our old friends Zigler and Frick by hospitality and Friendly treatment simply took Possession of us and time seemed Only to strengthen it. The Homes of our friends were thrown open to us and our enjoyment was made Complete. I would not forget to mention that while or. Ziegfer is an excellent entertainer there was probably a Little loneliness when we left his Home As he was Batching As we Call it because of the absence of his estimable wife who had left him for a Short visit in Defiance. We had been tramping Over the country considerable and expected to leave Hoxie for Home on saturday night but circumstances were such that we were obliged to stay Over. On saturday evening . Frick kindly invited me to attend the pastor is an Earnest and. Enthusiastic worker and preached an excellent Sermon his theme being a bridle the in his discourse he made the necessity of bridging this unruly number for with it we can Laud Praise elevate and bring into High esteem and higher attitude All that is Good and Noble and with it it is possible to condemn degrade debase and destroy. Cd we were very much pleased with the Sermon and the attitude. As there is now a revival in the business and commercial world at this place there is also a revivals in the Church. During the afternoon we met quite a number of or. Fricks and or. Zigler a new acquaintances and were much pleased to find so Good people. They were Friendly and courteous. I was indeed pleased that our townsmen were located in a locality where their were so Many pleasant people. Our entire time at Hoxie and at Walnut Ridge was a time of pleasure and enjoyment. Another thing of interest would not forget to mention. On Sabbath afternoon or. Frick and i went to one of his neighbors to see a casket this was a specimen of very quaint and Fine architecture. The people were not at Home so i was unable to get its history Only As i could see it. It is said that this casket was found near White River. It is made of heavy Metal measures 5 feet to inches in length and weighs about 400 pounds. Its architecture is Fine and shapely at the head end it is formed some like a head and widens out symmetrically at the shoulders very much like the form of a human Widen ing at the hips and More slender towards the lower extremities. The top or lid is hermetically sealed and bolted with what were at one time round headed screw Bolt which shows considerable decay. The entire top or lid of the casket was a costly piece of architecture on the breast was a Flat place which indicates the place for an inscription but this was obliterated so no name w As discernible All around the outer edges were stencilled into the the hard Metal Fine Alines of vines and wreaths Over the breast was carved a Beautiful design which was drawn up on the right Side and pinned on the right breast truly a picture of Beauty both in design and architecture. The probability is that it Cost thousands of dollars and at one time held the remains of some potentate. There were found in it but to o Small Bones.

Church miss Clara reas is spending the week in Hicksville with her brother. Miss Essie Carey closed a successful term of school Southeast of Hicksville Friday g. Fitz Charles has moved into the Oberlin a number attended the Boxwell examination at Hicksville saturday. M a tors a p Point m ends. The promptness with which the Council approved the appointments of mayor j. P. Cameron tuesday evening was a sure indication that that body was Well pleased with the action of the mayor. The gentlemen appointed Are representative men and eminently fitted to take up and discharge the duties that will devolve upon them in their new positions. The tax commission is one of the most important bodies in the City and and the men chosen to that place will command the respect and Confidence of the entire people this Board will pass upon tax levies in the City and All people will be interested in having this work done Fairl and intelligently. And that is the Way it will be done by this commission. The Library Board is made up of most excellent gentlemen and the re is no doubt bub what this most notable institution will continue to grow under the new administration. We think mayor Cameron is to be especially commended upon the appointment of ii. B. Harris to a place on this Board. He gave up his time and Money to make it a Success when first started and there is certainly no Man More worthy or More deserving a place on the Board than or. Harris. Messes. Whitaker and Kehnast who make up the Board of Public safety Are two of the Best known business men Iii the City. The place to which they have been a ailed is one of the most trying in the City government but As they Are both men of Large affairs and Well qualified there is no doubt but what they will insist upon the affairs of Public safety being so administered that it will be a credit to the City and add Luster to the administration of mayor Cameron. The Ohio state journal says Hon Chas. N. Haskell of Ottawa is again dallying with the gubernatorial Bee and the word j comes from up state that a will j announce his candidacy for the head of the Johnson ticket Indue time. Haskell has been talked of in that connection in several campaigns but he never quite reached. He was voted for a the Zanesville convention that was captured by John la. Mclean but Cut but Little figure. Haskell is credited with having a Lone purse and with being willing to provide liberally for expenses. He is the Type of a Man that ought to have no t rouble in securing the Johnson backing. Hunt and conundrum contest.
