When the publication of the press begun three ago it was without boasts or promises As to the future. The projectors of the ont Eirise had been encouraged to Lelieve that Jav Iolj a special sunday paper of some such to Harat Ltd Ras the press could be made profitable in in Diana Pous and they wore willing to test the matter by making an Exi it cry Muil venture. The Renej tion of the Ividor by the Public the Hearty and generous bestowed upon it by peo Jile Whoso judgement could be valued mid its steadily increasing circulation now Lai Ger Tolian that of any other weekly paper in the City have been Gratifying to the publishers and demonstrate that there is a demand among Indiana readers for such a jumper As the press. However the results of the exit ariment of frn Elve weeks compared with what has been accomplished in Fields apparently no better than Indianapolis do not encourage the publishers to believe that the possibilities of the Enterprise continued at the expense necessary to keep the paper up to a High Standard Are Worth the labor and investment required and As or. Quot will for time has determined to retire from the management of the paper to give exclusive attention to More lucrative journalistic duties it has been determined to Susi end the publication of the press with this Issue. The existence of the paper ends As it begun free from obligations to anybody except subscribers who i Aid in Advance and to each of them will be return etl the amount overpaid. Press publishing co. The Tepu i Licak Standard Beakel in nominating Gen. Harrison for president the Republican National convention acted wisely and Well. He undoubtedly has stronger politics As a candidate than any other Man whose name was prominently before the convention. His life has been one of rare purity his reputation is untainted and in his Public record there is nothing to indicate that he would not be a Safe Man to Trust with the High Power of governmental ruler. He is in every Way stronger than the party platform that has been made for him and he will doubtless receive the votes of Many people to whom the Republican declaration of principles is not entirely satisfactory. His nomination is an Honor to Indiana and Many democrats will doubtless vote for him As a matter of state Pride which gives Assurance of a Republican Victory in Indiana. The Day we celebrate. When Liberty enlightening the world takes her opera glasses and looks Over the country on fourth of july morning to see what is going on in the far off Corners of her Empire she is going to be somewhat surprised when she gets the proper focus on some Indiana her eyes will gleam until they outshine those of her Star eyed prototype in Kentucky when she takes in Indianapolis for the patriotic tumult prophesied for this locality will doubtless Mak. Buddha Wink and trem on throne in far oif India. Advices from outside districts however indicate a town Here and there that does not intend to celebrate the Natal Day. This is not As it should be. There is Only one fourth of july and the United states has it therefore she should commemorate it. To be sure it takes lots of noise and powder but there is no other Day known to Man More deserving of furore and Mirrah. Out with the Flag then the horns the crackers the sky rockets and the brass band to emphasize to citizens and the guest within the Gates that the a Are stir the United states and that the american spirit thus yearly rejoices Over and endorses their establishment. Summer resorts. An appreciable amount of superstition obtains among a Large class of people limited in time and finance As to the great superiority of Home Sweet Home Over All the summer resorts set Down in the books and on the Railroad maps. Of course Pond Lily districts the mountains where fir pillows grow and those regions where it is so Cool that the All Wool Blanket never gets a whiff of vacation Are not without their justifiable allurement and attraction. The sound mind however does not Ravel itself out yearning for the unobtainable or crack the stitches in its sleeve reaching out for the illimitable but settles Down in Sweet serious and Sublime Content to the cheerful contemplation of the things that Are. For the perfect maintenance of this admirable Frame of mind it is absolutely necessary that strict quarantine on outside temptations must be preserved. Let the being whose fallible mentality strays however so lightly towards the wish for fresher Woods and newer pastures paint for its discipline the horrors of being dressed up All the time and the drawbacks in the Way of cramped quarters and compulsory entomology which expensive vacation entails. In this cheaper summer abiding place none of these terrors come. There is always Shade in the Yard and no Lack of society on the Piazza. The ice Box is within reach of All and lemonade flows at the tap of the Bell. Old clothes Are always in style and the trunk lid does not bump the Back of the human head every time its owner wants a clean Collar. The mail drops in at the open door and the morning newspaper has the Dew of the printing office on it. There is no surf bathing to be sure but the diversion of sprinkling the Street is always at hand and the absence of a brass band at meal time is compensated for by the privilege of leisurely sipping undisturbed by the Stony Glare of the ministerial hotel waiter. Taking it by and Large Home As a summer resort bears away the Palm and the Only bankable reason Why a sane human being should go away from it is to afford himself the otherwise unobtainable Delight of a return. A praiseworthy ini it usury. It has been left to Chicago to signalized herself in an Industry not so extensive by any Means but equally As important and far More elevating than the pork transact is for which the Lakeside City has become so justly celebrated. The new departure consists of a scheme for providing offices stores and business houses of All kinds with clean towels. It originated with a poor Washerwoman who started with a few customers and the convenience of the system has so commended itself to a Public prejudiced against drying its he ads on soiled towels or newspaper that her patronage has increased until the business has assumed proportions requiring delivery wagons. New York and other cities have appreciated the Novelty and adopted it with improvements until companies which furnish soap towels and even Combs brushes and mirrors to offices for a stated sum Oer month Are regularly established features of metropolitan commercial life. The system is commended for its Economy and convenience and the advantages on the Side of cleanliness Are hardly to be Over estimated. There is room in Indianapolis for the introduction of such an innovation. Good and 1�zad tunes. In the discussion of Church music Quot Between Rev. G. L. Mcnutt and or. J. A. Rondthaler in the recent musical festival the latter a Eitleman put Forth an opinion which was provocative of a Good Deal of laughter As Well As Hearty endorsement. He remarked that it had been said that the Devil ought not to have All the Good tunes but that for his part he very much wished that the Devil had some of the tunes which had in latter years appeared in sunday school singing books. General experience will uphold this View of the matter. Many of the so called Quot gospel hymns Quot would make a respectable Jig Blush for its reputation. One in particular Quot he s the Lily of the vally the Bright and morning Star Quot always brings to mind that Lively refrain Quot he s a Darling he s a Daisy he s a dumpling he s a the too Giddy gospel Hymini ought to Reform. Newspaper lu3iber. It was in no sense unreasonable in Matthew Arnold to declaim so vigorously against the unwarranted amount of time and space granted by both press and Public to what he termed Quot the average individual Quot in the United states. It is a failing and a serious failing in the american Reading Public that it clamors so greedily for and dwells so eagerly on the unimportant events of unimportant people s lives in Many instances people whose Best punishment and most effectual education would be found in emphatic banishment to unmitigated obscurity. Of this kind of pabulum mrs. James Brown Potter has perhaps furnished As much As any modern woman known to the american Public. The Best critics have pronounced her a poor actress her own friends have deplored her persistence in staying on the stage and the Only claims to distinction which unbiased judges can discover in her composition Are a pretty face and an ability to Purchase and display handsome gowns. On these two frail Hooks however hang All the comment and gossip and it is a very Dull Day in the newspaper world that does not bring mrs. Potter and her doings to the columns of Many otherwise sound minded journals. Mrs. James Brown Potter has gone to Europe she has returned mrs. James Brown Potter has left the stage or she has no intention of leaving the stage mrs. James Brown Potter has separated from her husband or he has decided to leave her. In the minds of people who really desire to find something Worth consumption in their daily newspaper bread mrs. Potter has become a wearisome and a lifeless topic and until she catches fire at the footlights or commits suicide by plunging overboard from an Ocean Steamer her name should be tied up in a hard knot with that of John l. Sullivan or Ignatius Donnelly and relegated without delay to the lumber Pigeon Hole of newspaper Dom. Five Hundred were taken on a Picinic. People who have been educated to believe that cleanliness lies next to health As Well As godliness and who Are conversant with the Quantity of dirt that the Ordinary Street child can carry on his person without visible discomfort or embarrassment will concede and applaud the pure and meritorious Charity of this com a Tilory ablution. Chicago May have failed to attain any permanent reputation As a literary or political stronghold but if she is now intent on bending her Energy and ambition to Compass glory As a Center of cleanliness and purity the rest of the country will stand Back and heartily applaud As she wins her laurels. Indianapolis has free Baths but she has never yet been inspired to solve the dirt problem by their enforced application. The schoolmaster abroad. Every Well regulated person in the country must read with genuine pleasure the various reports of teachers outings which float to notice on the surface of daily doings. More than three Hundred school teachers sailed from new York for Europe on saturday. A Large party of Indianapolis teachers left for the Pacific coast last week and these vanishing instructive bodies Are Doti bless duplicated in other parts of this big geographical Commonwealth. The value of the teacher in the great Structure of civilization is not to be Over estimated and the fact that he and she can occasionally Lay Down the Dull routine of text Book and deluge parts of the world where rest and recreation obtain should be occasion for Hearty and Universal rejoicing. It should be the resolve of every True Friend to education that this cause shall not suffer in the absence of the schoolmaster. During that period let each Man and woman resolve himself and herself of for that composite pronoun 1 into strict guardians of the various essential branches so that the tourist teachers on their return shall find All the parts of speech Auve and kicking the geographical condition of the country unimpaired and arithmetical affairs in state quo. Bon voyage Oye toad piers and Best wishes for a rare Good time. Presidential honors like twins skip a generation. The Bandana of the Republican party indicates its intention to make democrats see stars. There is a Hall of busts in Rome. This item is utterly without any political significance. With a hankering to have somebody belonging to her get into office so that she can be at least temporarily handsome. The Ormas had a narrow escape when it was discovered that he resembled the husband of Mary a. Livermore. Suppose he had resembled mrs. Livermore a Nuremberg Man has invented a shoe made of wire net. Wii a net has been used in connection with the shoo business in America for Many Many years. The other candidates have one Consolation their Poi traits will be taken out of the newspapers. When the one cent postage Law obtains the eight hour postman will have to hire an assistant. Ingersoll does t swear but he is often heard to remark that the weather is As hot As st. Louis. There is a new play called Quot the postage stamp it ought to stick to the stage until it wins Success. The old roman can afford to carry a red Bandana. He is sup Josed to be Worth a million dollars. The banana skin diversion has been introduced into England. America will yet get even with the old country on the English Sparrow and the Side whisker horror. There is no doubt about the Lastig Fame of the name of Hendricks since it has been discovered that a member of this illustrious family in Shelby Ville has patented a Bustle. Valuable information for democrats is contained in the statement that a Little Borax added to the water in which re Ltd bandanas Are washed will prevent them from fading. A and the equal suffrage Sisters lii stored softly clan to Elan Quot Pepaw had ought to live it cause he s such a handsome Man the new York world says Quot Harrison s nomination has excited no it was state Pride no doubt that helped Indianapolis to manufacture a he he imitation. A Chicago judge was recently Alneil $100 for contempt of court. A Chicago lawyer staggering under 100 Worth of contempt for a Chicago court must have been a sight to behold. The japanese have Only one swear word. No wonder the authorities Are working so hard to keep Ball out of that comity. They Don t want to see the language bankrupted. Frances Willard s article on Quot woman in the pulpit Quot is not ably seconded by the report that a scandinavian woman evangelist has driven eight women insane by her preaching. A Florida Man who has just recovered from a severe finds himself unable to eat anything but raw Rabbit. A Fine Field of Industry lays open to this gentleman in Australia. Cut Imago papers publish regulations concerning mourning to be worn by widows of that City. It is in the nature of news to Indiana that Chicago widows Ever have real dead husbands. The new Orleans Pic anime records that Jeff Davis life is now Quot Blue with heaven s what the Picayune meant to say doubtless was that it was Quot Blue with Northern there is one Consolation at present open to the Man who gets his picture in the papers to advertise Catarrh remedies. In the tumult of the times he is liable to be mistaken for a presidential possibility. Bismarck has insomnia. He might have expected this when he took the contract of subduing the three Victorias. All the Defeated presidents should san mer in Oconomowoc wis. There Are five exclamations in Oconomowoc. The real journalist will be the Man who finds something to write about besides politics during the next four months. The Chicago news still spells Hoosier with a Little quoth Quot spelling it that Way does t make it that Way however. There is no letter quoth Quot in Vola Puk. That settles it no self respecting Hoosier will have anything to do with the gibberish. Toot toot toot through the midday Sun with a Horn and at night he bathes his blistered lips and regrets that he was bom. The prohibition party will not do much in new York. Croton water contains 526 bacteria to a teaspoonful by the latest census. Garfield might have done worse. Suppose she had sunk the illustrious family designation in the despised and rejected name of Smith it was an Indiana writer who said Quot let me but write the songs of a nation and i care not what editor gets Bald headed trying to read it is rumoured that Lydia Thompson s burlesque troupe will visit this country next year. Lydia is a Fine example of the survival of the Kickish. i Ean lioness. Simultaneously with the close of the Republican convention some Chicago citizens organized As a Quot Waif s Mission Quot seem to have been seized with a desire to do something strikingly non political and emphasized this laudable and virtuous intention by congregating five Hundred newsboys in a Public Bath House where six Barbers were assembled with clipping machines. The boys were rapidly closely shorn then plunged into the water and thoroughly scrubbed from head to foot. The Day following the cleansing operation a new suit of clothes was presented to each boy and the whole the Boston transcript ably defines a picnic As an affair in which some one woman does two thirds of the work and seven eighths of the bossing. Max o Rell says Quot american women have a kind of spirit Ahmed is this the genteel Way of saying that her Courtesy is rather Thiu the sprinkling cart is a corporation whose aim in life is to put just As much water As possible on Crossings and just As Little As the Law allows on the streets. A Connecticut woman died from eating peanuts the other Day. This obscure Bivalve does t intend to be outdone by the Oyster in the summer vacation Way. A miss Hawk in this state has petitioned to have her name changed probably so that she May keep her identity separated from that of the hand saw. Indiana wishes it distinctly understood that the Hooker presidential nominee is in no Way shape or form related to Chicago s sex mayor Carter Harrison. Event True woman who reads what the newspapers say about prominent men s wives and daughters is immediately seized the new York Tribune says of the convention Quot the Indiana crowd for the most part had the air and the dress of the Fann the Tribune is Only jealous because it did t get to ride Home on the Hay. A refrigerator pulpit has been invented for the summer pastor. Iced Tea intervals in the congregation now would bring mid summer religion pretty near Down to a con non sense standpoint. The Peoria saturday evening Gall objects to an Indiana poet having made Quot taut Quot rhyme with ought the rhyming discrimination of the Gall has probably become Wai Ped by editing dialect poetry. Although it is annoy med As non partisan the democratic party will Only keep hold of the fact that it has a share in the 4th of july this year by frequently referring to the Bandana Mai a on its Arm. When the ballots begun passin the result was some Harrasin but when he fight was done it was just Clear Harrison. The american meteorological journal Offei a prizes for the Best original essays on tornadoes. If american fluency is to be directed toward this theme the Tornado May As Well resign for its Days Are Mun ered. An Exchange wants to know whether any doctor was Ever seen to lift a banana skin from the sidewalk. Statistics on that head Are wanting but lots of banana skins have been seen lifting doctors off the sidewalk. The two Young men who propose to race through Niagara rapids in life boats ought not to be interfered with. The sensational element in the newspaper Reader has to be ministered to from some Quarter or other. Texas sittings says Gen. Lew Wallace has purchased a Home in Indianapolis. It was a mean trick for the author of the greatest american novel to do this without letting Indianapolis know a thing about it. Now doth the pretty summer girl Robed in her Mother Hubbard swing gaily in the Hammock and make forays on the cupboard. There is a Rumor out that or. Gladstone is not admitted to Good society in London. America cherishes a prejudice that any society that had the grand old Man for a Center piece would be in the highest sense Good a san Francisco Man is taking credit to Hun self for inventing a scheme to make it rain whenever he chooses. Any Indianapolis woman can do that with both hands tied behind her. She just sends out invitations for a Lawn fete. The Shah of Persia has introduced pianos and music teachers in his harem. When he gets a Good full dose of Quot sack Waltz Quot and Quot Maiden s prayer Quot he will wish All the ivories Back on the elephant or that he had died a Bachelor. This tiling goes any farther let it be remarked that the India method of disposing of widows sometimes presents itself As not altogether unjustifiable. Some of last week s political prophecies read very humorously in the ought of recent revelation. The Only reliable Campaign prophecy should be at lusted like Frank Stockton s Quot reversible landscape Quot which looked just As Well upside Down As any other Way. The Salmon in the River deep avoids the Fisher Man but greets him All too boldly at thirty cents a can. Japanese newspapers have been poking fim at the Mikado and he i proposes to use despotic Means for their reformation. What japanese fun is no american knows but if the Mikado wants the real article he should come Over and submit himself to the United states machine. The unusual deference and consideration displayed by the Chicago press in refraining from refer ing to the Baroness Grid Enberg As the Quot Baroness grip sack Quot is doubtless duo strike him and he paused Quot say is your baby a Republican or a democrats Quot it a Quot Well that s All right. I la go away but if it was a Democrat i d blow just As much As i wanted to the Small girl in politics. The Small boy did not do All the him blowing last week for the Small ii l occasionally took a hand at the Lively and refreshing game. Two ten year old girls tooting loudly along Washington Street were asked Quot girls what Are you blowing those horns for Quot they looked at each other in shame faced confusion. Their political education had evidently been sadly Negle terl. Smally one of them hated a Radiant face to the questioner and triumphantly replied sure enough for fun the Shuple my idea investigator a cussed on subdued and rebuked. Editorial echoes. Ideas Anil information Kroc a ii Dinna news Pastis. The Delphi journal makes the Good to the recent civilizing presence of so Many j suggestion that Quot Blaine cannot be our hoosiers in that City. Indiana will yet teach Illinois a thing or two. Where is that wandering blizzard such rumpus erstwhile made would Coile in mighty Handy now it s ninety in the Shade. The woman suffrage cause has t encountered a great Many drawbacks but tie bitterest drop in its cup is the late fashion of prefixing remarks upon the subject to Patent Medicine . Now no one will Ever read and thing on the subject for fear of Golden medical consequences. The Washington Post reports it As the opinion of a prominent Southern congressman that Quot this red Bandana business will have a tremendous influence among the Negi oes in the the Republican end of the country May offset that by nominating a Watermelon. That will touch the Plantation Darkey nearer where he lives. Avion first the Indiana Boom a handled on the knee twas thought to some resemble a Man named Walter but when its features softened Down and Sweet repose came on the nation said Quot Why bless its heart. It like Harrison Quot a Bov in Battle Creek mich., turned the Hose on the salvation army and the court responded by collecting 6.80 from the boy s parents. Of course the parents made it somewhat unpleasant for the boy but the Youthful offender carries along Avith him a Long line of symm Thiers who would willingly pay such an amount to help put a dam Jer on such a howling travesty on re Union. The Man who knows everybody. The new York Tribune advises or. Thur Man to prepare for the Rigours of the Campaign by going to bed with the Lark. What kind of Lark for instance there is one species of Lark whose special feature is the studious eschew ment of bed. The illustrious widows of this coi try seem to be coming to the front. First mrs. Logan at Chicago and now mrs. Beecher who rises to oppose the accession of or. Abbott to Plymouth Chur i pulpit. Before the universally acquainted individual is a Well known figure in most communities. He is not necessarily an old citizen for acquaintanceship goes by disposition rather than by Long establishment. It often happens that he is a comparative newcomer in a town or neighbourhood but his gifts in easily taking Root and readily branching out to lock arms with earner colonists give Points to the oldest inhabitant. His strongest role is accosting everybody whose orbit intersects his own by name if obtainable but in Friendly greeting whether or no. Forms and ceremonies Are his Abhorrence and the ferreting out of Given names for immediate application is his Best card. He wears no Awe inspiring title himself and the Latch string of his own Personalty hangs out to everybody s hand. Consequently he is Quot Jimmy Quot to everybody who knows him and wants to refresh his soul by Quot Jimm Ying Quot every Man that comes within his Range. That he is a popular Man in All strata of society can not be truthfully affirmed but that he is a King of Kings in the Region of the free and easy can not be disputed. The ice Man knows him Well and Calls him Quot Cap Quot the Street car Driver thinks highly of him As a Man who is not stuck up and the Lack of freezing hauteur in his make up commends him to All the stable boys in his immediate Vicinity. Men of narrow minded notions have forsworn his acquaintance and have endeavoured to hold him at Arm s length Only to find themselves some Balmy morning being pot ded on the Back with vigor and saluted by him tis Quot old after All the Man who knows everybody is a vast improvement on the Iron spine Man who never knows anybody. The former errs on the right Side and if he could Only be Cut up and distributed in the Demeanour of some of his neighbors society would be appreciably benefited and life in Many regions be a much More genial and diverting occupation. The Small boy in politics. There is no More valuable or indispensable element in Campaign times than the Small boy. As a general thing he is not very firmly Gro imbed in his political preferences but in ardor and pernicious activity he is above reproach. It must not be said that he has no politics for indeed and in truth he has All politics and outdoes in political agility the Meriest renegade that this science has known. His tin Horn ebullition in times of such excitement Are not dictated by any narrow party prejudices but have the whole world of platforms and parties for their own. Any attempt on the part of the Small boy s Natt iral guardians to restrain or direct his Campaign utterances generally precipitates a conflict that terminates in Victory for the Small contestant. No with stau ing his readiness to toot in All causes however occasionally a Small boy looms up who is offensively partisan. Such a strange phenomenon in the person of a Small coloured youth came tooting loudly near a North Illinois Street residence the other Day. The baby of that household was asleep and it was essential for the family peace that its rest should not be broken. The Small boy of the House went Forth and accosted the coloured youth with the Horn. Quot say you must t come blowing that Horn round Quot Why not Quot Quot cause our baby s Quot of pshaw who cares for your old baby i la blow a i want the defiant politician lifted his than to his lips and was about to Send off a louder groan than usual when a thought seemed to president but can be first citizen of the the Parke county news thinks the red Bandana and the bloody shirt will be As interesting a subject to Quot Luculle As the red headed girl and the White horse. The Peru Republican says Quot Indiana is not coming to the front l it is already there. In learning in agriculture in Art in literature Indiana stands in the front rank. The Terre haute evening mail is of the opinion that Quot the dialect is being run into the Liis is a very bold edict from the very heart of the dialect District the new Albany Public press advances the View that Quot democratic thieves Are no better than Republican this is a non partisan principle that the country cannot have too much of. The Muncie times has discovered that Quot the next president might be called the Centennial president. It will be just one Hundred years from the election of America s first t4ie Greensburg review tie editorial spread Eagle try her in the preliminary remark that Quot the big Flagon the court House Tower will the winged winds for the first time on the the Booneville Standard says Quot the bracing atmosphere of Alaska is commended to those who cannot keep Cool in this keep Cool the Standard must be trying to live Down the fact that this is presidential year. The fort Wayne Gazette says Quot the coolest thing these hot Days a run into the country on a the Gazette misses the Mark the coolest thing these hot Days is the Way the bicyclist rms into the pedestrian on the pavement. The Terre haute mail is disposed to regard the Chicago convention As a great educational influence. It has justified its existence in that the Issue will undoubtedly educate chicagoan to discontinue spelling Hoosier with a Little the Kokomo dispatch congratulates itself that Quot on the fourth there Avill be no Celebration no display in that town but Quot a Jay of recuperation and rest a Nice quiet ought to be ashamed of itself no patriotic town of tight to want that kind of a Day. The Evansville journal takes the Rostrum for the sunday newspaper and among other pertinent remarks on the theme says that Quot a great sunday newspaper is a Factor in every Good work a amp its tone is moral and it is read not Only by Church goers but by a great majority of tha people who Are not the Carthage record announces a discovery that Quot Home Talent burglars Are about to take the town Quot and intimates that if the authorities Don t bestir themselves vigilance committee methods May become a necessity. Thus hath the Quot White Cap Quot out awry begun to Bear fruit even the Domestic by Triglar is not Well thought of in his native place. The Martinsville Republican arises boldly to announce that Quot those who want themselves puffed up in this paper for office or in any other manner must Plank Down the the Republican appears to regard newspaper publishing in the Light of commercial transaction and such Candor in a world of simulation has at least the refreshing Charm of Novelty. The Washington Gazette reports Quot no marriages Quot for last week Quot weather so warm As to make it necessary to devote All spare moments to keeping Cool and leaves no time to entertain cupid s Washington must be having weather beyond the memory of the oldest inhabitant and is certainly distinguished in recording the first time that Indiana cupid has succumbed to caloric. The Shelbyville Republican states that the citizens of that town Are preparing to resist being Cut off from the list of Indiana towns receiving signal service. To outsiders this seems a serious error. There Are Many localities with no Prospect of being discontinued which would rather relish the idea of having a Good old fashioned Thunder storm without being worn out by three or four Days miser Erable apprehension. Inst Busty of Ohio grief. The servant girl question is an Avenue to interesting study of human nature. An Indianapolis family lately imported a newly made widow from Ohio to serve in this capacity under the delusion that her recent grief would bind her interest More closely to Domestic affairs. The first week of her incumbency w As largely occupied in sitting about in depressed attitudes which she explained by saying it made her so unhappy to think of her husband soldering in the ground. At the beginning of the second week she plucked up sufficient spirit to have her photograph taken for an Ohio Man she had loft behind her on top of ground and at the end of the week requested to be excused that she might hasten to Ohio and dwell in the same town with the new object of her affections. This incident reflects severely on the stability of Ohio grief
