Now that the great exposition is so nearly Complete in All its parts the attention can not but be attracted to certain exhibitions there More Beautiful or More useful than others.

Just beyond at the Entrance to the Central aisle is a display of French China and fancy goods from the House of John a. Mohlenhoff no. 40 and 48 West filth Street. Here is a most exquisite dinner set of delicate Green and Gold a handsome fruit set an individual set that we covet.

Among the druggists sundries Are tiny Scales perfumes that generously dispense their fragrance in spite of stopper and Silken tie tempting bottles of Lang Lang and White Rose brushes and mirrors. None need go unkempt with such supplies at 90 West fourth Street. Just opposite in the same ai6le, is a Case of Gold fens manufactured by John Holland no 19 West fourth Street. In this collection Are specimens of the various goods made by this House. If any doubt that rare workmanship is executed in Cincinnati let him examine these goods. Or. Holland makes not Only the pens but the holders and Pencil cases also. They Are of Wood of rubber of Gold and of Pearl tastefully ornamented and ingeniously contrived. We noticed a pen Pencil and knife Holder combined that wives should remember when selecting Christmas its for their Liege lords. A hint to ours. There Are in the United states Only eight manufactories for Gold pens of great influx of al i Torso i lie Cut Flower if play tie Dusseldorf paintings the exposition is now in Lull tide of Success. Complete almost in every department it is without doubt the greatest exhibition Ever held in America triply surpassing the once la Nous world s fair held in new York. The attendance yesterday footed up 19,200, car exceeding in numbers any patronage heretofore extended a previous exposition Ata corresponding term of their existence. The display of Cut Flowers last night was really gorgeous in its magnificence. It was made at the usual place on tables set on the Bridge or passage Way Over horticultural Hall. The display was Rich in geraniums Verbeno dahlias &c., &c., though very thin in Gladiolus there being but one lot of them on exhibition. The awards made by judges John Underwood of Columbus and or. J. I. Jones of Cincinnati were As follows Best display first Premium Thomas Knott amp son $25 second Premium a gust Sunderbruch $15. Best display of Gladioli first Premium j. S. Cook amp co., $15. The l ues8eldorf paintings nine in number arrived yesterday and were placed in position after the close of the exposition last night and to Day they attract Universal attention. This was acrimonious by opposed by or. Simpkinson and the la resident and the proposition was lost by the following vote ayes messes. George Sharpless l. C. Weir a. L. Helm Quot.

Hicks Nis signature to a receipt for that amount. 11 flashed upon capt. Hicks in a moment that he had been victimized by or. Conkling a Nice Young Man and he forthwith sought out commissioner Hal lit Lay and Laid his statement before that official. An examination of the Law revealed the fact that while it made provision for cases of Back pay Bounty or pension it was reticent ii the subject of overcharges for obtaining prize Money a fact which or. Conklin and his Man Friday doubtless Well knew and this fact coupled with their having Hicks receipt will doubtless enable them to go a whipped of Justice unless perhaps an action for obtaining Money under false pretences will hold against them. Conklin and his Man Friday claim that the whole thing is an attempt to blackmail them and ruin ? their reputation. The first week of the exposition closed wednesday the result is most satisfactory the attendance being greatly in excess of that of any previous exposition at a corresponding period. The country people Are now coming to town by thousands and their presence makes the streets of the City and the exposition buildings especially very Gay.

While he was away some one unfriendly to him slatted the report that his absence was caused by his desire to enjoy the company of a woman who was not his wife. Wednesday afternoon Kohler returned from new York and the news of the reports circulated about him during his absence excited him greatly. Lle Deela cd that they were false in every particular and that he would not live in a world so filled with liars. About 12 of clock last night he attempted to put his rash threat into execution by shooting himself w Ith a i Tolin the bed room of his residence. Fortunately for him the Ball of the weapon struck him on the frontal Bone of his head wherein is almost a half Inch thick and instead of finding himself a cold Corpus to Day thanks to the services of a bad aim and hrs.

They Are unlike All other paper collars in having All their edges loaded underneath doing away with that objectionable Sharpness that other paper collars have and rendering it impossible to detect that they Are not Linen.

Time passed on and though Captain Hicks repeatedly called at Conklin s office to see what Progress was being made in the collection of his Little Bill the result was not satisfactory. One Lav however 3ir. Arnold informed Captain Hicks with considerable difficulty they had been enabled to collect the Elai i but that the government would ouly allow $39 go As capt. share.
