Malcolm Anderson i Competition for this cup and it was a quot toss up quot Between several of the contestants As to who had the Best single ear. The judge or. J. D. Harper of Purdue deliberated quite a Little while upon the several ears i but after suming up All the Good Points and looking at the minor de i facts it was found that Malcolm Anderson of Pine Village had the most perfect single ear of Corn on exhibit and was accordingly awarded the Honor of championship and rhe cup. The Folio ing week or. Anderson exhibited this same ear of Corn at the state Corn show at Purdue University where he was again awarded honors but this time he Only Drew the second Premium owing to the fact that the Field was much larger and the contest sharper. And while we Are again referring to the Corn show we would again Call the attention of our readers to the fact that air. Harper gladly consented to return to Williamsport and give the Farmers of Warren county an illustrated lecture on successful Corn growing provided enough of them would get together to give Hirn a Good hearing. Just now while you have an Idle Day or. Farmer and before your Spring work begins would be a Good time to have professor Harper give one of his popular and interesting farm lectures which the review Republican is quite sure would be both profitable and instructive. Let us have a sort of a mass meeting at this office and fix a Date to have or. Harper return to our Little City. We can get the court room of of the court House and the expense will be Small As it will consist Only of his car fare and entertainment while in Williamsport. Boys Here is your Opportunity to hear a Good lecture and it is suggested we have an Early meeting and get an expression on the matter. Last Friday night a gang of Safe blowers visited our sister town of West Lebanon and during the night or Earl it saturday morning visited four or five places blowing open the safes and stealing merchandise but Fate was against them and they Only secured about $20 and some clothing. The Ira Cadwallader store was the first place to be visited by the men. It is thought they dropped off of Wabash train no. 91 at a Little after one o clock at the Hill East of that place walked there and started at work a Little before two o clock. A rear window of the store was forced by Means of a Jimmy after a steel screen had been removed. At this store they secured the largest sum of Money. From All appearances and the tracks in the Alley it would seem that one Man stood guard in the Alley while others were inside where they Cut fuse took blankets Macki naw Coats and overcoats from the Stock and threw them Over the Safe to Deaden the sound. Only the outer door of the Safe was blown but the Cash Register was robbed of about in Small change. Some of the Mackinac a Coats and blankets were dragged away Down the Alley by the men. They were tracked from the Cadwallader store to the Stolley amp Frame lumber Yard about a Block and a half Distant. There the door was knocked in the Safe blown open and less than $2.00 taken from the Iron drawer. The tracks of the three led from the lumber Yard to the elevator just across from the Wabash station.

Robert l. Goben of lower Warren was visiting in our City saturday. To my friends Early in this Campaign i was urged by those who Felt that the of window was taken out and Entrance fice of prosecuting attorney should gained through it. The Safe at the come to this county to become a elevator was not locked and was candidate for said office for another easily opened. From this Safe they term in View of the fact that the got a Small amount of Cash. They judgeship was now will be for the then made their Way eastward along next two years at least and has the Railroad tracks and from shebeen held by Benton county for the strides of the men As shown by their past ten years. Tracks in the Snow they were in a hurry. It is believed they timed their work in such Way that they could make their Way Back to the Hill East of town and catch the second Section of train no. 91, which train reached West Lebanon about 3 o clock in the morning. Railroad officials state that the train was heavy the wind Strong and that it was running rather slowly and that it slowed Down at the Hill Between this place and West Lebanon. It is asserted that it slowed Down to such an extent the men could have easily boarded it. This train reached Danville after being thus solicited i agreed to make the race but after making up my mind to enter the race i found that Benton county with whom we Are now on Friendly terms and which forms the other county of this circuit thought that they were entitled to both the office of judge and prosecutor. I tried to look the proposition squarely in the face and i have tried to act the True have no trouble being re nominated. Have met with approval.

Vood our congressmen from the tenth District he says his time is at present occupied looking after important work to such an extent that it will be impossible for him to return Home and make a canvass for his re nomination before March 7th. He says he would appreciate it if his friends in Warren county and throughout the District would look after his interests and give him their support for which he says he will be very grateful. As this is Only or. Wood s first term in Congress we predict he will altruistic part. During the past two campaigns i was supported by solid backing of my party both in the nomination and election. If my candidacy was to be responsible in the least for. Inciting a quarrel and robbers went West there is a possibility that they May have made their escape East As a party who lives in Williamsport and works in the car Coupler at Attica stated to a reporter of this paper that on saturday morning very Early a stranger came into the Wabash depot at Attica wearing new clothing and gave him a pretty Good old coat which he accepted. There was a train eastward about 3 50 o clock but it is stated that it was a fast freight and that it was running too fast for the men to Board it which explodes the Story told by the party working in Attica.
