A of Quot the Hoosier Quartetti Quot John and Isaac Julian Herman Ammerman and Claude Kiger who also represented Frank Moore Sang and captured the audience having to respond to a Hearty encore. I have often wondered Why it was that people persisted in patronizing travelling humbugs of various kinds rather than to make purchases from people whom they know to be reliable. The country is being worked by agents in All lines and purchasers in nearly every instance get beaten. There is probably no line that has been so thoroughly worked As that of enlarging pictures and people Are constantly paying double treble and in Many instances four times As much for work As they would have to pay a resident photographer As almost any photographer acts As agent for some reliable House and is prepared to fun Unish Good work at reasonable prices. Instances Are quite common where people have paid $25 or a piece of work that could have been obtained for s6 at Home. These agents must of necessity charge More than a resident in order to keep up big travelling expenses. A Hen you want goods of any kind it is always safer to Purchase from people you know. Bertrand mrs. Fred Judy mrs. Nimrod Frank Welch was there with his ponies and Herschel a Elch Louis Cantrell and Avillie James dressed in proper costume representing different nations Rode across the stage. There was a hitch in this part of the performance As other boys expected to ride failed to appear and the ponies became somewhat unmanageable but considerable fun was created anyway. �?0�? this is the first time the u. B. Church society has Given an entertainment of the kind and they feel very grateful to All who so kindly assisted them in making it a Success. Much credit is due rev. Awarren who worked earnestly and faithfully. A Ilmer Gemmer will move into the C. Fisher property on Lin-Coln-st., lately Pui chased by him and thoroughly refitted. He has added to the building and rebuilt the inside throughout. This will make them a comfortable Home. The family will probably move in next a Eek. George stump reports a big Trade in hardware and implements and in his contracting and building operations he is kept Busy. He now has work enough in sight to keep himself and regular Force Busy until mid summer but he is prepared to take More contracts at any time As he can secure plenty of Good help. N. S. Pearson who left this county two years ago and move to Newton county has returnee and is now i Vruir one mile East o a Winthrop. Or. Pearson came to this state from Miami county Ohio thirty years ago and has been a resident of a Quot Arren count Ever since except the time he re sided in Newton county. The family will be welcomed Back As citizens of Awarren. Herman Ammerman instructed the Soldier girls in their Drill. De. Banes who was financially interested in the affair gave the instructions and trained the j Oung ladies who appeared in the various other drills. A year hence when you talk to democratic editors and politicians about the Tariff and attempt to chaff them for the utterances they Are now making they will say Quot of yes we knew we were lying but we were in a position where we must make a Bluff of some kind and we went on the principle that a in Well stuck to was As Good or setter than the truth. Any sane Man who gives utterances to his beliefs without Bias Well knows that the Dingley Bill is bound to work out int it the country s Good and i believe it that the lying and bluffing now indulged in by the aforesaid democrats will be of no Avail. You can buy any thing of american manufacture As cheap today As before the passage of the Dingley Bill. All kinds of Domestic woolens carpets boots shoes Iron and nails Are As cheap As Ever and there is nothing in the Law to make them higher except the general Prosperity of every department of business. Every intelligent Man and woman Well know these facts and know How to treat the army of National groaners now on exhibition. The receipts amounted to about one Hundred dollars. If All the wind expended in the yellow newspapers of the country could have been trained on Spain in one continuous Stream that in for tui ate old decaying monarchy would have been blown into cold space and into infinitesimal frag ments. The foreign demand for american horses will make the animal More valuable in a Short time. This added to the fact that breeders Are not raising one horse where four were raised a few years ago ought to stiffen the Market to a very great sex teat. Says the Remington press a xxx listed in Jasper county it is interesting to note that the county farms in our neigh Borin counties Are practically self sus Taining and that our own requires Abonit $4,000 per year in addition to the income and products of the farm to keep it up. There is no Good reason Why our county farm should not be self sustaining Anc. With a Good economical Board of commissioners it would be. Dating not Many years Back the Awarren county poor farm has been self sustaining but in the past two or three years extensive building improvements have been made yet with All this the farm has not asked very much of the county Over and above the receipts. Judge Claypool dead. Edison s advice to Young men is Quot never look at the this is not Good advice. Should a Young Man have no watch and if the Only clock in the room does t strike the hours the girl s Mother might find him still there when she came Down to get breakfast. Judge Claypool the noted Jurist who died at Indianapolis last saturday morning was a native of Fountain county and he first began the practice of his profession in Covington in 1852. His professional and political carreer was Brilliant. The deceased leaves five children to mourn his demise mrs. George w. Faris wife of the congressman and mrs. Thomas Vatson mrs. Charles Bradford mrs. R. B. Hilleary mrs Elizabeth and John w. Claypool. Four Brothers also survive Louis of Springfield and Evan Horatio and Richard of Fountain county. A gang of people Are now driving Over the country Selling ranges to the Farmers. This Range business has grown to be a great thing. The entire state is being canvassed. It seems strange that people will patronize strangers As they do when Home dealers claim that they can positively save purchasers Twenty five per cent. They say that not Only can they save you Twenty five per cent on the Purchase but they guarantee to sell you a better Range. Consult the hardware advertisements in this paper. The Dollar saving chances Are numerous now Days and the columns of the review Are constantly pointing them out to you. A. Pointer.
