W. A. Largent, started yesterday morning for St. Marys where they will make their home this winter. A school district in Miami county has hit upon the novel idea of hiring teachers by having each applicant give a public exhibition of his ability to teach.

Any school board who would ask such a thing has no back bone and any teacher who woidd make such a trial is a fool and should be refused the school. We have just received from the publishers, S. Brainard's Sons, 145 Wabash Avenue, Chicago, copies of the "Red Hot Democratic" and the "True Blue Republican" Campaign Song Each book contains sixteen pieces of music arranged for male quartette, with words and music complete. They arc not cheap word editions. The price of each book is but fifteen cents and will, do doubt, have a very large sale.

Before coming to town to do your trading look over the paper and see who is the most liberal advertiser and then go to him and buy your goods, and our word you will never regret it. You will find the advertisers are men of push and enterprise, and will give you better bargains than a man who is too close fisted to spend a dollar for fear he will not get it back again. The day for a man to carry on a successful business without advertising is past. Competition is so close that he must let the people know what he has, or he will never make a success. Patronize the man who advertises.

Kemp met with quite an accident while doing some lifting the other day by spraining the tendons and muscles of his right hand. Any one wishing a bargain in Dress Goods or Boots and Shoes will do well to buy of Warthen as he is closing out regardless of cost. The rain which visited this section of the state the first of the week was the best rain of the season and will be of great benefit for seeding.

The gentlemen who talk of bonding the county for a court house and getting the people into debt these hard times had better look to their laurels. J. B. Haney presented this office with a fine large watermelon one day last week. Mr.
