At the special election held last Friday, was decided to add another room to the old school btiildinir. The new room ill bo twenty by thirty feet aud enclose hall between the two rooms on tiie. south. These additions will add much to the convenience of the teachers and pupils and to the' effectiveness of the school. When a witness of ordinary iutelii gencc is asked the (lucstion Do you con- ider tho defendant was druhl as charged? ho hangs his head and asks for definition of drunkenness, it is notli- ng more than just and proper' that the court should consider the dkmkanoh of the witness os well as tEG direct testimony in rendering a decision.

Last week we said something about there being ample time to laugh at our fears when everything in the vegteable line seemed burning up, so hot and dry was the weather. Last Monday night the hot and dry spell was- brokeu by a glorious rain and a cooling temperature. Since which time up to date (F.iiday morning) there have been several fine showers.

These ra-ins pratically put the corn crop out of danger and ensure a large yield. The reports from all over the state show the rain fall was general and in soSte places very heayy. Ed. Sun: The Union Labor man, of Liberty Township, met at the Byron. School house Thursday evening, Aug.

1, and organized a Union Labor Club with 16 members. The meeting was addressed by Messers Gray and Wise of Coffey and apeeeches were made by Several other gentlemen. A great deal of euthusl asm was manifested and evnry body-seemed confident of succes in the coming contest.

Kinyon, Secretary Fred Shenk having reached his twenty first mile stone in the jourrfeyof life last Wednesday, his parents resolved to hon or Iho occsion by giving him a surprise party. Accordingly invitations were sent out and a goodly number of young folks gathered at the parental abode, Wednesday evening where they spent the hours in a manner befitting the occasion, Mr. Fred was greatly surprised of course, but having been in the butcher business some time he was not easily "cowed," so stood the oideal pretty Willi.

Many farmers come to town to help in the general rejoicing- over the rain and tho prospects. A pcf son writing a letter last Wednes day could properly arrange flye 8's in line. When can the like properly be done with any other figures. We leafn frfanrlMr. Jas.

lieeney that quite a number of CHttle died from the effects of the terrible heat in the Kan eas City stockyards last week. We romraend the article entitled "Th two edges of the sword" to our Republican friends who are declaring the Prohi bition party to" bo a democratic nex. They were only talking politics, you know, that caused the marshal to make the arrest, probably only discussing the merits of the "ringing" temperance plan in the Chicago platform. Our farmers should save all the hay possible, as it is sure to bring ar good price if kept for the spring market, or if fed to stock at home in greater qnantitie it will pay in the increased value the stock. We wish to make a correction iu a statement we' made some time since when we said that Mrs, A.

J. Graham had sold her resident' property to Mr. Davi Gaiiey. It should have been Mrs. Matilda Gailev.

We understand that Mrs. L. A. Carpen ter and sister, Mrs. D.

Wo have spoken frequently of the profit and ndvatituges of a Canning fuctory tor our town and country, Iu view of the Immense quantity of early corn, tomatoes, piuplunt, and all otherklnds of fruits and vegetables raised in tho country tributary to Yates Center, it certainly seems that it would well pay the Investor to engage in the' enterprise. With a good plant established, our farmers, and fruit growers would soon furnish an abundant supply of cannabic fruits and vegetables.

They would thus find a reud-y market for their produce and thousands of dollars puss into their hands where now their perishable produce is often an ontiro loss. There is no such thing as overstocking the market in cunued corn, tomatoes, for they are sihple'ar-ticles and are always in demand. Tho cost of canning is small compared with the profits mid if properly canned, tho goods will keep for a -lifetime. Who will undertake this enterprise? By all means let us hare a canning factory.

The Ma jor.like the democratic party of which he is a typical member, plead guilty at the start, aud thus shut out all discussion, but the Cob, like the Republican parly of which he is a typical member, plead not guilty and thus necessitated a trial. Several witnesses were examined, one testifying that the Col. "was no drunker tbnn usual" another that if ihe Col.

was drunk lie was too as they had drank together, and the Col. himself testified that if he was drunk yesterday he was drunk-today.

who lias enjoyed free access to all tlie General's ptivate papers, is very accurate and complete. It is of pentiancnt and stnndard value to the American people and thousands of copies will be sold, not only among his party members, but also among the masses of tho people indis criminately. It is purely Americun in its revelations national' in its examples, patriotic in all its teachings, and will inculcate in our rising generation the deepest self-respect, and incite to great er energies tlie noblest ambitions. It is the record of. a self-made man; tho biography of a typical American life; charming story, reaching from the log cabin of a pioneer to positions of nation al honor.

When we read (in the narrative of his ambitious boyhood) of his early struggles for an education, and find the hearthstone of 13 cubin floor serving him both as slate and tablo, the flame and glow from the burning logs as his only light, while be, prostrate on the flooi, in absence of-better accommodations, pursues- his studies after a hard dy's work on the farm; when we watch him in his walk of twenty miles to learn from another boy how to pronuncc aLalin diphthong, we discover in him a will commensurate to the way, and find exemplified in him the qualified acceptance of the saying "where there's a will there's a way." Our expectations of great things in the detail and progress of this remarkable man's life tire never disappointed. Nor is it surprising to learn of his intimacy with such men as Lincoln, Greeley, and Gyint; his distinguished record in the civil war, wherein he won his well-earned commissions; his endearment to both the whites aud blacks of the South, t.nd his popularity among the mixed multitude of the North, East, and West; his splendid business career, and noble Christian activities; his championship in many patriotic movements; his eminent soeial quulities, eloquent oratorial abilities, philanthropic spirit, and, essentially, his well-known temperance principles: It is not necessary that one should be an experienced agent to sell this' Biography. A million of our people aro to-day looking toward General Clinton B. Fisk with the greatest interest. The distinguished Standard-Bearer and Presidential Nominee of the Prohibition Tarty is undoubtedly the honored cynosure of the nation iu this campaipn.

Th calumny so freely resorted to by opposing factions in a Presidential Campaign no doubt, be directed against him. Ail this may be effectually mvi by the presentation of facts culled from this history of his life. Bis record is beyond reproach, ithout a stain, and full of honor. All who are in sympathy with the best-interests of their country, who appreciate a charming bock, who would place a stepping-stone of at the portals of youthful ambitiou, mid who would fully inform Ihemselvej of tlie life history of General Clinton B. Fisk, should hasten to secure copies of this Biotmphy.
