According to the statement of the company, just issued, the gross revenue from all sources for the last year was $25,000, and the expenses were $11,883.55, leaving the net earnings $13,116.55. Out of this, after the interest on the bonded indebtedness, amounting to paid, a little more than $.>000 will be left to be distributed as dividends on stock. As the bridges on the C. L. & N. are not built to support the big type of passenger engines recently put on the Pan-Handle, the Pennsylvania passenger train No. 21 due to leave Xenia at 8:30 was held here until almost IO o’clock for an exchange of engines. The light engine used on the local passenger train 306 was put on No. 21 when the local train arrived. Mr. William J. Kyle, a Xenia man who went to Canada in September, writes that he is very much pleased with the country and does not know when he will return home. He is located about thirty miles from Craik, where he and another man are in charge of a farm and general supply store owned by a Piqua, Ohio, man w ho came home to spend the winter. Mr. Kyle says the thermometer stands at about thirty-five below zero the most of the time and that there are two or three feet of snow on the ground. Messrs.

Of the various mid-winter society affairs the surprise party at the home of Miss Grace McClellan, west of tow’n, Friday night, numbers among the most enjoyable. The young people of the party, about thirty in number, met at the home of Miss Elizabeth Barnett and drove to the McClellan home< in a body. The evening was delightfully spent playing games and an amusing guessing contest took place, after which refreshments were served. The surprise party was made up of the following young people: Misses NelleTate, Blanche Newell, Elizabeth Barnett, Sarah Harper, Maude Selden, Maud McClellan, Florence Ankeny, Mary Ferguson, Carrie Burrell, Mary Dobbins, Ella Coll ins, Margaret Wolf, May Bull, a Speech Made in Court, and It Won the Case For His Client. Senator Vest, of Missouri, had been retained as the attorney of a man whose dog had been wantonly shot by a neighbor. It is said the plaintiff demanded $200. When Vest finished speaking the jury awarded $500 without leaving its seat. The speech in full is as follows: “Gentlemen of the Jury: The best friend a man bas in this world may turn against him and become his enemy. His son or daughter that he has reared with loving care may prove ungrateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us, those whom we trust with our happiness and our good name, may become traitors to their faith. The money that a man has he may lose.

ANOTHER FRIGHTFUL RAILROAD WAICX. Big Four” Passenger Train Collides Head on With Freight"! Train $39 and $40 a year for each^ fire hydrant, and a rental of $250 a year for the standpipe. The opinion of the committee, expressed in the communication to the Council, is that the hydrant rental should not exceed $30 a year, and that no rental should be charged for the use of the standpipe. Under the old contract, also, the consumers were required to pay the cost of constructing services in the street, and the committee recommended that the water company be required to pay for the cost of construction of service to the curb line.” So far the committee has failed to get the water company to agree to these terms, hence the delay i n mak i ng the report. The company has conceded that a reduction of $750 per annum might be made on the hydrants, but is not willing to be reduced to a point where there would probably be no profit in the business. Hon. Geo. Little, vice president of the company, was present and stated that the rates charged by the Xenia company were as low as in any town of like size and conditions in the State, but that the company was willing to concede a slight reduction on hydrant rentals, but not so much as the committee wished. Mr. Geo. Cooper, superintendent of the works, was present and called attention to the fact that his company now was furnishing more free water than is furnished in other cities with which he was familiar. Fifty streams of water, he said, run almost continuously, and 50,000 gallons of water daily are used in the schools of the city. He also stated that the light company draws $7500 a year from the city without furnishing free light to any city buildings, and that the natural gas company had been given a franchise without the exaction of even a single jet of gas free to city or any one else, and thought the liberality with which the water company had done its work ought to be considered. The discussion of the matter was kindly on all sides, and it is likely that an agreement will be I gotten at shortly. Special Announcement Regarding the National Pure Food and Drug Law. We art ,doused to announce that holey s Honey and Tar for coughs, colds and lung troubles is not affected by the National Pure Food and Drug law, as it contains no opiates or other harmiul drugs, and we recommend it as a safe remedy for children and adults.

Lafayette, Ind., Jan. 19.-A reputation may be sacrificed in a moment of ill considered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees to do us honor when success is with us may be the first to throw the stone of malice when failure settles its cloud upon our heads. The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog. Gentlemen of the jury, a man’s dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he may be near his master’s side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and hours at a time and that they must rest at least ten hours between runs. If the bill becomes a law it w'ould create a working schedule that would make Xenia, Big Four passenger train, known I sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper Cedarville Herald:—Suit was brought in Squire Jackson’s court by A. Bradford against J. VV. Hawthorne, claiming that he had acted in the capacity of real estate agent and that the commission of one per cent was due him. The sale price was over $8,000. It is claimed by Bradford that he sold the Hawthorne farm to Wm. Conley, but that when the papers were to be signed he backed down. Hawthorne claims that there was no sale, as no papers were signed or money given, and that Conley refused to comply with his terms. He also attempts to show by others that Conley did not purchase the place. The jury evidently was divided, as was plaintiff and defendant, for after being out some time, reported that it failed to agree and agreed to disagree. The juryAvas as follows: A. O. Bridgman, Joseph McAfee, John Johnson, J. II. Andrew, C. C. Weimer and VV. P. Townsley. The case will come before another jury next Monday. R; L. Gowdy represented the plaintiff and J. C. Foley the defendant. SILVER MEDALCON­ TEST AT CEDARVILLE the building through which' which is the central point on the pigeons belonging to him entered the place, and Ridenour alleges that Coy threatened to strike him with a hatchet, when he hit him on both sides of the head with a monkey wrench and a stick which he held in either hand. The wounds produced by the blow's were slight. Attorney VV. F. Trader represented Ridenour at the hearing Friday. AGED COUPLE ILL WITH DOUBLE PNEUMONIA Mr.and Mrs. Harrison Munger, prominent residents of Beavercreek township, have both been seriously ill of double pneumonia for the last week but the condition of each is improving and it is thought that they will recover. Mr. Munger is 80 years of age and his wife is 78 years old. The aged couple became ill of the disease at about the same time, and the condition of one has been almost identical with that of the other during their illness. EIGHT APPLICANTS ALREADY HEARD FROM three divisions above mentioned, a desirable location for the train crews. If such an arrangement should be a made it would be a big thing for the city.

The judges were Supt. F. M. Reynolds* of the Cedarville schools; Supt. Edward Brantner, of the Selma schools, and Mrs. Carrie Flatter, of Osborn, who is the county president, of the W. C. T. II. Many words in praise of the contestants were heard on every side. Mrs. Flatter who has had a wide experience in contest work, states that this one greatly excelled any diamond contest she ever attended. Not the least feature of the evening was the Hag drill given by twelve little girls. They were dressed in red, white and blue and each carried two small flags. The ladies of the W. C. T. U. contemplate giving another test rn the near future. con- Eight applications for the position of superintendent of the county infirmary, have been received by the board of infirmary directors. The election of a superintendent to fill the place made vacant by the resignation three weeks ago of H. C. Bankard, will not take place until February I, at the regular monthly meeting of the board of directors. _____________ Thousand Dollars Worth of Good. A. H. Thurnes, a well known coal operator of Buffalo, O., writes: “I have been afflicted with kidney and bladder trouble for years, passing gravel and stones with excruciating pain. I got no relief from medicine until I began taking Foley’s Kidney Cure, then the result was surprising. A few doses started the brick dust like fine stones and now I have no pain across my kidneys and I feel like a new man. It has done me $1000 worth of good.” Sayre & Hemphill., druggists. OASTOnX.4..

Enochs, aged 25, directed a bullet from a 38-calibre revolver at his heart and fell backward on the side walk near the door of the office of Dr. C. W. Evans, at Clifton avenue and Limestone streets, at 9:45 o’clock last night. Young Enochs is a clerk in the • drug store of his brother-in-law,' W. S.

JamestownJournal—The homes east of town in the Shady Grove and Pleasant View vicinities which were quarantined on account of the diphtheria scare, have about all had the ban removed by the health authorities. But one more case of the disease has appeared, Mrs. Frank Stephens, mother of the little girl who died with the disease, having contracted it in a very light form. The schools have again opened and the fears of an epidemic have passed. as the Queen City Limited, eastbound, collided head-on with a freight train near Fowler, Indiana, at 2:30 o’clock Saturday morning. The engineer failed to see the block on account of the heavy fog. The tender of the passenger engine was driven through the combination car behind it and only two out of the twenty-five, passengers in the car escaped alive. The passengers in the sleepers all escaped. Two sleepers, a day coach and the demolished combination coach were burned. Several of the victims in the combination coach were cremated. The private car of Vice President Schaff Ion the rear end was saved. Mr. Schaff’s wife was on the car, but was not injured. SPLENDID FARM FOR GALE. master as if he were a prince. When all other friends desert he remains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens. If fortune drives the master forth, an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying him to guard against danger, to fight against his enemies, and when the last scene of all comes, and death takes the master in its embrace and his body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, tnere by his graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad, but open in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even to death.” MEETINGS IN INTEREST Of FOREIGR MISSIONS. Cedarville Herald—Mr. Milton Hanna, son of Mr. and Mrs. G. C. Hanna, and Miss Effie Crawford, niece of Mr. Thompson Crawford, were married in the city of Logansport, Ind.,on Wed-1ries. nesday of this week. The event came as quite a surprise to the parents and friends of the contracting parties and it was not generally known here until today. Mr. and Mrs. Hanna will make their home in Chicago until Mr. Hanna completes his work in the theological seminary. Chronic Constipation Cured.
