"The Firemans Ward."
This play is to be produced Sept 8lh
at Waterman opera house, by Little Ol
lie Redpath and her excellent company.
It is quite a novelty in the dramatic
world, inasmuch as it is neither drama
or farce comedy, yet contains the element
of both, being described by the manage
ment as a pure wholesome story of
strong dramatic interest, in which every
character is portrayed by a comedy artist
It is a play with a plot played by comed
ians, all of whom . appsar in pleasing
specialties, songs, dances, medleys, etc,
giving a performance which pleases the
theatre-goers of any city.

Connor went to Giernwood last tyenin
and after a night in I he nicest village in
Cuss county Col. Connor furnished us
the nicest rig in the village and away we
went to Wabash to mingle with the dem
ocratic hosts. The ride of sixteen miles
to Wabash was without incident, yet the
corn crop muet be mentioned as being
very good indeed. If fifty bushels of
corn per acre at fifty cents per bushe
dosn't defeat democracy and all its kin
dred spiri: j that live on the misfortunes
and discontent of the people then we
may look out for a hard fight if good
times has its customary effect however,
The republican ticket will be elected
from top to bottem.
We arrived at the seat of war about
eleven o'clock and found many anxious
statesmen had preceded us. The battle
began by the calling of the convention
together by the chairman of the county
central committee. The organization
was completed by electing Dr. Wallace
chairman: B. McClintock, for senator;
F. E. White and W. B. f hryock, for
representatives; Jacob Trie.sch, will be
nominated for commissioner and II. D,
Travis for county attorney.

Do not be caught in the delusion oi
many thousands in postponing a home
until they can have an expensive one
This idea is the devil's trap that catches
men and women innumerable, who will
neyer have any at all. The laborer may
have, at the clc6e of the day, to walk or
ride farther than is desirable to reach it
but when he gets to his destination in
the eventide he will find something
worthy of being called by that glorious
and impassioned, and heaven descended
wrn ''TTnmo ' '
Young married man, as soon as you
can buy 6uch a place, even if you have
to put on it a mortgage reaching from
base to capstone. The much abused
mortgage which is luinto the reckless
man. to one prudent and provident is
the beginning of a competency and a
fortune, for the reason he will not be sat
sfied until hel'i paid it off, and all the
household are put on strictest economy
until then. Deny yourself all euperflui
ties and all luxuries until you can say:
"Everything in this house is mine than-
God! every timber, eyery brick everr
foot of plumbing, every doorsill." Di
not have children born in a boarding
house, tnd do not yoivself be buried
from one. Have a place where your
children can shout and sing and romp
and not be overhauldei for the racket.
Haye a kitchen where you can do some
thing toward the reformation of evil
cookery and ibo leseting of this nation
of despeptics. As Napoleoa lost one o2
his great battles by nn afticked of indi
gestion, so many men have such a daily
wrestle with the food swallowed that
thty haye no strength left for the battle
of life; and though your wife may know
how to play all musical instruments and
rival a prima dona, she is not well edu
cated unless she can boil an Irish potatoe
and broil a mutton chop, since the die
sometimes decides the fate of families
Have a setting room with at least one
easy chair, even though you have to take
turns at sitting in it, and books out of
the public library, or of your oyrn pur
chase for the making of your family in
telligent, and checker boards and guess
ing matches, with an occassional blind
man's bluff, which is of all games my
fayorite. Rouse up your home3 with all
styles of innocent amusement, and gath
er up in your children's lives a reservoir
of exuberance that will pour down re
freshing streaas when life gets parched
and the dark days come and the lights
go out and the laughter is smothered in
to a sob. T. De Witt Talmege.
