Obituary Thomas LeHew. DIED : At his residence inDelphos , Ohio , Jan. 8th , 1891 , Thomas LeHew , aged 91 years , 5 months , 21 days. Deceased was the father of J.S.LeHew , Esq. , of this city. He was born of French parents at Frontroyal , Va. . July 17. 1799. In 1805 his parents emigrated to the new state ot Ohio and settled at Muskiugum Falls , now known as Janesville , Ohio. In 1820 he married Catherine Fletcher , who bore him twelve children. The death of his good wife 'only separated them after 66 years of wedded life. The children all lived and were married before death visi ted that household. Seven of them were boys , flve of whom served in the union army during the war of the rebellion , their aggregate ser vice was more than 15 years. He voted the democratic ticket until after the breaking out of tbe war , when he voted for Abraham Lin coln and has continued to vote the republican ticket. The citizens of Delpnos will long re- member Father LeHew , who in pleasant weather , to within a few months of his death could be seen upon the streets of that city , staff in hand , giving to each passing acquaint ance a kindly word of recognition. Life to him was a joyous reality. There was naught of bitterness in bis nature. Ho was in love ( with tbe world and at peace with bis fellow men. His was a kindly , gentle spirit , living beyond the fulness of its yearsr when the reaper came it was not death to him. BANKSVILLE BUDGET. It looks now as if the farmers ought to start the "ghost dance. " as it seems that the Indians got sympathy and rations that way while the farmers here are much left to their own re sources and the drought got the resources. Don't forget to keep agitating the broom factory scheme. The country about McCook can raise broom corn and brooms are as staple as sugar and will always keep until sold and the whole country uses brooms and there is no reason to keep McCook from having as good a broom factory as any town in tbe state. The farmers can furnish the broom corn. Our fine weather has got a snub , ana 'the change started about the 7th inst. , being so fogy all day as to shut off the view except a few rods , and at evening snow commenced falling , and the 8th was a stormy day , and tbe 9th when the storm ceased the snow was about one foot on the level. At this writing , tbe 12th , tbe snow is much drifted and travel is blocked except on horseback. Saturday , C. S. White , mail carrier for Banksville. took the mail via Vailton to McCook and had to lay over at Vailton and arrived at Banksville about noon. OBSERVER. A Scrap of Paper Saves Her Life. It was just an ordinary scrap of wrapping paper , but it saved her life. She was in tbe last stages of consumption , told by physicians that she was incurable and could live only a short time ; she weighed less than seventy pounds. On a piece of wrapping pacer she read of Dr. King's New Discovery , and got a sample bottle ; it helped her , she bought a largo bottle , it helped her more , bought another and grew better fast , continued its use and is now strong , healtby. rosy , plump , weighing 140 pounds.
