According to call, a goodly num
ber of ladies and gentlemen met at
the High School room Saturday
evening for the purpose of organizing
a literary association. Hon. Chas. A.
Speire was called to the chair, and
Chas. Briudley, Esq., selected as tem
porary secretary. Remarks concern
ing the benefits of such an association
and suggestions as to methods were
made by the chairman, by Prof. Cra
mer, W. A. McAllister, F. A. Clark,
John Eusden, Herbert Lawrence and
M. K. Turner. On motion of Mc
Allister, a committee consisting of
M. K. Turner, Miss Martin, Prof. L.

Carl Kramer was appointed upon
constitution and by-laws, to report
at the next meeting. The committee
were also instructed to assign parts
for the meeting next Saturday even
ing, which is to be at the same hour
and place. On behalf of the com
mittee, a special, argent invitation is
hereby extended to all who desire to
become members of the association,
to be present next evening and take
part in shaping the organic law of the
same. There is no question but the
city needs just such a society as this
may be made, aud its meetings ought
to be well attended.
A New Baala
Capt. Wadsworth reoently pur
chased the two-story brick building
adjoining the Columbus State Bank
on the north, and has thoroughly
overhauled it and lowered the floor
of the first story to a level with the
sidewalk, thus making a higher
ceiling, and a much handsomer room.
The Capt. is now east purchasing a
full line of fresh groceries, with
which the Wadsworths will open up
business in a few days. Crockery
and glassware will also be specialties
of the business.
Many of our citizens will remem
ber that the Captain was formerly
engaged here in a like business, and
now returns to his first love, so to
speak, "to grow up with the country."
The Captain is well known as a
shrewd business man and those who
deal with tho Wadsworths can expect
to reap the advantage of bis knowl
edge and tact in purchasing the best
of goods at the most reasonable rates.
John U. Loseke, living near
Shell Creek, was fearfully mangled
Tuesday la9t. While using a two
horse bay rake in his meadow, the
neck yoke, came off, frightening the
team which ran away. The axles of
the rake were broken, throwing the
unfortunate man to the ground. He
had three ribs fractured and mashed
inwards, one eye protruded from its
socket, but was pushed back; his
head and face were considerably
bruised. At first, hopes were enter
tained of his recovery, but on Sunday
last he expired.

do much to save the afflicted hogs,

thing can be done by way of pre

commended as valuable: change of

old pens for this purpose is recom

The Rev. S.Goodale, D. D., rector
of Grace Parish of the Episcopal
church in this city, baa tendered bis
resignation to the vestry, to take
effect Nov. 1, next, or sooner, if a
clergyman is secured for this pastor
ate. The increasing infirmities of age,
and the multiplied cares of the rectory
have led our venerable Father to re
tire from the activities of parish
priest. The servants of God who
have labored so long in word and doc
trine as has our rector, deserve and
will receive the kindest sympathy and
loving remembrance of the devoted
children of the church, and the bless
ings pronounced by the reverend
clergy are renewed in the answers to
earnest supplications and invocations.
The sincerity and piety of Father
Goodale are apparent to all , the ear
nestness and fidelity of his labors are
sealed to bis own glorious reward,
and the talents he has devoted to the
cause of Christ have been blessed of
God to the good of many souls.
The above reward will be paid for
