this demand a small cigar manfacturer in
Washington, this State, whose name is lost
to fame, started in to make a cheap "roll

Rev. Conwell's Lecture.
The lecture of Rev. Kassell H. Conwell
in the Court House, <>u ihe evening of the
2d inst., wa« in all respects the most novel
and cntert&iniDg of any yet delivered under
the auspices of our Lecture Association.
It was novel because it introduced a new
character,whose history is but little known
in this country. When Mr. Conwell an
nounced that in treating bis subject, "The
Heroism of Private Life," he would tell of
one of the greatest patriots and men who
ever lived, in any age or clime, all expect
ed to hear of some great and well-known
character, some one of when they had read
of, or at least heard of. But when he said
the name of his hero was Daniel Manin, of
the city of Venice, Italy, all opened their
eyes in astonishment! And yet the history
I of the struggle in Italy, by which its peo
ple gained great political rights, confirm
all the lecturer told of him. He was a
patriot. He combined in his character
elements rare in man, —the power to lead
and govern a people and the power not to
desire to do so. Manin, (pronounced Mah
neen in Italian), was a rare and unselfish
patriot, a fearless delender of liberty, an
unconquerable foe to the oppressors of his
country and to all tyranny and wrong. He
suffered terrible trials in defense of his
people, but was finally crowned their de
liverer and was President of the free city
of Venice. There is no doubt but that the
influence and example of our Revolution
ary heroes fired the hearts of many in
Europe and went far to produce such pa
triots as Daniel Manin, who may be term

Washington is one of the most interesting
cities in the Union. It is esteemed by
many the most beautiful city in America,
and the fact that it is the Beat of governient
and the location of the handsomest public
buildings in the land makes it interesting
to every citizen.
Both branches of Congress will be in

The public buildings, embracing the Capi

and Navy Departments, the great Smith

"The folks over to tho CITIZEN office
said if I'd give 'em $3.00 they'd send me
the value of $1.50 plus $2.40, an' dad an' I
decided to do it."
James was a wise boy. He learned that
$3.00 was the clubbing price at which he
could get the CITIZKN for the family and
"Wide Awake" for himself and the girls;
both for a whole year. Our readers should
know that "Wide Awake" is the famous
Boston magazine for young people (100
pages every month) ana costs $2.40 alone.
But with our usual enterprise we have
arranged to offer that magazine and the
CITIZEN lor a while, for $3.00. The CITIZKK
will take care of all orders, and show any
one the magazine.

Farmers, Here Is a Chance.
The Commercial Gazette, of Pitts
burg, is the friend of the farmer. It
favors relieving farmers of taxation
to the extent that corporations can
bear; in fact, it is the farmers' friend
in everything that is jußt and reason
able. The coming session of the
Legislature and Congress will be of
great interest to the agricultural
class, and all news of importance to
them will be found in the Wet/kit/
Commercial Gazette. Its market
reports are the authorities for buying
and selling in Pittsbnrg, where it is
recognized as such by all dealers.
