JOHX LARIMQRB, of Oakland Twp.
No question has harraased the members
of tbe ConaoQ of this town mora than that
of tha method to bo adopted in assessing
for the sowers. Tbe matter baa bean
brought np at every mooting of the Coun
cil for the past three months; as good legal
and basineas talent aa there is in the town
have taken part in tha diseuseion, and after
the matter bad boon (tally considered tbe
Council adopted tha foot front plan, with
the allowances for side street frontage, as
published last week.
The law itself under which tbe Council
' contracted for tha sewerage suggests the
foot-front plan; and the allowances made
for tha aids streets an the aame aa thoee
made at tbe suggestion of Bx-Bonator
Wallace for his town.
If tbe asaeasments were made according
to the valuation of the properties sewered
a manifest injnatice would be dona tha
owners of tbe improved property, and aa
attempt to combine tha valuation and
frontage plana would reeult in intermina
ble trMble.
A sewer benefit* a residence just a* much
a* it doe* a bosines* block, it i* almoet a*
much benefit to a small house a* a large
one, and it inersases tbe value of a vacant
lot immediately. Several of our citizen*
are iiiimi for vacant lota and tbeir first
argument in trying to sell those lots will
be that they are sewered.
When people signed for sewerage they
knew they wonld have to pay for it; it is
needed and now that the plan of aaeees
ments is known, petitions for sewerage
continue to poar into tbe Council chamber
from ail parte of tbe town.
If tbe geatlemen who is now objecting
to tbe plan of aaseesment* adopted by the
Council, and who writes over the signatnre
of "More Anon" has a better plan to sug
gest, or any plan whatever,he should make
it publlo.
A man with so many adjective* in bis
month ought to have some ideas in bis
bead, and be should have given tbe {Coun
cil tbe benefit of them long ago.

THI recent evente in Vow Orleans, and
in the coke region of tbis state, make it
obvious to aU A—rican citiieus, whether
native or aatnraliaed,.tbat tbe tide of im
migration from the stome of Europe mast
be stopped. The Italians who are fiocking
to tbis oonntry.oome from Naples,Measina,
Palermo, and other eitie* of southern It
aly. all of whiek, outside of the epot* that
are kept clean for ynblie occasions and the
entertainment of stringers, are worse than
pig pens. Tbe people are dirty and lasy,
eruel and Immoral, and void of everything
that goee to make np an American eitisen.
Tbe Huns are probably no better, and like
tbe low clees Italians they mistake tbe lib
erty of tbi* ooontry for license to do wtaat
they pleaee. Our immigration and natur
alisation laws need revising, and all aliens
in tbis country should be sent oat of it ae

Dasth of a Journalist.
We copy the following from the Wil
liamsport, Pa., Gazette and Bulletin of
March 30:
Among the victims of la grippe in Pitts
burg is Nelson P. Reed, the widely known
bead of the firm owning and publishing the
Commercial-Gazette of that city. The
death of this genial and prominent journal
ist is a heavy loss not only to the city of
Pittsburg but to journalism throughout the
country. Mr. Reed was a man of such
strong individuality that he was sure to
bare been recognised in whatever place or
pursuit he may hare been found. He was
distinctively a self-made man, but while he_
rose to prominence and influejyi»---rtTfough
bis stability and energy -ef~character, he
had the ant age of having a
worthy lineage. His father, the venerable
Majot George W. Reed, of Butler, trans
mitted to his offspring qualities which
proved of great service to them in their
lines. Another of the eons gave promise
of a brilliant career, which career, however,
was abruptly ended when the brave young
life was given to the cause of the country
through mortal wounds received on the ill
fatedfield of Fredericksburg. The mother
of these sons was a lady of great beauty
and sweetness of spirits, as well as intelli
gence and refinement There is something
in heredity, whatever may be argued to
the contrary. While N. P. Reed did not
reoeive special educational training in bis
youth, be received a thorough mechanical
training, under the immediate eye of his
father, and the valuable discipline then ob
tained doubtless had something to do with
the self-reliance and methodical habits
which characterised the suocessful journal
ist throughout his whole life. Not only
1 did be afford another conspicuous example
of a young man going from a country vil
lage and achieving great material success
in a large city, but ne also demonstrated
the possibility of a young man, thoroughly
grounded in his moral nature by ennobling
home influences, remaining steadfast in
this respect through a busy public life.
Without original experience in printing
offices, Mr. Roed embarked in the news
paper publishing business, and became
thorough master not only of the business
and mechanical departments of a vast
newspaper enterprise, but was successfully
managing the editorial work upon his
Samel at the time of bia death. While, as
ifore stated, be had the qualities to at
tract attention in almost any line of effort,
he seemed to be entirely adapted to his
chosen field of journalism, as his signal
success attested.
Although be has been called/upon to
cross the line between "visibility and in
visibility" while yet in tbe prime of vigor
OUR manhood, be was permitted to prove
himself a man while in the world and to
make many other meu feel grateful that
they were permitted to call him friend
while he lived.
"Ten Nights in a Bar-room" at Jacks
A very successful entertainment *a*
given by the young people of Jack*vi!le
•ad vicinity, in the town-hall. Wednesday
and Thursday evenings, March 25 and 26.
The well-known drama, "Ten Nigliu in a
Bar-room," was rendered each evening.
The characters were well chosen, each
being well suited to hi* part. J. M.
Moore, who acted the part of 'Sample
Switch el,' though not a natural Intra Yan
kee, is not to be beat. His readiness at
"binding the bargain" showed him to be
no inexperienoed band and the apparent
plea*are with which he accomplished it
made a deep impression upon Mr. Komaine,
"the philanthropist," who seemed to look
upon the Taakee as a usurper.
J. D. Humphrey it not a pretty fellow at
beet, bat ae 'Simon Blade' his very appear
ance took down the house. S. S. Gard
ner deserve* great credit for the manner in
which he performed 'Joe Morgan;' W. 0.
Book ae 'Prank Blade* showed himself
worthy of bis aire; Harry Green' was im
personated by E. C. Miller who acted the
villain's part so well that the audience bad
no sympathy tor him when be received a
genuine bump on the bead; J. W. Hum
phrey impersonated 'Mr. Romaine,' and
'Willie Hammond' was very well repre
sented by W. E. More; Nellie Sinclair as
'Mary Morgan' is worthy of special men
tion: Venetta Moore represented 'Mrs.
Blade,' Mary Humphrey 'Mre. Morgan,'
•ad Florence Pisoi 'Mehitable Cartwright,'
and of these we have only to say that their
acting waa excellent. The worthy in
dividual who wanted a reserved seat for
fifteen cents is also deserving of ewpecial
mention. The entertainment was given
for the purpose of cultivating temperance
j sentiment, and repairing the town-hall, in
I which this man waa a principal stock
holder. The bouse waa crowded on both
evenings and the players have already
been requested to repeat the play next fall.
After each practical recommendations
further praiae on oar part would be snper
luoua. Suffice it to any that no entertain
ment at thia place for many years has been
•o entirely aaccesefal. Although the writer
was not personally interested in the play,
he feels that he would be neglectful or his
duty, did he remain silent concerning this
enjoyable ooeaeion. T. K. UTHKCL.

Pleasant Hill School.
Ed. Citiibx:—A* there is always space
open in jour esteemed paper for common
school news, or, in fact, any other good
and wholesome news, 1 feel at liberty to
•end you a few facts concerning the above
iramed school, and especially of the last
month and last day of the term. The
school began very promisingly on Monday,
Sept. 22, I*9o. and closed very happily and
peacefully on Wednesday. March 18. 1391.
The ptr cant of attendance for the term is
90, which, owing to the inclement weather,
the distauce many have to go, and the
number of small scholars is very gratify
ing indeed. During the closing month,
Henrv Barkley. Eddie Millison, Charlie
Stewlrt. Budd Garvey, Curtis and John
White, Clara Gallaher, Mintio and Ada
White. Annie Barkley, Clare Stewart,
Marv. Eva and Maggie, and Sue Uaworlh
misled no days.
In the same months we were pleaded to
have visits from Sapt. McColloueh. l);reo
tor White, Mrs. tt'm. Garvey, Misses
Lizzie Barklev and Cora White. We were
very much pleased and encouraged by the
remarks and words of good cheer they gave
us, and especially by the fine, earnest and
sensible speech made by the superinten
dent, who promised to come back next
winter and bring his wife along with him.
(Bona fide.)
In honor of the man who was "first in
war, first in peace, and first in the hearts
of his countrvmen." the larger boys had
a flag-raising on Friday before the 22nd
of February. A fine symmetrical pole 40
feet long, with the "Stars and Stripes"
fastened to it, was raised over the school
house, and then aud there, the old mansion
was dedicated to the cause of education,
eqnaiity, conformity to law, and justice
f..r all. After three rousing cheers for
George Washington, annexation, pay-for
your-coinage, the elections bill, the cloture
rule, and reciprocity, the boys were so
enthused with patriotism that Jack White
and Hosea Gnllaber were willing to make
in which they would
hase+wTOcfluje Rri'ish lion's tail to the
Toyanii of the American eagle;
and Curt ami .J •tin White were ready to
sing a duet, a:.d (iub Melvin and Charlie
Stewart could hardly keep from Dancing
"Jim Crow" to the tune of Yankee boodle;
aud if the Brazilian President, Fonseca.
hadn't acceded to the Plnmed Knight's
reciprocity scheme, there would have been
a declaration of war at once, and the boys
would have marched on the tree-dwellers
of the Amazon without further notice.
On tbe last Friday evening of the term,
the school had an old-fashioned "spelling
bee" and literary. The evening was very
cold and stormy, yet there was a comfort
able audience present, and the "beaux aud
belles" were there in all their glory. After
spelling a half hour, with Orpba Stewart as
victor, a short intermission was given for
the folks to make arrangements for the
remainder of the night, and it is said that
a goodly number took advantage of tbe
After recess, recitations, dialogues, and
readings were in order. They were very
well performed, and after the announce
ment: "There will be a picnic on the last
day and everybody is invited," the andience
quietly went to "their own homes or to
some other body's home.
This last day finally came. The day w..s
warm and bright, tbe only nice day in
March, and it really seem as if l'rovi
dence had interposed His authority in our
behalf, and had changed Hick's calendar
for a day at lea# People with well filled
baskets came from all directors There
were citisens, patrons, strangers whom wo
had never seen or heard of before. The
recitations went on until dinner time
arrived. After the preliminaries had been
performed, Mattie Garvey, Minnie Myers,
Orpha Stewart, and Maggie Garvey took
poH*essicn of a lot of as fine cakes aud pies
as we ever saw, and it wasn't long till the
cravings of the inner person were fully
•"stifled. The only incident happening dur
ing tbe feast was not a fata) but a provok
ing one. C. F. White, who had been diet
ing himself for a day or so in fond .'uitici
pation of the least, was abuu: ready to be
gin Kurk when bo discovered that the
platter was bare, not even a crumb on it.
A little detective work soon located I -
"# iinied" in Jim Mcßurney's pocket. It
will always be a disputed question bow it
got there, at any rate Jim gave it back,
and Charlie is no worse of the disappoint
ment. Dinner being over, everybody
sauntered out to find .some amusement.
Tbe fathers and mothers g..t together and
talked over their school days; the girl*
formed in knots, aud discussed the good
qualities of their beaux and tic weather;
and the boy* hied to a field bard to a field
hard bv to have a game of base ball. Tbe
game was a good one, and the plays made
by Boyd Garvey, Pierce Flinner. Oscar
Sbanor and others will recommend them
to Detroit or Chicago next year.
Having tired of play, every one natural
ly concentrated at the scbool house, where
tne bell of authority soon brought quiet
ness. Speech-making and singing were
then in order. Several of the citizens
spoke very entbusiasticaly about the
social benefits derived from spendiug a day
together, now aud then, aud all were of
the opinion that the teacher and scholars
bad had a very profitable and pleasant
time during the term, and that it was not
necessary for a fow interested manipulators
to be calling the public's attention to the
fact on all possible occasions to make it
appear so, whether it'was so or not. By
request, Mrs. Robert Wallace was called
on a for a solo. It is not at all necessary
to say it was sung with the ability of a
Patti, for it recommended itself.
Tbe teacher, after thanking the patroqs
for their hearty co-operation and support,
which are absolutely essential at all times,
if the school is to be successful; the
scholars for their respect and obedience,
and the directors for their suggestions and
visits, declared the school adjourned with
out day. 0- P. W., Teacher.

yard for the different grades. We are in position to, and are selling
them at our former low prices. Please remember this, and also that we

New Ingrain - - - - 25 cents.
Better Ingrain - - - - 35 cents.
