The county officers who have been in
office the past three years will retire
Monday morning and be succeeded by
those chosen at the last election. This
county has seldom if ever been more for
tunate in their public servants than dur
ingjfhe term now expinng. Sheriff DEAN,
though quite prominent and very popu
lar in the west was but little known out
side of that section when he came here
three years ago, but he now returns to
Ins home in South Creek, not only one
of the most widely known gentlemen
in the county, but the most popular man
who has ever filled the sheriff's office,
lie has so discharged the onerous and re
sponsible duties of Hie office as not to
unnecessarily oppress or annoy the un
fortunate debtor, while acting with strict
fidelity to plaintiffs. "A little brief au
tho'ity ' did not "puff him up," and he
remains the same affable, unassuming,
com teous gentleman lie was born. His
friends are not eonfl ied to ilic Republi
can party, though lie is as true as steal
to his principles. While Mr. DEAN, li re
a sensible gentleman, as he is, retires to
his farm again, we shall be greatly mis
taken if his fellow citizens do not soon
call him into public life.
Protiionotarv PLACEMAN is his own
successor, and the choice could not have
been bettered. It is a noteworthy fact
that Brad foul County has been particu
larly fortunate in the selection of pro
thonotaries,never having had a poor one.
Put Mr. PLACEMAN is the peer of any of
his predecessors as an officer, while lie
excels in those traits which make a man
justly popular with his fellows. His
heart is large and beats in sympathy with
his less fortunate brethren who are always
received with the same cordiality as
those upon whom fortune smiles. The
duties of the office have been promptly,
faithfully and pleasantly performed, leav
# ing no ground for fault-Uudiug on the
part of any one having business to trans
A. C. Fitisnin, Register and Recorder,
gives place to lion. J. 11. Wisnn, the un
written law of the Republican party hav
ing decreed that rc-nominations for this
office must not be made. lie goes out of
office with the confidence and best wishes
of all who have made his acquaintance.
Himself and son, Mr. CLAYTON Fmsmu,
have done the work of the office during
his term and the records have never been
more neatly kept, nor the duties of the
office discharged more satisfactorily than
during his administiation.
The constitution bars the County
Treasurer from serving two consecutive
terms, and Mr. JOHN 11. Git ANT retires
after three years incumbency, during
which a larger amount of money has been
received and paid out than in any other
similar peiiod since the organization of
tlie county, and we may truthfully say
the interests of tax-payers have never
been more carefully guarded nor the 11-
nances more prudently managed. It be
came necessary to make a loan to raise
money to erect the poor house and it was
la 1 gely due to Mr. GRANT'S efforts that
the bonds were negotiated at a very low
rate of inteiest, in the face of strong
temptations to allow his frieuds to take
the nat a higher rate. In this trausac
t'ou the county saved more than his sala
ry. lie superintended the payments for
the ,'o kou the poor house in person
and aided the Commissioners very great
ly iu the prosecution of the work. lie
deserves great credit for the practical
interest displayed iu securing to the
county a house for the poor which will
grow in favor as its usefulness becomes
better known to the public. Among
those whom coining generations will
thank tor this noble institution Mr.
GRANT will stand piomincnt and his name
ys an upright, prudent and faithful cus
todian of the county funds will long re
main to do honor to his memory.
The County Commissioners, Messrs.
Pi; ADIOI; i>, lli nsT and HANSOM have
served during a period of unusual inter
est to the tax-payers, large sums of mon
ey having been expended and much ex
traordinary work required. That the
board faithfully discharged its work is
ev'dent in the re-election of two of them
—the oihei, Mr. HURST, declining the
honor of a re-nomination. They have
done well for the county and deserve the
endorser.tent they have received.
What we have said in regaid to the
Commissioneis will apply to the County
Audiio's, Messrs WKLI.ES, PRATT and
MOODY, two of whom have been elected
for another term.
Ex Senator Coukling has the reputation
of uttering bitterer satire than any of
our public men, says the Chicago Inter-
Orcoti, but it is certainly the fact none
of them can shape a compliment more
gracefully. Once when he was making a
speech in the Senate he repeatedly turn
ed his eves upon Senator Thr.nnan was a
little nettled, and asked : '\V hen the
Senator fiom New York turns and
addresses his remarks to me, does he ex
pect me to respond?" "When I speak of

This remedy is something new, both as to name
and composition. This is one of the wonders of the
world. This Syrup, I claim, is better and more
effective than any other ever offered to the ople of
America or any other country, and what 1 say of
this 1 can prove, This Syrup, like the Pills, is
harmless and safe. It contains no opium or other
narcotic poison, like the most Syrup, and is not dis
agreeable to take. Any child will take it. And it
will cure any and all inflammations arising from
Cold. It is superior to all others in every respect
and especially for the following reasons :
Ist- It will cure Croup every time.
2d. It will cure Inflammation of the Lungs.
3d. It will cure Quinsy.
4th It will cure Whooping Cough.
sth It will cure Bronchitis.
6th It will cure Hoarseness.
7th It will cure Sore Throat.
Bth It will cure any Cold.
9th It will cure Congestion of 'he Lungs.
10th It will cure any Cough.
11th It will cure Scarlet Fever.
12th. It is the best romed" that anv one can take
for Consumption, and if taken in the first stage I
will guarantee a cure.
13th. It is perfectly safe for all ages as there is
nothing in its composition that can harm a child.
