cially commented upon, and the young

There is trouble brewing in the public
school, it seems between one of the
teachers, the principle and the school
board. It is to be hoped that the trouble
will be amicably settled at once.
A gang of rough characters, evidently
drank,”painted the town red” last night,
by tearing up steps, breaking down
fences, smashing up street lamps, etc.
The city officers are looking into the
matter, and if they are found out they
ought to be punished in such a way that
will forever stamp out such outrageous
conduct.
Hon. John Devor, who was the repub-
lican elector for the fourth district of
Ohio during the last campaign, is in the
city visiting his estimable wife, who has
been in the city during the past two
months for her health. Mr. Devor is
perfectly delighted with our little city,
and we hope tat he may conclude to
make it his permanent home.
