This newspaper was found under the flooring of the J.D. Ball home near Toluca when the home was recently demolished to build a new home for the present owners, Gaylord and Marcia Schmillen.  Unfortunately the existance of this paper and others were discovered too late to save it intact.  I will attempt to record as much of the paper as possible "as written "(including typos).  I want to thank Ken, Gaylord and Marcia Schmillen for letting me borrow this paper to record.

  A temperance caucus was held in the G.A.R. Hall last Saturday evening and Moses Hartley in the 1st, G. M. Lock in the 2rd, and W.E. Bush in the 3rd ward nominated for aldermen. A motion to head the tickets "Temperance Ticket" was after some discussion carried, a collection was taken up to pay for printing tickets.
  The property of Mrs. Delany on 2nd street was sold by constable Fahey, of Peoria, under the direction of the adminstrator, Thos. O'Brien, on last Tuesday.  It was bought by Lewis V.

    "Rudolph, the Cripple," was given in New Opera Hall Saturday evening by the author, Don C. Hall, assisted by some of our ameteurs. The drama is of intense interest through-out, and as the leading parts are finely rendered by Mr. Hall, his wife and Mr. John W. Goodwin, the play is first class in every respect, the interest in the characters is kept up entirely through the play, and it is with a feeling of regret that we see the curtain drop on the last act.

J. Watercott & Co.

  The Imperial Saxophone Quartette, from which C. F. Shaw has withdrawn, has been reorganized and Mr. C. H. Ferguson and his six year old son, the wonderful boy drummer, have taken his place. The other member of the Quartette have been fortunate in securing the services of Mr. Ferguson, as he is an accomplished musician, and since joining the Quartette has been putting the boys through a thorough course of musical instruction, from which they have deprived much benefit. The Quartette propose giving another entertainment before leaving Henry.
  The city election Tuesday passed off quietly, the only interest being in the ticket put out by the W.C.T.U. for aldermen not in favor of granting license.  It did not create much excitement, as it came into the field so late, though the ladies worked nobly at the polls all day.  The vote was; 1st ward total 123; Paskell 110, Hartley, temperance, 11;  2rd. ward, total 91; McDonough 70, Lock, temperance, 21; 3rd ward, total 99; Moss 76, Bush, temperance, 21.  The vote is not a fair measure of the temperance sentiment of Henry, but it shows that the ladies are not up to the tricks of the politicians.
  The taste displayed by those who have charge of the millinery department of J. Watercott & Co.'s store by the various combination of bright colored ribbons and feathers, approaches closely to the marvelous. The showcases show a judicious blending and multiplication of colors the effects of which can only be likened to phantasms of the kaleidoscope.  That they can keep up the beauty of the display, when so many hats with their respective trimmings go out every day, is not the least of the wonder. The stock they have to draw for must have been immense, for since Easter it would seem as thoufh they had been sold by the dozens.
  T. W. Stoner has purchased from N. Massion, of Minonk, a celebrated importer of Belgian horses, Brilliant, one of the best of his numerous stud.  This horse, which is four years old this spring, is a gem of the first water, a deep mahogany bay, with smooth strong limbs and body, showing immense power and endurance.  The Belgian horse has been introduced into this country lately, but wherever known he soon becomes the favorite, for he shows the good points of the Shire, Percheron and Norman without their defects. Those who are raising horses for market should become familiar with the Belgian, Brilliant can be seen at the stable of J. W. Thomas(..?..)Henry, Fridays and Saturdays; the remainder of the week he will be at home.
  A serious accident occured in Sparland last Friday which enshrouded the whole town in gloom.  Mrs. Geo. Tarbill was going west across the rail road track at the main crossing in the south part of the town, when a freight train coming up from the south, struck her in the back and tossed her high in the air and she fell about 30 feet from where she was struck by the engine.  She was taken up by kind hands and taken home insensible and has remained in a nearby unconcious condition ever since.  Her recovery is very doubtful.  Just how an intelligent energetic woman like Mrs. Tarbil, who all her life has lived near a rail road, should be so overtaken is a mystery.  Her husband died about a year ago, and her two children are nearly grown.  Later: - We hear that she is improving somewhat.

Sawed to Death

Bert Crawford met death in a horrible way Saturday. He is a young man who was working for Ben Matteson, helping him operate a steam saw with which cord wood is being sawed into stove wood. He was removing the last stick for the day when the saw still buzzing, swung loose striking him in the face and severing it nearly in twain.  His death occured almost immediately.  What makes the terrible death doubly sad is the fact that he was the only support of a widowed mother. A steam saw is a dangerous fellow workmen. --[Galesburg Visitor,

Column 4

      Geo. Ball, whose growing business demanded larger and better quarters, less than a year ago he put up a building in the rear of his store with an oven attached, which had all the modern improvements, but after the oven was built the props were removed too soon and the arch collapsed.  It was rebuilt, but something being wrong Monday he went to Peoria and engaged an expert oven builder to take it down and rebuild it right, and with a first class baker and his new oven he will be prepared to furnish anything in the bakery line equal to anybody.
     The funeral of T. Q. Hiltebrand was largely attended, Masonic bretheren from Lacon, Sparland, Chillicothe, Putnam and Magnolia being in attendance.  The Masons numbers some 60 in all, the Grand Army was represented by about 25 comrades in line.  Rev. Mr. Ayling, a member of both orders, spoke feelingly of the deceased and extolled the virtues inculcated by the rituals of both orders and by the lessons the dead brother and comrade had been taught in the lodge rooms,  The exercises which were conducted by the Masons were very impressive, and were concluded by the comrades of Post 94 marching around the grave and depositing upon the breast of their comrade a sprig of evergreen, the symbol of immortality; then at the command of Commander Locke the entire post gave the "salute to the dead," which is made by placing the left hand upon the heart and raising the hat with the right.  The benediction was then pronounced by Chaplain Ayling, and the dead was laid away to await the call at the last great day.

A Few Word About Henry

Henry is situated on the west bank of the Illinois river, on a bold bank that is some 40 feet above high water mark.  The land upon which it stands is an immense gravel bed extending downward more than 100 feet, ensuring a perfect drainage and a perfectly healty location.  Upon this gravel is a black sandy loam from three to four feet in depth, making one of the finest and fertile soils for gardening purposes that can be found anywhere, in fact the land combines all the good points of sand and gravel in regard to drainage etc. with the fertile, plant producing properties of the more clayey prairies, and is unsurpassed in Illinois as a place for a home.  In no place are better facilities for fine gardens aned lawns, in no place can drier, cleaner streets and alleys be found.  Mud as it is found in all the prairie towns is unknown here, and a few days at the utmost dries up the wet, water never stands upon the ground here, our perfect drainage takes the worse rains off in a few hours.
     Henry has four Protestant and two Catholic churches, two school houses, one high school and a catholic parochial school, a public library and a fine park with an artesian well flowing about a hundred gallons a minute, also a fine wagon bridge across the Illinois river costing $81,000.
     It is but two miles from Senachwine lake, and only five from the Undercliff, which is fast getting to be one of the most famous summer resorts in the west.
     The river and lake afford excellent fishing in the summer and the lands adjacent furnish one of the most noted hunting grounds in Illinois.
     The merchants of Henry are celebrated throughout the country for their enterprise, and many come here to trade for 20, 30 and even 50 miles from the surrounding country and towns.  Our people are social and hospitable, and any one looking for a place for a home will do well to look over the advantages offered by Henry.

     The constructer of the La Salle Electric railway will begin about the middle of this month.  J. M. Welch has the contract for furnishing the ties which will alone require form 50 to 60 car loads.  Other contracts for rails, engines and supplies have also been made and it looks as though the project will be completed this year, giving La Salle one of its very greatest drawing cards in the march of enterprise. -- [Democrat Press

     The Bureau Gossip of the Tiskilwa Chief says:  "Iret Long was out on the street for an hour, alone -- the first time since he was hurt last October, six months ago."

   Gov. Fifer has appointed Friday, April 18, as Arbor day.
  The village board of Roanoke have passed an ordinance to stop plowing and farming the streets of the village.
  A young cyclone crossed the river a half mile below town Tuesday evening. Those who saw say it was a fury while it lasted.  it carried water from the river to a height of 30 feet. -- [Putnam Record.
  Christopher Olbert, an engineer on the Santa Fe road, was instantly killed at Chillicothe last Thursday.  He was standing on the track when a backing engine knocked him down, witn his neck across tne rail, and his head was severed from the body.  He was not otherwise cut or bruised.
  Through the courtesy of the Chesborough Manufacturing company we have received a number of extremely neat vest pocket calenders which we shall be glad to present to any of our friends who may call upon us.  The Chesborough Manufacturing company make a number of very excellent remedial agents of which Vaseline is the principal ingredient.
  The early calling of the Woodford county Democratic Convention has brought out candidates for the county offices as thick as bees in the early spring. There are three candidates for the office of sheriff, one for county clerk, four for treasurer, two for county judge, and two for superintendent of schools, all subject to the decision of the Democratic Convention.
   Why not? An effort is to be made to have the Great Bend Reunion held in Hennepin this year. About all the towns in the district have had the reunion except Hennepin, and we see no plausable reason why it should not be held here this year. The fair grounds will be as nice a place for the encampment as can be found any place, being nicely situated, handy to water and plenty near the town. We trust the post here will use its influence to have the reunion held here this year, and Hennepin will do her best to make it a success in every particular. --[Putnam Record.
  The people of Spring Valley are torn up over the post office, a petition is being circulated to displace the present postmaster, Mr. C. J. Devlin.  The plea is that Mr. Devlin is away too much, and leaves the office in charge of two ladies, who are nearer democrats than they are republicans. The Spring Valley Sentinel says: The only basis on which this rests is the fact that the father of the young ladies, the late Thomas Terry, was a democrat during his life; but what political preferences, if any, the aforesaid young ladies entertain is unknown to us. At any rate they could by no possible means be styled "offensive partizans." We were pleased when the present arrangement was made, because we knew the public would be well served by the young ladies who were to have active charge of it. We have never had occasion to be displeased over the arrangement since and are well satisfied with it now. The location and appointments of the office are first class, and taken as a whole we have every reason to be proud of it.

A Dash for Liberty.

     William Coates, confined in the Stark county jail, jumped the confines last Saturday morning.  Jailor H. W. Newland was standing guard while his son Jim was gone after a pail of coal, the prisoner feigning sleep, but in a moment of time, with the agility of a deer, he sprang against Mr. Newland, knocked him over and scud.  Jailor Newland was on his feet in a moment and sent a club after the fleeing prisoner, which took effect but did not retard his progress.  About this time Jim took in the situation, and the race for life began.  At times the prisoner was overhauled, but being large and muscular would get loose, and so over hill and through valley, bush and bramble, a circuit of about three miles was made, when Jim got the advantage and collaring the fugitive gave an exhibition of catch-as-you please that astonished him, and not-withstanding his threats to kill, hung on like a leech, wholly un-armed except with muscle and grit, until help came and the prisoner was secured. --[Toulon Sentinel.
