There is considerable excitement inN

We hope the matter will be adjusted

We have been asked several times
latelv why we did not publish certain
scandalous reports that are Coating
around on the "Vox populi." This pa
per tloes not propose to be a scavenger
that runs after the filth and scum of
the town for the purpose of keeping
up strife and bickering among our fel
low citizeus. We have a higher am
bition than to play the part of carrion
crow by repeating iu the press e.ery
little dirty tale that we happen to hear
on the street, besides we think tot)
iRuc'iJof our town and neighbors to be
holding ud to public gaze tl fhort
cumings of others. We have a sover
eign contempt for t'.;e yelping hound
that is always barking on -the track of
some one, whether it be the public or
private walks of life.

I will be one of ten to buy a square
in the towa of Lebanon for a new
school house, and I will also be ene of
twenty to put up a five thousand dol

we want to keep paee with other
towns. A Taxpayer.
We hope a few more of such as
"Taxpayer" will come to the front.
If Lebanon wants to get on a boom she
must have a finst-elass graded echoed
jut such a public school as other
towns. People are serkiug and will
have ths very bet educational advan
tages tor their children, and they are
going to move to that town that is on
the grow, and that town will grow
that has a first-class graded school.

Gravcjrnrd In Town.
Mr. editor: ill 5-eu allow us
space in your valuable paper to enter a
protest against the further enlargment
of the graveyard in the town of Leba
non. When the present burying place
was selected tnere was no thought of
the town reaching its present limit,
but now, with settlements all around
the old graveyard, and with a bright
prespectof rapid future growth, it
looks absurd for the trustees to try to
enlarge it right in town. Besides the
looks of the thing it is a din ct injury
to eeveral of us living on the north aud
east side of it. We hold that they
have no right thus to damage us and
our property in any such way, and if
the trustees persist in their efforts to
enlarge under our most solemn protest,
then we will ba compelled to try for
reeirees at the hands of the law. It is
a well known fai t here that there is an
j under current of water running north
and north-east all the time, thus com
pelling us to drink the water from
the decomposing bodies of the dead.
We sincerely hope that this matter
may be adjusted without recourse to
law, but if nothing but law will settle
it, then let it come.' Citizens.
Card of Thanks.
I hereby extend my most grateful
thanks to all the friends and neighbors
who, in my hour of sad affliction and
sore bereavement, so kindly sympa
thized with me, and so generously
aided me in my sad calamity. I shall
always remember your kindness with
a grateful heart.

They kick all blessed dayj

And kick when they do pray.
