Rev. E. Ritchie, pastor of one of the local cole rod churcnes, was found dead near the K. C. railroad Sunday morning. He had been ill for several days and some parties had staid up with him. He left the house about four o'clock, and not returning a search was made, his dead body being found as stated above. Coroner Green- leaf held an inquest, the jury deciding that death was caused by heart dih- ease. A large concourse ot eoioreo. people attended the funeral Tuesday afternoon. three-month- s' i- lturglars. Burglars entered the residence of Mrs. Margaret Gill Wednesday night, by prizing open a shutter. The house was completely ransacked, bureau drawsers broken open and everything torn up, generallj, though a small amount of money and owo rings is all that has been missed. The table in the dining room showed that the thieves also partook" of a good lunch. The residence of W. B. Mason was al so entered. "Kegs" clothes were taken from near his bed and the pockets gone through. Fortunately he had left no money in them, but his hand some goia watch was taken. The clothes were taken into a front room tnd a lamp lighted which the parties left burning. As usual, there is no clew to the dar ing work.

It was reported on Wednesday that the County Judge's office was vacant because Circuit Clerk Hamilton, refus ed to accept Judge R. A. Burnsides' bond, on the ground that it was offered too late, the statute requiring it to be made on the first Monday 'in Janu ary. The report created quite a sensation and the p .rties mentioned and county attorney Owsley, went to Stan ford to con'er with Judge Saufley. We understand that he advised the clerk to accept the bond if the parties sign ing it were good, and there was no question about that. The bond had been signed several days and the Judge had neglected to offer it to the clerk. It is said that Judge Saufley said that there is a conflict between the constitution and the law requiring the bond to be made on the first Monday; that no one could declare the office vacant without proper legal proceed ings, in which the question would be involved, and that he could hold un der his old bond until another had been given. Whether or not we have been correctly informed pn these opin ions, be is still county judge and is likely to remain so unless a vacancy occurs by death or resignation. All sorts of rumors were afloat the breez es ran high, but the storm has subsi ded and a calm prevails over the troubled waters. We do not object to the use of all proper means to secure an election, by either party, but we do doubt the propriety of removing men', who have been elected and qualified, on mere technicalities. It is true that the bond should have been 'filed sooner, but it does not seem that this alone should disqualify the officer, as, we learn, the higher courts have decided. We do not blame the young cleric for seeking information on the subject ajlffllNSpAMCE SPRINGFIELD FIRE AND MARINE INSURANCE COMPANY. EQUITABLE LIFE INSURANCE OP NEW YORK.

To remedy - that from zrw of land in Jefi 6,000 to 12,-o- week's holidays, I shall endeavor to chronicle a few of the Hoosier hap- ponmgs. I have thought several times I would inform you of mv sur roundings but my school duties and institute work keep me quite busy. We have an institute in each township one Saturday in each month. At these institutes we discuss our reading circle work and one or more branches of school work as to both the objective method of them; also we discuss musju eaeh time, since it has a pluqe in our school course. Our reading oirolo work this year is "Plato" and "Teaching Language Arts.'" Be sides these institutes we have our y institute which was held in September at the Connty seat. This year we were addressed during the en tire week by Prof. A'ey of the State University and by Vrot Pettger, of the gtate Normal, the one a mathema-- t eian and the other a scientist. It was a week well spent to listen to those able discourses. Not only do we have these institutes to enjoy; but also we have our County Teachers As sociation of two days in whiah the teachers discuss several subjects. We had this on Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving- - However smce both the County Institute and County As sociations are aver, tho most en joyable and beneficial object for the teachers now is tho Township Institute. From these rambling lines, you can infer some of the main differences in the school systems of the states on either side of the Ohio river. Not only do our schools differ, but also the climate hs presented an ap pearance for some weeks that is not very common to me. On the night of the lfith we had a heavy sleet which is not all gone yet. Many trees are bro ken and th orchards and forests look quite dilapidated besides it being dan gerous to walk. We have had several light snows and skating has been the order of the day for some weeks. Last Friday being Xmas Eve Santa Claus paid our school a visit and the brightness of the pupil's faces expressed the joy of their hearts; but the brightness was more enhanced when I announced that wo were to have a week's holidays. Since my vacation is too short to make a visit home, I am having quite an enjoyable time at my Grand Father and Grand Mother McCarty's near Cloverdale.
