The heavy winds and blinding dust were almost sullbcating on Monday and yesterday, but a good shower last night left everything lovely this morning, and wo have the promise of one of the finest days imaginable, as we go to press. AA'e have, lived a whole week since election, and everybody seems to eon- liiuie “about as usual, thank you.” AVe, of tlic rural districts have the consola­ tion of knowing that we shall be .among the last to be lacerated by llie claws of “ the tiger.” A Lunch Social will be held at the home of Airs.

Our citizens should see that the proprietor of Johnson Opera house should not be a loser in his efforts to give them an entertainuiet of high character. Some miscre.ant, between AA'ednesday and Saturday of last week, broke in one ot the expensive and beautiful stained glass windows, on the southwest side of the Presbyteri.an church. No possible motive can be imagined for such dia­ bolical work, and if the culprit is caught he ought to be treated to a good dose of his own kind of pelting. A glance at the election returns of this county, will satisfy any honest man as to who are bolters and traitors in the Republican party, and traffic in tickets and candidates. The average Demo cratic majority' on .State candidates, w.as not to exceed oOO, while the majority against our Republican county candi- (jates for Sheriff and Alember of Assem­ bly, was 312 and 1006, respectively. Who did i t ) Roselle Russell, at his farm on the Alountain ro.ad, some three miles north of the village, had twenty-three sheep killed or badly injured by dogs, hast Saturday night. Appn-aisers assessed the damages at $ 40 . This is the second loss of the kind he has suffered within the year, the whole damages amounting to .$84. AVe are informed that there is as yet no clue to the destructive dogs, and further losses may be expected in that vicinity, as sheep-killing dogs rarely give up their vicious practice. The Board of Supervisors is a tie in Cayuga county, as between the old i>ar- ties, being 16 Republicans and 10 Dem­ ocrats, with a solitary Prohibitionist, as the lone star in the constellation. He is from Summerhill, and may pre­ serve an equable temperature in the body. There has been some talk of compromise between the Democrats and Republicans by which the offices of chairman and clerk should be divided, • but from present indic.ations it is not I robable that such a result will be the The Democrats are intent upon steal­ ing the Legislature, and many of them make no bones of saying so. Their greed will overreach itself, and in w.ays too numerous to mention they will prove to the people that as a party they share the Tammany Tiger spirit of rapacity, and the result will be a grand Republi­ can victory next year. The AVoolen mills have already about twenty-five hands engaged in prepara­ tory work. The foremen for the vari­ ous departments are all engaged, and riipidly regulating for a thoraugh busi­ ness, which when fully established will require from 100 to 150 hands. Every­ body wishes for Air. Howard and his enterprise the highest measure of prosperity. AVe are assured that too much cannot be said of tlie merits of the Ovide Alusin Concert company which will be at Johnson Opera house next Saturday- night. Every one of the distinguished artists has received very high praise from the best papers and critics in the land. Let our people show that they can appreciate a really good thing when they are favored with such an op^nor- An entertainment of rare excellence AVill be that of the Alusin Concert com­ pany at Johnson O p era house, Saturday evening, Nov. 14. Its star Is Oviile Alusin the peer of any violinist living, and seldom h.as a star such support as is given by the solo artists who comprise Iiis company. AVe do not hesitate to guarantee tlie Alusin Concert company in every- respect. Every one should hear them. Fred Teller proposes another liberal scheme f o r his customers. Commenc- iiig on the 11th inst., to-clay., he will give to each purchaser of a rocking chair, a nicely bound Book. Those souvenir presents will be dtstributod for the following week. The books are carefully selected, and the purchas­ er can choose from a large collection. It is an extra inducement, and a multi­ tude should taae advantage of this lib­ eral oU’er.

It is no wonder that their stomachs are weakening under such taffy as he has been feeding them on for some time. Perhaps they are really entitled to his last pat on the back, in the comjdiment of having done the best that they- could, “under the eireuiu- stanees,\ for there is no disputing the f:ict, that their cireumstanecs could hardly have been worse. But it really: seems as if they- ought by this time to have a little manly strength and judg­ ment of tlieir own. The Syracuse Ikrald intimates tliat Andrews is trying to imlo:ul the stigma ot all the crooked things criticised by- Judge Adams upon Alongin. This may be true, for boss Andrews is by no means a dullard, and can see how fat.al this record is likely to be to his asi)ir.a- tions for the post olfice. Fortunately the evidence of his full co-operation with Mongin in the schemes so scath- ingly rebuked by the Judge, is so ap­ parent as to require no proof, and it does not seem within the range of the probabilities that such a man could secure a responsible Federal olfice in a virtuous and intelligent community.— Waterloo Observer. Everybody has to indulge in a broad grin when they- road the Courier's e.x- plan:ition of the heavy- majorities in this county against Pollard and Cassidy, the Republican nominees for Assembly and Sheriff, whose names that piratical or­ gan was compelled by the dooi.sion of the Supreme Court to put up as the reg­ ular Repubiic.an c.andid.ates in place of bogus ones before hoisted at the head of its columns, 'i’he Courier picture is really transixorting. Imagine the avid­ ity with which its editor and his satel­ lites rushed to the support of Pollard, while Patterson, after his desperate effort to secure Pollard’s nomination and endorsement by the Supreme Court, was spending his money lavishly in buying Democratic votes to defeat the very man whom the Courier in another par.agrapli calls “ Afs (Patterson’s) can­ didate for Alember of Assembly.” Isn’t it funny-, though ? It was a bitter pill for the boss to give clear away on his Opera House ticket, and put up the nominations made by the Pattersonites. According to the boss’s axiom, however, it was good pol­ itics. The election figures will proba­ bly show that it was a dead give away. — AA'atorloo Observer. And here are “ the election figures” that show the correctness of the Observ­ er's prediction: Flower’s majority over. Fassett in this county was 180; Shee­ han's over A^rooman 471. Those may­ be fairly- taken as fixing the legitimate Democratic majority. Now look at the county ticket: Kinue (Dom.) over Pol­ lard (Rep.) for Assembly, 1006; A*an Cleef, (Dem.) over Cassidy, (Rep.) for Sheriff’, 942. Pollard and Cassidy were what the Observer styles “ nominations made by the Pattersonites,” and “p«< wp” by-“ the boss” under piratical pro­ test. Now, candid reader, where did the 520 excess over Flower’s Demo­ cratic majority, come from in case of Pollard? “The boss” better indite another homily on “bolters.” AA”e have never made cheapness an inducement to customers, believing that the best class of trade prefer artis­ tic excejienco at reasonable prices, though m tb^ end, the best is cheapest.

The Board of Supervisors met in annual session at Waterloo on Alonday last, and consisted of five Republican and five Democratic members. Some mutual agreement was evidently neces­ sary in the selection of chairman and clerk, to effect an organization. The chairmanship seems to have been conceded to the Republicans, and of course the Democrats were entitled to the clerk, and they Avere united from the s tart upon Benjam in Franklin, E sq., of Ovid, the last and efficient incumbent.

Hampton, who, it is safe to say, will diseliarge the Unties of the position to the perfect s:it- isfaction of everybody.

The Courier editor is “ inflamed, exas­ perated, outraged, irritated” and almost “ absolutely overwhelmed” by the jmb- lication and circulation of what he calls that “ inflamatory document,” Judge Adams’ Decision, a squelching mandate of comlemnation of his piratical and di­ abolical methods in political (mis) raan- agoinent. AA'itli eliaracteristlo modesty, said editor claims credit for groat for­ bearance tliat lie (lid not “ discuss that remarkable decision last week,” and thereby “ irritate Republicans and thus injure the vote of the whole Republican ticket.” AVell, we arc not at all sure but the iioint is well taken, for it is pretty evident, from the late trend of political m.atters in this locality, that Ills Aluiichausen style of discussion drives away ten times as many- votes as it attracts to the Republican party-. On tlic whole it is probably a good thing that he postponed knocking the Judge into .Smithereens until after election. Certainly, nobody wants any worse showing than he has helped us to now, with all his magnanimous forbearance. But somebody ought to notify the Judge SO tliat he eaii got out of the country, or into /.suitable fortiliealions, somewliere, wliere his speedy and to­ tal annihilation by Sir Bombastes Fu- rioso will not make disconsolate mourn­ ers of a groat many who seem to regard the Judge as a man of .«ome ability- as well as inlegrity.

The Courier editor is absolutely crazy, or at the least, is very foolishly- pre­ sumptions. Tile idea of his setting up Ids Ebonezer against Judge Adams, and shooting his puny- pop guns at tlie Su­ preme Court. He may be brought to realize that although his outrageous libelling of prominent persons in Seneca county- lias been thus far tolerated, it w-ill not do to assume that outsiders will humot his lunacy, from feelings of scorn He is trenching on dangerous gi-ound, to himself, when he underhikes to play- the bully, or c.ast dishonorable slurs at those in authority, and who hold their positions and functions too sacred to submit to the slanderous aspersions of blackguards and blatlierskites, even though the oll’ender may be of unbal­ anced mind. -V man of any- sense will ro.alize that when lie has reached about tlie end of his rope, he had better go slow.

The recent announcement by the New York Central management of the inaug­ uration of a regular mile-a-minute ser­ vice between New York and Buffalo was received at first with incredulity. AVhile the public has become accus­ tomed to widely heralded accounts of occasional bursts of speed of one or perhaps ten or twenty miles duration, that such an astounding rate of speed could be sustained for a distance of over four hundred miles has hitherto been regarded as impossible. That the goal of its accomifiishment has been finally attained does not, however, signify- that mile-a-miiiute trains will straightway become fashionable on all railroads. It simply- demonstrates the superior excel­ lence of tlie New York Central system, which enjoys unrivalled physical features and probably yiossesses the finest e(iuip- ment of rolling stoek and engines of any- railroad in the United States. The new train is called the “ Empire State Express,” and consists of one oom- bination butt’et smoking and library car, one AA'agner Palace drawing-room car and two New York Central coaches, all vestibuled. It leaves Grand Central Station, New York, every day except Sundays, at 9 a . m ., and arrives at IBuflalo at 5:40 r . ar., making the run in eight hours and forty minutes, or 52 1 3 miles per hour actual running In addition to its other great features, “ A merica’s G reatest Railroad” w ill hereafter have the prestige of running the fastest train in the w o rld. $G.OO, K e w Y o r l c , $e.O O .
