2747 - DTD June 25; ed:2/2 - "For more than a week past, all hereabouts, have been praying for rain, to lay this horrible dust, and give folks wishing to be cleanly a chance to be so, once more. But we are told by a friend, who we suppose may be weatherwise, since we know him to be otherwise, and who spoke as if speaking by authority, that we shall have no rain for eight or ten days. However, there is one alleviation; the weather since Tuesday (June 22) has not been uncomfortably warm, but rather the contrary.

P. S. "Happily, however, "otherwise" our informant (?) may have been, the result has shown that he was NOT "weatherwise,"...for, very soon after the foregoing had passed out of ours, into the printers hands, the Forest City was favored with a beautiful, albeit a somewhat homoeopathic, shower...."

2748 - DTD July 30:3/1 The weather yesterday was extremely hot. Many persons are preparing to leave for Mackinaw and Saut St. Marie.

2751 - DTD Jan. 5:3/1 - One of most important and at present the most
expensive of supplies needed for relief of the poor is fuel. F. R.
Elliott, A. Merchant, and F. A. Sterling have generously donated in all
some thirty cords of wood, which will be hauled to some secure and
central spot in the city, and from thence distributed to those in need.

We hope such others of our citizens as have wood or wood lots within few miles of city will increase this stock and will advise some member of the executive committee or B. Rouse how much they will donate.

The committee also earnestly requests donations of cast off clothing, for either sex, or bed clothing.

William Slade, jr., Chairman.

children in the asylum. The treasury is in a nearly exhausted state.

the citizens of Cleveland come to its aid?

The board of managers was re-elected for the coming year. On it are: John M. Woolsey, president; Mrs. Barney, secretary; T. P. Handy, Esq., treasurer.

2763 - DTD May 24; ed:2/4,5 - There will be a women's convention May 26 in Massillon, and, says our neighbor, everybody's wife will be there.

"We have many females, few women, and fewer wives. We hope the Convention will do something to transform the first into the second and the second into the last class of the fairer half of creation....

"We believe it is the great purpose of Conventions such as the one to be held at Massillon, to realize this greater equality between women and men,"

2765 - DTD June 1; ed:2/3 - "The PLAIN DEALER, measuring others by itself, fancies the communication we published, yesterday, from a correspondent, to have been given by us as a 'report' of the proceedings of the Massillon Women's Rights Convention. But that communication, instead of being, or professing to be, a report of those proceedings, was simply an exposure of the unreliableness of the PLAIN DEALER'S account of them, proving that account to be just such a caricature as we had ventured to proclaim it, from our personal knowledge of at least one of the speakers in that Convention...."

2766 - DTD June 3; ed: 2/2 - "The article, under the caption "Woman At Home" in last evening's HERALD, we found so inane, that, dreading the experiment of reading it all might cost us a psychological collapse, we read only part of it. If 'the tree is known by its fruit,' Washington's mother spent a hundred fold more time at balls, routs, and chit-chat

parties, than would have sufficed to deliver a thousand public lectures;
and we do not believe, that either the intellectual or moral character
of her son would have been less admirable, had she qualified herself to
write lectures that would be creditable to 'Emerson & Giles.' We think
it not unlikely, moreover, that Washington's father, and sundry other
circumstances, had something to do with making him the man he was.
And we question if the present heir apparent to the British Crown, will
have been anywise unfitted for that high honor, because his mother
makes speeches to the two Houses of Parliament."

2767 - DTD Aug. 12:3/1 We were favored with a call from Mrs. M. F. Anneke, editress of the German Ladies GAZETTE. She will give an address on the promotion of female education at Empire hall this evening. Ladies and gentlemen are invited.

2770 DTD Dec. 18; ed:2/2 The Hon. Horace Mann gave several lectures in Cleveland; one of which, "Woman," has created a diversity of opinion. Mann advocated a larger sphere of activity for women, but he made these exceptions: She ought not to fight, vote, preach, practice law nor serve on the jury. The friends of the woman's rights movement take issue with these exceptions. Mann made a statement in which he made Helen Maria Weber of Europe the exponent of the woman's rights movement. Miss Weber dresses like a man.

"We are for giving the Woman's Right party, ... an open field and fair play. And we have no jibes, jokes, nor squibs, for any school against which nine hundred and ninety-nine thousands of the world is arrayed; for of those every such school, even if certainly wrong in theory, and worse in practice, would be sure to get more than its share, though left alone to the buffetings of the knaves - who dare not rebuke the enormities of any popular school."

WOOL 2773 - DTD July 1:2/2 - In a letter to the editor, D. Yant says: "I have sold 6,930 pounds of wool numbers one and two at 40 cents per pound, and 320 pounds at 44 cents. At these rates I could have sold 50,000 pounds, but this was all I had. Wool growers generally had made up their minds to take low prices, and have lost from four to six cents per pound on all wool sold prior to June 20.

"Farmers are slow to learn. Reduced importations of wool and cloths, with a low rate of interest in the east, renders it very certain that present prices will be sustained with some advance."
