JraosuWThe fpnowing U 'ft Ut of the petit Jorora
drawn for ttie September tern of the District Court :
Tbe Exccesiox. The excursion to Fort Leaven
worth was a crowded affair, but very badly bungled.
The parties who got it np, no donbt did their hcrt to
make it pleasant, hut the railroad managers have a
way, with their red tape and their great wisdom, of
making a nuisance of everything of the kind. The
excursion started behind time, and it was a scries of
t4lions delays to the end, which occurred somewhere
near daylight the next morning. We never go on
excursions, but wo fcympathued with those who went
on this one. An excursion, to be endurable, should
he made tho exclusive charge of one man, and that
man, a high railroad authority, with power to o
ahead, and not subject to tho orders of every station
agent on tho route; and he should bo a man of good
common sense, free from tho big bead, and MKiscsscd
of patieuco and kindness.

Pbocblss of the SteiiAl S'mco our last issue, the
strike on the Burr-Oak Central has spread to Troy.
The employees on Walker's line struck, and were fol
lowed by the men engaged on chair bottoms. They
held public meetings, and paraded tho streets, forc
ing the goods-box holders to quit work, although tha
latter declared that they were satisfied with their
places and wages. The knife and fork handlers have
not yet joined in.the strike; butuuless tho demand
for bread is acceded to, they may fall Into lino. Thus
far, the glass-lifters arc the only ones who have
shown a determination to stick to their work. Tho
Xetcr-Swcats, of course, are still quiet; hut this so
ciety was organized for the express purpose of dis
couraing labor strikes.
A Btrike was started among the home-trainers, hut
it was suppressed before getting under dangerous
headway. One of them is still standing out, and it is
feared ho may march iu force, aud compel the others
to quit work.
The Same Old Srottr. The Sau Juan letters of B.
O'Driscoll repeat tho old, old story of disappointment
and privation, and of adrcnturocs longing to get back
to Kansas. For twenty years we have been preach
ing to the people to stay in Doniphan County. Very
many would not heed this advice, but those who
wished they hail, have not bteD few. We still be
lieve that this ia tho best comer of tho world. We
have our drawbacks and discouragements, hut taken
year after year, if they would stick to it, and w ork half
as hard as tbry Io when they go away to strike a for
tune, they could make it pay here. They may talk
about California, aud Colorado, and Oregou, and
Montana, and the Black Hills, and San Juan, and
Texas, and the lead mines; but the men who stick to
Doniphan County, and get down to business, will ha o
the most to show for it, in the cud..

CF" On Thursday night of last week, burglars en

silver change, together with o er one hundred one
cent pieces. The clerk was asleep iu tlio store at the
time, but was not disturbed in Ids slumbers. It is a

hammer missed, and hit the clerk on tbe head. A

ou the excursion from St. Joseph ; but as bad luck
would lull e it, tho strike reached its height on tliat
day, and the excursion was not permitted to come.
The Society undertook to dispose of its surplus ktuff

Ei7Ifthe editor of the Hiawatha Vitpatth would
only let himself out, he would soon rank among the
noted funny men of the country. Last week, he was
very facetious at the expense of the Ckief, and very
appropriately he undertook to indulge his merriment
over onr item relative to a lady being se ercly hurt,
hy a window-sash falling upon her head. Ho thinks
we mnt have tremendous window-sah down this
way. l'crhaiw if ho were told that mauy a jierson
has lieeu killed by tho falling of window-sash upou
their heads, he could not control his mcrrimeat.
However, if he wishes to settlo tho prevalent dciht
as to whether he has any brains or not, wo iu ite him
to call down here, and let ouc of the sashes in onr
office-windows gently descend upon his head. One
trial would effectually solve tho problem, and leave
no room fbr laughing. But down this way, they do
not stuff old hats in windows, and call them window-
sash. Tho editor of the JHtjnteh should tear himself
away from home, and learn something.
Positive Bejclts. There are numerous remedies

G?" We are informed by one who was there, that
the excursion from St. Joe. was not prevented by tho
strike from running to Troy, last Tbursflay night.
A very large number of iersous were at the depot,
waiting to come, but were informed that the strikers
would not allow tho train to go out. A committee
then went to tho leaders of tbe strike, and were in
formed by them that the axcursion would not be in
terfered with. Still tho railroad managers refused
to let tho tram go. Perhaps they expected to make
sympathy with the public, by making it appear that
the strikers prevented tho excursion from leaving.
When all the meanness and arbitrary acts mixeil up
with the striko are properly clarified, by far the big
gest share will bo found to belong to the railtoads.

Yet, if they succeed in getting their wages raised,
the Grangers will have it to pay, in higher rates of

railroad companies cannot operate their own roads
without starving their laborers and bleeding their
patrons, they should collapse, like all other enter
prises that do lut pay an honest dividend to their
stock-holders. The truth is, we need more stringent
laws for the protection of labor, and stronger safe

from the first acquaintance of tbe above case. But if
Homeopathy had diagnosed diabetes, he would have
