is on a yonng man down east of Troy. Daring the
past Summer, he occupied an unfinished bouse,
where be and several or bU young friends "bached."
Whea eobi weather approached, tbey abandoned
the house, and in order to keep the rata from the
bed, he attached rope to it, and drew It np above
tbe Joists, leaving It suspended nnder the roof, until
he sbontd need it again, which he expected to do be
fore many weeks, as be was thinking of getting mar
ried, Aa be would then occupy the same bouse, be
determined to plaster it. to make it comfortable for
winter. He did this work himself, both lathing and
plastering. For days be hammered and danbed, un
til be had a good thick coat uu walls and ceiling.
Then he sat himself down to contemplate his work,
and began to see that it was good, when lo ! the
thought popped into his bead that he had plastered
In his bed between tbe ceiling and the roof! He
found that tbe easiest and cheapest way would be to
knock out tbe gable end of the bouse, to get his bed
out, which he accordingly did.

S. L. K. Clib. The anniversary of this young la
dies' Club, at the Library room, last Friday night, is
reported as having been a pleasant and successful
affair. A number of subscription and donations to
tbe library were received. The young ladies have
been at considerable trouble and expense in starting
a library for the benefit of the public. They give all
their time and work free, receiving nothing for their
services. Their efforts bare not been appreciated
as they should have been, and the library has at
times been permitted lo languish. We hope the cit
izens will now be stirred np to patronize it liberally,
so that it luay bo euabled to keep itself supplied
with ail the latest books or interest.
7" The Atchison Ckamjnon complains that its
daily, sent np on the early ireight train to the Junc
tion, fails to reach subscribers on the Denver Boad
regularly, aud blames the route agents on that road
for it. We think the blame is placed wrongfully.
For several weeks past, tbe morning freight train
has very frequently not reached the Junction until
after the mail train on the Denver road has passed
there going west. This has occurred before aud
since tbe bridge accident, and wo understand that
the delay was occasioned by the freight having to
wait for extra trains to pass, of which the A. Si. X.
Road is running many. Of course, this makes the
Ctininpion too lato fur tho nestern mail.
It is said that one ontofeery four real invalids
who go to Denver, Col., to recover health never re
turn to tbe East or South except as a corpse. The
undertakers, next to the holxl keepers, tunc the
niost profitable busiuce. This excessive mortality
may be prevented, and patients served and cured
under the care of friends and loved ones at home, if
they will but use Hop Hitters iu time. This we know.

Cloud. The trouble with us was, that we had four
candidates. Fairall. for Justice of the Peace, walked

Kit. Chief: Laat Tuesday was rather a lively
day among the several aspirants for political great
ness. Ye gods ! to think meu will go wild over an
insignificant Towuship election; but tbey do, anil
no mistake, and the Chief was right, when it said
oruiu men would tiadeoQ Congressmen and Gov
ernor for Justice of the Peace anil Road Overseer,
tinder the old election law. That spirit manifested
itself here, on election dav. It is nut the patriotic
citizen tbat hangs around the polls, to "bully aud
brow-beat" voters at Township elections, but they
are mi n that would trale Christ for a amaller con
sideration than did Judas of uid.
It looked had to see men circulating what they
knew to be bare-faced lits against some of our best
citizens. All seemed to be satisfied with the men
rlrctrd, lint many deprerate the means employed to
elect soiuoof them. In theso passing remarks, I do
uot w ish to be understood as a growler, for the men
elected are good luougb, and will make efficient utrj
ccrs, especially Win. Ward. He is an uld settler of
the town tbe oldest, rxcepting this deponent and
is acqnaual "itb evrryUidy, and enjoys the es
teem and (oufidence of all fair-minded men.

but cannot expect to get a better one
Now, u few words ot comfort to the other defeated
candidates, for they deserve it. Some are young
aud unsophisticated, while others have grown gray
in politics and siu. Yea, and a few are Ureenback
ers. Tbey are a mixed crowd, and will hare a long
ami distressing journey up Salt River. May th
Lord temper the weather to the shorn lambs. It's
cold now, and tbey need the protecting care of a

oue common ninntlineut uf despair, erected to the

Politics should not be brought into Township af

A FltEE-TIII.MCEU SPOKS.
Mc Editok: In your trenchaut reply to Mrs. De
Geer Call, there is an episode, to which, as a free
thinker, I am impelled to offer a rejoinder. I refer
to your comment on tho resolution adopted by the
convention at Bismarck Grove, in favor or the pro
hibitory amendment to the Constitution. I am free
to admit that the resolution was uncalled for, not
being withiu the purview of purposes which Ihe con
vention was called to consider. The grand, distinct
ive nitn of the Liberals throughout the country is to
secure equal rights, nnder the law, for all opinions
and beliefs, and they depart from that aim wheu tbey
allow their assemblages to become a mouth-piece for
promulgating the "isms" of the day, or the "hobbies"
or so-called reformers. But when you asrt that
there is an iuconsisteurv between udvocating the
broadest toleration in individual sentiment anil sup
porting a measure for the suppression or the liquor
traffic, I must join issue.
Iu asumiug that the prohibition either or the man
ufacture or sale of intoxicating beverages is an inter
ference with private rights, you lose sight of the
fact that the very essence of human laws is an
abridgement of liberty that for the common good
of the race, mankind hare tacitly agreed to surren
der a portion of their natural rights. Certainly, no
free-thinker would lie willing to impute to laws a
divine origin, and the foregoing statemeut is bsliaved
to be in accordance with the deductions of tboso who
have made jurisprudence a study. The question, then,
simply resolves itself into oue of public jiolicy, and
the question of the abstract right has nothing to do
with it, beyond that of other proposed measures.
Among philosophers and thinkers, tho Limits orLeg
islatiou has been a theme or speculation. John Stu
art Mill, in one of uis essays, discusses tho subject,
but. I Itelievc. does not attempt to draw tbe strict
liue of demarkalion between those matters which
come within the scope of stautory enactments aud
those which do not. A little reflection will recall tbe
tact that almost every great question nf public policy
has been wrangled from this same stanilpoiut. Such
we find to have been tbe case with regard to protec
tion aud free-trade, marriage and divorce, usury and
liquor-selling; one party contending fur absolute
freedom, while tbe other would favor laws of a re
strictive or probibitorv nature ; but the ever-reenr-ring
problem being just at what point legislation
would be transeendiug its legitimate functions, by
interfering with affairs of individual or private con
cern. For example, Mr. Editor, you would oppose
polygamy, and support a law for the punishment of
transgressors against tbe same; from your stand
point, wonld fix the limit of legislation very high ;
yet your reasons would probably be similar, fa kind,
to those which the Liberalist who favors prohibition
would assign, though possibly yuu would find it dif
ficult to adduce reasons either as numerous or as
wrighty as those which can be brought to bear-against
the liquor traffic. The divine institution of marriage
you would repudiatr, and also the sanction wbieb
the Bible giics to polygamy. As a question of ab
stract right, eterythiugcuuld be maintained lufsior
or tbe latter; for what could lie mure reasonable than
foreman to be allowed tu taken plurality or wires,
where etery one personally eoucerued assented I
Taking this view, and no more flagrant interference
with private rights ran be imagined than the Uuited
State laws prohibiting iwlygamy in Utah. Vet you
doubtless find satisfactory reasons for opposing the
irstitution, based upou social considerations upon
your great respect lor the marriage relation of mod
ern civilization njion considerations or the greatest
arood to the greatest number. In like manner, the
Liberalist. so far from stultifying himself in favoring
prohibition, is merely exercising a choice between
two methods of rectifying an evil ; and wbethrr tbe
policy he advocates be that of restriction or prohibi
uibition, there is no incongruity.
If tbe foregoing be not sufficiently conclusive, tbe
case niav be briefly put in another light, which is un
answerable. Ihe case is. whether we shall have
license or prohibition. Now. regulation implies re
striction ; and when this much Is admitted, the whole
rase is conceded ; for if it U an outrage upou a man's
rights to dictate what be may eat or ilnuk, by a
parity of reasoning, we trespass upon bis rights whea
we regulate or restrict his food and dnnk.
In the alxire disrnssion, I hsve confined myself to
a single phase of the question tbat of demonstrating
the entire harmony between bring a Liberal and a

Cf W. P. Martin, of Elinor, met with quite an
adventure a few weeks ago, while visiting Leaven
worth and Platte City. Upon leaving tbe train at

Douiphau Couuty, who was looking for a man who
bad atolen a couple of mules, near Troy. He follow
ed Martin around Lcaveawortb and then to Platto
Citv, where they both put np at the same hotel, Bailey
sealing bimselt opposite Martin at the dinner table.
Bailey, it is said, is a very polite gentleman, and
paid 'iiarlicular attention to a man wbo sat next to
him at tbo table, with whom he fell into a very con
lidential and apparently interesting conversation,
but watched Martin very cl"rly all the time As
soun as the meal was over Ihe Constable followed
Martiu ont and kept bis eye 011 hiui nntil late in the
afternoon, when Uailry and Martin had an under
standing anil matters were satisfactorily explained.
Ihe spurt at Bailey's expense waa hardly over before
that gentleman received further iufornialion regard
ing the uiule thief, which satisfied him that tbe man
he was after was no other than tbe person whom be
had so politely helped at tbe table, and whose con
versational liowers be so greatly admired. Pursuit
was given, but tbe thief had down, and now Constable
Bailey ctts lighting mad when tbe incident is referred

Liberal Inducements for Procuring
The year 1SS0 will be oue of great events, and Ihe CO.
la determined to keep up with the times. Although now
as cheap a any other Country 3cwapaper giving the
same amoiait ef reading, we have ror some time realised
that wesbonM hsve either to reduce the price or enlarge
the paper. I'pon roatnre consideration, we have deter
mined to do the latter. At sessons, the great press of
adrertUiig. which i our best source of revenue, en
croaches very tuach upon the space thst should be devo
ted to resiling matter, sod very often, Interesting reading
is crowded out. This consideration baa determined na to
enlarge, anJ to retain the old price of subscription, which
Is as low aa any County Xewspaper that is worth having
can be printed fur.
The enlargement will Uka placo at the beginning of
VolomeTwenty fuur, which will be on the 17th or Jane
tho second Issne after thst aoudnalions by the ncpabllT
can National Couventioa thus entering npon the nets,
volume and Ihe Presidential Campaign together.
The enlargement will be to the extent of ono broad I
column to each page, making it an eight-column psprr.f
and a lengthening uf each column four Inches. This wi
dening and lengthening will make Ihe enlargement equiv
alent to an addition of two long columns to each pigfc, or
eight in all, and will add more than one-half to the amount
of reading matter iu the paper. The sue will be equal to
a ten column paper of the "pstrnt oatsldo" width of col
umn. We msy also Improve the dress of the Chief 1 but
this will depend wholly upou the extent of tbeencout
agement we reciire, fro m old sabecrlbtus and new. In the
enterprise f enlarging, which will be expensive, aside
from any improvement In dress, while our typo Is yet In
good wurklug condition.
We cannot pretend to compete In price with the Urge
city Weeklies, the matter of nhich first paya for itself In
a Daily Issue, again gties a gsl profit In a Tri-Weekly
r Semi-Weekly edition, and then goes into a Weekly,
which can thus be sold tor bat very little more than first
cost of the white paper, and still leave a profit. Oar pat.
runs should not ask or expect us to entor into such com
petition. If the farmer could feed his corn over three
unirs, and fatten an animal at each feeding, he would
