An Unusual Cue.
We were lately tola of life insurance eae
that was decidedly ont of the ninal nm of
inch cases, and struck us as being both original
and sensible. Henry Clay Williams, of Topelta,
brother of Archie Williams, is in the last stages
of consumption, and cannot last nwre than a
brief time, at farthest. He knows it, talks about
it, and philosophiies on it. When in health, he
was an express agent, and belonged to the Ex
pressmen's Mutual Insurance Association, or
whatever it was called, being one of those asso
ciates which pay a member's family a specified
amount, upon his death, to be made np by assess
ments upon all the members. Williams determin
ed that he was dead to all intents and purposes,
and recently went to the head officers of his as
sociation, pnt in the claim that he was dead,
and demanded the amount of his insurance. He
produced the certificate of a physician, pronounc
ing him practically if not actually dead. The
company, after some consideration, decided that
the claim was correct, and paid him the two thou
sand dollars to which he was entitled. He made
the application as administrator of his own es
tate, and is now settling up his estate, as such
administrator. He is straightening up all his
aflairs, making arrangmenta to bury himself,
and planning to leave his wife and one or two
children in as good circumstances as he possibly

H has a disease that is certain death, and that
soon. The money would have to be paid in a
few months, at farthest, and this short time in
advance wrongs no'jody. But it puts him in a
condition to pass away in comfort, to straighten
np his worldly a&idrs, to bnry himself, and to
leave something for his family, instead of having
it withheld on quibbles after his death, consum
ed in litigation, or stolen by administrators or
holders of trumped Op claims.
A Ciiaxce Xezdkd. Of all the persistent,
dogged, intense electioneering, that for Coad
Overseers in this Township beau all the State
or National elections wo ever saw. A candidate
for Boad Overseer, as a rule, would sell his soul
or betray Christ for votes. Instead of throwing
these Township elections back with the State
and County elections, the Legislature should
separate the election of Road Overseers even
from the Township elections. The law contem
plates or intends that persons shall vote for
Koad Overseers only fur the District in which
they live. But such a contest is usually got up
In two or three Districts, that half the voters of
the Township become interested, and vote for the
candidates of those Districts. A separate day
should be fixed fur the election of Road 0 crseers,
to be held at some school-house in the District;
this would prei eut any but residents of the Dis
trict from voting, and the people could decide their
own contest, without interference from ontside.
Or, still better, the County Commissioners or
other certain County officers should be empower
ed to appoint Road Overseers. In this way, the
most competent and honest men would hold the
office. The struggle for this little office creates
the suspicion that there is a fat job in it. Such'
is doubtless the case ; for we learn that one Road
0rseer, at the last meeting of tho Township
Board, drew warrants fur over $200, for services
on the roads. Let ns have a change.
OniTCAnr rocrnr. Obituary poetry is usu
ally the very worst stuff that can be written,
and is tho very hardest to refuse to pnblish. A
majority of people who loso friends by death,
seem to be in a manner soothed and consoled
if a few verses are composed and published to
the memory of the deceased ; and it is a very
nnpleasaut matter to refuse so slight a favor as
publishing such verses, although well knowing
that they will be subjected to ridiculo and to
rude remarks. It is getting to be so common,
that some rural poet writes verses to the memory
of almost every one that dies, old or young. We
are actually ashamed of much of the stuff of this
kind that we publish, and only wonder that the
friends of the dead do not feel the same way. A
gentleman once requested ns not to pnblish a po
em that had been sent inonthedeathofa mem
ber of his family. We admired his good sense,
and complied with his request, although greatly
to the disappointment of the well-meaning poet.
These verses are usualiy some poem which the
writer has seen or heard, and has been altered
to suit the occasion, and to make it read non
sensical and ridiculous. We have long been on the
point either of rejecting all snch contributions,
or charging an advertising fee for the infliction.
Wc hope the practice will be abandoned, except
in rare and peculiar cases. It is no compliment
to the dead.
Temperance Legislation. The wild Texas
steers of tho temperance elements are more likely
defeat all temperance legislation than to effect
They want to overdo it, and make laws so
stringent as to be inoperative, or render them
unconstitutional even under the amendment.
One proposes a law to prevent persons from as
sociating to purchase liquor to be brought into
the State. Another proposes to make it a crime
to drink liquor. Another proposes to compel a
physician to make affidavit to every prescription
ho gives for liquor, swearing that it is for medi
cinal purposes. Thero is a strong common sense
feeling in tho Legislature, even among temper
ance members, who are not in favor of running
the thing into the ground; and nnless the wild
steers agree to something within the bonnds of
reason, tho chances are that there will be no
laws passed on the subject, and St, John will be
left with a naked amendment on his hands. The
Constitutional amendment prohibits the man
ufacture or sale of liquor in the State. The Su
preme Court would be pretty apt to sit down on
any law prohibiting men from bringing it from
other States fur their own use, or from drinking
A MuurrBEiiKNSiox Corrected. Many per
sons seem to labor under the idea that we are
pnshetl to find matter to fill our paper. On the
contrary, largo as it is, the trouble is to find
room for what we have to put in it. Scarcely a
week passes but we are compelled to leave over
several columns of matter actually crowded
out. County items are always given room, but
we have no space to spare for correspondents to
quarrel, and slash at one another. We cannot
permit it. We resene the right to do all the
quarreling. Neither is it worth while to writo
three or four large foolscap pages merely for the
sake of writing something. We threw aside sev
eral contributions of the kind, this week. One
of the subjects badly exhausted, is in reference
to the little problem somebody said Ed. Heeney
couldn't solve. The public generally are not in
terested in what little arithmetical question cer
tain country school teachers slipped np in at

THE FATE OF THE COTOTBY PBESS.
Almost every week; we find additional papers
that have adopted the "patent outside" and pat
ent stereotype block system of printing the pa
pers. There are nor but few country papers in
Kansas, or in the entire West, for that matter,
that are not run npon a "patent" system of some
sort. To a person who reads but one or two pa
pers, this is all well enough; but to one who re
ceives from fifty to one hundred weekly, it is a
great bore. Whenever a paper adopts this sys
tem, it loses its energy aL , We, and becomes a
plodding, spiritless concern. All the care of
reading and selecting is taken from the publish
er, and he confies himself to gathering up a few
locals and advertisements. The editor of a lat
ent outside almost hues his identity. Much of
the labor of thinking is taken from him, and
simply mechanical duties engage his attention.
There are several causes for the decay of the
country press. The greatest is tho the superior
facilities and the immense subscription lists of
the large city weeklies, by which Isrge sheets,
containing vast amounts of reading matter, are
sent for $1 to 1M a year; and this is aided by
the peuuriouiiuess and waut of consideration of
the snbscibers to country papers. Aot a day
passes, but the publisher of the country paper is
badgered and importuned to let his paper go for
$1 or f 1 .50 a year, because such and such big city
paper, containing three or four times as much
reading, is sent for that price. Those subscrib
ers do not consider that the country publisher
has to depend solely upon his earnings from
week to week, while the city piper, owned by
wealthy stock companies, printed by steam, and
possessing all the best advantages, can afford
the paper, all the natter in which has already
been paid for in a daily paper, at a very low fig
ure. The same overwhelming power of capital
has crushed out the country hatter, the tailor,
and almost crushed out the shomaker, the cabi
net maker, and many other trades. It is crush
ing out the farmer in England and Ireland, and
will do it in America, in course of time. The
fanner who attempts to beat down tho prices of
a country publisher, does not reflect that the
same thing is fast coming home to him. He is al
ready helpless in the matter of transportation,
and will soon be in the matter of production.
When the country printer is furced down to the
prices of the wealthy city papers, he first tries
to stand it, by such make-shifts as "patents,"
but in a brief time goes to the walk Then, ev
ery little town must hai e its newspaper. The
patronage is divided np, and "patents" are again
resorted to, to make up for insufficient patron
age, and all starve out by slow degrees.
The thing that every citizen of a County is
mott deeply interested in, is the affairs of his
own County. The cheap city paper gives him
nothing of this, hut the only place to find it is
in the County paper. If they break down the
County paper, by forcing it into competition
with the city paper, whose matter has been
printed over and over, and paid for several times
before it goes into the weekley, how are they to
keep informed npon their own home affairs T
The capital of cities is gradnslly driving out
the mechanics of small towns. We suppose the
printer must go with the rest. Every paper that
adopts a patent outside, throws at least half its
printers out of employment, and many of them
employ the cheapest and most inefficient hands
to do the work that is required at home. It re
duces the population of tho town so much, and
the business in proportion. Five families live
from labor on the Chief t and nearly every dollar
that they earn is spent in Troy, for the necessa
ries of life. The same holds good with any oth
er town. If we should adopt a "patent outside,"
the heads of at least two or three families would
have to go, and would leave town, to find employ
ment elsewhere. Yet not a week passes but we
are higgled with by persons able to buy ns over
and over, to put down our price to that of the
city papers, which we could not do without using
"patent ontsides," turning off most of our hands,
giving np all control over the reading matter of
half our paper, and sending out a paper that we
were ashamed of.
These remarks are not on our account, for wo
have not yet come down to the "patent" neces
sity; bnt they are suggested by what we see dai
ly in other country papers, and what we wonld
have to come to, were it not for the fact that a
majority of our subscribers are of the class who
are willing that other men shall live.

It is charged that the Burlington and Missouri
RiveiRaiIroad Company, who control the Atchi
son and riebraska Road, are refusing to ship
grain south, to go to St. Louis, but compel deal
ers to ship over their lines to Chicago. A citi
zen of Falls City informs ns that grain dealers in
that town have been notified that they cannot
have cars for shipping grain, nnless they ship
through the new elevator, that hss just been
built there; and that dealers at Rnlo, who have
a large warehourse near the road, have been no
tified not to pay a higher price for corn than the
price paid at the Falls City elevator. (The Rn
lo men have been paying more.) The proprie
tor of that elevator is a member of the Nebraska
Legislature, elected by the farmers of Richard
son County, to look after their interests. What
does he, as a member of the Legislature, give
the Railroad Company in return for this monop-
ly I Now, if these reports are true, what greater
outrage could be perpetrated npon the people of
any country f A Railroad Company gives one
man a monopoly in shipping, and other dealers
are prohibited from paying a higher price for
grain than he sees fit to pay.
.The people of Kansas expect their Legislatnre
to take measures to relieve them of snch extor
tions. They know it is said that the Railroad
Companies have the Legislatnre under their in
fluence, and are watching to see if it is so. Any
member who fails to work for the interests of
the people, will have to take the consequences.
His Bowels Move. Caldwell, of the Beloit
Courier who is laboring under tho hallucina
tion that he was a candidate for State Printer,
at the recent election by the Legislature, is ex
ceedingly wroth, and empties his capacions bow
els at us, because of remarks made by us concern
ing certain alleged caudidatea for that office.
He takes the appellation of "patent outside
dauber" to himself. If he takes our remarks to
himself, he is welcome to them. Some editor,
for a "gag," proposed Caldwell fur State Printer.
He bit, and others helped it along. The shallow
pated noodle actually spent several weeks at To
peka before and at the commencement of the ses
sion, "working up his ckauees," He roped in
some ten or a dozen members from the region in
which he holds forth, who felt that they could
bitter afford to humor his whim thau to incur
his enmity and abuse. He floundered around
there, the laughing-stock of all; but in the end,
he discovered that he did not hold the balance
of power, and that there was no need for any
candidate to buy him off. He has had his troub
le and expense for nothing, and is a good subject
to laugh at, for the next four years. Whenever
he feels a looseness again, he has our permission
to turn this way. But it will be as well for him
to bear in mind that George W. Martin does not

An Old Btory.
A number of our exchanges are republishing
an old, old story, that has run, year after year,
since the olden time. It is, in substance: "Wood
wanted at this office;" or, "Wood taken at this
office un subscription;" or, "Those of onr sub
scribers who promised to pay their subscriptions
in wood, will greatly oblige ns by bringing it
soon." We are fond of re-publishing old stories,
and this one used to bo one of our favorites; but
years ago we discovered that it was a fiction sot
even bundcd upon fact, and discarded it from
the catalogue of things "old, but good." The
man who promises to pay bis subscription in
wood, is a twin brother fraud to the one who
promises to pay for his paper after harvest. When
a man promisee to payfur his paper after harvest,
set down his account as worthless. When a man
promises to pay in wood, give him some wood'to
remember you by say an axe-handle, or a mallet,
or a roller-core. We hare known men to get so
far behind with their subscription, that een
they feared they would be scratched off, and
hate come and promised to "run s load of wood
into ns" next week. We always consented to
having the load of wood "run into ns," well
knowing that it would not hurt ns much, for it
would not come. However, it is a good way to
gain time, and get tho paper for a few weeks
longer for nothing. Brethren, the man who
promises to pay you wood on subscription, never
will do it, as long as he can sell it to somebody
else, or trade it for "truck;" and these resources
failing, he will bring you green, rotten or crook
ed stuff, charge yon double price for it, and make
you take it for twice as much as it will measure.
Let that old story die out.

Ma. Cuixr: In my last, I noticed a few observa
tions that I made while in Chicago, the great city of
the West. I visited some of the grain elevators, also
Board of Trade rooms, and many other places of in
terest. The grain elevators have a storage capacity
of 20,000,000 bushels, and ran handle almost an un
limited amount. I think Chics;, has got the grain
trade of the West so firmly seated in her lap, that it
cannot be diverted I fear that St. Louse wul never
be able to get the grain trade and productions of the
great Valley of the West; but the producers of the
Missouri Valley mast not give up the hope of getting
cheaper freights to tkle-wster. The railroads have
got the upper hand, at present; but I think, in time,
we can wet them out, by making the proper Improve
ments necessary to open the inland navigable
streams of the West. The Jetties at the mouths of
the Misiissiipi hate proven a success, and I think
the improvements will be continued up to St. Louis,
AVeu, I left Chicago tho 34th of December, on tho
Pittsburg &. Ft. Wayne Railroad, and arrived in

seat of Elkhart County, Indiana, 120 miles from Chi
cago, on the M. 8. Air-Line Road. Goshen is situated
on the east bank of the Elkhart River. I resided
here from 1835 tHl 1866, when I moved to my present
borne in Kansas. I found goood sleighing all the

m- January lOtn, 1881, John Stafford Pemhcrtoo.
He waa born at Frankfort, Kv., ou the SStfa of Ju
ly, 1823, and was, at the time of hie death. 57 rear
and 5J months old. Hi remains were interred, on
the day after hi death, at Monticello, where, only
wanting a few months of forty years ago, he saw
latd in the grave the remaina of hi revered father,
and where have since been laid, aide by aide, a little
brother, and five loved and loving aistera. His aged
and venerated mother, whoae earthly etay and com
fort he waa, and three aistera survive him.
He earn, with bis parents, to Missouri, early in
1837. and settled at Monticello, where he grew up to
manhood. In 187, he waa married to the eldest
danghter of the late Judge Ellia, who, with three
children, a daughter and two sons, live to mourn
their irreparable lose.
Growing np, aa be did, in this community, and
known to almost every old reaident, there ia little
need of reciting the noble charactenaticaofhfana

that compelled the respect and confidence of all, and

Hie earlier, and a Urge part of hie mature life, waa
passed amongst the hardy pioneers of California
Colorado, and Montana, and he loved their open,
hearty manners, their ungrudged hospitality, and
unfailing kindness. It was doubtless their early aa
sociations that taught him. to value men, not by
their exterior polish, their learning, or their money,
bnt by their manhood, clothed, though it might be,
in rags. He possessed, in a remarkable degree, tho
faculty of judging nienvwiLh whom he came in con
tact, and aeemed to look into men's character with
almost intuitive perception. Hi conclusions were
nuicKij uuuc, ana seiuom erroneous. This quality,
doubtless, sometimes led him into error, but never
into injustice. He could be guarded and cantioua,
without beinr unjust. Bnt ba hat.! aint .! vt.

Ho thought the best way to get a blessing, was not

Sr. Lolh, January 21. Thero i a pro'pect for a
lively squeeze on January corn. Tho amount short
fur tins optiun i onously etiiuatcd at from 230,000
to 1,300,000 bushels, partica interested In having the
market advance, placing the shortage at the larger
amount, while tho shorts tbemselvc laugh at the
idea of its being over 500,000 bushels, et, whde
this latter shortage la small. It U em"-fa,undir pres
ent circumstances, to create a great dtal of uneasi
ness in the minds of the shorts. The cause for this
uneasiness Is to be found In the fact that, while most
of the shorts have the actual corn here, or on the
way, they are unable to git this corn into the eleva
tors, so that they will bo enabled to make their reg
ular deliveries. The elevator men state that they
are pretty near full of grain, and can only wort
slowly, taking a little at a time, and that there U not
now anyway of relieving this blockade; norisauy
relief looked for Iu the near future. This i what
trouble the shorts, aud i interfering with their
nightly rest. They hate the actual grain rmirhased
to toll their oufntauding contracts, but are unable to
Eet their grain into store. It i soid that two of the
trgest shorts have about one thousand car of corn
between them, either already on tha way here or al
ready on track iu this market. At any rate, the
bill of lading are out for this amount, and there are
other parties who are in the same fix, only for les
amounts. In all these are aaid to be bill of tailing
ont fur three thousand car. Tho parties to this
squeeze are aaid to be a prominent commission houso
a the principal and really the only longs, aa they
hold most of the contracts and most of the cash,
while a couple other parties ait aa broker. But,
while this house la supposed to contemplate squeez
ing the market, they have not yet made a move in
that direction, except In as far as refusing to settle
their January contracts, demanding, instead, the
actual corn. There wa a sharp d heavy adrance
in the speculative grades fur cash and January, to
day, but this waa entirely due to a scare among a
few of the shorts, who ran the market np on them
selves, in their eagerness to covor, bypurchasiug the
cash grain, or selling out January. The price o7Xo.
2 mixed, (the speculative grade.) went np to 41
cents, which was an advance of 11 cents over yes
terday. Mixwackix, January 31. The wheat market waa
decidedly strong here, today, the bears making con
tinued but quite ineffectual efforts to buy in. a belief
having taken hold, that large amounta of wheat had
been bought np by prominent operators at the recent
decline. There aeemed to be no desire, on the part
of the other side, to sell, and but a light business was
done. No. 2 spring, February, opened strong at the
morning board, and then advanced to 97 cents, bnt
shortly after, declined to S7J cents. From this it
advanced steadily until 97 cents was reahed, and
31 cent fur March. On 'Change, the market waa
ateady, at the closing prices of the forenoon board.
In the afternoon, a further ad ranee waa experi
enced, in sympathy with the Chicago market, and
Xo. 2 February, closed strong at 97f cents bid, and
March at 98J centa. The receipt here to-day were
12,000 bushel, and the shipments2,S) bushels. The
stock In store Is 2.883.0U0 bushels, against 4,630,000
