Press Assocutiox. Th Sonthf rn Kanfaapn
peni are propoing a meeting of the S'ale Prrs
Association at some point ill Son them Kaunas, du
ring the present Reason. Vow is a proper time to
ask: What is the nse of such meetings, or of a
State Press Association f A portion of the pnb
lUbcrs meet together, and pledge each other to
maintain regular rates fur work. Then, some
fellows who do not attend, or who are imported
for the purpose of publishing pajicrs in somelwdy'
interest, go to undermining the prices, in order to
secure the public printing, and enable 'them to
eke out a precarious existence. The members of
the Association simply resolve themselves out of
irablic work, or break thcirplcdge. Forour part,
we are resolved to fight these rats with rat med
icine, until they get sick of their own game.
A Bemixiscexck. The Topeka Jlttnrd giTcs a

Expedition, in'lSCl, designed to.takc possession
of the Indian Territory and Texas, form three or
four new States, and-to colonize hanra men in
them, to fie chosen Congressmen" and Senators.
The Record is severe npou the fogyism of Gen.
Hcstee, who knocked the scheme in head. That
being the case, the country is far more indebted
to Gen. Hcktkb than it has been aware of. If he
nipped in the bud the aspirations of the band
of shysters who were to fellow Lane South, he
did an set for which the conntry should be grate

in responsible offices.
t The Council Grove Democrat is considerably
astounded at language which "Sol. Miller" has
used regarding Vallaxmgiiam, since his death,
The Council Grove Democrat is informed, that
when a decent Democrat dies, "Sol Miller" lias
respect for his memory; but when a brute and
ruffian dies, he speaks of him as a brnte and a
ruffian. That is just what VAtXANDtGriAM was,
and his being dead cannot cliange our opinion.

inspiration of his teachings, exhibited their fiend

17 We like to endorse a man with a soul, wher
ever we find him, and in whatever party. Dave
Holt, Treasurer of Richardson County, Nebraska,
fills the bilrin one particular, at least. The. De
linquent Tax List is about to be published. The
publisher of the Enlo SegUter, in order to prevent
a competing newspaper making anything out of
it, pnt in a bid to publish it for nothing; but
Holt gave it to the Falls City Journal, at legal
rate. That is the way to do it. We do not care
a continental for the sweet-scented qnarrel going
on between the two papers; but when any man
calling himself a printer undertakes to ruin his
own trade to spite a competitor, wo like to see
them come Holt over him.
iy The Leavenworth Commercial calls the Neu
tral Land outlaws, nnder the lead of Sanfoko, the
"Kansas Communists." Those are the fellows
who petted Sn. Clarke for two years; voted al
most solidly the Democratic ticket last Fall, be
cause the Republicans would, not pander to their
lawless conduct; and have been murdering men
and burning newspapers fur differing from them.
These are all strong symptoms of Communism.

tST "Aphasia" is a disease, of which a late
writer treats, in which the person affected, gives
utterance to wonts entirely different from those,
he means to speak in other words, says one thing,
but means another. That's what lias always been
the matter with the Democratic party. "Apha

anything, they always mean something else.

There are two occasions in the life of an editor,
when he likes to have the public, and especially
his brethren of the press, speak w ell of him when

Terrible Accident. Among the most terrible
incidents of the fearful tornado on Thursday night
last, was one which occurred in Nemaha county,
Kansas, the partidulars of which we received last
evening. Iu the house of a Mr. Thompson, who
resides iu Nemaha township, in that county, three
children, aged respectively three, ten aud twelve
years, were sleeping in one bed, when the tornado
swept tho upptr story of the house away, carrying
tlio little ones with it a distance of some rods.
Tiittetwo-eldest children were instantly killed, and
the youngest seriously injured.
The pa rents rushed out in tho blinding storm only

the building, anda third writhing in agony. Their
bitter grief can better be imagined than described.
Sxake STORY. The Garnctt Plaindealer tells
the following: "One day last week, Mrs. Dr.
Mackey, of this city, was sitting in her parlor
sewing, when a tree frog came in at the window
and took its way to a door and climbed np the
door caeiug to tho top. Very soon a common
snake abont three feet long, came in at the win
dow" it was evidently looking for Mr. Frog and
took its position in the middle of the room, and
coiled nn into a spiral form and erected his head
several inches and directed his eyes to the frog;
soon the frog's attention was attracted to the
snake. Directly the frog became w charmed that
it involuntarily, but slowly, came down, the door
casement and along the floor, and finally entered
the month of Mr. Snake, evidently to its great
satisfaction, when it slowly bnt decorously retired
from tbe scene of its triumphant Jugglery."
Accidents. Speaking of harvesting casnalties,
the New Chicago Trantcript says that J. 31. Mur
phy, Esq., of that place, last week bad his hand
very badly broken while feeeding wheat to a
threshing machine. Although his injuries aro
quite severe, his hand will lie saved. A young
man, a stranger at New Chicago, had the heel of
one of his feet terribly lacerated in a horse-power
that was nml to run a thrashing machine, last
week. We heard of another accident that oc
curred in Cow ley county last week, by which a
man who was employed upon a threshing machine,
became canght in tho tumbling shaft and was
very badly injured, perhaps fatally, before being

Texas oxen can run, and throwing Mrs. Cutter
nut of tho wagon down a steep bluff, bruising her
terribly. Her face is swollen out of recognition
by her friends, and her internal injuries aro of a
