THE writings of the editor of that
lire little paper, the Princeton UNION,
last week displayed great familiarity
with a certain warm location. Be
careful, Brp. Dunn, frbn't advertise
that region too extensively. You might
get your pay in corner lots.St. Cloud
Timfs,
Yes, friend Times, corner lots in the
Icjwer regions, are about all the re
numeraturn ever we expect to receive
from a good many folks.
GOD be praised, the election is over.
It was expected' Ifeat the measure
would be defeated, but no one dreamt
of such an overwhelming majority.
We voted YES, and have no excuse or
apology to offer for so doing. We gen
erally think for ourself in regard to
things earthly as well as ueavenly, and
are perfectly wiling that every one
else should do the same. A man who
thinks he can please everyone is a fool
we try to please ourself. We are still
firm in the conviction that the peo
ple made a mistake iii rejecting the
compromise before ten years rolls
around, the State of Minnesota will
pay those old railroad bonds, interest
and principal, in full.

MThere
stMKt
are some curiosities about
the newspaper business. A^ editor
may go on until he is gray, eompli
uientinjr paople generally, and speak
ing well of them, and never receive a*
much as thank you for it, or any other
mark of appreciation. On the con
trary these same people will, very
put iu considerable time criticising him
and his paper, and in saying that it
does not amount to much anyway.
But let the editor, reverse the thing a
little and ciitieize these people, or pvt
in a sly dig at them, and lo! how quick
he will getat their true inwardness, and
learn that "that paper" has influence
and docs amount to something. And
that is about the, ouly way that, an
editor can really tell whether people
think his paper does amount to any
thing. Me has to wake them up in
some way. We shall mention other
curiosities hereafter.

light one, about one third. The pro

Princeton, by a vote of thne to one

Servile People.
Some men are afraid of making en
emies, and this is well. But when this
fear amounts to servile, it is not well.
As a general rule, the enemy is a mere'
drone in the great hive of created in
telligence, lie is a milk and waUu
man, who contents himself with doing
uo harm, white it is notorious that he
is doing no good. Such men are time

creep after men of positionand proper

humble walks of life* They take no

The Evergreen of the Feelings.
A golden mine of affection, of wnich
the smallest glimmer is scarcely visible,
lies buried in the breast until some
magic word reveals it, and then man
discovers his ancient treasure. To me
it is a delightful that, during the prox
imity, the heart gathers up in silence
the nutriment of love, as the diamond,
even beneath water, imbibes the light
it emits. Time, which deadens
hatred, secretly strengthens love aiid
in the hdur of threatned separation its
growth is manifested at once in radiant
brightness. One reason why man fan
cies himself chilled by old age, is that
lie can then feel interested only in
higher objects than those which once
excited him. The lover of nature, the
preacher, the poet, the actor, or the

SIR:In a recent number of your
paper, I noticed an article in which
the author used my name, i WiaJ" ffe
vindicate myself of one charge that C.
B. Walker, as he styles himselfbet
ter known as *to Walkervand
that's where he reckoned me in when
he charged his neighbors of concocting
the plan to get that little French
Dulcenia. of his away from him, the
thing which he styles his wife. Now,
I will say right here, that if he calls it
neighboring to live beside persons five
years and not have the privilege of
crossing the threshold of their door,
I'm nnmfetakeably the cow's neighbor.
As*for my being implicated in the re*
cent muddle between old Cow and hit

sayings. The truth never escaped his
lips, if it did it was about the time ha

farm, for when he imported himself to
Minnesota he left a wife and seven
children in Maine. Now, old Cow,
you had better keep quiet you need
