It has heretofore been our pleasure to
boast of our many social events at
Snelling, but now it becomes our most
painful duty to announce the mysterious
disappein ence of one of our best
soldiers, Sergeant John N. Norton of
the Twenty-fifth Infantry Band, who
left his station Sunday, August 29th and
has not been seen or heard of since.
He enlisted in Baltimore, Md., May
1879. Joined company 25th
Infantry in October the same year,
which was then at Fort Concho, Texas.
Peret. Norton had a great desire to
learn music, and for this he was trans
ferred to the band in 1881 where he
soon gained the confidence of all as well
as a vast progrees in his musical studies.
Was discharged at this post, May 1884.
It being the expiration of his enlist
ment, he reinlisted in the band,and was
married to a Miss L. A. Richardson, of
West Point, N. Y., here they lived
happily together. Every one is per
plexed to know the cause of his wrong
act. Mrs. Norton is much worried about
her husband and has made strenuous
efforts to find out his whereabouts but
it has all proved futile. Norton was
last seen on the 29th in conversation
with Sergeant Kellum his intimaU
friend. Kellum has been interviewed
but he says Norton never intimated any
thing to him like trouble, he was in
citizen's'dress and claimed that he waBbut
going to St. Paul to visit the church and
that his wife was in thrvt city visiting a
Mrs. Underwood. It was first feared
that some foul deed had been commit
ted but upon investigation at the bank
in St. Paul, it was found that he had
drawn all of his deposits except three
hundred and seventy-five dollars which
was deposited in his wife's name. Mrs,
Norton left here on the 11th inst. for
the East. She has the sympathy of all
her friends. SUBSCRIBER.
Adams' German Class.
THE efforts of the good citizens ot this
city to induce Prof.C.F. Adams to remain
and teach a class in German have been
crowned with success. The requisite
number has been obtained and the
class opens next Monday at Union Block,
Hall, No. 42, corner of Fourth and Cedar
streets,lourth floor,(Take elevator.) The
class recites at 4 and 8 P. the learner
may attend at the more convenient
hour. The class room is centrally lo
cated, light and airy and is lighted at
night by electricity.

already registered for the course:

teaches what is known as the Natural
Method which has been so simplified
that any person of ordinary ability who
can read and write English well, can get
a fair, practical knowledge of the Jan
guage. No English is allowed in the
class room all explanations are given
in German. The system is that of na
ture, the pupil learning German very
much like a child acquiring his mother
tongue. His success has been pheno
menal in every case, as he takes a class
of pupils who never have read or
spoken a word of German and in six
weeks they will go before the public
and give a literary and musical enter
tainment every word in German.
The readers of the WFSTEPN APPEAL
are cordially invited to visit the class
Monday or Tuesday at 4 or 8 P. M.
New pupils will be received either day,
those who desire to register for the
course should do so at once.

EDITOR OF THE APPEAL:
Your valuable journal makes its
pearance promptly eveiy week and I
hope that in the near future will find us
in possession of good results which may
be derived from the labors of those
patroits who so ardently displayed their
philanthropy at the national Colored
Press convention which met in Louis
ville, Ky., on the 10th of August. I
that the principles for the promotion of
which they met will not fall stingless at
the feet o/ those auti-philanthropists,
will triumph over all adversity. We
think that the bona fide citizens of this
state are in favor of a compulsory sys
tem of education, for the future well
being of the people of this state, we
hope that the legislature will, in the
near future, pass such a law. We need
it. The legislature took steps to pass
such a law last winter.
We still hold to our belief, that ignor
ance is governed by tho lash, while in
telligence is governed by reason. We
think that there is sufficient money col
lected in the state of Mississippi to
school every child between the ages of
5 and 21 years in each school district at
least six months in each year,but owing
to indifference, lack of clothing or other
flimsy excuses, parents neglect to send
their children to the public free schools,
the result is degradation, wretchedness,
poverty, etc. As we expressed it in our
motto, ignorance is governed by the
lash. We know that the new school law
of this state is some better than the old
one was, yet we think that the new one
could be ameliorated a little. We beg
all law makers and legislators and all in
authority to formulate such laws as will
compel the attendance of every child,
white and colored to attend our free
schools. The answer comes back to us
from many of the school districts that
they scarcely have any school. I have
wondered why our legislature or con
gress have not taken proper steps in
this direction. One answer presents it
self to my mind, and it is this, that so
many love whisky. Now, Whisky has
been in use for many, many years, and
what has been the result It has been
the means of making homes desolate and
wives widows and children orphans. I
has caused poverty, suicide, murder,
robbery and a thousand other evils, the
time is fast approaching when we shall
go to the ballot box and say whether
the manufacture and sale of whisky
hall continue or not. It is a sin to de
stroy good food in distilling whisky.
The brewer and distiller not only des
troy millions of bushels of good food,
but they convert it into poison, where
with to destroy the men whom it should
have fed. I think we must educate, or
perish by our own prosperity. If we
do not put forth every means, short will
be our race from the cradle to the grave.
Now if in our haste to become rich and
mighty, we outrun our literary and re
ligious institutions and they will never
overtake us. We are aware that our
ablest philanthropists are looking out
on the deep, vexed with storms,
forebodings and falling of heart for fear
of things that are coming upon us, and
I perceive a spirit of impatience rising
and a distrust in respect to the perpetu
ity of our republic and I am sure that
these fears are well founded. I is the
star of hope in our dark horizon. Speed
the time when we can truthfully say a
"permanent school system." J. J. C.
