DeWitt C. Talmage doesn't object to

makes the world curious to know what
kind of a man he is snd run to hear-him,
but when it comes to slanderous misrep
resentations concerning his domestic re

then turn the other cheek for some more;
but with all the thunder and lightning

nails the falsehood in a way to fix it for

person who dares to assert it again. If
everybody's detainers might be handed

The Farmer's Review says: ""What is
wanted by our dairymen is abetter home
demand. Wc have no doubt the con
sumption of cheese in this country is in
creasing, but not in proportion to the in
crease of production. Just how this is
to be done is the problem. To introduce
it into the army as a ration would be a
great point gained in this direction. Dai
rymen themselves must originate the
means of pushing home business." To
which the Chagrin Falls Exponent adds;
"The problem is not a difficult one of
solution. Hake good, eatable cheese,
so that when a piece ia bought at the
grocery it will be eaten and another pur
chased; so that the patrons of the fac
tories who now consume but little cheese
win turn to and become active consumers .
Put in all the cream, and lessen compe
tition among butter-makers so that they
win get better prices and stick to the
business instead of becoming competi
tors of the cheese makers."
At the Ohio Educational Convention
last week Vf. W. Boss, Supt. of the Fre
mont schools spoke si length on the de
fects of the ungraded schools. The main
points consisted of the following objec
tiona which we clip from the Cleveland
1st. The want of scholarship tn the teach
ers of these schools aad oft times their youth
and in inexperience, aa objection that will
hold very frequently against the graded as
well aa the ungraded schools..

- 4th. The smallness of the schools result
I ig partly from this division ot the school
nax and partly from too great a number of
s jbdistricta. -
5th. The mongrel system of township
and sub-district boards dividing and subdi
6th. Lastly the entire want of adequate
supervision and oversight of these schools,
each school running its owa independent
course subject to a semiannual change of
teachers, aad the responsibility which is di
vided among 40.000 unpaid officers through
out the State becoming so inflnltesslmal that
no one feels it, and no one assumes it.

5. A township board of education to take
charge of the schools of the township.

At this Convention the Committee on
Be solutions reported as follows: .
Wnuu. ' This convention holds these
truths to be absolute sad universal:
1. That the concern of parents for the
good of their children absorbs and controls
all other human interests.
8. That the welfare of the Btate depends
upon the morality aad Intelligence of its peo
ple. S. That to prepare children for successful
and useful lives, aad for the Just performance
of their duties in the primary meetings, snd
at thejpolls, good schools are indispensable.
4. That good schools cannot be secured
without the direction and supervision of
skilled experts: and
Wkxkxas, The truth last named is further
upported by experience and observation to

feature of the school systems in three-

4. That the people of the rural districts
who are within reach of town or city

pense, very commonly seek to have their
children educated in these schools.
6. That the boys and girls thus sent to
cities for education are estranged from the
life and duties of the farm and country
household, and that as a result the tendency
of population Is to lar-rer cities, thus inter'
ferlna with the proper distribution of labor
and with the best development of the re
sources of the whole country.

thoroughly and impartially investigated by
the people, the almost unanimous opinion is
that faithful and earnest supervision of the
common schools af the whole State is vital

In consideration ot the principles and
facts above stated be it
Resolved, That this convention, composed
of friends of education and teachers, do

OUR NEW YORK LETTER.
Did you ever hear that little story of
the dead lion, and bow various other an
imals, including him of the long ears,
amused themselves by kicking defunct
majesty? I have, and am always re
minded of it about this season, when
pretty much everybody who has a chance
to print his remarks steps bravely up
and kicks the old year. And I don't
know why it is, but it seems to me that
no year that has given up the ghost since
I first saw the light was so soundly be
labored on its deathbed as 1878. What
can be the reason? It was a pretty good
year as years go To be sure it had its
little irregularities, which I suppose I
might dwell on, but please show me the
year that has got along witnout vnem
Let us remember the proverb which for
bids us to speak anything but good of
the dead, and not add poignancy to old
Father Time's latest bereavement by cir
culating evil reports about his newly-entombed
Then as to the New Year, I suppose I
ought to make a few remarks by way of
conforming to custom, but really I know
no sensible reason for doing so. Every
one of vour readers knows just as much
about him as I do; in fact those of them
know more who sat up to witness his ad
vent into the world. I find myself get
ting too old for such vigils, and much
prefer sleeping through the eventful mo
ment when every glass is raised to pledge
the health of the new-comer. Bo ail
can say about 1879 just now is, that he
is a little inclined to be cold. Almost his
first official act was to put bis foot on tbe
mercury of my thermometer and drive it
way down below par, shovel Broken ice
by the thousand tons into our rivers and
harbor, and turn us into a red-nosed and
cold-toed community. II any or his iu
ture proceedings in this vicinity prove
worthy of record, it will afford me great
pleasure to communicate them to you.
If you can pardon my tendency to
quote fables, allow me to refer you once
more to x sop, this time noticing what
he says about that large mountain which,
once upon a time, after groaning and
earthquaknig around for a considerable
period, and thereby filling thi neighbors
with breathless and awe-stricken expec
tation, brought forth a particularly small
mouse. Perhaps you may see some ap
propriateness in the allusion in connec
tion with the formal resumption of specie
Owing to the fact that New Tear's is
a legal holiday in New York, the practic
al evidenoe of resumption namely the
reception of greenbacks in payment of
duties at the Custom-House was not
shown until the 2d Inst. On that day
Wall St., presented a gala appearance.
Immense flags floated from either aide of
the main entrance to the Custom-House,
while leading banks and private banking
establishment) displayed similar patriot
ism. A broad smile was over the face
of the whole financial world. For the
first time since 1802, merchants and bro
kers passed their entries by the payment
of greenbacks instead of gold. Inside
the cashier's office where formerly bad
been a constant chink of gold in the
scales or upon the counters' tables, on
Thursday there was comparative quiet, as
the crisp notes were handed in with a
chuckle. For sixteen years had the mer
chants staggered from their banks under
the weight of gold. A bsg containing
$3,0u0 of this metal is about all an able
bodied man can carry without looking
one-sided; and when it ia remembered
that some business houses pay duties to
the amount of $75,000 at a time, an idea
of the physical relief alone may be had.
The daily business at the Custom-House
often aggregates over half a million, and
on special occasions, such, for instance,
as a change in the rate of tariff, the
amount ia much greater, having reached
the sum of two and a half millions of
dollars. Thus is business good or bad
with Uncle Sam, aa with us poor hopeful
or despondent mortals. During the af
ternoon of the 2nd instant. Collector
Merrill visited the carhiur's office to find
everything running si smoothly as though
the new system had been under full way
At the sub-treasury there was little or
no excitement; holders of greenbacks
making no efforts to redeem them in coin,
Assistant-Treasurer Hillhouse had in his
vaults to meet the demand $110,000,000
in gold. Business began at 10 o'clock;
the Navy-Yard fired a National salute,
and one (0 young man appeared at the
wicker-gate of the sub-treasury to re
ceive his double-eagles for greenbacks
a good deal of gun and bunting for a
small matter, bix month ago, how the
f oea of resumption would have laughed,
or any of the rest of us for that matter,
to be told that at the close of the first
day of specie paymenis tbe Government
would have a larger gold reserve than a
its opening! But that was just what oc
curred. During Thursday, only $132,
000 coin waa paid out by the sub-treasury,
while $400,000 in the same money
In mercantile circles the tiny dollar
pieces were eyed suspiciously, and in
some cases were refused point-blank, peo-
le being afraid for their genuineness,
i short, the only trouble connected with
resumption day waa among those who
could not resume either- in gold, green
backs, or small change.
One of the most notable occurrences of
the dsv was the closing of the Gold
Room of the Stock Exchange, a complete
history of which for the past sixteen
years, would make a thrilling volume.
In this room the ever-varying price of
the coin has been made day after day for
all this time, during which it has wit
nessed thousands of transactions involv
ing thousands of millions of money.
Marvelous fortunes hsve been made and
lost within its walls. It war all but de

Some Funeral Customs.
Dkab Mr. Editor : I think that it is
in accordance with the eternal fitness of
things that I should write you another
firivate letter lor the benefit or tne puo
ic A late occurrei-ce or two haa turned
my mind to the subject Indicated above,
and as we live in an age of reform.I bave
wondered whether it would not be well
to suggest a few reforms ia the line of
our mortuary observances. There are
several things to which permit me to call
attention, as being decidedly objectiona
ble in our present funeral usages.
First of all, wo object to carrying the
corpse to the church and exposing it to
the gaze of a multitude. It seems too
much like making a spectacle of the poor
cold mass of clay. It would be far bet
ter to expose it to view only in the house
of mourning, to the few friends who
might wish to take a parting look, and
whose last long glance would be that of
affection and not of curiosity. But ' if
nothing will do but unveiling it to public
gaze, in a public place then we suggest
that the mourners themselves taae weir
farewell in private. Our custom which
at least, expects them to make demon
stration of their grlel in tne presence ox
a crowd, is a needless piece of cruelty.
Sorrow for the dead is a sacred thing.
and we should not compel its exhibition
to gratify our desire to know how much
"they really thought of the deceased."
Then there is another thing to which
we take exception, and that is the vast
amount of eulogy that is often lavished
upon the departed. Perhaps it would be
more accurate to say that we do not ob
ject to the eulogy, but we think that it
comes in in the wrong place. We think
that it ought to come before death. We
are in favor of saying good words to our
friends, and about our friends while they
are yet in the flesh, and in a condition to
appreciate them. While many quote
with approval that precept of Solon:
"Concerning the dead speak nothing but
good," there ia another of Ms precepts
which is too often forgotten, "Kevue not
the living," This is by far the nobler
maxim of the two. There are many
hearts in the dust to-day, that would have
been cheered and encouraged, and that
might have been made to beat longer
than they did, if even a tithe oi the good
words spoken over the comn, had oeen
uttered during life. There are many ton
ers in the household, patiently bearing
their burdens and doing their work, to
whom a few words of appreciation from
those for whom their lives are worn out.
would be better than gold. There are ma
ny laborers for the public good, whose
lives are spent in the interests oi human'
ity, whose deeds are unnoticed until
those who wrought them have gone, dy
ing perhaps with the feeling that they
had lived in vain. But at their graves it
is discovered that they have been public
benefactors, and their work is lauded in
terms of warmest commendation. But
what is it worth now to him whose ears
are closed forever? We believe, then.
that all just and merited praises should
be used, not to gild the coffin, but to
brighten life's daily pathway.
There is yet another thing in our pres
ent funeral us acres that we desire to en
ter a protest against, and that is the
fashion of wearing mourning. We ob
ject to it because it is merely a fashion.
and a fashion without any rational basis,
The amount of black in which we shroud
ourselves is no sign of the amount of
grief we feel at our friend's departure.
And then when we relapse into hall-
mourning is it an indication that our
grief ia now only half as great as when
we wore full mourning? And then when
the sombre garb haa been laid entirely
aside, does it show to the world that our
friend has passed entirely from mind and
that we are no longer sorry that he was
taken away? Is this the philosophy of
wearing mourning? If not then what is
it? We fear it will be difficult to discov
er. We fear that there is no philosophy
in it. We fear that it is like a groat
many other dictates of fashion a mere
caprice. We can not, certainly, adopt
the theory that a suit of mourning is in
tended to be a sort of thermometer of
the state of the affections, to let the world
know from time to time, at what point
our sorrow for the dead stands. But we
object to it again, because it imposes up
on many poor families an expense which
they are ill able to bear. 8- long as it ia
the fashion they feel that they must have
these clothes as weU as anybody else.
So indeed they mnst, unless they want
to. excite comment in the community,and
be looked upon by other people as being
extremely heartless and not caring for
their friends. The money thus expended
is often needed by these poor people to
buy food to prevent their own funerals
from being next in order.
Now, Mr. Editor, when wa find that
everybody is acting upon the suggestions
here made as of course they will we
may point out a few more objectionable
features in our funeral customs.
Oberlin, Ohio, Dec. 23, 1878.
In A Lumberman's Camp.
By one of those sudden reverses of for
tune that occur through no fault of the
victim, a Michigan lumberman and mill
owner, and his wife find themselves this
winter in the heart of the pine woods
with a mill and a small army of hands,
as they express it "sawing their way out
to daylight again."
The husband an accomplished machin
ist and mechanic, and the wife fluent in
mathematics and French conjugations,
and disciplined by years of experience
as a teacher, has heretofore proved that
bralus also help amazingly in tho ready
learning and prudent management of
household and business interests, and
preserves the happy balance, attaining
both comfort and economy.
We copy, without, permission, the fol
lowing extract from a private letter:
"We number nearly half a hundred in
the mixture we call our family. Some
hunters are stopping with us just now.

as common as beef here and not half as
