J. W. HOUGHTON, M. II. HOUGHTON,
The following clipped from a New
Orleans paper, as a straw showing what
it would be to lire in that Democratic
country is significant:
"The public schools will continue
daring the month of November and De-

teachers alaries for those months, and

or walk to their posts of duty, and im

The solemnities of a funeral would
seem to be sufficient to restrain the in-
dalgenceof this cheerful pastime. But
one' might sometimes conclude that no
entertainment could more delight these
spontaneous beings than the deliberate
process of a burial service. If there
might anything occur that would awe or
charm them into silence! Alas, they are
irrepressible desecrators and uncon

Members of churches, professed
Christians, attending services with a de
nomination not their own, do sometimes
so far forget the sacredness of hour and
place, as well as their self-respect and
the courtesy due to others as to assume
no attitude of wo: ship during prayer, and
whisper right through as if prayer was
not prayer except is their own form and
in their own church and as if therefore
they were at perfect liberty to disgrace
themselves and disturb, others, away
from their church home.
Until there is less annoyance from the
social proclivities of human nature,
churches may without fear of formalism
go on instituting and contending for
"innovations" that ultimately tend to the
promotion cf decency and order.

Mrs. Houohtoh: Having reached the
end of my journey and being quite set
tied. I will jot down some of the inci
dents by the way while they are fresh
my mind. I have never been so mucn
impressed with the great contrast be
tween the North and the South, as iu my
last trip in passing from one to the oth
er, and in so short a time, just crossing
the Ohio River. I think crossing the
ocean would not make one leei more
thoroughly in another country. A for
eigner who did not know the history of
the two sections, wculd be ssdly puzzled
for the cause of so sodden a transition.
In passing from Wellington to Cincin
nati. the little villages and large towns
are so closely connected that they hard
ly seem to need but one name, and that
would be Ohio City all the way through
while the many beautiful churches, nest
looking school houses, college buildings,
etc. be i-peak an educated Christian peo
ple. Then not only the thrifty look of
the country shows culture snd reane
ment, but the general appearance of the
people. Through Ohio it seemed to me
the passengers on that train were just
from church conventions, associations,
and temperance meetings, aa the conver
nation was principally on those . themes
(as it was after election, politics seemed
taking a rest.)
Leaving Cincinnati for Mew Orleans
after securing my ticket, that called for
a first-class car, and found it so till I got
to Louisville, as I was still on the north
side of the Ohio River. There had to
change cars. I passed through one car
and found it crowded with, I hardly
know what, but no vacant seat; passed
on nearly through the next, when a gen
tlemas from the fiorth gave me the hail
of his seat, for which 1 was very- thank
ful. On looking about me, 1 said to
him. "Is this a smoking car?" "Oh, no,'
he said, "but don't you know you have
crossed the Ohio River, now you are In
the land of Southern chivalry." When
the conductor came round, 1 handed
him my ticket and said, "I think that call
for first class car." "Uertaimy, madam.
"WeU " 1 said. -if this la first-class
what would a smoking car be?" He
straightened up, looked about him and
called out, "No smoking allowed in this
car. at which some half dozen or more,
held their cigars down by their sides till

with a laugh at their manners; ana yet

of the case, for in that same car I a
at one time six bottles being passed
about in the different groups, and all
partaking, men and women, and then
little was turned out in their traveling
cups for the children, of what they called

shame. I will not say without a blush,
for some of them did Mush very deeply
before the end of their journey. Then
as the morning light broke in upon us,
what a change presented itself. No more
thrifty looking towns, but as the cars
draw up to the gloomy looking stations
the surroundings consist of one or- two
groceries, where there are always wines
snd liquors advertised, a few straggling
houses with the cnimnies ouut up out
side, from ten to fifteen mules hitched
about that have brought their mulish
looking riders to the station to see the
ears come in. Then if there isany church
in view, surmounting It Is almost always
the unmistakable sign of the Catholic,
but very seldom any appearance of
school-house, and that I think tells -the
story of the great difference in the two
sections of our country, the lack of com
mon school education among all classes.
both white and discs. The whites are
retarded in education by the priestly
rule that overshadows the south like
dark pall, they are so much afraid of the
people being contaminated with frotes-
tantism and especially the Bible instruc
tion. that their dupes are forbidden to
enter any but Catholic schools. The mass
es of the colored people are still under
the iron heel of their oppressors, and
they, I think, generally maintain the
same feeling aa in the former phase of
slavery that education is a dangerous
element for them to poasesa; and now aa
fast aa possible the few public schools
that were established during the abort
rule of the Republicans, are being closed.
Thus you ace our banner or freedom
comes far short yet of sustaining what it
proclaims to In freedom of opinion with
education and its attendant blessings for
all; and who but the Christian women of
our land ia ever to carry on this work of
lifting up and alleviating the woes of the
down-trodden or our own country?
Ought the mothers and sisters to neglect
to give their interest ana sympathy, to
forward the work for which the brothers
and sons have fought, suffered and died?
But I feel that I sha'.l intrude upon you
in writing so much. I am very well, but
quite hurried; the work looms up like a
giant before me. My fellow-worker
from Delaware, is to be here the third
week ia November.

Facts for Politicians. '
It la high time the politicians who are
looking to the South as a reservoir of
party strength, give their attention lo

West and xiorthaeat. , A study 01 Kan
sas, for example, will prove instructive.

progress being but the measure of kin
dred development in Nebraska, Colora
do and others of the Western group.
The figures which tiovernor bt. John
gave in his brief address of welcome to
President Hayea at the opening of th)
Kaasaa State Fair, whi'e without refer
ence to current politics, have, neverthe
less, a significant bearing upon the polit
ical future of th country. Kansas, since
the war, has made no special effort to at
tract immigration; - yet her population
has increased from 133,807 in 1865, to
830,000 in 1879. and the valuation of her
property has risen during thst period
from thirty six to one hrradrad and for tr
five millions of dollars, In round num

then, she boasts of 8.600 miles now
With no permanent school fund then. she

Since 1835 the State bas built a peni-
lemsry, asylums lor the deaf and
dumb and the blind, a State University,
normal school, and agricultural college,
increased the number of school-houses
from 000 to 5,000, and ia now complet
ing a oapttoi ouuaing that would adorn
any of the older states. She has appro
priated money for a reform school, and
will soon have alfc the educational and
reform institutions to be found in the
most advanced communities. All this
has been done without the creation of a
large public debt; it ia but a trifle over a
million of dollars, and all but $343,970
of thst is controlled by the State.
The energy of the people has kept
pace with the progress of the State. In
1865 there were but thirty-five organized
counties: now there are seventy-five.
Then there were but 273,903 acres Of
land under cultivation; now 769,930.
Kansas, in 1865, produced but 291,519
bushels of wheat. This year it is esti
mated the yield will reach 125,000,000
bushels, with 44,000,000 acres of land
yet untouched by the plow. These are
but a few of the more striking figures
illustrating the rspid advance of Kansas
to a front rink among the states.
Imagine what it would have been had
the schemes of the border ruffians of
Western Missouri, sustained by the last
Democratic Administration that dis
graced the country, succeeded, and Kan
sas have been made a alave state.
The secret of this rapid growth and
general prosperity Is to be found in the
fact, well put by Governor St. John, that
Kansas has put no sentinels at her doors
to make politics, birth-place, religion,
race or color a condition precedent to
the right to enter the Bute. "Kansa,"
aaid he, "was planted in freedom, and
freedom's soil produces churches, Bab-bath-schools,
railroads, school houses,
colleges, thriving towns and cities, long
lanes skirted with beautiful farms, news
papers, books and periodicals, and mor
al men and women, who consider it no
disgrace to work for a living."
That tells tie whole story. The men
who rescued Kansas from tie clutch of
the slaveholder, and defended it as the
homestead of freemen; at great peril, for
more than ten years, took with them into
the territory the school-house, the church
and the newspaper, and having made
firm the foundations of the new State,
threw the doors wide open to all who
would come and settle on the broad, fat
acres, making no inquisition into their
past history, and requiring only that they
conform to the laws of the State, aa be
comes good citizens.
Thus Kansas is towering up among
the great States of the Union, with oth
ers close beside her rapidiy following in
her steps. The census of 1880 will make
no revelations more lntere.-ting than
those that statistically illustrate the
grow th of these Western giants. When
they take the representation n which
they will be entitled on the floor of Con
gress, it will be discovered that the po
litical game of a country ruled by the
Solid South and one or two Democratic
Northern States, will be up. These
young and enterprising states, full of
energetic and intelligent men and women
are Republican, and have no sympathy
with a party that is nosing about amongi
the ruins of the Lost Cause for material
out of which it may construct a plitform
and a policy.

Symptoms of a Diseased Liver.
PAIN in the right side, under the
edge of the ribs, increases on pres
sure; sometimes the pain is in the left
side; the atient is rarely able to lie
on the left side ; sometimes the pain is
felt under the shoulder blade, and it
frequently extends to the top of the
shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken
for rheumatism in the arm. The
stomach is affected with loss of appe
tite and sickness; the bowels in gen
eral are costive, sometimes alternative
with lax; the head is troubled with
pain, accompanied with a dull, heavy
sensation in the back part. . There is
generally a considerable loss of mem
ory, accompanied with a painful sen
sation of having left undone some
thing which ought to have been done.
A slight, dry cough is sometimes an
attendant The patient complains of
weariness ana debility; he is easily
startled, his feet are cold or 4urninir.
and he complains of a prickly sensa
tion oi tne skin; his spirits are low;
and although he is satisfied that exer
cise would be beneficial to him, yet
he can scarcely summon up fortitude
enough to try it In fact, he distrusts
every remedy. Several of the above
symptoms attend the disease, but cases
have occurred where few of them ex
isted, yet examination of the body,
after death, has shown the liver to
have been extensively deranged.
AGUE AND FEVER.
Dr. C McLane's Liver Pills, in
cases of Ague and Fever, when
taken with Quinine, are productive of
the most happy results. No better
cathartic can be used, preparatory to,
or after taking Quinine. We would
advise all who are afflicted with this
disease to give them a fair trial.
For all bilious derangements, and as
a simple purgative, they are unequaled.
The genuine are never sugar coated.

and a natural and healthy state exuts after using this great and wonderful prep
