A NEW DISCOVERY!
The question of questions,
with thelearned and unlearned,
the materialist, scientist,, re
ligionists, and in tact every
body, is "What is , Modern
Spiritualism?" Is it a verity or
is it all a humbug ? Can it be
explained from a physiological
standpoint and does it come
under the head of Physics, or
does it come from supernatural
causes and without laws or order.-
That the phenomena ex
ists, is beyond dispute, whether
it will ever be explained re
mains to be seen. That some
spirits can be seen, handled

vantage as well as explained is
also a fact to which all drug

has many other things in which
it seeks to make itself useful

male costume, near the road, pitching off load of
hay from wagon on to a suck, with such apparent
ease and rapidity, my curiosity was somewhat excited,
snd on passing the spot observed that it was a girl of
16 or 18 summers, with no wasp waist (and unlike our
American girls almost cut In twain with corset) wis

at the foot of the above lake, and spending several
days with friends and relutives here, improved the
opportunity in examination of the splendid water

flouring mills (from recollection) eight or nine in
number, with capacity from two to four hundred bar
rels of flour each per day, and many other manufac
tories of pine lumber and wooden ware, one of
which (and the largest) is entirely devoted to paila,
tnba, churns, etc., employing 200 hand, turning out
Ge'OO pieces daily, each piece, commencing with the
stave after being kiln dried ready for1 nse, passes
through over thirty hands nnd machines, each per
forming their particular part before finished and
packed for shipment. The painting, graining and
varnishing are done by attaching each pail or tub to a
machine, and (riven a whirl, each in their order pur-
forming the job instantaneously, or in one-tenth part
of the time it takes to write it. Hence the secret of
the low price of these goods as retailed at our Coun
try stores, and the people arc reaping the benelit of
these manufactories without a proper nppreciation
of their benefactors. These twin cities are built upon
two outlets or rivers from this lake emerging into one
some distance below, known as Fox river emptying in
to Green Bay on Lake Michigan some twenty-five miles
below. These two branches from the lake forms an
island of some l'i.OOO acres embraced in these twin

the large and shady park of native grounds accessible

as the council-tree, where the Indians held their coun

From our Regular Correspondent.
Washington, August 15, 1881.
While the dullness of mid-summer bos
lately pervaded the National Capital there
has been rather more to occupy attention
than usual at this season. The anxiety
over the condition of the President has
overshadowed everthing else for six
weeks, and though Goverment business
has not been at a standstill, it has, never
theless, been considerably lost sight of
except to those directly interested. But
with all their watching and the absence
of customary consultations, the Cabinet
officers have found time to attend to
their duties, as well as to take a few
breathing spells between bulletins, and
the current business has not fallen be
hind. In the Post Office Department
there is about as much activity as ever
and the proceedings in room 59 are said
to be as mysterious if not interesting as
ever. The preparations of the star route
cases to be presented to the Grand Jury
next month will be very elaborate. These
cases promise to furnish a series of State
trials more important and interesting
than anything of the kind since the ar
raignment Belknap for selling post trader
borne of the accused profess to believe
that there will be no trials, and their
organs here are very spiteful, but it is
dimcult to see upon what ground tney
base any such exception. There will be
trial and strong evidence produced
Every unbiased man, woman or child
will be convinced that their is undoubt
edlv guilt; yet there may not be any con
viction. Ex-Senator Dorsey appears to
have vanishod from public view. At
least he shows a desire to do so and has
gone off down into Now Mexico or some
where in that direction. tJoor Dorsey!
What a fall was there I Is it not a warn
ing. From being feted and feasted as the
hero or a campaign ana the saviour ot
Indiana, to a hunted outcast accused of
theft and robbery. ' A friend who knows
Dorsey well, told me when the exposure
first came that the Ex-Senator's skin was
very thick; that ho would not feel much
hurt provided he escaped. But from all
I can learn he does feel it and is comnlele
ly broken and wrecked. Brady shows
much the greater thickness of Bkin, for
he stays here, buys newspapers to argue
him into an honest man while they abuse
the admistration and every one connect
ed with the prosecution.
Secretary Kirkwood's big Indian pow
wow assembles here in a few days. It
will be a peculiarly interesting gathering
of the noble red men. The object of the
council 's to investigate, and discuss
charges that have been made at various
times that unauthorized persons, Ameri
cans and foreigners, have been engaged
in furnishing several of the Western
tribs with arms and ammunition. In
the event of the charges being sustained
and the indications are that they will be,
the'Goverment will take immediate steps
to secure an indemnity for all who have
suffered by such action. "Dr." J. S
Cannon, chief guide and interpreter for
the United States, has been engaged in
working this matter up for more than a
year past and has collected a large amount
ot evidence. Delegations trom nine trios,
representing about ninety thousand In
dians, have been summoned to attend the
big council and some of t he most promi
nent chiefs are expected. Spotted Tail
was to have been among them had not
Crow Dog's bulled interfered with his
plans. The twelve hundred Indian chil
dren at the Carlisle School will also be
here. It will be the biggest pow-wow
ever held here.
At this season of the year when hens
are off their reservation.invading the gar
dens of peacefel people in order to hunt
the wild earth-worm and the timid grub,
the amount of injury inflicted upon the
vegtables and tempers of men probably
exceeds that caused by Indians on the
frontier. And it has just occured to us
that the Government has no hen policy.
It simply ignores the existence of hens
and turns a deaf ear to their wild war
whoops and the indignant language of
their victims. While we have an Agri
cultural Bureau where much brain and
money has been expended upon experi
ments in raising boiled potatoes and
growing granulated sugar, why should
we not have a Hen Department that
would give attention to producing a breed
of hens capable of laying soft-boiled or
scrambled eggs. We have too, an Indian
policy which is the pride of our civiliza
tion. In the Winter the Indians, like
the hens, must remain in their wigwams
and be fed. The Indian Bureau feeds
them and keeps them warm, and in the
Spring when, like the hen. they go forth
upon the war-path to prey upon the sett
ler and destroy his substance, they are
furnished with guns and mildly invited
to come back next Winter and get some
This lack of a hen policy is unquestion
ably due to a want of perception on the
part of the Govermnnt of one of the fin
est opportunities' ever offered to enter
prising politicans. If we had a Hen
Bureau what a wealth of new offices
would be opened to earnest '.'workers"
and what splendid fortunes would be
placed within the reach of true states
men? Suppose the Government were to
assume the management of all the tribes.
Theie would.be room for houtands of hen
agents whose duty it would be to supply
the hens under their charge with corn,
worms and other necessaries of life. If
every agent sold for his own benefit only
two-thirds of the corn, designed for the
use of the hens, he could grow rich in a
few years and feel the proud satisfaction
of having abstained from imitating the
gro38 rapacity ot Indian agents. The
Government could keep hens on their re-
serrations. Contracts for buildinc coops j
and putting up roosting pole could be I
made a source of blessing and profit to i
ferine for the want of a few hundred I
thousands of dollars, and w ho can at pres

At about 12 o'clock yesterday, on the
farm of G. PHefer, four miles north

a threshing machine exploded, killing
three men and wounding oi.e boy. All
the men were washing tbeir hands pre-
Earatory to dinner, excepting W. H.

a young boy George Gill, who remained
at the place of work.

tor, and tne boy standing- near watcning
the men working. The explosion was
through the fire arch, which threw
engine and hind trucks over the butt of
the wheat stack six feet high, some eigh
ty five feet. Mr. Gill was thrown about-
eighty-five feet, badly scalded and killed
Mr. Norton was thrown m the same
direction as Mr. Gill. He was badly
scalded and landed 65 feet from where
the engine stood. Mr. Hess was struck
by a piece of the engine, cutting his
head open and throwing tbe brains over
the straw. Little George Gill was
thrown about ten or fifteen feet being
badly scalded, but not thought danger
ously. The engine is almost a total wreck.
It seems strange that knowing the dan
ger of being careless where steam is,
that for the cause of pouring cold water
into the boiler three lives were lost.
