Rob Roy, Fointain Co., Im., July
J". "When the slow moving weekly
papers first brought to this remote
rural region the news that '-one of our
JOHN WESLEY BOOKWALTKIt,
had been nominated for Governor of
O., there was first a pause of astonish
ment, then a laugh, and fi nally an ex
pression of pride and satisfaction. It
;s worth nothing that the pride and
satisfaction camo last and are most
permanent, for, despite many criti
cisms, John was well liked by his ear
ly associates as well, indeed, a3 a
rather odd genius could be in a re
mote, rather slow, and decidedly back
woodsy neighborhood. It is a won
der to mo, after an acquaintance of a
quarter of a century, how he could be
popular as he was, or even tolerated ;
for he was about as unlike the average
boy among the '-Dutch Hoosiers" as a
young Hindoo would be. His rela
tives about hero aro all Republicans,
and generally Methodists; yet strange
to say, this very neighborhood ha3
been prolific of Democratic greatness.
Ueside3 Bookwalter, and a dozen men
only localyl eminent, Daniel Y. Yoor
liees was born and reared but five
miles from here. It would only be
the proper thing for the Senator to go
over to Ohio and help his fellow
" "Shawnee" through the campaign.
"Twig the egotism," and 1 will add
that my own, my native township was
half a day's drive south of this; and
among my earliest recollections is the
hearing of ridiculous stories, not often
refined, about the "Pennsylvania
Dutch" and other queer residents on
the Shawnee and theWea 1'lains.
Our people were nearly all from the
South, and through this county ran
that mysterious line of division which
can even now be traced across the
State of Indiana, south of which are
Southern ideas, and north of it Yan
kee ideas. It was not till 1857 that I
was personally acquainted with the
"BOOK WALTER BOYS.
Between our section and theirs at
that time was a strip of very unprom
isms countrv. familiarly known as
"Hell's Half Acre," into which the
militia made an occasional march dur
ing the war. North, of it -was the
Yankee and Pennsylvanian country,
in which tlio Bookwalters lived.
It is foreign to tho subject, but I
can not forbear a few paragraphs
about our predecessors here the
Shawnees (Chaouanons,) whose histo
rv is as fascinating as any romance
in border fiction. This tribe origina
ted in Western New York by a seces
sion and expulsion from an older
tribe. Thence they fought their way
westward and down the Wabash,
from which they were driven by the
conquering. Miams. Determined to
find a permanent home they went to
the Tennessee valley, from which they
were again driven, this time by the
Cherokees, and settled in Honda.
where they nave name to the Suwanee
River. After forty years in Florida
thov were again driven, and started
north in three bands; two of these
were scattered, but the third reached
this neighborhood and were given a
resting place by the other Indians
Shawnee Creek and Tairie were
their southern boundaries, and from
here to Tippecanoe was the original
range of their noted chief Tecumtha
(commonly called Tecumseh.) "When
he went to his final reward this region
was open to settlement, and soon re
ceived a heavy immigration from New
Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Ohio
among whom were the Van Gundys
and Bookwalters. Big and Little Shaw
nee, near the Wabash, a mile apart,
and on the high level between the
two, in the dense primeval woods,
made his location about titty years
ago. He was a Pennsylvanian by
"birth, but lived sometime in Ross
County, 0., where he married Miss
Aran Gundy, just before coming here.
They had five children, all of whom
are living, John being the second.
Here the father erected a large stone
house, which was long a curiosity to
travelers; also an oil mill, sawmill,
and other buildings. The white
"Shawnees" must have had a rather
tough time of it, by all accounts, as
they had to wrestle with ague four
months in the year, and with stubborn
nature all the time. The old Book
waiter was a rather severe father,
too, and of a decidedly Puritanical
caei of mind. He was so scrupulous
ly honest that like the negro's poplar,
'he leaned over the other way" en
tirely too perpendicular. He '; had the
idea, unfortunately too common
among farmers, that a boyeaa never
. do too rnnch, and that all you1 tan get'
cue or one is cleat gain. - tie was a
frightfully consientious Methodist, set
his face against all worldly amuse
ments, disapproved of music, and in
his own words, "despised tinkering."
And as John loved music, loved "tink-
ring" with machinery, was anything
eise Dy nature but a Methodist, and
never bad time to tell whether he
liked bard work or not, but probably
did not, you may judge what sort of a
time be had.
The three boy, Francis, John, and
William, obtained only tho common
i education in the very common schools
! of that day, but John and Frank very
early manifested a remarkable;iove lor
mathematics and machinery. They
had to work in fa.r weather on the
farm, and run the sawmill when it
rained, so their spare hours must have
been few indeed. Nevertheless they
contrived to set in operation more
curious machines than I can describe,
of which a thousand funny 6toriesare
still told in the vicinity. It is a Biiigu
lar fact that
so called, repeat the same errors from
generation to generation; so it will
excite no surprise to learn that John
very earlv conceived the idea of. a
perpetual motion, and spent many
weary hours trying to make it go. aim
it is needless to add that it proved a
dismal failure. His next attempt was
at what tho neighbors call a "musical
wheel, ' though I can not deterrnine
what it was from their description
The motive power was tho current of
Shawnee Creek, and when it was 6et
going tho wheel, thev say, "made a
racket you could hear a mile. bev
eral travelers by night were terribly
frightened by this contrivance, liut
it proved a very indifferent sort of
music. Speaking of music, I well re
member my first visit to the big stone
house, as tho Bookwalter residence
was called. It was a sultry Sunday
evening; when I was retiring there
was a rise in the wind and the queer
old house was suddenly filled with a
strange unearthly music, sweet
enough, but strangely monotonous and
mournful- My nerves were calmed
when I found that John had been ex
perimenting on the Aeolian harp,
and had all the windows of our room
set with wires and with horse hair.
Finally, when Frank and John were
respectively twenty and eighteen years
of age, the father concluded it was idle
to contend against fate, and offered
them a vear's education in science.
They chose they scientific department
at Ann Arbor," Mich., and there we
roomed in the same house and were
intimate companions for a college year.
John's great hobby then was electrici
ty, and it would occupy me for days to
describe the curious machines he man
ufactured and set up about our rooms.
Onehowever, was so simple and ef
fective that it deserves special mention.
A disk about eighteen inches wide was
set in frame with pinions and crank so
it could be revolved rapidly; on each
side pieces of cat skin about four
inches square were fastened so as to
press with some force on the revolving
disk, and by this friction the electricty
was generated. To collect it he naa
two mental poin'U on a wire, which
was inserted in a bottle through a non
conducting stopper, the bottle coated
with tinfoil, or something of the, sort.
It was the standing joke to charge the
bottle thoroughly and apply it to the
unsuspecting visitor, and many a
'freshman' of that year has been raised
of his chair with disgusting sudden
ness, giving utterance to a bawl which
startled the neighborhood. Finally
he brought his electrical machines to
such prefection that 'it was dangerous
to be safe: anywhere about the house.
If a careless student threw himself on
the lounge and fell into a nap, some
body was sure to turn on the catskin.'
The bottle would bo highly charged
and applied to his heels, and irom a
heavenly dream the victim would
spring up with an unearthly yell. It
is not surprising that loungers soon
became wary, and the room of the
Bookwalter boys was considered a
good place to stay away from. But
like most enthusiast, John finally over
did the thing. Having completed an
electric machine of great power, in at
tempting to discharge the bottle he
accidently received the whole 'load' in
his own system. It
KNOCKED HIM SPEECHLESS
for a minute or so, and on recovering
he concluded that nothing new was to
be discovered in electricity and turned
his attention to telescopes.
It seems incredible now, but with no
tools but a brace, and auger, and a
pocket knife, no materials but emery,
a piece of seasoned wood, and such
bits of glass as he could pick up, he
manufactured a pocket telescope of
considerable power. Ho ground out
the glasses himself, with emry and
wax, by the use of his brace: and with
his usual enthusiasm was proceeding
to demonstrate that everybody was
mistaken on the subject of opties, when
the year ended and he had to go home.
His father died soon after. John and
Frank took charge of the mill, and
this gave them an achievement in this
section. This was the celebrated tele
I can not describe in detail this
really remarkable work. The tube
was fourteen feet long, and this they
bored out at their own mill,' from sea
soned lumber. The smaller glasses
they ground out, and bought the large
ones by order from Philadelphia They
mounted this telescope in the front
yard, and it is easy to understand that
such, a preformance greatly excited the
simple residents of our valley. Many
a time in .my journeys along the w a
bash; fifty miles from here, I have
heard people speak with curiosity and
pride of them 'two Country boys up
in Fountain Co , who set up a real
telescope.' But the . Jackod various
mechanical and scientific devices to
make their telescope useful, so it1 was
dismounted, and to day the old tube,
or 'shell,' as the people called it, lies
by the garden fence. But it wu a
curious and tuirgeativ fact that two
country boyc should develooiuch an
idea, ana still more that they should
carry it out
About this time John became in
tensely interested in
ami when we met he put in many
Lours lieiuODstrating that such a ma
chine waa practicable, but he might as
well have talked Hebrew as far as my
understanding was concerned. I only
remember one point he made, viz.:
that the larger the bird the less sweep
of wing it has in proportion. Thus
the huming bird has ten times as much
wing surface in proportion to . its
weight as tee buzzard, Hence, said
John, it is conclusive that the great
need of the bird is not power to rise
from the ground but power to contend
with air currents. So the lighter the
bird the more sweep of wig it needs.
It would give the 100.000 readers of
the Gazette the headache to coppy the
diagaams and calculations he had
made on this subject, and I don't
know a it has anything to do with the
Governorship of Ohio. Suffice it to
say that he proved, to his own satis
faction, that it would be very easy for
a man to rise into the air and sustain
himself there, but when it camo to
contending with the air currents he
could see noway to make it. He still
occupies an occasional leisure hour
with this subject, and who know?
peahaps he will vet make it a success.
Perhaps Ohio will enjoy the proud
distinction of having an inventor Gov
ernor, who will slove the vexed prob
lem of human levitation. It would be
rich and unique to see the Governor's
offico full of mechanical geniuses, and
the odd corners filled with mechanical
models. It might even come to pass
that 'Gov. Bookwalter s inauguration
would be rendered illustrious by flight
from the dome of the capitol to the

but you must pardon us if Western
Indiana admits that she would take
pride in his success. As Republicans

Hoosiers, we could stand it if he won,
are worthy of scientific study. Hex
bert Spencer, in his 'Study of Sociolo
gy,' has set lorth, with cunons detail
the force of various biases: The 'Re
ligious Bias,' 'Bias of Patriotism,
Emotional Bias', etc. He also shows
how reaction Irom either of these
makes another bias. Now, I. refer the
reader to that essay for an explanation
of John W. Bookwalter's politics... His
present views are simply the result of
an intense reaction from the puritani
cal Methodism of David Bookwalter,
the anti-slavey, anti-Southern fuforjif
1854-GS, and the intense and unreas
onable dread of the South, which pre
vailed iron 1803 to 1872. And to-f.

Selecting Seed Corn.
Our great national crop is Indian
corn, and anything that will improve
that crop is of vast importance,
Much may be done to improve the
quality and increase the yield by the
thorough and systematic selection of
the seed to be planted. It is not
enough to p lant plump grains, sepera-
ted from the smaller ones bv means of
a sieve. The work of selection should
begin while the plants are yet grow
ing, and choosing those stalks that are
of vigorous growth and the size and
shape to furnish the best quality of
fodder. Thev should be well eared-
by this is not understood that the
larger the number of ears found the
better it is; also early enough to com
plete growth before frosts come, etc,
The ears should be well formed, small
at the butt that they may be broken
off with ease in husking; the husks
should be soft and loose when ripe.
and the cob covered with grain to the
very tip, or as it termed, "well filled
out." The stalks that are to furnish
the seed for next year's planting
should have abundant space and the
best chance for the perfect growth
Anything that will increase the vitali
ty, that is the life of the grain, will be
felt in the coming crop.
