Spring, who was making her a call.
" I'se.had a good many crotchety hoard'

to tell what, IjiU nothing of any conse

"He did! Vhy, Mrs. Parker!' He

I should look more natreller after I was

" To lie sure 'tis. Your friends would
feel so much better. I think we ort to
consider cur friends iu such cases."
The conversation was stopped by the
cntrance'of the, subject of it, Mr. Stark
himself. He was a good looking man
of twenty-eight or thirty, wjtli a slight
stoop in the shoulders, and a grave, pre
Mrs. Parker took hoarders, and Mr.
Stark had occupied her best front cham

come to Kawdon for the purpose of pur

villages had its gossips, and it was'not

Mr. Stark was devoted to' his science,
sotrl and body, ne slept uio3t of the
time by day, and nights he wandered
about the country making observations
of tlie heavenly bodies. He .carried
with liim a telescope as large, as a mod-
crate sized stove pipe, and put it up on
every hill he, came to, and.tooka squint
at the heavens.
Miss Patty .Flanders, the village
school mistress, boarded at Mrs. Tar

The remainder of his speech was lost
upon his auditor she rose angrily and
Mr. Stark wondered why women did
not take any more interest iu science.
" It showed very plainly their inferiori
ty to men," he said to himself."
So he went of to Glassmer Hill with
his telescope, to tako observations. He
made a practice o going thither al
most every night. Scarcely had he got
his telescope arranged, for a squint at
the Great Bear, overtliechlmiicy of the

" I'll make you decline, aud youf gun

tion, to tlie word, she thrust the broom
stick into the muzzle of the telescope.
This was txx) much. Stark seized her
by the arm to give her a shake but it
was an unlucky movement. for him. She
closed with him, and in two minutes he
lay prone on the ground and the wid
ow was sitting on his stomach, and as
he had eaten a hearty supper of boiled
tripe, the sensation produced by the
weight wa anything but agreeable.

" On your honor?"
"Yes, yes, on anything."
.Mrs. Glassmer arose, and 3Ir, Stark
seizing "his telescope, lied for home at
the top of his speed.

You are responsible for the success of

trolling ascendency of national power.

through a force policy identified with
diplomacy, and creating- "Berlin" the
"London" money center of the world,

and foreign peace policy. While thti:
Germany and America seek distinct
modes of government for peoples one

the other presidents of the people, NaT
lions look on, jealous and alarmed for
the future. Gennanv, through 'Bis-
mark, moves in an undercurrent pur
pose; America openly raises her peace
standard at Geneva. While England
sees in the meeting of three emperors a
purpose to reduce her to an "acknowl
edged second rate power, America may
sec in it not only a design for practical
support of German power, but an at
tack, upon liberal forms of government.
Germany, through her wise "Bis
marck" and shrewd "Schurtz," now
works in the American. Congress aud
with the people to aid German progress.
A change of the American Constitution
if first proposed to make Schurtz eligi
ble as a candidate for President. A rev
olutionary move is then inaugurated,
through an invitation to the disappoin
ted of the Republican war power of
Congress to a convention"; to which Is
added the heretofore pronounced trait
ors of the nation, and Horace Greeley
Is nominated for .President. Senator
Schurtz then a3ks German voters to re
pudiate their allegiance, and support a
revolutionary movement, promising to
lie more fatal to the cause of Libertj-
than was the firing upon Fort Sumter
to the Union.
The time lias come fgr all Americans
to take an active part in tlie presiden
tial campaign. President Grant is now
identified with a peace reconstruction
policy, headed by the acknowledged
loyal. Horace Greeley, with a war-disunion
policy, supported by the revolu
tionary and declared disloyal.
During the American conflict, it is
known that I opposed the policy of tlie
Lincoln government. I advocated the
constitutional jurisdiction of the South
over slaver-, yet favored the freedom
of the slave. I maintained the right of
the South to differ with the'Xorth as to
the continuation of a union of tlie
States yet was a Union man. I op
posed the sword as a means to settle
these difl'erenccs, urging conciliation as
a just and reasonable mode to secure
constitutional rights to the South, and
stay the How of blood. My efforts were
unsuccessful. General Lee finally sur
rendered. Reconstruction has pro
gressed amid tlie murmuring3 of a con
quered people desiring a restoration to
national control. What is to be done
I answer, until complete reconstruction
is secured, the cause of liberty, con
tinued peace, and freedom of the slave,
demands prolongation of tlie, govern
ment at Washington, with a southern
statesman in the Cabinet, agreeable to
the southern people. The unquestion

Greeley on the German Vote.
In.his speech at Sunbury, Pa., Sep
2C, 1S72. Greeley used the following
language : .
"They tell U3 we may carry Indiana
and' Pennsylvania, but cannot carry
Ohio. I tell you it is not so. Wc have
a very large Liberal Republican vote
there, besides the German vote, which
is nearly solid for us, and of which
there are many, many thousands, and at
least 1.1,000 who have always voted the
I.epubllcan ticket are now among the
most enthusiastic supporters of the Lib
eral ticket. Of your own State I need
not speak; you know what the heart of
Pennsylvania is. She has always de
sired to have honest, faithful, frugal,
trustworthy rulers, though she has not
always succeeded. She ha3 meant to
have them, and I am contldent'ehe will
Does Mr. Greeley still hold the opin
ion that the German, vote is still solid
for this forlorn movement? It is about
time that Horace came, to tlie conclu
sion that the Germans are about as i!ens
ible as any 'other class of citizens. Thcy
do their own thinking, and vote as thcy
plcase. To say that the German cle
ment of the Republican party followed
Greeley in his desertion is to underrate
not only their patronism, but their in
telligence. A few leading Germans
followed Grecley,bnt they lost their in
fluence when they went over. The Ger
mans are not much given to man wor
ship.. They judge men by their acts
not by the noise they create. We trust
that the late elections will convince Mr.
Greeley that he has just the same chance
among the Germans that he has among
the natives.- When he comes to that
conclusion he may settle down to some
profitable work. The time lias come in
the present canvass when Greeley can
afford to be honest iu his opinions.
Horace 'On the Home Stretch.'
The Xew York Tribune of Wednes
dry, October 8, after presenting a re
arrangement of the patent list of tlie
electoral vote which gives the election
to Greeley and Brown, concludes by
saying, "That assures it. Friends ! in
spite of .fraud we are .on thehotne stretch."
Xow, 'isn't that good? Isn't it refresh
ing? An'd tb beauty of the whore mat
ter is it is' true. Of course they are on
the home, stretch. Horace has received
an assurance in the verdict rendered by
the vote of the 8th of October that he
can have the whole next four ears to
stay at home aud stretch himself all he
wants to. Stretch! Why he can stretch
till he draws his pants out of his boots,
and splits that bid white coat from col-
ar to coat-tall. The underdone young
man, who is -running tne "organ,"
which'is not an organ," and who is a
professor of journalism, is improving.
He is more like Mark Twain now than
George Washington, lie eould tell a lie,
but wouldn't, lie owns right up.
The way it Works
At a Democratic meeting held in
Macon, Georgia, nfew days befo re the
State election, .the following resolution
.was, presented by a-Mr. Best, aud unan
imoushj, adopeted :
"Eesohed, That no voter be allowed
