A great many teachers from all parts
of the coimty attended the last Teach

pronounced very fine.
The recent dance in John "Wagner's
bam, given in honor of Burton's victo

John "Wagner and A. Karl have built
themselves new barns, and Mr. Karl
has made an addition to his dwelling,
which adds much to the appearance of
his fine farm.
This is the busiest season Detroit
ever had in her history. J. & L. Lamb
are selling immense piles of goods at
low prices; Miss Vail is doing a good
business at her store; Uncle Sam Os
good is handling great quantifies of
grain; Vail's steam elevator is kept
miming far into the night to handle
the big amount of trade that E. S. does,
and Ketchum still holds the fort.

One of -Mijr Risley's children caught
fire to its clothing and started for the
house, about 300 yards distant, which
aggravated the fire of course, and by
the time it reached the house the fire
had consumed considerable of the cloth

it is hoped not seriously.
Our lawyer, whom the ' 'educated rat"
drove off a short time since, returned
Saturday last with the intention to lo
cate here in spite of the -'educatedrat."
The lawyer says he will stay this time
or he will give Mr. Rat what the re

Once more the wheat fields of the

"Wheat never looked better at this time
of the year, and bright prospects in the
future are looked for.
Corn husking will be delayed some in
consequence of large quantities of wheat
to be threshed and the many buildings
in the state of erection, which occupies
the time of the farmers at present.
This part of Dickinson the people, as
a rule, are well satisfied with the result
of the recent election; and it is no more
than just that Abilene should have the
honor of having the Democratic State
and Congressional Conventions. This
thing should be urged through the
columns of the Reflector and by the
member of the State Central Committee
from Abilene. It would receive due
consideration from your humble ser
vant, who is a member of the Congres
sional Committee. My reasons for ad
vancing this at this early date are, that
we may have time to urge Abilene's
claim, that we have a first class demo
cratic paper, large and extensive hotel
accommodations, and that" it would be
to the interests of the business men and
citizens generally to encourage the same
for beneficial results.

country. The mere fact that he stands
alone among the justices of the Supreme
court will have no influence to weaken
him with the colored people, whose
views he expressed. The only Republi
cans in the South are colored Republi
cans, if we except the handful of car
pet baggers who fill the federal offices
of that region.. The Southern states
will have 306 of the S20 delegates who
will compose the next Republican na
tional convention, and if the colored
people will agree together and assert
their power they can elect every one of
these 306 delegates for Harlan.
"What other candidate has any chance
of going into the convention with any
thing like that number of supporters?
Blame never received anything like that
many votes in the Chicago convention,
and Grant's following, as shown by the
famous bronze medals, amounted to just
But Harlan's strength would hardly
be confined to the south. The district
plan of representation will obtain in the
next national convention and there are
several congressional districts in the
nortn in which the colored voters would
be able to dictate their own terms on an
issue like this. Besides why should
not New England, Ohio, Iowa, Kansas,
Nebraska and Illinois, which have al
ways professed such warm affection for
the colored people, elect delegates
pledged to vote for Harlan, the friend
of the colored people, for president?
There are vast possibilities in Har
lan's candidacy. If the colored citizens
can compel his nomination, and they
can if they will only stick together in
the south, they will become a vast pow
er in the Republican party and if he is
elected they can count with confidence
upon receiving a fair share of the pat
ronage of the administration for the en
suing four years.
Harlan and Harmony should be the
rallying cry of the colored people henceforth.
An Elegant Performance.

One of 'Squire Jones' sons met with
a serious accident last Saturday by fall
ing from a loaded wagon and the wheel
passing over liim. Dr. Colley was called
and the injuries properly attended to.
The boy is now on the mend and will

A little son of II. Graham met with
a misfortune last Monday while at
school. "While some of the boys were
playing with an ax, in some way he re

severing three leaders. Dr. Colley
dressed the wound.
"Although the typical American is
rather a sober fellow, and educates his
face into an expression of habitual
gravity, there is no one who sees more
quickly than he the point of a joke, or
who carries in his soul a keener appre
ciation of fun. It is this popular fond
ness for joke and absurdity that has
made the lighter orders of comedy so
attractive to the people, and has given
to the stage a galaxy of "comic profes-

duced in the world.
The drama of the "Hidden Hand,"
as presented at the Academy of Music
last evening by "Whiteley's Original
Hidden Hand company, was a fair sam
ple of this bright and attractive school
of entertainment, while the immense
audience that crowded the house to
witness the exhibition would seem to
fully sustain our declaration. The
play, upon its mere literary mer
its, is a good one; but assisted by
the combined talent of the splendid
company it brought to its support last
evening, it seemed to fairly bum with
interest, or bristle with witticism from
the beginning to the close. The beauti
ful songs of Capitola were of themselves
worth the price of admission, wliile in
the absurdities of "Wool, or the droll
petulance of the irritable Hurricane,the
spectator fomid no point at which either
his interest or his amusement seemed to
languish until the curtain fell upon the
closing scene. The company is a good
one thoroughly equipped m all its ap
pointments, and has achieved a popu
larity as wide as it is deserved." Iowa

Harlan to the Front.
Much stranger things have happened
in American politics than that Justice
Harlan's dissent from the decision ren
dered by his eight associates, declaring
the Civil Rights bill unconstitutional,
should make that gentleman the Re
publican nominee for president next
Look at the possibilities. Justice Har
lan's views will certainly be endorsed
by the entire colored population of the
Governor Glick in Chicago.
Governor G. "W. Glick, of Kansas, is
at the Sherman with Mrs. Glick, hav
ing come to Chicago to attend the cattle
show. To a reporter for the Tribune
he said last evening that the democrats
had made substantial gains in recent
county elections in Kansas. ""We car
ried," he continued, "counties that we
never did before, electincr our entire
county tickets. When I defeated St.
John I carried a number of localities
that gave a majority for the rest of the
republican ticket. This time some of
these counties went democratic from
top to bottom. It was the case in Rus
sel, Ford and several others."
"Will the prohibition question come
up next year?"
"I think so. The prohibitionists say
they will keep up the fight and will
nominate a prohibition republican for
governor next year on a prohibition
platform. They are a majority of the
republican party of Kansas and control
the convention. Whether they can win
with it remains to be seen. I am not a
candidate for re-election and do not
care to make another race. One term
is glory enough for me. "We will make
an aggressive fight next year and will
go hi to win. The state has been re
districted into seven congressional dis
tricts and we expect to carry at least
two of them. The first, containing the
cities of Atchison and Leavenworth, I
am confident we can carry, and there is
a fair prospect of defeating Haswell in
the Lawrence district. lie is a strong
protectionist and does not suit the peo
ple on this issue. Free trade clubs have
been organized all over his district and
they are mainly run by republicans."
"Whom do the Kansas democrats fa
vor for president?"
"I am in favor of Joe McDonald. I
think it should be a western man, and
he seems the most available one in sight.
McDonald and Hewitt would be about
the right thing, in my judgment."
