'The curse of slavery has poisoned tbe

held tbe babe up to kiss the lather as be

has not rocked tbe cradle of Democrats.
The chair that the soldier rather nev er tame

Democrats. Tbe old blue coat that bis
comrade-, carried back was cut up for little

Democrat. The rattled musket that fell
from him with bis last shot became the
thoughtless toy of his boys ; but not a hand

There have bsMa for ceaturies doubts a
to the correctness of the accepted calcula
tion or the Christian era. Some leaned
historians cannot agree whether Christ was
born In the year 747, 749 or 7M, counting
from tbe foundstloa of Boate. Recently
Prol. Sattler, of Munich, has published aa
essay in which be tries to reconcile tbe
testimony of tbe evangelists with tbe oth
er historical data on tbli point. He bat ex
amined four copper coins, newly discover
ed, which were struck in the reign of llerod
Aclipas, one of tbe sons of llerod the
Great, and be comes to tbe conclusion that
Christ was born not In 734, but 749 years
after the foundation ol Home, and therefore
that tbe present year is 1988 Instead of 1383.
This opinion, the Professor tries to corrob
orate, by the testimony of the evangelists.
According to St. Matthew, Jesus was
bom toward the end or tbe reign of Herod
the Great, and when that king died Jesus
was yet a little child. According to St.
Luke Jesus was born in the year in which
by virtue of a decree of Augustus Cxsar,
Cyrenius, Governor or Cyria, madenhe Hrst
census or Judca. Again, St. Luke says that
St. John began to baptise in tbe fifteenth
year of the reign or Tiberius Cesar, and In
that year baptised Jesus, who was tbeu SO
years or age. As to the first testimony
there can be 00 misunderstanding, Christ
being born in 743. was ol course yet a babe
In 750 when Herod died. But tbe other
testimony needs some explanation. Frosa
tbe Brt iarium Imparii (Census of tbe Em
pire) which was added to the will of Au
gustus Cxsar, it Is evident that a tboruugb
census or the countries that composed tbe
Boinau empire must have been made. In
fact, Augustus bad three censuses of his
possessions made, namely, In 728, 748 and
tic. As St. Luke says, In Judea lb first
census must have been ordered In 748.
Probably tbe census was begun In Judea in
747, and I'rof.Satller thinks It was not made
in Jerusalem ealier than 749. He finds that
the four coins enable blm to make clear tbe
testimony of tbe evangelist aa to the flf
tcenthyearjoftbe reign ot Tiberius must be
counted a year and a half earlier (Feb. 780)
when he was appointed co-regent. There
fore the fifteenth year of the reign or Tibe
rius falls lu 780, when t. John baptised
Jesus, who was then about 30 years of age.
An evangelist says that Christ began to
preach forty-six years after tbe temple at
Jerusalem was built by llerod. Now. it is
knowu that the building of tbe temple was
begun eighteen years after Herod was ap
pointed by tbe Roman Senate as regent or
Judea, or in the year 734 form tbe founda
tion of Home. Adding 46 to that year It
gives 7tO as the year In which Christ began
If all these calculations or Prof. Sattler
are correct, then tbe Christian era began
flie years earlier than Is usually supposed,
making the current year 1388 instead of
Na hvllte American.

auce, for I can always sell tlut corn at the
top price iu September, -fter I know what
my growing crop Is going to do."
"Hut you want to know bow I started iu
twenty years ago. Well, I homesteaded a
farm. Then I planted twenty acres of black
walnut trees, and took Id ICO acres more.
So I now have 320 acres."
"Ho vr did you happen to plant black vt al
nuts Instead of cottonwood!" I asked.
"I did it because it was easier. I simply
run furrows six lect apart, drepped the
black walnuts on tho ground low down,
stepped on them and left them till spring,
In tbe spring the black walnuts sprouted.
Tbey were in tbe little hollow and the sun
didn't burn them up. In August when the
black walnuts were up about a foot I turned
a furrow to them on each side, and now I've
got a black walnut woods twenty acres ot
It I've refused $200 an acre for It. Ten
dollars a j ear is enough to make on a crop
that don't even have to be harvested."
I said to Mr. Dixon :
"I saw nine acres of black walnut timber
sold for 910,000 over in Indiana last fall. It
was sold at over a thousand dollars an acre.
You havo got more than jou even dream of.
Ablaek walnut tree planted (not set out)
in rich Kansas soil, tbe natural home of the
black walnut, will be wortli when fifty years
old, fifty dollars. It will gain a dollar a
year. I have seen black walnut trees sold
in Pcunaylvanfa as high as $1S0 to tho tree.
I have seen black walnut stumps so'd for
"Last rail," said Mr. DIxou, "Iplautcd
black walnut, two feet apart, clear n round
my fat m. My I iea is to leave them so tidck
that they will ran to timber, and not to
branches. When tbe are five ) ears old I
will string a barbed wire on them, and
when they arc ten jcars old I'll have six
barbed wires ou them: a living fence. This
fence will be Increaingluvaluecvcryycir.
I will eventually have 10,000 trees, four feet
apart, clear around my farm. When these
trees arc twenty years old, they will be
worth $20 apiece. When they are fifty
years old tbey will be worth 9.V) apiece.
Just multiply 10,000 trees by $10 aud you
will see what my farm will be w orth w by
just $.'100,000 1"
'Your figures astound me Mr. Dixon,"
I said, "but I believe thcro Is much truth
in tbe tbem. Black walnut lumber in New
York Is worth ?120 a thousand. Mahogany
Is worth $1.10 a thousand Black walnut Is
worth just as much in London and Liter
pool as mahogany. Arow of black retlnuts
In Kansas Is worth just as much as a row
of mahogany trees lu Centrtl America.
Southern Kansas is the home ol the black
walnut. Walnut bottom, ou which AVIn-
fleld and Arkansas city are situated, every
acre of It could be made to be worth $300
an acre iu twenty years if Immediately
planted In walnut trees."

To Special Sxaminert :
Numerous complaints have readied this
office that unscrupulous persons are travel
ling throughout tbe country claiming that
they are authorized to represent the Com
missioner of Fenslons, and upon this and
various other pretexts have defrauded pen
sioners and applicants for pension out of
certain sums of money. It Is, therefore,
my duty to direct that tbe Special Examin
ers of this office shall In every inch instance
Inform tbe public that no Special Examiner
or other person employed by this offlce Is
authorized to receive money, either as a
fee or as expenses in my manner; and that
eaeh Special Examiner of the Pension Of
flce Is provided with a certificate over tbe
the signature of the Commissioner of Pen
sions, whose signature Is duly verified by
the lion. Secretary ot the Interior, under
the seal of his department, showing that
the Examiner baa been regularly detailed
by tbe Commissioner from the clerical force
of the Pension OBee, under section 47M of
the Bevised Statutes, and Is qualified to ad
minister oaths, ate. Therefore, If any per
sob, la the absence of such authority should
represent that he ia a Special Examiner of
tke Pension OBee or shall demand or ob
tain mosey under any pretense whatever,
ha may he safely set down as errand aad
swindler, and among the worst of his elaas.

IN THE MOONUSHT.
You love me well, I know, wife.
In spite of frown and to is;
In the moonlight, long ago, wife,
You didn't look so cross ;
In your little scarlet cloak, dear.
You tripped along the moss,
And all at once I spoke, dear,
Though sadly at a loss.
You hung your pretty bead, tbeu.
And answered very low;
I scarce heard what you said, then,
But I knew It wasn't "No."
My joy I could not speak, love,
But a hundred tlmea or so
I kissed a velvet cheek, love.
In tbe moonlight, lone ago.

80D IN NATURE.
In a recent scientific lecture Professor C.
. Young, tbe astronomer, of Princeton
College, used the following language :
"Do not understand me at all as saying
that there Is no mystery about tbe planets'
motion. There is just tbe one single mys
tery gravitation and It is a very profound
one. How It it that an atom of matter can
attract another atom, no matter bow great
the disturbance, no matter what interven
ing substance there may be ; how it n ill act
upon it, or at least behave as II it acted up
on It. I donot know, I cannot tell. Wheth
er tbey are poshed together by meant or an
Intervening ether, or woat Is the action, I
cannot understand. It sUnds with me along
with the fact that when I will that my arm
shall rise, it rises. It Is Inscrutable. All
tbe explanations that have been given of li
seem to me merely to darken counsel with
words and no understanding. Tbey do not
remove tbe difficulty at all. If I were to
say what I really believe, it would be that
tbe motions of the spheres or tbe material
universe stand In some such relation to Him
ln whom all things exist, tbe ever-present
and omnipotent God, as the motions or my
b)dy do to" my will I do not know bow,
and never expeet to kuow.
A citizen of tbe State as well-known as
any other writes us a private letter ou the
late Judge Price. No harm will be done by
copying a few sentences :
"Nate Price bad a mammoth heart that
was ever true to friends and gentle to foes.
Ue bad a Websterian brain, which, under
a bright star, would have shown blm as
tbe Oliver P. Morton of Kansas.
"But he was too far above tbe average
Kansan to be appreciated, for with here
and there an exception, the representative
man must represent only tbe average brain
power of tbe people, and he ia always most
successful who does that without one atom
of heart. By tbe world Nate Price will
soon be forgotten, by tboso who knew bis
heart, bis brain, his truthfulness aud his
earnestness, be will be cherished as too no
ble to be lorgotten. He spent the energies
of his early life for freedom in Kansas, and
later risked his life to savo the Nation.

publics and Republicans always be ungrate

A PR9HIBITI0N VIEW.
A correspondent of tho ConunonitealtA,
said by that paper to be a "prominent pro
hibitionist," sends a long letter on tbe pro
hibition question. He Is a vigorous writer,
and evidently a close and intelligent ob
server. He assumes that a majority of tbe
people of Kansas were Iu favor of prohib
iting open saloons; but that tbeprnblbillon
law Is nut In accord with tbe spirit 01 tbe
constitutional amendment, and is not ap
proved by a majority of tbe people. The
courts therefore, are powerless to enforce
the law; the druggist and doctors of tbe
State regard It with aversion; hundreds of
temperance men, who would favor a law
making war on the open saloons aloue, re
gard tbe present law as an outrage : and to.
with public sentiment eterwhelmtngly
against It, the present law never has been,
Is not, and never will be enforced. "Had
the constitutional amendment," this cor
respondent says, "contained the spirit and
matter of tbe present law, It would never
had a place In tbe statute books." Ui

A Drummer for a Chicago bouse who bad

The fast was eufon rd. Stewart is a great
bolter of food without mastication, and an
eater of tobacco aud swallowerol tbe juice.
Finally, bis stomach rebelled nzalnat tbe
cruel treatment. His first fast was teu days
after which be recovered bis appetite, and
commenced eating ani swallowing tobacco
as usual. Hia next fast, from the same
cause, was forty days, and again his appe
tite returned. Ills last fast, during which
Dr. Tanner found blm, was lengthened out
to fifty days. Tauner Is satisfied that be Is

othe. trial or two be will be able to get
along without rating at all. Aud very like

Don't be afraid of a little romping on tbe

Heaven, who has endowed then largely
with anlmil spirits. These must hare veut
In some way, aud better tbe glow which a
little romping Imparts to the cheek, than a
distorted spine or pallid brow. Health Is
one of tbe greatest ol blessings, and only a
good degree of pbyslrsl exercise can secure
tbls to tbe children. Let tbem romp then,
even II tbey do make some noise and tear
their dresses occasionally and lead you to
cry out. "Ob dear! what shall I do!" Yes,
let tbem romp. Sober times will come by
and by. Life brings Its cares soon enough
to all ; so let tbi childreu be bappy while
they arc young. God made tbem to be hap

unsolicited, such delicious songs; who
