We arc requested by leading members
and ollicials of the lie, I Kibbuii Club to
say that 'he rules and regulations to
govern the club-room, as published by
tlie iioi ye'terday, aud the Hili ktin on
last Sunday, were without authority;
that they wvre placed in tho hands ol
the cifnimittee lor revision, and
ought not to have been publi-hed until
so ordered by tho club; that they will be
revised and so modified before their tinal
adoption at the next meeting, as to give
complete satisfaction to all our people.
We are glad to hear this, and we take
pleasure in making this expiation. In
our own detente, we desire to fay that
having heard ol the adop
tion of the rules, wo were
anxious to get them for publication on
Saturday, but could not. Our neighbor
of tho Bi'M.ktix was more fortunate,
however, as he got them and published
them Sunday morning, and we copied
them yesterday, without any thought of
doing the club a wrong. Now will the
Bri.LETiN be trank enough to tell the
public where lie got the ''rules. Ac." and
who gave him authority to publish them?
We will put this matter, so far as we
are concerned, to rest iu a very few
words. It is true that we did not ask
any ol the "lending members", or "of
ficials of the lied Hibbon club" for au
thority to publish the proceedings
of the meeting at which the
rules about which so much has been
made were adopted. The meeting was
public, and we did not deem it uecessary
to aii the privilege of publishing the
proceedings. Aud further, the "leading
members'' or the "oflhials" who assert
that the rrtles "were placed in
the hands of the coinmltteo
for revision," assert that which the fact!
in the ctse disprove. Without saying
more we here copy a portion of the re-1
cord ol the proceedings of the last meet
ing, and to it we Invite the especial at
tentlon ol the "leading members'' and
"officials"' who have taken tho matter so
much to heart. Tho record says that
S. P. Wheeler submitted tho following
rules and regulations lor tho govern
ment of the Beading Room, which were
on motion adopted, and the executive
committee were Instructed to have copies
thereof printed mid pasted in the hall
and Heading Boom, viz.:
Hero follow the rules as published in

Our fall and winter term of common

as our knowledgo extends we have a

being taxed to educate in brunches, that
should be studied in college at the ex

Wea-k: Why shall a whole district
be taxed to pay from U0 to 100 dollars per
month lor tuition, Just because there are
2 or 3 scholars who wi-h to study physio
logy? Our convictions are that it is t
swindle, and the law should be to amend
ed us to allow nothing taught iu our dis
trict schools above what is laid down in
a second grade certificate. We are aware
that ours is a progressive age, and we
are glad ol it ; but surely in many things
we are progressing in a manner unnec
essary and uncalled for. So progres
sive Is our ago that we must
change our school books entirely too of
ten. Furthermore, small children are
compelled, in nearly all our schools, to
pursue Irom three to five studies, the
comcqucu.ee is a majority of our children

As we have used the word "Shoddy" ogreat runny times and becu asked the mean
ing ol the sitine, wo here give the same, as lar as our limited education will allow.
"Shoddy" according to tho views of a great many is u entirely new word hav
ing been Invented during our late war to designate a class ot men who were poor
and without education, becoming suddenly very rich through immense government
contracts; but w hen the word is used in reference to goods, Webster tells ns It is:
"Old woolen cloths and refuse goods torn into libren In a mill, and res pun Into yarn
with the additiou of a little Iresh wool. .xiiniuonda." '
But, then, Webster was not a clothier, and did not live iu the age when there
were "ways that were durk and tricks that were vain," and consequently could
not give a correct definition. t
"Shoddy" in tlie German is ',,',.,. H ;,IU," which means, "the remains,
scraps of wool made into frchh cloth." To get the correct definition we must go
back to that most ancient aud expressive language man has cycr produced, the
"Hebrew.'' m the times when tho Jewish rcligluu was in its zenith, we see that
the Priests ami High-Priests were forbidden to wear In the sanctuary anything that
resembled "Shoddy," (or what is called In the Hebrew "Schadiven") garments com
posed of "linen and cotton, cotton and wool, or anything ol two different products,"
tor it was considered unholy to wear "Shoddy Goods" during devotion.
So you will perceive that tlie word is riot new but was used before the Chris
tian era. ( )l courso the goods were used to such au extent that it required a law to
keep it from being tued in the 1'cmplc.
This class ol goods is manufactured and sold in large quantities to-day right In
our midst ; wo raise our voice in condemnation thereof, and tell tho public what it
is. Beware. Buy no Shoddy goods, lor they arc not cheap at any price. Shun a
house which keeps, or is even suspected of keeping the same. Wo were the first In
this city to raise our voice against it, tor we discovered that It was difficult to sell
"pure and holy" garments while "Shoddy" goods were in tho market.
