A Letter from "Dan."
To the Editor of the Vinton Record.
To the Editor of the Vinton Record. FEBRUARY, 24th 1874.
Ever Biucelbt "women's war"
commenced I have been read
ing both the RhcoKD and En
quirer and have watched with
deep interest the progress of
events in our town. The re
formation has been wonderful,
and all good citizens bope, a
lasting one. If 1 am not mis
taken, a movement of similar
character occurred in our town
some years ago, and the re
sults, bo far as the present
movement baa gone, were very
much the same. The benefit;
arising I'rjm the first war were
of short duration and the "old
topers" soon went at it again
worse, if possible than before.
Saloons increased in numbers,
and to vending the juice that
inebriates was added ample ac
commodations for "private par
ties" who wished to indulge in
other affairs very closely con
nected with whisky drinking,
such as draw poker, keno, rou
lette, &c. During the late
"misunderstanding" with the
south there was not a town of
its population in Ohio which
could boast of a better display
or greater variety of card play
era and the "fancy" than our
own McArthur. But times
have changed, and let as hope
from the past we have learned
just how to circumvent the
boys in their nefarious business
The town council has almost
complete control of this matter
and can do more than all the
ladies combined to atop the
traffic, add. the question now to
settle is, ' Will council do it!"
If the council aforesaid show a
disposition to shirk this respon
sibility 1st the ladies organize
a campaign against it and
storm thpir works as they did
those of the saloon keepers.
The surrender ' ot the- whole
gang will soon follow. It wont
do any harm to try it, and the
advantage now gained should
not be lost by a negleet ot this
duty. By the way, 1 should
like to know why the Enquirer
wishes to impress its readers
with the idea that tha Record
is opposed te tbls movement)
I have ieM nothing id font
columns tending in tbatdirec-!
tibn; on the contrary, yeu have
favored it all along. I fear
our, friend Bowen is too ready
to catch at straws, for I have
noticed several accusations of
a similar nature In his paper
lately, which were not substan
tiated by facts. lie seems de
terminedio obtain all the "re.
ligious," as well as "county paU
ronage." . We admire bis cour
age but Condemn his judgment,
for he is certainly aware ot the
fact that he can not servo Uod
and Mammon at the same time.
If he is going to publish a re
ligicuis paper and make Chris
tianity a profession, all right,
but if he still intends to serve
thd devil he can not do so In a
more acceptable manner to his
"Royal Devil8hip," than by ed
iting the McArthur Enquiier.

Good Enough for Every Day.
I am vexed with gMs sayingi
"Oh it's good enough for every
day I". A girl will set the table
forjjdinner; as she throws the
dirty cloth on in a careless, un
tidy way, stained with; coffee
and eggs and fruit juices, she
will say, it's good enough tor
every daynobody here but
our own folkl
As she puis on the cream
pitcher, minus a handle, or su
gar bowl with a broken lid,
she thinks, "Oh, there'll be no
body here this timel"
She waits on the table With
out having brushed her hair or
put on a fresh colar; with, may
be, a button or two of! her
dress but she thinks: 'Hey,
only our own folks!"
Oh, my dear girl, don't do
itl How can your parents ad
mire you, or your brother and
sisters leel proud of you, and
what a low estimate of woman
kind you are giving them to
carry out into the world with
them. When you do not re
spect yourself, you feel as
mean as you look. Don't al
low yourself to have "company
.Banners" be neat and lacfy
like all the time use good
language, and encourage your
family in doing the same.
Some girls always have to
run and bide, or fix up, when
ever they hear a rap at the
door. How common, when
there is a rip to hear girls say:
"Ob, see bow awful I do
'Oh, look at this old rag of
a dress! I can't go see there,
This Is a bad state of affairs.
Farmers' wives and daugh
ters have said to me, "I can't
go looking neat about my
work. I hare to milk and bake
and churn and teed pigs; how
can If If you were in my place
you would see."
To a woman who says she
can't sea how a farmers' wife
or daughter can be tidily dress
ed while employed with all
sorts of work, we say:
"Calico is cheap, and plain
neat dresses easily made'; have
plenty of them then. You can
have two or three large, white
aprons with ties, half a dozen
collars made to pin on in
trice, and you can take time
enough to brush your hair

morning, when you wash.

The marriage ceremory is
performed ennousiy by the
Esquimaux. When, a boy kills
a polar bear, it is considered
sufficient proof of hie ability to
maintain a family; he is, there

of dried seal-skin and flageltate
him unmercifully as he passes,
making at the same time every
effort to arrest him in his
course. If, despite these little
impediments to matrimonial

Victim, the biting and scratch
ing scene Is renewed, and in
all prbability, he is compelled
to release her, and the chase,
with its attendant discomforts,
is resumed. Should he over
come all obstacles, the third
capture proves effectual, and
the victim, ceases her strug
gles, is led away amid the ac
clamationa and rejoicings of
the assembled multitude.
An exchange thus discourses
on our progress in one hundred
years: "Only think what
hundred years has wrought.
One hundred years agd bur re
volutionary ancestors made the
biggest 'drawing' of tea in Bos
ton harbor of which there is
any record, it took all the
water in the harbor and three
hundred and forty-two chests
of prime tea for the drawing.
What a vast amount of history
has been made on this side of
the Atlantic in that eventful
one hundred years. Then the
entire white population num
bered scarcely three millions.
Now there are seventeen States
with over one million each.
New York alone has a popula
tion exceeding that of all the
colonies by nearly A million
and a half. Pennsylvania ex
ceeds it by half a million, ?hd
Ohio and Illinois each nearly
equal the entire white popula
tion of the American colonies
one hundred years ago."
How to Turn Out.
The duke of Wheillngion ways
slept oh an iron camp
bedstead eighteen inches wide.
"When a man wants to turn
over," he said, "it is time for
him to turn out;" The Emper
or Nicholas did the same, Mr
Owen says: The principle is
well enough; but I think the
detail is wrong. Sleep itself is
far too important to be made
My old friend Roseiter filed
his alarm so that, at the fore
ordained moment, the bed
clothed were dragged from the
bed, and Rossiter lay shivering.
I have myself somewhere the
drawings and specifications for
a patent which arranges a set
of cams and wheelWrrrk under
the bed stead, which, at the
moment appointed, lift the pil
low end sit feet, arid deliver
the "sleeper on the now hori
zontal foot board; tie is hot
apt to sleep long after that.
