Judge Geddes.
Hon. Gorge "W. Gedde, the
democratic, canumaie lor o uuge
of the Supremo Court, and at
firescnt one of the Common
'leas Judges of the Richland
District, started out in life as a
young man by studying law
with lion. C. Delano, at Mt.
Vernon, and Was admitted to
the bar in 1815. lie located
at Mansfield, in 1817, and
commenced the practice of law
in partnership with Judge
Stewart, remaining with him
until he (Stewart) was elected
Judge of the Court of Common
Pleas of that District, in 1851.
Mr. Geddes then formed a part
nership with Hon. Jacob
BrinkerholT, which continued
until 1855
when lie was
ft'as tiec
hupreme i
ted
Judge
of the
Court of the State. In 18.rG,
Mr. Geddes wrw first elected
Judge of the Court of Com
mon Picas of the Richland
District by a majority of over
four hundred, at a time when
the District gave a Republican
majority ; he was re-elected in
1801, without opposition, and
again re-elected in 1868 by a
majority of over eight hundred,
when the district gave only
about three hundred demo
cratic majority. A corres
pondent of the Cincinnati Com
mcrcial, writing from Mansfield,
alter stating that the selection
of Judge Geddes has been re-
1 A I O 1 11
ceivea witn javor uy an who
know -him Democrats and
Republicans alike goes on as
follows; and it is worth quo
ting as Republican testimony :
'The Judge i9 a man of abil-
'it i t m
ity, lias a number ot years ex
perience as Judge of the Dis
trict Court, which office he
now holds; ia a good, fair
minded, generous, reliable citi
zen of the conservative stamp,
and as a neighbor urbane,
sympathetic and popular. If'
a Democrat is to be elected.
the Republicans of Mansfield
are very wi
Geddes should represent them
in the place; so long ana so
worthily filled by Judge Brink
erhoff, Aside from occasional
indulgence of bitterndss in pol
itics, the Judge has done noth
ing to alienate the support of
all parties; and the probabili
ties are that however unexcep
tionable the nominee of the
Republican side may be, Judge
Geddes will carry, as usual
whenever he came up for oflicc,
quite a number of Republican
votes. If the Judge lias any
fault it is his extreme partisan-
ism under any nnt an circum-
i in
stances. He is a leading mem
.
ber of the Methodist Episcopal
Church, and takes part, orally
at least, in the temperanee and
moral reform movements of the
day."
A strong reason in favor o
the election of J udgo Geddes
to the Supreme Iletach is to be
found in the fact that t hat court,
ae .now constituted, ia unani
mously Republican. Politics
is supposed to be excluded
from the Judiciary, but yet
justice and propriety would
seem to indicate that the 20,
000 democratic voters of the
State should have at least one
representative on the bench.
This fact,... and the excellence
of the democratic nominee, will
probably influence many Re
publican voters this fall. In
some States the principle of
minority representation has
been adopted in electing Sil
preme Court Judges, aol we
believe it will ultimately pre
vail throughout the Union. It
will obviate one of the most
cogent objections urged against
an elective 'judiciary.

Preparing Tripe.
As soon as possible alter the
animal is killed have the stom
ach emptied and well washed
in cold water; sprinkle June or
wood ashes over tue inside;
fold it carefully and lay it into
a deep vessel; cover it with
tepid water for. six hours;
scrape off the dark part. "When
clean, rinse it in several waters,
and again lay the tripe away
for a day and night in weak
salt water, in a perfectly clean
vessel. Roil the tripe (putting
it in cold water) until a straw
can be easily run through it,
and the edges look transparent;
skim closely, cut it in uniform
slices of convenient size for
serving, pour over milk to cov
er it (part water it desired) and
keep it closely covered. Should
the milk turn a little sour, it
will not injure the tripe, as it
is usual to add vinegar in cook
ing it. It should not be kept
long. Fry, stew, or make into
a hash.
Only One Child.
It is harder to bring up one
child well than six. In a large
family, the children help to
bring one another up. it is
not merely that the elder ones
asist in taking- care ot the
younger, bnt they all influence
one another profitably in oth
er ways; vanity js sometimes
lauehed into modesty, and ar-
osrance is snubbed into liutnil-
itv. Laxsli child is ept con
stantlv in mind that others
have rights and reelings, and
. ....
preferences, as well as himself;
he forms the habit ot consider
insr those rights, feelings and
preferences: and he is thus pre
pared to "get along," as we say,
with those among whom his lot
mav be cast. Parents with one
child have a difficult task, and
their best way is to get for their
solitary chick as many play
fellows ot its own age as they
conveniently can. It rs bad
for a child to associate too much
with persons of mature age.

Korn.
BY JOSH BILLINGS.
it
us
as
as
Korn, is a serial',- i' am glad
ov it.
It got its name-front Se.iies,
a primitiff woman, and in' her
day, the goddess ov oafs, afld
,:u i:l- ' ..
Korn -is sometimes called
maize, ana it grows in sum
parts of the Western country,
very amaizenly. ' ,; ;"
1 hav seen it out thare 18
foot hi (i don't mean the aktiial
korn, but the tree on winch it
grows.) r
lvorn has ears, but never has
but one ear, which is as del! as
an adder.
. Injun meal is made ttft ov
korn, and korn dodgers iz
made out ov injun meal, and
korn dodgers are the. tnffest
hunks ov the bread purswa-
shun , known to man.
Korn dodgers are made ov
water, with injun' meal mixed
into it and then baked on a
hard board in the presence ov
a hot fire.
When vu kant drive a 10
penny nail into them, with a
sledge hammer, tlicy are sed,
by good judges, to be well
done, and are ready to be
chawed upon;
They will keep 5 years, in a
damp place, and not gro tender, i
and a dog hit with one ov them
will yell for a week, and then
crawl under the barn, and,mut-i
ter for two days more. ' , ' :
I h&y knawed two hours mi
self on one side ov a korn
dodger without producing enny
result.
They git the name of dodg-!
er from the immediate necessi
ty oy dodgeing, if one is hove
horizontally at yu in anger.
It iz far better tew be smote
hi a 3 year old steer, than a
korn dodger," that is only three
hours old.
Korn was fust discovered hi
injun, but whare they found
it i don't k no," and i' dont kno
as i care.
Whiskee (noble whiskce) is
made out ov korn, and whiskee
is one ov the greatest bles-iings
known tew man.
We never should hav bin
able tew fill our State prisons
with cnergctik men, and our
poor houses with good eaters,
if it want for noble wkiskee.
We never should have had
enny temyerance eons -ov soci
ety, nor prize fites, nor good
murders, nor phatt aldermen,
nor whiskee rings, nor nothing
it it want tor blessed whiskee.
If it want for korn, how
could enny body git korned?
And if it want for gitting
korned what would life be
worth?.
We would all eiuk down to
the level ov the brutes if it
want for gitting korned.
The brutes owt git korned
they hain't got enny reason
nor soul
We often hear ov "drunken
brutes," this is a kompliment
to oxen which don't belong to
therrf.
I have seen corn sold for 10
cents a bushel, in sum parts ov
the western country. U is so
mutch that tharc aint no good
law against stealing it
In konklusion. if you want
to git a 6ure krop ov korn, and
a good price for it, feed about
4 quarts ot it to a .shanghi
rooster then murder the roost
er immeiiatclv. and Sell him for
17 cents a pound krop and all.

How to Manage Nails.
Every farmer who has had
occasion to drive a nail into,
seasoned oak posts is aware of
its liability to bend and break.
If the point be moistened in
the mouth - it' will generally
drve morer kindly. Oil is still
better, but then, it is inconven
ient to dip each nail separately
into, it Another point ob
served 'is that l6rvrds become
loose, eventually from the rust
ing of nails, which communi
cating to. the wood causes not
only ani . enlargement! bf the
nail hole but the wearing aWay
of the nail itsolf, rendering' .'tjlie
fesce or Tmijdiiig shaky and irt
secure ' Tins' may be prevent
ed by heating 8ny rough grease
until it smokes and then pour
ing it over the nail's to be used.
The grease will penetrate the
pores of the iron and cause the
nails to last an indefinite period
without rusting. Besides this
no trouble will be experienced
in driving them into the hard
est wood. The reason is that
the coating of grease prevents
contact with the air and conse
quently oxidation. Oxygen is
the great destroyer ot iron
and moistuie is the inducing
cause. Anything which is kept
from contact with the air is
preserved indefinitelyj and if it
is kept dry the effect is measur
ably the same. Paint upon
buildings' prevents the contact
of air and moisture. If the
whole fence or building cannot.
be painted, the heads at least
of the nails should be touched
therewith.
Reader did you ever notice

paper is a poor man's library, a
store ot knowledge, an inex
haustible supply of information.
Its weekly or monthly visits
always brings something new
and opens yet another gate
way to the broad, rich fields ot
learning and knowledge, and
therd is no excuse, in this age
of cheap literature for a family
to be without a periodical of
some kind. It is a duty they
owe to themselves to surround
themselves with ftll the litera
ture their circumstances will
warrant them in securing.
Many a man who claims to

How we Go to Sleep.
The immediate antecedents
of sleep as Inn gouty a' . Berisa-
mm n Kill lib umiri UYV-
ids, partial tciriporary , relaxa
tion of .certain muscles;' a?
shown by-nodding and drop
ping the head upoii- this' breast,
comparative obtuscuess to ex
ternal ; impressions, etc.,' call
for ..no special remark. The.
order in' which the muscles lose
their pbwer, is, however1' de-
serving of ft passing notice.-
The muscles' ''which move the
arms and legs usually become
relaxed before those whiclvsup
port the head, , and the latter
before - those, which maintain
tiverbody in"itn' erect position.
There are; however,.' many ex
ceptions to this rule,- as may be
seen in church on a hot Sunday
when some of the congrega
tion are almost certain to be
seen with their cuius niVietlv
esting on tneir chests, but yet
tightly sprasnincf their w'av'er
books -Moreover,, in relation
to the special senses, that of
sight is the first lost, the clos
ing of the eye-l'i'd setting up n
barrier between' the retiftw and
the extern-ali World;' but inde
pendently of the eyelids if
they have not been removed
by the surgeon, or cannot be
closed through disease the
sight is -still tfie first sense
whose function is abolished.
Some animals, as the hare do
not shut their eyes wben asleep;
and in 'case's of somnambulism
the eyes remain open, although
the sense of sight is tempora
rily lost. ;The other senses, as
Dr. Hammond tells us, are not
altogether abolished; but their
acnteness is much iesseod.
Tate is the first to disappear,
and then smell; hearing follows,
and touch is the most persistent
of the senses. So, conversely,
a person is most easily awakeu
ed by tactual, expressions, next
in order by sounds, atd then
by smell. .
