Mr. .I.E. Park's new cooper shop is
rapidly approaching completion. It is
situated near the- Mississippi leveo and
Fourth street; is a two and a half story
fraino structure, about one hundred and
twenty-five feet long nnd thirty-five feet
wide, it will be completed in about a
week, and twenty-eight coopers will be
employed in the establishment. The de
mand upon Mr. Park for barrols of every
description has necessitated the enlarge
ment. Vndoubtedly the most enjoyable oc
casions in this city are the suppers now
and then given by the ladies of our various
churches and of the Temperance Union. At
these suppers our best people invariably
gather in large numbers and, bidding
adcau to their various cares, indulge in k
pleasant chat with friends for an hour or
so and after partaking of a sumptuous sup-
jHtr, prepared by the most cunning hands,
retire to their iiomes benefitted aud refresh
ed, mentally and physically. To-night the
ladies of the Presbyterian church will spread
supper in the Reform hull.
It will be a supper in the preparation of
which the ladies have expended much time
and one that, we feel satisfied, any person
would gladly sell his or her birth right for.
It will consist of oysters and everything

will be served in such a manner that those
who partake will be uriabled to resist the
temptation of complimenting the ladies by

will be charged only halt price.

The funeral of Mrs. Herbert A. Har
roll takes place to day at 1 :H0 p. m. The
procession will leave the residence ol Mr.
Miles Parker, on Walnut, near Eighth street,
and proceed to the Illinois Central truin, at
the toot of Eighth street, which will take
the remains to Villa Ridge for burial.
Mr. llurrcll was born and raised here,
and is known to nearly every one
anil enjoyed tho tincre friendship
of all. She suffered from con
sumption for a long time, and thinking that
her health would bo benefited, Mr. Harrcll
removed to Chicago, where he employed
tho best medical talent in the city to attend
her, but without avail. She grew steadily
worse, and was finally compelled to return
to her old home to past away forever
from among the friends of her youth. Her
death will be sincerely regretted by the en
tire community and the bereaved child,
husband, parents, and other relati res, have
the heartfelt sympathy of all.
The election yesterday, so far as it
concerns the county, was a vindication of
tho idea that national parties formed sole
ly upon questions of a national character,
should not meddle with county politics.
The people have spoken in language that
cannot be mistaken, thoy have deservedly
rebuked the advocates of packed conven
tions and refused to submit to the dictates
of self constituted leaden and demagogues.
The voters of the county, of both colors,
have risen above party ism; have asserted
thoir right to set aside the work of conven
tions, which do not express their will and,
believing that, to the proper administration
of their local affairs it is neccssnry to place
the best mvn in the offices, without any re
gard to their opinions upon national ques
tions or the instructions of self constituted
representatives, have elected the indepen
dent county ticket probably entire.
Messrs. Hodges, Irvln and Fitzgerald
were elected by a majority nt alout 140,
and Mr. T. W. Hulliday received a mnjori y
of about 400. Mr. Leek is the only man
whose election i doubtful. We certainly
have reason to r jru'ce over this result, not
because the men elected were democrats,
but because even in spite ol an exciting
campaign like this was, the people laid
aside their political convictions and voted
for the men they lelieveJ t be the best
fitted to do their work.
-Our public schools are aaiu in perfect
running order. The attendance is, perhaps,
as large now as it will lie during the pres
ent term ; tho scholars are all deeply en
gaged in their studies aud under the ex
cellent management of Prot. AlTord, our
schools promise to n-tain their reputation
abroad. The children, as they pass along
on streets on their w.-.y to aud fmin school
arc oil well bt hr.vcd and g'-eel, aud from
this alone one may well argue
that they are well lhaved ' and

this is wtoinplishcd not by the rod but

children wisely, to train tl.cm aright, to
make study a pleasure and not a task is a
difficult thing for many teacher to accom
plish. They have not themselves leitrntd
the lessons of self-discipline which they ex
pect in their pupils and that are necessary
nnd essential to enable them to govern oth
ers. They cannot subject their own tempers
to the point where they can calmly weigh
the freaks and follies of children and make
allowances for their want of expcrier.ee,

who cannot be controlled by moral siuwicn
is not apt to be by the rod. The experi
ences of the most buuituic planter in old
slave times afford abundant testimony on
this head. The slave who needed whipping
was generally worthless, and as such was
soon sold from the place. Human nature
is the same the world round. Many a child
who was severely whipped to force her or
him to study has become worthless in afttr
life, when by the "law of love" he or she
might have been made a useful and an
honorable citizun. We may say, in con
