The Herald wishes the boys good luck and lots of it. Centreville Index, 14th: Wo owe an apology to the citizens of Hurley for giving space to a scurrilous article from "Subscriber" under the caption of Hurley Hits which appeared in our last issue. The writer in a most un gentleinanlv and uncalled for manner' abused a number of Hurley's best peo ple calling names and making charges which, we are told, cannot be substan tiated. As we had never been in Hur ley and had only met but a few of its citizens we thought the author might have a plausible reason for his re marks, but on making the town a visit last Saturday onr mind was soon dis abused of such an idea. Temperance or any cause never gains anything by using abusive language, and the indi vidual who insists on such a course, we believe, should be excommunicated. Mark Us High. Iowa City (la.) Press. To say that all were pleased with the Oakes Merrie Makers would but feebly express the general opinion of their audience. Iowa City, since we have had the new opera house, sees the best of entertainments, and is given to criticism, so that an exhibition must be good to win applause, and nothing that ever came here was so much applauded as this. We hope that they will mark us high in their list for their next tour. We clip the following: item from the Vermillion Republican, published by H. B. Chaffee, pioneer editor of the pioneer paper or Turner county: Bro. Hackett, of the Parker New Era, seems to be very much exercised about which was the pioneer paper of Turner county. The writer never supposed that it was a debatable question until the New Era called it up, and does not now so tar as the facts are concerned, and if farther evidence was wanted Bro. Hackeit shows conclusively that his paper is two removes from that of the parent stem whose name he in part ap propriates without the right of pur chase, or the asking, and blushinely calls it his own, and the pioneer one of Turner county. Bro. Hackett evidently overreaches sound discretion and truthfulness when he presumes as much as he does. The ladies of Grace church will give a Rainbow Party at School House hall next Thursday evening, May 27th. Tickets, including refreshmentt, will be sold at 50 cents. These parties are all the rage east, and a jolly time may be expected. Each lady will provide herself with an apron, the bottom left unhemmed, and will bring needle and thread for the completion of the work, which is to be done by the gentleman drawing the number corresponding with that placed upon the apron. The Ottawa, 111., Press says: The Oakes Merrie Makers proved to our people that they are likely to be de ceived in two ways. First, by the com pany that has all programme and lit tle performance and second, by a troupe like the Oakes Merrie Makers whose bills did not say enough. That is, they give more and better than the people had learned to expect. It is one of the few companies that deal strictly honorably with the public. At School House hall. Hurley, Monday May 24. Reserved seats for sale at Postofflce. Justice Elliott's court is busy v^th an interesting suit. J. P.

It is claimed that Johnson has disposed of properly left with|him for repairs, and a criminal prosecution is also on the docket. Fifty stock hogs wanted at the Hur ley creamery, by C. C. Skiene. Will do Well tu Come Again. Uuron Leader. Those who attended the vocal and instrumental treat at the opera house last Saturday night pronounced the Oakes Merrie Makers and Christal Chimes Co., a little out of the common order o'.' traveling troupes. They fre quently stirred the house to an uproar ous applause and otherwise delighted those In attendance, who favorably ex pressed themselves in entire exercise. The solos were excel lent.

NUMBER 3. WASHINGTON LETTER. From our Regular Correspondent. WA8HINQTON, May 10,1880. There is a good deal of bustle about the White House just now which is not due to annual hcrase cleaning. Society young ladies Who profess to know all about it assign tbe cause to the approaching transfer of Miss Cleveland from the exalted social post she has fill ed for more than a year, and the suc cession of Miss Folsom to the position of first lady of the land. After a three week's discussion of the great river and harbor bill, the house voted 815,000,000 to patch up the water ways of the country, and dozens of vil lages will rejoice to learn that the creeks which meander past them are going to be improved so that the local cabbage crop can go to market quickly and easi ly. But the capital of the nation was ignored in the grand dole. The Poto mac flats get nothing. The tendency of congress to waste time on insignificant subjects received striking exemplification during the past week. The house spent one whole day's session in fruitlessly discussing the war services of a twelve-year-old boy. His claim to a bounty of 8200 led to a reviv al of war memories in which the battle Richmon, Kentucky, plaved an import ant part. This boy being refused a mus ter in an Ohio regiment on account of his age and size, it was claimed that he purchased a uniform and served in the regiment a year, acting as a bugler and performing gallant scout duty. Representative Bragg, Wisconsin, in a sarcastic speech, said the great patri otism which had been displayed by the boy seemed to have oozed away, and he had become a beggar, asking money of the government. A touch of sentiment was added to a picture of a battle scene by placing in the fore ground the figure of a dead drummer boy,-with his drum besides him. But it was only sentiment. In reality, the drummer boy, at the be ginning of a battle, could be seen break ing the head of his drum and running to the rear to do hospital service. One of the most glorious memories of the war wai of the noble women who be came nurses in order to alleviate the sufferings of the soldier, but now these women were found coming to the war claims committee, begging that their gratuitous services should bo coined in to dollars and cents. That knocked all the sentiment out ol the thing. He wanted some of the rich memories of the war preserved. He did not want them all brought down to dollars and cents. Representative Weaver, of Iowa, af ter admitting that war pictures were very deceptive, called attention to that particular humbug in American mili tary history, wliice pictured an officer leading a charge. Theoflicers were gen erally where their order and rules of war required them to be, in a safe place in the rear, while the privates did the shooting, fighting and dying. Mr. Johnston, of Indiana, maintained that a lad might do good service in a regiment, and he instanced the cases of two boys in his regiment who had done their duty gallantly at the battle of Richmond, Ky. They did as much for their country as did the man who led the Iron Brigade and who now attacked a boy who had bared his breast to save his country. The gentleman from Wis consin, Mr. Bragg, had attacked the nurses in the army. If a poor woman had given her service to her country, and now, with health shattered and means gone, asked the country to do something for hor, was it no as honora ble for the government to help her as to raise the pension of a general's widow from 830 to $50?
